Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 5/20/19 6:41pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones was not present for the start of organized team activities Monday, May 20.

    Huddle Up: Jones is talking with the team about a contract extension and may not participate until the mandatory minicamp. Jones continues to be one of the top receivers in the NFL and should be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Case Keenum - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 5/20/19 5:36pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Case Keenum received the first snap during team drills Monday, May 20.

    Huddle Up: Keenum will compete with Dwayne Haskins and Colt McCoy for the starting quarterback job during training camp. Fantasy players probably should avoid the Redskins quarterback situation in drafts, but Haskins likely will have some value in keeper leagues.

  • Amari Cooper - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 5/20/19 4:37pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper is at a stalemate in contract extension talks with the Cowboys, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Cooper is entering the final year of his contract, so the team is looking to sign him to a long-term extension this offseason. He played well after joining the Cowboys and should receive plenty of targets this upcoming season. He can be a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Kyle Rudolph - TE - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 5/20/19 3:10pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph said he plans to participate in practice Tuesday, May 21, even though his future with the team is uncertain.

    Huddle Up: Rudolph has been part of trade rumors this offseason, so it is not known which team he will play for in 2019. He can be considered a No. 2 fantasy tight end no matter where he plays.

  • A.J. Green - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 5/20/19 11:46am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) will not participate during organized team activities, but there is a chance he will take part in minicamp, according to ESPN's Katherine Terrell, who adds Green 'definitely' will be ready for training camp.

    Huddle Up: Green is reportedly running routes and feeling good but doesn't want to rush anything, so there's apparently no cause for concern here. The 30-year-old is a bit of a risk after having two of his last three seasons cut short of injury, but he's always a good bet for WR1 production when he's healthy. As such, his current ADP in the middle of the third round in PPR leagues makes him a bit of a value pick at the moment.

  • Derrius Guice - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 5/20/19 11:30am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) has reportedly 'made good progress' and is expected to take part fully in training camp, according to comments made by head coach Jay Gruden on Monday, May 20. 'Derrius is coming along very well. We're just trying to make sure that leg - his quad and everything - is full strength before we let him go. That will probably be another thing we'll wait for training camp as well,' Gruden said.

    Huddle Up: Guice returns to a much more crowded backfield than the one he left after tearing his ACL last August, as the team has since added Adrian Peterson and Bryce Love to the mix to go along with Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson. The 2018 second-rounder will likely share early-down reps with Peterson if he holds up and could eventually emerge as the starter later in the season if he finds his pre-injury form. Owners should consider him a late-round lottery ticket in fantasy drafts.

  • John Ross - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 5/19/19 5:21pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (tightness) missed voluntary minicamp with general tightness.

    Huddle Up: While it doesn't sound serious, his injury history isn't exactly encouraging. Ross has the speed to produce big plays, but he's yet to show he can produce with any sort of consistency. At this point, you can probably leave him on the waiver wire.

  • Darrell Henderson - RB - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 5/19/19 11:45am ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson, a third-round rookie out of Memphis, recently told the Los Angeles Times that he's feeling right at home with his new team. 'If you go back and watch my college film and you watch the Rams film, it's the same,' Henderson told the Los Angeles Times this week. 'I thought that was the best system I could get in. So everything worked out great. When I was talking to them, everything was clicking and we developed a relationship. The coaches told me they knew they were going to get me so it was the perfect fit.'

    Huddle Up: Henderson indeed appears to have found the ideal pro fit, but as long as Todd Gurley is atop the depth chart -- question marks and all -- Henderson should be valued as no more than a RB4/5 with upside in drafts.

  • Noah Fant - TE - Denver Broncos
    Posted 5/19/19 11:29am ET

    Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant is a better receiver than blocker but will likely split time during his first season with veteran Jeff Heuerman in the opinion of a veteran beat reporter.

    Huddle Up: Even as a rookie, Fant figures to finish as the Broncos' most productive fantasy tight end, but the time split is problematic, making the first-round pick no more than a low-end TE2.

  • Kirk Cousins - QB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 5/19/19 10:35am ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins is entering his second season with the team and along with that come higher expectations. 'I think a year under his belt here in Minnesota and his familiarity with everything is going to bode well,' Vikings co-owner Mark Wilf said in the Minneapolis Star Tribune on Sunday, May 19. 'He's doing great. We expect a lot out of him as well as our whole team.'

    Huddle Up: After three consecutive top-10 fantasy QB finishes in Washington, Cousins finished 13th in his debut season in the Twin Cities, but a some of that was due to his one rushing TD after posting at least four over the previous three seasons. Draft him as a rock-solid QB2.

  • Noah Fant - TE - Denver Broncos
    Posted 5/18/19 6:44pm ET

    Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant could 'emerge as a difference maker in Year 1' for the offense, in the opinion of Bucky Brooks of NFL.com.

    Huddle Up: Denver has been searching for a tight end for a while, and Fant has the speed and athleticism to create matchup problems. He also a quarterback in Joe Flacco who loves throwing to his tight ends. It could be a recipe for fantasy success, and Fant has a chance to reach TE1 territory sooner rather than later.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 5/18/19 6:36pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald could reach 100 catches because of all the 'quick-rhythm throws' in head coach Kliff Kingsbury's offense, in the opinion of Bucky Brooks of NFL.com.

    Huddle Up: Fitzgerald is coming off a down year, but with Kyler Murray under center and a pass-happy offense being installed, he could see an uptick in his numbers. While 100 catches may be a little optimistic, Fitzgerald is Arizona's most dependable receiver. It wouldn't be a shock to see him finish as a solid WR3.

  • Carson Wentz - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 5/18/19 4:50pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz has started contract extension talks with the Eagles, but the two sides are not close to an agreement at this point.

    Huddle Up: Wentz is under contract for a few more years but could receive a contract extension before the start of the 2019 season. Wentz has played well when he is healthy, but he has deal with injuries over the last few seasons. He can still be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues this upcoming season.
