Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Mike Tolbert - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/17/17 3:47pm ET

    Buffalo Bills RB Mike Tolbert carries three times for five yards and he added a reception for two yards in Week 2 at Carolina against his former team.

    Huddle Up: Tolbert still saw just four total touches to 18 for LeSean McCoy, and he isn't about to scoot up the depth chart anytime soon. His fantasy value remains rather negligible. Still, it's interesting to note he is number two, and will be the player to target should an injury force Shady out of action.

  • Charles Clay - TE - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/17/17 3:46pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay managed three catches for 23 yards on three targets in Week 2 in Carolina.

    Huddle Up: Clay should be treated mostly as a TE2 in fantasy leagues, especially until Tyrod Taylor starts to show more consistency. Clay and the Bills offense face another tough matchup with Denver visiting in Week 3.

  • Zay Jones - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/17/17 3:46pm ET

    Buffalo Bills rookie WR Zay Jones hauled in two receptions for 18 yards and he was targeted six times in Week 2 at Carolina.

    Huddle Up: On the final play of the game, Jones had a chance to catch a game-winning touchdown but he hauled in the ball. He has a lot of potential, but so far he hasn't shown he can be trusted on a weekly basis in most fantasy formats. Week 3 will be another tough outing against the visiting Broncos.

  • Jordan Matthews - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/17/17 3:45pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews posted three receptions for 30 yards on his three targets in Week 2 at Carolina.

    Huddle Up: Matthews saw half of the targets that rookie Zay Jones did, although no one on the Buffalo offense really had a standout day. It will be tough sledding again in Week 3 against the visiting Broncos.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/17/17 3:45pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald caught three passes for 21 yards in a 16-13 win over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, Sept. 17.

    Huddle Up: The question among a lot of people after the game was why didn't Carson Palmer target Fitzgerald more often? This was a deep dropoff for Fitzgerald and definitely disappointed his fantasy owners. You may want to leave Fitzgerald in flex status for the time being, as the Dallas Cowboys are up next in Week 3 on Monday Night Football. See how he does in that game.

  • LeSean McCoy - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/17/17 3:45pm ET

    Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy carried 12 times for just nine yards in Week 2 against the Panthers and he added six receptions for 34 yards.

    Huddle Up: The high number of catches and receiving yardage salvaged the stat line somewhat for those in PPR formats, but Shady's day was a complete disaster for those in standard formats. He'll face another tough defense in Week 3 against the visiting Broncos.

  • Jack Doyle - TE - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/17/17 3:41pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle caught all eight of his passes for 79 yards in a 16-13 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, Sept. 17.

    Huddle Up: The Colts' QB situation makes this a difficult call, but the fact is Doyle put up strong numbers in this game. For now, Doyle remains a decent TE2 option who could improve as the Colts get more solid at the QB spot.

  • Tyrod Taylor - QB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/17/17 3:41pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor completed 17 of his 25 pass attempts for 125 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 2 against the Panthers while running eight times for 55 yards.

    Huddle Up: The Bills were limited to just 176 total yards, as the Panthers defense was on fire for a second straight game. Taylor will look to rebound in Week 3, but he faces another tough defense when the Broncos come calling.

  • JJ Nelson - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/17/17 3:31pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson caught five passes for 120 yards and scored one touchdown Sunday, Sept. 17, in a 16-13 win over the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Nelson had a decent first-week outing against the Detroit Lions and followed up with this strong effort. Nelson remains a WR4 option, but he could climb to a WR3 with a few more contests like this one.

  • Bennie Fowler - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 9/17/17 3:26pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Bennie Fowler (undisclosed) had to leave the game midway through the second quarter Sunday, Sept. 17, against the Dallas Cowboys. Fowler appeared to hit his head on the ground and fell twice as he was running back to the huddle.

    Huddle Up: It hasn't been disclosed yet, but the Broncos are likely looking at concussion protocol for the former Michigan State wideout. Stay tuned for further details.

  • Frank Gore - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/17/17 3:22pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore rushed 14 times for 46 yards Sunday, Sept. 17, in a 16-13 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

    Huddle Up: Gore seems to be stuck in neutral when it comes to carries and yards. Gore remains a decent flex option, but the lack of explosiveness makes it difficult for Indy to mount a respectable running game.

  • Chris Johnson - RB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/17/17 3:15pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson ran 11 times for 44 yards Sunday, Sept. 17, in a 16-13 win over the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: These numbers aren't impressive overall, but keep in mind Johnson was hastily re-signed once Arizona lost David Johnson for at least eight weeks. He needs time to grow back into the role, so keep an eye on Johnson's matchups and how he does before fully committing. Johnson will battle Kerwynn Williams for touches.

  • Antonio Brown - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 9/17/17 3:08pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown caught five passes for 62 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Brown was covered by Xavier Rhodes for most of the game and was not able to post his usual numbers but still had a solid outing for owners. He should have more success against the Chicago Bears next week and will be a No. 1 receiver.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 9/17/17 3:05pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant caught three passes for 91 yards and one touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Bryant was the target of several deep passes during the game and picked up a lot of yards after the catch on his touchdown. He will continue to be a deep threat for the Steelers and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver next week.

  • Jacoby Brissett - QB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/17/17 3:04pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett was 20-for-37 for 216 yards and one interception in a 16-13 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, Sept. 17.

    Huddle Up: Unfortunately, that interception came in overtime and set up Phil Dawson's game-winning field goal for Arizona. Brissett didn't set the world on fire but he was much better than Scott Tolzien last week. For now, give Brissett time to settle in and see how he does.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 9/17/17 3:02pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed for 87 yards on 27 carries against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Bell received a lot more carries this week but was not able to rush for more than 11 yards on any play. He is working his way back after missing the entire preseason and should be a No. 1 running back against the Chicago Bears next week.

  • Carson Palmer - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/17/17 2:59pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer threw for 332 yards on 19-for-36 passing, with one touchdown and one interception, in a 16-13 win over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, Sept. 17.

    Huddle Up: Palmer threw three interceptions against the Detroit Lions but cut that number to one in Week 2. Still, Palmer has 38 incomplete passes in two weeks, and that is the number fantasy owners need to look at. Palmer is a weaker QB2 option at best.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 9/17/17 2:56pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger went 23-for-35 for 243 yards and two touchdowns against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Roethlisberger continued his strong play at home and used multiple receivers during the game. He has struggled on the road over the last few seasons but could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback next week when the Steelers travel to play the Chicago Bears.

  • Stefon Diggs - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/17/17 2:56pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs caught two passes for 27 yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Diggs probably could have had a better statistical day but was held in check by the Steelers. He will continue to be the top receiver for the Vikings and should be a starting option in most leagues in Week 3.

  • Adam Thielen - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/17/17 2:48pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught five passes for 44 yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Thielen's value took a hit with Case Keenum starting this week but still had a decent outing for owners in point-per-reception leagues. Thielen can be considered at least a flex option for owners next week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
