Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Andrew Luck - QB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 10/1/16 2:39pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay said QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) needs to do a better job protecting himself so he can stay on the field this season. 'He has to understand - and he learned from the Denver game - the importance of staying on the field. I think honing his game is the key. There isn't any sort of chronic shoulder injury or something like that,' Irsay said.

    Huddle Up: Luck has dealt with injuries in the past but has stayed healthy so far this season. Luck has played well in the first three games of the season and should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues as long as he is staying healthy.

  • Stefon Diggs - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 10/1/16 12:34pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (groin) fully participated in practice Saturday, Oct. 1, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Diggs was held to 40 yards in his last game but should be more involved in the passing game this week. It should be a favorable matchup for Diggs, and he can be a No. 2 receiver in most leagues.

  • Jerick McKinnon - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 10/1/16 12:34pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (toe) fully participated in practice Saturday, Oct. 1, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon likely will share work with Matt Asiata during the game. He has rushed for only 53 yards over the first three games and should only be considered a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Rashad Jennings - RB - New York Giants
    Posted 10/1/16 12:09pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited during practice Saturday, Oct. 1, and is listed as questionable for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Jennings may be a game-time decision for the game but will be a risky option for owners since he will be playing on Monday Night Football. Owners probably should look for other options to use in their lineups this week.

  • Dez Bryant - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 10/1/16 11:35am ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) flew with the team to San Francisco on Saturday, Oct. 1, keeping open the possibility he will try to play in Week 4 against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: In theory, Bryant could play since pain tolerance appears to be the major issue. He essentially ruled himself out Friday, but he is listed as questionable on the injury report. Check back for another update Sunday, but owners will have limited options if they wait for the inactives since this game will be played in the late afternoon window. Cole Beasley should be poised for 10-plus targets and Jason Witten figures to be heavily involved as well in the likely event Bryant sits.

  • Delanie Walker - TE - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 10/1/16 11:06am ET

    Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (hamstring) is questionable for Week 4 against the Houston Texans, but he practiced on Friday, Sept. 30, and is optimistic about his chances of playing after missing sitting out against the Oakland Raiders last week. 'I feel like I have an opportunity to play this week. I did a lot of running (Friday),' Walker said.

    Huddle Up: It might be wise for the Titans to hold Walker out one more week, but there is no denying he can make an impact if he plays. Unfortunately, the matchup against Houston is not a good one for him, so owners may want to look in another direction even if he does go. Jace Amaro will likely pick up the slack again if he can't, but he is a longshot to cause a ripple in fantasy.

  • Eric Decker - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 10/1/16 9:36am ET

    New York Jets WR Eric Decker (shoulder) will attempt to rest and rehab his partially torn rotator cuff, but head coach Todd Bowles would not discount the possibility of it becoming a season-ending injury. 'I?m not sure. They have to monitor it. (Doctors) said some people play with it over the course of time. We?ll see how it goes,' Bowles said.

    Huddle Up: Decker has suffered from similar shoulder injuries in the past, dating back to his days as a college baseball player, and he has already noted his shoulder feels better now than it did earlier this week. At this point, owners should hold onto him and hope for an early November return, which seems possible given his previous history. Quincy Enunwa will replace him in the lineup and should be considered a high-upside WR3 in the meantime.

  • Kenneth Dixon - RB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 10/1/16 9:26am ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) is targeting a Week 5 return, but the rookie will likely be eased back into the mix given head coach John Harbaugh's history of not giving rookie running backs heavy workloads, according to ESPN's Jamison Hensley.

    Huddle Up: A committee in Baltimore has been the most likely option the whole time and makes sense initially how long Dixon has been out, but the fourth-round pick brings the kind of explosiveness to the table that Terrance West and Justin Forsett cannot. It might take a while for it to happen, but owners should expect Dixon to assume the lead-back role no later than mid-November.

  • Tyreek Hill - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/30/16 9:45pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill has to understand how to use his speed within the dimensions of the playing field, according to head coach Andy Reid, but Reid said he expects Hill to make plenty of big plays as he develops.

    Huddle Up: Hill doesn't need to be owned in redraft leagues, but his elite speed makes him a potential lottery ticket in dynasty formats.

  • Golden Tate - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 9/30/16 9:32pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate is still the top option in the passing game, according to offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter, and Cooter said Tate's slow start is a product of the offense's emphasis of spreading the ball around.

    Huddle Up: While Marvin Jones and Theo Riddick thrive, Tate has just 94 yards through three games. Tate should have his chance to shine at some point, and he has enough upside to use as a WR3 against a winless Bears team in Week 4.

  • Michael Floyd - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/30/16 9:11pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd continues to struggle with consistency in practice and games, according to head coach Bruce Arians. 'He shines and then all of a sudden he'll drop an easy one,' Arians said. 'You just can't do that.'

    Huddle Up: After closing last season on a high note, Floyd hasn't been able to find his rhythm. He has time to turn it around, but he is a risky WR3 right now.

  • Kyle Rudolph - TE - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/30/16 9:01pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph is easy to trust because of his big catch radius, according to QB Sam Bradford.

    Huddle Up: Bradford has targeted Rudolph 18 times in two games, and the strong chemistry between the two makes Rudolph a TE1 against the Giants in Week 4.

  • Kendall Wright - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/30/16 8:35pm ET

    Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright is expected to provide a boost to the offense because of his quickness, according to offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie.

    Huddle Up: Tennessee is still looking for a go-to playmaker at the receiver position, so Wright has a chance to carve out a role. His role is unclear at this point, but he is worth keeping an eye on, particularly in PPR formats.

  • Reggie Bush - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/30/16 8:10pm ET

    Buffalo Bills RB Reggie Bush has plays designed for him to play slot receiver, according to head coach Rex Ryan, and Ryan said Bush's role in the offense will change on a weekly basis.

    Huddle Up: Despite Ryan's comments, Bush has been an afterthought for Buffalo's offense this year. He can be left on the waiver wire.

  • C.J. Spiller - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/30/16 8:03pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Spiller averaged just 3.11 yards per carry last season, but he caught 34 of his 42 targets and averaged 7.03 yards per catch.

    Huddle Up: Spiller's role with Seattle remains unclear, but he could carve out a role as the team's third-down back. He could be worth stashing in deeper PPR formats.

  • Tavon Austin - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 9/30/16 6:41pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Double check his status on Sunday, but Austin looks like a good bet to suit up. The speedy receiver can be big-play dependent, but with 29 targets through three games, the Rams are looking his way enough to take a chance on him as a WR3.

  • Kenny Britt - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 9/30/16 6:33pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Kenny Britt (thigh) was a limited participant in practice Friday, Sept. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Britt has been the top receiver for the Rams thus far, and if he can't suit up, Brian Quick could be worth a roll of the dice in DFS formats.

  • Braxton Miller - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 9/30/16 6:20pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (hamstring) did not practice Friday, Sept. 30, and he has been ruled out for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: With Miller still sidelined, Will Fuller is the unquestioned No. 2 option in the passing game and a high-upside flex option against a beatable Tennessee secondary.

  • Marvin Jones - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 9/30/16 5:27pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: It appears that Jones should be able to play in Week 4 and likely will receive a solid amount of targets. He should be a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues since it will be a favorable matchup.

  • Eric Ebron - TE - Detroit Lions
    Posted 9/30/16 5:23pm ET

    Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Ebron should be able to play this week since he was a full participant in practice. He has been a solid part of the team's passing game this season and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.
