NFL Recent Player News
|12/2/2016||Eddie Royal, Chi, WR|
|Royal is questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers due to a toe issue.
Analysis: Royal didn't practice all week, so it certainly doesn't appear as though he'll play.
|12/1/2016||Dak Prescott, Dal, QB|
|Dak Prescott was 12 of 18 for 139 yards and threw one touchdown pass Thursday in the Dallas Cowboys' 17-15 win over the Minnesota Vikings. He did not throw an interception, fumbled once and was sacked three times. Prescott added 37 rushing yards on six carries.
Analysis: This was not Prescott's most productive effort but he still led the Cowboys to victory, which is what the team wants but something his fantasy owners care little about.
|12/1/2016||Cole Beasley, Dal, WR|
|Cole Beasley had two receptions for 23 yards Thursday in the Dallas Cowboys' 17-15 win over the Minnesota Vikings.
Analysis: Beasley remains a decent WR3 or flex option in fantasy circles but only use him when needed or based on strong matchups.
|12/1/2016||Matt Asiata, Min, RB|
|Asiata ran for 30 yards on six carries Thursday in the Minnesota Vikings' 17-15 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He added one reception for -3 yards.
Analysis: Asiata is pretty much touchdown dependent, which doesn't help his fantasy owners much.
|12/1/2016||Jerick McKinnon, Min, RB|
|Jerick McKinnon ran for 41 yards on nine carries Thursday in the Minnesota Vikings' 17-15 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He added five receptions for 14 yards and one touchdown.

|Ezekiel Elliott ran for 86 yards and one touchdown on 20 carries Thursday in the Dallas Cowboys' 17-15 win over the Minnesota Vikings. He added four receptions for 19 yards.

|Kai Forbath converted three of three field-goal attempts Thursday as the Minnesota Vikings lost to the Dallas Cowboys 17-15. He made kicks of 48, 36 and 33 yards.

|12/1/2016||Adam Thielen, Min, WR|
|Adam Thielen had seven receptions for 86 yards Thursday in the Minnesota Vikings' 17-15 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
Analysis: Thielen might be the Minnesota receiver to own in fantasy circles. He's been targeted 20 times in the last two games.
|12/1/2016||Stefon Diggs, Min, WR|
|Stefon Diggs had eight receptions for 59 yards Thursday in the Minnesota Vikings' 17-15 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

|12/1/2016||Cordarrelle Patterson, Min, WR|
|Cordarrelle Patterson had two receptions for 10 yards Thursday in the Minnesota Vikings' 17-15 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He added two rushes for six yards.

Analysis: He had 23 tackles and one sack in eight games this season.
|12/1/2016||Nick Mangold, NYJ, C|
