The Cardinals believe Tyrann Mathieu suffered a torn left ACL in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Rams.
Eli Manning completed 20-of-32 passes for 259 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Giants' Week 14 loss to San Diego.
This was a truly abominal game in such a great matchup and such a great environment as sunny San Diego. Officially retaking the NFL interceptions lead from Geno Smith, Manning was picked for the 19th and 20th times this season, and the G-Men were dominated in time of possession as New York's offense failed to sustain drives. Manning will be no better than a low-ceiling QB2 when the Giants take on the Seahawks in Week 15.
Demaryius Thomas caught seven passes for 88 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Titans.
Thomas' touchdown came when he wasn't open initially from four yards out, but he broke down the back line of the end zone and Peyton Manning found him. Later, he caught another short touchdown pass but was deemed barely out of bounds. Demaryius now has either a touchdown or 100 yards in seven straight games and gets a dream matchup at home against the Chargers' league-worst corners on Thursday night. He's a dream to own as a WR1.
Rueben Randle managed 27 yards on two receptions in the Giants' Week 14 loss to the Chargers.
Randle has been a boom-or-bust fantasy option all season, who's generally paid dividends whenever NOT expected to, and turned in clunkers whenever it looked like he was headed for a big game. This one was a very favorable matchup against one of the poorest pass defenses in football, and Randle couldn't convert. He'll be a much better WR2/3 next year, when Hakeem Nicks leaves New York.
Eric Decker caught eight passes for 117 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Titans.
Decker's owners got a scare when Bernard Pollard lit him up with a legal hit (that was flagged anyway) in the second half. But it turned out that Decker merely got the wind knocked out of him and he was able to finish the game. Wes Welker (concussion) didn't finish the game, however, potentially opening up some more consistent targets for the outside receivers. Decker now has 16 catches for 291 yards and five touchdowns since he was held to a 1/5/0 line in Week 12. He's going to light up the Chargers' inept corners on Thursday night.
Brandon Myers caught four passes for 26 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 14 loss to the Chargers.
Myers has flukily now scored in three consecutive contests, though chasing those points won't be a recommended fantasy playoffs strategy in Week 15 against the Seahawks. Myers' performance in New York this season has been a disappointment. He is likely in his last few games with the organization.
Colin Kaepernick completed 15-of-29 passes for 175 yards, one touchdown and an interception San Francisco's 19-17, Week 14 win over the Seahawks, adding nine rushes for an additional 31 yards.
Kaepernick lacked for rhythm in the passing game, but came up with big plays when the 49ers needed them. His lone touchdown came on a third-and-goal late in the third quarter, where he ripped a bullet to a tightly covered Vernon Davis. Facing a late 3rd-and-7 on what would prove to be San Francisco's game-winning drive, Kaepernick also helped salt the game away with an eight-yard gain on a designed run. Kaep's pick was a forced pass to a tightly covered Michael Crabtree. San Francisco's pass catchers had trouble getting separation against Seattle's fiercely physical secondary. Kaep will be a mid-range QB2 on the road against the Bucs in Week 15.
Shane Vereen rushed three times for nine yards and one touchdown and caught 12 passes for 153 yards in the Patriots' Week 14 win over the Browns.
Vereen was a monster in the passing game, drawing a whopping 17 targets. After Rob Gronkowski suffered what's believed to be a torn ACL midway through the third quarter, Tom Brady leaned on Vereen heavily. On a late third-quarter touchdown drive, Vereen accounted for all 72 yards of offense on two catches and a six-yard scoring plunge. His big grab was a 50-yard connection down the left sideline in Craig Robertson's coverage. Vereen is going to draw a ton of targets with Gronkowski likely out for the rest of the season. The RB2 could push for RB1 numbers over the final three weeks. Start Vereen every week.
