Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton will have a tough matchup in Week 15 against a Packers defense that is allowing the second fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends this season. Green Bay has surrendered only one touchdown to the position this season and only one tight end has posted more than 10 fantasy points against. Burton, meanwhile, has disappeared from the Bear offense over the last month. Since posting 126 yards and one touchdown against the Patriots on October 21, Burton has only 16 receptions for 135 yards and one touchdown over his last seven games. After being heavily involved in the play-calling during the first half of the season, Burton has been the odd-man out. Burton will be tough to trust to post top-10 fantasy numbers among tight ends for Week 15.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Anthony Miller will try snap out of a two-game slump when the team tries to clinch the NFC North against the Packers in Week 15. The rookie receiver has a ton of talent, to go along with six touchdowns this season, but has only one catch for one yard over his last two games. Miller will face a Packers secondary that is allowing the third most fantasy points to opposing receivers this season, including 19 touchdowns to the position. Miller has only 30 receptions on the season and simply might not be ready, at this stage in his career, to consistently produce on a week-to-week basis. Despite the favorable matchup, Miller is too risky to start in most fantasy formats for Week 15.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen is having a fantastic season, racking up 63 receptions, averaging 4.6 yards per carry, 1,063 all-purpose yards and seven total touchdowns this season. But the second-year running back has been dismal in three career games against the division-rival Packers, with only 99 total yards and zero touchdowns. Green Bay's defense is allowing the 12th fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs this season but have allowed six different running backs to post 100-plus yards from scrimmage against them this season. Cohen has been an X-factor for the Bears offense this season and they will undoubtedly try to get the speedster going in this game. Cohen will be a high-risk, high-reward FLEX option for Week 15.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Corey Davis has provided fantasy owners with a range of emotions over the course of the season. Just when you think he has broken out, he responds with a dud the following week. His target volume was keeping him afloat for much of the early season, but now he has seen over four targets in only one of the last four contests. Treat Davis as a boom-or-bust WR2 this week against the New York Giants susceptible pass defense, but don't be too surprised if he falls in the bust range.
Chicago Bears running back Jordan Howard will try to stay hot against a Packers team in Week 15 that is allowing the 12th fewest fantasy point to opposing backs this season. Howard posted his first 100-yard rushing game of the season last week against the Rams and now has 177 rushing yards over his last two games. The cold weather in Chicago has certainly helped Howard's value lately as Chicago' offense has leaned on the running game with more consistency. The third-year running back will go up against a Green Bay run defense that has allowed only two 100-yard rushers all season. Howard tallied 82 yards on 15 carries against the Packers in Week 1 of the season and he will get plenty of opportunities to succeed early on. But the Bears game plan's have a tendency to shift mid-game and Howard has disappeared often this season from the second-half action as the team leans on the passing game. That alone won't allow Howard to ascend above low-end RB2 status for Week 15.
Tennessee Titans running back Dion Lewis could see a diminished role in the offense in Week 15 against the New York Giants following Derrick Henry's breakout performance last week. Lewis, who has been mostly unproductive as of late, has seen his touches slowly decrease over the last few weeks. Should the Titans fully commit to Henry as the lead back, Lewis could be rendered an RB3 going forward. He should still have a decided edge over Henry in the passing game, which will give him a decent floor in PPR leagues, however.
Fourth-string Los Angeles Chargers running back Detrez Newsome got the call that he was going to be playing in the teams biggest game of the season on Thursday night, and he ran with it. As the coaches used the standard two-headed approach that theyve used all season with the regular starters, Newsome got the ball six times and chugged along for 34 yards, including a couple huge runs as the team made their miraculous fourth-quarter comeback. He also caught a pair of passes for another 19 yards. Its unlikely that Newsome will see the field again anytime soon, but he certainly did his part in LAs huge win.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson (hip) is listed as questionable for Week 15 against the Packers. Robinson practiced in full on Friday, so he's fully expected to play on Sunday. A-Rob has just one 100-yard game this year and hasn't scored since he had two touchdowns on Nov. 11 against the Lions. In an offense that's become more reliant on running backs Tarik Cohen and Jordan Howard and a strong defense, Robinson is a low-ceiling WR3 this weekend against Green Bay.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Tyrell Williams was pushed into a more central role on Thursday night when No. 1 receiver Keenan Allen went down early in the game with a hip injury, and he made some key catches in the big-time win. While he hauled in six passes, Williams biggest moments of the game actually happened when the ball wasnt in his hands. First, he was the target on both of quarterback Philips Rivers interceptions, and second, he was the target on a fourth-down try late in the fourth quarter where the defender was called for holding in the end zone. The fresh set of downs allowed LA to score a touchdown and continue their comeback. Williams future hinges on the severity of Allens injury, but if Allen will miss next weeks game, Williams becomes a valuable play.
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky will try and bounce back from his worst game of the season when the team takes on the Packers in Week 15. Trubisky's three-interception performance came on the heels of a two-game absence after injuring his throwing shoulder against Minnesota. He will now try and right the ship against a Packers defense that is allowing the 12th fewest points to opposing quarterbacks this season. Green Bay's defense has allowed eight touchdown passes over their last four games but have done a solid job, in stretches, of limiting the opposition's passing yards. Trubisky has 24 total touchdowns, 2,579 passing yards and 386 rushing yards in a season that has been wildly inconsistent. Trubisky' fantasy ceiling is perhaps one of the highest in the entire league and now he has a shot at clinching division title against the Bears biggest rival. Trubisky will be a low-floor, high-ceiling fantasy selection for Week 15. Trubisky's potential makes him a lineup-worthy consideration during the fantasy playoffs.
Atlanta Falcons rookie running back Ito Smith (knee) was held out of practice on Friday and is now questionable to play in Week 15 against the Cardinals. It's a concern for fantasy owners that were hoping to use Smith as an RB3/flex this weekend in an excellent matchup. Smith has been out-touching Tevin Coleman of late, but this injury could change that. Coleman would be a much more attractive flex play in PPR leagues and would have RB2 upside if Smith was inactive.
Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper (ankle, knee) will play in Week 15 against the Cardinals, according to head coach Dan Quinn. Hooper missed practice Wednesday and Thursday but returned on Friday, putting him on track to play. Hooper has a decent floor as a low-end TE1/high-end TE2 and has four touchdowns on the season. However, he hasn't had more than five catches or 44 yards in any of his last four games, while scoring once in that span.
Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota has been very inconsistent from a fantasy perspective this season, which is a scary thought for fantasy owners in the playoffs. Despite his occasional struggles, he has been a productive passer against teams from the NFC over the course of his career. He has passed for 26 touchdowns and just seven interceptions in 13 career contests against NFC opponents. This statistic paired with the loss of the New York Giants best pass defender Landon Collins (shoulder) may allow Mariota to have a surprise performance this week, but it won't be enough to consider him a safe start by any means.
Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry exploded last week for a team record 238 yards and four touchdowns against the Jacksonville Jaguars. While it is nearly impossible to imagine a similar performance this week when they take on the New York Giants, the Titans will need Henry to be effective in the running game. Expect Henry to see s bump in carries than what we have been accustomed to this season as they try to establish a strong ground game against a suspect rush defense. Henry should be squarely in the RB2 conversation this week with enormous upside, but we have to remember his floor should he not find the end zone.
Jacksonville Jaguars kicker Josh Lambo (groin) is listed as questionable for Week 15 against the Redskins. Rookie wide receiver DJ Chark (quadriceps) has been ruled out. Lambo is expected to be able to play. He's had a good year while making 19 of his 21 field-goal attempts and 19 of his 20 extra points, but he's not much of a fantasy option in an inept offense led by quarterback Cody Parkey.
Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said that tight end Jordan Reed (toe) has been ruled out for Week 15 against the Jaguars. Given Reed's extensive injury history and with the Redskins having little chance at the playoffs, it wouldn't be surprising if Reed doesn't play again this year. Vernon Davis will take over the main pass-catching duties and will be a streaming TE2 option for those that are desperate.
Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson (illness) and wide receiver Josh Doctson (concussion) are questionable to face the Jaguars in Week 15. We suspect that both will play, but their status shouldn't be taken for granted. In an offense now led by quarterback Josh Johnson going up against a tough defense, it's really hard to trust any offensive weapon in Washington's offense in the fantasy playoffs. Thompson has done very little since returning on Dec. 3, making him a risky RB3/flex in PPP formats. Doctson will be a shaky WR4/flex if he plays.
Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers was one of the key reasons LA took down the Chiefs on Thursday night, but it didnt look too promising early on. Rivers first pass of the evening was picked off, as well as his last pass of the first half. The second interception was particularly painful because it came in the opponents end zone while LA was down by just seven points. The fourth quarter belonged to Rivers though, as he guided the Chargers back from a 14-point deficit that included multiple fourth-down throws into damn near non-existent windows. He capped it off by completing a wide-open pass to Mike Williams for a two-point conversion to end the game. What started as a terrible evening for Rivers finished up as an application for the Hall of Fame.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams got the chances, and he stepped up. After No. 1 wide receiver Keenan Allen left with a hip injury, the team turned their attention to Williams, and he carried them. Williams finished the night with seven catches on nine targets for 76 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran for a touchdown and caught the winning two-point conversion. Williams was an absolute monster in the red zone, causing much outrage amongst Chiefs defenders as they continuously looked for flags for push-offs. Instead, Williams remained untouched by penalties and looked like he was worth every bit of the first-round pick that was spent on him last year. Williams has talent coming out of his ears, and if LAs offense continues to deal with so many injuries, hell get to keep showcasing it.
Los Angeles Chargers rookie running back Justin Jackson carried the load on Thursday night against the Chiefs. Jackson was called on to be the starter after first- and second-string backs Melvin Gordon (knee) and Austin Ekeler (concussion) were sidelined with injuries. Jackson was comfortable in the backfield and carried the ball 16 times on the evening for 58 yards and a touchdown. He also chipped in 27 receiving yards. Jackson shared the backfield work with Detrez Newsome, but Jackson was clearly the primary back. Its unlikely Jackson will get another start since Gordon was so nearly able to go in this game, but even if he works as the secondary back, Jackson has proven hes ready to contribute in the NFL.
