- If Wes Welker (concussion) can't face his former team, expect the Denver Broncos' Eric Decker to benefit.
- Matt McGloin seemed to favor Rod Streater (eight targets, six catches) slightly over Denarius Moore (six, two). The Oakland Raiders' first-time starting QB found each in the end zone after two takeaways both created a short field. There's a chance McGloin may supplant Terrelle Pryor (knee) when the incumbent returns.
- With Stevie Johnson (groin) and Robert Woods (ankle) likely to come back after the Bills' Week 12 bye, Marquise Goodwin's nine-look, six-catch effort looks like his ceiling.
- Roddy White's nine targets were his most since Week 4. He only hauled in three but found the end zone. Matt Ryan has dubbed Darius Johnson the Atlanta Falcons' No. 4 target, though, and White will still earn much of the defensive attention alongside Tony Gonzalez. Harry Douglas is this team's new No. 1 in fantasy.
- After Scott Tolzien's second contest, the Green Bay Packers' wideouts still rank Jordy Nelson (nine looks, eight grabs), Jarrett Boykin (eight, six) and James Jones (six, two). When is Aaron Rodgers coming back?
- WW: Cordarrelle Patterson started and had nine looks but only three grabs with Greg Jennings (heel) inactive. The rookie Minnesota Vikings wideout is a pure upside stash in deep leagues. Don't underestimate the impact of Jerome Simpson's legal trouble in opening up more time for the downfield-inclined freshman.
- Santonio Holmes was targeted eight times but only caught two of them. The New York Jets' passing offense can't produce a steady weekly option because their game plan through the air changes so often ... and Holmes is their top guy.
- A.J. Green lost his latest battle with Joe Haden, who held the Cincinnati Bengals stud to two catches for seven yards on five looks.
- Don't buy too heavily into Ace Sanders' 10 looks. Sure, he caught eight of them for 61 yards, but Cecil Shorts complained about not getting enough attention. The Jacksonville Jaguars will probably cater to getting their best remaining catcher open during Week 12.
