Jaguars DT Roy Miller has been diagnosed with a torn meniscus, and requires surgery.

It's poor timing for a player who just signed a four-year, $16.25 million extension, but isn't a major injury. Miller should be a full participant in the Jags' offseason program. Miller is a run plugger, nothing more, nothing less.

Marcedes Lewis caught 2-of-3 targets for six yards and a touchdown in the Jags' Week 16 win over the Titans.

Lewis' score came on a well-executed fade in the second quarter. It was his first touchdown since Week 2. Going on 31, Lewis is signed for a hefty $6.65 million next season.

Storm Johnson rushed three times for three yards in the Jags' Week 16 win over the Titans.

The seventh-round rookie was a distant third on the depth chart behind Toby Gerhart and Jordan Todman. Johnson could be in for a bigger role in Week 17 if Gerhart is sidelined by his rib injury.
Dec 19 - 12:03 AM

Jordan Todman rushed five times for 71 yards and a touchdown in the Jaguars' Week 16 win over the Titans, adding two catches for five yards.

Todman had the play of the night in the fourth quarter. With the Jags running a fake reverse, Todman took the handoff, made one cut and was off to the races for a 62-yard touchdown. Todman showed serious speed in housing his first score of the year. He could be in for a bigger role in Week 17 if Toby Gerhart (ribs) can't go.

Nate Washington caught 2-of-3 targets for 18 yards in the Titans' Week 16 loss to the Jaguars.

Washington's 6/102 Week 15 outburst was due in large part to facing the Jets' invisible secondary. The workmanlike veteran will not be on the DFS radar for next week's finale against the Colts.
Dec 18 - 11:59 PM

Delanie Walker caught 4-of-6 targets for 54 yards in the Titans' Week 16 loss to the Jaguars.

Walker's knee was not an issue. Walker cost himself a fifth grab by failing to get both feet in bounds when it appeared he should have been able to. That's easy for us to say, of course. Producing like a mid-range TE1, that's what Walker will remain for Week 17 against the Colts. Walker could be an interesting play in DFS leagues if the Colts send out their B Team.
Dec 18 - 11:54 PM

Kendall Wright caught 4-of-5 targets for 73 yards in the Titans' Week 16 loss to the Jaguars.

Wright had missed each of the Titans' past two games with a hand issue, but looked no worse for the wear in Jacksonville. Wright was shaken up after one of his longer grabs, but was never announced with an injury, and quickly returned. He'll be a WR4 for Week 17 against the Colts.
Dec 18 - 11:52 PM

Marqise Lee caught 4-of-6 targets for 65 yards in the Jags' Week 16 win over the Titans.

Lee led the Jags in receiving on a night where the team generated just 111 net yards through the air. Lee showed some nice explosion after the catch, and continues to look more and more like the stud he was at USC. He'll be an interesting daily-league dart throw in Week 17 against the Texans' shoddy secondary.
Dec 18 - 11:49 PM

Allen Hurns caught 3-of-6 targets for 26 yards in the Jaguars' Week 16 win over the Titans.

Blake Bortles completed only 13 passes, so there wasn't much action to go around. Hurns has been a bright spot as an undrafted free agent, but will be returning to a muddled receiver corps in 2015.
Dec 18 - 11:47 PM

Cecil Shorts caught 2-of-7 targets for 15 yards in the Jaguars' Week 16 win over the Titans.

It was another brutal effort for a veteran in the midst of a disappointing season, as Shorts committed no fewer than three drops. In a sign of how Shorts' night went, one of his muffs was wiped out by an offensive pass interference penalty. Shorts won't be a recommended DFS play in Week 17 against the Texans.
Dec 18 - 11:45 PM

Leon Washington caught 7-of-7 targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in Tennessee's Week 16 loss to the Jaguars, adding four rushes for 11 yards.

With Dexter McCluster (knee) done for the season, Washington was the Titans' change-of-pace back, and easily led the backfield in yards from scrimmage. Amusingly, Washington received a goal-line carry on Tennessee's opening drive. He failed to cash it in, but caught an eight-yard score two plays later. It would go down as the Titans' only touchdown of the night. Despite the nifty performance, Washington won't be on the Week 17 DFS radar.
Dec 18 - 11:40 PM

Shonn Greene rushed seven times for 28 yards in the Titans' Week 16 loss to the Jaguars.

He wasn't targeted in the passing game. Greene must have been tuckered out after getting his "revenge" on the Jets last Sunday, as his seven touches were 10 fewer than he received in Week 15. Bishop Sankey again led the Titans' committee. Greene gets to close the book on an(other) uninspiring campaign against the Colts next week.
Dec 18 - 11:38 PM

Bishop Sankey rushed 14 times for 44 yards in the Titans' Week 16 loss to the Jaguars.

He added a nine-yard reception. One week after coach Ken Whisenhunt decided to let Shonn Greene get his "revenge" against the Jets, Sankey was reinstalled as the chairman of Tennessee's committee, but was again unimpressive. Sankey showed speed, but no wiggle, running right into defenders and then getting taken down. He averaged a mere 3.1 yards per carry, and has surpassed 4.0 just once in his past 11 games. Sankey has elite measurables, but they've yet to translate to on-field success.
Dec 18 - 11:34 PM

Charlie Whitehurst completed 24-of-35 passes for 287 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' 21-13, Week 16 loss to the Jaguars.

Clipboard Jesus came out dropping dimes, going 6-of-6 for 71 yards and a touchdown on the Titans' opening drive. He cooled off considerably thereafter, but still delivered a surprising amount of precision passes into tight spaces. He was hurt by a lack of awareness from both Delanie Walker and Derek Hagan on incompletions that should have gone for big yards. Whitehurst has actually performed reasonably well in spot duty this season, but done nothing to disprove the notion that he's a career backup. He won't be on the fantasy radar for next week's finale against the Colts.
Dec 18 - 11:31 PM

Toby Gerhart rushed 12 times for 53 yards and a touchdown before leaving the Jaguars' Week 16 win over the Titans with a rib injury.

He added a seven-yard reception. Shaken up in the second half, Gerhart briefly played through what was billed as a rib "contusion," but was then ruled out late in the fourth quarter. He operated as the Jags' clear lead back before going down, but ceded some touches to Storm Johnson and Jordan Todman. Gerhart was feisty between the tackles, shedding defenders and showing off some spin moves. He looked miserably slow when the Jags tried to send him around the edge, however. Gerhart should be considered questionable for next week's finale against the Texans.
