Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 6/26/16 1:56pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) was noncommittal about his status for training camp. Watkins said if he's not ready for training camp then he'll get ready for the first game of the regular season.

    Huddle Up: Watkins, who caught 60 passes for 1,047 yards and nine TDs in 13 games last season, normally would be considered a solid low-end WR1, but his latest health issues certainly has caused his stock to drop. We'll all need to monitor his situation throughout training camp.

  • Will Fuller - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 6/26/16 1:56pm ET

    The Houston Texans have agreed to terms with WR Will Fuller on a four-year, $10.2 million contract, according to a source familiar with the terms of the deal. All first-round contracts include a fifth-year option.

    Huddle Up: If he can show his buttery-hands issues are behind him, the first-round pick is the favorite to start opposite the elite DeAndre Hopkins. Until proven otherwise, though, in the Texans' new-look offense, Fuller is no better than a WR5 option in the majority of leagues.

  • Jalen Ramsey - CB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 6/26/16 1:56pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey (knee) is doing well and should be ready to go when training camp opens next month.

    Huddle Up: This would be outstanding news for a franchise which had the rookie season of their top-five pick a year ago scuttled by a knee injury. Stay tuned ...

  • Robert Griffin III - QB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 6/26/16 1:56pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III is working on planting his back foot before throwing passes, and head coach Hue Jackson said Griffin is doing a good job of checking the ball down.

    Huddle Up: Many are projecting a return to fantasy relevance for the QB, but we at the Huddle aren't buying it -- for now -- as he's currently ranked as the 34th QB on the board in the preseason rankings.

  • Todd Gurley - RB - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 6/26/16 1:56pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley will be the focal point of the offense, offensive coordinator Rob Boras said, but head coach Jeff Fisher said the ball will be spread around a little more to try to generate explosive plays.

    Huddle Up: Gurley finished as fantasy's fifth-ranked RB in 2015 despite missing three full games. Given Fisher's run-first mentality -- especially this season given a rookie QB is expected to be at the helm -- expect even better numbers from Gurley, who's another year removed from his 2014 knee injury at Georgia.

  • Emmanuel Sanders - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 6/26/16 8:18pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders is entering the final year of his contract but is not worried about his contract situation because he believes something will be worked out.

    Huddle Up: Sanders did end the 2015 season -- playoffs included -- as the Broncos' best receiver, but it's fair to wonder how Denver is going to fit in his contract extension with the team already paying elite money to fellow wideout Demaryius Thomas and LB Von Miller set to become the highest-paid defensive player in the league.

  • Andrew Hawkins - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 6/26/16 8:18pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Andrew Hawkins missed eight games with a concussion and other injuries in 2015, but he has looked good as a slot receiver during offseason workouts.

    Huddle Up: Hawkins is the Browns' top-returning WR in terms of receiving yards (276) but he faces a battle for a roster spot with the team drafting no fewer than five wideouts this spring. Either Hawkins or fellow holdover Taylor Gabriel figure to stick, but both sticking around could be iffy.

  • Carson Wentz - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 6/26/16 8:23pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz might not even dress on game days, and QB Chase Daniel would likely take over as the starter if QB Sam Bradford goes down, according to beat writer Jimmy Kempski.

    Huddle Up: Wentz is facing a huge jump going from the FCS to the league's No. 2 overall draft pick, but if the competition is close, look for Wentz to get the benefit of the doubt given the price the Eagles paid to move up in the draft.

  • Julius Thomas - TE - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 6/26/16 8:23pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas has looked unstoppable in OTAs, according to beat writer Hays Carlyon.

    Huddle Up: The 6-4, 250-pound Thomas is definitely a mismatch for DBs, but the key question is health as he's never played more than 14 games in any of his first five NFL seasons.

  • Austin Hooper - TE - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 6/25/16 10:54pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper has impressed offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan with his route-running ability and ball skills. 'He really comes off the ball hard,' Shanahan said. 'He's not the fastest guy in the world, but he's fast enough. He's got good cutting ability, so he can break guys off at the top of his routes.'

    Huddle Up: Hooper was drafted to fill the role vacated by Tony Gonzalez. Those are big shoes to fill, but it's a positive sign that the rookie is impressing coaches early on in the process.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 6/25/16 10:54pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson is likely to open the year as the backup to WR DeSean Jackson and WR Pierre Garcon while WR Jamison Crowder works as the starting slot receiver, according to bear writer John Keim.

    Huddle Up: Playing in a backup capacity will limit Doctson's initial fantasy value, but with both Jackson and Garcon in potentially the final year of their respective contracts his dynasty value remains strong.

  • Calvin Johnson - WR - Retired
    Posted 6/25/16 10:54pm ET

    Retired WR Calvin Johnson (Lions) said Saturday, June 25, that he feels good about his decision to retire and is no coming back to the NFL.

    Huddle Up: Apparently we've run out of "Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Jets have not agreed to a contract yet" news, so we're filling the void with "Calvin Johnson is still retired" news. Updates to this story as non-news continues to develop.

  • Zach Zenner - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 6/25/16 10:54pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Zach Zenner (ribs, lung) has appeared to be fully recovered from his rib and lung injuries last season.

    Huddle Up: There is a definite role for Zenner in the Detroit backfield. He flashed last preseason and could make a run at a chunk of the carries this August as well.

  • Jeremy Kerley - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 6/25/16 10:54pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Jeremy Kerley is expected to be the Lions' No. 3 wide receiver behind WRs Golden Tate and Marvin Jones and ahead of WR T.J. Jones.

    Huddle Up: The Lions throw enough to make a third wideout a potentially viable fantasy entity, so it's worth watching whether or not Kerley can hold off Jones for the gig this August.

  • Tarvaris Jackson - QB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 6/25/16 10:54pm ET

    Free-agent QB Tarvaris Jackson (Seahawks) was arrested Friday, June 24, and has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after he allegedly pulled a gun on his wife.

    Huddle Up: While his attempt at quarterback play was criminally bad, this is obviously far more significant. Don't look for him to return to his previous role as Russell Wilson's clipboard holder any time soon.

  • Shaun Suisham - PK - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 6/24/16 12:24pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers PK Shaun Suisham was released Friday, June 24. PK Chris Boswell enters training camp as the likely starter.

    Huddle Up: The 34-year-old kicker, who is recovering from a torn ACL in his left knee, reportedly has failed a physical, meaning Boswell will be back after scoring 113 points in 12 games last season.

  • Kirk Cousins - QB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 6/24/16 12:24pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins has had discussions about a long-term deal over the last week, but talks continue to go nowhere. He's expected to play 2016 on the $19.95 million franchise tender.

    Huddle Up: Again, Washington should be in no hurry to dole out a long-term, big-$$$ extension for a QB who still has more to prove.

  • Antonio Andrews - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 6/24/16 12:24pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Antonio Andrews has responded well to the added competition of RB DeMarco Murray and RB Derrick Henry, head coach Mike Mularkey said.

    Huddle Up: Andrews led the Titans with 520 yards on 143 carries last season, but no matter how good he looks in the offseason, it's expected to be the Murray and Henry Show come the games that count.

  • Dorial Green-Beckham - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 6/24/16 5:42pm ET

    Tennessee Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham said he is happy with how he performed during offseason workouts and expects to be more productive in 2016 because he is more comfortable.

    Huddle Up: There's plenty of opportunity for DGB to continue to emerge as a big-play producer in the Titans' young offense after he averaged 17.2 yards per catch and hauled in four TD receptions among his 32 grabs last season as rookie.

  • Ameer Abdullah - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 6/24/16 5:42pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah averaged 4.7 yards per carry in the second of last season, and beat writer Tim Twentyman believes Abdullah will be given the opportunity to be the lead back in 2016.

    Huddle Up: It will certainly be a step up for the second-year back who rushed more than 14 times in only one game last season and finished the year with 143 attempts.
