Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Devin Funchess - WR - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 12/13/17 3:32pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess (shoulder) were listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Funchess has exceled as the team's No. 1 receiver, emerging as a useful WR3 or flex fantasy option across the board in most formats. He has a nice matchup against the Packers, the league's 24th-ranked pass defense.

  • Albert Wilson - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 12/13/17 3:31pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Albert Wilson (hamstring, shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Wilson has been targeted 19 times over the three games and posted 72 yards in Week 14. He should have a decent role in the passing game this week but can be avoided this week.

  • Brandin Cooks - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/13/17 3:26pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks (hand) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Cooks was targeted seven times in Week 14 but finished the game with only one catch for 38 yards. He has been quiet in each of the last two games but should have a favorable matchup this week. He can be at least a No. 2 fantasy option for owners this week.

  • Tom Brady - QB - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/13/17 3:21pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (Achilles') fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Brady is coming off one of his most disappointing starts of the season in Week 14 but has had success against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the past. He should be considered a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

  • Chris Hogan - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/13/17 3:16pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Hogan returned to the lineup in Week 14 but was held to one catch for five yards during the game. He should have a better game against the Pittsburgh Steelers this week and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 12/13/17 3:11pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Bryant probably will be able to play in Week 15 but will drop to the No. 3 receiver for the Steelers with JuJu Smith-Schuster back in the lineup. He has posted decent numbers the last several weeks but can be benched if owners have better options available.

  • Damien Williams - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 12/13/17 3:06pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams (shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Williams has been dealing with the injury for several weeks and probably will need to practice at some point this week if he wants a chance to play in Week 15. Kenyan Drake has been playing well since Williams has been sidelined and can be a No. 2 fantasy running back if he starts again.

  • Hunter Henry - TE - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 12/13/17 3:00pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry (calf) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Henry has been very dependable over the past three games, finishing with at least four grabs and at least 50 yards in each outings. He has also visited the end zone twice during the span. He remains a solid low-end TE1 heading into Saturday's game in Kansas City.

  • Kendall Wright - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 12/13/17 2:56pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Kendall Wright (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Wright went off last week as Mitchell Trubisky's go-to target, but that could have just been a flash in the pan. Wright is a risky play in Week 15, especially if he'll be shadowed by Detroit Lions cornerback Darius Slay.

  • Emmanuel Sanders - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 12/13/17 2:53pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) was able to practice fully on Wednesday, Dec. 13, and he has been removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 15 game against the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Sanders has been horrible over his past four games, averaging just 13.5 yards per game. His last touchdown came back on Sept. 17, going nine straight games without a score. He hasn't been the same since injuring himself in mid-October and has devolved into more of a WR4 at this point.

  • Ameer Abdullah - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 12/13/17 2:48pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) was a full practice participant Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Abdullah is expected to return this week after a multiple-week absence. Unfortunately, he hasn't been much of a factor when healthy this year and will split time with Theo Riddick. Keep Abdullah on your bench.

  • Michael Thomas - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 12/13/17 2:45pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (eye) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Thomas tied a season high with 117 yards last Thursday in Atlanta and he has a touchdown in each of the past two games. He is back as a dependable WR2 in most fantasy formats, and just in the nick of time for fantasy owners.

  • Alvin Kamara - RB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 12/13/17 2:45pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (concussion) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Kamara was knocked out of last Thursday's game in Atlanta, but he vowed to be ready for Week 15 and he appears to be true to his word. He remains a must-start across the board in all fantasy leagues when active.

  • Matthew Stafford - QB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 12/13/17 2:44pm ET

    Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Stafford toughed it out last week after banging up his throwing hand the week prior, so he'll be good to go after another week of recovery and practice. The Chicago Bears have defended the pass well this year, but Stafford remains a viable QB1.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 12/13/17 2:38pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. (ribs) was unable to practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Ginn appears to be an early question mark for Week 15. When healthy he is nothing more than a WR4 in most fantasy leagues. Circle back around Friday when the official injury designations come out before making a final decision.

  • Jermaine Kearse - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 12/13/17 2:37pm ET

    New York Jets WR Jermaine Kearse (shoulder) was listed as a full participant for practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Kearse was able to take part in a full practice session, which is a good sign, as he is getting used to a new quarterback under center. Bryce Petty will start for the injured Josh McCown (hand) the rest of the way, so Kearse should now be counted on as nothing more than a low-end WR4 in most fantasy leagues.

  • Robby Anderson - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 12/13/17 2:36pm ET

    New York Jets WR Robby Anderson (hamstring) was able to practice in full Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Anderson took a big step back in Denver last week, posting just three grabs for 27 yards, his worst yardage total since Oct. 8. It was a team failure, however, as Josh McCown was hurt and the team scored zero points. He had emerged as a solid WR2 in most fantasy formats, but he is more of a WR3 with Bryce Petty at the helm now.

  • Matt Forte - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 12/13/17 2:35pm ET

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Forte has been banged up for a good chunk of the season, posting 388 rushing yards with two scores and 34 grabs for 276 yards and one touchdown. He can be a useful low-end RB3 or flex play in PPR formats, but is more of a RB4 in standard play at this point.

  • Adam Thielen - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 12/13/17 2:18pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (knee) was able to work on a limited basis in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Thielen has three 100-yard games over his past five outings and he has scored four times in the past six contests. He has emerged as a dependable flex option in standard fantasy play, and as an excellent WR2 in PPR formats. He has four or more grabs in all 13 games this season.

  • Jerick McKinnon - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 12/13/17 2:18pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon has taken a backseat to Latavius Murray in recent weeks, totaling 14 touches in Week 13 and just nine total touches in Week 14 while managing 107 total yards from scrimmage over the past two outings. He was able to find the end zone once, which is nice, but he is more of a RB4 in deeper fantasy leagues at the moment.
