Panthers fourth-round OG Edmund Kugbila (injured reserve) will undergo knee surgery.

Kugbila was placed on season-ending injured reserve with a hamstring injury on August 27. Since he's out for the year, Kugbila might as well just have the knee cleaned up so he can come back 100 percent next spring.

Evan Engram came down with three catches for 18 yards on seven targets Thursday in the Giants’ Week 12 loss to the Redskins.

Engram saw plenty of targets in Sterling Shepard’s absence but obviously didn’t move the needle much in this one. The rookie committed two drops, which gives him nine for the year. That’s second in the league behind only Amari Cooper. This was a night Engram will want to forget, but lucky for him, he’ll be in prime bounce-back position next week against a listless Raiders secondary.

Samaje Perine compiled 100 yards on 24 carries while contributing three catches for 30 yards on four targets Thursday in the Redskins’ Week 12 win over the Giants.

It was a tale of two halves for Perine, who was positively dreadful before the break (three yards on five carries) but excellent after halftime. Perine also helped out in the passing game, though he did commit an ugly drop early in the first quarter. The rookie has now reached 100 yards rushing in back-to-back games and has looked surprisingly good doing it. He’ll be safe to roll out as an RB2 next week at Dallas.

Jamison Crowder pulled in seven-of-10 targets for 141 yards and a touchdown Thursday in the Redskins’ Week 12 win over the Giants.

Crowder was an absolute powerhouse on Thursday and a badly needed source of offense for a team running on fumes. Both teams looked lethargic playing on a short week but Crowder was sharp as ever, putting the Redskins on his back with four catches for 90 yards after halftime. Crowder’s 15-yard touchdown in the third quarter was his first since Week 13 of last season while his 141 yards represented a new career-high. He hurt his knee in the fourth quarter but only missed a few snaps. Now firmly entrenched as Kirk Cousins’ go-to target, Crowder will be in the WR2 mix next Thursday night at Dallas.

Vernon Davis failed to absorb his lone target Thursday in the Redskins’ Week 12 win over the Giants.

Davis entered Week 12 as the Redskins’ lead receiver but was nowhere to be found on Thursday night. The sweet potato yams connoisseur was invisible versus the Giants, drawing a mere one target compared to five for Niles Paul. New York has been among the worst teams in the league at defending tight ends, making Davis’ goose egg all the more puzzling. Davis has played well for the most part this year, but hasn’t scored a touchdown since Week 3. He’ll look to bounce back next Thursday at Dallas.

Hunter Henry caught 5-of-5 targets for 76 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers' Week 12 Thanksgiving win over the Cowboys.

Per beat reporter Jack Wang's calculations, the Chargers are now 5-1 in games where Henry draws at least five targets and 0-5 when he doesn't. Los Angeles' coaching staff decisions with regard to Henry's usage have been egregious all year, but the sophomore tight end has remained one of the NFL's most-efficient pass catchers. Henry will continue to be a boom-bust TE1 option, even in a plum Week 13 draw against the Browns.

Melvin Gordon rushed 21 times for 65 yards and caught 3-of-3 targets for 23 yards in the Chargers' Week 12 Thanksgiving win over Dallas.

Gordon finished with ample volume to make him a top-25 fantasy running back on the week, but he was a liability all night against a Sean Lee-less Cowboys defense he should have shredded. Gordon doesn't make guys miss and is incapable of turning nothing runs into something. He lost nine more touches to Austin Ekeler, whose big-play ability is superior to Gordon's. With all of that said, Gordon is an elite RB1 play each week simply because he gets the ball often and plays in a productive offense.

Dak Prescott completed 20-of-27 passes for 179 yards, no touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Cowboys' 28-6, Week 12 loss to the Chargers on Thanksgiving.

Prescott has been held under 180 yards passing in all three games without Ezekiel Elliott this month. Rod Smith's late-game touchdown run was the Cowboys' first visit to the end zone since early Week 10. Prescott did have a long touchdown run, but it was wiped out on a blatant hold by LT Tyron Smith, and he threw a 90-yard pick-six to Desmond King in the fourth quarter on a play he didn't see a wide-open Jason Witten in the end zone. Prescott, even in a prime spot, will be hard to trust as a fantasy play next Thursday night against the Redskins.
Nov 23 - 7:27 PM

Philip Rivers completed 27-of-33 passes for 434 yards and three touchdowns in the Chargers' Week 12 Thanksgiving win over the Cowboys.

Dak Prescott will undeservedly bear the brunt of blame for Dallas' slump, but Rod Marinelli's defense has been just as much of a liability. They could not cover Keenan Allen all night and hemorrhaged big plays to Hunter Henry and Tyrell Williams. Rivers simply didn't miss, picking apart Dallas even as his field goal kicker got hurt and cost the team points. Rivers draws another favorable matchup in Week 13 against the Browns.

Sterling Shepard (migraines) is inactive for Week 12 against the Redskins.

He traveled with the team but the migraines remained too much to overcome. Travis Rudolph will man the slot with Tavarres King and Roger Lewis outside. Also inactive for the Giants are CB Eli Apple, RT Justin Pugh, OG D.J. Fluker, QB Davis Webb, MLB B.J. Goodson, and LB Calvin Munson.
Nov 23 - 7:22 PM

Keenan Allen caught 11-of-14 targets for 172 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers' Week 12 Thanksgiving win over Dallas.

The Cowboys simply could not cover Allen in the middle of the field, and his cherry on top was a 42-yard score that included numerous broken tackles. Allen is a top-ten NFL wide receiver when healthy, and healthy he has been all season, putting to rest "injury-prone" nonsense of years past when he dealt with fluky injuries. Expect Allen to stay white hot in Week 13 against the Browns.

Chargers WR Mike Williams was carted off the field with a knee injury in the first quarter of Week 12 and will not return.

He entered the game nursing a bum knee. It's a disappointing development for the seventh overall pick in the draft, who missed the first part of the year with a back injury. Williams set a season high by playing 55% of the snaps last week.
