Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/22/18 11:17pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) will play in Week 3 versus the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Fitzgerald makes for a risky play given the nature of his injury and the Cardinals' anemic offensive attack thus far, but he's about the only somewhat reliable weapon Arizona has in the passing game. It's not a given he'll be able to benefit from negative game script, but he should be able to post WR2 type production if he can make it through the game.

  • Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/22/18 11:03pm ET

    Contradicting an earlier report from ESPN's Adam Schefter, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) is facing an 'uphill battle to play' in Week 3 against the Tennessee Titans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport via a source.

    Huddle Up: This would be a bit of a surprise considering it has been assumed Fournette would play all week despite practicing in limited fashion. If Fournette is unable to play, it seems like T.J. Yeldon and Corey Grant would split backfield touches in much the same fashion they did last week.

  • Alshon Jeffery - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/22/18 9:46pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) is not expected to play in Week 3 vs. the Indianapolis Colts, according to a source. Jeffery could return in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: With few weapons, Carson Wentz is no better than a starter in two-QB leagues or superflex play. Jeffery should be able to immediately contribute upon his return, given the nature of his upper-body injury.

  • LeSean McCoy - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/22/18 9:42pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (ribs) is not expected to play in Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings, according to a source. McCoy will see how he feels in the pregame before the coaching staff makes a final decision.

    Huddle Up: Chris Ivory should replace McCoy if Shady sits, and it is highly probable the former will see an increased workload even if McCoy is able to play. Ivory is no better than a weak flex play in standard scoring.

  • Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/22/18 9:38pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 3 against the Tennessee Titans, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Fournette is a must-start in any conventional league, but gamers should be prepared to deal with the risk of him suffering a setback in the game. Hamstrings can be tricky, and Fournette is no stranger to soft-tissue injuries.

  • Blaine Gabbert - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/22/18 9:33pm ET

    Updating an ongoing story, Tennessee Titans QB Blaine Gabbert is the planned Week 3 starter, against the Jacksonville Jaguars, in place of QB Marcus Mariota (elbow), according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Gabbert has no fantasy value, especially with a daunting matchup. Gamers should keep Mariota in reserve while awaiting his return.

  • Dalvin Cook - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/22/18 3:52pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) said he has no doubts that he will be on the field in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Cook will be back, but he'll be returning to face one of the most formidable defenses in the league in the Los Angeles Rams. With Latavius Murray spotting him, coming off an injury and considering the matchup, Cook will be more of an RB2 option.

  • Chris Godwin - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 9/22/18 12:29pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin (toe) practiced in full Saturday, Sept. 22 and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 3 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Godwin enters the game with a touchdown in each of his first two games, racking up eight receptions for 97 yards on 10 targets. He is a solid WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 9/22/18 12:25pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (knee) practiced in full Saturday, Sept. 22 and he has been removed from the injury report for Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: It's time for more 'Fitz-magic' on Monday night, as he started in the third straight game in place of the suspended Jameis Winston. Fitzpatrick needs the NFL in passing yardage through two games, and he will face a so-so Steelers pass D which is allowing 236.0 yards per game with seven touchdowns and nine pass plays of 20 or more yards. Ben Roethlisberger is No. 2 in the league in passing yardage, so Monday could be quite a gunslinger show.

  • LeSean McCoy - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/22/18 10:22am ET

    Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (rib) is traveling with the team for their Week 3 game and is still considered questionable to play.

    Huddle Up: McCoy is expected to be a game-time decision, so owners will need to check the inactive list. He may see limited touches if he plays and is facing a tough Minnesota Vikings defense. Owners may only see him as a flex option because of his uncertain status.

  • Robby Anderson - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 9/22/18 9:11am ET

    New York Jets WR Robby Anderson has only six receptions and 90 yards in the first three games of the 2018 season. He has also lost two fumbles during that span.

    Huddle Up: Anderson has been targeted only 10 times in the first three games, so he will need to improve his chemistry with Sam Darnold. Owners probably were expecting more from Anderson after his productive 2017 season but is now only a flex option against favorable matchups.

  • Dalvin Cook - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/21/18 5:13pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 3 but is confident that he will be able to play in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: The Vikings play on Thursday Night Football, so Cook has about a week to recover from his injury. Latavius Murray will receive a majority of the work at running back this week and can be a flex option.

  • Corey Clement - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/21/18 4:10pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Corey Clement (quadriceps) should be able to play in the Week 3 game despite being listed as questionable for the game.

    Huddle Up: Clement likely will receive the start this week if he is active for the game. He should have a favorable matchup this week and can be at least a flex option in most leagues.

  • Russell Wilson - QB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/21/18 3:08pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (hamstring) participated fully in practice Friday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Wilson has had a year to forget through two weeks, but this is his first game at home in 2018. As we've seen before, he can succeed against any defense no matter how poor his supporting cast is. Consider him a borderline QB1 versus the Dallas Cowboys.

  • Doug Baldwin - WR - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/21/18 3:03pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (knee) did not practice Friday, Sept. 21, and will not play in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Baldwin needs more time to heal yet. Brandon Marshall and Tyler Lockett will be the primary beneficiaries again in his absence. Both receivers are flex options in what has been a disappointing offense.

  • Case Keenum - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 9/21/18 2:09pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 21, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Keenum will be fine for the game but is off to a slow start this season. He will be facing a solid Baltimore Ravens defense and probably should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback this week.

  • Paul Richardson - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/21/18 2:02pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee) practiced on a limited basis Friday, Sept. 21 and he is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Richardson is a risky fantasy play for Week 3. When completely healthy, he is still just a WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams. If you have healthier alternatives, use them.

  • Cole Beasley - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 9/21/18 1:57pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 21, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Beasley was added to the injury report during the week but appears to have a good chance to play in Week 3. He is off to a slow start to the 2018 season and probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/21/18 1:52pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (neck) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 21, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Gordon will continue to be a focal point in the offense despite the injury. He will be facing a tough Los Angeles Rams defense this week but can still be a No. 1 or No. 2 running back in all leagues.

  • Antonio Gates - TE - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/21/18 1:48pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates (illness) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 21, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Gates probably has a decent chance to play in Week 3, but owners will know more about his status closer to game time. He has only been targeted three times in two games and should not be a fantasy option for owners.
