Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Kai Forbath - PK - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 3/20/18 11:13am ET

    Free-agent PK Kai Forbath (Vikings) is re-signing to an undisclosed deal with the Minnesota Vikings Tuesday, March 20, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Forbath was a quality starting fantasy kicker in 2017 despite missing six field goals and five extra points. With Kirk Cousins in town the Vikings should be scoring plenty again this year, making Forbath a No. 1 fantasy kicker for a second straight year.

  • Ryan Grant - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 3/20/18 9:10am ET

    Free-agent WR Ryan Grant (Redskins) reportedly signed a one-year contract worth $5 million with the Indianapolis Colts on Tuesday, March 20.

    Huddle Up: The Colts need help and depth in a lots of places, and Grant should see a significant amount of time on a team that doesn't have any proof players at receiver besides T.Y. Hilton. Ideally, Grant ends up being Indianapolis's third receiver who gets some run in the slot. He could flirt with fantasy relevancy in 2018, but he would probably need an injury to Hilton or Chester Rogers in order for it to happen.

  • Allen Hurns - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 3/20/18 7:32am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns will be released Tuesday, March 20, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Hurns is always nicked up, and his 64-1,031-10 season was three years ago now. He's worth monitoring, and there's potential, but he's a WR4 or WR5.

  • Matt Ryan - QB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 3/19/18 11:40pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan is 'likely' to sign a contract extension this week that is 'expected to pay him near $30 million per season,' according to Jeff Schultz of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

    Huddle Up: After reaching the Super Bowl and winning MVP honors during the 2016 season, Ryan took a step back this past season, though that isn't to say he had a down year, since he certainly did not. After all, the 10-year veteran still eclipsed the 4,000-yard mark for the seventh straight campaign while logging a solid 91.4 passer rating. He's still firmly in the QB1 picture without question and should present much better value next season.

  • C.J. Prosise - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 3/19/18 10:20pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider recently mentioned that the club 'needs' RB C.J. Prosise 'to be a reliable dude,' adding that he's an 'extremely talented guy.'

    Huddle Up: Seattle's running game was a mess last season, although that had a lot to do with most of their tailbacks being banged up, including Prosise, who landed on injured reserve in mid-November and did not return. That's been a theme of his career up to this point, having played in just 11 out of a possible 32 games since being drafted two years ago. As Schneider said, he's talented but needs to stay healthy, and he'll carve out a useful role if that is the case.

  • Carson Wentz - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 3/19/18 9:58pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) posted video of himself throwing inside the team's practice facility Monday, March 19, as he 'appears to be making some significant strides' in his rehab from a torn ACL and LCL. He's still aiming to return for the season opener.

    Huddle Up: All indications are that Wentz will indeed be ready for the start of the season, which means he can be drafted as your standard QB1 after the sensational sophomore showing he exhibited this past year. Prior to going down with a season-ending injury, Wentz had posted a 101.9 passer rating in 13 games, as he finished with 3,296 yards and 33 touchdowns compared to just seven interceptions.

  • Eric Ebron - TE - Free Agent
    Posted 3/19/18 5:54pm ET

    Free-agent TE Eric Ebron (Lions) signed a two-year contract with the Indianapolis Colts worth a maximum value of $15 million on Monday, March 19, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    Huddle Up: This is a curious signing for the Colts, if only because tight end isn't necessarily a need for the team (Jack Doyle) and Ebron isn't a particularly good blocker. Indianapolis was one of the worst places for Ebron from a fantasy perspective, as he seems unlikely to beat out Doyle. Even if the Colts play more two-tight sets than any other team in the league in 2018, Ebron will likely struggle to maintain TE2 value while also hurting Doyle's case for TE1 status.

  • DeMarco Murray - RB - Free Agent
    Posted 3/19/18 2:06pm ET

    Free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Titans) left his visit with the Miami Dolphins without an agreement Monday, March 19.

    Huddle Up: That doesn't mean an agreement can't eventually get done, but Murray can visit other teams. He's one of the bigger names still on the free-agent market but will assuredly be part of a committee once he finds a new team. Approach him as an RB3 or flex with more upside in PPR scenarios.

  • Donte Moncrief - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 3/19/18 8:42am ET

    Updating previous reports, Jacksonville Jaguars WR Donte Moncrief signed a one-year, $9.6 million deal with $2 million in potential incentives. The contract is fully guaranteed.

    Huddle Up: Moncrief scored touchdowns in bunches, but he has yet to show he can be a reliable fantasy contributor. He's worth the WR4 flyer.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 3/19/18 7:44am ET

    Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (Redskins) will visit the New York Jets, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Pryor could still have some PPR luster as a WR4 or WR5, depending on the situation.

  • Eric Ebron - TE - Free Agent
    Posted 3/19/18 6:43am ET

    Free-agent TE Eric Ebron (Lions) is visiting the Indianapolis Colts Monday, March 19.

    Huddle Up: Ebron has all the physical talent, but he has been oft-injured and a fantasy bust since he entered the league. There is still time to put it together, and he's worth monitoring as a TE2.
