NEW YORK (AP) The NFL has moved the Dec. 11 game between the Miami Dolphins and Los Angeles Chargers to ''Sunday Night Football.''

The game will kick off at 8:20 p.m. EST on NBC, with the matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos moving to 4:05 p.m. EST on CBS.

It will be the second meeting between quarterbacks and 2020 draft classmates Tua Tagovailoa and Justin Herbert. They faced each other in Miami during their rookie season. Tagovailoa, who went fifth overall to the Dolphins, has bragging rights after a 29-21 over the Chargers, who took Herbert with the sixth-overall selection.

This will be the Chargers' third Sunday night appearance of the season. They had fourth-quarter leads against San Francisco on Nov. 13 and Kansas City on Nov. 20 before losing. The Bolts also are scheduled to host the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday night on Jan. 1 in Week 17, but with the defending Super Bowl champions decimated by injuries, that game also could be flexed.

The Dolphins will be playing on Sunday night for the second time this year. They beat Pittsburgh on Oct. 23.

Waivering: Week 13

Player Notes
JaMycal Hasty Nov 29 9:30pm ET
JaMycal Hasty

Jacksonville Jaguars running back JaMycal Hasty was impressive in taking over for the injured Travis Etienne Jr. (foot) in Week 12, rushing 12 times for 28 yards and adding five receptions for 67 yards and a touchdown. Etienne went down during the first half, and while the Jaguars claimed he was cleared to return to action, they chose to play it safe with their young star and held him out of the rest of the contest. Of course, it wouldn't come as a huge shock if the Jaguars held Etienne out for a Week 13 matchup against the Detroit Lions after he missed all of the 2021 season with a Lisfranc injury to that same foot. The Jaguars are also likely to get Darrell Henderson Jr. more involved this coming weekend. Treat Hasty as a flex play if Etienne doesn't end up playing against Detroit in Week 13.

Jordan Mason

San Francisco 49ers running back Jordan Mason carried the ball five times for 25 yards in a Week 12 win over the New Orleans Saints. Mason was pressed into action after the 49ers lost Elijah Mitchell to an MCL injury in Week 12. Starter Christian McCaffrey was also dealing with knee irritation during Week 12's win, limiting him to 62.9% of the team's offensive snaps. McCaffrey is likely to play through the injury, but it serves as a good reminder that he has been injured often since the beginning of the 2020 season. The 49ers also have third-round pick Tyrion Davis-Price waiting in the wings. Davis-Price has been inactive since Week 7 but could be active and take some backup carries away from Mason. Mason is a low-end flex play heading into Week 13 against the Miami Dolphins unless McCaffrey is a surprise inactive.

Benny Snell Jr.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Benny Snell Jr. saw his first action of the season in a Week 12 win over the Indianapolis Colts, rushing 12 times for 62 yards and a touchdown while adding a six-yard reception on Monday night. Snell was originally expected to serve as the backup to Najee Harris with Jaylen Warren (hamstring) inactive, but Harris wound up leaving shortly before halftime with an abdominal injury, forcing Snell into the lead-back role. Snell would set up as a mid-range RB3 against the Atlanta Falcons if Harris and/or Warren do not suit up. This is a situation to monitor throughout the week as the Steelers gear up to head down to Atlanta for Sunday's game.

Darnell Mooney

Dynasty | Darnell Mooney will miss the remainder of the season following an ankle injury suffered in week 12 Dynasty Analysis: He'll also likely need surgery to correct the issue but should be healthy for the start of 2023. Following a slow start, the third-year receiver started to show chemistry of late with rising quarterback Justin Fields before suffering the injury. He season ends with a 40/493/2 line while the team has little below him on the receiver depth chart. Found as DLF's WR41, all expectations are that the team will seek to bolster the receiver room during the off-season to address the worst receiver corps. in the NFL.

Ja'Marr Chase Nov 29 9:00pm ET
Ja'Marr Chase

Dynasty | Bengals receiver Ja'Marr Chase is expected to be back on the field in week 13 in a tilt against the Chiefs Dynasty Analysis: Chase's untimely injury was a mid-season blow to fantasy coaches but his return should breathe new life into teams making a late push for the playoffs. His return should also bolster the prospects of quarterback Joe Burrow just in time for a big week game when the Bengals host the Chiefs. Despite missed time, Chase is still a solid bet to surpass 1,000 yards receiving and double-digit touchdowns again. He's listed as DLF's WR2.

Brandon Williams Nov 29 8:30pm ET
Brandon Williams

Long-time former Baltimore Ravens defensive tackle Brandon Williams, who has been waiting for the right opportunity, signed with the Kansas City Chiefs practice squad on Tuesday with the idea of going to the active roster, according to sources. Williams will reunite with defensive line coach Joe Cullen. The 33-year-old nicknamed Big Baby will give the Chiefs some veteran defensive line depth in the trenches the rest of the way. Williams started 13 games for the Ravens last year and finished with 35 tackles (15 solo), four tackles for loss, three passes defensed and a fumble recovery. He was a Pro Bowler with Baltimore in 2018 and has 6.5 career sacks in nine NFL seasons, all with the Ravens.

Von Miller Nov 29 8:20pm ET
Von Miller

Buffalo Bills star pass-rusher Von Miller (knee), who is dealing with a lateral meniscus injury that he suffered in the Thanksgiving Day win over the Detroit Lions, said he's hoping to be ready before the Week 14 game against the New York Jets. "Just going to wait a little bit, wait a little bit, let the swelling go down for about seven to 10 days. And hopefully right before the Jets game, I will be back," Miller said. The 33-year-old was carted off the field in Week 12 and will be re-examined next week, but there's no guarantee he'll be ready to go against the Jets. He avoided a dreaded ACL tear, but Miller is expected to require surgery at some point to address his meniscus tear. Buffalo's defense will still be relevant in fantasy, but they won't have as much upside for however long Miller is sidelined.

Sam Darnold

Carolina Panthers QB Sam Darnold will start in Week 14 after the team's bye, head coach Steve Wilks said on Sunday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Spin: A passing score and log-roll rushing touchdown off his own fumble salvaged what otherwise was a pedestrian outing from Darnold, who totaled just 164 yards through the air. Don't let him anywhere near your lineup or roster until we see much, much more.

Melvin Gordon

Free-agent RB Melvin Gordon (Broncos) was signed to the Kansas City Chiefs' practice squad on Tuesday, Nov. 29.

Fantasy Spin: With Clyde Edwards-Helaire on IR, there's a scenario where Gordon might get some chances with the Chiefs, but he was terrible with the Broncos before being cut and Isiah Pacheco looks solidified as the lead back in Kansas City for now. Gordon is barely worth a speculative hold if you have the space on your roster and/or have Pacheco, but a lot would have to happen for him to return any kind of value.

Dawson Knox Nov 29 7:20pm ET
Dawson Knox

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox has been a frustrating player to roster all season long. He has only surpassed 50 receiving yards twice this season. Last week, Knox finished with two receptions for 17 yards in the win over the Detroit Lions. Now, he'll get an even tougher challenge against the New England Patriots in Week 13. It's unlikely that Knox has much success against this elite secondary. He'll be a low-end TE2 for Thursday Night matchup.

Buffalo Bills LB Von Miller (knee) says he won't play in Week 13 but is hopeful he'll be back by Week 14 after suffering a torn lateral meniscus injury recently. 'I do feel like I can play through that,' Miller said on Tuesday, Nov. 29. 'So, I'm just gonna wait a little bit, wait a little bit, let the swelling go down for about seven to 10 days. And hopefully, right before the Jets game, I will be back.'

Gabriel Davis Nov 29 7:10pm ET
Gabriel Davis

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Gabe Davis has been putting together better performances this season. There have been a handful of duds for Davis, but hopefully he has turned a corner. Last week, Davis hauled in four of his five targets for 38 yards in the win over the Detroit Lions. Now, he'll get a tough test against the New England Patriots defense in Week 13. Luckily, Davis has seen five or more targets in every game since Week 3. The Bills have shown that they want to keep him involved in the offense. However, it seems unlikely that he'll have a ton of success against the Patriots defense. He should be considered a low-end WR3 or flex option this week.

Isaiah McKenzie Nov 29 7:10pm ET
Isaiah McKenzie

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie put together a strong performance against the Detroit Lions last week. The 27-year-old finished with six receptions on 10 targets for 96 yards and one touchdown in the win. Coming into the game, McKenzie had not surpassed 40 receiving yards since Week 3. This was a nice outing for McKenzie, but fantasy managers shouldn't jump on the bandwagon. He'll have a tough matchup against the New England Patriots in Week 13. The slot receiver hasn't proven himself yet, which puts him on the WR4 radar for this Thursday Night matchup.

James Cook

Buffalo Bills running back James Cook has put together a few nice outing during his rookie season. Sadly, there has been more duds than reliable performances from Cook this season. It's not always his fault as his workload is often times minimal due to the presence of Devin Singletary. Last week, Cook only carried the ball twice in the win over the Detroit Lions. That being said, fantasy managers shouldn't trust Cook to do much better in Week 13. He'll get a tough New England Patriots defense, which puts Cook as a desperation deep league option for this week.

Stefon Diggs Nov 29 7:00pm ET
Stefon Diggs

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs has been nearly impossible to slow down all season long. Last week, Diggs hauled in eight of his 15 targets for 77 yards in the win over the Detroit Lions. The superstar wideout has seen double digit targets in every game but four this season. The Bills clearly want to keep Diggs as a focal point in this offense. However, he could have some struggles against the strong New England Patriots secondary in Week 13. Fantasy managers should expect Diggs to continue to succeed, so consider him a low-end WR1 for this Thursday Night matchup.

Devin Singletary Nov 29 6:50pm ET
Devin Singletary

Buffalo Bills running back Devin Singletary has surprisingly performed better than many expected coming into the season. Over his last three games, Singletary has 205 rushing yards and three touchdowns in 45 attempts on the ground. The Bills have continued to trust Singletary and it is working out for them. However, he could have a tough time finding room to run against the New England Patriots in Week 13. This above average defensive unit puts Singletary on the low-end RB2 radar for this upcoming Thursday Night matchup.

Allen Robinson Nov 29 6:40pm ET
Allen Robinson

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Allen Robinson II (foot) has officially been placed on the injured reserve. The 29-year-old will undergo surgery on his foot and miss the rest of the regular season. He'll finish the 2022 campaign with 33 receptions, 339 yards, and three touchdowns in 10 games. This was a disaster of a season for Robinson, so any fantasy managers who were holding onto him can let him go to the waiver wire. In his absence, Van Jefferson and Ben Skowronek will likely be asked to play bigger roles in the offense.
