Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • DeSean Jackson - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 12/12/18 11:16am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder, concussion) is not practicing Wednesday, Sept. 12.

    Huddle Up: Jackson went off in Week 1 in what will probably be his best outing of the year. Look for Chris Godwin to eventually supplant Jackson behind Mike Evans. The Bucs face a tough test in the Philadelphia Eagles, but Godwin is worth a look as a flex if Jackson sits.

  • Carson Wentz - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 12/12/18 7:58am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz's (back) status for Week 15 is up in the air due to a back injury. Head coach Doug Pederson said the focus was on today and Wentz getting better.

    Huddle Up: You can read between the lines here that Wentz is questionable this week. Keep tabs on him in the practice reports.

  • Ryan Tannehill - QB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 12/12/18 5:17am ET

    Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (ankle) could be limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 12, as the team will closely monitor his ankle injury heading into Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Tannehill has binged with a couple of three-score games, but history has shown you can't count on that this week against the Minnesota Vikings. He's a QB2 in two-QB leagues.

  • Chad Williams - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 12/11/18 7:17pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Chad Williams (ankle, hamstring) was listed with the first-team offense on the team's depth chart Tuesday, Dec. 11.

    Huddle Up: This is somewhat notable since Williams has missed the last five games and doesn't exactly have the kind of resume that one usually has to keep a job when he is sidelined that long. Larry Fitzgerald remains the only playable Cardinal receiver, but DFS players who may have been hoping to strike gold with J.J. Nelson and Trent Sherfield versus the Atlanta Falcons may have to look elsewhere.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/11/18 7:03pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Kelvin Benjamin is reportedly picking up the offense quickly, but it remains unlikely he will play an extended amount of time in Week 15 versus the Los Angeles Chargers.

    Huddle Up: It's understandable considering he hasn't been with the team two weeks yet. Still, Tyreek Hill will almost certainly be limited in some way, shape or form and the Chiefs may be down to Damien Williams as their starting running back. Despite the presence of Patrick Mahomes, owners should be able to do better than Benjamin in their starting lineups during the fantasy playoffs.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 12/11/18 4:46pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (thumb) had his injured thumb immobilized Tuesday, Dec. 11. He cannot squeeze a football with his injured hand yet but hopes to play again this season.

    Huddle Up: In the meantime, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Adam Humphries will continue to see increased targets. They have a tough matchup this week, though, against the Baltimore Ravens, so lower your expectations.

  • Sam Darnold - QB - New York Jets
    Posted 12/11/18 4:20pm ET

    New York Jets QB Sam Darnold (foot) participated fully in practice Tuesday, Dec. 11.

    Huddle Up: If you made your league's playoffs, you probably didn't get there by starting Darnold. Don't start now.

  • Quincy Enunwa - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 12/11/18 4:17pm ET

    New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (ankle) was not at practice Tuesday, Dec. 11.

    Huddle Up: Enunwa has done next to nothing since the beginning of the season. Now is not the time to take a chance on starting him and hoping he rebounds.

  • Robby Anderson - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 12/11/18 4:14pm ET

    New York Jets WR Robby Anderson (ankle) participated fully in practice Tuesday, Dec. 11.

    Huddle Up: Last week Anderson found the end zone for the first time in six games and saw seven targets for the third time in four games, but he's an inconsistent player who can't be trusted in postseason lineups.

  • Deshaun Watson - QB - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/11/18 4:00pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson (shoulder) was a full practice participant Tuesday, Dec. 11.

    Huddle Up: Watson has been bruised and battered for the entirety of his sophomore campaign but he'll be good to go in a favorable matchup with the New York Jets. He's a QB1 for those still in the fantasy postseason.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/11/18 3:57pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (foot) practiced on a limited basis Tuesday, Dec. 11.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins has been limited in practice practically the entire season. He has produced consistently despite the nagging issue, so there's no reason to remove him from starting lineups, especially in the fantasy playoffs.

  • David Njoku - TE - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 12/11/18 3:18pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (knee) participated fully in practice Tuesday, Dec. 11.

    Huddle Up: Njoku hasn't done much of late, but he's a recommended start on Saturday against a Denver Broncos defense that just yielded 210 yards to San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle.

  • Patrick Mahomes - QB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 12/11/18 2:06pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (wrist) was a full participant in practice Tuesday, Dec. 11.

    Huddle Up: Mahomes is the No. 1 fantasy quarterback this year and should be ranked as such for Week 15 heading into a key divisional battle with the Los Angeles Chargers.

  • Courtland Sutton - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 12/11/18 1:00pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (thigh) was not able to practice Tuesday, Dec. 11.

    Huddle Up: Sutton disappointed last week after taking over the Broncos' No. 1 wide receiver position. If Denzel Ward can't play this week for the Cleveland Browns then Sutton will have a good chance to redeem himself. Put him in starting lineups as a WR3 at worst.

  • Elijah McGuire - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 12/11/18 12:43pm ET

    New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire (ankle) missed practice Tuesday, Dec. 11.

    Huddle Up: McGuire broke out last week to the tune of 93 total yards and a touchdown. New York's backfield is hurting, though, and the upcoming workload is unclear at this point. If Isaiah Crowell is inactive and McGuire is able to play then McGuire must be viewed as a PPR RB2 candidate.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 12/11/18 12:34pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee) will be a game-time decision Thursday, Dec. 11, against the Kansas City Chiefs as he continues to nurse a sprained right knee.

    Huddle Up: Austin Ekeler seems more unlikely to play than Gordon at this juncture. If Gordon ultimately can't go then Justin Jackson would be featured with Detrez Newsome playing behind him. Stay tuned, but have a backup plan ready, like Jackson, if Gordon can't play.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/11/18 11:11am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Kelvin Benjamin expects to play Thursday, Dec. 13, against the Los Angeles Chargers. Benjamin said he's been learning the offense since last week and offensive Eric Bienemy said the offense will be 'all hands on deck.'

    Huddle Up: Benjamin's practice status will be updated later, but it sounds like he'll be making his Chiefs debut. If Sammy Watkins is ruled out then Benjamin may be more involved, but he's still a risky start in the fantasy playoffs.

  • Isaiah Crowell - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 12/11/18 10:34am ET

    New York Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (foot) was not spotted at practice Tuesday, Dec. 11, as he deals with a foot injury.

    Huddle Up: No surprise two days after Crowell was injured in Week 14, and the schedule is working against him this week with the Jets playing Saturday. Let's see if the next few days bring any better news.

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 12/11/18 10:16am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot) will not practice Tuesday, Dec. 11.

    Huddle Up: Watkins has missed the last two games and is likely to miss a third with the Chiefs on a short week and playing Thursday night.

  • Spencer Ware - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 12/11/18 10:11am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (shoulder) will not practice Tuesday, Dec. 11, as he recovers from a shoulder injury.

    Huddle Up: Being a veteran back in the K.C. offense, it's certainly possible Ware will be able to play after sitting out practice on a short week, but his fantasy owners need to have a Plan B at the ready.
