Chicago's defense will have a tough task against a Packers' offense rated fourth overall by numberFire's power rankings.

Jordan Howard (shoulder) has been ruled out Sunday for Philadelphia

Philadelphia Eagles running back Jordan Howard has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins.

What It Means:

Howard has been out since November 3, so Miles Sanders should again get the bulk of the work on Sunday.

Howard has averaged 11.8 FanDuel points per game this season.

Eagles' Nelson Agholor (knee) downgraded to out Sunday

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor (knee) has been downgraded to out for the team's Week 15 game against the Washington Redskins.

What It Means:

Agholor did not practice this week, so this is not necessarily a surprising development. JJ Arcega-Whiteside, Greg Ward and Robert Davis will see action in three-receiver sets.

He has scored 6.8 FanDuel points per game this season.

Bengals' Jonah Williams (shoulder) not cleared for game action

Cincinnati Bengals offensive tackle Jonah Williams (shoulder, PUP) will reportedly not return this season.

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton (calf) is a game-time decision for Monday's matchup against the New Orleans Saints.

Seahawks' Jadeveon Clowney (core) ruled out for Week 15 against the Panthers

Seattle Seahawks linebacker Jadeveon Clowney has been ruled out of Week 15's game against the Carolina Panthers with a core injury.

What It Means:

Clowney has been dealing with a core injury for a number of weeks and will finally be forced to miss a game. His absence can only help a Panthers offense that has struggled in recent weeks.

Our models project the Seattle D/ST for 9.1 FanDuel points in Week 15.

Rams' Gerald Everett (knee) will remain out for Week 15

Los Angeles Rams tight end Gerald Everett has been ruled out for Week 15's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

What It Means:

Everett will not recover in time for Week 15 and will miss his third game in a row with wrist and knee injuries. Tyler Higbee will continue to be a top option in the Rams' passing attack in his absence. In Week 15 he will face a Cowboys pass defense rated 20th overall by our power rankings.

In his last two games combined, Higbee has caught 14 passes for 223 yards, and 1 touchdown on 19 targets.

Colts' T.Y. Hilton (calf) limited participant on Friday

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton (calf) was a limited participant during Friday's practice.

Today's participation marks consecutive practices for Hilton. The Colts will need their lead receiver against a New Orleans' pass defense rated 15th overall by numberFire's power rankings.

Hilton's Week 15 projection includes 2.3 receptions for 33.3 yards on 4.2 targets.

Saints' Jared Cook (concussion) fully practices Friday

New Orleans Saints tight end Jared Cook was a full participant at practice on Friday ahead of the team's Week 15 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

What It Means:

Cook is still in the concussion protocol for now, but it seems he's well on his way to suiting up against the Colts. And given that the game is on Monday night, he has an extra day to clear it.

Our models currently project Cook for 2.0 catches, 26.5 receiving yards, 0.1 touchdowns and 4.4 FanDuel points.

Kansas City's Damien Williams (ribs, illness) questionable for Week 15's game against Denver

Kansas City Chiefs running back Damien Williams (ribs, illness) is questionable to play in Sunday's matchup against the Denver Broncos.

What It Means:

Williams is questionable after logging consecutive limited practices. Expect Williams to share touches with LeSean McCoy if he can play in Week 15's game against Denver.

Williams' current projection against the Broncos includes 35.8 scrimmage yards on 6.5 touches.

Houston's Will Fuller (hamstring) questionable for Week 15's divisional matchup against Titans

Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller (hamstring) is questionable for Week 15's game against the Tennessee Titans.

What It Means:

Fuller was a limited participant all week due to his hamstring injury. Houston's offense will look to bounce back against a Titans' pass defense rated 16th overall by numberFire's power rankings.

Fuller's Week 15 projection includes 4.3 receptions for 61.8 yards on 6.9 targets.

Packers' Jimmy Graham (wrist, groin) questionable for Week 15

Green Bay Packers tight end Jimmy Graham is considered questionable to play on Sunday in the team's Week 15 game against the Chicago Bears.

What It Means:

Graham has carved out a consistent role for the Packers this season, even if that role is just a handful of targets per game. If he can't go on Sunday, then Marcedes Lewis would likely see a bigger workload.

Our models project Graham for 2.1 catches, 27.1 receiving yards, 0.2 touchdowns and 4.9 FanDuel points.

Steelers' Vance McDonald (concussion) ruled out for Week 15's game against Buffalo

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald (concussion) will not play in Week 15's matchup against the Buffalo Bills.

What It Means:

McDonald is not available after exiting Week 14's game with a concussion. Nick Vannett should play an increased role at tight end against Buffalo.

Vannett's Week 15 projection includes 1.9 receptions for 19.1 yards on 2.9 targets.

Lions' Matthew Stafford (back) out again for Week 15

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford will not play on Sunday in the team's Week 15 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

What It Means:

While this comes as no surprise, time is running out for Stafford to make a return this season. And with the Lions eliminated from playoff contention, it's hard to imagine the veteran passer plays another down this year. While he's out, David Blough will serve as the starting quarterback.

In eight games this season, Stafford has 2,499 passing yards with 19 touchdowns and five interceptions.

Pittsburgh's James Conner (shoulder) questionable for Week 15

Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner (shoulder) is questionable to play in Week 15's game against the Buffalo Bills.

What It Means:

Conner will attempt to return after fully practicing this week. Pittsburgh's offense will have a tough task against a Buffalo defense rated ninth overall by numberFire's power rankings.

Conner's current Week 15 projection includes 112.2 scrimmage yards on 22.5 touches.

Bears' Taylor Gabriel (concussion) remains out for Week 15's matchup against Green Bay

Chicago Bears wide receiver Taylor Gabriel (concussion) will not play in Sunday's matchup against the Green Bay Packers.

What It Means:

Gabriel will miss his third straight game with a concussion. Anthony Miller should see more snaps at receiver in Week 15.

Miller's projection against Green Bay includes 3.8 receptions for 43.7 yards on 6.5 targets.

Dolphins' Albert Wilson (concussion) questionable for Week 15

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Albert Wilson is considered questionable to play on Sunday in the team's Week 15 game against the New York Giants.

What It Means:

Like fellow receiver DeVante Parker, Wilson is questionable due to a concussion suffered in Week 14. While Parker got in a full practice session on Friday and seems on track to play, Wilson's status is still more up in the air.

Our models project Wilson for 1.5 catches, 16.9 receiving yards, 0.1 touchdowns and 3.5 FanDuel points.

Vikings' Bisi Johnson (quad) questionable for Week 15

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Bisi Johnson is considered questionable to play on Sunday in the team's Week 15 game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

What It Means:

Adam Thielen seems like he's set on returning this week, so Johnson's role would automatically be diminished anyways. Still, having him on the field in three-wide sets would allow the Vikings to spread the field effectively.

Our models currently project Johnson for 1.4 catches, 16.0 receiving yards, 0.1 touchdowns and 3.0 FanDuel points.

Vikings' Alexander Mattison (ankle) won't play in Week 15

Minnesota Vikings running back Alexander Mattison will not play on Sunday in the team's Week 15 game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

What It Means:

Mattison is dealing with an ankle injury, and it'll cost him Sunday's game. That means Mike Boone will serve as the primary change-of-pace back to Dalvin Cook.

In 13 games this season, Mattison has 462 rushing yards on 100 carries and a touchdown. He also has 10 catches for 82 yards.

Washington's Trey Quinn (concussion) won't play in Week 15

Washington Redskins wide receiver Trey Quinn has been ruled out for the team's Week 15 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

What It Means:

Quinn is dealing with the concussion he suffered in Week 14, and it's unclear if he'll be ready to go in the near future. With Paul Richardson also out, Terry McLaurin will be the only real option for quarterback Dwayne Haskins.

In 12 games this season, Quinn has 26 catches for 198 yards and a touchdown.
