    • Kam Wimbley manages career-low 2 sacks
      Titans OLB Kamerion Wimbley managed a career-low two sacks in 2014.

      Advice: The Titans hoped that their conversion to a 3-4 defense would spark Wimbley at outside linebacker. He flopped instead, grading out poorly as both a run defender and pass rusher per Pro Football Focus. Wimbley is due nearly $3 million in 2015 and is 31 years old. His future in Nashville seems bleak. Rotoworld.com

    • Dolphins make Walt Aikens a healthy scratch
      The Dolphins made DB Walt Aikens a healthy scratch in Week 17 for a violation of team rules.

      Advice: Aikens was expected to be a core contributor in Sunday's loss to the Jets. Instead, he didn't play at all. Primarily a special teamer, Aikens did earn defensive snaps down the stretch of his rookie season. There are no indications that Aiken's rules violation is a concern for his long-term outlook in Miami. Rotoworld.com

Fletcher, who is headed for free agency, has been among the worst corners in the league all year and a weekly target for savvy fantasy football owners. The bigger question is how bad replacement Nolan Carroll must be in practice if he's not replacing Fletcher until Week 17. Don't downgrade ODB at all. The rest of the Eagles inactives: QB Nick Foles, S Jerome Couplin, OL Julian Vandervelde, OL Dennis Kelly, WR Jeff Maehl and DE Taylor Hart. Rotoworld.com

      Browns first-round CB Justin Gilbert has been declared inactive for Week 17 against the Ravens after being late to a meeting on Saturday.

      Advice: The fallout from Johnny Manziel's party continues. The No. 8 overall pick in May's draft, Gilbert has been a supreme disappointment in his first season in the NFL. He played behind fourth-round CB Pierre Desir in Week 16, and has had his maturity and ability to pick up NFL defenses openly questioned in the media by his teammates. He will be back with Cleveland in 2015, but Gilbert has the early makings of a first-round bust. Rotoworld.com

      ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi believes the Browns are considering making a run at impending free agent DT Ndamukong Suh.

      Advice: The Browns could be targeting Suh to upgrade their league-worst run defense. Current DTs Ahtyba Rubin and Ishmaa'ily Kitchen have both struggled and are in contract years. Suh has been a three-technique his entire career and is a questionable fit for Mike Pettine's 3-4 scheme. Cleveland has a projected $19 million in 2015 cap space and could be willing to give Suh a deal in excess of J.J. Watt's eight-year, $109 million extension. Rotoworld.com
