Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Sterling Shepard - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 12/10/17 5:39pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) finished with two receptions for 16 yards and three targets in Week 14 against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Shepard was back, and so was Eli Manning, but Shepard looked awfully sluggish. It was Roger Lewis stepping up with 11 targets and seven receptions. Shepard has the ability to be the No. 1 receiver until Odell Beckham Jr. returns next season, but he has had trouble staying healthy lately.

  • Roger Lewis - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 12/10/17 5:38pm ET

    New York Giants WR Roger Lewis ended up with seven receptions and 46 yards on 11 targets in Week 14 against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Lewis certainly looked like a guy who could be useful in PPR formats, but he'll need to do it more than just once. He entered this game with a total of just 17 catches over his past 11 outings.

  • Orleans Darkwa - RB - New York Giants
    Posted 12/10/17 5:37pm ET

    New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa was limited to 29 yards on 10 rushes in Week 14 against the Dallas Cowboys and he added two catches for 15 yards on three targets.

    Huddle Up: The starting job for Darkwa appears to be slipping away, as rookie Wayne Gallman is coming on and gaining a lot of confidence. Darkwa averaged just 2.9 yards per rush in Week 14, while Gallman was good for 4.9 yards per tote. At this point Darkwa is only worth using as a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option in deeper leagues heading into Week 15.

  • Wayne Gallman - RB - New York Giants
    Posted 12/10/17 5:36pm ET

    New York Giants RB Wayne Gallman rushed 12 times for 59 yards in Week 14 against the Dallas Cowboys and he added seven receptions for 40 yards on nine targets.

    Huddle Up: Gallman outperformed Orleans Darkwa and is likely to continue on seeing a majority of the touches in the backfield for the rebuilding Giants. He has a little bit of long-term fantasy appeal in dynasty leagues, too.

  • Eli Manning - QB - New York Giants
    Posted 12/10/17 5:35pm ET

    New York Giants QB Eli Manning completed 31 of his 46 pass attempts for 228 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Week 14 loss against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Manning had his consecutive starts streak snapped last week when Geno Smith was used in Ben McAdoo's last game as head coach. Manning was back, but so was the mediocrity. He is best used as a QB2 in most fantasy leagues at this point.

  • Jason Witten - TE - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 12/10/17 5:30pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten had just one reception in Week 14 against the New York Giants but it was good for a 20-yard touchdown reception.

    Huddle Up: Witten has been limited to one catch in four of his past six outings. The good news is he has found the end zone in two straight games, but he is a very risky fantasy option heading into Week 15 due to his inconsistency lately.

  • Cole Beasley - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 12/10/17 5:30pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley finished with three receptions for 59 yards on his five targets in Week 14 against the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Beasley has two or more receptions in seven straight outings, but he remains more of a WR4 in most PPR leagues heading into Week 15 against the Oakland Raiders.

  • Dez Bryant - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 12/10/17 5:29pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant racked up three receptions for 73 yards and a touchdown on five targets in the Week 14 win against the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Bryant has back-to-back touchdowns for the third time this season, and his 73 yards actually tied his most since Oct. 1. He is still looking for his first 100-yard game of 2017 and has been more of a WR2 in most fantasy leagues. The Cowboys meet the Raiders on the road in Week 15.

  • Rod Smith - RB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 12/10/17 5:29pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Rod Smith rushed six times for 47 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the New York Giants and he added five receptions for a game-high 113 yards and another score on his five targets.

    Huddle Up: Smith looked great, rushing for 7.8 yards per attempt to just 3.3 per carry for Alfred Morris. He likely will eat into the touches of Morris in Week 15, the final game before Ezekiel Elliott returns from his six-game suspension. He could have a one-week window to work as a RB3 or flex option for fantasy owners.

  • Alfred Morris - RB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 12/10/17 5:28pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris rushed 19 times for 62 yards in Week 14 against the New York Giants and he added three receptions for 23 yards on his three targets.

    Huddle Up: It was a workmanlike 85 scrimmage yards, as he averaged 3.3 yards per rush and didn't have a run longer than nine yards. He has been a decent RB3 or flex option in most fantasy leagues and he has one more game to carry the mail exclusively before Ezekiel Elliott's suspension comes to an end. Rod Smith totaled 160 yards from scrimmage with two touchdowns and could eat into the touches of Morris, too.

  • Dak Prescott - QB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 12/10/17 4:41pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 20 of his 30 pass attempts for a season-high 332 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 14 game against the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Prescott obviously didn't suffer too badly from the bruised throwing hand he suffered last Thursday against the Redskins. It was his first 300-game of the season and the three scores tied a season best. He could be a useful fantasy option for Week 15 against the Oakland Raiders.

  • Josh McCown - QB - New York Jets
    Posted 12/10/17 4:34pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New York Jets QB Josh McCown (hand) suffered a broken left hand in Week 14 against the Denver Broncos, head coach Todd Bowles confirmed Sunday, Dec. 10. The team isn't sure if this ends his season.

    Huddle Up: If McCown is forced to miss time it would mean Bryce Petty likely takes over as the team's starting quarterback. That's a huge downgrade for the fantasy value of receivers like Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse, etc.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 12/10/17 4:33pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson posted four receptions for just 33 yards on five targets in Week 14 against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Nelson has struggled to get on the same page with Brett Hundley, as Davante Adams has blown past him for the No. 1 receiver job. The good news for Nelson and his nervous fantasy owners is that an Aaron Rodgers return is just around the corner. Still, Nelson can't be trusted as anything more than a WR3 or flex option right now.

  • Davante Adams - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 12/10/17 4:24pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams finished with 10 receptions for 84 yards and two touchdowns on 14 targets in Week 14 against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Adams scored the walk-off touchdown in overtime to sink the winless Browns. He has jelled nicely to new quarterback Brett Hundley, taking over as the No. 1 receiver, with Jordy Nelson struggling to adjust. Aaron Rodgers is nearing a return, so it will be interesting to see if the situation changes down the stretch. Fantasy owners of Adams hope the beat goes on as he is playing well.

  • Randall Cobb - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 12/10/17 4:23pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb finished with eight catches for 39 yards on his eight targets in Week 14 against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Cobb bounced back after being blanked against the Buccaneers, posting his most catches since Week 1 against the Seahawks. The yardage total was still low and he remains more of a WR4 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 15.

  • Aaron Jones - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 12/10/17 4:23pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones rushed four times for minus-2 yards in Week 14 against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Jones did nothing while Jamaal Williams totaled 22 touches, 118 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns. If you were depending on Jones to be the bellcow in Green Bay, it doesn't appear that will be the case into Week 15 and beyond.

  • Jamaal Williams - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 12/10/17 4:22pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams rushed 15 times for 49 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the Cleveland Browns and he added seven catches for 69 yards and a score on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: Williams had a giant game, leading the way with 22 touches. Meanwhile, Aaron Jones had four runs for minus-2 yards, so it appears Williams is going to be the leading back heading into Week 15 and beyond.

  • Brett Hundley - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 12/10/17 4:21pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Brett Hundley completed 35 of his 46 pass attempts for 265 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 14 game against the Cleveland Browns. He also ran 31 yards on seven attempts.

    Huddle Up: Hundley led the team's comeback after trailing 21-7 heading into the fourth quarter. He tossed a touchdown in overtime to lead the team to a 7-6 record. Aaron Rodgers is nearing a return, but Hundley has improved and done a good job for those rolling the dice on him in DFS lately.

  • Duke Johnson - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 12/10/17 4:20pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson rushed six times for eight yards in Week 14 against the Green Bay Packers and he added four grabs for 41 yards and a score.

    Huddle Up: Johnson appears to be over a shoulder injury which was bugging him, but he'll need more yardage to be anything more than a WR3 or flex option in deeper PPR leagues.

  • Corey Coleman - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 12/10/17 4:19pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman finished with five receptions for 62 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the Green Bay Packers on his six targets.

    Huddle Up: Coleman visited the end zone for the first time since Week 1, as he is totally back from his hand injury now. He bounced back nicely after getting blanked last week against the Chargers. He can be trusted as a WR4 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 15.
