Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson (chest) appears to have avoided a serious injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The All-Pro receiver was sent to the hospital after suffering the injury but returned to the stadium shortly after and traveled home with the team. The Vikings are playing on Saturday against the Cincinnati Bengals, meaning it's a short week for Jefferson to recover. There's a chance that the former first-round pick will miss more game action this season, but we'll get better clarity when the Vikings release their first injury report later this week.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs led the team with 11 targets in Sunday's huge 20-17 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs, bringing in four targets for 24 yards. Despite the massive win to keep Buffalo's playoff aspirations within reason, Diggs' recent cool-off dragged on. The 30-year-old superstar continues to set new low-water marks, closing with 34 yards or fewer in three of his past four games. This swoon arrives some time after Diggs appeared primed for his best campaign yet after totaling at least 100 yards in five of his first six games to begin the year. Suddenly not appearing matchup-proof as he did during the first half of the season, Diggs could have his hands full with Stephon Gilmore and DaRon Bland in Week 15's marquee matchup with the Dallas Cowboys.

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Jake Browning threw for 275 yards and two touchdowns off 18-for-24 passing in the win over the Colts on Sunday. He did throw an interception. But the signal-caller made up for it by finding the end zone off one of his three carries. Without question, Sunday's performance was one of Browning's best. Unfortunately, Tee Higgins and Ja'Marr Chase weren't involved, with both men combining for only five catches. However, Browning appears to have the Bengals offense clicking, so he deserves consideration against the Vikings in Week 15.

New York Jets tight end Tyler Conklin recorded four catches for 57 yards on six targets in the team's Week 14 win over the Houston Texans. Conklin was effective as a downfield option, posting receptions of 20 and 24 yards on deep balls from quarterback Zach Wilson. Although Conklin has not displayed much upside and has been held out of the end zone all season, his utilization in the Jets' passing attack has been relatively consistent. The 28-year-old will remain a fill-in fantasy option for a Week 15 matchup against the Miami Dolphins.

Minnesota Vikings running back Alexander Mattison (ankle) suffered a sprained ankle during Sunday's win over the Las Vegas Raiders. The 25-year-old had 10 carries for 66 yards before his premature exit, with his absence opening the door for Ty Chandler to amass 35 yards off 12 touches. Nevertheless, Mattison will likely undergo further testing. For now, fantasy managers should at least consider Mattison questionable for the Week 15 clash with the Cincinnati Bengals. If he can't suit up, Chandler will be a popular streaming option for managers in all formats.
