Calvin Ridley, Mike Evans and DeVante Parker were forced to leave their games on Sunday with injuries and did not return. In the face of Week 15 and more clashes of fantasy playoffs, the owners hope that their initial fantasy receivers can recover quickly. But if they don't, our WR ratings, sleeper suggestions and exemptions will include each of your replacements.

WEEK 15 RANKINGS NO PPR:

Calvin Ridley injury update
Ridley suffered what was called an abdominal injury on Sunday that was at least visually terrifying. He left the medical store during the third quarter, then collapsed on the ground and had to be transported, according to the Gwinnett Daily Post. The team did not provide an additional update after the game.
This did not seem to be a standard soccer injury, so it is difficult to anticipate the potential time that Ridley could lose. His absence would probably elevate Russell Gage to the consideration of WR3 / FLEX he had with Julio Jones outside, although Gage saw only four goals on Sunday, perhaps because the Falcons were winning big by the time Ridley left. Don't rush to pick up Olamide Zaccheaus after his 93-yard touchdown, he's still way below the depth table in Atlanta.
WEEK 15: Main exemption pads
Mike Evans injury news
Evans seemed to injure the hamstring of his left hamstring in his touchdown catch on Sunday, without celebrating completely while limping towards the bench. He went to the locker room and did not return to the game. In his absence, both Breshad Perriman and Justin Watson caught touchdowns.
(Update: Bruce Arians he told reporters on Monday that Evans is "very doubtful,quot; for week 15.)
We would claim Perriman before Watson based on his use before Evans got hurt, although Tampa Bay runs enough sets of three wide so that both have some recourse against the Lions in Week 15.
WEEK 15 PPR CLASSIFICATIONS: Running | Wide receiver | Hard end
DeVante Parker concussion update
Parker's head slammed into the ground on Sunday after a capture, forcing him to leave the game with a concussion. Albert Wilson of Miami left the game shortly after with a concussion of his own, further depleting the Dolphins' receiving body.
A confrontation with the Giants in Week 15 makes it worthwhile to have a part of this air strike. We would bet on Allen Hurns being the No. 1 de facto if Parker is out, but young Isaiah Ford could also play a role after catching six of nine goals on Sunday. Hurns is worth a claim of exemption, especially for Parker owners.
DJ Chark injury update
Chark limped off the field at the end of Sunday's game with an ankle injury. He was considered questionable to return, but did not return in defeat. He left the stadium with a protective boot on his left foot.
Jacksonville has nothing to play for, so they could play it safe with Chark. If you waste time, both Dede Westbrook and Chris Conley can be used at least as FLEX options in PPR leagues and probably also in standard formats against a WR friendly Raiders secondary in Week 15.
