Week 15 fantasy feedback

» Rashad Jennings will be a name to remember next fall when it comes to draft time. He had another nice day with 91 rushing yards and two touchdowns. He’s also made Darren McFadden expendable in Oakland.

» More on Jamaal Charles. He posted all of his 51.50 fantasy points on just 16 touches — eight rushes, eight receptions.

» It was a DeAngelo Williams day for the Panthers. Don’t you just get the feeling that he could have been that type of back more consistently if the Panthers had just committed to him all along?

» As much as Jamaal Charles is killing people’s playoff hopes, so is Drew Brees. But for completely different reasons.

» After a slow start, Matt Flynn is starting to pick things up. He was around 14 points through three quarters and is heating up.

» Just when we thought the Chiefs defense has righted the ship, the combination of Matt McGloin and Terrelle Pryor have helped lead the Raiders to 31 points most of the way through the third quarter.

» DeMarco Murray is averaging 9.6 yards per carry. So of course he only has nine rushes in the first half.

» Jamaal Charles. That is all.

» Last week, I had Doug Baldwin as a receiver to watch for 2014. He only solidified that designation with a nice 76-yard, one-touchdown performance today.

» The Seahawks defense is a quality fantasy-scoring defense on most days. It gets even better when Eli Manning throws five interceptions.

» It’s not a big surprise that Pierre Garcon had a nice day with Kirk Cousins, but it’s worth noting that Aldrick Robinson had 99 receiving yards. With the Cowboys on tap next week, Robinson could be a sleeper.

» Ryan Tannehill lived up to his sleeper hype this week with three TD passes and no interceptions. Next week he faces Buffalo and could be another quality fantasy option.

» Last week, we pointed out that Julian Edelman was the Wes Welker replacement we thought Danny Amendola would be. Today, both receivers were huge fantasy producers. That’s something to watch for next week’s game against the Baltimore Ravens.

» It wasn’t a bad day for Fred Jackson, who picked up 80 yards on 17 carries. This only muddles the backfield picture between he and C.J. Spiller.

» The Colts rolled past the Texans, but it was another pedestrian fantasy day for Andrew Luck. Only 180 passing yards, two touchdowns and an interception. He’ll face the Chiefs next week. Expect more of the same.

» So far in his return, Jay Cutler has been perfectly average. But at least he’s thrown TD passes to both Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery.

» #Belitricks came back to bite you at the worst time with Shane Vereen being a non-factor today. Meanwhile, LeGarrette Blount and Stevan Ridley have been the guys to see most of the touches.

» Looks like Matt Asiata is paying off. If you were brave enough to start him, good on ya. It was a major risk. But you’ve gotten a major reward.

» Remember when Case Keenum was a thing?

» Chris Ogbonnaya got the start for the Browns, but he’s not getting the carries early on. Edwin Baker and Fozzy Whittaker have been the two men to carry the ball for Cleveland.

» Having Michael Crabtree back is definitely having a positive impact on Colin Kaepernick. The WR caught his first TD pass of the season — the first by someone other than Vernon Davis or Anquan Boldin. But more importantly, Kaepernick is finding more running room with an extra target at his disposal.

» Jay Cutler gets off to an unwanted start, throwing an interception in the end zone on Chicago’s first possession of the day.

» Well, no Peterson. No Gerhart. It’s all Asiata all day.

» It doesn’t look good for Adrian Peterson playing this week. However, since this has been a possibility since Monday, hopefully you grabbed Toby Gerhart off the waiver wire. In the event Gerhart can’t go, it’ll be Matt Asiata seeing the carries. But we wouldn’t advise trusting him with your playoff fortunes.
