All Player News
  • PHI Wide Receiver #6
    Smith hauled in a two-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter and has now found the end zone in back-to-back weeks and four times in his last five games. The Slim Reaper finished second only to A.J. Brown in receiving yards against the 49ers and was responsible for multiple big gains. Smith has caught 22 passes for 301 yards and two touchdowns in his last three games while averaging nine targets per game. He’ll be a fringe WR1/WR2 in Week 14 against the Cowboys.
  • LAR Running Back #23
    Williams played 94 percent of the Rams’ snaps on Sunday and is arguably the most important player in this offense. The Browns sold out to stop the run, using a single high safety and a variety of blitzes and stunts on the line to a force the Rams to throw. Despite all of that, Williams was able to overcome missed assignments from his offensive line and slip tackles for extra yardage throughout the day. He also remained heavily involved in the passing game and was able to punch in a touchdown on the Ram’s final drive of the game, even though the two-minute warning had already elapsed and the Browns had no timeouts so the Rams could have just kneeled out the clock. Not that fantasy managers are upset about it. He remains an RB1 in fantasy due to his skill and workload.
  • PHI Wide Receiver #11
    Brown kicked things off with a 38-yard reception on the Eagles’ first possession of the day, which wound up being his longest play of the afternoon. The veteran receiver hauled in several big plays on the day and was involved throughout the game. Brown didn’t find the end zone in this one, but he entered the day with just six receptions for 45 yards over the last two weeks, making Week 13’s outburst an important one. The Eagles’ WR1 led the team in targets and yards, and will be on the WR1 radar in Week 14 when they take on the Cowboys.
  • LAR Quarterback #9
    That’s now seven touchdowns and just one interception in the last two games for Stafford. The Browns sold out to stop the run for much of the game, and Stafford obliged, meticulously taking what the defense gave him and working the ball down the field. Aside from a 70-yard seam route to Puka Nacua, where Nacua sped by the Browns’ safeties, the Rams had just one pass play for over 20 yards. With Cooper Kupp clearly not operating at 100 percent, this Rams offense is not as explosive as it has looked at times this season, but Stafford remains effective and accurate, which means the Rams are capable of scoring against almost any defense. Things will get only marginally easier next week against a ferocious Ravens pass rush.
  • SF Wide Receiver #19
    Samuel had his best day of the season, needing only seven touches to total 138 yards of offense and three scores. His two touchdown receptions came on strong individual efforts, as Samuel took short passes for long gains on his way to scores from 46 and 48 yards out. Samuel also ran untouched to the end zone for a 12-yard score early in the third quarter, as the 49ers were clicking on all cylinders throughout the afternoon. Deebo has now totaled 232 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns on 17 touches over his last two games (13.6 YPT). He’ll look to continue his hot-running ways in Week 14 against the Seahawks.
  • CLE Quarterback #15
    The game got away from Joe Flacco and the Browns late, but it was much closer than the score indicates and Flacco looked surprisingly good in his first start for the Browns considering he was just signed under two weeks ago. He was decisive with his reads, effective on play action, and showed good arm strength throughout the game. He was never the most mobile quarterback, and he certainly didn’t add any agility, but he showed a willingness to push the ball down the field, which is likely a boost for the Browns pass catchers. His interception was a poor throw on a miscommunication where Flacco aired the ball out for what turned out to be an easy, lofting pick that helped cost the Browns the game. That one mistake aside, Flacco looked every bit as effective running the Browns offense as Deshaun Watson has for much of the season. Of course, the Browns still won’t commit to him starting next week.
  • LAR Wide Receiver #17
    The game began exceptionally for Nacua, who had all of his receiving stats in the first quarter, including a 70-yard seam route down the middle of the field where Nacua simply outran the Browns’ safety for the TD. It was the longest play from scrimmage for the Rams all season and put Nacua over 1,000 receiving yards on the year. In doing so, he became the first Rams rookie ever to reach the milestone and is the 6th player since the 1970 merger to reach the mark within his first 12 games, the first since Justin Jefferson in 2020. It looked like Nacua suffered a major shoulder injury in the second quarter, but he was able to return and finish the game and even rattled off a 31-yard run and another 45-yard run that was called back on a questionable holding call. He should be good to go for next week against the Ravens, even if he misses a practice or two during the week.
  • CAR Running Back #30
    It was a workmanlike outing for Hubbard, who dominated the backfield work with 25 of 33 running back rushing attempts. Both of Hubbard’s touchdowns came inside the ten yard line. The Panthers attacked the middle of the Tampa defense and exploited a range of injuries among Bucs linebackers and linemen. The Panthers’ new coaching staff may have more of a commitment to Hubbard as the team’s lead back for the remainder of the season. Miles Sanders saw most of the passing game work against Tampa. Hubbard should be a top-24 option in Week 14 against the run-funnel Saints.
  • SF Quarterback #13
    Purdy’s return to Philadelphia ended with a far better outcome than what we saw in his first trip to The Linc last January. For starters, he left the game unscathed. Despite a slow start, Purdy and the 49ers lit the Eagles’ defense up for much of the game, throwing four scores on the afternoon, which included two long touchdowns by Deebo Samuel. Samuel did most of the work on those touchdowns, but credit to Purdy for at least getting him the ball. Now at 9-3 on the season, Purdy and the 49ers will prepare for a Week 14 matchup against the Seahawks, whom they pummeled just two weeks ago on Thanksgiving Day.
  • CAR Quarterback #9
    Struggling to see beyond his offensive linemen — as noted by the game announcers — Young was content to check down time and again, with the occasional off-target downfield shot. There was nothing notable different about Carolina’s offense a week after the team fired head coach Frank Reich and a handful of other coaches. Young continues to make baffling decisions in the pocket and has been hampered by a generally dysfunctional offense. Young won’t be a fantasy option in Week 14 against New Orleans.
