A.J. Green caught six passes for 91 yards with a touchdown in the Bengals' 28-6 Week 11 win over the Chiefs.

Green continues to be the most unstoppable wideout this side of Calvin Johnson. The Chiefs did not shadow him with Brandon Flowers and they paid the price early, when he beat Javier Arenas for a ridiculous catch on a goal-line fade. From there, Green got open at will with double moves and went over 85 yards for the third straight game. He now has a touchdown in nine consecutive games and is averaging 91.1 yards per day. Green has a great chance to stretch that scoring streak against the Raiders next week.

Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) and Jacoby Brissett (thumb) both were at practice Thursday.

Both were limited on Wednesday. It was just a walkthrough, but it is looking more and more likely Garoppolo will play Sunday. He will be a solid streaming option at home against the Bills.

Lions OC Jim Bob Cooter said Golden Tate will see more targets moving forward.

Targets are not really the problem for Tate, who is on pace for 117 through three games. The problem is he is averaging just 7.2 yards per reception a season after gaining just nine yards per catch. Tate has the after-catch skills to break a couple big plays, but his usage limits his yardage upside. Marvin Jones will remain the clear No. 1 in Detroit.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Dez Bryant (knee) will not practice Thursday.

It is not surprising. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport has said Bryant is a "long-shot" to play against the 49ers, and he could be looking at a multi-week absence. Cole Beasley and Brice Butler are interesting names in deep leagues.

Sammy Watkins (foot) is not practicing Thursday.

Watkins was expected to test out his foot either Wednesday or today, so his absence is not a great sign. It is possible he returns to the practice field Friday, but his Week 4 chances are not looking good.

Eric Decker (shoulder) did not practice Thursday.

Decker was on the field, but he did not even stretch with the team. His absence is not surprising considering he was headed for an MRI after missing Wednesday's session. It is extremely unlikely he suits up this week. Quincy Enunwa should see a big bump in targets with Decker sidelined, and he is available in a ton of leagues.

Jets coach Todd Bowles said the team will "make sure" Brandon Marshall gets the ball.

"I’m sure (defenses are) paying attention to him; they were paying attention to him last year," Bowles said. "We just have to find better ways to get him the ball." Marshall does have 27 targets through three games, but he has caught just 12 of those for 160 yards and, most concerningly, zero touchdowns. Marshall places the blame on the offense "trying to be scientists" instead of just playing. With Eric Decker looking likely to miss some time with a shoulder injury, Marshall will have to be more effective moving forward.

Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said the team has "thrown too much" in the last two games.

Jameis Winston has thrown 110 times total in the last two games after attempting more than 40 passes just three times as a rookie. "For our team to be successful," Koetter said, "we can't be throwing in the 50s and we can't be running in the 20s." Game scripts and the injury to Doug Martin have certainly played a role in the pass-heavy approach, but Koetter knows he needs to reel it in. After the Bengals had success running at the Broncos last week, the Bucs could try a similar gameplan on Sunday.

Jaguars OC Greg Olson vowed to "get this run game fixed."

Running backs have averaged just 2.24 yards per carry for the Jaguars this season, and it did not get any better in Chris Ivory's return last week. The running game has a theoretical "get-right game" against the Colts on Sunday, but Indy played much better against the run last week and are starting to get healthy. With the offensive line in shambles, the Jaguars will struggle to run the ball all season.

DetroitLions.com's Tim Twentyman expects Dwayne Washington to see "an uptick in carries" against the Bears.

Twentyman said Theo Riddick will still be involved, but the smart money is on Washington beginning to monopolize the early-down work. He was much more effective on the same number of carries last week and is a better fit for Ameer Abdullah's old role. Against a Bears front which has been decimated by injuries, Washington is a FLEX play with the upside for a lot more.

Cowboys WR Brice Butler said he is "more confident" in the offense this season.

The Cowboys traded for Butler after Dez Bryant broke his foot in the season opener last year. Butler did not do much while Bryant was out the first time, but he did manage eight catches for 134 yards over the final two weeks of the season. With Bryant likely to miss time again with a hairline fracture in his knee, Butler should get his chance in the starting lineup. He is an interesting sleeper against the 49ers.

Cam Newton said Kelvin Benjamin will not be held catch-less again after seeing just one fruitless target Week 3.

"That can’t happen. That can’t happen," Newton said. "And if I’m speaking for it, that won’t happen again. He’s too good of a player." OC Mike Shula has blamed himself for Benjamin's goose-egg and said the team has to "find a way to get him the ball more." With both the coordinator and quarterback set on getting him targets, Benjamin should see plenty of passes thrown his way against the Falcons.
