Joseph Randle establishes his place in the hierarchy
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9:03 pm ET) With the Cowboys up big and DeMarco Murray somewhat limited following a hand injury, the Cowboys turned to their backups for an increased role in Week 16 against the Colts, and it was Joseph Randle who had the most to gain.

Lance Dunbar mostly remained in his usual role, finishing the game with two receptions and two rushes for 14 all-purpose yards, while Randle saw his role increase in a big way. Randle rushed the ball a season-high 13 times, and though he managed just 37 yards, you had to come away from the game pleased to know exactly where he falls in the hierarchy.

It wouldn't be a surprise to see Murray limited even more in Week 17, with a playoff spot locked up. Randle was expected to see the larger share than Dunbar, but it was still good to see confirmation of that. Keep an eye on how the Cowboys plan to use Murray this week, because Randle could be a solid starting Fantasy option in Week 17 against Washington.


Giants get offensive contributions Week 16
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9:02 pm ET) The Giants got a slew of offensive contributions in their 37-27 win at St. Louis. Among them, tight end Larry Donnell caught four of five targets for 42 yards, wideout Preston Parker caught all three of his targets for 32 yards and tight end Daniel Fells hauled in two passes for 20 yards.

Backup running back Orleans Darkwa ran four times for 21 yards, including a 12-yard touchdown, and secured both his targets for 17 yards.

They'll all play the Eagles in Week 17.


Rueben Randle goes off for a career-high 132 yards, TD
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8:57 pm ET) Giants receiver Rueben Randle caught six passes for a career-high 132 yards and a touchdown in the Week 16 win at St. Louis. It was only the second 100-yard game this season for Randle, who's up to three touchdowns.

Randle caught each of his targets. He started the game after being benched the two previous weeks for being late to meetings.

Randle will try to finish strong Week 17 against the Eagles.


Cowboys still feed DeMarco Murray heavily
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8:53 pm ET) Despite undergoing surgery less than a week ago, the Cowboys still got running back DeMarco Murray 20-plus carries Sunday, in a 42-7 win over the Colts in Week 16.

Murray played with a protective pad on his hand, but didn't seem too troubled by it. The fumble-prone back extended his streak of games without putting the ball on the turf to seven games, despite carrying it 22 times. He managed to rush for just 58 yards, but found the end zone for the 12th time in the win.

The Cowboys clinched a playoff spot Sunday, but they will still be fighting for seeding in Week 17. Still, they might want to take advantage of the opportunity to limit his workload against Washington. Keep an eye on the team's plans throughout the week, but Murray proved Sunday he is well worth starting as long as he plans on playing. 


Seahawks' Marshawn Lynch sidelined with upset stomach
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8:52 pm ET) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch did not start Week 16 due to an upset stomach.

Robert Turbin received the start with Lynch on the sideline. He missed the entire first quarter due to the injury, and his status remains undetermined. Turbin has received five carries and Christine Michael has carried the ball twice with Lynch out. 


Nothing special for Raiders DST
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8:50 pm ET) The Raiders may have upset the visiting Bills in Week 16, allowing 24 points on 321 yards, but their DST didn't have much to show for it in Fantasy. They were a little light on big plays, recording two sacks and two interceptions.

The Raiders DST finished with eight Fantasy points in standard CBSSports.com leagues, which was actually one of its better performances on the year. It has scored double-digit Fantasy points only twice all season.

You should know better than to use it in Fantasy, particularly with the matchup it has Week 17 at Denver.


Rookie RB Andre Williams punishes Rams in Week 16
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8:50 pm ET) Giants rookie running back Andre Williams powered his way to 110 yards on 26 carries in Sunday's win at St. Louis. Williams (5-11, 230) showed his brute strength on a 45-yard run in the third quarter when he ran over Rams safety Rodney McLeod.

This was Williams' second 100-yard game during his team's three-game win streak.

Williams handled the bulk of the carries with Rashad Jennings out with an ankle injury. With Jennings iffy for Week 17, Williams could get another big workload against the Eagles.


Lamar Miller closing the season out strong
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8:45 pm ET) The Dolphins have mostly looked to limit running back Lamar Miller's touches this season, as he entered Week 16 with fewer than 20 touches in all but one game so far. He blew past that mark Sunday against the Vikings, and showed just what he can do in a 37-35 win.

Miller rushed the ball a season-high 19 times, and consistently had productive runs, racking up 92 yards with a long of just 14. The story was similar in the passing game, as he had five receptions for 58 yards, with a long of just 18. It was his best receiving game of the season, to go along with his second-best rushing game.

Miller has already rushed for a career-high 984 yards, and seems all-but assured of surpassing the 1,000-yard mark in the finale. He also has eight total touchdowns, after rushing for just three in his first 29 games, showing he can be an all-around back.

Assuming the Dolphins don't bring anyone in to compete for the job, Miller could be a borderline first-round value for the 2015 Fantasy season. In the near team, however, he's got a tough matchup to close out the season against the Jets, though he did have 12 Fantasy points against them in a Week 13 matchup. 


Bills DST underwhelms with favorable matchup
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8:43 pm ET) Having scored double-digit Fantasy points (according to standard CBSSports.com scoring) in seven of its previous eight games, the Bills DST seemed like a gimme Week 16 at Oakland, which had allowed the fourth-most Fantasy points per game to DSTs this season. But for whatever reason, the defense didn't show up, allowing 26 points on 347 yards in a surprise loss for the Bills.

The points and yardage weren't even the biggest problem. The big plays that had carried the Bills DST in recent weeks, like the three touchdowns in its previous four games, were nowhere to be found. The Bills had just one sacks and zero takeaways.

The timing of this performance is all the incentive you need to sit the Bills DST for Week 17 at New England. With that matchup, it would have been a tough call otherwise.


Eli Manning throws for a season-high 391 yards, 3 TDs
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8:36 pm ET) Giants quarterback Eli Manning picked apart the Rams in Week 16, completing 25 of 32 passes for a season-high 391 yards and three touchdowns. It was his second straight outing with three scoring passes and no turnovers.

Manning threw a pair of touchdowns to breakout rookie Odell Beckham and another to Rueben Randle. Manning has seven touchdown passes against one interception in his team's three-game win streak, and he's accounted for 30 scores against 17 turnovers this year.

He'll take on the Eagles to close out his 2014 season.
