Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Odell Beckham - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 9/22/17 1:24pm ET

    New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 22, but is not on the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Beckham is still dealing with the injury but will be on the field against the Philadelphia Eagles this week. He was held to only 36 yards in Week 2 but should see more targets against a depleted Eagles secondary. Owners should consider Beckham at least a No. 2 fantasy receiver this week.

  • Matt Forte - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 9/22/17 1:17pm ET

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) was removed from the injury report after fully practicing Friday, Sept. 22.

    Huddle Up: Forte saw an uptick in touches last week but remains part of what will be a weekly headache as a trident backfield -- one that figures to struggle more often than not, mind you. Avoid him in all situations where a clearer path to stable point production is available.

  • Torrey Smith - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/22/17 1:14pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR Torrey Smith (illness) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 22, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Smith could be a game-time decision, so owners will need to check the inactive list for his status for the game. He will be facing a solid New York Giants defense this week and could be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

  • Jordan Howard - RB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/22/17 1:07pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Howard was limited to seven rushing yards in Week 2 and will continue to share work with Tarik Cohen at running back. He will be facing a solid Pittsburgh Steelers defense and could be benched if owners have better options available.

  • Zach Miller - TE - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/22/17 12:59pm ET

    Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller (non-injury) fully participated in practice and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Miller has been targeted 15 times in the first two games and should continue to be a solid option in the passing game for the Bears. Miller should be owned in most fantasy leagues but can be left on the bench this week.

  • Kendall Wright - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/22/17 12:57pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Kendall Wright (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Wright has become the team's No. 1 receiver and is coming off a solid Week 2 performance when he caught seven passes for 69 yards. He will be facing a good Pittsburgh Steelers defense this week and could be benched if owners have better options to use.

  • Allen Hurns - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/22/17 12:44pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Hurns moved up the depth chart when Allen Robinson suffered his injury and posted 82 yards and one touchdown in Week 2. He will be facing a tough Baltimore Ravens defense this week but could be a possible flex option in deeper leagues.

  • DeMarco Murray - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/22/17 12:38pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry is expected to get a 'significant workload' in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks, regardless of whether DeMarco Murray plays or not, according to ESPN's Cameron Wolfe. Murray returned to practice as a limited participant Friday, Sept. 22, running routes and catching passes during individual drills. While Murray showed some instances of acceleration as a runner and receiver during the practice, it was far from what he would be expected to do in game action, according to Wolfe.

    Huddle Up: The Titans are handling this situation correctly, as there is no reason to push Murray through a hamstring injury, although having a talent like Henry on the roster makes it an easier decision. Henry is quite the luxury to fall back on when the reigning AFC rushing champion is not 100 percent and should be plugged into lineups as a RB2 despite the tough matchup.

  • Blake Bortles - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/22/17 12:31pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Bortles is still not posting great numbers over the first two games of the season and lost his No. 1 receiver to a major injury. Owners in all leagues should avoid Bortles most weeks.

  • Jesse James - TE - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 9/22/17 12:25pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 22, and is not in the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: James likely will receive a few targets against the Chicago Bears this week and will be a weapon if the team is close to the end zone. Owners probably can find more consistent options to use in their lineups and can keep James on the bench.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 9/22/17 12:18pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 22, and is not in the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Roethlisberger has struggled on the road over the last few seasons but has a chance to play better since all of his pass catchers will be available. He will be facing a Chicago Bears defense that has allowed 502 passing yards in the first two games. Owners in deeper leagues can consider Roethlisberger as a low-end No. 1 quarterback.

  • DeVante Parker - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/22/17 12:12pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 22, but is listed as questionable for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Parker appears to be on track to play in Week 3 and will have a solid role in the passing game. He will have a favorable matchup against the New York Jets this week and can be a No. 2 fantasy receiver for owners.

  • Jarvis Landry - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/22/17 12:08pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 22, but is listed as questionable for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Landry was able to play with the injury last week and should be active again in Week 3. He was targeted often in Week 2 and should be used as a possession receiver again against the New York Jets. He should be considered a No. 3 receiver in point-per-reception leagues and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in standard leagues.

  • Jay Ajayi - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/22/17 12:07pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 22, but is listed as questionable for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Ajayi may not be fully healthy but likely will be in uniform against the New York Jets. He is coming off a terrific Week 2 performance and should receive a lot of carries this week. He can be considered a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.

  • Danny Amendola - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/22/17 10:59am ET

    New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee, concussion) proclaimed himself 'good to go' for Week 3 versus the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: While an in-game injury is always a risk for someone like Amendola, the primary slot option in the New England offense is always a good bet for a huge PPR day. Even though the Patriots figure to limit his snaps, he should remain a solid WR3 option in most leagues.

  • Jordan Reed - TE - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/22/17 10:22am ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (chest, toe, shoulder) participated in practice for the second straight day Friday, Sept. 22.

    Huddle Up: Reed has more injuries through two weeks than he usually does, but two straight days of practice after sitting out Wednesday is a good sign for his Week 3 availability. While the Redskins' Sunday night game on Week 3 doesn't help owners worried about a surprise inactive, the matchup against the Oakland Raiders is too good to not take the chance. Owners they want to add Vernon Davis just in case to protect themselves.

  • DeMarco Murray - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/22/17 10:05am ET

    Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) was able to practice Friday, Sept. 22, after not participating the previous two days. He will be listed as questionable on the Week 3 injury report, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.

    Huddle Up: For the most part, Murray has not looked himself this season after leading the AFC in rushing last year. Owners who have some depth at running back should consider sitting Murray until he is able to produce something of note. That is unlikely to come this week against the Seattle Seahawks. At least for this week, Derrick Henry figures to lead the backfield in touches and figures to be the superior player.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/22/17 9:39am ET

    Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (ankle) was able to practice Friday, Sept. 22, but will be a game-time decision for Week 3 versus the Tennessee Titans, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

    Huddle Up: The Seahawks' offense has been mostly dysfunctional through two games, and the combination of Russell Wilson leading him into big hits and Graham not being able to come up with a few of the good throws that have come his way have led to a frustrating start (four catches for nine yards). For at least this week, owners should consider other options.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/22/17 9:27am ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back, knee) has been ruled out for Week 3 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: It's an expected outcome after missing practice all week, but that doesn't make it any less frustrating for his fantasy owners. Already one of the league's most injury-prone players, Eifert produced only four catches for 46 scoreless yards in his first two games. Owners should not hesitate moving on from him if they need the room on their roster or, at the very least, add a player like Benjamin Watson or Zach Miller to help them through Eifert's absence. Cincinnati will use C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Kroft to replace him.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/22/17 8:41am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back, knee) is out of practice Friday, Sept. 22, and unlikely to play in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Tyler Kroft figures to take over, but the entire offense has been a mess this season. Look elsewhere for a tight end in fantasy.
