Latest Headlines

The Chicago Tribune reports the Bears are "fully expected" to use the franchise tag on free agent DT Henry Melton if a long-term deal isn't reached before the March 4 deadline to apply the tag.

The Tribune had previously reported it was a "good bet" Melton would be tagged absent a long-term deal. According to beat writer Brad Biggs, the sides will meet Saturday at the Combine. Coming off a two-year emergence as 3-technique force, Melton figures to be asking for the moon in long-term talks, making the tag likely.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Dec 4 - 4:07 PM

Andy Dalton completed 23-of-31 passes for 332 yards and two touchdowns in the Bengals' 32-14, Week 13 win over the Eagles.

It was arguably Dalton's best passing performance of the season, as his 130.0 rating was a new season-best. His two touchdowns went to Brandon LaFell in the back of the end zone from eight yards out, and then Dalton threw a perfectly-lofted 13-yard score to Tyler Eifert for his second score. This Eagles pass defense has been picked apart in recent weeks and isn't anywhere as elite as some metrics would make it look. Dalton will be on the streaming radar next week at the Browns.
Dec 4 - 4:07 PM

Jared Goff completed 14-of-32 passes for 161 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Rams' Week 13 loss to the Patriots.

He took four sacks and didn't lead the Rams to a touchdown drive until deep garbage time, capped by a short score to Kenny Britt. Goff's pocket presence reminded of Blaine Gabbert in Foxboro, and the Rams' assertion that Goff "wasn't ready" a month ago has held strong since he took the reins from Case Keenum. Indeed, Keenum is a better option at this point. Goff will be a poor two-quarterback-league play in Week 14 against the Falcons.
