Player Notes

  • Matthew Stafford (back) ruled out for Sunday
    Matthew Stafford (back, hip) is out for the Lions' Week 15 matchup against the Buccaneers.

    Advice: David Blough will continue to start under center. The Lions are presently implied to score a pedestrian 21 points against the Buccaneers' pass-funnel defense. The good news for Kenny Golladay is that he should get all the targets he can handle with both Marvin Jones (ankle, IR) and T.J. Hockenson (ankle, IR) out of the picture. Friday, 1:21 pm

  • Shurmur: Eli could start rest of season
    Giants coach Pat Shurmur said Eli Manning could start the team's final two games.

    Advice: Starter Daniel Jones (ankle) resumed practicing this week, though there's no use pushing their franchise signal-caller in the midst of a lost season. With Jones an obvious shutdown candidate, Manning could receive an extended farewell playing out the stretch as New York's starter. Though no longer a starting-caliber arm, Manning could warrant low-end streaming consideration with enticing matchups against Miami and Washington the next two weeks. Friday, 9:48 am

  • Jones, Engram both ruled out against Dolphins
    Daniel Jones (ankle) is out for Week 15 against the Dolphins.

    Advice: It's merely a formality as ESPN's Jordan Raanan had already reported Jones was unlikely to play this week. His absence will afford Eli Manning another start under center. Though far from a sure thing, Eli could make sense as a contrarian DFS play at home (perhaps starting at MetLife Stadium for the final time) against one of the league's worst secondaries. Tight ends Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion) will also spend Week 15 as spectators. Friday, 9:17 am
    Week 15 Projected Rank
  • Arians confirms Jameis as Week 15 starter
    Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians confirmed Jameis Winston (thumb) will start Week 15 against the Lions.

    Advice: Winston suffered a hairline fracture in his right (throwing) thumb last week, but still threw for a career-high 456 yards in a win over Indianapolis. Arians declared Winston "ready to go" after seeing him throw at Friday's end-of-week session. Even without Mike Evans (hamstring), Winston should be in for a monster game Sunday against a subpar Lions secondary. He belongs in all season-long lineups and should be a popular DFS commodity along with stacking partner Chris Godwin. Friday, 9:12 am

  • Darnold has 2-score night, Jets get destroyed
    Sam Darnold completed 18-of-32 passes for 218 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Jets' 42-21, Week 15 loss to the Ravens.

    Advice: Darnold also lost a fumble on an evening where the Jets got utterly annihilated. They entered the fourth quarter trailing 35-7, but a blocked punt score and an 18-yard touchdown to Jamison Crowder helped Gang Green and Darnold save a little face. As has been the case for most of the past six weeks, Darnold was not wildly bad, but he wasn't good, either. His interception was a truly atrocious red zone decision, while the fumble came in the Jets' own territory. Both touchdown strikes were solid throws, and the first came after Crowder dropped a wide-open score one play earlier. Darnold has not gone all the way off the rails like he was threatening to do in late October, but his progress has been lurching at best. The Steelers are another nightmare opponent for Week 16. Thursday, 8:24 pm

  • L-Jax sets QB rushing record, annihilates NYJ
    Lamar Jackson completed 15-of-23 passes for 212 yards and five touchdowns in the Ravens' 42-21, Week 15 win over the Jets, adding eight rushes for 86 additional yards.

    Advice: It was an(other) historic night for MVP frontrunner, as he broke Michael Vick's single-season rushing record for a quarterback on the opening drive. It had stood for 13 years. Jackson now has 1,103 yards on the ground. It was through the air where Jackson really shined, however, turning in his third five-score performance of the year. He tallied touchdowns of five, one, 24, 33 and 10 yards, with the two longest going to Marquise Brown and Seth Roberts. Brown's was perfectly delivered at the back of the end zone, while Roberts was found in needle-tight coverage. Jackson has 33 passing scores compared to just six picks, and is up to 40 total touchdowns. The Week 16 Browns figure to be his final victim before a likely rest vs. the Steelers in Week 17. Thursday, 8:13 pm

  • Brady (elbow) practicing in full for Week 15
    Tom Brady (elbow) is practicing in full for Week 15 against the Bengals.

    Advice: Brady had his elbow heavily wrapped after last week's loss to Kansas City, but his availability for Sunday's game in Cincinnati was never a concern. The 42-year-old has looked his age recently, though his matchup against the lowly Bengals couldn't be much better. The Patriots enter Sunday as 9.5-point road favorites. Thursday, 1:51 pm
    Week 15 Projected Rank
  • Patrick Mahomes (hand) practicing in full
    Patrick Mahomes (hand) took snaps under center at Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Per NFL Network's James Palmer, Mahomes' hand was "really swollen" on Monday and Tuesday but improved enough for him to get in what the Chiefs deemed as a "full" practice on Wednesday. Coach Andy Reid told Palmer Wednesday was the first time Mahomes was really able to grip the ball and drive it downfield since suffering his injury Sunday at New England. The reigning MVP may not be at his best when the Chiefs host Denver in Week 15, but Mahomes at 70 or 80 percent is still better than most. Thursday, 11:59 am

  • Eagles put up 20 unanswered to survive Giants
    Carson Wentz completed 33-of-50 passes for 325 yards and two touchdowns in the Eagles' 23-17, Week 14 overtime win over the Giants Monday night.

    Advice: This game featured the worst first quarter of pro football we've seen all season. Neither team could move the ball, and Wentz was overall pretty terrible the entire first half. He went to the break with 97 passing yards and a lost fumble and the Eagles getting booed off the field down 17-3. Philly dominated the second half, however, but it was still not a good look to be pushed to the brink and into overtime on your home field by the 2-10 Giants. Both of Wentz's scores were two-yard hookups with Zach Ertz. By the time the game ended, the Eagles had literally one healthy receiver, Greg Ward. Wentz has been brutal in 2019, but the 6-7 Eagles now control their own destiny with the Redskins, Cowboys, and Giants in Weeks 15-17. Monday, 8:38 pm
    Week 15 Projected Rank
  • Russell Wilson blanked by Rams in SNF loss
    Russell Wilson completed 22-of-36 passes for 245 yards with an interception in Week 15 against the Rams.

    Advice: Wilson never really got going in this one, leading the Seahawks to a bunch of stalled drives. He was under constant pressures, taking five sacks and forcing throws outside the pocket. Wilson's interception came on a desperation Hail Mary with under two minutes remaining, but this was easily his worst game. It's a hit to Wilson's MVP chances and puts Seattle behind the 49ers for the No. 1 seed. Wilson has a rebound spot against a reeling Panthers secondary in Week 15. Sunday, 8:37 pm
    Week 15 Projected Rank
  • Goff throws 2 TDs, Rams stay in playoff hunt
    Jared Goff completed 22-of-31 passes for 293 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Rams' Week 14 win over Seattle.

    Advice: Goff started off hot, leading the Rams to scoring drives on three of their first four possessions. Bad Goff showed up in the second half, getting intercepted on consecutive drives, including a pick-six on the opening possession. Goff’s touchdowns were easy red-zone throws to Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp. This was far from a perfect game from Goff, but he now has multiple touchdowns passes in back-to-back weeks. The Rams improved to 8-5 and stayed in the Wild Card hunt with the win. Goff will be a high-end QB2 for a matchup with Dallas in Week 15. Sunday, 8:29 pm
    Week 15 Projected Rank
  • Raiders, Carr booed off the field vs. Titans
    Derek Carr completed 25-of-34 passes for 263 yards and two touchdowns in the Raiders' Week 14 loss to the Titans.

    Advice: The Raiders were rightfully booed while the final seconds ticked off in the Titans, 42-21, victory. Carr was largely ineffective, especially in the second half when the Raiders needed big plays to get back into the game. The Raiders were without Trent Brown, Josh Jacobs, and Hunter Renfrow, but there's no excuse to lose by three touchdowns to a team that was without multiple starting defenders. Carr is barely on the two-quarterback-league radar, even against a Jaguars team that's given up in recent weeks. Sunday, 5:25 pm
    Week 15 Projected Rank
  • Tannehill adds 391-3 to his HOF-level stretch
    Ryan Tannehill completed 21-of-27 passes for 391 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception in the Titans' Week 14 win over the Raiders.

    Advice: As everyone expected, Tannehill has morphed into a Hall of Fame quarterback since taking the keys from Marcus Mariota in Week 7. The ex-Dolphin is now averaging 9.9 yards per attempt and is leading all quarterbacks in expected points added per attempt. One main difference between Tennessee Tannehill and Miami Tannehill has been confidence. This week, Tannehill was maneuvering in and out of the pocket and throwing the ball deeper downfield, including across field throws for touchdowns. Tannehill should continue his hot stretch in Week 15 with the burnable Texans coming to Nashville. He'll be on the QB1/2 radar then. Sunday, 4:56 pm
    Week 15 Projected Rank
  • Kyler Murray (2 TDs, 3 INT) smothered in loss
    Kyler Murray completed 20-of-30 passes for 194 yards, two touchdowns, and three picks in the Cardinals' Week 14 loss to the Steelers.

    Advice: Murray was unsurprisingly under duress for a majority of play, taking five sacks and tossing three picks — including the game-ending turnover to Joe Haden, the illustrious corner's second interception of the afternoon. The Steelers also made a concerted effort to keep Murray from scrambling, wrapping him up every time he took off around the edges. That resulted in a five-yard strike to Charles Clay upright from the pocket and another 34-yard deep ball to David Johnson over the top of Pittsburgh's secondary. Assuming this performance against the vaunted 'Steel Curtain 2.0' didn't tank your fantasy season, Murray's rushing floor can still be depended on since his two yards on the ground were his fewest since Week 6 against the Falcons (and thus an outlier). The Cardinals will continue chasing their fourth win of the season against the Browns in Week 15. Sunday, 4:53 pm
    Week 15 Projected Rank
  • Gardner Minshew throws for 162 yards in loss
    Gardner Minshew completed 24-of-37 passes for 162 yards, one touchdown and zero interceptions in the Jaguars' 45-10, Week 14 loss to the Chargers.

    Advice: Minshew added an additional 31 yards on six carries. He struggled to move the offense for most of the afternoon, although the team's lackluster run game didn’t help matters. Minshew appeared to perhaps check down a bit too often, as replays showed DJ Chark among others breaking free downfield on more than one occasion. Minshew led the offense to more than 20 points in four of his first eight starts, but the Jaguars have now gone five consecutive games without surpassing that threshold. It’s tough to fire him up as more than a mid-tier QB2 in Week 15 despite the prime matchup against the Raiders. Sunday, 4:23 pm
    Week 15 Projected Rank
  • Rivers: 314 yards, 3 TDs on just 22 attempts
    Philip Rivers completed 16-of-22 passes for 314 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Chargers' 45-10, Week 14 win over the Jaguars.

    Advice: Rivers only played three quarters before being relieved by Tyrod Taylor. The long-time Chargers’ franchise QB had his best game of the season, hooking up with Hunter Henry, Mike Williams and Austin Ekeler for touchdowns. The Ekeler score was simply a screen that wound up going 84 yards to the house, but Rivers deserves plenty of credit for his strikes to Williams and Henry. His day could've been even bigger if rookie Jalen Guyton didn't drop a potential 50-plus yard touchdown. Rivers has certainly had his lows this season, but this Chargers offense is still capable of putting up points with their talented group of skill-position players against the league’s more middling defenses. Fire up Rivers as an upside QB2 at home in Week 15 against the Vikings. Sunday, 4:15 pm
    Week 15 Projected Rank
  • Hodges, Steel Curtain 2.0 surge Pitt to 8-5
    Devlin Hodges completed 16-of-19 passes for 152 yards and one touchdown in Pittsburgh's Week 14 win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: He played outside of the pocket on a handful of dropbacks, too, sprinkling in an additional 34 yards with his legs. Hodges' numbers through the air aren't eye-popping, but it's clear he's added another dimension to the Steelers' offense in his last two outings — something Mason Rudolph failed to do all season. 'Duck' also become the first undrafted quarterback in league history to win his first three career starts. Pittsburgh's swarming Steel Curtain 2.0 remains their catalyst and the majority reason for the Steelers' 8-5 record this year as coach Mike Tomlin astonishingly clinched his 13th straight season without a losing campaign. They'll again be put to the test against Josh Allen and the Bills' electric offense in Week 15. Sunday, 4:15 pm
    Week 15 Projected Rank
  • Turnovers and sacks haunt Kyle Allen in loss
    Kyle Allen completed 28-of-41 passes attempts for 293 yards, one touchdown, two interceptions, and one lost fumble in the Panthers' Week 14 loss to the Falcons.

    Advice: Allen was a fine fantasy play -- he added a garbage-time goal-line rushing touchdown -- but he completely tanked any chance the Panthers had at winning in Atlanta. Allen took five sacks for 48 yards, was inaccurate as a passer, and didn't elevate his teammates. Instead, he racked up meaningless production down multiple scores thanks to Christian McCaffrey, D.J. Moore, and Ian Thomas making plays. Carolina should see what they have in rookie QB Will Grier but that hasn't been discussed publicly. Allen will be a low-end QB2 against the Seahawks at home next week. Sunday, 2:34 pm
    Week 15 Projected Rank
  • Mayfield tosses 2 INTs, has rushing TD in win
    Baker Mayfield completed just 11-of-24 passes for 192 scoreless yards and two interceptions in the Browns' 27-19, Week 14 win over the Bengals.

    Advice: He was able to "save" his day a bit with a seven-yard rushing touchdown, Mayfield's third rushing score of the year. It's been a sophomore season to forget for Mayfield. He has just three multi-score passing games with four multi-INT efforts. Mayfield is in a solid on-paper Week 15 spot against the lowly Cardinals, putting Mayfield on the streaming radar in an up-pace matchup. Sunday, 2:28 pm
    Week 15 Projected Rank
  • Dalton has 262 scoreless yards in Week 14
    Andy Dalton completed 22-of-38 passes for 262 scoreless yards and one interception in the Bengals' 27-19, Week 14 loss to the Browns.

    Advice: His interception was returned 61 yards for a pick-six by Denzel Ward. Joe Mixon was the offense for the Bengals. Dalton is one of the worst fantasy quarterbacks and will face the Patriots in Week 15. He won't even be a two-QB league option. Sunday, 2:22 pm
