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.
The Nuggets are set to be without Wilson Chandler (back) on Monday, so Barton will jump into the starting lineup and will immediately become a very intriguing fantasy play. In two previous starts this season, Barton has blown up for averages of 19.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists across 36.2 minutes, and he'll get a ton of minutes once again with both Chandler and Paul Millsap (wrist) sitting out.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Crowder has topped 70 yards receiving in each of his past three games as he continues to cement himself as the Redskins' top target. In addition to a gut-wrenching loss on Sunday, the Redskins left the game with several key injuries to offensive weapons including Chris Thompson (fibula) and Ryan Grant (calf). Furthermore, Jordan Reed (hamstring) continues to miss practice time and Terrelle Pryor (ankle) was placed on injured reserve. All these injuries leave Crowder as one of the few established targets in Kirk Cousins' arsenal, which could lead to increased targets on Thanksgiving night.
The 12 tackles are Ogletree's highest game output of the season and the second time he's reached double digits. The 25-year-old should see plenty of opportunities next week against the Saints and their run-heavy offense.
It was the second time this season Poyer has tallied 11 tackles, while the eight solo is a season high. He was one of two Bills players to play in every defensive snap. The 26-year-old figures to remain heavily involved on defense as the season progresses.
