Duke Johnson Finds The End Zone

Houston Texans running back Duke Johnson scored an early touchdown in Week 17, but finished with just four carries for 12 yards. He added five catches for 45 yards as well.

A.J. McCarron Runs For Touchdown

Houston Texans quarterback A.J. McCarron's spot start for Deshaun Watson in Week 17 didn't go Houston's way, but McCarron did have 39 rushing yards and a score in the contest.

D.J. Chark Reaches 1,000 Yards

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver D.J. Chark ended his second NFL season with just over 1,000 receiving yards after Sunday's four-catch, 34-yard effort against the Indianapolis Colts. While it wasn't the ending that Chark owners wanted, the former LSU Tiger broke out after a disappointing rookie year and should be considered a fantasy WR2 heading into... Read More

Chris Conley Quiet In Week 17

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Chris Conley ended a solid 2019 campaign with a three-catch, 38-yard effort against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 17. Conley had three touchdowns in between Weeks 15 and 16, but wasn't able to replicate that success in the finale. It's hard to know what Conley's role -- if any -- will... Read More

Keelan Cole Ends 2019 With Touchdown

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Keelan Cole caught three passes for 67 yards and a touchdown in his team's Week 17 win over the Indianapolis Colts.

Dede Westbrook Ends Year On High Note

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Dede Westbrook didn't have the kind of breakout 2019 that many surmised that he'd have, but he ended the year on a good note, catching seven passes for 72 yards and a score in the team's Week 17 win over the Colts. If Westbrook is back on this team next year,... Read More

Ryquell Armstead Ends Rookie Year With Touchdown

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Ryquell Armstead never really carved out a role during his rookie campaign, but with Leonard Fournette (flu) out for Week 17, Armstead put up a solid effort. While his 10 carries for 33 yards wasn't too impressive, Armstead did catch five passes for 52 yards and a score in Sunday's win... Read More

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew ended his rookie campaign on a high note, going 27-for-39 for 295 yards with three touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's win over the Indianapolis Colts.

Sony Michel Expected To Play Against Dolphins

Despite being a late addition to the injury report, New England Patriots running back Sony Michel (illness) is expected to suit up on Sunday against the Dolphins for the season finale. With the Patriots needing a win to guarantee they get a first round bye, Michel playing isn't much of a surprise. It's not been... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins Not Expected To Play In Week 17

Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is expected to be active but not take the field against the Titans in Week 17.

A.J. McCarron Expected To Start Week 17

Houston Texans quarterback A.J. McCarron is expected to start on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. The Texans are locked into playing on Wildcard Weekend no matter what happens in Week 17, so it looks like head coach Bill O'Brien is going to play it safe with his key players. McCarron's a solid NFL backup quarterback,... Read More

Marshawn Lynch Expected To Contribute In Week 17

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch hasn't played since last season, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says that Lynch should get between 10 and 15 carries in Sunday's contest against the San Francisco 49ers. The Niners have a strong defense and should make it tough for Lynch to breakout in his return game, but with... Read More

Carlos Hyde Has Some Week 17 Upside

Houston Texans running back Carlos Hyde had one of his three 100-yard games of the season the last time the Texans faced the Tennessee Titans, and while there are concerns that the Texans could rest some key players on Sunday in their second meeting with Tennessee, Hyde has some limited upside in this one. The... Read More

Deshaun Watson Is Risky Week 17 Play

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson's Week 17 outlook is impossibly tough to figure out, as the Texans essentially won't know if they need to play their starters until just before their afternoon kickoff on Sunday against the Titans. A Chiefs win in the early window would give Houston nothing to play for, which could mean... Read More

Dede Westbrook Vanishes In Week 16

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Dede Westbrook caught two passes for five yards in Sunday's loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

Westbrook's role... Read More

D.J. Chark Struggles Against Falcons

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver D.J. Chark was targeted a team-high seven times on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons, but that only turned into two catches for 18 yards for the second-year pro. Chark's been Gardner Minshew's favorite target, but the Falcons managed to effectively shut down that connection. Chark's still the wide receiver to own... Read More

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Devlin Hodges is reportedly on a short leash entering Week 16's meeting with the Jets.

Alexander Mattison Not Expected To Play In Week 16

Minnesota Vikings running back Alexander Mattison (ankle) is unlikely to play on Monday night against the Packers, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. With Dalvin Cook already ruled out, this would leave control of the Vikings backfield to Mike Boone, who scored a pair of touchdowns last week. Boone should be considered an RB2 due to... Read More

Christian Kirk Expected To Play Against Seattle

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Christian Kirk (ankle) is expected to play on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. There's some intrigue to Kirk in this matchup as the Seahawks secondary hasn't been as dominant as they have in past seasons, but Kirk's 2019 campaign has featured a lot of inconsistent play from the second-year wideout. Consider... Read More

Kerryon Johnson Should See Significant Work In Return

Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson is back from the IR, and reports indicate that the Lions plan to give him a significant workload in his first game back.

Jordan Howard Expected To Be Inactive

Philadelphia Eagles running back Jordan Howard (shoulder) is expected to be inactive against the Cowboys in Week 16.

Chris Conley Could Play Key Role In Week 16

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Chris Conley became the team's top option in Week 15 with D.J. Chark (ankle) out, catching four of his eight targets for 49 yards and two scores. Conley's role in Week 16 likely depends on Chark's availability, but if Chark ends up missing the contest, Conley would be an intriguing flex... Read More

Dede Westbrook Has Low Ceiling In Week 16

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Dede Westbrook couldn't take advantage of D.J. Chark (ankle) missing last week's game, with Westbrook catching two passes for 14 yards despite playing over 90 percent of the team's snaps for the first time all season. Chark is looking like he'll play on Sunday against the Falcons, which just increases the... Read More

D.J. Chark Has Solid Upside If Healthy

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver D.J. Chark missed Week 15 with an ankle sprain, and his status for Sunday's game against the Falcons is still unclear.

Running Back ADP Winners and Losers: 2019 Season Review
