Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Giovani Bernard - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 12/14/17 3:02pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Bernard should have a good chance to play this week and could start again if Joe Mixon is not ready to play. He will be facing a tough Minnesota Vikings defense in Week 15 but can still be a flex option in some leagues if he starts.

  • Joe Mixon - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 12/14/17 2:48pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (concussion) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Mixon needs to be cleared by doctors before he is allowed to play, so owners will need to monitor the situation. He can be at least a flex option for owners if he plays, but they will need other options ready in case he is ruled out.

  • Brandin Cooks - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/14/17 2:36pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks (hand) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Cooks has been limited to 55 yards over the last two games but has been targeted at least seven times in five of the last six games. He can be considered a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues this week because of his big-play potential.

  • Tom Brady - QB - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/14/17 2:34pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (Achilles') fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Brady has played well against the Pittsburgh Steelers during his career and should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

  • Chris Hogan - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/14/17 2:30pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Hogan is coming off a disappointing Week 14 performance but should play better this week against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in most leagues because the Steelers pass defense has struggled at times over the last few weeks.

  • Damien Williams - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 12/14/17 2:09pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: It appears that Williams may have a chance to play in Week 15, so owners should monitor the situation. Kenyan Drake has played well since Williams suffered his injury, so Williams could see limited touches if he plays. Owners in most leagues probably can find better options and avoid Williams.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 12/14/17 2:00pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Bryant probably will go back to the team's No. 3 receiver if Smith-Schuster is able to play in Week 15. He probably will receive a few targets against the New England Patriots but can be avoided in most leagues.

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 12/14/17 1:52pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see if Smith-Schuster is in danger of missing Week 15. He has been a solid part of the passing game this season and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option if he is able to play.

  • Hunter Henry - TE - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 12/14/17 1:29pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry (calf) participated fully in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Henry is a threat to score week in and week out. He's found the end zone twice in three weeks while averaging 69 yards. Plus, the Kansas City Chiefs have yielded the ninth most receiving yards to tight ends this year (746). Henry is a solid TE1 option this week.

  • Mike Wallace - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 12/14/17 1:29pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check on his status later in the week to see if he is in any danger of missing the Week 15 game. He has recorded eight catches and 188 yards over the last two games and can be a No. 3 fantasy receiver this week if he plays because of the favorable matchup.

  • Greg Olsen - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 12/14/17 1:16pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Olsen was not targeted in the last game and has recorded only one catch for 10 yards since being activated from the Reserve/Injured list. He is one of the better tight ends in the league when he is healthy but may be a risky option for owners in the playoffs.

  • Devin Funchess - WR - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 12/14/17 1:13pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Funchess had a tough matchup last week but finished the game with 59 yards and a touchdown. He has been targeted at least seven times in four of the last five games and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver this week.

  • Jermaine Kearse - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 12/14/17 1:10pm ET

    New York Jets WRs Robby Anderson (hamstring) and Jermaine Kearse (shoulder) participated fully in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: The loss of Josh McCown is a substantial one for both Anderson and Kearse. It is now up to Bryce Petty to lead the Jets against arguably the most improved defense in the NFL in the New Orleans Saints. Anders is now a low-end WR2 or flex candidate while Kearse is more of a deep flex.

  • Jonathan Stewart - RB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 12/14/17 1:09pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Stewart is coming off one of his best games of the season in Week 14 and has five touchdowns in his last three games. He probably should be considered as at least a flex option in standard leagues this week against the Green Bay Packers.

  • Christian McCaffrey - RB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 12/14/17 1:03pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: McCaffrey has not been posting great numbers so far this season but will continue to be involved in the running and passing game. He can be a flex option in deeper leagues but probably will be more valuable in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 12/14/17 1:01pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Newton has been on the injury report for the last several weeks but is in no danger of missing the Week 15 game. He has been fairly quiet over the last three weeks in terms of his passing stats but has been making plays with his legs during that span. He can be considered a No. 1 quarterback in most leagues because the Green Bay Packer have struggled at times stopping the pass.

  • Charles Clay - TE - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/14/17 12:47pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Tyrod Taylor's return makes Clay's fantasy prospects more promising, but Clay has essentially had just two quality games all year. Over the last six weeks he has averaged a paltry 27 yards without a touchdown. Keep him benched.

  • Tyrod Taylor - QB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/14/17 12:43pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) was a full practice participant Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Taylor has risk written all over him. His running ability has always had the potential to save his fantasy value, but don't pin playoff hopes on Taylor this week coming off the injury.

  • LeSean McCoy - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/14/17 12:40pm ET

    Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (knee) participated fully in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: McCoy is coming off a heavy workload (32 carries), but it's nothing he can't handle. The Miami Dolphins are letting opposing running backs score at least once per game (total touchdowns) while averaging nearly 100 yards on the ground. Keep McCoy in your lineup as an RB1.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/14/17 12:36pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin was the only receiver of note in the snowstorm game last week, but he can't be counted on for continued success. Assuming he plays, Benjamin is merely a dart throw as a flex against an improving Miami Dolphins secondary.
