Marcus Mariota limited for Titans Tuesday with foot injury
Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota was limited in Tuesday's walkthrough with a foot issue.
Mariota has played through aches and pains most of this season and should be fine for Saturday afternoon's matchup with the Washington Redskins. He threw for 88 yards and ran for another 11 in the Titans' Week 15 shutout of the New York Giants. December is now Derrick Henry season.
numberFire's models project Mariota for 17.2 FanDuel points in Week 16. He is the QB22 in our fantasy rankings.
Rams add C.J. Anderson to backfield as Week 16 insurance
The Los Angeles Rams signed running back C.J. Anderson.
Todd Gurley is day-to-day with a knee injury, so Anderson could wind up as the Rams' lead back in Week 16 versus the Arizona Cardinals. John Kelly and Justin Davis also figure to be involved if Gurley sits. Anderson, 27, was cut by the Carolina Panthers on November 18 and then spent a week with the Oakland Raiders before being waived last Tuesday.
Anderson rushed 24 times for 104 yards and caught a 24-yard touchdown pass in nine games for the Carolina Panthers this season before being released in November.
Keenan Allen (hip) may be game-time decision for Chargers on Saturday
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen (hip) could end up a game-time decision for Saturday's game against the Baltimore Ravens.
Allen did not practice on Tuesday, so his status will need to be monitored over the next few days. It's possible the Chargers wind up using him as a decoy. He injured his hip in the first half of last Thursday's win over the Kansas City Chiefs.
Taking the injury into account, numberFire's models conservatively project Allen for 5.1 targets in Week 16.
Melvin Gordon (knee) practices in full for Chargers on Tuesday
Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon was a full participant at practice on Tuesday ahead of the team's Week 16 game against the Baltimore Ravens.
Gordon is said to have practiced at "full speed," and all signs point to him making his long-awaited return against Baltimore.
Our models project Gordon for 76.3 rushing yards, 37.5 receiving yards, 1.0 total touchdowns and 19.0 FanDuel points.
Jets place Rishard Matthews (hamstring) on injured reserve
New York Jets wide receiver Rishard Matthews has been placed on the injured reserve, ending his season.
Matthews signed with the Jets midway through the season after playing three games in Tennessee. However, due to injury and poor performance, he never found his place in New York. Likely heading to free agency in the offseason, it'll be interesting to see where the 29-year-old ends up.
In eight games this season, Matthews tallied five catches for 24 yards on nine targets.
Bills stick Marcus Murphy (elbow) on injured reserve
The Buffalo Bills placed running back Marcus Murphy (elbow) on injured reserve, ending his season.
Murhpy dislocated his elbow in Week 15 while taking over as the Bills' lead back in place of LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Chris Ivory (shoulder). If they are both ruled out again for Week 16 versus the New England Patriots, Keith Ford is the next man up in Buffalo's backfield. The Bills signed Victor Bolden in a corresponding roster move.
Murphy rushed 52 times for 250 yards and caught 11 passes for 26 yards on 19 targets in 11 games (one start) this season.
