Chargers fire HC Mike McCoy

Sunday, January 1, 2017, 9:27pm - [Full Article]

After finishing dead last in the AFC West two years in a row, the Chargers are parting ways with head coach Mike McCoy.

The team confirmed the move on Sunday following San Diego's 37-27 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact:

With San Diego mulling a potential move to Los Angeles, the franchise has extra incentive to start fresh with a coach unlinked to the team's recent string of failure.

Bills HC Anthony Lynn says RB LeSean McCoy has a high ankle sprain.

Fantasy Impact:

Reports said McCoy wanted to get back in the game but there was no reason for that. McCoy had a great fantasy year and should be a top back next summer when drafts come around.

Raiders QB Matt McGloin (shoulder) leaves Week 17

Sunday, January 1, 2017, 6:55pm

USA Today - [Full Article]

The playoff-bound Oakland Raiders are down to their third quarterback.

Rookie Connor Cook replaced Matt McGloin late in the second half of Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos after McGloin suffered a shoulder injury.

McGloin made his first start since 2013 on Sunday after starter Derek Carr suffered a broken fibula last week.

Fantasy Impact:

The Raiders were trailing 17-0 when Cook entered the game. McGloin was 6-for-11 with just 21 passing yards when he was injured. The team announced he was questionable to return in the second half. The Raiders would clinch the AFC West title and No. 2 seed with a win. With a loss and a Kansas City Chiefs win in San Diego, Oakland would instead be a wild-card team and play next week at Houston.

Alden Gonzalez on Twitter - [Full Article]

Cardinals RB David Johnson needed help walking off the field with what appeared to be a knee injury.

Fantasy Impact:

By all reports it wasn't a pretty injury. Based on those reports, it could be a lengthy recovery for Johnson which should have the attention of those in keeper and dynasty leagues. We'll continue to monitor.

Fantasy Impact:

Benjamin (knee) was questionable and seemed like he had a shot to play in Week 17. Tyrell Williams and Dontrelle Inman should see a bulk of the targets at WR while Ronnie Hillman seems likely to see a heavy load at RB with Gordon out.
