Injuries have hit some prominent names at the worst possible time for fantasy owners, with key pieces at quarterback, running back and receiver set to miss Week 15 action. The barrage of bad news is offset for some by the return of one the most prolific players at the quarterback position, and several others are also trending toward toughing out their ailments and suiting up.
