Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall is likely to be matched up often against Dallas Cowboys CB Brandon Carr in Week 14. "I don't like playing against Brandon Carr," Marshall said. "He presents a lot of tough challenges throughout a game. You'll notice he changes up his game when he plays against bigger receivers. He's strong. He's physical. He plays that way against guys like myself. I absolutely hate the matchup. It's like playing chess out there with him. Every single play is a battle. He just makes you work so hard."

Houston Texans QB Case Keenum will be the starter for the rest of the 2013 season, according to team owner Bob McNair. The team wants to use the final three games of the season to evaluate Keenum.
FANTASY TIP: The league has adjusted quickly to Keenum, who has failed to reach 200 yards passing in three of his last four games. He's a backup option at best but does present you with low-end QB1 value if the matchup is right.

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will likely face off against New England Patriots CB Aqib Talib in Week 14, and Gordon vows to make plays against the star cornerback. Gordon owns the highest yards per game average this year at 124.9. Talib hasn't allowed more than 121 yards all year to receivers he's covered. "I'm pretty sure he'll make some plays, but I'm definitely going to make more plays," said Gordon.
FANTASY TIP: Gordon's matchup is tough, but he's too much of a talent to consider benching him, especially with playoff matchups on the line. Gordon needs to be in all lineups.
