Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) medically cleared to return for Green Bay
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) announced on Instagram that he has been medically cleared to return and is now expected to start in Week 15.
Rodgers has missed the last eight weeks after suffering a broken collarbone in Week 6. The Packers had left his status up in the air earlier today, presumably allowing Rodgers to announce his return his own way. With the star quarterback slated to play on Sunday versus the Carolina Panthers, Jordy Nelson will see a boost in fantasy value, and Brett Hundley will return to the bench for Green Bay.
Rodgers averaged 22.0 FanDuel points per game in his first 5 starts of the year before breaking his collarbone early in Week 6.
Eric Ebron facing a tough matchup in Week 15 as Lions host the Bears
Detroit Lions tight end Eric Ebron has a tough matchup against the Chicago Bears in Week 15.
Ebron is coming off his best game of the season, 10 catches for 94 yards, but will have a tough time replicating the performance against the Bears, who allow the fifth-least amount of fantasy points to tight ends.
Our models project Ebron for 3.0 catches for 28.6 yards and 5.3 FanDuel points in Week 15.
Patriots' Malcolm Mitchell (knee) unlikely to play this season
New England Patriots wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell is considered unlikely to return to the field this season, reports Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald.
Howe is reporting that the Patriots have been operating off this assumption "for weeks." And that might help to explain why they added former Cleveland Browns wideout Kenny Britt earlier today. With Britt, Danny Amendola and Phillip Dorsett, the Patriots won't have a problem filling the gap left by Mitchell. Mitchell didn't play in 2017 after being placed on injured reserve with reoccurring knee issues.
A fourth-round pick in 2016, Mitchell turned 48 targets into 32 catches, 401 yards and 4 scores a year ago.
Jets place Josh McCown (hand) on IR
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the New York Jets have placed quarterback Josh McCown on injured reserve.
McCown broke his non-throwing hand in Sunday's loss to the Denver Broncos. He will require surgery to correct the issue, thereby ending his impressive 2017 season. The 38-year-old will be a free agent heading into the 2018 campaign. Bryce Petty is set to assume the starting role over the last three games.
In 13 starts, McCown completed 67.3% of his passes and threw for 2,926 yards, 18 touchdowns and 9 interceptions. He also accounted for 5 scores on the ground this season.
Bears' Dontrelle Inman poised for a bounce-back performance in Week 15
Chicago Bears wide receiver Dontrelle Inman has a favorable matchup in Week 15 against the Detroit Lions.
Inman was on the field for 93% of the offensive snaps but saw no targets in Sunday's win over the Cincinnati Bengals. With the Lions allowing the sixth-most passing yards in the NFL, the Bears' passing game, and Inman, will be in a nice spot on Saturday.
Our models project Inman for 3.3 receptions, 47.9 yards, and 0.2 touchdowns for 7.8 FanDuel points in Week 15.
Adam Shaheen (chest) limited in Bears' practice on Tuesday
Chicago Bears tight end Adam Shaheen (chest) was limited in practice on Tuesday.
Shaheen suffered the chest injury in Sunday's dominating win over the Cincinnati Bengals. He caught 4 passes for 44 yards and a touchdown in Week 14. Expect him to be questionable for Saturday's game against the Detroit Lions.
Our models project Shaheen for just 4.7 FanDuel points in Week 15.
