Lions WR Bruce Ellington was knocked out of Sunday's game against the Cardinals with a hamstring injury. He caught all 4 of his targets but for just 17 yards before exiting. We'll look for an update on the severity of his injury.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger suffered a rib injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Raiders. He remained in the locker room at halftime and is officially questionable to return. QB Josh Dobbs played the 1st series of the 2nd half. We'll update Roethlisberger's status when we learn more.

Update: Roethlisberger returned in the 4th quarter after Pittsburgh fell behind 17-14.

Redskins QB Josh Johnson will start next weekend's game against the Jaguars, HC Jay Gruden announced shortly after the loss to the Giants. Johnson's mobility gave Washington's offense a semblance of a spark vs. the G-Men. He finished 11-of-16 passing for 195 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT while adding 45 yards and a score on the ground. That rushing ability adds intrigue to Johnson's fantasy stock -- but he'll only be a DFS consideration for Week 15.

Eagles RB Corey Clement injured his knee in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Cowboys and is officially questionable to return. His absence should mean some more work for RB Darren Sproles behind RB Josh Adams.

Update: Clement has been ruled out.

Eagles DE Michael Bennett (foot) is active for today's game against the Cowboys. He delivered 2 sacks in the 1st meeting with Dallas and is an upside option for IDP lineups today.

Cardinals S Budda Baker (knee) is active for today's game against the Lions. Baker only practiced Friday after returning last week from a 2-game absence, but he's OK to use if you were waiting on him for your IDP lineup.

Lions CB Darius Slay (ankle) is active for today's game against the Cardinals. LB Devon Kennard (hip) is inactive. Neither is much of an IDP factor.

Redskins QB Mark Sanchez was benched in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Redskins. He finished 6 of 14 for 38 yards, 0 TDs and 2 INTs, leading Washington to 0 points. QB Josh Johnson has replaced Sanchez. The 'Skins are a mess.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (illness) is active for today’s game against the Eagles. He missed practice on Friday with that illness but should be a full-go today. The rookie is a WR4 with some upside vs. a banged-up Philly secondary.

Raiders RB Doug Martin (knee) is active for today’s game against the Steelers. Newly signed RB C.J. Anderson is a healthy scratch. Martin should continue to serve as Oakland’s lead back but is just a RB3 vs. Pittsburgh’s tough run defense.

Lions QB Matt Stafford (back) is active for today’s game against the Cardinals. We’re not expecting the back to be an issue. But Stafford has struggled since losing WRs Golden Tate and Marvin Jones and is just a QB2 for Week 14.

Jets WR Quincy Enunwa injured his ankle in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game in Buffalo. He's officially questionable to return. Stay tuned for updates.

Update: Enunwa later returned.

Jets RB Isaiah Crowell re-injured his foot in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Bills. He was in obvious pain and was helped to the locker room. Crowell is officially questionable to return. His absence leaves the Jets with RBs Elijah McGuire and Trenton Cannon.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed suffered what appeared to be a foot injury in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Giants. This might be related to the toe issues that have bothered him for a couple of years now. We'll pass along an update on Reed when we get one.

Update: Reed has been ruled out with his foot injury. Vernon Davis steps in as Washington's pass-catching TE.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy injured his hamstring in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Jets and is questionable to return. We'll update his status when we learn more. Chris Ivory figures to operate as Buffalo's lead back as long as McCoy is out.

Jets QB Sam Darnold limped to the locker room in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game in Buffalo. This looks like an aggravation of the right foot injury that cost him the previous 3 games. We'll update Darnold's status when we learn more. QB Josh McCown is in the game for the Jets.

Update: Darnold returned later in the 1st quarter.

Washington ILB Zach Brown (illness) and DL Matt Ioannidis (shin) are active for today's game against the Giants. Brown should be fine for normal IDP usage. Ioannidis looks risky after missing practice all week. The matchup does present upside, though, if he makes the most sense among your options.

Buccaneers DE Jason Pierre-Paul (knee) is active for today's game against the Saints. He put in just a limited practice Friday and carries some extra risk into an already low-floor matchup. Consider other options for your IDP lineup today.

Texans CB Johnathan Joseph (neck) is active for today's game against the Colts after arriving with a questionable tag. There's some durability risk, but he also carries big IDP upside this week.

Colts DT Margus Hunt (knee) is active for today's game against the Texans. He's a low-level IDP option.
