Stephen Anderson, Targeted twice

Anderson caught two of two targets for 18 yards in Sunday's loss to the Broncos 28-13.

Analysis: Anderson only saw six of 82 snaps after coming off of two games with no targets. This is just the fourth-string tight end's third game with at least two catches. Primarily Anderson has been a factor on special teams, and with the continual rise of rookie third-round pick Tre' McKitty, it's possible the backup tight end could be phased out of the offense altogether.

Taylor Heinicke, Accurate in win

Heinicke completed 27 of 35 passes for 223 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Monday night's 17-15 win over the Seahawks.

Analysis: Heinicke helped Washington move the ball and dominate possession by playing his usual crafty brand of quarterback. The signal-caller found tailback J.D. McKissic for a 10-yard touchdown prior to halftime, then hit Terry McLaurin for a 20-yard gain on a scoring drive to begin the third quarter. Although he had another touchdown overturned late in the fourth, Heinicke still did enough to lead his team to a third straight victory, putting him in good standing ahead of Week 13's trip to play the Raiders.

Randy Bullock, Struggles against Patriots

Bullock missed his only field-goal attempt and made one of his two extra-point attempts in Sundays 36-13 loss to the Patriots.

Analysis: Bullock missed both of his kicks early in the game. His failed PAT cost the team a chance to tie the game at seven at the beginning of the second quarter. He then missed a 46-yard field goal that hit the upright on the team's next drive. Though Bullock has been accurate for much of the season, he's now missed an extra point in consecutive games and has failed to convert multiple field goals in three of his last four games.

DeAndre Hopkins, Trending in right direction

Coach Kliff Kingsburry said Monday he's hopeful Hopkins (hamstring) will return to the field against Chicago in Week 13, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Analysis: Kingsburry said the same of quarterback Kyler Murray (ankle), but added that he won't confirm anything until he's evaluated both offensive stars at practice. Hopkins is coming off three straight absences, but it looks like he's trending toward a return after also having a bye week to get healthy.

Kaimi Fairbairn, Misses one kick in loss

Fairbairn missed his lone field-goal attempt and made two of two extra-point kicks in Sunday's 21-14 loss to the Jets.

Analysis: Fairbairn's 55-yard attempt was wide left and was the last sniff Houston had at scoring. Fantasy managers looking for placekickers should avoid Fairbairn, who kicks for team that's scored just 12.5 points per game over the last six weeks.
