Mohamed Sanu WR ATL (8) 4 hours ago
Sanu corralled six of eight targets, compiling 54 receiving yards during Sunday's 34-20 loss to Green Bay.
Sanu provided a signature performance Sunday in the Falcons trip to Lambeau Field, finishing right at his season average in receiving yardage (49 YPG), while logging between three and six receptions for the sixth straight game. He's merited consistent flex consideration in PPR formats, but a lack of downfield explosiveness and a seven-game scoring drought severely caps his relevance in standard scoring. Week 15 brings a matchup against a Cardinals defense that's been more than serviceable in containing opposing wideouts this year, allowing 12 touchdown catches and 1,889 receiving yards to the position (among NFL's 10 best teams in both categories).
OUTDominique Hatfield CB LAR (12) 4 hours ago
Hatfield (ankle) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Rams, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.
Hatfield was carted off the field after suffering an ankle injury on special teams. It's possible he may need to miss time.
Zach Ertz TE PHI (9) 4 hours ago
Ertz caught five passes (eight targets) for 38 yards in Sunday's 29-23 loss to the Cowboys.
Ertz turned in a rare clunker, finishing behind fellow tight end Dallas Goedert in both yards (44) and touchdowns (one) despite garnering three extra targets. The latter makes his presence felt at times, but Ertz is still clearly the top tight end in Philly and one of Carson Wentz's most-trusted targets. This one can simply be written off as a dud, and Ertz will look to bounce back against the Rams in Week 15. Los Angeles finally has both of their top corners, Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters, healthy on the field, so Ertz could be heavily involved in the gameplan if the Eagles choose to attack the middle.
OUTBryce Callahan CB CHI (5) 4 hours ago
Callahan (foot) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against Los Angeles, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.
The nature of Callahan's injury isn't clear. The slot cornerback was replaced by Sherrick McManis, who could take over in nickel and dime packages if Callahan is forced to miss time.
QSidney Jones CB PHI (9) 4 hours ago
Jones is playing through a hamstring injury and said he is "nowhere near 100 percent," John Clark of NBC Sports reports.
Jones has battled a hamstring injury since early October that prevented the cornerback from suiting up in five of the Eagles' last eight games. He was able to play through the pain to some extent Sunday, which offers hope he'll be able to do so again in Week 15. If not, Philly will need to rely on an uninspiring trio of Rasul Douglas, Cre'von LeBlanc and De'Vaunte Bausby at cornerback.
Alshon Jeffery WR PHI (9) 4 hours ago
Jefferey secured six of nine targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 29-23 loss to Dallas.
Carson Wentz didn't post gaudy yardage totals, so Jeffery's 50 yards and six receptions both led all Philadelphia receivers. The veteran's production had really slowed following his hot start to the year, as this was the first game in which he either recorded a touchdown or reached the 50-yard mark since Week 7. While this performance was a step back in the right direction, Jeffery will draw a tough assignment matched up against Aqib Talib in Week 15's matchup with the Rams.
C.J. Uzomah TE CIN (9) 4 hours ago
Uzomah recorded three receptions for 37 yards during Sunday's 26-21 loss to the Chargers.
The fourth-year man out of Auburn has been steady but unexplosive all year --seven times finishing between 30 and 55 receiving yards and never finishing with more than six receptions in a single week. Uzomah has provided a reliable floor for participants in PPR scoring (at least three receptions in five straight games), but with no more than 55 yards in a game and just two touchdowns all season, his upside is severely limited in standard formats. Week 15's matchup make him a start-worthy entity however, facing an Oakland defense that's allowed an NFL-high nine touchdown catches to opposing tight ends in 2018.
John Ross WR CIN (9) 5 hours ago
Ross corralled two of four targets, compiling 11 receiving yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 26-21 loss to the Chargers.
With six touchdowns on 18 receptions this season, the rate at which Ross is scoring is completely unsustainable. The league leaders in receiving touchdowns this season -- Davante Adams, Antonio Brown and Eric Ebron at 12 a piece -- score on a collective 15.3 percent of their receptions, while Ross has scored on 33 percent of his catches in 2018. Having battled through an injury-riddled rookie campaign in which he did not record a single catch in three games, it's encouraging to see the young Ross beginning to make his mark in the NFL by way of prolific scoring production. He's bound to slow down at some point, though that may not come in Week 15 with the Bengals hosting a Raiders defense that has allowed a league-high 31 passing touchdowns in 2018.
Ezekiel Elliott RB DAL (8) 5 hours ago
Elliott carried the ball 28 times for 113 yards, adding another 79 yards on 12 receptions (13 targets).
Elliott was unable to extend his touchdown streak to five games, but he still produced a strong fantasy line, especially for those in PPR formats. The 22-year-old has been used as a pass-catcher more this year than in either of his previous two seasons. Zeke isn't as dynamic of a receiver as some of the other pass-catching backs that have 50-plus receptions (i.e. Alvin Kamara, Christian McCaffrey, Tarik Cohen), as most of his catches come on more traditional swing and screen passes out of the backfield. Still, Dak Prescott seems to be forcing him the ball, and that volume combined with his strong rushing totals make Elliott one of the most-consistent top-end backs in fantasy. Expect another heavy workload against the Colts on Sunday.
Matt Prater K DET (6) 5 hours ago
Prater made his only field-goal attempt and both of his PATs during Sunday's 17-3 victory over Arizona.
The Lions easily won the defensive battle Sunday, but only marginally won the offensive battle while playing in an offense devoid of difference makers outside of receiver Kenny Golladay. In fact, Detroit's pick-six late in the third quarter was the only reason the Lions won by two scores. These struggles only allowed Prater one chance at a field goal, and it could be hard for the offense to afford the kicker more tries in a tougher matchup in Week 15 against the second-ranked Bills defense.
