Tyrell Williams caught 2-of-3 targets for 58 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers' Week 12 Thanksgiving win over the Cowboys.

The touchdown -- from 27 yards out in Cowboys CB Anthony Brown's coverage -- was just Williams' second this season. Williams saw more usage when Mike Williams (knee) left Thursday night's game with a first-quarter knee injury and did not return. Tyrell has played a lot of snaps all year, but the Chargers don't call plays designed to specifically get him the ball. Perhaps that will change some if Mike is out for an extended period.

Hunter Henry caught 5-of-5 targets for 76 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers' Week 12 Thanksgiving win over the Cowboys.

Per beat reporter Jack Wang's calculations, the Chargers are now 5-1 in games where Henry draws at least five targets and 0-5 when he doesn't. Los Angeles' coaching staff decisions with regard to Henry's usage have been egregious all year, but the sophomore tight end has remained one of the NFL's most-efficient pass catchers. Henry will continue to be a boom-bust TE1 option, even in a plum Week 13 draw against the Browns.

Alfred Morris rushed nine times for 36 yards in the Cowboys' Week 12 loss to the Chargers.

He wasn't targeted in the passing game. Rod Smith also saw nine carries and added two receptions in this backfield timeshare. Morris had a solid Week 11 against the Eagles but took a step back in this one. He gets a #RevengeGame next Thursday night against the Redskins as a TD-dependent RB2/3.

Austin Ekeler rushed six times for 15 yards and caught 3-of-3 targets for 55 yards in the Chargers' Week 12 Thanksgiving win over Dallas.

The undrafted rookie was Los Angeles' backfield sparkplug in this one as Melvin Gordon struggled mightily on the ground (21/65/0). Unfortunately, Ekeler still hasn't cut more into Gordon's workload and is only being used as a change-of-pace back. He will be a low-end flex option in Week 13 against Cleveland.

Rod Smith rushed nine times for 41 yards and one touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 12 loss to the Chargers on Thanksgiving.

He and Alfred Morris each carried the ball nine times, with Smith getting the short touchdown in the fourth quarter. It was Dallas' first touchdown since early Week 10. Smith also added two catches for seven yards. The Cowboys were playing from behind all day, so the running game obviously wasn't a big part of the game plan much of the afternoon. Smith is a low-upside RB4.

Melvin Gordon rushed 21 times for 65 yards and caught 3-of-3 targets for 23 yards in the Chargers' Week 12 Thanksgiving win over Dallas.

Gordon finished with ample volume to make him a top-25 fantasy running back on the week, but he was a liability all night against a Sean Lee-less Cowboys defense he should have shredded. Gordon doesn't make guys miss and is incapable of turning nothing runs into something. He lost nine more touches to Austin Ekeler, whose big-play ability is superior to Gordon's. With all of that said, Gordon is an elite RB1 play each week simply because he gets the ball often and plays in a productive offense.

Redskins declared OT Trent Williams, DL Terrell McClain, S Montae Nicholson, TE Jordan Reed, DL Caraun Reid, C Chase Roullier and LB Martrell Spaight inactive for Week 12 against the Giants.

Williams has been battling a right knee injury all season and couldn't get the green light playing on a short week. Ryan Anderson (knee), Zach Brown (Achilles), Ryan Grant (calf), Matt Ioannidis (hand, thigh), Anthony Lanier (knee), Morgan Moses (ankle, eye), Ty Nsekhe (core), Samaje Perine (finger) and Brandon Scherff (knee) are all active for Thursday night's Thanksgiving nightcap at Fed Ex Field.

Dak Prescott completed 20-of-27 passes for 179 yards, no touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Cowboys' 28-6, Week 12 loss to the Chargers on Thanksgiving.

Prescott has been held under 180 yards passing in all three games without Ezekiel Elliott this month. Rod Smith's late-game touchdown run was the Cowboys' first visit to the end zone since early Week 10. Prescott did have a long touchdown run, but it was wiped out on a blatant hold by LT Tyron Smith, and he threw a 90-yard pick-six to Desmond King in the fourth quarter on a play he didn't see a wide-open Jason Witten in the end zone. Prescott, even in a prime spot, will be hard to trust as a fantasy play next Thursday night against the Redskins.
