Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Chris Conley - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 11/11/18 9:15am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Chris Conley should see more playing time Sunday, Nov. 11, with fellow WR Sammy Watkins (foot) inactive with a foot injury.

    Huddle Up: Conley has been quiet with only four targets over the previous four games and 22 total in nine games this season, but with Watkins (and his 54 targets) set to miss his first game this season, Conley is a flex play with definite upside in one of one of the league's elite aerial attacks.

  • Sam Darnold - QB - New York Jets
    Posted 11/11/18 8:26am ET

    New York Jets QB Sam Darnold (foot) could return to action for Week 12's game against the New England Patriots Nov. 25, although it's possible that he is held out until the following week's contest versus the Tennessee Titans Dec. 2.

    Huddle Up: Darnold is considered week-to-week due to a severe foot sprain and he has already been ruled out of Week 10's game against the Bills in advance of a Week 11 bye. Josh McCown will serve as the starting quarterback in his absence and could be useful in two-quarterback leagues or as a bye week replacement.

  • Chris Carson - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 11/11/18 8:22am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is not expected to play in the Week 10 game, but the team will not make a final decision until pregame warmups, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Carson will play or has been ruled out. Mike Davis likely would receive most of the work at running back if Carson is ruled out and can be a low-end No. 2 running back or flex option.

  • Josh Allen - QB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 11/11/18 8:12am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen (elbow) is expected to be ready to play in Week 12's game versus the Jacksonville Jaguars Nov. 25, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Allen will miss his fourth consecutive game due to a right elbow injury Sunday, Nov. 11, but he appears poised to return following the team's Week 11 bye. He had been a limited practice participant throughout the week but the Bills want him to be completely healthy before he sees game action again.

  • A.J. Green - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 11/11/18 8:07am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) has been ruled out for Week 10 and is not expected to play in Week 11, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Owners should monitor Green's practice participation next week to see if he will have any chance to play in Week 11. Tyler Boyd and C.J. Uzomah would see more targets than usual if Green sits again and could be starting options in all leagues.

  • Robby Anderson - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 11/11/18 7:39am ET

    New York Jets WR Robby Anderson (ankle) will not play in Week 10's game against the Buffalo Bills. He had been listed as doubtful on the injury report after not practicing at all during the week.

    Huddle Up: Injuries are always unfortunate but Anderson had displayed good chemistry last season with Josh McCown, who will be under center versus the Bills this afternoon. WRs Quincy Enunwa and Jermaine Kearse should see additional targets in Anderson's absence.

  • Darren Sproles - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 11/11/18 7:16am ET

    Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (hamstring) is expected to miss multiple weeks due to his latest hamstring injury, according to multiple sources. One estimate projects that he will be sidelined for three to four weeks.

    Huddle Up: With Sproles likely sidelined until early December, Philadelphia will rely on the likes of Wendell Smallwood, Corey Clement and Josh Adams in the backfield. Of the three, Smallwood has the most fantasy value at this point and is worthy of consideration as a flex option.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 11/11/18 6:53am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee) is expected to play in Week 10's game against the New Orleans Saints, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Bernard was listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited practice participant throughout the week. Assuming that he is active versus the Saints, he should only be considered as a starting option in PPR fantasy leagues due to the presence of a healthy Joe Mixon.

  • James Conner - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 11/11/18 6:37am ET

    The Pittsburgh Steelers are optimistic that RB James Conner (concussion) will clear concussion protocol prior to their Week 11 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, Nov. 18.

    Huddle Up: Conner sustained the injury in Pittsburgh's victory over the Carolina Panthers Thursday, Nov. 8, so he will have a slightly longer-than-normal period of time to recover. Assuming that Le'Veon Bell does not report to the team within the next few days, Stevan Ridley and Jaylen Samuels would split carries in the backfield if Conner is unable to play versus the Jaguars.

  • Ryan Grant - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 11/11/18 6:14am ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR Ryan Grant (ankle) is expected to play in Week 10's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Grant was listed as questionable on the injury report after logging two limited practice sessions and one full session during the week. He will be suiting up for the first time since Week 6, so fantasy owners with decent alternatives may want to avoid using Grant until he can prove that he is both healthy and effective.

  • Kerryon Johnson - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 11/11/18 6:04am ET

    Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (ankle) is expected to play in Week 10's game against the Chicago Bears, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Johnson was listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited practice participant throughout the week. He should still be viewed as an RB2 in most formats even though Theo Riddick's presence means Johnson will be less involved in passing situations.

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 11/11/18 5:57am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot) will likely be held out of Week 10's game versus the Arizona Cardinals as a precautionary measure, according to multiple sources. He is expected to return against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Watkins was listed as questionable on the injury report but only participated in one practice session during the week on a limited basis. WRs Chris Conley and Demarcus Robinson could see additional targets in Watkins' absence, with Conley worthy of consideration as a flex option in deeper fantasy leagues due to the favorable matchup.

  • Jakeem Grant - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 11/11/18 5:40am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Jakeem Grant (Achilles') is expected to play in Week 10's game against the Green Bay Packers, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Grant was listed as questionable on the injury report and logged two partial practice sessions and one full session during the week. Despite increased involvement in the Miami offense over the past few weeks, he has not posted great numbers and can be avoided in most fantasy formats.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/10/18 10:17pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle, back) flew with the team as it prepares to play the Tennessee Titans in Week 10, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Although Gronkowski is listed as questionable on the injury report, he is not expected to go. For what it's worth, he did not fly with the team to Chicago to face the Bears in Week 7 when his back spasms first flared up. The smart play for the Patriots is to use their Week 11 bye to give their tight end the better part of four weeks to get as healthy as possible. As such, owners should have another option ready Sunday, as it is extremely likely New England would limit his snaps even if he is active.

  • David Njoku - TE - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 11/10/18 9:26pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (knee,ribs) is expected to play against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 10, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Njoku has carved out a steady role in the offense, delivering at least 50 receiving yards in five of his last six games. He's a TE1 candidate against Atlanta.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 11/10/18 7:36pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald faces the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 10, and the Chiefs have allowed the most receiving yards in the NFL this season.

    Huddle Up: Fitzgerald is building some momentum with Josh Rosen, scoring in back-to-back games and topping 100 yards the last time out. The Cardinals will likely be playing from behind against Kansas City, which should at least make Fitzgerald a volume-based WR3.

  • Tyler Boyd - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 11/10/18 7:26pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd will face the New Orleans Saints in Week 10 with WR A.J. Green (foot) ruled out, and the Saints have allowed the fourth-most receiving yards and the sixth-most receiving touchdowns this season.

    Huddle Up: Boyd is in the middle of a career year, and while he is going to draw more attention with Green sidelined, he should also see even more targets. He should at least be a WR3 against the vulnerable secondary of the Saints.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 11/10/18 7:13pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman faces the Cleveland Browns in Week 10, and the Browns have allowed an NFL-high 14 rushing touchdowns this season.

    Huddle Up: Coleman has four touchdowns in the last three games coming into Week 10, and he has a golden opportunity to add to the total against Cleveland. He can be a high-end RB2, especially in PPR formats.

  • Jordan Howard - RB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 11/10/18 7:03pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard has scored at least one touchdown in three straight games heading into a Week 10 matchup with the Detroit Lions, and the Lions are allowing the second-most yards per rush in the NFL.

    Huddle Up: The yardage hasn't been there for Howard this year, and he has topped 70 yards rushing just twice. That being said, the juicy matchup and his role near the goal line make him a solid RB2 option.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 11/10/18 6:41pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson said he would 'be lying' if he said he was happy with his current situation. 'I can't say I'm as happy not winning, not being productive,' Jackson said.

    Huddle Up: Jackson only has one touchdown in the last six games, but with his big-play ability, he can still be considered a boom-or-bust flex option.
