ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported on NFL Insiders Friday that free agent Cedric Benson is "in retirement mode."

Benson is 30 years old and coming off a Lisfranc fracture, so it's not surprising he's seriously considering hanging up the cleats. If this is truly it for the No. 4 overall pick in the 2005 draft, Benson will finish his eight-year career with 1,600 carries for 6,017 yards (3.8 YPC) and 32 rushing touchdowns.

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.

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.

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 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.

Eagles TE Trey Burton caught 5-of-6 targets for 71 yards and two touchdowns in the Eagles' Week 14 win over the Rams.

Burton's day got off to an ominous start when Brent Celek scored on the Eagles' opening drive, but Burton had a score of his own before the first quarter was through. He then scored again in the opening minutes of the second. It was everything fantasy streamers could have hoped for. With Zach Ertz (concussion) expected back for Week 15, Burton won't be on the radar against the Giants' sieve-like tight end defense.
Dec 10 - 8:30 PM

Cooper Kupp caught 5-of-7 targets for 118 yards and a touchdown in the Rams' Week 14 loss to the Eagles.

The 100-yard game was Kupp's second in three weeks. He had a 64-yard grab where he did major damage after the catch. Three of Kupp's four-highest yardage totals have come since Thanksgiving. The production binge has also coincided with Robert Woods' (shoulder) absence. Woods is expected back for Week 15 in Seattle, which would make Kupp more of a WR3 than the WR2 he's been producing as of late.

Jimmy Graham failed to record on reception on two targets in Sunday's Week 14 loss to the Jaguars.

Graham has been living off touchdowns to save his fantasy floor, but Sunday was the first time that Graham was held without a reception since Week 13, 2014. His two targets were tied for the fewest he's had on the season and the least he's had since Week 2. Graham had scored in seven of his previous eight games entering the week with nine total touchdowns over that span. The yardage totals aren't surprising, however as he has now been held to 40 or fewer yards in six of his past nine games. That said, he's playing alongside the hottest quarterback in the league while on a team that can't produce rushing touchdowns from their backfield. More touchdowns will be coming down the line. There will be better days for Graham ahead and he will remain a TE1 option next week against the Rams.
Dec 10 - 8:15 PM

Todd Gurley rushed 13 times for 96 yards and two touchdowns in the Rams' Week 14 loss to the Eagles, adding three receptions for 39 additional yards.

Gurley was running wild from the opening drive, where he piled up 32 yards and a score on two touches. Strangely, he was barely used the rest of the first half, though coach Sean McVay did resume getting him the ball after the break. Gurley seemed to have as much juice in his legs as he has all season. Extreme value and touchdown opportunity will keep Gurley in the top five for Week 15, but he has a daunting road assignment in the Seahawks.
Dec 10 - 8:09 PM

Alshon Jeffery caught 5-of-11 targets for 52 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' Week 14 win over the Rams.

The score was Jeffery's eighth of the season. He made a shoestring catch in the end zone. It came with a cost, as it ended up being Carson Wentz's final play of the day before departing with a knee injury. There's worry Wentz has torn his ACL. Nick Foles would be a drastic downgrade for the entire Eagles offense, and make Jeffery a risky WR2 for the duration of the fantasy playoffs.
Dec 10 - 7:57 PM

Demaryius Thomas absorbed eight-of-12 targets for 93 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Broncos’ Week 14 win over the Jets.

It was a much-needed bounce-back performance for Thomas, who had been held to just seven catches for 45 yards in his previous two games. Thomas scored Denver’s first touchdown of the day in bizarre fashion pulling in a 20-yard lob from Trevor Siemian on a play that Morris Claiborne appeared to lose in the sun. He kept the engine running with a 25-yard grab late in the third quarter for his longest catch of the afternoon. The 93 yards were Thomas’ most since Week 6 against the Giants when he went for a season-high 133 yards on 10 catches. Thomas will be back at it Thursday night against the Colts.
Dec 10 - 7:56 PM

Russell Wilson completed 17-of-31 passes for 271 yards with three touchdowns and three interceptions while adding 50 yards rushing on five carries in Sunday's Week 14 loss to the Jaguars.

In his toughest matchup of the season, Wilson had his hands full early on.He hit halftime with a season-low 36 yards to go along with an interception. Wilson then found the long ball in the second half, connecting on gains of 43, 61 and 74 yards in the second half, with the last two being touchdowns to Paul Richardson and Tyler Lockett for fourth quarter. Those two touchdowns gave Wilson 17 fourth quarter passing touchdowns on the season, an NFL record for a single season. Wilson did throw the three picks - two to A.J. Bouye and one to Jalen Ramsey-but still turned in a top-5 fantasy week in his toughest assignment of the season. Wilson will be a set and forget QB1 option next week when the Seahawks host the Rams.
Dec 10 - 7:52 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Eagles are "concerned" Carson Wentz has torn his left ACL.

It's a worst case scenario after Wentz went down late in Sunday's win. More should be known after an MRI but it sounds like he's done for the year. Losing Wentz is a major hit to Philly's chances of making a deep playoff run. The Eagles are now forced to turn to Nick Foles at quarterback.
