49ers ILB Navorro Bowman (knee, PUP) has still not resumed practicing.

Bowman has not had any setbacks as he comes off ACL and MCL surgery sustained last January. But he's still not feeling right and it's unclear when he'll return to action. The 49ers have until Dec. 9 to decide whether to put Bowman on their active roster or keep him on PUP for the rest of the season.

The Indianapolis Star says "it's becoming more and more apparent that (Reggie Wayne) has lost a step."

Wayne was not good against the Jags on Sunday, catching 3-of-9 targets for 10 yards and failing to separate. It's what we'd expect out of a 36-year-old wideout one year removed from blowing out his knee. Wayne isn't going anywhere as a solid possession receiver and security blanket for Andrew Luck, but he's capped at the WR3 level. He's averaging just 4.0 catches for 44.2 yards with one touchdown over the last five weeks.

Kyle Rudolph played on 61-of-69 snaps in Sunday's loss to the Packers.

In his first game off sports hernia surgery in Week 11, Rudolph played on just 14 snaps and had no catches. The chains were taken off Sunday, as he went 3-50-0 on five targets and got back to a near every-down role. Given the thin state of the tight end position and Rudolph's red-zone chops, he's a TE1 candidate against the Panthers in Week 13.

Vikings WR Charles Johnson played on 67-of-69 snaps in Sunday's loss to the Packers.

Even with Greg Jennings (ribs) and Jarius Wright (hamstring) active, Johnson was a full-time player. It's an exciting revelation for a player we've long been tracking because he goes 6'2/217 and runs a 4.38. Over the last two weeks, Johnson has totaled 9-139-1 on a team-high 18 targets, emerging as the No. 1 receiver for Teddy Bridgewater. Johnson makes for an intriguing deeper-league streamer in a home game against the Panthers' weak corner corps in Week 13. Jennings is done, Patterson is far too raw and Wright is a sub-average player that's been passed on the depth chart.

Aaron Rodgers said the Vikings made a concerted effort to slow down Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb Sunday.

The Vikings split their safeties to cloud the Packers' wideouts, a move that limited Nelson and Cobb to a combined 12-126-0. "What we have done best is get the ball to Jordy and Randall," Rodgers said. "They have had big statistical seasons so they tried to take them out of the game." Of course, that allowed Eddie Lacy to run through soft boxes for 25-125-1. Nelson and Cobb will see more 1-on-1 coverage in Week 13, but it will be against Darrelle Revis and the Patriots.

Mike Evans has tied Mike Williams' franchise record with a receiving touchdown in four straight games.

The 6-foot-5 Evans beat 5-foot-11 Bears corner Kyle Fuller for his latest score, his eighth of the season and sixth in the last four weeks. With Josh McCown showing the utmost confidence in his rookie, Evans is bordering on WR1 status weekly now. He's also the top Dynasty wideout in perhaps the greatest rookie wideout class the NFL has ever seen.
Nov 24 - 10:15 AM

WRs coach Ricky Proehl said the Panthers have to "make sure we get" Kelvin Benjamin involved weekly.

Benjamin has been far from perfect this year, catching just 52-of-98 targets while battling some drops and poor routes. But the Panthers have wisely stuck with him through the mistakes and have been rewarded with eight touchdowns. "You’ve got to get him touches, because he gets going," Proehl said. "Just like any great receiver, when you feed him he gets into the game." Clearly a focal point of the offense, Benjamin is an every-week fantasy starter heading into a Week 13 game at Minnesota.

The Philadelphia Inquirer suggests the Eagles will have trouble covering Jason Witten in Thursday's game against the Cowboys.

Witten does not typically create mismatches at this point in his career. But the Eagles, already without DeMeco Ryans (Achilles), lost Emmanuel Acho (groin) Sunday. Now they'll have to ride with incompetent Casey Matthews as a primary inside linebacker, with rookie Marcus Smith mixing in. Smith is a pass-rusher that was drafted as an outside linebacker. Witten's upside is capped by his limited athletic ability, but he has TE1 appeal Thursday.
