Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Courtland Sutton - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 9/15/19 11:43pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton caught four passes for 40 yards on Sunday, Sept. 15, against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Sutton went off for 120 yards receiving in Week 1, but a tough Bears secondary limited him to four receptions in the home opener. Still, Sutton is a solid player that should be owned in all formats and can be deployed in appealing matchups.

  • Emmanuel Sanders - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 9/15/19 11:37pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders tallied 11 receptions for 98 yards and a touchdown against the Chicago Bears in Week 2. Sanders also caught a pass for a two-point conversion.

    Huddle Up: Denver has two touchdowns this season. Sanders has both of them. He's a steady performer and someone that Joe Flacco obviously trusts -- his 13 targets were nearly double anyone else in Week 2. Keep Sanders in your lineup as a solid WR3.

  • Phillip Lindsay - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 9/15/19 11:34pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay gained 36 yards on 13 carries against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, Sept. 15. He also had four receptions for 30 yards.

    Huddle Up: Lindsay has taken a back seat to Royce Freeman in terms of production thus far, but he's still getting the touches. Look for that split to continue and consider penciling Lindsay in as your flex or third back.

  • Royce Freeman - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 9/15/19 11:26pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman carried 11 times for 54 yards against the Chicago Bears in Week 2. He also caught five passes for 48 yards.

    Huddle Up: Freeman finished with 16 touches for 102 yards to Phillip Lindsay's 17 touches for 66 yards. While Freeman has done more damage in the early going, there's no sign that the team will do anything other than split touches between the pair. That leaves Freeman as an RB3/Flex play.

  • Joe Flacco - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 9/15/19 11:20pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco completed 35 of 50 passes for 292 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT in the team's Week 2 loss to the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Flacco played it safe, completing primarily short passes and making just one mistake, but it was a big one, as he was intercepted at the one-yard line. If one of your QBs went down Sunday and you're looking for a decent backup you could do worse than Flacco.

  • Eddie Jackson - S - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/15/19 11:15pm ET

    Chicago Bears S Eddie Jackson registered 10 tackles (six solo) and two passes defensed in the team's Week 2 win over the Denver Broncos.

  • Ezekiel Elliott - RB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 9/15/19 11:11pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott ran 23 times for 111 yards and a touchdown and added two catches for nine yards in Week 2 versus the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Elliott is doing everything in his power to prove working out in Cabo is every bit as effective as training camp. One week after splitting carries with Tony Pollard, Elliott handled 68 percent of the team's carries. Although last year's workload (400-plus touches, including playoffs) is bound to catch up to him at some point, owners should feel good about his ability to deliver top-five production at his position just about every week.

  • Roquan Smith - LB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/15/19 11:10pm ET

    Chicago Bears LB Roquan Smith was credited with 13 tackles (nine solo) against the Denver Broncos in Week 2.

  • Allen Robinson - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/15/19 11:04pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson caught four passes for 41 yards against the Denver Broncos on Sunday, Sept. 15.

    Huddle Up: Robinson led the Bears in targets (seven), catches (four) and receiving yards (41), which speaks more to Chicago's hibernating passing game than anything else. With Anthony Miller still slowed by injuries, Robinson is the only playable Bears receiver as your No. 3 option.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/15/19 10:57pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson carried 10 times for 25 yards and a touchdown and added to receptions for seven yards in Week 2 against the Dallas Cowboys. The touchdown was his 107th rushing score, moving him past Jim Brown for fifth on the all-time list.

    Huddle Up: Peterson is going to have his ups and downs because he is so dependent on positive game-script on what figures to be an offense facing plenty of negative game scripts, so owners have to be happy when he scores a touchdown in one of the latter situations. Peterson figures to be little more than a middling flex option in Week 3 versus the Chicago Bears.

  • Tarik Cohen - RB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/15/19 10:53pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen registered 25 yards on six combined touches (four rushes, two receptions) in Week 2 against the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: Like pretty much everyone on the Bears offense, Cohen is off to a slow start. As one of the few potential difference makers, Cohen is worth holding onto, though you should consider alternatives for your active lineup until Chicago starts showing more life on offense.

  • David Montgomery - RB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/15/19 10:45pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery had 18 carries for 62 yards and a touchdown during the team's Week 2 win over the Denver Broncos. He was targeted three times as a receiver, catching one pass for six yards.

    Huddle Up: After playing sparingly in the team's primetime opener, Montgomery served as the focal point of Chicago's offense in Week 2, logging 19 touches, which was more than three times Tarik Cohen, who finished second with six. There wasn't a lot of room to operate, but Montgomery ran hard and scored the team's only TD, barely breaking the goal line from a yard out. He's an RB3 or FLEX contributor for now, but his upside is higher than that.

  • Dak Prescott - QB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 9/15/19 10:41pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott finished 26-of-30 for 269 yards and three touchdowns to go along with one interception in Week 2 versus the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Although it wasn't quite his 405-yard, four-TD effort against the New York Giants in Week 1, his fantasy owners have to be thrilled by what they are getting from him so far - even if the competition hasn't been all that great. Speaking of which, the Cowboys face the Miami Dolphins in Week 3. It would be a shocker if Prescott isn't able to put up top-10 fantasy quarterback numbers in that matchup.

  • Mitchell Trubisky - QB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/15/19 10:33pm ET

    Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky connected on 16 of his 27 passing attempts for 120 yards against the Denver Broncos in Week 2. He also ran once for eight yards.

    Huddle Up: If you watched early, John Fox-era Trubisky, this looked eerily familiar as the third-year pro was heavily managed. Only one of Trubisky's completions went for more than 20 yards, but it was his last one, a clutch 25-yarder to set up the game-winning field goal. Maybe that gives him something to build off. Maybe not. For now, Trubisky should be nowhere near your starting lineup.

  • Cooper Kupp - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 9/15/19 10:24pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp caught five passes for 120 yards against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Kupp (nine) was targeted more than Cooks (four) and Woods (two) combined this week, and he showed his strength on a bruising 66-yard catch and run that was originally ruled a touchdown. He seems to be Goff's favorite target, but there's too much volatility to consider Kupp more than a WR2.

  • George Kittle - TE - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 9/15/19 10:21pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle caught all three of his targets for 54 yards in Week 2 versus the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Although his owners probably aren't thrilled about Deebo Samuel getting featured this week, it's only going to help Kittle moving forward if another player like the rookie emerges. He is still a top-three fantasy tight end. Considering the Seattle Seahawks' Will Dissly went off for two touchdowns against Pittsburgh Steelers this week, Kittle might be in for a bit of market correction to his slow start when the 49ers host the Steelers in Week 3.

  • Brandin Cooks - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 9/15/19 10:19pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks caught three passes for 74 yards and a touchdown on Sunday, Sept. 15, against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Cooks has just five receptions through two games, but 74 yards and a score made Week 2 a success. Keep him in your lineup as a WR2.

  • John Ross - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/15/19 10:12pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross hauled in four of his eight targets for 112 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Ross was pretty much held in check until the final drive. It was then he got loose for a 66-yard touchdown, breaking a couple of tackles near the catch point before showing off his world-class speed on his way to the end zone. Ross could have it tough against the Buffalo Bills' tough defense in Week 3 and is unlikely to average the 10 targets he is through two weeks once A.J. Green returns, but he's done more than enough to solidify his place in this offense moving forward. Consider him an upside WR3 for now.

  • Robert Woods - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 9/15/19 10:11pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods tallied two receptions for 33 yards against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Targeted a team-high 13 times in Week 1, Woods saw just two passes thrown his way Sunday. With so many options in the passing game there are always going to be games like this, and doubtless the loss of Drew Brees allowed the Rams to be more conservative than they may otherwise have been. Woods remains a WR2 entering Week 3.

  • Raheem Mostert - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 9/15/19 10:07pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert carried 13 times for 83 yards and added three receptions for 68 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 versus the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Owners saw shades of this last season before an elbow injury ultimately ruined his year. While it was clear Matt Breida was the featured back in this one, Mostert contributed early on a 39-yard screen in the first quarter. Life will not always be this good moving forward for Mostert, but he should be considered flex-worthy for as long as Tevin Coleman remains sidelined. That includes Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
