On Thanksgiving, new Cowboys receiver Amari Cooper went bananas on the way to eight receptions, 180 receiving yards and two receiving touchdowns in Dallas' 31-23 win.
The NFL shared highlights of the game, including Cooper's scores:
The Cowboys are now 3-1 since acquiring Cooper in a trade with the Oakland Raiders, with a 61-percent chance to make the postseason, according to FiveThirtyEight's projections.
And Cooper has a lot to do with it. He's averaging 18.7 fantasy points per game in point-per-reception formats with Dallas. Ezekiel Elliott (27.6) and Dak Prescott (19.7) are the only Cowboys averaging more over those four games.
Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey has been on a ridiculous run for about a month now. After racking up 239 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns Sunday, he's averaging 24.6 fantasy points (30.8 PPR) since October 28.
The NFL posted video of McCaffrey's receiving touchdown:
After this monster performance, McCaffrey now has 1,192 rushing yards, 1,259 receiving yards and 17 total touchdowns in his young career. Herschel Walker and Alvin Kamara are the only other players in NFL history to hit all three marks in their first 27 NFL games.
Elsewhere in the NFC, New York Giants rookie Saquon Barkley continued his ridiculous inaugural campaign with 101 rushing yards, one rushing touchdown, seven catches, 41 receiving yards and one receiving touchdown.
The league posted video of his 51-yard strike from the first half of a 25-22 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles:
Barkley is now averaging a whopping 26.2 PPR points per game. Coming into this season, the highest PPR average ever by an NFL rookie was Marcus Allen's 25.41 in 1982.
Josh Allen, Baker Mayfield and Lamar Jackson all led their teams to victory while tallying at least 20 fantasy points in Week 12.
Allen led the way with 27, largely because of the damage he did as a runner. He went 8-of-19 passing for 160 yards and a touchdown through the air, adding another 99 yards and a touchdown on the ground.
Mayfield was just one point behind, finishing with 258 yards and four touchdowns on 19-of-26 passing.
Jackson got an even 20, running 71 yards and a touchdown and going 14-of-25 passing for 178 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.
The Denver Broncos may have ended the Pittsburgh Steelers' winning streak Sunday, but it'd be hard to pin that on JuJu Smith-Schuster.
The Steelers wideout totaled 13 receptions, 189 receiving yards and a touchdown in the 24-17 loss.
That score was a 97-yarder, as seen on the NFL's timeline:
After Sunday's big game, Smith-Schuster is now averaging 19.2 PPR points per game, top-10 among receivers this season.
The Minnesota Vikings beat their division rival, the Green Bay Packers, 24-17 on Sunday Night Football behind a big game from Kirk Cousins.
The Vikings quarterback went 29-of-38 for 342 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions.
The NFL shared highlights of the game:
Counting Sunday's game, Cousins now has a passer rating of 101.9, just above the career high of 101.6 he set in 2015.
