Tony Romo a lock going forward
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12:59 pm ET) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo threw a season-high four touchdown passes Week 12 against the Giants, giving him four in a game for the first time since he had five in Week 5 last year. But nearly one-fourth of his Fantasy owners missed out on it, having sat him for ... well, who knows?

Who would be justifiable? Peyton Manning, sure. Andrew Luck, Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady also make sense. I could even understand Drew Brees, given his history. But beyond that is a pretty tough sell. True, even with this performance, Romo ranks only 13th among quarterbacks in standard CBSSports.com leagues, but it's pretty bunchy after the top three. And if Brady gets elevated for recent performance, so should Romo.

Beginning in Week 3, he has thrown for multiple scores in every game but one, making him the ninth-best quarterback in standard CBSSports.com leagues during that stretch. And that's with him missing a game due to injury. Going by Fantasy points per game instead of just total points, he jumps two more spots to seventh, and two of the quarterbacks ahead of him are Ben Roethlisberger, whose numbers are mostly the product of an insane two-game stretch, and Russell Wilson, who has tailed off significantly after a hot start.

Now look at Romo's matchups coming up. The Eagles, Bears and Eagles again give him three bottom-five pass defenses over the next three weeks, and the Colts in Week 16 aren't far off. Safe to say he should be a fixture in your lineup going forward.


Texans' Ryan Fitzpatrick expected to replace injured Ryan Mallett
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12:57 pm ET) With reports surfacing that Texans quarterback Ryan Mallett suffered a torn pectoral muscle Sunday against the Bengals, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick could be in line to receive his 10th start of the season Week 13.

In nine starts, Fitzpatrick has thrown 11 touchdowns and nine interceptions, but was benched in favor of Mallett after Week 9.


Broncos LB Danny Trevathan set to return to practice Monday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12:36 pm ET) Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan will start practicing on Monday, according to the NFL Network. Trevathan suffered a fractured kneecap Week 6 against the Jets, which caused him to go on the short-term IR list. The Broncos hope to have him back on the 53-man active roster in time for Week 14 against the Bills. 

Panthers guard Amini Silatolu taking reps at offensive tackle
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12:29 pm ET) With Panthers offensive tackle Nate Chandler out for the season, ESPN.com reported guard Amini Silatolu has begun working at offensive tackle. Silatolu has started seven games for the Panthers at guard this season.

After giving up nine sacks against Atlanta, the Panthers are trying to find players that can work together at various positions.


Better times ahead for Giants DST?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12:24 pm ET) For the fourth time in five games, the Giants gave up more than 30 points in Week 12, allowing 31 on 385 yards to the visiting Cowboys. They had just two sacks and one fumble recovery.

The Giants haven't had more than two sacks in a game since Week 2 against Arizona, but of course, they've had some tough matchups in recent weeks, such as the Seahawks, Colts and now the Cowboys twice.

Because the Giants DST ranks 29th at the position in standard CBSSports.com leagues, you may not pay it a second thought on the waiver wire, but it does have some especially favorable matchups coming up, going against the Jaguars, Titans, Redskins and Rams over the next four weeks. At least for that first matchup, it's worth a flier in all leagues.


Panthers' Star Lotulelei and Andrew Norwell miss practice Monday
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12:16 pm ET) The Panthers were without defensive tackle Star Lotulelei and offensive guard Andrew Norwell for Monday’s practice, reports ESPN.com.

Lotulelei suffered an ankle injury Week 10 and was inactive the following week. Norwell is dealing with a hamstring injury he aggravated Week 11.


Cowboys defense unspectacular Sunday
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12:15 pm ET) Coming off their bye, the Cowboys didn't have a standout defense performance Week 12 at the Giants, giving up 28 points on 417 yards. They had just two sacks and one interception.

The Cowboys DST was at its best against the Jaguars in Week 10, scoring 14 Fantasy points in standard CBSSports.com leagues, but of course, every DST is at its best against the Jaguars. For the season, it ranks just 21st at the position. With the Eagles coming to town in Week 13, you should probably avoid the Cowboys DST in Fantasy.


Seahawks DST keeps rolling
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12:04 pm ET) The Seahawks continued their improved defensive play with an especially strong showing against the Cardinals and backup quarterback Drew Stanton in Week 12. They allowed just three points on 204 yards and have given up an average of 15.4 points on 263.6 yards in their last five games.

They didn't have an abundance of big plays in this one, but they did have three sacks and one interception. They still have yet to record more than three sacks in a game this season.

Averaging 13.8 Fantasy points in its last five games, the Seahawks DST has made a comeback in standard CBSSports.com leagues after a slow start. Of course, matchups have had something to do with it. They don't have an especially favorable one Week 13 at San Francisco, but it's not the kind that should scare you away either.


Cardinals keep piling up the sacks
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11:56 am ET) Facing a Seahawks team that had surrendered just 20 sacks coming into the game, the Cardinals recorded a season-high seven Week 12 at Seattle, giving them 17 in their last three games after recording eight in their first eight.

It was a strong defensive performance overall. They allowed just 19 points, their fourth straight game giving up fewer than 20, on 293 yards. In terms of Fantasy production, the Cardinals DST has averaged 16.1 points in its last seven games, making it the second-best unit for the season. With another favorable matchup Week 13 at Atlanta, it's looking like a no-brainer in Fantasy.


Browns QB Brian Hoyer after win: 'I feel like I let the team down'
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11:49 am ET) Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer was not pleased with his three-interception performance following Sunday's last-second win over the Falcons in Week 12, per Cleveland Plain Dealer. Two of his three interceptions came on passes intended for Josh Gordon in the final five minutes of the game.

"It's great to win but I'm really disappointed in myself," said Hoyer. "I feel like I let the team down even though we won. That's not how I play. Obviously it's great to get a win and be 7-4, but I have to do a better job."

Hoyer has cracked the 300-yard mark for the third time in his last four games. He has three touchdowns and six interceptions over that strech.
