David Johnson rushed eight times for 21 yards and a touchdown and caught 2-of-4 targets for eight yards Week 12 against the 49ers.
Johnson capped off a nine-play, goal-line sequence with a touchdown in the third quarter and took over lead back duties after Chris Johnson (knee) and Andre Ellington (foot) both exited with injuries. Johnson did not find any success against a 49ers defense which always plays better at home, but he could be in line for a start next week against the Rams if Ellington and Chris Johnson are forced to sit. He will be one of the better pickups this week.
CB Marcus Burley left the Seahawks' Week 12 game against the Steelers with an ankle injury and is doubtful to return.
Players have been dropping like flies in this game. Burley recorded two tackles before exiting. Jeremy Lane is filling in at nickel back.
Carson Palmer completed 24-of-40 passes for 271 yards and rushed for a seven-yard score in the Cardinals' Week 12 win over the 49ers.
The final stat line looks okay, but Palmer did not play particularly well. He made several questionable decisions and should have been picked off at least twice. He also settled for short passes too often and struggled to connect on deep shots. Palmer was not helped by the lack of a running game, and he found himself under pressure more often than usual. Despite the "bad" game, Palmer led the offense on a 14-play, 85-yard drive he capped off with a seven-yard touchdown run to win the game. Palmer was not sharp against San Francisco, but he has established himself as an every-week QB1.
Jimmy Graham was carted off with what appeared to be a right knee injury in the Seahawks' Week 12 game against the Steelers.
Graham came down awkwardly while trying to catch a touchdown pass from Russell Wilson during the fourth quarter. Antwon Blake was covering him on the play. Graham left the field with an air cast on his leg and is headed for X-rays. He'll finish the day with four catches for 75 yards on eight targets. Luke Willson is in at tight end.
Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) is active for Week 12 against the Patriots.
Sanders was listed as probable, so his status was never in doubt. He's more of a WR3 this week. The Broncos inactives are QB Peyton Manning, OLB DeMarcus Ware, QB Christian Ponder, KR Jordan Norwood, CB Lorenzo Doss, TE Richard Gordon, and RG Sam Brenner.
Patriots WR Keshawn Martin (hamstring) is active for Week 12 against the Broncos.
Martin will return after missing the last five games. With Danny Amendola sidelined, he'll start opposite Brandon LaFell. Martin isn't more than a WR4 against the Broncos secondary. The Patriots inactives are WR Julian Edelman, DL Trey Flowers, LB Jamie Collins, CB Justin Coleman, S Jordan Richards, and TE Michael Williams.
Heath Miller exited the Steelers' Week 12 game against the Seahawks with a rib injury and will not return.
Miller suffered the injury early in the game and must have aggravated it in the third quarter. Miller caught five of six targets for 45 yards before leaving. Jesse James is in at tight end.
DL Demarcus Dobbs left the Seahawks' Week 12 game against the Steelers with a concussion and will not return.
Dobbs entered the day having played just 81 snaps this year, so the Seahawks should be okay without him. He didn't record any tackles on Sunday.
