Speaking after Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, coach Mike Shanahan refused to name a starting quarterback for Week 15 against the Falcons.
Robert Griffin III was yanked from the blowout loss to Kansas City in the fourth quarter after completing 12-of-26 passes for 164 yards, one score, and one pick. Kirk Cousins came on in relief and was equally unimpressive, going 7-of-16 for 59 yards. "We'll talk about that later," Shanahan said. "We'll look at where we are and what direction we're going." RGIII said there's no doubt he'll be the guy under center next week. We'd probably agree, but Shanahan and Griffin's relationship is already under the microscope.
Wes Welker (concussion) will undergo baseline testing Monday.
Welker has to be considered extremely doubtful for Thursday's game against the Chargers. Players almost always struggle to get through the concussion protocols on short weeks, but Welker's case is complicated because he's now sustained two concussions in the last month. Owners need to be making other plans while noting that Jacob Tamme filled in as the slot man against the Titans after Welker left.
Andre Roberts caught one pass for eight yards in Week 14 versus St. Louis.
Roberts was targeted just twice. He's no higher than the fifth option in the passing game. Roberts is waiver wire fodder for the fantasy playoffs.
Michael Floyd caught two passes for 26 yards in Week 14 against the Rams.
Floyd was targeted five times on the day, with a pair coming in the end zone. He just couldn't make the plays, but his afternoon could have obviously been much bigger. Floyd left the game late with the Cardinals up large after he took a hit to the head from a Rams safety. The Cardinals made no injury announcement, so it may be nothing. Floyd will be a WR3 in Tennessee next week.
Chris Givens caught one pass for 21 yards in Week 14 against Arizona.
Givens was locked up in Patrick Peterson's coverage all afternoon and saw just two targets. Add that to playing with an inept Kellen Clemens as his quarterback, and Givens never had a chance. He's been a huge disappointment as a sophomore. Givens is barely a WR5. He hasn't scored this season.
Rob Housler caught three passes for 42 yards in Week 14 against the Rams.
Housler was limited by a hip injury late in the practice week but gave it a go on Sunday and finished second on the team in receiving. He's improved over the course of the season, but Housler is merely a TE2 for fantasy purposes.
Stedman Bailey caught three passes for 46 yards in Week 14 at Arizona.
One week after playing a season-high 22 offensive snaps, Bailey drew the start opposite Chris Givens. As ESPN Rams blogger Nick Wagoner mentioned during the game, it's clear that Bailey has the most reliable hands on the team and is arguably the best route runner. The rookie will continue to see increased snaps over the final three weeks. Bailey does his work in the intermediate passing game.
Kenny Britt was a healthy scratch in Sunday's Week 14 loss at Denver.
Britt has hit rock bottom, not even dressing as practice squad WR Michael Preston got the nod. The former first-round pick in the final year of his contract has eight catches on the season.
