    • Titans a Cutler trade partner for Bears?
      NFL Network's Ian Rapoport passes along the Titans as a potential trade partner for Jay Cutler.

      Advice: It seems like RapSheet is spitballing here -- he didn't cite any sources -- but the Titans are quarterback needy, and Cutler played college ball at nearby Vanderbilt. Attempting to develop Zach Mettenberger remains high on coach Ken Whisenhunt's priority list. That said, Cutler shouldn't cost more than a mid- to late-round draft pick based on the overwhelming salary he is due. Rotoworld.com

    • Report: RGIII will be back with Skins in 2015
      The Washington Post's Jason Reid writes Robert Griffin III is "expected to return" to the Redskins in 2015.

      Advice: Profootballtalk reports RGIII's job status for 2015 was never in danger despite all of the reports stating otherwise in recent weeks. RGIII looked like his vintage self in a Saturday afternoon win over the Eagles, and suddenly things are peachy in D.C. RGIII has an opportunity to finish the season on a high note against the Cowboys in Week 17. Whether Jay Gruden returns as head coach remains unclear, but he's reportedly been told he'll be back.

    • 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 weeks. 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

    • 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 once 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

    • Sanchez's late interception dooms Eagles
      Mark Sanchez completed 37-of-50 passes for 374 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in Saturday's Week 16 loss to the Redskins.

      Advice: Sanchez also fumbled on the opening series and took three sacks. Despite the stat line, Sanchez checked down to Zach Ertz and Riley Cooper for most of the game, targeting them 25 times. Sanchez's late fourth-quarter interception set up a game-winning field for Washington and all but ends the Eagles postseason chances. The Eagles now need a Dallas loss to stay alive in the playoffs.

    • Cam Newton cleared for Week 16
      Cam Newton (probable, back) will start Week 16 against the Browns.

      Advice: He was officially cleared by the Panthers on Saturday. Newton's role in the run game will be limited, but he has QB1 upside despite a tough matchup. Rotoworld.com

      Peyton Manning (thigh) is listed a questionable for Monday night's matchup with the Bengals.

    • Stanton might back up Lindley vs. Seahawks
      Cardinals coach Bruce Arians suggested Friday that Drew Stanton (knee, doubtful) could be active for Sunday's game versus Seattle to serve as Ryan Lindley's backup.

      Advice: Arians confirmed Lindley will start. Stanton is dealing with ACL and MCL sprains in his knee, but the Cardinals obviously have very little confidence in rookie Logan Thomas. We still don't see any scenario where Stanton plays. Rotoworld.com

    • Ryan Lindley will be Seahawks Week 16 starter
      Despite Drew Stanton's (knee) "limited" return to practice, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians confirmed Friday that Ryan Lindley will start at quarterback in Week 16 against the Seahawks.

      Advice: Lindley has been beyond horrendous any time he's taken the field in his three-year career. Seattle's fantasy defense should be fired up with excitement. Rotoworld.com

    • Report: Texans leaning toward starting Keenum
      NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Texans are leaning toward starting Case Keenum at quarterback for Week 16 against the Ravens.

      Advice: As expected. Keenum simply knows the offense better as a whole than Thad Lewis. Keenum spent the summer with the Texans, while Lewis was signed just a few weeks ago. Neither Keenum nor Lewis would be on the fantasy radar. The Ravens may have a suspect secondary, but they have a dominant pass rush. Rotoworld.com

    • Clipboard Jesus throws for 287 yards in loss
      Charlie Whitehurst completed 24-of-35 passes for 287 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' 21-13, Week 16 loss to the Jaguars.

      Advice: Clipboard Jesus came out dropping dimes, going 6-of-6 for 71 yards and a touchdown on the Titans' opening drive. He cooled off considerably thereafter, but still delivered a surprising amount of precision passes into tight spaces. He was hurt by a lack of awareness from both Delanie Walker and Derek Hagan on incompletions that should have gone for big yards. Whitehurst has actually performed reasonably well in spot duty this season, but done nothing to disprove the notion that he's a career backup. He won't be on the fantasy radar for next week's finale against the Colts. Rotoworld.com

    • Bortles, Jags outlast Titans in TNF finale
      Blake Bortles completed 13-of-26 passes for 115 yards and a touchdown in the Jaguars' 21-13, Week 16 win over the Titans, adding five rushes for 50 yards.

      Advice: Bortles' sprained foot was not an issue. In the merciful end to an unimpressive slate of Thursday night games, Tennessee and Jacksonville put on a reasonably good show. Bortles got off to a painfully slow start, completing just four passes for 10 yards through the Jags' first four drives. He never exactly got in a groove, but finally started driving the ball and sustaining drives. He took "just" four sacks four days after getting walloped for eight by the Ravens. Bortles committed a fumble, but the Jags recovered. Bortles hasn't put a lot of positive things on tape, but has had abysmal protection and a revolving door at running back, receiver and tight end. The jury remains out. Rotoworld.com

    • Derek Carr upgraded to 'full' on Thursday
      Derek Carr (thumb, ankle) was upgraded to "full" on Thursday.

      Advice: Carr's health is not a concern, but his play remains one. Carr is a bottom-five option for the fantasy finals. Rotoworld.com

    • O'Brien won't announce starter yet
      Bill O'Brien is declining to announce his Week 16 starter at quarterback.

      Advice: It will either be Case Keenum or Thad Lewis. "I'm going to keep that one close to the vest," O'Brien said Wednesday. "Both these guys, Case and Thad, are out there working hard. Right up until game time, that's going to be the way it is." It sounds like he's going to try to keep the Ravens in the dark until Sunday morning. All Texans are hands off in fantasy Super Bowls.

    • Jimmy Clausen to start in Week 16
      Jimmy Clausen will start in Week 16 against the Lions.

      Advice: The Bears benched Jay Cutler, leaving Clausen to make his first start since 2010. Per NFL Network's Mike Silver, Bears players believe Clausen will "light it up" in Marc Trestman's quarterback-friendly scheme "simply because he'll run the offense as prescribed." Clausen has potential for plug-and-play value in the Bears' pass-based attack, but gets a difficult first matchup against the Lions. He'll be no more than a QB2 option and daily-league dart throw in Week 16. Rotoworld.com

    • Jaguars add two to 53-man roster
      Jaguars signed QB Stephen Morris off their practice squad.

      Advice: S Matt Daniels was also promoted to the 53-man roster, with Denard Robinson (foot) and LB Khairi Fortt (hamstring) heading to I.R. Morris (6-foot-2, 213) is a big-armed rookie out of Miami who played for Jaguars OC Jedd Fisch in college. He's insurance in case Blake Bortles (foot) can't play Thursday. Rotoworld.com

    • Texans add QB Ricky Stanzi to p-squad
      Texans signed QB Ricky Stanzi to their practice squad.

      Advice: Somehow, the 27-year-old former fifth-round pick keeps finding work despite never having thrown a regular-season pass. He spent the summer with the Jaguars, completing 17-of-28 preseason tosses for 159 yards, zero touchdowns, and two interceptions. Stanzi is essentially Houston's No. 3 quarterback. Rotoworld.com

    • Ryan Fitzpatrick officially stashed on I.R.
      Texans placed QB Ryan Fitzpatrick on injured reserve with a broken leg, ending his season.

      Advice: Fitzpatrick's break required surgery. Now 32, Fitzpatrick is signed with the Texans through 2015. He should be back, though coach Bill O'Brien clearly isn't that big of fan after benching Fitzpatrick halfway through the season. Fitzpatrick is a classic bridge quarterback. He's good enough for teams to win games with, but will rarely win the games himself. Rotoworld.com

    • Report: Foles still not close to 100 percent
      FOX Philadelphia's Howard Eskin reports Nick Foles' collarbone is just 70 percent healed.

      Advice: Eskin's report has been seconded by FOX Sports' Mike Garofolo. It means there's no way Foles will return before the end of the regular season, and that he'll likely be questionable for a potential Wild Card appearance. The Eagles' hopes of a division championship are pinned to the scattershot arm and decision-making of Mark Sanchez. Rotoworld.com

    • Redskins send Colt McCoy to injured reserve
      Redskins placed QB Colt McCoy on injured reserve with a neck injury, ending his season.

      Advice: He has a herniated disc. So ends McCoy's farcical run as the Redskins' starter. Robert Griffin III will be backed up by Kirk Cousins for the season's final two games. McCoy completed 71.1 percent of his 128 pass attempts for coach Jay Gruden, posting an 8.26 YPA and 4:3 TD:INT ratio in the process. They're good numbers, but inevitably would have plummeted the longer McCoy was allowed to remain under center. A journeyman who will be 29 in 2015, McCoy will fight for someone's No. 2 job next season. Rotoworld.com
