|11/30/2015||Markus Wheaton, Pit, WR|
|Wheaton broke out for a career-high 201 yards and a touchdown on nine catches in the Steelers' 39-30 loss at Seattle on Sunday.
Analysis: Wheaton never topped 100 yards in his 38 previous games, so this is clearly an aberration. Don't expect him to be this involved in the offense. However, it showed that he could become a solid addition to a bench for fantasy teams.

|Rawls rushed for 81 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries in the Seahawks' 39-30 win over Pittsburgh on Sunday.
Analysis: Rawls continues to thrive in place of the injured Marshawn Lynch. He's reached the end zone in each of the last two games, totaling 290 yards on 51 attempts. He's getting a great deal of the work load and that's not going to change with Lynch out.

|Fitzgerald matched his season high with 10 catches for 66 yards in the Cardinals' 19-13 win at San Francisco on Sunday.

|Palmer completed 26 of 40 passes for 271 yards in the Cardinals' 19-13 win at San Francisco on Sunday.

|11/30/2015||Chris Johnson, Ari, RB|
|Johnson left Sunday's meeting with San Francisco with a knee injury.

|11/29/2015||Jeremy Hill, Cin, RB|
|Hill left Sunday's game with an ankle injury and didn't return, though he later tweeted that he was "fine."
Analysis: Hill had been playing well before exiting, running 16 times for a season-high 86 yards and also catching a 14-yard pass.
|11/29/2015||Mike Iupati, Ari, G|
|Iupati is active for Arizona as he returns to the Bay Area to play his former 49ers, who drafted him 17th overall in 2010.
Analysis: Iupati left in free agency in March and didn't play against San Francisco in September. He was slowed by a knee injury early in the season, and sustained a stinger in a win against the Bengals one week after a neck injury at Seattle required him to leave on a stretcher and be hospitalized.
