  • QB Ryan Mallett headed for MRI on pectoral
    Texans QB Ryan Mallett played through an injured right pectoral muscle during Sunday's Week 12 loss to the Bengals.

    Advice: Mallett suffered the potentially season-ending injury in warmups, perhaps explaining his erratic play against the Browns. He's headed for an MRI and if it shows a tear, the chance he's been awaiting for so long is over. The Houston Chronicle is already suggesting that Ryan Fitzpatrick is "likely back" for the foreseeable future, although we wouldn't be shocked if the Texans turned to fourth-round rookie Tom Savage. Bill O'Brien has seen Fitzpatrick's ceiling and hit his head on it. Rotoworld.com

  • Kaepernick underwhelming in win over Skins
    Colin Kaepernick completed 20-of-29 throws for 256 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the 49ers' Week 12 win over Washington.

    Advice: He added nine rushes for 14 yards. Kaepernick kicked off Sunday's scoring with a 30-yard TD dart to Anquan Boldin. As is all too frequently the case, Kap went in the tank thereafter, throwing a third-quarter interception on an ill-advised decision and getting bottled up as a runner. Throw in a fair of lost fumbles by the Niners' running backs and it was a disappointing day for San Francisco's Jekyll & Hyde offense, considering the opponent. Still a one-read quarterback, Kaepernick has a tendency to hesitate when the defense takes away his first read, and he becomes a random streetball-type player thereafter. Kaepernick will not be a viable fantasy QB1 when the 49ers face the Seahawks on Thanksgiving. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Tannehill totals four scores in loss
    Ryan Tannehill completed 26-of-36 passes for 228 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Miami's 39-36, Week 12 loss to the Broncos, adding four rushes for 15 yards and an additional score.

    Advice: Today was the first time in Tannehill's 43-game career that he accounted for four total touchdowns. Tannehill was on point from the beginning, being decisive in the pocket, and accurate on the run. He had a hard time keeping up with Peyton Manning, however, as injuries mounted for the Dolphins' defense. Tannehill's pick was a tipped pass thrown to a tightly-covered Jarvis Landry. A second INT was overturned by defensive holding. It wasn't a perfect game, but Tannehill did all that could reasonably be expected in a high-scoring road jaunt. Much more consistent than he was the first two years of his career, Tannehill will be in the QB1 conversation against the Jets' dreadful secondary next Monday. Rotoworld.com

  • Manning gets back on track with four scores
    Peyton Manning completed 28-of-35 passes for 257 yards and four touchdowns in Denver's 39-36, Week 12 win over the Dolphins.

    Advice: Manning and the Broncos got off to another slow start, but gradually kicked it into gear as the Dolphins' defense got more and more injured. The four-score day was Manning's fourth of the season, and leaves him at 34 through 11 games played. That puts him on pace for 49, which would tie Manning's 2004 mark for third-most all time. Manning has a tough Week 13 road matchup in the Chiefs, but will be a top-three QB1, as usual. Rotoworld.com

  • Drew Stanton overwhelmed by Seahawks
    Drew Stanton completed 14-of-26 passes for 149 yards with no touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's loss at Seattle.

    Advice: Stanton was predictably overwhelmed from the opening snap. The Seahawks, playing at home and desperate to gain ground on the division leaders, stacked the box and ate up the pass-game weapons with the Legion of Boom. Of course, Stanton looked unlikely to complete passes down the field even if they were open as he regressed to early-season levels. Even in a dream matchup at Atlanta in Week 13, Stanton is not a fantasy play. Rotoworld.com

  • Robert Griffin III struggles mightily (again)
    Robert Griffin III completed 11-of-19 passes for 106 yards and rushed four times for 11 yards in the Redskins' Week 12 loss to San Francisco.

    Advice: He took five sacks and lost a fumble on Washington's final offensive play. One week after RG3 almost single-handedly torpedoed Jay Gruden's offense, the Skins' coaching staff attempted to simplify things for their quarterback by running the ball with a lot of volume against San Francisco's normally stout defensive front. Griffin essentially functioned as a game manager, doing nothing to help a red-hot Alfred Morris. The Skins stayed competitive for longer than expected in this game, but not because of their quarterback. We suppose Griffin deserves credit for "playing hard" against a swarming 49ers' pass rush, although we tend to believe all football players should "play hard." Not even in the fantasy QB1 conversation any longer, Griffin will be a risky two-quarterback-league option in Week 13 against the Colts. Rotoworld.com

    Russell Wilson completed 17-of-22 passes for 211 yards with one touchdown and rushed 10 times for 73 yards in Sunday's 19-3 Week 12 win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: With Marshawn Lynch bottled up by a balky back and a swarming Cardinals run defense, Wilson took it upon himself to knock off the division leaders. He did it with error-free football, never coming near a turnover and executing read-option plays beautifully. Wilson remains matchup-proof because of his legs -- he's now gone over 70 rushing yards in five of the last eight games. He'll be a QB1 against even in a difficult matchup at San Francisco on Thanksgiving night. Rotoworld.com

  • Mallett struggles in 2nd start as Texans fall
    Ryan Mallett completed 21-of-45 throws for 189 yards and an interception in the Texans' Week 12 loss to Cincinnati.

    Advice: This game was a big step back for Mallett, who continued to flash his powerful arm but was more frenetic and less in control as a pocket player. Mallett's first pass of the second half was intercepted by Bengals MLB Rey Maualuga. The Texans' run game was nonexistent one week after running all over the Browns. Mallett appears to be a quarterback who requires an effective and high-volume rushing attack to succeed. His accuracy is also highly streaky, and generally not very good. Mallett would be a weak two-quarterback-league play in Week 13 against the Titans. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Mettenberger's numbers look way better than he played. Under heavy pressure all day, he held the ball too long, dropped his eyes too often and took five sacks. His touchdowns came on a deflected crossing pattern to Justin Hunter and a garbage-time toss to Dexter McCluster with the score 40-17.

    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

  • Matthew Stafford struggles mightily @ NE
    Matthew Stafford completed just 18-of-46 throws for 264 yards and an interception in the Lions' Week 12 loss to the Patriots.

    Advice: The Lions' offense has been all kinds of out of sorts this season. That continued Sunday as Detroit was unable to get anything going outside the numbers versus RCB Brandon Browner and LCB Darrelle Revis. Stafford played wildly and panicked, and put a stamp on another miserable game with a fourth-quarter duck interception "complete" to Patriots CB Logan Ryan. Although Stafford has been a major 2014 disappointment, he has a favorable enough schedule to finish strong, facing the Bears twice, the Buccaneers, and the Vikings in the final month of the fantasy football season. He'll be a borderline QB1, albeit with top-shelf QB1 upside on Thanksgiving against Chicago. Rotoworld.com

    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

    Advice: Sanchez was not particularly sharp, making a fistful of ill-advised throws -- two of which were picked off. But in this Chip Kelly (god of offense) scheme, it doesn't matter much. Just like Nick Foles, the sheer number of plays combined with a unique ability to get receivers open leads to big-time box scores. Sanchez has now started three games as an Eagle and produced three 300-yard days to go with five touchdowns and four interceptions during those starts.

    Advice: He absorbed four sacks for a total loss of 32 yards. Coming off the bye, the Jaguars' offense was horrible, lacking zero creativity and taking no shots downfield. Bortles had a couple passes batted at the line and was picked off by Vontae Davis on his first throw of the game. The pass was well behind Marcedes Lewis. Bortles isn't even an option in two-quarterback leagues. Hopefully for the Jaguars' sake, he'll take a step or two forward over the final five games. The Giants are up next for the Jags.

    Brian Hoyer completed 23-of-40 passes for 322 yards, zero touchdowns and three interceptions in Cleveland's 26-24, Week 12 win over the Falcons.

    Advice: Put simply, Hoyer was lucky to escape this one with a win. Hoyer niftily engineered the Browns' game-winning field goal drive, but may not have gotten the chance if not for disastrously-bad clock management from Atlanta's Mike Smith. With the game in fourth-quarter crunch time, Hoyer made two of the worst throws you'll ever see. His pick on 1st-and-goal with 4:59 remaining was arguably the worst decision by any quarterback in 2014. Rolling right on a busted play action, Hoyer back pedaled and threw a jump ball to Josh Gordon off his back foot. It was easily picked by Desmond Trufant. Hoyer made use of his returning star Gordon, but had multiple miscommunications with him, and at least 4-5 terrible targets. Hoyer won't be a recommended QB2 for next week's trip to Buffalo.

  • Report: RG3 will be on short leash against SF
    Sources tell ESPN's Chris Mortensen that Robert Griffin III will be on a short leash in Sunday's Week 12 game at San Francisco.

    Advice: The Redskins dysfunction continues. Taking over as "Raiders East," they're now leaking that they could yank RG3 in favor of Colt McCoy -- either during Sunday's game or ahead of Week 13. Head coach Jay Gruden sharply criticized Griffin's fundamentals this week and even said the 2012 No. 2 overall pick has been "coddled." The Redskins, 0-2 since RG3 returned from a dislocated ankle, are 9.5-point underdogs Sunday. There's a disconnect between Gruden, who clearly wants a new franchise quarterback, and the front office.

    Advice: It's been hot at Redskins headquarters since RGIII threw his teammates under the bus after last week's home loss to Tampa Bay. Gruden fired back at his quarterback, saying RGIII needs to worry about himself. Coach also said the "clock's ticking" for RGIII and he's "auditioned long enough." Colt McCoy is a good bet to see more action before the end of the season. The higher-ups in D.C. backing the coach is a change from 2013 when RGIII was the club's golden boy who could do no wrong.

    Based on conversations with the Redskins' old coaching staff, ESPN's Steve Young stated that he knows Robert Griffin III "doesn't put the time in."

    Advice: "I’ve talked to his previous coaches, people I really trust and admire, that know quarterbacks," Young said. "He doesn’t put the time in." Current Redskins coach Jay Gruden all but confirmed Young's comments by recently stating Griffin has "fundamental flaws" and his footwork is "not even close" to where it needs to be. On Wednesday, Gruden continued to dance around the topic and paint a rose-colored picture. "He could do more probably," Gruden acknowledged, "[but] he studies himself and he comes back with ideas the following day. Whether he's here or not, there's a lot of work you can do. ... I really think he works hard at it. He puts his work in." Dan Snyder will probably have to decide between RG3 and Gruden this offseason. Rotoworld.com

    Zach Mettenberger completed 15-of-24 passes for 263 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Titans' 27-24, Week 11 loss to the Steelers on Monday night.

    Advice: Mettenberger has a long delivery with cement blocks for feet. He needs plenty of time to load up and release the ball, but the Titans’ offensive line gave him enough time against a defense that was minus Troy Polamalu, Ryan Shazier, Ike Taylor, and Steve McLendon. Despite throwing a pick-six to William Gay on his first pass, Mettenberger picked on Gay all night, hooking up with Nate Washington for an 80-yard touchdown and Justin Hunter for a 36-yard gain behind Gay. He dialed up short passes to Kendall Wright for chunk gains, utilizing Wright’s post-catch ability. It was easily Mettenberger’s best start of the season, but he has a long way to go in his development and won’t have the luxury of facing the Steelers every week. He’s not even a recommended option in two-QB leagues. The Eagles are up next for the Titans. Rotoworld.com

Gruden's comments run in direct opposition to Griffin's, who largely placed the blame for his dismal performance on his teammates. Gruden took umbrage with those comments.

    Mark Sanchez completed 26-of-44 passes for 346 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's Week 11 loss at Green Bay.

    Advice: Sanchez was far, far worse than these numbers looked. Going into a very difficult spot in a frigid Lambeau Field, he got pick-sixed, botched an exchange with LeSean McCoy, lost a high snap and overthrew open receivers. The Eagles were down 30-6 at halftime and 39-6 midway through the third quarter. Then Sanchez got into garbage-time mode, finding his favorite target Jordan Matthews repeatedly and piling up nearly all of his numbers. Despite the shaky performance, we'd bet strongly on Sanchez bouncing back in a big way at home against the Titans in Week 12. It's an ideal spot. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Stafford also committed a fumble, but the Lions recovered. Stafford has historically struggled in the desert, and today wasn't any different. He had little time to throw, which was a bad combination with Arizona's sticky coverage of Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate. Stafford's pick was an ill-advised deep ball to Megatron. Stafford was expected to take off with the return of his No. 1 receiver, but has instead been shaky through two tough matchups.

    Advice: Stanton started out white hot, capping off Arizona's first two drives with touchdown passes to Michael Floyd. He quickly cooled, however, tossing two awful picks while generally resembling division counterpart Austin Davis. Even Stanton's first score was a lollipop jump ball that could have been picked off. He was lucky to escape with only two turnovers. Stanton is fearless, and has weapons galore, but is a limited passer with come-and-go accuracy.

Hoyer's accuracy has been an issue all season, and continued to be against the Texans, missing seemingly countless throws at the short and intermediate range. You read that right -- Hoyer had a whopping 50 pass attempts -- and the Browns won't want to play that way moving forward.

    Ryan Mallett completed 20-of-30 passes for 211 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in the Texans' Week 11 win over the Browns.

    Advice: He didn't take a single sack. The Texans "protected" Mallett with a season-high 54 rushing attempts, and he should have been picked off by Browns OLB Paul Kruger in the second quarter, but Kruger flat-out dropped it. Several of Mallett's throws were off target early, but otherwise he showed complete command of Bill O'Brien's offense and restored an intermediate and deep-ball element to a Texans passing attack that lacked it with Ryan Fitzpatrick at the controls. We're hesitant to deem Mallett anything more than a lower-end two-quarterback-league option entering Week 12 against the Bengals. He does deserve credit for a solid NFL starting debut. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Kaepernick was not sharp once again. His best throw was a strike down the middle of the field to Michael Crabtree, who did the rest by out-running the defense for a 48-yard touchdown. Other than that, Kaep dinked, dunked and failed to find a lot of room with his legs. It was a game-managing kind of performance and his fourth straight game with just one touchdown.

Cutler's third touchdown was good to Marshall, again, from four yards out in the final frame.

    Advice: The 4-6 Falcons are laughably now in first place in the NFC South.

    Advice: Griffin threw interceptions on the first two drives, including a pick-six to Bucs CB Jonathan Banks. The interceptions both came on deflections, but Griffin missed open throws to DeSean Jackson downfield and wasn't accurate in the short pass game. His touchdown came on a 30-yard screen pass to Roy Helu at the end of the first half. Griffin added six carries for 41 yards and continued to look good as a runner.

    Advice: The Rams thoroughly and surprisingly dominated this one from start to finish. They sacked Manning twice, and pummeled him into the turf a handful of times in total, with Robert Quinn whipping LT Ryan Clady on a consistent basis. The Rams were also credited with 12 pass breakups, as they were swarming the ball. The defensive backs were hunting receivers, drilling them at every opportunity, and Emmanuel Sanders was knocked out of the game with a concussion. Julius Thomas exited in the first quarter with an ankle injury, so Manning only had Demaryius Thomas and C.J. Anderson to throw to for much of the day. Manning should be fine for Week 12 against Miami, but he needs one of Julius or Sanders to get healthy. The seven points were the fewest of the Peyton Manning era in Denver. Rotoworld.com

  • Bridgewater struggles mightily in Week 11
    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

  • Report: Texans, Titans interested in Hoyer
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Texans and Titans would have interest in Brian Hoyer if he reached the free agent market in 2015.

    Advice: Hoyer is collecting just $1 million in the final year of a cheap contract he signed in May of 2013. Per Schefter, "Hoyer trusts (Texans coach Bill) O'Brien as much as any coach in the league" after their time together in New England, and Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt worked with Hoyer for a brief spell in Arizona. Hoyer would surely have suitors if he hit the open market, but it seems unlikely that the Browns would let him leave. Rotoworld.com

  • Peyton Manning wants to 'hold all records'
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Broncos "expect" and are "planning" on Peyton Manning playing "at least" one more season.

    Advice: Per RapSheet, Manning wants to "hold all records" before he retires. He needs another season to set the all-time quarterback marks for wins and passing yards. Brock Osweiler's frustration will continue. Rapoport leaves the door open for Manning to "walk into the sunset" if the Broncos win the Super Bowl, but we're not buying it. Peyton loves his stats. If Denver wins SB49, it might actually give Manning more incentive to play another year. Rotoworld.com

  • Browns likely to let contract-year Hoyer walk?
    ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi believes the Browns are more likely to let contract-year QB Brian Hoyer walk in free agency than re-sign him.

    Advice: Ace beat writer Grossi is simply reading between the lines. But he points out that GM Ray Farmer has yet to give Hoyer a ringing endorsement as the Browns' quarterback, while Grossi gets the sense the team "brass" are very confident Johnny Manziel will be able to make every play Hoyer makes now, plus more, after sitting and learning for one season. If Hoyer "leads" the Browns to a division title and playoff berth, some team is going to shell out major cash for him. The Browns will have a tough decision, but money would give Farmer a reason to wave goodbye. Rotoworld.com

  • Tannehill throws for two scores vs. Buffalo
    Ryan Tannehill completed 26-of-34 passes for 240 yards and two touchdowns in Miami's 22-9, Week 11 win over the Bills.

    Advice: He added four rushes for 17 yards, and also lost a fumble. Tannehill took a few bad sacks, holding onto the ball for too long, but was otherwise efficient as the Dolphins slowly squeezed the life out of the Bills. As usual, Tannehill displayed disastrous accuracy the few times OC Bill Lazor tried to go deep, but the missed throws didn't result in any turnovers or other cataclysms. Tannehill now has 10 days to rest up for the Dolphins' trip to Denver. The point outlook in that one will have Tannehill on the streaming radar, though the Broncos' defense is formidable.

  • 'Fins 'cautiously optimistic' on Tannehill
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Dolphins are "cautiously optimistic" Ryan Tannehill is their franchise quarterback.

    Advice: However, Rapsheet reports "Dolphins officials" are not yet ready to "declare Tannehill is the quarterback of the future." Tannehill had the best stretch of his career in Weeks 4-9, but it came against a soft schedule. He struggled against the Lions' elite defense in Week 10. It will almost feel like Tannehill is back to square one if he has a grim showing against the Bills' stout defense on Thursday Night Football. Rotoworld.com

  • Robert Griffin III practicing in full
    Robert Griffin III (ankle) is practicing in full ahead of Week 11.

    Advice: Griffin looked near 100 percent prior to the bye, executing read-options and bootlegs with ease. Now he's had two weeks to get ready for a home game against a Bucs secondary that ranks near the bottom in nearly every statistical category. Streamers won't be able to do much better than RG3 this week. Rotoworld.com
