Cecil Shorts caught one pass for six yards in the Jaguars' Week 12 loss to the Colts.
Shorts didn't see a target until deep into the second half. One of our favorite Week 12 value plays, Shorts couldn't get anything going with Blake Bortles crumbling in the pocket and refusing to take any shots downfield. Shorts will be a WR4 against Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and the Giants in Week 13.
Bobby Rainey caught 4-of-6 targets for 18 yards Week 12 against the Bears.
He added one rush for 3 yards. Rainey is clearly behind Doug Martin and Charles Sims in the running-game pecking order, but appeared to be the passing-down back for Tampa Bay. That role is unlikely to generate value outside of deep PPR leagues.
Riley Cooper caught three passes for 49 yards in Sunday's Week 12 win over the Titans.
Cooper was at least partially to blame for Mark Sanchez's first interception as he ran a terrible route, didn't cross the defender's face on a slant and quit on the play. The only reason he continues to log heavy snaps is because he's a good blocker. Cooper, with one touchdown and one game over 60 yards all season, should have been on waivers long ago in fantasy formats.
Danny Amendola was held catch-less in Week 12 against the Lions.
Shaking off an early drop, Amendola redeemed himself with an 81-yard kick return early in the second quarter. Amendola has barely been a factor in New England's passing offense this season, but has had his moments helping the team win.
Coby Fleener caught two passes for 28 yards in the Colts' Week 12 win over the Jaguars.
Fleener was targeted four times and could have easily had a touchdown had he not alligator-armed a ball in the end zone when he heard Jaguars' big-hitting SS Jonathan Cyprien's footsteps over the middle. Afriad of contact, Fleener is going to have these sorts of games. With Dwayne Allen (ankle) out, Fleener was also called on to block more. Fleener will be on the TE1 map again next week against the Redskins if Allen has to miss another game.
Charles Sims rushed six times for 22 yards Week 12 against the Bears.
Sims rotated series with Doug Martin through the first three quarters, but was out-touched 12-8 by Martin. Sims saw more success on the ground than Martin, but still struggled in the Bucs' limiting run scheme. Likely on the worse side of a RBBC, Sims will not be worth a start against the Bengals Week 13.
Julian Edelman secured 11-of-15 targets for 89 yards in the Patriots' Week 12 win over the Lions.
He also had a second-half punt return TD negated by penalty. Edelman dropped a first-quarter touchdown pass, but was otherwise a key ingredient as the Patriots attacked the Lions with a spread offense, getting the ball out of Tom Brady's hands quickly. Edelman will remain a borderline WR2 in PPR leagues against the Packers next week. He's a low-upside WR3 in non-PPR formats.
Allen Hurns caught one pass for 13 yards in the Jaguars' Week 12 loss to the Colts.
Hurns was targeted four times as he got the start opposite Cecil Shorts in place of Allen Robinson (foot, I.R.). The Jaguars' passing game is brutal outside of garbage time, leaving none of the receivers as more than WR4 plays. Hurns and the Jaguars get the Giants at home in Week 13.
