  • Kyle Rudolph gets up to 60 snaps
    Kyle Rudolph played on 61-of-69 snaps in Sunday's loss to the Packers.

    Advice: In his first game off sports hernia surgery in Week 11, Rudolph played on just 14 snaps and had no catches. The chains were taken off Sunday, as he went 3-50-0 on five targets and got back to a near every-down role. Given the thin state of the tight end position and Rudolph's red-zone chops, he's a TE1 candidate against the Panthers in Week 13. Rotoworld.com

  • WR Charles Johnson played on 67-of-69 snaps
    Vikings WR Charles Johnson played on 67-of-69 snaps in Sunday's loss to the Packers.

    Advice: Even with Greg Jennings (ribs) and Jarius Wright (hamstring) active, Johnson was a full-time player. It's an exciting revelation for a player we've long been tracking because he goes 6'2/217 and runs a 4.38. Over the last two weeks, Johnson has totaled 9-139-1 on a team-high 18 targets, emerging as the No. 1 receiver for Teddy Bridgewater. Johnson makes for an intriguing deeper-league streamer in a home game against the Panthers' weak corner corps in Week 13. Jennings is done, Patterson is far too raw and Wright is a sub-average player that's been passed on the depth chart. Rotoworld.com

  • Vikings tried to take away Jordy, Cobb
    Aaron Rodgers said the Vikings made a concerted effort to slow down Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb Sunday.

    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.

    Advice: The 6-foot-5 Evans beat 5-foot-11 Bears corner Kyle Fuller for his latest score, his eighth of the season and sixth in the last four weeks. With Josh McCown showing the utmost confidence in his rookie, Evans is bordering on WR1 status weekly now. He's also the top Dynasty wideout in perhaps the greatest rookie wideout class the NFL has ever seen. Rotoworld.com

    WRs coach Ricky Proehl said the Panthers have to "make sure we get" Kelvin Benjamin involved weekly.

    Advice: Benjamin has been far from perfect this year, catching just 52-of-98 targets while battling some drops and poor routes. But the Panthers have wisely stuck with him through the mistakes and have been rewarded with eight touchdowns. "You’ve got to get him touches, because he gets going," Proehl said. "Just like any great receiver, when you feed him he gets into the game." Clearly a focal point of the offense, Benjamin is an every-week fantasy starter heading into a Week 13 game at Minnesota.

  • Jason Witten in nice spot on Thanksgiving
    The Philadelphia Inquirer suggests the Eagles will have trouble covering Jason Witten in Thursday's game against the Cowboys.

    Advice: Witten does not typically create mismatches at this point in his career. But the Eagles, already without DeMeco Ryans (Achilles), lost Emmanuel Acho (groin) Sunday. Now they'll have to ride with incompetent Casey Matthews as a primary inside linebacker, with rookie Marcus Smith mixing in. Smith is a pass-rusher that was drafted as an outside linebacker. Witten's upside is capped by his limited athletic ability, but he has TE1 appeal Thursday. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Reggie Wayne led the way by playing on 71-of-76 snaps, followed by T.Y. Hilton's 59. 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. If we can ever get into a spot where we know Moncrief is going to get 60-70 percent of the snaps, he'll be a strong WR2/3 play. Rotoworld.com

    Tim Wright played on a season-high 61-of-81 snaps in Sunday's win over the Lions.

    Advice: There was no way to see this coming. Wright's previous season-high in snaps was 21 as the Patriots hadn't been utilizing a lot of "12" packages. Of course, if we knew Wright was going to be on the field so much he would have been an easy TE1 bet because of his wideout-esque skill set. The problem is that we don't know if the Patriots will take the same offensive approach against the Packers in Week 13, making Wright a high-risk, high-reward kind of streamer. Rotoworld.com

    Trent Richardson said he didn't start Sunday's game against the Jags because he was still under the weather.

    Advice: The Indy Star is buying this, suggesting that Richardson will start against the Redskins in Week 13. We're skeptical at best. T-Rich was clearly healthy enough to play as evidenced by his 13 touches on 42 snaps, but starter Boom Herron was predictably the more effective option -- turning his 17 touches and 33 snaps into 96 total yards. No matter who starts going forward, this backfield remains an even timeshare. We'd rather own Herron as simply the better player. Rotoworld.com

    Josh Gordon played on 54-of-78 snaps (69.2 percent) in Sunday's win at Atlanta.

    Advice: A pregame report from ESPN that Gordon would be limited to 20-30 snaps was simply wrong. He proved to the coaches during the week that he was in football shape despite a three-month layoff. "I told (coach Mike Pettine) I'd been working out nonstop every day, day in and day out. I think that just goes to show I wasn't just sitting around on my ass doing nothing," Gordon said. We'd expect him to get closer to 80-90 percent of the snaps in a Week 13 game at Buffalo.

He was left wide open on a 31-yard catch and run for his first score, and caught the game-winning touchdown with just over a minute in the fourth quarter.

He was the more effective back between the tackles, and could continue to see a bigger committee role. The Giants gave Williams goal-line work, but didn't use him in high-leverage situations.

Beckham was targeted a team-high 11 times, but briefly exited in the fourth quarter with a back injury. He's now posted 90-plus yards in four straight weeks and is averaging at least seven catches since entering the starting lineup.

He had two first-half touchdowns to Odell Beckham, and later hit a wide-open Adrien Robinson at the goal-line. Manning's pick was a bad overthrew to Preston Parker in the red-zone that allowed Dallas back in the game. He now has a 5:7 TD/INT ratio over his last three starts.

    Advice: This is the type of line fantasy owners expected from Morris last week against Tampa Bay. The Redskins played run-dominated offense on Sunday, attempting to limit Robert Griffin III's impact on the game. Morris was the beneficiary, consistently gashing San Francisco's normally stout defense on zone runs. Ultimately, "Alf" was one of the few Skins offensive players who showed up.

    Advice: He wasn't targeted in the passing game. As expected, Crowell started over Terrance West, but was actually out-touched by West 15-12. Crowell out-gained him 88-71, however, and looked like a man deserving of his No. 1 status. Crowell was electrifying on both his TDs, planting his foot for a one-cut, 11-yard run on his first score. For the second, he completely reversed fields two separate times, eluding tackles and displaying a low-center of gravity en route to a 26-yard TD. His raw talent was plain as day. Crowell and West will continue to split the rock for a run-heavy team, but Crowell is the clear No. 1 option, and a weekly upside RB2 for fantasy players. Rotoworld.com

However, Richardson was the one who got the goal-line carry in the third quarter for the one-yard touchdown, while Herron fumbled in the red zone earlier in the first half.

    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

    Advice: Gordon showed up to work this week in far better shape than the Browns expected and "really improved" as practices went on. 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.

    Advice: As beat reporter Tony Grossi notes, "we've seen this change before, however." For instance, Ben Tate was listed as the Browns' starter in Week 11. The Browns proceeded to start Crowell and utilize him as a full-on feature back, while Terrance West was the change-of-pace runner and Tate was almost strictly used on third downs. Crowell is the best Week 12 fantasy start in Cleveland's backfield, but there is still plenty of volatility with this situation. Keep in mind the Browns' offensive coordinator is Mike Shanahan's son.

    ESPN's Adam Schefter was informed by a league source that Josh Gordon will play 20-30 snaps in his Week 12 debut against the Falcons.

    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

    Browns activated Josh Gordon from exempt/commissioner permission list.

    Advice: LB Keith Pough was waived in a corresponding move. The Browns have hinted all week Gordon will be on a snap count Week 12, but his upside alone makes him a must start against the Falcons. He is Rotoworld's No. 8 wide receiver play this week. Rotoworld.com

    Kyle Rudolph (abdomen, groin) is listed as probable for Week 12.

    Advice: Rudolph played on just 14-of-47 snaps in his first game back from sports hernia surgery. He hasn't had any setbacks, and was able to practice in full this week. 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

    Trent Richardson (illness) is listed as probable for Week 12.

    Advice: Richardson practiced in full Friday for the second straight day. The Colts plan to get him more work on third downs with Ahmad Bradshaw out for the year. Richardson is a high-end RB2 against a Jacksonville defense that allows the seventh most fantasy points to running backs. Rotoworld.com

  • T-Rich expected to pick up 3rd-down duties
    The Indianapolis Star expects Trent Richardson to handle third-down duties with Ahmad Bradshaw (broken leg) done for the season.

    Advice: Bradshaw played 84 percent of the third-down snaps the first 11 weeks. That work now falls into Richardson's lap, which means more touches and opportunities for big plays. It's up to Richardson to make the most of it. Expect Richardson to flirt with 20 touches per game the final six weeks, giving him a high floor as an RB2 in one of the most explosive offenses in the league. Rotoworld.com

  • Dez Bryant to avoid shadow coverage from DRC
    The Giants don't plan to use Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie in shadow coverage on Dez Bryant.

    Advice: DRC has been unable to play every defensive snap in recent weeks because of an IT band injury that is affecting his back, leg, and hamstring. 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. Dez has a touchdown and/or 100-plus yards in eight of his last nine games. Rotoworld.com

  • 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

    Kyle Rudolph (abdomen, groin) is practicing in full for Week 12.

    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

    Advice: Pettine mentioned to Ross Tucker about research the Browns have done on higher injury rates after long layoffs. 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

  • Pettine defends Isaiah Crowell
    Browns coach Mike Pettine defended Isaiah Crowell's Week 11 lost fumble, crediting Texans ILB Brian Cushing with making a great play.

    Advice: The Browns appear to be increasingly committed to Crowell, sticking with him after the loose ball, and cutting Ben Tate. "I don't see him as having a fumbling problem," Pettine said. "I think he was trying to switch (hands with) the ball and got caught. I thought Cushing made a heck of a play. He hit right on top of it." The Cleveland Plain Dealer foresees the Browns using a "two-back rotation" of Crowell and Terrance West going forward. Crowell is the strongest fantasy option, at least for now. 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 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

  • Giants owner gives Manning vote of confidence
    Giants owner John Mara recently gave Eli Manning a vote of confidence.

    Advice: It's worth noting that Mara's comments came before Manning threw five picks in Sunday's loss to the 49ers. "We still think he's in his prime and still has a lot of good years left," Mara said optimistically. "It lifts the whole franchise when you have a quarterback who can play at that level." Fans and writers can often be far too quick to write off players, but Manning's TD:INT ratio is now 36:38 since the start of last season. He's posted a 6.9 YPA and 75.8 QB rating during the same timespan. Manning turns 34 in January, and 2015 is the final year of his contract. The Giants would be foolish not to at least consider a post-Manning future. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Murray has been able to sustain health despite averaging 28.0 touches per game through the first 10 weeks. The bye week certainly came at a good time for his body to heal up a bit and the Week 12 matchup is ideal. Murray and the Cowboys' dominant offensive line gets to face a Giants run defense that has been absolutely gashed by the run since MLB Jon Beason went down. Murray is the No. 1 RB play in fantasy this week. Rotoworld.com

  • Burden of running game now on Richardson
    The Indy Star says the "burden" of the running game is now going to fall on Trent Richardson.

    Advice: It's a scary thought for the Colts in the wake of Ahmad Bradshaw's fracture. Richardson has been among the least effective backs in the NFL over the last two seasons, averaging 3.12 YPC with five rushing touchdowns in 23 games as a Colt. The difference between T-Rich and Bradshaw was night and day. Already getting 15.2 touches per game, it's now conceivable that Richardson will get up around 20 going forward -- especially in clock-killing situations like the one we'll likely see in Week 12 when the Colts host the Jags. He's a volume-based RB2 with limited upside. 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: Jennings was a workhorse early and finished with 22 touches on a day there was no daylight to run to. However, late in the game with the Giants in a two-minute offense, Andre Williams was on the field. It's a situation Jennings thrives in, leading us to suspect his knee was acting up a bit. He should be fine for Week 12 against the Cowboys, but practice reports will be worth monitoring. Rotoworld.com

  • Pettine on RBs: We're not going to pick one
    When asked about his running back rotation following Sunday's loss to the Texans, coach Mike Pettine said, "We're not just going to pick one."

    Advice: In Week 9, Isaiah Crowell got zero carries while Terrance West led the way with 15. Week 10 saw West pile up 26 carries compared to 12 for Crowell and 10 for Ben Tate. On Sunday, Crowell surprisingly got the nod for 14 totes, seven more than West and Tate combined. "It's something we'll look at week to week," Pettine said. "When you go in a game-plan situation you look at what gives us the best chance to win." More often than not, Crowell is going to be the Browns' best option. Despite a Week 11 fumble (that he was not punished for), he'll be the best bet to carry the mail against the Falcons in Week 12. 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

    Taylor Gabriel secured 5-of-13 targets for 92 yards in the Browns' Week 11 loss to the Texans.

    Advice: Rookie GM Ray Farmer deserves a ton of credit for finding Gabriel out of Abilene Christian. He's given the Browns serious playmaking ability in the slot, complementing Andrew Hawkins. Both Hawkins and Gabriel will move down the totem pole when Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron return, however. Gordon will definitely play in Week 12 against Atlanta, while Cameron (concussion) is tentatively due back. Rotoworld.com

    Isaiah Crowell took over as the Browns' feature back in Sunday's Week 11 loss to the Texans, rushing 14 times for 61 yards and securing 2-of-4 targets for 30 additional yards.

    Advice: Perhaps most promisingly, the Browns stuck with Crowell after he lost a second-quarter fumble; ball security has been an issue for the promising rookie in the past. Crowell finished with 16 touches compared to Terrance West's five and Ben Tate's two. The Browns can revert to a "hot-hand" approach at any moment, but Crowell has all along been their best option in the backfield.

    Kelvin Benjamin caught nine passes for 109 yards and one touchdown in the Panthers' Week 11 loss to the Falcons.

    Advice: Benjamin was targeted a team-high 13 times, but continues to mix frustration with greatness. Benjamin was the culprit again this week on one of Cam Newton's interceptions, simply giving up on a slant route. But he later made a juggling catch for a 22-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.

Roy Helu led the Redskins in receiving this week, but had zero carries and didn't factor into his workload. Morris looks to be back on track after getting off to a slow start.

He almost had another touchdown late in the game as he was targeted on a crucial third-down goal-line fade that just barely fell incomplete.

On his first touchdown, he got past Redskins FS Ryan Clark from 36 yards out, and later took advantage of broken coverage for a 56-yard score.

    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.

Fantasy owners may want to see Rudolph actually play effectively on a game before firing him back up as a TE1 following this dud.

    Advice: As expected, Jennings was the no-doubt workhorse in his first game off an MCL sprain. He had nine touches at halftime compared to zero for Andre Williams. The sledding was really tough as the Giants offensive line got overwhelmed by Chris Borland and company, but Jennings looked to be running well. However, with the Giants in the two-minute drill late Andre Williams was on the field. It makes us fear there was some kind of aggravation for Jennings.

    Advice: Bad Eli face was out in full effect, even against a depleted 49ers secondary. He once again had repeated miscommunications with Rueben Randle, looking like he was throwing the game on a couple of the picks. So after a five-game streak that saw Manning throw just one pick, we're back to square one heading into a Week 12 home game against the Cowboys.

    ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi reports "it appears" the Browns will start Isaiah Crowell at running back against the Texans.

    Advice: It's something of a surprise move after the Browns benched Crowell for a faux-fumble in last week's win over Cincinnati. Perhaps the coaching staff watched the tape and felt bad about it, and this is the way they are compensating. We still fully expect a "hot-hand" approach in the Browns' backfield, but Crowell appears likely to get the first shot to establish it. He's a high-upside, but risky flex option. The same can be said for both Terrance West and Ben Tate. In other news, Cleveland's Week 11 inactives are WR Rodney Smith, DB Johnson Bademosi, CB Pierre Desir, RB Glenn Winston, OL Vinston Painter, TE Jordan Cameron, and LB Keith Pough. 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

  • Rashad Jennings to see heavy workload?
    ESPN Giants reporter Dan Graziano suspects Rashad Jennings will handle more than 20 touches in Sunday's game against the 49ers.

    Advice: Coach Tom Coughlin has suggested that Jennings won't carry a full load Sunday. That's also what he said before Andre Brown came off injury last year and piled up 30 carries in his first game active. With Andre Williams' limited skill set and third-down option Peyton Hillis on IR, Jennings should be in for a big workload if his knee holds up. He was averaging 20.4 touches per game before going down. 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

  • Rashad Jennings probable for Week 11
    Rashad Jennings (knee, probable) expressed confidence Friday that he will be ready for a full workload in his Week 11 return.

    Advice: "I'm back to myself," said Jennings, who sat out five weeks with an MCL sprain. "Obviously I can go as many [carries] as we need." Jennings was averaging 20.4 touches per game before going down. He's an RB2 against the 49ers. 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
