Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Martavis Bryant - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 10/9/15 8:54pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant has practiced only once this week, and QB Michael Vick said he is a little concerned about Bryant's availability for the Week 5 game against the San Diego Chargers.

    Huddle Up: Bryant didn't practice on Thursday or Friday and hasn't been added to the active roster yet. The reason for his absence isn't known but coming off his four-game suspension it looks like there's a chance Bryant won't be ready to play on Sunday. Owners will need to have other options ready.

  • Latavius Murray - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 10/9/15 8:54pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 9, and is listed as probable for the Week 5 game against the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: Murray was dealing with a minor shoulder injury but he was never really in danger of missing Sunday's game. He'll be an RB versus Denver's tough defense.

  • Owen Daniels - TE - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/9/15 8:54pm ET

    Denver Broncos TE Owen Daniels (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 9, and is listed as probable for the Week 5 game against the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: Daniels has a great matchup this week against a Raiders' defense that is by far the worst in the NFL at defending tight ends. He's a low-end TE1 this week.

  • Randall Cobb - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 10/9/15 6:16pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WRs Randall Cobb (shoulder) and James Jones (hamstring) were both limited in practice Friday, Oct. 9, but both are listed as probable for Week 5 against the St. Louis Rams.

    Huddle Up: Cobb and Jones will play after a relatively quiet Week 4 in which they combined for 10 catches and 142 yards, but fellow wideout Davante Adams likely remains out despite his questionable designation.

  • Jeremy Hill - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 10/9/15 6:16pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 9, and is listed as probable for the Week 5 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Hill upped his practice participation Friday after being limited Wednesday and Thursday but will face a Seahawks' defense which has surrendered the second-fewest fantasy points to opposing RBs so far.

  • Brian Hoyer - QB - Houston Texans
    Posted 10/9/15 6:16pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Brian Hoyer will start against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 6, head coach Bill O'Brien announced Friday, Oct. 9. Hoyer went 24-for-31 for 312 yards, two touchdowns and a late interception against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 5 Thursday, Oct. 8, while replacing QB Ryan Mallett.

    Huddle Up: It's now come full circle as Hoyer opened the season as the team's starter. Hoyer also has thrown for 10 more yards and two more TDs than Mallett despite 52 fewer pass attempts, but, most importantly, it matters little to WR DeAndre Hopkins, who is producing a top-10 fantasy season regardless of who's throwing him the ball.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 10/9/15 6:16pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (ribs) will play in Week 5 against the Washington Redskins after missing the last two games.

    Huddle Up: Lost in all the Devonta Freeman hoopla, it was Coleman, the third-round rookie, who opened the season as the Falcons' starter and performed solidly, rushing for 112 yards and a TD oin 29 carries in the first game-plus before injuring his ribs. That said, it's Freeman's gig until announced otherwise, and Coleman figures to be limited to 8-10 touches per game.

  • Crockett Gillmore - TE - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 10/9/15 3:47pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore (calf) has been ruled out for the Week 5 game against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Gillmore will miss a second straight game, meaning more work for rookies Maxx Williams and Nick Boyle, who had four targets apiece but only netted 29 combined yards on five catches in Week 3.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 10/9/15 3:47pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones, who leads the NFL with 38 catches and 478 yards through four games, has been moved around on the field more often this year, making it tough for opposing defenses to keep track of where he is. Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's misdirection offense also helps Jones get open more often. Jones' ability to run different routes from different positions on the field also makes him tougher to defend.

    Huddle Up: Jones had a stunningly quiet outing (4-38) in the Week 4 rout of the Texans, but that likely means he's due for an explosion Sunday against Washington which comes in allowing the 10th most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers.

  • Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TE - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 10/9/15 3:27pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) is doubtful for Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: ASJ, who was injured in Week 2, still hasn't practiced and likely remains a couple weeks away, leaving Brandon Myers as the team's top pass-catching tight end.

  • Julius Thomas - TE - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 10/9/15 3:27pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (hand) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 9, and is questionable for Week 5 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Thomas took some definite strides this week, catching passes and getting in some practice time, but his return to game action likely remains a a week or two away. Double check his Sunday status, though, just to make sure.

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 10/9/15 3:22pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (calf) is likely out for Week 5, but he said he could play in an emergency. Watkins took part in individual drills for the second straight day Friday, Oct. 9, and is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Keep an eye open for a late reversal of fantasy fortune Sunday morning but go ahead and set your lineup with the idea that Watkins will miss a second straight game.

  • Alshon Jeffery - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 10/9/15 3:22pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 5 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Unfortunately for Jeffery owners, the Bears' wideout definitely is on the iffy side of questionable having not practiced all week so prepare to go without him a fourth straight game.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 10/9/15 3:22pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) has been ruled out of the team's Week 5 game Sunday, Oct. 11 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: The disappointing fantasy season for the first-round pick continues as he'll miss a second straight game. Hopefully, Lynch owners also have rookie Thomas Rawls as he'll see the majority of the touches Sunday with Fred Jackson questionable with a high- ankle sprain.

  • Sean Lee - LB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 10/9/15 3:14pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys LB Sean Lee (concussion) has been cleared to play in Week 5 against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Good news for Lee's IDP-league owners and the Cowboys, who will need their leading tackler against the high-powered Patriots.

  • LeSean McCoy - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 10/9/15 3:14pm ET

    Buffalo Bills RBs LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Karlos Williams (concussion) both missed practice again Friday, Oct. 9, and have been ruled out for Week 5 against the Tennessee Titans. Williams is still in the concussion protocol. RB Anthony Dixon is likely to start against the Titans, but RB Dan Herron also will share in the workload. McCoy, meanwhile, said he'll miss three to four weeks with a Grade 2 hamstring strain.

    Huddle Up: As expected here, the Bills will be without their top-two RBs Sunday, leaving Dixon as low-end flex play with upside against the Titans' D.

  • Jordan Reed - TE - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/9/15 3:14pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) will not travel with the team and is out for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Well, Reed's fantasy owners got four starts out of tight end before the health issues cropped up. And it's one of the worst kind with concussion and hamstring problems sidelining Reed for five games last season. Derek Carrier will get the start, but is a deep-league option at best.

  • Andrew Luck - QB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 10/9/15 9:39am ET

    Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is close to returning, and head coach Chuck Pagano said he's supremely confident Luck will return for Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Matt Hasselbeck has more than held down the fort, but it will be nice for Indy--and fantasy owners--to get Luck back in the mix.

  • Arian Foster - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 10/9/15 9:39am ET

    Houston Texans RB Arian Foster had 19 carries for 41 yards and nine catches for 77 yards in a 27-20 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: That's not an overwhelming rushing line for Foster, but the Texans clearly know how to use him out of the backfield. Going forward expect a heavy dose of catches among his 25-plus touches per game, and 100-plus combo yards should be his standard.

  • Frank Gore - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 10/9/15 9:39am ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore had a season high in carries and yards in a 27-20 win over the Houston Texans in Week 5, finishing with 22 carries for 98 yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: The Colts may be slightly less inclined to lean on Gore once Andrew Luck returns, but he demonstrated he's up to the task and should remain a vital cog in the Indy offense.
