Quarterback

QB | Brandon Weeden | Cleveland Browns | Fantasy

QB | Michael Vick | Philadelphia Eagles | Injury
Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick (concussion) said Monday, Dec. 17, his job currently is to help QB Nick Foles. Vick added, however, that he would like to play. "I want to get out there, I want to play, but it's not the ideal situation right now," Vick said.

QB | Russell Wilson | Seattle Seahawks | Fantasy
The Seattle Seahawks rushed for 119 yards on 11 zone-read running plays with QB Russell Wilson in Week 15.

QB | Andrew Luck | Indianapolis Colts | Fantasy
The Indianapolis Colts do not feature many receiver screens as part of their offensive scheme. QB Andrew Luck has only 30 passes to running backs all season. The lack of checkdown options could help explain Luck's low completion percentage (54.6 percent).

QB | Ben Roethlisberger | Pittsburgh Steelers | Fantasy
Although Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger placed blame on himself for the team's Week 15 loss, he also questioned the playcalling. When asked why TE Heath Miller didn't have a single pass thrown his way in the second half, Roethlisberger replied, "I just don't think we called the right plays to get him the ball." And when asked why the team didn't run more no-huddle offense in the second half, Roethlisberger acknowledged he wished they had done more. "That's tough for me to answer right now," Roethlisberger said. "The second half we didn't do much of it, and that's disappointing."

QB | Aaron Rodgers | Green Bay Packers | Fantasy
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers notched his third season with at least 30 touchdown passes in Week 15. He is just the third player with three such seasons of at least 30 touchdowns before turning 30.

QB | Terrelle Pryor | Oakland Raiders | Fantasy
Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor saw action in one series during his team's game Sunday, Dec. 16, against the Kansas City Chiefs. Coach Dennis Allen said game situations will dictate Pryor's play for the remainder of the season. "How much he plays, I don't know the answer to that exactly, but we'll see on a game-by-game basis," Allen said.

QB | Tom Brady | New England Patriots | Fantasy
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady was held without a touchdown pass through the first three quarters of the Week 15 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

He said that, and the twisted ankle he also suffered, were fine.

QB | Philip Rivers | San Diego Chargers | Fantasy
San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed 16 of his 23 pass attempts for 121 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 15 game against the Carolina Panthers. Rivers also had three carries for four yards, and he fumbled a whopping four times, losing two of them.

QB | Ryan Fitzpatrick | Buffalo Bills | Fantasy
Buffalo Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 21 of his 38 pass attempts for 217 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Week 15 loss against the Seattle Seahawks. Fitzpatrick also had three runs for eight yards, and he lost a fumble.

RB | Bryce Brown | Philadelphia Eagles | Injury, Fantasy
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid said RB Bryce Brown will continue to see playing time even if RB LeSean McCoy (concussion) returns for the final two games of the season. "He needs to play. That's why I haven't sat him down because of the fumbles," Reid said of Brown, responsible for four turnovers in four starts. "I felt like he did miss a lot, he missed a lot of football. The thing he needs most is to be out there and playing and learning the game. He's wired the right way. This is a kid who doesn't want to make mistakes and drop the ball and that stuff. He's a responsible kid."

RB | Trent Richardson | Cleveland Browns | Fantasy
Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur's job may be in jeopardy because his team became one-dimensional with the play calling in Week 15. The Browns threw the ball 35 times and only ran the ball 15 times. After scoring two touchdowns in the first half, RB Trent Richardson only had two carries for zero yards in the second half. "It's shocking," Richardson said. "But like I said, the game's much bigger than me. I've got to let Coach do what he does."

RB | Stevan Ridley | New England Patriots | Fantasy
New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley only received one snap after fumbling the ball in the third quarter of the team's Week 15 game. The lack of snaps may have occurred because the team had to throw the ball to get back into the game.

RB | Andre Brown | New York Giants | Injury
New York Giants RB Andre Brown (leg) will begin running next week after having surgery to replace a displaced fibula.

RB | Chris Johnson | Tennessee Titans | Fantasy
The Tennessee Titans will have a five-day window from Feb. 4 to Feb. 9 in which they can cut RB Chris Johnson at no cost against the team's salary cap. If he's on the roster past Feb. 9, $9 million of his $10 million salary for the 2013 season will become guaranteed for injury.

RB | DeMarco Murray | Dallas Cowboys | Injury, Fantasy
Although Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (foot) had just 18 touches in Week 15, he is continuing to make strides after missing six games because of a sprained foot. He is cutting across the grain and showing a burst.

RB | Ray Rice | Baltimore Ravens | Fantasy
In Week 15, new Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell ran some bunch formations and more stretch plays - plays that were a familiar part of the playbook with the Indianapolis Colts, Caldwell's former team; however, RB Ray Rice said the differences between Caldwell's game plan and former coordinator Cam Cameron's were minimal. "The plays were the same," Rice said. "The playbook was the same. Same play calls. We just didn't execute."

RB | Daniel Thomas | Miami Dolphins | Injury, Fantasy
Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (knee) lasted seven snaps before leaving with a knee injury in Week 15.

RB | Mike Goodson | Oakland Raiders | Fantasy

"The finger feels fine," said Bryant, a third-year receiver with career high of 79 catches, 1,087 yards and 10 touchdowns this season. "I'm strapping up and playing New Orleans.

Tight End

TE | Jermichael Finley | Green Bay Packers | Fantasy
The Green Bay Packers have plenty of tight ends returning next season, which will make TE Jermichael Finley expendable. TEs Brandon Bostick, Andrew Quarless, Tom Crabtree, Ryan Taylor and DJ Williams will all be back. Quarless and Williams are much more effective blockers than Finley, too, and head coach Mike McCarthy is hoping for a more formidable running game in 2013. Scouts say Finley still is impressive and is able to stretch the field, but he doesn't put fear in opposing defenses like he once did. "But I didn't see him like a couple years ago where you worried about him all the time," one personnel director said. "I don't see that mismatch ability like I used to. Drops. Inconsistent routes. Not disciplined."

Other scouts note his inconsistency if he knows he's not being involved in the offense. Scouts see lack of flexibility with Finley, and one theory is that the stiffness in his hips and knees caused him to drop a large amount of passes. Finley has struggled to sink his hips and make sharp cuts to get open. "His routes aren't polished to that level," one scout said. "If you run a great route, you get open, but that doesn't seem to matter to him. He's playing more like he's on the playground."

TE | Brent Celek | Philadelphia Eagles | Injury, Fantasy
Philadelphia Eagles TE Brent Celek (concussion) said he participated in practice Monday, Dec. 17, and believes he should be able to play Week 16.

TE | Heath Miller | Pittsburgh Steelers | Fantasy
Although Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger placed blame on himself for the team's Week 15 loss, he also questioned the playcalling. When asked why TE Heath Miller didn't have a single pass thrown his way in the second half, Roethlisberger replied, "I just don't think we called the right plays to get him the ball." And when asked why the team didn't run more no-huddle offense in the second half, Roethlisberger acknowledged he wished they had done more. "That's tough for me to answer right now," Roethlisberger said. "The second half we didn't do much of it, and that's disappointing."
