Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Tyreek Hill - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 12/10/18 1:50pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (foot) is expected to play against the Los Angeles Chargers this week, according to head coach Andy Reid.

    Huddle Up: Tabs should still be kept on Chiefs' No. 1 wide receiver, but it appears that he will actually play barring a setback before Thursday. If he's active then he must be started.

  • Austin Ekeler - RB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 12/10/18 1:01pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (neck) is day-to-day with a neck stinger he suffered in Week 14. Ekeler was also evaluated for concussion but was cleared and is not in the league's protocol.

    Huddle Up: Unfortunately, Ekeler has a history of stingers, which are tough to recover from in a week, much less a few days. The Chargers play again in Kansas City on Thursday, so he will obviously be hard-pressed to play. The hope is Melvin Gordon will be able to go this week after missing the last two games, but Justin Jackson would appear to be in line for a heavy workload against the Chiefs if that ends up not being the case.

  • Josh Doctson - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 12/10/18 12:50pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (concussion) was placed in the league's concussion protocol Monday, Dec. 10.

    Huddle Up: The Redskins' offensive personnel continues to drop like flies. Doctson somehow managed a season-high 84 yards despite catching passes for Mark Sanchez and Josh Johnson in Week 14. He was a poor bet for huge Week 15 production with the Jacksonville Jaguars next up on the schedule, so this injury should have little impact on many fantasy teams still remaining in the playoffs.

  • Tyreek Hill - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 12/10/18 12:49pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (foot) did not suffer a serious foot injury in Week 14 and is considered day-to-day heading into Week 15, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Unfortunately for Hill and the Chiefs, they play Thursday night. If Hill is unable to practice over the next two or three days then availability will be very much in question. If he and Sammy Watkins both sit then Chris Conley would make for a serviceable flex play in an important tilt with the Los Angeles Chargers.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 12/10/18 12:11pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. (knee) may still return from the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Dec. 10. Head coach Sean Payton has been encouraged by his rehabilitation. Ginn cannot be designated to return if teammate OG Josh LeRibeus (ankle) is designated, however.

    Huddle Up: Ginn did nothing to write home about before being hurt, but he would provide the Saints with a needed receiving threat. Pick him up off waivers if you have the roster room and are needy at the position.

  • Jordan Reed - TE - Washington Redskins
    Posted 12/10/18 12:01pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (foot) is reportedly not dealing with a serious foot injury, but he may not play again this season due to a foot sprain.

    Huddle Up: Most fantasy owners probably would have been thrilled to get 13 games from Reed when they drafted him over the summer, but the season was a disappointment overall because he never seemed to be a high priority for Alex Smith over the first half of the season. He came on a bit in November when Colt McCoy made his way into the lineup, but that was short-lived. Vernon Davis will be the next man up, but he's a dicey investment with Josh Johnson set to finish the season under center.

  • Kenneth Dixon - RB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 12/10/18 12:00pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon should expected his role 'to grow going forward,' according to head coach John Harbaugh.

    Huddle Up: Dixon has been the most talented back in the backfield pretty much from the time he arrived in the draft in 2016, but he simply has been unable to stay on the field. He compiled 70 yards and a touchdown on nine touches in Week 14 while mostly splitting work with Gus Edwards and Ty Montgomery. If Dixon were to become the lead back in Baltimore, he would become the fourth already this season, following Alex Collins, Javorius Allen and Edwards. He should be considered an RB3 for now.

  • Lamar Jackson - QB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 12/10/18 11:33am ET

    Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (ankle) 'should be OK' according to head coach John Harbaugh despite missing the final two plays of the game in Week 14 versus the Kansas City Chiefs with a left ankle injury.

    Huddle Up: The bigger question now is whether or not Harbaugh is ready to go back to Joe Flacco or likes the new smash-mouth offense the Ravens have become under Jackson. Expect the Ravens to milk this for all that it is worth in terms of naming a starter leading up to Week 15 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

  • LeSean McCoy - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/10/18 10:33am ET

    Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is considered day-to-day with a hamstring strain after undergoing an MRI on Monday, Dec. 10.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy owners who started McCoy yesterday hoping he could repeat his Week 10 two-score performance against the New York Jets are probably in worse shape. The 30-year-old was done for the day in Week 14 after generating one yard on two carries, likely sealing the fate of many of his fantasy owners in the process. He seems like a poor bet to go in a meaningless game against the Detroit Lions in Week 15, leaving Chris Ivory has a viable flex option should that be the case.

  • Isaiah Crowell - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 12/10/18 10:17am ET

    New York Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (foot) is 'pretty sore' and 'nicked up,' according to head coach Todd Bowles.

    Huddle Up: ESPN's Rich Cimini suggests it will be difficult for the running back to be ready to play Saturday against the Houston Texans. If that ends up being the case, the Jets will likely lean heavily on Elijah McGuire once again after he posted 83 yards and a touchdown on 20 touches in Week 14 against the Buffalo Bills. Whereas McGuire does enough in the passing game to be a viable flex option versus the Texans, Crowell should be left on the bench if he suits up.

  • Odell Beckham - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 12/10/18 9:53am ET

    New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (quad) told reporters he 'felt a lot better' Monday, Dec. 10, as he continues his recovery from a bruised quad that kept him out Week 14 against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Head coach Pat Shurmur offered only a "we'll see where that takes us" answer when asked about what Beckham's recovery means for Week 15. It seems likely he'll suit up, and he'll return to high-end fantasy WR1 status if he does against a vulnerable Tennessee Titans pass defense.

  • Ryan Tannehill - QB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 12/10/18 9:07am ET

    Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (ankle) is reportedly 'sore' but 'walking around,' according to head coach Adam Gase.

    Huddle Up: Tannehill was forced to miss time and got checked out in the locker room in the Dolphins' surprising Week 14 upset of the New England Patriots, but he was able to return. Gase also didn't seem overly concerned about the injury, so the quarterback figures to be good to go in Week 15 against the Minnesota Vikings. Despite consecutive three-touchdown games, owners should not expect another such effort in either of the final two weeks of the fantasy season.

  • Tyreek Hill - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 12/10/18 6:53am ET

    Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (heel) said his foot injury 'is bad,' after the game Sunday, Dec. 9.

    Huddle Up: The Chiefs have a short week, and there's a very real chance that Hill will be out Thursday, Dec. 14, against the Los Angeles Chargers. Monitor his practice time closely because you could be without one of your big guns in the fantasy playoffs.

  • Doug Baldwin - WR - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 12/10/18 6:28am ET

    Updating previous reports, Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (groin) is doubtful to play Monday, Dec. 10, according to a source. However, the source said Baldwin will probably try to suit up.

    Huddle Up: If you still have a spot left to play, your hands are really tied with him. It's best to look elsewhere. Jaron Brown, fresh off of two touchdowns last week, is a desperation flyer.

  • LeSean McCoy - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/10/18 6:14am ET

    Updating previous reports, Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) will have an MRI Monday, Dec. 10.

    Huddle Up: Nothing is known until the results come out, but it's pretty unlikely you can count on McCoy for much if you're still playing in the fantasy playoffs. If Chris Ivory is available, he needs to be owned for depth.

  • Corey Clement - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 12/10/18 5:23am ET

    Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles RB Corey Clement (knee) will have an MRI Monday, Dec. 10, for what is believed to be a knee sprain.

    Huddle Up: The Eagles' backfield is crowded with fluff right now, and Clement doesn't hold much weight in fantasy.

  • Gerald Everett - TE - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 12/9/18 11:38pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams TE Gerald Everett turned seven targets into four catches for 29 yards in Week 14 versus the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: The catches and targets are career highs. It seems as if the Rams are trying to work Everett into the offense more often in 2018, but they don't typically give him enough playing time to make him a player defenses must fear on a regular basis. He'll probably remain there until he becomes an above-average run-blocker, and there's no telling when that may happen. As such, he's a middling TE2 until further notice.

  • Josh Johnson - QB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 12/9/18 11:35pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Josh Johnson will start in Week 15 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Johnson passed for 195 yards in relief of QB Mark Sanchez on Sunday, Dec. 9.

    Huddle Up: Don't get fooled by Johnson's solid numbers. The Giants built a 40-point lead before taking their foot off the gas, enabling the journeyman to face soft coverage and disinterested fronts. Keep far away.

  • Anthony Miller - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 12/9/18 11:29pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller failed to catch his only target in Week 14 against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Miller had a nice little six-game run during the middle of the season, but he has become a non-factor over the last two. Arguably already the most dynamic wide receiver on the team, it may take a little while before he is allowed to grow into that role to the point where he can be consistently started in fantasy. Owners need to keep him on the bench in Week 15 versus the Green Bay Packers.

  • Trey Burton - TE - Chicago Bears
    Posted 12/9/18 11:14pm ET

    Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton caught two of his five targets for 22 yards in Week 14 versus the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Burton was able to keep himself fantasy-relevant for the first half of the season by finding the end zone on a fairly regular basis. That well has dried up over the last five contests, and the former Philadelphia Eagle has been almost useless in fantasy as a result. Even at a position in which owners are desperate for options, Burton will be hard to start in the fantasy playoffs the rest of the way.
