Ben Roethlisberger (ribs) fully expects to play against the Patriots on Sunday.

"No, no, I don’t think so," Roethlisberger responded when asked if there was any reason he would not play against New England. Coach Mike Tomlin revealed Roethlisberger did not immediately re-enter Sunday's game against Oakland because it takes pain-killers some time to kick in, suggesting Roethlisberger's injury is just a pain-management issue. Assuming he plays, Roethlisberger will be a solid QB1 against New England.

NFL Network's Steve Wyche reports the Chargers are "not optimistic" Austin Ekeler (neck, concussion) will play Thursday against the Chiefs.

Ekeler seemed like a longshot to play after he was added to the concussion protocol on Monday. The Chargers also expect to be without Melvin Gordon, meaning Justin Jackson should carry the load against the Chiefs. He is the No. 1 add in leagues he is still available.

NFL Network's Steve Wyche reports the Chargers are "not optimistic" Melvin Gordon (knee) will play Thursday against the Chiefs.

There was some hope Gordon would return for the pivotal matchup, but those were all but dashed when he was listed as a DNP on Monday. The Chargers also expect to be without Austin Ekeler (neck), leaving Justin Jackson to carry the load. He is the No. 1 add in leagues he is still available.

Jerry Jones said DL David Irving (ankle) has a chance to return this week.

Irving was given a 4-6 week timetable when he suffered the injury a little over a month ago. This has been a lost season for Irving, who missed all of training camp and the first four games because of a suspension and some personal issues. The owner of eight sacks in his last 10 games, Irving should boost an already good defense when he returns.

Jerry Jones said LB Sean Lee (hamstring) could return this week.

Lee has been out since aggravating his hamstring issue in Week 9. Jones has said Lee will return to a starting job, but it makes sense for the Cowboys to limit his snaps with Jaylon Smith and rookie Leighton Vander Esch playing well.
Dec 11 - 9:55 AM

Jerry Jones said Tavon Austin (groin) has a chance to return this week.

Austin has been sidelined since Week 6 with a groin injury. He will likely get some gadget touches once he returns, but Austin is not a fantasy factor.

David Moore failed to catch any of his five targets in the Seahawks' Week 14 win over the Vikings.

He and Tyler Lockett (six) were the only Seahawks with more than one target. Russell Wilson went 10-of-20 for 72 yards and a pick, but Moore could have had a bigger night. He was able to only get one foot in bounds on what should have been a 35-yard touchdown and later dropped a pass. Moore saw elevated snaps with Doug Baldwin (hip) out, but his night was very frustrating.
Dec 10 - 11:53 PM

Kyle Rudolph caught 2-of-5 targets for seven yards in the Vikings' Week 14 loss to the Seahawks.

Rudolph was targeted on a 4th-and-goal play from the two-yard line, but it fell incomplete in the third quarter. It's simply been a lost season for Rudolph, who just isn't converting his red-zone targets this year. It's made Rudolph a barely-playable last-gasp TE1 in fantasy. He gets the Dolphins next.
Dec 10 - 11:49 PM

Nick Vannett caught his lone target for 12 yards in the Seahawks' Week 14 win over the Vikings.

He caught Russell Wilson's first pass of the game. Wilson completed just 10 passes, and Vannett and Tyler Lockett (42 yards) were the only Seahawks with double-digit receiving yards. Vannett is a bottom-barrel TE2.
Dec 10 - 11:49 PM

Adam Thielen caught 5-of-7 targets for 70 yards in the Vikings' Week 14 loss to the Seahawks.

He added an eight-yard rush. Thielen wasn't targeted in the first half as Kirk Cousins had just 27 passing yards at the break, and didn't catch his first look until there was 6:08 left in the third quarter. He got going with stats on the final meaningless drive, posting a 35-yard catch-and-run before going for 10-plus yards on the next play. It was a nice way to help save his night. Thielen also appeared to injure his ankle but quickly returned to the game. This offense should rebound at home next week against the Dolphins off their Super Bowl win.
Dec 10 - 11:44 PM

Rashaad Penny rushed eight times for 44 yards in the Seahawks' Week 14 win over the Vikings.

Penny was out-carried 22-8 by Chris Carson, who managed 90 yards and a touchdown on the ground, while neither was targeted in the pass game. Penny has change-of-pace duties on lock but will likely need a Carson injury for fantasy viability. Penny and the 'Hawks get the Niners on the road next.
Dec 10 - 11:44 PM

Stefon Diggs caught 4-of-6 targets for 76 yards in the Vikings' Week 14 loss to the Seahawks.

His 48-yard grab deep downfield was the Vikings' biggest play of the night and helped set the offense up in Seahawks territory before eventually failing on 4th-and-goal from the two-yard line. Diggs' knee looked fine. He should rebound in a big way next week against the Xavien Howard-less Dolphins.
Dec 10 - 11:40 PM

Tyler Lockett caught 5-of-6 targets for 42 yards in the Seahawks' Week 14 win over the Vikings.

Lockett and Nick Vannett (12 yards) were the only Seahawks to have double-digit receiving yards on a night Russell Wilson managed just 72 yards on 20 attempts. Wilson was horrific. Lockett did add a two-point conversion to help boost his stats. Lockett should rebound next week at San Francisco.
Dec 10 - 11:38 PM

Dalvin Cook rushed 13 times for 55 yards and caught 5-of-7 targets for 28 yards and one touchdown in the Vikings' 21-7, Week 14 loss to the Seahawks.

Cook was the Vikings' best offensive player and probably should have touched the ball more, especially on a couple 3rd-and-1 calls by OC John DeFilippo where he rolled Kirk Cousins out to his right 12-15 yards behind the line to gain, which resulted in two incompletions and subsequent punts. Cook was earning tough yards and tied for the team lead in targets. His last-minute six-yard touchdown catch was as garbage-timey as they come with the Vikings down 21-0. Cook will be an RB2 next week at home against the Dolphins.
Dec 10 - 11:32 PM

Russell Wilson completed just 10-of-20 passes for 72 scoreless yards and an interception in the Seahawks' 21-7, Week 14 win over the Vikings.

Wilson at least made up for it a bit with 61 rushing yards, but he was one of the worst fantasy quarterbacks of the week. His big gaffe was just a flat-out stupid decision with six seconds left in the first half; Wilson was chased from the pocket, did a 360 turn, then blindly flung an interception right to LB Eric Kendricks with the Seahawks up 3-0 and near the goal line. Wilson never recovered and was bad all night. Seattle still won with ease on the back of Chris Carson and the run game along with the defense. Wilson should rebound next week at the Niners.
