Jonas Gray didn't play a single snap in the Patriots' Week 12 win over Detroit.
Shane Vereen played 62 downs, LeGarrette Blount played 17, and Brandon Bolden played two. Last week's four-TD superstar was nowhere to be found after reporting to the Patriots' facility late on Friday and missing practice. Gray could be doghoused for good. He is a replacement-level power back.
Jay Cutler completed 17-of-27 passes for 130 yards and one touchdown Week 12 against the Buccaneers.
Cutler and the Bears offense struggled mightily in the first half, but three Buccaneer turnovers in the third quarter allowed Chicago to put up 21 quick points. The Bears took the air out of the ball following the turnovers, and Cutler only attempted nine passes total in the second half. Cutler will be a borderline QB1 against the Lions on Thanksgiving day.
LeGarrette Blount rushed 12 times for 78 yards and two touchdowns in the Patriots' Week 12 win over the Lions.
The Pats primarily attacked Detroit's defense in spread looks, but did mix in some power-running plays. Blount -- not "tardy" Jonas Gray -- got the first opportunities to establish a hot hand, and he ran with them. Blount capitalized on an early second-quarter 81-yard kickoff return by Danny Amendola by powering in for a three-yard touchdown to give New England a 14-6 lead. He later scored from one yard out in what amounted to garbage time in the 34-9 romp. Blount wound up playing 17 snaps to Gray's zero. Blount is suddenly on the RB2 map entering a Week 13 date with the Packers.
Andrew Luck completed 21-of-32 passes for 253 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions in the Colts' Week 12 win over the Jaguars.
The Colts got off to a horrible start, as Luck was strip-sacked on two of the first three possessions, losing both fumbles. He took five sacks in total. Luck's streak of eight consecutive games with 300 yards passing was also snapped Sunday. His lone touchdown pass went to T.Y. Hilton from 73 yards out. Luck later missed a 77-yard score to Reggie Wayne, who was wide open down the left sideline. Luck should get back to elite levels at home against the Redskins in Week 13.
Making his 2014 debut, Josh Gordon caught 8-of-16 targets for 120 yards in Cleveland's Week 12 win over the Falcons.
Despite much pre-game speculation to the contrary, Gordon wasn't on any sort of a pitch count, playing essentially every down. He was targeted on a whopping 40 percent of the Browns' pass plays. His 16 looks were twice as many as No. 2 Miles Austin's eight. It was music to fantasy owners' ears, but Brian Hoyer often appeared to be forcing the ball to his returning No. 1 weapon, making a number of disastrous decisions on plays where they perhaps weren't on the same page. Hoyer also flat missed Gordon on at least 3-4 occasions. Gordon could have had a much-bigger game. Either way, he's established without a doubt that he'll be an elite WR1 down the stretch as the Browns try to clinch their first playoff berth since 2002.
Andy Dalton completed 24-of-35 passes for 233 yards, a touchdown, and an interception in the Bengals' Week 12 win over the Texans.
Managed and controlled by Cincinnati's high-volume run game (43 rushing attempts), Dalton continued to perform well in the caretaker role. His touchdown was good to Mohamed Sanu from six yards out in the first quarter. Dalton's big error was a third-quarter 60-yard pick six by Johnathan Joseph that briefly changed the tide of Sunday's game. It was Dalton's first turnover in a road game this season. The Bengals' offense rebounded and put the game away with their fourth-quarter rushing attack. A clear game manager this season, Dalton will be a two-quarterback-league option only in Week 13 against the Bucs.
Aaron Rodgers completed 19-of-29 passes for 209 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 12 win over the Vikings.
He added a season-high 34 yards on four carries. Rodgers was mostly held in check by the Vikings, but still managed to come away with two touchdowns. He couldn't get anything going downfield with Jordy Nelson despite targeting him 12 times. Rodgers has a difficult matchup against the Patriots secondary in Week 13, but will be a top-five option for a potential shootout. He now has a 31:3 TD-to-INT ratio through 11 games.
A.J. Green caught 12 balls for 121 yards in the Bengals' Week 12 win over the Texans.
The Texans did Green a favor by keeping top CB Johnathan Joseph away from his side, and letting Green go to work on second-year UDFA A.J. Bouye. Bouye got such a good whipping that DC Romeo Crennel benched him for Darryl Morris early in the second half. AJG went on to whip Morris repeatedly for first-down catches. Green now has four career games of double-digit receptions, and his dozen on Sunday were a single-game career high. With stat lines of 6-127-1 and 12-121 over his last two games, Green will be a top-shelf fantasy WR1 when the Bengals take on the Buccaneers next.
