Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Breshad Perriman - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 5/25/17 1:13pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman is making his mark at organized team activities. TE Dennis Pitta said no one on the Ravens is making more plays at OTAs than Perriman.

    Huddle Up: Perriman looks a lot like a guy who will break out in 2017. Steve Smith and Kamar Aiken are gone and Perriman is now the No. 2 receiver behind Mike Wallace. Perriman may frustrate at times, but in standard leagues he deserves a look as a WR3.

  • Ryan Tannehill - QB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 5/25/17 12:24pm ET

    Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) said he is 100 percent healthy now after recovering from his anterior cruciate ligament injury last season.

    Huddle Up: It's been a struggle for Tannehill the last couple years. While he does have the ability to achieve QB1 numbers, it's best to draft him as a QB2.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 5/25/17 12:12pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) has progressed well enough that he has been cleared to take the field for organized team activities.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski's injury history is well-documented, but he remains the best at his position. It appears he's on track to be ready to play by Week 1, so he should continue to be the first tight end taken in fantasy drafts.

  • Laquon Treadwell - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 5/25/17 11:36am ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell is having a good offseason so far, according to offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. Treadwell has been 'on point' from a mental standpoint. He has done well route-running, catching the ball and blocking, too. Shurmur said he's pleased with the progress Treadwell has made from a year ago.

    Huddle Up: Treadwell will be playing behind Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen and will have to fight off Michael Floyd and Jarius Wright for playing time. On top of that, he's in one of the more underwhelming passing offenses in the NFL. The second-year receiver is no more than a late-round flier.

  • Victor Cruz - WR - Free Agent
    Posted 5/25/17 11:22am ET

    Free-agent WR Victor Cruz (Giants) is signing a one-year deal with the Chicago Bears Thursday, May 25. Financial terms were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: At 30 years old, Cruz is over the hill and has not played a full season since 2012. Furthermore, he'll have Mike Glennon throwing to him. He may have more opportunity for playing time than in most places in Chicago's relatively weak wide receiver corps, but Cruz would likely be cemented on fantasy benches anyway.

  • Charles Clay - TE - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 5/25/17 10:37am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay's (knee) ailing knee continues to be an issue. Head coach Sean McDermott said the knee is a concern to the Bills and something they'll keep an eye on going forward. Clay has participated in drills, but the Bills are taking a cautious approach with his workload.

    Huddle Up: Clay has 'only' missed four games in his two seasons with the Bills, but his production has not been up to par. He has not finished as a TE1 since 2013 with the Miami Dolphins and remains a TE2 heading into 2017.

  • Josh Doctson - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 5/25/17 8:38am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') has been impressive in organized team activities, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'The big thing for him is the confidence in his Achilles', and I think he's got that right now,' Gruden said. 'The past two days he's looked better and better. It looks like he can run down the field. He made a good catch down the sideline today and (he has) strong hands, we know that about him.'

    Huddle Up: Doctson flashed enough talent to be chosen 22nd overall in the NFL draft last season. He'll have to compete for a larger role, but he's definitely worth consideration in the latter rounds of drafts.

  • Jarvis Landry - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 5/25/17 8:10am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry is participating in organized team activities Thursday, May 25.

    Huddle Up: Landry is seeking a new deal, but he has yet to take the next step into the WR1 class in fantasy. He had a 94-1,136-4 line last season, which is good, but he has just 13 scores in three seasons. He'll be a high-end WR2 in drafts.

  • Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 5/25/17 7:52am ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (leg) took part in the first 10 organized team activities Tuesday, May 23. He did everything in the walkthrough, individual drills and in 7-on-7 drills. ?It felt great,? Mariota said after practice. 'Four months ago I wasn't sure I was going to be able to participate in OTAs, and being able to do some of the drills,' Mariota said. 'I was very happy and very grateful. It was fun to be out there with the guys, and I enjoyed it.'

    Huddle Up: Mariota took some strides in his second year with 3,426 passing yards, 26 touchdowns to nine interceptions, 349 rushing yards and two rushing scores. He also completed 61.2 percent of his passes. He's a midrange QB1 option in fantasy.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 5/25/17 6:25am ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch isn't participating in organized team activities, but he has been present this week getting acquainted with teammates.

    Huddle Up: Some rust should be expected of Lynch after a one-year hiatus and missing half of the previous season due to injury. He should still see enough volume on first and second downs to be a low-end RB2 in fantasy.

  • Jaron Brown - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 5/24/17 9:53pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Jaron Brown (knee) participated in a portion of OTAs on Tuesday, May 23, and Wednesday, May 24, taking part in individual drills while sitting out team activities. Brown suffered a season-ending torn ACL last October. 'We?re keeping him out of the team drills because I don?t want to see him cut, but he?s running routes full speed. He looks great. Actually, his computer numbers are faster than they?ve ever been,' head coach Bruce Arians said.

    Huddle Up: With Larry Fitzgerald nearing the end, the 179-pound John Brown a bit on the small side and the 160-pound J.J. Nelson definitely on the small side, the Cardinals could use someone like the 6-2, 205-pound Jaron Brown to step up and fill the void left behind by Michael Floyd. He has yet to 22 catches in his first four seasons, however, so expectations should be tempered. He can be avoided in fantasy drafts this summer.

  • Laquon Treadwell - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 5/24/17 9:36pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell has reported the run with the first-team offense alongside Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen during OTAs, according to Minneapolis Star Tribune's Matt Vensel.

    Huddle Up: Treadwell is likely getting the nod over Michael Floyd given his experience in Pat Shurmur's system and the fact he is last year's first-round pick. The Vikings obviously want to see Treadwell succeed following his injury-ravaged rookie campaign, but Floyd will get his shot if things don't fall into place for Treadwell in 2017. Dynasty leaguers should hold Treadwell for now, but redraft owners are advised to pass.

  • Kevin White - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 5/24/17 9:28pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Kevin White has spent the last few months working to align his stride after a stress fracture in his left tibia ruined his rookie season and a left fibular spiral fracture and severe ankle ligament damage cost him 12 games last season, according to the Chicago Tribune's Rich Campbell.

    Huddle Up: Although Cameron Meredith figures to be the Bears' top receiver, White has the most natural of any wideout on the roster. Whether or not his body will hold up is a different story. Based on talent alone, White is worth the gamble in the later rounds in fantasy drafts this summer, but his injury woes make him someone who will be difficult to depend on for any length of time.

  • Dak Prescott - QB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 5/24/17 8:53pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has emerged as a more vocal leader entering his second season, and quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson recently said he?s seen nothing from Prescott that should worry anyone about the reigning rookie of the year taking his foot off the gas. 'There has been no complacency at all. Nothing is too big for that kid. He?s improved strength-wise, flexibility-wise, speed-wise, quickness-wise, so he?s not resting on anything that went on last year,' Wilson said.

    Huddle Up: Prescott never did look like a rookie in 2016, so we shouldn't be all that surprised he seems to be ahead of the curve entering his second year either. The Cowboys will remain a run-oriented offense, but there's really no reason to believe Prescott can't continue to perform at the fantasy QB1 level he did for the bulk of last season.

  • Branden Oliver - RB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 5/24/17 8:17pm ET

    San Diego Chargers RB Branden Oliver has caught the attention of QB Philip Rivers this spring. 'He looks good. He looks explosive. ? I think he really is a great complement to Melvin (Gordon). Their styles are different, but similar. (We) have two backs who can run all the same plays, but it?s a little different. ? Their movements are different. I think BO can be a heck of a changeup for us,' Rivers said.

    Huddle Up: Due mostly to injury, Oliver has faded into fantasy oblivion a bit, but some owners will fondly remember his 114-yard, two-touchdown performance against the New York Jets as a rookie in 2014. If he is fully healthy - and it sounds like he might be - Oliver should be considered a strong handcuff option for Gordon owners this season.

  • C.J. Spiller - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 5/24/17 7:26pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB C.J. Spiller reportedly looks as 'healthy and spry as he has in years,' according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Although unlikely, it wouldn't be terribly surprising if Spiller is actually healthy this spring after spending so little time on the field last season. Entering his age-30 season and on a team with two very good options at his position already in Spencer Ware and rookie Kareem Hunt, Spiller would do well to find a part-time role on passing downs, although he could make some noise as a returner.

  • Jay Ajayi - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 5/24/17 7:02pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi could get as many as 350 rushing attempts if the running back stays healthy and plays all 16 games, according to head coach Adam Gase.

    Huddle Up: Tis the season for coaches and their unlikely workload predictions for their running backs. Only DeMarco Murray in 2014 reached the 350-carry threshold over the last four seasons, and only Ezekiel Elliott topped 300 last season. Ajayi would need to average 21.9 attempts to reach the mark - 4.5 more than he did last season. Ajayi could push for 300 carries if he stays healthy, however, and he should be more involved in the passing game this season, so he should be a solid RB1 fantasy option this season.

  • Kenny Britt - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 5/24/17 3:14pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Kenny Britt (undisclosed) did not participate in organized team activities Wednesday, May 24, but head coach Hue Jackson said he expects Britt will be back on the field next week.

    Huddle Up: Britt likely will be one of the starting receivers for the Browns in 2017 and is coming off a solid 2016 season. The team's quarterback situation hurts Britt's fantasy value, but he could still be considered a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver for fantasy owners.

  • Ameer Abdullah - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 5/24/17 2:03pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (foot) accelerated through openings and changed direction without breaking stride during organized team activities Wednesday, May 24.

    Huddle Up: Abdullah appears to be recovered from his foot injury and should be part of a committee at running back in 2017. He probably will receive most of the carries in the offense but would see limited targets in the passing game. Owners in most leagues probably should consider Abdullah as a No. 3 running back.

  • Brandon McManus - PK - Denver Broncos
    Posted 5/24/17 1:25pm ET

    Denver Broncos restricted free-agent PK Brandon McManus has not signed his tender offer at this point because he is hoping to receive a long-term contract this offseason. He has been participating in offseason workouts.

    Huddle Up: McManus made 85.3 percent of the field goals this past season, which ranked 14th in the NFL. He plays for a solid offensive team but may only be a bye week option for owners in 2017.
