Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Brandon Marshall - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/20/14 3:49pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Marshall is expected to play but will be less than 100 percent against the Jets. However, he was less than 100 percent last week and still caught three touchdowns. Marshall is a WR1 as long as he's in the lineup.

  • Alshon Jeffery - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/20/14 3:49pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Jeffery is expected to play but will be less than 100 percent. He's still a WR1 against a suspect Jets secondary.

  • Darren McFadden - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/20/14 1:43pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden is expected to receive a heavy workload even if RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) is active for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: It's a good news, bad news scenario. It's great that McFadden will get most of the work but he's nothing more than a low-end flex option right now for fantasy owners in the Raiders struggling offense.

  • Vernon Davis - TE - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 9/20/14 1:43pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (ankle, knee) could be a game-time decision for Week 3. Davis said he was encouraged with how he felt after some light running and catching drills Friday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: The 49ers play Arizona in the late game Sunday, so fantasy owners will need to have another option ready if Davis can't play. Derek Carrier would get the start in his place with Vance McDonald unlikely to suit up against Arizona.

  • Harry Douglas - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/20/14 10:28am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Harry Douglas (foot) had his MRI come back negative on the injured foot he suffered Thursday, Sept. 18. The team will not update his status until sometime next week.

    Huddle Up: Looks like Douglas may avoid a serious foot injury and has extra time to recover from the Thursday night injury.

  • DeAngelo Williams - RB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/20/14 10:28am ET

    Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (hamstring) is expected to be ready to play in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. His injury had been called a thigh injury, but he said Friday, Sept. 19, that he has been battling a hamstring issue. He took reps with the first-team offense Friday, and appears ready to go barring a setback.

    Huddle Up: Officially a game-time decision, but the signs are positive. DeAngelo is a player you need to track during Sunday morning inactive announcements.

  • Knile Davis - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/20/14 10:28am ET

    Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RBs Jamaal Charles (ankle) and Knile Davis split first-team reps in practice Friday, Sept. 19. Davis was the running back for the first snap of practice, and then Charles took the next two snaps. Officially, Charles was listed as a limited participant. He spent time running some light pass patterns and caugh passes with the rest of the team's receivers and backs.

    Huddle Up: This is a dicey situation given the late afternoon game kickoff. It seems unlikely Charles would bounce back this quickly from what was called a high ankle sprain. And with a solid replacement like Knile Davis, why push him. Hopefully fantasy owners will get some clear signals Sunday morning on whether Davis will be the workhorse or not. In DFS play, Knile's status this week of a good value play is slipping.

  • Josh McCown - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 9/19/14 10:44pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh McCown (thumb) is undergoing a second test on the thumb injury he suffered in Week 3. He is expected to miss several weeks.

    Huddle Up: Mike Glennon will now be the Bucs starter. He showed some flashes last season as a rookie and Glennon does have a couple of weapons at receiver in Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson. However, he's nothing more than a low-end QB2 right now on a struggling Tampa Bay offense.

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/19/14 9:22pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller said earlier this week that he is ready for the lead tailback role in Week 3, and with RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) out, he will get his chance. Miller is averaging a career-best 4.8 yards per carry through the first two games.'I'm looking forward to it,' Miller said. 'Every running back wants the ball in their hands.'

    Huddle Up: Miller finally gets his chance to be Miami's lead back and the Dolphins have very little depth behind him until Moreno returns. Miller is a RB2/ flex play for Week 3.

  • Bernard Pierce - RB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 9/19/14 9:22pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce (thigh) practiced in full despite being listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns. Pierce should play in the game.

    Huddle Up: Pierce is expected to play but might not be 100 percent. He's nothing more than a flex play this week if he's in the lineup, especially with Justin Forsett around to steal touches if Pierce isn't at full health.

  • Maurice Jones-Drew - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/19/14 9:22pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew (calf) is questionable for Week 3 against the New England Patriots, but it sounds as though he'll play.

    Huddle Up: We probably won't know Jones-Drew's status until Sunday but either way he's a risky start. Look elsewhere for a starting running back until MJD shows something.

  • Kyle Rudolph - TE - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/19/14 6:01pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (abdomen) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 19, and is questionable for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Rudolph, tied for the team lead in targets (12) and receptions (7), should be able to play, but his fantasy owners are going to need to double check his status Sunday morning to make sure.

  • Robert Woods - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/19/14 6:01pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Robert Woods (ankle) is listed as probable, and he'll be available for Week 3 against the San Diego Chargers.

    Huddle Up: Woods, the Bills' second-leading receiver, has shown late-week improvement and will be available for starting consideration in deeper leagues.

  • Chris Johnson - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 9/19/14 5:54pm ET

    New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (ankle) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: Johnson was limited all week but still should play Monday, but the bigger concern for his fantasy owners has to be the higher level of production shown by backfield mate Chris Ivory.

  • Arian Foster - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 9/19/14 5:54pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) was limited in practice again Friday, Sept. 19, and he is questionable for Week 3 against the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: There's been nothing to suggest that Foster is any real danger of missing the game, but beware that his heavy workload -- a league-high 55 rushes through the first 2 games -- might already be taking a toll on the RB.

  • Cecil Shorts - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/19/14 5:54pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WRs Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and Allen Hurns (ankle) are both listed as probable for Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts. It will be Shorts' season debut after missing the preseason with a right hamstring injury. 'I think that we'll see how he feels but it went pretty good out there,' head coach Gus Bradley said. 'If everything goes good and we get the report (that he hasn't had a setback), then he'll start.'

    Huddle Up: The Jags needed this turn of good news with fellow WR Marqise Lee and TE Marcedes Lewis already out for Sunday's game, but neither Shorts or Hurns are worthy of a high fantasy ranking this week given their lingering injury concerns and the overall lack of production for the Jags' offense so far.

  • Drew Stanton - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/19/14 5:54pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton will be the starting quarterback in the team's Week 3 game, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

    Huddle Up: There was some hope for a Carson Palmer comeback but that's on hold for another week. In the meantime, Michael Floyd's fantasy owners are hoping for a better fantasy connection between the QB and WR this Sunday as Floyd only had 1 catch for 19 yards in the Week 2 win over the Giants.

  • Josh Gordon - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/19/14 4:02pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's suspension has officially been reduced from 16 games to 10 games, according to the NFL and NFL Players Association.Gordon avoided an additional two-game suspension by pleading guilty to a driving while intoxicated charge in Raleigh, N.C., Tuesday, Sept. 16. Gordon's guilty plea will not be disciplined under the new drug policy.

    Huddle Up: At last, confirmation here following some scattershot reports -- unless, of course, Gordon manages to find more trouble in the meantime.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/19/14 3:32pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 19, and is listed as probable for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: The first-round pick will try to bounce back from a down Week 2 in which he caught only 2 of his 8 targets for 46 yards

  • Keenan Allen - WR - San Diego Chargers
    Posted 9/19/14 3:32pm ET

    San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (groin) was in full gear during the portion of practice open to the media Friday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: Good sign after the WR added to the injury report Thursday. Stay on top of the situation, however, throughout the weekend.
