Date Player
11/25/2014 Rich Ohrnberger, C
Ohrnberger has been placed on season-ending injured reserve with a back injury that will require surgery.

Analysis: Ohrnberger started seven of the eight games he played this season.
11/25/2014 Robert Woods, WR
Woods notched the best game of his career Monday night in Buffalo's win over the Jets.

Analysis: Woods hauled in nine catches for a career-high 118 yards and one touchdown, including a one-handed highlight grab in the second quarter. It was Woods' first 100-yard performance.
11/25/2014 Fred Jackson, RB
Jackson returned to the field Monday for the Bills and rushed for his first touchdown since Week 6.

Analysis: Jackson rushed for 32 yards on 10 carries. He and Boobie Dixon will compete for playing time in the Buffalo backfield.
11/25/2014 Boobie Dixon, RB
Dixon rushed 12 times for 54 yards and a touchdown Monday against the Jets.

Analysis: Dixon's score came late in the game, and although he appears to be behind Fred Jackson on the depth chart, Dixon received the most carries of any Bill Monday night.
11/25/2014 Geno Smith, QB
Smith replaced Michael Vick in the third quarter of Monday night's loss to Buffalo.

Analysis: Smith completed 10 of 12 passes for 89 yards, although the outcome was well decided by the time he entered the game. It was Smith's first appearance since Oct. 26.
11/25/2014 Michael Vick, QB
Vick went 7 of 19 for 76 yards, and he was replaced in the third quarter by Geno Smith.

Analysis: Coach Rex Ryan said he noticed Vick hobbling after taking several hits during the game. But regardless of alibi, Vick was decidedly ineffective Monday night. He offers little to no fantasy value at this point in the season.
11/25/2014 Kyle Orton, QB
Orton threw for 250 yards and two touchdowns Monday in Buffalo's convincing win over the Jets.

Analysis: Orton completed 24 of 32 passes and ended with a 115.4 passer rating - his second-highest this season. Orton rebounded from back-to-back defeats to pick up Buffalo's sixth win this season.
11/25/2014 Jace Amaro, TE
Amaro has a head injury and is going through the NFL's concussion protocol.

Analysis: Coach Rex Ryan says Tuesday that Amaro, who leads NFL rookie tight ends with 34 catches for 291 yards receiving, is going through the NFL's concussion protocol. Ryan wouldn't confirm whether Amaro actually has a concussion, but the rookie's status for the Jets' game against the Miami Dolphins next Monday night is uncertain.
11/25/2014 Kellen Davis, TE
The Detroit Lions have released tight end Kellen Davis.

Analysis: Davis played three games for the Lions this season without catching a pass. Detroit was beset by injuries at tight end, but Brandon Pettigrew and Joseph Fauria are healthy now.
11/25/2014 Brian Schwenke, C
The Tennessee Titans have placed Schwenke on injured reserve.

Analysis: Schwenke hurt his left knee in Sunday's 43-24 loss at Philadelphia and had an MRI exam Monday.
11/25/2014 Michael Bush, RB
The Arizona Cardinals signed running back Michael Bush on Tuesday and released Kerwynn Williams.

Analysis: Bush has 809 carries for 3,250 yards and 29 touchdowns along with 104 receptions for 1,010 yards and two touchdowns over a seven-year NFL career. Bush entered the league as a fourth-round pick of the Oakland Raiders in the 2007 draft. He sat out his rookie season because of a leg injury then played for the Raiders from 2008 to 2011 before signing with the Chicago Bears in 2012. He played in 15 games with the Chicago Bears last season before being released in March.
11/25/2014 Connor Barth, K
The Denver Broncos have switched kickers again, waiving first-year pro Brandon McManus and signing Connor Barth, who hasn't kicked in an NFL game since 2012.

Analysis: Barth, 28, won a competition with 38-year-old Jay Feely at the Broncos complex in suburban Denver on Tuesday.
11/25/2014 Brandon McManus, K
The Denver Broncos have switched kickers again, waiving first-year pro Brandon McManus and signing Connor Barth, who hasn't kicked in an NFL game since 2012.

Analysis: Barth, a five-year veteran, and 13-year pro Jay Feely worked out for the team Tuesday, 48 hours after McManus clanked a 33-yard field goal off an upright in Denver's 39-36 win over Miami. The Broncos traded a seventh-round draft pick to the Giants for McManus in August after Matt Prater's suspension. They later released Prater, who signed with Detroit. Solid on kickoffs, McManus was 9 for 13 on field goal attempts.
11/25/2014 Drew Brees, QB
Brees threw for 420 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Monday's loss to Baltimore.

Analysis: Brees had failed to surpass 300 yards in his previous three games.
11/25/2014 Troy Polamalu, S
Barring a setback this week, cornerback Ike Taylor and safety Troy Polamalu will both play on Sunday when the Steelers host New Orleans.

Analysis: Taylor hasn't played since Week 3 due to a broken right forearm, while Polamalu is recovering from a sprained left knee.
11/25/2014 Ike Taylor, CB
Barring a setback this week, cornerback Ike Taylor and safety Troy Polamalu will both play on Sunday when the Steelers host New Orleans.

Analysis: Taylor hasn't played since Week 3 due to a broken right forearm, while Polamalu is recovering from a sprained left knee.
11/25/2014 Andre Smith, T
The Bengals put right tackle Andre Smith on injured reserve with a torn left triceps on Tuesday, ending his season.

Analysis: Smith got hurt during a 22-13 win in Houston on Sunday. He'd missed the two previous games with a sprained ankle.
11/24/2014 Josh McCown, QB
McCown threw for 341 yards and a touchdown for Tampa Bay on Sunday, but also was intercepted twice and lost a fumble.

Analysis: McCown has some fantasy value, especially in deeper leagues because the Bucs can't run the ball. However, he still has issues with turnovers.
11/24/2014 Louis Murphy Jr., WR
Murphy had six receptions for a season-high 113 yards Sunday.

Analysis: Before fantasy players get excited, keep in mind Murphy faced a terrible Bears defense, and that 54 of his yards came on one play that was a result of bad Chicago tackling.
11/24/2014 Vincent Jackson, WR
Jackson caught five passes for 117 yards in Sunday's loss to Chicago.

Analysis: This was just the second time Jackson produced a 100-yard receiving day this season, but it could be a sign of good things to come for his fantasy owners.
