  • Tony Best-Ball Pollard (12/131/1) gashes Rams
    Tony Pollard rushed 12 times for 131 yards and one touchdown, hauling in both of his targets for 12 yards in Dallas' Week 15 blowout win over the Rams.

    Advice: Pollard tacked on gains of 44, 33, and 25 yards as both he and Ezekiel Elliott (24/117/2) eclipsed 100-yards rushing for the second time this season. Although the rookie's proved time and time again he's more than capable of exploding when given extended run, it's worth noting 12 of his 14 touches occurred in the second half with the Cowboys leading 28-7. At the very least, Pollard flashed why he should be stashed in fantasy leagues that play all the way into Week 17 — it's possible Dallas has the division locked up (or they're eliminated altogether) by then.

  • Higbee stays hot with third 100-yard game
    Tyler Higbee caught 12-of-14 targets for 111 yards in Los Angeles' Week 15 loss to the Cowboys.

    Advice: The Rams once again made a concerted effort to get Higbee involved as a receiving threat, seeing the 26-year-old spike gains of 26, 12, 12, 10, and nine yards as Jared Goff reared back for a whopping 51 pass attempts in an uphill struggle. It's happened without Gerald Everett (ankle) available, but Higbee's ranked as fantasy's TE2 since Week 13 due in part to his 23 percent target share in the former's stead. Higbee should be treated as a top-five option against the Niners in Week 16 (despite the concerning matchup) as long as Everett remains sidelined. Rotoworld.com 40 minutes ago

  • Gurley held to 38 yds, pads stats with 4Q TD
    Todd Gurley rushed 11 times for 20 yards and a touchdown, adding three catches for 18 yards and another score in Los Angeles' Week 15 loss to Dallas.

    Advice: Five of Gurley's 11 carries occurred during Los Angeles' first three drives. The Rams mustered just five plays over their next two possessions, eventually being forced to dropback and call pass on every down while trailing 28-7 to begin the third quarter. It's still shocking the Cowboys were able to bottle Gurley to a season-low in yards without LB Leighton Vander Esch (neck) available. Fortunately for fantasy players, he was able to tack on a meaningless touchdown run with 3:23 remaining in the fourth quarter to pad his stats. Gurley's faced with a tough test against the Niners in Week 16 but will remain a usage-based RB2. Rotoworld.com 50 minutes ago

  • Kittle unable to carry Jimmy G to another win
    Jimmy Garoppolo completed 22-of-34 passes for 200 yards and one touchdown in the 49ers' Week 15 loss to the Falcons.

    Advice: This was a trainwreck performance from everyone but George Kittle who accounted for 67% of Jimmy G's yards. Garoppolo has been extremely hot and cold this season. He had four touchdowns in each of the three games against Arizona and New Orleans but is averaging 1.27 scores in his 11 other games. For the 49ers to win in the playoffs, Garoppolo needs to play more consistent football, especially with the Niners expected to play on the road. Jimmy G will be a forgettable QB2 against the Rams in Week 16. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:01 pm

  • Washington takes backseat to Jacobs Sunday
    DeAndre Washington managed 16 yards on six carries while also chipping in with two catches for six yards on three targets Sunday in the Raiders’ Week 15 loss to Jacksonville.

    Advice: Washington carried the mail for Oakland in Week 14 but reverted to handcuff status with Josh Jacobs (shoulder) back Sunday against Jacksonville. He was in on just 11 of the Raiders' 75 offensive snaps (14.7 percent). With Jacobs seeing workhorse usage, Washington probably belongs on the waiver wire (where he already resides in 63 percent of Yahoo leagues) ahead of next week's matchup against the Chargers.

  • Jalen Richard held to three touches vs. Jags
    Jalen Richard gained 11 yards on his lone rushing attempt while adding two catches for an additional 25 yards on three targets Sunday in Oakland’s Week 15 loss to Jacksonville.

    Advice: Richard was useful when called upon, but obviously that was not a frequent occurrence. With Josh Jacobs (shoulder) back from injury, Richard is no longer fantasy relevant. He and DeAndre Washington will continue to fight for scraps behind Jacobs when the Raiders visit Los Angeles in Week 16. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:54 pm

  • Tyrell breaks loose for 40-yard TD in Week 15
    Tyrell Williams delivered two grabs for 45 yards and a touchdown on three targets Sunday in the Raiders’ Week 15 loss to the Jaguars.

    Advice: Williams got the Raiders off and running with a 40-yard touchdown on the opening drive, sidestepping Jarrod Wilson on his way to the end zone for six. That snapped a six-game scoreless drought for Tyrell, who spent the rest of his afternoon doing ... well not much. Williams' drop on third down with 1:52 remaining proved costly as Daniel Carlson followed it by missing a 45-yard field goal that likely would have sealed the Raiders' victory. He'll have the #RevengeGame narrative working in his favor but not much else when Williams returns to his former L.A. stomping grounds in Week 16. All-Pro Casey Hayward held him to 25 yards when these teams met earlier this year. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:54 pm

  • Tevin Coleman only sees four carries in loss
    Tevin Coleman rushed four times for 40 yards in the 49ers' Week 15 loss to the Falcons.

    Advice: Coleman was a complementary piece behind Raheem Mostert today and can be largely ignored in fantasy with just two games remaining. The only thing Coleman has going for him is the fact that Mostert (1) and Matt Breida (2) fumbled today. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:54 pm

  • Cole paces Jags with 3-76-0 line in Week 15
    Keelan Cole corralled three of six targets for 76 yards Sunday in the Jaguars’ Week 15 victory over the Raiders.

    Advice: Cole led the team in receiving yards, though most of his production came on a single play, a 55-yard deep shot from Gardner Minshew on the Jags' opening drive. Starting in place of injured deep threat D.J. Chark (ankle), Cole matched a season-high with his six targets while also logging his most snaps (43) since Week 9. He won't be a consideration in season-long leagues, though Cole could be in play as a DFS dart throw next week in a favorable draw with Atlanta's inept secondary. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:53 pm

  • Prescott efficient on 23 passes, throws 2 TDs
    Dak Prescott completed 15-of-23 passes for 212 yards and two touchdowns in Dallas' Week 15 win over the Rams.

    Advice: Prescott initially appeared hampered by his sprained left hand but still found Jason Witten (4/36/1) for a one-handed 19-yard touchdown in the first quarter to surge the Cowboys to an early 7-0 lead. His second touchdown was due to a miscommunication in Los Angeles' secondary, allowing Tavon Austin to release wide open 17 yards from the closest defender and scamper in for a 59-yard score. Amari Cooper (1/19) and Michael Gallup (1/6) combined for just two catches on Prescott's season-low number of attempts as Dallas ultimately leaned on Ezekiel Elliott (24/117/2) and Tony Pollard (12/131/1) to out-rush the Rams 263 to 22. With Philadelphia leaking fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks in their last three games, Prescott warrants top-eight consideration among his position in Week 16's must-win divisional tilt.

  • Breida has two fumbles, four carries in loss
    Matt Breida rushed four times for 11 yards in the 49ers' Week 15 loss to the Falcons.

    Advice: Breida wasn't used much with Raheem Mostert entrenched as the top back on the roster and when he was on the field, he was costing the Niners points. Breida fumbled the ball twice despite only seeing four carries and two targets. Not great. After today's performance, it's safe to assume Breida will only be a depth option for San Francisco down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:51 pm

  • Dede Westbrook tanks in D.J. Chark's absence
    Dede Westbrook soaked up two catches for 14 yards on four targets while also logging seven yards on his lone rushing attempt Sunday in Jacksonville’s Week 15 win over Oakland.

    Advice: Even David Copperfield would be impressed by Westbrook's disappearing act in Week 15, though his no-show against the Raiders did little to improve his standing in the fantasy realm. Most expected Westbrook to see an uptick in usage with D.J. Chark (ankle) out, but obviously that didn't materialize as the third-year slot receiver saw his fewest targets since Week 8. Westbrook has established himself as a reasonable floor play in PPR leagues, though his ceiling is non-existent. The 26-year-old has been allergic to scoring touchdowns, finding the end zone just once in his last 12 games. Maybe that will change when visits the Falcons in Week 16. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:50 pm

  • Raheem Mostert handles 14 carries, scores TD
    Raheem Mostert rushed 14 times for 54 yards and one touchdown in the 49ers' Week 15 loss to the Falcons.

    Advice: Mostert "earned" his No. 1 back role with a few higher-efficient games and that is likely further cemented after today. Mostert was fine between the 20s and converted his goal-line carry into a touchdown. Meanwhile, Matt Breida fumbled twice and Tevin Coleman only had four carries. Mostert will be an upside RB2 against the Rams in Week 16. The Niners' backfield combined for 35 rush attempts the last time they met. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:47 pm

  • Deebo Samuel held to one catch in home loss
    Deebo Samuel caught 1-of-3 targets for 29 yards in the 49ers' Week 15 loss to the Falcons.

    Advice: Jimmy Garoppolo was having a hard time today even though he was at home against an injury Falcons defense. It was a reminder of how inconsistent this passing offense can be. Samuel should see more targets against the Rams in Week 16, but the only player with a high floor on the team is George Kittle. Treat Samuel as a boom-or-bust WR3. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:41 pm

  • Emmanuel Sanders held to nine yards vs. ATL
    Emmanuel Sanders caught 2-of-4 passes for nine yards in the 49ers' Week 15 loss to the Falcons.

    Advice: Sanders was completely overshadowed by George Kittle, who caught 13-of-17 targets and accounted for 67% of the team's receiving yards. Sanders has been effective when targeted but is at the mercy of Jimmy Garoppolo and the Niners' run-heavy offense. He's a bounceback candidate in Week 16 as long as the Rams don't deploy Jalen Ramsey on him. Sanders is a WR3. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:38 pm

  • Kittle has career-high 13 catches in SF loss
    George Kittle caught 13-of-17 targets for 134 yards in the 49ers' Week 15 loss to the Falcons.

    Advice: It was an embarrassing effort from the San Francisco offense, but Kittle himself looked dominant in all aspects of the game. He manhandled defenders while run blocking and accounted for 67% of the Niners' 200 receiving yards. It was one of the best games from a tight end this season and the highest reception total of Kittle's young career. Kittle will be locked inside the top three at the position next week against the Rams. He had 103 yards the last time they met. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:34 pm

  • Matt Ryan targets Julio 20 times in upset win
    Matt Ryan completed 25-of-39 passes for 210 yards and two touchdowns in the Falcons' Week 15 win over the Falcons.

    Advice: Matty Ice did one thing really well today -- target Julio Jones. A lot. Julio ended with 20 targets with the last one coming on Atlanta's game-winning touchdown. Ryan scanned the field before throwing a short strike right in front of the end zone. Julio took a big shot but secured the catch and replay review confirmed he crossed the goal line. It was a thrilling road victory, one that nobody saw coming. The offense should have an easier time in Week 16 with the Jaguars coming to Atlanta. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:27 pm

  • Zeke eats for 160 yards, 2 TDs on 27 touches
    Ezekiel Elliott rushed 24 times for 117 yards and two touchdowns, adding three catches for 43 receiving yards in Dallas' Week 15 win over the Rams.

    Advice: Elliott did most of his damage in three quarters as the Cowboys surprisingly built a 34-7 lead heading into the final 15 minutes. Zeke eclipsed the century mark early into the second half — scoring twice from inside the five-yard line as he snapped his five-game 100-yard drought — helping Dallas out-rush the Rams 263 to 22. He also became just the third player in franchise history to rush for 100 yards in at least 25 games. Tony Pollard (12/131/1) mixed in for 12 carries off the bench, but this backfield is obviously Elliott's all to himself moving forward in competitive contests. Expect Zeke to carry the load as a top-three option in Dallas' must-win divisional bout against the Eagles in Week 16. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:21 pm

  • Devonta Freeman slowed down by SF defense
    Devonta Freeman rushed 12 times for 39 yards in the Falcons' Week 15 win over the 49ers.

    Advice: Freeman added two receptions for 16 yards as a receiver, but it was still a very quiet game from the veteran. Freeman wasn't able to anything against the 49ers top-shelf defensive line and lost a goal-line carry to Qadree Ollison to make matters worse. It's possible that Freeman's knee injury is slowing him down a little, but he gets a golden opportunity next week with the Jaguars' porous run defense coming to Atlanta. Freeman will be an RB2.

  • Russell Gage picks up 27 yards on 6 targets
    Russell Gage caught 5-of-6 targets for 27 yards in the Falcons' Week 15 win over the 49ers.

    Advice: Gage is the new No. 2 receiver with Calvin Ridley on injured reserve, but targets funneled through Julio Jones today. In fact, Julio became the only receiver to reach 20 targets in a single game this season. That number should regress next week, which should help Gage out a bit. Expect Gage to see 5-9 targets against Jacksonville in Week 16. He's a flex option in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:13 pm
