Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Corey Coleman - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 6/14/18 12:35pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman is entering a make-or-break season and has been working hard during offseason workouts, according to offensive coordinator Todd Haley. Coleman has been lined up as an outside receiver when the team is in three-receiver sets.

    Huddle Up: Coleman has dealt with injuries during the first two years of his career, so he will need to stay healthy to be productive in the passing game. He likely will compete with Antonio Callaway for the No. 3 receiver job during training camp but probably will not be a great fantasy option no matter where he is on the depth chart.

  • Baker Mayfield - QB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 6/14/18 12:13pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield is making good progress but has a long way to go before he is ready to compete with QB Tyrod Taylor for the starting quarterback job, according to offensive coordinator Todd Haley.

    Huddle Up: It appears that Mayfield will begin his rookie season as the No. 2 quarterback but could start at some point in 2018. He should be avoided in standard leagues but will be a solid choice in keeper leagues.

  • Ronald Jones - RB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 6/14/18 10:56am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones signed his four-year rookie deal Thursday, June 14. Financial terms were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Jones provides the Buccaneers with an immediate threat out of the backfield, particularly in the passing game. He'll lose a decent amount of touches to Peyton Barber and Charles Sims, but Jones has RB3 appeal at worst with added value in PPR leagues.

  • Kareem Hunt - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 6/14/18 10:48am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (hamstring) will be fine for the start of training camp, according to head coach Andy Reid. He has missed a large portion of the offseason program with a hamstring issue.

    Huddle Up: The Chiefs will likely take a cautious approach with their starting running back in training camp and the preseason. There's no reason to risk aggravation with such a valuable player. Assuming he stays healthy, Hunt is a late-first to early-second round draft consideration.

  • Josh McCown - QB - New York Jets
    Posted 6/14/18 10:35am ET

    New York Jets QB Josh McCown will begin training camp as the starting quarterback, according to head coach Todd Bowles. The starter for Week 1, however, is up in the air.

    Huddle Up: The Jets will have a legitimate competition between McCown, Sam Darnold and Teddy Bridgewater. McCown has the experience and past success to give him the edge, but Darnold and Bridgewater are young and talented. Whoever starts in New York will only be a bye-week replacement or spot start at best.

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 6/14/18 10:16am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and WR Sammy Watkins already appear to have a good rapport. Their connection has been a 'consistent sight' throughout the offseason program. WR Chris Conley said Watkins has been picking up the offense quickly and CB Steve Nelson added that Watkins has been putting in more time to work out.

    Huddle Up: Drafting Watkins to your fantasy squad is a tempting but difficult affair. He did score a career-high eight times last season, but only caught 39 passes for 593 yards. The upside is apparent and Watkins has the ability to achieve WR2 numbers, but it would behoove fantasy gamers to select him as a WR3.

  • Terrance Williams - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 6/14/18 10:04am ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Terrance Williams (foot) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, according to head coach Jason Garrett.

    Huddle Up: Williams has a good opportunity to be fantasy relevant in a relatively weak wide receiver corps, although one could argue he's the fourth best receiver on his team from a fantasy perspective. Allen Hurns, Michael Gallup and Cole Beasley will see their fair share of targets, making Williams a late-round dart throw.

  • Zay Jones - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 6/14/18 9:32am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones (shoulder, knee) could be healthy enough for training camp as head coach Sean McDermott said he has 'no reason not to believe' Jones won't be ready.

    Huddle Up: Double negatives aside, Buffalo's quarterback situation is far from trustworthy and their receiving corps is one of the worst in the NFL. LeSean McCoy is the only Bill worth starting on a week-to-week basis.

  • John Brown - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 6/14/18 8:45am ET

    Baltimore Ravens WR John Brown (knee) returned to practice Thursday, June 14.

    Huddle Up: Brown could have some luster in the slot as a WR5 in fantasy.
