O Darkwa (NYG)

Orleans Darkwa held below 3 yards per carry in 20-10 loss
Darkwa was limited on the ground against a Washington defense that geared up to shut down the run. Although the Giants' leading rusher and sparkplug of the offense seemed stuck in neutral for most of the evening, he's still a solid flex option in the right matchup.

Fantasy Spin:
Orleans Darkwa had a tough time getting anything going carrying the ball during the Giants' 20-10 Thanksgiving loss to Washington. Darkwa only gained 30 yards on 11 carries, a 2.7 YPC average, and had one catch for 9 yards.

S Vereen (NYG)

Shane Vereen sees the ball four times in Thursday night loss
Vereen continues to have very little impact in the Giants' dreadful offense. As a run-focused team, New York has taken to using more effective between the tackles runners in Darkwa and Gallman over a receiving back like Vereen.

Fantasy Spin:
Shane Vereen managed just four touches during the Giants' 20-10 loss against Washington on Thanksgiving. Vereen carried the ball three times for 18 yards and had one reception for nine yards.

W Gallman (NYG)

Wayne Gallman leads Giants in rushing in Thanksgiving Day loss
Gallman is clearly second in the pecking order behind Orleans Darkwa and ahead of Shane Vereen. However, there just isn't enough fantasy value to hold on to Gallman as the number two back on a struggling offensive unit.

Fantasy Spin:
Wayne Gallman was second on the team in carries but first in rushing yardage on Thanskgiving night. The rookie ran the ball nine times for 37 yards and added two receptions for six yards.

S Shepard (NYG)

Sterling Shepard INACTIVE for Week 12
As expected, Shepard is out for the Thanksgiving Day night cap against the Redskins with lingering migraine symptoms. Roger Lewis and Tavarres King will handle the bulk of the wide receiver work for the Giants in Week 12.

Fantasy Spin:
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (migraine) is officially inactive for Week 12.

M Prater (DET)

Matt Prater connects on all three field goal attempts in losing effort
Prater continues his sensational season converting every field goal under 50 yards this season and 6-of-9 from 50-plus yards. He remains a must-start in every fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Spin:
Matt Prater hit two field goals from 32 yards out and one from 50 yards during the Lions' 30-23 loss to the Vikings on Thanksgiving. Prater also converted both of his extra point tries.
11:37 PM
K Golladay (DET)

Kenny Golladay nets 61 yards on two catches on Thanksgiving
Golladay has had a catch of 40 or more yards in three straight games. He appears to have taken over for TJ Jones in three wide receiver sets. His big play ability makes him a flex option in deep leagues.

Fantasy Spin:
Kenny Golladay caught 2-of-4 targets for 61 yards during the Lions' 30-23 loss to the Vikings. He had a long grab of 41 yards late in the second quarter on a touchdown drive.
11:28 PM
M Jones (DET)

Marvin Jones gobbles up 109 yards and two scores on Thanksgiving day loss
Jones has 16 catches for 194 yards and three touchdowns over the last two weeks and has topped 100 yards in three of his last five games. He appears to have taken over as the top target for Matthew Stafford as the season has progressed and is a must-start in leagues that start three WRs, even in a tough matchup with the Ravens in Week 13.

Fantasy Spin:
Marvin Jones was the star on offense for the Lions on Thanksgiving with six catches for 109 yards and two touchdowns during a 30-23 loss to the Vikings. Jones caught his first TD pass from six yards out late in the first half and then caught a deep 43-yard connection between two defenders in the fourth quarter.
11:17 PM
G Tate (DET)

Golden Tate limited to just 20 total yards in Thanksgiving loss
It was a disappointing outing for Tate who could only average 1.8 yards per catch. Tate has been held under 35 yards in two straight weeks as Marvin Jones has stepped into the lead WR role the last two weeks. Tate and the Lions will get 10 days off before traveling to Baltimore in Week 13 in a tough matchup. Tate may be best left on the bench.

Fantasy Spin:
Golden Tate was targeted eight times during the Lions' 30-23 loss to the Vikings on Thanksgiving. While the targets were there he only hauled in four short grabs for seven receiving yards. He also added two carries for 13 yards.
08:30 PM

Tyron Smith active for Week 12
The Cowboys were terrible while Smith was out with his groin injury. However, after practicing this week in a limited capacity, the All-Pro LT will make his much-needed return against a fierce Chargers pass rush. Smith's presence should allow the Cowboys' offense to once again operate in an efficient manner.

Fantasy Spin:
Dallas Cowboys LT Tyron Smith (groin) is officially active for Week 12.
08:23 PM
D Bailey (DAL)

Dan Bailey active for Week 12
Bailey, one of fantasy football's most productive kickers, will return Thursday against the Chargers, likely sending Mike Nugent packing. Bailey is a top 10 fantasy kicker for Week 12.

Fantasy Spin:
Dallas Cowboys K Dan Bailey (groin) is officially active for Week 12.
08:19 PM
D McFadden (DAL)

Darren McFadden INACTIVE for Week 12
A healthy scratch yet again, McFadden is out for Thursday's game against the Chargers. He is not worth holding at this point in fantasy. Alfred Morris and Rod Smith are the lead RBs in Dallas while Ezekiel Elliott is out.

Fantasy Spin:
Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden is officially inactive for Week 12.
06:39 PM
S Shepard (NYG)

Sterling Shepard ‘unlikely’ to play versus Redskins
Dealing with the lingering symptoms of a migraine that held him out of last week's victory over the Chiefs, Shepard is trending toward an inactive designation for Thursday's game against Washington. In his anticipated absence, Roger Lewis and Tavarres King will both see an uptick in targets. However, even in a plus matchup, neither one are trustworthy fantasy options for Week 12. If desperate in deeper leagues, I'd roll out Lewis over King as his rapport with Eli Manning appears to be strongly intact.

Fantasy Spin:
ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (migraine) is not expected to play in Week 12.
03:56 AM
T Ward (ATL)

Terron Ward provides change of pace in Week 11
The fantasy relevance of Terron Ward is completely tied to the health of Devonta Freeman. On this short week don't be surprised if Freeman misses another game to recover. Nevertheless, Ward doesn't seem to be in line for significant touches against a middle of the road Buccaneers run defense and thus should not be in your starting lineup.

Fantasy Spin:
With Devonta Freeman recovering from the effects of a concussion Terron Ward took a back seat to the more talented Tevin Coleman on Monday night in Seattle. Ward carried the ball six times for 31 yards, his longest being an impressive 17 yard scamper in which he almost reached the end zone. He also caught one pass out of the backfield for 11 yards.
01:42 AM
J Brissett (IND)

Jacoby Brissett (concussion) is expected to play in Week 12
Brissett is a solid option this week against the Titans as the Titans have allowed the third most touchdown passes to opposing quarterbacks this season and rank in the bottom against QB's. TY Hilton and Jack Doyle figure to be heavily targeted in this one.

Fantasy Spin:
Jacoby Brissett is expected to play in Week 12 despite suffering a concussion in Week 10. Brissett had a bye week in Week 11 and is now getting in a full practice on Wednesday making him probable to play. Brissett will be under center against the Titans.

C Palmer (ARI)

Carson Palmer not expected to return in 2017
As expected, Palmer will likely be shut down for the remainder of the year with an arm injury. If Blaine Gabbert continues to play well, he could hold on to the starting job for the rest of the way over an injured but close to returning Drew Stanton.

Fantasy Spin:
Arizona Cardinals beat writer Darren Urban is reporting QB Carson Palmer (arm) is not expected to return in 2017.
