Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Darnell Dockett - DE - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 9/4/15 1:20pm ET

    The San Francisco 49ers released DT Darnell Dockett on Friday, Sept. 4.

    Huddle Up: A bit of a shocker from the outside as the ex-Arizona Cardinal was one of the Niners' big free-agent signings in the face of the myriad personnel losses they suffered during the offseason. Dockett, 34, sat out the 2014 season in Arizona after suffering a preseason ACL tear and sustained a rib injury in the team's third preseason game Aug. 29. Dockett's release, though, will clear room for first-round pick Arik Armstead to see more playing time.

  • Jay Ajayi - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/4/15 10:01am ET

    Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (rib) suffered a cracked rib in the final preseason game Thursday, Sept. 3. The team isn't overly concerned. Ajayi ran nine times for 66 yards and caught two passes for 37 yards in the game before the injury.

    Huddle Up: Ajayi's draft stock took a hit due to knee issues, and now he'll be slowed by a cracked rib. Doesn't sound as if he'll be threatening Lamar Miller's workload any time soon.

  • Kenny Bell - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 9/4/15 10:01am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Kenny Bell (hamstring) is a candidate to be placed on Injured Reserve due to a hamstring injury.

    Huddle Up: The Bucs were hoping Bell could crack their receiver rotation right away, but with the injury any fantasy impact he might have will be delayed.

  • Dwayne Bowe - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/4/15 10:01am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Dwayne Bowe won't be cut, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Bowe played nearly the entire first half in the final preseason game Thursday, Sept. 3, and caught one pass. 'He needed to play,' Pettine explained of Bowe's lengthy play time. 'There's no substitute for live game reps. He'd taken so few snaps during training camp, now here we are on the brink of the season and want to make sure that he is as close to game shape as possible, and that's impossible to do when you're inactive.'

    Huddle Up: Fantasy owners have bailed on Bowe over the past couple of seasons, and there has been no evidence in Cleveland to suggest it's worth getting back on the Dwayne train.

  • Montee Ball - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 9/4/15 10:01am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball rushed 16 times for 27 yards in the final preseason game Thursday, Sept. 3. RB Kapri Bibbs tallied 27 yards on six rushes.

    Huddle Up: So much for Montee's audition. There's a very real chance he'll be released by the Broncos; then he can join Trent Richardson in competition for backup jobs.

  • DeVante Parker - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/4/15 10:01am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (foot) caught one pass on three targets for 11 yards against the Tampa Bay in his preseason debut Thursday, Sept. 3.

    Huddle Up: At least Parker is back on the field. The Dolphins have indicated he was impressive enough in early preseason work to earn playing time once the games start to count, but his specific role in Miami's receiver rotation remains to be seen.

  • Marlon Brown - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 9/4/15 10:01am ET

    Baltimore Ravens WR Marlon Brown caught three passes for 64 yards in a 20-19 preseason loss to Atlanta Falcons Thursday, Sept. 3.

    Huddle Up: With Breshad Perriman still battling knee issues, Brown could see significant time in the receiver spot opposite Steve Smith.

  • Brett Hundley - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/4/15 10:01am ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Brett Hundley completed 16 of his 23 pass attempts for 236 and four touchdowns in a 38-10 preseason win over the New Orleans Saints on Thursday, Sept. 3.

    Huddle Up: Looks like the Packers have themselves another quality quarterback they can develop and turn into high draft picks--or at least a guy they can count on if something happens to Aaron Rodgers.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/4/15 10:01am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman had eight rushes for 56 yards in a 20-19 preseason victory against the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, Sept. 3.

    Huddle Up: Devonta Freeman has been named the starter, but Coleman's preseason debut reminds fantasy owners of his explosiveness--and demonstrate that it won't be long before he takes the lead in the Falcons' backfield committee.

  • Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/4/15 10:01am ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota finished 2-of-3 for 74 yards and a touchdown in his only series against the Minnesota Vikings in the preseason Thursday, Sept. 3.

    Huddle Up: Tennessee's top draft pick got in some work against Minnesota's backups and did what he was supposed to do. He also escaped without injury, so that makes the evening a success for the Titans.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/3/15 11:09pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (hamstring) did not dress for the team's preseason finale Thursday, Sept. 3.

    Huddle Up: Meanwhile, rookie third-rounder Tevin Coleman did and rushed for 56 yards on eight carries, with a long gain of 26, and looks to be in line to open the season as the Falcons' starter.

  • Jason Pierre-Paul - DE - New York Giants
    Posted 9/3/15 11:09pm ET

    New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul (hand) plans to report to the team next week and expects to be able to play at some point early in the season, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Thats sounds optimistic given the Giants haven't even been able to examine the defensive end's injured right hand since his infamous Fourth of July weekend fireworks accident which resulted in the amputation of his right index finger. There's obviously much to still be determined here.

  • T.J. Ward - S - Denver Broncos
    Posted 9/3/15 11:09pm ET

    Denver Broncos FS T.J. Ward has been suspended for the regular season opener for violating the league's conduct policy, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: IDP alert as the play-making Ward -- who had 76 tackles, two interceptions and a pair of interceptions last season in his Denver debut -- will sit out against the Ravens, leaving David Bruton to start at strong safety in his stead.

  • Jay Ajayi - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/3/15 10:52pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (chest) suffered a chest injury in a preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday, Sept. 3, and is questionable to return.

  • Zach Ertz - TE - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/3/15 10:52pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (groin) is unsure about his Week 1 status after missing most of the preseason and could be limited to passing downs and two-tight end sets when he returns from injury.

    Huddle Up: Ertz was projected as a TE1 in most rankings this summer, but between the injury and his lack of improvement, it looks like old standby Brent Celek is the Philly tight end you want to own.

  • Dan Herron - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/3/15 10:52pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron (shoulder) and RB Vick Ballard (hamstring) suffered injuries in the final preseason game Thursday, Sept. 3, and did not return to the game.

    Huddle Up: Rookie Josh Robinson also missed the contest with a concussion, leaving the Indy backup RB situation in a bit of limbo. It's a situation to monitor closely if you're looking to handcuff Frank Gore.

  • Dwayne Bowe - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/3/15 10:52pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Dwayne Bowe got the start in the final preseason game Thursday, Sept. 3, with backups. Bowe is supposedly fighting for a roster spot.

    Huddle Up: Bowe, who caught one of his two targets for 8 yards Thursday night, was supposed to quickly establish himself as the WR-needy Browns' No. 1 WR, but he's done anything but, missing the first three exhibitions with a hamstring injury and then underwhelming in Thursday's finale largely playing against backups. He could be one of the big names set loose on cut-down day.

  • DeVante Parker - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/3/15 5:51pm ET

    Miami Dolphins rookie WR DeVante Parker (foot) was on the field and looked ready to play Thursday, Sept. 3. Parker missed all of training camp recovering from foot surgery.

    Huddle Up: Seeing the first-round pick actually on the field this preseason would certainly be a shocker, but it seems too good to be true. It does emphasize, however, that Parker's debut will definitely be sooner rather than later.

  • Dustin Hopkins - PK - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 9/3/15 5:51pm ET

    New Orleans Saints PKs Zach Hocker and Dustin Hopkins have kicked well during practice and the preseason games and remain in a close competition for the kicker job. Head coach Sean Payton said the final preseason game will be important for both players.

    Huddle Up: Just in case you're looking to add the usually-n-demand Big Easy kicker.

  • Stevan Ridley - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 9/3/15 5:51pm ET

    New York Jets RB Stevan Ridley (knee) is expected to be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list. This would disable Ridley for the first six weeks of the regular season.

    Huddle Up: Ridley's return is a slow but steady process after his knee injury last season. Meanwhile, it only solidifies Chris Ivory's hold on the No. 1 job, with Billal Powell and ex-Ram Zac Stacy serving as the primary backups.
