Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • T.Y. Hilton - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 10/17/18 1:26pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (chest, hamstring) was listed as a full participant in practice on Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: That's a great sign that he'll be able to return for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills after missing last week's contest on the road against the New York Jets. Circle back around Friday for his official injury designation. If he practices in full all week and is removed from the injury report, plug him back into the active fantasy lineup immediately.

  • Jack Doyle - TE - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 10/17/18 1:23pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (hip) was unable to take part in practice on Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Doyle has been sidelined since Week 2 due to his hip injury, meaning more reps for Erik Swoope behind Eric Ebron. When Doyle returns, he is likely to see limited targets with Ebron playing pretty well.

  • Jameis Winston - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 10/17/18 1:10pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (hip) practiced fully Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: The Cleveland Browns have yielded just nine touchdowns while picking off nine passes so far this year, but that doesn't make Winston completely avoidable. Don't expect the same output from last week, but at worst he's a fine start for those with quarterbacks on bye.

  • Brock Osweiler - QB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 10/17/18 1:08pm ET

    Miami Dolphins QB Brock Osweiler will make the start in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions in place of the injured QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder), head coach Adam Gase announced Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Osweiler went for over 300 yards in an overtime victory against the Chicago Bears last week, and Tannehill is expected to miss anywhere from 1-3 weeks. Despite his decent numbers against the Bears in Week 6, Osweiler is only worth using in deeper fantasy if you're desperate due to bye weeks and need a streaming option.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 10/17/18 12:50pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (back) was full go in practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Fitzgerald has been one of the biggest fantasy disappointments of the 2018 season. We need to wait until he starts performing consistently until we plug him into starting lineups on a weekly basis. As for this week, start him as a flex if you're desperate.

  • Case Keenum - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/17/18 12:41pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum (forearm) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Keenum has been underwhelming in his first year at the helm of the Broncos. The Arizona Cardinals' pass rush and pass defense isn't one to turn a cheek to. Keep Keenum on the bench if he's still rostered.

  • David Njoku - TE - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/17/18 12:24pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (knee) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Njoku has improved since Baker Mayfield was named the starting quarterback. He has received double-digit targets in each of his last two games and scored his first touchdowns of the year last week. In a scrumptious matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Njoku is comfortably in TE1 territory.

  • Chris Thompson - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/17/18 12:16pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib, knee) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: If Thompson can stay on the practice field throughout the week then it will be a good sign for his availability this Sunday. When healthy he's a solid PPR RB2 candidate.

  • Greg Olsen - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 10/17/18 11:55am ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Olsen saw seven targets last week, catching four passes for 48 yards. His limited status is likely just a precaution. Consider him a borderline TE1 going into Week 7.

  • Ryan Tannehill - QB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 10/17/18 11:25am ET

    Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) has officially been ruled out for Week 7, as expected, according to head coach Adam Gase.

    Huddle Up: Brock Osweiler will take the quarterback reins versus the Detroit Lions. He's not a recommended starter in traditional leagues, but you can do worse than Osweiler as a bye-week replacement or cheap DFS play.

  • Ryan Grant - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 10/17/18 10:38am ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR Ryan Grant (ankle) was not able to practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Grant has underwhelmed through six games this year even with T.Y. Hilton out of commission. Hilton could return this week, but even if he doesn't Grant would be a risky WR3 or flex proposition.

  • Jack Doyle - TE - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 10/17/18 10:30am ET

    Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (hip) was held out of practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Doyle has not progressed in weeks and doesn't appear to be ready to play this week either. Eric Ebron has been tearing up the gridiron in Ebron's absence and deserves TE1 recognition.

  • Josh Allen - QB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 10/17/18 9:05am ET

    Updating previous reports, Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen (elbow) is week to week with a sprained elbow.

    Huddle Up: Allen is of no use outside of dynasty leagues, which you should keep ahold of him in.

  • Derek Anderson - QB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 10/17/18 8:43am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Derek Anderson will start in place of QB Josh Allen (elbow) in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Anderson has no fantasy value, but he could bring stability to the offense that Nathan Peterman did not. That would allow for the other skill positions, like LeSean McCoy, to have some chance against the Indianapolis Colts.

  • T.J. Yeldon - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 10/17/18 7:07am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (foot, ankle) is out of practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Jamaal Charles might be thrust into the lead back role against the Houston Texans. However, he doesn't provide enough upside to warrant a flex start.

  • Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 10/17/18 7:06am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) is out of practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Fournette is iffy for Week 7 against the Houston Texans, and T.J. Yeldon (ankle, foot) is also banged up. Jamaal Charles might be the lead back, but he has very little upside in fantasy.

  • Ryan Tannehill - QB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 10/16/18 7:51pm ET

    Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) is 'highly unlikely' to play in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions, according to multiple sources. Tannehill is expected to be evaluated after two or three weeks of rest.

    Huddle Up: It means Miami could be trotting out Brock Osweiler until the end of the month. While Osweiler showed out in Week 6 against the Chicago Bears, there is plenty of evidence to suggest his presence will be more of a boon to opposing fantasy defenses than the Dolphins' offensive playmakers. Owners should feel somewhat confident about rolling with Detroit's defense this week and the Houston Texans' defense in Week 8.

  • Adam Thielen - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 10/16/18 7:28pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen has amassed 58 catches on 71 targets for 712 yards through six games. At his current pace, he will finish with 155 receptions, 189 targets and 1,899 receiving yards. Thielen is on track to finish 12 catches ahead of Marvin Harrison's record-setting reception mark of 143 in 2002. Only 11 receivers have ever recorded at least 189 targets in a season, while Calvin Johnson (1,964) is the only receiver to ever post more than 1,900 receiving yards in a season.

    Huddle Up: Simply put, Thielen is simply performing at a level many fantasy owners have never seen. While there is no reason to expect him to fall from the WR1 ranks anytime soon, it may behoove owners to see what they can get for him in a trade, as a record-setting pace is called that because it's hard to maintain. Among other factors to consider, the eventual return of Dalvin Cook should steal a few of his looks. Regardless, Thielen has cemented himself as a fantasy WR1 at the very least in 2018.

  • David Njoku - TE - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/16/18 7:26pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku has totaled 23 targets over the last two games (Week 5 and Week 6), the most of any tight end in the league.

    Huddle Up: Njoku has turned those looks into 13 catches for 124 yards and a touchdown. The second-year tight end has seen no fewer than seven targets and amassed at least 52 yards in each of the three games Baker Mayfield has started. It appears he has emerged as the rookie quarterback's second favorite option behind Jarvis Landry and should be considered an every-week starter until further notice.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 10/16/18 5:32pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (groin) is expected to undergo MRI to determine the severity of the groin strain he suffered in Week 6 against the Seattle Seahawks. Head coach Jon Gruden told reporters he was hopeful he could still play through the injury but also expressed concern about Lynch's healthy.

    Huddle Up: Gruden also told reporters he would not have an update on Lynch's status until the team comes off its bye in Week 7. While Jalen Richard has been the best fantasy-point producer behind Lynch in the Oakland backfield, Doug Martin would be the first in line to handle the 17.5 touches per week Lynch has been averaging if the latter is forced to miss any time. Until owners know more about Lynch's prognosis, they should make an effort to snag Martin off waivers.
