C. J. Fiedorowicz TE HOU 3 Hrs
Fiedorowicz scored Houston's lone touchdown in a 25-13 win over Baltimore in Week 16. He was on the receiving end of a trick play, which featured a ball thrown by running back Arian Foster.
Little has happened for Fiedorowicz in his rookie season. His two catches for 12 yards Sunday gives four receptions for 28 yards on the season. He's getting more playing time of late with Garrett Graham (ankle) sidelined, but if the Texans are throwing to a tight end, it's usually Ryan Griffin on the receiving end.
Randy Bullock K HOU 3 Hrs
Bullock set a franchise record, kicking six field goals in the Texans' 25-13 win over the Ravens in Week 16.
Bullock continued his season of redemption in 2014. The 19 points against Baltimore vaulted him to 127 points (30-for-35 FGA, 37 XP) for the season, tying him for the league lead in scoring. If you recall, Bullock nearly lost his job last season and was challenged in training camp.
Fitzgerald Toussaint RB BAL 7 Hrs
Toussaint had four carries for 11 yards, adding two catches for 20 yards on five targets, in Sunday's 25-13 loss to the Texans.
Toussaint worked ahead of Bernard Pierce, who lost two yards on his only carry. With Lorenzo Taliaferro (foot) out for the season, Toussaint may get another shot to work as Justin Forsett's primary backup, in a Week 17 matchup with the porous Cleveland run defense. Forsett dealt with an ankle injury during Sunday's game, and he was limited to just 19 yards on 10 carries. If there's any indication of Forsett's Week 17 status being in question, Toussaint would become an interesting commodity. That being said, it's worth noting that the Baltimore running game has looked awful the past two weeks, and the team lost both of its starting tackles to injury during Sunday's loss.
Torrey Smith WR BAL 7 Hrs
Smith caught 5-of-12 targets for 59 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 25-13 loss to the Texans.
The Ravens got awful play from both their quarterback and offensive line, so Smith was the closest thing to a bright spot, even though he managed fewer than five yards per target. While yet to top six receptions or 98 yards in a game this season, Smith has a career-high 10 touchdowns, and he's also drawn a ton of pass interference penalties. He'll face a talented but injury-riddled Cleveland secondary in Week 17.
Justin Forsett RB BAL 8 Hrs
Forsett gained 19 yards on 10 carries, adding four yards on 13 receptions, in Sunday's 25-13 loss to the Texans.
Forsett had a massively disappointing game for the second straight week, and while the breakout running back isn't entirely absolved of blame, his previously excellent offensive line is suddenly looking like a weakness. Adding to the problem, Baltimore lost both of its starting tackles to injury during the second half of Sunday's game. Forsett gets an excellent Week 17 matchup with the Browns, but his stock has taken a hit the last couple of weeks. Also worth noting: Forsett briefly exited Sunday's game with an ankle injury.
John Brown WR ARI 8 Hrs
Brown caught 3-of-8 targets for 54 yards in Sunday's 35-6 loss to the Seahawks.
Brown saw some targets before garbage time, but all three of his receptions came in the final 11 minutes. He has two or more catches in 14-of-15 games this season, but he's only reached 75 yards once, and hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 10.
Michael Floyd WR ARI 8 Hrs
Floyd caught 2-of-8 targets for 41 yards in Sunday's 35-6 loss to the Seahawks.
Floyd made a 32-yard catch over Richard Sherman in the third quarter, when Ryan Lindley surprisingly threw a perfect pass to beat strong coverage. The play was an aberration, as the Cardinals otherwise found it tough to complete even shorter passes, with Lindley finishing just 18-of-44 for 216 yards. Floyd tied John Brown for second on the team in targets, trailing only Larry Fitzgerald's 11. Remarkably disappointing since Week 3, Floyd will be a shaky option for Week 17 against the 49ers, even if Drew Stanton (knee) returns.
Larry Fitzgerald WR ARI 8 Hrs
Fitzgerald caught 4-of-11 targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 35-6 loss to the Seahawks.
Fitzgerald had trouble separating from the excellent Seattle defensive backs, and Ryan Lindley struggled badly with his accuracy. While his 11 targets led the team, Fitzgerald is far from a safe option for Week 17, with Arizona facing another defensive-minded division foe in San Francisco. On the bright side, there's perhaps some chance Drew Stanton (knee) will be able to play. As bad as he's looked at times this season, Stanton is easily preferred to Lindley.
Kerwynn Williams RB ARI 8 Hrs
Williams (knee) had two carries for four yards in Sunday's 35-6 loss to the Seahawks.
One week after splitting the workload with Stepfan Taylor, Williams was not targeted in the passing game, while Taylor got the starting nod, 11 carries and two receptions. Marion Grice had one carry and four targets (one catch), with Robert Hughes also getting one carry. After Taylor managed just 19 yards on those 11 carries, the Arizona backfield situation will likely be hard to predict for a tough Week 17 matchup with the 49ers. As the final score indicates, the Cardinals were completely incompetent on offense Sunday night.
Robert Woods WR BUF 8 Hrs
Woods had seven catches for 52 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-24 loss to the Raiders. He was targeted nine times.
Woods was having a very quiet day until Kyle Orton found him for a 30-yard touchdown with 1:09 left in a Buffalo rally that ultimately fell short. His quiet December (averaging just 36.7 yards per game) continues.
