Greg Olsen Held To Four Receptions

Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen was targeted seven times against the Buccaneers on Sunday and finished with four catches for 52 yards. After failing to record a catch against the Jaguars in Week 5 while recording just two in Week 4, the veteran's performance in London was a slight improvement. Nonetheless, Olsen has been a disappointment from a fantasy perspective and should only be expected to produce efficient performances on sporadic occasions throughout the remainder of the season regardless of who is under center for the Panthers.

Peyton Barber Logs 11 Carries On Thanksgiving

Washington Football Team running back Peyton Barber rushed 11 times for 57 yards in a Thanksgiving win over the Cowboys. Barber did most of his damage in the second half as Washington was looking to manage the clock with a big lead. Head coach Ron Rivera seems to prefer Barber to J.D. McKissic on running downs, but both are well behind Antonio Gibson who logged 20 carries. Barber wasn't targeted in the passing game so he lacks fantasy appeal unless something were to happen to Gibson.

J.D. McKissic Quiet In Win Over Cowboys

Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic wasn't very involved against the Cowboys as he logged just three touches in the win. McKissic handled one carry for six yards as head coach Ron Rivera continues to use Peyton Barber as the change-of-pace back from Antonio Gibson. McKissic had been highly involved in the passing game as he logged 29 targets in Alex Smith's first two games as the starter, but McKissic had just four targets last week and just two targets on Thursday, which were turned into 21 yards. McKissic is one of the more game-script dependent backs in the league as his role in the passing game is amplified when Washington is trailing. He'll be a flex-option in PPR formats next week versus Pittsburgh.

Terry McLaurin Logs 92 Yards In Thanksgiving Win

Washington Football Team wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught seven passes for 92 yards in a win over the Cowboys. Thanksgiving may be a national holiday, but for McLaurin, it was just another day at the office as Mr. Consistent put up another solid stat line for fantasy managers. The second-year receiver has seven catches in five of his last six games and has gone over 70 yards in six-straight contests. It would be nice if he found the end zone more often - and fantasy managers can dream of his 100-yard, multi-touchdown effort that feels imminent - but McLaurin is one of the best receivers in football and a true matchup-proof WR1 in fantasy.

Cowboys Defense Struggles Against Washington

The Dallas Cowboys Defense struggled against the Washington Football Team on Thanksgiving, allowing 35 points while recording three sacks and one interception. They could have scored a defensive touchdown on that interception, but Washington wide receiver Terry McLaurin chased down Jaylon Smith and tacked him before he could reach the end zone. The Cowboys defense ended up putting up one fantasy point in this one, unfortunately only one point below their average performance this season. At this point, regardless of matchup, the Cowboys defense cannot be trusted in most fantasy lineups.

Antonio Gibson Feasts On Cowboys

Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson ran wild on Thanksgiving, rewarding fantasy managers with a cornucopia of points. The rookie rusher turned 20 carries into 115 yards and three touchdowns, the second time this season he's rushed for 100-plus yards versus Dallas. Gibson wasn't done there, however, as the former wide receiver added 21 receiving yards on five catches. Gibson now has eight touchdowns in his last five games while taking over the Washington backfield with at least 15 touches in three straight games. He'll have a tough matchup next week versus the Steelers, but Gibson is a matchup-proof RB1 who should be locked into starting lineups.

Greg Zuerlein Makes Three Field Goals On Thanksgiving

Dallas Cowboys kicker Greg Zuerlein kicked three short field goals and an extra point on Thanksgiving. His field goals came from 33, 32, and 28 yards out. Zuerlein has been good when called on this year, but has had fewer chances than expected. His Thanksgiving Day performance was solid, but he's still not being called on for too many long attempts. He could have a similar performance on another Thursday game next week against the Baltimore Ravens.

CeeDee Lamb Drops A Touchdown On Thanksgiving

Dallas Cowboys rookie wide receiver CeeDee Lamb caught five passes for 21 yards in a Thanksgiving loss to the division-rival Washington Football Team. He was targeted seven times. Both his catches and targets were second on the team. Lamb dropped a touchdown in the end zone that left quarterback Andy Dalton visibly upset before the game got out of hand. Lamb will hope for better luck next Thursday against the Baltimore Ravens, assuming the game is not rescheduled.

Dalton Schultz Catches All Five Of His Thanksgiving Targets

Dallas Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz caught all five of the passes thrown his way in a Thanksgiving loss to the Washington Football Team. His five catches were good for a total of 24 yards. Schultz has developed a strong floor as the tight end safety valve for a team that finds itself passing quite a bit, but he has yet to show much of a ceiling. He's a safe but unexciting fantasy starter in most formats.

Michael Gallup Makes Six Catches On Thanksgiving

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup made six catches on eight targets in a Thanksgiving loss to the Washington Football team, gaining 41 yards. His catches and targets tied for the team lead with Amari Cooper, but he fell way behind Cooper's 112 yards. Gallup's six catches were his second most of the season, and his eight targets were the third most he's seen this year. He's shown plenty of talent as a receiver, but his usage continues to be too unpredictable to keep him starting in most fantasy lineups. He's best suited for a best-ball league.

Amari Cooper Eats On Thanksgiving

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper had a good Thanksgiving despite a loss to the Washington Football Team. Cooper caught six passes, gaining 112 yards and scoring a touchdown. He was targeted eight times. The catches and targets tied him for the team lead, and the yards were almost triple what any other Cowboys receiver gained. Cooper's touchdown came on a 54-yard pass from Andy Dalton in the first quarter, and he continued to play well after that. While Dalton is no Dak Prescott, he's shown that he's certainly good enough to keep Cooper and other Dallas pass catchers relevant.
