Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Dez Bryant - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 9/25/17 10:41pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant managed only two catches for 12 yards in the team's Week 3 victory Monday, Sept. 25, against the Arizona Cardinals. He did, however, get into the end zone for the second time this season.

    Huddle Up: This was a rare off night for the former first-round draft pick, as he was targeted just twice by Dak Prescott all game. In his defense, the Cowboys only dialed up 18 pass attempts, so don't expect another low-volume game from Bryant like this one any time soon. Despite the lackluster stat line, Bryant can still be viewed as a WR1 for all formats.

  • Brice Butler - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 9/25/17 10:35pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Brice Butler set a new career high with 90 receiving yards in the team's Week 3 win Monday, Sept. 25, opposite the Arizona Cardinals, doing so on two receptions. He also scored a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Those catches were also the only targets Butler saw for the evening, meaning owners shouldn't overreact to this rare performance. The five-year veteran would need an injury or two within the receiving corps to become relevant in fantasy leagues.

  • Ezekiel Elliott - RB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 9/25/17 10:34pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott registered 22 rushes for 80 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 3 win Monday, Sept. 25, against the Arizona Cardinals. He also added three receptions for 14 yards.

    Huddle Up: It was the first rushing touchdown of the campaign for the former Ohio State Buckeye. Elliott's numbers through the first three games leave a little bit to be desired, but this was a nice bounce-back effort following last week's disastrous showing in Denver. He'll continue to be a strong RB1 option no matter what defense he's opposing.

  • Dak Prescott - QB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 9/25/17 10:21pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott had an efficient game Monday, Sept. 25, against the Arizona Cardinals, completing 13-of-18 passes for 183 yards and racking up two touchdown tosses compared to zero interceptions. He also ran three times for 16 yards, picking up a rushing touchdown in the process as well.

    Huddle Up: With so few pass attempts Monday night, the numbers may not jump out right away but it was actually a very solid showing overall for the second-year signal-caller. It was also the most fantasy points Prescott has produced in a game this season. Hopefully his owners will get more performances like this one that are reminiscent of his fantastic rookie campaign of a year ago.

  • Jaron Brown - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/25/17 10:14pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Jaron Brown logged two catches for 27 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 3 game Monday, Sept. 25, versus the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: If not for a holding penalty, Brown would have had two touchdowns in this contest, but those who were sharp enough to plug him in will gladly settle for the one. While he only recorded two grabs, the six targets was encouraging, meaning he's drawn 17 targets total in two games. As long as John Brown remains sidelined, the other Brown could be sneaking up on the WR3 radar in many formats.

  • Kerwynn Williams - RB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/25/17 10:06pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Kerwynn Williams played only one snap in the team's Week 3 game Monday, Sept. 25, against the Dallas Cowboys, rushing once for three yards.

    Huddle Up: Yikes. Those who invested in Williams as their waiver acquisition following the injury to David Johnson have to be furious right now, as after serving as the starting running back only a week ago, it looks like he's already fallen to third on the depth chart. To try and salvage this move, owners should be vying for the services of Andre Ellington, who could be the new starter after his solid performance in this one.

  • Chris Johnson - RB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/25/17 9:51pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson managed only 17 rushing yards on 12 carries in the team's Week 3 game Monday, Sept. 25, against the Dallas Cowboys. He also added one reception for four yards.

    Huddle Up: After an encouraging outing in his season debut a week ago, Johnson was terribly disappointing in his second game and to top it off, he also played considerably less than Andre Ellington. Arizona's running game situation is tough to trust right now, but if tonight is any indication, Ellington could be emerging as the new starter, which would kill all of Johnson's value.

  • Andre Ellington - RB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/25/17 9:43pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington led the team in rushing yards with 22 on just five carries in the team's Week 3 game Monday, Sept. 25, against the Dallas Cowboys. He also added five receptions for 59 yards.

    Huddle Up: It looks like the once mega-popular fantasy commodity will be getting another shot at glory based on how the running game was utilized in this one, as Ellington played considerably more snaps than both Chris Johnson and Kerwynn Williams. It was flashes of the Ellington from years ago when he first broke into the league and was regularly involved in the passing game. After two nothing performances to begin his season, Ellington has revitalized his value and should not be on any waiver wires.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/25/17 9:33pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald recorded his most receptions in a game since 2009 when he hauled in 13-of-15 targets for 149 receiving yards in the team's Week 3 affair Monday, Sept. 25, against the Dallas Cowboys. He also scored a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: This was very refreshing for his owners after Fitzgerald totaled a measly nine catches for 95 yards combined in the first two games. Opposite the Cowboys, the 34-year-old proved that he can still be a capable WR1 in 2017. As long as John Brown remains out, Fitzgerald should continue to benefit from that as well.

  • Carson Palmer - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/25/17 9:31pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer completed 29-of-48 passes for 325 yards, adding two touchdowns while throwing no interceptions in the team's Week 3 game Monday, Sept. 25, versus the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: This was Palmer's best game of the young season, and his second good one in a row following his season-opening clunker in Detroit. Even more impressive is that he didn't have John Brown again, though Larry Fitzgerald's monstrous performance certainly helped. If Palmer had a better offensive line, he'd be more involved in the QB1 conversation, but as it is, he's more of a streaming option than anything else in standard leagues.

  • Doug Baldwin - WR - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/25/17 6:38pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (groin) is considered day-to-day after undergoing tests on the strained groin he suffered in Week 3, according to sources. He may have a chance to play in the team's Week 4 game.

    Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on Baldwin's practice participation this week to see if Baldwin will be in uniform this week. He is coming off a terrific Week 3 performance where he posted 105 yards and one touchdown. Baldwin is a must-start option in all leagues if he is active, but owners will need a backup plan in case he sits out.

  • Ed Dickson - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/25/17 6:30pm ET

    Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said he has told coaches that he wants TE Ed Dickson to be more involved in the offense.

    Huddle Up: Dickson has taken over the starting tight end job with Greg Olsen sidelined but caught only one pass in Week 3. He could receive a few more targets during games but should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

  • Corey Davis - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/25/17 4:16pm ET

    Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis (hamstring) has not been ruled out for the team's Week 4 game at this point, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor Davis' practice participation during the week to see if he has a chance to play in Week 4. Owners in most leagues probably should look for healthier options to use in their lineups because Davis could be limited even if he does play.

  • Derrick Henry - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/25/17 3:56pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (thigh) will be able to play in Week 4 even though he suffered a thigh contusion in Week 3, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.

    Huddle Up: Henry received the start in Week 3 because of DeMarco Murray's injury and finished with 54 yards. He could start again if Murray is not able to but play but will have a solid role even if Murray returns. He should be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues and could be a No. 2 fantasy running back if he starts.

  • Andrew Luck - QB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/25/17 3:50pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 4, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.

    Huddle Up: Luck is making progress and may practice this week but is still probably a few weeks away from playing in a game. Jacoby Brissett will receive another start but probably should be avoided in most fantasy leagues because he will be facing a tough Seattle Seahawks defense.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/25/17 3:30pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon received 34 offensive snaps in the team's Week 3 game. RB Jeremy Hill received 14 snaps, while RB Giovani Bernard received 13 snaps.

    Huddle Up: It appears Mixon will be the No. 1 running back for the Bengals moving forward, which makes him a valuable option for fantasy owners. He can be a No. 2 running back or a flex option most weeks. Hill can be considered a flex option against certain opponents in standard leagues, while Bernard can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/25/17 3:04pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) is expected to miss several weeks because of his back injury but will not need surgery, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Tyler Kroft likely will continue to be the starting tight end with Eifert out but only posted 28 yards in Week 3. Owners should be able to find a better short-term option until Eifert returns and can avoid Kroft.

  • Darren Sproles - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/25/17 2:47pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee, arm) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Sept. 25.

    Huddle Up: Wendell Smallwood is the Philadelphia running back to add if he's available. LeGarrette Blount will vulture some touchdowns and be used in short-yardage situations. Corey Clement will also steal some touches. That being said, Smallwood has the most upside in Sproles' absence.

  • Ty Montgomery - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/25/17 2:21pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery (wrist) was a limited practice participant Monday, Sept. 25. The Packers did not actually practice; this practice participation designation is an estimation.

    Huddle Up: Montgomery is the indubitable workhorse in the Packers' backfield this year, so bumps and bruises are to be expected. There has been no indication that he is at risk of missing Thursday night's contest, so keep him in those starting lineups for now.

  • Randall Cobb - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/25/17 2:15pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (chest) was limited in practice Monday, Sept. 25. The Packers did not actually practice; this practice participation designation is an estimation.

    Huddle Up: Cobb had an extra week off after being sidelined last weekend. The fact that he will be practicing at all is promising, but the Packers do play Thursday night. Keep tabs on his status leading up to then. If he plays he could be limited.
