NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Panthers have "begun laying the groundwork" for a head-coaching search in 2014.

Although Ron Rivera is expected to keep his job through the season -- and is coming off an impressive 38-0 win over the Giants -- he's unlikely to return as Carolina's head coach in 2014. Rivera was not handpicked by first-year GM Dave Gettleman, and the Panthers have already begun doing "background checks" on potential replacements. Rivera is essentially a lame duck in 2013, who'd probably need a legitimate miracle to last into next year.

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.

Zach Ertz caught 9-of-15 targets for 79 yards and one touchdown in the Eagles' Week 13 loss to the Bengals.

Carson Wentz fired off a season-high 60 pass attempts, and Ertz was targeted on 25 percent of them. He was sitting at two catches for a measly six yards much of the day before catching a 13-yard touchdown on 4th-and-5 on a busted coverage late in the third quarter and then racking up a bunch of catches in garbage time. As long as Jordan Matthews (ankle) continues to be out, Ertz will be a locked-in TE1. He's worth streaming consideration next week against the Redskins.
Dec 4 - 4:48 PM

Blake Bortles completed 19-of-42 passes for 181 yards and two interceptions in the Jaguars' Week 13 loss to the Broncos.

His lone positive contribution was a 22-yard rushing score in the second half. Bortles threw the 11th pick six of his career to Broncos RCB Bradley Roby on a pass intended for Allen Robinson. Both of Bortles' picks were intended for Robinson, in fact. Bortles will continue to be a rushing- and garbage-time-dependent QB2 in Week 14 against the Vikings' shutdown pass defense.
Dec 4 - 4:47 PM

Devonta Freeman rushed 15 times for 56 yards and two touchdowns in the Falcons' Week 13 loss to the Chiefs, adding four receptions for 49 additional yards.

Freeman now has four touchdowns in two games since Tevin Coleman returned. For whatever reason, perhaps freshness, he's been more productive with his sophomore teammate in the lineup. Freeman should have another day against the free-falling Rams in Week 14.
Dec 4 - 4:46 PM

Dennis Pitta snagged nine-of-11 targets for 90 yards and two touchdowns Sunday in the Ravens' Week 13 win over the Dolphins.

Pitta ended a 17-game touchdown drought on Sunday and he did it with style. Baltimore made a point to attack the middle of the field, which, coincidentally, is where Pitta makes his living. His first touchdown came on a 13-yard pass Joe Flacco managed to squeeze between Isa Abdul-Quddus and Bacarri Rambo. He went for six again late in the first half, this time beating Rambo in zone coverage for a nine-yard score. Pitta did lose a fumble in the fourth quarter but the Ravens were way ahead at that point. His nine catches matched a season-high and the 90 yards he tallied were his most since Week 2. Pitta will be a TE2 consideration next week against New England.
Dec 4 - 4:44 PM

Spencer Ware rushed 14 times for 29 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 13 win over the Falcons, adding three receptions for 23 additional yards and another score.

Ware could have had a much bigger day, but Alex Smith flat missed him on a gimme 61-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. It was an odd afternoon, with Ware's scores masking an otherwise extremely pedestrian day. Ware is averaging just 48 yards rushing over his past five games, totaling a modest 110 receiving yards in the process. His workloads remain voluminous, but he'll be a bottom-end RB1 against the Raiders in Week 14.
Dec 4 - 4:42 PM

Travis Kelce caught 8-of-8 targets for 140 yards in the Chiefs' Week 13 win over the Falcons.

The team leader in every receiving category, Kelce continually ripped the Falcons down the middle of the field. The 100-yard effort was his third in a row, while the 140 yards were a new career high. Kelce has been good since 2014, but he's been becoming great in the absence of Jeremy Maclin. Even with Maclin finally nearing a return from his groin injury, it's hard to see Kelce slowing down. He'll be an elite TE1 for the fantasy playoffs. The Raiders are an attackable Week 14 matchup.
Dec 4 - 4:39 PM

Julian Edelman caught 8-of-12 targets for 101 yards in the Patriots' Week 13 win over the Rams.

The Patriots attacked the Rams with a ball-out-quick passing game in order to mitigate the impact of Los Angeles' talented defensive line. The Pats also put double and triple teams on DT Aaron Donald. Edelman took over as the focal point of this offensive approach and was no match for Lamarcus Joyner in the slot. Edelman has earned every-week WR1 treament heading into a Week 14 date with the Ravens on Monday Night Football.
Dec 4 - 4:33 PM

Dion Lewis rushed five times for 27 yards and caught 4-of-5 targets for 11 yards in the Patriots' Week 13 win over the Rams.

LeGarrette Blount (18) led New England's backfield in touches, while Lewis (9) and James White (7) continued to share passing-back duties. The Patriots used a lot of Lewis early in game, then put him on bubble wrap the rest of the way in an easy win. We'd project Lewis for 9-11 touches in Week 14 against Baltimore. Lewis will be a low-end flex option in that Monday night game.
Dec 4 - 4:28 PM

Drew Brees completed 31-of-44 passes for 326 yards, zero touchdowns and three interceptions in New Orleans' 28-13, Week 13 loss to the Lions.

It was Brees' first touchdown-less game at home since Week 4, 2009, a span of 60 games. It was an inconceivable outcome considering his 2016 play and weak opponent. Brees may have been playing through an injury, as his deep passes were wobbling much more than usual. He lacked his usual drive. Provided everything is alright physically, Brees will bounce back as a mid-range QB1 for next week's trip to Tampa.
Dec 4 - 4:25 PM

Jeremy Hill rushed 23 times for 33 yards and one touchdown in the Bengals' Week 13 win over the Eagles.

He added two catches for 12 yards on three targets. The one-yard touchdown run after a 50-yard catch by Cody Core definitely saved Hill's fantasy day, though it can be viewed as a big positive that he received 25 total touches. In the two games without Gio Bernard and A.J. Green, Hill has handled 43 total touches as one of the focal points of the offense. Unfortunately, he's faced two strong run defenses. Hill will get a much better matchup Week 14 at the hapless Browns.
