Terrance Williams caught two passes for 36 yards in Week 14 at Chicago.
Williams saw three targets. His 36 yards actually led the team on a night where Tony Romo passed for just 104 yards. Williams and Miles Austin are cancelling each other out, even though Williams is clearly more talented. Neither player can be trusted as a fantasy starter for the playoffs.
Alshon Jeffery caught five passes for 84 yards and one touchdown in Week 14 against the Cowboys.
Jeffery drew a team-high nine targets and seems to be Josh McCown's go-to guy. The touchdown is a catch you'll have to see to believe. Just before halftime, Jeffery beat B.W. Webb to the back, right corner of the end zone and vice-gripped a ball with his steel-trap mitts as he was falling to the ground for a 25-yard score. Jeffery could have easily had another touchdown earlier in the game, but he kind of quit on his route while McCown led him too far. Jeffery is producing like a WR1 in an offense where there are a ton of balls to go around. We'll conservatively have him ranked as a WR2 next week against the Browns.
Cole Beasley caught two passes for 20 yards and one touchdown in Week 14 against the Bears.
Beasley saw three targets on the night. Both of his catches were tough grabs. On an opening-drive third-and-three, Beasley reeled in a bullet of a pass over the middle for a first down. Then, late in the game he secured a nine-yard touchdown while leaping over the top of Major Wright in the back of the end zone. Beasley is the No. 4 receiver in Dallas and has no re-draft value.
Brandon Marshall caught six passes for 100 yards in Chicago's Week 14 win over the Cowboys on Monday night.
Marshall was targeted eight times on the night. Those two passes that weren't completed were end-zone targets. On a night where Josh McCown threw four touchdowns, it's a shame Marshall didn't secure one. Earl Bennett and Michael Bush scored two of them. Marshall worked the middle of the field with ease on deep ins and post patterns. He'll be on the WR1 map once again next week against the Browns. With Alshon Jeffery performing at an elite level, it's unclear which receiver Joe Haden will be tasked to shadow. Maybe he'll just play sides.
Dez Bryant caught two passes for 12 yards and one touchdown in Monday night's Week 14 loss to the Bears.
Bryant drew four targets on the night. The two misfires were overthrows by Tony Romo, as he missed high on both occasions. Bryant's score came from two yards out on the opening drive. He out-muscled Tim Jennings on a simple back-shoulder throw. Bryant hasn't topped 86 yards receiving since Week 7. We like him to obliterate the Packers at home next week, but he's had a number of favorable matchups in recent weeks. Still, consider Bryant a top-flight WR1.
Michael Bush rushed for 39 yards on eight carries and caught a 17-yard touchdown in Week 14 against the Cowboys.
Bush had his best game of the season tonight, and it surely will stay that way over the next few weeks. The Cowboys can't contain anyone on defense. Bush ran through gaping holes and caught a swing pass and walked in untouched for his score. Bush entered the night with 115 total yards on 46 touches through 11 games. He's not on the fantasy radar and is simply Matt Forte's change of pace.
Joseph Randle rushed for 54 yards and one touchdown on nine carries in Monday night's Week 14 loss to the Bears.
Randle handled running back duties on the final drive in the blowout loss and punched it in from one yard away with six seconds left on the clock. Anyone and everyone is running wild on the Bears this season. Randle remains a pure backup and change-of-pace to DeMarco Murray. He's off the re-draft radar.
Matt Forte rushed for 102 yards on 20 carries and caught seven passes for 73 yards and one touchdown in Monday night's Week 14 drubbing of the Cowboys.
Forte found a ton of space against Dallas' league-worst fantasy run defense. He also tied with Alshon Jeffery for the team lead in targets with nine. Forte had a ton of lengthy gains, but his biggest was a 34-yard catch-and-run up the right side on a play where the Cowboys defense seemed completely disinterested in tackling. Forte has now eclipsed 100 yards from scrimmage in seven of his last eight games and remains an elite RB1 play. He's touched the ball at least 21 times in six consecutive games. Forte has a tough matchup against the Browns on the road next week, but he's locked in as a top fantasy back.
