Below are the latest fantasy football updates from the NFL’s Sunday afternoon games.

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is unlikely to play week 15 despite practicing on Friday. Even if Gronkowski were to suit up, we are skeptical of how productive he can be this soon.

Dez Bryant it expected to tough it out and play for the Cowboys through an injured finger on Sunday. He is still a solid fantasy option despite having to try to catch passes with an injured hand.

Chargers running back Ryan Matthews is going to get a lot of touches week 15 with Ronnie Brown out. Despite a disappointing season, Matthews represents an intriguing fantasy option.

Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall is already suspended for week 15 and  now it seems like he may be done as a Steeler. ESPN is reporting that Mendenhall is talking with the team about his contract. This could signal the end of Mendenhall’s Steelers career. Stay tuned.
