Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Terrance West - RB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 9/17/17 4:51pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Terrance West rushed eight times for 22 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Browns while adding two grabs for 23 yards on his two targets.

    Huddle Up: West has been bypassed by Javorius Allen for touches in the Baltimore offense. As such, West is only worth using as a RB3 in deeper fantasy leagues heading into Week 3 against the Jaguars in London.

  • Javorius Allen - RB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 9/17/17 4:51pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Javorius Allen rushed 14 times for a game-high 66 yards in Week 2 against the Browns and he added five receptions for 35 yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Allen has picked up the pace with Danny Woodhead (hamstring) sidelined due to what will be a multi-game injury, showing what he can do. He could do big things in Week 3 against the Jaguars in London, and he is worth a look as a RB3 or flex option in all standard formats, while he has some low-end RB2 use in PPR leagues.

  • Joe Flacco - QB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 9/17/17 4:50pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco completed 25 of his 34 pass attempts for 217 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Week 2 against the Browns.

    Huddle Up: Flacco looked a lot more comfortable in the offense this week after he was a bit rusty in Week 1 after missing time due to a disc issue in his back. He'll look to keep it going in Week 3 against the Jaguars, but keep in mind he has a long flight to London for that game and his back could lock up on the journey. He is a risky play for that one.

  • Sammie Coates - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/17/17 4:49pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Sammie Coates was targeted four times in Week 2 at Baltimore but he was held without a catch.

    Huddle Up: The former Steelers speed burner has the potential to make a splash in the Cleveland offense, as there is plenty of opportunity with a hodgepodge at the position. But for now, Coates is only worth monitoring heading into Week 3 at Indianapolis.

  • Corey Coleman - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/17/17 4:49pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman was targeted seven times in Week 2 at Baltimore but he was able to haul in just one ball for nine yards.

    Huddle Up: Coleman has speed to burn, and he obviously has the eye of rookie QB DeShone Kizer before everyone else. But so far it has been a slow go for the offense. They'll look to break out in Week 3 at Indianapolis and Coleman could be a nice fantasy sleeper as a result.

  • Kenny Britt - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/17/17 4:48pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Kenny Britt posted just one catch for two yards on two targets in Week 2 at Baltimore.

    Huddle Up: Britt made his way back from a knee injury and he was expected to see his normal allotment in the offense. Right now he is an afterthought in the Cleveland offense and not worth using in most fantasy leagues.

  • David Njoku - TE - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/17/17 4:48pm ET

    Cleveland Browns rookie TE David Njoku hauled in three receptions for 27 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 on the road against the Ravens.

    Huddle Up: Njoku has shown a little promise so far in the early going, posting five grabs for 47 yards and a touchdown through two outings. He has a lot of upside, but right now he is simply a player worth just monitoring in most fantasy leagues at this time.

  • Seth DeValve - TE - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/17/17 4:47pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE Seth DeValve posted two receptions for 61 yards on four targets in Week 2 at Baltimore.

    Huddle Up: DeValve shook free for the team's longest offensive play, a 49-yard catch and scamper. However, he is still not the Cleveland tight end to target for fantasy purposes. Rookie David Njoku has far more fantasy appeal and upside.

  • Rashard Higgins - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/17/17 4:47pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins finished with seven receptions for 95 yards on 11 targets in Week 2 at Baltimore.

    Huddle Up: Higgins was given an opportunity and he took full advantage. Could he be this season's Terrelle Pryor, coming out of nowhere and emerging as a fantasy regular on the Cleveland roster? No other Browns receiver seems to have stepped up so far. Monitor Higgins in Week 3 at Indianapolis.

  • Duke Johnson - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/17/17 4:46pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson rushed four times for 21 yards in Week 2 at Baltimore and he added three receptions for 59 yards on six targets.

    Huddle Up: Johnson had the highlight-reel catch of the week with a one-handed Odell Beckham-esque grab in open space, but that was about all Browns fans could be happy about in this one. He totaled 80 yards from scrimmage, however, and he could continue to see added touches if Isaiah Crowell doesn't kick it into gear soon. The Browns travel to Indianapolis in Week 3.

  • Isaiah Crowell - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/17/17 4:46pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell ran 10 times for just 37 yards in Week 2 at Baltimore while he did not have any catches on his only target.

    Huddle Up: Crowell entered the 2017 season with high expectations from fantasy owners, but so far he has been a complete bust. He'll need to do more to hold off Duke Johnson from carving into his touches. It's early, and he has time to atone with a favorable matchup in Week 3 at Indianapolis.

  • DeShone Kizer - QB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/17/17 4:40pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer completed 15 of his 31 pass attempts for 182 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions while also losing a fumble in Week 2 at Baltimore.

    Huddle Up: Kizer left the game in the second quarter due to migraines. After being cleared through the NFL's concussion protocol, he was permitted to return in the third quarter. He said after the game that the headaches are hereditary and he received medication to quell the symptoms. It was an ugly performance, though, and he isn't worth using in most fantasy leagues in Week 3 at Indianapolis.

  • Graham Gano - PK - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/17/17 3:53pm ET

    Carolina Panthers PK Graham Gano converted each of his three field goal attempts (34, 28, 20) in Week 2 against the Buffalo Bills to account for all of the scoring in the 9-3 victory.

    Huddle Up: Gano was the fantasy hero for the Panthers, and might be the most valuable option on the roster through two weeks. He should have another high-scoring game against the visiting Saints in Week 3.

  • Curtis Samuel - WR - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/17/17 3:52pm ET

    Carolina Panthers rookie WR Curtis Samuel posted two grabs for seven yards in Week 2 against the Buffalo Bills

    Huddle Up: Samuel hasn't been much of the plan so far during his early days in Charlotte, but he could see more responsibilities as everyone is asked to do more with Greg Olsen (foot) going down. Still, Samuel is battling Russell Shepard and Damiere Byrd for scraps and is only worth rostering in long-term fantasy formats at this time.

  • Ed Dickson - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/17/17 3:51pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Ed Dickson racked up two receptions for 26 yards on three targets in Week 2 against the visiting Bills.

    Huddle Up: Dickson was called upon to do more after starting TE Greg Olsen went down with what is believed to be a multi-week injury to his foot. Even as the top tight end in Carolina, Dickson is more of a low-end TE2 for fantasy purposes heading into Week 3 against the Saints.

  • Devin Funchess - WR - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/17/17 3:51pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess posted four catches for 68 yards on seven targets in Week 2 against Buffalo.

    Huddle Up: Funchess picked up a little bit of the slack with one of Cam Newton's favorite targets, Greg Olsen, going down to a major foot injury. The receiver out of the University of Michigan should see an uptick in targets going forward. He is worth a look as a WR4 or WR5 in deeper leagues heading into Week 3 against New Orleans.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/17/17 3:50pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin hauled in six receptions for 77 yards in Week 2 against the Bills on his eight targets.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin should see even more heavy lifting in upcoming weeks, especially in the red zone, with Greg Olsen (foot) sidelined for what is believed to be a multi-week injury. Benjamin is a decent WR3 or flex play heading into Week 3 against the defensively challenged Saints.

  • Christian McCaffrey - RB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/17/17 3:49pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushes eight times for just 10 yards in Week 2 against Buffalo while adding four grabs for 34 yards on five targets.

    Huddle Up: McCaffrey might see more work in the passing game in upcoming weeks with Greg Olsen (foot) expected to be sidelined for multiple weeks. McCaffrey is a decent RB3 or flex play in PPR formats, especially in Week 3 against a very giving Saints defense.

  • Jonathan Stewart - RB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/17/17 3:48pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart rushed 15 times for 40 yards in Week 2 against the Bills and he didn't have a reception on just one target.

    Huddle Up: Stewart had 15 touches to 12 for rookie Christian McCaffrey, so J-Stew remains the lead dog in Charlotte - but not by much. He should find plenty of open spaces in Week 3 against the visiting Saints, but treat him as a RB3 or flex play in most formats.

  • Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/17/17 3:48pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 20 of his 32 pass attempts for 228 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 2 against the Bills while posting five runs for 27 yards.

    Huddle Up: Newton was shaken up briefly in the game, as it appears he took an inadvertent knee to the head on one of his rush attempts, but he did not miss any snaps. He is off to a poor start for his fantasy owners so far, as the Carolina offense has totaled just two touchdowns through two games. Things should be a little more wide open in Week 3 against the defensively challenged Saints.
