Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Alshon Jeffery - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 11/17/17 7:42am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (ankle) will be questionable for Week 11, according to head coach Doug Pederson. Pederson said Jeffery's ankle injury has been lingering, but he's optimistic the receiver will play.

    Huddle Up: Three touchdowns the last two weeks have galvanized an otherwise mediocre year for Jeffery. The Dallas Cowboys have been susceptible to opposing receivers the last five weeks, and Jeffery is a low-end WR2 in fantasy.

  • Jordan Reed - TE - Washington Redskins
    Posted 11/17/17 5:28am ET

    Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) said he's day to day but doesn't know if he'll be able to play in Week 11. Reed reinjured his hamstring last week while decelerating, and he feels discomfort whenever he slows down after running.

    Huddle Up: The Redskins have a four-day turnaround after Week 11, which means Reed could very well sit this weekend and have a chance to play Thanksgiving Day. Vernon Davis could be a low-end TE1 after two strong weeks, despite the tough matchup against the New Orleans Saints.

  • Corey Davis - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 11/16/17 11:17pm ET

    Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis had three receptions for 27 yards during the team's 40-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Good news: Davis has been targeted 22 times over the past three games. Bad news: he's turned all that attention into nine catches for 103 yards. He's worth owning going forward, but it'd be a tough call to plug him into your lineup until he actually puts up some decent numbers.

  • Eric Decker - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 11/16/17 11:03pm ET

    Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker grabbed three passes for 37 yards in Week 11 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: This is shaping up to be a bust of a season for Decker, who has only one game with better than 50 yards receiving this year. He has been targeted a measly 12 times over the last month and looks like an afterthought on offense. Steer clear.

  • Delanie Walker - TE - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 11/16/17 10:49pm ET

    Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker had six catches for 92 yards during the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Walker brushed off injuries on a short week to still produce a healthy 92 yards through the air. He's been rock solid of late, averaging six catches and a shade over 72 yards a game over the past four. The only issue for fantasy owners is the fat goose egg in the touchdown column this season. Still, Walker is a steady TE1.

  • Rishard Matthews - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 11/16/17 10:43pm ET

    Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews caught five passes for 113 yards and a touchdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Buoyed by a 75-yard touchdown grab to start the second half, Matthews topped 100 yards for the first time this season. He has quietly been Tennessee's most effective wideout thus far and deserves consideration as a WR3.

  • Derrick Henry - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 11/16/17 10:36pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry logged seven carries for 32 yards as part of the team's Week 11 defeat versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Not much went well for the Titans on Thursday, including the running game. While Henry fared better than backfield mate DeMarco Murray, the second-year pro continues to see uneven opportunities from one week to the next. As long as that continues, Henry is no better than a deep flex option.

  • DeMarco Murray - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 11/16/17 10:22pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray gained 10 yards on eight carries (1.3 YPC) in Week 11 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Murray added 37 yards in the passing game on five receptions.

    Huddle Up: It was another night to forget for Murray in a season that has become increasingly full of them. After leading the AFC in rushing last year, Murray has topped 60 rushing yards in game just once in 2017, and that was all the way back in Week 3. He's done a little more work as a receiver recently -- and is coming off a three-touchdown game -- but his status as a No. 2 fantasy back should be viewed as tenuous.

  • Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 11/16/17 10:07pm ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota completed 22 of 33 passes for 306 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions in the team's 40-17 loss against the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday, Nov. 16. Mariota also ran for a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: While his passing yardage (season-high 306) and two touchdowns were nice, his four interceptions doomed the Titans and compiled some serious negative points for fantasy owners. It was also disappointing to see him run for just five yards after finally looking like a mobile QB again this past Sunday. With 10 days to heal up and a date with the dismal Indianapolis Colts on deck brighter days should be ahead of Mariota.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 11/16/17 9:56pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant was targeted four times, catching two passes for 30 yards against the Tennessee Titans on Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Few teams don't have the option to minimize a player with Bryant's upside, but with Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster on the outside the Steelers are one of them. Minus an injury to one of those two it doesn't seem like Bryant will have much of an on-the-field impact this season.

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 11/16/17 9:37pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster finished with four catches and 47 receiving yards during the team's Week 11 win over the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Coming on the heels of two big games Smith-Schuster faded into the background as Antonio Brown put up huge numbers Thursday night. It's disappointing for Smith-Schuster owners, but those are the realities of the position, and the rookie remains an intriguing WR3 moving forward.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 11/16/17 9:16pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell carried the ball 12 times for 46 yards and caught nine passes (on 11 targets) for 57 yards in Week 11 against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Facing a Titans defense that came in ranked sixth against the run, the Steelers put the game on Big Ben with Roethlisberger throwing 45 passes to Bell's 12 carries. The result was Bell's second-lowest rushing total of the year -- he did have an apparent touchdown overturned on replay -- though he still topped 100 total yards for the fifth time in seven games. He's a strong RB1 week in and week out.

  • Antonio Brown - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 11/16/17 9:02pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown caught 10 passes for 144 yards and three touchdowns during the team's 40-17 victory over the Tennessee Titans on Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: This was the best the Steelers looked offensively all season, and Brown was the centerpiece of their attack. It was Brown's fourth game of at least 10 receptions on the year, and his fifth 100-plus-yard performance (first since Week 6). His touchdowns were the best part as he matched his previous year-to-date total while outclassing the Titans secondary. Brown remains a must-start every week.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 11/16/17 8:59pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 30 of his 45 passes for 299 yards and four touchdowns and rushed once for 10 yards in a 40-17 win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Roethlisberger has been mired in a stretch of mediocrity, and this was the first time he has thrown more than two touchdowns all season and just the fourth time he has thrown zero interceptions. Despite the big performance, he should only be viewed as a streaming option against friendly matchups.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 11/16/17 8:25pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) is making 'really good progress' in his recovery, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers could be back in Week 15, but that's assuming his recovery remains on track and the Packers remain in playoff contention. If he does return, he'd be a risky but intriguing starting option in the fantasy playoffs.

  • Dede Westbrook - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 11/16/17 7:44pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook said his expectation is for a 200-yard receiving game in his NFL debut in Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Give Westbrook credit for having confidence, but he is expected to be eased back into action after having his debut delayed by an injury. The rookie is definitely worth stashing, especially in keeper formats, but he shouldn't be starting in Week 11.

  • Jamaal Williams - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 11/16/17 7:15pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams said he is comfortable being the lead back whenever called upon because he approaches every week with the same work ethic.

    Huddle Up: Williams ended up carrying the ball 20 times last weekend after Ty Montgomery was injured, and with Montgomery looking doubtful for Week 11, Williams should be in line for another heavy workload as the Packers try to protect Brett Hundley. If Montgomery sits, Williams will have RB2 upside against the Baltimore Ravens.

  • Damien Williams - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 11/16/17 6:57pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams will continue to split carries with RB Kenyan Drake, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen.

    Huddle Up: Williams has managed just 33 yards on 16 carries the last two games while Drake has rushed for 151 yards and a touchdown on the same number of carries. Although Williams will remain involved, Drake is the only Miami back worth starting right now.

  • Damien Williams - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 11/16/17 6:49pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake is worthy of more carries, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen, but Christensen said the formula with Drake and RB Damien Williams will not change.

    Huddle Up: Although Drake has been the better runner by a wide margin, both he and Williams have received 16 carries each over the last two games. Splitting carries limits Drake's ceiling, but he has done more than enough with his touches to be considered a flex play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 11.

  • Chris Thompson - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 11/16/17 6:31pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson faces the New Orleans Saints in Week 11, and the Saints have allowed the sixth-most yards to opposing running backs on screen passes. He faces the New York Giants in Week 12, and the Giants have allowed the second-most yards to running backs on screens. Thompson gained 199 yards off screen passes in the first five games compared to 18 yards in the last four.

    Huddle Up: Thompson has cooled off following a hot start, and there seems to be a correlation with his lack of production in the screen game. With some solid matchups on the horizon, Thompson should be safe to deploy as a flex option in PPR formats the next two weeks.
