Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Marqise Lee - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 11/16/17 12:13pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Lee has been on the injury report for the last several weeks but has been able to play. He has become a solid fantasy receiver for owners and can be a No. 3 receiver this week against the Cleveland Browns.

  • Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 11/16/17 11:52am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Fournette appears to be on track to play in Week 11, but owners should keep an eye on the situation. He is a weekly starting option when he is healthy.

  • Josh Gordon - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 11/16/17 11:21am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is slated to begin practicing Monday, Nov. 20, according to head coach Hue Jackson. Jackson added that Gordon is doing all the right things, including showing up for meetings on time, and has been a 'pleasure to be around.'

    Huddle Up: Whether or not Gordon's attitude and focus translate to the field remains to be seen. He's been out of the game since 2014, so the risk involved in starting him right away is obvious. Gordon's upside is clear, but don't start him immediately. Pick him up if he's still on waivers though.

  • Chris Hogan - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/16/17 11:06am ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) missed practice again Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Hogan is not expected to play this week. Rob Gronkowski and Brandin Cooks would be the main beneficiaries in that case, but Danny Amendola (if he plays) and the New England running backs should also be more involved in the passing game. Have a substitute ready for if/when Hogan is ruled out.

  • Ty Montgomery - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 11/16/17 10:50am ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) was not able to practice for a second straight day Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: As is the case with Aaron Jones, Montgomery's prospects won't look good for the weekend if he can't practice tomorrow. Keep tabs on their situation heading into the weekend, but have Jamaal Williams ready to plug into starting lineups.

  • Aaron Jones - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 11/16/17 10:46am ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) did not practice for a second straight day Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: If Jones misses practice tomorrow odds are he won't be taking the field this weekend. That goes for his counterpart Ty Montgomery, too. Jamaal Williams stands to see the majority of touches out the backfield if neither one can go and deserves RB2 consideration.

  • Alex Collins - RB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 11/16/17 10:21am ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Alex Collins will remain the featured back despite the returns of RBs Terrance West and Danny Woodhead.

    Huddle Up: Baltimore's backfield is becoming crowded quickly. Collins may continue to be the lead guy, but he will inevitably surrender touches to his cohorts. That being said, he's a viable RB or flex consideration in a favorable matchup even if those guys return.

  • Damien Williams - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 11/16/17 10:12am ET

    Miami Dolphins RBs Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams will continue to split touches, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen.

    Huddle Up: Drake has earned the lead role in Miami's backfield, but the Dolphins aren't giving it to him yet. Not only is Drake a bigger playmaker, Williams has only averaged 3.1 yards per carry in his career. The former is a solid RB2 play in a great matchup this week. The latter is more of a PPR flex.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 11/16/17 9:51am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) will be limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Jones is still productive, but his one touchdown has limited his appeal after being taken as a stud WR1. He remains a low-end WR1 against the Seattle Seahawks this week.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 11/16/17 9:19am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) won't practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Freeman is likely out this week, and Tevin Coleman has RB1 written all over him against the Seattle Seahawks.

  • Dez Bryant - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 11/16/17 8:59am ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) will practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Bryant has a poor matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles, who are in the top five at defending the position the last five weeks. He's a WR3 in fantasy this week.

  • DeMarco Murray - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 11/16/17 8:28am ET

    Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray will face the best defense against the running back position in fantasy over the last five weeks in the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Outside of last week's three touchdowns, Murray has struggled. He's averaging just 3.01 yards per carry over the last four games. During that stretch, the Steelers are yielding 9.8 fantasy points per game to running backs - as a whole. Murray is still an RB2 in fantasy, but if you're loaded at the position, it's not out of the question to consider someone else.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 11/16/17 8:19am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is the eighth player since 1950 to have 250 or more touches in the first nine games of a season.

    Huddle Up: You likely know the horror stories of running backs' usage rates and the long-term effects, but that's only a factor in dynasty formats. Bell only has five touchdowns this year, and that's what is keeping him from being the top back in fantasy. He has a tough matchup with the Tennessee Titans this week, but he's one of the best assets to have the rest of the way.

  • Ryan Succop - PK - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 11/15/17 7:50pm ET

    Tennessee Titans PK Ryan Succop missed a 48-year field goal in the team's Week 10 game Sunday, Nov. 12, against the Cincinnati Bengals, which snapped his NFL-record streak of 56 consecutive made field goals inside of 50 yards. The next closest streak of its kind was 46 by Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant from 2013-15.

    Huddle Up: Despite the rare miss, Succop remains one of the top kicker options out there in all of fantasy football. The Titans score a healthy amount of points, having accumulated the fourth most in the AFC, and they're also tied for the second-most field goal attempts in all of football entering Week 11. If you need a kicker and Succop is on the waiver wire for some reason, feel free to grab him.

  • Philip Rivers - QB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 11/15/17 7:30pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers became the eighth quarterback in NFL history with 4,000 career completions after his performance in Week 10 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. In the process, he also passed retired QB Warren Moon for eighth on the all-time list.

    Huddle Up: It's another notch on the belt of what has been a terrific career for the 14-year veteran, but unfortunately for his owners, this hasn't been the typical Rivers season. As it stands, the 35-year-old owns an 87.8 QB Rating, which is his lowest since 2007. Furthermore, he's averaging just over 250 passing yards per contest, his fewest in five years. Of course, with his consecutive games streak in danger due to injury, owners have to wait before deciding to deploy him in Week 11.

  • Matt Ryan - QB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 11/15/17 7:02pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan became the quickest quarterback in NFL history to reach 40,000 passing yards (151 games) with his performance in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys, breaking New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees' record by one game.

    Huddle Up: Ryan has had a fine season up to this point, but given the many career bests that he set a year ago, he's also left a little bit more to be desired from owners who invested an early draft pick on the Falcons' veteran signal-caller. For instance, Ryan's 263.6 yards per game is his lowest mark since 2011. Despite this, he's still worth plugging in the lineup every week and could churn out numbers closer to his norm throughout the rest of the second half of the year.

  • Carson Wentz - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 11/15/17 6:46pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz leads all quarterbacks in passing touchdowns this season through the first 10 weeks, having thrown for 23 scores. If he can maintain his pace and finish on top, he would become the first Eagles quarterback to lead the league in touchdowns since retired QB Roman Gabriel in 1973. Ironically, Gabriel finished that year with 23 touchdown passes.

    Huddle Up: The Eagles are coming off their bye week, so it's not like anyone has any games in hand on the current touchdown leader. It's been a remarkable second campaign for the former North Dakota State product, as Wentz owns an outstanding 104.1 QB Rating, easily besting his 79.3 mark from a year ago. Furthermore, he's thrown just five interceptions. Wentz is an unquestioned QB1 and should live up to that status in this week's date with the Cowboys.

  • Chris Hogan - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/15/17 6:20pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) is still in Massachusetts and is receiving treatment on his injured shoulder. The Patriots are practicing in Colorado this week.

    Huddle Up: It appears that Hogan will miss at least one more game because of his shoulder, so owners in all leagues should avoid him. Danny Amendola and Martellus Bennett could see more targets in Week 11, but neither player is a strong fantasy option.

  • Jared Goff - QB - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 11/15/17 6:05pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff has the second largest increase in passer rating from a quarterback's first year to his second, thus far owning a 101.5 QB Rating this season, which is 37.9 better than his 63.6 mark of a year ago. That difference has him only behind Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles, who oversaw a difference of 40.1 in his QB Rating from 2012-2013.

    Huddle Up: Goff's significant improvement from his disastrous rookie campaign has been one of the best stories of the season. It also has solidified him as a legitimate QB1, even when he has a tough matchup, which will be the case in Week 11. Despite a date on tap versus the Vikings, it's just too tough to bench him opposite any opponent, especially with how he's been rolling as of late. In his last two games, Goff has topped 300 yards in both contests while amassing seven total touchdowns compared to no interceptions.

  • Bruce Ellington - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 11/15/17 5:36pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Bruce Ellington 'needs to get the ball more,' according to head coach Bill O'Brien, who added that 'he's doing some really good things out there.'

    Huddle Up: Ellington has become more involved in the passing game since Deshaun Watson went down, as he's drawn eight targets in each of the last two games, turning that into seven catches for 63 yards and his second touchdown of the season. While those numbers don't exactly sound glamorous, it is encouraging that his head coach wants him more involved, which makes him a sleeper option to ponder in deeper formats.
