Spencer Ware rushed 20 times for 56 yards in the Chiefs' Week 14 win over the Raiders, adding a seven-yard reception.

Ware's slump continues. It was a complete no-show against a Raiders run defense that entered the evening allowing 4.9 yards per carry. The Raiders had permitted 15 ground scores in 12 games. Ware is now averaging 3.20 yards per carry over his past four games, with his YPC falling each of the past four weeks. It's fair to wonder if he's hitting a wall because of his heavy usage. Ware got vultured this evening by Charcandrick West, who could get more involved for the stretch run. Ware will be a RB2 against the Titans in Week 15.

Chiefs ILB Derrick Johnson has been diagnosed with a ruptured left Achilles' tendon, and is done for the season.

Johnson knew it the second he went down in non-contact fashion in the first half. Coach Andy Reid simply called it a "sad deal." Reid couldn't be more right, as the 34-year-old linebacker was having another solid year as an every-down player after tearing his right Achilles' tendon in 2014. The Chiefs still have a loaded defense for the stretch run, but were already having problems up the gut against the run. This won't help. As for Johnson, it's fair to say his career is now in doubt. He's due $4.75 million in 2017, but probably won't be back at that price, and likely won't be ready for Week 1.
Dec 9 - 12:13 AM

Latavius Murray rushed 22 times for 103 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' Week 14 loss to the Chiefs.

The 100-yard rushing effort was just Murray's second of the season. He should have gotten the ball 30 times, as he was the Raiders' only means of moving the ball on a frigid evening in Kansas City. Fantasy owners will take it all the same. The score was Murray's 12th of the year, and fourth in three games. He's finally re-established himself as the Raiders' bell-cow, and is primed for a big finish to the season. The Chargers are not an imposing Week 15 matchup.
Dec 9 - 12:09 AM

Travis Kelce caught 5-of-8 targets for 101 yards in the Chiefs' Week 14 win over the Raiders.

The 100-yard effort was Kelce's fourth straight, and fifth in seven games. Like he's done for the entirety of his hot streak, Kelce was gashing the defense for huge gains up the seam. Kelce could have had an even bigger game had Alex Smith not gone into witness protection after halftime. Most encouragingly, the big night came with Jeremy Maclin back in the lineup. Kelce will be a top-three tight end for next week's home matchup with the Titans.
Dec 9 - 12:01 AM

Amari Cooper caught 5-of-10 targets for 29 yards in the Raiders' Week 14 loss to the Chiefs.

This is a game the second-year wideout would like to have back. Cooper caught two extremely lucky breaks in the first half. A should-have-been fumble was ruled an incomplete pass, and Cooper's offensive pass interference in the end zone was called defensive pass interference. His luck ran out after the break, as he committed one of the most baffling non-catches in recent memory. With Derek Carr scrambling out of the pocket to deliver a nearly-perfect deep strike, Cooper somehow lost the ball in flight. It was an inexcusable play, one that cost the Raiders a 72-yard touchdown. Cooper keeps inventing new ways not to score. He's now been held below 60 yards in five straight games, and below 30 in 2-of-3. The Chargers aren't a stay-away matchup for Week 15, but Cooper is a volatile fantasy option right now.

Alex Smith completed 17-of-26 passes for 264 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Chiefs' 21-13, Week 14 win over the Raiders.

Even by Smith's standards, it was a deeply bizarre performance. Smith played like 2011 Aaron Rodgers in the first half, completing 11-of-16 passes for 203 yards and his score. He was legitimately gunslinging, and taking accurate shots deep. It was like he was a completely new quarterback. The switch flipped at halftime. He was picked on an awful throw on his second attempt of the third quarter, and lost a fumble to begin Kansas City's next drive. The game was an atrocious slog from there on out. Despite the rough half, Smith has been playing legitimately better of late thanks to Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill. He'll be a decent QB2 against the Titans in Week 15.
Dec 8 - 11:48 PM

Derek Carr completed 17-of-41 passes for 117 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Raiders' 21-13, Week 14 loss to the Chiefs.

At least for one week, the MVP talk will be put on ice. Carr's 2.85 yards per attempt was the second lowest in NFL history for a quarterback attempting at least 40 passes. With the temperature checking in at "frigid plains," Carr was noticeably bothered by his pinkie injury. He flat missed throws all evening. This being the Raiders, however, he was also hurt by a number of awful drops/misconnections, none worse than Amari Cooper's baffling inability to haul in a would-be 72-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. It's a score that would have changed the game, and kept Carr out of the history books. With his finger an issue, the Raiders' 10-day break couldn't be coming at a better time. Carr has a get-right Week 15 matchup in the Chargers.

49ers LT Joe Staley is dealing with a hamstring injury.

Staley injured his hamstring in Wednesday's practice, and missed Thursday's session. In the midst of his age-32 season, Staley hasn't missed a game since 2010.
