Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • O.J. Howard - TE - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 11/18/18 12:44pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the Week 11 game and is considered doubtful to return.

    Huddle Up: Owners should know more about the severity of Howard's injury in the near future. Cameron Brate would receive a bigger role in the passing game if Howard misses time and could be a starting option against certain opponents.

  • Kerryon Johnson - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 11/18/18 12:31pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) will not return to the Week 11 game because of his knee injury.

    Huddle Up: Johnson's status likely will be updated in the next day or two. LeGarrette Blount and Theo Riddick would receive more playing time if Johnson is facing a multi-week injury and would be valuable in fantasy leagues.

  • Kerryon Johnson - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 11/18/18 12:09pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) suffered a knee injury during the Week 11 game and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Johnson will miss any additional time because of the injury. LeGarrette Blount and Theo Riddick would see more playing touches if Johnson misses time and could be at least flex options.

  • Alex Smith - QB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 11/18/18 12:02pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the Week 11 game and will not return.

    Huddle Up: Smith may have suffered a serious injury, so owners will need to monitor the situation over the next few days to find out the severity of the injury. Colt McCoy likely would take over the starting job if Smith misses time but would not be a great fantasy option.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 11/18/18 12:00pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (thumb) suffered a thumb injury during the Week 11 game and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see how much time Jackson may miss because of the injury. Jackson has played well at times this season and could be a No. 3 receiver or flex option against favorable opponents.

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 11/18/18 11:55am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was benched in the third quarter of the Week 11 game Sunday, Nov. 18, after throwing his third interception of the contest. He was replaced by Jameis Winston.

    Huddle Up: FitzMagic has been negated by turnovers and poor red-zone offense of late, and the Bucs pulled the plug Sunday after seeing three straight possessions end in Fitzpatrick INTs, including a pick-six. Fitzpatrick has thrown seven picks and lost a fumble in the last three games since being reinstated as the team's starter, but Winston, of course, has also been benched with his own turnover issues, and it's simply going to be too hard to trust Bucs QBs going forward.

  • Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 11/18/18 11:48am ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (elbow) is questionable to return to the Week 11 game Sunday, Nov. 18, with an elbow injury and was replaced by Blaine Gabbert to start the third quarter.

    Huddle Up: Rough news for Mariota and his fantasy owners as the Titans' QB was just starting to pick up some steam in recent weeks. Mariota also suffered an elbow injury in Week 1 and wound up missing a start, but it's unknown if the latest injury is related in any way.

  • Matt Ryan - QB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 11/18/18 9:55am ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan has thrown 14 of his 21 touchdown passes at home this season.

    Huddle Up: Ryan faces a tougher-than-usual test today in the Cowboys, who have allowed the 10th-fewest fantasy points to opposing QBs, but still roll with Ryan with confidence.

  • Brandon LaFell - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 11/18/18 9:30am ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Brandon LaFell is in line to be the team's No. 1 wide receiver Sunday, Nov. 18, with fellow WRs Jordy Nelson (knee) and Martavis Bryant (knee) both expected to miss Week 11 with knee injuries.

    Huddle Up: LaFell has paced all Oakland wideouts with 10 catches for 106 yards and a TD over the last three games and is a deeper-league desperation option today for teams hurting for WRs.

  • Alvin Kamara - RB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 11/18/18 9:07am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara could tie Hall of Fame RB Jim Brown for the fourth-fewest games (26) to reach 30 career touchdowns. Kamara enters Week 11 on Sunday, Nov. 18, with 28 touchdowns in 25 career games.

    Huddle Up: Despite the initial fears following Mark Ingram's two-TD return in Week 5, Kamara has remained option 1A in the Big Easy and an elite fantasy back with an average of 21.2 (standard scoring) and 25.5 (PPR) fantasy points in the four games since.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 11/18/18 9:00am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will be looking for at least $17 million per season in his next contract and would also want more than $45 million in guaranteed money, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Bell decided to sit out the entire 2018 season and will be looking for a lucrative contract during the offseason. He should receive interest from multiple teams this offseason, but it is not known if he will be offered the type of deal he wants. He likely will be a No. 1 fantasy running back no matter where he plays next season.

  • A.J. Green - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 11/18/18 8:10am ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is not participating in pregame warmups prior to Week 11's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

    Huddle Up: It is becoming increasing likely that Green will be held out of the game, which is not surprising given that he was listed as doubtful on the injury report. Tyler Boyd is likely to benefit the most from Green's potential absence from a fantasy standpoint, although TE C.J. Uzomah and WRs Josh Malone, Alex Erickson and John Ross could see additional targets as well.

  • Brandon Marshall - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 11/18/18 7:54am ET

    Confirming a previous report, New Orleans Saints WR Brandon Marshall will not play in Week 11's game against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to multiple sources.

    Huddle Up: Marshall signed with the Saints less than a week ago, so it will take time for him to get accustomed to the playbook. At this point in his career, he probably has higher name value than fantasy value, so he's not worth rostering outside of deep seasonal leagues.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/18/18 7:23am ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) is expected to play in Week 12's game against the New York Jets, according to multiple sources.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski has missed three of his team's last four games due to a lingering back problem but is poised to return following New England's Week 11 bye. Through seven games this season, the 29-year-old has 29 receptions for 448 yards and only one touchdown but should still be considered as a starting option when healthy in all fantasy formats.

  • A.J. Green - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 11/18/18 7:03am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) will be a game-time decision for Week 11's game against the Baltimore Ravens, according to a source. Green made the trip to Baltimore and will participate in pregame warmups to determine if he will be able to play.

    Huddle Up: Green has been sidelined since injuring his toe in Week 8's game against Tampa Bay and was listed as doubtful on the injury report. If he is unable to suit up, expect Tyler Boyd to see the most targets this afternoon, although he is more effective with Green in the lineup.

  • John Ross - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 11/18/18 6:40am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (groin) is expected to play in Week 11's game against the Baltimore Ravens, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Ross was listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited practice participant throughout the week. He saw a more prominent role in the Cincinnati offense last week due to A.J. Green's absence but should not be considered as anything more than a flex option in deeper fantasy leagues due to a somewhat unfavorable matchup.

  • Chris Godwin - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 11/18/18 6:09am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin (ankle) is expected to play in Week 11's game against the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Godwin had been listed as questionable on the injury report but logged a full practice session Friday, Nov. 16. He had seven catches for 103 yards in his last game and should be viewed as a decent flex option this afternoon, even though he hasn't scored a touchdown since Oct. 14.

  • Robert Griffin III - QB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 11/18/18 5:52am ET

    Updating previous reports, Baltimore Ravens QB Robert Griffin III appears likely to see some playing time in Week 11's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Griffin will probably see his first action since 2016 this week because the Ravens frequently employ two-quarterback sets and Joe Flacco (hip) appears unlikely to play. However, Griffin will not be a great fantasy option because Lamar Jackson is expected to start and will receive a majority of the snaps.

  • Joe Flacco - QB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 11/17/18 11:16pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (hip) will not require surgery on his injured hip, according to a source. However, he will not play Week 11 against the Cincinnati Bengals and is 'in jeopardy' of missing Week 12 versus the Oakland Raiders. First-round pick Lamar Jackson is expected to start and see the majority of the snaps in his absence.

    Huddle Up: Regardless of whether the Ravens know if they are ready to move on from Flacco at the moment, Jackson could force their hand by sparking the offense in what should be a favorable matchup. One of the most dynamic athletes to come out of college in years - especially at the quarterback position- Jackson's fantasy upside is immense given his ability to turn any play into a touchdown as a runner or passer.

  • Keke Coutee - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 11/17/18 9:27pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) is expected to play against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 11, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Coutee will have some upside as a flex option in what could be a high-scoring game against the Colts, but there is always a risk that his hamstring injury will flare up.
