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

Nov 23 - 7:35 PM

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.
Nov 23 - 7:33 PM

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.
Nov 23 - 7:32 PM

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.
Nov 23 - 7:29 PM

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.
Nov 23 - 7:28 PM

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.
Nov 23 - 7:27 PM

Philip Rivers completed 27-of-33 passes for 434 yards and three touchdowns in the Chargers' Week 12 Thanksgiving win over the Cowboys.

Dak Prescott will undeservedly bear the brunt of blame for Dallas' slump, but Rod Marinelli's defense has been just as much of a liability. They could not cover Keenan Allen all night and hemorrhaged big plays to Hunter Henry and Tyrell Williams. Rivers simply didn't miss, picking apart Dallas even as his field goal kicker got hurt and cost the team points. Rivers draws another favorable matchup in Week 13 against the Browns.
Nov 23 - 7:26 PM

Sterling Shepard (migraines) is inactive for Week 12 against the Redskins.

He traveled with the team but the migraines remained too much to overcome. Travis Rudolph will man the slot with Tavarres King and Roger Lewis outside. Also inactive for the Giants are CB Eli Apple, RT Justin Pugh, OG D.J. Fluker, QB Davis Webb, MLB B.J. Goodson, and LB Calvin Munson.
