  Redskins | Robert Griffin needs more seasoning    Wed Nov 26, 02:47 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III needs more seasoning, and he'll likely do it from the bench for the rest of this season, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Griffin is under contract for one more year, and he could still be in their long-term plans. 'Robert has done some good things at quarterback, but I just think he needs a little bit more time in this system with the verbiage and the plays to sit back, take a step back and learn, and when he gets back in there he'll be a lot more decisive, hopefully, and ready to roll,' Gruden said. The 'Skins want Griffin to eventually become more of a pocket passer, and they want him to be able to regain confidence in his abilities.

Footballguys view: Griffin needs a complete reset. His mechanics are beyond flawed, and his confidence has to be shaken after getting benched. That's the main hurdle for Griffin to overcome-the mental side of this. He's an emotional leader, but those emotions can work against him as he's arguably too sensitive to criticism. We'll see if Griffin can make things right in Washington.

  Texans | Arian Foster expected to play    Wed Nov 26, 02:22 PM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) has an excellent chance to return in Week 13 against the Tennessee Titans after missing the last two games.

Footballguys view: Foster owners should be happy with this development, but Alfred Blue owners will be disappointed. With some extra rest, Foster is certainly a must-start in Week 13.

  Texans | Ryan Mallett to IR    Wed Nov 26, 02:19 PM

Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallett (pectoral) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Nov. 26, and QB Thaddeus Lewis was promoted to the active roster in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: This is just a bad break for Mallett. He came over to the Texans in a trade earlier this year after spending most of his career as the primary backup behind Tom Brady. Now, Mallett is heading into free agency coming off this injury with only two starts under his belt.

  Texans | Ryan Fitzpatrick will start in Week 13    Wed Nov 26, 02:16 PM

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will start in Week 13 against the Tennessee Titans.

Footballguys view: We've seen this story play out before and it's not thrilling for the Texans passing game. Drop the expectations for guys like Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins.

  Chargers | Ryan Mathews practicing    Wed Nov 26, 02:15 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (shoulder) is in full gear Wednesday, Nov. 26, before practice.

Footballguys view: Mathews is getting healthier and fantasy owners need to take note. As he continues to come back, Mathews should start producing like he used to. In Week 12 against the Rams, Mathews rushed 12 times for 105 yards and one touchdown. This week against the Ravens is a tough matchup. Baltimore ranks 5th-best in the league as they only allow an average of 88.3 rushing yards per game.

  Eagles | Mark Sanchez thriving on play action    Wed Nov 26, 02:14 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez has thrown six interceptions this year, but all of them haven't been game-changing turnovers. In Week 12 against the Tennessee Titans, Sanchez thrived on play-action passes as the team re-established the running game. Sanchez was 12-for-14 for 124 yards and a touchdown off play-action passes. Sanchez, in general, has been much better on play-action passes all year, which fits well with the team's offense. He also hasn't thrown an interception this year outside the pocket, and he's replacing QB Nick Foles, who struggled outside the pocket.

Footballguys view: Sanchez has better athleticism than Foles, and that ability is hyper-critical in this offense. His rushing ability helps keep defensive ends honest as they crash in. Sanchez can also extend plays and keep his eyes downfield as a passer.

  Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald progressing    Wed Nov 26, 01:47 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) felt some progress in his sprained left medial collateral ligament Tuesday, Nov. 25, according to head coach Bruce Arians. Fitzgerald was pretty upset that he was unable to play in Week 12.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Cardinals and for Fitzgerald's fantasy owners here. He was close to playing last week against the Seahawks, and there's a good chance we see Fitzgerald back this week. The Cardinals have a great matchup against a bad Falcons defense.

  Cardinals | Big role for Michael Bush?    Wed Nov 26, 01:46 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Michael Bush fits the role of a big, bruising ball carrier who can be effective in the red zone and at the goal line, and head coach Bruce Arians is hoping Bush can fill the role that RB Jonathan Dwyer had. 'We really miss John,' Arians said. 'I like our backs but we need a guy that's going to pound it in there and close out some games in short yardage and goal-line situations,' Arians said. Bush has 12 touchdowns on 26 goal-line carries in his career. Arians said Bush is in 'great shape' after not having played this year.

Footballguys view: We'll believe it when we see it. Bush failed to play up to expectations during his time with the Bears. We like his all-purpose skill set, but we need to see what he looks like in this current incarnation before we believe there's any sort of large role (or fantasy relevance) with Bush.

  Redskins | Colt McCoy could start past Week 13    Wed Nov 26, 12:58 PM

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy will start past Week 13 if he plays well, although the move may not be permanent.

Footballguys view: Once McCoy was announced as the starter, all bets were off for Robert Griffin III. Reports indicate he's still in the team's long-term plans, but this is also the same coach (Jay Gruden) who said that Griffin was starting in Week 13 on Monday. According Gruden, McCoy gives the team the best chance to win now.

  Broncos | Julius Thomas limited at practice    Wed Nov 26, 12:51 PM

Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas (ankle) was limited at practice Wednesday, Nov. 26.

Footballguys view: Thomas missed the Week 12 game against the Miami Dolphins. He could be back this week for the game against the Chiefs. Check back on his practice status later in the week. If he fully participates on Friday, Thomas should be able to play on Sunday.

  Lions | Calvin Johnson says he's the same guy    Wed Nov 26, 12:51 PM

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson hasn't been putting up big numbers this season, but he denies that he's starting to decline. He's on pace to finish with fewer than 1,000 yards receiving for the first time since 2009, but he continues to say that he's the same player he was when he set the single-season record for receiving yards two years ago. 'I think that the biggest thing you can kind of just take a look at is -- does he still run by people?' head coach Jim Caldwell said. 'The answer to that would be yes. Is he still able to lay out, catch the ball and do things that he normally does? Yes. And I think that that's what matters.'

Footballguys view: Since returning from a sprained ankle, Johnson has also faced three of the league's top defenses. Fantasy owners should be starting Johnson every week. You'll take low days because they're not that frequent, and Johnson has the upside to explode for a monster performance in any week.

  Eagles | Jordan Matthews probable    Wed Nov 26, 12:40 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 26, and is probable for Week 13.

Footballguys view: Matthews has become a must-start for fantasy owners because of his chemistry with QB Mark Sanchez. We like him as a strong WR2/flex play against the Cowboys in Week 13.

  Eagles | Zach Ertz probable    Wed Nov 26, 12:39 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (oblique) fully participated in practice and is probable for Week 13.

Footballguys view: Is it an Ertz week or a Brent Celek week? Will James Casey snare a touchdown to further frustrate you? The Eagles use multiple tight ends, and deciphering which one is the correct play can be a headache. Ertz is a low-end TE2.

  Eagles | Wednesday practice report for Week 13    Wed Nov 26, 12:38 PM

Philadelphia Eagles S Nate Allen (ankle), DE Brandon Bair (elbow), PK Cody Parkey (right groin) and OT Jason Peters (quadricep) all fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 26, and are probable for Week 13. LB Emmanuel Acho (groin) was limited in practice and is questionable.

  Jets | Geno Smith to start in Week 13    Wed Nov 26, 12:13 PM

New York Jets QB Geno Smith will return to the starting quarterback role in Week 13 against the Miami Dolphins, after QB Michael Vick saw only three starts. The feeling around the team is that general manager John Idzik insisted that head coach Rex Ryan start Smith over Vick. 'The main factor is you want to give your guys a chance to win the game,' Ryan said. 'That's the No. 1 factor you look into. But that's what we did. We feel good. Geno last time out had a good game against Miami (in Week 17 last season).'

Footballguys view: Vick wasn't getting it done as the starter. Jets GM John Idzik likely has a hand in this decision. His job (and many others) are on the line, and Smith was supposed to be their franchise quarterback when they selected him in the second round of the 2013 NFL draft.

  Patriots | Tim Wright catches nearly everything    Wed Nov 26, 10:39 AM

New England Patriots TE Tim Wright has 23 catches on 26 targets this season. 'Every time we throw to him it's a touchdown - we'll try to find him more down there,' QB Tom Brady said after Wright's two-touchdown performance in Week 12. 'He does a great job in the coverage and finds the open spots.'

Footballguys view: Wright has been the second tight end the Patriots have been missing since Aaron Hernandez was arrested. Now, Wright is nowhere near what Hernandez was on the football field, but his athleticism allows the team to stretch the field in multiple directions. Wright is a risky start each week because the Patriots have one-off game plans, but when he hits--he hits big.

  Redskins | Colt McCoy officially starting    Wed Nov 26, 09:33 AM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III has officially been benched in favor of QB Colt McCoy in Week 13. Head coach Jay Gruden informed the team Wednesday, Nov. 26.

Footballguys view: The Griffin era may be coming to a close in Washington. Griffin's mechanics have been off this year, and that has been hurting his accuracy. His decision making has been poor as well. McCoy looked good in limited action this year, and his teammates loves him. In two appearances this year, McCoy has completed 85.7 percent of his passes. While some believe Griffin could still be a large part of their long-term plans, McCoy could remain the starter for the rest of the season.

  Redskins | RG3 still part of long-term plan    Tue Nov 25, 11:36 PM

The Washington Redskins are planning on benching QB Robert Griffin III for the Week 13 game against the Indianapolis Colts in favor of QB Colt McCoy. However, Griffin still appears to be part of the team's long-term plan, another source said Tuesday, Nov. 25.

Footballguys view: We're having a little trouble seeing how Griffin would be part of their long-term plans after getting benched during this point in the season. The team gave up so much to acquire him in the 2012 NFL draft that they'll give Griffin every opportunity to be the franchise quarterback he was supposed to be. However, it wouldn't shock us to see Washington draft another quarterback in the 2015 NFL draft to compete with Griffin for the starting job.

  Seahawks | Limited practice for Marshawn Lynch    Tue Nov 25, 09:53 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back) was listed as a limited participant for the second straight day of practice Tuesday, Nov. 25.

Footballguys view: Yep, and nobody is surprised. The Seahawks have a short week in Week 13 as they travel to San Francisco to take on the 49ers. Lynch will be limited this week in practice, but he should be able to carry the full load for the Seahawks this week.

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (knee) was able to take part in a full practice session Tuesday, Nov. 25.

  49ers | Colin Kaepernick praised by OC    Tue Nov 25, 06:43 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is still commanding the offense extremely well, according to offensive coordinator Greg Roman. 'At times, he's playing better than he's ever played, there's no question.'

Footballguys view: While that may be true, there's also plenty of times where Kaepernick is struggling to be below average. Kaepernick is still a 'pure sight' thrower, and he plays with little anticipation when reading defensive coverages. He's still crazy athletic, but Kaepernick hasn't rushed for over 30 yards in a game since Week 6. Fantasy owners should have found a better option by this time of the season.
