Justin Verlander allowed one earned run on nine hits while walking two and striking out eight over seven innings as the Tigers beat the White Sox 7-1 on Friday.
Verlander improved to 12-11 with a 4.68 ERA and 1.45 WHIP after Friday's solid performance after allowed eight earned runs over his previous two trips to the mound. His eight strikeouts were also a 10 start-high, while owning a nine year-low 6.93 K/9 over 171.1 innings of work. Although he has had a down season up to this point, he is the type of player that can step it up when needed most so look for him to turn things around following this solid outing. He will look to keep up the pace when he takes on the Indians on Wednesday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
NFL Insider Adam Schefter reports Keshawn Martin (hamstring) will play Week 12.
Martin has been nursing a hamstring injury but will suit up this week for the Patriots. With injuries depleting the Patriots WR corps, Martin will likely jump into a nice role for this team and could see decent production this week against the Broncos. Don't consider him a starting player just yet as he is going up against the best defense in the league but if Amendola is going to miss an extended amount of time, Martin will be a nice addition to your fantasy squads.

Spencer Ware will start on Sunday.
With Charcandrick West out of the game on Sunday, Spencer Ware will step up into the starting role for the Chiefs. Ware was impressive when on the field last week for the Chiefs and should be in line for another solid game. If you are short on RB's and need some help in your matchup today, Ware could be a nice option to scoop up on waivers. Analysis: Dillon Conklin
Eagles coach Chip Kelly is still drawing interest from USC.
With the Eagles struggling over the past couple of weeks and likely falling out of contention there has been a lot of talk that Kelly will be out as Head Coach. With the talks about his job in jeopardy comes talks about where he may end up next. It appears that some college teams are interested in his services with USC drawing the most interest with Kelly.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce is expected to play Week 12 against the Bills.
Kelce injured his ankle in practice this week but is expected to be able to suit up for the Chiefs. Kelce has been underwhelming over the past couple of seasons and has been a fantasy disappointment after a big season was expected out of him. The Bills defense tends to be pretty stingy with TE's so do not expect much from Kelce today especially if the ankle is not 100% yet. Analysis: Dillon Conklin
