Nick Boyle TE BAL (8) 8 hours ago
Boyle hauled in both his targets for 24 yards in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.
The second-year man was more involved in the offense Sunday than he was in his season debut, seeing eight more snaps and getting his first targets of the year. He brought in both of those targets, but Dennis Pitta was clearly the top receiving option among Baltimore tight ends as he saw 11 targets in 34 snaps. Boyle's primary role seems to be as an inline blocker on run plays. His productivity as a pass-catcher in his rookie season suggests that he could start to see more snaps on passing downs, but Pitta remains the primary pass catching tight end in Baltimore's offense.
Ryan Fitzpatrick QB NYJ (11) 8 hours ago
With Bryce Petty in line to start the final four games of the season, Fitzpatrick is expected to move to the bench, Andy Vasquez of The Record reports.
Coach Todd Bowles made the announcement following Monday's loss to the Colts, a game that Fitzpatrick was benched in favor of Petty after completing just five of his 12 pass attempts for 81 yards to go along with an interception. Since Fitzpatrick is currently on a one-year contract with New York, he heads into the final weeks of the season with an uncertain future.
Bryce Petty QB NYJ (11) 8 hours ago1 Comment
Petty will start in the final four games of the season, Andy Vasquez of The Record reports.
Coach Todd Bowles made the proclamation at Monday night's press conference following their lopsided loss to the Colts. Petty actually relieved Ryan Fitzpatrick in the game, but threw two interceptions and only converted 11 of his 25 pass attempts for 135 yards and one touchdown. Even though Petty has been unspectacular in his previous starts this season, he will have a somewhat favorable matchup Sunday against the 49ers, a team that has held its opponents to 246.9 passing yards per game this season.

Ladarius Gunter DB GB (4) 10 hours ago
Gunter tallied three tackles Sunday against the Texans.
Gunter has appeared in every game for Green Bay this season and sits seventh on the team with 43 tackles. While his nine defended passes leads the team, injuries to key members of the Packers' secondary had propelled Gunter into an expanded role at times. Looking ahead, the Miami product could begin seeing slightly less playing time with Damarious Randall (groin) and Makinton Dorleant (hamstring) back in the fold.

Hopkins went 3-for-3 in field goal attempts and 2-for-2 in extra point attempts in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.
Hopkins rebounded after a dismal Thanksgiving performance in which he was 2-for-4 on field goal attempts. His 53-yard field goal was the longest this season. He'll look to keep it rolling Sunday in Philadelphia.
Ryan Grant WR WAS (9) 10 hours ago
Grant recorded two receptions for 20 yards in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.
The reserve wideout doesn't see the field often, but made the most of his opportunities Sunday. He now has six receptions on the year for a total of 51 yards, with three of those receptions coming in the past three weeks. He may see an even bigger role in coming weeks as Kirk Cousins continues to spread the wealth this season.
Chris Thompson RB WAS (9) 10 hours ago
Thompson ran the ball twice for 24 yards while hauling in one reception for 21 yards in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.
Thompson has become more faded out of the running attack ever since rookie Rob Kelley took over as starter. However, he continues to prove to be an asset in the passing game, especially in third down situations. Look for him to rebound from a below average week next Sunday against the Eagles.
