Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller's status remains in question for Week 15's contest against the Tennessee Titans. (Source: Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Head coach Bill O'Brien revealed that the Houston Texans held Will Fuller out of Week 14's contest against the Denver Broncos because it was in the player's best interests. This sounds like coach speak for the fact that the Texans thought they had an easy win against the Broncos, and decided to give their oft injured receiver a rest. Fuller was able to get in limited practice's all week before being ruled out,, so he has a strong chance to play this weekend with the contest against the Tennessee Titans being of the must win variety. Deshaun Watson gets an instant upgrade if Fuller is active. The hamstring injury is likely to linger and can easily be aggravated, making this a situation to monitor throughout the week.

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery is questionable to return to Monday night's contest against the New York Giants with a foot injury. (Source: Around the NFL on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Eagles started just three receivers on Monday night and appear to have lost Jeffery for the game. He is officially questionable to return, but the injury did not look like something that can be dealt with satisfactorily over half time. Rookie J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and practice squader Greg Ward are the Eagles lone remaining healthy wideouts.

Dalvin Cook came out of Week 14's contest against the Detroit Lions healthy, and is expected to be good to go for this weekend's contest against the Los Angeles Chargers. (Source: StarTribune.com)

Fantasy Impact: Dalvin Cook will once again be a fourth quarter rest candidate if this weekend's contest against the Los Angeles Chargers turns into a blowout. Cook sat on the sidelines while Alexander Mattison went to work in clock killing mode in the fourth quarter of Week 14's contest against the Detroit Lions, and saw a career high in carries as a result. Cook remains an RB1 for Week 15, but has a much lower floor than usual with the Vikings appearing perfectly willing to keep him rested if the contest appears to be in hand. Mattison makes for an intriguing deep league flex3 due to the potential for an expanded workload.

New York Giants rookie quarterback Daniel Jones is expected to miss the next two to four weeks with his high ankle sprain. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: It appears that the Eli Manning farewell tour could extend throughout the rest of the regular season. Daniel Jones is expected to miss the next two to four weeks with the ankle injury, and could very well be sent to IR before the week is over. Manning will have a sneaky plus matchup on tap in Week 15 against the Miami Dolphins. While playing him in single-QB leagues will take some bravery, he is a high upside option in superflex leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers star quarterback Jameis Winston has a fractured thumb, but is expected to be able to play through it in Week 15 against the Detroit Lions. (Source: Jenna Laine on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jameis saw a hand specialist on Monday, and after the visit the team remains optimistic about his prospects of closing out the season. The tests revealed that there is no risk of further damage by playing through the injury, so the team will likely continue to evaluate Jameis ahead of a major offseason decision on where they stand on the quarterbacks future. Jameis will likely be without Mike Evans, and will be playing with a fractured thumb. If possible, this might be a week to look elsewhere.

New York Jets tight end Ryan Griffin was listed as did not practice on the team's estimated practice report. (Source: NYDailyNews.com)

Fantasy Impact: With the Jets playing on Thursday night, the team was required to submit an official practice report ahead of tomorrow's actual practice. Griffin left Sunday's game with the injury, and will have just two more days to heal before Thursday night's contest against the Ravens. Missing Griffin would represent a major downgrade for Sam Darnold.

New York Jets superstar safety Jamal Adams' status is uncertain for Thursday night's contest against the Baltimore Ravens. (Source: NYDailyNews.com)

Fantasy Impact: IDP owners should be preparing for another week without their DB1/S1. Getting cleared on the short week was always going to be difficult for a player who was doubtful for Week 14. Adams may end up a shutdown candidate, and is no lock to return in Week 16's fantasy football finals. Adams absence would represent a huge upgrade for the Ravens passing attack.

New York Jets star running back Le'Veon Bell is expected to play in Week 15 against the Baltimore Ravens. (Source: Manish Mehta on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Bell returning is an upgrade for the entire Jets offense. He has struggled on the ground this year, but beating the Ravens without Bell would have been more improbable than it already is. Bell actually missed Sunday's contest against the Miami Dolphins with the flu, and is one of the rare players to actually miss game action with an illness. Bell will be an upside RB2 for Week 15 due to the Ravens vulnerability on the ground.

Jacksonville Jaguars star receiver D.J. Chark is considered day to day with an ankle injury. His status for this weekend's contest against the Oakland Raiders is uncertain. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: Still being in the walking boot a day later suggests that this injury may be more serious than many had hoped. With the Jaguars having nothing to play for, they may decide to play it safe with their star receiver against the Oakland Raiders. They could use this time to evaluate the rest of their receiver corps down the stretch, as they will likely to look to make a major overhaul in the offseason. Chris Conley and DeDe Westbrook will both receive fantasy boosts if Chark is unable to go this weekend. Keelan Cole should be considered in only the deepest of leagues if he is ruled out.

Kansas City Chiefs superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes is expected to play in Week 15 despite suffering an injury to his throwing hand. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: Head coach Andy Reid stated that testing on Mahomes' injured throwing hand did not reveal a break. The team is optimistic that the superstar signal caller will be able to play through the injury against the Denver Broncos this weekend. This will be a situation to monitor starting on Wednesday when team's playing Sunday take the practice field for the first time.

Baltimore Ravens star tight end Mark Andrews was listed as did not practice on the team's estimated practice report for Monday. (Source: Jamison Hensley on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Andrews seems to have avoided a major injury with Ian Rapoport calling the injury minor earlier in the day. Being listed as DNP for what was essentially a walk through is still reason for concern however. Andrews played just nine snaps on Sunday and did not return to what was a highly competitive contest against the Buffalo Bills. Luckily, the Ravens have incredible tight end depth with Hayden Hurst and Nick Boyle behind Andrews, but the latter has been Jackson's number one target this season. This will be an important situation to monitor ahead of Thursday night's game against the New York Jets.

Baltimore Ravens superstar quarterback Lamar Jackson suffered a quad injury against the Bills in Week 14, and is day to day ahead of Thursday Night Football against the New York Jets. (Source: Jamison Hensley on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jackson has been spotted walking with a slight hitch, and according to head coach John Harbaugh is legitimately day to day due to the Ravens playing on a short week. The expectation is that Lamar will play through the injury, but quad injuries can be tricky, and the Ravens have the postseason to take into consideration. Jackson was listed as a limited participant on the team's estimated practice report for Monday. This will be a tremendously important situation to monitor over the next two days.

Eagles defensive end Derek Barnett is officially inactive for the team's matchup against the New York Giants on Monday Night Football due to an ankle injury. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: Barnett has 4 1/2 sacks and two forced fumbles through 12 games this season while starting for the Eagles, and their struggling secondary will surely miss having a pass-rushing like Barnett in the lineup. Josh Sweat, Vinny Curry, and Genard Avery could see additional snaps in Barnett's absence.

Eagles running back Jordan Howard is officially inactive for the team's matchup against the Giants on Monday Night Football due to a shoulder injury that has sidelined him since Week 9 against the Chicago Bears. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: Howard will now miss four straight games coming out of a bye week and has yet to be cleared for contact. Head coach Doug Pederson insists that Howard's injury is not a season-ending one, but he has now gone more than a month without being cleared for contact.

Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor is officially inactive for the team's matchup against the New York Giants on Monday Night Football due to a knee injury. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: Agholor played last week against the Dolphins but had missed the team's previous game with a knee injury. With Agholor out, Greg Ward should see additional time in the slot for the Eagles, while Alshon Jeffery and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside will be the only other two active wide receivers on Monday night.

The Carolina Panthers D/ST allowed 40 points and recorded just one sack, with zero turnovers in Week 14 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: The Panthers D/ST has been strong for the majority of the season, but got hammered by the Atlanta Falcons in Week 14. 40 points allowed with just one sack, puts them on the board as one of the worst fantasy defenses of the week. With Seattle coming up in Week 15, fantasy owners should look elsewhere.

Category: Game Recaps


The Atlanta Falcons D/ST recorded five sacks, two interceptions, and two fumble recoveries against the Carolina Panthers in Week 14.

Fantasy Impact: The Falcons D/ST had a stellar week against Kyle Allen and the Carolina Panthers. Five sacks and four turnovers with just 20 points allowed puts them squarely in the mix as one of the top fantasy defenses of Week 14. Their defensive unit has been very hit or miss this season, and should be avoided for Week 15's contest against the San Francisco 49ers.

Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny is out for the remainder of the season after an MRI today revealed a torn ACL, according to a report from NFL insider Ian Rapoport. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It was originally hoped that Penny merely had a sprain, but today's MRI showed otherwise. He had scored three touchdowns in his last two games heading into last Sunday but is now expected to be out until training camp. Chris Carson will continue to be the lead back in Seattle, while C.J. Prosise could see an increased role with Penny out.

Zay Jones had one reception for five yards on three targets in the Raiders' 42-21 loss to the Titans Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Jones is a non-factor for fantasy and should be avoided.

Category: Game Recaps


Foster Moreau had three receptions for 14 yards and one touchdown in the Raiders' 42-21 loss to the Titans Sunday. He left the game with a knee injury that is possibly season-ending.

Fantasy Impact: Moreau scored his fifth touchdown of the year before injuring his knee. He is not in fantasy consideration even if he can suit up against Minnesota next week.
