  • Gerald Everett Catches Game-Winning Two-Point Conversion

    Los Angeles Chargers tight end Gerald Everett finished with just four receptions for 18 yards but came up clutch with a successful two-point conversion catch to seal a 25-24 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Until the game's final moments, this was an underwhelming performance for Everett against a Cardinals' defense that has been dreadful against tight ends all season. Although his target numbers may continue to decrease with Keenan Allen now healthy, Everett can be started as a low-end TE1 in another plus-matchup with the Las Vegas Raiders next week.

  • Jake Elliott Nails Two Field Goals Sunday Night

    Philadelphia Eagles kicker Jake Elliott converted both of his field goal attempts and made four of five extra point attempts during the team's 40-33 victory over the Green Bay Packers. It was by far the busiest the 27-year-old had been all season. Elliott hit from 31 and 54 yards away in the fourth quarter but missed his second extra-point attempt early in the game. Philadelphia found little resistance to get into scoring range Sunday night, and Elliott capitalized on it for fantasy managers. The sixth-year kicker has had a down season for fantasy purposes, but he will look to follow up his best performance of the season next week against Tennessee. He will be on the streaming radar in Week 13.

  • Quez Watkins Scores Again In Week 12

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Quez Watkins caught three of five targets for 35 yards and one touchdown during the team's 40-33 victory over the Green Bay Packers. It is the second week in a row the 24-year-old has found the end zone. Watkins has been the biggest target beneficiary since tight end Dallas Goedert (shoulder) was placed on Injured Reserve. Philadelphia's tight end group accumulated one target on Sunday night, proving that the team has shifted the offense to include the slot wide receiver more often while Goedert is out. Watkins has some FLEX appeal in 14-16 team leagues next week with a solid matchup against the Tennessee Titans on deck. Consider the third-year receiver a boom-or-bust WR4 in that matchup.

  • DeAndre Carter Has Career Day In Week 12

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver DeAndre Carter finished with seven receptions for 73 yards and a touchdown in a Week 12 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Carter scored on a 33-yard strike from quarterback Justin Herbert that gave the Chargers a 14-10 lead in the second quarter. His 10 targets were a team-high on Sunday, but more impressively, he tallied career-highs in receptions, receiving yards, and fantasy points. Carter has scored in two of his past three games and has become a legitimate weapon in Los Angeles. Depending on the health of Mike Williams (ankle), Carter could be worth a look in some fantasy leagues heading into an enticing matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 13.

  • A.J. Brown Reels In A Score In Week 12

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver A.J. Brown caught four of his six targets for 46 yards and one touchdown during the team's 40-33 victory over the Green Bay Packers. The 25-year-old also lost a fumble that set the Packers up for a score. Quarterback Jalen Hurts completed just 16 passes on Sunday night, so there was not a ton of production from the Eagles' pass catchers. Philadelphia's rushing attack dominated this game, but Brown salvaged his night by catching a six-yard touchdown in the third quarter. The fourth-year receiver has failed to catch more than five passes since Week 8 but has a solid matchup against the Tennessee secondary in Week 13. Brighter days should be ahead for Philadelphia's leading receiver, and he should be considered a fringe WR1 next week.

  • Keenan Allen Scores For The First Time This Season

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen hauled in five of his seven targets for 49 yards and a touchdown in a Week 12 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. In just his second full game this season, Allen found the end zone for the first time since Week 17 of the 2021 campaign. Although he was out-targeted by DeAndre Carter and Austin Ekeler, Allen is clearly essential to the Chargers' offense and remains a safety valve for quarterback Justin Herbert. The veteran should be considered a rock-solid WR2 moving forward and will have an excellent opportunity to produce in Week 13 against the Las Vegas Raiders.

  • Mike White Excels In His First Start

    New York Jets quarterback Mike White was outstanding in a Week 12 win against the Chicago Bears. White, making his first start of the season in place of the benched Zach Wilson, threw for 315 yards and three touchdowns. He completed 22 of his 28 pass attempts, only took one sack, and did not commit any turnovers. It was a completely different looking offense with White under center, and there's little reason to think he won't continue to start with how poor the offense had looked before him. White should be picked up in most formats, at least as a backup option for now.

  • Austin Ekeler Comes Up Clutch In Week 12

    Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler handled just five carries for 20 rushing yards but added 11 receptions for 60 yards and a touchdown on 15 targets in a dazzling 25-24 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Ekeler was on the receiving end of the one-yard score that led to the game-winning two-point conversion moments later. Despite an underwhelming showing on the ground, Ekeler dominated in PPR formats this week and should continue to be a focal point of this Chargers offense that is trending upwards. An incredibly juicy matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders is on tap for Week 13.

  • Justin Herbert Tosses Three Scores In Thrilling Victory

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert completed 35 of his 47 pass attempts for 274 yards and three touchdowns in a 25-24 win over the Arizona Cardinals. Herbert connected with Keenan Allen and DeAndre Carter for scores before finding Austin Ekeler for a one-yard touchdown that put the Chargers within one with just 15 seconds left on the clock. He then hit Gerald Everett for what would be the game-winning two-point conversion. Herbert has now posted two stellar performances in a row with Allen back on the field and Los Angeles' schedule is very enticing from here on out. The 24-year-old will be a high-end QB1 next week against the Las Vegas Raiders, who have allowed over 25 points per game this season.

  • Miles Sanders Explodes For 160 Total Yards And Two Scores

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders took 21 carries for 143 yards and two touchdowns, adding three receptions for 17 yards during the team's 40-33 victory over the Green Bay Packers. The 25-year-old broke his two-game slump, gashing the Packers' defense multiple times and averaging 6.8 yards per carry. Sanders did not start the game as Boston Scott and Kenneth Gainwell took carries on the first drive, but he came out and put the fears of a bad game to rest, putting up his highest rushing yardage total of the season. The fourth-year back now has eight rushing touchdowns on the season, a career-high. He will look to continue to roll against the Tennessee Titans next week. Consider Sanders a rock-solid RB2 in that matchup.

  • Jalen Hurts Breaks All-Time Eagles Quarterback Single Game-Rushing Record

    Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts completed 16-of-28 passes for 153 yards and two touchdowns, adding 157 rushing yards on 17 carries during the team's 40-33 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night. The 24-year-old broke the Eagles' all-time rushing yardage record in a single game. Philadelphia beat down the Packers' defense with their rushing attack, gaining a total of 363 yards on the ground. Hurts was not running the ball at a high rate from Weeks 6-10 but has a total of 33 carries for 243 yards over the past two weeks. The third-year quarterback is one of the best fantasy quarterbacks right now and will look to continue to roll next week against the Tennessee Titans. He should be considered a top-three fantasy option in Week 13.

  • Aaron Rodgers Questionable To Return On Sunday

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (oblique) is questionable to return to Sunday night's matchup against Philadelphia. The signal-caller is already dealing with a thumb injury, so another ailment added to his list wouldn't be ideal regarding his availability moving forward. Rodgers was having a fantastic evening before taking the hit that resulted in his premature departure, amassing 140 yards and two touchdowns off 11-for-16 passing. He was observed exiting the locker room and walking back to the field without his shoulder pads, so it appears Jordan Lovecould be under center for the remainder of the contest.

  • Elijah Mitchell May Have An MCL Sprain

    San Francisco 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell (knee) didn't return to Sunday's win over the Saints. Fortunately, the 24-year-old may have avoided anything serious, with head coach Kyle Shanahan stating that Mitchell likely sprained his MCL, although it's not the same Knee that forced him to sit out seven games this season. In total, he has missed 15 games throughout his brief career, and it's probable he misses more moving forward. Nonetheless, Mitchell will undergo further testing. However, based on his lack of production during the 2022-23 campaign and the addition of Christian McCaffrey, it won't make much of a difference to fantasy managers if he's not in the lineup.

  • Darnell Mooney May Be Done For The Year

    Chicago Bears wide receiver Darnell Mooney (ankle) was injured during the Week 12 loss to the Jets. While the team was optimistic, there is fear that the 25-year-old could require season-ending surgery. After being unproductive for most of the entire 2022-23 campaign, he showed signs of life by accruing two touchdowns in the last three weeks heading into Sunday's matchup. However, even if Mooney can return, Justin Fields' (shoulder) current ailment may keep him off the field as well, which wouldn't do the wideout any favors. Nonetheless, he will undergo further testing on Monday, but it's not looking good. As a result, Chase Claypool, Byron Pringle, and Dante Pettis may battle for targets from whoever is under center for the rest of the year.

  • Browns Defense Notches Three Sacks In Week 12 Win

    The Cleveland Browns defense played well in a 23-17 overtime win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12. Cleveland was unable to force any turnovers but they sacked Tom Brady three times to pick up the win in overtime. The Cleveland defense has struggled at times this season but they came up big in overtime, preventing the Bucs from scoring despite Tampa Bay getting the ball first. Cleveland's defense has a chance at being productive again in Week 13 in a road game against a struggling Houston Texans offense.

  • George Kittle Has Down Game

    San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle caught three passes for 26 yards in the Niners' 13-0 home win over the New Orleans Saints in Week 12. He played 97% of the Niners' offensive snaps and ran 33 routes but was only targeted four times. Kittle has had more than four targets in six of his nine games this season, but he is due a down game every now and then. Prior to Sunday's game, he caught a touchdown pass in three of the past four games. Kittle will look to find the end zone again in Week 13 against the Miami Dolphins.

  • Marquise Brown Has Six Catches In Return

    Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquise Brown had six receptions for 48 yards during the loss to the Chargers on Sunday. The wideout hadn't played since Week 6. However, he returned and led his team in catches and targets. It was certainly an impressive performance from Brown, especially considering how much time he missed. Nonetheless, Hollywood could see even more work in Week 14, after Arizona's bye. Fantasy managers should consider him a starting option for that one.

  • Cade York Hits One Of Two FGs In Week 12

    Cleveland Browns kicker Cade York made one of his two field goals and both of his extra points in a 23-17 overtime win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12. York made a 51-yard field goal in the first quarter but then missed badly from 39 yards in the second quarter. It has been a shaky rookie year for the fourth-round pick out of LSU as he has made just 17 of his 23 field-goal attempts. York will not be a strong fantasy option against the Houston Texans in Week 13.

  • David Njoku Finds The End Zone In Week 12

    Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku caught five of his seven targets for 29 yards and a touchdown in a 23-17 overtime win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12. Njoku was relatively quiet for much of the game before he made a spectacular, one-handed catch in the back of the end zone on fourth-and-10 to tie the game and send it into overtime. Njoku appears to be fully over the ankle sprain that forced him to miss two games and will settle in as a solid TE1 heading into a Week 13 matchup against the Houston Texans.

  • Tyler Higbee Doesn't See Target In Week 12

    Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee made no catches in the Rams' 10-26 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Higbee (knee) was limited at practice this past week but ended up suiting up. His playing time was limited, however. He was on the field for 59% of the first team snaps and ran only 10 routes. He was not targeted once. With more time to recover and the likely return of QB Matthew Stafford, Higbee could do better in Week 13 against the Seattle Seahawks.

  • Donovan Peoples-Jones Goes For 16 Yards In Week 12

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones caught two of his four targets for 16 yards in a 23-17 overtime win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12. Peoples-Jones' slow outing broke a streak of seven straight games with at least 50 receiving yards. The third-year wideout has been relatively consistent this season, despite Week 12's dud, and should see an increase in production with Deshaun Watson coming off an 11-game suspension. Peoples-Jones should remain in fantasy lineups as a solid flex option heading into a Week 13 matchup against the Houston Texans.

    Nov 27 · Source via Browns Donovan Peoples-Jones
  • Amari Cooper Draws 12 Targets In Week 12

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Amari Cooper caught seven of his 12 targets for 94 yards in a 23-17 overtime win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12. Cooper had an up-and-down game as he committed a tough drop that would have converted a fourth down in the fourth quarter. He was able to atone for that, however, with a 45-yard reception down the right sideline to put the Browns into position to score the game-winning touchdown in overtime. Cooper has drawn double-digit targets in six of his 11 games played this year and could have room to improve with Deshaun Watson returning to the field next week. Cooper will be a WR2 heading into a Week 13 matchup against the Houston Texans.

  • Deebo Samuel Makes Three Catches For 43 Yards

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel hauled in three of seven targets for 43 yards in the Niners' 13-0 home win over the New Orleans Saints in Week 12. The 26-year-old also took two carries for no net gain. Samuel's production in the passing game has been on the declining since Brandon Aiyuk began to breakout. His rushing volume has also declined since Week 3. Samuel is still a viable starter but no longer a WR1. He will look to get back on track in Week 13 against the Miami Dolphins.

  • Kareem Hunt Quiet In Week 12 Win

    Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt carried the ball five times for 15 yards and added a six-yard reception in a 23-17 overtime win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12. For the fourth time in his past six contests, Hunt was held to 15 rushing yards or fewer. While the Browns used to be content to split the work relatively even between Hunt and Nick Chubb, the latter has mostly taken over the Cleveland backfield this season. Hunt will be a low-end flex play heading into a Week 13 road matchup against the Houston Texans.

  • Brandon Aiyuk Gains 65 Yards In Win

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk caught five passes for 65 yards in the Niners' 13-0 home win over the New Orleans Saints in Week 12. He led the team in targets with eight. The 24-year-old began heating up in the second-quarter, making two catches for over 20 yards each in the same drive. After a stretch of games in which he finished as a WR1-2, he is set to finish as a WR3-4 this week. He'll look to get back to WR1 status in Week 13 against the Miami Dolphins.

  • Nick Chubb Scores Game-Winning TD In Overtime

    Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb carried the ball 26 times for 116 yards and a touchdown while adding a 16-yard reception in a 23-17 overtime win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12. Chubb set a season high with 26 carries, including five totes in overtime, on the way to leading his team to the win. His three-yard touchdown run was the game-winning score in overtime, sending the Browns to their fourth win of the season. Chubb now has 12 rushing touchdowns on the year, tying his previous career high, set back in 2020. Chubb will be a solid RB1 heading into a Week 13 road matchup against the Houston Texans.

  • Broncos Defense Is A Bust Against Carolina

    The Denver Broncos defense came into their Week 12 matchup against the Carolina Panthers as a strong streaming option versus quarterback Sam Darnold, who was making his first start of the season. However, one of the stingiest defenses in the league in terms of giving up points and total yards fell flat on Sunday in Carolina and allowed the Darnold-led Panthers offense to put up 23 points. They allowed 349 total yards, including 185 on the ground. The Broncos defense also failed to sack Darnold and created just one turnover on the day in a highly disappointing performance. The Denver D will have their hands full with the Baltimore Ravens and dual-threat quarterback Lamar Jackson in Week 13, where they will be a very shaky low-upside streaming option in fantasy.

  • Jacoby Brissett Throws For 210 Yards In Overtime Win

    Cleveland Browns quarterback Jacoby Brissett completed 23 of his 37 passes for 210 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in a 23-17 overtime win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12. He added 27 yards on two carries in the contest. Brissett was quiet for most of the game before he found Amari Cooper for receptions of 17 and 45 yards in overtime to set up Nick Chubb's game-winning, three-yard touchdown run. His touchdown pass went for 12 yards on an exceptional one-handed catch by David Njoku in the back of the end zone to send the game into overtime. The veteran quarterback will head to the bench now as Deshaun Watson's 11-game suspension comes to an end this week. Brissett will operate as Watson's backup against the Houston Texans on the road in Week 13.

  • Brandon McManus Quiet In Week 12 Loss

    Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus gave his fantasy managers just four points in the 23-10 loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 12 on Sunday. After making three field goals in last week's overtime loss to the Las Vegas Raiders, McManus disappointed by making one of his two field-goal tries and his only extra-point attempt against Carolina. The 31-year-old has seen his fair share of field-goal tries in 2022 due to Denver's low-octane offense, but the lowest-scoring unit in football just isn't giving him enough chances to kick for points to make him a viable streaming option. Fantasy managers are better off looking elsewhere at the position when the Broncos take on the Baltimore Ravens in Week 13.

  • John Bates Scores First Touchdown Of The Season

    Washington Commanders tight end John Bates caught three-of-four targets for 24 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Atlanta Falcons. Bates has been a background player on this Washington roster for most of the year, but he saw more work in Week 12. Many thought that veteran tight end Logan Thomas would be the beneficiary of this strong matchup against the Falcons, but it was the second-year tight end who saw the more opportunity. While the solid performance was a pleasant surprise from the 25-year-old, his lack of previous usage keeps him irrelevant in fantasy.

  • Commanders Defense Comes Up Clutch

    The Washington Commanders defense had a solid outing in Sunday's win over the Atlanta Falcons. In sloppy weather conditions, the group allowed just 13 points while accumulating one sack and one huge interception by cornerback Kendall Fuller late in the fourth quarter. After a second-straight strong showing, they'll be taking on a less favorable matchup against the New York Giants in Week 13, where they'll be in the streaming conversation for fantasy managers.

  • Terry McLaurin Disappoints In Favorable Matchup

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught four-of-six targets for 48 yards along with one carry for five yards in Sunday's win over the Atlanta Falcons. While McLaurin was Washington's leader in receptions and receiving yards, the performance was one of his lowest yardage totals of the season. With Taylor Heinicke as his quarterback, the 27-year-old is seeing much more work. However, the ceiling for large performances has been fairly low as of late with Heinicke operating as a game manager for this offense. McLaurin should have better performances down the road, but his last two weeks have been pretty mediocre.

  • Brian Robinson Goes Over 100 Yards In Week 12

    Washington Commanders running back Brian Robinson had 18 carries for 105 yards along with two receptions for 20 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Atlanta Falcons. After looking like the second man in this backfield just a week ago, the rookie took over in Week 12. Robinson posted the first 100-yard performance of his career while also seeing solid usage in the receiving game as he scored Washington's first touchdown of the day on a 14-yard pass from quarterback Taylor Heinicke. This was a strong performance from Robinson that he should be able to build on if he continues to see this kind of workload.

  • Christian McCaffrey Disappoints In Week 13

    San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey carried the ball 11 times for 32 yards in the Niners' 13-0 home win over the New Orleans Saints in Week 12. He also caught four passes for 17 yards. His 49 scrimmage yards is the fewest since he joined San Francisco and his fewest of the season since Week 4. He has had fewer carries each of the past two weeks than he did in his first two weeks as a starter for San Fran. Such usage might worry fantasy managers, but usually McCaffrey can make the most of limited carries. If fellow RB Elijah Mitchell, with whom he is splitting carries, misses time because of his ankle injury, CMC could have more opportunities in Week 13 against the Miami Dolphins and in future weeks.

  • Antonio Gibson Totals 55 Scoreless Yards

    Washington Commanders running back Antonio Gibson rushed nine times for 32 yards along with three receptions for 22 yards in Sunday's win over the Atlanta Falcons. After impressing in Week 11, Gibson came out with a dud in Week 12 as the Commanders continuously went back to Brian Robinson. The 24-year-old has been seeing receiving work out of the backfield, but he even fell off in that area as well, with Robinson seeing just as many targets. This backfield is looking like a crapshoot on a weekly basis with only one player benefitting during each game. While Gibson has plenty of talent, you never know what you're getting weekly, making him a high-risk play.

  • Taylor Heinicke Throws Two Touchdowns In Win

    Washington Commanders quarterback Taylor Heinicke completed 14-of-23 passes for 138 yards with two touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's win over the Atlanta Falcons. In a game that was hampered by weather, Heinicke continued his stretch of unimpressive offensive play that leads to team wins. Throughout his time as the starter this season, the 29-year-old has won five-of-six starts. Heinicke is looking like a game-manager quarterback that keeps his team out of trouble for most of the game. With his recent production, he's looking like a QB2 the rest of the way.

  • Brandon Johnson Scores First Career Touchdown

    Denver Broncos rookie wide receiver Brandon Johnson scored his first career touchdown in the 23-10 loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 12 on Sunday, and the score was also the team's only trip to paydirt on the day. This was only Johnson's second game on the active roster with both Jerry Jeudy (ankle) and KJ Hamler (hamstring) sidelined again this week. The 24-year-old pass-catcher caught two of his four targets for 10 yards and the touchdown, and he has three catches on six targets for 12 yards and one TD in his first two NFL games. Johnson could be active again in Week 13 against the Baltimore Ravens if Jeudy and/or Hamler remain out, but fantasy managers should look elsewhere.

  • Greg Dulcich Does Very Little Against Panthers

    Denver Broncos rookie tight end Greg Dulcich continued his trend of being barely involved in the offense in the 23-10 loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 12 on Sunday on the road. Dulcich caught two of only three targets for 11 yards. His three targets were tied with receiver Montrell Washington and were tied for his season low in his NFL debut against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 6. The 22-year-old was rising quickly in the fantasy ranks at the thinnest position after catching 12 of 17 targets for 182 yards and a touchdown in his first three games. But in three games since, he has only eight catches on 12 targets for 52 scoreless yards. Dulcich's recent stretch has been even more disappointing based on the fact that receiver Jerry Jeudy (ankle) has been hurt.

  • Elijah Mitchell Gains 46 Yards Before Getting Injured

    San Francisco 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell (knee) carried the ball seven times for 35 yards in the Niners' 13-0 home win over the New Orleans Saints in Week 12. The 24-year-old also caught two passes for eight yards. He left the game in the third quarter with a knee injury and did not return. While Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan said he doesn't think the injury is as bad as the MCL sprain Mitchell suffered in Week 1, any injury brings back bad memories for 49ers fans and fantasy managers. The second-year running back only returned from that injury in Week 10. Monitor Mitchell's status ahead of his Week 13 matchup against the Miami Dolphins.

  • Kendall Hinton Draws Team-High Nine Targets

    Denver Broncos wide receiver Kendall Hinton had a big role in the team's 23-10 Week 12 loss to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. With Jerry Jeudy (ankle) missing his second straight game, Hinton caught three of his team-high nine targets for 35 yards and also had one carry for a 13-yard gain on the ground. It was nice to see the 25-year-old heavily targeted by quarterback Russell Wilson, but the two weren't very efficient. In the last three games, Hinton has gone for 154 receiving yards on 17 targets as the clear No. 2 behind Courtland Sutton. However, there's just very little upside in the lowest scoring offense in the NFL, and Hinton will go back to being off the fantasy radar in Week 13 against the Baltimore Ravens if Jeudy is able to return to action.

  • Courtland Sutton Leads Broncos In Receiving In Week 12

    Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton had a team-high 75 receiving yards in the 23-10 loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 12 with Jerry Jeudy (ankle) out for the second straight game. Sutton had a team-high six receptions on eight targets, which were second-most on the team. The 27-year-old has become more reliable of late for his fantasy managers with Jeudy sidelined, and he has at least six catches and 66 yards in each of the last three contests. It remains to be seen if Jeudy will be able to return in Week 13 against the Baltimore Ravens, but if he doesn't, Sutton will once again have WR2 upside in a low-scoring Broncos offense. Sutton's ceiling has been pretty non-existent in this offense, and he has just one touchdown all year in 11 games.

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster Quiet Against Rams

    Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster was targeted just three times in Sunday's win over the Rams, catching all three passes for 38 yards. Smith-Schusterwho was returning from a concussionmade the best of his opportunities, but with Patrick Mahomes targeting 10 different players, there just weren't a lot of chances to go around. Smith-Schuster's still a WR3 with upside going forward, as the Chiefs offense should produce better most weeks than it did on Sunday.

  • Latavius Murray Falls Just Shy Of 100 Rushing Yards

    Denver Broncos running back Latavius Murray took advantage of his new role as the unquestioned leader of the Broncos backfield in the 23-10 loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 12 on Sunday, carrying the ball a team-high 13 times for a season-high 92 yards (7.1 yards per carry). He caught his only target in the passing game for a six-yard gain. Kendall Hinton, Marlon Mack and Montrell Washington combined for four carries behind Murray, so the 32-year-old should continue to see the lion's share of the backfield workload moving forward, albeit in the league's lowest-scoring offense. Murray should be considered a touchdown-dependent, low-upside RB2/3 heading into a Week 13 date with the Baltimore Ravens.

  • Travis Kelce Finds End Zone In Week 12

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce caught four passes for 57 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Rams. He was targeted a team-high eight times. Kelce has now caught 12 touchdowns this season, but this game also saw him finish with his fewest yards since Week 5. But if 57 yards and a score is someone's worst game this month, that really just speaks to how important Kelce is in fantasy. The gap between him and the rest of the tight ends in the league is immense.

  • Russell Wilson Goes Under 200 Yards In Loss To Panthers

    Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson's disappointing first season in Denver continued in the 23-10 loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 12. Wilson went 19-for-35 on the day for 142 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions while being sacked three times. He ran the ball twice for eight yards and also lost a fumble in yet another poor performance with the Broncos falling to 3-8 on the season. The Broncos' offensive line isn't doing Wilson any favors, but the 33-year-old signal-caller just isn't playing good football, either. It didn't help that he was again without receiver Jerry Jeudy (ankle), but even if Jeudy returns in Week 13 against the Baltimore Ravens, Wilson will be a low-upside, low-end QB2 in fantasy.

  • Josh Oliver Finds The End Zone Against Jacksonville

    Baltimore Ravens tight end Josh Oliver led his team in receiving in Week 12 against Jacksonville, finishing with four catches for 76 yards and a touchdown. The 25-year-old had his first touchdown in over two months, so his season has been a disappointment. There's a shot Oliver may continue to stay involved in Week 13 versus the Broncos. However, there's a better chance he won't do much of anything moving ahead.

  • Isiah Pacheco Dominates Backfield Touches In Week 12

    Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Isiah Pacheco had 22 of the team's 30 carries in Sunday's win over the Los Angeles Rams, finishing with 69 rushing yards and a touchdown. He also had a 17-yard reception. Pacheco has taken clear control of this Kansas City backfield over the last few games, and it's clear that Jerick McKinnon and Ronald Jones won't cut into that role very much. Pacheco should be viewed as an RB2 option because of his workload, though the Chiefs offense is usually fairly pass-heavy.

  • DeSean Jackson Finishes With 74 Receiving Yards In Week 12

    Baltimore Ravens wide receiver DeSean Jackson was active for Sunday's meeting with Jacksonville. While the veteran only had two catches, he still finished with 74 receiving yards, two yards fewer than Josh Oliver's 76. Considering how thin the Ravens' receiving corps has been, Jackson may continue to get some looks from Lamar Jackson in Week 13 against Denver. However, L. Jackson hasn't been the most accurate quarterback, so that won't help D. Jackson make a difference for fantasy managers, at least consistently.

  • Mark Andrews Held To Four Catches In Week 12

    Baltimore Ravens tight end Mark Andrews finished with four catches for 50 yards during Sunday's loss to the Jags. The veteran led the team with seven targets. However, DeSean Jackson and Josh Oliver were more productive. That said, Andrews missed some time this season, so perhaps he's still not where he needs to be. Lamar Jackson has also struggled from an accuracy standpoint, so that hasn't helped either. Nonetheless, Andrews should get back on track sometime soon, so fantasy managers need to keep him in the starting lineup against the Denver Broncos in Week 13.

  • Patrick Mahomes Solid Against Rams

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes didn't have his best showing on Sunday against the Rams, but even Mahomes when he's not at his best is pretty good. He was 27-for-42 for 320 yards in the win, throwing a touchdown on the first drive, but then failing to find the end zone again. He was picked off once, and also added 36 rushing yards. Mahomes is a must-start QB1 every week.

  • Kenyan Drake Logs Two Carries In Week 12

    Baltimore Ravens running back Kenyan Drake had two carries for two yards during the disappointing loss to Jacksonville on Sunday. With Gus Edwards (knee, hamstring) back on the field and finishing with 52 yards and a touchdown off 16 carries, Drake was left scrounging for touches. At this rate, Edwards should remain the primary option out of the backfield in Week 13 against Denver (assuming he stays healthy), so Drake likely won't be featured in many fantasy lineups for the foreseeable future.

  • Gus Edwards Finds The End Zone In Return

    Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards (knee, hamstring) finished with 52 yards and a touchdown off 16 carries during the loss to the Jaguars on Sunday. Edwards was active for the first time since Week 8, but quickly reclaimed his spot as the No. 1 option on the depth chart. As long as the 27-year-old remains healthy, he'll continue to lead the backfield. As a result, Kenyan Drake, who had two touches in Week 12, likely won't see much work moving ahead.

  • Lamar Jackson Doesn't Lead Team To A Victory In Week 12

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson threw for 254 yards and a touchdown during the last-second loss to the Jaguars on Sunday. He also added 14 carries for 89 yards. After totaling 10 passing touchdowns in the first three weeks of the 2022-23 campaign, the signal-caller has tossed one or less in all but one of his last eight games. While Jackson is still one of the league's best fantasy quarterbacks, managers hope he gets on track against the Broncos in Week 13.

  • DeAndre Hopkins Finds The End Zone On Sunday

    Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins finished with four catches for 87 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's loss to the Chargers. With Marquise Brown (ankle) active, Hopkins was targeted only six times, his second-lowest mark of the season. However, the 30-year-old has had a fantastic 2022-23 campaign, finding the end zone in three of his six appearances. While Brown may continue to cut into Hopkins' production, there should be room for both men to make some noise for fantasy managers moving ahead.

  • Van Jefferson Scores Touchdown In Week 12

    Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Van Jefferson caught three passes for 29 yards and a touchdown in the Rams' 10-26 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. In a game in which the Rams offense was banged up, that was good enough to lead the team in all receiving categories. QB Matthew Stafford and WR Van Jefferson II could be back in Week 13 when the Rams take on the Seattle Seahawks at home. The return of Stafford would almost certainly help Jefferson by raising LA's QB play. The return of Robinson might cost Jefferson some target share, but it also could make the Rams move the ball more effectively overall.

  • Allen Robinson II Needs Surgery, Won't Return This Season

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Allen Robinson II (foot) needs surgery and will miss the remainder of the year. Cooper Kupp (ankle) may not be back this season either, so the team will be without its top-two receiving options. Robinson struggled in 2022-23 and will finish his first year in L.A. with only 33 catches for 339 yards and three touchdowns. As a result, Van Jefferson, who had a touchdown in Week 12, and Ben Skowronek may fill the void moving ahead. Tyler Higbee could also be in line for more work.

  • Kyren Williams Leads Rams In Carries

    Los Angeles Rams running back Kyren Williams ran for 35 yards on 11 carries in the Rams' 10-26 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. The 22-year-old rookie also caught three passes for 25 yards. His 11 carries were the most on the team and the most for him this season. Williams's share of carries and touches has increased each week since he returned for the injured reserve in Week 10. His efficiency has not improved, however, but he did have a tough matchup this week, and the Rams' offense was missing key wide receivers, linemen, and its QB1. Williams will look to continue building on his momentum in Week 13 against the Seattle Seahawks.

  • James Conner Logs Season-High 25 Carries On Sunday

    Arizona Cardinals running back James Conner logged a season-high 25 carries in Week 12 against the L.A. Chargers to finish with 120 yards. He also had three catches for 20 yards and a touchdown. The veteran has been on a roll, amassing four touchdowns in the last three games. With DeAndre Hopkins and Marquise Brown back in the lineup and on the field together moving ahead, Conner may get some breathing room to continue producing for fantasy managers in Week 14 versus New England, after the team's bye.

  • Cam Akers Runs For 44 Yards

    Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers ran for 44 yards on nine carries in the Rams' 10-26 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Even with the Rams' top receivers Cooper Kupp and Allen Robinson II out with ankle injuries, Akers did not play any role in LA's passing game. Both rookie RB Kyren Williams and QB Bryce Perkins had more carries than Akers. Averaging 4.6 yards per carry, Akers was fairly efficient. But with as infrequently the Rams run the ball, Akers does not have much fantasy upside as long as he is part of a committee. In Week 13, he will try to get on track in a home tilt against the Seattle Seahawks.

  • Kyler Murray Unable To Lift Cards To A Win

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray finished with 191 yards and two touchdowns (one interception) off 18-for-29 passing during the loss to the Chargers. He also had seven carries for 56 yards and a touchdown. Murray got Marquise Brown (ankle) back after a lengthy layoff, so the signal-caller finally had his top wideouts on the field. However, it didn't matter in the end, as L.A. put together a late scoring drive and a two-point conversion to seal the win. Nevertheless, the 25-year-old has played much better recently than he did at the start of the season, and with Brown and DeAndre Hopkins active, things look promising in Week 14 against the Patriots, after the Cardinals' bye.

  • Bryce Perkins Throws For 100 Yards In First Career Start

    Los Angeles Rams quarterback Bryce Perkins completed 13-of-23 passes for 100 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Rams' 10-26 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. He also led LA in rushing with nine carries for 44 yards. The 25-year-old looked shaky in his first career start. He was sacked three times. He was without two of the Rams' top receivers, Cooper Kupp (ankle) and Allen Robinson II (ankle). Matthew Stafford is in concussion protocol and is said to be improving, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. If Stafford continues to make progress, Perkins will return to his role as a backup in Week 13.

  • Ke'Shawn Vaughn Logs Four Rushing Attempts In OT Loss

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ke'Shawn Vaughn rushed for 15 yards on four attempts in Sunday's 23-17 overtime loss to the Cleveland Browns. He wasn't targeted in the passing game during Sunday's defeat. The 25-year-old backed up Rachaad White and saw an uptick in usage with Leonard Fournette (hip) ruled out, logging a season-high four attempts. White was Tampa Bay's primary back Sunday and had out-touched Vaughn 23-to-4. Vaughn could complement White against the Saints in Week 13 if Fournette is ruled out again, but he would mainly be a dart throw in deep-league formats due to his limited role.

  • Elijah Mitchell Won't Return On Sunday

    San Francisco 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell (knee) won't return to Sunday's game against the Saints. The 24-year-old finished Week 12 with seven carries for 35 yards and two receptions for eight yards, so he was more involved than most had expected. There should be an update on Mitchell's condition soon. However, it wouldn't be surprising if he misses time considering his history.

  • Rex Burkhead Injured In Loss To Miami

    Houston Texans running back Rex Burkhead (head) exited Sunday's meeting with the Miami Dolphins to receive a concussion evaluation. He did not return. The journeyman finished with only one catch for five yards, which isn't surprising considering he hasn't been involved the entire season. Nevertheless, there should be an update on his condition soon, but it shouldn't impact many fantasy managers either way.

  • Elijah Mitchell Questionable To Return Against Saints

    San Francisco 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against New Orleans because of a knee injury. Mitchell had seven carries for a team-high 35 yards and two catches for eight yards, so he's been relatively productive despite Christian McCaffrey's presence. However, injuries aren't anything new for the 24-year-old, making it possible he could miss time moving ahead.

  • Younghoe Koo Productive In Week 12

    Atlanta Falcons kicker Younghoe Koo had a productive performance in the team's 19-13 Week 12 loss to the Washington Commanders. The veteran kicker made both of his field goal attempts from under 50 yards in the game. Unfortunately, he missed his only kick from beyond 50 yards. Meanwhile, Koo converted his only extra-point attempt in the contest. The veteran kicker ended the game with eight fantasy points, a solid number given his wildly inconsistent play this season. Koo has scored 12 or more fantasy points five times this year. However, he scored under seven fantasy points in the other six games before Sunday's contest. Fantasy players will again need to weigh Koo's boom or bust potential next week against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

  • Falcons Defense Struggles Against Commanders

    The Atlanta Falcons defense struggled in the team's 19-13 Week 12 loss to the Washington Commanders. Atlanta had only one turnover in the game, an interception by Mykal Walker in the second quarter. However, they struggled to get pressure on Taylor Heinicke, as the Falcons didn't have a sack in the game. While Atlanta held the Commanders to only 19 points in Week 12, their defense struggled to produce for fantasy players. The Falcons gave up 314 yards of offense in the game, including a career-high 105 rushing yards to Brian Robinson. Despite their matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers next week, fantasy players have no reason to trust the Atlanta defense.

  • MyCole Pruitt Finds The End Zone

    Atlanta Falcons tight end MyCole Pruitt scored the only touchdown of the day in the team's 19-13 Week 12 loss to the Washington Commanders. The veteran tight end had no fantasy impact before Sunday, seeing four targets over the first 11 weeks this year. However, he ended the game catching two of his three targets for nine receiving yards and the four-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter. While the veteran tight end found the end zone, fantasy players shouldn't consider Pruitt a streaming option next week. With Kyle Pitts (knee) out for at least the next three games, if not longer, there isn't an Atlanta tight end worth a spot on your roster.

  • Olamide Zaccheaus Has His Best Game Of The Year

    Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Olamide Zaccheaus had his best performance of the year in the team's 19-13 Week 12 loss to the Washington Commanders. The veteran receiver had a season-high five receptions on eight targets in the game. Over the first 11 games this season, the receiver had four or fewer targets in every contest. Furthermore, Zaccheaus scored a season-high 11.6 half-point PPR fantasy points in Week 12. By comparison, he was averaging 7.7 fantasy points per game before Sunday's matchup against Washington. While he had a productive performance, fantasy players shouldn't expect similar production from Zaccheaus moving forward.

  • Drake London Held To 29 Yards

    Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Drake London had a disappointing performance in the team's 19-13 Week 12 loss to the Washington Commanders. The rookie wide receiver had only four targets in the game, finishing third on the team behind Olamide Zaccheaus (eight) and Cordarrelle Patterson (five). Furthermore, the former USC star caught only two of his targets for 29 receiving yards in the game. After scoring a touchdown in two straight games, London got kept out of the end zone in Week 12. With Kyle Pitts (knee) on injured reserve, fantasy players were hopeful the rookie would earn more targets this week. Instead, he had fewer than five targets for the fourth time this season. Maybe things will turn around next week for London against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

  • Tyler Allgeier Limited Against Commanders

    Atlanta Falcons running back Tyler Allgeier was limited in the team's 19-13 Week 12 loss to the Washington Commanders. The rookie running back had 11 rushing attempts for 54 yards, a team-high. Meanwhile, the veteran Cordarrelle Patterson also had 11 rushing attempts but for 52 yards in the game. However, the former BYU star didn't have a reception in the game, while the veteran back had three for 19 receiving yards. While he has back-to-back performances with over 50 rushing yards, Allgeier has averaged only 6.2 half-point PPR fantasy points per game over the past two weeks. More importantly, he has only one reception for nine yards during the span. The Atlanta backfield is 50-50 split, making Allgeier and Patterson limited flex options.

  • Cordarrelle Patterson Quiet Against Washington

    Atlanta Falcons running back Cordarrelle Patterson had a quiet performance in the team's 19-13 Week 12 loss to the Washington Commanders. The veteran running back had 11 rushing attempts for 52 yards in Week 12. Meanwhile, the rookie Tyler Allgeier also had 11 rushing attempts for 54 yards. However, Patterson had three receptions for 19 receiving yards, while the rookie didn't have a reception in the game. After being the featured back to start the year, the former first-round pick finds himself in a split backfield with Allgeier. More importantly, the veteran running back has averaged only 8.7 rushing attempts for 40.7 yards and 7.3 half-point PPR fantasy points over the past three weeks. Fantasy players should view Patterson as a limited flex option for the rest of the year.

  • Marcus Mariota Has One Touchdown In Week 12

    Atlanta Falcons quarterback Marcus Mariota struggled in the team's 19-13 Week 12 loss to the Washington Commanders. The veteran quarterback completed only 60% of his pass attempts for 174 yards, a touchdown, and an interception. He also added six rushing attempts for 49 yards on the ground. However, the former Oregon Duck had under 190 passing yards for the fourth straight game and the eighth time over the past nine weeks. Despite the appealing matchup against the Commanders, Mariota scored only 13.9 fantasy points. Hopefully, the veteran quarterback can bounce back next week against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Otherwise, the Falcons could make a change at quarterback after their Week 14 bye.

  • Ryan Succop Converts Only Field Goal Attempt In OT Loss

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicker Ryan Succop converted his only field goal attempt, and both extra-point tries in Sunday's 23-17 overtime loss to the Cleveland Browns. He drilled his only field goal attempt from 42 yards and now has been held under single-digit points in back-to-back weeks. The 36-year-old is 23-of-26 in field goal attempts, and a perfect 14-for-14 in extra point tries over 11 games in 2022. Succop has been one of the most reliable fantasy kickers and, despite the recent lackluster performances, remains a solid streaming option against the New Orleans Saints in Week 13.

  • X-Rays Negative On Tristan Wirfs

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive tackle Tristan Wirfs (foot) was carted off the field during Sunday's loss to Cleveland. He was seen wearing a walking boot after the game. Fortunately, while the injury looked severe, X-rays were negative, so the Bucs may have dodged a bullet. Tampa's offensive line has done a fantastic job keeping 45-year-old Tom Brady upright this season. However, Brady could be without one of his top protectors moving ahead, which isn't ideal for an offense that's struggled at times throughout the season.

  • Jaguars Defense Allows 27 Points In Week 12 Victory

    The defense of the Jacksonville Jaguars allowed 27 points to the Baltimore Ravens in Sunday's win at home. Lamar Jackson aired it out for 253 yards and a touchdown while he also rushed for 89 yards on Jacksonville's defense. The Ravens also totaled 162 rushing yards and a touchdown on 35 attempts. On a positive note, the Jaguars forced two fumbles and they held the Ravens to multiple field goals in the red zone, which led to Jacksonville securing the victory. While the Jaguars have allowed 27 points in back-to-back games, the defense will look to put together a better outing in Week 13 versus the Detroit Lions.

  • Cameron Brate Targeted Five Times In OT Loss

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate caught two of five targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 23-17 overtime loss to the Cleveland Browns. The veteran is in a timeshare with rookie tight end Cade Otton. However, Brate out-targeted Otton 5-0 and was fourth on the team in target share in Sunday's defeat. The 31-year-old has caught 16 passes on 29 targets for 137 yards over seven games in 2022. Brate and Otton continue to split time, limiting the fantasy upside of both Bucs' tight ends. Brate is considered a deep-league flier at best against the New Orleans Saints in Week 13.

  • Sam Darnold Will Remain The Starting Quarterback

    Carolina Panthers quarterback Sam Darnold will remain the starter, at least for the team's Week 14 matchup against the Seahawks. Darnold finished the Week 12 win over the Broncos with 164 yards and a touchdown off 11-for-19 passing. While it wasn't the most productive showing, the signal-caller played well enough to maintain his grasp on the No. 1 position on the depth chart. That said, Darnold has a way to go before he's labeled a starting fantasy quarterback. At the same time, desperate fantasy managers who still have Baker Mayfield on the roster should hang on to him for now, especially since there's a chance he may be back under center before the end of the 2022-23 campaign.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Julio Jones caught three of four targets for 40 yards in Sunday's 23-17 overtime loss to the Cleveland Browns. He was third on the team with three catches behind Chris Godwin (12) and Rachaad White (nine). The 33-year-old has now caught at least three passes in back-to-back games. The veteran wideout has 14 catches for 218 yards and two touchdowns over six games in 2022. Jones is Tampa Bay's third option behind Mike Evans and Godwin, making him mainly a flex option in deep league formats against the New Orleans Saints in Week 13.

  • Riley Patterson Makes Two Field Goals In Week 12 Win

    Jacksonville Jaguars kicker Riley Patterson converted both of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 28-27 victory over the Baltimore Ravens at home. It was a positive performance for the young kicker as he made only three of his previous six field-goal attempts in his last two games. With two field goals in Week 12, the 23-year-old kicker has now made multiple field goals in five games this season. Considering that the Jaguars could be involved in another high-scoring affair in Week 13 with the Detroit Lions, Patterson could be a viable streaming option with a couple of teams on a bye week.

  • Michael Carter Has A Sprained Ankle

    New York Jets running back Michael Carter suffered a sprained ankle during the Week 12 win over the Bears, according to head coach Robert Saleh. However, Saleh wasn't sure about the severity of the ailment. With Breece Hall (knee) done for the year, Carter had taken over the No. 1 spot on the depth chart. He struggled on Sunday, amassing only 21 yards off six touches while adding two catches for 15 yards. Yet, the team is certainly hoping for a positive update ahead of the Week 13 meeting against the Vikings. That said, Zonovan Knight, who had 14 carries for 69 yards and three receptions for 34 yards, may get more work if Carter can't suit up for that one. Ty Johnson, who had a touchdown in Week 12, would also likely remain involved.

  • Mike Evans Quiet In OT Loss To Browns

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans caught two of nine targets for 31 yards in Sunday's 23-17 overtime loss to the Cleveland Browns. He was tied for second with Rachaad White with nine targets but averaged just 3.4 yards per target. The 29-year-old hasn't found the end zone since Week 4 and has now been held under 60 receiving yards in three straight games. The veteran wideout will look to turn things around against the New Orleans Saints in Week 13. Evans is considered a mid-range WR2 after catching three passes for 61 yards in his previous game against the Saints in Week 2.

  • Evan Engram Catches One Pass In Week 12 Win

    Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram brought in his lone target for four yards in Sunday's impressive 28-27 win over the Baltimore Ravens. The veteran tight end didn't see much action in Week 12 despite Trevor Lawrence attempting 37 passes and completing 29 of them for 321 yards and three touchdowns. It's been a rough patch for the former first-round pick as he's accrued only five receptions for 26 yards on seven targets in his last three games. Following a disappointing outing in Week 12, Engram will look to put his recent woes to rest in Week 13 against the Detroit Lions.

    Carolina Panthers kicker Eddy Pineiro converted on all three of his field goal attempts and both of his extra-point tries in a 23-10 victory over the Denver Broncos.

Pineiro will hope to carry this momentum through the team's Week 13 bye and find similar success against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 14.

  • Cole Kmet Sees A Team-High Six Targets

    Chicago Bears tight end Cole Kmet caught three passes for 27 yards in the team's 31-10 loss to the Jets in Week 12.

  • Terrace Marshall Jr. Disappears In Week 12 Win

    Carolina Panthers wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr. hauled in just one of his three targets for eight yards in a Week 12 win over the Denver Broncos.

  • Zay Jones Explodes For 145 Receiving Yards In Week 12 Win

    Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Zay Jones hauled in 11 of his 14 targets for 145 receiving yards in Sunday's 28-27 win over the Baltimore Ravens. Jones led all wideouts on the Jaguars with 14 targets and he had more receiving yards than Christian Kirk, Jamal Agnew, and Marvin Jones Jr. combined. Trevor Lawrence was highly efficient in the Week 12 win at home and the former second-round pick out of East Carolina proved to be a reliable option for the young quarterback. While it's tough to expect Jones to outgain his wide receiver mates every week, he should be considered a viable flex option in deeper leagues moving forward.

  • Nico Collins Targeted Nine Times Against Miami

    Houston Texans wide receiver Nico Collins led the team in targets in Sunday's loss to the Miami Dolphins, as quarterback Kyle Allen looked his direction nine times. Collins ended up catching six of those for 44 yards. It wasn't a great showing, largely because the Texans offense couldn't move the ball in the first half. But with the change at quarterback, it was encouraging to see that Collins led the team in targets again, continuing a trend from the past month. He's a WR4 right now, but he has more upside than Brandin Cooks.

  • Tyler Boyd Held To Two Catches In Week 12

    Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd caught only two of his four targets for 16 yards during the win over Tennessee on Sunday. With Ja'Marr Chase (hip, labrum) sidelined, fantasy managers were expecting more out of Boyd. However, the wideout has had just four receptions in the last two games. Boyd should get back on track at some point, so he'll likely remain a flex option in all formats moving ahead, including in Week 13 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

  • Chris Godwin Reels In 12 Catches In OT Loss To Browns

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin caught 12 of 13 targets for 110 yards in Sunday's 23-17 overtime loss to the Cleveland Browns. He led the Bucs in catches, targets, and receiving yards in Sunday's defeat. The 26-year-old logged his first double-digit reception game of the season and has now seen at least 10 targets in five of his last six weeks. Godwin continues to see a heavy volume of targets and is considered a borderline WR1 against the New Orleans Saints in Week 13.

    Chicago Bears wide receiver Chase Claypool caught two passes for 51 yards in the team's 31-10 loss to the Jets in Week 12. Claypool was involved early, catching a pass for a first down and then hauling in a beautiful 31-yard jump-ball reception to set up an early field goal. Claypool would see five targets in the game, including a target in the end zone. It was a positive development to see the Bears offense give Claypool opportunities down the field but his production will be capped as long as backup Trevor Siemian is under center. Starting quarterback Justin Fields status in Week 13 will dictate the fantasy value for all Bears offensive players heading into next week.

  • DJ Moore Shines With Quarterback Change In Week 12

    Carolina Panthers wide receiver DJ Moore finished with four receptions for 103 yards and a touchdown on six targets in a Week 12 win over the Denver Broncos. Moore posted some of the best production of his career early in the 2021 season with Sam Darnold at quarterback, and it seems that the duo still has a fair amount of chemistry. Assuming the Panthers continue to roll with Darnold under center, Moore can be viewed as a low-end WR2 when the team returns from its Week 13 bye.

  • Christian Kirk Limited To 46 Receiving Yards In Week 12 Victory

    Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Christian Kirk caught only four of his nine targets for 46 yards while having one rushing attempt for negative five yards in Sunday's win over the Baltimore Ravens. The dynamic wideout and Trevor Lawrence weren't able to get on the same page until the second half as the second-year quarterback had five of his eight incompletions when targeting Kirk. The former second-round pick left with an injury for a couple of plays before returning and it doesn't appear to be a concern moving forward. Despite Kirk's quiet outing in Week 12, he'll have a solid chance to bounce back in Week 13 versus the Detroit Lions.

  • Trevor Siemian Struggles In Spot-Start

    Chicago Bears quarterback Trevor Siemian completed 14-of-25 passes for 179 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the team's blowout loss to the Jets 31-10. Siemian got the start for the injured Justin Fields and even popped up on the injury report minutes before the game after injuring his oblique in warmups. The Bears played him anyways and Siemian actually posted a quality first drive for an early field goal. The Bears offense would disintegrate from there and Siemian struggled to move the chains. The veteran passer could be under center again next week against the Packers but Fields' status will need to be monitored daily heading into Week 13.

  • Dolphins Defense Enjoys Huge Week 12 Versus Texans

    The Miami Dolphins' defense came up big during Sunday's win over the Houston Texans. The unit logged four sacks, two interceptions, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and one touchdown in the contest. Elandon Roberts, Jaelan Phillips, Duke Riley, and Bradley Chubb were responsible for taking down quarterback Kyle Allen. Meanwhile, Andrew Van Ginkel and Verone McKinley III picked off one pass each. Finally, Xavien Howard recovered a loose fumble and returned it 16 yards to the house. Although Miami was a great streaming option this week, they'll lack fantasy appeal when they take on a strong 49ers offense in Week 13.

  • Austin Hooper Posts 30 Receiving Yards

    Tennessee Titans tight end Austin Hooper caught three of his four targets for 30 yards in the 20-16 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Hooper, like most tight ends, is a mere touchdown-or-bust fantasy asset, so even after catching two touchdowns in Week 11 against the Green Bay Packers, he shouldn't be considered a strong fantasy option unless the matchup is very favorable. Treylon Burks is the only Titans' pass-catcher with weekly fantasy intrigue.

  • Kyle Allen Picked Off Twice Against Dolphins

    Houston Texans quarterback Kyle Allen was 26-for-39 in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins, throwing for 215 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. Allen managed a couple of good drives in the second half to boost his overall numbers, but his first start for Houston was largely disappointing, and the 215 yards don't really tell the real story about how much Allen struggled. If he sticks as Houston's starter, he's a low-end QB2 at best.

  • Jason Sanders Hits Half-Dozen Kicks In Big Week 12

    Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders was successful against the Houston Texans on Sunday, going 3-for-3 on field goals and 3-for-3 on extra points. His made field goals came from 23, 35, and 45 yards out. The 27-year-old has been a bit inconsistent due to some poor accuracy as of late, but as Sunday's performance showed, Sanders certainly has top-12 upside any given week. If you're looking for some help at the kicker position and Sanders is available, he's worth rostering given his role in the strong Miami offense.

  • Joe Burrow Leads Bengals To A Win Over Tennessee

    Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow tossed for 270 yards during the win over the Tennessee Titans. He also threw a touchdown, connecting with Tee Higgins in the fourth quarter, while adding nine carries for 32 yards. Cincinnati's offensive line held up, holding the Titans' defense to only one sack on the afternoon, which certainly helped the former LSU Tiger be productive. With three straight wins in the books for the Bengals, Burrow and company will host the Chiefs in Week 13 for an AFC Championship rematch. Although the signal-caller has completed less than 61% of his throws in the last two games, he should remain a must-start fantasy option in all formats.

  • Sam Darnold Leads Panthers To Week 12 Win

    In his first start of the season, Carolina Panthers quarterback Sam Darnold completed 11 of 19 pass attempts for 164 yards and one touchdown in a 23-10 victory over the Denver Broncos. Despite a tough matchup, Darnold got the job done and displayed pre-existing chemistry with DJ Moore, who was on the receiving end of a five-yard score in the first quarter. The Panthers could choose to go back to PJ Walker (ankle) when healthy, but for the time being, Darnold seems like an upgrade for Carolina's offensive weapons. The team will head into a Week 13 bye before returning to a matchup with the Seattle Seahawks in Week 14.
