Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Markus Wheaton - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/17/17 6:19am ET

    Chicago Bears WR Markus Wheaton (finger) appears to be a longshot to play in Week 2's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Wheaton was a limited participant in the team's three practice sessions during the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. Seasonal owners should look for safer options to use this afternoon, while he should be avoided altogether in daily fantasy formats.

  • Terrance Williams - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 9/17/17 6:09am ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Terrance Williams (ankle) is expected to play in Week 2's game against the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: Williams was listed as questionable on the injury report but was only able to log a limited practice session Friday, Sept. 15, after spending part of the week in a walking boot. Although he had six receptions for 68 yards against the New York Giants in Week 1, he has a challenging matchup versus Denver, so it's probably best to avoid using him this week.

  • Sam Bradford - QB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/16/17 9:47pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) will be put through pregame workouts before the team decides if he will play against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Bradford's status remains up in the air, and if you were planning on starting him in Week 2, you need to have a backup plan in place.

  • Todd Gurley - RB - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 9/16/17 8:56pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley averaged 0.84 yards before first contact in Week 1, which ranked 37th among 41 running backs. 'We've just got to be more physical, whether me, just everybody,' Gurley said.

    Huddle Up: The stat indicates that Gurley didn't have a lot of help from his offensive line in the opener, but his involvement in the passing game and the performance of Jared Goff were encouraging for his long-term prospects. He should at least be a volume-based RB2 against the Redskins in Week 2.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/16/17 8:30pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham didn't play the way the team expects him to play in Week 1, according to offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, but Bevell said he doesn't expect it to happen again.

    Huddle Up: Graham managed just three catches for eight yards in the opener, but on the plus side, he was targeted seven times. Continue to deploy him as a TE1 against San Francisco in Week 2.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/16/17 8:15pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu faces the Green Bay Packers in Week 2, and last year, he recorded a season-high nine catches for a season-high 84 yards and a touchdown against the Packers in the regular season.

    Huddle Up: Sanu also caught a touchdown against the Packers in the postseason. He could be worth a look as a flex play in deeper leagues in Week 2.

  • Ezekiel Elliott - RB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 9/16/17 7:00pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott can set an NFL record against the Denver Broncos in Week 2 by rushing for at least 80 yards in his 16th straight game.

    Huddle Up: Elliott has as much upside as any back in the league, but fantasy owners can certainly appreciate the consistency, as well. Pencil him in for another week of RB1 production against the Broncos.

  • DeMarco Murray - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/16/17 6:26pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray's 12 carries in Week 1 were tied for his second fewest since joining the Titans, and head coach Mike Mularkey said he would have liked to see more runs. 'I think we need to run it more if we can,' Mularkey said.

    Huddle Up: Tennessee wants to be a run-first offense, but Murray will have his work cut out for him against a solid Jacksonville defense in Week 2. He should still be in your starting lineup, but consider him a RB2 this week.

  • Sam Bradford - QB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/16/17 1:04pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) traveled with the team for their Week 2 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers but is still questionable for the game.

    Huddle Up: Bradford may be a game-time decision for the game, so owners will need to check the inactive list. He is coming off an impressive Week 1 performance and has a solid receive corps to work with in the passing game. Owners may want to consider other options for their lineups because of Bradford's uncertain status.

  • Golden Tate - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 9/16/17 11:25am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (finger) fully participated in practice Saturday, Sept. 16, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Tate recorded 10 catches and 107 yards in Week 1 and will continue to be a focal point in the passing game. He will be facing a tougher defense this week but should still be at least a No. 2 fantasy receiver in all leagues.

  • Odell Beckham - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 9/16/17 11:05am ET

    New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) was limited during practice Saturday, Sept. 16, and is listed as questionable for Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Beckham may be a game-time decision for Week 2, but it appears he has a good chance to play in the game. Beckham is a must-start option when he is healthy, but owners will need to lower expectations because his ankle probably will affect his play. He can be considered a No. 2 fantasy receiver at this point, but owners will need another receiver from that game available in case Beckham is declared inactive.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/16/17 7:16am ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch was fined $12,000 by the National Football League for making an obscene gesture during Week 1's game against the Tennessee Titans, according to a league source. Following one of his carries in the fourth quarter, Lynch put up both of his middle fingers.

    Huddle Up: Lynch gained 76 rushing yards on 18 carries last week and added an 18-yard catch. He makes a viable RB2 or flex option versus most opponents and has a favorable Week 2 matchup against the New York Jets.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/16/17 6:36am ET

    Green Bay Packers TE Martellus Bennett was fined $9,115 by the National Football League for his unnecessary roughness penalty in Week 1's game against the Seattle Seahawks. He gave LB K.J. Wright a two-handed shove after Wright tackled QB Aaron Rodgers on a fourth-quarter scramble for a first down.

    Huddle Up: Bennett finished his first game in a Packer uniform with three receptions for 43 yards. He should be viewed as a low-end TE1 in the majority of fantasy formats.
