Yahoo Sports' Charles Robinson reports Aaron Rodgers is both "frustrated" and "emotional" because he was not consulted before the Packers made some significant personnel decisions this offseason.

Robinson reports the specific moves which have Rodgers miffed are the decisions to cut ties with Jordy Nelson and QBs coach Alex Van Pelt. "Both of those decisions were made without him," a source told Robinson. "In both situations, he had no influence with [the front office] before anything went down." Rodgers made some noise about the Van Pelt decision when it happened, calling it "curious" and "interesting" before making it clear he was not consulted about the move. There clearly seems to be some friction between Rodgers and the front office, and that could prove troublesome as the two sides look to work out a mega-extension this summer. Rodgers has two more years left on his deal.

JuJu Smith-Schuster hauled in 8-of-12 targets for 130 yards and two touchdowns in the Steelers' Week 14 loss to the Raiders.

Smith-Schuster was the only Steeler who met expectations in the loss. His best catch of the game came just before halftime. On third-and-goal from the one, Smith-Schuster tipped a high pass into the air at the back of the end zone, caught the pass on the way down, and somehow tapped both toes down for the touchdown. The receiver pulled in a similar catch along the sidelines in the third quarter, but he was mostly shut down along with the rest of the offense with Josh Dobbs at quarterback for most of the second half. That immediately changed once Ben Roethlisberger returned. Ben missed Smith-Schuster for what should have been a long touchdown, but he made it up to him with a one-yard score to give Pittsburgh back the lead. After the Raiders retook the lead, JuJu took a hook-and-lateral 43 yards to set up what should have been a game-tying field goal, but it was missed. Smith-Schuster now has four touchdowns in his last five games and at least 90 yards in four of those contests. He will

Jeff Wilson rushed 23 times for 90 yards in the 49ers' Week 14 win over the Broncos, adding a six-yard reception.

The fill-in No. 1 back out-touched Alfred Morris 24-3 as the 49ers sprung the home upset. Wilson was not as explosive or involved in the receiving game as last week, but he still helped move the chains as Nick Mullens hit chunk plays in the passing game. Wilson's Week 15 fantasy case will be all about Matt Breida's (ankle) health. If Breida sits, Wilson will have massive upside against the Seahawks' beleaguered run defense.
Dec 9 - 7:38 PM

Austin Ekeler rushed 15 times for 66 yards and one touchdown in the Chargers' 26-21, Week 14 win over the Bengals, adding two catches for 28 yards on five targets.

Last week, rookie Justin Jackson vastly outplayed Ekeler in the thrilling win over the Steelers, but coach Anthony Lynn went right back to Ekeler in this one, giving him the start. Ekeler came out hot, ripping 14- and 18-yard runs on two of his first three carries and then finding the end zone from one yard out in the first half. Jackson touched it nine times, producing a measly 35 scoreless yards. Melvin Gordon is inching closer to a return, but the Chargers have a short week ahead of Thursday night against the Chiefs. Ekeler will be an RB2 if Gordon sits.

Chris Boswell slipped and had the potential game-tying kick blocked in the final seconds of the Steelers' Week 14 loss to the Raiders.

It was one of two misses for Boswell on the day, and he has now missed six field goals and five extra point attempts this season. Boswell earned a four-year, $16.7 million extension with a Pro Bowl season in 2017, but he has been dreadful this year. The Steelers might have to look at a change.
Dec 9 - 7:35 PM

Derek Carr completed 25-of-34 passes for 322 yards and two touchdowns in the Raiders' upset win over the Steelers.

Carr started this game hot, completing each of his first six passes to help the Raiders jump out to an early 7-0 lead. He did not do much of note following that opening drive, however, and lost a bad fumble with Oakland in scoring position in the third quarter. He bounced back in a big way in the fourth. With the Raiders down by four, Carr led a 14-play, 73-yard touchdown drive to give them the lead. He kicked off that march with a great throw to Marcell Ateman for 28 yards, found Jordy Nelson for a big third-down conversion, and capped the drive with a three-yard toss to Lee Smith. The Steelers quickly answered back, but Carr would not concede. He quickly led Oakland back down the field, picking up 39 yards with a pinpoint throw to Seth Roberts to set up a first-and-goal. After three failed plays, he found Derek Carrier open at the goal line for the game-winning score. It was an impressive final quarter for the maligned QB. He will look to keep that momentum going against the Bengals.

George Kittle caught 7-of-9 targets for 210 yards and a touchdown in the 49ers' Week 14 win over the Broncos.

Kittle did all of his damage in the first half. He needed just five second half yards to set the single-game record for a tight end and somehow did not get it. You would think the coach of a 2-10 team would have done him a solid and ensured he got in the record book. As it is, Kittle became the first tight end in 49ers history to post a 1,000-yard season. The highlight was an 85-yard touchdown where the Broncos did not bother to cover the 49ers' No. 1 weapon. Kittle was routinely running completely free, at least before the break. The 49ers get the Seahawks for Week 15.
Dec 9 - 7:25 PM

Ben Roethlisberger (ribs) returned to the game with the Steelers trailing the Raiders 17-14 in the fourth quarter.

Roethlisberger returned the sidelines in the third quarter, but Josh Dobbs stayed in the game. It always seemed like he would be available in emergency situations, and that is exactly where Pittsburgh finds themselves late in the fourth.
Dec 9 - 7:09 PM

Joe Mixon rushed 26 times for 111 yards and one touchdown in the Bengals' 26-21, Week 14 loss to the Chargers, adding five catches for 27 yards on six targets.

Plain and simple, Mixon was the offense. The Bengals were able to hang around in this one all day long because Mixon was fighting hard for yards on every touch. He finally found the end zone with 1:50 left to play from one yard out on his 31st touch of the day. Mixon will be an RB1 next week in a cake spot at home against the Raiders in a game the Bengals should have a shot to win.
Dec 9 - 7:06 PM

Adrian Peterson rushed ten times for 16 yards and caught his lone target for three yards in Washington's Week 14 loss to the Giants.

Peterson never thrives in negative game script, so a bust of a fantasy day was unavoidable when Washington fell behind 40-0 by the third quarter. Peterson should stay on fantasy benches in Week 15 at Jacksonville.
Dec 9 - 5:31 PM

Julian Edelman caught 9-of-12 targets for 86 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' Week 14 loss to the Dolphins.

The Dolphins simply couldn't cover Edelman in the slot, and he kept the chains moving at will in addition to scoring a short touchdown on an un-cover-able quickness route versus rookie CB Cornell Armstrong. Edelman next catches the Steelers, who use linebackers to cover slot receivers and pay for it regularly.
Dec 9 - 5:10 PM

Josh Gordon caught 5-of-8 targets for 96 yards in the Patriots' Week 14 loss to the Dolphins.

Gordon was a run-after-catch monster in this one, although his longest gain came on a 41-yard defensive pass interference flag drawn on Minkah Fitzpatrick, who covered Gordon for almost the entire game. Gordon lacks his old speed, but he is playing at a very high level regardless with body control and physical post-catch running. Gordon will remain a WR2 in Week 15 at Pittsburgh.
