Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Greg Olsen - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/16/18 10:05am ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) is holding off surgery and hopes to return to the lineup in four to five weeks, according to sources. He likely will re-evaluate the injury after the season.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation over the next few weeks to see when Olsen will return. Ian Thomas and Chris Manhertz will receive most of the playing time at tight end for now, but neither player is a strong fantasy option.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/16/18 10:00am ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Martavis Bryant will be allowed to play while his year-long substance-abuse suspension is under appeal, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Sunday, Sept. 16.

    Huddle Up: Bryant was re-signed after the Raiders' Week 1 loss, and his appeal could take a few weeks to decide. In the meantime, though, Bryant is best left out of fantasy lineups until there's an idea on how much he might be used.

  • Carson Wentz - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/16/18 9:42am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) is on track to return for the Week 3 game against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, Sept. 23, according to sources. Wentz has not played in 2018 as he recovers from his late-2017 knee injury, and still must be medically cleared to return.

    Huddle Up: Wentz's 2018 debut was expected to come sooner rather than later, so this is good news for those fantasy general managers who have rostered two QBs with Wentz on the bench.

  • Will Fuller - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 9/16/18 9:32am ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) is active for the Week 2 game against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, Sept. 16.

    Huddle Up: Fuller will make his debut after sitting out Week 1, providing a boost for QB DeShaun Watson and the rest of the offense, and is worthy of flex consideration. Still, temper your fantasy expectations after his unrealistic 2017 stat line, which featured seven TD grabs among only 28 receptions.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 9/16/18 9:27am ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (foot) is officially active for the team's Week 2 game.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins should be a weekly No. 1 receiver in all leagues no matter the opponent as long as he stays healthy.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/16/18 9:25am ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (knee) is officially active for the team's Week 2 game against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers will be facing a tough Minnesota Vikings defense this week but should still be considered a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback despite the injury.

  • Davante Adams - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/16/18 9:23am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (shoulder) is active to play in the Week 2 game against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Sept. 16.

    Huddle Up: Adams is good to go after putting in limited practice work this week and is a solid WR2 despite QB Aaron Rodgers' own limited injury situation and the tough matchup against the Vikings.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 9/16/18 9:13am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (concussion, shoulder) is officially active for the team's Week 2 game.

    Huddle Up: Jackson is coming off an outstanding Week 1 performance, and the Bucs probably will throw a lot again this week. Owners can consider Jackson as a low-end No. 2 or a No. 3 receiver against the Philadelphia Eagles.

  • Blaine Gabbert - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/16/18 9:13am ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (elbow) is active for the Week 2 game against the Houston Texans on Sunday, Sept. 16, but, wearing a glove on his throwing hand, did only limited throwing in pregame warmups, and backup QB Blaine Gabbert may start under center.

    Huddle Up: It's obviously a situation to stay away from in fantasy as both QBs could end up playing against the Texans.

  • Paul Richardson - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/16/18 9:06am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder) is officially active for the team's Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Richardson was quiet in the first game but should still see a decent amount of targets in Week 2. He will have a favorable matchup this week and can be a flex option in some leagues.

  • Marlon Mack - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/16/18 9:04am ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (hamstring) is officially active for the team's Week 2 game.

    Huddle Up: Mack likely will receive the start but may share snaps with Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines. Owners could consider Mack as a possible flex option, but owners may also want to see him play before they consider him for their starting lineup.

  • Travis Benjamin - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/16/18 8:50am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (foot) is inactive for Week 2's game against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin had been listed as questionable on the injury report but was only able to participate in one practice session on a limited basis. Expect Mike Williams to see more targets in his absence, making him worthy of consideration as a WR3 or flex option in most fantasy formats due to the favorable matchup.

  • Travis Benjamin - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/16/18 8:19am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (foot) is not expected to play in Week 2, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Mike Williams probably will receive a few more targets if Benjamin is ruled out. He is coming off a successful Week 1 performance and will have a favorable matchup this week. He has a chance to be a No. 3 receiver in some leagues in Week 2.

  • Josh Gordon - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/16/18 8:06am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is interested in joining the Dallas Cowboys in a possible trade or a free-agent signing, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Gordon likely would be the top receiving option if he joins the Cowboys over the next week. His potential makes him a No. 2 receiver in all leagues as long as he does not have any off-field problems.

  • Josh Gordon - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/16/18 8:05am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is interested in joining the San Francisco 49ers in a possible trade or a free-agent signing, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Gordon will be with another team next week and likely would be a top three receiver for the 49ers if he joins them. He is a risky option because of his off-field issues but can be a No. 2 fantasy receiver in all leagues because of his potential.

  • Jermaine Gresham - TE - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/16/18 7:45am ET

    Arizona Cardinals TE Jermaine Gresham (Achilles') is not expected to play in Week 2's game against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Gresham was listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited practice participant throughout the week. TE Ricky Seals-Jones would start if Gresham is deactivated and has a very favorable matchup against a team that gave up 180 receiving yards to Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook in Week 1.

  • Carson Wentz - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/16/18 7:06am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) could be cleared for contact as early as this week, although there is still a possibility that he could sit out Week 3's game against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Wentz has been practicing on a limited basis for the last few weeks but the Eagles appear as though they want to err on the side of caution. When healthy, he is a QB1 in all fantasy formats. Nick Foles will continue to start for as long as Wentz is sidelined and is worthy of consideration as an inexpensive flier in daily fantasy formats.

  • Vance McDonald - TE - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 9/16/18 6:40am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald (foot) is expected to play against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2, according to multiple sources.

    Huddle Up: McDonald was listed as questionable on the injury report despite being a full participant in each of the team's three practice sessions during the week. He should be viewed as a low-end TE1 in most fantasy formats.

  • Davante Adams - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/16/18 6:31am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (shoulder) is expected to play in Week 2's game against the Minnesota Vikings, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Adams was listed as questionable on the injury report despite only practicing once during the week on a limited basis. He should be viewed as a WR2 in most fantasy formats despite the tough matchup because Aaron Rodgers will be back under center.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 9/16/18 6:08am ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (foot) is expected to play in Week 2's game against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins was listed as questionable on the injury report and was limited in practice throughout the week. He should be viewed as a WR1 in all fantasy formats.
