NFL Recent Player News

Team: 

Date Player
12/1/2016 Kyle Rudolph, Min, TE
Rudolph had six receptions for 45 yards Thursday in the Minnesota Vikings' 17-15 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Analysis: Like most tight ends, Rudolph's success depends on if he can find the end zone. He has five TDs this season, but none in the last three games.
12/1/2016 Dak Prescott, Dal, QB
Dak Prescott was 12 of 18 for 139 yards and threw one touchdown pass Thursday in the Dallas Cowboys' 17-15 win over the Minnesota Vikings. He did not throw an interception, fumbled once and was sacked three times. Prescott added 37 rushing yards on six carries.

Analysis: This was not Prescott's most productive effort but he still led the Cowboys to victory, which is what the team wants but something his fantasy owners care little about.
12/1/2016 Cole Beasley, Dal, WR
Cole Beasley had two receptions for 23 yards Thursday in the Dallas Cowboys' 17-15 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

Analysis: Beasley remains a decent WR3 or flex option in fantasy circles but only use him when needed or based on strong matchups.
12/1/2016 Matt Asiata, Min, RB
Asiata ran for 30 yards on six carries Thursday in the Minnesota Vikings' 17-15 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He added one reception for -3 yards.

Analysis: Asiata is pretty much touchdown dependent, which doesn't help his fantasy owners much.
12/1/2016 Jerick McKinnon, Min, RB
Jerick McKinnon ran for 41 yards on nine carries Thursday in the Minnesota Vikings' 17-15 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He added five receptions for 14 yards and one touchdown.

Analysis: McKinnon had a solid game, but he is not a consistent fantasy performer.
12/1/2016 Dez Bryant, Dal, WR
Dez Bryant had four receptions for 84 yards and one touchdown Thursday in the Dallas Cowboys' 17-15 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

Analysis: Bryant has at least 14 points in his last four games.
12/1/2016 Ezekiel Elliott, Dal, RB
Ezekiel Elliott ran for 86 yards and one touchdown on 20 carries Thursday in the Dallas Cowboys' 17-15 win over the Minnesota Vikings. He added four receptions for 19 yards.

Analysis: Elliott has at least 11 fantasy points in every game and appears to be the front-runner for fantasy MVP.
12/1/2016 Sam Bradford, Min, QB
Bradford was 32 of 45 for 247 yards and threw one touchdown pass Thursday in the Minnesota Vikings' 17-15 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He did not throw an interception, didn't fumble and was sacked two times. Bradford also added 10 rushing yards on two carries.

Analysis: Bradford left the game against Dallas after taking a hard hit to the ribcage area while following through on a pass attempt late in the second quarter but returned to start the second half.
12/1/2016 Kai Forbath, Min, K
Kai Forbath converted three of three field-goal attempts Thursday as the Minnesota Vikings lost to the Dallas Cowboys 17-15. He made kicks of 48, 36 and 33 yards.

Analysis: Forbath might be worth looking into for those fantasy players needing kicking help.
12/1/2016 Adam Thielen, Min, WR
Adam Thielen had seven receptions for 86 yards Thursday in the Minnesota Vikings' 17-15 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Analysis: Thielen might be the Minnesota receiver to own in fantasy circles. He's been targeted 20 times in the last two games.
12/1/2016 Stefon Diggs, Min, WR
Stefon Diggs had eight receptions for 59 yards Thursday in the Minnesota Vikings' 17-15 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Analysis: Banged up, Diggs hasn't been the same as he was in the mid portion of the season. He has just eight fantasy points in his last two contests.
12/1/2016 Cordarrelle Patterson, Min, WR
Cordarrelle Patterson had two receptions for 10 yards Thursday in the Minnesota Vikings' 17-15 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He added two rushes for six yards.

Analysis: Other than the occassional kick return for a TD, Patterson has no fantasy value.
12/1/2016 Jaye Howard, KC, DT
Howard (hip) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.

Analysis: He had 23 tackles and one sack in eight games this season.
12/1/2016 Nick Mangold, NYJ, C
Mangold fully practiced Thursday for the first time since spraining his right ankle on Oct. 23, putting him on track to play Monday night against the Indianapolis Colts.

Analysis: Mangold has been forced to sit out four games.
12/1/2016 Aaron Rodgers, GB, QB
Rodgers remained limited on Thursday because of a hamstring injury.

Analysis: Rodgers isn't in danger of missing Sunday's game against the Texans.
12/1/2016 Tyrell Williams, SD, WR
Williams did not practice on Thursday due to a shoulder injury.

Analysis: Williams, who has been a top target for the Chargers passing game, is now in jeopardy of missing Sunday's game against the Bucs.
12/1/2016 Chris Ivory, Jax, RB
Ivory and T.J. Yeldon missed Thursday's practice due to injury.

Analysis: Yeldon is dealing with an ankle injury, while Ivory has a hamstring issue. Denard Robinson could be asking to carry the load in the backfield against the Broncos.
12/1/2016 T.J. Yeldon, Jax, RB
Yeldon and Chris Ivory both missed practice on Thursday due to injury.

Analysis: Yeldon is dealing with an ankle injury. Denard Robinson could be asking to carry the load in the backfield against the Broncos.
12/1/2016 Allen Hurns, Jax, WR
Hurns missed practice again Thursday due to the hamstring injury that he suffered last week.

Analysis: It's certainly beginning to look like Hurns will be out this weekend against the Broncos.
12/1/2016 Kurt Coleman, Car, S
Coleman became the seventh Panther to enter the NFL's protocol when he reported concussion-like symptoms after the Sunday loss in Oakland.

Analysis: If Coleman isn't cleared to play Sunday against the Seahawks, Michael Griffin would start alongside Tre Boston.
