The Chiefs have had a hard time stopping the run this season, and expect AFC West rival Denver to exploit that with a heavy dose of C.J. Anderson. Also riding with the Bengals, Dolphins and Cardinals -- all favorites this week.
The questionable status of wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (knee) headlines the injury report submitted by the Cardinals for their Sunday game against Seattle. Ed Stinson (toe) was the only player on the list ruled out for Week 12.
Cardinals coach Bruce Arians told SiriusXM NFL Radio that the team signed running back Michael Bush because "we need a guy who's going to pound it in there and close out games for us." Bush, 30, scored 25 touchdowns over the past four seasons before getting released by the Bears.
Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald told reporters he's "highly likely" to return to action Week 13 against the Falcons, according to the Arizona Republic. Fitzgerald sat out Week 12 against the Seahawks because of a sprained left MCL.
If Drew Stanton's performance Week 11 against Detroit, when he threw for 306 yards and two touchdowns, got Fantasy owners thinking the Cardinals wouldn't really miss Carson Palmer at quarterback, his performance Week 12 at Seattle was a dose of reality. He threw for just 149 yards and an interception.
Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington has been suspended for the entire 2014 season for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. He was suspended four games last season for violating the same policy.
Maybe for some PPR owners, Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman never lost must-start status, but with his role limiting his scoring potential and capping his yardage from week to week, he needs to have bunches of catches to keep that distinction. And for a while there, he wasn't getting them.
