Cowboys' Tyrone Crawford: Productive in Thursday's loss
Tyrone Crawford recorded five tackles, including his fourth sack of the season, in Thursday's loss to the Panthers.
He also blocked a late field goal attempt after the game was well out of reach for the Dallas Cowboys . Crawford has been very hit or miss this season, and was held out of the box score entirely the week before against Miami, making him a marginal IDP play at best.
Panthers' Greg Olsen: Catches five passes for 70 yards
Greg Olsen corralled five of his team-high nine targets for 70 yards in Thursday's win over the Cowboys.
Olsen was on the receiving end of the game's biggest pass play of the day (31 yards), but was unable to cash in on either of the Carolina Panthers ' two red zone opportunities. Though he wasn't able to come away with a touchdown for the second straight game, Olsen may have better success finding the end zone in the Week 13 matchup with the Saints, who sport the league's worst pass defense in terms of yards per attempt.
Cowboys' Jason Witten: Four catches Thursday
Jason Witten caught all four of his targets for 36 yards during Thursday's loss to the Panthers.
He's now just two catches away from 1000 for his career, but even if Witten reaches the milestone next week he won't have Tony Romo on the other end of it. Romo re-injured his clavicle Thursday and could be lost for the remainder of the season, leaving Witten as the security blanket for either Matt Cassel or possibly Kellen Moore, if the Dallas Cowboys start looking ahead to 2016. Neither QB is likely to improve the tight end's fantasy prospects, however.
Panthers' Devin Funchess: Catches two passes for 19 yards
Devin Funchess caught 2-of-4 targets for 19 yards in Thursday's win over the Cowboys.
Unsurprisingly, the Carolina Panthers went with a run-dominant approach offensively that resulted in little volume to go around for Funchess and the rest of the Panthers' receiving corps. Though Funchess' output was a rather modest one, his production still outpaced supposed No. 1 receiver Ted Ginn, who saw zero targets. Funchess could potentially have better success in Week 13 against the Saints' paper-thin pass defense, but with the 11-0 Panthers having little incentive to change up their offensive game plan, a large workload can't be guaranteed for the rookie.
Cowboys' Terrance Williams: Four catches in Thursday's loss
Terrance Williams caught four passes on six targets for 38 yards in Thursday's loss to the Panthers.
While the poor performance was bad enough, Williams' value going forward takes a further hit due to Tony Romo re-injuring his clavicle and potentially being lost for the season. The third-year receiver had little success while Matt Cassel was under center while Romo was initially on IR, and if the veteran QB takes over again Williams could be in for a quiet finish to a disappointing year.
Panthers' Jerricho Cotchery: Hauls in five passes for 73 yards
Jerricho Cotchery caught 5-of-6 targets for 73 yards in Thursday's win over the Cowboys.
The Carolina Panthers used a conservative game plan on offense and didn't take many chances downfield, which allowed Cotchery to enjoy plenty of volume on the intermediate routes. He fell two yards short of the end zone on a 12-yard reception late in the second quarter to deprive his fantasy owners of a touchdown, but those in deeper leagues who may have been forced to start Cotchery still have to be happy that he delivered his second-highest yardage output of the season.
Panthers' Mike Tolbert: Picks up four carries in Week 12
Mike Tolbert saw four carries and gained 16 yards in Thursday's win over the Cowboys.
The Carolina Panthers found themselves in two goal-line scenarios during the game, but Tolbert's number wasn't called on either occasion. Instead, Tolbert ended up seeing all of his carries when the Panthers were holding a double-digit lead, as coach Ron Rivera decided to go with a heavy dose of Jonathan Stewart and Cam Newton on the ground when the game was still competitive. Tolbert hasn't recorded more than seven carries in a game this season and can't be counted on to return value in any given week when he doesn't receive a goal-line opportunity.
Cowboys' Dez Bryant: Kept under wraps in Thursday's loss
Dez Bryant (foot/knee) caught two passes on eight targets for 26 yards in Thursday's loss to the Panthers.
He had a shot at a garbage-time TD that would have salvaged his day from a fantasy perspective, but Josh Norman disrupted Bryant just enough to cause the incompletion. Tony Romo was also re-injured in the game and could be lost for the remainder of the year, casting a further shadow over Bryant's value down the stretch of what has been an extremely disappointing season.
Cowboys' Cole Beasley: Six catches and a TD in Thursday's loss
Cole Beasley caught six passes on seven targets for 44 yards and the Dallas Cowboys ' only touchdown in Thursday's loss to the Panthers.
The garbage-time TD was his third of the season. Tony Romo re-injured his clavicle in the game, and Beasley ended up catching his touchdown pass from Matt Cassel, the same QB who helped him rack up 112 yards and two scores in Week 9 against the Eagles. If Cassel remains in the starting role, Beasley could see a bump in value, but the Cowboys could also elect to give Kellen Moore a chance as they begin to look ahead to 2016.
Cowboys' Darren McFadden: Held in check Sunday
The receptions salvaged some of his value in PPR leagues, but otherwise it was a disappointing performance for McFadden. Tony Romo was re-injured in the game and could be lost for the rest of the season, so McFadden could begin to lose touches to Robert Turbin and other, younger backs as the
