NFL Network's Jane Slater reports Ted Ginn (questionable, ribs) is out for Week 15 against the Jets.

Ginn thought he could play through a rib injury but the Saints would rather play it safe by giving him a week to heal up. His absence will open up playing time for Willie Snead and Tommylee Lewis. Ginn's injury also solidifies Michael Thomas as a top-ten play at wide receiver.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Leonard Fournette (quad, ankle) is expected to return in Week 16.

Fournette should only need a week to get healthy. He's dealing with a quad contusion and still not over his ankle issues. This is just Fournette's second missed game, but he's been playing through injuries all season. Jacksonville will go with a T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory committee against Houston.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms Mike Wallace (questionable, ankle) is expected to play in Week 15 against the Browns.

Wallace missed practice early in the week but there was never much doubt over his status. He's coming off consecutive 70-plus yard games and has another plus matchup with Cleveland. Wallace is our No. 36-ranked receiver for Week 15.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Kelvin Benjamin (questionable, knee) is "hopeful" he'll play Week 15 against the Dolphins.

He bowed out of last week's game after aggravating a knee injury, but should be ready to roll after getting in a limited week of practice. Playing at less than 100 percent, Benjamin could have trouble separating against Xavien Howard, who dominated his matchup with Brandin Cooks last week. Consider Benjamin a risky WR3/4.
Dec 17 - 8:05 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Chris Ivory is expected to start Week 15 against the Texans.

He'll get first crack at replacing Leonard Fournette (quad), though T.J. Yeldon will also see work. For what it's worth, Ivory out-touched Yeldon 40-24 in the two games Fournette sat out earlier this year. He'll be in play as a volume-based RB3/flex option for the fantasy semifinals.

Mike Williams missed his lone target in the Chargers' Week 15 loss to the Chiefs.

Including Corey Davis and John Ross, all three of this year's first-round wide receivers have been rookie disappointments. Williams will close out his first NFL campaign as the Chargers' No. 4 wideout behind Keenan Allen, Tyrell Williams and Travis Benjamin.
Dec 17 - 12:07 AM

Tyrell Williams caught 3-of-7 targets for 31 yards in the Chargers' Week 15 loss to the Chiefs.

Philip Rivers targeted Williams on a first-quarter deep pass in Marcus Peters’ coverage, but Williams couldn’t reel it in despite the ball hitting him in the hands. Williams missed an end-zone target in double coverage later in the half. Williams got lost on another third-quarter deep route and Rivers’ pass was again picked off by Peters, who returned it deep into Chargers territory. All season, Williams has been a low-volume, situational deep threat. He finally got volume on Saturday night and flubbed it.
Dec 17 - 12:05 AM

Austin Ekeler managed 13 yards on two carries and caught his lone target for six yards in the Chargers' Week 15 loss to the Chiefs.

A goat in the Chargers’ three-point Week 10 loss to the Jaguars for losing a late-game fumble, Ekeler lost another back-breaking fourth-quarter fumble against the Chiefs when he was stripped by Marcus Peters on an outlet pass with Los Angeles down 20-13. The Chargers wound up losing 30-13. Expect Melvin Gordon to handle a fuller workload when the Bolts visit the Jets next week.
Dec 17 - 12:00 AM

Hunter Henry caught 3-of-3 targets for 28 yards in the Chargers' Week 15 loss to the Chiefs.

Henry capitalized on all of his opportunities, but he didn't get enough in a game where Philip Rivers forced far too many passes downfield into double coverage and didn't take easier throws to Henry in the short and intermediate areas. It may be too late for owners who were counting on Henry for a big Week 15 game, but a Week 16 bounce back is likely against the Jets' soft tight end coverage.
Dec 16 - 11:59 PM

Antonio Gates caught 1-of-3 targets for a 10-yard touchdown in the Chargers' Week 15 loss to the Chiefs.

Escaping Chiefs ILB Derrick Johnson’s red-zone coverage, Gates’ third-quarter ten-yard touchdown catch gave him 113 for his career, most all time by an NFL tight end. Entering this game, the future first-ballot Hall of Famer had not hit pay dirt since Week 2. Philip Rivers and Gates have now hooked up for 86 career TDs, second most among NFL duos behind only Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison (114). Gates remains involved in scoring-position packages, but he has taken a deserved backseat to Hunter Henry. Gates has 20 catches through 14 games.
Dec 16 - 11:56 PM

Melvin Gordon rushed 19 times for 78 yards and a touchdown and caught 6-of-8 targets for 91 yards in the Chargers' Week 15 loss to the Chiefs.

Gordon powered in from two yards out for his seventh rushing TD of the season late in the first half. Gordon’s longest play from scrimmage came early in the third quarter when he leaked out of the backfield and was left uncovered by the Chiefs’ linebackers for an easy 49-yard catch and run. In a losing effort, Gordon led the Chargers in both rushing and receiving, while No. 2 back Austin Ekeler lost a back-breaking fourth-quarter fumble. Expect another high-volume effort from Gordon against the Jets in Week 16.
Dec 16 - 11:55 PM

Travis Kelce caught 6-of-7 targets for 46 yards in the Chiefs' Week 15 win over the Chargers.

Kelce committed his second drop inside the ten-yard line in as many weeks late in the first quarter. The good news is it was his lone missed target of the night in an efficient, chain-moving effort that lacked big plays. Kelce will get one of the best tight end matchups possible when Kansas City hosts Miami next.
Dec 16 - 11:53 PM

Tyreek Hill caught 5-of-6 targets for 88 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 15 win over the Chargers.

Hill put the Chiefs up 10-0 with 6:30 left in the first half by dusting Chargers shutdown CB Casey Hayward for a 64-yard score on a straight go route, giving TyFreak his seventh touchdown catch of the season and putting him over 1,000 receiving yards. All seven of Hill’s touchdowns have come from outside the red zone. Keep Hill rolling as a volatile WR1 in Week 16 against the Dolphins.
Dec 16 - 11:49 PM

Philip Rivers completed 20-of-36 passes for 227 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions in the Chargers' Week 15 loss to the Chiefs.

A gambler attempting high-risk throws into double coverage all night, Rivers was made to pay on a third-quarter deep attempt intended for Tyrell Williams when Williams lost track of the ball in the air and Marcus Peters easily picked off Rivers’ pass, returning it deep into Chargers territory. It was Rivers’ first interception in 164 pass attempts, previously the NFL’s longest active streak. Rivers threw his second pick in the fourth quarter on a forced fourth-down throw; FS Ron Parker was on the receiving end. Rivers’ third interception occurred in garbage time on yet another pick by Peters. On the season, six of Rivers’ ten INTs have come against Kansas City. Rivers will be a low-end QB1 play when the Bolts visit the Jets in Week 16.
Dec 16 - 11:48 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports DeAndre Hopkins (toe, questionable) is expected to play Week 15 against the Jaguars.

Coach Bill O'Brien said as much on Friday, but it is still good to hear after Hopkins sat out the final two days of practice this week. Less than 100 percent with T.J. Yates at quarterback going against the toughest pass defense in the league, things look grim for Nuk, but he has earned every-week starter status.
