What It Means:

The interception was an absolutely atrocious decision near the goal line with only a few seconds remaining in the first half, as Wilson scrambled around outside the pocket and then blindly hurled the ball across the field right into Eric Kendricks' hands. He's thrown for 257 total yards over the past two games. Wilson and the Seahawks visit the San Francisco 49ers in Week 15.

What It Means:

Cousins also lost a fumble that was scooped for a score late in the fourth quarter. He managed to boost his line in garbage time on the game's final drive after entering halftime with just 27 passing yards, but Cousins was constantly under pressure and largely ineffective for the majority of the evening. He's now been held below 210 passing yards in two consecutive games. The Vikings host the Miami Dolphins in Week 15.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill's heel injury is "nothing serious" and he is "day-to-day," reports Adam Schefter of ESPN.

What It Means:

This is encouraging after Hill told NBC's Peter King the injury was "bad." He played through the injury in Sunday's win over the Baltimore Ravens, finishing with 8 catches for 139 yards on 14 targets. The Chiefs face the Los Angeles Chargers on Thursday night in Week 15, so Hill's status will be something to keep an eye on.

Hill scored 18.5 FanDuel points on Sunday, compared to numberFire's Week 14 projection of 17.0 FanDuel points. He has 74 receptions (114 targets) for 1,258 yards and 11 touchdowns this season.

Joe Flacco (hip) likely to be involved for Ravens against Buccaneers

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco will "be part of the game plan" versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 15 if healthy, head coach John Harbaugh said.

What It Means:

Flacco's role "could entail anything right now," Harbaugh added. Lamar Jackson did fine versus the Kansas City Chiefs in an overtime loss on Sunday, but it's possible that both quarterbacks are involved versus the Bucs. Flacco hasn't played since Week 9.

Flacco was averaging 15.9 FanDuel points over nine games before the injury, with 273.9 yards per contest, 12 touchdowns, and 6 interceptions.

Kenneth Dixon to see more work for Ravens moving forward

Baltimore Ravens running back Kenneth Dixon's role is expected to grow going forward, head coach John Harbaugh said Monday.

What It Means:

Dixon was out-touched by Gus Edwards 16-9 in Sunday's overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, but he out-gained Edwards 80-67. The Ravens host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 15, but the backfield's fantasy outlook won't be as bright if Joe Flacco (hip) is named the starter.

Dixon scored 14.5 FanDuel points in Week 14, significantly out-performing numberFire's expectation of 1.2 FanDuel points. He has 29 carries for 140 yards and 2 touchdowns and 2 catches (2 targets) for 27 scoreless yards in three games this season.

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson "should be okay" for Week 15 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, head coach John Harbaugh said Monday.

What It Means:

Jackson appeared to get banged up on a sack in overtime during Sunday's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Joe Flacco (hip) is expected to be healthy enough to return, but Harbaugh didn't indicate who would be the Ravens' starter. The first-round pick completed 13-of-24 attempts for 124 yards and 2 touchdowns and rushed 13 times for 71 yards with a lost fumble in Week 14.

Lamar finished with 19.0 FanDuel points, compared to numberFire's weekly projection of 22.5 FanDuel points. He's averaging 150.0 passing yards and 84.0 rushing yards as a starter while accounting for 5 touchdowns and 5 turnovers.

What It Means:

McCoy made an early exit from Sunday's loss to the New York Jets on Sunday after injuring his hamstring on the Bills' first drive. Consider him questionable for Week 15 versus the Detroit Lions. Chris Ivory and Isaiah McKenzie split work after McCoy left.

He is completing 67.0% of his throws and averaging 8.0 yards per play, and has thrown 18 touchdowns and 6 interceptions.

Drew Brees quiet again as Saints sink Buccaneers

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees completed 24-of-31 passes for 201 yards with 1 touchdown and 1 interception in a 28-14, Week 14 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

He's also thrown an interception in three straight outings (81 attempts) after only throwing 1 over the first 10 games (334 attempts). The Saints visit the Carolina Panthers in Week 15.

Brees scored 14.9 FanDuel points in the win, compared to numberFire's weekly projection of 25.1 FanDuel points. He's averaging 266.4 passing yards per game with 31 touchdowns and 4 interceptions this season.

What It Means:

The rushing and total yards from scrimmage are both season-lows for Gurley, who was unable to overcome the tough matchup on the road. Things should be easier for Gurley and the offense as a whole when the Rams return home for a Week 15 date with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Gurley was held to a season-low 7.3 FanDuel points, compared to numberFire's weekly projection of 21.6 FanDuel points. He has 244 carries for 1,203 yards and 15 touchdowns and 49 receptions for 504 yards and 4 touchdowns (68 targets) this season.

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery had 6 catches (9 targets) for 50 yards and 1 touchdown in a 29-23, Week 14 overtime loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

What It Means:

Jeffery led the Eagles in receiving across the board and the targets were the most he's seen since Golden Tate was acquired. It was the first time he topped 4 catches, reached 50 yards, or caught a touchdown since Week 7. Philadelphia plays the Rams in Los Angeles next Sunday.

Jeffery scored 14.0 FanDuel points in the loss, exceeding numberFire's Week 14 projection of 10.3 FanDuel points. He has 49 receptions for 542 yards and 5 touchdowns on 74 targets this season.
