Player Notes

  • Julius Thomas nearly hauls in two long passes
    Julius Thomas caught 2-of-4 targets for 11 yards in the Dolphins' Week 14 win over the Patriots.

    Advice: Jay Cutler barely missed Thomas on two deep passes which would have ignited his stat line. Thomas has now crossed 30 yards just twice all season and isn't anything more than a touchdown or bust streaming option in Week 15. Rotoworld.com 24 minutes ago

  • WR Kenny Stills quiet in win over Patriots
    Kenny Stills caught 2-of-4 targets for 18 yards and in the Dolphins' Week 14 win over the Patriots.

    Advice: Stills was relatively quiet in a game the Dolphins thoroughly dominated. With Cutler at the helm, Stills is an unreliable WR4 with upside. Rotoworld.com 28 minutes ago

  • Jakeem Grant scores 25-yard touchdown in win
    Jakeem Grant caught 2-of-4 targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins Week 14 win over the Patriots.

    Advice: Grant's touchdown catch came on a jump ball over Malcolm Butler where he did a great job getting in position to make the catch. Despite turning in a solid fantasy performance, Grant shouldn't be on the radar in Week 15 as the Dolphins fourth or fifth receiving option. Rotoworld.com 30 minutes ago

  • DeVante Parker goes 4/40/0 in Week 14 win
    DeVante Parker caught 4-of-6 targets for 40 yards in the Dolphins' Week 14 win over the Patriots.

    Advice: The Dolphins tried to get Parker involved early, designing an easy crossing route to try and get him going. Unfortunately, he took his eyes off the ball and dropped it. Parker's game didn't get much better, finishing with only 40 yards. This is his fourth straight game with less than 50 yards. He is a low-floor WR4 against Buffalo in Week 15.

  • Jay Cutler throws three touchdowns in win
    Jay Cutler completed 25-of-38 passes for 263 yards and three touchdowns in the Dolphins' Week 14 win over the Patriots.

    Advice: Cutler played his best game of the season so far, threading the Patriots secondary with ease. His receivers got open at will against the Patriots man defense. He threw two short touchdowns to Jarvis Landry as well as a 25-yarder to Jakeem Grant. Despite turning in a good performance this week, Cutler won't be more than a mid-range QB2 against Buffalo in Week 15. Rotoworld.com 40 minutes ago

  • Jarvis Landry scores two touchdowns in win
    Jarvis Landry caught 8-of-8 targets for 46 yards and two touchdowns in the Dolphins' Week 14 win over the Patriots.

    Advice: Landry played a big part in the Dolphins' win over the Patriots, especially his red zone efficiency. His first touchdown came on a play-action bootleg from five yards out. His second touchdown came from four yards out where he successfully sat in between two linebackers in the Patriots zone. Landry has an easy matchup against the Bills defense in Week 15.

  • Kenyan Drake racks up 193 scrimmage yards
    Kenyan Drake rushed 25 times for 114 yards and caught 5-of-6 targets for 79 yards in the Dolphins' Week 14 win over the Patriots.

    Advice: Drake looked electric as the Dolphins' workhorse. On two occasions he dodged an unblocked blitzing player behind the line of scrimmage and ran for a big gain. The Dolphins took advantage of Drake's pass-catching ability, lining him out wide against Patriots' linebackers and creating an easy mismatch, resulting in multiple big plays. His diverse skill set has opened up their offense. Drake will be a high-upside RB1 in Week 14 against the Bills as long as RB Damien Williams remains sidelined. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:15 pm

  • Damien Williams headlines Dolphins' inactives
    Dolphins declared RB Damien Williams, QB Matt Moore, CB Cordrea Tankersley, OG Isaac Asiata, G/T Jermon Bushrod, DE Cameron Malveaux, and TE AJ Derby inactive for Week 14 against the Patriots.

    Advice: Williams was already ruled out with a shoulder issue, and Tankersley has ankle and shoulder injuries. Kenyan Drake will remain a volume-driven RB2. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:13 pm

  • Broncos sign TE Matt LaCosse
    Broncos signed TE Matt LaCosse off the Giants' practice squad.

    Advice: LaCosse was an offseason favorite among Giants beat writers in New York, but he never actually did anything in real games. The Broncos are in constant search of tight end help. They curiously gave up on AJ Derby earlier this year. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:29 pm

  • Andre Williams (wrist) done for the season
    Chargers RB Andre Williams (wrist surgery) is done for the season.

    Advice: Williams has been playing special teams while operating as the Chargers' No. 4 running back behind Melvin Gordon, Austin Ekeler, and Branden Oliver. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:30 pm

  • Mularkey: Mariota injury is not serious
    Titans coach Mike Mularkey confirmed Monday that Marcus Mariota's knee injury is not serious.

    Advice: Mariota suffered some sort of mild knee sprain in Sunday's loss to Arizona, but he never missed a snap and is expected to practice on Wednesday. In both fantasy and real life, Mariota has been one of the NFL's biggest 2017 disappointments regardless of injuries. The Titans badly need an influx of fresh-thinking coaching talent, but Mike Mularkey will probably return in 2018 because 8-5 Tennessee has a good won-loss record. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:08 pm

  • Lions won't commit to Abdullah as starter
    Speaking Sunday, Lions coach Jim Caldwell declined to call Ameer Abdullah his starting running back.

    Advice: Evidently cleared from his neck injury, Abdullah was inactive for Sunday's win over the Bucs. Caldwell was fuzzy on Abdullah's status going forward. It's a deserved benching, though Abdullah is certainly one of the Lions' 46 best players. He should return to a rotation with Theo Riddick, Tion Green and perhaps Zach Zenner. Abdullah's re-draft value is shot. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:29 pm

  • Zay Jones demoted behind Deonte Thompson
    Zay Jones has been demoted behind Deonte Thompson.

    Advice: Bills OC Rick Dennison said the pair will split time based on the game plan. Thompson had the advantage for Sunday's game against the Colts. It's a moot point if Kelvin Benjamin (knee) misses Week 15, but confirmation the Bills are still waiting for something more from their rookie second-rounder. Jones is off the re-draft radar.

  • Nathan Peterman in the concussion protocol
    Bills QB Nathan Peterman is officially in the league's concussion protocol.

    Advice: Peterman took a helmet shot in the third quarter of Sunday's Snow Bowl. Tyrod Taylor (knee) seems to be making progress, and is the favorite to be under center for the Bills in Week 15. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:59 am

  • McDermott: Tyrod Taylor remains starting QB
    Speaking Monday, Bills coach Sean McDermott said Tyrod Taylor remains the team's starting quarterback when healthy.

    Advice: McDermott also said Taylor's Week 14 deactivation was "mostly" based on his health, whatever that means. It appears there's a decent chance Taylor is back for Week 15 against the Dolphins. Nathan Peterman is in the concussion protocol. Despite his recent disappointments and health issues, Taylor will be on the streaming radar if he can give it a go. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:56 am

  • O'Brien expects T.J. Yates to start Week 15
    Texans coach Bill O'Brien said he expects T.J. Yates to start Week 15 against the Jaguars.

    Advice: This always appeared to be the likely outcome after Tom Savage suffered a nasty-looking concussion against the 49ers. Yates played relatively well after entering the game, hooking up with DeAndre Hopkins for two touchdowns, but he will face a considerably more difficult test this week in Jacksonville. The Jaguars DST will certainly be highly owned in DFS. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:12 am

  • Bowles: Bryce Petty will start if McCown out
    Jets coach Todd Bowles said Bryce Petty will start if Josh McCown (broken hand) cannot play Week 15 against the Saints.

    Advice: It makes sense as Petty has been the No. 2 quarterback all season and replaced McCown against the Broncos. Petty was terrible in relief, however, and it would make sense for the Jets to see how bad Christian Hackenberg actually is. If McCown's season is over, both Petty and Hackenberg should see snaps down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:17 am

  • Greg Olsen played 92 percent of snaps Week 14
    Greg Olsen played 59-of-64 (92 percent) snaps Week 14 against the Vikings.

    Advice: Olsen briefly left after getting his surgically-repaired foot rolled up, but he only ended up missing a few snaps. The snap share is good to see, but Olsen was only targeted once in the win and did not come down with the pass. Coach Ron Rivera said after the game Olsen's "role will expand," but it will be tough to trust him as a starting option in the fantasy semifinals. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:11 am

  • Martavis Bryant does little in Week 14
    Martavis Bryant caught 6-of-10 targets for 33 yards in Week 14 against Baltimore.

    Advice: Bryant was the No. 2 receiver with JuJu Smith-Schuster sidelined. He had a quiet night despite double-digit targets and finished with the same amount of yards as Eli Rogers. Bryant will be relegated to No. 3 duties with Smith-Schuster returning in Week 15 Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:35 pm

  • Joe Flacco throws for 269 yards, 2 TDs
    Joe Flacco completed 20-of-35 passes for 269 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in Week 14 against the Steelers.

    Advice: Flacco bounced back after an opening drive interception. He had the Ravens in position to win late in the fourth quarter, but couldn't hold off the Steelers. Flacco's touchdowns were a 30-yard pass to Chris Moore and a fullback dumpoff. He's played better over the last two weeks, but Flacco has still been one of the worst starters in the league. Flacco has a matchup with the Browns in Week 15. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:11 pm
