No update yet on Aaron Rodgers’ Week 15 status

Injury HC: "This is a medical decision"

More Mike McCarthy on Aaron Rodgers: “In his mind, he’s ready to go if you watch him process. But this is a medical decision. Dr. McKenzie is in touch with a number of medical experts.” (ESPN – Rob Demovsky)

FF Today’s Take: Stay tuned. Rodgers reportedly underwent some exams Monday to see if a potential return is possible. Everything that needed to happen for the Packers over the last few weeks has fallen into place and Rodgers is eligible to return in Week 15, so clearance from the Packers’ typically conservative medical staff would seem to be all he needs to return against the Panthers. It would be surprising at this point if Rodgers doesn’t play.

Alvin Kamara expects to return for Week 15

Injury Suffered concussion in Week 14

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (concussion) said he expects to be good to go for next Sunday. (New Orleans Times-Picayune)

FF Today’s Take: The decision to return is obviously not only his to make, but this is one situation in which owners are lucky he played on Thursday, as it gives him a few more days to clear the league’s protocol. Expect him to be limited in practice this week and listed as questionable on the injury report, but it is reasonable to expect him to return to fantasy RB1 status in Week 15 against the Jets.

Josh McCown done for the season

Injury Broken left hand

Josh McCown (hand) is out for the season, Bowles said. McCown needs surgery. (New York Post – Brian Costello)

FF Today’s Take: McCown has been the engine that has powered the Jets’ surprising offense this season. The falloff from him to Bryce Petty is substantial, and it means players like Jermaine Kearse and Austin Seferian-Jenkins go from every-week starters in some leagues to bench options. Robby Anderson excelled last year with Petty, so perhaps he can remain a viable back-end starting option in fantasy.

ACL tear confirmed for Carson Wentz

Injury Nick Foles will start for Eagles

MRI showed that Eagles’ QB and NFL MVP candidate Carson Wentz did tear his ACL. Wentz is our for season. Nick Foles time. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FF Today’s Take: Wentz was having a magnificent season ranking as a top five fantasy quarterback through 13 weeks. The Eagles will move forward with Nick Foles with the Giants, Raiders and Cowboys still remaining on the regular season schedule. Foles will be streaming option in Week 15 against a Giants team that’s given up the most fantasy points to quarterbacks.

Chris Hogan good to go for Monday night

Injury Pats receiver hasn't played since Week 8

Patriots’ WR Chris Hogan, who has missed the last four games with a shoulder injury, will play tonight vs. Miami Dolphins, per league source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FF Today’s Take: Hogan has been out since suffering a shoulder injury in Week 8. With Rob Gronkowski missing this game due to suspension, Hogan has a decent chance to return WR3/Flex value against the Dolphins.

Savage suffers concussion, Yates to start

Injury Yates to face Jaguars in Week 15

Bill O’Brien believes QB T.J. Yates will start Sunday against the Jaguars. (Houston Texans on Twitter)

FF Today’s Take: Tom Savage left Week 14 with a concussion and isn’t expected to play Week 15. Yates gets a brutal matchup against the Jaguars leaving DeAndre Hopkins owners a difficult decision in fantasy playoff time. The Jaguars have given up the fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks and wide receivers.

Bryce Petty will start if McCown can’t go

Injury Jets QB suffers hand injury in Week 14

Coach Todd Bowles said Bryce Petty will be the starter if additional tests on McCown’s hand confirm that it is too risky for him to play — and that’s the right call. Petty is the No. 2 quarterback and is entitled to be the Next Man Up, but that doesn’t mean the Jets can’t use Hackenberg off the bench if an opportunity presents itself. (ESPN)

FF Today’s Take: The Jets got blanked by the Broncos yesterday and to make matters worse, quarterback Josh McCown fractured his hand. If he sits, Petty will likely get the start in Week 15 against the Saints. Christian Hackenberg could see some action over the next three weeks as well.

Amari Cooper is active, could be limited

Injury Sprained ankle

Now being told Raiders WR Amari Cooper will be ACTIVE for today’s game vs the Chiefs. As mentioned earlier, the expectation is that his snaps will be limited. “Pitch count,” so to speak. As of Friday morning, coaches were planning to be without Cooper. He pushed to play. (Dan Graziano on Twitter)

FF Today’s Take: It will be tough for fantasy owners to feel comfortable trusting Cooper today even in a great matchup. Michael Crabtree is in a good spot and Cordarrelle Patterson has some sneaky appeal if you need a desperate long shot.

Sterling Shepard is active

Injury Hamstring injury

Giants WR Sterling Shepard looks to me like a guy who’s playing. He’s out here warming up in cleats, cutting and running, singing along to what’s on his headphones. No trainer watching him. (ESPN)

FF Today’s Take: There were some conflicting reports this morning regarding Shephard’s status. He is active and expected to play despite a hamstring injury.

Ameer Abdullah expected to sit

Injury Because of poor play, not injury reasons

#Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck, questionable) is not expected to play today, source said, though it’s more for play than injury reasons. Detroit is trying other players to improve the run game. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FF Today’s Take: With Abdullah out of favor, expect Tion Green and Theo Riddick to handle the running back workload with Green getting most of his work on early-downs. Green posted an 11-51-1 line against the Ravens last week.

Bills expected to start Nathan Peterman at QB

Injury Knee injury for Tyrod Taylor

Buffalo is expected to start rookie QB Nathan Peterman vs Colts with QB Tyrod Taylor questionable with a knee injury, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FF Today’s Take: Peterman took the majority of reps in practice this week so this doesn’t come as a surprise. Peterman was a disaster in his last start against the Chargers, throwing 5 INTs in the first half. Kelvin Benjamin, Zay Jones and TE Charles Clay are not desirable fantasy options.

Zach Ertz considered doubtful

Injury Team will evaluate him today

Eagles still want to look at TE Zach Ertz and his concussion on Sunday, but he is considered doubtful for game vs. Rams even though he is listed as questionable, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FF Today’s Take: If Ertz sits, Brent Celek and Trey Burton will fill in at tight end. Burton is the better receiving option the more viable fantasy play. He’d be a low-end TE1 option against the Rams.
