Latest Player Updates

Travis Coons converted all three field goal attempts and his three extra-point attempts in Sunday's win over the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Impact: Coons hit from 21, 33, and 36 yards. Considering the bad luck the Chargers have had with kickers, Coons should stick around for a while.

Keenan Allen caught 6-of-8 targets for 111 yards in Sunday's Week 14 victory over the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Impact: Allen's eight targets were the lowest over the past four weeks, but he produced some big numbers. Allen was kept out of the end zone since Week 10. He remains a lock for the fantasy playoffs, and will not be deterred by the return of Marcus Peters in Week 15.

Cooper Kupp had five receptions on seven targets for 118 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact: Kupp finally got into the end zone in Week 14, giving owners who started him a nice surprise. Kupp has been a solid PPR option this season, especially while Robert Woods has missed time with a shoulder injury. Woods is expected to return next week and that may take away a few of Kupp's targets, but he is still a WR3 in PPR formats especially going into Seattle next week. Jarred Goff trusts Kupp and that gives him a solid floor, especially in tougher match-ups for the Ram offense.

Tyrell Williams caught 4-of-4 targets for 132 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers Week 14 win over the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Impact: Tyrell Williams topped 100 yards for the second time this season. Most of the yardage came on a 75-yard strike. He's a penny stock in fantasy, and be glad if you played him. The Chargers take on the Chiefs in Week 15.

Derrick Henry rushed eight times for 20 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' Week 14 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. He had no targets as a receiver.

Fantasy Impact: Henry's touchdown in the second quarter was from six yards out. It may have gone to DeMarco Murray if it was any closer. Henry's production continues to be stunted with Murray's presence. The good news for keeper leagues, Murray's production will call into question his roster spot in 2018. Henry remains a risky flex play in Week 15 against the 49ers.

Sammy Watkins had three receptions on seven targets for 21 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact: If it wasn't for the touchdown, this would have been a bust game for Watkins in a decent match-up against the Eagles. Watkins has scored in three straight games however, which has kept his value alive. With fellow receiver Robert Woods expected to return next week and a streak of touchdowns that is going to be hard to maintain, expect Watkins to settle back in to the WR3/4 territory with some upside in Week 15.

DeMarco Murray rushed only 11 times for 34 yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for 13 yards in the Titans' Week 14 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Murray's value has become completely touchdown dependent. He even lost a touchdown run to Derrick Henry. He has been held to under 50 yards in five of the last six games. He will be a risky Flex play from here on out. The Titans play the San Francisco 49ers in Week 15.

Greg Zuerlein made all five of his extra point attempts but didn't attempt a field goal in Sunday's loss to Philadelphia.

Fantasy Impact: This was a disappointing day for Zuerlein as you could normally count on a few field goals to get you some extra points. Zuerlein is still a high end kicker and its rare to see a team score more than 30 points without at least one field goal attempt. Zuerlein is still a set and forget option going forward.

The Seattle Seahawks D/ST allowed 30 points on 424 yards with one fumble recovery and no sacks in their loss to the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact: In their worst outing since Week 3 against the Titans, Seattle recorded their second outing resulting in negative fantasy points of the season. Unfortunately things don't get easier for Seattle, who play the Rams in Week 15 followed by the Cowboys with a returning Ezekiel Elliott in Week 16.

San Francisco 49ers D/ST came away with three sacks on seven quarterback hits and a fumble recovery in Sunday's 26-16 victory over the Texans.

Fantasy Impact: The 49ers D/ST gave up 311 and only 16 points, but only forced one turnover and three sacks. They are not considered a viable streaming D/ST unless you are desperate next week against a struggling Tennessee offense.

Thomas Rawls didn't have a carry or a passing target against the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact: Rawls hasn't been fantasy relevant in several weeks and is safe to drop in all redraft leagues.

Eric Ebron caught 10-of-11 targets in Week 14, good for a season-high 94 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Ebron finally had a break out with a 10-reception game, logging season-highs in receptions, targets, and yards. If you're in the playoffs, it's an incredibly risky play to expect Ebron to have another similar performance next week against the Bears. He's a slightly better punt play in DFS given his low salary.

Matthew Stafford completed 36-of-44 pass attempts for 381 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions.

Fantasy Impact: Stafford was listed on the injury report all week with a hand injury, but looked just fine as he diced up the Buccaneers for nearly 400 yards. He had two bad passes that got picked off, but otherwise he had an incredibly efficient performance. Stafford will be a borderline QB1 in Week 15 as he faces a tough Bears defense.

Carlos Hyde led the backfield with 14 carries for 78 yards and a touchdown and also failed to catch his only target in Sunday's victory over Houston.

Fantasy Impact: Hyde has seen his involvement in the passing game all but disappear since Jimmy Garoppolo took control of the offense, but he is still the clear leader of the backfield. His lack of usage in the passing game will limit his value however, making him a low end RB2. Especially with tough match-ups to close out the season against the Titans, the Jaguars and the Rams. Hyde will need to keep scoring touchdowns, which is something he has struggled with this year or see more involvement in the passing game to get back up into the high end RB2 range.

J.D. McKissic ran the ball three times for 15 yards with five receptions on as many targets for 20 yards in the Seahawks loss to the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact: While McKissic still lacks ideal volume, he appears to have surpassed Eddie Lacy on the depth chart in addition to having a big role in the passing game. McKissic's ceiling keeps him a PPR option, but he lacks the volume to be started in Standard formats.

Buffalo Bills K Steven Hauschka saw his opportunities limited by severe winter weather conditions in his team's week 14 victory over the visiting Indianapolis Colts. Both offenses struggled to move the ball, and the Bills elected to keep their offense on the field on two fourth down plays in Colts territory in circumstances where they might normally have brought in the kicking unit. Hauschka was able to convert a PAT after the Bills only regulation TD late in the first half.

Fantasy Impact: Any kick made in this game is worthy of adulation, given the conditions. Hauschka remains a middle of the pack fantasy kicker, with his potential being muted by his team's general inefficiency on offense.

With Zach Ertz out on Sunday, Trey Burton stepped up and hauled in five passes for 71 yards and two touchdowns. Burton has 20 receptions for 224 yards this season.

Fantasy Impact: Burton has four touchdowns this season, averaging one touchdown for every five receptions. With Ertz likely back next week, that will severely limit Burton's targets.

Buffalo Bills WR Deonte Thompson, who was not targeted at all for the entirety of a snowy, sloppy regulation period, came up with a huge play to help seal an overtime victory over the visiting Indianapolis Colts in week 14. Thompson hauled in his only target for a 34 yard gain in the extra period, the longest pass completion of the day for either team, which led to teammate LeSean McCoy's 21 yard game clinching touchdown run three plays later.

Fantasy Impact: On a day when passing yards were hard to come by, Thompson's big play was thrilling. That said, He remains too inconsistent on too unstable a passing offense to be considered for your fantasy lineups.

Mike Davis ran the ball 15 times for 66 yards with one reception on two targets for negative one yard in the Seahawks' loss to the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact: Despite the Seahawks being in comeback mode for a big chunk of the game, Davis still carried the ball 15 times. Expect Davis to remain the focal point on the ground for the Seahawks against the Rams.

Brent Celek caught just one pass on Sunday for five yards, but it went for a touchdown. It was the first touchdown of the season for Celek, who has nine catches for 105 yards this season.

Fantasy Impact: With Zach Ertz likely back in the lineup next week, Celek will likely not be targeted and go back to his role as a blocking tight end.
