  • Terrance Williams (finger) fine for Thursday
    Terrance Williams (broken fingertip) was "limited" in Tuesday's practice, but is expected to be active for Thursday's game against the Eagles.

    Advice: Williams will wear a splint for the Cowboys' annual Thanksgiving classic. Williams got off to a scorching-hot start this season, but has just 12 total catches over his past six games. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Toon has three-catch night vs. Ravens
    Saints WR Nick Toon played 44-of-74 snaps in Monday's loss to the Ravens, catching 3-of-5 targets for 42 yards.

    Advice: Each of the catches, yards and targets were the most of Toon's thus far dismal three-year career. He had previously never caught more than one pass in a game. The New Orleans Times-Picayune expects Toon to maintain a role for however long Robert Meachem (ankle) is sidelined. It's nice to see Toon finally getting some regular-season run, but he's highly unlikely to come into 2014 fantasy value. Rotoworld.com

  • Cooper bizarrely ties snaps to Maclin deal
    Speaking Monday, Riley Cooper blamed his decreased snaps on walk-year WR Jeremy Maclin's contract situation.

    Advice: "Maclin's trying to get a contract, so he's probably not going to try and come out of the game," Cooper said. Maclin was not amused, responding "that was not a very smart thing for Coop to say." Cooper later claimed he was kidding, and tried to make amends. "Maclin, I guess, is a lot better player than me, so he doesnÂ’t have to sub. I guess I should have said that yesterday." Maclin has dominated this season, while Cooper has wheezed to a 39/425/1 line. Rotoworld.com

    Kenny Stills played on 50-of-74 snaps (67.5 percent) in Monday night's loss to the Ravens.

    Advice: In the first game since Brandin Cooks was lost for the season, Stills set career-highs in both catches (8) and targets (9). So even though his snap count didn't rise dramatically, his usage was the key note. As expected, Stills was no longer merely asked to run vertical clear-out routes -- instead getting high-percentage looks from Drew Brees. Given this new role, his extremely efficient skill set and a cupcake rest-of-season schedule, Stills is an excellent WR3 prospect. Rotoworld.com

  • Odell Beckham draws praise from Eli
    Eli Manning raved Monday about Odell Beckham's route-running ability.

    Advice: Beckham's calling card coming out of LSU was his pro-style routes and ability to separate. "He comes out of his breaks very sharply. He doesn't drift," Manning said. "You're able to see right when he's making that cut and he's coming out of his breaks very smoothly." Beckham can get open at will at the intermediate level and put his freakishly big hands (bigger than 6-foot-5 Calvin Johnson's) on display with the catch heard round the world Sunday night. Over the last four games, Eli's No. 1 WR is averaging 7.7 catches for 125.7 yards with two touchdowns. Rotoworld.com

He later beat Lardarius Webb on a double-move before getting taken down in the red zone again. Morgan is simply a situational deep threat. Rotoworld.com

    Marques Colston caught four passes for 82 yards and one touchdown in the Saints' Week 12 loss to the Ravens.

    Advice: Colston reeled in all four of his targets and did most of his damage in the first half. He ran down the left seam right before halftime to catch a 26-yard touchdown behind Matt Elam and in front of Terrence Brooks. Brooks should have picked the ball off or at least batted it down. Colston finished with the fifth-most targets on the team Monday night, suggesting he may not be as big of a beneficiary as Kenny Stills and Jimmy Graham following Brandin Cooks' season-ending thumb injury. Colston is a WR3/4. Rotoworld.com

    Steve Smith Sr. caught four passes for 89 yards and one touchdown in the Ravens' Week 12 win over the Saints.

    Advice: Smith Sr. and Torrey Smith each led the Ravens with six targets. Steve's 89 yards were his most since Week 6, while it was also his first end-zone visit since that same game. It was a predictable coming out party for Steve on national television against a familiar foe. He got into several dust-ups after the whistle, most notably with Kenny Vaccaro that led to both teams getting tangled up on the Ravens' sideline. Smith Sr. will be a WR3 at home against the Chargers in Week 13. He greatly benefitted from the Week 11 bye. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Stills was targeted nine times, mostly on short routes allowing him to try and use his after-the-catch skills. The Ravens did a good job on the outside of keeping Stills in front of them. His big play was a 33-yard catch over the top of CB Danny Gorrer, as Stills wrestled the ball away from Gorrer while falling to the ground.

He made a nice adjustment on a back-shoulder throw for a seven-yard touchdown, and also had a one-handed catch in the second quarter. Woods isn't worth targeting on waivers despite the big game.

    Advice: Floyd was targeted twice in Seattle, catching zero passes. Truth be told, there probably wasn't much Arians could have done to get Floyd more looks against the Seahawks' elite secondary with Drew Stanton at quarterback, but it's encouraging he's at least acknowledged the fact that Floyd should be more involved. Arians had previously been ambivalent about increasing Floyd's targets. Regardless of Arians' intentions, Floyd has been reduced to boom-or-bust WR4 status with Stanton replacing Carson Palmer.

    Advice: The Vikings split their safeties to cloud the Packers' wideouts, a move that limited Nelson and Cobb to a combined 12-126-0. "What we have done best is get the ball to Jordy and Randall," Rodgers said. "They have had big statistical seasons so they tried to take them out of the game." Of course, that allowed Eddie Lacy to run through soft boxes for 25-125-1. Nelson and Cobb will see more 1-on-1 coverage in Week 13, but it will be against Darrelle Revis and the Patriots.

So Moncrief's count was skewed a bit by Hilton taking it easy (presumably because he was operating on no sleep after the birth of his daughter), but it's still notable that the rookie is eating into the washed-up Nicks' time.

    Making his 2014 debut, Josh Gordon caught 8-of-16 targets for 120 yards in Cleveland's Week 12 win over the Falcons.

    Advice: Despite much pre-game speculation to the contrary, Gordon wasn't on any sort of a pitch count, playing essentially every down. He was targeted on a whopping 40 percent of the Browns' pass plays. His 16 looks were twice as many as No. 2 Miles Austin's eight. It was music to fantasy owners' ears, but Brian Hoyer often appeared to be forcing the ball to his returning No. 1 weapon, making a number of disastrous decisions on plays where they perhaps weren't on the same page. Hoyer also flat missed Gordon on at least 3-4 occasions. Gordon could have had a much-bigger game. Either way, he's established without a doubt that he'll be an elite WR1 down the stretch as the Browns try to clinch their first playoff berth since 2002. Rotoworld.com

So although the original plan was 20-30 snaps, we could see last year's leading receiver on the field for way more than that. "We have the full gamut in store for him," Glazer relayed from Pettine. They'll check in with Gordon at halftime and see how he feels. "As long as he can deal with the pounding, we are going to run him and run him and run him."

    Advice: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport adds Gordon "will either start or be in quickly" with the Browns rotating him "in and out," yet they're open to playing Gordon more "if he's feeling good." Gordon can do damage on 20-30 snaps, though we might take the over on this. Browns-Falcons could be a shootout, but Cleveland could try and slow the pace by leaning on its run game. It's a volatile situation. Gordon is a must-start in season-long leagues, but is more of a tournament than cash play in DFS. Rotoworld.com

Giants DC Perry Fewell mentions CB Chykie Brown, who was plucked off waivers from the Ravens, as a candidate to see extended snaps vs. Bryant on Sunday night.

  • Pettine: Gordon ahead of where we expected
    Speaking Thursday, coach Mike Pettine said Josh Gordon is "maybe little ahead of where we expected."

    Advice: Gordon practiced Wednesday for the first time since August and it went well, with Brian Hoyer targeting him tons. Gordon's "pitch count" will be raised on Thursday, meaning the Browns will give him more reps ahead of Sunday's game against the Falcons. Pettine's pleasure with where Gordon is at physically and mentally right now bodes well for his chances of seeing something around 75-85 percent of the snaps in his 2014 debut. Although we wouldn't expect a massive game given the circumstances, he's a must-start in season-long formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Browns say Josh Gordon will be on pitch count
    Coach Mike Pettine said Wednesday that Josh Gordon will be on a "pitch count" this week.

    Advice: It's a bit unclear if Pettine was referring to practices or Sunday's game against the Falcons. What is clear is that he's trying to temper expectations. "There needs to be a progression. The trap to fall into is, 'Hey, he's back and let's just go ahead and throw him out there for a bunch of plays.' There's certainly danger inherent in doing that," said Pettine, who also talked to Ross Tucker about research the Browns have done on higher injury rates after long layoffs. We're not expecting Gordon to play 100 percent of the snaps Sunday after three months off, but even a limited Gordon is a must-play in season-long formats. He's a legit All-Pro talent for a playoff-contending team desperately in need of weaponry. Rotoworld.com

  • Snow yet again prevents Bills from practicing
    Due to the snow in Buffalo, the Bills will not practice again Thursday.

    Advice: The Buffalo area got hit with even more snow overnight and a travel ban in the area remains in effect. At this point, it's difficult to see the Week 12 game at the Ralph against the Jets going down Sunday. Not only are the Bills at a massive disadvantage having not practiced yet this week, but even New York governor Andrew Cuomo is calling a Sunday game "impractical" due to public safety concerns. The NFL's deadline for a decision on the game is Friday. We'd be surprised if it wasn't played on Monday or Tuesday night. Rotoworld.com

Gordon has not been permitted to practice since training camp and is taking contact this week for the first time in 80 days. Of course, we're talking about an All-Pro talent on a team that is both desperate for offensive weaponry and clawing for a playoff berth. Even if Gordon is a bit limited in terms of snap count and volume, he's a must-play in season-long formats right away. Rotoworld.com

  • Josh Gordon back, ready to 'tear this league up'
    Josh Gordon told ex-Browns WR Nate Burleson that he plans to "tear this league up" upon his return from a 10-game suspension.

    Advice: Whooo boy! Via Burleson, Gordon recently said, "I'm going to lose 10-15 pounds. When I come back, I'm going to tear this league up." Observers at Browns practice Wednesday said Gordon looked sharp running routes and in shape during the 15 or so minutes open to the media. The Browns have alluded to easing Gordon back into the picture, but Falcons coach Mike Smith isn't buying it. And neither are we. Cleveland is in the middle of a dogfight for a playoff spot. Gordon is an otherworldly talent. Expect him to be plugged in as the X receiver and start ripping cornerbacks to shreds. We're on board with firing Gordon up as an immediate WR1. Rotoworld.com

    The Jets and Bills Week 12 game at Ralph Wilson Stadium is still scheduled for 1 PM ET Sunday despite seven feet of snow expected in Buffalo.

    Advice: Yes, that's SEVEN FEET. Buffalo has already gotten upwards of four feet of white powder, and another 1.5 to 3 feet are expected overnight Wednesday. The Bills aren't able to practice Wednesday, as the coaches and players can't all make it to the facility. The Ralph Wilson Stadium crew has removed over 220,000 tons of snow from the playing surface. We'd think the NFL will need to decide the game's status by Thursday afternoon. Rotoworld.com

    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution expects Falcons CB Desmond Trufant to shadow Josh Gordon in Week 12.

    Advice: It looks like a tough matchup on paper for Gordon. Trufant (6-foot, 190) is Pro Football Focus' No. 9 cover corner on the season, but he's been lucky to miss A.J. Green and Calvin Johnson, who were hurt, in Weeks 2 and 8, respectively. Trufant has fared relatively well against Mike Evans, Vincent Jackson, and Alshon Jeffery, however. We still like Gordon as a must-start WR1 versus Atlanta. Rotoworld.com

  • Revis to cover Tate with Browner on Megatron?
    The Boston Herald's Jeff Howe thinks it would be smart of the Patriots to have Brandon Browner cover Calvin Johnson and Darrelle Revis man Golden Tate in Week 12.

    Advice: That's how we see it, as well. Stiff, upright Browner trying to cover quick, shifty Tate has disaster written all over it. Look for the Patriots to put Browner on Megatron, and roll a safety to his side to "double" Johnson. Fire Johnson up as a locked-in WR1, with Tate being downgraded to WR3 range in this road date.

  • Colston expected to benefit from Cooks' loss
    ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett expects Marques Colston to be the biggest beneficiary from Brandin Cooks' season-ending thumb injury.

    Advice: Triplett expects all three of Jimmy Graham, Colston, and Kenny Stills to see more targets, but he "stubbornly" admits Colston may see the biggest boost. We tend to agree. Cooks worked close to the line of scrimmage. Colston, as the slot receiver, does the same, whereas Stills is more of a clear-out deep threat. Colston saw a four-week-high eight targets last week and produced his most receiving yards (56) in that same span. We're not expecting a resurgence from him, but a return to WR3 status is doable.

    ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett expects the Saints to rely more on Kenny Stills and Marques Colston with Brandin Cooks (thumb) out 2-4 weeks.

    Advice: Stills was quietly one of the league's more impressive rookies last year. He hasn't been overly productive this year as he's executed the Devery Henderson/Robert Meachem vertical role, but he has shown well lately with 21 catches and two touchdowns over his last five games. Now ticketed for more high-percentage routes that Cooks left behind, Stills is a borderline WR3. Colston and Jimmy Graham also get ticks up. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Megatron and Patrick Peterson mostly played to a draw, though Johnson could have had a bigger day if not for some inaccurate throws by Matthew Stafford. Peterson by no means swallowed up the world's best receiver. Now Johnson must contend with Darrelle Revis in Week 12, as the Lions are venturing to New England.

  • 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

    Michael Floyd caught 2-of-5 targets for 54 yards and two touchdowns in Arizona's Week 11 win over the Lions.

    Advice: The scores were Floyd's first since Week 7, and capped off each of Arizona's first two drives. For the first, he pulled down a 42-yard jump ball in the end zone. For the second, he simply beat Darius Slay to the spot. It was a welcome explosion for frustrated fantasy owners, but a possible red herring, as Floyd went the final 36 minutes of the game without a catch. Floyd is an explosive playmaker, but he's going to remain a boom-or-bust WR3/4 going forward. He has a rough Week 12 matchup in the Seahawks on the road. Rotoworld.com

  • Jordan Matthews stays hot in loss to Packers
    Jordan Matthews caught five passes for 107 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's 53-20 Week 11 loss at Green Bay.

    Advice: Matthews was quiet early, with just two catches for 45 yards in the first half as the Packers took a 30-6 lead. Of course, that wasn't a bad thing as it led to an extended "garbage time" period. Matthews shined once again, getting open at will out of the slot and making very tough catches over the middle. His touchdown came on a bubble screen, a play he specialized in at Vanderbilt. It's very clear that he's the real deal from a physical standpoint and Mark Sanchez absolutely loves the rookie that he spent most of the offseason with as a second-teamer. Matthews will be on the WR2 radar for a tasty Week 12 home spot against the Titans. Rotoworld.com

Both Marshall and Alshon Jeffery caught TDs against Robinson in the 21-13 win. With Marshall proving his health on the field, he should be treated as a fantasy WR1 when the Bears take on a porous Buccaneers pass defense next.

Over the last three weeks, Beckham is averaging 7.0 catches for 119.0 yards. It's not a fluke and he'll be a solid WR2 against the Cowboys in Week 12. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Just about all of Randle's catches came on the same play -- a deep "in" route that the 49ers defense simply couldn't cover. Of course, Randle was targeted on two of Eli Manning's five interceptions and had repeated miscommunications with his quarterback once again. He also left the game for a stretch in the second half due to cramping. We wouldn't go chasing Randle as anything more than a weak WR3 against the Cowboys in Week 12. Rotoworld.com
