Week 15 Essential NFL Practice News & Notes for Friday
Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (right shoulder, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 15. Bortles will play against Baltimore, though he’s not much of a fantasy option at this point.
Eagles QB Nick Foles (collarbone, out) has been ruled out for Week 15. Foles remains out, but is inching closer to a return. Mark Sanchez is an attractive start in a good matchup against the Cowboys. He is the #8 fantasy QB since taking over as the starter in Week 10.
Giants QB Eli Manning (back, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 15. Manning is good to go for a great matchup against the Redskins.
Titans QB Zach Mettenberger (right shoulder, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 15. Jake Locker is going to get the start and he’s a worthwhile streaming option for desperate owners given a favorable matchup against the Jets.
Panthers QB Cam Newton (back, out) has been ruled out for Week 15. Newton has been released from the hospital, but he’s not going to play in Week 15. Derek Anderson will draw the start and is probably the better pocket passer. This means we don’t see this situation as a downgrade for Kelvin Benjamin or Greg Olsen. They both produced big fantasy lines in Week 1 when Anderson started against the Bucs.
