Friday injury report:

Drew Brees will be activated from IR and play against the Chiefs. Taysom Hill will return to his old role.

Matthew Stafford is questionable to face the Titans. He did get a limited practice in and could be a game-time decision on Sunday.

Alex Smith is out and Dwayne Haskins will get the start against the Seahawks this week.

Daniel Jones is practicing, but all signs point toward Colt McCoy getting the start against his old team the Browns.

DNP: Alex Smith (calf), Brandon Allen (knee)
Limited: Daniel Jones (ankle, hamstring), Matthew Stafford (ribs, thumb)
Full: N/A

Thursday injury report

Drew Brees is working his way back and has a chance to play this week, but his status for the game is still very much in limbo.

Daniel Jones added an ankle injury to his hamstring trouble and is iffy to play against the Browns. Colt McCoy appears more likely to play.

Matthew Stafford didn’t practice again and he looks iffy to play. Chase Daniel would get the start against the Titans.

Limited: Daniel Jones (ankle, hamstring),

Wednesday injury report

Matthew Stafford appears unlikely to play this week with a ribs injury. If he can’t go, Chase Daniel would get the start against the Titans.

Alex Smith didn’t practice on Wednesday. He needs rest for his calf, but still has a shot to play this week against the Seahawks.

Daniel Jones picked up an additional injury to his hamstring, as he now has an ankle ailment. He is looking like a game-time call at best against the Browns.

Week 14 ended with the best game of the season, as the Ravens and Browns went toe-to-toe, giving us two of the Top-3 fantasy quarterbacks of the week. These are the types of games fantasy players dream of, as Lamar Jackson and Baker Mayfield had to try to keep up with each other, pushing their fantasy ceilings higher and higher.

Mitchell Trubisky had his best game of the season and finished sixth overall in quarterback fantasy points. He’s played better of late, but a home game against the Texans bad and hurt secondary likely isn’t a portent of things to come.

Derrek Carr had another solid fantasy day in Week 14, as he topped 300 yards, threw for two touchdowns and rushed for another. He also threw two picks, but after that meltdown in Atlanta, he’s hit 31 and 23 fantasy points in back-to-back games.

Injury news

Matthew Stafford is dealing with a ribs injury that could hold him out for Week 15. If he can’t go, Chase Daniel would get the start against the Titans.

Daniel Jones wasn’t fully healthy in his return to the field in Week 14, but is still in line to start this week.

Drew Brees is getting close to returning, but we’ll need to see him get in meaningful practices this week before he faces Kansas City.

Bye weeks

None.

Streaming options

Jared Goff, Rams

Goff is inconsistent, but has shown upside, especially in good matchups like he’ll get against the Jets. Over their last eight games, the Jets have allowed the most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks and it’s not particularly close.

Jalen Hurts, Cardinals

Hurts showed enough last week to be in consideration against a weak Arizona Cardinals defense. The Cardinals play a lot of man coverage, which will help Hurts run the ball and he’s already shown that he can do that against a good Saints defense, by topping 100 yards in his starting debut.
