  • Marlon Mack RB | DEN

    Broncos' Marlon Mack: Minimal involvement in loss

    Mack rushed two times for three yards and secured his only target for six yards in Sunday's 10-9 loss to the Ravens.

    Mack played just five of the Broncos' 53 offensive snaps Sunday, operating as the No. 3 running back. The veteran recorded two rushes and one catch in each of his first two games with Denver. With Latavius Murray dominating touches out of the backfield and Mike Boone slotting in as the team's top backup, Mack's opportunities for meaningful production should remain limited going forward. Barring injuries to Murray and Boone, the 26-year-old should be far off the fantasy radar when the Broncos host the Chiefs in Week 14.

  • Jerome Baker ILB | MIA

    Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Tallies half-sack

    Baker recorded 12 tackles (six solo) and a half-sack during Sunday's 33-17 loss to the 49ers.

    Baker has 1.5 sacks in his last two games, production which has coincided with Bradley Chubb getting more involved on defense following Miami's bye. The starting linebacker has recorded double-digit stops just twice this season, but he has some good momentum to carry into Week 14's game against the Chargers.

  • Dolphins' Christian Wilkins: Racks up double-digit stops

    Wilkins notched 12 tackles (eight solo) and once forced fumble during Sunday's 33-17 loss to the 49ers.

    Wilkins logged his best tackling day of the 2022 campaign during Sunday's loss, as it was his first contest this season with double-digit stops. The starting defensive end only has 1.5 sacks through 12 appearances, though Bradley Chubb's growing presence for the Dolphins could improve the pass rush as a whole down the stretch.

  • Mike Boone RB | DEN

    Broncos' Mike Boone: Limited role in return

    Boone rushed six times for 18 yards and secured his only target for eight yards in Sunday's 10-9 loss to the Ravens.

    Boone operated as Denver's No. 2 running back behind Latavius Murray, who handled 17 carries in the contest. In the backup role, Boone played just 12 of the Broncos' 53 offensive snaps. The veteran likely faces an uphill battle to fantasy relevance with Denver's continued ineffectiveness on offense. Boone's potential contributions as a pass catcher also seem to be in danger with Murray tied for the second-most targets in the Denver passing game Sunday. Nonetheless, the 27-year-old should remain in his role as a change-of-pace back when the Broncos host the Chiefs in Week 14, though he is extremely difficult to trust for fantasy purposes.

  • Isaiah Likely TE | BAL

    Ravens' Isaiah Likely: Efficient outing Sunday

    Likely caught all four of his targets for 30 yards Sunday against the Broncos.

    The rookie returned from a one-game absence Sunday and turned in one of his more efficient outings of the season. It marked the third time this season he caught every target. Likely seemed to have a solid rapport with Tyler Huntley after he came in for the injured Lamar Jackson (knee). Still, Mark Andrews, Demarcus Robinson and Devin Duvernay led the team in targets. Baltimore plays at Pittsburgh in Week 14.

  • Justice Hill RB | BAL

    Ravens' Justice Hill: Minimal work Sunday

    Hill had one carry for two yards and added two receptions for four yards Sunday against the Broncos.

    Hill and Gus Edwards played the same number of snaps (17) but Edwards was more involved with six carries. Meanwhile, Kenyan Drake played the most snaps among the Ravens running backs and led the backfield with seven rushes for 29 yards. The offense was facing a tough matchup, but the fact remains that the team mustered just 281 total yards with Tyler Huntley at quarterback. If Jackson is out Sunday against the Steelers, the offense could be hemmed in once again.

  • Kenyan Drake RB | BAL

    Ravens' Kenyan Drake: Paces Ravens backfield Sunday

    Drake had seven carries for 29 yards along with two catches for 17 yards in Sunday's win over the Broncos.

    Drake paced the backfield in snap share at 47 percent and was the team's most effective running back overall, out-rushing Gus Edwards by 17 yards on just one more carry. The offense shifted after Lamar Jackson went out with a knee injury and backup Tyler Huntley ultimately led the team in rushing. Though Drake was the top back Sunday, Edwards could continue to push for the lead role as he gets closer to 100 percent.

  • Saints' Rashid Shaheed: Career outing in loss

    Shaheed gathered in all four targets for 75 yards during Monday's 17-16 loss against Tampa Bay.

    Shaheed continued to serve as the explosive element in the Saints' limited offense, catching a 40-yard pass from quarterback Andy Dalton for the team's longest play from scrimmage Monday night. The undrafted wideout also quickly set a new career high when he reached 71 receiving yards with his third reception of the first half. The speedster came close to breaking the first special-teams score of his career on a 42-yard punt return in the second quarter, but he was forced out of bounds by punter Jake Camarda at the Tampa Bay 40-yard line. Shaheed's dynamic abilities as both a receiver and scoring threat in the open field appear to have earned him a bigger role, as his 36 offensive snaps fell behind only first-round rookie Chris Olave (41) amongst the Saints' wide receivers. The team will now have a bye week off before taking on the division-rival Falcons on Sunday, Dec. 18.

  • Tony Fields II OLB | CLE

    Browns' Tony Fields: Pick six Sunday

    Fields recorded four tackles (three solo), a forced fumble and an interception returned for a touchdown in Sunday's 27-14 win over the Texans.

    Fields logged one of the Browns' two defensive touchdowns against Houston, picking off Kyle Allen for a 16-yard return in the fourth quarter. The second-year linebacker also forced a fumble that led to a four-yard scoop-and-score touchdown by cornerback Denzel early in the third quarter. Fields' 30 defensive snaps marked the most significant playing time of his career, and he'll likely be on tap for increased usage moving forward after starting linebacker Sione Takitaki suffered a torn ACL on Sunday.

  • Fabian Moreau CB | NYG

    Giants' Fabian Moreau: Posts seven tackles in Week 13 tie

    Moreau recorded seven tackles (three solo) and a defended pass Sunday in a 20-20 tie with Washington.

    Moreau missed New York's Week 12 contest against Dallas due to an oblique injury, but he was able to return to face the Commanders on Sunday. The veteran cornerback logged 100 percent of the Giants' defensive snaps for the third time this season and finished fifth on the team with seven stops. Moreau hasn't recorded a sack or a turnover this season and has posted inconsistent tackle totals, so he's not on the IDP radar.
