Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Alex Collins - RB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 11/16/17 10:21am ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Alex Collins will remain the featured back despite the returns of RBs Terrance West and Danny Woodhead.

    Huddle Up: Baltimore's backfield is becoming crowded quickly. Collins may continue to be the lead guy, but he will inevitably surrender touches to his cohorts. That being said, he's a viable RB or flex consideration in a favorable matchup even if those guys return.

  • Damien Williams - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 11/16/17 10:12am ET

    Miami Dolphins RBs Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams will continue to split touches, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen.

    Huddle Up: Drake has earned the lead role in Miami's backfield, but the Dolphins aren't giving it to him yet. Not only is Drake a bigger playmaker, Williams has only averaged 3.1 yards per carry in his career. The former is a solid RB2 play in a great matchup this week. The latter is more of a PPR flex.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 11/16/17 9:51am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) will be limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Jones is still productive, but his one touchdown has limited his appeal after being taken as a stud WR1. He remains a low-end WR1 against the Seattle Seahawks this week.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 11/16/17 9:19am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) won't practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Freeman is likely out this week, and Tevin Coleman has RB1 written all over him against the Seattle Seahawks.

  • Dez Bryant - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 11/16/17 8:59am ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) will practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Bryant has a poor matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles, who are in the top five at defending the position the last five weeks. He's a WR3 in fantasy this week.

  • DeMarco Murray - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 11/16/17 8:28am ET

    Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray will face the best defense against the running back position in fantasy over the last five weeks in the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Outside of last week's three touchdowns, Murray has struggled. He's averaging just 3.01 yards per carry over the last four games. During that stretch, the Steelers are yielding 9.8 fantasy points per game to running backs - as a whole. Murray is still an RB2 in fantasy, but if you're loaded at the position, it's not out of the question to consider someone else.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 11/16/17 8:19am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is the eighth player since 1950 to have 250 or more touches in the first nine games of a season.

    Huddle Up: You likely know the horror stories of running backs' usage rates and the long-term effects, but that's only a factor in dynasty formats. Bell only has five touchdowns this year, and that's what is keeping him from being the top back in fantasy. He has a tough matchup with the Tennessee Titans this week, but he's one of the best assets to have the rest of the way.

  • Ryan Succop - PK - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 11/15/17 7:50pm ET

    Tennessee Titans PK Ryan Succop missed a 48-year field goal in the team's Week 10 game Sunday, Nov. 12, against the Cincinnati Bengals, which snapped his NFL-record streak of 56 consecutive made field goals inside of 50 yards. The next closest streak of its kind was 46 by Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant from 2013-15.

    Huddle Up: Despite the rare miss, Succop remains one of the top kicker options out there in all of fantasy football. The Titans score a healthy amount of points, having accumulated the fourth most in the AFC, and they're also tied for the second-most field goal attempts in all of football entering Week 11. If you need a kicker and Succop is on the waiver wire for some reason, feel free to grab him.

  • Philip Rivers - QB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 11/15/17 7:30pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers became the eighth quarterback in NFL history with 4,000 career completions after his performance in Week 10 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. In the process, he also passed retired QB Warren Moon for eighth on the all-time list.

    Huddle Up: It's another notch on the belt of what has been a terrific career for the 14-year veteran, but unfortunately for his owners, this hasn't been the typical Rivers season. As it stands, the 35-year-old owns an 87.8 QB Rating, which is his lowest since 2007. Furthermore, he's averaging just over 250 passing yards per contest, his fewest in five years. Of course, with his consecutive games streak in danger due to injury, owners have to wait before deciding to deploy him in Week 11.

  • Matt Ryan - QB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 11/15/17 7:02pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan became the quickest quarterback in NFL history to reach 40,000 passing yards (151 games) with his performance in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys, breaking New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees' record by one game.

    Huddle Up: Ryan has had a fine season up to this point, but given the many career bests that he set a year ago, he's also left a little bit more to be desired from owners who invested an early draft pick on the Falcons' veteran signal-caller. For instance, Ryan's 263.6 yards per game is his lowest mark since 2011. Despite this, he's still worth plugging in the lineup every week and could churn out numbers closer to his norm throughout the rest of the second half of the year.

  • Carson Wentz - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 11/15/17 6:46pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz leads all quarterbacks in passing touchdowns this season through the first 10 weeks, having thrown for 23 scores. If he can maintain his pace and finish on top, he would become the first Eagles quarterback to lead the league in touchdowns since retired QB Roman Gabriel in 1973. Ironically, Gabriel finished that year with 23 touchdown passes.

    Huddle Up: The Eagles are coming off their bye week, so it's not like anyone has any games in hand on the current touchdown leader. It's been a remarkable second campaign for the former North Dakota State product, as Wentz owns an outstanding 104.1 QB Rating, easily besting his 79.3 mark from a year ago. Furthermore, he's thrown just five interceptions. Wentz is an unquestioned QB1 and should live up to that status in this week's date with the Cowboys.

  • Chris Hogan - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/15/17 6:20pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) is still in Massachusetts and is receiving treatment on his injured shoulder. The Patriots are practicing in Colorado this week.

    Huddle Up: It appears that Hogan will miss at least one more game because of his shoulder, so owners in all leagues should avoid him. Danny Amendola and Martellus Bennett could see more targets in Week 11, but neither player is a strong fantasy option.

  • Jared Goff - QB - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 11/15/17 6:05pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff has the second largest increase in passer rating from a quarterback's first year to his second, thus far owning a 101.5 QB Rating this season, which is 37.9 better than his 63.6 mark of a year ago. That difference has him only behind Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles, who oversaw a difference of 40.1 in his QB Rating from 2012-2013.

    Huddle Up: Goff's significant improvement from his disastrous rookie campaign has been one of the best stories of the season. It also has solidified him as a legitimate QB1, even when he has a tough matchup, which will be the case in Week 11. Despite a date on tap versus the Vikings, it's just too tough to bench him opposite any opponent, especially with how he's been rolling as of late. In his last two games, Goff has topped 300 yards in both contests while amassing seven total touchdowns compared to no interceptions.

  • Bruce Ellington - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 11/15/17 5:36pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Bruce Ellington 'needs to get the ball more,' according to head coach Bill O'Brien, who added that 'he's doing some really good things out there.'

    Huddle Up: Ellington has become more involved in the passing game since Deshaun Watson went down, as he's drawn eight targets in each of the last two games, turning that into seven catches for 63 yards and his second touchdown of the season. While those numbers don't exactly sound glamorous, it is encouraging that his head coach wants him more involved, which makes him a sleeper option to ponder in deeper formats.

  • Zay Jones - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 11/15/17 5:28pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones (knee) said he is optimistic about his availability for Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Jones should be in uniform in Week 11 unless he suffers a setback during the practice week. He has some chemistry with Nathan Peterman because of the preseason and they played on the same team during the Senior Bowl. Owners may want to see Jones play this week before considering him a fantasy option.

  • Martellus Bennett - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/15/17 5:06pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (hamstring, shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Bennett likely will continue to play despite his shoulder injury and could see a decent amount of targets against the Oakland Raiders. Owners in most leagues should consider Bennett a No. 2 fantasy tight end and can keep him on the bench this week.

  • Danny Amendola - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/15/17 4:52pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Amendola should be in uniform this week and may see more targets with Chris Hogan not expected to play. He has been held to under 40 yards in each of the last four games but can still be a valuable option in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 11/15/17 3:59pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman might be called upon to start in Week 11 against the Seattle Seahawks with RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) uncertain. Head coach Dan Quinn said Wednesday, Nov. 15, that the team is confident in Coleman's ability to shoulder the load.

    Huddle Up: Coleman, who hasn't lost a fumble in 30 games, might be the workhorse against the Seattle Seahawks. While it's not a particularly attractive fantasy matchup, he is a decent low-end RB2 or flex option if Freeman is inactive.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 11/15/17 3:42pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) took some snaps on the sidelines during practice Wednesday, Nov. 15, but did not throw any passes. He also simulated a throwing motion by whipping a towel during the workout. Rodgers is not allowed to practice for at least two more weeks and is not eligible to play again until Week 15 since he is on the Reserve/Injured list.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation because Rodgers could return to the lineup if the Packers have a chance to make the playoffs. Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL when he is heathy but would be a risky option in all leagues if he returns this season.

  • Paxton Lynch - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 11/15/17 3:40pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch worked as the No. 2 quarterback in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15, and he took passing plays with the starting offense with QB Brock Osweiler (shoulder) limited in practice.

    Huddle Up: Head coach Vance Joseph said Osweiler is expected to start in Week 11, but he hasn't decided on the backup between Lynch and Trevor Siemian. Lynch has long-term fantasy appeal, but no use in seasonal leagues.
