Arizona Sports 98.7's Mike Jurecki reports the Cardinals have "reached out" to Blaine Gabbert about a contract extension.

GM Steve Keim said Monday there is not "any question" the team would like to have Gabbert back. The former first-rounder signed a one-year deal in May to be the No. 3 quarterback, but injuries to both Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton thrust him into the starting role and perhaps even more. With Palmer's future uncertain, the Cardinals are in desperate need for at the very least a bridge quarterback, and it looks like they think Gabbert can be that guy. He certainly looked the part in his first two starts including an impressive performance against Jacksonville, but he has looked a lot more like Blaine Gabbert the last two weeks. Still, it makes sense to keep him around as Arizona searches for their quarterback of the future.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said he expects T.J. Yates to start Week 15 against the Jaguars.

This always appeared to be the likely outcome after Tom Savage suffered a nasty-looking concussion against the 49ers. Yates played relatively well after entering the game, hooking up with DeAndre Hopkins for two touchdowns, but he will face a considerably more difficult test this week in Jacksonville. The Jaguars DST will certainly be highly owned in DFS.

Vikings LT Riley Reiff (ankle) was spotted in a walking boot following the Week 14 loss to the Panthers.

Reiff limped off the field in the third quarter before riding a cart into the locker room. Coach Mike Zimmer did not have an update after the game, but the boot is obviously a concern. With RT Mike Remmers still sidelined with a back injury and C Pat Elflein dealing with a shoulder issue, the Vikings suddenly have big questions along the offensive line heading into a matchup with the Bengals this week.

NBC Sports Boston's Phil Perry reports Chris Hogan (shoulder, questionable) will play Monday night against the Dolphins.

ESPN's Mike Reiss reported the same on Sunday. Trusting players coming back from a long injury layoff is always a risk, but the Patriots need Hogan to play a big role with Rob Gronkowski suspended. Hogan will be an upside WR3 on Monday night.

Giants interim coach Steve Spagnuolo expects Eli Apple (personal, hip) to return Week 15 against the Eagles.

Apple has been sidelined since Week 10 because of a personal issue and a hip injury, but there is reportedly more going on behind the scenes. Apple reportedly threatened to leave the facility after being called out in a team meeting after Week 10, the last game he was active, and ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports the corner is "disliked within the organization." With the GM who drafted him, Jerry Reese, no longer around, the Giants could look to move on this offseason.

Jets coach Todd Bowles said Bryce Petty will start if Josh McCown (broken hand) cannot play Week 15 against the Saints.

It makes sense as Petty has been the No. 2 quarterback all season and replaced McCown against the Broncos. Petty was terrible in relief, however, and it would make sense for the Jets to see how bad Christian Hackenberg actually is. If McCown's season is over, both Petty and Hackenberg should see snaps down the stretch.

Greg Olsen played 59-of-64 (92 percent) snaps Week 14 against the Vikings.

Olsen briefly left after getting his surgically-repaired foot rolled up, but he only ended up missing a few snaps. The snap share is good to see, but Olsen was only targeted once in the win and did not come down with the pass. Coach Ron Rivera said after the game Olsen's "role will expand," but it will be tough to trust him as a starting option in the fantasy semifinals.

Jesse James caught 10-of-12 targets for 97 yards in Week 14 against Baltimore.

This was easily his best game of the year. James and Vance McDonald were both heavily involved on a night Ben Roethlisberger threw for 500-plus yards. McDonald looks likely to miss time with a shoulder injury, so James could have some low-end streaming value in Week 15.
Dec 11 - 12:38 AM

Ben Watson was held without a catch in Week 14 against the Steelers.

He had just one target. It's a step back after Watson found the end-zone last week. Watson should be avoided for a Week 15 matchup with Cleveland.
Dec 11 - 12:36 AM

Martavis Bryant caught 6-of-10 targets for 33 yards in Week 14 against Baltimore.

Bryant was the No. 2 receiver with JuJu Smith-Schuster sidelined. He had a quiet night despite double-digit targets and finished with the same amount of yards as Eli Rogers. Bryant will be relegated to No. 3 duties with Smith-Schuster returning in Week 15
Dec 11 - 12:35 AM

Jeremy Maclin caught 3-of-11 targets for 27 yards in Week 14 against the Steelers.

It was a highly ineffective game from Maclin. He came into the night questionable with a back issue and wasn't fully healthy. Maclin was injured on the second last play of the game. He'll likely miss practice time this week.
Dec 11 - 12:32 AM

Mike Wallace caught 3-of-5 targets for 72 yards in Week 14 against the Steelers.

Wallace led the Ravens in receiving, but didn't see a huge target share. He did most of his damage on a 40-yard catch. Wallace has had a solid floor over the last month with at least 45 yards in four straight games. He'll be a WR3 for Week 15 against Cleveland.
Dec 11 - 12:30 AM

Antonio Brown caught 11-of-18 passes for 213 yards in Week 14 against Baltimore.

Brown was a huge mismatch for Ravens CB Brandon Carr. He got open deep on multiple plays with a three catches over 30 yards. Brown was held out of the end-zone, but set up the game-winning field goal on Pittsburgh's final drive of the fourth quarter. It's another huge yardage game for Brown. He'll be the top receiver play in Week 15 for a potential shootout with the Patriots.
Dec 11 - 12:26 AM

Danny Woodhead caught 4-of-5 passes for 29 yards in Week 14 against the Steelers.

He had just two carries for seven yards. Woodhead tied for the second most targets behind Jeremy Maclin. It's another nondescript game for Woodhead, who hasn't had over 30 receiving yards the last three weeks. Woodhead hasn't been much of a factor since returning from injury. He's not more than a low-end PPR FLEX for Week 15.
Dec 11 - 12:23 AM

Alex Collins had 18 carries for 120 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the Steelers.

He added two catches for 46 yards. Collins continued to stay hot as Baltimore's feature back. He broke multiple tackles and scored on an 18-yard run inside the final two minutes of the first half for his touchdown. He could have had another TD, but was vultured by Buck Allen twice in the red-zone. Collins now has five touchdowns in his last four games. He'll be an RB2 for a Week 15 matchup with Cleveland.
