Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Matt Breida - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 10/13/18 1:39pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) was limited in practice Saturday, Oct. 13, and will be a game-time decision for the Week 6 game against the Green Bay Packers on Monday, Oct. 15. If he is unable to play, a practice squad back will be elevated.

    Huddle Up: Breida is a risky fantasy play since he is not quite 100 percent and he doesn't play until Monday night. Alfred Morris would shoulder the load again if Breida is unable to go.

  • Trent Taylor - WR - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 10/13/18 12:32pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Trent Taylor (back) has been ruled out for the Week 6 game against the Green Bay Packers on Monday, Oct. 15.

    Huddle Up: With Taylor on the sidelines it will mean more chances for Victor Bolden and Richie James. Neither is particularly attractive from a fantasy perspective, however.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 10/13/18 11:49am ET

    Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham (knee) fully participated in practice Saturday, Oct. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 6. The Packers did not hold a practice Saturday, so his practice participation is an estimation.

    Huddle Up: Graham has been targeted at least seven times in three of the last four games but has posted over 50 yards in only two games this season. He can still be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in most leagues this week.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 10/13/18 11:46am ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (knee) fully participated in practice Saturday, Oct. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 6. The Packers did not hold a practice Saturday, so his practice participation is an estimation.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers is coming off a terrific Week 5 performance where he threw for 442 yards and three touchdowns. He should have a favorable matchup this week and can be a No. 1 quarterback in all leagues.

  • Randall Cobb - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 10/13/18 11:43am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (hamstring) was limited during practice Saturday, Oct. 13, and is listed as questionable for Week 6. The Packers did not hold a practice Saturday, so his practice participation is an estimation.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check the inactive list before the game to see if Cobb will be able to play. He is a risky option because the team plays on Monday Night Football, so owners could consider benching Cobb if they have better options available. He probably would be a No. 3 fantasy receiver if he is able to play.

  • Geronimo Allison - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 10/13/18 11:42am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison (hamstring) was limited during practice Saturday, Oct. 13, and is listed as questionable for Week 6. The Packers did not hold a practice Saturday, so his practice participation is an estimation.

    Huddle Up: Allison will be a game-time decision this week, so owners will need to check the inactive list. He is a risky option because the team plays on Monday Night Football, so owners may want to use healthier options for their lineup and bench Allison.

  • Cooper Kupp - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 10/13/18 9:34am ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (concussion) has been cleared to play in the team's Week 6 game.

    Huddle Up: Kupp has posted at least 70 yards in each of the last three games and has four touchdowns during that span. He can be a solid low-end No. 1 or No. 2 fantasy receiver for owners this week.

  • Brandin Cooks - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 10/13/18 9:33am ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks (concussion) has been cleared to play in the team's Week 6 game.

    Huddle Up: Cooks ranks seventh in the NFL with his 452 yards and should continue to be the main target in the Rams passing game. He should be considered a No. 1 fantasy receiver this week against the Denver Broncos.

  • Geronimo Allison - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 10/13/18 9:23am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison (hamstring) will be a game-time decision for the Week 6 game, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

    Huddle Up: Allison's availability likely will not be known until the inactive list is posted, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. Owners may want to consider other options this week because the Packers play on Monday Night Football, and there would be limited options available if Allison is ruled out.

  • Randall Cobb - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 10/13/18 9:22am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (hamstring) will be a game-time decision for the Week 6 game.

    Huddle Up: Cobb has missed the last several weeks because of his injury but has a chance to play this week. Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if he is active. He is a risky option since the Packers play on Monday Night Football, so owners could consider benching him if they have more reliable options available.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 10/13/18 8:29am ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Martavis Bryant (illness) was added to the injury report Saturday, Oct. 13, because of an illness. He is considered questionable for Week 6's game against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Bryant has 12 receptions through four games and is still looking for his first touchdown of the year despite racking up a season-high 91 yards versus the Chargers in Week 5. If he is active this week, he's worthy of consideration as a flex option in deeper fantasy leagues.

  • Ryan Tannehill - QB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 10/13/18 6:22am ET

    Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 6's game against the Chicago Bears due to a right shoulder injury.

    Huddle Up: Tannehill logged two full practice sessions earlier in the week before participating on a limited basis in practice Friday, Oct. 12. It is uncertain what caused his injury status to be downgraded, although Tannehill has reportedly been bothered by some pain in his throwing shoulder since Week 4's game against the New England Patriots. He has a less-than-favorable matchup versus the Bears and should be avoided in most fantasy formats unless you're desperate for a bye week replacement.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 10/12/18 11:21pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) has been bothered by an elbow injury since the opener and won't throw at all during the team's upcoming bye week, according to offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner.

    Huddle Up: There's no indication Big Ben is in danger of missing time, and this seems to be primarily a maintenance move. Still, it's something to file away going forward. For now, he's a low-end QB1.

  • Kenny Golladay - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 10/12/18 8:20pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay is on pace for 86 catches and 1,370 receiving yards, and Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press believes he should 'at least' manage 75 catches for 1,100 yards and eight touchdowns.

    Huddle Up: Golladay has emerged as Detroit's most consistent receiver after the first five games, and he has become a weekly WR3 option with an even higher ceiling.

  • Derek Carr - QB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 10/12/18 7:01pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr said there is a 'fine line' between making aggressive throws and playing it safe, and he believes his decision making will improve as he continues to learn head coach Jon Gruden's offensive system.

    Huddle Up: Carr has put up some strong yardage totals this year, but he has seven touchdowns compared to eight interceptions and has had multiple turnovers in three of the five games. Until he starts taking care of the ball, he is going to be in the QB2 range.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 10/12/18 6:53pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson said 'there's no reason to panic' or change the approach despite the 1-4 start to the season. 'You just gotta continue on that grind, continue to put in the time and effort, stay positive, stay focused and just keep it week by week,' Nelson said.

    Huddle Up: Nelson has scored in three straight games after a slow start, putting him in the mix as a flex option against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 6.

  • Amari Cooper - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 10/12/18 6:29pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper needs to be featured more, according to quarterback Derek Carr, but Carr said he won't throw at Cooper just to reach a certain number of targets.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has topped 100 yards in two of the five games this year but has been held under 20 yards in the other three. He's a boom-or-bust WR3 against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 6.

  • Pierre Garcon - WR - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 10/12/18 6:19pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (shoulder, knee) should be available for the Week 6 game against the Green Bay Packers, according to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.

    Huddle Up: Garcon has seen 19 targets over the last two games, but they have resulted in just nine catches for 99 yards. He is the closest thing the 49ers have to a go-to receiver, but he doesn't need to be a fantasy starter.

  • Marquise Goodwin - WR - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 10/12/18 5:19pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin (hamstring, quadriceps) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Goodwin appears to be on track to play in Week 6 and could receive a good amount of targets if some of the other receivers are unable to play. Goodwin may be a flex option in some leagues this week.

  • George Kittle - TE - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 10/12/18 5:14pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Kittle has been targeted at least seven times in four of the five games this season and has recorded at least 79 yards in each of those games. He should be a No. 1 fantasy tight end in most leagues if he is active this week.
