Player Notes

  • Austin Seferian-Jenkins misses practice
    Bucs TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (back) didn't practice Tuesday.

    Advice: ASJ's missed practice coincided with the Bucs signing two tight ends. He's not looking like a great bet to suit up in Week 13.

  • Rams waive WR Damian Williams
    Rams waived WR Damian Williams.

    Advice: TE Justice Cunningham has been promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding roster move. Williams spent less than a month on the Rams' roster, catching zero passes across two games. Williams is just 26, but is running out of NFL options.

  • Cardinals sign veteran back Michael Bush
    Cardinals signed RB Michael Bush.

    Advice: RB Kerwynn Williams has been waived in a corresponding roster move. Bush's name may sound like a blast from the past, but he appeared in 15 games for the Bears last season. Bush was dreadful during his two years in Chicago, averaging just 3.4 yards on 177 carries. He brings tons of experience to a backfield that lacks it, however. Although Andre Ellington's production has declined as his carries have increased and the schedule stiffened, Bush is zero threat to his No. 1 status. It's quite possible Bush will be no higher than No. 4 on the depth chart, but he could rise as high as No. 2.

  • Broncos sign vet K Barth to replace McManus
    Broncos signed K Connor Barth.

    Advice: He'll replace second-year undrafted free agent Brandon McManus, who's been waived after missing four of his first 13 field-goal attempts. Barth has been accurate throughout his career with a big leg, but missed all of 2013 with an Achilles' injury. He was released by the Bucs at final cuts. Provided he's healthy, Barth will be a weekly fantasy option for the Broncos' high-scoring offense.

  • Reggie Bush says he'll be 'ready to go'
    Reggie Bush (ankle) insists he'll be "ready to go" for Thursday's game against the Bears.

    Advice: Bush said the same thing last week, but apparently means it this time. We do indeed expect Bush to suit up for the Lions' annual Thanksgiving classic, but he won't be more than a middling FLEX play. Bush's production has declined this season, while he'll be at risk of re-injury.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Bucs sign two tight ends
    Bucs signed TE D.J. Williams and TE Cameron Brate.

    Advice: WR Marcus Thigpen has been waived. The fact that the Bucs have signed two tight ends can't be considered a good sign for Austin Seferian-Jenkins' (back) Week 13 status. Williams appeared in nine games between the Patriots and Jaguars last season, catching zero passes.

  • Brandon Marshall still 'limited' on Tuesday
    Brandon Marshall (ankle) remained limited in Tuesday's practice.

    Advice: The Bears are just limiting their veteran wideout's reps on a short week. He'll be ready to rock on Thanksgiving in Detroit.

  • Kellen Davis let go by Lions
    Lions waived TE Kellen Davis.

    Advice: The Lions tight end corps is finally returning to health. Davis' roster spot is needed to plug holes on the offensive line.

  • 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.

  • Frank Gore dealing with knee issue
    Frank Gore is on the Week 13 injury report with a knee issue.

    Advice: The 49ers listed Gore as limited for Monday's walkthrough. He's also been dealing with a hip injury, but his Week 13 status isn't a concern. Gore will be a low-end RB2/FLEX against Seattle on Thursday night.

  • Julius Thomas has a chance to return Sunday
    The Denver Post says "there's a chance" Julius Thomas (ankle) could return for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs.

    Advice: Thomas sat out Week 12 with his sprained left ankle. His status can't be taken for granted for Week 13, but he's trending in the right direction. "I have had better days, and I have had worse days," Thomas said Monday. "You hope you just wake up one day and it feels good again, but that didn't happen last week. But it has improved." Jacob Tamme was held to just one catch filling in for Thomas last week.

  • Jordan Cameron trending in right direction
    According to ESPN Cleveland, signs point toward Jordan Cameron (concussion) playing in Week 13.

    Advice: Cameron has suffered three concussions since 2012, but has been assured by doctors he's not putting his long-term health in jeopardy by continuing to play football. 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.

  • Tom Savage not expected to get chance yet
    QB Tom Savage is not expected to play unless the Texans are eliminated from the playoffs.

    Advice: With Ryan Mallett done for the season, we'd love to see the Texans give Savage a shot over limited veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick. It doesn't look like it's going to happen. The 5-6 Texans are two games out of first place in the AFC South with five games to go.

  • Griff Whalen signed to practice squad
    Colts re-signed WR/KR Griff Whalen to their practice squad.

    Advice: Whalen was released after the Colts added return specialist Josh Cribbs. He found no interest on the open market and settled for a taxi squad spot back in Indy.

  • 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.

  • Joe Morgan manages 129 yards on two touches
    Joe Morgan caught one pass for 62 yards and rushed one time for 67 yards in the Saints' Week 12 loss to the Ravens.

    Advice: Yes, that's 129 yards on two touches. Morgan took the second play of the game 67 yards on a reverse up the left sideline before getting tackle inside the five-yard line. 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.

  • Jimmy Graham goes 6-47-2 in MNF defeat
    Jimmy Graham caught six passes for 47 yards and two touchdowns in the Saints' Week 12 loss to the Ravens on Monday night.

    Advice: Graham was targeted a game-high 10 times. His first touchdown came from 10 yards away in the flat to the left in the first quarter, while Graham later scored a garbage-time two-yard touchdown on a back-shoulder pass. Look for Drew Brees to continue to force-feed Graham on the road in Pittsburgh in Week 13. He'll be a top-two tight-end option along with Rob Gronkowski next weekend.

  • Colston goes 4-82-1 in Week 12 loss
    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.
