NFL Recent Player News
|11/29/2015||A.J. Green, Cin, WR|
|Green hauled in six passes for 61 yards and two TDs Sunday against St. Louis.
Analysis: It was a big game for Green, who had been relatively underwhelming for fantasy owners the last three weeks without scoring a TD.
|11/29/2015||Philip Rivers, SD, QB|
|Rivers completed 29 of 43 passes for 300 yards and threw four touchdown passes Sunday.
Analysis: Rivers had his left ankle checked in the locker room at halftime but played through the pain in a hostile environment in Jacksonville. He has won his last five games vs. the Jags.
|11/29/2015||Tyler Eifert, Cin, TE|
|Eifert caught three passes for 40 yards and his 12th TD of the season Sunday against the Rams before exiting with a stinger, though he said he was OK afterward.
Analysis: Eifert leads all non-quarterbacks with 12 TDs on the season and should feast next week against Cleveland assuming he'll be able to play.
|11/29/2015||T.Y. Hilton, Ind, WR|
|Hilton had six catches for 95 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay.
Analysis: The Colts had to air it out in this one and Hilton benefited with one of his best games of the season. Injuries and shaky QB play have led to an up-and-down campaign for the wideout, but his arrow appears to be pointing up.
|11/29/2015||Blake Bortles, Jax, QB|
|Bortles completed 30 of 49 passes for 329 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception Sunday.
Analysis: Bortles has been a stud with 22 TD passes but his 13 picks are too much as are his 34 sacks. Still, he stands on the cusp of fantasy greatness for 2016.
|11/29/2015||T.J. Yeldon, Jax, RB|
|Yeldon ran nine times for 36 yards and caught four passes for 46 on Sunday.
Analysis: Yeldon did not reach the end zone and was not given enough chances in the red zone, much to the chagrin of fantasy owners.
|11/29/2015||Melvin Gordon, SD, RB|
|Gordon ran 14 times for 60 yards and caught five passes for 20 on Sunday.
Analysis: Gordon has hardly been effective with 510 rushing yards.
|11/29/2015||Frank Gore, Ind, RB|
|Gore was held to 24 yards on 14 carries in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay.
Analysis: The 32-year-old has been showing his age during the season's second half, averaging a mediocre 52.8 yards and 2.5 per carry over the past four games. He's barely a fantasy option right now.
|11/29/2015||Antonio Gates, SD, TE|
|Gates caught four balls for 53 yards and two scores Sunday.
Analysis: Gates scored for the first time since the Pittsburgh game so he has a little something left in the aging fantasy tank.
|11/29/2015||DeAndre Hopkins, Hou, WR|
|Hopkins turned in an underwhelming performance Sunday against the Saints.
Analysis: Given the huge year he's having and the fact that he was up against New Orleans' dismal defense, Hopkins' five-catch, 36-yard performance was quite disappointing. He'll face a tougher assignment next week at Buffalo, but he's been relatively matchup-proof this season.
|11/29/2015||Stevie Johnson, SD, WR|
|Johnson caught seven balls for 92 yards and a score Sunday.
Analysis: Johnson ended a pathetic six-game streak in which he failed to score.
|11/29/2015||Matt Hasselbeck, Ind, QB|
|Hasselbeck directed the Colts to another win with another efficient performance on Sunday.
Analysis: The 40-year-old improved to 4-0 as a starter with a sharp 315-yard, two-touchdown, no-interception effort against Tampa Bay. Hasselbeck has thrown for two touchdowns in three of his four outings, and his play has allowed the Colts to not have to rush Andrew Luck back from his injuries.
|11/29/2015||Julius Thomas, Jax, TE|
|Thomas caught nine balls for 116 yards and a score Sunday.
Analysis: Thomas is starting to get targeted more by Blake Bortles so he could come up big down the stretch as a TE2.
|11/29/2015||Allen Robinson, Jax, WR|
|Robinson caught five balls for 56 yards and a score Sunday.
Analysis: Robinson has 55 receptions on 109 targets so he needs to take better advantage of his opportunities.
|11/29/2015||Allen Hurns, Jax, WR|
|Hurns has been released after he went to the hospital for precautionary measures. Hurns left the field on a stretcher with 3:44 remaining and was later ruled out with a concussion.
Analysis: Hurns was evaluated for a concussion. He caught four balls for 42 yards Sunday.
|11/29/2015||Justin Houston, KC, LB|
|Houston exited Sunday's win over Buffalo with a sprained knee.
Analysis: The 2014 NFL sack champion did not return after sustaining the injury in the first quarter. Consider his status for next week's key divisional clash at Oakland in question.
|11/29/2015||Alfred Blue, Hou, RB|
|Blue ran 16 times for 77 yards and a TD Sunday against New Orleans.
Analysis: Blue had a good day but still isn't worth much more than flex consideration at this point.
|11/29/2015||Mark Ingram, NO, RB|
|Ingram ran only nine times for 52 yards but added six catches for 45 yards against the Texans on Sunday.
Analysis: It was a decent if underwhelming day for Ingram, who failed to find the end zone for the fourth straight game.
|11/29/2015||Drew Brees, NO, QB|
|Brees played one of his worst games of the season Sunday at Houston.
Analysis: Brees was 25 of 44 for 228 yards, failing to find the end zone for the first time this season and throwing his 10th interception.
|11/29/2015||Garrett Celek, SF, TE|
|Celek has been carted off the field with 3:46 left in the first quarter with a left ankle injury.
Analysis: Celek was injured while blocking downfield and grabbed at his lower leg when he went down Sunday.
