Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Zay Jones - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 11/15/17 5:28pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones (knee) said he is optimistic about his availability for Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Jones should be in uniform in Week 11 unless he suffers a setback during the practice week. He has some chemistry with Nathan Peterman because of the preseason and they played on the same team during the Senior Bowl. Owners may want to see Jones play this week before considering him a fantasy option.

  • Martellus Bennett - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/15/17 5:06pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (hamstring, shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Bennett likely will continue to play despite his shoulder injury and could see a decent amount of targets against the Oakland Raiders. Owners in most leagues should consider Bennett a No. 2 fantasy tight end and can keep him on the bench this week.

  • Danny Amendola - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/15/17 4:52pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Amendola should be in uniform this week and may see more targets with Chris Hogan not expected to play. He has been held to under 40 yards in each of the last four games but can still be a valuable option in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 11/15/17 3:59pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman might be called upon to start in Week 11 against the Seattle Seahawks with RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) uncertain. Head coach Dan Quinn said Wednesday, Nov. 15, that the team is confident in Coleman's ability to shoulder the load.

    Huddle Up: Coleman, who hasn't lost a fumble in 30 games, might be the workhorse against the Seattle Seahawks. While it's not a particularly attractive fantasy matchup, he is a decent low-end RB2 or flex option if Freeman is inactive.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 11/15/17 3:42pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) took some snaps on the sidelines during practice Wednesday, Nov. 15, but did not throw any passes. He also simulated a throwing motion by whipping a towel during the workout. Rodgers is not allowed to practice for at least two more weeks and is not eligible to play again until Week 15 since he is on the Reserve/Injured list.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation because Rodgers could return to the lineup if the Packers have a chance to make the playoffs. Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL when he is heathy but would be a risky option in all leagues if he returns this season.

  • Paxton Lynch - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 11/15/17 3:40pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch worked as the No. 2 quarterback in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15, and he took passing plays with the starting offense with QB Brock Osweiler (shoulder) limited in practice.

    Huddle Up: Head coach Vance Joseph said Osweiler is expected to start in Week 11, but he hasn't decided on the backup between Lynch and Trevor Siemian. Lynch has long-term fantasy appeal, but no use in seasonal leagues.

  • Bruce Ellington - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 11/15/17 3:17pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Bruce Ellington (ribs) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Ellington is expected to receive a bigger role in the passing game with Will Fuller unlikely to play. He has been targeted 17 times over the last two weeks but has only seven catches and 63 yards during that span. Desperate owners in deeper leagues could consider Ellington, but owners in most leagues can find better options for their lineups.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 11/15/17 3:17pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (rest) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 15, and he is off the injury report heading into Week 11 against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Big Ben will be facing a Tennessee pass defense ranking 19th in the NFL, allowing 236.4 yards per game with 17 touchdowns allowed through the air across nine games.

  • Vance McDonald - TE - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 11/15/17 3:15pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 15, and he is listed as questionable for Week 11 against the Tennessee Titans on Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: McDonald is the top tight end option in Pittsburgh and he could be worth a look as a low-end TE1 against a Titans pass defense ranking 19th in the NFL.

  • LeSean McCoy - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 11/15/17 3:14pm ET

    Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (rest) was rested during practice on Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: It's rather customary for the veteran to take off from mid-week practices. He'll be just fine for Week 11 against the Chargers, and he'll be needed to run hard with Nathan Peterman making his first NFL start under center.

  • Jordan Matthews - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 11/15/17 3:13pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Matthews has been a huge disappointment in Buffalo so far, and his fantasy outlook is rather murky with Nathan Peterman taking over under center for the benched Tyrod Taylor.

  • Charles Clay - TE - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 11/15/17 3:12pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Clay was able to return from a long-term knee injury in Week 10, but he wasn't terribly busy as he eased back in. His fantasy outlook is rather murky with Nathan Peterman taking over under center in Buffalo.

  • Tom Savage - QB - Houston Texans
    Posted 11/15/17 3:11pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Savage has thrown for 440 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions the last two weeks and will continue to be the starting quarterback for the foreseeable future. He will be facing a solid Arizona Cardinals defense and should be avoided in all leagues.

  • Brandon LaFell - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 11/15/17 2:56pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: LaFell has a tough enough weekend ahead of him as it is versus the Denver Broncos. Adding a knee that's not at full health makes matters worse. His status will need to be monitored for the next few days, but he can't be viewed as more than a flex at this point.

  • Brock Osweiler - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 11/15/17 2:45pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Denver's losing streak has not ceased with the change to Osweiler at quarterback. He has not proven to be a quality fantasy quarterback either. That goes for his whole career, not just his starts this season. He should not be started this week.

  • John Brown - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 11/15/17 2:43pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (back) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Brown hasn't found the end zone in three games dating back to Week 6 against the Buccaneers. He remains a WR4 or WR5 in most fantasy leagues of 14 or more teams, and he is even less attractive from a fantasy perspective with Blaine Gabbert under center.

  • Demaryius Thomas - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 11/15/17 2:41pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: You're not going to bench Thomas, but the Cincinnati Bengals have been tough against wide receivers this year. Somewhat surprisingly, Thomas has scored in two straight games with Brock Osweiler starting, so keep viewing him as a solid WR2.

  • Terrance West - RB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 11/15/17 2:19pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Terrance West (calf) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Both West and Danny Woodhead look to be back in Baltimore's backfield this week. Don't expect them to see a full plate, though, as both backs are coming off extended absences. Take a wait-and-see approach with West in Week 11. That's assuming he's even active.

  • Ezekiel Elliott - RB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 11/15/17 2:11pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has withdrawn his appeal for his six-game suspension, according to a source. Elliott will serve the suspension and return to the Cowboys against the Seattle Seahawks Dec. 24.

    Huddle Up: Elliott didn't have much of a chance of winning his appeal anyway, and the appeal process may have lasted longer than the rest of the regular season anyway. Alfred Morris will see the majority of carries out of the backfield, but Rod Smith is a PPR sleeper after catching four passes last week while splitting time with Morris.

  • Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 11/15/17 2:05pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) was limited in practice on Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Fournette was able to play in Week 10, but he was bottled up for the most part. He will be facing the NFL's No. 4 ranked rushing defense in Week 11, as the Browns allow just 86.4 yards per game. Still, Fournette is a must-start fantasy option whenever he is active.
