According to CSN Bay Area, the 49ers "feel good" about finishing the season with Michael Crabtree (Achilles), Anquan Boldin, and Mario Manningham (knee) as their top three wide receivers.

In other words, if the 49ers have interest in Josh Gordon, they're not showing their cards yet. The NFL trade deadline is October 29. Manningham is returning from a multiple-knee ligament tear, while Crabtree is coming off a ruptured Achilles' tendon. Neither is a safe bet to be 100 percent upon return. The Niners believe Crabtree will be "game-ready" by mid to late November.

Rex Burkhead exited Week 15 against the Steelers in the third quarter with a left knee injury.

Burkhead was injured on a carry near the goal line in the third quarter. It was tough to see what happened, but the fact he was quickly ruled out suggests Burkhead is dealing with a serious injury. Burkhead did convert a short touchdown in the first half before exiting. Dion Lewis should handle the goal-line work the rest of the way.

Antonio Brown was taken to the hospital for further examination of his "calf" injury.

He is obviously out for the rest of the game, and the decision to take him to the hospital suggests reports of a "calf bruise" are underselling the injury. Martavis Bryant and JuJu Smith-Schuster will lead the receiving corps with Brown sidelined.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Marqise Lee suffered a sprained ankle in Week 15 against Houston.

Lee looks to have avoided structural damage after X-Rays were negative. He's still potentially dealing with a high-ankle sprain, putting the rest of his season in jeopardy. Lee's status will be updated after an MRI on Monday.

Sterling Shepard caught 11-of-16 targets for 139 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 15 loss to the Eagles.

Shepard has battled ankle, hamstring, and migraine problems throughout the season, and so it was fair to wonder about his health after he drew just three targets in last week's loss to the Cowboys despite playing almost all of the Giants' offensive snaps. Shepard put those fears to bed in a dominant effort, torching the Eagles' secondary for a 5/99/1 receiving line in the first quarter alone. Shepard will be an upside WR2 play when the Giants visit Arizona in Week 16. The Cardinals struggle badly versus slot receivers.

Blaine Gabbert completed 16-of-41 passes for 189 yards with one interception while rushing six times for 28 yards Sunday in the Cardinals’ Week 15 loss to the Redskins.

He fumbled three times, but only lost one of them. Da Vinci painted the Mona Lisa, Michelangelo sculpted the statue of David and Blaine Gabbert … well, he lost to the Redskins. Gabbert, who the Cardinals are apparently considering for a contract extension, was jaw-droppingly bad on Sunday. He lost a fumble on the Cardinals’ first possession, leading to an easy Redskins touchdown. The nightmare continued with a red-zone interception later in the half before Gabbert pulled a Mark Sanchez by running into his own offensive lineman in the fourth quarter, fumbling for a loss of 18. His longest completion came on a 46-yard strike to J.J. Nelson in the second quarter. Even when he was upright, which was rare on a day when the Redskins sacked him five times for a loss of 44 yards, Gabbert sailed numerous throws in a puzzlingly display of inaccuracy. This was about as bad it gets but luckily for Gabbert, he’ll be in a great position next week against the 2-12 Giants.

Mark Ingram caught 5-of-6 targets for 77 yards and rushed 12 times for 74 yards and two touchdowns in the Saints' Week 15 win over the Jets.

Ingram started his day with a 54-yard gain on a screen pass – it probably should have been a 64-yard touchdown – and already had 80 yards on four catches and a short rushing touchdown by the end of the first quarter. The offense surprisingly struggled for most of the rest of the game, but Ingram was able to get loose for a 50-yard touchdown with less than two minutes left to ice the win. Ingram topped both 1,000 rushing yards and 10 rushing scores for the season in this game. He will remain a must-start option next week against the Falcons.

Zach Ertz caught 6-of-9 targets for 56 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' Week 15 win over the Giants.

As they usually do versus tight ends, the Giants did a poor job covering Ertz and Trey Burton, who combined for eight catches, 81 yards, and two scores. Carson Wentz's ACL tear may lower Ertz's weekly ceiling, but he remains an elite every-week TE1 with Nick Foles under center. Ertz draws another great-looking matchup in Week 16 against the Raiders' leaky tight end defense.
Dec 17 - 4:53 PM

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

In this week's surprise shootout, Foles avoided mistakes and executed in the red zone as Philly held off a surprisingly resurgent Giants team, 34-29. Foles connected with four difference pass catchers for his scores and was in complete command, taking just one sack. Foles will stay in play as a Week 16 streamer when the Eagles host a burnable Raiders defense in fantasy title week.
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.

Olsen more than doubled his season totals across the board, finally welcoming himself to 2017. Olsen was left literally wide open more than once, including on his 30-yard touchdown. The Packers blitzed, left no safety help in the secondary and Olsen waltzed into the painted area. Olsen looked spry, seeming to be his usual self. He was not a "step slower," so to speak. He could stay hot for the fantasy finals in a mouthwatering matchup with the Bucs.
Dec 17 - 4:44 PM

Michael Thomas hauled in 9-of-11 targets for 93 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' Week 15 win over the Jets.

Thomas had a touchdown stolen from him when his elbow hit the ground mere milliseconds before the ball crossed the goal line in the first quarter, and he had another called back in the third quarter when replay showed his toe landed just out of bounds in the back of the end zone. Thomas finally got his score on the next drive. He caught four passes for 50 yards on that march, and his touchdown essentially ended the game despite a late comeback attempt by the Jets. Thomas now has touchdowns in three consecutive games and at least 70 yards in all but four contests this season. He will be a safe WR1 next week against the Falcons.
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.
