Buccaneers RB Doug Martin does little in return
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5:49 pm ET) Buccaneers running back Doug Martin did little in his return Week 12. 

Martin carried the ball 11 times, but only gained 27 yards. He managed to haul in one pass, gaining 4 receiving yards. Though the game was mostly close early, and the Bucs had a 10 point lead coming into the second half, the team didn't give Martin a lot of work. 

He'll look for more Week 13 against the Bengals.


Titans WR Justin Hunter comes down with fourth TD reception
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5:48 pm ET) Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter finished Sunday with only four grabs, but he made one of them count for six in his team's 43-24 defeat to Philadelphia in Week 12.

Hunter came down with a 40-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter for his third touchdown of the season. He was targeted a team-high 10 times and finished with four catches for 64 yards and a score. He has 27 catches for 480 yards on the season.

Hunter will look to add to his total in Week 13 against Houston.


Bengals' A.J. Green has career-high 12 catches in Week 12 win
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:47 pm ET) Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green hauled in a career-high 12 catches during a 22-13 win Week 12 at Houston. He finished with a team-high 16 targets and 121 receiving yards.

Green, whose previous career-best was 11 catches, has surpassed 100 receiving yards in two straight games and four times this season. He has 19 career 100-yard games.

Green's best chance for a touchdown Sunday came on a fourth-and-goal play from the 1-yard line at the 9:06 mark of the second quarter. But while he caught a fade pass from quarterback Andy Dalton, Green could not get both feet down for the score.

The Bengals are back in action Week 13 at Tampa Bay.


Bucs' Josh McCown has tough game Week 12
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5:46 pm ET) Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown had a tough game Week 12 against the Bears.

McCown completed 25 of 48 passes for 341 yards and a touchdown. Turnovers were a big issue for him, though. McCown threw two interceptions, and fumbled twice. He lost one of those fumbles. McCown was under constant pressure during the contest, taking five sacks. He managed to find Mike Evans on a 19 yard touchdown pass in the second quarter, but did not find the end zone again versus his former team. McCown also had 12 rushing yards.

McCown will look for more Week 13 against the Bengals.


Ryan Mallett flops in second start
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5:45 pm ET) Texans quarterback Ryan Mallett struggled badly in his second start in Week 12, a 22-13 loss to the Bengals.

Mallett, who had two touchdowns in a win a week ago, fell apart in Sunday's game, tossing one interception without finding the end zone. He completed fewer than half of his 45 passes as well, while racking up just 189 yards in the game.

Mallett looked competent in his first career start last week, but couldn't get anything going this week. With bye weeks done, Fantasy owners should have little reason to look his way in Week 13 against the Titans.  


Titans' Delanie Walker goes off for 155 receiving yards Week 12
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5:42 pm ET) Titans tight end Delanie Walker returned from a concussion and put together a monster performance in Sunday's 43-24 defeat to Philadelphia in Week 12.

Walker broke past Emmanuel Acho and came down with a career-long 68-yard reception in the second quarter. He was targeted nine times and finished with five catches for 155 yards. He has 667 receiving yards and four touchdowns on the season.

He'll look to keep rolling Week 13 against Houston.


Jeremy Hill shines in Giovani Bernard's return
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5:42 pm ET)  Bengals running back Jeremy Hill continued to run the ball well in Week 12 against the Texans, as he outshone incumbent starter Giovani Bernard in his return from an injury.

Hill rushed for 361 yards in three games in Bernard's absence, and kept on running against the Texans, racking up a team-high 87 yards and a touchdown. Meanwhile, Bernard managed just 45 yards in the game on just one fewer carry, and didn't do much to make up the gap in the passing game.

The Bengals kept the carry split very even Sunday, and that could be the case moving forward, which might not be the best outcome for either player's value. The Bengals led early and faced little resistance from the Texans' offense, which allowed them to run the ball 43 times total.

If the Bengals are stuck playing from behind moving forward, opportunities to run the ball extensively could be much harder to come by. Still, they should be working from ahead often yet again in Week 13, with the Buccaneers on the schedule, so both Hill and Bernard might be worth starting yet again. 


Another TD for Eagles DST
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5:40 pm ET) After scoring seven touchdowns in their first five games, the Eagles DST had only two in its next five. But it got back on track Week 12 against Tennessee with wide receiver Josh Huff returning the opening kickoff 107 yards.

The Eagles weren't so bad defensively either, allowing 24 points on 351 yards. They recorded five sacks, giving them 35 in their last eight games, recovered two fumbles and intercepted a pass. But in terms of Fantasy production, the touchdowns have come to define the Eagles DST.

Unfortunately, defensive and special teams touchdowns are difficult to predict from week to week, which is why the Eagles DST remains a viable play despite a so-so matchup Week 13 at Dallas. Just understand you're playing with fire every time you use it.


Dolphins offensive tackle Ja'Wuan James suffers injury
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5:39 pm ET) One of the Dolphins most valuable players left Week’s 12 game against the Broncos when offensive tackle Ja'Wuan James exited the game with a stinger. His return is questionable.

Texans' Alfred Blue has modest outing following 156-yard outburst
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:37 pm ET) Texans running back Alfred Blue started a second straight game Week 12 vs. Cincinnati with Arian Foster still sidelined due to a groin injury. However, Blue had a more modest performance in a 22-13 loss after rushing for a career-high 156 yards last week.

Blue was held to 46 rushing yards on 16 carries Sunday. His longest run went 9 yards. He added three catches for 20 yards in the loss.

Blue still doesn't have a rushing touchdown in 11 games. The Texans are back in action Week 13 vs. Tennessee.
