Darnell Mooney Won't Play In Season Finale

Friday, January 5, 3:59 PM

Chicago Bears wide receiver Darnell Mooney (concussion) missed practice all week and has been ruled out for the Week 18 regular season finale on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. Mooney will close out a disappointing campaign by missing the final two games of the year. The 26-year-old was in the shadow of top wideout DJ Moore all season, and it didn't help that quarterback Justin Fields missed valuable time due to injury midway through the year. Mooney finishes his fourth NFL season with career-lows in catches (31), receiving yards (414) and touchdowns (one) in 15 games played. Moore should be Fields' top target yet again as the Bears look to spoil Green Bay's bid for a postseason appearance, while rookie Tyler Scott, Equanimeous St. Brown and others should be more involved as well.

Jordan Addison Scores To Cap Off Excellent Rookie Season

Monday, January 8, 1:05 PM

Minnesota Vikings rookie wide receiver Jordan Addison capped off an impressive first year in the NFL with four catches on his eight targets for 57 yards and his 10th touchdown of the year in Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Detroit Lions in the regular season finale. In half-PPR scoring, the first-rounder finished as the WR20 in his first full year in the league with an impressive 70 receptions (108 targets) for 911 yards and the 10 scores. It certainly helped that All-Pro wideout Justin Jefferson missed a big chunk of games (six to be exact) in the middle of the season due to a hamstring injury, but Addison made good on his first-round draft pedigree and should form one of the best receiver duos with Jefferson for years to come. Fantasy managers can't bank on double-digit touchdowns from Addison in Year 2, but he should remain highly productive with Jefferson taking plenty of attention away from him.
