Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Derrick Henry - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/16/18 7:06pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry rushed 18 times for 56 yards in the Week 2 game against the Houston Texans .

    Huddle Up: Henry expressed his displeasure with his workload in Week 1, and he edged Dion Lewis 18-15 in total touches this week. At this rate he is barely a low-end RB2 in most fantasy leagues. Treat him more as a RB3 or flex fantasy option in Week 3 against the tough Jacksonville defense on the road.

  • Blaine Gabbert - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/16/18 7:04pm ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Blaine Gabbert made the start in Week 2 against the Houston Texans, completing 13-of-20 passes for 117 yards and one touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Gabbert was making the start with Marcus Mariota (elbow) unavailable after suffering an elbow injury in Week 1. While the Titans scratched out a win, Gabbert's presence under center splashed cold water over everyone's fantasy value in the passing offense.

  • Bruce Ellington - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 9/16/18 7:00pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Bruce Ellington posted three grabs and 45 yards in Week 2 against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Ellington was up as the No. 2 receiver in Week 1, but Will Fuller (hamstring) made his debut in Week 2 and Ellington's targets were limited. He is nothing more than a WR5 in leagues of 12 or more teams when Fuller and DeAndre Hopkins are healthy. The Texans host the Giants in Week 3.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 9/16/18 6:58pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins posted six receptions for 110 yards and a touchdown on a game-high 11 targets in Week 2 against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins and DeShaun Watson continue to be on the same page, and there was no decrease in production for Nuke with Will Fuller back from a hamstring injury. In fact, another threat like Fuller might have opened things up more for Hopkins, taking away double teams. He remains an obvious fantasy stud heading into Week 3 against the Giants.

  • Will Fuller - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 9/16/18 6:48pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller managed eight receptions for 113 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Tennessee Titans on nine targets.

    Huddle Up: Fuller was making his season debut after missing the opener in New England due to a hamstring injury. He showed no ill effects of that ailment and looked like he did jelling with DeShaun Watson for big production in the middle of last season before injuries struck. Fuller is a solid WR3 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 3 against the New York Giants.

  • Alfred Blue - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 9/16/18 6:41pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue rushed seven times for 36 yards in Week 2 against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Blue averaged 5.1 yards per attempt to 4.9 yards per rush for starter Lamar Miller, so he did fine when called up. He isn't going to chip into Miller's playing time anytime soon, so he remains a fringe fantasy option in deeper leagues at the moment. The Texans host the Giants in Week 3.

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 9/16/18 6:38pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed 14 times for 68 yards in Week 2 against the Tennessee Titans and he added two receptions for just two yards.

    Huddle Up: Miller isn't being pushed by anyone, so he'll be the bellcow for Houston. However, he is still more of a low-end RB2 or must-start RB3 heading into Week 3 against the New York Giants.

  • Deshaun Watson - QB - Houston Texans
    Posted 9/16/18 6:35pm ET

    Houston Texans QB DeShaun Watson completed 22-of-32 passes for 310 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Week 2 game against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Watson put up nice yardage and he had a pair of 100-yard receivers in Will Fuller and DeAndre Hopkins, while hitting each for a touchdown. He was expected to be a fantasy beast, but he started a bit slow in Week 1. This is what you can expect, and he remains a solid low-end QB1 heading into Week 3 against the New York Giants.

  • Randall Cobb - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/16/18 6:03pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb posted four grabs for 30 yards on six targets in Week 2 against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Cobb and Geronimo Allison are jockeying for position and targets behind Davante Adams and Jimmy Graham in the receptions pecking order. Right now, Cobb should only be viewed as a WR5 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 3 against the Washington Redskins.

  • Geronimo Allison - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/16/18 5:47pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison posted six receptions for 64 yards on six targets in the Week 2 tie against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Allison did a good job in this one, but he was still the tertiary receiving option fighting for targets with Randall Cobb. Don't overvalue him based on this decent stat line. He remains more of a WR5 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 3.

  • Davante Adams - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/16/18 5:44pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams posted a team-high eight receptions with 64 yards and a touchdown while also leading the team with 12 targets in Week 2 against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Adams was a bit of a question mark heading into play due to a shoulder injury, but he didn't show any ill effects in this one. He has 13 grabs, 20 targets, 152 yards and two touchdowns through two games, making him a legit WR1 in most fantasy formats heading into Week 3 against the Washington Redskins.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/16/18 5:36pm ET

    Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham posted six receptions for 95 yards on eight targets in Week 2 against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Graham bounced back nicely after laying an egg in his opening game win against the Bears. This is why you need to have patience, as he is a TE1 and he'll jell really nicely with Aaron Rodgers this season. Look for even bigger and better things in Week 3 against the Redskins, a team which allowed a touchdown to TE Eric Ebron in Week 2.

  • Ty Montgomery - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/16/18 5:32pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR/RB Ty Montgomery rushed five times for 31 yards in Week 2 against the Minnesota Vikings and he added one grab for nine yards on two targets.

    Huddle Up: Montgomery had six total touches to 19 for Jamaal Williams, so that's not good for Montgomery's short-term fantasy appeal. Right now he should be treated as an RB4 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. The Packers travel to meet the Redskins in Week 3.

  • Jamaal Williams - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/16/18 5:28pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams rushed 16 times for 59 yards in Week 2 against the Minnesota Vikings and he added three catches for 12 yards on four targets.

    Huddle Up: Williams dominated the backfield touches in this one, posting 19 total touches to just six for Ty Montgomery. If head coach Mike McCarthy continues to divvy up the touches in this manner it would be huge for Williams' fantasy appeal, but he'll need more yards per carry. Keep treating him as a RB3 or flex fantasy option in Week 3 against the Washington Redskins.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/16/18 5:12pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 30-of-42 passes for 281 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 2 against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: The good news is that Rodgers was able to play and didn't show any ill effects of the knee injury he suffered in the Week 1 opener against the Bears. Rodgers and the Packers take it on the road to face the Redskins in Week 3.

  • Laquon Treadwell - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/16/18 5:05pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell posted two catches for 23 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Treadwell was targeted six times, so he could be someone in the mix as a WR5 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. If something happens to Stefon Diggs or Adam Thielen, he might have even more appeal. The Vikings host the Bills in Week 3.

  • Kyle Rudolph - TE - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/16/18 5:02pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph posted seven receptions for 72 yards on eight targets in Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Rudolph has Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs to contend with for targets, but he still sees the eye of his quarterback fairly frequently. While he didn't score in this one, Rudolph is a big threat in the red zone, too. He is a solid low-end TE1 in most leagues heading into Week 3 against the Bills.

  • Stefon Diggs - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/16/18 4:57pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs posted nine receptions for 128 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 2 tie in Green Bay. He also added an important game-tying two-point conversion reception.

    Huddle Up: Diggs seems to be ecstatic to have Kirk Cousins as his quarterback, as he has racked up 12 catches on 19 targets while piling up 171 yards and three scores in the first two games. The good times should continue to roll in Week 3 against the beleaguered Bills in a home game.

  • Adam Thielen - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/16/18 4:55pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen posted 12 receptions for 131 yards and a touchdown on 13 targets in Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Thielen has jelled very nicely with Kirk Cousins, posting back-to-back 100-yard games to start the season while being targeted 25 times with 18 grabs already. Needless to say, he has emerged as a bona fide WR1 in PPR formats, and a solid WR2 in most other leagues. The Vikings host the skidding Bills in Week 3.

  • Latavius Murray - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/16/18 4:52pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed four times for 19 yards in Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Murray didn't have a very productive day, but he could be in line for a much bigger role after Dalvin Cook left in overtime with a hamstring injury. If Cook is forced to miss time then Murray could re-emerge as a solid RB3 or flex play in Week 3.
