Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb caught seven of his 13 targets for 89 yards in Thursday's win over the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Impact: Lamb had missed the team's previous game against the Raiders on Thanksgiving because he couldn't clear the concussion protocol in time, but he came back to lead the Cowboys in receptions, receiving yards, and targets in Thursday's win over the Saints. Through 11 games, Lamb has 57 receptions on 90 targets for 829 yards and six touchdowns.

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott rushed 13 times for 45 yards and caught two of his three targets for three yards in Thursday's win over the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Impact: The Saints have one of the better run defenses in the league, but Elliott watched fellow running back Tony Pollard average 10.1 yards per carry and find the end zone on his seven carries on Thursday. Despite a knee injury, Elliott's 15 touches are on par with his recent workloads. The production hasn't been there over the last few weeks, however.

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott completed 26 of his 40 pass attempts for 238 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in Thursday's win over the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy managers were likely hoping for more production from Prescott based on his 40 pass attempts, and his six yards-per-attempt mark was actually lower than Saints' quarterback Taysom Hill's 6.4. Prescott and the Cowboys will not have extra time to prepare for a Week 14 matchup against a Washington Football Team defense that is allowing the most points in the NFL to opposing quarterbacks.

The New Orleans Saints D/ST surrendered 377 total yards and 27 points in Thursday night's loss to the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: The Saints' defense played better than the scoreboard suggests. While they did give up 377 total yards and 27 points, seven of those points came on a Cowboys defensive score. For the most part, they held the Cowboys' offense to 20 points despite the yardage allowed while recording a takeaway and a sack. The Saints D/ST will be in play against the Jets in Week 14.

Saints K Brett Maher made 1-of-2 field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point tries in Thursday night's loss to the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Maher ended the night with five points after zeroing out in Week 12. Bring tied to the Saints' offense right now is not good for any kicker in fantasy.

Saints TE Juwan Johnson caught his lone target for a 27-yard gain in Thursday night's loss to the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson had a big 27-yard catch but exited the game shortly thereafter due to a neck injury. While he was able to return, Nick Vannett operated as the primary pass-catching tight end following Johnson's injury.

Saints WR Lil'Jordan Humphrey caught both of his targets for 49 yards and a touchdown in Thursday night's loss to the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Humphrey only drew a pair of targets, but made the most of them, hanging a 2/49/1 line on Dallas in the loss. With the way the Saints spread the ball around on offense, Humphrey is too volatile to trust in fantasy.

Saints TE Nick Vannett caught 3-of-4 targets for 48 yards in Thursday night's loss to the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Vannett was the next tight end up on the Saints on Thursday night following an injury to Juwan Johnson. He ended the game with three receptions and 48 yards. If Johnson is not able to play in Week 14 against the Jets, Vannett will bring some fantasy upside in a favorable matchup.

Saints RB Ty Montgomery rushed four times for 21 yards and caught 4-of-7 targets for nine yards in Thursday night's loss to the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Montgomery has now been targeted seven times in back-to-back games. When Alvin Kamara returns, Montgomery's usage will likely fade, but in the meantime, he is a desperation Flex option in PPR for Week 14 against the Jets.

Saints WR Deonte Harris caught 4-of-8 targets for 96 yards and a touchdown in Thursday night's loss to the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Harris was the Saints' most-productive offense player not named Taysom Hill. While he did go for 96 yards and a touchdown, 70 of them came on one play. Harris has flashed his big-play upside at times this season but is too volatile to trust in the fantasy playoffs.

Saints WR Marquez Callaway caught 1-of-4 targets for 14 yards in Thursday night's loss to the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Callaway was only targeted four times and was out-targeted by Deonte Harris, who led the team with eight along with Tre'Quan Smith and Ty Montgomery who both had seven. Callaway is severely touchdown-dependent on a Saints' offense with quarterback issues.

Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith caught 2-of-7 targets for 15 yards in Thursday night's loss to the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Smith drew seven targets but did the bare minimum with them. While Smith was getting on track, the pivot to Taysom Hill limited him. Smith could get back on track in Week 14 against the Jets but his value is tied to his quarterback.

Saints RB Mark Ingram rushed 10 times for 28 yards and caught 1-of-2 targets for negative yardage in Thursday night's loss to the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Taysom Hill carried the ball 11 times for 101 yards, which cut into Ingram's workload. He was also a non-factor in the passing game. Those opportunities went in Ty Montgomery's direction. T-Mont drew seven targets last night and has now drawn seven looks in consecutive games. Ingram will get the Jets in Week 14 but could see a smaller workload if Alvin Kamara returns.

Saints QB Taysom Hill completed 19-of-41 passes for 264 yards with two touchdowns and four interceptions while rushing 11 times for another 101 yards in Thursday night's loss to the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Hill totaled 365 yards with two touchdowns and four picks. While he did flash his skill set, he was playing through an early injury to a finger on his throwing hand, which didn't help his cause. What also didn't help was the fact that the Saints were down Alvin Kamara, Michael Thomas, Adam Trautman, and their starting bookend tackles. I wouldn't put this game all on Hill, who threw eight passes all season leading up to his Thursday night start. If Hill is healthy to play in Week 14, he is in a prime smash spot at the Jets.

Fantasy Impact: OBJ is coming off his first big game of the year and if he can play offers WR2 upside. If Odell doesn't play then that makes Van Jefferson a very solid WR3/flex against the Jaguars.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson Jr. (quad) didn't practice on Thursday. (Source: Jourdan Rodrigue via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is something to monitor as the Rams have a good matchup for whoever starts at running back. If Sony Michel is called upon to be the lead back then he immediately becomes an RB2.

New Orleans Saints inactives vs. the Dallas Cowboys include RB Tony Jones Jr. (Source: New Orleans Saints on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: With Jones and Alvin Kamara out against the Cowboys, Mark Ingram should see the bulk of the workload with Ty Montgomery acting as the third down back.

Bears QB Justin Fields was limited at practice for the second straight day, putting him on track to potentially return this Sunday. (Source: Chicago Bears on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Fields was unable to play last Thursday on thanksgiving due some fractured ribs he suffered in Week 11, so back-to-back practice sessions are a good sign, albeit in limited fashion. Fantasy managers should monitor Fields' practice level on Friday and have other QB options in place.

Bears Wide Receiver Allen Robinson II did not practice on Thursday due to hamstring injury that has held him out of practice since their bye week in Week 10. (Source: Chicago Bears on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Robinson has missed the last two games and is trending to miss another one this Sunday with him failing to practice on Thursday. Even a limited session on Friday would draw him a questionable tag, although he likely needs a full week of practice before being able to return to the field.

49ers RB JaMycal Hasty (ankle) practiced again on Thursday. (Source: Matt Barrows on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: However, Elijah Mitchell remains the workhorse in this backfield. Hasty isn't on the fantasy radar ahead of a Week 13 matchup against the Seahawks.
