NFL Recent Player News

Team: 

Date Player
12/19/2014 Marqise Lee, WR
Lee had four catches for 65 yards Thursday.

Analysis: Lee is dealing with a difficult rookie season but with an offseason in the Jags' program, don't count him out in the 2015 fantasy draft as someone who can't rock the competition.
12/19/2014 DeMarco Murray, RB
Murray is listed as questionable against Indianapolis after the NFL rushing leader did some work in practice this week for Dallas with a broken left hand. Murray has 1,687 yards rushing and needs 87 to break NFL rushing leader Emmitt Smith's franchise record of 1,773.

Analysis: Murray went through individual drills Wednesday before expanding his role in workouts Thursday and Friday. He says he will ultimately decide whether to play on Sunday. The NFC East-leading Cowboys (10-4) can wrap up a playoff berth if they beat the Colts (10-4) and Philadelphia loses to Washington. But Dallas could miss the postseason with a loss in one of two remaining games if the Eagles beat the New York Giants and Redskins.
12/19/2014 Santana Moss, WR
Moss was fined $22,050 by the NFL on Friday for language deemed "abusive and insulting" directed at game officials.

Analysis: Moss was ejected from the Redskins' 24-13 loss to the New York Giants last Sunday when he stormed after officials after Washington lost a touchdown on the final play of the first half on a video review. Robert Griffin III scrambled for an apparent 8-yard touchdown and a 17-7 lead, but a review by referee Jeff Triplette showed the quarterback lost control of the ball diving over the pylon and the play was ruled a touchback.
12/19/2014 Charlie Whitehurst, QB
Whitehurst completed 24 of 35 passes for a career-high 287 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's loss at Jacksonville.

Analysis: Whitehurst has four TDs and two INTs in four starts this year. He should not be relied upon for fantasy purposes.
12/19/2014 Toby Gerhart, RB
Gerhart ran for 53 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's win over Tennessee.

Analysis: Gerhart's score was his first since Week 4 and just his second of the season. It's been a very disappointing fantasy campaign for the fifth-year running back.
12/19/2014 Jordan Todman, RB
Todman broke loose for a 62-yard TD scamper in Thursday's win over Tennessee.

Analysis: Todman finished with five carries for 71 yards and added two receptions. While the skill set is there, it's hard to rely on him for fantasy purposes with so few touches.
12/19/2014 Blake Bortles, QB
Bortles competed just 13 of 26 passes for 115 yards and a touchdown in Thursday night's 21-13 win over Tennessee.

Analysis: Bortles has just three TDs and to go with four INTs in his last six games. He won't have much fantasy value until Jacksonville surrounds him with more talent.
12/19/2014 Drew Stanton, QB
Arians says quarterback Drew Stanton might suit up against Seattle on Sunday night but would not start. At best, Arians said, Stanton could back up starter Ryan Lindley.

Analysis: Stanton sprained his right knee in last week's win at St. Louis. He practiced on a limited basis on Thursday but did not practice on Friday. Earlier in the week, Arians said he thought Stanton would be out two to four weeks
12/19/2014 Barkevious Mingo, LB
Mingo was fined $16,537 by the NFL on Friday.

Analysis: Mingo was fined for hitting Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton in the head and neck area last Sunday in the Bengals' 30-0 victory.
12/19/2014 Tamba Hali, LB
Hali did not practice Friday.

Analysis: Coach Andy Reid said that was mostly to rest his sore knee.
12/19/2014 Dwayne Bowe, WR
Bowe missed his third straight day of practice with the flu Friday and is questionable for Sunday's pivotal game at Pittsburgh.

Analysis: Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Friday he thinks Bowe will be able to play. If he's unable to go, Frankie Hammond Jr. and Jason Avant will likely be called upon to cover Bowe's production.
12/19/2014 Marcus Gilbert, T
Gilbert practiced Friday for Pittsburgh.

Analysis: Gilbertcould return from an ankle injury that has forced him to sit out the last three games.
12/19/2014 Troy Polamalu, S
Polamalu is doubtful with a knee injury.

Analysis: Polamalu, known for his long, flowing hair, is third on the team with 61 tackles.
12/19/2014 Ryan Shazier, LB
Shazier is hoping for a heavier workload on Sunday against Kansas City.

Analysis: Shazier has been limited mostly to work on special teams each of the last two weeks after missing seven of Pittsburgh's first 12 games due to separate leg injuries. Shazier says he's back to 100 percent and hopes to be a bigger part of the game plan.
12/19/2014 Rontez Miles, S
Miles had emergency leg surgery Thursday night after he was injured in practice.

Analysis: The team confirmed Friday that Miles, promoted from the practice squad this week, injured his right shin area when he got tangled with a teammate. Coach Rex Ryan says it appeared to be just a bruise, but team doctors determined it was more serious as the pain increased throughout the day.
12/19/2014 Cliff Avril, DE
A person with knowledge of the deal says the Seattle Seahawks have signed defensive end Cliff Avril to a $28.5 million, four-year extension, preventing one of their top pass rushers from reaching free agency.

Analysis: Avril's deal comes a day after the Seahawks signed linebacker K.J. Wright to a four-year extension worth $27 million. Avril and Wright were two of Seattle's priorities.
12/18/2014 DeMarcus Love, T
The Denver Broncos have added offensive tackle DeMarcus Love to their practice squad.

Analysis: Love is a fourth-year pro who has spent time with the Vikings (2011-13) and Jaguars (2013) in addition to competing on the practice squads of the Giants and Saints this season.
12/18/2014 Dominique Jones, TE
The Denver Broncos have re-signed tight end Dominique Jones to their active roster.

Analysis: The Broncos signed Jones 48 hours after waiving him. He played four snaps in the Broncos' 22-10 victory at San Diego last weekend after being brought up from Denver's practice squad because of injuries at his position.
12/18/2014 Blair Walsh, K
Walsh has been awful lately.

Analysis: The Minnesota Vikings kicker is 1 for 6 with field goal attempts over the past two games. His success rate has fallen to 71 percent, the lowest of any regular kicker in the NFL this year. Walsh went 0 for 3 against Detroit last week, though one field goal try was blocked and another was a long shot of a 68-yarder at the end of the game.
12/18/2014 Derek Anderson, QB
Panthers quarterback Cam Newton took all of the first-team reps during the 20-minute portion of practice Thursday that was open to the media. Newton had split reps with Anderson on Wednesday.

Analysis: Coach Ron Rivera has yet to name a starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, who are Anderson's former team.
