Dallas' Alfred Morris a non-factor in loss to Chargers
Dallas Cowboys running back Alfred Morris had only 9 carries for 36 yards, adding 1 reception for 13 yards in Thursday's 28-6 defeat at the hands of the Los Angeles Chargers.
Morris was out-touched by Rod Smith in this one, but that seemed to be more about game-script as they played from behind than it was about a change in roles for either of the players, and Morris will likely continue to serve as the team's lead back until Ezekiel Elliott returns.
numberFire's models project Williams for 12.4 carries, 64.3 yards and 0.5 touchdowns on the ground, as well as 2.8 receptions for 22.4 yards through the air in Week 13 against Washington.
Rod Smith the only Cowboy to find the end zone in Thursday's Thanksgiving thrashing
Dallas Cowboys running back Rod Smith ran the ball 9 times for 41 yards and 1 touchdown, adding 2 receptions for 7 yards in Thursday's 28-6 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.
Smith actually out-touched Cowboys' lead back Alfred Morris 11-10 in this one, though that was likely more about game-script than Smith jumping past Morris on the depth chart. Darren McFadden was a healthy scratch in this one though, and Smith remains the clear-cut number-two back in Dallas until Ezekiel Elliott returns.
In 3 games since Zeke's suspension, Smith has averaged 6.7 carries for 22.0 yards and 2.0 receptions for 7.3 yards, scoring 1 touchdown in that stretch.
Cowboys' Dez Bryant held in check in blowout loss
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was held to 3 receptions for 37 yards as the Cowobys lost to the Los Angeles Chargers on Thanksgiving.
This is a serious slump for Dez, who has not found the end zone since Week 7, topping 50 yards in only 2 of his 5 games in that time.
numberFire's models project Bryant to turn 9.7 targets into 4.7 receptions, 69.2 yards and 0.4 touchdowns against Washington in Week 13.
Tyrell Williams finds the end zone for the Chargers on Thursday
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Tyrell Williams had 58 yards and 1 touchdown on 2 receptions in Thursday's blowout win over the Dallas Cowboys.
Williams hasn't seen much usage this year, catching more than 2 passes in a game only once since Week 4, and this was his fifth consecutive game with 2 or fewer receptions.
Williams is now averaging 2.5 receptions, 40.0 yards and 0.2 touchdowns per game on the season.
Hunter Henry turns in a strong showing in Chargers' Thanksgiving victory
Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry caught 5 passes for 76 yards and 1 touchdown in Thursday's win over the Dallas Cowboys.
Those are both the most receptions and yards that Henry has notched in a game since Week 6, which is also when he last found the end zone. He was second on the Chargers (behind Keenan Allen) in both receptions and yards in this game.
Henry is now averaging 2.8 receptions, 38.2 yards and 0.3 touchdowns per game on the season.
Melvin Gordon has an inefficient game, Chargers blow out Cowboys anyway
Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon turned 21 carries into only 65 yards with no touchdowns, adding 3 receptions for 23 yards in Thursday's 28-6 win over the Dallas Cowboys.
Gordon's numbers have been all over the place this year, but he has been a workhorse, now boasting at least 20 touches in 6 of his 11 games.
Gordon is averaging 63.5 yards, 17.1 carries (3.7 yards per carry) and 0.5 touchdowns per game on the ground, as well as 24.8 yards and 0.4 touchdowns per game through the air.
