Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/18/14 3:52pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (ankle) practiced for the third straight day Thursday, Sept. 18. Miller has a slight limp after spraining his ankle in the team's Week 2 game, but has not been on the injury report this week.

    Huddle Up: Continued good news for Miller owners as the RB is in line to get the majority of work Sunday with Knowshon Moreno out with a dislocated elbow.

  • Tony Romo - QB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 9/18/14 3:52pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) is participating in practice Thursday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: Romo was out with a tight back Wednesday, but as of now, everything looks A-OK for a Sunday start against the Rams.

  • Eric Decker - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 9/18/14 3:52pm ET

    New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) is not participating in practice Thursday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: Not a huge surprise after the hammy tightened up and forced the WR to leave late in last Sunday's game. The good news is, though, that the Jets have an extra day with their Week 3 contest not until Monday night, and Decker will try to give it go in practices Friday and Saturday.

  • A.J. Green - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/18/14 3:52pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) is likely to play in Week 3, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

    Huddle Up: The stud wideout reportedly returned to practice Thursday, and it's sounding like he might try and give it a go Sunday against the Titans. However, that's a mixed bag for fantasy owners as there's the risk the WR could always re-aggravate the injury and depart at any time -- a la Week 2 -- and leave his owners short in the fantasy points department.

  • Marqise Lee - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/18/14 3:36pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (hamstring) aggravated his hamstring injury in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17, and he's now been ruled out for Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts. His availability beyond Week 3 is unknown. 'My main focus is getting it right,' said Lee, who is tied for the team lead with eight catches for 73 yards. 'The hamstring can linger. If you try to continue to try to come back, come back, come back when you're feeling 85, 90 (percent), you're still going to have issues.'

    Huddle Up: The Jags are hurting for pass-catchers with WRs Allen Hurns (ankle) and Cecil Shorts (hamstring) battling injuries and TE Marcedes Lewis (ankle) on short-term IR. See what develops the rest of today and Friday as the team preps for Sunday's contest against the Colts.

  • Jamaal Charles - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/18/14 3:36pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) is participating in practice Thursday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: No official word, but it figures to be limited participation to be sure. See how Friday goes, but as of right now, plan on Knile Davis being the team's No. 1 back in Miami on Sunday.

  • Jordan Cameron - TE - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/18/14 3:36pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (shoulder) is participating in practice Thursday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: That's two straight days of work for Cameron who sat out Week 2. See if the progress continues in the always-important Friday practice.

  • Doug Martin - RB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 9/18/14 3:36pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) is unlikely to play in the team's Week 3 game due to a knee injury, according to a league source. Martin will test the knee out pregame to be sure.

    Huddle Up: If Martin can't go, it'll be his second straight week on the sideline while leaving the extremely tasty matchup -- the Falcons surrender the most points to opposing fantasy RBs -- to Bobby Rainey.

  • Doug Martin - RB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 9/18/14 10:02am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) and RB Bobby Rainey are expected to split carries in Week 3 and in the near future.

    Huddle Up: Rainey looked good last week in relief of Martin, who has struggled even when healthy thus far this season. It's likely to be a jobshare while Martin is nicked, with Rainey playing well enough to keep it a jobshare the rest of the season.

  • Victor Cruz - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 9/18/14 10:02am ET

    New York Giants WR Victor Cruz had three drops in Week 2 after demanding to see the ball more before the game. He vowed to get better moving forward.

    Huddle Up: Maybe the Giants should demand that Cruz catch the ball better? The new-look Giants offense is still a work in progress, as is Cruz's role in said offense.

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/18/14 10:02am ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (ankle) was not on the team's injury report Wednesday, Sept. 17.

    Huddle Up: This is notable, and good news, because Miller needs to pick up the slack left by Knowshon Moreno's absence. A healthy Miller likely means a heavily-loaded Miller this weekend.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/18/14 10:02am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard is on pace for 328 carries, while rookie RB Jeremy Hill is ticketed for 152 for a total of 480. That would be the most by two Bengals backs in a single season, shattering the previous record of 405, set in 2000. Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson isn't estimating how many carries each will get on a given day, and said Wednesday, Sept. 17, that is varies from series to series. He calls plays on the sidelines rather than up in the booth so he can sense the ebb and flow of the game. 'It's the way things unfold. But Gio is the starting tailback on this football team. So at the end of the day, he's going to get some chances that maybe everybody else doesn't get until he proves he can't or the other guy proves that he's better,' Jackson said.

    Huddle Up: No surprises here, not even Jackson's backfield tandem being on pace to set records for usage. You knew Hue wanted to run the ball, you knew Gio would be the lead guy, and you hoped Hill would prove up to handling his share of the load; thus far all have proven true.

  • Carson Palmer - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/18/14 10:02am ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17.

    Huddle Up: Palmer is dealing with a nerve issue that is expected to keep him out of action for an as-yet undetermined length of time. Drew Stanton will fill in while Palmer is out, which does nick the fantasy value of Michael Floyd and Larry Fitzgerald going forward--more so Floyd than Fitz, at least based on last week's targets.

  • Andre Ellington - RB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/18/14 10:02am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17.

    Huddle Up: Expect this to be the plan going forward for the Cardinals: resting Ellington's injured foot during the week and hoping he can continue to give them 20 or so touches on game day without losing the explosiveness that makes him so effective.

  • BenJarvus Green-Ellis - RB - Free Agent
    Posted 9/18/14 10:02am ET

    Several clubs have reportedly reached out to free-agent RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis (Bengals), who is still in the process of rehab after suffering a hip injury in the preseason.

    Huddle Up: BJGE is a veteran running back who could fit into a variety of systems, but it's unlikely he would land with a team where he would have significant fantasy value.

  • Jonathan Dwyer - RB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/17/14 9:59pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Jonathan Dwyer has been deactivated from all team activities Wednesday, Sept. 17. The team was made aware of allegations by the Phoenix police and are cooperating fully with authorities. The team plans to closely monitor the situation as it develops and evaluate additional information as it becomes available.

    Huddle Up: Stepfan Taylor will take over as Arizona's No. 2 back for now. He has some fantasy upside considering Andre Ellington is playing through a foot injury. Ellington owners in 12-14 team leagues should add Taylor as insurance.

  • Carson Palmer - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/17/14 9:59pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton is in line to start his second straight game against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3 with QB Carson Palmer (shoulder) sidelined.

    Huddle Up: Stanton played pretty well against the Giants. However, he doesn't possess the same arm strength as Palmer to get the ball down the field to his wide receivers. The 49ers secondary can be exploited but Stanton is no better than a low-end QB2 this week.

  • Julian Edelman - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/17/14 9:59pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (back) was added to the injury report and was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17.

    Huddle Up: The injury isn't believed to be serious but check back on Thursday just to be safe. Edelman is a strong WR2 this week against the Raiders.

  • Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TE - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 9/17/14 6:20pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17, and has been ruled out for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: The rookie will sit out a second straight game, leaving the bulk of the TE targets for Brandon Myers.

  • Carson Palmer - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/17/14 6:20pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (shoulder) is believed to be improving steadily, and the team likes the quarterbacks on their roster, so they will not be looking to add a QB from outside the organization.

    Huddle Up: Good news in the sense that the Cards must feel Palmer's return isn't too far off, but nerve injuries can be tricky and slower in healing so have patience and a clear backup plan if you're waiting on the veteran QB.
