Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Orleans Darkwa - RB - New York Giants
    Posted 12/10/17 6:29am ET

    New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa (illness) is expected to play in Week 14's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Darkwa returned to practice on a limited basis Friday, Dec. 8, and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He should be viewed as nothing more than a low-end RB2 or flex option in most fantasy leagues, although it remains to be seen if the head coaching change will impact his role in the Giants' offense.

  • Sterling Shepard - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 12/10/17 6:22am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) is not expected to play in Week 14's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Shepard was listed as questionable on the injury report and participated in two practice sessions during the week on a limited basis. If he is deactivated for this afternoon's game, TE Evan Engram and WR Roger Lewis are among the players who could see more targets.

  • Matthew Stafford - QB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 12/10/17 6:02am ET

    Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) is expected to start Week 14's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Stafford appears to be on pace to start his 109th consecutive game and should be viewed as a low-end QB1 option in all fantasy formats due to the favorable matchup. He was a limited participant in two out of three practice sessions during the week and had been listed as questionable on the injury report but owners should have no reservations about starting him.

  • Ameer Abdullah - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 12/10/17 5:55am ET

    Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) is not expected to play in Week 14's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Abdullah was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. However, his possible deactivation for this afternoon could be related more to performance than health. RB Theo Riddick should see a decent amount of playing time and is worthy of consideration as a flex option in PPR fantasy leagues.

  • Robert Woods - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 12/9/17 9:46pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods (shoulder) is not expected to play against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 14, but he is expected back against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: With Woods sidelined again, Cooper Kupp has WR2 upside and should be starting in all formats. It also becomes a little easier to take a chance on Sammy Watkins as a touchdown-dependent WR3.

  • Zach Ertz - TE - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 12/9/17 9:22pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (concussion) will be checked out during warmups but is considered doubtful to face the Los Angeles Rams in Week 14, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: It's not looking good for Ertz. Start him if he happens to be cleared to return, but his owners need to have a backup plan already in place.

  • Mike Williams - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 12/9/17 9:12pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) is listed as questionable to face the Washington Redskins in Week 14, but he is expected to play, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Injuries have plagued Williams all year, and when he has been healthy, the rookie has done little on the field. Avoid him Sunday.

  • Emmanuel Sanders - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 12/9/17 9:08pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) is listed as questionable to face the New York Jets in Week 14, but he will play, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: The injury and poor quarterback play have led to a rough stretch for Sanders, but he could be worth a flier as a flex option against a Jets defense that has allowed the second-most receiving touchdowns this year.

  • Greg Olsen - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 12/9/17 8:48pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) is listed as questionable to face the Minnesota Vikings in Week 14, but he is expected to play, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: There is always a chance Olsen's foot injury could flare up during the game, but he is one of the top tight ends when healthy and can be used as a midrange TE1 against Minnesota.

  • Devin Funchess - WR - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 12/9/17 8:47pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess (shoulder) is listed as questionable to face the Minnesota Vikings in Week 14, but he is expected to play, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Funchess faces a tough matchup in Week 14, but he has been excellent since Kelvin Benjamin was traded and can still be used as a WR3.

  • Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TE - New York Jets
    Posted 12/9/17 8:15pm ET

    New York Jets TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins faces the Denver Broncos in Week 14, and the Broncos have allowed eight touchdowns to opposing tight ends this year, the third most in the league.

    Huddle Up: Denver has an excellent group of cornerbacks, and while the Broncos have allowed the fourth-fewest passing yards, they have also allowed the most touchdown passes. Tight ends have done plenty of the damage, so Seferian-Jenkins could make a sneaky streaming option.

  • Derek Carr - QB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 12/9/17 8:06pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr faces the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 14, and the first time these teams met this season, Carr threw for a season-high 417 yards and three touchdowns.

    Huddle Up: It has been a disappointing season for Carr overall, but a rematch with Kansas City could be just what the doctor ordered. The Chiefs have allowed the fifth-most passing yards this year, and Carr could be in line for another QB1 performance against his division rival.

  • Tyreek Hill - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 12/9/17 7:55pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill faces the Oakland Raiders in Week 14, and when he faced the Raiders earlier this year, he caught six passes for 125 yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Hill is coming off a 185-yard performance last weekend, and although he has been a boom-or-bust WR3 overall this year, he could deliver on his WR1 ceiling against Oakland.

  • Jason Witten - TE - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 12/9/17 7:34pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten faces the New York Giants in Week 14, and when he faced the Giants in Week 1, he finished with seven catches for 59 yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: The Giants have been one of the worst teams in the league when it comes to defending tight ends, and Witten exploited the matchup the first time around. If you need to stream a tight end in Week 14, Witten could be worth a look.

  • Kenny Britt - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 12/9/17 6:48pm ET

    Free-agent WR Kenny Britt (Browns) said he hopes to sign with a playoff contender if he clears waivers Monday, Dec. 11.

    Huddle Up: Britt should have some takers if he clears waivers, but this late in the season, the chances of Britt carving out a big enough role to have fantasy relevance are slim.

  • Damien Williams - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 12/9/17 1:46pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams (shoulder) did not participate in practice Saturday, Dec. 9, and has been ruled out for Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Kenyan Drake will receive most of the work at running back with Williams still sidelined. He will be facing an improving New England Patriots defense but can be a flex option in some leagues.

  • Dion Lewis - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/9/17 1:38pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (illness) was limited during practice Saturday, Dec. 9, and is listed as questionable for Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Lewis has been the team's leading rusher in each of the last two games and should continue to receive most of the carries if he plays in Week 14. He can be a No. 2 running back or flex option in fantasy leagues.

  • Tom Brady - QB - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/9/17 1:33pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (Achilles') fully participated in practice Saturday, Dec. 9, and has been removed from the team's Week 14 injury report.

    Huddle Up: Brady has dealt with the injury for the last few weeks but will be ready for a normal workload against the Miami Dolphins. He is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

  • Chris Hogan - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/9/17 1:12pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) was limited during practice Saturday, Dec. 9, and is listed as questionable for Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Hogan appears to have a decent chance to return to the lineup after missing the last few games. Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation for a better idea of his status. He is a risky option since the Patriots play on Monday Night Football but could be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option if he plays.

  • Emmanuel Sanders - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 12/9/17 11:57am ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) is expected to play in Week 14 even though he is listed as questionable, according to head coach Vance Joseph. Joseph said Sanders has been dealing with a sore ankle for a few weeks.

    Huddle Up: Sanders' injury has affected his play recently since he has recorded only 38 total yards over the last three games. He probably will be in uniform against the New York Jets but will not be a great fantasy option and can be benched by owners.
