Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Cameron Brate - TE - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 10/15/17 7:40pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate caught six of his eight targets for 76 yards and a touchdown in a 38-33 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6, and he has caught a touchdown in four straight games.

    Huddle Up: Brate has become much more than a weapon in the red zone this year, and he should be treated as a TE1 in all formats at this point.

  • Emmanuel Sanders - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/15/17 7:39pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (leg) left the Week 6 game against the New York Giants in the third quarter due to an apparent right leg injury. He was carted from the sidelines to the locker room.

    Huddle Up: Sanders was helped off the field and he didn't appear to be able to put any weight on his right ankle.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 10/15/17 7:39pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant managed just two catches for 27 yards on three targets in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Bryant is battling Juju Schuster-Smith for targets in the Steel City right now and it appears the rookie is winning out. Bryant has devolved into nothing more than a low-end WR4 or flex option in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. The Steelers host the Bengals in Week 7.

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 10/15/17 7:38pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster posted three receptions for 32 yards in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs on his three targets.

    Huddle Up: The rookie has managed at least three receptions in each of his past three games, but his yardage totals are rather middling. He remains useful as a WR4 or flex option only in deeper leagues heading into Week 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

  • Mike Evans - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 10/15/17 7:34pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught three of his eight targets for 95 yards and a touchdown in a 38-33 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: It was the first time this year that Evans has been held below five catches, but it was also his most receiving yards to date thanks to multiple big plays. He remains a must-start WR1 regardless of the matchup.

  • Antonio Brown - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 10/15/17 7:34pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown racked up eight receptions for 155 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Brown had a 51-yard game-winning touchdown in the fourth quarter which not only sealed the win, but more importantly put fantasy owners over the 100-yard mark. It was just his second visit to the end zone in six games, and both scores have come on the road. He'll look for his first home touchdown in Week 7 against the visiting Cincinnati Bengals.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 10/15/17 7:33pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed 32 times for 179 yards and a touchdown in the Week 6 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He also added three grabs for 12 yards on six targets.

    Huddle Up: This is the Bell fantasy owners have been waiting for. After a slow start following his missing of training camp and the preseason, it took him a while to get on track. He had his biggest game against the best opponent the team has faced so far, and that's scary news for the rest of the league.

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 10/15/17 7:29pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 22 of his 32 passes for 290 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions after taking over for QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) in a 38-33 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Winston said he expects to return against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7, but if Fitzpatrick is forced to make a start, he showed he can at least play well enough to keep Tampa Bay's other fantasy options relevant.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 10/15/17 7:18pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 17 of his 25 pass attempts for 252 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 6 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: The good news is that he cleaned up the interceptions after having a career-high five picks last week. His only touchdown was an acrobatic catch and run by Antonio Brown in the fourth quarter, or this line would be even worse. He'll look for better results back home in Week 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals, but right now he is looking more like a QB2 in most fantasy formats.

  • Trevor Siemian - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/15/17 7:17pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (shoulder) is fine and is able to return in the second half of the Week 6 game against the New York Giants, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

    Huddle Up: Siemian made a diving tackle attempt to stop Janoris Jenkins on a pick-six, but he hurt his left shoulder instead. After treatment in the locker room he appears good to go.

  • Jordan Reed - TE - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/15/17 7:15pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed finished with four catches for 37 yards in a 26-24 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Reed has yet to reach 50 receiving yards in a game this season, and Kirk Cousins continues to spread the ball around to several targets. Continue to start Reed when he is healthy, but high-end TE1 production may be too much to expect.

  • Travis Kelce - TE - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 10/15/17 7:11pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce racked up four receptions for 37 yards on seven targets in the Week 6 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: The yardage total was Kelce's second-lowest mark of the season, and he has now failed to score touchdowns in back-to-back games for the first time. He'll get a chance to redeem himself to fantasy owners in Week 7 in a short week against the Raiders on Thursday night.

  • Tyreek Hill - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 10/15/17 7:11pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (head) left the Week 6 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers after a shot to the head, but the team determined he does not have a concussion, a source said Sunday, Oct. 15.

    Huddle Up: With Hill apparently checking out OK, he is in line to be ready for Thursday's game with the Oakland Raiders. Start him in fantasy leagues as you normally would, and the Chiefs DST also maintains its value as long as he is available, too.

  • De'Anthony Thomas - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 10/15/17 7:10pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR De'Anthony Thomas posted three receptions for 61 yards and a touchdown in the Week 6 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: The highlight of the day was a 57-yard touchdown midway through the fourth quarter. He entered with just three receptions for 22 yards all season, so the score was quite the surprise. Despite the score he isn't someone who warrants fantasy consideration in most formats.

  • Kareem Hunt - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 10/15/17 7:10pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed nine times for 21 yards in the Week 6 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, although he did post five receptions for a team-high 89 yards on six targets.

    Huddle Up: Hunt performed well for his PPR fantasy owners, but those in standard formats weren't as thrilled with the production. It's a quick turnaround with the Chiefs traveling to visit the Raiders on Thursday night in Week 7.

  • Jamison Crowder - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/15/17 7:03pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder finished with three catches on five targets for 15 yards in a 26-24 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Head coach Jay Gruden said earlier in the week that he wanted to have Crowder more involved, but it was another lackluster outing from the receiver. With just 121 receiving yards through six games, Crowder needs to be benched until he shows signs of life.

  • Alex Smith - QB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 10/15/17 6:59pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 19 of his 34 pass attempts for 246 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions while running four times for 13 yards in Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: The Steelers seem to be the kryptonite for Smith and the Chiefs. It wasn't a terrible game for Smith, but nowhere near some of the stat lines he has posted earlier in the season. He and his teammates do not have much time to mope, as they'll be back in action Thursday on the road against the Raiders.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/15/17 6:56pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Terrelle Pryor finished with three catches on five targets for 23 yards in a 26-24 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Since seeing 11 targets in Week 1, Pryor hasn't seen more than five balls thrown his way in a game. With several quality targets to contend with in Washington, it doesn't look like Pryor will come close to matching his production from last season when he was with the Cleveland Browns.

  • Samaje Perine - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/15/17 6:51pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine finished with nine carries for 23 yards and three catches for 24 yards and a touchdown in a 26-24 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Perine salvaged his afternoon with a receiving touchdown, but with Rob Kelley sidelined, it was Chris Thompson leading the team with 16 rush attempts. Even if Kelley missed more time, it is going to be tough to trust Perine as a starter against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 7.

  • Chris Thompson - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/15/17 6:46pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson finished with a career-high 20 touches against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 6, rushing 16 times for 33 yards and catching four passes for 105 yards.

    Huddle Up: With Rob Kelley sidelined, Thompson was leaned on heavily as a runner and receiver. He has been Washington's most explosive back all year, and he will elevate to RB2 status in PPR formats if he continues to touch the ball this much moving forward.
