Broncos DE Derek Wolfe (illness) is not expected to play in Thursday nights game vs the Chargers. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
Expert Advice: Wolfe suffered a seizure on the team bus just before Week 13 and was just recently released from the hospital. It is unlikely that he plays again in the regular season and has to be highly questionable for the Broncos playoff run as well.
RB - Jac
Jaguars will place RB Justin Forsett on Injured Reserve, ending his season. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
Expert Advice: Jordan Todman and the recently signed Delone Carter will backup the injured Maurice Jones-Drew.
WR - Jac
Jaguars will place WR Stephen Burton on Injured Reserve, ending his season. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
Expert Advice: Burton's concussion that he suffered in Week 10 against the Titans must have been far more severe than initially thought. Granted this move was likely made in order to shuffle up the roster due to injuries to Maurice Jones-Drew among others.
RB - Jac
Last Friday, Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew said he would 'definitely' play in Week 15 after injuring his hamstring in Thursday night's victory over the Texans.The weekend seems to have clouded the outlook up a little bit. Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times-Union reports that Jones-Drew said Monday that he hopes to return to practice on Friday, which is a schedule for the week that lends itself to a questionable designation more than a definite one. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
Expert Advice: Listen, I've hosted the show right after MJD for two years now and if there is one thing I have learned from listening to MJD's outlook on himself it is to not buy a single word of what he says. Last year he had a Lisfranc injury and told us that he would be back 'in a couple of weeks.' Please don't count on him this week and if he somehow manages to play consider it an early Christmas Present.
DEF - Ari
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Tyrann Mathieu tore both the ACL and the LCL in yesterday's ugly collision.Tearing multiple ligaments complicates any recovery, so it might not be as simple as assuming he'll be well when the Cardinals start back next summer. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
Expert Advice: Mathieu has been one of the best rookies in football this season truly living up to his 'Honey Badger' moniker. Not only had he been one of the top performing safety's in the game but also graded out as the single best CB in football so far this year as well. His loss will have a significant impact on the Cardinals defense.
TE - NE
Update: It has been confirmed that Rob Gronkowski tore his ACL yesterday, but a source says the MRI taken also revealed a torn MCL. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
Expert Advice: Gronk faces yet another off-season of rehab this time on his torn apart knee. He has already had 4 arm surgeries, back surgery and is just 24 years old. At a certain point you wonder just how much his body can handle and without question for how long?
WR - Bal
Brandon Stokley suffered a head injury during Sunday's game against the Vikings. There was no update on his status after the game. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
Expert Advice: I watched every single snap of this game and for the life of me cannot tell you exactly where or when Stokley even played. He had one catch for 2 yards but even that is completely lost upon anyone who watched the game.
TE - NO
Josh Hill left the game vs. Carolina with a hamstring injury and did not return. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
Expert Advice: The Saints third string TE isn't heavily relied upon but has proven to be an adequate pass catching option when needed.
TE - Was
Niles Paul left in the fourth quarter with a hip injury Week 14. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
Expert Advice: Why not? Every other Redskins TE gets injured in every game, why not Paul? He caught one pass for 25 yards on Sunday which made him one of the Redskins leading receivers.
TE - NE
MRI confirms torn ACL for Rob Gronkowski, per league source. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
Expert Advice: This latest news officially puts an end to Gronkowski's frustrating season and leaves a huge hole in the Patriots passing game. Expect Matt Mulligan to take over at tight end for the remainder of the season, but he will be used more as a blocker than in the passing game. The only fantasy value Mulligan holds at this point is the fact that he has both a hall of fame coach and quarterback on the same sideline as him and that doesn't show up in the box score.
DEF - NYJ
New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie suffered a head injury in a 37-27 win over the visiting Oakland Raiders, the team announced after Sunday's game. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
Expert Advice: Cromartie was involved in a violent head-to-head collision in Sunday's game, so it is no surprise he is now dealing with a head injury. The extent of the injury is unknown at this time, so consider him day-to-day for the time being.
WR - Cle
Updated: Josh Gordon's 774 receiving yards in the past four games is a league record, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
Expert Advice: Gordon continues to get the job done, regardless of the matchup, which makes him a must-start the rest of the way. If the Browns can either trade for a running back this offseason or take a chance on someone in the draft, Gordon could become an even better player if he attached less attention. So owners in dynasty leagues look to have the next Megatron as it stands right now, which could mean a keeper for at least a decade.
RB - Car
Jonathan Stewart will have an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of his knee injury suffered in Sunday nights game vs. the Saints. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
Expert Advice: Even if Stewart is healthy enough to return to action in Week 15, he should remain far away from fantasy starting lineups. Stewart missed the first eight weeks with a leg injury and taking into consideration his inability to stay on the field, he can pretty much be forgotten about at this point in the season.
