Beat: Miles Austin is Cowboys' WR2
Wednesday, November 20, 2013, 11:38am
It sounds as if Broaddus believes that Austin will usurp the explosive rookie upon his return, which will happen this week against the Giants. Williams is looking like a shaky WR3 heading into Week 12.

Aaron Rodgers can throw a football without any pain.
Rodgers was seen tossing a ball around at MetLife Stadium before Sunday's game against the New York Giants, an exercise he said Tuesday during his weekly radio show on ESPN 540 in Milwaukee was a pain-free experience.
"It felt good," Rodgers said. "I had the adrenaline going."
Rodgers said he also has no pain while running, but he has not attempted to take a snap yet.
"I think the biggest issue is not the pain at this point," Rodgers said. "It is the risk of taking a shot like that and what it would do if [the collarbone] displaced. Obviously, I'd be out for the season and worried about any type of complications going forward."
Rodgers won't play this week and the general thinking is the Packers won't bring him back on a short, Thanksgiving week in Week 13. So, fantasy owners are running out of time if he doesn't play until Week 14.
Mike McCoy: Keenan Allen will play Week 12
Tuesday, November 19, 2013, 10:16am
A day after his team’s disappointing loss to the Miami Dolphins, San Diego coach Mike McCoy provided some updates on players who suffered injuries against Miami.
McCoy said rookie receiver Keenan Allen, who appeared to suffer a knee injury in the second half, should be available this week. Allen played in 49 of the possible 65 plays on offense for the Chargers.
“He’s fine,” McCoy said. “He’ll be playing, which is great.”
We were getting indications Monday that Allen was going to be ok, but now it looks like he's an official go for Week 12. The Bolts continue a stretch of tough passing matchups the next three weeks with Kansas City, Cincy and the NY Giants. However Allen should still be a WR2 option when our rankings come out later this week.
Shane Vereen IN, Brandon Bolden OUT for MNF
Monday, November 18, 2013, 7:21pm
Shane Vereen is active and expected to be "eased in" per Adam Schefter, though that could mean many different things as we've seen in recent weeks with Andre Brown and Percy Harvin. Both Bolden and Washington are inactive, so Vereen should be the primary passing down RB. Combined, Vereen and Danny Woodhead saw an average of 11.6 touches in 2012, so expect 10-13 touches in a bad matchup with the Panthers. Shutdown CB Aqib Talib is also active.

He wasn’t injured. He was benched.
“Reggie didn’t have an easy time getting started today,” Schwartz said. “That had a lot to do with our inability to get points in the second half.”
Bush had 31 yards rushing on 12 carries and caught two passes for 23 yards. He fumbled in the second quarter, which led to a field goal. Joique Bell was getting a bulk of the work in the second half but banged up his foot. Rookie Theo Riddick was on the field for the Lions’ last drive. Bush should be back next week, but the Lions face some tough rushing opponents down the stretch of the fantasy season and the playoffs: W12 Tampa Bay (4th), W13 Green Bay (13th), W14 Philadelphia (16th), W15 Baltimore (3rd), W16 NY Giants (6th).

A blowout victory certainly didn't give Carroll a second thought about going over the 20-snap limit he set. Harvin finished with one catch for 17 yards. The Seahawks have a bye in Week 12, but Harvin should be more involved when Week 13 comes around. Unfortunately, the matchups aren't great ones for the rest of the season as the Hawks next four opponents - Saints (12), 49ers (7), Giants (4) and Cardinals (14) - are all in the top-half of the rankings when it comes to allowing fantasy points to WRs.
Peyton Hillis OUT for Giants

Vick has missed the last two games after he re-aggravated his hamstring in the first quarter of the N.Y. Giants game. In his place, Nick Foles has bounced back from a disappointing performance against the Cowboys and led the Eagles to back-to-back victories.
While Chip Kelly has not deemed Foles his starter, he did intimate on Monday that he planned to stick with the hot hand. But until Vick is 100 percent, there has been no reason for him to name his starter. Vick was limited at practice on Tuesday and isn't expected to be ready for Sunday's game against the Redskins.
Terrelle Pryor has sprained MCL
Sunday, November 10, 2013, 9:39pm
"My knee is banged up," he said.
"I've got a sprained MCL. It just got worse during the week. So I was just trying to come out and play and try to help the team but just didn't feel well today."
Pryor sprained the knee last week and said it got worse during the week leading up to the Giants game. Pryor added he couldn't get any push off his leg and couldn't explode in the passing game. The only other quarterback on the Raiders' active roster is undrafted rookie Matt McGloin out of Penn State, while fourth-round draft pick Tyler Wilson is on the practice squad. The Raiders worked out veterans David Carr, Trent Edwards and Pat White last month.
