Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • T.Y. Hilton - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 8/18/18 11:37am ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) banged up his left shoulder in practice Saturday, Aug. 18, and he was being iced down by trainers.

    Huddle Up: There is no report on the severity of his injury, but it's likely just your standard training camp bump or bruise. Fantasy owners should continue to tab him as a low-end WR1, especially with Andrew Luck back to bump up the receiver's value.

  • Josh Gordon - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 8/18/18 10:38am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is still in the substance abuse program and will not be allowed to participate in practice until certain conditions are met, according to NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see when he will be able to return to the field. He should be a No. 2 fantasy receiver in all leagues when he plays.

  • Carson Wentz - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 8/18/18 9:19am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) will participate in team drills during practice Sunday, Aug. 19.

    Huddle Up: Wentz has been limited for the last several days but will once again participate in 11-on-11 drills. He is still a question mark for Week 1 but should play most of the season. Wentz can be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues, but owners should add a good backup in case Wentz misses a few games.

  • Josh Gordon - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 8/18/18 9:18am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has ended his leave of absence and has rejoined the team. General manager John Dorsey said Gordon will initially participate in meetings and conditioning and then will be eased into football activities.

    Huddle Up: Gordon probably will not receive much preseason playing time but should be ready for the start of the regular season. He is one of the better receivers in the NFL when he is on the field and can be a solid No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Dalvin Cook - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 8/18/18 9:04am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (knee) is not expected to play in the second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 18.

    Huddle Up: Cook probably will play in the third preseason game and should be ready for the start of the regular season. He will be the main running back for the Vikings this season and can be at least a No. 2 running back in all leagues.

  • Kenny Stills - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 8/17/18 11:57pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills (ankle, calf) has been battling an ankle and a calf injury, head coach Adam Gase said on Friday, Aug. 17. He is expected to return for the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 25.

    Huddle Up: If Stills is able to return for the crucial third preseason game fantasy owners will have a better idea of how healthy he is. Stills has the potential to be a solid WR3 or flex fantasy option, as someone has to step up and fill the void of the departed Jarvis Landry.

  • Corey Coleman - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 8/17/18 11:45pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Corey Coleman made his team debut in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 17 against the Cleveland Browns, his former team.

    Huddle Up: Coleman, who had just one grab for seven yards on his only target, isn't considered a lock to make the Buffalo roster. For now, he is only worth a speculative late-round pick in deeper fantasy leagues.

  • Aldrick Rosas - PK - New York Giants
    Posted 8/17/18 11:14pm ET

    New York Giants PK Aldrick Rosas connects on a 55-yard field goal in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 17, against the Detroit Lions, and he finished with four points.

    Huddle Up: Marshall Koehn is also in camp, but it's hard to see him unseating the incumbent Rosas, especially after his 55-yarder reportedly made it with plenty of room to spare. Rosas has a strong leg and will be kicking for a high-octane offense, so he should be a Top 10 fantasy option this season.

  • Wayne Gallman - RB - New York Giants
    Posted 8/17/18 11:14pm ET

    New York Giants RB Wayne Gallman rushed five times for 26 yards and a touchdown in the preseason game against the Detroit Lions on Friday, Aug. 17, and he added two grabs for nine yards and a score.

    Huddle Up: Gallman is stuck behind Saquon Barkley and Jonathan Stewart on the depth chart, but he will still likely get his chance to make an impact. Barkley is sidelined with an injury now, and is only a rookie, and Stewart has a propensity for injury. Right now, Gallman is only worth a reserve roster spot as a late-round pick in the deepest of fantasy leagues, but he could be an impact player if he gets a chance.

  • Cameron Meredith - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 8/17/18 10:38pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (knee) was able to make his preseason debut Friday, Aug. 17, against the Arizona Cardinals. He was only targeted once and failed to catch the pass right at it which was intercepted after it bounced into the air. He wasn't happy with his performance, but felt good as he makes his final steps in his recovery. 'It felt great,' Meredith said. 'Just getting out there, getting in the groove of things.'

    Huddle Up: Meredith suffered a torn ACL and torn MCL in a preseason game last August as a member of the Chicago Bears. He played the entire first half and didn't show any ill effects of his injury. If he can regain his form and build up his stamina, he has WR3 upside while working with Drew Brees and the high-octane New Orleans offense.

  • Jonathan Williams - RB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 8/17/18 10:35pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Jonathan Williams saw some work with the first-team offense in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 17, against the Arizona Cardinals. He had a seven-yard run and a 19-yard rush behind the first-teamers, but he appeared to miss a blitz pickup in the second quarter.

    Huddle Up: Williams has had a couple of decent performances in the preseason, as he challenges veterans Shane Vereen and Terrance West for the third running back job behind Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara. Unless one of the stars in the top two spots go down, whomever wins the No. 3 job is still not terribly useful from a fantasy perspective.

  • Chad Williams - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 8/17/18 10:31pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Chad Williams turned heads in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 17, against the New Orleans Saints, posting three receptions for 33 yards. He and WR Christian Kirk made their presence felt, much to the delight of head coach Steve Wilks. 'I definitely did,' Wilks said. 'Those guys did a great job.'

    Huddle Up: Williams and Kirk stepped up with Brice Butler (foot) sidelined, as they battle JJ Nelson and others for depth chart position. As far as Williams is concerned, it was redemption, as he had several drops in practice on Wednesday. His coach said he would 'catch everything' in the game, and Wilks proved prophetic since Williams didn't have any miscues. For now, Williams is only worth a late-round flier in the deepest of fantasy leagues.

  • Christian Kirk - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 8/17/18 9:19pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk caught four passes for 49 yards and a touchdown in a 20-15 preseason win over the New Orleans Saints Friday, Aug. 17.

    Huddle Up: Kirk doesn't have a clear path to a lot of playing time early on, but he's not a bad late-round flier in redraft leagues.

  • David Johnson - RB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 8/17/18 9:09pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson rushed six times for 22 yards and a touchdown and caught one pass for five yards in a 20-15 preseason win over the New Orleans Saints Friday, Aug. 17.

    Huddle Up: As long as Johnson stays healthy, he should return to his workhorse role in the Arizona offense. Even coming off the injury, he's a top-five option at his position.

  • C.J. Anderson - RB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 8/17/18 8:52pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB C.J. Anderson rushed eight times for 39 yards and caught two passes for nine yards in a 27-20 win over the Miami Dolphins Friday, Aug. 17.

    Huddle Up: Christian McCaffrey starred in this one, but Anderson should still see some work on early downs. At the very least, he's worth owning as a RB4 in case something happens to McCaffrey.

  • Christian McCaffrey - RB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 8/17/18 8:38pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed five times for 92 yards and a touchdown and caught four passes for 28 yards in a 27-20 win over the Miami Dolphins Friday, Aug. 17.

    Huddle Up: The Panthers really do seem to be committed to feeding McCaffrey as a runner, and if he continues to see plenty of carries, he is going to be a RB1 in PPR formats.

  • Kenyan Drake - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 8/17/18 8:33pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake rushed eight times for 54 yards and caught three passes for four yards in a 27-20 preseason loss to the Carolina Panthers Friday, Aug. 17.

    Huddle Up: Frank Gore is going to see some touches, but Drake is the more explosive back. He's a low-end RB2 candidate.

  • Nick Chubb - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 8/17/18 8:20pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb rushed 11 times for 53 yards and a touchdown in a 19-17 preseason loss to the Buffalo Bills Friday, Aug. 17.

    Huddle Up: With Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson also in the fold, Chubb is probably going to have a limited role this season. He's worth a late-round stash in redraft leagues in case of an injury, but his long-term prospects are much more intriguing.

  • Carlos Hyde - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 8/17/18 8:11pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Carlos Hyde rushed nine times for 64 yards and a touchdown and lost five yards on his only catch in a 19-17 preseason loss to the Buffalo Bills Friday, Aug. 17.

    Huddle Up: Duke Johnson is going to cap Hyde's upside in PPR formats, but Hyde should see plenty of work on early downs and can be a strong RB3 in standard scoring.

  • LeSean McCoy - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 8/17/18 7:49pm ET

    Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy rushed four times for 11 yards and lost a yard on his only reception in a 19-17 preseason win over the Cleveland Browns Friday, Aug. 17.

    Huddle Up: McCoy is locked into an every-down role for Buffalo, but some allegations off the field make his future cloudy. He's a RB1 if he plays the entire season, but he will be one of the riskier picks of the first few rounds.
