Nick Foles suffered a broken hand in the Eagles' Week 16 loss to the Redskins, and will be unavailable for Sunday's finale.

Foles suffered a hairline fracture that was only apparent after an MRI. He played through the injury for a chunk of Sunday's loss, but with the Eagles only playing for pride this week, there's no reason to push their rookie signal caller. Foles is expected to need only three weeks to recover. Coach Andy Reid has announced Michael Vick — who was a healthy scratch for Week 16 — will start in his absence. Thrown into the fire as a third-round rookie, Foles has had his share of struggles this season, but performed better than should have been reasonably expected. He'll finish with a 6:5 TD:INT ratio over 265 passes, and two 300-yard performances in his final three starts. Although his 60.8 completion percentage and 79.1 QB rating are hardly stellar, they're still solid for a rookie. Unless Philadelphia hires read-option maven Chip Kelly, the smart money is on Foles being the Eagles quarterback in 2013.

Julian Edelman caught 8-of-12 targets for 101 yards in the Patriots' Week 13 win over the Rams.

The Patriots attacked the Rams with a ball-out-quick passing game in order to mitigate the impact of Los Angeles' talented defensive line. The Pats also put double and triple teams on DT Aaron Donald. Edelman took over as the focal point of this offensive approach and was no match for Lamarcus Joyner in the slot. Edelman has earned every-week WR1 treament heading into a Week 14 date with the Ravens on Monday Night Football.

Dion Lewis rushed five times for 27 yards and caught 4-of-5 targets for 11 yards in the Patriots' Week 13 win over the Rams.

LeGarrette Blount (18) led New England's backfield in touches, while Lewis (9) and James White (7) continued to share passing-back duties. The Patriots used a lot of Lewis early in game, then put him on bubble wrap the rest of the way in an easy win. We'd project Lewis for 9-11 touches in Week 14 against Baltimore. Lewis will be a low-end flex option in that Monday night game.
Dec 4 - 4:28 PM

Drew Brees completed 31-of-44 passes for 326 yards, zero touchdowns and three interceptions in New Orleans' 28-13, Week 13 loss to the Lions.

It was Brees' first touchdown-less game at home since Week 4, 2009, a span of 60 games. It was an inconceivable outcome considering his 2016 play and weak opponent. Brees may have been playing through an injury, as his deep passes were wobbling much more than usual. He lacked his usual drive. Provided everything is alright physically, Brees will bounce back as a mid-range QB1 for next week's trip to Tampa.
Dec 4 - 4:25 PM

Jeremy Hill rushed 23 times for 33 yards and one touchdown in the Bengals' Week 13 win over the Eagles.

He added two catches for 12 yards on three targets. The one-yard touchdown run after a 50-yard catch by Cody Core definitely saved Hill's fantasy day, though it can be viewed as a big positive that he received 25 total touches. In the two games without Gio Bernard and A.J. Green, Hill has handled 43 total touches as one of the focal points of the offense. Unfortunately, he's faced two strong run defenses. Hill will get a much better matchup Week 14 at the hapless Browns.
Dec 4 - 4:24 PM

Malcolm Mitchell caught 8-of-10 targets for 82 yards in the Patriots' Week 13 win over the Rams.

Mitchell took over as a near-full-time player in this one, playing in three-receiver packages alongside Julian Edelman and Chris Hogan. Mitchell clearly has the trust of Tom Brady, who is engineering a high-volume, ball-out-quick passing attack that suits all of his receivers' skill sets. Mitchell has earned every-week WR3 treatment entering a Week 14 date with Baltimore.
Dec 4 - 4:23 PM

Jordy Nelson caught 8-of-10 targets for 118 yards and a touchdown Week 13 against the Texans.

Nelson was the focal point of the passing game all day. With the offense focusing on short passes early, Nelson racked up five catches for 37 yards in the first half, but he got it going down the field after the break. His first long catch was a 32-yard touchdown where he was left all alone in the end zone. He also hauled in a deep pass down the right sideline in the fourth quarter, and he went over Kareem Jackson for a third-down conversion on the final touchdown drive. Still the No. 1 receiver even with Davante Adams surging, Nelson will remain a WR2 even with the Seahawks and Richard Sherman coming to town next week.
Dec 4 - 4:20 PM

LeGarrette Blount rushed 18 times for 88 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' Week 13 beatdown of the Rams.

Almost all of Blount's production came on the first drive, where he rushed three times for 55 yards alone, including a 43-yard scoring sprint. Rather than put the ball in Blount's belly in clock-killing mode, the Patriots kept throwing short passes to the likes of Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, and Malcolm Mitchell. Blount obviously still paid Week 13 fantasy dividends. He'll be a tougher sell against Baltimore's stout front in Week 14.
Dec 4 - 4:19 PM

Carson Wentz completed 36-of-60 passes for 308 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions in the Eagles' 32-14, Week 13 loss to the Bengals.

The whopping 60 pass attempts easily set a new season-high for the rookie. He could (shoulder) have been picked off at least two other times, and WLB Vontaze Burfict got him twice. Since starting 3-0 before the Week 4 bye, the Eagles have lost 7-of-9 and five of their last six. Wentz's lone touchdown was on a 4th-and-5 play to Zach Ertz on a busted coverage. It can't all be blamed on Wentz, however, as he has very little help in terms of playmakers. Jordan Matthews (ankle) missed this one, and Dorial Green-Beckham left early with a ribs injury. Wentz won't be a fantasy option next week against the Redskins.
Dec 4 - 4:13 PM

Jordan Howard had 32 carries for 117 yards and three touchdowns in Chicago's Week 13 win over the 49ers.

Howard scored his touchdowns on three straight drives in the red zone. The conditions at Soldier Field forced a run-heavy gamescript, with Chicago feeding Howard a career-high 32 times. The per-carry average wasn't great, but Howard ran hard all game and faced stacked fronts trying to kill the clock late. Howard has five 100-plus yard games and at least 90 total yards in eight of the last nine weeks. He's a back-end RB1 for Week 14 against Detroit.
Dec 4 - 4:10 PM

Todd Gurley rushed 11 times for 38 yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for nine yards in the Rams' Week 13 loss to the Patriots.

New England has played shutdown run defense all year, and Sunday was no different against a Rams running game that hasn't gotten going all year. Gurley has now reached 100 total yards in 1-of-12 games. Even against the Falcons' leaky run defense in Week 14, Gurley will be nothing more than a low-end RB2 play.
Dec 4 - 4:10 PM

Julio Jones caught 7-of-9 targets for 113 yards in the Falcons' Week 13 loss to the Chiefs.

Jones was dominating early, catching four passes for 52 yards on the Chiefs' opening drive. That would end up the highlight. He started seeing the occasional shadow from Marcus Peters, and was in and out of the game late with a foot or ankle issue. Jones' snaps were very limited down the stretch. He also had a would-be 40-yard reception wiped out by intentional pass interference from the Chiefs. Nevertheless, the 100-yard game was his seventh of the season. Provided his health cooperates, Jones will be his usual top-three self against the Rams in Week 14.
