Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Bruce Ellington - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 11/15/17 3:17pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Bruce Ellington (ribs) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Ellington is expected to receive a bigger role in the passing game with Will Fuller unlikely to play. He has been targeted 17 times over the last two weeks but has only seven catches and 63 yards during that span. Desperate owners in deeper leagues could consider Ellington, but owners in most leagues can find better options for their lineups.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 11/15/17 3:17pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (rest) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 15, and he is off the injury report heading into Week 11 against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Big Ben will be facing a Tennessee pass defense ranking 19th in the NFL, allowing 236.4 yards per game with 17 touchdowns allowed through the air across nine games.

  • Vance McDonald - TE - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 11/15/17 3:15pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 15, and he is listed as questionable for Week 11 against the Tennessee Titans on Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: McDonald is the top tight end option in Pittsburgh and he could be worth a look as a low-end TE1 against a Titans pass defense ranking 19th in the NFL.

  • LeSean McCoy - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 11/15/17 3:14pm ET

    Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (rest) was rested during practice on Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: It's rather customary for the veteran to take off from mid-week practices. He'll be just fine for Week 11 against the Chargers, and he'll be needed to run hard with Nathan Peterman making his first NFL start under center.

  • Jordan Matthews - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 11/15/17 3:13pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Matthews has been a huge disappointment in Buffalo so far, and his fantasy outlook is rather murky with Nathan Peterman taking over under center for the benched Tyrod Taylor.

  • Charles Clay - TE - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 11/15/17 3:12pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Clay was able to return from a long-term knee injury in Week 10, but he wasn't terribly busy as he eased back in. His fantasy outlook is rather murky with Nathan Peterman taking over under center in Buffalo.

  • Tom Savage - QB - Houston Texans
    Posted 11/15/17 3:11pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Savage has thrown for 440 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions the last two weeks and will continue to be the starting quarterback for the foreseeable future. He will be facing a solid Arizona Cardinals defense and should be avoided in all leagues.

  • Brandon LaFell - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 11/15/17 2:56pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: LaFell has a tough enough weekend ahead of him as it is versus the Denver Broncos. Adding a knee that's not at full health makes matters worse. His status will need to be monitored for the next few days, but he can't be viewed as more than a flex at this point.

  • Brock Osweiler - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 11/15/17 2:45pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Denver's losing streak has not ceased with the change to Osweiler at quarterback. He has not proven to be a quality fantasy quarterback either. That goes for his whole career, not just his starts this season. He should not be started this week.

  • John Brown - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 11/15/17 2:43pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (back) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Brown hasn't found the end zone in three games dating back to Week 6 against the Buccaneers. He remains a WR4 or WR5 in most fantasy leagues of 14 or more teams, and he is even less attractive from a fantasy perspective with Blaine Gabbert under center.

  • Demaryius Thomas - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 11/15/17 2:41pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: You're not going to bench Thomas, but the Cincinnati Bengals have been tough against wide receivers this year. Somewhat surprisingly, Thomas has scored in two straight games with Brock Osweiler starting, so keep viewing him as a solid WR2.

  • Terrance West - RB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 11/15/17 2:19pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Terrance West (calf) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Both West and Danny Woodhead look to be back in Baltimore's backfield this week. Don't expect them to see a full plate, though, as both backs are coming off extended absences. Take a wait-and-see approach with West in Week 11. That's assuming he's even active.

  • Ezekiel Elliott - RB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 11/15/17 2:11pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has withdrawn his appeal for his six-game suspension, according to a source. Elliott will serve the suspension and return to the Cowboys against the Seattle Seahawks Dec. 24.

    Huddle Up: Elliott didn't have much of a chance of winning his appeal anyway, and the appeal process may have lasted longer than the rest of the regular season anyway. Alfred Morris will see the majority of carries out of the backfield, but Rod Smith is a PPR sleeper after catching four passes last week while splitting time with Morris.

  • Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 11/15/17 2:05pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) was limited in practice on Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Fournette was able to play in Week 10, but he was bottled up for the most part. He will be facing the NFL's No. 4 ranked rushing defense in Week 11, as the Browns allow just 86.4 yards per game. Still, Fournette is a must-start fantasy option whenever he is active.

  • Blake Bortles - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 11/15/17 2:04pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Bortles has been on the injury report for most of the season with a right wrist issue, but he has yet to miss any game time.

  • Marqise Lee - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 11/15/17 2:04pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Lee might be a question mark for Week 11, or the team could just be preserving him since Allen Hurns has already been ruled out. With Hurns out, Lee could be a legitimate WR3 or flex option in some fantasy formats, especially working against the lowly Browns.

  • DeShone Kizer - QB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 11/15/17 2:01pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer (ribs) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Kizer might be fine for Sunday, but he'll be facing the No. 1 pass defense in the NFL when the Jaguars visit. Jacksonville allowed 165.1 yards per game with just six touchdowns allowed through nine games. Kizer is even a borderline fantasy play as a low-end QB2 in two-quarterback formats.

  • Duke Johnson - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 11/15/17 2:01pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson (shoulder) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Johnson appears to be good to go for Week 11, and he'll face a Jacksonville rush defense which ranks 25th in the NFL. It might be tough sledding catching the ball out of the backfield, however, as the Jags are strong against the pass.

  • Isaiah Crowell - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 11/15/17 2:00pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell (shoulder) took part in a limited practice session on Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Crowell had one of his best performances of the season in Detroit and looks to build on that in Week 11 against Jacksonville. The Jags rank 25th in the NFL in rush defense, allowing 120.7 yards per game with six touchdowns, so Crowell could be a solid RB2 in most fantasy formats this week.

  • Kenny Britt - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 11/15/17 2:00pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Kenny Britt (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Britt scored a touchdown last week, but he has mostly been a disappointment this season. He remains useful only to those in the very deepest of leagues.
