Byron Marshall logged 18 yards on four carries while delivering one catch for 12 yards on two targets Thursday in the Redskins’ Week 12 win over the Giants.

He was limited to change-of-pace duties behind Samaje Perine. In the second half, Marshall dropped a pass from Kirk Cousins that Janoris Jenkins returned for a pick-six. Marshall should continue to see work on passing downs with Chris Thompson (leg) sidelined, but it’s unlikely he’ll emerge as a fantasy option down the stretch.

Ryan Grant contributed one catch for three yards on two targets Thursday in the Redskins’ Week 12 win over the Giants.

He drew fewer targets Jamison Crowder, Niles Paul, Josh Doctson and Samaje Perine. Grant will stay in the mix with Terrelle Pryor (ankle) done for the year, though his fantasy appeal remains limited. He gets the Cowboys in Week 13.

Wayne Gallman produced 37 yards on nine carries while securing two catches for six yards on two targets Thursday in the Giants’ Week 12 loss to the Redskins.

Gallman outgained Orleans Darkwa on the ground while out-snapping him 22-19. The 11 touches were Gallman’s most since Week 6, though he managed a long run of only nine yards. It appears Gallman has worked his way back into a timeshare with Darkwa, though trusting any Giants running back in this broken offense is probably a fool’s errand. The rookie will look to end a seven-game touchdown drought next week against the Raiders.

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.

Roger Lewis corralled three-of-seven targets for 26 yards Thursday in the Giants’ Week 12 loss to the Redskins.

Lewis was the big hero last week with his overtime catch versus Kansas City, but there were no such heroics on Thursday night. He converted a third-and-long with an impressive 19-yard catch in the second quarter, but was otherwise held in check. He gets a favorable matchup against the Raiders next week, but remains little more than a desperate bench stash in fantasy.
Nov 24 - 1:01 AM

Orleans Darkwa managed just 30 yards on 11 carries while adding one catch for nine yards on one target Thursday in the Giants’ Week 12 loss to the Redskins.

Darkwa’s workload Thursday was his lightest since Week 7. What’s more concerning is that he was out-snapped by rookie Wayne Gallman, who led the Giants with 37 yards on nine carries. With Gallman beginning to get more work, Darkwa will just be an RB3 next week at Oakland.
Nov 24 - 1:00 AM

Shane Vereen provided 18 yards on three carries while grabbing one-of-two targets for nine yards Thursday in the Giants’ Week 12 loss to the Redskins.

His lone catch came with 1:49 remaining in the fourth quarter. Vereen has seen a combined nine touches over his last two games and hasn’t visited the end zone since Week 3 of 2016. As the third-string running back in a bad offense, there’s not much to like here. Vereen can be safely ignored in all fantasy formats next week against the Raiders.
Nov 24 - 12:58 AM

Eli Manning completed 13-of-27 passes for 113 yards and one interception Thursday in the Giants’ Week 12 loss to the Redskins.

Eli took four sacks for a loss of 27 yards. Manning was doomed from the start playing without Sterling Shepard (migraines) and never got on the same page with Evan Engram (three catches for 18 yards on seven targets). He only made it to the red zone once and ended the game by throwing a pitiful interception into double coverage. Even with all his weapons, Manning is hit-or-miss. Without them, he can barely function. Manning gets a glorious matchup against Oakland in Week 13, though his streaming appeal hinges on Shepard's availability.
Nov 24 - 12:57 AM

Kirk Cousins completed 19-of-31 passes for 242 yards with two touchdowns and one interception while adding four yards on three carries Thursday in the Redskins’ Week 12 win over the Giants.

He was also sacked six times for a loss of 41 yards. Cousins didn’t have his best stuff on Thursday night, which was understandable given the short week. It didn’t help that the Redskins were playing without pass-catching back Chris Thompson and star tight end Jordan Reed. Cousins made lemonade out of lemons, showing a strong connection with Jamison Crowder (7-141-1) while also finding Josh Doctson for the go-ahead touchdown with under four minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. Cousins’ interception—which Janoris Jenkins returned for a 52-yard touchdown—wasn’t his fault as the ball deflected off Byron Marshall. The main complaint was that Cousins held onto the ball too long, which is something he’ll need to iron out for next week’s game at Dallas.
Nov 24 - 12:14 AM

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.
Nov 24 - 12:12 AM

Josh Doctson nabbed two-of-four targets for 28 yards and a touchdown Thursday in the Redskins’ Week 12 win over the Giants.

Doctson salvaged the night for his fantasy owners by hauling in a 14-yard touchdown strike from Kirk Cousins with 3:39 remaining in the fourth quarter. It was an impressive catch against tight coverage from Janoris Jenkins. Doctson made a mental mistake on his first catch, running out of bounds instead of extending for what should have been an easy first down. He also drew a pass interference flag that moved the Redskins up 37 yards late in the first half. The 2016 first-rounder gets another favorable draw next week against the Cowboys. Still, he’s just a boom-or-bust WR3/4.
Nov 24 - 12:11 AM

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.
Nov 24 - 12:09 AM

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.
Nov 24 - 12:07 AM

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.
