Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 4/18/18 1:07pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is working out in Miami as the Steelers begin voluntary workouts. Long-term contract negotiations are currently at an impasse between Bell and Pittsburgh.

    Huddle Up: No surprise here. Bell wants a long-term contract and Pittsburgh's focus is elsewhere right now. Time will tell how long Bell will hold out from Steelers activities, but he's arguably the No. 1 fantasy pick when he returns.

  • Ryan Tannehill - QB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 4/18/18 11:45am ET

    Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill will be the starter this season. That proclamation was recently reiterated by Miami executives, who added that a rookie quarterback would spend their season watching and learning fromTannehill.

    Huddle Up: The Dolphins can't be totally confident in Tannehill given his serious knee injury last year and overall underwhelming performance throughout his career. He is capable of being a quality starter but is not consistently good enough to warrant weekly QB1 merit.

  • Tarik Cohen - RB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 4/18/18 11:23am ET

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen is up to 190 pounds after bulking up this offseason.

    Huddle Up: Cohen is petite as far as NFL running backs are concerned, but he is as speedy and shifty as they come. He quickly came on to the scene in his rookie season, particularly in the passing game and on special teams. With Jordan Howard hogging most of the carries in Chicago, Cohen is a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 candidate in PPR formats.

  • Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 4/18/18 10:09am ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota's fifth-year option will be exercised, according to general manager Jon Robinson.

    Huddle Up: It's an obvious move for the Titans as Mariota is one of the most promising young quarterbacks in the NFL. He took a step backwards last year, but his dual-threat ability makes him a QB1 candidate going into a new season.

  • Tom Brady - QB - New England Patriots
    Posted 4/18/18 5:29am ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady still hasn't committed to playing in 2018, but people close to him believe he'll be back, according to sources. He wants to spend more time with his family, and there are people around him who would rather see him retire, sources said.

    Huddle Up: He'll be back and ready to go, and he'll be one of the first quarterbacks to target in fantasy.

  • Carson Wentz - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 4/17/18 12:41pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) said he has started running in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and torn lateral collateral ligament. The quarterback added that he feels good and is happy where he's at in his progress.

    Huddle Up: It's still unclear whether or not Wentz will be good to go for Week 1, but we'll take good news. Wentz was debatably the most productive fantasy quarterback before suffering his gruesome injuries. If he doesn't see any setbacks between now and Week 1 he should be one of the first quarterbacks selected.

  • Greg Olsen - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 4/17/18 12:30pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) said his injured foot is completely healed and that his focus this offseason is securing a contract extension before the regular season begins. If an extension is not achieved then Olsen said broadcasting for Monday Night Football would be a viable option.

    Huddle Up: Olsen is one of the best tight ends in the NFL when he's 100%. Before missing seven games last year, he had averaged 1,061.6 yards and 5.3 touchdowns in the previous three years. Assuming he plays, he should be one of the first three to five tight ends drafted.

  • Jordan Howard - RB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 4/17/18 11:27am ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard's agent said the Bears will not be trading their star running back.

    Huddle Up: Chicago's offense is coming together and Howard will arguably be its most important asset. He has averaged 1,217.5 yards and 7.5 touchdowns over his first two years and deserves attention as a low-end RB1.

  • Jameis Winston - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 4/17/18 8:15am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston's fifth-year option was exercised Tuesday, April 17. It's worth $20.922 million guaranteed for injury.

    Huddle Up: Winston has improved his completion percentage every year in his three-year career. He was on his way to surpassing his career-high 4,090 passing yards before injury last season. He'll be a solid midrange QB1 with some upside in fantasy.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 4/17/18 6:21am ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is 'frustrated and emotional' about being completely cut out of discussions that resulted in departures of WR Jordy Nelson and quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt, according to sources. It is a factor in his thought process when it comes to his contract extension.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers just turned 34, and he looked great before the collarbone injury derailed him last year. He should be one of the top quarterback options again this season, and the chip on his shoulder could be beneficial to fantasy owners.
