Redskins SS Brandon Meriweather agreed to slice his base salary from $2.45 million to $1.2 million.

It's believed to be a legit pay cut because Meriweather did not get the difference back in a signing bonus. Meriweather had little leverage after appearing in just one game last year before tearing his right ACL in mid-November. Now 29 years old, it's been several seasons since Meriweather was an effective safety.

Coach Rex Ryan said Friday he "anticipates" Geno Smith starting at quarterback for the Jets' final five games.

Asked whose decision it was to start Geno, Rex replied, "It's a Jets decision." It was obviously Jets GM John Idzik's decision, as he wants to get more evaluation time on Geno after drafting him in last year's second round. Per beat reporter Manish Mehta, Ryan, OC Marty Mornhinweg, and QBs coach David Lee all believe Michael Vick would give New York a better chance to win.

Jordan Cameron (concussion) is listed as questionable for Week 13 at Buffalo.

Cameron was limited in practice all week. He may have to clear one more hurdle in the NFL's concussion protocol to receive clearance to face Buffalo. If Cameron does play, we wouldn't expect there to be any limitations on his snap count after he missed the previous three games. Despite a disappointing 2014 season, Cameron will reemerge as a fantasy TE1 when he gets the green light.

John Middlekauff of 957 The Game Bay Area reports Latavius Murray (concussion) is "not likely" to play in Week 13 against the Rams.

There was early-week optimism on Murray based on the fact that his concussion happened two Thursday nights ago, but he still hasn't been cleared to play in football games. It's obviously a disappointing development after Murray ran wild on the Chiefs on just four carries in Week 12. The Raiders will turn to an RBBC of Darren McFadden, Marcel Reece, and Maurice Jones-Drew at St. Louis.

Dwayne Allen (ankle) remained sidelined at Friday's practice and has been ruled out for Week 13.

Coby Fleener will play the vast majority of the snaps against Washington, with Jack Doyle serving as the blocking tight end. Despite last week's clunker, Fleener is squarely in the mix as an upside TE1. Allen has now missed two games. It's worth wondering if he indeed has a high ankle sprain.

Jerick McKinnon (back) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

McKinnon hasn't practiced at all this week. As a rookie who doesn't practice during the week, we'd say he's probably on the wrong side of questionable-to-doubtful for Week 13 against the Panthers. If McKinnon can't go, the Vikings will throw something together with Matt Asiata, Joe Banyard, and Ben Tate.

Roddy White (ankle) is questionable for Week 13 against the Cardinals.

White played his normal complement of snaps last week but hasn't practiced at all this week. On Friday, he was on the field without his helmet and limited to stretching and individual drills. White was already set for a tough matchup against Patrick Peterson and Antonio Cromartie. He's more of a WR3 than WR2.

Larry Fitzgerald (knee) said he's "highly likely" to play Week 13 against the Falcons.

Fitzgerald sat out the Week 12 loss to the Seahawks and has yet to practice this week on his sprained MCL, typically a 2-4 week injury. He worked out on the side at Thursday's practice, and said he was "optimistic" about his chances of suiting up Sunday. We'd like to see him practice Friday.

Colin Kaepernick completed 16-of-29 passes for 121 yards and two interceptions in the 49ers' Thanksgiving night loss to the Seahawks.

The numbers were actually worse than that, as Kaepernick had just 90 yards passing before a meaningless final drive. It was a dreadful performance for Kaepernick. He was too quick to abandon the pocket and missed badly on several throws. The worst throw of the night was Kaepernick's first interception, which instead of hitting an open Brandon Lloyd on the back shoulder Kaepernick threw up the field into the waiting arms of Richard Sherman. Kaepernick has not scored multiple touchdowns in a game since Week 6 and has not surpassed 15 fantasy points in any game over that span. He will not be a viable QB1 even in a good matchup Week 14 against the Raiders.

LeSean McCoy had 25 carries for 159 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's Week 13 win over the Cowboys.

He wasn't targeted in the pass game, and also lost a fumble. The Eagles rested McCoy in the fourth quarter, giving Chris Polk 11 carries in mop-up duty. He was able to pick up big gains against a Cowboys defense that was playing without MLB Rolando McClain for most of the first half. McCoy took an inside draw 38 yards for his touchdown. He's now rushed for 100 yards in back-to-back games and is on pace for a 323/1,357/5 line this season. McCoy will remain a locked-in RB1 despite a matchup with Seattle in Week 14.
Nov 27 - 8:29 PM

Joique Bell rushed 23 times for 91 yards and two touchdowns in the Lions' Week 13 win over the Bears, adding two catches for an additional 16 yards.

The rushing yards were Bell's most of the season, while the two-TD effort was his first of 2014. Bell continued to look slippery, getting around the edge and fitting through tight spaces for extra yards. His play has come on at the right time for Detroit. Bell will remain the RB2 conversation for the fantasy playoffs, as the Lions have an unusually soft schedule.
Nov 27 - 4:07 PM

Alshon Jeffery caught 9-of-13 targets for 71 yards and two touchdowns in Chicago's Week 13 loss to the Lions.

Jeffery was a rare bright spot for the non-competitive Bears, often running free over the middle of the field. Both of his scores came in the first quarter, but a dinking and dunking Bears team couldn't drive the ball for the game's final 45 minutes. Now up to 67/854/7 on the season, Jeffery is on pace for 89/1,139/9. The seven scores are already as many as Jeffery had in 2013.
