C.J. Spiller: "I'm getting back to my old self"
Thursday, November 28, 2013, 10:57am

Buffalo Bills - [Full Article]

The weekend off did a lot of good for a lot of Bills, and that included Bills feature back C.J. Spiller, who has been trying to clear the final hurdle with a high ankle sprain since the first month of the season.

“I feel good,” said Spiller Wednesday. “I definitely feel like I’m getting back to my old self, making the cuts, making that explosion, so just looking forward to seeing how Sunday goes.

When asked to say how close to 100 percent he feels Spiller declined getting into numbers.

“I can’t give percentages,” he said. “I was commanded by my chief not to give percentages anymore, so I’ll just tell you guys that I feel good and I’m ready to rock and roll come Sunday.”

Fantasy Impact:

He has had two weeks to heal and has a terrific matchup with the Falcons who recently got torched by Bobby Rainey and Marshawn Lynch. The Bills still have issues with their offensive line, but that may not matter much this week.

Michael Crabtree activated, expected to play Week 13
Tuesday, November 26, 2013, 11:07am

Adam Schefter on Twitter - [Full Article]

49ers will activate WR Michael Crabtree off PUP today and he is expected to play Sunday.

Fantasy Impact:

This was the sense all along after Crabtree wasn't activated for Monday Night Football against the Redskins. Crabtree will be a bit of a risk to play in Week 13 against the Rams, just based on the possibility of a limited snap count coming off a torn Achilles injury. But if all goes well, snaps should increase going forward. Keep in mind the 9ers play the Seahawks (12th against WRs) Week 14. But, that's followed by much better matchups with the Bucs and Falcons in Weeks 15 and 16. This is also good news for QB Colin Kaepernick as he now has a full arsenal of weapons for the first time this season.

Saints Inactives
RB Darren Sproles
G Jahri Evans
WR Nick Toon
QB Ryan Griffin
DL Tyrunn Walker
S Isa Abdul-Quddus
CB Trevin Wade

Fantasy Impact:

With Sproles out, Pierre Thomas gets a small bump. The Saints are usually careful about not overworking him, so expect Mark Ingram to see 10-13 carries as well. He's a low end RB2 in standard formats. Khiry Robinson and Travaris Cadet may also see a few snaps as well. Lance Moore gets a small bump and looks like a WR4/flex option in a great matchup against the Falcons. Kenny Stills was already a Sneaky Start given the matchup.

Beat: Michael Crabtree likely limited upon return
Thursday, November 21, 2013, 10:39am

Matt Barrows, Twitter - [Full Article]

When asked when 49ers WR Michael Crabtree might make his return, beat writer Matt Barrows guessed that he would play "a dozen or so snaps" in Week 13.

Fantasy Impact:

The 49ers play the Seahawks, Buccaneers and Falcons to close out the fantasy season, so Crabtree may not be of much use until Week 15 at the earliest, and even then he'll be potentially dealing with Darrelle Revis. There's not much reason to hold onto Crabtree at this point, but it's possible that he produces in the fantasy playoffs if things progress quickly.

Fantasy Impact:

With a game on Thursday against the Saints, the Falcons are likely letting Gonzo rest up.
