 Titans CB Adoree' Jackson (foot) has been ruled out for Week 15 against the Texans. Jackson's absence is good news for DeAndre Hopkins and company. The Titans' CB group is in an awful state at the moment.
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
 Hopkins has only scored twice this season, but his fantasy owners realize that he's still a model of consistency. Start him in what could turn into a high-scoring game with the Titans.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
With the Panthers often playing from behind, it has been easier for defenses to focus on and slow CMC down. That being said, his floor is still much higher than many players' ceilings, so he is a locked in RB1 week in and week out. The matchup against Seattle also shouldn't scare you. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After scoring at least one touchdown in 9-of-10 games to start the season, McCaffrey has now scored in just one of the last four games, though he's kept his fantasy totals afloat while racking up the yardage. The hope for a 1,000/1,000 season still has hope, as he now needs to average 91.3 receiving yards over the final three games. While unlikely, it's neat to think it's possible. It certainly doesn't hurt that the Seahawks have allowed 7.30 yards per target to running backs, which ranks as the seventh-most in the league. The concern has come up that the Panthers may rest McCaffrey down the stretch with nothing to play for, but after seeing him play 70-of-71 snaps last week, you shouldn't be concerned. The Seahawks have played against seven running backs who've seen 18-plus touches. Each of them totaled at least 16.2 PPR points, while five of them broke the 20-point barrier. Based on overall opportunity, the Seahawks have allowed 0.94 PPR points per opportunity, which ranks sixth behind only the Panthers, Jaguars, Texans, Lions, and Chiefs. You'd play him in DFS cash games every chance you got against those defenses, so why not against the Seahawks this week?As expected, Hopkins saw a massive target share with Fuller out of the lineup. He turned 13 targets into 7/120/1 in a tough matchup with the Broncos. When Fuller is out, you can almost lock Hopkins in for 10-plus targets. We likely won't know the status of Fuller until later in the week, but this is a matchup that's attractive, regardless. The Titans secondary may be without three of their top four cornerbacks for this game, as Malcolm Butler is on injured reserve, Adoree Jackson is dealing with a foot injury, while LeShaun Sims is dealing with an ankle injury. Hopkins played against this secondary twice last year (while healthy) and caught 11-of-17 targets for 184 yards and a touchdown, so it was far from a tough matchup. We could see Hopkins matched-up with former fifth-round pick Tye Smith this week, a cornerback who's seen just 32 targets over the course of his five-year career. On them, he's allowed 18 receptions for 220 yards and two touchdowns. Hopkins is an elite WR1 play and becomes a DFS cash game must if Fuller remains out.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Seahawks are 16th against fantasy running backs, but McCaffrey is an elite fantasy running back against any matchup.The Titans are just 17th against fantasy wide receivers, their secondary does not have an answer for Hopkins in the passing game.
