The Sacramento Bee considers 49ers second-round pick Tank Carradine a defensive end rather than outside linebacker.

We've also seen CSN Bay Area list Carradine at end rather than rush 'backer. On the Sac Bee's post-OTAs depth chart, Carradine is listed as the third-team right end behind Justin Smith and Demarcus Dobbs. Carradine didn't participate in any spring drills while recovering from the November tear of his right ACL.

Carson Palmer completed 30-of-46 passes for 300 yards and three touchdowns in the Cardinals' Week 13 win over the Redskins.

Palmer had a quiet first half, throwing for 135 scoreless yards, but he did hook up with Larry Fitzgerald and David Johnson a couple times on a successful two-minute drill before the break. He was still under routine pressure after halftime, but he managed to capitalize on a Kirk Cousins fumble with a tight-window laser to Michael Floyd from six yards out to help get the scoring going. That was not the end of the fireworks, either. Palmer hooked up with David Johnson on a 25-yard score to give the Cardinals the lead for good, and he found J.J. Nelson on a 42-yard bomb which put the game away. Palmer now has multiple touchdowns in four of his last five games, and he has topped 300 yards in three of those contests. He will be in the QB1 conversation next week against Miami.

Doug Martin rushed 17 times for 45 yards and a touchdown and caught his lone target for a gain of 23 in the Bucs' Week 13 upset of San Diego.

Martin turned in a useful fantasy line thanks to a two-yard touchdown plunge, but he lost a ton of late-game playing time to Jacquizz Rodgers, who returned from a foot injury on Sunday. Martin did not play on the Bucs' final three drives. It's possible the Bucs were just managing Martin's reps following his return from a severe hamstring injury. It's also possible Martin suffered an injury of some sort. One beat writer suggested the Bucs simply prefer Rodgers as a late-game clock killer. Either way, it's a situation to monitor ahead of a Week 14 date with the visiting Saints.
Dec 4 - 7:47 PM

Cameron Brate caught 6-of-9 targets for 86 yards and a touchdown in the Bucs' Week 13 win over the Chargers.

As Chargers top CB Casey Hayward put clamps on Mike Evans (3-38-0), Brate stepped up as Jameis Winston's go-to receiver. Brate isn't a great athlete and doesn't do anything flashy, and has struggled to maintain a full-time role due to blocking deficiencies. But he is an adept possession target and one of Winston's favorite options in the red zone. Brate will be a low-end TE1 when the Bucs host the Saints in Week 14.
Dec 4 - 7:44 PM

David Johnson rushed 18 times for 84 yards and a touchdown while catching 9-of-12 targets for 91 yards and another score in the Cardinals' Week 13 win over the Redskins.

There is not much left to say about David Johnson. A dominant force both on the ground and through the air, Johnson put the offense on his back against Washington. He opened the scoring with a short touchdown after a strong opening drive, consistently moved the chains with big catches in the passing game, and scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 25-yard catch in the fourth quarter. He also converted a late fourth down with a big run. The fact these games have become almost expected speaks to how spectacular Johnson has been all season. He is the overall RB1 every week.
Dec 4 - 7:44 PM

Melvin Gordon rushed 17 times for 84 yards and a touchdown and caught 4-of-6 targets for 54 yards in the Chargers' Week 13 loss to Tampa Bay.

Gordon was easily the Chargers' most effective player in this one, gashing the Bucs for chunk-yardage runs and leading San Diego in receiving. Gordon has been a machine in fantasy as an all-purpose workhorse, and his efficiency has improved considerably over the course of the year. Gordon will be a low-end RB1 play when the Chargers face Carolina's run-tough defense in Week 14.
Dec 4 - 7:35 PM

LeSean McCoy rushed 17 times for 130 yards in the Bills' 38-24, Week 13 loss to the Raiders.

McCoy wasn't just a threat on the ground; he also led the Bills with seven catches for 61 yards on seven targets. With Robert Woods, Charles Clay, and Percy Harvin all missing this one, McCoy had to take on a bigger pass-game role behind a less-than-100-percent Sammy Watkins and Marquise Goodwin. McCoy's fantasy owners surely would have preferred he score at least one of the two touchdowns backup Mike Gillislee scored one and two yards out. McCoy was still able to get "his" and again opened the third quarter with a monster 54-yard run after coming out of halftime with a 75-yard touchdown run last week. McCoy will be an elite RB1 next week against the Steelers.
Dec 4 - 7:34 PM

Mike Evans caught 3-of-6 targets for 38 yards in the Bucs' Week 13 win over the Chargers.

He did tack on a two-point conversion catch after a Cameron Brate touchdown, but Evans was shut down by Chargers CB Casey Hayward in this game. Hayward added an interception and drew an offensive pass interference flag on Evans on an end-zone target. Evans is headed for a likely bounce back in Week 14 against the Saints, but Hayward got the individual matchup win and the Bucs got the real-life victory in Sunday's 28-21 upset.
Dec 4 - 7:31 PM

Latavius Murray rushed 20 times for 82 yards and two touchdowns in the Raiders' 38-24, Week 13 win over the Bills.

He also added three catches for 23 yards on five targets. Both of Murray's scores were of the shirt-yardage variety, with the first one coming from a yard out and the second from three yards away. He now has 11 touchdowns on the year for the top team in the AFC. With DeAndre Washington phased out of the offense in recent weeks, Murray has also been taking on a bigger pass-game role. Murray has settled in as a high-floor RB1/2 ahead of Thursday night against the Chiefs.
Dec 4 - 7:30 PM

Paxton Lynch completed 12-of-24 passes for 104 yards in the Broncos' Week 13 win over Jacksonville.

He rushed twice for 11 yards. The good news is Lynch avoided turnovers and took only two sacks after taking six in his Week 5 spot start against the Falcons. The bad news is Lynch struggled mightily for the second straight start and is a clear downgrade from Trevor Siemian, who was inactive Sunday with a foot sprain. In order to beat better teams than the Jaguars, the Broncos are going to need Siemian back. Denver heads to Tennessee for Week 14.
Dec 4 - 5:08 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 29-of-40 passes for 226 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions and rushed for no gain Sunday in the Dolphins' Week 13 loss to the Ravens.

He was sacked twice for a loss of 11 yards. This was a meltdown of the highest degree. Tannehill straight up stunk on Sunday and seemed to get worse as the game went on. He showed almost no awareness, repeatedly throwing into tight coverage with disastrous results. The three interceptions were as many as he had thrown in his previous seven games combined. Even with a healthy offensive line to protect him—something he hasn’t had in recent weeks—Tannehill could only complete short passes and consistently made the wrong decision. It was a huge step back for the Dolphins’ fifth-year signal caller. Tannehill has another tough game coming up against Cardinals in Week 14, though at least that’ll be a home game.
Dec 4 - 4:54 PM

Joe Flacco completed 36-of-47 passes for 381 yards with four touchdowns and one interception Sunday in the Ravens' Week 13 win over the Dolphins.

Flacco was surgical on Sunday. He got off to a magnificent start by completing six-of-seven passes to six different receivers on the Ravens’ opening drive. Flacco had his most success throwing to Dennis Pitta, who shredded the Falcons for 90 yards and two touchdowns. Flacco’s obligatory bad interception came on a play-action pass intended for Mike Wallace. It was a poor decision by Flacco but Wallace gave up on his route, which allowed Byron Maxwell to swoop in for an easy pick. Aside from that, Flacco could do no wrong. He flourished when the Ravens went no-huddle and attacked the middle of the field. Sunday represented his highest yardage output since Week 2 of last season. Flacco will be an option in two-quarterback leagues next week against New England.
