Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Phillip Dorsett - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 5/3/15 4:29pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett will be the team's kick returner in addition to his role on offense.

    Huddle Up: Strictly as a fantasy WR, the curious pick by Indy -- given the team's other needs -- doesn't have as clear of a path to playing time as his fellow first-round WRs given the abundance of weapons in the Colts' passing game.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 5/3/15 4:29pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham is committed to learning to block since he was traded to the Seahawks, according to offensive line coach Tom Cable.

    Huddle Up: This will be one of the differences between playing offense in the Big Easy and playing in the Pacific Northwest, but we're still banking that the two-time defending NFC champs didn't trade for Graham because of his blocking potential.

  • Darren McFadden - RB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 5/3/15 4:29pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden remains the front-runner to be the lead back in 2015 after Dallas didn't select a running back in the 2015 NFL Draft.

    Huddle Up: It was one of the true surprising fantasy-centric draft developments, and at least for the time being -- or until he comes up injured -- McFadden's stock deserves to be pointed north.

  • Sam Bradford - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 5/3/15 4:08pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford was shopped to both the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tennessee Titans, according to sources, but Eagles coach Chip Kelly has denied the rumors.

    Huddle Up: Shopped or not, it's water under the bridge now, and the onus remains on Bradford to show he can stay healthy and produce in a contract year while guiding what's been one of the league's top offenses since Kelly took the reins in 2013.

  • Duke Johnson - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 5/3/15 4:01pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson will be used separately from RBs Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Browns general manager Ray Farmer compared Johnson to Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard and former Philadelphia Eagles RB Brian Westbrook.

    Huddle Up: At 5-9 and 207 pounds, Johnson fits the change-of-pace mold, and he's also a strong pass-catcher, logging 38 receptions for 421 yards and three TDs this past season at Miami. That said, he could be the second Browns back to own in fantasy apart from whomever wins the starting job.

  • Jay Ajayi - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 5/3/15 4:01pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (knee) may have a potential bone on bone issue that may have contributed to his falling down some teams' draft boards.

    Huddle Up: Ajayi lasted until the fifth round, but now he'll have the chance to show he's healthy, and if he can, he has more than a decent chance of winning the Dolphins' No. 2 RB gig behind Lamar Miller.

  • Philip Rivers - QB - San Diego Chargers
    Posted 5/3/15 4:01pm ET

    San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers was never targeted by the Tennessee Titans, as the Chargers made clear they weren't dealing Rivers from the start.

    Huddle Up: Rivers, who finished as the ninth-ranked QB with 349 fantasy points last season, enters his 10th season as the Bolts' starter but there is some dynasty and keeper league intrigue as this will be the final year of his current San Diego contract. Let's see what develops.

  • Zac Stacy - RB - St. Louis Rams
    Posted 5/2/15 8:17pm ET

    Former St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy has been traded to the New York Jets in exchange for the Jets' 224 overall selection in the 2015 NFL Draft.

    Huddle Up: Stacy went from Rams starter to Tre Mason's backup to asking for a trade after St. Louis spent the 10th overall pick on Todd Gurley. He'll join an equally crowded backfield in New York, where he'll need to carve out carries to regain any fantasy relevance.

  • David Johnson - RB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 5/2/15 12:50am ET

    The Arizona Cardinals selected Northern Iowa RB David Johnson in Round 3 (No. 86 overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft on Friday, May 1.

    Huddle Up: Johnson, who racked up 2,089 yards from scrimmage this past season for the FCS Panthers, was seventh RB drafted but he has as good of a chance as any to see immediate playing time given Andre Ellington's small stature/durability questions and the Cards' overall lack of RB depth.

  • Garrett Grayson - QB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 5/1/15 11:11pm ET

    The New Orleans Saints selected Colorado State QB Garrett Grayson in Round 3 of the NFL Draft (No. 75 overall) Friday, May 1.

    Huddle Up: Grayson, who became the third QB selected, becomes the heir apparent to Drew Brees as the Saints went with the fast-rising Colorado State QB instead of selecting Bryce Petty as rumored. That said, don't expect to hear much of Grayson for another couple of years as the 36-year-old Brees is still going strong.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 5/1/15 11:11pm ET

    The Atlanta Falcons selected University of Indiana RB Tevin Coleman in Round 3 of the 2015 NFL Draft (No. 73 overall) Friday, May 1.

    Huddle Up: The big-play Hoosiers' standout is one third-round pick who should make an immediate fantasy impact as the Falcons parted ways with Steven Jackson this offseason and have 2014 fourth-rounder Devonta Freeman currently holding down the top spot on their depth chart. Coleman, who rushed for 2,036 yards as a junior last season, now becomes the odds-on favorite to open the season as the ATL starter.

  • Jaelen Strong - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 5/1/15 11:11pm ET

    The Houston Texans selected Arizona State WR Jaelen Strong in Round 3 (No. 70 overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft Friday, May 1. The Texans moved up from the No. 82 pick, trading with the New York Jets. The Jets also receive WR DeVier Posey, a fifth-round pick (No. 152 overall) and a seventh-round pick (No. 229 overall).

    Huddle Up: The Texans got the complement to DeAndre Hopkins in the 6-2, 220-pound Strong, who fell to the third round after being projected by many as a possible first-rounder. Should step in immediately as Houston's No. 2 WR.

  • Maxx Williams - TE - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 5/1/15 10:47pm ET

    The Baltimore Ravens selected University of Minnesota TE Maxx Williams in Round 2 (No. 55 overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft on Friday, May 1.

    Huddle Up: Williams was the highest-ranked TE prospect in the draft, and he fell perfectly to the Ravens late in the second round. With Dennis Pitta's future uncertain after a pair of hip surgeries, 2014 third-round pick Crockett Gillmore was listed atop the team's TE depth chart, but the athletic Williams -- who's been compared favorably to ex-Raven Todd Heap -- fills a key need for Joe Flacco and Co.

  • Ameer Abdullah - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 5/1/15 10:47pm ET

    The Detroit Lions selected Nebraska RB Ameer Abdullah in Round 2 (No. 54 overall) in the 2015 NFL Draft on Friday, May 1.

    Huddle Up: The Lions entered the draft needing a RB after parting ways with Reggie Bush this offseason, and Abdullah -- the fourth RB coming off the board overall -- will team with Joique Bell to give Detroit a solid 1-2 rushing punch. At 5-9 and 205 pounds, Abdullah isn't built to shoulder a heavy load, but he's a decent receiver, hauling in 73 passes, including seven scoring receptions, during his four years in Lincoln.

  • Devin Funchess - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 5/1/15 9:08pm ET

    Michigan TE Devin Funchess was selected 41st overall by the Carolina Panthers in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft on Friday, May 1. Funchess will be used exclusively at wide receiver, according to general manager Dave Gettleman.

    Huddle Up: In a very curious move, the Panthers traded up 16 spots to pick TE/WR hybrid, giving them a pair of massive wideouts with the 6-4, 230-pound Funchess and the 6-5, 240-pound Kelvin Benjamin. Funchess, though, lacks speed and route-running expertise, meaning he has a steep NFL learning curve ahead.

  • Dorial Green-Beckham - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 5/1/15 9:08pm ET

    Missouri WR Dorial Green-Beckham was selected 40th overall by the Tennessee Titans in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft Friday, May 1.

    Huddle Up: The Titans, who originally owned the opening (33rd) pick) in the second round, were able to trade back and still snare the talented but troubled Green-Beckham, giving first-round pick Marcus Mariota a serious outside weapon. Throw in Kendall Wright, Justin Hunter and TE Delanie Walker and the Titans suddenly have a better-than-decent corps of pass-catchers.

  • Devin Smith - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 5/1/15 8:06pm ET

    Ohio State WR Devin Smith was selected 37th overall by the New York Jets in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft on Friday, May 1.

    Huddle Up: The Jets continue their two-season upgrade of the their WR corps, adding a deep threat in Smith who averaged a robust 20.7 yards-per-catch in his four seasons with the Buckeyes. He'll now complement Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker to give Geno Smith or Ryan Fitzpatrick a strong stable of wideouts.

  • T.J. Yeldon - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 5/1/15 8:06pm ET

    Alabama RB T.J. Yeldon was selected 36th overall by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft on Friday, May 1.

    Huddle Up: Despite expressing pre-draft confidence in Denard Robinson, the Jags needed a bigger back to handle the the bulk of the RB carries, and they found one in the 225-pound Yeldon, who also possesses solid receiving and blocking skills. The odd-man out now in J'ville looks to be Toby Gerhart, who had a disappointing debut season a year ago with the Jags.

  • Michael Floyd - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 5/1/15 6:29pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd is a player the Cardinals reportedly are willing to discuss in a trade, but no team has contacted them.

    Huddle Up: Thanks largely to the Cards' QB issues last season, Floyd's numbers slipped to 47-841-6, but at age 25, he's attractive as a 6-foot-3, 225-pound wideout just entering the prime of his career. But with Larry Fitzgerald not getting any younger, though, you'd figure the Cards will need to get a deal done tonight and draft a WR or two over the next few rounds.

  • Joseph Randle - RB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 5/1/15 1:28pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle could still face punishment from the league under the terms of personal-conduct policy, even though he will not face formal misdemeanor charges following a domestic disturbance.

    Huddle Up: Randle is definitely a candidate to join new teammate Greg Hardy on the suspension list, and that only increases the chances the Cowboys will draft a RB on Day 2 or 3.
