Jamison Crowder suffered a hip pointer Week 13 against the Cardinals.

Dec 4 - 8:26 PM

Ladarius Green delivered six catches for a career-high 110 yards and one touchdown on 11 targets Sunday in the Steelers' Week 13 win over the Giants.

After seeing limited snaps in his first few games, the training wheels came off for Green on Sunday. With the Giants putting all their time and energy into shutting down Antonio Brown, Green had free reign on Sunday. He was seemingly wide open on every pass that was thrown to him, breaking off gains of 37, 33 and 20 yards. Landon Collins missed his assignment on Green’s only touchdown of the afternoon, which came late in the third quarter. We’ve been cautious not to overhype Green coming off a lengthy injury, but after Sunday’s explosion, it’s hard not to acknowledge his potential. Green will be in the TE1 conversation next week at Buffalo.
Dec 4 - 8:23 PM

Tyrell Williams caught 2-of-4 targets for 47 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers' Week 13 loss to the Bucs.

It was a quiet day for The Gazelle, who was catch-less until he caught a 40-yard touchdown bomb off play action in the fourth quarter, beating Bucs LCB Brent Grimes. Williams had a goose egg at halftime. Playing through a torn labrum in his shoulder, Williams may be a risky fantasy bet the rest of the way. He does draw a favorable matchup in Week 14 against the Panthers.
Dec 4 - 7:54 PM

Larry Fitzgerald hauled in 10-of-11 targets for 78 yards in the Cardinals' Week 13 win over the Redskins.

Fitzgerald was the only receiver doing anything early, racking up five catches for 59 yards including a great catch-and-run in the two-minute drill in the first half. He kept it going after the break, adding another five catches including some big third-down conversions. Fitz also drew a third-down-converting penalty on Josh Norman on the game-sealing touchdown drive. Still going strong at the back-end of a spectacular career, Fitzgerald became the youngest player to reach 1,100 catches in NFL history on Sunday while jumping both Cris Carter and Marvin Harrison for third on the all-time list. The Canton-bound receiver will be a back-end WR1 next week in Miami.
Dec 4 - 7:54 PM

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.
Dec 4 - 7:48 PM

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.
