Martellus Bennett caught 4-of-7 targets for 37 yards Week 12 against the Bucs.
Bennett was quiet along with the rest of the Bears passing game. He went up high for a 26-yard grab on Chicago's opening drive of the third quarter, but he was held in check the rest of the day despite seeing a team-high seven targets. Bennett will remain a borderline TE1 against the Lions on Thanksgiving day.
Calvin Johnson secured 4-of-10 targets for 58 yards in the Lions' Week 12 loss to New England.
Megatron primarily squared off with Brandon Browner, while Darrelle Revis handled Golden Tate. Johnson's cause wasn't helped by Matthew Stafford's erratic accuracy, but Megatron contributed to Detroit's offensive disarray with a pair of drops. Expect Johnson to bounce back down the stretch, as the Lions have a string of cupcake matchups in their final four games of the fantasy season. They'll square off with the Bears on Thanksgiving next.
Boom Herron rushed 12 times for 65 yards in the Colts' Week 12 win over the Jaguars, adding five catches for 31 yards.
Golden Tate secured 4-of-10 targets for 97 yards in the Lions' Week 12 loss to New England.
The Patriots primarily used Darrelle Revis to guard Tate, just as they did last week with Reggie Wayne. Tate still turned an early bubble screen into a 24-yard gain and followed up with 17 yards on a rub route. Late in the first quarter, Tate exploited a mixup in New England's zone for a 42-yard gain. Unfortunately, Tate had just one catch the rest of the game. Since Megatron returned, Tate has morphed from a WR1 into a WR2/3 option. The Lions face the Bears next on Thanksgiving.
Matt Forte rushed 23 times for 89 yards and two touchdowns Week 12 against the Buccaneers.
He added five catches for 23 yards. Forte struggled with the rest of the Bears' offense in the first half, but he had a silky smooth 13-yard touchdown run following a Josh McCown fumble in the third quarter. He added a one-yard scoring plunge later in the third. With five more catches today, Forte is on pace for 105 catches this season.
Shane Vereen rushed eight times for 12 yards and caught eight passes for 48 yards in the Patriots' Week 12 win over Detroit.
The Patriots played spread offense one week after gashing Indianapolis with a power running game. Vereen was the primary back, playing 62 snaps to LeGarrette Blount's 17. Jonas Gray didn't even play a down. Blount is getting goal-line carries now in New England's offense, which curbs Vereen's fantasy upside. Vereen is still highly active in the passing game, solidifying his PPR stock. Vereen will be an RB2/flex option in Week 13 at Green Bay.
Denard Robinson rushed 14 times for 25 yards in the Jaguars' Week 12 loss to the Colts.
He added four catches for 47 yards to save his fantasy day. But after Jonas Gray ripped the Colts for 201 yards and four touchdowns in Week 11, it was quite the disappointment from Shoelace. He received one carry from the one-yard line but took a two-yard loss on the play. The Jaguars return home next weekend to face the Giants' league-worst run defense. Robinson will be a solid RB2.
Mark Sanchez completed 30-of-43 passes for 307 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in Sunday's Week 12 win over the Titans.
