Jeremy Sprinkle Headshot

Sprinkle hauled in a seven-yard touchdown pass in Sunday's overtime loss to the Saints.

Sprinkle has been inactive for half of the season but managed 15 offensive reps Sunday with Jordan Reed (hamstring) sidelined. Reed was held out of practice Monday, which doesn't bode well for his chances of playing in the Thanksgiving showdown with the Giants. Sprinkle could continue to see offensive reps with Reed out, but the majority of tight end targets will continue to go to veteran Vernon Davis.
9:37 pm (EST)
Shawn Williams Headshot

Williams had four tackles (three solo) and recovered a fumble in Sunday's win over the Broncos.

Williams will occasionally get nearer to double digit tackles, but Sunday's game against the Broncos was a fairly typical performance. Next week the Bengals face the Browns, another appealing matchup for the defensive unit.
9:35 pm (EST)
Aldrick Rosas Headshot

Rosas made both his field-goal attempts, but missed his lone extra-point try in Sunday's 12-9 win over the Chiefs.

Rosas' 23-yarder in overtime sealed New York's second victory, but was only needed because he missed his first extra point of the season during regulation. The rookie has missed at least one kick in five straight outings, which has paired with the Giants' offensive struggles to limit him to 50 points through 10 appearances.
9:35 pm (EST)
Kyler Fackrell Headshot

Fackrell finished Sunday's loss with five tackles (four solo), and his first sack of the season.

Fackrell did his damage across 34 snaps (58.0 percent). His five tackles were also a season high, as he had not recorded more than two previously. The second year linebacker will match his sack total from his rookie season if he can log one more.
9:34 pm (EST)
Byron Marshall Headshot

Marshall received on carry for two yards in Sunday's overtime loss to the Saints.

Marshall has quickly climbed up the Redskins' depth chart after signing with the team last week. He will enter Thursday's Thanksgiving game against the Cowboys as the No. 2 back after the Redskins loss Rob Kelley (ankle) and Chris Thompson (fibula) the past two weeks. Rookie Samaje Perine (finger) is expected to bear the brunt of the workload from here on out but Marshall will still find himself with an expanded offensive role for the remainder of the season.
9:32 pm (EST)
Mike Nugent Headshot

Nugent converted all three of his field-goal attempts in Sunday's 37-9 loss to the Eagles.

Nugent accounted for the entirety of Dallas' points, bringing his tally to 29 points in four appearances while Dan Bailey (groin) has been sidelined. With Bailey returning as a limited practice participant Monday, Nugent's fantasy stock for Thursday's game versus the Chargers will depend on whether the Cowboys' usual kicker is able to be cleared in time for kickoff.
9:27 pm (EST)
Vontaze Burfict Headshot

Burfict had 12 tackles (11 solo), a sack and a forced fumble in Sunday's win over the Broncos.

It was Burfict's most active game of the season and no surprise that it came against Brock Osweiler and the Broncos. Cincinnati has a similarly appealing matchup against the Browns in Week 12.
9:25 pm (EST)
Shaq Lawson Headshot

Lawson finished Sunday's loss to the Chargers with four solo tackles and a sack.

Lawson's recorded his third sack of the season and first since Week 3. The 23-year-old saw 50 snaps (68.0 percent) on defense. He will look to start a sack streak in the Bills' Week 12 contest against the Chiefs.
9:24 pm (EST)
Brandon McManus Headshot

McManus missed one of his two field-goal attempts and made both his extra-point tries in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Bengals.

McManus nailed a 61-yarder before halftime, but that career-long make was nullified by Cincinnati calling timeout just before the ball was snapped. Unfortunately, McManus' subsequent attempt was blocked, ultimately leaving the Broncos three points behind at the end of the contest. That snapped his double-digit scoring streak at two games, and McManus now sports 69 points on the year.
9:22 pm (EST)
Preston Brown Headshot

Brown led the Bills in tackles with 13 (11 solo) Sunday in a loss to the Chargers.

It was the fourth time Brown has reached double-digit tackles this season. The 25-year-old has yet to record a sack this season, but his activity in the tackle department keeps him a consistent IDP performer. He saw 69 defensive snaps (93.0 percent) in the contest.
