Date Player
12/12/2017 Kenny Britt, Cle, WR
Less than a week after being released by the Browns, Britt has agreed to a two-year contract with the Patriots.

Analysis: Britt goes from the outhouse to the penthouse in a matter of days, with the Patriots the latest team to attempt to resurrect the disappointing wide receiver's career. After eclipsing the 1,000-yard mark during a comeback 2016 campaign with the Rams, the 29-year-old produced just 18 catches for 233 yards and two touchdowns in nine games with Cleveland. He'll still start out behind Brandin Cooks, Chris Hogan and possibly Danny Amendola on the Pats' depth chart.
12/12/2017 Byron Marshall, Was, RB
The Redskins have placed Marshall on IR due to a hamstring injury.
12/12/2017 Tevin Coleman, Atl, RB
Coleman not not practice Tuesday because of a concussion and his status is questionable for Monday night against in Tampa Bay.

Analysis: Coleman has seen his usage decrease significantly since Devonta Freeman has returned from his concussion, totaling 20 offensive touches for 81 scrimmage yards in the last two games, so he may not have much more value anyway.
12/11/2017 Trevor Siemian, Den, QB
Siemian will start for Denver in its Thursday night game in Indianapolis.

Analysis: Siemian has thrown for 200 yards in each of his last two starts and just one TD pass - hardly fantasy relevant.
12/11/2017 Le'Veon Bell, Pit, RB
Le'Veon Bell ran for 48 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries Sunday in the Pittsburgh Steelers' 39-38 win over the Baltimore Ravens. He added nine receptions for 77 yards and one touchdown.

Analysis: Bell has produced more than 50 fantasy points in the last two weeks, which is pretty remarkable. Most of his damage in the last three has come as a pass catcher, with him gaining 271 yards through the air.
12/11/2017 Alex Collins, Bal, RB
Alex Collins ran for 120 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries Sunday in the Baltimore Ravens' 39-38 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. He added two receptions for 46 yards.

Analysis: This was a career-high rushing night for Collins, who will go into next season a solid RB1 in fantasy circles.
12/11/2017 Chris Moore, Bal, WR
Chris Moore had three receptions for 48 yards and one touchdown Sunday in the Baltimore Ravens' 39-38 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
12/11/2017 Mike Wallace, Bal, WR
Mike Wallace had three receptions for 72 yards Sunday in the Baltimore Ravens' 39-38 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
12/11/2017 Antonio Brown, Pit, WR
Brown had 11 receptions for 213 yards Sunday in the Pittsburgh Steelers' 39-38 win over the Baltimore Ravens.

Analysis: Over the last four games, Brown has totaled 39 catches - on 59 targets - and 627 yards. There is no receiver better.
12/11/2017 Vance McDonald, Pit, TE
Vance McDonald had four receptions for 52 yards Sunday in the Pittsburgh Steelers' 39-38 win over the Baltimore Ravens.
12/11/2017 Martavis Bryant, Pit, WR
Martavis Bryant had six receptions for 33 yards Sunday in the Pittsburgh Steelers' 39-38 win over the Baltimore Ravens.
12/11/2017 Joe Flacco, Bal, QB
Joe Flacco was 20 of 35 for 269 yards and threw two touchdown passes Sunday in the Baltimore Ravens' 39-38 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. He threw one interception, didn't fumble and was sacked one time.

Analysis: This wasn't a bad game for Flacco, who threw for same amount of yards and TDs for a second consecutive week.
12/11/2017 Jeremy Maclin, Bal, WR
Jeremy Maclin had three receptions for 27 yards Sunday in the Baltimore Ravens' 39-38 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
12/11/2017 Javorius Allen, Bal, RB
Javorius Allen ran for 25 yards and two touchdowns on six carries Sunday in the Baltimore Ravens' 39-38 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. He added two receptions for 32 yards.

Analysis: There was a Buck Allen sighting. It appears Allen is a more favorable offensive option than Danny Woodhead at this point.
12/11/2017 Ben Roethlisberger, Pit, QB
Roethlisberger was 44 of 66 for 506 yards and threw two touchdown passes Sunday in the Pittsburgh Steelers' 39-38 win over the Baltimore Ravens. He did not throw an interception, didn't fumble and was sacked three times. Roethlisberger added five rushing yards on one carry.

Analysis: Big Ben became the first quarterback in NFL history to top 500 yards passing three times. His 66 attempts also are a career high.
12/11/2017 Eli Rogers, Pit, WR
Eli Rogers had three receptions for 33 yards Sunday in the Pittsburgh Steelers' 39-38 win over the Baltimore Ravens.
12/11/2017 Jesse James, Pit, TE
Jesse James had 10 receptions for 97 yards Sunday in the Pittsburgh Steelers' 39-38 win over the Baltimore Ravens.

Analysis: The third-year pro set career highs in both receptions and yards in this contest. It helps when your QB throws the ball 66 times.
12/11/2017 Justin Tucker, Bal, K
Justin Tucker converted his lone field-goal attempt Sunday - a 47-yarder - as the Baltimore Ravens lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers 39-38. Tucker tacked on five PATs.
12/11/2017 Danny Woodhead, Bal, RB
Danny Woodhead ran for seven yards on two carries Sunday in the Baltimore Ravens' 39-38 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. He added four receptions for 29 yards.
12/11/2017 Chris Boswell, Pit, K
Chris Boswell converted four of four field-goal attempts Sunday as the Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Baltimore Ravens 39-38. He made kicks of 45, 43, 24 and 46 yards. Boswell tacked on three PATs.

Analysis: Boswell made a 46-yard field goal with 42 seconds left for the winner. It was the fourth time in the last five games that a late Boswell field goal gave Pittsburgh a win.
