Falcons and Julio Jones (hip) are optimistic that he will play Sunday.

Jones enters Week 16 as questionable after missing Friday's practice as he continues to deal with a hip injury sustained against the Packers two weeks ago. If able to play, fantasy owners should expect a big game form their top wide receiver considering the Saints are ranked 25th in the league in fantasy points allowed to opposing wide receivers this season.

Nick Novack kicked a game-winning 40-yard field goal in his lone attempt and successfully converted all five of his extra-points as the Chargers beat the 49ers 38-35 in overtime on Saturday.

Novak received only one field goal attempt on Saturday night but he managed to make it one worth bragging about as he carried the Chargers to a three-point win in overtime. However, it is highly unlikely he was of any help to fantasy owners, considering he has now totaled only 14 points over his last three games.

Corey Liuget recorded two tackles and recovered a fumble in the end zone for a touchdown during the Chargers' 38-35 overtime win against the 49ers on Saturday.

Liuget has been far from a fantasy contributor this season, but has managed to pick up the pace as the season comes to an end as he is now sitting on 55 combined tackles and 3.5 sacks on the year.

Malcom Floyd caught four passes on 10 targets for 50 yards and a touchdown during hte Chargers' overtime win against the 49ers on Saturday.

Floyd converted only 40.0 percent of the passes thrown his way on Saturday but did manage to record his sixth touchdown of the season in the Chargers overtime win. With Keenan Allen out of the picture, Floyd becomes the team's deep threat and could make for an interesting start next week for those that play the full 17 week schedule with a matchup against the Chiefs on deck.

Dontrelle Inman caught seven passes on nine targets for 79 yards against the 49ers on Saturday.

Inman logged his first catches of the season on Saturday night as he was able to convert all but two targets for 79 yards. With Keenan Allen out for the remainder of the season Inman is going to continue to see increased snaps, although he is far from being a fantasy contributor after just one game.

Antonio Gates caught seven passes on nine targets for 92 yards and two touchdowns during the Chargers' 38-35 overtime win over the 49ers on Saturday.

Gates has now hauled in three touchdowns over his last two games as he continues to be one of the better tight ends to own this season as he is now sitting with 12 touchdowns on the year. Now that Keenan Allen will be out for the rest of the season fantasy owners can expect Gates to continues to see plenty of targets in the team's last regular season game against the Chiefs.

Eddie Royal caught 10 passes on 12 targets for 94 yards and a touchdown against the 49ers on Saturday.

Royal received a season-high in both targets (12) and receptions (10) on Saturday night as he played a major role in the Chargers comeback win. However, the Chiefs held Royal to just one receptions for 20 yards in their previous meeting so it is hard to trust him as a solid fantasy option heading into Week 17.

Branden Oliver carried the ball 13 times for 53 yards and caught three passes for 28 yards during the Chargers' win over the 49ers on Saturday.

21 Dec, 05:35 AM

Philip Rivers completed 33-of-54 passes for 356 yards with four touchdowns and three interceptions during the Chargers 38-35 overtime win over the 49ers on Saturday.

21 Dec, 05:34 AM

Anquan Boldin caught seven passes on nine targets for 61 yards during San Francisco's 38-35 loss to the Chargers on Saturday.

Colin Kaepernick didn't throw the ball much on Saturday night, but when he did, he was looking for Anquan Boldin. The veteran wideout has had a fairly solid season and is just 19 yards away from 1,000 yards--a number he should reach next week. Boldin obviously has some gas left in the tank and will be back next year for a thirteenth season.
