Bengals' Joe Mixon (concussion) returns to practice on Thursday
Cincinnati Bengals' running back Joe Mixon (concussion) returned to practice Thursday.
Mixon is certainly not a guarantee to play on Sunday, but this is a good step towards that goal after missing practice on Wednesday. Even if he is good to go, Mixon faces a tough task in Week 15 as the Bengals take on the Minnesota Vikings.
Our models currently have Mixon down for 6.1 FanDuel points with 40.3 total yards and 0.2 touchdowns. His salary has been set at $6,700 for this weekend.
Tampa Bay's O.J. Howard looking to build off strong Week 14 in Monday night showcase
Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end O.J. Howard is projected for 2.5 catches, 28.8 yards and 0.34 touchdowns in a Monday night matchup with the Atlanta Falcons this week.
Last week, the rookie tight end had one of his better games of the year. On six targets, he turned four catches into 54 yards and a touchdown. The Buccaneers still lost the game and Howard lost a fumble, but it's still encouraging for the 23-year-old's development. He's now managed at least three catches and 50 yards in three of his last four.
With a price increase of $100 this week, Howard comes in at $5,200 for this week's MNF-inclusive slates. He's projected for 6.2 FanDuel points and ranks as our TE14 in Week 15.
Saints' Ted Ginn Jr. held without a touchdown in five straight
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. is projected for 0.37 touchdowns on 3.2 catches and 4.3 targets in a Week 15 matchup against the New York Jets.
Ginn has been very unproductive over the last two games. He has just four catches for 37 yards and zero touchdowns over the pair of contests. Beyond that, Ginn has been held scoreless for five straight games and will look to get in the endzone against a below-average Jets pass defense.
Against a Jets team ranked 25th in defensive pass efficiency, Ginn is projected at 8.5 FanDuel points while running $5,400 on this week's slate of games.
Jets place Jeremy Kerley on roster exemption list
The New York Jets have placed wide receiver Jeremy Kerley on the team's roster exemption list.
Kerley can be kept on the list until Monday. The wideout had just wrapped up a four-game suspension for violating the league's policy against performance-enhancing drugs. If and when he's activated, Kerley would serve as the team's third option behind Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse.
numberFire's models project Kerley to add 4.1 catches, 51.0 yards and 0.48 touchdowns over 5.5 targets the remainder of the year.
Raiders' Jared Cook (wrist) limited in practice Wednesday
Oakland Raiders tight end Jared Cook was limited in practice on Wednesday, according to Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Cook was a new addition to the Raiders' Week 15 injury report. In fact, it's the first time he's appeared on it since Week 3. Still, his limited participation tells us that he should be a go against the Dallas Cowboys.
At $6,100, Cook is projected for 8.5 FanDuel points on 5.7 targets and 3.6 catches in this week's matchup.
Damien Williams (shoulder) remains sidelined at Dolphins practice
Miami Dolphins running back Damien Williams remained out of practice on Wednesday due to a shoulder injury.
Williams has not practice or played since dinging up his shoulder in Week 12. In his stead, Kenyan Drake has made the most of the opportunity and is poised to remain the team's top back even when Williams returns.
numberFire's models have Williams down for 16.2 rushes, 45.4 rushing yards and 0.13 touchdowns over the remainder of the 2017 season.
