Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 11/23/14 11:29pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald's (knee) sprained knee did not respond as hoped before the Week 12 game against the Seattle Seahawks, so he was inactive. He could well miss more games.

    Huddle Up: We'll know more about Fitzgerald's status later in the week. John Brown will continue to see more targets if Fitzgerald misses time.

  • Doug Martin - RB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 11/23/14 11:29pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) returned to the lineup in Week 12 against the Chicago Bears. He carried 11 times for 27 yards. He was sidelined for the past three games due to an ankle injury.

    Huddle Up: The Buccaneers simply can't run the football this season. Martin has struggled all year and isn't worth starting right now.

  • Ryan Mallett - QB - Houston Texans
    Posted 11/23/14 11:29pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallett (pectoral) suffered a pectoral injury in the Week 12 game against the Cincinnati Bengals, and he will go for an MRI. He might miss several games if the test shows a tear. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to return to a starting role.

    Huddle Up: Houston's passing game has been limited this season with both quarterbacks. We should know Mallet's diagnosis on Monday. Fitzpatrick is nothing more than a middle-of-the-road QB2.

  • Eddie Lacy - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 11/23/14 9:11pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (illness) ran 25 times for 125 yards and a touchdown in the Week 12 game against the Minnesota Vikings, and he added two receptions for 13 yards and a score. Lacy left the locker room after the game without speaking to reporters, and the team said Sunday, Nov. 23, that the running back was ill.

    Huddle Up: Lacy's illness obviously didn't bother him during the game. He should be fine for next week's showdown with New England. Lacy is locked in as an RB1.

  • Tim Wright - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/23/14 8:08pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Tim Wright played a season-high 60 snaps in Week 12 against the Detroit Lions, which shattered his previous best of 21 snaps, which he hit twice. He finished with five receptions for 36 yards and two touchdowns.

    Huddle Up: The Patriots are a gameplan specific team, so Wright's increase in snaps might be a one-week scenario. He's worth adding as a second tight end but Wright could go back to playing 15 snaps next week.

  • LeGarrette Blount - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/23/14 8:08pm ET

    New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount carried 12 times for a team-high 78 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 12 game against the Detroit Lions after re-signing with the team this week.

    Huddle Up: Jonas Gray didn't play a snap after arriving late for practice earlier in the week. Blount played mainly late in the game when the Patriots were nursing a lead but still performed well. He should be targeted on the waiver this week.

  • Josh Gordon - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 11/23/14 8:08pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon posted eight receptions for 120 yards in his regular season debut in Week 12 against the Atlanta Falcons. He was targeted a game-high 16 times in the win.

    Huddle Up: Gordon wasn't on a snap count and dominated like he never missed a game. He's a WR1 going forward.

  • Isaiah Crowell - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 11/23/14 8:08pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell carried 12 times for game-high 88 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 12 game against the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: Crowell and Terrance West are both seeing carries in the Browns backfield but Crowell is the lead dog right now. Crowell is an RB2, while West is more of a flex play...at least for now.

  • Fred Jackson - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 11/22/14 9:33pm ET

    Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) is officially listed as questionable for the team's Week 12 game Monday, Nov. 24, but head coach Doug Marrone said he is planning on Jackson playing.

    Huddle Up: Jackson is still less less than 100 percent, going up against a tough rush defense and playing on Monday night. He's a risky flex option this week for fantasy owners with Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon also in the mix for touches.

  • Doug Martin - RB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 11/22/14 9:33pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) took most of the first-team repetitions in practice Friday, Nov. 21.

    Huddle Up: The Bucs running game is a mess right now. Martin has a good matchup against the Bears this week but even if he does get a majority of the touches, he's a dicey flex play at best.

  • Marcel Reece - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 11/22/14 7:26pm ET

    Oakland Raiders FB Marcel Reece earned more carries after his performance in Week 12 Thursday, Nov. 20. Reece rushed for 46 yards during a crucial 17-play, 80-yard drive late in the game. Interim head coach Tony Sparano said he could envision using Reece as the primary running back again.

    Huddle Up: Reece and Latavius Murray have likely passed struggling veterans Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew on the depth chart. Murray ran for 112 yards and two scores on just four carries Thursday but suffered a concussion. Reece has performed well in spot starts in the past. He's a solid waiver wire addition next week.

  • Reggie Bush - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 11/22/14 5:59pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is likely out for Week 12 and is targeting the Thanksgiving Day game Thursday, Nov. 27, to return.

    Huddle Up: Joique Bell will start and is a RB2 this week. Theo Riddick will also see some time as a pass catcher. He'll be an RB3/flex play against the Patriots.

  • Arian Foster - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 11/22/14 5:59pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) is highly unlikely to suit up Sunday, Nov. 23, for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Alfred Blue would make his second straight start against the Bengals if Foster is inactive. Blue will be a RB2 and should see 20+ touches.

  • Pierre Thomas - RB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 11/22/14 5:59pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) was limited in practice Saturday, Nov. 22, and is probable for Monday night's tilt with the Baltimore Ravens.

    Huddle Up: Khiry Robinson is out for the game, so Thomas will be the No. 2 back behind Mark Ingram. Ingram will get the majority of snaps but Thomas will see some time on passing downs. He's a flier flex play in deeper PPR leagues this week.

  • Josh Gordon - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 11/22/14 2:19pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was officially activated from the exempt/commissioner permission list Saturday, Nov. 22. In a subsequent move, the team waived LB Keith Pough.

    Huddle Up: Gordon should obviously be inserted into fantasy lineups this week now that he's been activated. The Browns say they'll monitor his snap count but Gordon will still be on the field enough to make a fantasy impact in his first game back.

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 11/21/14 9:13pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (shoulder, knee) is expected to play in Week 12 unless he suffers a setback prior to the game, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Miller is now dealing with a knee injury but is expected to play on Sunday. However, the Miami/Denver game doesn't kickoff until 4:25 pm ET, so it's not an ideal situation for fantasy owners. Miller will be a RB2 in what should be a high-scoring game if he plays but he's a gamble for owners this week because of the late start. Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams will split touches if Miller is out.

  • Matthew Stafford - QB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 11/21/14 9:13pm ET

    Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford, who is currently on pace to finish with the fewest passing yards in a single season for his career, has struggled on deep-ball connections, especially in the last two weeks with WR Calvin Johnson returning. Stafford has completed only 14 percent of his passes at least 20 yards downfield to Johnson the last two weeks, and he's thrown an interception on deep targets in each of the pair's four full games together. Stafford is also struggling in the face of pressure this year, with his completion percentage under pressure dropping from 42 percent last year to 34 percent in 2014, his lowest since 2010.

    Huddle Up: Stafford was predicted by many to have a huge a season but it's been just the opposite. Despite the addition of Golden Tate and rookie TE Eric Ebron, Stafford has been a fantasy disappointment in 2014. That's not likely to change over the final six weeks.

  • Jonas Gray - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/21/14 6:46pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray was late reporting to the team's facility Friday, Nov. 21 and did not practice . He is listed as probable for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Hey Jonas, it doesn't take long to go from the penthouse to the outhouse in New England. Nothing's official as of right now, but don't be shocked to see the RB pop up on the inactive list Sunday, with Shane Vereen or even newly re-signed LeGarrette Blount in a lead role against the Lions.

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 11/21/14 6:37pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (shoulder, knee) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is listed as questionable for Week 12 against the Denver Broncos. Miller has been nursing a sore shoulder for the last three weeks, but he also recently suffered a knee injury in practice. RBs Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas will likely share the workload if Miller sits out. RB LaMichael James could also be activated for the first time this year.

    Huddle Up: It looks like Miller's owners are facing a dreaded late-afternoon game-time decision Sunday so make plans now.

  • Charles Clay - TE - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 11/21/14 6:37pm ET

    Miami Dolphins TE Charles Clay (knee) did not practice Friday, Nov. 21, and he is doubtful for Week 12 against the Denver Broncos. Clay suffered a setback in practice this week, and he's been nursing a sore right knee since training camp. TE Dion Sims would replace Clay in the starting lineup, with TE Gator Hoskins serving as the backup. Sims has caught nine passes for 124 yards and a touchdown this year.

    Huddle Up: This is shaping up to be Clay's first missed game of the year, and Sims would be a suitable plug-in if your league waiver-wire is completely picked over.
