Nick Novak goes for nine points
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7:44 pm ET) Chargers kicker Nick Novak converted field goals of 48 and 23 yards and added three PATs in the win over the Rams. Following that nine-point outing, Novak visits the Ravens in Week 13.

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin struggles in loss
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7:44 pm ET) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III continued to struggle during a 17-13 loss to the 49ers Sunday.

Griffin completed just 11 of his 19 pass attempts for 106 yards and no touchdowns. He also had four rushing carries for 11 yards. In five games, Griffin has yet to throw multiple touchdowns passes in one game.

In Week 13, the Redskins play at Indianapolis.


Eagles TEs Zach Ertz, Brent Celek not doing much in Week 12
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7:42 pm ET) Eagles tight ends Zach Ertz and Brent Celek combined for 78 yards during Sunday's victory over the Titans in Week 12.

Ertz made a brief trip to the locker room with an oblique injury before being cleared by the medical staff to return to the game in the second quarter. He was targeted six times and finished with four catches for 30 yards. Celek five of the seven passes thrown in his direction for 48 yards.

Meanwhile, the No. 3 tight end James Casey came down with a 14-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter. It was his only catch of the game in a 43-24 victory.


Chargers get offensive contributions
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7:41 pm ET) The Chargers got a slew of offensive contributions in their 27-24 win over the Rams on Sunday. Among them, running back Branden Oliver carried six times for 17 yards and caught all four of his targets for 23 yards. Running back Donald Brown caught two passes for 20 yards and had a 7-yard rush.

Tight end Antonio Gates caught both his targets for 14 yards, while tight end Ladarius Green hauled in two of three targets for 34 yards. Wideout Malcom Floyd secured four of five targets for 30 yards.

Wideout Seyi Ajirotutu made an 8-yard grab. They'll all visit the Ravens in Week 13.


Quarterback struggles sapping DeSean Jackson's value
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7:40 pm ET) Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson put together a bit game in Robert Griffin III's first game back from injury, but has been unable to replicate it since.

Jackson had another pedestrian showing in Week 12 against the 49ers, as he was able to haul in just two of Griffin's five passes thrown his way, for 39 yards. He has just 74 yards over the last two games, coming off a five-game stretch where he averaged 115.4 yards per game.

Jackson looked like the type of receiver who might be able to succeed no matter who was throwing him the ball, but Washington's passing game has fallen apart under Griffin, and it was taken Jackson's value from him. At this point, Fantasy owners simply cannot view him as a reliable option. 


Eagles WRs Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper held in check
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7:37 pm ET) Eagles wideouts Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper were each held in check during Sunday's victory over the Titans in Week 12.

Maclin received the same amount of targets as rookie wideout (eight), but finished as the team's second leading-receiver with six catches for 59 yards. Cooper caught only three of the six pass thrown in his direction. He finished with 49 receiving yards in a 43-24 defeat.


49ers' Colin Kaepernick limits mistakes in win
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7:36 pm ET) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick did just enough to beat the Redskins Sunday completing 20 of his 29 passes for 256 yards and one touchdown.

His only touchdown occurred on the team’s first possession when he connected with Anquan Boldin for a 30-yard touchdown pass. Kaepernick ‘s lone mistake was a third quarter interception which snapped his streak of 129 pass attempts without an interception. He also rushed for 14 yards on nine attempts.

The 49ers next play Thursday against Seattle.


Alfred Morris carrying Washington's offense
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7:34 pm ET) Redskins running back Alfred Morris has been the focal point of the offense for much of the last three games, and opposing defenses have been unable to slow him down, as was the case yet again in Week 12 against the 49ers.

Washington's offense was able to do little if Morris wasn't toting the ball, but he put together a huge game against a tough matchup nonetheless. Morris picked up his first 100-yard game of the season, rushing for 125 yards on 21 carries, including a rushing touchdown, his fourth in the last four games.

Morris is averaging just 4.3 yards per carry for the season, the worst total of his career, but seems well on his way to his third straight 1,000-yard season, with 826 yards with five games remaining. With how well he is running the ball, the offense around him might not matter, so consider Morris a must-start Fantasy option moving ahead to Week 13 against the Colts.  


Eddie Royal makes six catches
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7:33 pm ET) Chargers receiver Eddie Royal tied for the team lead with six catches in Sunday's win over the Rams. Royal secured all of his targets and racked up 50 yards, his highest output since Week 4.

He'll visit the Ravens in Week 13.


Eagles WR Jordan Matthews leads the way in Week 12 win
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7:31 pm ET) Eagles wideout Jordan Matthews led his position group in receiving yards for the third consecutive game, leading his team to a 43-24 victory over the Titans in Week 12.

Matthews was targeted eight times and finished with six grabs for 77 yards. He saw a streak of three games with at least one touchdown come to an end. He has 50 catches for 635 yards and six touchdowns on the season.

Philadelphia will face Dallas on Thanksgiving Day.
