Report: Don't look for Percy Harvin until playoffs
Seattle considers Harvin "a long-term, year-to-year asset," the report said. "While he hasn’t paid dividends yet, the Seahawks have been better than fine without him. If he can contribute in the postseason, it’ll be an added benefit."
Coach Pete Carroll said Monday he would update Harvin's status on Wednesday. Seattle closes the regular season with home games against Arizona and St. Louis.

Touchdowns keeping Steven Jackson relevant
Jackson is one of five active players with at least 60 rushing scores. (He has 61). But running behind a horrible offensive line at age 30, he's averaging a career-low 3.5 yards per carry. He gained 38 yards on 15 carries last week vs. Washington.
Monday night he'll face a 49ers defense giving up the 10th-fewest Fantasy points (15.3 per game) to running backs. RBs average 3.9 yards per carry against San Francisco and have scored just one touchdown the past four weeks. The 49ers have not allowed a 100-yard rusher this season.
Jackson almost certainly won't threaten that streak, but he's capable of punching in a short touchdown run and making a few catches. Consider him a flex option.
Steelers add Kion Wilson

Matt Ryan will be under siege Week 16
Heading into a brutal Week 16 matchup at San Francisco, it would be nice if
Ryan will be under siege at Candlestick Park, his offensive line unable to protect him. The 49ers give up the 3rd-fewest Fantasy points (13.6 per game) to opposing quarterbacks. QBs have accounted for 16 touchdowns and 16 turnovers against San Fran, which allows 219 passing yards per game.
Ryan failed to capitalize on a cake matchup Week 15 at home vs. Washington. He did not complete any passes for 20-plus yards, averaging 5.5 yards per attempt. Liable to get roughed up by the 49ers, Ryan is a low-end QB2 on Monday night.
Chiefs make a pair of moves
Buccaneers add Tommy Streeter
