Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 15.
This will be Pierre-Paul's third consecutive game missed. The Giants have taken steps back both in run and pass defense with JPP on the shelf.
Cecil Shorts (groin) is listed as questionable for Week 15.
Shorts will be a game-time decision against Buffalo, as previously announced by coach Gus Bradley. He'll be a dicey WR2/3 in fantasy semifinals week.
Maurice Jones-Drew (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Week 15.
Jordan Todman will get the start against Buffalo's bottom-ten run defense. MJD initially expressed hope he'd be able to play through his hamstring strain when injuring it two Thursday nights ago, but he's an aging player with piling-up workloads and a slower recovery period than earlier in his career. The Jaguars are very likely to struggle to generate offense in Week 15 against the Bills. Cecil Shorts (groin, questionable) is also beat up.
LaVon Brazill (foot) is listed as questionable for Week 15 despite not turning in a single practice this week.
He's shaping up as a game-time decision returning from a two-touchdown game against Cincinnati. Because Brazill is such a young player -- he's in his second year and missed the first four games 2013 due to suspension -- it's possible the Colts' coaching staff will hold him out Sunday simply because he didn't practice. Brazill, however, has been outwardly optimistic. We'd avoid leaning on Brazill in fantasy WR3 slots against Houston.
Garrett Graham (hamstring) remained sidelined at practice Friday.
Graham hasn't practiced at all this week and will be a game-time decision, per the Texans. It's a foggy situation. Owen Daniels (leg) has already been ruled out. If Graham can't go against the Colts, Ryan Griffin and Jake Byrne would handle tight end duties. Griffin was a draftnik-favorite in April.
Vincent Jackson (hamstring) is listed as probable for Week 15.
He's a boom-or-bust WR2 against San Francisco's top-four pass defense.
Falcons RB Antone Smith (knee) is out for Week 15.
Smith is a change-of-pace back and special teamer.
Willis McGahee (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 15 versus Chicago.
McGahee didn't practice at all this week after running into a brick wall named Brandon Spikes last Sunday. Coach Rob Chudzinski even hinted McGahee could be done for the season. Chris Ogbonnaya will draw the start in his place, with Fozzy Whittaker working in as a COP back. Ogbonnaya has RB2/flex appeal.
