Impressive Washington rookie running back Antonio Gibson loves playing the Dallas Cowboys, Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray's shoulder injury is concerning and Colts backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett is a vulture. Here's a look back at Week 12's games:



Texans 41, Lions 25: Brandin Cooks is a borderline WR1 with Will Fuller suspended for the rest of this season.

Football Team 41, Cowboys 16: Rookie Antonio Gibson has produced 29% of his carries (40), 38% of his yards (243) and 36% of his touchdowns (four) this season in two games against Dallas.

49ers 23, Rams 20: It's almost like Sean McVay writes Darrell Henderson Jr., Cam Akers and Malcolm Brown on tiny pieces of paper, folds them and places them in a hat before every half to determine who will get the lion's share of the carries in this offense.


Falcons 43, Raiders 6: It's neck-and-neck between Derek Carr and Alexander Mattison for most disappointing fantasy week of the season, and both came against Atlanta. Carr only had 215 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception against a very beatable pass defense while Mattison finished with 30 total yards and 11 touches the one game he started for an injured Dalvin Cook in Week 6.

Bills 27, Chargers 17: So much for easing Austin Ekeler back into action. A ridiculous 16 targets (11 receptions) and 129 total yards foretells a big finish to this campaign.

Giants 19, Bengals 17: Brandon Allen managed only 136 yards on 29 attempts, so yeah, consider Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins boom-or-bust options going forward.

Titans 45, Colts 26: If Indianapolis' backfield situation already wasn't maddening, backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett has vultured three touchdowns in the last three weeks.
