Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Derek Carr - QB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 10/16/17 4:13am ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 21 of his 30 pass attempts for 171 yards and one touchdown, but he was also picked off twice in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

    Huddle Up: It won't get much better for Carr, at least not yet. Carr has a Week 7 clash against the Kansas City Chiefs and it is a short week because of Thursday Night Football. Add to that Carr is returning from back spasms, and you might want to stay away until Carr gets his legs back.

  • Keenan Allen - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 10/15/17 8:57pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen finished with five catches on nine targets for 45 yards in a 17-16 win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Allen was held below 60 yards for the first time this season, but he has seen at least nine targets in every game. Being Philip Rivers' go-to option should keep him in the WR2 range on a weekly basis.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 10/15/17 8:48pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant recently requested a trade, sources reported Sunday, Oct. 15. His teammates and coaches are reportedly well aware he is unhappy with his current role.

    Huddle Up: Bryant was limited to just two grabs in the team's win in Kansas City, and he has been fighting with JuJu Smith-Schuster for targets and playing time behind Antonio Brown. A change of scenery might do him some good, as right now his fantasy appeal is rather minimal.

  • Cooper Kupp - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 10/15/17 8:47pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp posted two receptions for 35 yards on three targets in Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Kupp has two or more grabs in each of his six games this season, but he has visited the end zone just once over the past five outings. He is a decent low-end WR4 in PPR formats heading into Week 7 against the Arizona Cardinals in London, but he has less value in standard play.

  • Robert Woods - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 10/15/17 8:46pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods posted five receptions for 70 yards on seven targets in Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Woods hasn't visited the end zone in six outings this season, and he did lose a fumble in this one, buthe has at least 66 yards in three of his past four games. He remains more of a low-end WR4 or flex play heading into Week 7 against the Arizona Cardinals in London.

  • Todd Gurley - RB - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 10/15/17 8:46pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley rushed 23 times for 116 yards in Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars and he added one catch for four yards on his only target.

    Huddle Up: Gurley had a disastrous season from a fantasy perspective in 2016, but he has been a bona fide RB1 in all fantasy formats this season. He'll look to keep it rolling in Week 7 against the Arizona Cardinals over in England.

  • Jared Goff - QB - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 10/15/17 8:45pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff completed 11 of his 21 pass attempts for 154 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Goff didn't do much, as his defense and special teams picked up the slack. Goff was humming along early on and surprising from a fantasy perspective, but he's back to QB2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 7 against the Arizona Cardinals in London.

  • Marcedes Lewis - TE - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 10/15/17 8:44pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis did not post a catch on two targets in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Lewis had three touchdowns against the Ravens over in London back in Week 3 but he has done nothing since. He can be safely dropped from all fantasy rosters at this point.

  • Allen Hurns - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 10/15/17 8:44pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns posted three receptions for 37 yards on three targets in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Hurns was fairly productive once Allen Robinson went down in Week 1, scoring in Week 2 and Week 3. However, he has managed just nine catches for 100 yards on 16 targets over the past three outings. Treat him more as a low-end WR4 or flex play in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 7 on the road against the Indianapolis Colts.

  • Mike Williams - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 10/15/17 8:43pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) made his season debut Sunday, Oct. 15, catching his only target for 15 yards in a 17-16 win over the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: The rookie is going to need some time to develop, but he has the size to make an impact in the red zone sooner rather than later. He is an upside WR5 worth stashing.

  • Chris Ivory - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 10/15/17 8:43pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory rushed twice for just three times in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Rams, but he posted a game-high nine receptions for 74 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets.

    Huddle Up: Ivory had his best game of the season catching the football, a role he has been very valuable in the past. Heading into Week 7 he remains a useful RB3 or flex play in deeper PPR formats.

  • Marqise Lee - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 10/15/17 8:40pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee posted five receptions for 83 yards on 10 targets in the Week 6 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Lee was on the injury report with a ribs injury, but he did not appear to be hindered by the ailment since he had a game-high in receiving yardage. Still, he remains more of a WR4 in most fantasy formats heading into Week 7 against the Indianapolis Colts.

  • Hunter Henry - TE - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 10/15/17 8:40pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry finished with five catches for a team-high 90 yards in a 17-16 win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: After being held without a catch in two of the first three games, Hunter is starting to find his rhythm. He has TE1 upside going forward.

  • Blake Bortles - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 10/15/17 8:40pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles completed 23 of his 35 pass attempts for 241 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 6 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Bortles has just one multi-touchdown game through six outings, his four-touchdown outburst in England back in Week 3 against the Ravens. Treat him as a QB2 heading into Week 7 against the Indianapolis Colts.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 10/15/17 8:35pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon finished with 25 carries for 83 yards and a touchdown and caught nine passes 67 yards and a score in a 17-16 win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Gordon continues to handle a massive workload, making him a RB1 against any opponent.

  • Carson Palmer - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 10/15/17 8:27pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer completed 18 of his 22 passes for 283 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in a 38-33 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Palmer had his best outing of the season, and it was probably no coincidence that Adrian Peterson made the run game credible for the first time all year. If Peterson can continue to provide balance, Palmer could sneak back into QB1 territory.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 10/15/17 8:19pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald caught 10 of his 11 targets for 138 yards and a touchdown in a 38-33 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: The veteran continues to pile up targets, catches and yards, and he can be locked in as a WR2 heading into a Week 7 matchup with the Los Angeles Rams.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 10/15/17 8:07pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson finished with 26 carries for 134 yards and two touchdowns in a 38-33 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Playing from ahead against Tampa Bay's banged-up group of linebackers certainly helped Peterson pad his numbers, but it looks like he has a little more left in the tank than he was being given credit for. It might not hurt to try to sell high on Peterson after his big performance, but RB2 production isn't out of the question while David Johnson is out.

  • Demaryius Thomas - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/15/17 7:53pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (leg) suffered a lower leg injury in the Week 6 game against the New York Giants, but he was able to return.

    Huddle Up: The Broncos are super thin at the receiver position with Emmanuel Sanders also checking out due to what looked to be a more serious injury. Thomas returned after a brief time in the locker room, but he proceeded to lose a fumble on his first catch back on the field.

  • Doug Martin - RB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 10/15/17 7:44pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin finished with 14 carries for 53 yards and a touchdown and one catch for 11 yards in a 38-33 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Martin has scored in both of his games since returning from suspension, and he is clearly the team's lead back. He should be no worse than a RB2 moving forward.
