Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver James Washington caught his lone target for a nine-yard gain in a 23-20 overtime win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 6. Washington's catch came on Pittsburgh's second drive of the game and he was not heard from again in the contest, despite operating as the No. 3 receiver in the Pittsburgh offense with JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) out for the year. Washington is simply not going to be a major piece of this offense, even with Smith-Schuster sidelined. The Steelers head into their bye in Week 7 before a divisional matchup against the Cleveland Browns in Week 8.
Washington Football Team tight end Ricky Seals-Jones (hip) is expected to play in Sunday's game against the Las Vegas Raiders. Seals-Jones is traveling with the team to Las Vegas after being listed as questionable for Week 13. He missed the last two games due to a hip issue. The 26-year-old is expected to serve as Washington's TE2 behind Logan Thomas, who was activated from injured reserve last Sunday. RSJ has caught 23 passes for 230 yards and two touchdowns over nine games in 2021. Seals-Jones is no longer the top passing catching tight end for Washington with Thomas back and can be left on the waiver wire in most leagues.
New England Patriots running back Brandon Bolden (knee) and kicker Nick Folk (knee) are questionable for Monday's game against the Buffalo Bills. Bolden was a limited participant at practice this week and is set to play Monday Night. The 31-year-old is used as a change of pace back and mainly plays on special teams. Bolden has rushed for 141 yards on 26 carries over 12 games in 2021. If active, he is a dart-throw at best against a Bills defense that is first in rush DVOA. Folk has been limited throughout the season with a knee injury but has yet to miss a game. He's converted 31-of-34 field-goal attempts, and 29-of-33 extra-point tries in 2021. Folk is expected to play and can be used as a streamer against the Bills in Week 13.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has told former teammates and some within the organization that he expects this to be his final season. The 39-year-old is in the last year of his contract and returned in 2021 for one more run at a Super Bowl. This season, he has been solid, throwing for 2,522 yards and a 14:6 TD: INT ratio over 10 games in 2021. His 410 career touchdown passes entering Sunday's game are the eighth-most in NFL history. The Steelers are 5-5-1 and will have to make a late-season push to make the playoffs to give "Big Ben" one more opportunity at a championship run. Mason Rudolph and Dwayne Haskins are the only other quarterbacks on the roster; expect the Steelers to search for Roethlisberger's replacement in the offseason if he does decide to hang his cleats up.
The San Francisco 49ers placed running back Trey Sermon on injured reserve Saturday. In the Week 12 win over the Minnesota Vikings, he sprained his right ankle and was already ruled out for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. The rookie running back will miss the next three games and is eligible to return at the end of the season. It's been a disappointing rookie campaign for Sermon, who has rushed for 167 yards on 41 carries and a touchdown over nine games. He was buried behind Elijah Mitchell, JaMycal Hasty, and Jeff Wilson on the RB depth chart. Sermon is mainly a stash in dynasty leagues and can be safely dropped in all redraft formats.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott (illness) is expected to play in Sunday's game against the New York Jets. The 26-year-old dealt with an illness and missed practice all week. He could have an expanded role as starting QB Jalen Hurt (ankle) was ruled out; the Eagles could lean on the ground game more for Sunday's game. Scott is used in passing down situations and will see more early-down work with Jordan Howard (knee) sidelined. He has rushed for 285 yards on 61 rushing attempts and four touchdowns over 12 games in 2021. Scott is on the flex radar in deep-league formats for Week 13.
New England Patriots tight end Jonnu Smith has surpassed 30 yards in only three games this season. However, one of them was a three-catch performance for 49 yards last week. Despite that, it's tough to believe Smith can replicate that performance against the Buffalo Bills in Week 13. A defense that has allowed the fifth-fewest points to tight ends this season. Smith is normally barely involved in the passing attack and that'll likely happen again. He should be considered a desperation TE2 for this week.
New England Patriots tight end Hunter Henry has been a touchdown-dependent option throughout the season. That will remain the case for the Week 13 matchup against the Buffalo Bills. A defense that has allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points to tight ends this season. Henry has recorded over two receptions only once over his last seven games. It's hard to imagine him having much success against the Bills this week. He'll be a touchdown-dependent TE2 for this Monday night matchup.
New England Patriots wide receiver Nelson Agholor has struggled to make much of an impact this season. In fact, Agholor has recorded more than three receptions in a game only twice this season. That is unlikely going to change against the Buffalo Bills in Week 13. A defense that ranks first in pass DVOA this season. Agholor is not normally targeted frequently and could easily fall out of the gameplan on Monday. Fantasy managers should consider Agholor a desperation deep league option for this week.
New England Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne is normally someone who makes the play whenever he's targeted. Sadly, the yardage isn't always there and that has been his biggest problem this season. Bourne has scored three times in his last three games, so he has been able to keep up his fantasy value. However, he could struggle against the Buffalo Bills defense in Week 13. A defense that has allowed the fewest points to wideouts this season. Bourne could have some low-end PPR value as a flex option, but is tough to trust outside of that.
New England Patriots wide receiver Jakobi Meyers has seen four or more targets in every game this season. However, he has only surpassed 50 receiving yards in one of his last seven games. That being said, Meyers could struggle during the Week 13 matchup against the Buffalo Bills. A defense that currently ranks first in pass DVOA this season. The targets are normally there for Meyers, but he has struggled to do anything with him. That being said, Meyers falls into low-end WR3 territory in PPR formats for this matchup.
