Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Michael Floyd - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 10/15/17 12:39pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd (calf) suffered a calf injury in Week 6 and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Floyd recorded only one reception for five yards in the game and his status for Week 7 is uncertain at this point. Owners should be able to find better options to use and can avoid Floyd most weeks.

  • Breshad Perriman - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 10/15/17 12:20pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (concussion) suffered a concussion in the team's Week 6 game and will not return.

    Huddle Up: Perriman will have to pass his concussion tests before he is cleared to play again, so he is considered questionable for Week 7. He has not posted great numbers this season and should be avoided in all leagues.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 10/15/17 12:12pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (clavicle) officially suffered a broken collarbone and may miss the rest of the year.

    Huddle Up: He broke his left one in 2013 and missed seven games. This time it's the throwing shoulder side, so brace for the worst. The Packers turn to Brett Hundley, but given all of his weapons and learning opportunity behind Rodgers, all hope is not lost. Hundley is a fringe fantasy asset, and the receiving corps should be devalued across the board.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 10/15/17 11:48am ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (shoulder) is scheduled to undergo tests, but the Packers fear that Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers would miss a significant amount of time if he does have a broken collarbone, but owners should look for an update on his status in the near future. Brett Hundley would take over as the starting quarterback but is not a great fantasy option.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 10/15/17 10:28am ET

    Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (shoulder) suffered a right shoulder injury in Week 6 and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: The severity of Rodgers' injury is uncertain at this point, so owners will need to keep an eye on any update on his status. It would be a big loss for owners if Rodgers misses time.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 10/15/17 9:47am ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (undisclosed) left the team's Week 6 game early because of an undisclosed injury.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Rodgers will be able to return to the game. Rodgers is one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL, and it would hurt fantasy owners if he misses time.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 10/15/17 9:42am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is likely to receive the franchise tag from the team next season, even though both sides will continue to work on a possible contract extension. Bell is reportedly seeking a multi-year deal worth $15 million annually but the Steelers are unlikely to offer him that much money, according to multiple sources.

    Huddle Up: Bell has gotten off to a sluggish start this year after missing the entire preseason due to a contract dispute, with just one 100-yard rushing performance to date. That being said, the 25-year-old should still be viewed as a RB1 in all fantasy formats regardless of the opponent.

  • Michael Floyd - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 10/15/17 9:15am ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd is in the starting lineup against the Green Bay Packers in place of WR Stefon Diggs (groin).

    Huddle Up: Floyd made his season debut last week and finished with one catches for 19 yards. He should receive more targets this week and could be a flex option in some deeper leagues but could also be avoided if owners have better options available.

  • Leonte Carroo - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 10/15/17 9:00am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Leonte Carroo will be in the starting lineup in Week 6 in place of WR DeVante Parker (ankle).

    Huddle Up: Carroo should receive a few more targets than normal this week but can still be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

  • Willie Snead - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 10/15/17 8:58am ET

    Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) is active for Week 6's game against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Snead practiced on a limited basis throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He is likely to see a limited number of snaps this afternoon, so he should not be viewed as a great option in any fantasy format.

  • Jeremy Maclin - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 10/15/17 8:27am ET

    Updating previous reports, Baltimore Ravens WR Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) is inactive for Week 6's game against the Chicago Bears, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Maclin was listed as questionable on the injury report but had been a limited participant in the team's three practice sessions during the week, so his deactivation comes as a bit of a surprise. Expect Mike Wallace and Breshard Perriman to see more targets in Maclin's absence, with Wallace worthy of consideration as a flex option in most fantasy leagues.

  • Kenny Golladay - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 10/15/17 7:50am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is unlikely to play in Week 6's game against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Golladay was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. Marvin Jones should see more targets if Golladay is inactive but he should only be considered as a flex option in deeper seasonal leagues.

  • Breshad Perriman - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 10/15/17 7:44am ET

    Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman is expected to have a bigger role in Week 6 with WR Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) inactive for the game.

    Huddle Up: Perriman has only recorded four catches and 26 yards this season but could see more targets this week. He will be facing a solid Chicago Bears pass defense and probably should only be a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Bilal Powell - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 10/15/17 7:15am ET

    New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (calf) has been ruled out for Week 6's game against the New England Patriots, according to multiple sources.

    Huddle Up: Powell did not practice at all during the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report, so his deactivation does not come as a surprise. Matt Forte and Elijah McGuire are expected to split carries this afternoon and both merit consideration as flex options in deeper fantasy leagues.

  • Breshad Perriman - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 10/15/17 7:10am ET

    Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) is expected to play in Week 6's game against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Perriman was listed as questionable on the injury report despite serving as a full participant during the team's two most recent practice sessions. He only has four receptions through five games this season and can be avoided in all fantasy formats.

  • Brandon Marshall - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 10/15/17 7:10am ET

    New York Giants WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) said he is not considering retirement and plans to play in 2018.

    Huddle Up: Marshall will be under contract with the Giants next season but it is not known if he will remain with the team. He can be a No. 3 receiver for a team in 2018 but may be a No. 4 fantasy receiver in some leagues next year.

  • Matt Bryant - PK - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 10/15/17 7:09am ET

    Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant (back) is expected to play against the Miami Dolphins in Week 6 even though he is listed as questionable for the game.

    Huddle Up: Bryant has made all nine of the field goal attempts and can be a solid fantasy option in all leagues because of the Falcons offense.

  • Mike Williams - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 10/15/17 7:07am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) will make his NFL debut in Week 6's game against the Oakland Raiders, although he will be on a snap count.

    Huddle Up: Williams is too much of a risk to start in any fantasy format this week, although he is worth rostering in keeper and dynasty leagues, with his role in the offense expected to grow as the season progresses.

  • Jeremy Maclin - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 10/15/17 6:57am ET

    Baltimore Ravens WR Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) is a game-time decision for Week 6's game against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Maclin was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He had six receptions for 43 yards versus the Oakland Raiders last week but has been a major disappointment this season, so he shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a flex option in deeper seasonal leagues.

  • Willie Snead - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 10/15/17 6:41am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) is a game-time decision for Week 6's game against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Snead was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. Even if he plays, he is likely to see a limited number of snaps this afternoon, so he should be avoided unless you have multiple receivers on bye weeks.
