Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Kirk Cousins - QB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 5/19/19 10:35am ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins is entering his second season with the team and along with that come higher expectations. 'I think a year under his belt here in Minnesota and his familiarity with everything is going to bode well,' Vikings co-owner Mark Wilf said in the Minneapolis Star Tribune on Sunday, May 19. 'He's doing great. We expect a lot out of him as well as our whole team.'

    Huddle Up: After three consecutive top-10 fantasy QB finishes in Washington, Cousins finished 13th in his debut season in the Twin Cities, but a some of that was due to his one rushing TD after posting at least four over the previous three seasons. Draft him as a rock-solid QB2.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 5/18/19 6:36pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald could reach 100 catches because of all the 'quick-rhythm throws' in head coach Kliff Kingsbury's offense, in the opinion of Bucky Brooks of NFL.com.

    Huddle Up: Fitzgerald is coming off a down year, but with Kyler Murray under center and a pass-happy offense being installed, he could see an uptick in his numbers. While 100 catches may be a little optimistic, Fitzgerald is Arizona's most dependable receiver. It wouldn't be a shock to see him finish as a solid WR3.

  • Carson Wentz - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 5/18/19 4:50pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz has started contract extension talks with the Eagles, but the two sides are not close to an agreement at this point.

    Huddle Up: Wentz is under contract for a few more years but could receive a contract extension before the start of the 2019 season. Wentz has played well when he is healthy, but he has deal with injuries over the last few seasons. He can still be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues this upcoming season.

  • Jarvis Landry - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 5/17/19 6:17pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (undisclosed) said he has been held out of spring practices because of a minor injury. 'Everything's going well, man,' Landry said. 'And then when I get my opportunity to go out there and practice, I will and it'll be back to normal and fun.'

    Huddle Up: Landry should be a steady part of Cleveland's suddenly loaded passing attack, but his role out of the slot makes him more valuable in PPR formats. Still, he should be no worse than a WR3 in any league.

  • Kyle Rudolph - TE - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 5/17/19 2:55pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph has been offered a five-year contract extension, but the two sides have not made much progress in talks, according to a source. Rudolph would be paid among the top tight ends in the NFL if he signed the extension.

    Huddle Up: Rudolph's status with the Vikings is still uncertain at this point, so fantasy players should continue to monitor the situation. Rudolph can be a solid No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues.

  • Jerick McKinnon - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 5/16/19 9:34am ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida said Wednesday, May 15, the team could feature a three-man running back rotation also involving Jerick McKinnon and Tevin Coleman. 'They've talked to us about it,' Breida said. 'They've said, 'Hey, we're going to use all you guys.' All three of us are going to be used a lot. I don't want to give away any secrets, but we're all going to be used in the offense.' It's still too early/unclear how snaps will be divided.

    Huddle Up: There are ample fantasy points to be found with Kyle Shanahan running backs, but the current three-pronged outlook doesn't bode well for fantasy GMs at the moment. Hopefully you'll have ample time before your drafts to see if the picture takes on some clarity.

  • Kyle Rudolph - TE - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 5/16/19 7:22am ET

    Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph declined to take a pay cut, but he hopes to remain with the team. 'No, I won't,' Rudolph said. 'I'm too young for that.'

    Huddle Up: Rudolph can be a decent backup as a TE2 in fantasy, but his upside is minimal in the offense. If he's cut and winds up somewhere like New England? He could receive a spark.

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 5/15/19 6:59pm ET

    Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick took reps with the first-team offense during OTAs Tuesday, May 14.

    Huddle Up: Fitzpatrick had some big games for the Buccaneers last year, but he also delivered his share of duds. Even if he does beat out Josh Rosen for the starting gig, he doesn't have the weapons in Miami to be more than a low-end QB2.

  • Duke Johnson - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 5/15/19 6:52pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson missed voluntary OTAs for the second day in a row Wednesday, May 15.

    Huddle Up: Johnson has shown in the past that he can be a valuable contributor in PPR leagues, but his role in the offense was inconsistent last year, and the Cleveland backfield is going to be crowded when Kareem Hunt returns from suspension. At best, Johnson is a RB4 in PPR formats in 2019.

  • Deon Cain - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 5/15/19 6:47pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR Deon Cain's (knee) recovery from knee surgery is going well, according to general manager Chris Ballard, but Ballard said Cain isn't likely to return to full strength until midway through the regular season.

    Huddle Up: Cain is going to have a tough time securing a regular role in the offense if he is operating at less than 100 percent. He still has some appeal in keeper formats, but it sounds like he can be left on the waiver wire in redraft leagues.

  • T.Y. Hilton - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 5/15/19 1:09pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) likely will be limited during offseason workouts because the team wants him to rest after dealing with ankle injuries last season.

    Huddle Up: Hilton has posted at least 1,000 yards in five of the last six seasons and will continue to be the focal point in the passing game for the Colts. He can be considered a No. 1 receiver in all leagues this upcoming season.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 5/15/19 12:46pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) said he has been able to most of the drills during the offseason workouts. He said he hopes to be 100 percent healthy for the start of training camp.

    Huddle Up: Eifert has dealt with season-ending injuries in each of the last few seasons but can have a solid role in the passing game if he is healthy. Fantasy players should monitor his status over the new few months.

  • Albert Wilson - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 5/15/19 11:49am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Albert Wilson (hip) did not participate in practice Tuesday, May 14, because he is still recovering from a hip injury.

    Huddle Up: Wilson played well in his limited playing time this past season and should be one of the team's starting receivers in 2019. He should receive a solid amount of targets this upcoming season but probably would only be a late-round option in deeper leagues.

  • Duke Johnson - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 5/14/19 7:53am ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson will participate in voluntary organized team activities Tuesday, May 14.

    Huddle Up: Johnson is a useful PPR back, but his situation becomes dicey when Kareem Hunt returns from an eight-game suspension. Johnson is more of an RB4 if you can land him as such.

  • Odell Beckham - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 5/14/19 5:11am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. is expected to report to the team's first organized team activities practice Tuesday, May 14.

    Huddle Up: OBJ is an elite WR1 in fantasy, but the uncertainty of his new surroundings may keep him from being a top-three target in fantasy.
