Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Ryan Griffin - TE - Houston Texans
    Posted 10/15/17 2:46pm ET

    Houston Texans TE Ryan Griffin hauled in three receptions for 52 yards on a game-high eight targets in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: DeShaun Watson certainly looked for Griffin early and often, but they had just three connections. It was his highest production since he had a season-high 61 yards and a score in Week 3 against the Patriots. He remains more of a bye-week replacement option than a fantasy regular. Houston is off in Week 7, though.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 10/15/17 2:46pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins posted two receptions for 19 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: The touchdown was nice but the yardage total was not something fantasy owners can be terribly pleased about. Nuke has five total touchdowns over his first three games, as he and Will Fuller have co-existed. However, Hopkins was the loser this week in terms of receiving yardage. His 9.5 yards per grab were his lowest since Week 1. The Texans are off in Week 7 for their bye.

  • Will Fuller - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 10/15/17 2:45pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller posted two grabs for a game-high 62 yards and a touchdown on five targets in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: The Texans didn't have to pass much in the second half with the game out of hand, but Fuller made yet another scoring connection with DeShaun Watson. That's five scores in three games since Fuller returned from injury, as he has outshined DeAndre Hopkins and emerged as a legitimate WR2 in all fantasy leagues. However, he and the Texans are off for the bye in Week 7.

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 10/15/17 2:45pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed 15 times for 41 yards in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns while adding three receptions for 40 yards on four targets.

    Huddle Up: The total yardage was nice, but he had just 2.7 yards per rush to 4.9 yards per tote for D'Onta Foreman. Miller was used slightly less in the second half with the game out of hand, too. The team is off in Week 7 for its bye.

  • D'Onta Foreman - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 10/15/17 2:44pm ET

    Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman rushed 12 times for a team-high 59 yards in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Foreman is normally the hammer and complement to the more elusive Lamar Miller, but he averaged 4.9 yards per carry to Miller's 2.7 in this one, so he was featured more. Foreman also saw more work in the second half with the game out of hand, too. He is expected to remain second fiddle to Miller, but we'll have to wait until Week 8 to see how the situation continues to unfold, as the Texans have a bye next week.

  • Deshaun Watson - QB - Houston Texans
    Posted 10/15/17 2:44pm ET

    Houston Texans QB DeShaun Watson completed 17 of his 29 pass attempts for 225 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns. He also rushed six times for 23 yards.

    Huddle Up: The rookie has been one of the best fantasy quarterbacks over the past three games, if not the best. While he has just one 300-yard game this season back in Week 3 in New England, Watson has thrown for 12 touchdowns with just two interceptions over the past three outings while also finding the end zone once with his feet. Fantasy owners will need to make alternate plans in Week 7, as the Texans have their bye week.

  • Rashard Higgins - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/15/17 2:41pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins posted one catch for 13 yards on two targets in Week 6 against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Higgins exploded for seven grabs, 95 yards and 11 targets in Week 2 in Baltimore but he has done nothing since. He has 30 receiving yards over his past four games with five catches on 16 targets. Avoid in all fantasy formats heading into Week 7 against the Titans.

  • David Njoku - TE - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/15/17 2:41pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku posted two grabs for zero yards on five targets in Week 6 against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: To make matters worse for Njoku's fantasy owners, backup Seth DeValve scored on a red zone touchdown. Njoku seemed to have a rhythm with DeShone Kizer, but he was benched in favor of Kevin Hogan and Njoku didn't seem to work as well with the Stanford product. The Browns host the Titans in Week 7, but Njoku shouldn't be part of most fantasy owners plans until he and Hogan start to jell.

  • Seth DeValve - TE - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/15/17 2:40pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE Seth DeValve posted two grabs for just nine yards in Week 6 against the Houston Texans but he was able to get into the end zone.

    Huddle Up: David Njoku's fantasy owners won't be terribly pleased that DeValve earned the red zone score rather than their guy. It DeValve's first score of the season. After managing 132 receiving yards over his first three games he has just 35 yards over the past three outings. Despite the score he isn't a fantasy option heading into Week 7.

  • Kasen Williams - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/15/17 2:40pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Kasen Williams posted four receptions for a team-high 41 yards on six targets in Week 6 against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Williams led a hodgepodge of receivers for Cleveland, but he doesn't have much in the way of fantasy appeal heading into Week 7 against the Tennessee Titans.

  • Duke Johnson - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/15/17 2:39pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson rushed five times for 40 yards in Week 6 against the Houston Texans while added three receptions for minus-1 yard.

    Huddle Up: Johnson had eight total touches to 14 for Isaiah Crowell. As long as Johnson continues to play second fiddle to Crowell his fantasy expectations are rather limited. The Browns host the Titans in Week 7.

  • Isaiah Crowell - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/15/17 2:39pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell rushed 12 times for 58 yards in Week 6 against the Houston Texans while racking up two catches for 15 yards on his two targets.

    Huddle Up: It wasn't a huge game, but it's a start. Crowell had 16 total touches to eight for Duke Johnson, but he didn't get into the end zone. Still, he averaged a season-best 4.8 yards per rush in this one. Crowell has a ways to go before he realizes his early-round ADP value, but at least he is trending in the right direction. The Browns host the Titans in Week 7.

  • Tarik Cohen - RB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 10/15/17 2:39pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed for 32 yards on 14 carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6. He also caught one pass for 14 yards and also threw a 21-yard touchdown pass during the game.

    Huddle Up: Cohen appears to be the No. 2 running back for the Bears and will be involved in the running and passing game. He can be considered a flex option in deeper leagues against favorable matchups.

  • Jordan Howard - RB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 10/15/17 2:33pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed for 167 yards on 36 carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Howard has rushed for at least 100 yards in two of the last four games and has three touchdowns in that span. He will be facing a solid Carolina Panthers defense next week but can be at least a No. 2 running back in all leagues.

  • Mitchell Trubisky - QB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 10/15/17 2:24pm ET

    Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky went 8-for-16 for 113 yards and one touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Trubisky has not thrown for more than 128 yards in either of his starts this season and has two touchdowns and one interception during that span. He can be owned in keeper leagues but should be avoided in all other leagues.

  • Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TE - New York Jets
    Posted 10/15/17 2:20pm ET

    New York Jets TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught eight passes for 46 yards and one touchdown against the New England Patriots in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Seferian-Jenkins had recorded a touchdown in each of his last two games and has been targeted 19 times during that span. He should be owned in all fantasy leagues and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end against certain opponents.

  • Jeremy Kerley - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 10/15/17 2:16pm ET

    New York Jets WR Jeremy Kerley caught two passes for 61 yards and one touchdown against the New England Patriots in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Kerley has caught 19 of his 20 targets this season but has not posted great receiving yards. Owners probably can find better options each week and can avoid Kerley despite his Week 6 performance.

  • Kevin Hogan - QB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/15/17 2:16pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Kevin Hogan completed 20 of his 37 pass attempts for 140 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions in the Week 6 game against the Houston Texans. He also rushed five times for 36 yards.

    Huddle Up: Hogan supplanted rookie DeShone Kizer as the team's starter but the results were obviously the same, as the Browns fell to 0-6 overall. Neither Hogan nor Kizer are worthy of fantasy consideration heading into Week 7 against the Titans.

  • Robby Anderson - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 10/15/17 2:13pm ET

    New York Jets WR Robby Anderson caught four passes for 76 yards against the New England Patriots in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Anderson has been a bit inconsistent in terms of his stats this season but was targeted 12 times in Week 6. Anderson can be owned in most leagues but can stay on the bench this week.

  • Jermaine Kearse - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 10/15/17 2:09pm ET

    New York Jets WR Jermaine Kearse caught four passes for 79 yards against the New England Patriots in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Kearse has caught all eight of his targets over the last two games and appears to have earned a solid role in the passing game. Owners in deeper leagues could consider adding Kearse to their rosters, but he should only be used as a flex option against favorable matchups.
