Eli Manning completed 13-of-27 passes for 113 yards and one interception Thursday in the Giants’ Week 12 loss to the Redskins.

Eli took four sacks for a loss of 27 yards. Manning was doomed from the start playing without Sterling Shepard (migraines) and never got on the same page with Evan Engram (three catches for 18 yards on seven targets). He only made it to the red zone once and ended the game by throwing a pitiful interception into double coverage. Even with all his weapons, Manning is hit-or-miss. Without them, he can barely function. Manning gets a glorious matchup against Oakland in Week 13, though his streaming appeal hinges greatly on Shepard's availability.

Kirk Cousins completed 19-of-31 passes for 242 yards with two touchdowns and one interception while adding four yards on three carries Thursday in the Redskins’ Week 12 win over the Giants.

He was also sacked six times for a loss of 41 yards. Cousins didn’t have his best stuff on Thursday night, which was understandable given the short week. It didn’t help that the Redskins were playing without pass-catching back Chris Thompson and star tight end Jordan Reed. Cousins made lemonade out of lemons, showing a strong connection with Jamison Crowder (7-141-1) while also finding Josh Doctson for the go-ahead touchdown with under four minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. Cousins’ interception—which Janoris Jenkins returned for a 52-yard touchdown—wasn’t his fault as the ball deflected off Byron Marshall. The main complaint was that Cousins held onto the ball too long, which is something he’ll need to iron out for next week’s game at Dallas.

Samaje Perine compiled 100 yards on 24 carries while contributing three catches for 30 yards on four targets Thursday in the Redskins’ Week 12 win over the Giants.

It was a tale of two halves for Perine, who was positively dreadful before the break (three yards on five carries) but excellent after halftime. Perine also helped out in the passing game, though he did commit an ugly drop early in the first quarter. The rookie has now reached 100 yards rushing in back-to-back games and has looked surprisingly good doing it. He’ll be safe to roll out as an RB2 next week at Dallas.

Josh Doctson nabbed two-of-four targets for 28 yards and a touchdown Thursday in the Redskins’ Week 12 win over the Giants.

Doctson salvaged the night for his fantasy owners by hauling in a 14-yard touchdown strike from Kirk Cousins with 3:39 remaining in the fourth quarter. It was an impressive catch against tight coverage from Janoris Jenkins. Doctson made a mental mistake on his first catch, running out of bounds instead of extending for what should have been an easy first down. He also drew a pass interference flag that moved the Redskins up 37 yards late in the first half. The 2016 first-rounder gets another favorable draw next week against the Cowboys. Still, he’s just a boom-or-bust WR3/4.

Jamison Crowder pulled in seven-of-10 targets for 141 yards and a touchdown Thursday in the Redskins’ Week 12 win over the Giants.

Crowder was an absolute powerhouse on Thursday and a badly needed source of offense for a team running on fumes. Both teams looked lethargic playing on a short week but Crowder was sharp as ever, putting the Redskins on his back with four catches for 90 yards after halftime. Crowder’s 15-yard touchdown in the third quarter was his first since Week 13 of last season while his 141 yards represented a new career-high. He hurt his knee in the fourth quarter but only missed a few snaps. Now firmly entrenched as Kirk Cousins’ go-to target, Crowder will be in the WR2 mix next Thursday night at Dallas.

Vernon Davis failed to absorb his lone target Thursday in the Redskins’ Week 12 win over the Giants.

Davis entered Week 12 as the Redskins’ lead receiver but was nowhere to be found on Thursday night. The sweet potato yams connoisseur was invisible versus the Giants, drawing a mere one target compared to five for Niles Paul. New York has been among the worst teams in the league at defending tight ends, making Davis’ goose egg all the more puzzling. Davis has played well for the most part this year, but hasn’t scored a touchdown since Week 3. He’ll look to bounce back next Thursday at Dallas.

Cole Beasley caught 2-of-3 targets for 19 yards in the Cowboys' Week 12 loss to the Chargers.

This is the norm for Beasley now, which obviously makes him irrelevant in fantasy.
Nov 23 - 7:44 PM

Travis Benjamin caught 3-of-3 targets for 50 yards in the Chargers' Week 12 Thanksgiving win over Dallas.

Benjamin ripped a 46-yard gain early on, then was quiet the rest of the way. He did see an uptick in usage when Mike Williams left with a first-quarter knee injury. Either way, Benjamin isn't a big enough part of the Chargers' offense for legitimate fantasy viability. He does get a plus matchup in a "revenge" game against the Browns next on the docket, for whatever that's worth.
