  • Jakeem Grant: 6 targets, 12 yards vs. Broncos
    Jakeem Grant caught 2-of-6 targets for 12 yards in the Dolphins' Week 11 loss to Denver. 

    Advice: Grant continues to see WR2 duties behind DeVante Parker while Preston Williams is out with a knee injury. Grant would be more intriguing for fantasy purposes if Miami didn't run such a conservative offense with Tua Tagovailoa under center. But it's clear Parker will be the only reliable fantasy producer for as long as Tua -- who was benched against Denver -- can hold on to the starting gig. Grant is a reasonable low-end WR3 this week against the Jets.  Rotoworld.com Today, 9:54 am

  • Matt Breida barely plays in Week 11 vs. DEN
    Matt Breida rushed twice for four yards in the Dolphins' Week 11 loss to Denver. 

    Advice: Breida got a grand total of six snaps in his return from a hamstring injury. Salvon Ahmed logged an 85 percent snaps share and continued operating as the team's workhorse against the Broncos. Breida has no defined role in Miami's offense and the return of Myles Gaskin (knee) will further bury Breida on the team's depth chart. He shouldn't be rostered in any fantasy format.  Rotoworld.com Today, 9:48 am

  • Kerryon Johnson has six rushes, 17 yards vs. CAR
    Kerryon Johnson rushed six times for 17 yards in the Lions' Week 11 loss to Carolina, adding two receptions for 21 yards. 

    Advice: Johnson's 38 total yards amounted to 18 more than Adrian Peterson, who came into the game as the team's presumed RB1. The entire Detroit offense has a debacle against a perfectly average Carolina defense. Johnson and Peterson should be treated as fringe fantasy options for Week 12 against the Texans if DeAndre Swift (concussion) remains out.  Rotoworld.com Today, 9:38 am

  • Alexander Mattison gets one touch in Week 11 loss
    Alexander Mattison carried the ball one time in Minnesota's Week 11 loss to the Cowboys.

    Advice: Mattison hasn't been a factor since Dalvin Cook returned from injury, getting out-touched 122-18 by the latter in Minnesota's last four games. Mattison should either be stashed as a handcuff or dropped altogether since he has no standalone value as long as Cook is healthy. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:34 am

  • Irv Smith catches two targets in return to field
    Irv Smith caught both of his targets for 23 yards in Minnesota's Week 11 loss to Dallas.

    Advice: Smith was out-snapped 45-33 by Kyle Rudolph in the former's return to the field but actually ran more routes than the latter (21-17) on the day. It will still be hard for either to succeed in fantasy as long as this situation remains a timeshare. Smith remains the better long-term prospect to breakout ahead of the fantasy playoffs if healthy.

  • Watson accounts for 88 percent of Texans yardage
    Deshaun Watson has accounted for 88 percent of the Texans' offensive yardage this season. 

    Advice: That would be the highest rate for a player in the past decade if it holds for the next six weeks. Houston's offense is a bottom-tier unit without their all-world QB, who threw for 344 yards and three touchdowns in Week 11 against the Patriots. If Houston is in a good spot against a suspect defense, he's going to produce or no one in the Texans' offense is going or produce. Watson is a high-end QB1 for Week 12 against a Detroit defense that just gave up 16.7 fantasy points to P.J. Walker.  Rotoworld.com Today, 9:30 am

  • Rudolph catches three passes with Irv Smith back
    Kyle Rudolph caught all three of his targets for 28 yards in Minnesota's Week 11 loss to the Cowboys.

    Advice: As expected, Rudolph reverted back into a committee player with Irv Smith (groin) active for two targets and more routes run (21-17). Rudolph can be ignored on waivers in every league unless Smith misses further time. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:29 am

  • Jefferson scores 39-yard touchdown in Week 11 loss
    Justin Jefferson caught 3-of-5 targets for 86 yards and one touchdown in Minnesota's Week 11 loss to Dallas.

    Advice: Jefferson was spotted wide open downfield for a 39-yard touchdown (and proceeded to do The Griddy) following a play-action pass from Kirk Cousins. Even so, Adam Thielen was found for two touchdowns since he's been concertedly looked at for more red zone (13-1) and end zone (13-1) targets than Jefferson since Week 3 — when Jefferson was initially started in two-wide sets. Week 12 against the Panthers is still a terrific spot for the rookie, who currently leads the league in yards per route run, since the Panthers have permitted the sixth-most catches to enemy wideouts.

  • Cook totals 160 yards on 32 touches, scores TD
    Dalvin Cook rushed 27 times for 115 yards and one score, hauling in all five of his targets for 45 yards in Minnesota's Week 11 loss to Dallas.

    Advice: Cook plunged in for a one-yard touchdown after Adam Thielen was tackled at the goal line, giving the former a league-leading 13 rushing scores through Minnesota's first 10 games; the last player to have more rushing touchdowns in a team's first 10 games was LaDainian Tomlinson in 2006 (19). Cook has also experienced a slight role change since returning from injury, handling at least 32 touches in 3-of-4 games in that span. Alexander Mattison has merely touched the ball 18 times behind Cook (122) during that four-game stretch. With a workload that exceeds both Alvin Kamara's and Derrick Henry's usage, Cook is vividly setup to close the year as the overall RB1 in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:14 am

  • Kenny Stills' quad injury 'not considered serious'
    The Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson said Kenny Stills' quad injury isn't considered serious. 

    Advice: Stills left Week 11 with the injury and did not return. He might have an outside shot at suiting up for Thursday's game against the Lions. Fantasy managers should look elsewhere for a WR4/5 option. Keke Coutee will make for a better Week 12 fantasy option with Randall Cobb (toe) likely out. Stills has 19 targets all season.  Rotoworld.com Today, 9:12 am

  • Pollard runs for 42-yard TD in Dallas' Week 11 win
    Tony Pollard rushed five times for 60 yards and a touchdown in Dallas' Week 11 win against the Vikings.

    Advice: A majority of Pollard's production came on his 42-yard touchdown scamper to open the fourth quarter. He was still out-touched 23-5 by Ezekiel Elliott, who recorded his first 100-yard performance of the season. Pollard can continue being treated as a handcuff and thin small-slate DFS option since Elliott's workload isn't being chopped into any time soon. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:02 am

  • Schultz catches game-winning TD against Vikings
    Dalton Schultz caught 4-of-6 targets for 25 yards and the game-winning touchdown in Dallas' Week 11 win against the Vikings.

    Advice: With 1:27 remaining in the fourth quarter, Andy Dalton found Schultz settling in the end zone for the game-winning two-yard touchdown. He was simply peppered underneath to that point, finishing tied with CeeDee Lamb (4/34/1) for second on the team in targets behind Amari Cooper (7). Schultz wouldn't normally pop as a strong streaming option, but the number of injuries at his position will likely force him into fantasy lineups in Week 12. Washington has also permitted the 11th-most fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:02 am

  • Gallup sees five targets in Dallas' Week 11 win
    Michael Gallup caught 2-of-5 targets for 29 yards in Dallas' Week 11 win against the Vikings.

    Advice: He also dropped an underthrown ball from Andy Dalton that would have resulted in a 30-plus yard gain. Dalton was afforded additional time under center with Zach Martin at right tackle, but Gallup's role on deep shots along the sideline stayed the same. He'll be a boom-or-bust WR4 in a similar role on Thursday against Washington. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:57 am

  • Randall Cobb (toe) could be headed to IR
    Randall Cobb (toe) could be placed on injured reserve. 

    Advice: Cobb exited Week 11's game with the toe injury. A trip to IR would mean the Texans' slot receiver would be out for at least three weeks. Without Cobb for Houston's Thanksgiving game against Detroit, Keke Coutee will have value in PPR formats. Coutee ran 26 pass routes and caught two passes -- one for a touchdown -- in Week 11 after Cobb left the game. Thirty-five of Cobb's 47 targets this season have come on slot routes. Coutee should be regarded as a WR3 in PPR formats for Week 12.  Rotoworld.com Today, 8:55 am

  • Lamb records Catch of the Year nominee in win
    CeeDee Lamb caught 4-of-6 targets for 34 yards and a touchdown in Dallas' Week 11 win over the Vikings.

    Advice: Lamb's lone touchdown was a highlight reel catch that saw him grip the ball behind rookie Jeff Gladney while the former was falling onto his back in the corner of the end zone. The Cowboys also featured Lamb for a couple of jet sweeps as it was clear the team wanted to integrate him into the offense in a variety of ways. Although his targets from the slot have been shallower than Michael Gallup's this year, Lamb's floor remains safer ahead of Thursday's matchup against Washington. All three of Dallas' receivers will be in play for the three-game DFS holiday slate. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:52 am

  • Keke Coutee runs 26 routes with Cobb, Stills out
    Keke Coutee ran 26 pass routes in Week 11 against the Patriots. 

    Advice: Randall Cobb exited the game early with a potentially significant toe injury and Kenny Stills left with a quad issue. Coutee became Houston's No. 3 receiver, running 23 routes from the slot on his way to two catches, 10 yards, and a touchdown against New England. Coutee will be a WR3/4 option in deeper PPR leagues if Cobb and Stills are inactive for Thursday's game against the Lions.  Rotoworld.com Today, 6:56 am

  • Keke Coutee finds the end zone, Cobb/Stills exit
    Keke Coutee caught 2-of-4 targets for 10 yards and touchdown in the Texans' Week 11 win over the Patriots.

    Advice: Entering the game as the No. 5 receiver, Coutee became the distant third receiver after Randall Cobb (foot) and Kenny Stills (leg) left the game early. With the Texans playing on Thanksgiving next week, Coutee could be on the field for a season-high amount of snaps against the Lions on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:08 pm

  • Deshaun Watson hangs 380 yards, 3 TDs vs. Patriots
    Deshaun Watson completed 28-of-37 passes for 344 yards and two touchdowns in the Texans' Week 11 win over the Patriots.

    Advice: Watson was incredible once again, a trend that's picked up steam since Bill O'Brien's firing. Watson took multiple shots downfield after creating extra time by scrambling around in and outside of the pocket, plus added to his highlight reel with a truck stick rushing touchdown. All of this production happened without star LT Laremy Tunsil, who missed Week 11 with the flu. Watson could be without Randall Cobb (foot) and Kenny Stills (leg) moving forward, but all he needs are his legs, Will Fuller, and Brandin Cooks. Watson will be a top-five option against the Lions on Thanksgiving. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:02 pm

    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Texans WR Kenny Stills (back) is expected to play in Week 11 against the Patriots.

    Advice: Stills has one target on 23 snaps in his past two weeks. Since Week 5, he has one game with more than a single target. He remains a No. 4 receiver on his own team and shouldn't be rostered in most fantasy leagues.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:47 am

  • Irv Smith (groin) expected to play Week 11 vs. DAL
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Vikings TE Irv Smith (groin) is expected to play in Week 11 against the Cowboys.

    Advice: Smith's return pushes Kyle Rudolph back into a time-share on a team that is already basing their offense around running the ball. Rudolph recorded a season-high in targets (5) last week but can firmly be dropped from all fantasy rosters. Smith had seen four or more targets in three of his previous four games before suffering the groin injury. He's a deep streaming option for teams in desperate need of tight end production.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:02 am

    Alexander Mattison rushed two times for four yards in the Vikings' Week 10 win over the Bears.

    Advice: Mattison recorded a season-low in carries and did not see a target. If anything happens to Cook, Mattison will vault into RB1 territory. As long as Cook is healthy, Mattison has no weekly fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:01 pm

  • Rudolph totals 63 yards in Week 10 win over CHI
    Kyle Rudolph caught 4-of-5 targets for 63 yards in the Vikings' Week 10 win over the Bears.

    Advice: Rudolph's night began with the Bears forcing a fumble on him that they then recovered. It was the 10-year veteran's first lost fumble ever. Fortunately for Rudolph, his 63 receiving yards were a high dating back to Week 11 of 2019. His big day was likely the result of second-year tight end Irv Smith being inactive for this game. The most targets Rudolph had seen in a game this season up to this point were four. Once Smith returns, Rudolph will likely lose all of his recently-gained fantasy value.

  • Jefferson breakout continues with 135 yards vs CHI
    Justin Jefferson caught 8-of-10 targets for 135 yards in the Vikings' Week 10 win over the Bears.

    Advice: Jefferson now has four games of at least 100 receiving yards on the year. The record for a rookie since the NFL/AFL merger is seven such games set by Odell Beckham in 2014. Jefferson is now chasing history with eight games left on his schedule. Even though Minnesota operates a run-first approach, Jefferson is still managing to light up the scoreboard every few weeks. Thielen caught both of Kirk Cousins' touchdowns versus the Bears but Jefferson led the Vikings in targets. He's a high-end WR2 going forward. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:37 pm

  • Dalvin Cook hits 112 total yards win over Chicago
    Dalvin Cook rushed 30 times for 96 yards in the Vikings' Week 10 win over the Bears.

    Advice: Cook was bottled up for most of the game and only managed two runs over 10 yards. Both came in the final quarter. He saved his day in PPR leagues with four receptions for an additional 16 yards. Despite Cook continuing to get stuffed for minimal games, Minnesota refused to try anything different. Even while averaging 3.2 yards per carry, Week 10 was Cook's fifth game over 100 total yards in his previous six outings. The only game that he didn't hit that mark saw him exit with an injury. Even in the games where Minnesota's offense looks ruined, Cook is likely to post a solid fantasy day. He remains a viable candidate to be the RB1 overall going forward. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:29 pm

    Jakeem Grant caught 4-of-5 targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in Week 10 against the Chargers.

    Advice: Grant played the No. 2 role with Preston Williams sidelined. He led the Dolphins in yards and scored on a red-zone throw from Tua Tagovailoa. Grant should have a top-three role until Williams returns, but his ceiling is low with a rookie quarterback.   Rotoworld.com Nov 15, 5:04 pm

  • Gale-like winds hold Watson to 163/1 in CLE
    Deshaun Watson completed 20-of-30 passes for 163 yards and one touchdown in the Texans' 10-7, Week 10 loss to the Browns. 

    Advice: Watson added eight carries for 36 yards. With gale-like winds swirling off of Lake Erie in Cleveland, the Texans' passing game had nowhere to go. Watson entered halftime with just 71 yards, and was under 100 into the fourth quarter. There was just nothing that could be done in weather conditions that created a 37-minute delay to start the game. Watson had a number of throws that probably could have been caught but were not perfect passes because of the conditions. Speaking to that point, his 16-yard touchdown strike to — we are not making this up — Pharaoh Brown, looked like it may have been intended for Will Fuller, but the wind put Brown in better position. Headed home to domed Houston to face New England in Week 11, Watson should bounce back with a vengeance.  Rotoworld.com Nov 15, 1:23 pm

    Advice: We can assume he's out despite the questionable tag. The Miami backfield has more questions than answers still. It's possible that DeAndre Washington joins Jordan Howard, Salvon Ahmad, and Patrick Laird. With the Dolphins only projected for a forgettable 24.75 points this week, it's a backfield to avoid if possible.

    Vikings offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak said Irv Smith (groin) is "trending in the right direction" to play the Bears in Week 10. 

    Advice: It's a curious comment considering Smith didn't practice Thursday or Friday. He still has an outside shot to get the green light for Week 10 since the Vikings play on Monday night. If he can get in a limited practice Saturday, he should be able to suit up against Chicago. Like almost every tight end in fantasy football, Smith is a touchdown dependent option this week (and every week) in Minnesota's ultra-conservative offense.  Rotoworld.com Nov 13, 10:55 am
