Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph dealing with knee, ankle injuries


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph did not practice Wednesday due to knee and ankle injuries, reports 1500ESPN.com. Rudolph, who had sports hernia surgery earlier this season, is coming off his best game of the year, catching seven passes for 69 yards against Detroit.

If Rudolph can't play Sunday at Miami, Chase Ford would start. Ford has 22 catches for 236 yards and a touchdown in nine games played.


Titans set with injury report for Thursday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) The Titans have ruled out running back Dexter McCluster (knee) for their Thursday night game against Jacksonville. Tackle Taylor Lewan (ankle) is listed as doubtful, but will likely be sidelined as well.

Deemed questionable are wide receiver Kendall Wright (hand), tight end Delanie Walker (knee), tackle Byron Stingily (ankle) and linebackers Zaviar Gooden (hamstring) and Kamerion Wimbley (hamstring). Walker, however, has already declared himself ready to roll.

The lone probable is safety Daimion Stafford (concussion), who has been cleared for practice.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) The Chiefs have made several moves. They have released Adam Schiltz from the practice squad, placed wideout Armon Binns on the practice squad/injured list and signed long snapper Charlie Hughlett and wide receiver Corbin Louks to the practice squad.

Chargers TE Ladarius Green practices Tuesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) Chargers tight end Ladarius Green, who missed Week 15 with a concussion, practiced Tuesday ahead of Saturday's visit to San Francisco, reports ESPN.com. Even if Green is cleared to play, starter Antonio Gates should continue to eat up targets.

Gates has 84 targets in 14 games (6.0 per game), compared to Green's 23 targets in 12 games (1.9 per game).


Seahawks expect TE Cooper Helfet back Week 16


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said tight end Cooper Helfet should play Sunday night at Arizona, reports the Seattle Times. Helfet, who has 10 catches for 176 yards and two touchdowns, has missed three straight games with an ankle injury.

Martellus Bennett slows down a bit in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) Bears tight end Martellus Bennett came tumbling back down to Earth in Week 15, as the Saints held him to just three catches in a loss.

Bennett, who had 193 yards on 20 catches with a touchdown in his previous two games, was a victim of Jay Cutler's struggles Monday. He had just four catches for 36 yards, and was targeted only six times, his lowest total in four games, though he did haul in a two-point conversion to add some extra value.

Bennett came out of the gates red hot this season, scoring four touchdowns in the first three games, but has just two in 11 games since. Still, he is the team's No. 2 receiver at this point, now that Brandon Marshall is down. He's got solid enough matchup in Week 16, against a Bears team he had 109 yards against three weeks ago, so keep him active in all Fantasy formats even after his disappointing showing Monday. 


Titans put TE Brett Brackett on IR, promote TE Matthew Mulligan


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) The Titans placed tight end Brett Brackett (knee) on injured reserve and promoted tight end Matthew Mulligan from the practice squad, the team announced.

Bears get contributions on MNF


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) The Bears got a few offensive contributions in Monday's 31-15 home loss to the Saints. Among them, rookie running back Ka'Deem Carey caught all three of his targets for 39 yards and had a 4-yard carry. Tight end Dante Rosario made a 4-yard catch. Wideout Josh Morgan was targeted once without a catch.

They'll play the Lions in Week 16.


Bears TE Martellus Bennett held to 36 yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) Bears tight end Martellus Bennett was a victim of Chicago's offensive futility Monday night. He caught four of six targets for 36 yards in the 31-15 loss to the Saints, marking the fourth time in the past six games he's been held under 50 yards.

Bennett plays the Lions on Sunday.


Saints get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) The Saints got myriad contributions in their Week 15 win in Chicago. Among them, wideout Nick Toon caught all four of his targets for 43 yards, but lost a fumble. Running back Khiry Robinson ran three times for 10 yards and caught two passes for 10 yards.

Fullback Erik Lorig had a 1-yard carry. Tight end Benjamin Watson added a 5-yard grab.

They'll all face Atlanta on Sunday.


Third-string TE Josh Hill catches a pair of touchdowns


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) Saints third-string tight end Josh Hill is up to five touchdowns this season after catching a pair in Monday's 31-15 win at Chicago. Both scores came on the same play.

Drew Brees faked a handoff, rolled right and found Hill open in the flat for 8- and 7-yard touchdowns in the first half. Those were Hill's only two targets.

He'll face Atlanta on Sunday.


Saints TE Jimmy Graham breaks two-game slump


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) Saints tight end Jimmy Graham was once again a big part of the offense Monday night in Chicago. After catching three passes for 25 yards over his previous two games, Graham caught five passes for a team-high 87 yards in the easy win.

Graham tied for the team lead with seven targets. However, he was unable to come down with a contested end-zone fade late in the third quarter.

Graham looked spry, pulling in catches for 29 and 22 yards and trying to hurdle safety Brock Vereen in the fourth quarter. Graham will try to end his three-game scoreless streak Week 16 against the Falcons.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) Titans tight end Brett Brackett suffered a knee injury during Sunday's win over the Jets, according to the Tennessean. Ken Whisenhunt was uncertain of the extent of Brackett's injury, per the report.

Bucs place Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Louis Murphy on IR


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Seferian-Jenkins' rookie campaign comes to an end with 21 catches on 37 targets for 221 yards and two touchdowns in nine games. Murphy caught 31 passes for 380 yards and two touchdowns. Coach Lovie Smith told reporters that Murphy has done enough to come back next year.

Broncos' Julius Thomas limited in return from injury


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) After missing the last three games with an ankle injury, Broncos tight end Julius Thomas had little impact in his first game action since suffering the injury.

Thomas was held to one reception for 30 yards and was only targeted once. He also received a limited amount of snaps.

The Broncos will play at Cincinnati Week 16.


Teddy Bridgewater, Kyle Rudolph finding each other?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2014) Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and tight end Kyle Rudolph haven't had a lot of opportunities to work together. Bridgewater took over in Week 3, which was also when Rudolph suffered a groin injury that sidelined him for the team's next six games. Week 15 at Detroit, then, was only their fifth game working together. It was also by far their best.

Bridgewater found Rudolph seven times for 69 yards, both representing season highs for the fourth-year tight end. With Bridgewater also throwing for more than 300 yards for the second straight game, maybe it's the start of something.

Then again, two of those catches for 16 of those yards came with the Vikings desperate to get into field goal range with less than a minute to go. The Lions were happy to let Bridgewater dump the ball off underneath, and he obliged. Change Rudolph's line to five catches for 56 yards, and it's ... well, it's still the best he's done with Bridgewater, but it's nothing special.

Wide receiver Charles Johnson has been the greater beneficiary of Bridgewater's emergence -- or perhaps the cause of it. Still, Rudolph remains one of the Vikings' more reliable receiving options, so if Bridgewater keeps putting up numbers, some of them will have to go to his tight end.

This time of year, though, is too late to earn your trust.


Eagles' Jeremy Maclin leads team with 98 receiving yards Week 15


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin caught four of his five targets for a team-high 98 yards in his team's 38-27 loss to the Cowboys in Week 15.

Maclin's highlight came courtesy of a bad decision by his defender, who went for an interception despite having no help behind him. Maclin hauled in the catch and then followed a teammate blocking the one defender remaining between him and the goal line but was dragged down at the one-yard line on the 72-yard play.

Tight end Brent Celek racked up 52 yards while catching four of his six targets. Rookie Josh Huff received just one target but hauled it in across the middle and weaved his way toward the sideline for a 44-yard gain. Tight end Zach Ertz contributed three catches for 32 yards, while wide receiver Riley Cooper managed 17 yards on two receptions. Rookie Jordan Matthews recorded just one target but didn't catch it.

The Eagles will look to rebound against the Redskins in Week 16.


Kelvin Benjamin, Greg Olsen benefit from backup


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2014) Going without quarterback Cam Newton, who's sidelined by two fractures in his back, may seem like bad news for the Panthers offense as a whole, but in two games with backup Derek Anderson under center, that hasn't proven to be the case for the team's top two receiving threats, wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin and tight end Greg Olsen.

Benjamin had eight catches for 104 yards Week 15 against Tampa Bay. It was his second game in his last six with more than 75 receiving yards. He's had six of those games in all this season. Two of them have come in Anderson's two starts.

Olsen had 10 catches for 110 yards Week 15 against Tampa Bay. It was his second game in his last seven with more than 75 receiving yards. He's had four of those games in all this season. Two of them have come in Anderson's two starts.

Both players also got 13 targets in Week 15, equaling a season high for Benjamin and setting a season high for Olsen.

Of course, Anderson's 40 pass attempts were more than Newton has had in all but two starts this season, but maybe that's the point. The plays Newton contributes with his legs rob from the potential plays he could make with his arm, which limits Benjamin's and Olsen's targets. If nothing else, it means you should stick with Benjamin and Olsen in Fantasy even if Newton remains sidelined for Week 16 against Cleveland.


Cowboys TE Jason Witten catches seven passes vs. Eagles


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Cowboys tight end Jason Witten caught seven of his nine targets for 69 yards in his team's 38-27 win over the Eagles in Week 15.

Both the receptions and targets were season highs for Witten, who has become less of a focal point of the offense this year. His solid performance now gives him 53 receptions, 564 yards and four touchdowns on the season. Witten is slated to face the Colts in Week 16.


Logjam hurting Colts tight ends' values


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) The Colts have two very solid, productive tight ends, but that might just mean they have none, at least as far as Fantasy owners are concerned.

Coby Fleener looked like a big-time playmaker in Dwayne Allen's absence, hauling in six catches for 155 yards and two touchdowns in two games. Since Allen's return, however, he has just 88 yards on seven catches in two games, including just two for 32 in Week 15 against the Texans.

Allen was the more productive of the two Sunday, hauling in a touchdown, however he had just two receptions of his own for 16 yards in total.  In all, he has just 21 yards since making his return from an injury.

If either Allen or Fleener was the go-to option at tight end, they would probably emerge fairly quickly as a consistent Fantasy starter. However, it's hard to rely on either when they are splitting work. At this point, Fleener has the bigger role, and looks like the better choice, but neither is a must-start Fantasy option for Week 16 against the Cowboys. 


Vikings' Kyle Rudolph catches seven passes Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph turned in a solid game Week 15 against the Lions.

Rudolph tied for the team-lead in both receptions and targets, finishing with seven. He finished second on the team in receiving, with 69 yards. It was Rudolph's finest game of the season. While he mostly used as a short-yardage option, he was able to pick up a 21 yard reception in the first quarter. 

Rudolph will take on the Dolphins Week 16.
