Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Ronnie Hillman - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/29/14 9:20pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

    Huddle Up: Hillman's injury isn't believed to be serious. He'll be a high upside RB2 this week against the Patriots.

  • Andre Johnson - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 10/29/14 9:20pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

    Huddle Up: Johnson is getting a day of rest but he'll be in the starting lineup this week against the Eagles. Johnson hasn't lived up to expectations in 2014 but he's a WR2 versus a struggling Eagles secondary.

  • Stepfan Taylor - RB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 10/29/14 9:20pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Stepfan Taylor (calf) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 29, and he has been ruled out for Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Andre Ellington will handle most of the work against the Cowboys. He's locked in as a RB2 with Taylor not around to steal goal line carries.

  • A.J. Green - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 10/29/14 9:20pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) returned to practice on a limited basis Wednesday, Oct. 29. Green said he feels good, and he'll try to do more Thursday, Oct. 30. It looks more promising that he'll play in Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and if he does, he's unlikely to limit his number of snaps. Green did position-specific drills Wednesday and ran some routes, and he didn't favor his right big toe. However, he has been told to expect to play through some level of pain for the rest of the season. Green said trainers may tape up his foot a bit, but he isn't planning on wearing different shoes or wearing inserts for cushioning.

    Huddle Up: We won't know if Green is going to play until probably Sunday. If he's active, owners should obviously have Green in their lineup. It's likely going to come down to an hour before kickoff before we know Green's Week 9 status for certain.

  • Jamaal Charles - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 10/29/14 9:20pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (back) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

    Huddle Up: Charles will start against the Jets and while New York has a strong rush defense, Charles is still a Top 3 fantasy back this week.

  • Pierre Thomas - RB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 10/29/14 6:45pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 29, and has been ruled out for Week 9.

    Huddle Up: As expected, Thomas will miss a second straight game, leaving the Thursday-night RB load to Mark Ingram, Travaris Cadet and, possibly, Khiry Robinson.

  • Ryan Mathews - RB - San Diego Chargers
    Posted 10/29/14 6:45pm ET

    San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

    Huddle Up: Even the extra days of rest don't look like they're going to help Mathews avoid a seventh straight missed game, barring a rapid reversal of fortune over the next few days. Meanwhile, Donald Brown was back Wednesday as a full-practice participant and looks to be on track to play in Week 9 after a three-game concussion absence. In any case, Branden Oliver figures to remain the starter Sunday and receive the majority of touches.

  • Robert Griffin III - QB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/29/14 6:38pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III is expected to start in the team's Week 9 game against the Minnesota Vikings, according to league sources. Griffin practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 29, and split first-team repetitions with QB Colt McCoy. Head coach Jay Gruden said Griffin's situation is now more mental than physical. 'We'll see it's all going to depend on how he does in tomorrow and Friday,' Gruden said. 'And moving forward, how I feel he's coming back. From a physical standpoint he looks good, now it's a matter of mental and getting back into the football part of it. If he looks good in that regard then there's a chance he could play and if not and he needs another week, he'll take another week.'

    Huddle Up: With Washington on bye in Week 10, the thinking has been that RGIII would likely sit this coming Sunday to give him an extra 2 weeks of recovery time, but he appears to be further along that most have thought. Let's see, though, how the rest of the week plays out.

  • Ronnie Hillman - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/29/14 6:38pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman said his shoulder feels fine and he doesn't think it will limit him. According to beat reporters, the RB "landed funny" on his shoulder during workouts Wednesday and appeared to be somewhat limited afterward.

    Huddle Up: It doesn't sound like anything to get too worked up about, but it's definitely something to keep tabs on the rest of week with the RB, who has totaled 357 yards from scrimmage and 2 TDs over his last 3 games.

  • Robert Griffin III - QB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/29/14 4:21pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

    Huddle Up: This was the QB's first full practice since dislocating the ankle in Week 2, and it's going to make for an interesting rest of the week to see who gets the starting call Sunday in Minneapolis. Of course, you'll have no choice but to stay tuned.

  • Doug Martin - RB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 10/29/14 4:21pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) was in a walking boot and is not participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

    Huddle Up: It's early, but it very well could be Bobby Rainey and rookie Charles Sims handling the Bucs' RB chores Sunday in Cleveland. See, though, if Martin is able to get on the practice field over the next 2 days.

  • Cordarrelle Patterson - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 10/29/14 4:21pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson (foot) is expected to practice all week, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

    Huddle Up: Patterson caused a scare when he was seen wearing a walking boot earlier this week, but he'll be good to a go this weekend in a favorable matchup against the Washington secondary.

  • Justin Forsett - RB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 10/29/14 4:21pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett (leg/ankle) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

    Huddle Up: Not a huge concern given this is only the first practice of the week, but it's definitely something to monitor over the coming days.

  • Darren Sproles - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 10/29/14 2:38pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

    Huddle Up: Sproles has said he expects to play this Sunday in Houston after missing the Week 9 loss to the Cards. If so, we should continue to see positive practice reports the rest of the week.

  • Owen Daniels - TE - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 10/29/14 2:38pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels (knee) is participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

    Huddle Up: Daniels sat out Week 9 after undergoing a knee "clean-up" procedure last week so monitor his progress throughout the week.

  • Justin Durant - LB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 10/29/14 2:33pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys LB Justin Durant (torn biceps) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Oct. 29.

    Huddle Up: Tough blow for Durant's IDP owners and the Cowboys, who have lost their leading tackler for the rest of the season. 2012 fourth-round pick Kyle Wilber is the next man up on the depth chart, but the team also signed veteran Tim Dobbins on Wednesday.

  • Vontaze Burfict - LB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 10/29/14 2:33pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (knee) underwent surgery Wednesday, Oct. 29, to remove a piece of cartilage that would have done more damage to his knee if not treated. Burfict likely will miss at least the team's next two games.

    Huddle Up: It's been one hit after another this season for the 2013 league leader in tackles, who has already missed 2 full games and has been unable to finish 3 others because of head and neck injuries.

  • A.J. Green - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 10/29/14 2:33pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

    Huddle Up: Good initial indicator that Green will likely return this Sunday after missing the last 3 games.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 10/29/14 2:33pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

    Huddle Up: Bernard is definitely banged up, but it's only the first practice of the week so certainly see how Thursday and Friday go.

  • Jordan Cameron - TE - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/29/14 2:33pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (concussion) will not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29, because he is still going through the concussion protocol.

    Huddle Up: No surprise here as Cameron appears likely to miss at least one game and possibly the Week 10 contest as well with the Browns having a short turnaround next week playing on Thursday night.
