Jaguars WR Calvin Ridley racked up 6 receptions for 90 yards and 2 TDs in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers. That marked his biggest production since Week 11 against the Titans. That followed three straight games of 53 receiving yards or less for Ridley. So do we ignore it as an outlier? No. Ridley has drawn 9+ targets in three straight games and 8+ targets in five of the past six. He was bound for some regression. Next comes a Panthers defense that has allowed the third-fewest PPR points to WRs on the season. But Carolina sits just 17th in pass-defense DVOA and allowed TD receptions to Packers WRs Romeo Doubs and Dontayvion Wicks in Sunday's loss to the Packers. Ridley figures to land in WR2 territory in the final Week 17 rankings.

Titans TE Chig Okonkwo is active for today’s game vs. the Seahawks. He missed Friday's practice with an illness, but we’re expecting him to be ready for his usual role today.

Titans QB Will Levis (ankle) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Seahawks. He got back on the practice field on Friday and seemingly has a good chance to return for Week 17. QB Ryan Tannehill starts today for the first time since Week 6.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Titans QB Will Levis (ankle) is not expected to play vs. the Seahawks today. "He pushed to be on the field, practicing on Friday. But couldn't quite get there," Rapoport tweets. It sounds like Levis has a chance to be back for Week 17. QB Ryan Tannehill makes his first start since Week 6 today. He sports a better completion rate than Levis but a slightly lower yards per attempt. We're considering the switch from Levis to Tannehill a wash for Tennessee's offense.

The Titans have placed S Amani Hooker on IR, which will end his season. Hooker played every snap of the Week 15 OT loss to the Texans but then missed practice all week with a knee injury. The team had already ruled him out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. With S K'Von Wallace also ruled out, the starting safeties should be Elijah Molden and Terrell Edmunds. Molden has five starts this season and played 100% of the snaps in four of those. He's an OK deep start if you need him, though Seattle hasn't been a positive scoring matchup for DBs. Make sure you don't overrate Molden's usefulness by looking at his fantasy total from last week, when he returned an INT for a TD against Houston. Molden can be a sneaky option for CB-required leagues, though, if he carries CB eligibility there. Edmunds has played sparingly since arriving in Tennessee in the Kevin Byard trade, reaching 50% snap share just once. We wouldn't bet a Week 16 lineup slot on him unless you play in an abnormally deep league. Check our updated Week 16 DB rankings to see where both players sit.

Titans TE Chig Okonkwo missed Friday's practice with an illness and is listed as questionable for Week 16. It's unlikely to keep him from playing vs. the Seahawks, but you'll need to check back around 11:30 am ET on Sunday to make sure Okonkwo is active.

Titans QB Will Levis (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Seahawks. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. We’re expecting Levis to miss this one, leaving QB Ryan Tannehill to get the start. But we’ll continue to keep you updated on the situation leading up to Sunday’s 1 pm ET kickoff.

Titans DT Jeffery Simmons (knee) will miss his third straight game Sunday against the Seahawks. That's a big blow to a run defense that struggled without him the past two weeks. Tennessee allowed 148 rushing yards to Houston and 158 to Miami the game before. The matchup certainly improves for Seattle RB Kenneth Walker III. Tennessee has also ruled out S Amani Hooker (knee), S K'Von Wallace (quad), LB Jack Gibbens (back), and CB Sean Murphy-Bunting (hip). It could be a nice week for the entire Seattle offense.

Titans QB Will Levis (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. We're not expecting him to play vs. the Seahawks this weekend, which would presumably put QB Ryan Tannehill back at the controls for Tennessee. We're treating that as a wash for WR DeAndre Hopkins and the Titans' other pass-catchers.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that Titans QB Will Levis suffered a high left ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Texans. "Still uncertain whether Tennessee needs to sit him or for how long," Fowler says. We'll watch Levis' status this week, but we'd be leaning away from using him if possible anyway. If Levis can't play, Ryan Tannehill should get the start. That shouldn't be a downgrade for other Titans offensive pieces.

Steelers HC Mike Tomlin said Monday that QB Mason Rudolph will start Saturday's game against the Bengals. Actually, he said, "As I stand here today, Mason Rudolph is the guy with the ball," according to ESPN's Brooke Pryor. Tomlin also didn't rule out QB Kenny Pickett being ready to return. Tomlin said that Pickett would not only need medical clearance following surgery for his high-ankle sprain but also need to show he can protect himself and "be sharp," according to Dale Lolley of We'll keep an eye on the situation throughout the week, but there's not a whole lot of fantasy value to squeeze from this pass offense either way. Here's hoping you have better lineup options at QB, WR, and TE for Week 16.

Jaguars WR Calvin Ridley hauled in 5 catches on 12 targets for 39 receiving yards in Week 15 vs. the Ravens. The veteran wideout nearly caught a 13-yard TD late in the fourth quarter of play, though the pass was ruled incomplete by the officials and held up following a Jaguars challenge. Sunday night marks the third consecutive contest in which Ridley has been held to under 10 PPR points. Despite a stellar Week 16 draw vs. the Buccaneers (third-best WR matchup per our adjusted fantasy points allowed), his inconsistencies will make it difficult to trust Ridley next week in the fantasy playoffs.

Titans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught just two passes for 21 yards in Sunday's OT loss to the Texans. That came despite a team-leading 9 targets that accounted for 34.6% of QB Will Levis' pass attempts and led his nearest teammate by five. It was Hopkins' third straight game with 9+ targets and fifth such game among eight since Levis took over. The WR sports just a 46.3% catch rate over that span, though. He gets a positive matchup with Seattle in Week 16 before a rematch with Houston ... which was also a positive matchup. Hopkins ran more of his routes from the slot Sunday, according to Pro Football Focus, drawing a 36% target route from there but logging just one catch. We'll see if that lack of success alters any Week 16 usage. Hopkins remains a startable fantasy asset but comes with a low floor.

Titans QB Will Levis suffered a left leg injury in overtime of Sunday's game vs. the Texans. The replay was gruesome enough that the TV broadcast decided not to show it, although Levis was able to walk off the field. We'll update his status when we know more. QB Ryan Tannehill is Tennessee's backup today.

The Titans have ruled DT Jeffery Simmons (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Texans. It'll be the second straight missed game for Simmons, who has yet to practice since sustaining the injury. That casts doubt on his Week 16 status as well. Tennessee allowed 158 rushing yards to the Dolphins with Simmons out of the lineup last week. That plus Houston likely being without QB C.J. Stroud (concussion) add upside to Texans RBs Dameon Pierce and Devin Singletary. The Titans would be in even worse shape without DE Denico Autry. He's questionable with a knee injury after missing practice Wednesday and Friday (with a limited Thursday in between). We'll check Autry's status Sunday.

Cowboys RB Tony Pollard put forth another strong fantasy effort in Week 14 vs. the Eagles, totaling 16 carries for 58 rushing yards and a season-high 7 catches for 37 yards. Sunday night marked the fourth consecutive game in which he has posted at least 16 PPR points in a game. Week 15 presents an upside spot against the Bills (11th-best RB matchup per our adjusted fantasy points allowed).

Bengals WR Tyler Boyd (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Colts. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and limited again in Friday’s practice. It’s unclear how big an issue the ankle will be today, but Boyd was a weak fantasy bet anyway.

The Titans have ruled DT Jeffery Simmons (knee) out for Monday night's game against the Dolphins. That's bad for both the Tennessee run defense and pass rush. Of course, all the potentially affected Miami offensive pieces have already been sitting inside fantasy-starter territory for most lineups. Check your Team Intel page for your best options.

Bengals WR Tyler Boyd (ankle) is questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Colts. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and limited again in Friday’s practice. HC Zay Taylor said Friday that he expects Boyd to play this weekend. But he was a weak fantasy bet even before the ankle trouble.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (concussion) is active for today’s game vs. the Colts. We’ll see how big a role he plays in his first action since Week 9, but Burks should not be in fantasy lineups.
