Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Kirk Cousins - QB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/15/17 6:42pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 25 of his 37 passes for 330 yards, two touchdowns and an interception and ran four times for 26 yards and a touchdown in a 26-24 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Washington almost blew a big lead, but Cousins finished with a strong stat line and has now accounted for multiple touchdowns in three straight games. Up next is a rematch with a Philadelphia Eagles team that kept Cousins in check in Week 1, but he is playing well enough to deploy as a low-end QB1.

  • Pierre Garcon - WR - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 10/15/17 6:33pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon caught five of his 12 targets for 55 yards in a 26-24 loss to the Washington Redskins in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Garcon didn't do a whole lot despite a season-high 12 targets, and the move to C.J. Beathard at quarterback may have played a role. The good news is he remained the go-to target in the passing attack despite the quarterback change. Consider him a WR3 candidate against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 7, especially in PPR formats.

  • Brian Hoyer - QB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 10/15/17 6:23pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB C.J. Beathard replaced QB Brian Hoyer against the Washington Redskins in Week 6 and completed 19 of his 36 passes for 245 yards, a touchdown and an interception.

    Huddle Up: It remains to be seen if Beathard will continue to play ahead of Hoyer going forward, but even if he is given the starting job, he doesn't need to be rostered.

  • Carlos Hyde - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 10/15/17 6:20pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde finished with 13 carries for 28 yards and two touchdowns and caught five passes for 47 yards in a 26-24 loss to the Washington Redskins in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Hyde has struggled running the ball the last two games, but he continues to see enough touches to deliver RB2 production most weeks. Expect more of the same against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 7.

  • Trevor Siemian - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/15/17 6:05pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian left the Week 6 game against the New York Giants late in the second quarter due to a left shoulder injury. He is questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Siemian was taken to the locker room, as he banged up his shoulder diving to attempt a tackle on Janoris Jenkins on a pick-six. Paxton Lynch is inactive with a shoulder injury, so Brock Osweiler replaced Siemian to finish out the first half.

  • Michael Thomas - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 10/15/17 6:04pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas posted three catches for 11 yards on six targets in the Week 6 game against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Thomas really laid an egg, which is disappointing considering the score was 52-38. If someone came home and checked the score, they probably thought Thomas was in beast mode, but he was mostly invisible. He'll look to rebound in Week 7 in Green Bay. Despite the egg-laying he remains a must-start fantasy option in most formats.

  • Willie Snead - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 10/15/17 6:04pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead posted one catch for 11 yards on three targets in Week 6 game against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Snead finally made his return after a three-game suspension and then a hamstring injury. It wasn't an impressive start. He'll look for better results in Week 7 in Green Bay, but for now he is only worth keeping on your roster for depth. Wait for him to knock off the rust in another game or two before relying on him as a starter.

  • Michael Hoomanawanui - TE - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 10/15/17 6:03pm ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Michael Hoomanawanui posted two grabs for 27 yards and a touchdown on three targets in the Week 6 game against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Despite Hoomanawanui finding the end zone he is nothing more than a desperation fantasy option when your primary option has a bye week. The Saints travel to meet the Packers in Week 7.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 10/15/17 6:02pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. hauled in four receptions for a team-high 66 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Detroit Lions and he added a three-yard rush.

    Huddle Up: Ginn's yardage total was his best of the season, and he has now found the end zone in two of the past three games. Despite the decent production, he remains nothing more than a WR4 or flex play in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 7 in Green Bay.

  • Alvin Kamara - RB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 10/15/17 6:02pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 10 times for 75 yards in Week 6 against the Detroit Lions and he added four grabs for 12 yards on four targets.

    Huddle Up: Kamara looked energized in the win, as he now doesn't have a future Hall of Famer in Adrian Peterson breathing down his neck. He is a solid RB3 or flex play, especially in PPR formats, and the clear-cut handcuff to Mark Ingram going forward.

  • Mark Ingram - RB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 10/15/17 6:01pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram rushed 25 times for 114 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 6 game against the Detroit Lions and he added five receptions for 36 yards on five targets.

    Huddle Up: It's like a cloud was removed from Ingram's head when Adrian Peterson was shipped to Arizona. While Peterson wasn't cutting into Ingram's time, perhaps he was not performing or was uncomfortable looking over his shoulder at the future Hall of Famer. It was smooth sailing in Week 6, and fantasy owners hope that continues in Week 7 in Green Bay and beyond.

  • Drew Brees - QB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 10/15/17 5:57pm ET

    New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 21 of his 31 pass attempts for 186 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 7 game against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: It wasn't a great game for Brees, especially with a 52-38 score on the board, but there were three defensive touchdowns from the Saints to prop up their score. Mark Ingram rushed for two scores, so that's why Brees only did what he did. He'll look for better results in Week 7 in Green Bay, but he will be battling Brett Hundley and not Aaron Rodgers. The Saints could use a run-heavy offense if they grab a lead against the inexperienced quarterback.

  • Golden Tate - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 10/15/17 5:56pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury late in the third quarter of the Week 6 game against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Tate had a nice game, so hopefully this injury isn't something to keep him out long. The good news is that he has two weeks to rest with the bye Week 7.

  • Jameis Winston - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 10/15/17 4:58pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) plans to play in Week 7 against the Buffalo Bills after leaving the game Sunday, Oct. 15, due to a right shoulder injury.

    Huddle Up: Winston was originally considered doubtful to return, but he was throwing on the sidelines trying to come back in. He could not throw like he wanted, so he didn't return and Ryan Fitzpatrick finished up. It's a tough matchup for Winston heading into Buffalo, so it might be a good idea to go another way.

  • Eric Ebron - TE - Detroit Lions
    Posted 10/15/17 4:55pm ET

    Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron managed just one catch for nine yards in Week 6 against the New Orleans Saints on a total of three targets.

    Huddle Up: Ebron appears to be behind Darren Fells on the depth chart right now. That's rather unofficial, but Matthew Stafford has found Fells for three touchdowns over the past two games while not trusting Ebron. The Lions are off in Week 7.

  • Darren Fells - TE - Detroit Lions
    Posted 10/15/17 4:54pm ET

    Detroit Lions TE Darren Fells posted two grabs for 26 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Week 6 against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Fells has hauled in three touchdowns over the past two games after doing nothing in the first four outings. Despite the scoring ways, Fells is only worth a look as a bye-week replacement or low-priced DFS option going forward. The team is off in Week 7 for its bye.

  • Golden Tate - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 10/15/17 4:54pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate racked up seven receptions for 96 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in the Week 6 game against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Tate had his largest yardage total since he opened the season with 107 yards on 10 grabs in Week 1 against the Cardinals. He has been a bit erratic so far this season, but he has WR3 potential when the matchup is favorable. Unfortunately the Lions have a bye in Week 7.

  • Marvin Jones - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 10/15/17 4:53pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones racked up six receptions for 96 yards and a touchdown on 14 targets in Week 6 against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Jones was the only player in the game with double-digit targets, and he had five more than teammate T.J. Jones. The yardage total was easily his best of the season, besting the 54 yards he posted last week. That's 12 catches over the past two weekends, so perhaps he can be trusted again as a WR4 in most fantasy leagues. Of course, just as he was building momentum the team has a bye in Week 7.

  • Theo Riddick - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 10/15/17 4:53pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed twice for eight yards in Week 6 against the New Orleans Saints while adding five receptions for 45 yards on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: Riddick is far more valuable in PPR fantasy leagues than standard formats. The Lions are off in Week 7.

  • Ameer Abdullah - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 10/15/17 4:52pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah rushed 14 times for 54 yards in Week 6 against the New Orleans Saints. He was also targeted twice in the pass game but did not have any catches.

    Huddle Up: The Lions continue to search for that elusive 100-yard rushing game, but it hasn't happened in four years since Reggie Bush accomplished the feat last in 2013. It won't happen again in Week 7, either, as the team is on its bye.
