Aaron Rodgers ruled out vs. Steelers
Friday, December 20, 2013, 1:53pm
This is not surprising news given the way this week has gone. Owners waiting on Rodgers will have to continue to put a band aid on the QB position. Kirk Cousins, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Ryan Tannehill, Joe Flacco and Jason Campbell are all decent-to-good streaming options. Even Matt Flynn and Matt Cassel are worth consideration. Check our QB rankings to see how we believe these players will perform this week.
LeSean McCoy wants a big workload vs. Bears

"I feel like this game, I need to put the offense on my back," McCoy said Wednesday. "I want to roll, I want to get going. I think me and the guys up front, we've got to set the tone."
McCoy's owners would also like to see him get a big workload. The only concern is that the Eagles may rest their players for a portion of the game if the Cowboys beat the Redskins earlier in the day. HC Chip Kelly has said that they won't rest, but he didn't say they would play a full game, either. It's something to consider when setting rosters this week.
Jordan Reed (head) undergoing further testing

Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed was unable to practice again and will visit more specialists Thursday because of his concussion. But the Redskins still haven’t ruled out the possibility of him playing again.
Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said they’ll go by the doctors’ recommendation, which is why he said they have not yet shut him down for the final two games.
“We’re going to do what we can to make sure that he’s looked at carefully, and when the doctors say that he’s ready to go, he’ll be ready to go,” Shanahan said.
At this point, Reed looks doubtful to play again this season. On a per game basis, he was the #12 TE in fantasy, but didn't see starter's snaps until Week 6. He'll likely be a good value on draft day in 2014.

Kelly: Eagles won't rest starters if Dallas wins
Monday, December 16, 2013, 2:28pm
If the Cowboys win at 1 p.m. over the Redskins, the 8:30 Sunday night game becomes meaningless for the Eagles, and the division comes down to a Week 17 showdown between the teams. If the Cowboys lose, an Eagles win over the Bears clinches the division. It's something to think about for owners of Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson, though. It's one thing for Kelly to say this on a Monday before the game, but when you're looking at a meaningless game, it's possible Kelly could change his mind and make sure everyone is healthy for Week 17. A terrible Eagles performance last week against the Vikings keeps hope that Kelly goes the distance with his horses, but this is something to monitor.
