NFL Recent Player News
|11/26/2015||Keenan Lewis, NO, CB|
|The New Orleans Saints have placed cornerback Keenan Lewis on injured reserve, ending his season.
Analysis: The move, published on the NFL's transactions list Thursday, ends a frustrating season for Lewis, who has played in only six of New Orleans' 10 games this season because of a nagging hip injury.
|11/26/2015||Cole Beasley, Dal, WR|
|Beasley finished with six catches for 44 yards and a TD during Thursday's loss.
Analysis: Beasley is a risky fantasy play since Matt Cassel will likely start the next game for the last-place 'Boys.
|11/26/2015||Greg Olsen, Car, TE|
|Olsen finished with five catches for 70 yards during Thursday's beating at Dallas.
Analysis: Olsen didn't add to his total of six TD catches but expect him to do that next week against the Saints.
|11/26/2015||Jerricho Cotchery, Car, WR|
|Cotchery finished with five catches for 73 yards during Thursday's beating at Dallas.
Analysis: Cotchery has now gone eight straight games without scoring.
|11/26/2015||Jonathan Stewart, Car, RB|
|Stewart rushed for 68 yards on 21 carries during Thursday's beating at Dallas.
Analysis: Stewart failed to reach the end zone and faces a worse defense next week against New Orleans so start him and reap some major fantasy rewards.
|11/26/2015||Darren McFadden, Dal, RB|
|McFadden was a Thanksgiving turkey on Thursday.
Analysis: McFadden rushed for 11 yards on 10 carries in an inept performance. He caught four passes for 45 yards.
|11/26/2015||Matt Cassel, Dal, QB|
|Cassel may start the last-place Cowboys' next game on Dec. 7 at Washington.
Analysis: Cassel came in for an injured Tony Romo on Thursday and was 13 of 19 for 93 yards and a TD. Fantasy owners should still beware.
|11/26/2015||Cam Newton, Car, QB|
|Newton was sensational in an awesome Thanksgiving effort.
Analysis: Newton had 183 yards passing with several key third-down conversions and another 45 yards rushing. He didn't throw for a TD but ran one in and did his trademark celebration afterward as the visiting Panthers fans roared their approval in Arlington.
|11/26/2015||JC Tretter, GB, C|
|Tretter will make his first start at center Thursday night.
Analysis: Tretter is in since Corey Linsley is out with an ankle injury.
|11/26/2015||Martellus Bennett, Chi, TE|
|Bennett is inactive Thursday against Green Bay.
Analysis: Bennett has bruised ribs.
|11/26/2015||Tony Romo, Dal, QB|
|Romo will miss the rest of the season with a small fracture in the same collarbone that previously sidelined him for seven games this year.
Analysis: Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said on his radio show Friday that Romo's left collarbone would not require surgery after getting hurt in the third quarter of Thursday's 33-14 loss to Carolina. He didn't need surgery after breaking the collarbone in Week 2 at Philadelphia, either. It's the third fracture in Romo's non-throwing shoulder in his nine-year career as the Dallas starter. He missed most of 2010 after getting hurt against the New York Giants.
|11/26/2015||DeMarco Murray, Phi, RB|
|Murray was held to 40 yards on 13 carries by Detroit on Thanksgiving.
Analysis: Another week, another disappointing result for Murray's owners. He's averaging a modest 54.5 rushing yards per game and has only four touchdowns for the season.
|11/26/2015||Jordan Matthews, Phi, WR|
|Matthews had 60 yards and a touchdown on three catches in Thursday's loss at Detroit.
Analysis: The late TD catch salvaged what would have been a third straight unproductive week for Matthews. After gaining 133 yards on nine catches at Dallas in Week 9, he's managed just 10 receptions for 94 yards in three games.
|11/26/2015||Mark Sanchez, Phi, QB|
|Sanchez threw for 199 yards and two touchdowns in the Thanksgiving Day loss at Detroit.
Analysis: Sanchez actually played pretty well on a day in which the Eagles' defense and offensive line was horrendous. He may be heading back to the bench next week with Sam Bradford nearing his return from a concussion.
|11/26/2015||Golden Tate, Det, WR|
|Tate had 50 yards and a touchdown on seven catches in Thursday's win over Philadelphia.
Analysis: The touchdown was only Tate's second of a disappointing fantasy season, though he's now recorded 15 catches over the past two weeks.
|11/26/2015||Matthew Stafford, Det, QB|
|Stafford had a banner Thanksgiving Day, tying a career high with five touchdown passes and finishing with 337 yards in a rout of Philadelphia.
Analysis: He's had an up-and-down season but has got it together after a poor start. Stafford now has 14 TD passes and just four interceptions while completing 65.1 percent of his throws over the last six games.
|11/26/2015||Brandon Boykin, Pit, CB|
|Boykin did not practice Thursday.
Analysis: Boykin has an ankle injury.
|11/26/2015||Ryan Shazier, Pit, LB|
|Shazier did not practice Thursday.
Analysis: Shazier has a knee injury.
|11/26/2015||Aaron Dobson, NE, WR|
|The New England Patriots placed wide receiver Aaron Dobson on injured reserve.
Analysis: The 24-year-old Dobson had 13 catches for 141 yards in eight games this season.
|11/26/2015||Dewey McDonald, NE, S|
|The New England Patriots signed defensive back Dewey McDonald to the 53-man roster Thursday.
Analysis: The 25-year-old McDonald was claimed off waivers from the Indianapolis Colts on Oct. 28 and played in two games before being released Nov. 12. He was signed to the practice squad Nov. 14 and released Nov. 18.
