Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Matthew Stafford - QB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 10/15/17 4:52pm ET

    Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford completed 25 of his 52 pass attempts for 312 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions in the Week 6 game against the New Orleans Saints and he lost a pair of fumbles.

    Huddle Up: Stafford was officially listed as questionable for the game due to an ankle injury, but he showed no ill effects of the injury. He remains a solid fantasy starter, although you'll need to make alternate plans in Week 7 with the team on a bye.

  • Kyle Rudolph - TE - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 10/15/17 4:21pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph posted five catches for 47 yards on nine targets in Week 6 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Rudolph remains a solid low-end TE1 in all fantasy leagues, especially PPR formats. While he failed to find the end zone, he has posted 11 catches over the past two games. The Vikings host the Ravens in Week 7, a team which has struggled to contain tight ends this season.

  • Adam Thielen - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 10/15/17 4:20pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen racked up nine receptions for 97 yards on 13 targets in Week 6 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Thielen had an impressive game all around with Stefon Diggs inactive and Michael Floyd checking out early due to injury. He is more attractive in PPR leagues, but if Diggs remains sidelined Thielen isn't a bad start across the board heading into Week 7 against the Ravens.

  • Latavius Murray - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 10/15/17 4:20pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed 15 times for just 28 yards in Week 6 against the Green Bay Packers and he added one catch for nine yards.

    Huddle Up: Murray just doesn't look comfortable in the Minnesota offense, as Jerick McKinnon is much more familiar with the system and way more productive since Dalvin Cook went down. Murray admitted two weeks ago he isn't 100 percent after offseason surgery and he certainly looks like it.

  • Jerick McKinnon - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 10/15/17 4:18pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed 16 times for 69 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Green Bay Packers and he added five receptions for 30 yards and a score.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon finally exploded for a big stat line, his first since Dalvin Cook went down with a serious injury. KcKinnon appears to have the potential to be a strong RB2 or flex play down the stretch. The Vikings host the Ravens in Week 7.

  • Case Keenum - QB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 10/15/17 4:17pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum completed 24 of his 38 pass attempts for 239 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 6 game against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Keenum continues to spread the ball around nicely and he jelled nicely with Adam Thielen in this one with Stefon Diggs sidelined and Michael Floyd checking out early. However, he remains more of a low-end QB2 heading into Week 7 against the Baltimore Ravens.

  • Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 10/15/17 4:16pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) was cleared to return in the fourth quarter of the Week 6 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Fournette's injury looked worse than it was, and for that all fantasy owners are very thankful.

  • Martellus Bennett - TE - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 10/15/17 4:00pm ET

    Green Bay Packers TE Martellus Bennett posted two catches for 22 yards on four targets in the Week 6 loss against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Bennett's fantasy value takes a hit with Aaron Rodgers checking out of the game early due to a collarbone injury. As long as Rodgers is out and Brett Hundley is starting, all pass catches in Green Bay take a fantasy hit.

  • Randall Cobb - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 10/15/17 4:00pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb managed three catches for 28 yards on his three targets in Week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: It's bad enough Cobb has devolved into the No. 3 wideout in Green Bay, but now he'll be working with Brett Hundley rather than Aaron Rodgers after the latter suffered a collarbone injury.

  • Davante Adams - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 10/15/17 3:59pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams posted five receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets in Week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Adams seemed to jell nicely with Brett Hundley once he replaced the injured Aaron Rodgers, but the long-term fantasy outlook for Adams with his backup quarterback means he'll have slightly less value.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 10/15/17 3:58pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson hauled in six receptions for 60 yards on 10 targets in Week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Nelson's fantasy owners can't be happy with the fact Aaron Rodgers was forced out of the game early due to an apparent broken collarbone. That will hurt the fantasy appeal of Nelson going into Week 7 and beyond.

  • Ty Montgomery - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 10/15/17 3:57pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery rushed 10 times for 28 yards in Week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings while adding one catch for three yards.

    Huddle Up: The good news is that Montgomery didn't seem to have any ill effects of the rib injury which kept him sidelined recently. The bad news is that Aaron Jones emerged as a solid replacement and the duo now appear to be sharing backfield touches. With Aaron Rodgers leaving early due to injury and likely out for Week 7 and beyond, look for the Packers run game to be relied upon more heavily going forward.

  • Aaron Jones - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 10/15/17 3:57pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones rushed 13 times for 41 yards in Week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings while adding one catch for one yard.

    Huddle Up: Jones took a giant step back on Sunday, as the Green Bay offense was out of whack with Aaron Rodgers exiting early due to injury and Ty Montgomery also back from an injury. Jones and the run game should be relied upon more heavily in Week 7 against the New Orleans Saints with Rodgers expected to be out.

  • Brett Hundley - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 10/15/17 3:53pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Brett Hundley completed 18 of his 33 pass attempts for 157 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions in Week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Hundley was thrust into action when Aaron Rodgers suffered an apparent broken collarbone early in the game. It appears Hundley will be the team's starting quarterback heading into Week 7 against the New Orleans Saints and as long as Rodgers is forced to sit.

  • Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 10/15/17 3:52pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette left the Week 6 game against the Los Angeles Rams in the fourth due to a right ankle injury and he is questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Initially it appears he suffered a hyperextended right knee, but the word from the team is an ankle injury. It sounds like he avoided a major injury. He had a 75-yard touchdown and over 100 rushing yards before checking out.

  • Charcandrick West - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 10/15/17 3:29pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West left the Week 6 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the second half and he is being evaluated for concussion.

    Huddle Up: It's uncertain if and when the third-down back will be able to return. To make matters worse for West's fantasy owners, somehow the helmet-to-helmet hit was not flagged.

  • Ben Watson - TE - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 10/15/17 3:08pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson caught six passes for 28 yards against the Chicago Bears in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Watson has been limited to 30 yards over the last two games but has been targeted at least eight times in three games this season. He should be owned in all leagues but is not a weekly starting option.

  • Mike Wallace - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 10/15/17 3:05pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace caught three passes for 30 yards against the Chicago Bears in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Wallace has had one big game this season but has been held to 30 yards or less in four of the six gamesin 2017. Owners can keep Wallace on the bench this week against a solid Minnesota Vikings defense.

  • Joe Flacco - QB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 10/15/17 2:54pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco went 24-for-41 for 180 yards and two interceptions against the Chicago Bears in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Flacco has thrown six interceptions and only one touchdown in the last four games and will be facing a tough Minnesota Vikings defense in Week 7. Owners in all leagues should avoid Flacco.

  • Zach Miller - TE - Chicago Bears
    Posted 10/15/17 2:48pm ET

    Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller caught two passes for 25 yards and one touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Miller has caught a touchdown in each of the last two games but has not posted 50 yards in any games this season. He can be a No. 2 tight end in most leagues but is not a great starting option.
