Kendall Wright - WR - Chicago Bears
Chicago Bears WR Kendall Wright caught seven passes on 13 targets for 81 yards in a 20-10 loss to the Detroit Lions Saturday, Dec. 16.
Huddle Up: Wright now has 17 catches on 24 targets for 189 yards over the past two weeks, and it looks like he has become the go-to receiver for Mitchell Trubisky. He has flex potential in PPR formats.
Theo Riddick - RB - Detroit Lions
Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick ran eight times for 49 yards in a Week 15 win over the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: With Riddick and Tion Green splitting carries as Ameer Abdullah heals, it has been a logjam in Detroit. Riddick is battling some wrist issues, but overall this was not the strong performance the Lions hoped for from their running game.
Jordan Howard - RB - Chicago Bears
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed 10 times for 37 yards and caught all four of his pass attempts for 26 yards in a Week 15 loss to the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: With the Bears behind most of the game, QB Mitchell Trubisky had to throw and that took away some of the power Howard provides. Howard remains a decent low-end RB1 option at running back when he can run unfettered.
Matthew Stafford - QB - Detroit Lions
Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford threw 25-for-33 for 237 yards and two touchdowns in his team's 20-10 Week 15 win over the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: The Lions have to hope Stafford stays healthy, as they are riding his arm to a potential playoff berth. He only missed on eight attempts Saturday, so precision doesn't appear to be too much of an issue. Stafford remains a strong QB1 heading into next week.
Mitchell Trubisky - QB - Chicago Bears
Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky threw for 314 yards in Week 15 to go with one touchdown, but he was picked off three times against the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: At this stage if you have Mitchell Trubisky as your starter, you're likely not in the fantasy playoffs. Still, Trubisky is in no danger of losing his job at this point and may make a decent QB2 option to hold onto in case of an emergency.
Theo Riddick - RB - Detroit Lions
Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) suffered a wrist injury in Week 15 and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see how long Riddick may be sidelined. Ameer Abdullah and Tion Green would see time at running back while Riddick is sidelined and would have value in most leagues.
Damien Williams - RB - Miami Dolphins
Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams (illness, shoulder) did not travel with the team for their Week 15 game and has been ruled out.
Huddle Up: Kenyan Drake will receive most of the carries against the Buffalo Bills and can be a No. 2 running back or flex option in all leagues.
Dustin Hopkins - PK - Washington Redskins
Washington Redskins PK Dustin Hopkins (hip) was activated from the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 15. The team also waived PK Nick Rose.
Huddle Up: Hopkins has made nine of his 11 field goal attempts this season, but owners probably should be able to find better options to use.
Joe Mixon - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (concussion) has not cleared the concussion protocol yet and will not be able to play in Week 15.
Huddle Up: Giovani Bernard will receive most of the work at running back with Mixon sidelined. He is coming off a solid Week 14 performance and can be a flex option for owners.
Cameron Brate - TE - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate (hip) fully participated in practice Saturday, Dec. 15, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Brate has been a disappointing fantasy option over the last several weeks and has not received a lot of targets during that time. Owners in all leagues should consider other options to use in their lineups.
Mohamed Sanu - WR - Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (knee) was limited during practice Saturday, Dec. 15, but is not on the injury report for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Sanu has been targeted 23 times over the last three games and is coming off a 83-yard performance in Week 14. He should have a favorable matchup this week and can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option.
Tevin Coleman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (concussion) will not play in Week 15 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: It should be the Devonta Freeman show on Monday night, but the Falcons haven't always been willing to treat him as a featured back. Either way, he should be a near-lock for 20 touches in a good matchup against a defense missing at least two key front-seven players in Lavonte David and DT Gerald McCoy. Freeman should be in all fantasy lineups this weekend.
Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (shoulder) was activated from the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 16, and is expected to play in Week 15 against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Rodgers will be listed as questionable on the injury report, but it is a formality for a player coming off the Reserve/Injured list. The Panthers have yielded at least two touchdown passes to four of the last five quarterbacks they have faced - the one exception being the run-heavy New Orleans Saints - and none of the four are on par with Rodgers. A strong case can be made for Rodgers being ranked as the top quarterback play in Week 15.
Trevor Siemian - QB - Denver Broncos
Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (shoulder) will not require surgery on his sprained left shoulder, according to head coach Vance Joseph. He will be able to fully recover from his injury with rest and rehabilitation.
Huddle Up: Brock Osweiler is expected to start the team's final two games of the regular season, unless Paxton Lynch (ankle) is deemed healthy enough to resume playing. However, neither player should be anywhere near your fantasy starting lineups.
Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (shoulder) is expected to be activated from the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 16.
Huddle Up: Rodgers is no longer listed on the team's injury report and is poised to start Week 15's game versus the Carolina Panthers, after receiving medical clearance to resume playing earlier this week. He should be considered a top-five fantasy quarterback in all formats.
Jay Cutler - QB - Miami Dolphins
Miami Dolphins QB Jay Cutler has thrown multiple touchdown passes in each of his last six full games.
Huddle Up: Cutler has been a serviceable QB2 over his last six games, but he has topped 250 yards just twice in that same span and could have to deal with poor weather when he faces the Buffalo Bills on the road in Week 15. He isn't worth starting this weekend.
Robert Woods - WR - Los Angeles Rams
Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods (shoulder) is expected to return against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15, and WR Cooper Kupp averaged 8.0 targets in the three games Woods has been sidelined compared to 6.1 targets per game when Woods has played.
Huddle Up: Kupp is playing his best football of the season, and even if Woods' return means a couple of less looks, Kupp should be left in starting lineups in Week 15.
Giovani Bernard - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard is averaging a career-high 4.5 yards per carry and a career-high 11.3 yards per reception this season.
Huddle Up: A matchup with a tough Minnesota Vikings defense isn't ideal, but if Joe Mixon doesn't clear concussion protocol, Bernard will be worthy of a starting spot in Week 15.
Alex Collins - RB - Baltimore Ravens
Baltimore Ravens RB Alex Collins has reached double-digit carries in nine straight games, logging at least 15 carries in five straight and scoring in his last four.
Huddle Up: Collins is a strong RB2 against the Cleveland Browns in Week 15, and with the Indianapolis Colts and Cincinnati Bengals on tap in the final two weeks, Collins is poised to be a major asset in the fantasy playoffs.
Adam Thielen - WR - Minnesota Vikings
Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 15, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Thielen has been one of the better receivers in the NFL this season and should be considered at least a No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.
