James White rushed four times for 11 yards and a touchdown and caught 4-of-7 targets for 29 yards and an additional score in the Patriots' Divisional Round win over the Titans.

After Dion Lewis put the Patriots in second-quarter scoring position, White put the Pats into the end zone on a shovel-pass touchdown from five yards out. Less than three minutes later, White scored his second TD on a six-yard carry. White could have had a much bigger yardage day, but he dropped two passes that would have gone for significant gains. Although it was still a productive effort from New England’s main passing-down back, White’s role in the AFC Championship game will be affected by Rex Burkhead’s (knee) health.

Tyler Lockett caught both of his targets for 45 yards in the Seahawks' Week 15 overtime loss to the 49ers.

Outside of his 28-yard grab, Lockett had a very forgettable game with Russell Wilson finding Doug Baldwin for two touchdowns and with both Chris Carson and Mike Davis setting new career highs for receptions. Lockett is a candidate to have a rebound game next week with the Chiefs on deck, but Lockett has been largely touchdown dependent this season as a WR3.

Doug Baldwin (hip) caught 4-of-6 passes for 77 yards and two touchdowns in the Seahawks' Week 15 overtime loss to the 49ers.

Baldwin looked healthy, especially after 49ers CB Ahkello Witherspoon left the game in the first quarter. Just minutes after Witherspoon was sent to the locker room, Baldwin scored an easy touchdown with a backup rookie chasing him around. Baldwin then caught a 35-yard touchdown thanks to another poor job by the 49ers secondary. With the Chiefs coming to town, Baldwin will have an elevated ceiling in a game that should be more high scoring than the typical Seahawks contest, but inconsistent volume will keep Baldwin as an upside WR3.

Mike Davis rushed five times for 21 yards and caught 8-of-8 targets for 63 yards in the Seahawks' Week 15 overtime loss to the 49ers.

Russell Wilson must have loved the matchups his running backs had against the 49ers because both Chris Carson and Davis set career highs in receptions on Sunday. Davis remained firmly behind Chris Carson as a runner however, so Davis is only a speculative add in deeper PPR leagues with the Chiefs coming to Seattle in Week 16. Rashaad Penny will need to be ruled out once again for Davis to have any chance at a repeat performance.

Chris Carson rushed 22 times for 119 yards and one touchdown and caught 6-of-6 targets for 29 yards in the Seahawks' Week 15 overtime loss to the 49ers.

Carson was featured as a runner once again, but he also set career highs in targets and receptions with the Seahawks trailing at half. Entering the game, Carson only had 13 receptions across 11 games, so this will likely end up being an outlier performance, but it is notable that the Seahawks could be in similar game script as they were this week with the high-flying Chiefs coming to town. With Carson gobbling up 15-20 carries per week, he will an upside RB2 in Week 16.

Russell Wilson completed 23-of-31 passes for 237 yards and two touchdowns in the Seahawks' Week 15 overtime loss to the 49ers.

This was a game the Seahawks should have won but personal fouls and sloppy defense cost them the win. The offense looked good for most of the game however. Wilson was able to pick on the backup corners which led to two easy touchdowns, and Chris Carson picked up 119 yards on 22 carries. Wilson can still pop for bigger fantasy lines as a passer, but it's hard for him to have a huge ceiling when he's not running the ball like he used to. Wilson will still be a QB1 in next week's home matchup against the Chiefs.

George Kittle caught 3-of-8 targets for 51 yards in the 49ers' Week 15 overtime win over the Seahawks.

This was Kittle's worst fantasy game since Week 6 at Green Bay, but it was very close to another big day. Kittle found space down the seam, but Nick Mullens sailed a pass over his head, which cost Kittle a long touchdown. Even without it, Kittle will still finish close to a TE1 this week after picking up 51 yards, and he should bounce back next week against the Bears at home. Kittle will be a top-four option once again as Mullens' top weapon.

Matt Breida suffered an ankle injury in the 49ers' Week 15 win over Seattle.

Breida aggravated the same ankle he's been dealing with for weeks. The injury happened late in the fourth quarter, so it's not clear how much of a setback this is. Breida out-touched Jeff Wilson by a wide margin in his return Sunday, though that may not have been the case if not for a fumble and costly personal foul. We'll have an update on Breida no later than Wednesday.
Dec 16 - 8:12 PM

Dante Pettis caught all five of his targets for 83 yards in the 49ers' Week 15 overtime win over the Seahawks.

Pettis led the 49ers' receivers in targets, receptions, and yards in Sunday's overtime win, and he continues to be a big play waiting to happen. This time around Pettis made a diving play with tight coverage down the sideline for a 30-yard pickup. The rookie receiver and the 49ers offense in general will have a tougher time next week against the Bears, but Pettis has earned WR3/4 treatment as the 49ers No. 1 receiver.
Dec 16 - 8:02 PM

Matt Breida rushed for 50 yards on 17 carries and caught 5-of-5 targets for 46 yards in the 49ers' Week 15 overtime win over the Seahawks.

Breida (ankle) appeared healthy after sitting out in Week 15, and he returned as the clear-cut No. 1 running back for the Niners with Jeff Wilson only collecting eight touches to Breida's 22. Breida's starting role should be safe entering Week 16, especially after Wilson had a fumble and a dropped screen pass on his eight touches. Despite a tough draw against the Bears defense, Breida will be a volume-based RB2 next Sunday. Breida has at least three receptions and 31 yards in four of five games with Nick Mullens as the quarterback.

Antonio Brown caught 4-of-7 targets for 49 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' Week 15 win over the Patriots.

Tony Romo deemed the motion that got Brown loose for his 13th touchdown of the season as a "switch release." That matches Brown's career high from 2014. He will be facing Marshon Lattimore and the Saints as he looks to establish a new high-water mark in Week 16. As long as he lines up on Eli Apple a few plays, Brown will get that number.
Dec 16 - 7:47 PM

Jaylen Samuels rushed 19 times for 142 yards in the Steelers' Week 15 win over the Patriots, adding two receptions for 30 additional yards.

More involved as the game wore on, Samuels put the Steelers' offense on his back in the second quarter. His numbers were not goosed by any runs longer than 25 yards, he was simply consistently churning yards. Samuels had the smoothness of a pass catcher in the run game. It's hard to see how the Steelers could mothball him following the return of James Conner. Conner will surely take the lead on the ground, but Samuels demands snaps in the third down/change-of-pace realm. Pittsburgh is heading to New Orleans to take on the Saints' dominant run defense in Week 16. Conner is expected to play.
