Date Player
12/18/2017 DeShone Kizer, Cle, QB
Despite his poor performance last weekend, Kizer will start again in Week 16.

Analysis: Kizer isn't much of a fantasy option, and the Browns are likely just trying to see what they have for next season.
12/18/2017 Drew Stanton, Ari, QB
Cardinals coach Bruce Arians says he will return to Drew Stanton as starting quarterback for Sunday's home game against the New York Giants.

Analysis: Arians insisted it's nothing against Blaine Gabbert, who started the previous five games, going 2-3. Gabbert was 16 of 41 for 189 yards, lost a fumble and threw an interception in Arizona's 20-15 loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday.
12/18/2017 Paxton Lynch, Den, QB
Lynch is set to return to practice on Wednesday after missing a couple of weeks with an ankle injury.

Analysis: Lynch was 9 of 14 for 41 yards with an interception before leaving a 21-14 loss to the Raiders in the third quarter. The Broncos have yet to name a starter for Week 16 versus the Redskins.
12/18/2017 Seth Roberts, Oak, WR
Seth Roberts had three receptions for 52 yards Sunday in the Oakland Raiders' 20-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
12/18/2017 Dez Bryant, Dal, WR
Dez Bryant had two receptions for 59 yards Sunday in the Dallas Cowboys' 20-17 win over the Oakland Raiders. He added one rush for -4 .

Analysis: Bryant tied a season low with two catches and picked up most of his yardage on a 40-yarder that set up the game-winning field goal. He had double-digit targets five times in the first 10 games but none in the past four.
12/17/2017 Landon Collins, NYG, S
Collins won't return Sunday due to an ankle injury.

Analysis: Collins has been a bright spot for an otherwise dismal Giants team. This no doubt has some ramifications for those in IDP leagues.
12/17/2017 Marqise Lee, Jax, WR
Lee left Sunday's game with an ankle injury and didn't return. According to reports, Lee suffered a sprain.

Analysis: The Jaguars said Monday they expect him to be back for the playoffs.
12/17/2017 Jeremy Maclin, Bal, WR
Maclin injured a knee against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday and will not return, according to a press box announcement.

Analysis: Maclin caught one pass for 22 yards in the first half and did not play after that. He entered the game third on the Ravens with 39 catches for 418 yards and three touchdowns.
12/17/2017 Andrew Luck, Ind, QB
Luck reportedly is planning to resume throwing before determining whether he needs corrective surgery on his right shoulder.

Analysis: Luck's treatment and rehab of his surgically shoulder apparently is going well, sources told ESPN's Chris Mortensen. When he resumes throwing in the near future, those throws will be determined whether he needs corrective surgery in January to address the setbacks that unexpectedly sidelined him for the 2017 season, according to the report.
12/17/2017 Chris Ivory, Jax, RB
Ivory is expected to start Sunday with Leonard Fournette out due to a quad injury.

Analysis: Ivory has totaled 117 yards and a touchdown in his two starts this season.
12/17/2017 Keenan Allen, LAC, WR
Keenan Allen had five receptions for 54 yards Saturday in the Los Angeles Chargers' 30-13 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Analysis: Allen was held under 100 yards for the first time in five games as the Chiefs did an outstanding job on one of the league's hottest players. Allen has had eight targets each of the past two games after he had double digits in the three previous contests. This is already the best season of Allen's career and he'll have a good chance to add to his impressive totals next week against the Jets and in the finale against Oakland.
12/17/2017 Antonio Gates, LAC, TE
Antonio Gates had one reception for 10 yards and one touchdown Saturday in the Los Angeles Chargers' 30-13 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
12/17/2017 Travis Kelce, KC, TE
Travis Kelce had six receptions for 46 yards Saturday in the Kansas City Chiefs' 30-13 win over the Los Angeles Chargers.
12/17/2017 Melvin Gordon, LAC, RB
Melvin Gordon ran for 78 yards and one touchdown on 19 carries Saturday in the Los Angeles Chargers' 30-13 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. He added six receptions for 91 yards.

Analysis: Gordon led the Chargers in both rushing and receiving, totaling a career-high 91 yards through the air. He's rushed for 77, 78 and 78 yards in his last three games with a pair of touchdowns. Gordon's likely to go over the 1,000-yard mark for the first time after he finished with 997 last season.
12/17/2017 Tyrell Williams, LAC, WR
Tyrell Williams had three receptions for 31 yards Saturday in the Los Angeles Chargers' 30-13 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
12/17/2017 Austin Ekeler, LAC, RB
Austin Ekeler ran for 13 yards on two carries Saturday in the Los Angeles Chargers' 30-13 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. He added one reception for six yards and fumbled once.
12/17/2017 Kareem Hunt, KC, RB
Kareem Hunt ran for 155 yards and one touchdown on 24 carries Saturday in the Kansas City Chiefs' 30-13 win over the Los Angeles Chargers. He added seven receptions for 51 yards and one touchdown.

Analysis: Hunt topped 200 yards from scrimmage for the second time this season. His 206 yards represented his second-best performance behind his 246 yards in the season opener against New England. Hunt passed Joe Delaney for the Chiefs’ all-time rookie rushing record. Delaney ran for 1,121 yards in 1981. Hunt has totaled 271 yards rushing on 49 carries with two scores in his last two games.
12/17/2017 Orson Charles, KC, TE
Orson Charles had one reception for 18 yards Saturday in the Kansas City Chiefs' 30-13 win over the Los Angeles Chargers.
12/17/2017 Hunter Henry, LAC, TE
Hunter Henry had three receptions for 28 yards Saturday in the Los Angeles Chargers' 30-13 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
12/17/2017 Tyreek Hill, KC, WR
Tyreek Hill had five receptions for 88 yards and one touchdown Saturday in the Kansas City Chiefs' 30-13 win over the Los Angeles Chargers.

Analysis: Hill's seventh touchdown of the season came on a 64-yard catch in the second quarter. Over his last three games, Hill has 15 receptions on 21 targets for 348 yards and three scores. He's now over 1,000 yards and should be able to pad that number significantly in the final two games against Miami and Denver.
