Broncos' Virgil Green: Catches one pass against Chicago
Virgil Green was targeted once in Sunday's win over Chicago, recording a nine-yard reception.
Following a three-catch performance in Week 8, Green has been targeted just once in each of the past three contests. In Brock Osweiler's first game under center, head coach Gary Kubiak implemented his multi-tight end scheme to full effect, with 12 of 27 passes directed at tight ends. Eleven of those targets, however, went to Owen Daniels and Vernon Davis. Green saw the field just 26 times as compared to Daniels, 59, and Davis, 50, and is unlikely to benefit much from Denver's adjusted offense.
Buccaneers' Vincent Jackson: Plays 61 snaps in Week 11 return
Vincent Jackson was in on 61 snaps in the Week 11 victory over the Eagles, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The Bucs wasted no time getting Jackson heavily involved in his return from a knee injury. The veteran receiver looked receptive and prepared for the workload thrust upon him, tallying his second-highest reception, yardage, and target totals on the year. Jackson appeared to emerge from the game no worse for wear, and should therefore receive another full complement of playing time in Week 12 versus the Colts.
Cowboys' Gavin Escobar: Catches two passes against Miami
Gavin Escobar collected two catches off of three targets for 20 yards in Sunday's win over Miami.
With Tony Romo back under center Escobar enjoyed his first multi-catch game since, you guessed it, Romo was last under center. Jason Witten continues to be Romo's security blanket at tight end, but Escobar managed to collect four touchdowns on just nine catches in 2014. He may have a similar end-zone focused role in Dallas now with Romo back.
Falcons' Jacob Tamme: Catches one pass against Indianapolis
Jacob Tamme caught one pass off of three targets for 16 yards in Sunday's loss to the Colts.
Sunday snapped Tamme's five-game streak of at least five targets. The reduction in Tamme's role corresponded with Leonard Hankerson's most targets since Week 4 and and Roddy White's most targets of the season. In the week or so before the Atlanta Falcons ' bye, Tamme was emerging as a legitimate starting-caliber tight end. The Falcons' emphasis on its second and third receivers following the bye, however, should suspend those notions at least temporarily so that it can be determined whether the change was game-specific or Atlanta's offense's new look.
Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Plays 64 snaps in Week 11
Evans received the lion's share of snaps once again, and was one of five Bucs to catch touchdown passes from rookie quarterback Jameis Winston on a record-setting afternoon. The second-year standout should continue receiving abundant playing time and targets for the remaining six weeks of the season, although his looks figure to see a slight dip now that Vincent Jackson has returned to the field.
Buccaneers' Charles Sims: In on 28 snaps in Week 11 victory
Sims played a clear second fiddle to Doug Martin on a day in which the Bucs starting tailback tallied 235 yards on the ground. Despite Martin's extraordinary day, Sims still received his second-highest number of carries in a game this season (10), and also posted his second-longest run of 2015 (17 yards). The second-year pro figures to continue receiving 5-8 carries a game most weeks, as well as a handful of looks in the passing game.
Bengals' Mohamed Sanu: Totals 21 yards against Arizona
Mohamed Sanu caught two passes off of three targets for 19 yards and added a two-yard rush in Sunday's loss to Arizona.
Sanu has been consistent in his use all season, seeing between two and six targets every game. He's also been consistently modest in his production, topping 50 total yards just twice and scoring one touchdown. As the Cincinnati Bengals ' third receiver, he is typically thought of as behind just A.J. Green, Marvin Jones and Tyler Eifert in the pecking order. Giovani Bernard's eight-catch game on Sunday served as a reminder, however, that he's more like fifth on the totem pole and unlikely to see enough touches to warrant a fantasy roster spot.
Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch could miss multiple weeks
Marshawn Lynch is expected to need "a couple weeks to see how he does" and "to see if he can recover" from his abdominal injury, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
While the Seattle Seahawks have not provided official word as to Lynch's status following his visit to a specialist, it sounds like they may be content to ride it out for a few weeks and see if Lynch can avoid sports hernia surgery. Schefter reported earlier Tuesday that Lynch will likely miss Week 12. Thomas Rawls is locked in as the primary running back for Seattle while Lynch is out.
Buccaneers' Doug Martin: Plays 50 snaps in Week 11
The Bucs' starting tailback put together his most remarkable performance in three seasons and the second 200-yard outing of his career. Martin should have a clear and unquestioned hold on the majority of backfield snaps over the last six games of 2015 after sharing a significant load of playing time with backup Charles Sims in a handful of games this season.
Cowboys' Cole Beasley: Held to one catch against Miami
Cole Beasley caught one pass off of three targets for 14 yards in Sunday's win over Miami.
In Tony Romo's first game back in the lineup since Week 2, the Dallas Cowboys leaned heavily on the run and 13 of 28 targets went to Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams, leaving Beasley and others short on opportunities. Beasley has now been limited to one or no catches in four of his last five games and, though the other game was a two-touchdown highpoint against Philadelphia, Beasley should remain out of lineups until further notice.
