NEW YORK (AP) The NFL has flexed the Green Bay Packers' trip to San Francisco to prime time on Nov. 24 along with announcing kickoff times for a handful of Week 16 games.

With Tuesday's announcement, the Packers (8-2) and 49ers (8-1) replace Seattle at Philadelphia, which now will kick off at 1 p.m. ET on Nov. 24. Carolina at New Orleans moves from FOX to CBS, while Miami at Cleveland switches from CBS to Fox with kickoff times unchanged for both games.

The NFL had left the dates for some games for Week 16 undetermined.

Now Houston will play Tampa Bay on Dec. 21 at 1 p.m. ET on NFL Network followed by Buffalo at New England at 4:30 p.m. ET, and the tripleheader will be capped by the Los Angeles Rams visiting San Francisco at 8:15 p.m. ET. On Dec. 22, Detroit now is scheduled to visit Denver with Oakland's game at the Chargers both set for 4:05 p.m. ET kickoffs.

Player Notes
Boston Scott Dec 15 4:30pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott retained a role in Week 15, but came back down to Earth in terms of production compared to his surprisingly strong outing in Week 14. This week, Scott ran the ball six times for 26 yards and caught seven passes for 39 yards. He was thoroughly outplayed by rookie Miles Sanders this time around and likely disappointed any fantasy owners who were chasing his previous performance.

Deshaun Watson Dec 15 4:30pm ET

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson completed 19-of-27 passes for 243 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions against the Titans in Week 15. He also added 32 rushing yards in the game. Watson now has 11 interceptions on the year, a new career-high, but he also has a career-high 33 total touchdowns on the year (26 passing, 7 rushing). Watson's amongst the top tier of fantasy quarterbacks in the game and should be one of the first quarterbacks off the board once again next year. His next matchup is an extremely favorable one against the Buccaneers in Week 16.

Dallas Goedert Dec 15 4:30pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert caught five passes in Week 15, gaining 55 yards. Goedert was expected to take on a much bigger role this week with most of the Eagles wide receivers out due to injury, but he ended up with just six targets and a somewhat disappointing final line.

Zach Ertz Dec 15 4:30pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz caught five passes in a Week 15 win, gaining 61 yards and scoring a touchdown. Ertz was expected to play a huge role in this one, and ended up with a team-leading 10 targets, but only came down with five of them. The touchdown made it a decent fantasy performance overall, but likely left his fantasy owners wanting for more.

Carlos Hyde Dec 15 4:30pm ET

Houston Texans running back Carlos Hyde topped 100 rushing yards for the third time this year against the Titans in Week 15. Hyde had 26 carries for 104 yards and a touchdown in the game. He's now over 1,000 rushing yards on the season with five touchdowns. Hyde's been a solid RB2 most of the year in non-PPR leagues. He's less valuable in PPR as he has just nine receptions on the year. However, it's been a solid season nonetheless for Hyde and he'll look to keep it going against the Buccaneers in Week 16.

Jameis Winston Dec 15 4:30pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston rewarded fantasy owners who stuck with him in Week 15 after his terrible Week 14 performance. Winston threw for 458 yards and four touchdowns in the Bucs win over the Detroit Lions. The fifth-year quarterback also threw an interception, which is expected at this point. Even without his two top receivers available for most of the game, Winston was able to dominate. He will slot in as a mid-range QB1 against the Houston Texans in Week 16.

JJ Arcega-Whiteside Dec 15 4:30pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles rookie wide receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside did absolutely nothing in a Week 15 win over Washington. Arcega-Whiteside was targeted twice but did not come up with a catch despite being essentially one of two wide receivers on the field for the Eagles all game. He suffered a hamstring injury at the end of last week's game, but was reportedly fine and wasn't supposed to be limited at all. His goose egg may have knocked more than a few fantasy owners out of the playoffs.

Carson Wentz Dec 15 4:20pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz completed 30 of his 43 pass attempts in Week 15, tossing three touchdowns and gaining 266 yards. Wentz's first score came on a 15-yard pass to Miles Sanders. His second was on a two-yard strike to Zach Ertz, and his third was a huge fourth quarter score on a four-yard pass to Greg Ward. Wentz was solid in this one and led his team to a crucial win over Washington.

Miles Sanders Dec 15 4:20pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles rookie running back Miles Sanders was amazing in Week 15, piling up 122 yards on 19 carries and catching six passes for 50 more yards. Sanders scored once on the ground and once through the air. His rushing score was a one-yard plunge and his passing game score came on a great 15-yard catch in the corner of the end zone. Sanders was expected to have a huge role in this one with Jordan Howard (shoulder) still out and most of the Eagles wide receivers dealing with injuries as well.

David Njoku Dec 15 4:00pm ET

Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku (coach's decision) is inactive for Week 15 against the Arizona Cardinals. Coach Reddie Kitchens reportedly "was hesitant" to activate Njoku off the IR last week- and the 23-year-old struggled against the Bengals. Backups Demetrius Harris and Ricky Seals-Jones will likely share targets, which is unfortunate because the Cardinals are the most tight-end-friendly matchup in fantasy football. Neither player is the most appealing option.

Chris Godwin Dec 15 3:40pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions due to a hamstring injury. Before leaving the game, Godwin had caught five passes for 121 yards. With Mike Evans also out, the Bucs receiving corps will be led by Breshad Perriman and Scott Miller.

Chris Godwin Dec 15 3:40pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin left Sunday's game against the Lions with an apparent leg injury. He will not return. Godwin was spotted limping after running a route, and after attempting to exit the game under his own power, he was eventually carted back to the locker room. Before his exit, the 23-year-old caught five of his seven targets for 121 yards. Not good news for a Bucs team that recently announced that Mike Evans (hamstring) could miss the remainder of the year after suffering an ailment of his own.

David Njoku Dec 15 2:53pm ET

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku has been declared inactive for the team's Week 15 game. Njoku did not look sharp during practice this week and struggled with drops and some routes during the week, according to the Associated Press' Tom Withers.

Fantasy Spin: Njoku recently returned from the Reserve/Injured list but appears to need more time to return to game speed. Demetrius Harris likely will serve as the starting tight end but can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Adam Thielen Dec 15 2:50pm ET

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (hamstring) is listed as active for Week 15's matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers. This was expected as Thielen completed a full week of practice. He will return to a favorable matchup as stud cornerback Desmond King will not play and the Chargers rank 20th in pass DVOA for the season. The Vikings passing game has been rolling as of late and they project to have to throw in this game as they're favored by just one point. Obviously, Thielen comes with some risk as he's returning from a lengthy injury absence, but he can be utilized in fantasy lineups as a high-end WR3 with sneaky upside in this matchup.

Jayron Kearse Dec 15 2:43pm ET

The Minnesota Vikings have declared RB Alexander Mattison, DE Hercules Mata'afa, OT Aviante Collins, DE Jalyn Holmes, SS Jayron Kearse, OL Olisaemeka Udoh and OG Dru Samia inactive for Week 15.

Mike Daniels Dec 15 2:03pm ET

Detroit Lions DT Mike Daniels (arm) suffered an arm injury during the Week 15 game and is considered questionable to return.
