  • Ryan Mathews hurts shoulder on 32-yard TD run
    Ryan Mathews went to the locker room with a shoulder injury after rushing for a 32-yard touchdown in the third quarter.

    Advice: Mathews was running all over the Rams with 11 carries for 102 yards and the touchdown before leaving. After knocking off the rust in his Week 11 return from a sprained MCL, Mathews was looking good with 110 total yards. Branden Oliver and Donald Brown are handling backfield duties with Mathews out. He returned to the sidelines without his shoulder pads, suggesting he's done for the day. Rotoworld.com

  • Taylor Gabriel has one-catch day vs. Falcons
    Taylor Gabriel caught 1-of-2 targets for 13 yards in Cleveland's Week 12 win over the Falcons.

    Advice: The targets were Gabriel's fewest since Week 3. His WR4 value is taking a serious hit with the return of Josh Gordon. He's not a must own in 12-14 team leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Rudolph still isn't playing an every-down role, but saw his snaps increase this week. He caught a 23-yard cross route on Vikings' first play of the game and finished with five targets. Rudolph will be on the TE1 borderline for Week 13 against the Panthers. Rotoworld.com

  • Andrew Hawkins has five-catch afternoon
    Andrew Hawkins caught 5-of-5 targets for 93 yards in Cleveland's Week 12 win over the Falcons.

    Advice: The 93 yards were Hawkins' third most of the season, while he's now cleared 88 in 4-of-5 games. That's the good news. The bad news is, his five targets were his fewest since Week 6, and 11 fewer than Josh Gordon drew. Hawkins is going to remain an important part of the Browns' offense, but his WR4 stock takes a big hit with the return of Gordon. Rotoworld.com

    Mike Evans caught 3-of-11 targets for 47 yards and a touchdown Week 12 against the Bears.

    Advice: Evans caught a 19-yard touchdown to open the scoring in the second quarter, but was relatively quiet the rest of the day. He still saw a team-high 11 targets, and is clearly going nowhere in the Bucs' passing game. He will be a borderline WR1 against the Bengals Week 13. Rotoworld.com

Nelson still led the Packers in receiving in a game where Rodgers only completed 19 passes. He could be shadowed by Darrelle Revis next week against the Patriots, but will remain a top-five receiver play. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan tosses two scores in narrow defeat
    Matt Ryan completed 27-of-43 passes for 273 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Atlanta's 26-24, Week 12 loss to the Browns.

    Advice: Ryan also lost a fumble. It was a highly uneven performance, but one that had the Falcons in line for a victory until coach Mike Smith once again forgot how to manage the clock. As usual, Ryan took a beating behind the Falcons' patchwork offensive line. His pick was a ball he force fed to Julio Jones that was easily nabbed by Browns CB Joe Haden. It was not an electrifying day, but one that's mostly been Ryan's ceiling this season. He'll be a low-end QB1 when the Falcons host the Cardinals in Week 13. Rotoworld.com

  • Tim Wright goes 5-36-2 against Lions
    Patriots TE Tim Wright caught 5-of-6 targets for 36 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 12 win over Detroit.

    Advice: Essentially a tight end-wideout tweener, Wright got a major uptick in snaps as the Patriots transitioned to more of a spread offense to attack Detroit. Wright gave New England an early 7-3 lead on a four-yard touchdown catch. Wright put the Pats ahead for good on an eight-yard second-quarter score. So long as Wright is playing a lot of downs, he will be on the TE1 radar going forward. The Patriots travel to Lambeau to face the red-hot Packers next. Rotoworld.com

  • Teddy Bridgewater has first multi-TD game
    Teddy Bridgewater completed 21-of-37 passes for 210 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in the Vikings' Week 12 loss to the Packers.

    Advice: Despite the two touchdowns, Bridgewater struggled to move the offense. He continues to be indecisive with his reads, with his interception coming on a bad underthrow to Greg Jennings. Bridgewater added five carries for 32 yards, and has shown good mobility outside of the pocket. He targeted Charles Johnson a team-high 11 times and remains limited by his supporting cast. Bridgewater will be a low-end QB2 for Week 13 against the Panthers. Rotoworld.com

  • Vereen gets 16 touches against Lions
    Shane Vereen rushed eight times for 12 yards and caught eight passes for 48 yards in the Patriots' Week 12 win over Detroit.

    Advice: The Patriots played spread offense one week after gashing Indianapolis with a power running game. Vereen was the primary back, playing 62 snaps to LeGarrette Blount's 17. Jonas Gray didn't even play a down. Blount is getting goal-line carries now in New England's offense, which curbs Vereen's fantasy upside. Vereen is still highly active in the passing game, solidifying his PPR stock. Vereen will be an RB2/flex option in Week 13 at Green Bay. Rotoworld.com

Last week's four-TD superstar was nowhere to be found after reporting to the Patriots' facility late on Friday and missing practice. Gray could be doghoused for good.

  • A.J. Green drops 12-121 line on Texans in win
    A.J. Green caught 12 balls for 121 yards in the Bengals' Week 12 win over the Texans.

    Advice: The Texans did Green a favor by keeping top CB Johnathan Joseph away from his side, and letting Green go to work on second-year UDFA A.J. Bouye. Bouye got such a good whipping that DC Romeo Crennel benched him for Darryl Morris early in the second half. AJG went on to whip Morris repeatedly for first-down catches. Green now has four career games of double-digit receptions, and his dozen on Sunday were a single-game career high. With stat lines of 6-127-1 and 12-121 over his last two games, Green will be a top-shelf fantasy WR1 when the Bengals take on the Buccaneers next. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: So is LeGarrette Blount. Gray is "up" despite missing Friday's practice, but his usage and role are entirely up in the air. It wouldn't be surprising if he got 12-14 carries against Detroit. It wouldn't be surprising, either, if he didn't play at all. He's an extremely volatile Week 12 fantasy start. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Gray to play, split work with Blount
    Jonas Gray is expected to be active for Week 12 against the Lions despite oversleeping and missing Friday's practice.

    Advice: LeGarrette Blount will also be active for the Patriots after being signed earlier in the week. New England will "divvy up" the carries between the two big backs, while Shane Vereen will also play heavy snaps. We're avoiding both Gray and Blount in fantasy against Detroit's stout interior run defense. Vereen is a fine RB2/FLEX option with the Lions allowing backs to catch the ball in space. Rotoworld.com

Rudolph should start to see his role increased, but will be a high-risk fantasy option. He's the No. 17 tight end in Rotoworld's Week 12 rankings. Rotoworld.com

Garofolo reports Gray has texted teammates to apologize, including Tom Brady. He is "hoping" to get Bill Belichick to hear his side of the story "this afternoon."

  • Jonas Gray shows up late to Patriots facility
    ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss reports Jonas Gray was not permitted to practice on Friday because he showed up late to the Patriots' facility.

    Advice: Uh oh. The Patriots are a zero-tolerance team when it comes to matters like this, and for as great as Gray was in fantasy football last week, he is a replaceable player. That is especially the case after New England signed LeGarrette Blount to a two-year deal on Thursday. Gray's usage for Week 12 against the Lions is now entirely uncertain. Blount could steal his role. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: In his first game off sports hernia surgery, Rudolph played on just 29.7 percent of the snaps and saw no targets. With the game on the line, the Vikings chose to go with Chase Ford. We'd expect Rudolph to have a bigger role against the Packers in Week 12, but it's impossible to be certain and the matchup is far more difficult. He'd be a very high-risk fantasy play. Rotoworld.com

    The NFL and Elias Sports Bureau made a stat change Tuesday, crediting Jonas Gray with 37 carries for 201 yards and four touchdowns in Week 11 against the Colts.

    Advice: Gray had a previous rushing line of 38-199-4. He had a minus-two-yard rush nullified because of a penalty. This is huge news if you play in a league with bonuses for 200-plus yards rushing, which many do. Gray will likely be the most heavily added player in Week 12, but we need to temper expectations.

  • Expect different plan from Patriots vs. DET
    ESPN Boston expects a "different offensive approach" out of the Patriots in Sunday's Week 12 game against the Lions.

    Advice: Recent Patriot gameplans when facing the Colts have been to smash them in the mouth with power runs. That is not going to work against a Lions defense that leads the league in rush yards allowed per game (68.8), YPC allowed (3.03) and is tied for second in touchdowns allowed (4). It's risky to project Bill Belichick's thoughts, but this certainly feels like a Shane Vereen game. Gray is a riskier RB2 than many think off his four-touchdown outburst. Rotoworld.com

    Ryan Mathews' knee does not appear to be a concern for Week 12.

    Advice: Mathews was spotted limping out of the locker room on Sunday, but insisted he felt "great." His knee was not a focus of his post-game comments. "I was just doing what I (could) when my number was called," Mathews said of handling the ball 17 times against the Raiders. "The coaching staff had a plan for me, and it worked." We'd expect similar usage against the Rams in Week 12, though it would be far from surprising if Mathews surpassed the 20-touch threshold. Rotoworld.com

    Kyle Rudolph played on 14-of-47 snaps (29.7 percent) in Sunday's loss to the Bears.

    Advice: In his first game off sports hernia surgery, Rudolph primarily played in passing situations. Rhett Ellison (24 snaps) and Chase Ford (22) were the early-down tight ends. It was still disappointing to see Rudolph get zero targets in the best matchup he'll see all season. With Teddy Bridgewater struggling and a tough spot against Green Bay in Week 12, Rudolph is better left as a bench hold. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: In his first two games off a toe injury, Green was limited in practice. But he took "every rep" last week and got another boost when Saints CB Keenan Lewis (knee) was hobbled. The result was a 6-127-1 line, reestablishing Green as what we all know he is -- one of the game's premier wideouts. Now healthy, he's a good bet to feast on the Texans in Week 12. Rotoworld.com

The Patriots still used him in the short passing game, with Vereen finishing behind only Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski in targets. Gray played over Vereen in goal-line situations, and should continue to get the majority of carries. Vereen will be a game-flow dependent RB3 in Week 12. Rotoworld.com

  • Jonas Gray explodes for 199 yards, 4 TDs
    Jonas Gray had 38 carries for 199 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 11 win over the Colts.

    Advice: The Patriots featured Gray in a workhorse role, giving him the majority of snaps over Shane Vereen. It's a similar strategy to what New England did to the Colts in the playoffs last year, when they rode LeGarrette Blount and Stevan Ridley to six touchdowns. Gray got goal-line and early-down work over Vereen, who finished with five touches. All four of his touchdowns came from inside the five-yard line. Gray should continue to get the bulk of the carries going forward, but is going to be hard to trust in a Week 12 matchup against the Lions. Available in 80 percent of Yahoo leagues, Gray needs to be owned in all formats. Rotoworld.com

    Ryan Mathews rushed 16 times for 70 yards and caught a five-yard pass in the Chargers' Week 11 win over the Raiders.

    Advice: Mathews "lost" 14 touches to Branden Oliver and was pulled on red-zone plays in favor of San Diego's undrafted rookie. But Mathews' performance between the twenties was the most positive takeaway we had from this game. He showed sharp cutting ability and kept the chains moving on the ground. Expect Mathews' workloads to rise as the season progresses. Although touchdown dependent to some extent, Mathews should be locked back in as a fantasy RB2. Rotoworld.com

  • Jordy Nelson eats Bradley Fletcher for dinner
    Jordy Nelson caught four passes for 109 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 11 blowout of the Eagles.

    Advice: Nelson's day should have been even bigger. On a 64-yard catch in the first quarter, he just got tripped up by the shoestrings inside the 10-yard line. Later, he roasted Bradley Fletcher (as he did all day) and Fletcher grabbed Nelson's arm in the end zone, leading to a pass interference call. And finally, Jordy dropped a second-half pass that would have gone for at least a 40-yard gain. Still, Nelson proved once again he's unstoppable with Aaron Rodgers playing some of the best quarterback we've seen in the last decade. He'll be in the conversation as the No. 1 WR for Week 12 when Green Bay travels to Minnesota. Rotoworld.com

    Randall Cobb caught 10 passes for 129 yards in Sunday's Week 11 blowout of the Eagles.

    Advice: For some reason, the Eagles couldn't get stud slot corner Brandon Boykin on Cobb. So Aaron Rodgers' slot man went off, finding massive gaps in the Eagles defense and hauling in 10-of-13 targets. Cobb was unlucky not to find the end zone, but owners had to know a natural regression was coming there at some point. He came into Week 11 with at least one score in six straight games and had 10 on the season. Cobb will remain a no-brainer top-12 option at Minnesota in Week 12. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Rudolph played, but was not targeted and was clearly on a snap count in his first game back from sports hernia surgery. Fantasy owners may want to see Rudolph actually play effectively on a game before firing him back up as a TE1 following this dud. It doesn't help that Teddy Bridgewater and the entirety of Minnesota's passing "attack" has done little to nothing in five straight games. The Vikings host the Packers in Week 12.

    Matt Ryan completed 31-of-45 passes for 268 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions in the Falcons' 19-17, Week 11 win over the Panthers.

    Advice: The 4-6 Falcons are laughably now in first place in the NFC South. Ryan hasn't thrown for 300 yards since Week 5 and has tossed one or fewer touchdowns five of the past six games, so he's not producing many fantasy points. On his touchdown pass, Ryan hooked up with Roddy White on a simple drag route from two yards out. Ryan will be tough to sell as a QB1 next week against the Browns. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Green was finally "back," routinely making big catches in tight spaces and on third down. He displayed some seriously fancy footwork on his 24-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter. Green drew early shadow coverage from Keenan Lewis, but ended up devouring undrafted rookie CB Brian Dixon.

    Teddy Bridgewater completed 18-of-28 passes for 158 yards, a touchdown, and an interception in the Vikings' Week 11 loss to the Bears.

    Advice: He managed nine yards on five carries. Bridgewater is small and plays small in the pocket, and got nothing going outside of dump-off completions against arguably the NFL's worst pass defense. The adverse weather conditions -- snow and bitter cold -- seemed to affect Bridgewater throughout the game, and he was indecisive with his reads. The Bears' pass rush suddenly appeared rejuvenated. Bridgewater was ineffective for the fifth consecutive game. He will be a low-end two-quarterback-league option when the Vikings take on the Packers in Week 12. Rotoworld.com

  • Kyle Rudolph is active for Week 11
    Kyle Rudolph is active for Week 11, as expected.

    Advice: The Vikings have hinted Rudolph might be on a snap count in his first game back from sports hernia surgery, but his matchup is mouth watering against a Bears defense that has shown zero ability to stop tight ends this year. Rotoworld.com

  • Kyle Rudolph (groin) to be on snap count?
    Vikings coach Mike Zimmer hinted Kyle Rudolph could be on a snap count during his first game back from sports-hernia surgery.

    Advice: "We’ll have a plan for him on how many plays we’ll want to use him in," Zimmer said. "We’ll be smart with him." Rudolph has not played since Week 3, but was able to get in full practices on Thursday and Friday. Despite the workload concerns, he is an attractive streaming option against a Bears defense that has given up seven touchdowns to tight ends in the last three games. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Mathews listed as probable
    Ryan Mathews (knee) is listed as probable for Week 11.

    Advice: He was a full participant in practice all week. We would be surprised if Mathews got fewer than 12 carries against the Raiders, and he could push for 20 if game flow allows. He's a solid RB2 play in his first game back. Rotoworld.com

  • Vikings expect TE Rudolph to play in Week 11
    Vikings coach Mike Zimmer stated Friday that he expects Kyle Rudolph (groin) to play in Week 11 at Chicago.

    Advice: Rudolph practiced fully on Thursday and Friday and is back on the TE1 radar immediately against a Bears defense that plays the tight end more poorly than any team in football. The Packers specifically designed their Week 10 game plan to attack Chicago's weakness, making Richard Rodgers and Andrew Quarless every-down players at the expense of Davante Adams' snaps. Rudolph appears on track for a full workload in the best matchup he will get all year. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Mathews practicing in full for Week 11
    Ryan Mathews (knee) is practicing in full for Week 11.

    Advice: Barring an unforeseen setback, Mathews is ready to resume No. 1 duties in the Bolts' backfield. The Union-Tribune San Diego's Michael Gehlken expects Mathews to handle roughly 15 touches vs. Oakland, which would be more than enough to put him on the RB2 radar. Mathews is going to get scoring opportunities against the Raiders' soft defense. Rotoworld.com

  • Andrew Hawkins still limited on Thursday
    Andrew Hawkins (knee) remained limited on Thursday.

    Advice: Hawkins should be on track to return against the Texans, but it's concerning that he's yet to get in a full practice after surprisingly missing last Thursday's game. Owners planning to trot Hawkins out as their WR3/4 need to double-check his status on Friday. Rotoworld.com

  • Kyle Rudolph gets in 'full' practice Thursday
    Kyle Rudolph (groin) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

    Advice: Rudolph will likely still be listed as "questionable" on Friday's injury report, but he's now fully on track to suit up against the Bears. Although he's been sidelined since Week 3, Rudolph will slide in as an immediate TE1 against a Bears defense allowing the most fantasy points to tight ends. Rotoworld.com
