Christine Michael rushed nine times for 19 yards Week 13 against the Texans.
Michael opened up with a solid seven-yard run on his first action in the second quarter, and he converted a fourth-and-short later in the same drive. Michael was much quieter in the second half, gaining just one yard on four carries, but he seemed to jump James Starks in the pecking order. Both Starks and Michael look like inferior options to Ty Montgomery, however, and it is impossible to know how the workload will be split moving forward. Michael is not trustworthy enough to use against the Seahawks in the first round of the fantasy playoffs.
Julian Edelman caught 8-of-12 targets for 101 yards in the Patriots' Week 13 win over the Rams.
Rex Burkhead rushed eight times for 38 yards and caught 4-of-5 targets for 28 yards in the Bengals' Week 13 win over the Eagles.
Jeremy Hill out-carried Burkhead 23-8, but Burkhead was able to out-gain his backfield mate 38-33. In two games without Giovani Bernard, Burkhead has handled a total of 19 touches. However, he did lose a fumble on one catch over the middle. Burkhead should be heavily involved Week 14 at the Browns.
Marquess Wilson suffered a groin injury in Week 13 against the 49ers.
James White rushed three times for 17 yards and caught 4-of-5 targets for 18 yards in the Patriots' Week 13 win over the Rams.
Dion Lewis finished with nine touches, while White had seven behind backfield leader LeGarrette Blount (18). Lewis and White are rotating role players, essentially canceling each other out as reliable fantasy options. White will be a low-end PPR flex option in Week 14 against the Ravens.
Wendell Smallwood rushed eight times for 19 yards in the Eagles' Week 13 loss to the Bengals.
The Eagles' plans to feature Smallwood were again spoiled by falling in a quick hole on the scoreboard and being forced to fire off a bunch of pass plays. Carson Wentz threw it a season-high 60 times in the 18-point defeat. And Darren Sproles got the one-yard touchdown run late in the second half. Philly has lost 5-of-6 games, and it doesn't figure to get any easier next week against the Redskins. Smallwood is an extremely volatile RB3 play.
Dion Lewis rushed five times for 27 yards and caught 4-of-5 targets for 11 yards in the Patriots' Week 13 win over the Rams.
LeGarrette Blount (18) led New England's backfield in touches, while Lewis (9) and James White (7) continued to share passing-back duties. The Patriots used a lot of Lewis early in game, then put him on bubble wrap the rest of the way in an easy win. We'd project Lewis for 9-11 touches in Week 14 against Baltimore. Lewis will be a low-end flex option in that Monday night game.
Jared Cook caught 3-of-4 targets for 19 yards Week 13 against the Texans.
Cook came out of the gate hot, catching two quick passes including a third-down conversion on the first drive, but that was the extent of his contributions until the fourth quarter. Cook will have some big games in this offense, but he is impossible to trust week to week. He can be left on the wire.
