  • Gruden hints RGIII has little room for error
    Speaking Monday, Redskins coach Jay Gruden hinted Robert Griffin III will be on a very short leash against the Colts.

    Advice: "Well, we want to beat Indianapolis," was Gruden's response when asked how long RGIII will be allowed to settle in. "We want to win every game. And I have to put the people in there who (are) gonna help us win those games." Gruden went on in the same vein. It's crystal clear RGIII is now at weekly risk of in-game benchings. He's barely even a viable QB2. Rotoworld.com

  • Isaiah Crowell listed as starter
    Isaiah Crowell is listed as the starter on the Browns' updated depth chart.

    Advice: The Browns' starting running back is a fluid, week-to-week situation. But logic suggests Crowell will get the nod again against the Bills in Week 13 even though he was out-touched by Terrance West 15-12 in Week 12. Crowell is averaging 5.73 YPC overt he last two games while West is at 3.89. The highly talented "Crow" is a RB2 even in tough matchups. Rotoworld.com

He practiced on Friday and is expected to practice this week before suiting up against the Bills. With Josh Gordon back to clear out the middle of the field, Cameron is trending up at the razor-thin tight end position. He needs to be scooped up off waivers if he was dropped in your league.

  • Kenny Stills played on 67.5% of snaps
    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

    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. Stills will be a solid WR3 in Pittsburgh against the Steelers in Week 13. Rotoworld.com

    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: Speaking Monday, coach Jay Gruden said he had "every intent" to start RGIII against the Colts. RGIII was positively dreadful in Sunday's loss to the 49ers, but received little help from his teammates, particularly his offensive line. Nevertheless, 11 completions for 106 yards is not acceptable at the NFL level, and Griffin will be at risk of in-game benchings for the rest of the season. Even in a potentially high-scoring game with the Colts, RGIII will be a high-risk QB2. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Beckham made a highlight one-handed 43-yard touchdown over Cowboys CB Brandon Carr in the second quarter. He easily won one-on-one matchups, and was able to get open against double teams. 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. Beckham will be a top-ten receiver play in Week 13 and has a favorable rest-of-season schedule with games against Jacksonville, Tennessee, and Washington. 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

  • Isaiah Crowell eats for two TDs vs. Falcons
    Isaiah Crowell rushed 12 times for 88 yards and two touchdowns in Cleveland's Week 12 win over the Falcons.

    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

    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: 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.

    Jordan Cameron remains in the league's concussion protocol and will not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Cameron appears to be in doubt for Week 12 against the Falcons, though he could be cleared any day. Jim Dray and Gary Barnidge continue to fill in at tight end. At this point, it's a waiting game. Cameron's long-term health is a concern. Rotoworld.com

  • 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.

  • Julius Thomas (ankle) not in a walking boot
    Julius Thomas (ankle) was not in a walking boot Monday and was not walking with a limp.

    Advice: This confirms that Thomas does not have any serious kind of sprain. He was also spotted slipping a basketball shoe onto his nicked up wheel, a great sign that there's no swelling. Although Thomas remains questionable for Week 12 against the Dolphins, he's certainly not ruled out and truly appears day to day. Jacob Tamme is the weak handcuff for owners seeking insurance.

  • Julius Thomas (ankle) questionable for Wk 12
    The Denver Post confirms that Julius Thomas' ankle injury is "not as bad as initially feared," but believes it "might be difficult" for him to suit up in Week 12.

    Advice: Both local and national outlets are now reporting that Thomas has avoided serious injury, but considering his history of ankle issues, we agree with the assessment that he's questionable — at best — for Week 12. Thomas almost certainly won't practice on Wednesday, and it might be difficult to gauge his status before Friday. Owners need to have a back-up plan at the ready. Rotoworld.com

  • Redskins sticking with Robert Griffin III
    The Redskins aren't considering benching Robert Griffin III.

    Advice: However, coach Jay Gruden was fairly blunt with his assessment of RGIII in Sunday's ugly loss, saying he displayed some "fundamental flaws," and that his footwork was "not even close" to where it needs to be. 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. "Robert needs to worry about himself, Gruden said. "I'll worry about everybody else." Griffin is not playing well — and is clearly on his coach's nerves — but remains miles ahead of Colt McCoy and Kirk Cousins. Rotoworld.com

  • Broncos calling Julius Thomas 'day to day'
    ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports the Broncos consider Julius Thomas (ankle) "day to day."

    Advice: Per Mort, the Broncos are not "overly concerned." It's obviously encouraging news, but Thomas has a long history of ankle issues. He shouldn't be considered out of the woods for Week 12 just yet. Thomas' status will be updated no later than Wednesday, when the Broncos return to practice. Rotoworld.com

  • Kenny Stills getting a bump for Saints
    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

  • 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

  • Seferian-Jenkins a non-facor in win
    Austin Seferian-Jenkins had one catch for seven yards in Sunday's Week 11 win over the Redskins.

    Advice: Seferian-Jenkins was the No. 3 option in a game where Josh McCown completed just 15 passes. He hasn't been much of a factor outside out the red-zone this season. Seferian-Jenkins will remain a touchdown-dependent TE2 in Week 12. Rotoworld.com

  • Isaiah Crowell takes over as CLE feature back
    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. He will be a flex play with upside when Cleveland takes on Atlanta in Week 12. Rotoworld.com

  • Kenny Stills goes 4/32/1 versus Bengals
    Kenny Stills caught 4-of-4 targets for 32 yards and a touchdown in New Orleans' Week 11 loss to the Bengals.

    Advice: Stills was a bright spot for the Saints this afternoon, hauling in their lone score. He showed good awareness around the goal line, taking a short catch around the edge and diving for the pylon. Stills now has at least four catches in four of his past five games. As far as WR4 dart throws go, he's got some upside. Rotoworld.com

  • Marques Colston catches four passes vs. CIN
    Marques Colston caught 4-of-8 targets for 56 yards in the Saints' Week 11 loss to the Bengals.

    Advice: Colston made one really strong catch, but also committed a third-down drop. His best play of the day was breaking up a certain Drew Brees interception. The yards were Colston's most since Week 7. Colston has a plus Week 12 matchup in the Ravens' ailing secondary, but he's not a viable WR3. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Marshall goes 7-90-2 against Vikings
    Brandon Marshall secured 7-of-10 targets for 90 yards and two touchdowns in the Bears' Week 11 win over the Vikings.

    Advice: Marshall shook off his second ankle injury of the season for a dominant performance in which the Bears picked apart Vikings LCB Josh Robinson. 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. Marshall now has 15 catches for 202 yards and three TDs over his last three games. Rotoworld.com

  • Odell Beckham continues to impress
    Odell Beckham caught six passes for 93 yards in Sunday's Week 11 loss to the 49ers.

    Advice: After a very quiet first half, Beckham came alive impressively. The highlight was a leaping jump-ball catch along the sideline for a 37-yard gain, but he also went over the middle fearlessly and turned corners around with his route-running ability. 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

  • RGIII disapoints against Bucs
    Robert Griffin III completed 23-of-32 passes for 207 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in Sunday's Week 11 loss to the Bucs.

    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. It's a disappointing performance in a matchup with a Bucs secondary playing without starting CB Alterraun Verner. Griffin will be just a QB2 option in Week 12 against the 49ers. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Browns to start Isaiah Crowell at RB
    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

    Advice: The Browns aren't giving up hope on Cameron, who has suffered three concussions since the 2012 season. Schefter admitted the situation is "unpredictable," but at least there's a little optimism here. The Browns know for sure that they're getting Josh Gordon back Week 12. Rotoworld.com
