Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 12/15/18 7:46pm ET

    Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham said his numbers 'suck' this season, and he wants the opportunity to return next season and dominate.

    Huddle Up: Even before being bothered by injuries, Graham struggled to find consistency this season, and he has found the end zone just twice. Although he hasn't lived up to expectations, Graham would still be a low-end TE1 candidate if he returns to the Packers next season.

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/15/18 6:48pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller's (ankle) injury doesn't appear to be serious, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

    Huddle Up: While the initial news is encouraging, Miller owners may want to try to add Alfred Blue as an insurance policy heading into Week 16.

  • Chris Herndon - TE - New York Jets
    Posted 12/15/18 6:07pm ET

    New York Jets TE Chris Herndon caught three of his four targets for 53 yards in a 29-22 loss to the Houston Texans in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: After a couple of quiet weeks, Herndon went back over 50 yards for the third time in his last six games. He's an intriguing prospect in dynasty formats and a potential streaming option for those desperate for tight end help late in the year.

  • Demaryius Thomas - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/15/18 6:03pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Demaryius Thomas caught six of his eight targets for 59 yards in a 29-22 win over the New York Jets in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: The eight targets were his most since joining the Texans, and Thomas has 10 catches on 14 targets over the last two games. He seems to be finding a rhythm with his new team, and he could be worth a look as a flex option heading into a Week 16 matchup with a battered Philadelphia secondary.

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/15/18 5:56pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) did not come back after leaving early with an ankle injury against the New York Jets Saturday, Dec. 15.

    Huddle Up: We'll need more information before determining what to do with Miller next week. Those who are in the playoffs and survive with Miller in their lineups might want to pick up Alfred Blue just in case.

  • Elijah McGuire - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 12/15/18 5:22pm ET

    New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire managed 21 touches for 71 yards and a touchdown in a loss versus the Houston Texans Saturday, Dec. 15.

    Huddle Up: McGuire was the feature back tonight with Bilal Powell and Isaiah Crowell out. The rushing average could have been better, but his 16.2 PPR points will do just fine. Keep tabs on Crowell's status for next week as it will obviously negatively impact McGuire's value.

  • Robby Anderson - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 12/15/18 5:17pm ET

    New York Jets WR Robby Anderson posted seven catches for 96 yards and a touchdown in a loss versus the Houston Texans Saturday, Dec. 15.

    Huddle Up: Anderson saw a team-high 11 targets with Quincy Enunwa sidelined and rewarded fantasy owners who took a chance on him. He's at least a flex option in next week's tantalizing matchup with the Green Bay Packers.

  • Sam Darnold - QB - New York Jets
    Posted 12/15/18 5:12pm ET

    New York Jets QB Sam Darnold threw for 253 yards and two touchdowns in a loss versus the Houston Texans Saturday, Dec. 15.

    Huddle Up: It wasn't pretty, but the rookie performed well overall against one of the NFL's best defenses. He spread the ball around well, too, finding nine different targets. There are still raw aspects in his game, but he could be an every-week QB1 candidate in a year or two.

  • Deshaun Watson - QB - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/15/18 5:01pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson completed 22 of 28 passes for 294 yards and two touchdowns in a win versus the New York Jets Saturday, Dec. 15. He added 26 rushing yards.

    Huddle Up: Watson managed quite a respectable stat line despite being sacked six times. He's one of the toughest quarterbacks in the league and, with the aid of his running ability, has QB1 potential throughout his career as long as he's healthy.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/15/18 4:54pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught 10 passes for 170 yards and two touchdowns in a win versus the New York Jets Saturday, Dec. 15.

    Huddle Up: It's what we've come to expect from Hopkins when he has a really good matchup. He was looked to early and often and highlighted his performance with a spectacular grab on his second score. He's arguably the No. 1 fantasy wide receiver going into next year.

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/15/18 2:01pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) went to the locker room in the second quarter of the Week 15 game against the New York Jets on Saturday, Dec. 15. He left the game in the first quarter, returned after a brief absence, but is now sidelined again.

    Huddle Up: The Texans are likely to be a little more pass-happy with Miller on the shelf and questionable to return. Alfred Blue will be the main back if Miller cannot come back.

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/15/18 1:59pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) checked back into the Week 15 game against the New York Jets after leaving earlier with an ankle injury.

    Huddle Up: It appears he'll be good to go, but it will be something to watch the rest of the way. If he needs more rest as the game goes on, or if the game gets out of hand allowing him for more rest, Alfred Blue would be the beneficiary.

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/15/18 1:38pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (lower body) suffered an apparent lower-body injury in the first quarter of the Week 15 game against the New York Jets. He attempted to limp off, couldn't make it to the sideline and was attended to by trainers on the field.

    Huddle Up: If Miller is limited or forced to miss the rest of the game it would be the Alfred Blue carrying the load the rest of the way. We'll stay on top of it and let you know when Miller's status is updated.

  • Dak Prescott - QB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 12/15/18 12:46pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has started all 13 games this season. If he starts the final three games in 2018 he would be the first quarterback in franchise history to start every game in three consecutive seasons.

    Huddle Up: Prescott has helped the Cowboys to the top of the NFC East, and his durability has certainly helped the continuity of the offense. He was really jelled nicely with newcomer Amari Cooper to see a boost in his fantasy production, too. Consider Dak a low-end QB1 or strong QB2 heading into Week 15.

  • Eli Rogers - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 12/15/18 12:36pm ET

    The Pittsburgh Steelers activated WR Eli Rogers (knee) from the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list on Saturday, Dec. 15, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Rogers could see snaps immediately, as Ryan Switzer is questionable due to an ankle injury. While Rogers could be active on Sunday, it's likely Darrius Heyward-Bey would be the No. 3 behind Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster if Switzer is sidelined. Rogers isn't someone to rely upon for fantasy purposes at this juncture.

  • Stevan Ridley - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 12/15/18 12:11pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Stevan Ridley is expected to see a larger role in Week 15 against the New England Patriots, his former team, with RB James Conner doubtful due to injury. Ridley has an ax to grind against the Patriots, and he is looking forward to the matchup. 'I was trashed after an injury. To be a starter for four years, to tear my ACL, and to never get a call back, that's a tough pill to swallow,' Ridley said.

    Huddle Up: The 29-year-old back is expected to share time with Jaylen Samuels if Conner is officially inactive, and Ridley could be running with authority in a game against a team he feels slighted him. That motivation makes him a sneaky fantasy play in deeper leagues, and an especially solid value in DFS.

  • James Conner - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 12/15/18 11:45am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (ankle) is considered unlikely to play in the Week 15 game, according to a source. Conner probably will be able to play in the Week 16 game.

    Huddle Up: Owners should check the inactive list to determine Conner's status but probably should look for other options for their lineups and keep Conner on the bench. Jaylen Samuels likely would receive most of the work at running back if Conner is ruled out and could be at least a flex option.

  • Josh Doctson - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 12/15/18 11:43am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (concussion) will be traveling with the team for their Week 15 game. He is listed as questionable for the game.

    Huddle Up: Doctson may he a game-time decision, but it is a good sign that he is traveling with the team. He is coming off a solid Week 14 performance and could be a flex option in some leagues if he is cleared.

  • Chris Thompson - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 12/15/18 11:38am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (illness) is expected to play in the Week 15 game even though he is listed as questionable.

    Huddle Up: Thompson should see some targets as a receiver out of the backfield even though he will be working with a new quarterback. He can be considered a flex option in most leagues.

  • Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 12/15/18 10:57am ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) fully participated in practice Saturday, Dec. 15, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Newton has not played his best football over the last few weeks but probably will be involved in a high-scoring game this week against the New Orleans Saints. He can be considered a No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues this week.
