Travis Kelce has played on 80.4 percent of the snaps the last two weeks.

Kelce's usage has quietly spiked recently even though Anthony Fasano has been healthy. Kelce ran a season-high 46 routes in Week 14 and backed that up by running 30 in Week 15 -- his third-highest mark of the season. Over the last month, Kelce is fantasy's No. 4 tight end and faces a Steelers defense burnable in every facet this week. He's clearly in play as a TE1 for both season-long and daily players.

Ravens signed LS Patrick Scales.

Scales replaces Kevin McDermott, who lands on IR due to an elbow injury. McDermott also blew a snap that cost the Ravens a field goal against the Jags in Week 15.

Jimmy Graham played on 65.2 percent of the snaps against the Bears in Week 15.

It's down from the 77.4 percent he played in Week 14. It was also extremely frustrating to see Graham not even on the field when No. 3 TE Josh Hill was the primary read on two goal-line plays and converted both for scores. Still, the shoulder clearly isn't an issue for Graham and he's run 78 pass routes the last two weeks. Fire him up as the no. 2 tight end play in Week 16 against the Falcons.

Broncos re-signed TE Dominique Jones.

We don't think this has anything to do with the status of Julius Thomas' ankle. It's likely a special teams move as the Broncos have been hit by injuries at linebacker this week.

Saints signed K Dustin Hopkins to their practice squad.

It's a strange move as NFL teams rarely waste practice squad spots on kickers. Although Shayne Graham missed a 51-yarder Monday night, he's still 19-of-22 on the year. We still like Graham as a solid fantasy kicking play at home against the Falcons Sunday as long as there's no funny business going on with Hopkins.

CBS' Jason La Canfora says "every expectation" is that Case Keenum will start Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Bill O'Brien isn't tipping his hand between Keenum and Thad Lewis. But Keenum makes more sense as he was with the team throughout the offseason program and training camp before losing his backup job to Tom Savage and Ryan Mallett. However, Keenum was brutal in four preseason games going 28-of-52 (53.8%) for 254 yards (4.88 YPA) with zero touchdowns and two interceptions, good for a 51.3 passer rating. He's not even a two-quarterback league option against a Ravens defense that can cover their secondary woes with a swarming front seven.

Eagles OLB Trent Cole has undergone left hand surgery and is out for Saturday's game against the Redskins.

Cole's status for Week 17 is unknown. It's a hit to the Eagles' depth on the edge, but replacement Brandon Graham is actually an upgrade. Cole, owed $10M in 2015, is likely in his final days as an Eagle.

The Indy Star suggests Reggie Wayne (triceps) might have his snap count reduced over the final two weeks of the regular season.

The Colts already backed off Wayne a bit in Weeks 14 and 15, playing him on just 75.6 percent of the snaps. Now they've clinched the AFC South and have almost no shot at a first-round bye. So resting Wayne in order to get him 100 percent for the Wild Card game makes plenty of sense. Donte Moncrief and Hakeem Nicks will have roles against the Cowboys Sunday, with Moncrief ticketed for far more snaps.
