49ers signed LT Joe Staley to a two-year extension through 2019.

Staley signed a nine-year, $43.66 million contract in June 2009, but the 49ers have decided to reward his perennially dominant play with a two-year extension. The deal surely includes a raise on Staley's currently scheduled $2.7 million for 2014. It's a clear message to holdout RG Alex Boone, and perhaps walk-year LG Mike Iupati. CSN Bay Area reports Staley had been quietly seeking an extension, unlike Boone and Vernon Davis, who made noise all offseason. One of the game's truly elite blindside protectors, Staley hasn't missed a game since 2009. He turns 30 next month.

Chris Hogan (shoulder) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

He's not going to play Sunday against the Dolphins. Hogan hasn't practiced since getting hurt in Week 8 and should be considered no better than questionable for Week 13. Danny Amendola and Phillip Dorsett will continue to play more snaps Sunday, while Brandin Cooks remains a strong WR1.

Devonta Freeman (concussion) remained limited in Friday's practice.

ESPN Falcons reporter Vaughn McClure considers Freeman unlikely to play against the Bucs. Tevin Coleman handled 21 touches against Seattle last Monday night and would be in line for a similar workload against Tampa Bay at home in a much easier matchup. He'd be a near auto-play in DFS.

Browns run game coordinator Kirby Wilson said the team wants to keep Duke Johnson on the field "as much as possible because we believe so strongly in him as a playmaker."

Johnson set a season-high in snap rate in Week 10 against the Lions, playing 58.8% of the downs in what was a close game that Cleveland nearly pulled out on the road. Johnson had a season-high 10 carries in that game, turning them into 54 yards, adding six catches for 34 more yards. Johnson had touched the ball at least 10 times in four straight games before last week. The Browns just now realizing Johnson needs to be playing more would be a real concern regarding their decision-making abilities. Ultimately, we expect Johnson to remain an 8-12 touches per game player as a volatile RB2/3 with more of a floor in PPR formats.

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.
Nov 23 - 7:36 PM

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.
