Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Reggie Bush - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 10/24/14 11:15pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is expected to be inactive for the Week 9 game against the Atlanta Falcons in London, according to a source Friday, Oct. 24.

    Huddle Up: With Bush out, Joique Bell will carry the load for the Lions against a struggling Atlanta defense. Bell is a strong RB2 this week.

  • Calvin Johnson - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 10/24/14 11:15pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) is unlikely to play in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons in London, according to a source. The team has a bye in Week 9, and head coach Jim Caldwell is reportedly looking at the big picture.

    Huddle Up: Megatron will likely be back after the Lions Week 10 bye. The good news for Johnson owners is Megatron's ankle should be fully healed when he returns in Week 11.

  • Ryan Mathews - RB - San Diego Chargers
    Posted 10/24/14 10:04pm ET

    San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee) missed his sixth consecutive game in Week 8 Thursday, Oct. 23, against the Denver Broncos, but he could return to practice as early as Monday, Oct. 27. However, Mathews is nearing a return and unlikely to miss more than one additional game, if that. Mathews worked out before the game Thursday, and his right knee was stable and he appeared conditioned.

    Huddle Up: Mathews is nearing a return and will resume his place atop the Chargers depth chart, with Branden Oliver taking over Danny Woodhead's role as the pass catching back. Mathews will be a RB2 once he's back in the lineup.

  • Martellus Bennett - TE - Chicago Bears
    Posted 10/24/14 6:20pm ET

    Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 24, and is probable for Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Bennett has steadily upped his participation throughout the week and can be started Sunday without hesitation.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 10/24/14 6:20pm ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Graham figures to be out there Sunday night after playing a week ago, and his fantasy owners pretty much have to roll with him and chalk up his pointless Week 7 performance as a circumstantial aberration.

  • Travis Kelce - TE - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 10/24/14 6:13pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (ribs) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 24, and is probable for Week 8 against the St. Louis Rams.

    Huddle Up: You can continue to count on Kelce, who leads K.C. in targets and has scored in 3 of the last 4 games.

  • Khiry Robinson - RB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 10/24/14 6:13pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Khiry Robinson (forearm) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 24, and has been ruled out for Week 8.

    Huddle Up: With Pierre Thomas also out, the Saints' RB situation is actually quite clear for a change as Mark Ingram should handle the bulk of the carries and Travaris Cadet will be the pass-catching back in a fairly decent matchup against the visiting Packers.

  • Shonn Greene - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 10/24/14 6:13pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 24, and is listed as probable for Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Not good news for Bishop Sankey owners as the veteran will return after a 2-game absence and cut into the rookie's workload.

  • James Starks - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 10/24/14 6:13pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (ankle) was limited in practice for the second straight day Friday, Oct. 24, but is probable for Week 8 against the New Orleans Saints. The Packers didn't practice Friday, so Starks' designation is an estimation.

    Huddle Up: Starks should be out there Sunday night, spelling Eddie Lacy as usual.

  • Trent Richardson - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 10/24/14 4:01pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) has been doing rehab work this week but hasn't practiced. He is listed as questionable could be a game-time decision in Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Indy's late-afternoon kickoff in Pittsburgh on Sunday won't help T-Rich owners, but the RB is a longshot to play in any case given he hasn't practiced at all. Get another back in your lineup now and prepare to leave him there.

  • DeAngelo Williams - RB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 10/24/14 3:57pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 8 against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Williams will miss his sixth game this season, leaving the Panthers' RB workload primarily on the shoulders of Jonathan Stewart, who returned from his own 3-game absence last week with 62 total yards on 14 touches.

  • Shane Vereen - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 10/24/14 3:57pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 24, because of an illness, according to a source. The team does not appear to be worried since Vereen is not injured.

    Huddle Up: Just an FYI for all the Vereen owners hoping the RB can follow up on his huge Week 7 outing (114 total yards, 2 TDs).

  • Jadeveon Clowney - LB - Houston Texans
    Posted 10/24/14 3:53pm ET

    Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney (knee) has a good chance to play in Week 8, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. Clowney will be on a limited snap count if he is active for the game.

    Huddle Up: Expect the first-overall pick to play this week after coming real close this past Monday night in Pittsburgh.

  • Darren Sproles - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 10/24/14 3:53pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 8 against the Arizona Cardinals.

    Huddle Up: Sproles took advantage of Philly's timely bye last week, and figures to be able to play Sunday in Arizona. Double check before kickoff, though, just to make sure.

  • Calvin Johnson - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 10/24/14 3:05pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) will truly be a game-time decision against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 8 in London. Johnson was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable. "He did work yesterday. I thought he did a pretty good job, but we'll see where he is today," head coach Jim Caldwell said of Johnson before Friday's practice.

    Huddle Up: It's still hard to envision him playing with a bye looming next week, but Megatron owners are going to need to set their alarms Saturday night to double check as the game kicks off at 9:30 a.m. ET/6:30 PT. If he does play, he's definitely worth a fantasy start as Caldwell and the Lions have insisted he won't be on the field unless he's near full health and ready to fully contribute.

  • Ronnie Hillman - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/24/14 3:05pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman continues to run with confidence in the absence of RB Montee Ball (groin), and Ball will likely find it hard to win his starting job back when he's healthy. He showed impressive footwork and showed breakaway speed in the team's Week 8 win over the San Diego Chargers Thursday, Oct. 23, and he could have easily finished with two touchdowns.

    Huddle Up: Hillman rushed for a career-high 109 yards and added 29 more on 3 receptions Thursday night and now has topped 100 total yards in each of his 3 starts, also scoring a pair of TDs in Week 7. Ball should still see touches when he returns in a few weeks but they figure to be in relief of the starter Hillman, whose stats and speed are going to be too hard for the Broncos to simply push aside.

  • Zac Stacy - RB - St. Louis Rams
    Posted 10/24/14 3:05pm ET

    St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy, who didn't have a touch in Week 7, could remain a factor in the backfield in Week 8 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Earlier in the week, head coach Jeff Fisher said Stacy could have 25 carries Sunday, Oct. 26. However, the team is likely to give RB Tre Mason every opportunity to develop the hot hand this weekend.

    Huddle Up: Sure, you don't figure on Stacy drawing a total blank every week, but the No. 1 gig fully appears to be Mason's job to lose at this point. Benny Cunningham, who has scored in each of the last 3 games and leads the team's backs in receptions with 16, will also continue to be involved as well.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 10/24/14 2:48pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (ribs) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 24, and is probable for Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens.

    Huddle Up: Bernard will go and will need to be more of a factor after gaining a season-low 16 total yards on 9 touches in last week's shutout loss in Indy.

  • Owen Daniels - TE - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 10/24/14 2:48pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels (knee) underwent a cleanup procedure on his knee and will not play in Week 8 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Head coach John Harbaugh said he doesn't expect Daniels to miss much time.

    Huddle Up: It's a bit of a scramble for Daniels' owners trying to replace fantasy's 11th-ranked TE on short notice. Third-round pick Crockett Gillmore is in line to start for Baltimore, and he has only 3 receptions for 29 yards so far.

  • Reggie Wayne - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 10/24/14 2:48pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (elbow) has officially been ruled out for Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: As expected, the veteran wideout will be down Sunday, leaving more targets and looks for Hakeem Nicks, rookie Donte Moncrief and TEs Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener.
