  • 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

Lynch has been playing mostly dominant football, but on a short week against a tough run defense, he'll be a lower-end RB1 for Week 13. 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

    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: 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.

  • Gore goes 13-39 against Redskins
    Frank Gore managed 39 yards on 13 carries in the 49ers' Week 12 victory over the Redskins.

    Advice: The 49ers predictably had very little success running the ball on Washington's stout front. Gore contributed to San Francisco's turnover-filled day with a lost fumble in the fourth quarter. He was also "vultured" by Carlos Hyde on a fourth-quarter TD run, which proved the game winner. With a matchup against the Seahawks on deck, Gore will be a dicey bet as more than a low-expectations RB2/flex on Thanksgiving night. Gore is still a rock-solid all-around football player, but he's understandably lost a lot of "juice" as a runner during his age-31 season. He also wore down during last year's stretch run.

  • 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

    Marshawn Lynch rushed 15 times for 39 yards and caught three passes for 43 yards in Sunday's 19-3 win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Lynch missed two series in the first quarter after his troublesome back tightened up on him. He returned to a featured role, but didn't quite look like himself and was facing a strong-tackling Cardinals defense that was swarming. So Lynch owners should consider themselves lucky to come away with 82 total yards given the situation. We fully expect Beast Mode to play on Thanksgiving night, but it can't hurt to roster Robert Turbin right now. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Megatron primarily squared off with Brandon Browner, while Darrelle Revis handled Golden Tate.

    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.

    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

    Marshawn Lynch (back) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Lynch is over the calf issue that made him questionable last week. The Seahawks are getting him extended rest. Lynch isn't in danger of missing Sunday's game with the Cardinals. 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.

  • Reggie Bush says he'll be back for Week 12
    Reggie Bush (ankle) expects to return for Week 12.

    Advice: Bush said the week off helped his ankle. It's worth noting that Bush is habitually overly optimistic about his odds of suiting up, but it didn't seem like he was in for a long-term absence when he was shut down for Week 11. Bush should tentatively be expected to return as a FLEX option for Sunday's outdoor meeting with the Patriots, returning Theo Riddick to No. 3 duties. 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

  • Lynch doesn't know if he'll be back 2015
    Marshawn Lynch admitted he doesn't know if he'll be back with the Seahawks in 2015.

    Advice: The Seahawks can save $7 million of Lynch's $8.5 million cap hit by cutting him in the offseason. Lynch also turns 29 next April and ESPN's Chris Mortensen previously reported that the team has "grown tired" of his "ways." On the field, however, Lynch continues to perform at an All-Pro level, ranking fifth among running backs in yards after contact per attempt and averaging a hefty 4.59 YPC with nine touchdowns. "The Seahawks, their front office gets in the media; they talk a lot. I don't talk too much. I just play the game," he said. "If they have something going on, I don't know about it." Rotoworld.com

  • Calvin Johnson getting treatment on elbow
    Calvin Johnson was getting treatment on his elbow following Sunday's loss at Arizona.

    Advice: Johnson was in the training room for a while after getting held to 5-59-0. He said he wasn't concerned, but it's another bump for a player that has accumulated finger, knee and ankle injuries over the last couple years. Rotoworld.com

  • Calvin Johnson held to five catches vs. Birds
    Calvin Johnson caught 5-of-12 targets for 59 yards in Detroit's Week 11 loss to the Cardinals.

    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. Megatron will be a mid-range WR1 for that battle. 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

  • Frank Gore productive outside of fumble
    Frank Gore rushed 19 times for 95 yards and caught two passes for 19 yards in Sunday's Week 11 win over the Giants.

    Advice: Gore was extremely effective once again, consistently ripping off chunk runs against a Giants run defense that is inept without MLB Jon Beason. He ended up out-touching Carlos Hyde 21-10 and out-playing the rookie badly as well. The lone blemish was a first-quarter fumble in which Gore just lost the ball without being touched. Chugging along solidly once again, Gore will be a RB2 in a home game against the Redskins Week 12. Rotoworld.com

    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

    Reggie Bush (ankle) is inactive for Week 11 against the Cardinals.

    Advice: As is Brandon Pettigrew (foot). Bush's absence leaves Theo Riddick as the Lions' third-down back behind early-down hammer Joique Bell. Riddick is a low-end FLEX play. Bush should be considered week to week. Also inactive for the Lions are DT Nick Fairley, RG Larry Warford, QB Kellen Moore, DE Larry Webster and WR Ryan Broyles. Rotoworld.com
