Several NFL executives who spent "extensive time" with Jets rookie Geno Smith before the draft believe Smith faces significant NFL roadblocks because he's "tuned out" and fails to realize he doesn't know everything.

"I'm not sure he knows how to take instruction because he pretty much wouldn't listen or talk to our coaches," said one exec. "... You can't tell him anything right now. He's tuned out because he thinks he's got it all down." Another NFL exec questioned Smith's leadership. "He doesn't have much presence, not much of a leader. I don't think he's a bad person, but that's not enough to be a quarterback in this league." Per Yahoo's Jason Cole, Smith spent "much of his time on his cell phone" during pre-draft visits. "All these other players were talking to coaches, trying to get to know people and he was over there by himself," one source said. "That's not what you want out of your quarterback."

Lions DE Ziggy Ansah said he thinks the ankle injury he suffered Week 2 will hamper him "all year."

Coming off 14.5 sacks last season, Ansah has zero takedowns in eight games this year. His ankle certainly has something to do with the decreased production. The sacks have not been there, but Ansah does have 10 hurries in the last five games according to PFF and almost had a strip sack on Thanksgiving. Those hurries should turn into takedowns eventually.

Michael Crabtree (ankle) is questionable for Week 13 against the Bills.

Crabtree was limited at all three practices this week. Coming off a 100-yard game in Week 12, Crabtree should be a solid WR2 for Sunday's home game against Buffalo.
Dec 2 - 4:36 PM

Latavius Murray (ankle) is questionable for Week 13 against the Bills.

Murray should be ready to roll against Buffalo after putting in a limited week of practice. Despite ranking only 23rd in the league in carries, Murray is tied for fourth with nine rushing touchdowns this season. He'll be in the RB2 mix this week.
Dec 2 - 4:32 PM

Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) is questionable for Week 13 against the Rams.

Bennett isn't 100 percent or probably anywhere close to it, but he'll give it a go this week with Rob Gronkowski (back) on the shelf. Even at less than full strength, Bennett should see enough targets to warrant TE1 consideration in a good matchup against the struggling Rams.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: After burning his DFS owners in recent weeks, this is a great spot to get a high-upside option at a low ownership percentage. Our projected ownership page has him at 3% in GPPs, and with Gronk out for awhile, Bennett should be at least 5-8 times as popular. He's been a disappointment in the last two games, but should see an uptick in targets in Week 13. Los Angeles has allowed the 10th most TDs per game to TEs on the year. The TE spot isn't that deep this week, especially on the high end, so saving cap here is recommended.
Dec 2 - 4:24 PM

Julian Edelman (foot) is questionable for Week 13 against the Rams.

Edelman has been a limited participant at practice the last two days. He'll be good to go on Sunday and should see a monster workload with Rob Gronkowski recovering from back surgery. Edelman has put himself back in the WR1 conversation.
Dec 2 - 4:20 PM

Tom Brady (knee) is questionable for Week 13 against the Rams.

Brady sat out Wednesday's session but practiced on a limited basis on Thursday and Friday. He's in no danger of missing Week 13. Even without Rob Gronkowski (back) Brady will be an elite QB1 against a Rams team that gave up 49 points to the Saints last week.
Dec 2 - 4:14 PM

Marvin Jones (thigh) is listed as questionable for Week 13 against the Saints.

Beat writers didn't notice Jones doing much during the practice week, while the Detroit Free Press wrote Friday that Jones is a "significant" question mark to play against New Orleans. Specifically, beat writer Dave Birkett tweeted Friday that he thinks Jones will play, but "no" in response to a question asking whether Jones is 100 percent. Jones has failed to produce since the first few weeks of the season. He's a low-floor WR3 option despite the plus matchup.
Dec 2 - 4:13 PM

Andrew Luck (concussion, shoulder) was a full participant at Friday's practice.

That's an upgrade from Thursday when he was limited. Luck missed Week 12 with a concussion but should be all systems go for Monday night. He'll offer QB1 appeal in a glorious matchup against the Jets' struggling secondary.
Dec 2 - 4:11 PM

Seahawks DE Michael Bennett (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Panthers.

Seahawks FS Earl Thomas was removed from the injury report, so he'll will start against Carolina. Bennett's status is less certain, but most signs point to him playing as well. Seahawks RCB Deshawn Shead is also off the injury report after missing Week 12. Whereas the Panthers' defense is in disarray, the Seahawks' defense is nearing full strength for the stretch run.
Dec 2 - 4:11 PM

T.Y. Hilton (back) returned to a full practice on Friday.

That puts him on track to play Monday night against the Jets. Hilton will be an obvious WR1 against New York's overmatched secondary.
Dec 2 - 4:06 PM

The Panthers ruled out SS Kurt Coleman (concussion) and MLB Luke Kuechly (concussion) for Week 13 against the Seahawks.

Jimmy Graham and Doug Baldwin should go to work against a Carolina defense that is severely weakened up the middle. Coleman hasn't had a great year, but he is the Panthers' top playmaker in the secondary. Kuechly is the heart and soul of Carolina's defense. The Panthers will also be without DE Mario Addison (foot) against Seattle. Addison leads the team with nine sacks.
