Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Mike Glennon - QB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/17/17 1:17pm ET

    Chicago Bears QB Mike Glennon went 31-for-45 for 301 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Glennon may not keep the starting job much longer but has posted decent numbers over the first two games. He will be facing the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 3 and should be avoided in all leagues.

  • Phillip Dorsett - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/17/17 1:13pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (knee) suffered a knee injury in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Dorsett was serving as the No. 3 receiver for the Patriots with Danny Amendola out, but it is not known when Doresett will be able to return. Owners can avoid Dorsett even if he is able to play next week.

  • Rex Burkhead - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/17/17 1:04pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (ribs) injured his ribs during the team's Week 2 game and was considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Burkhead was involved in the offense during the first half of the season but did not play after halftime. Owners should know more about his situation in the next day or two. The Patriots use multiple running backs in their offense, which limits Burkhead's fantasy value. He could be a flex option at times this season.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/17/17 12:50pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (groin) suffered a groin injury in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski's status for Week 3 is uncertain at this point, so owners will need to monitor the situation over the next few days. Gronkowski is a No. 1 tight end when he is healthy but his injury history makes him a risky option.

  • Terrance Williams - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 9/17/17 12:46pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Terrance Williams (ankle) is officially active for the team's Week 2 game.

    Huddle Up: Williams will be one of the starting receivers for the Cowboys but is facing a tough Denver Broncos defense. Owners probably should bench Williams this week if they have better options to use.

  • Josh Doctson - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/17/17 12:45pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) is officially active for the team's Week 2 game.

    Huddle Up: Doctson has not made much of an impact since he has entered the NFL and likely will have a limited role in Week 2. He probably should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

  • Dontrelle Inman - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/17/17 12:39pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Dontrelle Inman (groin) is officially active for the team's Week 2 game.

    Huddle Up: Inman probably will serve as the No. 3 receiver for the Chargers this week and could see a decent amount of targets. Inman could be a flex option in some fantasy leagues.

  • Jarvis Landry - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/17/17 12:28pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry (knee) is officially active for the team's Week 2 game.

    Huddle Up: Landry should have a solid role in the passing game against the Los Angeles Chargers and should be used as a possession receiver. Landry can be at least a No. 3 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/17/17 12:24pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) returned to the team's Week 2 game even though he suffered an ankle injury earlier in the game.

    Huddle Up: It appears Newton is dealing with a minor injury and likely will be able to finish the game. He could miss some practice time this week but appears to have a good chance in Week 3. Newton should be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback against most opponents.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/17/17 12:19pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) left the team's Week 2 game early after suffering an undisclosed injury.

    Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to have a bigger idea of Gronkowski's injury. Gronkowski has dealt with injuries over the last several seasons, which makes him a risky fantasy option, but is a No. 1 tight end when he is on the field.

  • Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/17/17 12:18pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (leg) suffered an apparent left leg injury during the team's Week 2 game but was able to walk off the field.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Newton will miss any additional time because of the injury. Newton has been off to a solid start this season and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback if he is healthy.

  • Greg Olsen - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/17/17 11:51am ET

    Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) will not return to the team's Week 2 game because of his foot injury.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to look for an update on Olsen's status after the game to see if he will miss more time. Olsen is one of the best tight ends in the NFL and is a must-start option when he is healthy, but owners may want to look for other options in case Olsen misses time.

  • Kevin Hogan - QB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/17/17 10:57am ET

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer (migraine) left the team's Week 2 game early because of a migraine and is considered questionable to return. QB Kevin Hogan has taken over as the starting quarterback.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check on Kizer's status after the game to see if he will miss any more time. Kizer was solid in Week 1 and should be the team's quarterback of the future but is only a low-end No. 2 quarterback in most leagues.

  • Greg Olsen - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/17/17 10:50am ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) suffered a foot injury in Week 2 but is considered probable to return.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Olsen will be able to return to the game. Olsen is a must-start option in fantasy leagues when he is healthy.

  • Jeremy Maclin - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 9/17/17 10:28am ET

    Baltimore Ravens WR Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) suffered a shoulder stinger during the team's Week 2 game but has returned to the game.

    Huddle Up: Maclin is off to a solid start with the Ravens and will continue to be the slot receiver for the team. He should be considered a No. 3 receiver or a flex option against most opponents.

  • Jordan Howard - RB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/17/17 9:04am ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) is officially active for the team's Week 2 game.

    Huddle Up: Howard will continue to be the starting running back for the Bears but will be sharing snaps with Tarik Cohen. Howard rushed for 52 yards and one touchdown in Week 1 and could be a No. 2 running back or flex option for owners.

  • Josh Doctson - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/17/17 7:36am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) will play in Week 2's game against the Los Angeles Rams, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Doctson had been listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited participant in practice throughout the week. He should not be viewed as a viable option in any fantasy format due to his recent injury history and the likelihood that he will see limited snaps this afternoon.

  • Odell Beckham - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 9/17/17 7:18am ET

    New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. is open to signing a contract extension during the season, and the team is also willing to work on an extension during the season, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: The Giants can work on a deal with Beckham during the season but could wait until after the season to reach a deal. Beckham appears to be on track to play in Week 2 despite his ankle injury and can be a No. 1 receiver if he plays.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 9/17/17 7:09am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson does not have any problems with head coach Sean Payton and the team has no plans of trading or releasing Peterson, according to sources. The team hopes to run the ball more in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Peterson could receive some more snaps this week but is still sharing snaps with Mark Ingram. He will be facing a solid New England Patriots defense and probably should only be considered a flex option in most leagues.

  • Jarvis Landry - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/17/17 6:43am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry (knee) is expected to play without limitation in Week 2's game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

    Huddle Up: Landry was added to the injury report after experiencing swelling and discomfort in his knee Thursday, Sept. 14, although he was able to practice on a limited basis the following day. He should be viewed as a viable WR3 option in PPR formats.
