Trent Williams said he is "definitely optimistic" that he'll be ready to go when his team travels to Indianapolis Sunday.

Robert Griffin's absence from the starting lineup could be as short as one week, and it could last until the start of next season. Either way, the plan is to try to get Griffin back to being the player he was in 2012.

Listening to the back-and-forth on Griffin and the Redskins is like taking an elephant dart to the face. Enough already. Neither Jay Gruden nor any of the beat writers covering the situation are saying anything that the rest of the world doesn't already know. The bottom line for fantasy owners is that he's not playing this week but may or may not be under center for Week 14. Clear as mud?? We thought so. Moving forward, there are just too many variables with which to contend. He's not someone you can trust this season and he doesn't have any keeper value for next year no matter how cheaply he was acquired. End of thread.

Emmanuel Acho, who left Week 12 against Tennessee with a groin injury, was active but did not play Thanksgiving against the Cowboys. Coach Chip Kelly said that Acho was available only in an emergency.

Not that it even mattered as the Eagles beat the Cowboys senseless up and down the field all day Thursday. Acho, who only plays part-time, wouldn't have made any sort of a difference. His absence went unnoticed by everyone but his family and the Eagles showed no need for him. If he was available, then he should be good to go for Week 13 then.

Arian Foster was limited at Thursday's practice.

While Foster has been limited both Wednesday and Thursday, coach Bill O'Brien remains optimistic that the running back will suit up and play Sunday. Typical of the situation, Foster will likely be listed as questionable and remain a game-time decision. Just make sure you've got your contingency plan ready to go just in case.

Ryan Fitzpatrick has had a good week of practice, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. "I always say, that needs to carry over to the game, but I've been really impressed with how Ryan has practiced this week," said O'Brien.

The news is moderately reassuring at best. After all, Fitzpatrick was the starter for the first nine games and threw for 1,960 yards with 11 touchdowns and was picked off eight times. He's a pro quarterback so we should hope he looks good in practice. It's what happens on the field that matters most though, and Fitzpatrick's biggest problem prior to the benching was his accuracy as he was just 32-of-62 (51.6-percent) over his last two games. If he can carry over from practice onto the field Sunday, then yes, there should be a decent showing. Playing the Titans should also help. But he's going to need a strong game to convince anyone that he's worthy of a look in fantasy.

Phil Dawson was 1-of-1 on field goal attempts during the 49ers' 19-3 loss to the Seahawks on Thursday.

Dawson did his part in the wreckage, nailing a 40-yard field goal in his only try. He's shown tremendous improvement in his second year as a 49er, and the veteran kicker should be owned and started in most leagues.

Steven Hauschka was 4-of-4 on field goal attempts and converted an extra point during the Seahawks' 19-3 win over the 49ers on Thursday.

The Seahawks' have been terrible in the redzone the last few weeks and Mr. Hauscka and his fantasy owners have reaped the rewards of said ineptness. He's been among the most productive kickers in fantasy and should continue to be for the rest of the season.

Chris Borland led the 49ers with 16 tackles during their 19-3 loss to the Seahawks on Thursday.

Borland has now led the 49ers in tackles for six straight weeks. He's been more of a defensive presence than anyone anticipated and has grown into an IDP darling. He's quickly become a centerpiece for the 49ers' defensive future.
