Wendell was one of four active Rb's for the Eagles last week, and had his first carry that went for negative five yards and a fumble. With the dismissal of Huff, Smallwood is expected to play more on special teams. He had one return last week for 23 yards. Look for him to receive at least one more opportunity to produce on special teams this week.
Sharp has been on the Broncos' practice squad since being waived by the team in late October, but now has an opportunity in New York. The Giants situation at wide receiver behind Sterling Shepard remains in flux, which could lead to some real opportunities for the 23-year-old, but nothing worth fantasy consideration at this point in the season.
The seven total touches were the rookie's most since Week 9. His 27 snaps came just one shy of his career high, while LeGarrette Blount saw just 15. Nevertheless, the Wisconsin product's role in the Eagles' offense is the least valuable among their running back trio. He is not a recommended option in Week 15 against the Giants.
Robinson ranked third among receivers in terms of snaps on Sunday, playing fewer than both Tyreek Hill and Albert Wilson. Given his expected workload limitations moving forward, it's unlikely he will put any meaningful stat lines together the rest of the way.
Lewan underwent an MRI exam Monday that revealed the injury not to be overly serious. It wouldn't be surprising for the 26-year-old to be limited in practice this week as he deals with the back spasms, but at this point he is expected to be available for Week 15.
West was lightly utilized behind Kareem Hunt, but made the most of his workload by scoring on a nice 13-yard run. After dealing with a death in the family, he appears to be back and ready to go the rest of the way. He should give Hunt breathers again next Sunday against the Chargers.
The team initially reported that Johnson had entered the concussion protocol, but head coach Sean McVay indicated that was a communication issue on his part. It's good news for the Rams, who just placed starting cornerback Kayvon Webster on injured reserve with a ruptured Achilles.
Moore sustained the injury on a kickoff return late in the game, but head coach John Harbaugh is optimistic about his status for Week 15. The second-year receiver caught all three targets for 48 yards and hauled in his second touchdown of the season Sunday. Moore remained the Ravens No. 3 receiver in Week 14, although he only outsnapped Michael Campanaro 24-18 on offense.
The contest marked the second straight game in which Blount was only on the field for 15 or fewer snaps, and this time it was far fewer than the 27 Corey Clement saw or 43 for Jay Ajayi. Seven of Blount's touches came in the first half, but in the second half, Philadelphia turned primarily to Ajayi, who was far more effective with the ball. It will be tough to rely on Blount for fantasy production in spite of another favorable matchup Week 15 against the Giants.
Branch left the game during the first half due to the issue but ultimately returned. However, he was unable to play through it and has since been ruled out by the team. The severity of the injury is not known at this time.
The move marks Painter's third stint on the Cardinals' 53-man roster this season. Guard Earl Watford is likely to miss some time with a high-ankle sprain, but Painter should still only serve in a reserve capacity on the offensive line.
