Eddie Lacy had 17 carries for 99 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 16 win over the Bucs.

Lacy broke a tackle and powered his way to a 44-yard touchdown in the first quarter. He gained consistent yardage against the Bucs all game, averaging 5.8 YPC. Lacy went over 1,000 yards on the season with the performance. The Packers rested him late with a leg injury, but he shouldn't miss any practice time.

Josh Gordon secured 4-of-7 targets for 45 yards in the Browns' Week 16 loss to the Panthers.

Gordon had an early six-yard reception overturned when replay showed the ball hit the ground. He came back to record a handful of short receptions when Brian Hoyer entered the game in the second quarter, replacing Johnny Manziel (hamstring). Gordon will close out a suspension-shortened third NFL season against the Ravens' leaky secondary in Week 17. It's probably good news for Gordon's statistical outlook that Hoyer is back under center.
Dec 21 - 4:27 PM

Alshon Jeffery caught six passes for 72 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Lions.

Dec 21 - 4:26 PM

Harry Douglas caught 4-of-7 targets for 47 yards Week 16 against the Saints.

Douglas fell back into his No. 3 role with Julio Jones (oblique) active. He still saw seven targets and was a finger-tip grab away from a touchdown in the first half. Douglas will face the Panthers Week 17.
Dec 21 - 4:25 PM

Jordan Cameron secured 3-of-5 targets for 88 yards and a touchdown in the Browns' Week 16 loss to the Panthers.

Cameron was silent until the fourth quarter, when Brian Hoyer hit him for a dramatic 81-yard touchdown to give Cleveland the lead. It ultimately wasn't enough as the Panthers came back to win on a Cam Newton nine-yard touchdown pass to Jonathan Stewart. It's been a lost fantasy year for Cameron, but his ability to produce was never in question. He'll look to finish strong in a Week 17 date with Baltimore.
Dec 21 - 4:23 PM

Roddy White caught 6-of-9 targets for 55 yards Week 16 against the Saints.

White dropped a longish catch that would have made his stat line look a little prettier, but the reality is White does not have a ton of juice left in his legs. He will have a decent matchup against the Panthers Week 17.
Dec 21 - 4:23 PM

Matt Forte rushed 19 times for 55 yards and caught six passes for 40 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Lions.

With Jimmy Clausen settling this Bears offense down, Forte finally got the opportunities he deserved. And he was effective, especially considering he was facing the league's No. 2 defense. Forte's touchdown came at the end of the first half on a pretty, lofted throw that led him into the end zone. The Bears wrap up the season at Minnesota next week.
Dec 21 - 4:22 PM

Aaron Rodgers completed 31-of-40 passes for 318 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 16 win over the Bucs.

Rodgers mostly had to settle for check downs, targeting Randall Cobb 14 times. His touchdown didn't come until late in the fourth quarter on a one-yard pass to Jordy Nelson. Rodgers suffered an ankle injury on a sack, but didn't miss any time. It was another disappointing start after he was held without a touchdown last week. With the win, the Packers have officially clinched a playoff spot.
Dec 21 - 4:21 PM

Jonathan Stewart rushed 24 times for 122 yards and caught two passes for seven yards with a touchdown in the Panthers' Week 16 win over the Browns.

Stewart was limited to three yards on his initial three carries before breaking an eight-yarder on his fourth. His sixth carry went for 17 on a zone-read run. Stewart was the focal point of Carolina's offense in this game, but did have a two-yard touchdown "vultured" by Cam Newton in the second quarter. Stewart came back to hit pay dirt on a nine-yard reception in the fourth quarter. Regardless of DeAngelo Williams' (hand) health, Stewart should remain a good bet for production in Carolina's NFC South title bout with Atlanta in Week 17.
Dec 21 - 4:20 PM

Jerricho Cotchery secured 5-of-5 targets for 46 yards in the Panthers' Week 16 win over the Browns.

Particularly early in the game, Cotchery was a first-down machine on a day where Carolina's passing attack largely sputtered. The Panthers will need Cotchery to continue to play efficient football when they play the Falcons for the NFC South title in Week 17.
Dec 21 - 4:17 PM

Jacquizz Rodgers rushed 11 times for 29 yards Week 16 against the Saints.

Rodgers got an extended run out with Steven Jackson sidelined by a quad injury late in the first half. Rodgers ran hard as he always does, but there is simply not enough talent in his legs to be a feature back. Devonta Freeman will be the Falcons' best bet to move the ball if Jackson is forced to miss Week 17 against Carolina, but Rodgers will likely lead the backfield in touches.
Dec 21 - 4:17 PM

Ben Roethlisberger completed 18-of-25 passes for 220 yards and a touchdown in Pittsburgh's 20-12, Week 16 win over the Chiefs.

Big Ben was slowed by the Chiefs' elite pass defense, but found just enough cushions to propel the Steelers to their 10th win, and a Wild Card berth. Pittsburgh can still clinch the division if they beat the Bengals in Week 17. Ben was lucky to escape without a turnover, as he appeared to lose a first-half fumble, but it was ruled an incomplete pass upon a dubious review. Ben also tweaked his right knee, but was no worse for the wear after running to the locker room for some brief treatment.
Dec 21 - 4:16 PM

Greg Olsen secured just 1-of-3 targets for 21 yards in the Panthers' Week 16 win over the Browns.

With Jerricho Cotchery taking on a bigger role, Olsen wasn't targeted until midway through the second quarter. It's also worth noting that Cleveland has played stingy defense versus tight ends all year. Olsen will close out his career-best regular season in Week 17 at Atlanta.
Dec 21 - 4:16 PM

Devonta Freeman rushed five times for 36 yards and a touchdown Week 16 against the Saints, adding 3 catches for 48 yards.

Freeman busted through a seam on the right side of the Falcons' line, made the safety miss and raced 31-yards to the house to give the Falcons a 20-7 lead in the third quarter. It was probably the most impressive run by a Falcons back this season, but the coaching staff still limited Freeman's touches even with Steven Jackson (quad) sidelined. Jacquizz Rodgers averaged 2.6 yards per carry on 11 totes. Freeman could have a decent role against the Panthers Week 17 if Jackson is forced to miss.
Dec 21 - 4:14 PM

Kelvin Benjamin secured 5-of-12 targets for 47 yards in the Panthers' Week 16 win over the Browns.

Not having to deal with Joe Haden (shoulder), Benjamin made a spectacular leaping catch for 18 yards in the second quarter. Otherwise, his receptions consisted of chain-moving gains on a day where Cam Newton managed 201 yards passing. One element missing from Benjamin's game is run-after-catch ability. The Panthers will face the Falcons in Atlanta for the NFC South title next week.
