Jonathan Dwyer is now the Steelers' starting running back.

It's a change from last week, when Rashard Mendenhall was on top of the depth chart and started the loss to the Browns. Of course, Mendy fumbled twice in that game, ran poorly on his four carries and was benched. Dwyer fumbled once, but hit the hole harder and appeared to have more burst. Now Isaac Redman is listed second. We wouldn't trust anyone in this backfield, but Dwyer is the best bet for owners as he'll get the first crack at a "hot hand" against the Ravens Sunday. Per coach Mike Tomlin, the switch has been made because Dwyer has consistently been the most productive guy. He has averaged a healthy 4.37 YPC on his 98 totes this season and posted back-to-back 100-yard games as the feature back in Weeks 7 and 8.

Nick Foles completed 24-of-38 passes for 237 yards and four touchdowns in the Eagles' Week 15 win over the Giants.

Dec 17 - 4:48 PM

Greg Olsen caught 9-of-12 targets for 116 yards and a touchdown in the Panthers' Week 15 win over the Packers.

Dec 17 - 4:44 PM

DeAndre Hopkins caught 4-of-13 targets for 80 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' Week 15 loss to the Jaguars.

Hopkins' fantasy owners should feel fortunate they emerged with this good a stat line from Hopkins, whom Jalen Ramsey held to ten yards on four targets in the first half. With the Texans down 31-7 early in the third quarter, Hopkins dominated a singular drive, beating Ramsey twice for big plays including his score. Hopkins will have an easier road in Week 16 against a struggling Steelers secondary.

LeSean McCoy had 20 carries for 50 yards and a touchdown and caught 4-of-5 passes for 46 yards and a touchown in Week 15 against Miami

The stats aren't huge, but McCoy was Buffalo's entire offense. He may not have been fully healthy coming off 32 carries and missing practice time with a knee injury this week. McCoy scored a four-yard touchdown on Buffalo's opening drive and was left wide open on a 16-yard pass from the slot for his receiving TD. He went over 10,000 career yards and now ranks 29th in all-time rushing. McCoy will remain a must-start for Week 16 against the Patriots.

Christian McCaffrey caught 6-of-7 targets for 73 yards and a touchdown in the Panthers' Week 15 win over the Packers, adding 12 carries for 63 additional yards.

McCaffrey's 136 yards from scrimmage were a new career high. 60 of them came on the Panthers' opening drive, where McCaffrey caught four passes for 40 yards and his touchdown. Greg Olsen took over after that, but McCaffrey had already given fantasy owners what they needed. Up to 73 catches on the season, McCaffrey has a plus Week 16 matchup in the Bucs.
Dec 17 - 4:29 PM

Cam Newton completed 20-of-31 passes for 242 yards, four touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Panthers' 31-24, Week 15 win over the Packers, adding 14 rushes for 58 additional yards.

It was the second time this season Newton posted four passing scores. Newton seemed revitalized by finally having a healthy Greg Olsen. 12 of Newton's 31 attempts were sent Olsen's way, with the tight end generating 116 yards. Newton also did an excellent job of moving the sticks with his legs, consistently finding the soft spots in Dom Capers' defense. He's cleared 50 yards rushing in three straight games. Newton has a Week 16 smash spot in the Bucs.
Dec 17 - 4:28 PM

Drew Brees completed 26-of-36 passes for 285 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in the Saints' Week 15 win over the Jets.

Brees came out of the gate hot in this one, completing nine of his first 11 passes for 114 yards to help the Saints jump out to a quick 10-0 lead. He did not slow down in the second quarter, escaping pressure to find Alvin Kamara for a 29-yard gain and hitting the running back again for a 10-yard score late in the drive. Leonard Williams made a great play to snag Brees' only interception just before the half, however, and that play seemed to stun the offense. Brees looked like he got back on track with a great throw to Michael Thomas in the back of the end zone in the third quarter, but Thomas was ruled out. Brees went right back to Thomas on the next drive, and the receiver paid off his confidence with four catches for 50 yards including the touchdown which sealed the game despite a late comeback attempt by the Jets. Brees has not thrown for three scores since Week 3, but he will remain a back-end QB1 next week against the Falcons.
Dec 17 - 4:25 PM

Chris Ivory rushed 17 times for 42 yards in the Jaguars' Week 15 win over the Texans.

Ivory operated as the Jaguars’ primary back when the game was in doubt, but he lost carries to T.J. Yeldon due to ineffectiveness and didn’t play late in the blowout, as Corey Grant mopped up the pieces. With Leonard Fournette (quad, ankle) due back for Week 16 against the 49ers, Ivory will return to backup duties.
Dec 17 - 4:22 PM

Dede Westbrook caught 2-of-2 targets for 21 yards in the Jaguars' Week 15 win over the Texans.

Whereas Jaydon Mickens and Keelan Cole both went off after Marqise Lee’s (ankle) early exit, Westbrook dudded but helped his teammates. He drew a first-half pass-interference flag and another first-half holding penalty in the end zone, both of which turned into touchdowns for the Jags. Expect Westbrook to bounce back in Week 16 against the 49ers. With Lee seemingly unlikely to return anytime soon, Westbrook should close out the season as the Jaguars’ No. 1 wideout.
Dec 17 - 4:21 PM

Joe Flacco completed 26-of-42 passes for 288 yards and touchdown with three yards and a touchdown rushing in Sunday's Week 15 win over the Browns.

The 288 passing yards were the most that Flacco has had in a game this season. He got the scoring started for the Ravens with a 2-yard rushing touchdown in the second quarter. He followed that up with a 33-yard touchdown pass to Ben Watson on the following drive to put the Ravens up 17-7 and they never looked back. Flacco has now had 16 or more points in three straight games while running into an extremely positive matchup next week at home against the Colts. Flacco will be on the streaming radar in Week 16.
Dec 17 - 4:19 PM

Keelan Cole caught 7-of-9 targets for 186 yards and a touchdown in the Jaguars' Week 15 win over the Texans.

The Jaguars’ slot receiver has flashed on previous opportunities this season. He delivered in a big way on Sunday as Marqise Lee exited with a first-quarter ankle injury that appeared severe, slicing and dicing the Texans’ porous pass defense every which way. Cole scored a red-zone touchdown and also caught a 42-yard gain on a gorgeous back-foot throw by Blake Bortles. Cole has earned WR3 consideration for Week 16 in another plus draw against the 49ers.
