Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Marlon Mack - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 11/14/18 1:06pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (non-injury related) was held out of practice Wednesday, Nov. 14.

    Huddle Up: There hasn't been an injury reported for Mack since the Colts' Week 10 game, so this could just be a maintenance and/or rest day for him. Check back to see what his status is tomorrow, but if he's limited or better then he'll likely play this weekend.

  • Chris Thompson - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 11/14/18 12:42pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ribs) was absent from practice Wednesday, Nov. 14, and has a good chance of being held out this week, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

    Huddle Up: Thompson has been bothered by his ribs for a few weeks now. Kapri Bibbs has filled in as the pass-catching back in his place, but only carries flex value in PPR formats.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 11/14/18 12:35pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Martavis Bryant (knee) will miss a couple of weeks and could be out longer after injuring his posterior cruciate ligament last week, according to head coach Jon Gruden.

    Huddle Up: Bryant has been a non-factor even with Amari Cooper out of the picture. It's safe to drop him at this point unless you're in a deeper league and need the depth.

  • John Ross - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 11/14/18 12:20pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (groin) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Nov. 14.

    Huddle Up: Ross is playing a larger role with A.J. Green sidelined, but he only caught two passes last week, although he did score. What's promising is that Ross was targeted six times. Keep him in the flex conversation even in a tough matchup versus the Baltimore Ravens.

  • Greg Olsen - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 11/14/18 11:53am ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) put in a limited practice Wednesday, Nov. 14.

    Huddle Up: Olsen was somewhat of a disappointment last week, but given the state of the tight end position he remains a TE1 consideration.

  • Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 11/14/18 11:50am ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 14.

    Huddle Up: Newton has been limited in practice a lot this year but hasn't missed a game. Injuries haven't affected his production either as he has totaled 21 touchdowns and thrown just five interceptions. Keep the dual-threat quarterback in your starting lineup.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 11/14/18 11:29am ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson (knee) is questionable to play in Week 11 as he is dealing with a bone bruise in his knee.

    Huddle Up: Hopes for Nelson producing sans Amari Cooper have quickly faded. He has not managed more than two catches in his last four outings. If you can help it, don't start any Oakland wide receiver.

  • Joe Flacco - QB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 11/14/18 10:51am ET

    Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (hip) is not practicing Wednesday, Nov. 14.

    Huddle Up: The Ravens haven't been clear on who will start if Flacco can't, but it will be either Robert Griffin III or Lamar Jackson. Jackson has been more involved this year and gives the Ravens a more athletic threat, so the Ravens could just be keeping the Cincinnati Bengals on their toes. Jackson would make for a quiet start in superflex leagues.

  • D'Onta Foreman - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 11/14/18 9:19am ET

    Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') will practice Wednesday, Nov. 14, which will open his 21-day window to possibly return from the Physically Unable to Perform list.

    Huddle Up: Foreman is a good stash option if he's floating on waivers. However, it'll at least a couple of weeks before he could be a factor.

  • Rashaad Penny - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 11/14/18 7:10am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny still has rookie moments in the classroom, according to offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer. 'He'll always be involved in the plan,' Schottenheimer said. 'We're hard on him. We're excited about him. He's still a young player. He still has those times in the meetings where it's like, 'Rashaad, are you listening?' like most young players do. The season is long.'

    Huddle Up: He's clearly behind Chris Carson and is just a depth back at this point. However, Carson is banged up often, and Penny could break through at any point.

  • Stefon Diggs - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 11/13/18 10:16pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (ribs) indicated he 'will play' against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, Nov. 18, as part of an interview with NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

    Huddle Up: Diggs didn't play in Week 9, so he'll have had three full weeks to heal up for a divisional showdown with the Bears. Through eight games, Diggs is averaging 7.3 receptions, 74 yards and 0.5 TDs per game. Assuming there are no setbacks, Diggs looks like a strong WR2 this Sunday.

  • Randall Cobb - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 11/13/18 9:41pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (hamstring) will not travel with the team for their Week 11 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: No surprise. Cobb has been banged up most of the year and hasn't done much since a dynamic Week 1. His absence should mean more looks for rookies Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown, though MVS is clearly the one to play.

  • Doug Baldwin - WR - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 11/13/18 7:36pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin told 710 ESPN Seattle on Tuesday, Nov. 13, the knee issues he's been battling all season improved to the point that he woke up without pain last week for the first time.

    Huddle Up: It's great news for Baldwin, who had five catches for 39 yards in the team's Week 10 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. However, he has yet to visit the end zone this year after doing so at least seven times in each of the last three seasons and only has 23 receptions for 275 yards through seven games. Baldwin will remain no more than a WR4 for fantasy purposes moving forward until he becomes a bigger part of the offense, which may not happen this season.

  • Mike Davis - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 11/13/18 7:13pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) will continue to start despite sitting out Week 10 due to injury, according to offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, who offered no further details as to how Mike Davis or Rashaad Penny would be utilized in Week 11 versus the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: It doesn't come as much of a surprise Carson is returning as the starter, and he should be considered a risky fantasy RB2 for Thursday's game given the team's commitment to running the ball and the fact he will be the freshest back of the bunch. It is anyone's guess if Davis or Penny will see enough opportunity to be worth using in fantasy, making both low-end flex options at best.

  • Jerick McKinnon - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 11/13/18 5:04pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RBs Jerick McKinnon (knee) and Matt Breida will likely see significant time on the field together in 2019, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.

    Huddle Up: Shanahan noted during his media availability session Tuesday that he envisioned seeing the two backs in the backfield this season prior to McKinnon's ACL tear. The expectation now, as it was this summer pre-injury, is that McKinnon will serve as the Devonta Freeman to Breida's Tevin Coleman if the former doesn't encounter any setbacks in his recovery. Both backs figure to be RB2 candidates for fantasy purposes in 2019.

  • Pierre Garcon - WR - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 11/13/18 4:17pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (knee) is expected to return to practice following the 49ers' Week 11 bye.

    Huddle Up: Garcon hasn't done much when he has been healthy this year, totaling just 286 yards and one touchdown in eight games. He can only be played in good matchups as a desperate flex in deeper leagues.

  • Nick Mullens - QB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 11/13/18 4:04pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Nick Mullens will remain the starting quarterback following the Week 11 bye, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.

    Huddle Up: Mullens fell back down to earth in his second career start Monday night, but he played well enough to keep the starting job for now. He still can't be started in traditional leagues.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 11/13/18 2:52pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (knee) put in a full practice Tuesday, Nov. 13.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers hasn't been his usual self over the last three games as far as yardage is concerned, but he has thrown five touchdowns in that span. Keep him in your starting lineup in what could very well be a high-scoring affair with the Seattle Seahawks.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 11/13/18 2:48pm ET

    Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham (knee) was not able to practice Tuesday, Nov. 13.

    Huddle Up: Don't let a second straight missed practice get your hopes too down. If Graham returns to practice tomorrow he should be active Thursday night. Even Graham at less than 100% is a TE1.

  • Randall Cobb - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 11/13/18 2:45pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (hamstring) was held out of practice Tuesday, Nov. 13.

    Huddle Up: Cobb and the Packers are on a short week as they face the Seattle Seahawks Thursday night. If he isn't able to practice for a third straight day then it's unlikely he'll be taking the field this week.
