Broncos' Vernon Davis: Catches two passes against New England
Davis snagged six passes for 68 yards in Brock Osweiler's first start of the season, but saw his role in Denver's offense dip with the return of Emmanuel Sanders. Osweiler's presence under center has allowed head coach Gary Kubiak to utilize more of the multi-tight-end sets that he prefers. Owen Daniels, who has played his entire career with Kubiak, is more likely to benefit, however. Through two games with Osweiler, Daniels has caught nine passes on 11 targets for 117 total yards as compared to eight catches on eight targets for 78 yards for Davis.
Packers' Justin Perillo: Catches two passes against Chicago
Justin Perillo caught two passes off of two targets for nine yards in Thursday's loss to Chicago.
Perillo came out of nowhere for a five-catch game in Week 10 and scored a touchdown. In his two games since, he has been targeted just twice as compared to 12 targets for starting tight end Richard Rodgers. At this point, it seems as though Perillo's solid performance in Week 10 was more flash in the pan than anything fantasy owners can hang their hats on.
Vikings' Jerick McKinnon: Runs for 33 yards against Atlanta
Jerick McKinnon rushed for 33 yards on five carries in Sunday's win over the Falcons.
Sunday represented McKinnon's highest touch and yardage total since Week 7 and snapped a three-game stretch during which McKinnon didn't record a carry. Adrian Peterson tied a season high with 31 touches on Sunday, so it's quite possible that Sunday's carries had more to do with giving Peterson a breather than any sort of change in offensive philosophy. Unless offensive coordinator bumps his head and starts giving McKinnon goal-line carries over Peterson, McKinnon should be left in the free-agent pool.
Eagles' Nelson Agholor: Snags two passes against Detroit
Nelson Agholor caught two passes off of two targets for 15 yards in Thursday's loss to Detroit.
The 2015 first-round pick was held to just eight catches in first five games in the league before going down with an ankle sprain. In his three games since returning to the lineup, he has doubled his reception total for the season. Though he has been able to up his reception rate, Agholor has managed just 58 yards in his three games back and, given the sorry state of the Philadelphia Eagles right now, shouldn't be expected to suddenly start producing big games down the stretch.
Bengals' Mohamed Sanu: Targeted once against Cincinnati
Mohamed Sanu caught one pass on one target for eight yards in Sunday's win over the Rams.
Sunday was the first time this season Sanu wasn't targeted at least twice. He has just four catches in his past three games and has slipped to fifth on the team in targets, catches and receiving yards during the process. He should not be included in any fantasy lineups.
Rams' Brian Quick: Catches two passes against the Bengals
Sunday was Quick's first multi-catch game of the season. The fourth-year receiver has seen 12 of his 20 targets this season come in the past three games with Stedman Bailey out of the lineup. Quick is currently fighting with Wes Welker and Bradley Marquez for catches behind starters Kenny Britt and Tavon Austin. Considering the
Dolphins' Kenny Stills: Sees 10 targets against the Jets
The 10 targets represented a season high for Stills, but, as has been the trend this season, he and Ryan Tannehill struggled to turn those targets into production. Stills has just 20 catches in 2015 season despite being targeted 46 times. Though Rishard Matthews is iffy to play in Week 13, don't assume that Stills will be the primary beneficiary. After an 80-yard performance against the Jets, rookie DeVante Parker could be given a look at the No. 2 spot should Matthews be unable to go.
Texans' Nate Washington: Catches three passes against Saints
Nate Washington caught three passes off of four targets for 43 yards in Sunday's win over New Orleans.
With Cecil Shorts out of the linup in Week 7 and Week 8, Washington caught a combined 13 passes for 201 yards and three touchdowns. He has caught eight passes for 88 yards and no scores in his three games since. DeAndre Hopkins has more than twice as many targets, catches, yards and touchdowns than any other Houston receiver this season. As Washington fights with Shorts over Hopkins' scraps, and manages to receive fewer of them in recent weeks, he should not be considered a legitimate fantasy starter.
Seahawks' Fred Jackson: Catches two passes against Pittsburgh
Fred Jackson caught two passes off of two targets for seven yards and added a four-yard run in Sunday's win over the Steelers.
Jackson has nine touches combined over the past two weeks after garnering just eight in previous four outings. With Marshawn Lynch on the shelf for the next few weeks, Jackson has climbed up a spot on the depth chart, but with a young, fresh starting back and a mobile quarterback under center, it'd be unrealistic to expect too much from the veteran back.
Buccaneers' Bradley McDougald: Plays 71 snaps in Week 12 loss
Bradley McDougald was on the field for 71 snaps in Tampa's Week 12 loss to the Colts, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The Bucs' starting strong safety appeared to have been a tad late coming over to help on T.Y. Hilton's first touchdown, but otherwise seemed to have to played a generally solid game. McDougald has been logging heavy playing time recently, and the extra reps appear to be helping his development. The third-year pro has now tallied career-highs in virtually every defensive category, and could approach 100 tackles by season's end.
