Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Jamaal Williams - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 11/16/17 7:15pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams said he is comfortable being the lead back whenever called upon because he approaches every week with the same work ethic.

    Huddle Up: Williams ended up carrying the ball 20 times last weekend after Ty Montgomery was injured, and with Montgomery looking doubtful for Week 11, Williams should be in line for another heavy workload as the Packers try to protect Brett Hundley. If Montgomery sits, Williams will have RB2 upside against the Baltimore Ravens.

  • Damien Williams - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 11/16/17 6:57pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams will continue to split carries with RB Kenyan Drake, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen.

    Huddle Up: Williams has managed just 33 yards on 16 carries the last two games while Drake has rushed for 151 yards and a touchdown on the same number of carries. Although Williams will remain involved, Drake is the only Miami back worth starting right now.

  • Damien Williams - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 11/16/17 6:49pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake is worthy of more carries, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen, but Christensen said the formula with Drake and RB Damien Williams will not change.

    Huddle Up: Although Drake has been the better runner by a wide margin, both he and Williams have received 16 carries each over the last two games. Splitting carries limits Drake's ceiling, but he has done more than enough with his touches to be considered a flex play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 11.

  • Chris Thompson - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 11/16/17 6:31pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson faces the New Orleans Saints in Week 11, and the Saints have allowed the sixth-most yards to opposing running backs on screen passes. He faces the New York Giants in Week 12, and the Giants have allowed the second-most yards to running backs on screens. Thompson gained 199 yards off screen passes in the first five games compared to 18 yards in the last four.

    Huddle Up: Thompson has cooled off following a hot start, and there seems to be a correlation with his lack of production in the screen game. With some solid matchups on the horizon, Thompson should be safe to deploy as a flex option in PPR formats the next two weeks.

  • Corey Coleman - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 11/16/17 6:28pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) has had two good weeks of practice and will be ready for a full workload in Week 11, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

    Huddle Up: Coleman likely will enter the starting lineup in his first week back and has a chance to see a solid amount of targets. He could be at least a flex option in point-per-reception leagues and should also have value in standard leagues.

  • DeVante Parker - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 11/16/17 6:20pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker is not playing with the same 'edge' mentally since returning from an ankle injury, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen. 'We have to get him right back to that level,' Christensen said. 'He still could do some great things before this year is over and he could make it into a heck of a season.'

    Huddle Up: Parker has actually put up decent numbers, but injuries have limited him to five games. He could be a WR3 in a favorable matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 11, but his week-to-week availability is a constant concern.

  • Alshon Jeffery - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 11/16/17 5:24pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (ankle) said that he'll 'definitely play' in the team's Week 11 game Sunday, Nov. 19, against the Dallas Cowboys. He also mentioned that the ankle issue he has is something he's been dealing with.

    Huddle Up: Jeffery wasn't previously on the injury report, but it appears it's nothing new, so his owners need not worry. After all, the former Chicago Bear has actually been producing his best work of the season as of late, having amassed three touchdowns and 146 receiving yards over his last two games. He has a solid matchup on tap in Dallas this week, too, which could set him up to churn out WR1 production.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 11/16/17 5:16pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald is close to a one-year contract extension with the Cardinals that would run through the 2018 season, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Fitzgerald has been playing well this season and currently has 60 receptions, 677 yards and three touchdowns in 2017. He should be considered a No. 3 receiver in all leagues and probably will have similar value next season.

  • Doug Baldwin - WR - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 11/16/17 5:04pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (hip) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Baldwin has recorded at least 90 yards in three of his last four games and has two touchdowns during that span. He should be considered a solid No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues this season.

  • Russell Wilson - QB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 11/16/17 5:03pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (jaw) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Wilson has been playing well recently with 11 touchdowns in the last four games and is second in the NFL with 2,543 passing yards in 2017. He will be facing a solid Atlanta Falcons defense but can still be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in all leagues.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 11/16/17 4:53pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Graham is dealing with a new injury but probably will be ready to play in Week 11. He has caught six touchdowns in the last five games and has been targeted at least five times in all but one game in 2017. He can be considered a No. 1 tight end in all leagues if he is active.

  • Martellus Bennett - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/16/17 4:52pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (hamstring, shoulder) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: In his first game since re-joining the Patriots, Bennett managed to catch all three of his targets for 38 yards, but that's about the most you can expect from the 30-year-old with Gronk around. Thus, Bennett is simply a TE2 that is more of a dart toss than anything else.

  • Danny Amendola - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/16/17 4:45pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: The appeal with rolling with Amendola is that Chris Hogan is likely to be inactive again, but in that same scenario last week, the former Ram only managed four catches on four targets for 36 yards against the Broncos. He'll have a considerably easier matchup opposite the Raiders in Week 11, but he remains a risky play regardless. Amendola is better suited for PPR formats.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 11/16/17 4:04pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Despite having just one touchdown on the year, Jones can still be a strong WR1 option on any given week, especially this one as he'll be facing a Seahawks defense that will be missing a couple of key players. Jones is overdue for some scores, so hopefully that number begins to ascend towards its norm on Monday.

  • Philip Rivers - QB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 11/16/17 3:47pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers (concussion) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Rivers still needs to pass his concussion tests but appears to be on track to play this week against the Buffalo Bills. He has thrown for nine touchdowns and three interceptions over the last five games. Owners in deeper leagues could consider Rivers a low-end No. 1 quarterback if he is active.

  • Demaryius Thomas - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 11/16/17 3:36pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Since he was a limited participant on Wednesday, this news should ensure he's out there on Sunday. Even with Brock Osweiler at quarterback, Thomas proved last week that he can still be a dependable WR2, as he managed to draw at least eight targets for the fourth time in five games, not to mention while delivering a touchdown for the second consecutive Sunday.

  • Brock Osweiler - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 11/16/17 3:35pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (shoulder) practiced in full Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Osweiler was a limited participant on Wednesday, so this development should point to him starting opposite the Bengals on Sunday. However, he's really just an option for two-quarterback formats, though he could prove to be useful in such leagues after a surprisingly solid showing against the Patriots in Week 10.

  • Brandon LaFell - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 11/16/17 3:23pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (knee) was upgraded to limited at practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: LaFell is coming off by far his best game of the campaign, when he recorded six catches on 10 targets for 95 yards and his second touchdown of the season, but it's hard recommending him here for one of the toughest possible matchups a receiver can have. LaFell and the Bengals travel to Denver on Sunday, and thus, owners should stay away from the six-year veteran.

  • Dez Bryant - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 11/16/17 3:21pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Bryant should be able to play in Week 11 and will be a big part of the passing game. He should be at least a No. 2 fantasy receiver in all leagues as long as he is healthy.

  • Jamison Crowder - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 11/16/17 3:12pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Crowder appears to be on track to play in Week 11 and should have his normal role in the passing game. He has posted at least 75 yards in each of the last two games and can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in most leagues.
