Cole Beasley caught 2-of-3 targets for 19 yards in the Cowboys' Week 12 loss to the Chargers.

This is the norm for Beasley now, which obviously makes him irrelevant in fantasy.
Nov 23 - 7:44 PM

Travis Benjamin caught 3-of-3 targets for 50 yards in the Chargers' Week 12 Thanksgiving win over Dallas.

Benjamin ripped a 46-yard gain early on, then was quiet the rest of the way. He did see an uptick in usage when Mike Williams left with a first-quarter knee injury. Either way, Benjamin isn't a big enough part of the Chargers' offense for legitimate fantasy viability. He does get a plus matchup in a "revenge" game against the Browns next on the docket, for whatever that's worth.
Nov 23 - 7:43 PM

Dez Bryant caught 3-of-5 targets for 37 yards in the Cowboys' Week 12 loss to the Chargers.

Bryant was held without a catch in the first half and was trailed by CB Casey Hayward much of the afternoon. Bryant has posted a couple duds in the three games since Ezekiel Elliott's suspension went into effect. He had a 3-39 day Week 10 at Atlanta and followed it up with an 8-63 last week. Bryant has underperformed greatly in 2017 and is more of a WR3 at this point in time. He gets a matchup with Josh Norman next Thursday night in Washington.

Jason Witten caught all seven of his targets for 44 yards in the Cowboys' Week 12 loss to the Chargers.

The Chargers smother tight ends defensively, so this was actually a decent PPR day for Witten. Dak Prescott could have had him for a touchdown in the fourth quarter, but Prescott missed him and threw a 90-yard pick-six instead. Witten will be at the bottom of the TE1 picture next Thursday in D.C.
Nov 23 - 7:40 PM

Terrance Williams caught 4-of-5 targets for 54 yards in the Cowboys' Week 12 loss to the Chargers.

The 54 yards led the team on a day Dak Prescott only threw for 179 yards, which was his third game in a row held under 180 yards since Ezekiel Elliott's suspension. Williams pops up here and there but is generally off the fantasy map.
Nov 23 - 7:38 PM

Tyrell Williams caught 2-of-3 targets for 58 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers' Week 12 Thanksgiving win over the Cowboys.

The touchdown -- from 27 yards out in Cowboys CB Anthony Brown's coverage -- was just Williams' second this season. Williams saw more usage when Mike Williams (knee) left Thursday night's game with a first-quarter knee injury and did not return. Tyrell has played a lot of snaps all year, but the Chargers don't call plays designed to specifically get him the ball. Perhaps that will change some if Mike is out for an extended period.
Nov 23 - 7:38 PM

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

Alfred Morris rushed nine times for 36 yards in the Cowboys' Week 12 loss to the Chargers.

He wasn't targeted in the passing game. Rod Smith also saw nine carries and added two receptions in this backfield timeshare. Morris had a solid Week 11 against the Eagles but took a step back in this one. He gets a #RevengeGame next Thursday night against the Redskins as a TD-dependent RB2/3.
Nov 23 - 7:35 PM

Austin Ekeler rushed six times for 15 yards and caught 3-of-3 targets for 55 yards in the Chargers' Week 12 Thanksgiving win over Dallas.

The undrafted rookie was Los Angeles' backfield sparkplug in this one as Melvin Gordon struggled mightily on the ground (21/65/0). Unfortunately, Ekeler still hasn't cut more into Gordon's workload and is only being used as a change-of-pace back. He will be a low-end flex option in Week 13 against Cleveland.
Nov 23 - 7:33 PM

Rod Smith rushed nine times for 41 yards and one touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 12 loss to the Chargers on Thanksgiving.

He and Alfred Morris each carried the ball nine times, with Smith getting the short touchdown in the fourth quarter. It was Dallas' first touchdown since early Week 10. Smith also added two catches for seven yards. The Cowboys were playing from behind all day, so the running game obviously wasn't a big part of the game plan much of the afternoon. Smith is a low-upside RB4.
Nov 23 - 7:32 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.
Nov 23 - 7:29 PM

Redskins declared OT Trent Williams, DL Terrell McClain, S Montae Nicholson, TE Jordan Reed, DL Caraun Reid, C Chase Roullier and LB Martrell Spaight inactive for Week 12 against the Giants.

Williams has been battling a right knee injury all season and couldn't get the green light playing on a short week. Ryan Anderson (knee), Zach Brown (Achilles), Ryan Grant (calf), Matt Ioannidis (hand, thigh), Anthony Lanier (knee), Morgan Moses (ankle, eye), Ty Nsekhe (core), Samaje Perine (finger) and Brandon Scherff (knee) are all active for Thursday night's Thanksgiving nightcap at FedEx Field.
Nov 23 - 7:28 PM

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.
Nov 23 - 7:26 PM

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.
