Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Darren Sproles - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/13/19 4:53pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles finished with three runs for just four yards in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game while adding three grabs for 21 yards on four targets.

    Huddle Up: Sproles continues to defy Father Time, as there aren't many running backs able to do what he can at 35 years old. He is likely to be back in 2019, in Philadelphia or elsewhere, and he remains a decent low-end PPR fantasy option as long as he is around.

  • Alshon Jeffery - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/13/19 4:50pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery registered five grabs for 63 yards on seven targets in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the New Orleans Saints, but his costly drop inside of two minutes led to an interception by CB Marshon Lattimore to seal the loss.

    Huddle Up: Jeffery managed 65 receptions for 843 yards and six scores during the regular season, adjusting to two different quarterbacks in the process. He'll once again be a solid WR2 or WR3 heading into 2019, although he seemed to perform better working with Nick Foles than Carson Wentz. The latter is expected to take back over as the starter in 2019.

  • Wendell Smallwood - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/13/19 4:48pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood rushed 10 times for 33 yards while adding a catch for six yards in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Jan. 13.

    Huddle Up: Smallwood had 11 touches to lead the Philly backfield, while Darren Sproles had six total touches. While he led the way in this one, Smallwood's fantasy outlook heading into 2019 is rather murky with Corey Clement likely back, and Darren Sproles perhaps in the picture again, too.

  • Nick Foles - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/13/19 4:46pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles completed 18-of-30 passes for 201 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Jan. 13. He also had a 1-yard rushing score.

    Huddle Up: Foles led the Eagles to a Super Bowl championship in 2018, and he rallied the team and got them into the playoffs once Carson Wentz went down to injury again. He is about to be a wealthy man in 2019 if he doesn't miraculously end up in Philly again. If he lands a starting gig somewhere, he'll have some fantasy staying power.

  • Cordarrelle Patterson - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/13/19 3:01pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Cordarrelle Patterson rushed for three yards on one carry against the Los Angeles Chargers in the Divisional Round playoff game. He was targeted once in the passing game but finished with zero receptions.

    Huddle Up: Patterson has been involved in the running and passing game this season and has posted at least 50 total yards in three of the last five games. He could be a flex option in some playoff fantasy leagues since there are not a lot of options available but is not a must-start option.

  • Chris Hogan - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/13/19 2:58pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan caught three passes for 13 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers in the Divisional Round playoff game.

    Huddle Up: Hogan was not a big factor during the second half of the regular season but has been targeted 16 times over the last two games. He could be a possible flex option in some fantasy leagues next week.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/13/19 2:54pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski caught one pass for 25 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers in the Divisional Round playoff game.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski has had a disappointing season and has been held to three receptions or less in eight of the last nine games. He can still be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in playoff fantasy leagues, but owners should not expect a big performance.

  • Phillip Dorsett - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/13/19 2:49pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett caught four passes for 41 yards and one touchdown against the Los Angeles Chargers in the Divisional Round playoff game.

    Huddle Up: Dorsett has caught a touchdown in back-to-back games and has been targeted 10 times in the two games. He could be a flex option in some leagues next week but is not a must-start option.

  • James White - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/13/19 2:42pm ET

    New England Patriots RB James White caught 15 passes for 97 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers in the Divisional Round playoff game.

    Huddle Up: White has been one of the top running backs in point-per-reception leagues this season and will continue to be a main option in the passing game for the Patriots. He should be a No. 2 running back or flex option in all leagues next week.

  • Julian Edelman - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/13/19 2:34pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman caught nine passes for 151 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers in the Divisional Round playoff game.

    Huddle Up: Edelman has been the top option for the Patriots for several years and will continue to receive plenty of targets in the passing game. He is a must-start option in all playoff fantasy leagues.

  • Rex Burkhead - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/13/19 2:29pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead rushed for 12 yards and one touchdown on four carries against the Los Angeles Chargers in the Divisional Round playoff game. He also caught one pass for seven yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Burkhead is third on the depth chart and likely will only receive a handful of touches during games. He probably should be avoided in fantasy leagues next week.

  • Sony Michel - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/13/19 2:24pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Sony Michel rushed for 129 yards and three touchdowns on 24 carries against the Los Angeles Chargers in the Divisional Round playoff game.

    Huddle Up: Michel has rushed for at least 100 yards in two of the last three games and has four touchdowns during that span. He will continue to be the main option in the running game and should be a starting option in all leagues next week.

  • Tom Brady - QB - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/13/19 2:23pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady went 34-for-44 for 343 yards and one touchdown against the Los Angeles Chargers in the Divisional Round playoff game.

    Huddle Up: Brady had some troubles during the second half of the season but has played well in the last two games. He should be part of a high-scoring game next week and can be a No. 1 option in playoff fantasy leagues.

  • Austin Ekeler - RB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 1/13/19 2:17pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler didn't have any carries while posting three grabs for 19 yards on five targets in the AFC Divisional Round playoff game against the New England Patriots on Sunday, Jan. 13.

    Huddle Up: Ekeler was a little banged up coming in, and the Chargers got away from the run early due to a lopsided score on the board. It wasn't a good combination for Ekeler's fantasy owners in postseason leagues. He posted 554 yards and three touchdowns in 2018, and will be a good handcuff for fantasy owners of Melvin Gordon in 2019, as well as a decent PPR option.

  • Antonio Gates - TE - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 1/13/19 2:12pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates registered five receptions for 41 yards with a touchdown on eight targets in the AFC Divisional Round playoff game loss Sunday, Jan. 13.

    Huddle Up: Gates might have been playing in his final game in the NFL, and if so he ended on a positive note with a touchdown. If the future Hall of Famer returns for the 2019 season he isn't someone to draft for fantasy leaguers.

  • Mike Williams - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 1/13/19 1:55pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams finished with five grabs for 68 yards on 11 targets in the AFC Divisional Round playoff game against the New England Patriots on Sunday, Jan. 13.

    Huddle Up: Williams nearly had a touchdown for fantasy owners in postseason leagues, but instant review showed he came up just short of the goal line. He ended the regular season with 664 yards and 10 touchdowns on 43 receptions in his first 16-game season in two NFL campaigns, and he could be a nice fantasy sleeper heading into 2019 if he takes another step forward.

  • Keenan Allen - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 1/13/19 1:52pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen registered two receptions for 75 yards and a touchdown in the AFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the New England Patriots on Sunday, Jan. 13. It was his third-career postseason touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Allen wrapped up the regular season with 97 grabs for 1,196 yards and six touchdowns in his second straight 16-game campaign. Hopefully his injury problems are in the rear-view mirror. He is a solid low-end WR1 or must-have WR2 heading into 2019, particularly in PPR fantasy formats.

  • Tyrell Williams - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 1/13/19 1:49pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Tyrell Williams registered five receptions for 94 yards on seven targets in the AFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the New England Patriots on Sunday, Jan. 13.

    Huddle Up: Williams had his biggest yardage total since going for 118 yards on Oct. 21 against Tennessee. He posted 41 grabs, 653 yards and five touchdowns during the regular season and could be a decent late-round fantasy addition in 2019, especially in deeper leagues.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 1/13/19 1:44pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon ran nine times for 15 yards and a touchdown in the AFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the New England Patriots and he added an 11-yard reception.

    Huddle Up: The Patriots shut down the run early, and the Bolts got away from it late with the game out of hand. Gordon will rebound nicely and be a top-flight fantasy back yet again in the 2019 season as long as he can stay healthy.

  • Philip Rivers - QB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 1/13/19 1:39pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed 25-of-51 passes for 331 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the AFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the New England Patriots on Sunday, Jan. 13.

    Huddle Up: Rivers finished the regular season with 4,308 passing yards, good for eighth in the NFL, and he had 32 touchdowns to finish sixth. It was also his sixth straight season with 4,000 or more passing yards, and the 10th time he reached the mark in his NFL career. He'll head into 2019 as a low-end QB1 yet again for fantasy owners.
