  Ravens | Lamar Jackson day-to-day    Mon Dec 9, 06:18 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (quadriceps) suffered a quadriceps injury during the Week 14 game and is considered day-to-day, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: He should be fine. Fantasy GMs may get scared off by this injury but Jackson is good enough to post QB1 numbers even when he's not 100 percent.

  Bengals | A.J. Green still day-to-day    Mon Dec 9, 04:30 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) is still considered day-to-day, according to head coach Zac Taylor.

Footballguys view: It would be news if he was actually practicing. Taylor continues to hope that Green will play this season but we don't see that happening. They are banged up at the position even more now with Auden Tate injured.

  Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes injury update    Mon Dec 9, 01:34 PM

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (hand) did not suffer a broken bone in his hand in Week 14 and is expected to be fine for Week 15 against the Denver Broncos, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Footballguys view: We'll see Mahomes limited during the week of practice. It's a tough matchup against the Broncos secondary that played well against Deshaun Watson in Week 14. However, this is Mahomes -- even banged up -- and he's worthy of a QB1 start as per usual in week two of the fantasy playoffs.

  Patriots | Tom Brady struggling with elbow    Mon Dec 9, 08:41 AM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (elbow) has really seen his practice time diminish due to maintenance of his elbow injury.

Footballguys view: Brady just doesn't look the same but the Patriots are still a dangerous team to contend with. We should see them get back on the winning track against the Bengals in Week 15.

  Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes having tests on hand    Mon Dec 9, 08:36 AM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (hand) is having tests done on his right hand Monday, Dec. 9, but he's believed to be OK.

Footballguys view: He had X-rays after the game, and there is optimism he'll play next week. It seems like just a precaution for the superstar quarterback. He should be good to go for a home game against the Broncos in Week 15.

  Giants | Daniel Jones out 2-4 weeks    Mon Dec 9, 08:31 AM

Updating previous reports, New York Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) is expected to miss two to four weeks with a high ankle sprain, according to sources.

Footballguys view: That sounds about right. High-ankle sprains are known to linger if not given enough time to heal. Eli Manning will start while Jones is out. There's a chance the rookie quarterback misses the rest of the regular season.

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold completed 20-of-36 passes for 270 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Week 14 game against the Miami Dolphins.

Footballguys view: Darnold had a solid result if you relied on him today, as the pass offense is revolving around Robby Anderson. Don't expect a good game Thursday night against Baltimore.

  Dolphins | Ryan Fitzpatrick throws for 245 yards    Sun Dec 8, 07:01 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 21-of-37 passes for 245 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Week 14 against the New York Jets and he ran seven times for a team-high 65 yards.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick wasn't a hit for fantasy because his offense settled for seven field goals. He also lost Devante Parker to a concussion. He'll still be a streamer consideration against the Giants next week if Parker is active.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston has small fracture    Sun Dec 8, 06:44 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (hand, wrist) has a small fracture in his wrist but was able to return to the Week 14 game, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Footballguys view: Winston was the best fantasy quarterback of the day while he played through the injury and should be in lineups against the Lions next week. He might even be playing himself into a next contract with Tampa next year.

  Vikings | Kirk Cousins throws for 242 yards, TD    Sun Dec 8, 06:41 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 24-of-30 passes for 242 yards, one touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 14 against the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: Cousins was efficient but didn't need to press the issue with the Vikings in control the whole way. If Adam Thielen can get back for next week's game against the Chargers, Cousins could be in streamer consideration.

  Falcons | Matt Ryan effective in winning effort    Sun Dec 8, 06:18 PM

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 20-for-34 passing for 313 yards, two touchdown and no interceptions vs. the Carolina Panthers in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8.

Footballguys view: Ryan was solid against the Panthers and a 93-yard pass play to Olamide Zaccheaus made his fantasy afternoon. Calvin Ridley got banged up and San Francisco is up next, so we might not go to Ryan in Week 15.

  Bills | Josh Allen finishes with 155 total yards    Sun Dec 8, 06:02 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen went 17-for-39 for 146 yards and one touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 14. He also rushed for nine yards on two carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Allen struggled against a good defense but did do enough to give his team a chance to tie or win late. Marcus Peters made an excellent pass breakup on fourth down to save the game. Allen's meager fantasy output will give us pause before recommending him against the Steelers next week.

  Lions | David Blough throws for 205 yards, TD    Sun Dec 8, 05:51 PM

Detroit Lions QB David Blough completed 24-of-40 passes for 205 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Week 14 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Footballguys view: Blough looked like a third-string quarterback in this one, but he gets the weak Bucs pass defense next week to get back on the QB2/Superflex radar if you're desperate.

  Panthers | Kyle Allen struggles in loss    Sun Dec 8, 05:50 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Kyle Allen completed 28-for-41 passing for 293 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions at the Atlanta Falcons in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8. He rushed for 24 yards on six carries and scored once. Allen lost one of two fumbles.

Footballguys view: Allen played terribly, but his numbers were ok. He'll probably have a similar outlook next week against the Seahawks unless the coaches put in Will Grier.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield has disappointing day    Sun Dec 8, 05:31 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield completed 11-of-24 passes for 192 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 14 against the Cincinnati Bengals. He salvaged the day somewhat with a rushing touchdown and 13 yards on the ground.

Footballguys view: Mayfield was a bust in a good matchup, but his rushing score kept it from being a complete loss for fantasy. He'll a potential streamer against the Cardinals next week.

  Ravens | Three touchdowns for Lamar Jackson    Sun Dec 8, 05:23 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson went 16-for-25 for 145 yards, three touchdowns and one interception against the Buffalo Bills in Week 14. He also rushed for 40 yards on 11 carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Nothing came easy for Jackson, but he was able to finish to Nick Boyle after the defense got a turnover, hit Hayden Hurst in stride, and find Willie Snead on a short score. This was a floor game with the Jets up next on Thursday. Lots of teams will be starting him in their fantasy playoff game.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers went 18-for-28 for 195 yards and one touchdown against the Washington Redskins in Week 14. He also rushed for 16 yards on five carries.

Footballguys view: Rodgers was a dud today as the Packers kept the offense on ice nursing a modest lead for the entire game. If you survived this fantasy quagmire, Rodgers will get the Bears next week.

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins went 16-for-27 for 170 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Green Bay Packers in Week 14.

Footballguys view: Haskins got a little banged up in this game, at times not putting weight on his ankle, but kept fighting and almost got his team back in this one. He'll face the Eagles next week.
