This week we give thanks to easy matchups, excellent sleepers and strong plays off the waiver wire. Dave Richard previews over nearly 180 players for Week 12 in this week's Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet.
Ajayi carried four times for 13 yards and caught both of his targets for another 23 yards in Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
The rookie couldn't muster much on the ground, but he managed to haul in the first two passes of his NFL career. Ajayi is unlikely to see many touches behind Lamar Miller, although both backs were limited by Miami's inferior time of possession on Sunday. Week 12 will present a road matchup with the tough Jets front, and Ajayi should remain in his supporting role.
Jenkins (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets.
Jenkins practiced in a limited fashion both Thursday and Friday, suggesting that he has a chance to play Sunday. After recording a fantasy-friendly 23 tackles over the Dolphins' first two games this season, Jenkins' has logged 30 tackles in seven games, numbers that restrict his IDP utility to deeper formats.
Landry (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets.
After returning to a limited practice Thursday, Landry did not practice Friday, his second missed session this week. The wideout's status for Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff is thus not yet cemented, though if Landry does play this weekend, he won't have to contend with cornerback Darrelle Revis, who has been ruled out by the Jets.
Although Misi (abdomen) was active he didn't play a snap in the loss to Dallas on Sunday, reports the Dolphins web site.
Apparently Misi just didn't feel right in pregame warmups so the team decided to hold him out of the game. His loss was a big one for Miami as the running game of the Cowboys ended up being more than Miami could handle.
Claiborne (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Miami, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
With Claiborne unavailable, Byron Jones figures to primarily work as a cornerback, which should free up some extra snaps for safeties Jeff Heath and J.J. Wilcox. Claiborne isn't particularly good, so his absence isn't cause to significantly downgrade the Dallas defense.
Romo will miss the remainder of the season after being diagnosed with a hairline fracture to his left clavicle Friday, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Romo's clavicle won't actually require surgery but he'll still need to sit out the rest of the season after sustaining the break during Thursday's loss to the Panthers. Matt Cassel will seemingly take over from here on out as the Cowboys fade out of playoff contention after Romo's second left clavicle injury in just a matter of months.
