Date Player
11/17/2017 Larry Fitzgerald, Ari, WR
The Arizona Cardinals signed Fitzgerald to a one-year contract extension on Friday that keeps the 10-time Pro Bowl wide receiver under contract through the 2018 season.

Analysis: In his 14th season, the 34-year old Fitzgerald has 60 catches for 677 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Cardinals in all three categories. He is on pace for 107 receptions for 1,204 yards in 2017 -- no player in NFL history has ever had 100-plus receptions and 1,000-plus receiving yards in a season he began at age 34 or older.
11/17/2017 Chris Boswell, Pit, K
Chris Boswell converted four of four field-goal attempts Thursday as the Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Tennessee Titans 40-17. He made kicks of 45, 28, 50 and 26 yards. Boswell tacked on four PATs.

Analysis: Up to second in the league with 24 field goals made, Boswell is 13 of 14 over his last four games and 24 of 27 for the season. The third-year pro remains one of the better bets for fantasy success at the position.
11/17/2017 Ryan Succop, Ten, K
Ryan Succop converted one of two field-goal attempts Thursday as the Tennessee Titans lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers 40-17. He made a kick of 44 yards, and missed a 48-yarder. Succop tacked on two PATs.

Analysis: Succop continues to be a boom-or-bust fantasy option. He's booted through three or more field goals five times this season and has one or less in Tennessee's five other games. He's trending downward, however, having gone 3 of 5 on 3-point tries over the last three weeks.
11/17/2017 Corey Davis, Ten, WR
Corey Davis had three receptions for 27 yards Thursday in the Tennessee Titans' 40-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Analysis: Davis owners are still waiting for that breakout performance out of the talented rookie, but the 17 targets he's gotten over the past two weeks are an encouraging sign. He's still in the hold category for fantasy purposes.
11/17/2017 Jesse James, Pit, TE
Jesse James had five receptions for 21 yards and one touchdown Thursday in the Pittsburgh Steelers' 40-17 win over the Tennessee Titans.

Analysis: James matched a season high with eight targets on a night fellow tight end Vance McDonald sat with an ankle injury. McDonald is expected to be back for next week's matchup against Green Bay, making neither player a particularly attractive fantasy start.
11/17/2017 Martavis Bryant, Pit, WR
Martavis Bryant had two receptions for 30 yards Thursday in the Pittsburgh Steelers' 40-17 win over the Tennessee Titans.
11/17/2017 Rishard Matthews, Ten, WR
Rishard Matthews had five receptions for 113 yards and one touchdown Thursday in the Tennessee Titans' 40-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Analysis: A 75-yard catch-and-run score enabled Matthews to surpass 100 receiving yards for the first time this season and reach the end zone for the second time in three weeks. Though performances like this one aren't the norm for the steady wideout, he's still a trusty fantasy option even if his upside isn't overly high.
11/17/2017 Antonio Brown, Pit, WR
Antonio Brown had 10 receptions for 144 yards and three touchdowns Thursday in the Pittsburgh Steelers' 40-17 win over the Tennessee Titans.

Analysis: After a few quiet games that coincided with JuJu Smith-Schuster's emergence, Brown showed once and far all he's the best receiver on the Steelers - if not the entire NFL. The all-world wideout registered his fourth double-digit reception effort of the season and eclipsed the 100-yard mark for the fifth time in 10 games, and he's on pace to reach 1,600 yards for the third time in four years.
11/17/2017 Eric Decker, Ten, WR
Eric Decker had three receptions for 37 yards Thursday in the Tennessee Titans' 40-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
11/17/2017 JuJu Smith-Schuster, Pit, WR
JuJu Smith-Schuster had four receptions for 47 yards Thursday in the Pittsburgh Steelers' 40-17 win over the Tennessee Titans.

Analysis: The rookie came in having scored in three straight games and had racked up 290 yards on 12 catches over his past two, but took a back seat to Antonio Brown in this one. Clearly well ahead of Martavis Bryant on the depth chart, Smith-Schuster will be worth considering when the Steelers host Green Bay in Week 12.
11/17/2017 Delanie Walker, Ten, TE
Delanie Walker had six receptions for a season-high 92 yards Thursday in the Tennessee Titans' 40-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Analysis: Walker would have had an even bigger night had he not dropped a pass while wide open in the end zone, which would have been his first touchdown catch of the season. Despite his goose egg in that column, Tennessee's leading receiver has solidified his must-start status with four straight games with at least five receptions and 63 yards.
11/17/2017 Derrick Henry, Ten, RB
Derrick Henry ran for 32 yards on seven carries Thursday in the Tennessee Titans' 40-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
11/17/2017 Le'Veon Bell, Pit, RB
Le'Veon Bell ran for 46 yards on 12 carries Thursday in the Pittsburgh Steelers' 40-17 win over the Tennessee Titans. He added nine receptions for 57 yards.

Analysis: Bell got a few less touches than usual and had an apparent touchdown taken away on a reversal, keeping him out of the end zone for the third time in four games. Still averaging nearly 120 yards from scrimmage per game, he's one of a select group of running backs that doesn't need to score to make a big fantasy impact.
11/17/2017 DeMarco Murray, Ten, RB
DeMarco Murray ran for 10 yards on eight carries Thursday in the Tennessee Titans' 40-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. He added five receptions for 37 yards.

Analysis: PPR players were able to get a little mileage out of Murray's otherwise ineffective performance, but he's been a non-factor as a ball-carrier for several weeks now with an average of 2.8 yards per rush while failing to top 59 yards in five straight games. Though clearly on the decline, the well-used running back still holds some fantasy appeal due to his role and continued ability to produce touchdowns.
11/16/2017 Alshon Jeffery, Phi, WR
Jeffery popped up on the injury report on Thursday due to an ankle issue, though he says he's going to play Sunday night.

Analysis: Jeffery is considered questionable to face the Cowboys.
11/16/2017 Stephen Hauschka, Buf, K
Hauschka did not practice on Thursday due to a hip injury.

Analysis: Hauschka is dealing with some soreness, but he should be able to kick for the Bills this weekend.
11/16/2017 Jordan Matthews, Buf, WR
Matthews was limited in practice on Thursday due to a knee injury.

Analysis: If he's able to play, it should be interesting to see how Matthews does with Nathan Peterman under center. Matthews only had one catch with a struggling Tyrod Taylor at the helm last week.
11/16/2017 Terrelle Pryor Sr., Was, WR
Pryor did not practice on Thursday due to an ankle injury.

Analysis: Big things were expected from Pryor this season, instead his season in Washington has been a fantasy disaster.
11/16/2017 Corey Coleman, Cle, WR
Coleman will start in Week 11 against the Jaguars and is expected to get a full workload as he returns from injury.

Analysis: Coleman is worth keeping an eye on as he should be one of the team's featured receivers.
11/16/2017 Alex Collins, Bal, RB
Collins will remain Baltimore's featured back, according to offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg. Collins had a disappointing showing last week with 43 yards on 13 carries.

Analysis: The Ravens backfield has been one to stay away from in fantasy circles. We don't believe that will change any time soon.
