Jonathan Stewart rushed 11 times for 50 yards and caught one pass for three yards in the Panthers' Week 13 loss to Seattle.

Stewart had nowhere to run most of the night. He lost a fumble in the second quarter that put the Panthers out of good field position. Stewart fell out of the gameplan after that, with Mike Tolbert taking over in garbage time. Stewart had scored in two of the last three weeks. He'll remain an RB2 for Week 14 against the Chargers.

Cam Newton completed 14-of-32 passes for 182 yards and a touchdown in Carolina's Week 13 loss to Seattle.

Newton was benched on the opening drive for breaking a dress code violation. He played the rest of the game but didn't get anything going against Seattle’s secondary. Newton's only touchdown was a perfect 55-yard strike to Ted Ginn that split the coverage. He made a couple of wide throws on end-zone shots to Kelvin Benjamin. Newton has been held to one touchdown in three of his last four games. He has a get right matchup with the Chargers in Week 14.

Russell Wilson completed 26-of-36 passes for 277 yards a touchdown and an interception in Seattle’s Week 13 win over the Panthers.

Wilson led Seattle to an early lead in a puntless first half. He wasn’t asked to do much after that, but salvaged his night with a goal-line TD to Jimmy Graham. Wilson had one of his better rushing games, adding 29 yards on three carries. He’s a midrange QB1 for Week 14 against the Packers

Panthers coach Ron Rivera told NBC that Cam Newton's one-play benching on Sunday was the result of a "dress code violation."

Rivera cost his team three points because Newton didn't wear a tie (seriously). Derek Anderson's tipped-ball interception on the game's opening play was a "ball don't lie" if there ever was one. Rivera likely snapped after a year of Russell Westbrook-esque fashion offenses from Newton following games. We're guessing the ol' ball coach won't make the same mistake twice.
Dec 4 - 10:27 PM

Thomas Rawls left Week 13 against the Panthers with a possible concussion.

Rawls went to the locker room after a helmet to helmet hit late in the second quarter. He passed the league's protocol and returned after halftime.
Dec 4 - 9:56 PM

Seahawks FS Earl Thomas was carted off with a cracked tibia in Week 13 against the Panthers.

Thomas went down on a low collision with SS Kam Chancellor. He was trying to intercept a pass from Cam Newton on the play. Thomas had to be carried off the field and was later carted off. He's likely out for the season and playoffs. Thomas is a candidate to be placed on IR next week.

Sterling Shepard pulled in four-of-eight targets for 21 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Giants' Week 13 loss to the Steelers.

Shepard was the intended receiver on Eli Manning’s second interception of the game, at least that’s what it looked like. The Giants were going for it on fourth-and-13 and Manning had to throw up a prayer when he couldn’t find an open receiver. Shepard came down with a one-yard touchdown on the Giants’ last possession, beating William Gay in man coverage on the play. He’s now second among rookie receivers with six touchdowns this season. Shepard should be viewed as a back-end WR3 next week against the Cowboys.

Eli Rogers corralled one-of-three targets for 18 yards Sunday in the Steelers' Week 13 win over the Giants.

Rogers got lost in the shuffle this week. With Ladarius Green emerging as a legit option in the Steelers’ passing game, that may continue to be the case. Rogers was targeted on Ben Roethlisberger’s lone interception. He appeared to have the catch but had it stolen from him by Giants rookie Eli Apple. Rogers will be a tough sell as a WR4 next week at Buffalo.
Dec 4 - 9:07 PM

Victor Cruz wasn't targeted Sunday in the Giants' Week 13 loss to the Steelers.

Cruz played just 26-of-60 offensive snaps and clearly wasn’t a factor. He’s caught a combined three passes over his last four games and hasn’t scored a touchdown since Week 1. Cruz will be well off the fantasy map for next week’s matchup against the division-leading Cowboys.
Dec 4 - 9:05 PM

Will Tye grabbed two catches for 22 yards on four targets Sunday in the Giants' Week 13 loss to the Steelers.

Tye was targeted on fourth-and-one from the three-yard line but couldn’t reel it in. He’s averaged just 15.7 yards over his last three contests and won’t be worth streaming against the Cowboys in Week 14.
Dec 4 - 9:03 PM

Paul Perkins totaled 38 yards on seven carries Sunday in the Giants' Week 13 loss to the Steelers.

Perkins was given one more carry than Rashad Jennings but was not involved in the passing game. Roughly half of his yards came on an 18-yard scramble early in the third quarter. Perkins’ role in in the Giants' offense continues to increase, but he’s still not getting enough work to warrant any real fantasy consideration. He’s merely a bench stash.
Dec 4 - 9:02 PM

Chris Thompson rushed twice for 24 yards and caught 1-of-2 targets for 21 yards Week 13 against the Cardinals.

Thompson had a couple big gains on his limited touches and played plenty of snaps with the Redskins throwing in the second half, but he did not see much work. He is not worth using even in deep PPR formats.
Dec 4 - 8:46 PM

Doug Martin said after Sunday's win over the Chargers that he missed the Bucs' final three drives because he got "bent back" late in the game.

This is the extent of the information available on why Martin didn't play on the Bucs' final three drives. The Bucs turned to Jacquizz Rodgers, who finished with nine touches and handled all of Tampa Bay's clock-killing carries in Sunday's 28-21 road-game win. We suspect Martin will be fine for Week 14.
Dec 4 - 8:44 PM

Vernon Davis caught 5-of-6 targets for 47 yards Week 13 against the Cardinals.

Davis was stuck on one catch for five yards deep into the game, but he caught four passes on the final two drives to help salvage his fantasy day. It could have been even better, but Davis was stopped just short of the goal line after breaking a tackle in the second quarter. Ultimately, 47 yards is a decent performance against a defense which has been stingy to tight ends, but Davis faces another tough test next week in Philadelphia. Even if Jordan Reed remains out, Davis will be nothing more than a back-end TE1.
Dec 4 - 8:43 PM

DeSean Jackson caught 1-of-4 targets for 59 yards Week 13 against the Cardinals.

Jackson dropped a pass and was ridiculously targeted on a goal-line fade against Patrick Peterson in the first half, but he started the second half on a high note by turning a dime by Kirk Cousins into a 59-yard gain down the middle of the field. That ended up being his only catch of the game, however. The low-floor, high-ceiling player will continue to be a volatile WR3 option next week in Philly.
