Jason Witten caught 4-of-5 passes for 47 yards in Week 15 against Oakland.

Witten did most of his damage in the first half, but wasn't much of a factor in a run-heavy gamescript. He's been trending up with at least 40 yards or a touchdown the last four weeks. Witten gets a matchup with Seattle in Week 16.
Dec 18 - 12:32 AM

Jared Cook caught 2-of-4 passes for 17 yards in Week 15 against Dallas.

It was a rough night for Cook, who struggled with penalties and drops. He had a touchdown overturned on offensive pass interference. Cook has been streaky with under 30 yards four of the last five games. He's a boom-or-bust streamer for Week 16 against the Eagles.
Dec 18 - 12:30 AM

Seth Roberts caught 3-of-5 passes for 52 yards in Week 15 against Dallas.

Roberts led Oakland in receiving on a night Derek Carr threw for just 171 yards. His only highlight was a 28-yard catch on the opening play of the fourth quarter. Roberts has seen more snaps the last three weeks, but it hasn't led to fantasy value. Even if Amari Cooper doesn't return, Roberts should be avoided in Week 16.
Dec 18 - 12:28 AM

Terrance Williams caught 3-of-5 passes for 19 yards in Week 15 against Oakland.

His five targets tied for a team high. Williams has yet to score a touchdown and has been held under 25 yards the last three weeks. He remains off the streaming radar.
Dec 18 - 12:25 AM

Dez Bryant caught 2-of-4 targets for 59 yards in Week 15 against Oakland.

Bryant was held catchless in the first half. He got almost all his production on a 40-yard catch that set up the game-winning field goal late in the fourth quarter. It was just Bryant's second 20-plus yard catch on the year. Bryant should benefit from Ezekiel Elliott returning next week. He's a WR2 against Seattle's injured secondary.
Dec 18 - 12:23 AM

Michael Crabtree caught 7-of-17 passes for 39 yards and two touchdown in Week 15 against Dallas.

Crabtree was targeted heavily with Amari Cooper out. He got most of his catches on check downs, though he drew a deep pass interference call late that put Oakland in position to win. Both of Crabtree's touchdowns were goal-line passes from Derek Carr. With Cooper not a lock to return next week, Crabtree is a WR1 for a matchup with the Eagles.
Dec 18 - 12:19 AM

Rod Smith rushed seven times for 13 yards and a touchdown and caught three passes for 21 yards in Week 15 against Oakland.

Smith was a non-factor in the run game, but managed to convert a goal-line carry for a touchdown. He had only three targets after going over 100 yards receiving last week. Smith won't have much of a role with Ezekiel Elliott returning to every down status. He's just a low-volume change-of-pace.
Dec 18 - 12:15 AM

Marshawn Lynch rushed 16 times for 76 yards and caught 3-of-4 passes for 16 yards in Week 15 against Dallas.

Lynch was shut down early, rushing for just 26 yards at the half. He came on late, but was held without a touchdown despite multiple red-zone trips. Lynch has put together a strong second half, rushing for 60-plus yards or a TD in seven straight games. He'll remain an RB2 for Week 16 against the Eagles.
Dec 18 - 12:11 AM

Alfred Morris had 16 carries for 61 yards in Week 15 against Oakland.

Morris settled for a lot of short runs. He got the majority of early-down and short-yardage work, but had a touchdown vultured by Rod Smith. Morris had multiple goal-chances late he couldn’t convert. With Ezekiel Elliott returning next week, Morris will fade into a backup role for the final two games.
Dec 18 - 12:06 AM

Derek Carr completed 21-of-38 passes for 171 yards and two touchdowns in Week 15 against Dallas.

Carr continued his decline, struggling to get anything going early before making a comeback in the second half. Both of his touchdowns were goal-line passes to Michael Crabtree. Despite the TDs, Carr ended the game with an epic fail, fumbling out of the end-zone with 31-seconds remaining for a touchback. It effectively puts an end to Oakland's playoff chances. Carr will remain just a QB2 for a matchup with the Eagles in Week 16.
Dec 18 - 12:02 AM

Dak Prescott completed 18-of-27 passes for 212 yards and two interceptions in Week 15 against the Raiders.

He added six carries for 32 yards and a rushing touchdown. Prescott got off to a bad start, throwing an interception on the opening drive. He threw a second interception on the Cowboys’ first drive of the second half before settling down. Prescott’s rushing TD was on a broken play from five yards out. Outside of last week's win, Prescott has struggled without Ezekiel Elliott, averaging just 191 YPG with a 5:5 TD/INT ratio over his last six games. Prescott won't be more than a QB2 in Week 16 against Seattle.
Dec 17 - 11:58 PM

Cowboys LT Tyron Smith left Week 15 against the Raiders with a knee injury.

Smith came into the game with a back injury. He sprained his knee late in the third quarter and is questionable to return. Byron Bell replaced Smith at left tackle.
Dec 17 - 10:46 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Rex Burkhead has avoided an ACL tear and serious knee injury.

It sounds like Burkhead and the Patriots have caught another break this Sunday. Per Schefter, Burkhead could miss some time, but it doesn't seem to be something that will keep Burkhead out for an extended period. Burkhead should be okay to return for a playoff run for the 11-3 Patriots. In the meantime, Dion Lewis and James White will handle backfield duties sans Burkhead.
Dec 17 - 9:12 PM

Raiders LT Donald Penn was forced from Week 15 against Dallas with a foot injury.

He's done for the night. Penn was injured after getting rolled up on in the first quarter. Vadal Alexander replaced Penn, with Marshall Newhouse moving to left tackle.
Dec 17 - 9:10 PM

Jesse James hauled in 2-of-5 targets for seven yards in the Steelers' Week 15 loss to the Patriots.

James was a mortal lock to take a step back after a career-high 97 yards last week, but he almost saved his fantasy day with a 10-yard score which appeared to give the Steelers the win. The ball moved when James hit the ground, however, and the obvious catch was reversed. Ben Roethlisberger threw a game-ending interception two plays later. Even in a good matchup, James will remain just a touchdown-or-bust streamer against the Texans on Christmas Day.
