Latest Player Updates


The New England Patriots D/ST recorded one fumble and two sacks in the team's 14-10 Week 13 win over the Bills.

Fantasy Impact: The Patriots D/ST held Josh Allen and the Bills to just 230 total yards on an incredibly gusty night in Buffalo. They remain the top-scoring defense in fantasy this season, and will take on the Colts in Week 15 after their upcoming bye.

Patriots kicker Nick Folk hit 2-of-2 field goals in New England's win over Buffalo. He did not attempt an extra point.

Fantasy Impact: On an incredibly gusty night in Buffalo, Folk was actually rather fortunate to have converted on two field goal attempts, including a 41-yarder in the second quarter. The Patriots will be on bye in Week 14, and then travel to Indianapolis for Week 15. Folk should be in for a busier day against the Colts, where fantasy managers can continue viewing him as a top-10 kicking option.

Hunter Henry did not draw a target in Monday night's victory over Buffalo.

Fantasy Impact: The Patriots recorded 46 run plays and three pass plays on Monday night, due to strong, gusty winds in Buffalo. As a result, Henry essentially had no chance to produce in this game. He'll take on the Colts in Week 15 after the bye week, where he'll remain a touchdown-dependent TE2.

Kendrick Bourne had zero targets in the Patriots' Week 13 win over the Bills. He rushed once for three yards.

Fantasy Impact: The Patriots registered 46 run plays and three pass plays on Monday night, due to strong, gusty winds in Buffalo. This shattered Bourne's chances to produce, as he saw zero targets and ran one time for three yards. He'll take on the Colts in Week 15 after the bye week, where fantasy owners can continue viewing him as a WR5.

Jakobi Meyers had zero targets in Monday night's win in Buffalo.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy managers will obviously be disgruntled by Meyers receiving zero targets this week, until they see that Mac Jones registered just two completions for 19 yards. It was an incredibly gusty night in Buffalo, as the Patriots called 46 run plays and three pass plays. They'll be on bye in Week 14, and then travel to Indianapolis for Week 15. Meyers was coming off a season-high 98-yard effort last week, and should bounce back for that matchup.

Rhamondre Stevenson rushed 24 times for 78 yards in the Patriots' victory versus the Bills.

Fantasy Impact: On an incredibly gusty night where the Patriots called 46 run plays and three pass plays, Rhamondre Stevenson was fed a career-high 24 carries. While he wasn't very efficient with 3.3 yards per attempt and failed to score a touchdown, he got the job done with 78 yards to keep the Patriots in first place in the AFC. A strong majority of his carries occurred after Damien Harris was forced out with a hamstring injury, who ultimately recorded just one touch in the second half. Stevenson and the Patriots will be on bye next week, and then travel to Indianapolis in Week 15. He'll continue to serve as a FLEX option in deeper leagues for that matchup, but immediately vaults to RB1 status if Harris cannot make it back in time.

Damien Harris rushed 10 times for 111 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's win over Buffalo. He exited with a hamstring injury in the second quarter and returned midway through the third quarter for a 22-yard rush, but did not receive any additional touches the rest of the game.

Fantasy Impact: Harris accounted for the play of the game, where he broke loose for an easy 64-yard touchdown run midway through the first frame. On a night where the Patriots called 46 run plays and three pass plays, he was incredibly efficient with 11.1 yards per carry. Unfortunately, he suffered a hamstring injury late in the first half, which prevented him from having an even bigger night. While Harris was able to make it back to the field in the third quarter and register a 22-yard run, he was subsequently caught limping out of bounds. He did not record any more touches the rest of the contest. Fortunately, he'll have the upcoming bye to heal up and get ready for the Colts in Week 15. In the event that Harris is forced to miss any action, Rhamondre Stevenson will vault into RB1 territory.

Houston Texans' D/ST gave up 389 yards and 31 points in Sunday's loss to the Colts. They also forced one fumble and sacked Carson Wentz once for a seven-yard loss.

Fantasy Impact: The Texans' D/ST, like most of their team, can be left on waivers for fantasy purposes.

Houston Texans' K Ka'imi Fairbarn did not attempt a field goal or PAT in Week 13 loss to Colts.

Fantasy Impact: Fairbairn doesn't see the volume needed in fantasy kickers. He can be left on waivers in all leagues.

Patriots rookie QB Mac Jones completed 2-of-3 passes for 19 yards in the Patriots' victory over the Bills. He additionally had five carries for -3 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Jones threw an unimaginable three total passes on Monday night, as both teams dealt with strong, gusty winds in Buffalo. This resulted in 46 run plays for the Patriots, where Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson combined for 189 yards to notch a key win over the Bills. Jones will take on the Colts in Week 15 after the bye week, where he'll get the benefit of the dome.

Houston Texans' TE Pharaoh Brown caught 4-of-5 targets for 23 yards in Sunday's loss to the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: The positive news is he had more yards and targets than any other tight end on the team. The negative is he remains un-rosterable and un-trustable for fantasy purposes.

Category: Game Recaps


Houston Texans' WR Davion Davis failed to catch either of his two targets in Sunday's loss to the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: The second-year man out of Sam Houston can be left on waivers on all leagues that don't offer a large taxi-squad. In that case stashing him hurts nothing.

Houston Texans' WR Chris Conley failed to catch any of his four targets in Sunday's loss to the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: While Conley was second among receivers in targets, there is no clear No. 2 WR opposite of Brandin Cooks. Conley can be stashed in deeper dynasty leagues, but he shouldn't be started at this time.

Category: Game Recaps


Houston Texans' WR caught 3-of-6 targets for 38 yards, adding one carry for 16 yards in Sunday's loss to the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: Cooks missed two days of practice last week with an illness, but that didn't stop him from resuming his typical role as the Texans WR1. The 28-year-old has caught 65 passes for 742 yards and three touchdowns over 12 games in 2021. Cooks owns a huge target share and is a solid fantasy WR2 for fantasy purposes. The former first-round pick's biggest flaw is his QB play.

Category: Game Recaps


Houston Texans' RB Royce Freeman rushed three times for 10 yards, adding one reception for 11 yards in Sunday's loss to the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: After being cut by Denver and signing with the Panthers ahead of Week 1, Freeman found himself on the Houston Texans roster ahead of Week 13. Freeman was listed as the team's fourth running back depth chart but saw the second most playing time of the backs. Still, Freeman's fantasy value is nonexistent as the Houston backfield as a whole is a hard one to trust.

Houston Texans' RB Rex Burkhead rushed eight times for 30 yards, adding one reception on two targets for 15 yards in Sunday's loss to the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: Burkhead led Houston's awful backfield Sunday. While his volume is appealing, his efficiency makes him almost unstartable for the playoffs. However, he could be a dart-throw-add in deeper leagues due to projected weekly volume.

Arizona Cardinals' D/ST allowed 329 yards along with 22 points, but forced four turnovers in Sunday's win over the Bears.

Fantasy Impact: Seven sacks and four interceptions in the last two weeks, the Cardinals are a streamable defense in the fantasy playoffs.

Category: Game Recaps


Arizona Cardinals' K Matt Prater made both of his field goal attempts and all three of his PAT attempts with a long of 33 yards in Sunday's win over the Bears.

Fantasy Impact: Matt Prater is an accurate kicker for one of the best offenses in NFL, making him a must-start weekly.

Category: Game Recaps


Arizona Cardinals' TE Zach Ertz caught one of his two targets for ten yards in Sunday's win over the Bears.

Fantasy Impact: It wasn't a very busy day for Ertz, who was targeted just twice in Week 13. However, he remains a high-end TE1 for fantasy purposes and a must-start.

Category: Game Recaps


Arizona Cardinals' WR Rondale Moore caught one of his two targets for eight yards, while adding three carries for two yards in Sunday's win over the Bears.

Fantasy Impact: After a week where he caught 11 passes, Moore showed his boom or bust finishing under 11 yards for the second time in three weeks. While it's hard to trust him in starting lineups, the upside remains there.
