Russell Wilson (Concussion) - Russell Wilson suffered a concussion and could not finish the game. Wilson will have to pass through the NFL's concussion protocol before being able to play next week.

Tee Higgins (Hamstring) - Tee Higgins suffered a right hamstring injury and is considered day-to-day.

D.J. Moore (Ankle) - D.J. Moore exited Sunday's game with an ankle injury. He is considered day-to-day with a knee sprain, but the injury is not significant.
Deebo Samuel (Ankle) -Deebo Samuel suffered an MCL sprain. He is expected to return during the regular season.
WEEK 15 WAIVER WIRE:
Brock Purdy (SFO) - Brock Purdy had quite the afternoon on Sunday, completing 16 of 21 passes for 185 yards and 2 passing touchdowns, totaling 21.70 fantasy points in his first NFL start. 2022's Mr. Irrelevant gets a matchup in Seattle vs the Seahawks in week 15. Seattle has allowed the 13th most fantasy points to opposing QBs prior to week 14. Purdy is available in 95 percent of NFL fantasy leagues and would be a plug-and-play this week to any QB needy fantasy teams.
Jared Goff (DET)
Bam Knight (NYJ) - Bam Knight has taken over the Jets backfield over the last few weeks. He continued his stretch of double-digit production in week 14, adding 15.70 fantasy points. That's 15.70, 16.80, and 13.30 fantasy points over the last three weeks. This latest game came with Michael Carter active. Its clear Knight has a valuable role in this offense.
Alexander Mattison (MIN) - At this point in the season, we are looking to add the top handcuffs in the league off the waiver wire. Mattison has been that over the past several seasons for the Vikings. If an injury happens to Cook, Mattison can step right in and be an RB2 with upside in the right matchups.
James Cook (BUF) - While rookie James Cook has been inconsistent this season, he remains one of the top backups in the league in a top-tier offense. We've seen him score as high as 16.50 fantasy points in a recent game, and that was with Devin Singletary active. He probably needs an injury to be productive consistently, but Cook should not be on waivers at this point of the season.
Zamir White (LV) - Raiders starting RB Josh Jacobs has been battling injuries throughout this season but has not missed any games. If by some chance Jacobs were to miss a game, White would likely become the lead back for Las Vegas. That has proven to be a valuable role for fantasy this season. White is not a priority add, but more of a luxury add if you have room.
Jaylen Warren (PIT), Jerick McKinnon (KC)
Jameson Williams (DET) - Available in 64 percent of Yahoo fantasy leagues is Lions rookie Jameson Williams. Williams made an impact in week 14, hauling in a long 41-yard touchdown catch early in the game. That was his only catch of the day, but it was great to see what he could do on the field. One can expect Williams' snaps and routes run to increase over the remaining few games of the season.
D.J. Chark (DET) - Another Lions receiver who has been productive in recent weeks has been D.J. Chark. Chark was the leading receiver for Detroit in week 14, hauling in six receptions for 94 yards and a touchdown. Chark has been quite productive since being eased back into the offense from his injury. In week 13, Chark had five receptions for 98 yards, and 12.30 fantasy points. If Chark is available in your league, add him as a WR3 or flex option.
Parris Campbell (IND), Mecole Hardman (KC)
Evan Engram (NYG) - Would you believe it if I told you that Evan Engram was the leading TE in week 14? Well, that was true as Engram had 11 receptions for 162 yards and two touchdowns. The next-best TE this week had just 59 receiving yards and one touchdown, and that was David Njoku. Engram has always been an inconsistent option, but clearly he's got some upside in this offense. He's available in 57.8 percent of NFL Fantasy leagues.
Austin Hooper (TEN) - Quietly, Austin Hooper has been productive over the last few weeks this season. He tallied 68 yards on Sunday, and 11.80 fantasy points. That's his second double-digit game in the last four weeks, as he had 19.60 fantasy points in week 11. Hooper has gained 41, 36, 30, and 22 yards over the last four games and has scored over 5.20 fantasy points in each of the last five games, so he's rarely going to hurt you. With the state of the TE position, you can do a lot worse than Austin Hooper this season.
Chigoziem Okonkwo (TEN)
