RG3 expected to start Week 16

Fantasy Football Today - Mon, 12/15/2014 - 13:20

Colt McCoy (neck) likely to be inactive

FF Today's Take: Not that it will matter to most owners playing in their league's championship games, but Griffin looked as good as he has all season in Week 15 versus the Giants. The third-year quarterback completed 66.7 percent of his passes for 236 yards and a touchdown while running for 46 more yards. Were it not for a highly questionable fumble call in the end zone, RG3 could have also added a rushing score. However, with Washington's offensive line protecting poorly, he could be in for a long day on Saturday against the Eagles.

C.J. Spiller activated off IR/designated to return

Fantasy Football Today - Mon, 12/15/2014 - 13:15

Readiness for Week 16 will be determined in practice

Bills HC Doug Marrone: C.J. Spiller (clavicle) is cleared to return and will be added to the active roster. His readiness for return will be gauged this week. (Buffalo Bills on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Even though the Bills are fighting for a playoff spot, it seems unlikely that Spiller will see much - if any - action in Week 16 after missing the previous seven games. Expect another heavy workload for Fred Jackson for at least one more week, with Bryce Brown, Anthony Dixon and maybe Spiller pitching in against Oakland.

Bills activate Spiller

Draft Sharks - Mon, 12/15/2014 - 12:47

The Bills on Monday activated RB C.J. Spiller from IR/designated to return. That means Spiller could play against Oakland on Sunday if the team wants to use him. It's tough to imagine Buffalo giving Spiller much of a workload, considering how shaky his usage was before the injury. Spiller doesn't look like anything more than a low-price DFS flier the rest of the way.

Seferian-Jenkins done for the year

Draft Sharks - Mon, 12/15/2014 - 12:39

The Bucs have placed TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins on IR with the back injury that has kept him out since Week 12. The injury is not believed to be serious, in terms of affecting him into next year. So we'll keep an eye on a situation that could turn the tall rookie into a top-15 draft target among TEs next summer.

RG3 to start

Draft Sharks - Mon, 12/15/2014 - 12:36

Washington HC Jay Gruden said today that QB Robert Griffin III will start Saturday's game against the Eagles. Colt McCoy is expected to miss the game because of the neck injury that knocked him out of Week 15's loss to the Giants. Griffin took 7 sacks and lost a key fumble after taking over for McCoy but also threw for 236 yards and a TD and ran for a season-high 46 yards. You'd have to be in bad shape to use RG3 in a season-long fantasy lineup next weekend, but his matchup with the Eagles could mean some sneaky value in tournaments on daily fantasy sports sites.

McCoy done for season

Draft Sharks - Mon, 12/15/2014 - 12:19

The Bucs placed DT Gerald McCoy on IR Monday after he suffered a knee sprain in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. McCoy reportedly won't need surgery on the joint, which should mean that he'll be fine for a normal offseason once things really get going in March.

Murray has broken hand

Draft Sharks - Mon, 12/15/2014 - 11:38

Cowboys VP Stephen Jones revealed on his Monday radio show that RB DeMarco Murray broke a bone in his hand in Sunday night's win over the Eagles. Murray reportedly needs surgery but "hopes he can play" against the Colts this weekend. We'd consider him very questionable. Stay tuned for updates, but Murray owners need to be making other plans for Week 16. If Murray is out, we'd expect RB Joseph Randle to lead the backfield in carries, with RB Lance Dunbar seeing a bunch of work in passing situations.

Bortles has mid-foot sprain

Draft Sharks - Mon, 12/15/2014 - 11:28

Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has a mid-foot sprain.  HC Gus Bradley labeled the rookie "questionable" for Thursday night's game against the Titans, but we'd be surprised if Jacksonville threw him out there at less than 100%.  Look for QB Chad Henne to get the start.  The Jags' entire passing game is best avoided in Week 16 fantasy lineups.

Lindley will start Week 16

Draft Sharks - Mon, 12/15/2014 - 11:26

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians announced on Monday that QB Ryan Lindley will start Sunday's game against the Seahawks.  Arians added, though, that he'll have a "package" for the athletic Logan Thomas.  It's obviously a QB situation to stay far, far away from in Week 16 fantasy lineups.  Even WR Larry Fitzgerald will be a shaky bet.

Marshall has mid-foot sprain

Draft Sharks - Mon, 12/15/2014 - 10:45

Broncos LB Brandon Marshall reportedly suffered a mid-foot sprain in Sunday's game against the Chargers. The team has not announced an expected timeline for his recovery, but you should plan to not have Marshall available for your IDP lineup this weekend. Teammate Danny Trevathan also hurt his already twice-injured knee in the game, so we'll see if he'll even be available to fill in. You'll be best off looking elsewhere for Week 16 help, though.

Foles still not cleared

Draft Sharks - Mon, 12/15/2014 - 10:27

Eagles HC Chip Kelly announced Monday that QB Nick Foles (collarbone) has still not received full medical clearance.  His status has taken on added importance with QB Mark Sanchez struggling.  Foles is out at least for Week 16, though.  Sanchez will be a risk/reward fantasy play in a prime matchup against the Redskins.

DeMarco Murray to have surgery on broken hand

Fantasy Football Today - Mon, 12/15/2014 - 10:25

Hasn't been ruled out for Week 16 yet

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray broke a bone in his hand and will have surgery on Monday, according to COO Stephen Jones. He has not been ruled out for Sunday's game against Indianapolis. "Obviously, DeMarco Murray has a broken bone in his hand. At the same time, he hasn't been ruled out," said Jones with the G-Bag Nation on 105.3 The Fan. "It's not something that if it responds well after surgery today, that he can't come back and play this weekend. It's probably a tough expectation to think that he can, but we'll see." (CBS DFW)

FF Today's Take: Bad news obviously for Murray owners as the Dallas RB is having a career year and a cornerstone for teams still in the playoffs. His availability for Week 16 will be determined later this week. Joseph Randle would likely be the starter if Murray sits with Lance Dunbar being used on passing downs.

Thomas limited in Week 15

Draft Sharks - Mon, 12/15/2014 - 08:34

Broncos TE Julius Thomas was on the field for just 29 of 66 offensive snaps against the Chargers on Sunday.  That 44% snap rate is well below the 90-95% he was playing early in the season.  That ankle is obviously still an issue.  Thomas finished Week 15 with just 1 catch for 30 yards on 2 targets.  We'll monitor his practice participation this week, but he'll be a risk/reward fantasy starter for Week 16.

Manziel will start Week 16

Draft Sharks - Mon, 12/15/2014 - 07:02

Browns HC Mike Pettine said after Sunday's loss that QB Johnny Manziel will remain the starter for Week 16.  It wasn't a given after Manziel absolutely bombed against the Bengals.  The rookie completed 10 of 18 passes for 80 yards, 0 TDs and 2 INTs.  His 1.0 QBR was the worst by any player in his 1st start since ESPN debuted the stat in 2006.  Manziel gets an easier matchup this weekend against the Panthers, but he'd be tough to trust even in 2-QB leagues and daily games.

Texans bring back Keenum

Draft Sharks - Mon, 12/15/2014 - 06:25

The Texans will sign QB Case Keenum, according to insider John McClain.  QB Ryan Fitzpatrick broke his leg in yesterday's loss to the Colts, and QB Tom Savage suffered a knee injury that might keep him out the final 2 weeks.  Keenum started 8 games for Houston last year, completing 54.2% of his passes with 9 TDs and 6 INTs. He was with the team this offseason, so he has some familiarity with the offense.  Keenum looks like the favorite to start against the Ravens this weekend.  He's not a fantasy option, but he's serviceable enough to keep WRs DeAndre Hopkins and Andre Johnson (assuming he's cleared from his concussion) in starter territory.

Broncos lose 2 LBs to injury

Draft Sharks - Mon, 12/15/2014 - 06:23

Broncos LBs Brandon Marshall and Danny Trevathan each left Sunday's game at San Diego early with injuries. Marshall hurt his right foot and left the stadium in a walking boot. X-rays came back negative, but he's due for a Monday MRI. Trevathan left favoring the same left knee area he has already injured 2 separate times this year. "It felt like it got hyperextended," Trevathan told The Denver Post. "I feel good, though. Not the same as I did when I hurt it before." He'll have an MRI on Monday as well. We'll see what the damage is on both players after those results come in. Marshall would be a significant loss for IDP owners heading into their league finals next weekend.

Broncos not concerned about Manning's thigh

Draft Sharks - Mon, 12/15/2014 - 06:09

It was a tough day at the office for Broncos QB Peyton Manning yesterday.  He was up all night on Saturday battling the flu and needed an IV before the game.  Then he injured his thigh late in the 1st half.  Manning missed the final series of the half but return for the 2nd.  Pro Football Talk hears that Denver has "no lingering concern" about the thigh injury.  The team believes it was related to dehydration caused by Manning's illness.  We'll keep an eye on him this week, but #18 should be fine for next Monday night's game against the Bengals.

Charles was bothered by ankle

Draft Sharks - Sun, 12/14/2014 - 19:55

Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles admitted that his bum ankle was an issue in Sunday's game against the Raiders.  He finished with 53 yards on 13 touches, while RB Knile Davis racked up 10 touches for 81 yards and 2 TDs.  "I just need to get off of it and ice it and everything would [be all] right," Charles said. "It was still tender."  We'll monitor Charles' status this coming week, but he should be fine for Sunday's game against the Steelers.  And if he's active, he needs to be in fantasy lineups.

Hyde injured back, not ankle

Draft Sharks - Sun, 12/14/2014 - 19:43

49ers RB Carlos Hyde told reporters after Sunday's loss that he injured his back, not his ankle, when he was tackled awkwardly in the 3rd quarter.  He's scheduled for additional testing tomorrow.  With RB Frank Gore dealing with a concussion, San Francisco's backfield is in flux heading toward Saturday night's game against the Chargers.
