  • Cecil Shorts back at practice for Jags
    Cecil Shorts (flu) returned to practice Thursday.

    Advice: Shorts' case of the flu clearly isn't very severe. He'll be ready to rock against the Giants Sunday, but is difficult to trust as he comes off a 1-6-0 line at Indy last week. Blake Bortles' woes and the presence of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie are major obstacles. Rotoworld.com

We'll know more by Friday, but in the meantime owners can add Harry Douglas as a bit of insurance. Douglas (foot) returned to practice Thursday. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: On the heels of a wildly disappointing 1-6-0 Week 12 outing against the Colts, Shorts did not practice Wednesday. We'd expect him to be fine for Week 13, but he's a tough sell as a fantasy start against the Giants. Blake Bortles is regressing and Shorts could see plenty of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

    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

"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.

    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.

    Cecil Shorts caught one pass for six yards in the Jaguars' Week 12 loss to the Colts.

    Advice: Shorts didn't see a target until deep into the second half. One of our favorite Week 12 value plays, Shorts couldn't get anything going with Blake Bortles crumbling in the pocket and refusing to take any shots downfield. Shorts will be a WR4 against Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and the Giants in Week 13. Rotoworld.com

  • Riley Cooper continues to perform sub-average
    Riley Cooper caught three passes for 49 yards in Sunday's Week 12 win over the Titans.

    Advice: Cooper was at least partially to blame for Mark Sanchez's first interception as he ran a terrible route, didn't cross the defender's face on a slant and quit on the play. The only reason he continues to log heavy snaps is because he's a good blocker. Cooper, with one touchdown and one game over 60 yards all season, should have been on waivers long ago in fantasy formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon LaFell goes 9-98 against Lions
    Brandon LaFell secured 9-of-12 targets for 98 yards in the Patriots' Week 12 win over the Lions.

    Advice: LaFell was a consistent chain-mover against the Lions' DBs in this game, ripping off repeated first-down catches underneath the coverage. With 50-plus yards in six consecutive games, LaFell has shown enough consistency to be treated as an every-week fantasy WR3. The Patriots travel to Lambeau Field next. Rotoworld.com

  • Jordan Matthews leads team in receiving again
    Jordan Matthews caught six passes for 77 yards in Sunday's Week 12 win over the Titans.

    Advice: Matthews tied for the team lead in targets with eight and now has 25 in Mark Sanchez's three starts. He almost had a touchdown on a perfectly thrown deep slant at the goal-line, but Titans S Daimion Stafford made a nice play to break it up at the last second. Still, Matthews is here to stay as a very strong WR3 whose style fits perfectly with Sanchez, his buddy from offseason second-team workouts. Fire him up against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving.

    Brandon Marshall caught 3-of-5 targets for 32 yards Week 12 against the Buccaneers.

    Advice: Marshall made a couple early catches but saw his targets dry up as the Bears took the air out of the ball in the fourth quarter. Marshall escaped the game without any setbacks, and it appears his ankle is no longer an issue. He will be a borderline WR1 against the Lions on Thanksgiving day. Rotoworld.com

  • Calvin Johnson goes 4-58 against Patriots
    Calvin Johnson secured 4-of-10 targets for 58 yards in the Lions' Week 12 loss to New England.

    Advice: Megatron primarily squared off with Brandon Browner, while Darrelle Revis handled Golden Tate. Johnson's cause wasn't helped by Matthew Stafford's erratic accuracy, but Megatron contributed to Detroit's offensive disarray with a pair of drops. Expect Johnson to bounce back down the stretch, as the Lions have a string of cupcake matchups in their final four games of the fantasy season. They'll square off with the Bears on Thanksgiving next.

    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports "it would take a miracle" for Larry Fitzgerald (knee) to play Week 12 against the Seahawks.

    Advice: Fitzgerald didn't practice at all this week and appears to be on the wrong side of the questionable tag. He's battling a sprained MCL. If Fitzgerald sits, Michael Floyd and John Brown will start at receiver with Jaron Brown filling in as the No. 3. John Brown would make for an interesting play against a Seahawks defense that tends to get burned by smaller, faster receivers. 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.

    Advice: Despite becoming a starter playing on 77.1 percent of the snaps this season, Patterson has maddeningly taken a step back. He's doesn't have a full grasp of the new offense, doesn't run crisp routes and simply hasn't been open. It's resulted in 2.8 catches for 33.2 yards with one touchdown through 10 games.

    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
