Insight: Jones-Drew\'s MRI results came back clean. He seems to be finding his groove late in the season with 457 yards (328 rushing, 129 receiving) and three touchdowns over his last five games. He\'ll be a solid flex/RB2 option for Week 15.
Description: The Ravens have activated tight end Dennis Pitta (hip) from injured reserve according to Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports.
Insight: Pitta is expected to return Sunday against the Vikings, but because he\'ll be on a limited snap count he\'ll be no better than a TE2. He could emerge as a starting fantasy option in Weeks 15-17, however, as Joe Flacco has been hurting for a consistent underneath target all season.
Description: Cleveland forward Tristan Thompson had another big night Saturday in a win over the Clippers.
Insight: His line included 20 points, 13 rebounds, four assists, two steals and a blocked shot. The 22-year-old logged an exhausting 40 minutes of court time in this one. He\'ll have a couple days to rest up before Tuesday\'s matchup with the Knicks.

Insight: Orpik put a big hit on left wing Loui Eriksson in the first period and Thornton retaliated by sending Orpik to the ground during a play stoppage. Thornton would later punch Orpik\'s head into the ground, knocking him unconscious. Thornton was ejected and is likely to be suspended for his actions.

Insight: The O\'s traded closer Jim Johnson to Oakland earlier this week. Norris would have more fantasy value as a ninth inning man than he would as a starter but it\'s probably not going to happen. Tommy Hunter throws harder and has better stuff than Norris. Plus, the O\'s need Norris in the rotation now that Scott Feldman has signed with Houston.
