Detroit Lions RB Wes Hills rushed 10 times for 21 yards with two touchdowns in Week 15 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Hills found the end zone twice, but he is not someone to consider outside of deeper fantasy leagues in Week 16 against the Denver Broncos on the road.

Michigan TE Devin Funchess was selected 41st overall by the Carolina Panthers in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft on Friday, May 1. Funchess will be used exclusively at wide receiver, according to general manager Dave Gettleman.
Huddle Up: In a very curious move, the Panthers traded up 16 spots to pick TE/WR hybrid, giving them a pair of massive wideouts with the 6-4, 230-pound Funchess and the 6-5, 240-pound Kelvin Benjamin. Funchess, though, lacks speed and route-running expertise, meaning he has a steep NFL learning curve ahead.

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams could see a hand specialist this week, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Williams' fractured his hand in Week 13 but could still play in Week 14 if the swelling in his hand goes down.
Huddle Up: A lot of ifs and unknowns here for a RB who hasn't been all that productive even when he has played this year, so don't waste too much time here.

Carolina Panthers WR Jerricho Cotchery could be a sneaky start this week if WR Kelvin Benjamin (concussion) is unable to play. Even with Benjamin in the lineup last week, Cotchery saw 10 targets in a tie with the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: The veteran Cotchery has had at least 4 receptions in four of the five games he's played in this season, and should step into the Panthers' No. 1 WR role if Benjamin is indeed out.
