Christian McCaffrey RB CAR (11) 2 hours ago
McCaffrey rushed eight times for 35 yards and caught three of four targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 31-24 win over the Vikings.
McCaffrey entered Sunday's contest with pretty good momentum, but a couple of factors combined to contribute toward his Week 13 dip. Not only was the rookie going against Minnesota's exceptional defense, but veteran Jonathan Stewart's 103-yard, three-touchdown performance meant he wasn't needed as much as usual. Fortunately for McCaffrey, a bounce-back outing could be in store, as an inferior Packers defense visits Carolina next Sunday.
Andrew Whitworth LA (8) 2 hours ago
Whitworth is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Eagles with an ankle injury, Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Whitworth was able to walk to the locker room under his own power, albeit with a slight limp. Darrell Williams should continue in his stead at left tackle if Whitworth is unable to return in the second half Sunday.
Tarik Cohen RB CHI (9) 2 hours ago
Cohen rushed 12 times for 80 yards and caught both his targets for five yards during Sunday's 33-7 win over Cincinnati.
After exploding out of the gate, Cohen has hit a midseason wall, as Sunday's 85 yards from scrimmage were his highest mark since Week 3. His role in the passing game has stagnated since rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky took over, and Jordan Howard is locked in as the early-down back. As a result, there just haven't been many opportunities for Cohen to translate his game-breaking potential into fantasy production. It's also likely too risky to rely on his work in the return game in most settings.
QByron Marshall RB WAS (5) 2 hours ago
Marshall (hamstring) will not return to Sunday's game against the Chargers.
Marshall was originally tabbed questionable to return before being downgraded to doubtful and eventually ruled out. LeShun Daniels is the only remaining running back for the Redskins behind starter Samaje Perine, who should continue to be the team's workhorse back.
QTaylor Lewan TEN (8) 2 hours ago
Lewan will not return to Sunday's game against the Cardinals with a back injury, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Lewan sustained the injury in the first half and was originally designated questionable to return, but was ruled out early in the second half. Dennis Kelly filled in at left tackle for Lewan earlier this season, and is likely to do once again.
Kendall Wright WR CHI (9) 2 hours ago
Wright caught 10 of 11 targets for 107 yards during Sunday's 33-7 win over Cincinnati.
After hauling in just six of 11 targets for 65 yards through the past three weeks, Wright's huge day came out of nowhere. While there is potential that rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky is turning the corner, it's probably best to keep fantasy expectations in check with Wright. He's still difficult to trust in the majority of settings considering his underwhelming production entering Week 14.
Marquise Goodwin WR SF (11) 2 hours ago
Godowin caught six of 12 targets for 106 yards in Sunday's 26-16 win over Houston.
Goodwin has been the biggest beneficiary of Jimmy Garoppolo's insertion under center, as the speedy wide receiver has compiled 14 catches for 205 yards in Garoppolo's two starts after snagging a combined 27 balls in his first 11 games this season. If he's still available on your waiver wire, teams in need of receiving help should give Goodwin serious consideration for the stretch run.
Giovani Bernard RB CIN (6) 2 hours ago
Bernard rushed 11 times for 62 yards and caught six of eight pass attempts for 68 yards in Sunday's 33-7 loss to the Bears.
As expected, Bernard was indeed the workhorse back with Joe Mixon out due to a concussion. The 26-year-old saw all but two of the Bengals' carries and was their second most-targeted receiver.He'll be in line for a similar role in Week 15 at Minnesota if Mixon is out again, although it ought to be a much tougher contest. The Vikings have allowed the second fewest rushing yards per game this season.
Orleans Darkwa RB NYG (8) 2 hours ago
Darkwa carried 10 times for 29 yards and caught two of three targets for an additional 15 yards during Sunday's 30-10 loss to the Cowboys.
Darkwa averaged an underwhelming 2.9 yards per carry despite what was a favorable matchup on paper, finishing with fewer than 33 rushing yards for the third straight game. He also watched as fellow back Wayne Gallman totaled 99 scrimmage yards on 19 touches and was heavily involved as the Giants played from behind. Given Darkwa's ineffectiveness and Gallman's emergence, the latter seems like the more desirable fantasy option heading into next week's matchup with the Eagles.
QThomas Hennessy NYJ (11) 2 hours ago
Hennessy (concussion) will not return to Sunday's game against the Broncos, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.
Hennessy exited earlier in the contest to be evaluated for a concussion. Tight end Eric Tomlinson has stepped in as the replacement long snapper for the Jets.
