Victor Cruz expected to miss Week 16
His backup, Jerrell Jernigan, also did not practice due to a knee injury. On Tuesday the Giants promoted wideout Julian Talley from the practice squad "due to the numbers problem at that position," the report said.

Chris Ivory showing Fantasy appeal with consistent carries
Not that Ivory has run wild. But he has rushed for 475 yards on 83 carries in his last six games for a fine 5.7 YPC average and scored three touchdowns during that stretch. His value, however, is weakened in PPR leagues. Ivory has just two catches all season as he has shared time with Bilal Powell.
Week 16 foe Cleveland still boasts one of the better rush defenses in the NFL. The Browns rank third in the NFL in YPC at 3.7, but they have the tendency to give up long runs and are coming off a game Sunday against Chicago in which they surrendered a season-high 179 yards on the ground.
Ivory is ranked 14th among all NFL backs this week by CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writer Dave Richard and 21st by his two compartiots. He is a viable No. 2 back or flex option, though owners must hope he sneaks into the end zone because he won't be piling up points through the air.

Another favorable matchup for Delanie Walker
Of course, Walker needed a season-high 11 targets to do what he did against the Cardinals, and a big reason he got all those targets was because the Titans found themselves in an unexpected shootout, losing 37-34 in overtime. You can't expect that sort of game against the Jaguars.
Still, even when the Titans lost to the Jaguars in Week 10, Walker caught four passes for 62 yards and a touchdown. If he took advantage of the matchup then, what's stopping him from taking advantage now?
Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard and Nathan Zegura are counting on it, ranking him in their top seven at tight end, with Dave and Nathan going as high as fifth.
Joe Thomas: Browns shouldn't let Alex Mack walk
The Browns own two first-round selections in 2014, but are expected to spend one on a quarterback and they have multiple other needs.

Roddy White facing unfriendly matchup
Receivers average a total of 16.6 Fantasy points vs. the 49ers, with seven touchdowns and three lost fumbles against their hard-hitting secondary. In the last two games, receivers averaged 105 yards as a group against San Francisco.
Despite his disappointing game against the Redskins, White is on a nice three-game run in which he's caught 23 passes for 270 yards. He's drawn 31 targets in that span. Consider White a flex option Monday night.
