Bucs DT Gerald McCoy fears he suffered a torn biceps in the Week 14 loss to the Lions.

McCoy has torn his biceps twice already in his pro career, tearing the left one as a rookie and the right one the following year. He knows what it feels like, so we'll take his word on it. McCoy would certainly be lost for the remainder of the season against the Falcons, Panthers, and Saints the final three weeks. Tampa already has little defensive line talent, as McCoy is the only true difference maker up front for this woefully-bad defense.
Dec 10 - 10:40 PM

Coach Todd Bowles announced Josh McCown suffered a broken left (non-throwing) hand in the Week 14 loss to the Broncos.

McCown was banged up in this one, injuring his back in the second quarter before then hurting his left hand the next quarter. He'll undergo further tests to determine if he'll need surgery, and we'd imagine he will. McCown was in a cast after the game. The 38-year-old almost made it through the entire season but suffered his yearly injury before doing so. It's so tough for him, as McCown is a legitimate starter in this league but cannot sustain health. Bryce Petty is next man up for a Jets team that has far and away exceeded expectations under McCown's guidance.

Keelan Cole caught all three of his targets for 99 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Seahawks.

Cole reeled in a 75-yard touchdown on a beautiful catch and throw from Blake Bortles to give the Jaguars a 17-10 lead in the third quarter. It was the second time in as many weeks that Cole has scored. While those scores are nice, Cole hasn't had more than three catches in any of the five games since Allen Hurns was injured and Hurns is nearing a return to the lineup. Cole is a WR5 heading into a Week matchup with the Texans.
Dec 10 - 9:20 PM

Dede Westbrook caught 5-of-8 targets for 81 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Seahawks.

Westbrook's first NFL touchdown came on an 18-yard corner route to the right side of the field in which he split zone coverage. His eight targets led the team, the second time in three weeks that Westbrook has led the team in target opportunity. Westbrook's receiving yardage has now risen in each of his four games since being activated in Week 11 and he's had at least five receptions in each of his past three games. Westbrook will be on the table as a startable option in Week 15 against a Texans defense that has struggled to cover opposing wideouts on the season.
Dec 10 - 9:15 PM

Marqise Lee caught 5-of-6 targets for 65 yards in Sunday's Week 14 victory over the Seahawks.

Lee has turned into a solid floor play for fantasy as he has now had five or more catches in six of his past eight games. After catching a career-high 63 passes a year ago, Lee is already at 56 receptions with three games remaining on the season. With a Week 15 meeting with the Texans, Lee will be a solid WR3 option for fantasy owners.
Dec 10 - 9:10 PM

Austin Ekeler carried four times for 49 yards while catching 0-of-3 targets in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Redskins.

The majority of Ekeler's rushing yards came on a 33-yard rush to end the first half. Unfortunately for the Chargers, he was supposed to get down or out of bounds so that they could score points before time ran out. Ekeler remains a low-end flex option in PPR formats against the Chiefs in Week 15.
Dec 10 - 9:06 PM

Leonard Fournette rushed 24 times for 101 yards and a touchdown while adding 18 yards receiving on four catches in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Seahawks.

After rushing for 57 yards or fewer in three of his four games since returning form injury, Fournette's game against a tough rush defense was a welcome sight. Fournette did a lot of his damage after both Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright were lost for the game, but he picked up steam as the game wore on. He rushed for 45 yards in the third quarter and 39 yards in the fourth quarter after posting just 17 yards on the ground in the first half on five carries. Fournette's eighth rushing touchdown on the season came in the third quarter after a punt return down to the Seattle 1-yard line. A touch-machine as long as the Jaguars are playing with positive game script, Fournette will be set up to stack touches again next weekend at home against the Texans, whom he notched 124 yards from scrimmage against back in Week 1 when they were a much tougher defense.
Dec 10 - 9:03 PM

Blake Bortles completed 18-of-27 passes for 268 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Seahawks.

Bortles did his damage in the third quarter where he completed all four of his passes for 111 yards and two touchdowns. The first score was an 18-yard corner route to Dede Westbrook that put the Jaguars up 10-0. He then followed that up with an on-target rainbow to Keelan Cole for a 75-yard touchdown for his second touchdown of the quarter. After that, Bortles was only asked to protect the lead, throwing just six passes the rest of the way. Bortles has made himself a solid starting fantasy option, posting 16 or more points in six of his past seven games with three straight QB1 scoring weeks. With Houston and San Francisco left on his fantasy playoff schedule over the next two weeks, Bortles is set up for a strong finish to the fantasy season.
