    • Eddie Royal shines with Keenan Allen out
      Eddie Royal caught 10-of-12 targets for 94 yards and a touchdown Week 16 against the 49ers.

      Advice: Royal inherited a lot of the targets normally earmarked for Keenan Allen, working primarily in the short and intermediate areas of the field. His touchdown catch was a beautifully lofted ball by Philip Rivers in the second quarter. With Allen likely done for the season, Royal could return WR3 value in PPR formats against the Chiefs next week. Rotoworld.com

    • Donald Brown plays second fiddle to Oliver
      Donald Brown rushed four times for 12 yards Week 16 against the 49ers.

      Advice: Brown was the clear second option to Branden Oliver, and even lost some pass-game work to Ronnie Brown late in the game. Brown is not a viable fantasy option even if Ryan Mathews (ankle) cannot play Week 17 against the Chiefs. Rotoworld.com

    • Branden Oliver dominates the early work
      Branden Oliver rushed 13 times for 53 yards and caught three passes for 28 yards Week 16 against the 49ers.

      Advice: Oliver dominated the early work for San Diego, out snapping the rest of the Chargers' running backs 20-to-8 in the first half. Oliver ceded work to Ronnie Brown in the second half with the Chargers in full comeback mode, but he still comfortably led the Chargers' backfield in touches. Oliver would be an intriguing play Week 17 against the Chiefs if Ryan Mathews (ankle) is unable to play. Rotoworld.com

    • Philip Rivers leads comeback win on Saturday
      Philip Rivers completed 33-of-54 passes for 356 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions Week 16 against the 49ers.

      Advice: It was a tale of two halfs for Rivers. He started the game painfully slow, throwing two horrific interceptions and appearing to struggle with the various injuries that have hampered him the last several week. Rivers turned it on after the break, though, erasing a 21-point halftime deficit with three second-half touchdown passes. The performance was Rivers' best in months, but it is unlikely to repeat itself Week 17 against Kansas City. He will be no more than a QB2 for the season finale. Rotoworld.com

    • Vernon Davis held without a target
      Vernon Davis did not receive a target Week 16 against the Chargers.

      Advice: The goose egg is misleading, as Davis had a 63-yard touchdown catch negated by penalty in the third quarter. Davis caught a bullet from Kaepernick down the seam and bullied his way into the end zone, but the play was called back by a chop block. Even though it did not count, the long catch showed Davis still has the playmaking ability that made him a fantasy star. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: With Michael Crabtree sidelined most of the game, Boldin was the clear No. 1 option in the passing game, garnering nine of the 49ers' 24 targets. Boldin did not make much happen with the looks, but did have a touchdown catch called back because of a holding call in the second quarter. With Crabtree's playing status unknown, Boldin will set up as a WR3 in the 49ers' season finale against the Cardinals. Rotoworld.com

    • Kaepernick racks up 151 rushing yards in loss
      Colin Kaepernick rushed seven times for 151 yards and a touchdown Week 16 against the Chargers, adding 114 yards and a score through the air.

      Advice: With the 49ers dominating on the ground, Kaepernick was only asked to throw 24 times in a game San Francisco led 28-7 at halftime. Kaepernick's best play of the night was a 90-yard touchdown scramble in the third quarter. Kaepernick escaped pressure, put a move on Chargers S Eric Weddle and turned on the jets for the long score that appeared to put a stop to San Diego's comeback bid. It was all for nought, however, as two Philip Rivers' fourth-quarter touchdown passes and a Quinton Patton overtime fumble sealed the 49ers' fate. Despite the loss, Kaepernick appeared more willing to run for the second week in a row, and clearly showed the athleticism that made him feared still exists. He is not a good real-life quarterback, but Kaepernick can be a quality fantasy option as long as he continues to run. Rotoworld.com

    • Gore turns back the clock on Saturday night
      Frank Gore rushed 26 times for 158 yards and a touchdown Week 16 against the Chargers.

      Advice: The highlight of the evening was a first-quarter run in which Gore rumbled through several Chargers on his way to a 52-yard touchdown. Gore racked up 129 yards before halftime and looked unstoppable early in the game. He slowed down in the second half, but Gore still had enough juice to post his highest single-game rushing total since 2009. Gore will likely struggle Week 17 against the Cardinals' stout rush defense, but he showed on Saturday he still has plenty left in the tank. Rotoworld.com

      ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells believes "it would be surprising" if T.Y. Hilton (questionable, hamstring) played Sunday at Dallas.

      Advice: The Colts have already locked up the AFC South. From a postseason standpoint, the only reason they'd want to ensure a win in Sunday's game would be to avoid the No. 4 seed, which could end up as trip to New England in the Divisional Round. If the Colts are going to do anything in the playoffs, however, they need Hilton's hamstring healthy first and foremost.

"I'm going to go talk to Coach. Did some field work. I feel all right. So I'm going to go talk to him and see what's up." Hilton is officially a game-time decision, but we're still guessing he won't play. "If our conversation goes well and (Pagano) wants me to play, then I'll play," T.Y. added. "If not, I'll sit out."

      Redskins coach Jay Gruden's Tuesday comments about Robert Griffin III come across much softer in context.

      Advice: "(It's) important for us to try to have some success on first and second down so we don’t have to drop back and throw it 30 times a game," Gruden said. "(When) you get behind, you get in third down, you get behind the chains, those have to be accomplished — the drop-back reads and progressions have to be accomplished, and that’s something we’re fighting through right now." Gruden's comments are non-controversial when taken in their full form, but came across as inflammatory in a series of tweets from the conference call. It took hours for the comments to be presented in their proper context. Regardless of today's brouhaha, Gruden is clearly not RGIII's No. 1 fan. It's hard to see the two coexisting for 2015.

      Speaking Tuesday, coach Jay Gruden said it's important for the Redskins to get an early lead in Saturday's game against the Eagles so they can limit Robert Griffin III's dropbacks and reading of the defense.

      Advice: Gruden might as well have just come out and said he thinks RGIII stinks. Gruden also said Griffin needs to "get up quicker," and "avoid awkward hits and falls." He wants RGIII to be "more savvy." Gruden hates the way RGIII plays quarterback, and he's making sure he gets it on the public record before the offseason. Grudes has supposedly been told he'll be back for 2015, so it's seeming safer and safer to assume Griffin is a goner in Washington. Rotoworld.com

      T.Y. Hilton tweaked his hamstring during Sunday's win over the Texans.

      Advice: We didn't notice it during the game and Hilton appeared to finish without missing any time. But he was very quiet after a three-catch first quarter, perhaps limited by this hamstring tweak. When asked if he will be OK afterward, Hilton said, "I hope so. I'll know more after I go get an MRI and talk with the doctors." The Colts have a tasty matchup at Dallas in Week 16. If Hilton rests, Donte Moncrief would get a big boost in both snaps and target volume. Rotoworld.com

    • Eddie Royal quiet outside of punt return
      Eddie Royal caught three passes for 27 yards in Sunday's Week 15 loss to the Broncos.

      Advice: Even with Keenan Allen (ankle) sidelined for the majority of the game, Royal saw just four targets and had little chance to get loose anyway. His biggest impact came on a 58-yard punt return that saw him get tripped up by the punter at the last second. Royal would be a weak WR4 at San Fran next week even if Keenan sits. Rotoworld.com

    • Vernon Davis held without a catch in Week 15
      Vernon Davis was held without a catch on two targets in San Francisco's Week 15 loss to the Seahawks.

      Advice: Davis' disappearance continues unabated. He'll now head into Week 16 the owner of a hard-to-believe 25/236/2 line as a pass catcher. Rotoworld.com

    • Anquan Boldin held to two catches in Seattle
      Anquan Boldin caught 2-of-4 targets for 23 yards in the 49ers' Week 15 loss to the Seahawks.

      Advice: As feared, Boldin and the 49ers' passing "attack" was swallowed up by the Legion of Boom. Boldin could have had a third catch, but Colin Kaepernick rocketed the ball over his head. There was nobody within 10 yards of San Francisco's No. 1 receiver. Boldin will be back on the WR3 against the Chargers in Week 16. Rotoworld.com

    • Donald Brown plays behind Oliver in loss
      Donald Brown rushed five times for 18 yards and caught four passes for 38 yards in Sunday's Week 15 loss to the Broncos.

      Advice: With Ryan Mathews (ankle) inactive, Brown was the change-of-pace and third-down back behind Branden Oliver. He also handled most of the two- and four-minute drill work. It's not enough volume for Brown to even be on the flex radar for a Week 16 game at San Fran. Rotoworld.com

    • Branden Oliver operates as lead back
      Branden Oliver rushed 12 times for 26 yards and caught four passes for 44 yards in Sunday's Week 15 loss to the Broncos.

      Advice: With Ryan Mathews (ankle) sidelined, Oliver drew the start and operated as the feature back. However, there was nowhere to run against a stout Broncos defense and Donald Brown/Ronnie Brown combined to steal 11 touches. Even if Mathews can't get back in Week 16, Oliver will only be a flex play at San Francisco. Rotoworld.com

    • Kaepernick held without a score in Seattle
      Colin Kaepernick completed 11-of-19 passes for 141 yards in the 49ers' 17-7, Week 15 loss to the Seahawks, adding nine rushes for 46 yards.

      Advice: It was another cringe-worthy performance from Kaep, who avoided turnovers, but took six sacks. Not all of them were Kaep's fault, but he continues to have a poor feel for the rush. As usual, Kaep had trouble managing the clock, burning timeouts in the first half and moving the Niners up the field at a leisurely pace with San Francisco down 10 points midway through the fourth quarter. Kaepernick's raw tools remain amongst the most intriguing in the game, but he's not progressing at a fast-enough rate as a signal caller. He won't be on the QB2 radar against the Chargers next Saturday. Rotoworld.com

    • Philip Rivers throws two picks in loss
      Philip Rivers completed 24-of-41 passes for 232 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in Sunday's Week 15 loss to the Broncos.

      Advice: Although Rivers somehow didn't get sacked, he was under heavy pressure all day and things got even worse when Keenan Allen went down with an ankle injury. It's yet another reminder of how good this Broncos defense can be with Aqib Talib and Chris Harris at corner. Rivers' season has gone in the tank since a red hot first month and a half. He's on the fantasy QB1 fringe. Rotoworld.com

    • Joique totals 103 yards in Week 15 win
      Joique Bell rushed 15 times for 62 yards and caught four balls for 41 yards in the Lions' Week 15 win over the Vikings.

      Advice: Joique (pronounced "Joyk") was an all-purpose machine in this one, racking up big gains in the passing game and a number of chain-moving rushes, particularly in the fourth quarter. He has clearly asserted himself as the Lions' feature back with Reggie Bush continuing to struggle with health and Theo Riddick just a reserve/role player. Expect Bell to stay hot in a Week 16 date with the Bears' leaky defense. He shredded Chicago on Thanksgiving. Joique will be an RB2 in fantasy title week. Rotoworld.com

    • Frank Gore done for Week 15 with concussion
      Frank Gore was forced from the 49ers' Week 16 game against the Seahawks with a concussion.

      Advice: Gore went down throwing a vicious block late in the first half. He attempted to stagger off the field under his own power, but collapsed in a heap before making it to the sideline. Concerned players from both teams huddled around him before he was helped off the field. Gore was running reasonably well before going down, taking the rock 11 times for 29 yards and a touchdown. His score was a pinballing number from 10 yards out. Carlos Hyde will carry the mail in the second half. Rotoworld.com

      Jordan Reed had three catches for 13 yards in Sunday's Week 15 loss to the Giants.

      Advice: He was targeted four times. Reed lost snaps to Niles Paul and Logan Paulsen in base sets. He continues to be limited by Jay Gruden's offense. Reed will be a boom-or-bust TE1 in Week 16 against the Eagles. Rotoworld.com

    • RG3 replaces McCoy, throws for 236 yards, TD
      Robert Griffin III completed 18-of-27 passes for 236 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 15 loss to the Giants.

      Advice: Griffin replaced Colt McCoy on Washington's second drive. He completed his first six passes and threw a touchdown to Chris Thompson. Griffin also added five carries for 46 yards and had a rushing score overturned. His best throw was a 61-yard pass to Andre Roberts in the third quarter. The Redskins lost LT Trent Williams to injury and allowed seven sacks. Even if McCoy is cleared to return next week, Griffin played well enough that he should start the final two games. Rotoworld.com

    • 49ers may unleash Kaepernick in Week 15
      ESPN 49ers reporter Paul Gutierrez says there's a sense around the team that San Francisco's best chance of beating the Seahawks in Week 15 is by "unleashing Colin Kaepernick's running game."

      Advice: Stop us if you've heard this before. We can't even count how many times there's been speculation of "unleashing" Kaepernick. To date, it hasn't happened. And we have no reason to believe it will on Sunday. But the 49ers are desperate for wins with their playoff hopes on life support and may pull out all the stops. Kaepernick managed 130 yards rushing against Seattle in last year's NFC Championship game. For Week 15, he's not a suggested streaming option. Rotoworld.com

    • Gruden: I don't need to see any more of RGIII
      Speaking Thursday, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he doesn't need to see any more of Robert Griffin III in action to know what he can and cannot do on a football field.

      Advice: It essentially means Gruden has zero faith in RGIII's ability to get better. It's a damning indictment considering Gruden is currently going with pop-gun armed, journeyman Colt McCoy under center. RGIII has been horrendous in limited action this season, and Grudes apparently believes that's just who he is as a quarterback. RGIII badly needs a second chance with a different team. His affinity for drama makes him a poor fit on the circus-like Redskins. It's quite possible Griffin simply isn't the same since tearing up his knee in January 2013, but it's too early to throw in the towel. Rotoworld.com
