Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Kyle Rudolph - TE - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/17/17 2:34pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph caught four passes for 45 yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Rudolph was a reliable target for Case Keenum during game but probably would have had a better day if Sam Bradford played. Rudolph can be a No. 1 tight end against certain opponents, but his value will drop if Keenum starts.

  • Rob Kelley - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/17/17 2:34pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ribs) was hurt midway through the second quarter of his team's game Sunday, Sept. 17, against the Los Angeles Rams. Kelley walked to the sidelines under his own power and went to the locker room for further examination. Kelley has a rib injury and is questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Should Kelley have to miss any time, it could put an already weak Redskins running game into further turmoil. He had 78 yards on 12 carries against the Rams defense. Stay tuned for further updates.

  • Dalvin Cook - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/17/17 2:29pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook rushed for 64 yards on 12 carries against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Cook received a majority of the carries again this week and that should continue moving forward. He will be facing a solid Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense next week but could still be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues.

  • Alex Smith - QB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/17/17 2:21pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith was 21-for-28 for 251 yards and scored one touchdown in a 27-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Sept. 17.

    Huddle Up: The one touchdown happened to be a go-ahead score to Travis Kelce. Smith only missed on seven of his passes, so with an approximate hit rate of 75 percent that constitutes a good day. And the Chiefs are 2-0, which is even bigger. Smith's first two starts help him maintain status as a QB1 option.

  • Case Keenum - QB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/17/17 2:19pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum went 20-for-37 for 167 yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Keenum was the starter because Sam Bradford is dealing with a knee injury and could start Week 3 if Bradford is not able to play. Keenum should not be an option in any fantasy league and will hurt the value of Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen and Kyle Rudolph if he starts again.

  • Alshon Jeffery - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/17/17 2:16pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery caught seven passes for 92 yards and scored a touchdown in a 27-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, Sept. 17.

    Huddle Up: This is a big step forward for Jeffery, especially against a solid Chiefs defense. Still, one good outing does not make a season. Jeffery has had issues staying healthy, and he truly needs to post back-to-back good games to impress fantasy owners. Next week's home game against the New York Giants, an easier opponent, should go a ways toward determining Jeffery's status.

  • Zach Ertz - TE - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/17/17 2:12pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz caught five passes for 97 yards in a 27-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, Sept. 17.

    Huddle Up: It was the second straight outing where Ertz led the receivers for Philadelphia, and not much else needs to be said. Ertz is a TE1 option straight to the bank for fantasy owners.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 9/17/17 2:12pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson caught three passes for 39 yards against the Chicago Bears in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Jackson is expected to be a deep threat for the Bucs this season but was held in check this week. He may only be a flex option in Week 3 since he will be facing the Minnesota Vikings.

  • Travis Kelce - TE - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/17/17 2:07pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught eight passes for 103 yards and scored a go-ahead touchdown on a 15-yard catch as the Chiefs beat the Philadelphia Eagles, 27-20, on Sunday, Sept. 17.

    Huddle Up: Kelce only missed two of his targets, suggesting a solid day for the tight end. He appears to have strong rapport with QB Alex Smith in the Chiefs offense, and that's a big chunk of what you need. Kelce remains a strong TE1 option.

  • Mike Evans - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 9/17/17 2:04pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught seven passes for 93 yards and one touchdown against the Chicago Bears in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Evans entered this season as one of the better receivers in the NFL and did not disappoint in his first game of the season. He should be considered a No. 1 receiver in leagues next week even though he is facing a tough Minnesota Vikings secondary.

  • Jacquizz Rodgers - RB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 9/17/17 1:57pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers rushed for 67 yards and one touchdown on 19 carries against the Chicago Bears in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers will be the starting running back for the Bucs for at least two more games until Doug Martin finishes with his suspension. He will face a solid Minnesota Vikings defense in Week 3 but could be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues.

  • Kareem Hunt - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/17/17 1:55pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt had 13 carries for 81 yards and scored two touchdowns in a 27-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Sept. 17. He also caught all three of his targeted passes for 28 yards.

    Huddle Up: Facing two strong teams out of the starting gate, Hunt has been quite impressive. It has been a solid debut for Hunt, who is gaining status as an RB1 option with each carry. Scoring and yardage leagues will benefit from Hunt's fleet feet.

  • LeGarrette Blount - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/17/17 1:48pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount did not have a single carry during his team's 27-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Sept. 17. It marked the first time since 2012 that Blount has not carried the ball in a game.

    Huddle Up: Needless to say, Blount burned fantasy owners on Sunday. On top of a subpar outing in the first week, it may be time to ask what Blount's role is on this team. Yes, it's only two weeks into the season, but a big deal was made about getting Blount into the offense. For now, leave Blount off of all your fantasy rosters.

  • Greg Olsen - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/17/17 1:45pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) said he suffered a broken foot during the team's Week 2 game.

    Huddle Up: Olsen probably will be a candidate for the Reserve/Injured list depending on his timetable, so owners will need to look for other options at the position. Ed Dickson likely will take over as Carolina's starting tight end but should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

  • Jameis Winston - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 9/17/17 1:39pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston went 18-for-30 for 204 yards and one touchdown against the Chicago Bears in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Winston had a solid performance in his first game of the 2017 season and should post better numbers as the season goes on. He will be facing a tough Minnesota Vikings defense in Week 3 but could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some deeper leagues.

  • Darren Sproles - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/17/17 1:39pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles finished with 78 combined yards in a 27-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, Sept. 17. Sproles had 48 yards rushing on 10 carries and caught two passes for 30 yards.

    Huddle Up: With LeGarrette Blount silenced in Week 2, Sproles picked up the slack and delivered a decent outing. When your quarterback is leading in rushing, however, there's a problem. Sproles remains an RB3 option, but he could move up the ladder if the Eagles straighten out the rushing issues.

  • Kendall Wright - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/17/17 1:36pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Kendall Wright caught seven passes for 69 yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Wright will serve as the No. 1 receiver for the Bears moving forward because of the injuries the team has at the position. He probably will be avoided most of the time but could be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues against certain opponents.

  • Carson Wentz - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/17/17 1:33pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz was 25-for-46 for 333 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in a 27-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, Sept. 17. Wentz also led all rushers with 55 yards on four carries.

    Huddle Up: All in all, chalk up another strong outing for the second-year signal caller, who withstood the potent Kansas City defense to throw up huge numbers. Wentz was a low-end QB1 option heading into this game, but he may have solidified his status a little bit. Week 3 is a home game against the New York Giants, which should be an easier tilt for Wentz.

  • Jordan Howard - RB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/17/17 1:33pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed for seven yards on nine carries against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Howard received the most carries during the game but was not able to produce in the run game. He probably will continue to share snaps with Tarik Cohen moving forward and may only be a flex option next week.

  • Tarik Cohen - RB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/17/17 1:29pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen caught eight passes for 55 yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2. He also rushed for 13 yards on seven carries.

    Huddle Up: Cohen was not as productive as he was in Week 1 but was still a big part of the offense against the Bucs. He should receive a similar workload in Week 3 and could be a flex option in fantasy leagues.
