Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Michael Crabtree - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/17/17 7:06pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree finished with six catches for 80 yards and three touchdowns in a 45-20 win over the New York Jets in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Crabtree has reached 80 yards in each of the first two games, and he can be trusted as a WR2 heading into a Week 3 matchup with Washington.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 9/17/17 7:02pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. posted three catches for 24 yards in Week 2 against New England and he was targeted six times.

    Huddle Up: Ginn will get a crack at his former team, the Carolina Panthers, in Week 3. However, he should only be treated as a low-end WR4 or WR5 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Coby Fleener - TE - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 9/17/17 7:02pm ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener gathered three receptions for 33 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Fleener has found the end zone in each of his first two games to re-emerge as a useful fantasy option in most leagues of 12 or more teams. He'll look to keep the streak rolling into Week 3 in Carolina.

  • Brandon Coleman - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 9/17/17 7:01pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Brandon Coleman corralled four balls for 82 yards and a touchdown on six targets in Week 2 against the Patriots.

    Huddle Up: A couple of seasons ago everyone was talking about Coleman as a fantasy sleeper but he struggled early and got lost in the shuffle. Now, Brandin Cooks is gone and Coleman has the chance to be the second option in the high-octane pass offense behind Michael Thomas. He'll need more games like this before he can be trusted by fantasy owners on a regular basis. Remember, Willie Snead is due to return from suspension soon, and Coleman's window could slam shut quickly.

  • Michael Thomas - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 9/17/17 7:00pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas posted five receptions for 89 yards on a game-high 10 targets in Week 2 against the Patriots.

    Huddle Up: With Brandin Cooks now in New England it is Thomas who is the top dog in the New Orleans offense. He should be treated as more of a WR2 heading into Week 3 at Carolina against a defense that hasn't allowed a touchdown through the first two games.

  • Alvin Kamara - RB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 9/17/17 7:00pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed once for three yards in Week 2 against the Patriots while adding three receptions for 51 yards on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: Kamara is behind starter Mark Ingram and veteran Adrian Peterson for touches in the New Orleans backfield, but he has all kinds of promise and is worth stashing away just in case of one of the veterans goes down in front of him.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 9/17/17 6:59pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson carries eight times for just 26 yards in Week 2 against New England.

    Huddle Up: It's strange seeing Peterson in a reserve role, but he has managed a total of 14 touches with 44 rushing yards through two games. It's the 2017 fantasy season and so far Peterson has been a very small part of it after years of domination.

  • Mark Ingram - RB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 9/17/17 6:58pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram rushed eight times for 52 yards in Week 2 against the Patriots while adding four receptions for 24 yards on five targets.

    Huddle Up: Ingram continues to remain at the top of the New Orleans running back totem pole, as he had 12 total touches to eight for Adrian Peterson and four for Alvin Kamara. Nothing is expected to change heading into Week 3 in Carolina.

  • Drew Brees - QB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 9/17/17 6:57pm ET

    New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 27 of his 45 pass attempts for 356 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 2 against the Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Brees is averaging 328.5 passing yards per game with a total of three touchdowns and no interceptions. He could see a decrease in production in Week 3 in his first game outdoors in 2017 when the Saints visit the Panthers. However, he remains an obvious must-start fantasy option whether his team is winning or losing.

  • Brandin Cooks - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/17/17 6:57pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks managed just two receptions for 37 yards on four targets in his return to the New Orleans in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: The performance was rather disappointing considering the fact Tom Brady threw for 447 yards and three touchdowns and Cooks was underneath very little of that. He'll look for better results in Week 3 against the Texans at home.

  • Rex Burkhead - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/17/17 6:56pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead posted three receptions for 41 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Week 2 against New Orleans and he added two runs for three yards.

    Huddle Up: Burkhead has been talked up as a potential fantasy sleeper and this is why. He'll find the end zone on occasion. He'll likely continue to see a handful of targets and red zone opportunities going forward, and might see more responsibilities if Rob Gronkowski is forced to miss time.

  • Phillip Dorsett - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/17/17 6:56pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (knee) posted three receptions for 68 yards in Week 2 against the Saints and he added one run for seven yards before being forced out due to a knee injury.

    Huddle Up: Dorsett had his first meaningful action after being targeted just once with no catches in the opener. He is still learning the system after being acquired just a couple of weeks ago. Hopefully his knee injury isn't significant and he'll be back in there in Week 3 against the Texans.

  • Chris Hogan - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/17/17 6:55pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan posted five receptions for 78 yards and a touchdown on six targets in Week 2 at New Orleans.

    Huddle Up: Hogan certainly made up for his egg laying in Week 1, but a lot of fantasy owners probably went away from him after he managed just eight yards in the opener. The Patriots host the Texans in Week 3.

  • James White - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/17/17 6:54pm ET

    New England Patriots RB James White rushed twice for 11 yards in Week 2 at New Orleans and he added eight receptions for 85 yards on his eight targets.

    Huddle Up: White isn't a bad RB3 in most standard fantasy formats, but he's a tremendous RB2 in PPR formats heading into Week 3 against the visiting Texans.

  • Mike Gillislee - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/17/17 6:54pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee rushed 18 times for 69 yards and a touchdown in the Week 2 game against the Saints.

    Huddle Up: Gillislee has managed four rushing touchdowns through his first two games, basically filling the role of the departed LeGarrette Blount in the New England backfield. He has obviously emerged as a must-start fantasy option across the board heading into Week 3 against the visiting Texans.

  • Tom Brady - QB - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/17/17 6:53pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 30 of his 39 pass attempts for 447 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 1 in New Orleans.

    Huddle Up: Brady was at 300 yards passing at halftime for just the second time in his career. He also joined Warren Moon as the only quarterback in NFL history to throw for more than 400 yards and three touchdowns after his 40th birthday. Reports of TB12's demise have been greatly exaggerated.

  • DeVante Parker - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/17/17 6:53pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker caught four passes on nine targets for 85 yards in a 19-17 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Parker was Jay Cutler's favorite target on the outside in this one, and it could be the start of a big year for Parker. He has enough upside to use as a WR3 against the Jets in Week 3.

  • Jarvis Landry - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/17/17 6:46pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry caught 13 passes on 15 targets for 78 yards in a 19-17 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: While it's only one game, it looks like Landry is going to remain a popular target out of the slot now that Jay Cutler is the quarterback. He should be no worse than a WR3 against the Jets in Week 3.

  • Jay Ajayi - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/17/17 6:39pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi finished with 28 carries for 122 yards and two catches for four yards in a 19-17 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Ajayi picked up where he left off last season, leaving no doubt that he is still the workhorse in Miami's backfield. Lock him in as a RB1 against the Jets in Week 3.

  • Hunter Henry - TE - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/17/17 6:33pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry caught seven passes for 80 yards in a 19-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: After being held without a catch in the opener, Henry flashed his TE1 potential against Miami. Antonio Gates poached a short touchdown, but Henry should do most of the heavy lifting. Consider him a low-end TE1 heading into Week 3.
