Bryan Walters caught one pass for four yards on three targets Sunday against San Diego.
Walters has been surprisingly reliable as a reserve receiver for the Jacksonville Jaguars this season, surpassing the 50-yard plateau three times, highlighted by an eight-catch, 87-yard performance against the Buccaneers on Oct. 11. That said, his role is far too inconsistent on a week-to-week basis to warrant significant fantasy attention. With Rashad Greene and Marqise Lee both back in the mix, Walters' opportunities could be a bit more limited down the stretch.
Graham (knee) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
After head coach Pete Carroll revealed that Graham sustained a torn patellar tendon in his right knee this weekend, it was inevitable that the tight end would land on injured reserve, which officially ends his first campaign with the Seahawks. A consistent threat for Russell Wilson in the passing attack, Graham was unable to match his stature as a Saint, accruing 48 catches (on 74 targets) for 605 yards and two touchdowns across 11 games. For the rest of the season and Seattle's potential appearance in the playoffs, Luke Willson will serve as the top tight end, while Cooper Helfet remains in reserve.
Marqise Lee caught one pass for three yards in Sunday's loss to San Diego.
The oft-injured Lee has now seen time in three straight games, but he's recorded only two catches for 11 yards on six targets over that span. He's in competition with rookie Rashad Greene for snaps in the slot, and Greene saw four targets Sunday, compared to Lee's one. With Julius Thomas, Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns solidified as Blake Bortles' top three targets, both Greene and Lee are ancillary fantasy options at best.
Marcedes Lewis caught one pass for 24 yards in Sunday's loss to San Diego.
Lewis continues to have a quiet season with free agent addition Julius Thomas stepping in as the unquestioned No. 1 tight end. The UCLA product has only 121 yards on 11 catches on the season, while Thomas nearly eclipsed that total on Sunday, as he finished with nine catches for 116 yards and a score. Barring an injury to Thomas, Lewis remains a poor fantasy option in most formats.
Jaguars' Rashad Greene: Targeted four times in loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
Greene caught three Blake Bortles passes for 17 yards in Sunday's loss to San Diego.
The rookie out of Florida State missed several weeks while on IR with a thumb injury, and Sunday's loss marked his second game back. After recording one catch for two yards last Thursday against Tennessee, Greene followed up with another modest effort as he continues to share snaps with Marqise Lee in the slot. Greene also served as the Jags' primary punt returner, amassing 28 yards on three returns (long of 15 yards).
The Patriots have waived Chris Harper , ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.
Harper, who did not catch a pass Sunday against the Broncos, muffed a punt in the contest and he's now likely headed to the Patriots' practice squad assuming he clears waivers. The move could be a good sign with regard to Danny Amendola's Week 13 status, though we suppose it's also possible that it could foreshadow the signing of another depth wideout.
Jaguars' Denard Robinson: Logs three carries in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
Denard Robinson carried three times for 23 yards and had one catch for nine yards in Sunday's loss to San Diego.
Robinson has served as the Jags' second running back of late, but the team got away from the ground game in the second half Sunday, as Robinson and starter T.J. Yeldon combined for only 12 carries. With Yeldon firmly entrenched as the starter, Robinson is unlikely to hold much fantasy value down the stretch, barring an injury.
Rishard Matthews looks iffy for Sunday's game against the Ravens because of what the Miami Herald describes as cracked ribs.
With Matthews limited to just three snaps this past Sunday, rookie DeVante Parker stepped in to log 58 Week 12 snaps, a trend that seems likely to continue this coming weekend, given Matthews' decidedly cloudy status.
We'd expect Prater to recover in time for Thursday's game against the Packers, a notion supported by the fact that there's been no reports yet of the Detroit Lions adding another kicker to their roster.
