12/18/2018 Cam Newton, Car, QB
Panthers coach Ron Rivera hasn't ruled out shutting down quarterback Cam Newton for the season because of a sore right throwing shoulder. Rivera said Tuesday he plans to meet with Newton later in the week and figure out where he is "in terms of his physical state and mental state" before deciding if he will start Sunday against Atlanta.

Analysis: The eighth-year quarterback was noticeably frustrated talking about his lingering shoulder injury after Carolina's 12-9 loss to the Saints on Monday night. Newton was a mere shell of his former self, struggling to throw the ball more than 10 yards down the field.
12/18/2018 Aaron Rodgers, GB, QB
Rodgers has played all season with a left knee injury sustained in the season opener in September. He said he also injured his groin during the Packers' 24-17 loss to the Bears at Soldier Field on Sunday, though the quarterback quickly added he wants to play in the final two games, regardless of the risk.

Analysis: Rodgers enters the final two games having thrown for 3,974 yards, but with the second-lowest completion percentage in his 11 years as Packers starter (61.7 percent). With just 23 touchdown passes, Rodgers is on pace for the fewest he's had in a season in which he was healthy enough to play all year.

12/17/2018 Nick Foles, Phi, QB
Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Foles will again start in place of an injured Carson Wentz for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Analysis: Foles did an admirable job filling in for Wentz on Sunday, throwing for 270 yards on 24-of-31 passing with one interception to help the Eagles pull off a crucial 30-23 road win over the Rams. Alshon Jeffery seemed to benefit the most from the quarterback switch, as he racked up a season-high 160 yards on eight catches.
12/17/2018 Todd Gurley II, LAR, RB
Rams coach Sean McVay said Gurley, who briefly exited Sunday's loss to Philadelphia, is dealing with inflammation in his left knee.

Analysis: McVay called Gurley day to day and the Rams figure to limit his practice participation during the week. Though it looks like the star running back should play Sunday against the Cardinals, he could have a lesser role than usual in a game the Rams will be expected to win handily.
12/17/2018 Leonard Fournette, Jax, RB
Fournette will be limited in practice ahead of Jacksonville's Week 16 game at Miami.

Analysis: Fournette has had a minimal impact fantasy-wise this season, picking up just 82 yards in his last two games.
