Detroit Lions WR Josh Reynolds caught four of seven targets for 69 yards during Sunday's 29-27 win over Minnesota.

Fantasy Impact: On Sunday, Reynolds posted yet another great performance grabbing up four-of-seven targets for 69 yards in the victory. Since gaining the trust of the staff on Thanksgiving, Reynolds has posted 12 targets, 10 receptions, 139 yards, and a touchdown across two games. He remains as a punt flex play in fantasy formats.

The Detroit Lions defense managed to hold the Vikings to 27 points while recording three sacks and recording a fumble recovery in Sunday's victory.

Fantasy Impact: The Detroit Lions defense managed to hold the Vikings to 27 points while recording three sacks and recording a fumble recovery in Sunday's victory. With no strong QB play, the Lions are not getting the turnover numbers to make them worth adding in fantasy formats.

Detroit Lions K Riley Patterson made three of three field-goal attempts and two of two PATs during Sunday's 29-27 win over the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact: Patterson posted his best performance of the season on Sunday. The kicker managed to nail all three field-goal attempts while also knocking in two PAT's. While Patterson is now locked in as the top kicker in Detroit with Austin Seibert (hip) on injured reserve, it will remain a challenge to bet on the Detroit offense down the stretch. Despite the recent success, Patterson will be a risky fantasy option in Week 14 against Denver.

Lions TE T.J. Hockenson caught four of eight targets for 49 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 29-27 win over Minnesota.

Fantasy Impact: It was another day at the office for the veteran TE. Hockenson managed to put together his sixth double-digit fantasy point week out of his last seven games. Even in a low-volume offense, he is putting up consistent fantasy numbers making him a top-8 TE in all formats.

Detroit Lions RB Jamaal Williams rushed 17 times for 71 yards while catching his only target for nine yards during Sunday's 29-27 win over the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact: It was a bit of a disappointing game for the veteran RB. Williams managed to collect 17 carries and just one target in his first game without D'Andre Swift. He was hardly used as a receiver after seeing five targets in Swift's absence last week. However, the fact that Detroit surprisingly played with a two-score lead for parts of this game probably played a role in that development. The Lions get back to work next week against Denver where Williams likely slots in as a top-15 RB if Swift remains out.

Detroit Lions QB Jared Goff completed 25 of 41 passes for 296 yards with three touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's 29-27 win over Minnesota.

Fantasy Impact: Despite not having D'Andre Swift on Sunday, Goff posted his best performance of the season in victory for the Lions. The veteran QB matched a season-high with three touchdowns and posted the second-most yardage with 296 which dates back to week 1. Goff remains as an extremely low-end QB2 in fantasy leagues and isn't worth starting on a weekly basis, even in superflex.

Detroit Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown caught 10 of 12 targets for 86 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 29-27 win over Minnesota.

Fantasy Impact: It was a statement game for St. Brown on Sunday as the rookie hauled in 10-of-12 targets for 86 yards during the Lions' first victory. He was the staple of the offense scoring one-of-three touchdowns on Sunday. He remains a name to monitor in fantasy formats.

Bears K Cairo Santos converted two extra-point attempts in the Bears' 33-22 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Although Santos has scored two or fewer points in two of his last three games, he also has scored at least nine points in three of his last five contests. Overall, his volatility makes him a tough player to trust in weekly fantasy lineups.

The Chicago Bears defense got dominated on Sunday allowing 33 points while only recording one sack during a loss to the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: It was yet another miserable day at the office for the struggling Bears defense. Without star pass rusher Khalil Mack, they managed to get only one sack on Kyler Murray and failed to do anything else to get in the box score. They head to Green Bay next week and are not worth starting.

Chicago Bears TE Cole Kmet caught three passes for 41 yards in the Bears' 33-22 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: It was another impressive outing for the second-year TE. Kmet threw a massive block that allowed veteran Jimmy Graham to score a touchdown. He also managed to catch all three of his targets for 41 yards in defeat against the Cardinals. Over the past four games, Kmet is averaging 51 yards, but he hasn't scored a touchdown all year. His upside will remain capped as long as he continues his touchdown drought.

Chicago Bears WR Darnell Mooney caught five passes for 27 yards in the Bears' 33-22 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: It was a coming back to earth day for Mooney on Sunday. The Cardinals put a focus on stopping the third-year WR as well as putting tons of pressure on QB Andy Dalton. Mooney did manage to somewhat salvage his day collecting 5-of-7 targets totaling 27 yards. He should return as a top-30 WR moving forward next week against the Packers.

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery rushed 21 times for 91 yards and a touchdown while posting eight receptions for 51 yards in the Bears' 33-22 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Montgomery was electric on Sunday posting a season-high in the usage department. The veteran back posted his second-highest carry total of the season at 21 and his highest reception total of the season at eight. Montgomery also saw his first touchdown since getting injured back in week five against the Lions. He should look to build off his strong play as the Bears take on the Packers next Sunday.

Chicago Bears QB Andy Dalton completed 26 of 41 passes for 229 yards with two touchdowns and four interceptions along with two rushes for six yards during Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: It was a miserable day in a cold windy Chicago. Dalton managed to keep the Bears around but also off the scoreboard on several occasions. The veteran started and threw two touchdowns and 229 yards on his way to also throwing four interceptions. Dalton's up and down play was based on an intense amount of pressure from Chandler Jones and the rest of the Cardinals front. We likely will see Dalton again next week as rookie QB Justin Fields continues to heal from a rib injury.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk hauled in 3-of-6 targets for 55 scoreless yards in Sunday's 30-23 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact: It was a slow game for Aiyuk on Sunday as George Kittle (9-181-2) dominated the target share. The second-year wideout didn't even record a catch in the first half of the game but picked up a few chunk plays in the third and fourth quarters. He had a few drops as well, which hurt the 49ers' chances to keep pace with the Seahawks' offense. He was still second on the team in targets and catches and should perform better next week when the Niners take on the Bengals in Cincinnati.

San Francisco 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell carried the ball 22 times for 66 yards and a score to go along with three catches (on three targets) for 18 yards in a 30-23 loss to the Seahawks on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Mitchell once again operated as the 49ers lead back on Sunday, leading the backfield with 22 carries and three catches. He picked up a two-yard score late in the first quarter to give San Francisco a brief 14-7 lead as well. It's worth noting that no other running back on the roster received a carry on Sunday. Mitchell will continue to function as a low-end RB1 next week when the Niners visit the Bengals.

Foster Moreau saw just three targets on Sunday, catching one of them for 34 yards as the Raiders lost to Washington.

Fantasy Impact: Moreau had a big role in his previous game as the team's TE1, but unfortunately fell flat in this one. Fantasy managers will have to monitor Darren Waller's status going into next week, because Moreau could very well find himself as the starter once again.

Hunter Renfrow hauled in nine of his 10 targets on Sunday, totalling 102 receiving yards.

Fantasy Impact: Renfrow once again led the Raiders in receiving, serving as Carr's go-to option with teammate Darren Waller injured. Renfrow remains a volume-based WR2 in this Raiders offense, although a tough matchup against the Chiefs lays ahead next week.

Josh Jacobs saw 22 touches on Sunday, totalling 90 yards and a touchdown as the Raiders lost to Washington.

Fantasy Impact: Jacobs was one of the few bright spots for Las Vegas, reeling in all nine of his targets albeit for just 38 yards. He also scored the team's lone touchdown, making for a pretty impressive fantasy day all things considered. He gets a great matchup against the Chiefs next week, and should remain the team's top receiving back with teammate Kenyan Drake now out for the season.

The Minnesota Vikings D/ST recorded three sacks, one interception, and one fumble in the team's 29-27 Week 13 defeat to the Lions.

Fantasy Impact: The Vikings D/ST produced a pair of takeaways and three sacks, though allowed 29 points, including the game-winning touchdown by Amon-Ra St. Brown. They should serve as a top-15 option for Week 14 against the Steelers.

Derek Carr completed 28 of his 38 passes on Sunday, throwing for 249 yards while adding 24 yards on the ground.

Fantasy Impact: The Raiders offense as a whole really struggled on Sunday, and Carr was certainly a big reason for it. He simply didn't make the throws he was making the week previous and struggled to find a secondary receiving option. He'll get a chance to bounce back when he takes on Kansas City next week.
