Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Fred Jackson - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 11/22/14 9:33pm ET

    Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) is officially listed as questionable for the team's Week 12 game Monday, Nov. 24, but head coach Doug Marrone said he is planning on Jackson playing.

    Huddle Up: Jackson is still less less than 100 percent, going up against a tough rush defense and playing on Monday night. He's a risky flex option this week for fantasy owners with Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon also in the mix for touches.

  • Doug Martin - RB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 11/22/14 9:33pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) took most of the first-team repetitions in practice Friday, Nov. 21.

    Huddle Up: The Bucs running game is a mess right now. Martin has a good matchup against the Bears this week but even if he does get a majority of the touches, he's a dicey flex play at best.

  • Marcel Reece - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 11/22/14 7:26pm ET

    Oakland Raiders FB Marcel Reece earned more carries after his performance in Week 12 Thursday, Nov. 20. Reece rushed for 46 yards during a crucial 17-play, 80-yard drive late in the game. Interim head coach Tony Sparano said he could envision using Reece as the primary running back again.

    Huddle Up: Reece and Latavius Murray have likely passed struggling veterans Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew on the depth chart. Murray ran for 112 yards and two scores on just four carries Thursday but suffered a concussion. Reece has performed well in spot starts in the past. He's a solid waiver wire addition next week.

  • Reggie Bush - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 11/22/14 5:59pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is likely out for Week 12 and is targeting the Thanksgiving Day game Thursday, Nov. 27, to return.

    Huddle Up: Joique Bell will start and is a RB2 this week. Theo Riddick will also see some time as a pass catcher. He'll be an RB3/flex play against the Patriots.

  • Arian Foster - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 11/22/14 5:59pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) is highly unlikely to suit up Sunday, Nov. 23, for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Alfred Blue would make his second straight start against the Bengals if Foster is inactive. Blue will be a RB2 and should see 20+ touches.

  • Pierre Thomas - RB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 11/22/14 5:59pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) was limited in practice Saturday, Nov. 22, and is probable for Monday night's tilt with the Baltimore Ravens.

    Huddle Up: Khiry Robinson is out for the game, so Thomas will be the No. 2 back behind Mark Ingram. Ingram will get the majority of snaps but Thomas will see some time on passing downs. He's a flier flex play in deeper PPR leagues this week.

  • Josh Gordon - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 11/22/14 2:19pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was officially activated from the exempt/commissioner permission list Saturday, Nov. 22. In a subsequent move, the team waived LB Keith Pough.

    Huddle Up: Gordon should obviously be inserted into fantasy lineups this week now that he's been activated. The Browns say they'll monitor his snap count but Gordon will still be on the field enough to make a fantasy impact in his first game back.

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 11/21/14 9:13pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (shoulder, knee) is expected to play in Week 12 unless he suffers a setback prior to the game, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Miller is now dealing with a knee injury but is expected to play on Sunday. However, the Miami/Denver game doesn't kickoff until 4:25 pm ET, so it's not an ideal situation for fantasy owners. Miller will be a RB2 in what should be a high-scoring game if he plays but he's a gamble for owners this week because of the late start. Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams will split touches if Miller is out.

  • Matthew Stafford - QB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 11/21/14 9:13pm ET

    Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford, who is currently on pace to finish with the fewest passing yards in a single season for his career, has struggled on deep-ball connections, especially in the last two weeks with WR Calvin Johnson returning. Stafford has completed only 14 percent of his passes at least 20 yards downfield to Johnson the last two weeks, and he's thrown an interception on deep targets in each of the pair's four full games together. Stafford is also struggling in the face of pressure this year, with his completion percentage under pressure dropping from 42 percent last year to 34 percent in 2014, his lowest since 2010.

    Huddle Up: Stafford was predicted by many to have a huge a season but it's been just the opposite. Despite the addition of Golden Tate and rookie TE Eric Ebron, Stafford has been a fantasy disappointment in 2014. That's not likely to change over the final six weeks.

  • Jonas Gray - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/21/14 6:46pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray was late reporting to the team's facility Friday, Nov. 21 and did not practice . He is listed as probable for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Hey Jonas, it doesn't take long to go from the penthouse to the outhouse in New England. Nothing's official as of right now, but don't be shocked to see the RB pop up on the inactive list Sunday, with Shane Vereen or even newly re-signed LeGarrette Blount in a lead role against the Lions.

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 11/21/14 6:37pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (shoulder, knee) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is listed as questionable for Week 12 against the Denver Broncos. Miller has been nursing a sore shoulder for the last three weeks, but he also recently suffered a knee injury in practice. RBs Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas will likely share the workload if Miller sits out. RB LaMichael James could also be activated for the first time this year.

    Huddle Up: It looks like Miller's owners are facing a dreaded late-afternoon game-time decision Sunday so make plans now.

  • Charles Clay - TE - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 11/21/14 6:37pm ET

    Miami Dolphins TE Charles Clay (knee) did not practice Friday, Nov. 21, and he is doubtful for Week 12 against the Denver Broncos. Clay suffered a setback in practice this week, and he's been nursing a sore right knee since training camp. TE Dion Sims would replace Clay in the starting lineup, with TE Gator Hoskins serving as the backup. Sims has caught nine passes for 124 yards and a touchdown this year.

    Huddle Up: This is shaping up to be Clay's first missed game of the year, and Sims would be a suitable plug-in if your league waiver-wire is completely picked over.

  • Jerick McKinnon - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 11/21/14 6:37pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (back) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is listed as probable.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon should be able to go against the Packers, but his workload is in question, even with backfield mate Matt Asista (concussion) already having been ruled out. That means we should definitely see newly signed Ben Tate get some work.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 11/21/14 6:27pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is listed as probable for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: As always, Lynch will be out there Sunday for what figures to be a physical matchup against the division-leading Cardinals.

  • Arian Foster - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 11/21/14 6:27pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) did not practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is questionable for Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Head coach Bill O'Brien said Foster would be worked out prior to the game Sunday, Nov. 23, to see if he can play.

    Huddle Up: It's an all-too familiar situation for Foster owners after the RB missed the last two days of practice following limited participation Wednesday. Ideally, you also have Alfred Blue ready to swap in, but, if not, get a Plan B lined up.

  • Matt Asiata - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 11/21/14 6:27pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata (concussion) did not participate in practice and has been ruled out for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Fellow RB Jerick McKinnon (back) is listed as probable, and newly signed Ben Tate could get some work as well.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 11/21/14 6:21pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (illness) fully participated in practice, Friday, Nov. 21, and is probable for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Jones was back after a two-day battle with a nasty bug and should be good to go Sunday against the Browns.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 11/21/14 3:08pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) was not participating during the media-access portion of practice Friday, Nov. 21. Fitzgerald was working on the side during that part of practice.

    Huddle Up: It's still shaping up as a late-afternoon game-time decision on Fitz, but it's not looking overly promising with the WR having missed the full week of practice. If he's out, of course expect more targets for Michael Floyd, and the Browns -- John and Jaron.

  • Blake Bortles - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 11/21/14 3:04pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 12, and is listed as probable for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Good news for those who need to roll with the rookie this Sunday in Indy.

  • Chris Long - DE - St. Louis Rams
    Posted 11/21/14 3:04pm ET

    St. Louis Rams DE Chris Long (ankle) likely will not play in Week 12, but the team is not ruling out the possibility, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.

    Huddle Up: IDP-league alert for the Rams' stud DE who has been out of commission since the season opener.
