Breaking Fantasy Football News & Lineup Alarms

MRI confirms torn ACL for Rob Gronkowski, per league source. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
Expert Advice: This latest news officially puts an end to Gronkowski's frustrating season and leaves a huge hole in the Patriots passing game. Expect Matt Mulligan to take over at tight end for the remainder of the season, but he will be used more as a blocker than in the passing game. The only fantasy value Mulligan holds at this point is the fact that he has both a hall of fame coach and quarterback on the same sideline as him and that doesn't show up in the box score.

New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie suffered a head injury in a 37-27 win over the visiting Oakland Raiders, the team announced after Sunday's game. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
Expert Advice: Cromartie was involved in a violent head-to-head collision in Sunday's game, so it is no surprise he is now dealing with a head injury. The extent of the injury is unknown at this time, so consider him day-to-day for the time being.
WR - Cle
Updated: Josh Gordon's 774 receiving yards in the past four games is a league record, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
Expert Advice: Gordon continues to get the job done, regardless of the matchup, which makes him a must-start the rest of the way. If the Browns can either trade for a running back this offseason or take a chance on someone in the draft, Gordon could become an even better player if he attached less attention. So owners in dynasty leagues look to have the next Megatron as it stands right now, which could mean a keeper for at least a decade.
RB - Car
Jonathan Stewart will have an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of his knee injury suffered in Sunday nights game vs. the Saints. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
Expert Advice: Even if Stewart is healthy enough to return to action in Week 15, he should remain far away from fantasy starting lineups. Stewart missed the first eight weeks with a leg injury and taking into consideration his inability to stay on the field, he can pretty much be forgotten about at this point in the season.
WR - Ari
Larry Fitzgerald found the end zone for the fourth consecutive week as he caught 12 passes for 96 yards and a touchdown in the blowout win over the Rams. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
Expert Advice: Fitz has scored five touchdowns in his last four games and now has 10 touchdowns on the season, three scores from his career best of 13, which he accomplished back in 2009.
WR - Cle
Josh Gordon posted his 4th consecutive 100-plus yard receiving game as he had 151 yards on seven catches and a touchdown in the loss to the Pats. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
Expert Advice: It appears at if no one can slow down Gordon, who now has the most receiving yards over a four game stretch in the history of the league. After Sunday's performance, Gordon should be considered matchup-proof, that s if he wasn't already. With games against the Bears, the Jets and the Steelers the finish out the season, expect his historic streak to continue the rest of the way.
WR - NO
Marques Colston matched his previous number of touchdowns with two on nine receptions for 125 yards receiving in the Week 14 win over Panthers. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
Expert Advice: Colston led the Saints in targets (13), receptions, yards, and tied Jimmy Graham with the two touchdowns in Sunday's game. All season-highs for Colston who had scored just one touchdown since Week One, coming into the game.
WR - Cin
Marvin Jones is tied with A.J. Green for a team-high eight receiving touchdowns after catching three passes for 60 yards and a touchdown in the win over the Colts Sunday. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
WR - Cin
A.J. Green had six catches on eight targets for 72 yards, all team highs, and scored a touchdown for the second consecutive week to help lead the Bengals to a 42-28 win over the Colts. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
RB - Cin
Giovani Benard came up one yard short of 1st career 100 yard rushing game Sunday as he led the Bengals with 99 yards rushing on 12 carries (8.3 ypc) and he added 49 yards receiving on four catches as the Bengals blew out the Colts 42-28. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
WR - Ind
LaVon Brazill with a surprise performance in Week 14 with three catches, two of them touchdowns, and 53 yards receiving in loss to the Bengals. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
Expert Advice: Despite only three catches in the game, Brazill finished as a top 10 wide receiver in Week 14 in standard leagues. He was only targeted four times in the game, compared to nine targets for Ra'Rick Rogers, so consider Brazill a waiver wire option only in deep league formats.
WR - Ind
Colts rookie Da'Rick Rogers breaks on to the scene with six catches on nine targets for 107 yards and two touchdowns. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
Expert Advice: In his first career game Rogers finished in the top five among fantasy wide receivers totaling 22 fantasy points in standard leagues. Considering the Colts' matchups the rest of the way, Rogers will be a top waiver wire add this week and should be owned in all formats after what we saw yesterday.
QB - Ind
Andrew Luck is currently the top Fantasy scoring quarterback, thus far through Week 14. Luck finished with 326 yards passing, four touchdowns, no interceptions, and 32 yards rushing. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
Expert Advice: After recording only two passing touchdowns over his last four games, Luck bounced back in a big way on Sunday, scoring 32 fantasy points in standard leagues. Luck owners probably had him benched this week after a month of disappointment, but if you made it through the first week of the playoffs, it would be wise to get him back into your starting lineup for Week 15.
QB - Den
Peyton Manning tells cold weather critics to 'shove that where the sun don't shine,' after leading the Broncos to a 51-28 home win over the Titans by throwing for 397 yards and four touchdowns. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
Expert Advice: And he continues to do it without a mustache. Manning finished as the second highest scoring quarterback (through Sunday's action) as he threw four or more touchdowns for the seventh time in 13 games.
WR - Den
Eric Decker continues to deliver as he lead all Broncos receivers with eight catches on 12 targets for 117 yards and a touchdown in the win over the Titans. (RotoInfo.com) (12/09)
Expert Advice: Despite being just one part of a very talented receiving core, Decker continues to make the most of his opportunities after an eight-catch performance in Sunday's win over the Titans. The Broncos have a very favorable schedule the rest of the way, so he should remain in starting lineups in all formats, especially with Wes Welker dealing with another concussion.
WR - Car
Steve Smith reached the end zone for 1st time since Week 6 in the blowout loss to the Saints Sunday night. Smith tied his season high with six receptions for just 49 yards receiving and one touchdown. (RotoInfo.com) (12/08)
WR - Det
Calvin Johnson broke Herman Moore's franchise record for most career yards receiving Sunday. Moore held the team record with 9,174 career yards receiving. (RotoInfo.com) (12/08)
Expert Advice: Despite only hauling in three catches for 49 yards in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, Johnson etched his name in the team's record books and is now 'officially' the best wide receiver in the history of the organization. However, this performance did not help out his fantasy owners, but if you were fortunate enough to make it to the next round, he has three great matchups ahead that he will be able to exploit.
OL - Det
Lions right tackle LaAdrian Waddle injured his elbow in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, but head coach Jim Schwartz said Waddle could have come back into the game if the Lions would have needed him to. (RotoInfo.com) (12/08)
TE - NO
Jimmy Graham had six catches for 58 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the win over the Panthers. (RotoInfo.com) (12/08)
QB - NO
Drew Brees bounced back from disappointing Week 13 performance as he and the Saints dominated the Panthers. Brees was 30-of-42 passing for 313 yards and four touchdowns to lead New Orleans to a 31-13 win over the Panthers. (RotoInfo.com) (12/08)
Expert Advice: Brees did all that against the second overall ranked defense in the league, showing that last week's poor performance was likely just a fluke/bad road matchup. On top of what Bress did today, he became the first player in NFL history to throw 30 or more touchdowns in six straight seasons.
