Andy Dalton completed 19-of-30 passes for 325 yards, five touchdowns, and one interception in the Bengals' Week 8 rout of the Jets.

Dalton has now thrown for at least 325 yards in three straight games. Over that span, the redhead has also tossed 11 touchdowns to just two interceptions. With a plethora of weapons at his disposal, this is the Dalton some expected to see this season. He has so many options in the passing game. A.J. Green is roasting defensive backs deep, and Marvin Jones has emerged as the No. 2 receiver and a dangerous red-zone option. Dalton found Jones four times for touchdowns against the Jets. The other score went to Jermaine Gresham from four yards away. The Bengals visited the red zone six times and scored five touchdowns. Dalton is proving himself to be a legit high-end QB2. But if we've learned anything with Dalton in recent years, it's that he'll eventually come crashing back to Earth hard. The Bengals have a date with the Dolphins on Thursday night.

The Detroit Free Press reports WLB DeAndre Levy (questionable, knee) "finally appears ready" to return.

Levy is trending toward playing after he was more involved in practice this week. Per beat writer Dave Birkett, "all indications" are he’s going to be active. Levy has been out since Week 1 and should see limited snaps in his first back. A healthy Levy is a huge upgrade for Detroit's stretch-run defense.

Marvin Jones (quad) is listed as questionable for Week 14 against the Bears.

Jones took last week off, but he is due back against Chicago. Beat writers have been increasingly confident about his status. Jones is a fringe WR3, and probably best viewed as a WR4 considering his lack of production the past two months.

NFL suspended Browns WR Jordan Payton four games for violating the league's performance-enhancing drugs policy.

It'll end Payton's season. A fifth-round pick out of UCLA, Payton earned only 30 snaps on offense while wallowing behind Terrelle Pryor, Corey Coleman, Andrew Hawkins, Ricardo Louis, and Rashard Higgins on the Browns' wide receiver depth chart. Payton may be hard pressed to make the Browns' 2017 roster, but he will be given every opportunity in next year's training camp.

Suspended Raiders OLB Aldon Smith met with commissioner Roger Goodell on Friday to discuss his reinstatement.

The NFL was expected to make a ruling on Smith's reinstatement last week but obviously that didn't happen. After finally getting a face-to-face with Goodell, Smith's status should be determined in relatively short order. Smith has been serving an indefinite suspension following repeated violations of the league's substance abuse policy. The former first-team All-Pro hasn't played an NFL snap in over a year.

Mark Ingram (toe, knee, questionable) returned to a limited practice on Friday.

That puts him on track to play Sunday against Tampa Bay. Ingram has had some big weeks recently, but his usage remains somewhat of a guessing game. Last week he was out-snapped by Travaris Cadet. Ingram will be a risky RB2 against a Bucs' defense that has performed much better recently.
Dec 9 - 3:12 PM

Michael Thomas (foot) returned to Saints practice on Friday but is listed as questionable for Week 14 at Tampa Bay.

Thomas was "limited," meaning his only practice participation of the week was a "limited" workout in Friday's session. Still, it would be a surprise if he did not start Sunday at Tampa Bay. Thomas has emerged as the Saints' best wideout as rookie, leading the team in all receiving categories.
Dec 9 - 3:01 PM

Tyrann Mathieu (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 14.

The Cards will stay with Tyvon Branch at slot corner, where he has been terrific this year and arguably even better than Mathieu, whose play has declined due to a multitude of injuries. Mathieu remains out indefinitely. Despite this news, we would not upgrade Jarvis Landry's matchup because he'll now face Branch.
Dec 9 - 2:40 PM

Saints SS Kenny Vaccaro has dropped the appeal of his four-game PEDs ban and will be out for Weeks 14-17.

Vaccaro's absence improves the fantasy matchup for Cameron Brate, who will take on the Saints in both Weeks 14 and 16. Barring an unlikely playoff berth by the Saints, Vaccaro's season is over. Vaccaro was inconsistent his first three years in the league, but his level of play rose immensely as a fourth-year pro. The Saints have him under contract for one more year at $5.68 million.

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak remained noncommittal Friday when asked about Trevor Siemian's (foot, questionable) Week 14 availability.

Beat writers have sounded optimistic about Siemian's chances of facing the Titans, but Kubiak said he wouldn't have a firm decision until he watches Siemian in Saturday's walkthrough. Kubiak said Friday that Siemian's status would be decided "tomorrow." If Paxton Lynch has to make another start, the fantasy outlooks for Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders would both take a hit.
Dec 9 - 2:29 PM

Jordan Matthews (ankle, questionable) said he will "definitely" play in Week 14 against the Redskins.

Matthews has practiced fully the last two days and should be all set to resume his role as the Eagles' primary slot receiver. Last week marked the first absence of J-Matt's three-year career. Fantasy owners should view him as a WR3 this week.
Dec 9 - 2:28 PM

49ers LT Joe Staley (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Week 14 against the Jets.

This takes a bit of air out of Colin Kaepernick's bounce-back balloon, and is a concern for Carlos Hyde as well. While Staley has struggled at times in pass protection this year, he has remained one of the NFL's premier run-blocking left tackles. Staley has started in 92 straight games for the Niners.
