Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Amari Cooper - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/24/17 8:36pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper posted just one catch for six yards in the Week 3 game against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Cooper and the Raiders offense was held down by a dominating Washington defense. He'll look to bounce back in Week 4 against the Denver Broncos, but that's another difficult matchup. Treat Cooper more as a WR3 for Week 4.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/24/17 8:35pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch rushed six times for just 18 yards in Week 3 against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Lynch did nothing against a dominant Washington defense, and the Raiders got away from the run in the second half which kept Lynch on the sidelines with a long face and a knit hat to watch the rout on a knee. He'll have better days, trying to get it going again in Week 4 in Denver.

  • Derek Carr - QB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/24/17 8:34pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 18 of his 30 pass attempts for just 110 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Week 3 game against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Carr was sacked four times and he turned in a dismal 50.7 quarterback rating, as the Redskins defense seemed to be in the backfield harassing him all evening. He'll look to bounce back in Week 4 on the road against the Broncos in another difficult matchup.

  • Delanie Walker - TE - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/24/17 8:22pm ET

    Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker finished with four catches on six targets for 31 yards in a 33-27 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: After topping 60 yards in each of the first two games, Walker was limited to a few short gains against Seattle. There is no need to hit the panic button. Walker has reached 800 receiving yards in each of the last three seasons and can continue to be deployed as a TE1 moving forward.

  • Derrick Henry - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/24/17 8:12pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (thigh) suffered a bruised thigh in a 33-27 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3, according to head coach Mike Mularkey. Henry played through the injury and finished with 13 carries for 54 yards and one catch for 10 yards.

    Huddle Up: The injury doesn't sound too serious, and Henry finished with one less carry than DeMarco Murray, who came into the game nursing a hamstring injury of his own. When healthy, Murray should continue to lead the backfield, but Henry remains a must-own backup, especially for Murray owners.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/24/17 8:09pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (chest) left the Week 3 game against the Washington Redskins in the second half due to a chest injury and he is questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Crabtree exploded for three touchdowns against the New York Jets in Week 2, but he had managed just one grab for seven yards on three targets before checking out on Sunday.

  • Andy Dalton - QB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/24/17 8:04pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 21 of his 27 pass attempts for 212 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-24 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Dalton had a brutal first two games, but he was at least serviceable in the first game with Bill Lazor as the offensive coordinator. He may be turning a corner, but he is still no more than a QB2 heading into a Week 4 meeting with the Cleveland Browns.

  • Jeremy Hill - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/24/17 7:55pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill finished with seven carries for 23 yards and one catch for six yards in a 27-24 loss to Green Bay Packers in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Hill saw 11 fewer carries than Joe Mixon, and he seems to be falling further behind the rookie. At this point, Hill is only worth stashing in case Mixon goes down with an injury.

  • Joe Mixon - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/24/17 7:38pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon finished with a team-high 18 carries for 62 yards and three catches for 39 yards in a 27-24 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Mixon had 11 more carries than Jeremy Hill, the biggest discrepancy so far this season. It's too soon to tell if the trend will continue, but the needle is pointing up for Mixon, and he could soon find himself entrenched as a RB2.

  • Samaje Perine - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/24/17 7:32pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (hand) left the Week 3 game against the Oakland Raiders in the second half due to a hand injury. He is questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Perine had 19 carries for 48 yards while adding a catch for six yards before departing. He was seeing a heavy workload with Rob Kelley sidelined.

  • A.J. Green - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/24/17 7:30pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green finished with 10 catches on 13 yards for 111 yards and a touchdown in a 27-24 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Green's status as the top option in the passing game is unquestioned, but it was still good to see the Cincinnati offense look competent for the first time all season. Green remains a WR1 in all formats.

  • Martellus Bennett - TE - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/24/17 7:30pm ET

    Green Bay Packers TE Martellus Bennett posted three receptions for just 12 yards on four targets in Week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Bennett took a bit of a back seat to Lance Kendricks in this one, as he was outperformed by his fellow tight end and Kendricks even found the end zone. However, Bennett is still the tight end to target for fantasy purposes going forward. The Packers host the Bears in Week 4 on Thursday night.

  • Lance Kendricks - TE - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/24/17 7:30pm ET

    Green Bay Packers TE Lance Kendricks posted a pair of catches for 52 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: The former University of Wisconsin standout recorded his first touchdown in a Packers uniform, and he might never have had an easier one. He was wide open in the right corner of the end zone on a play-action fake in the first quarter. Despite the score he has limited fantasy appeal as long as Martellus Bennett is also in the mix.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/24/17 7:29pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson racked up six receptions for 52 yards and a pair of scores in Week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals. He was targeted nine times.

    Huddle Up: Nelson left the Week 2 game against the Atlanta Falcons with a quadriceps injury, but he didn't appear to be hampered by the issue in this one. He'll look to keep up his scoring ways on Thursday Night Football in Week 4 against the visiting Chicago Bears.

  • Davante Adams - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/24/17 7:28pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams posted three receptions for 60 yards on six targets in Week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Adams shook free for a 41-yard big gainer on one play, but he was mostly invisible. It was disappointing considering the team was without Randall Cobb, so a slight bump in targets was expected. He remains a WR3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 4 against the Chicago Bears on Thursday.

  • Geronimo Allison - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/24/17 7:27pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison finished with six receptions for 122 yards on eight targets in Week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Allison had a 72-yard reception in overtime to set up the game-winning field. He stepped up his game with Randall Cobb inactive due to injury. If Cobb is forced to miss further time Allison might be a decent short-term option. The Packers host the Bears in Week 4 on Thursday Night Football.

  • Ty Montgomery - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/24/17 7:27pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery rushed 12 times for 35 yards in Week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals and he added eight receptions for just 15 yards on 12 targets. He left briefly due to a dislocated finger, but returned later after having it popped back into place.

    Huddle Up: The Packers were adamant on getting Montgomery the ball, and the Bengals were adamant about making someone else beat them early on. He'll look for much better results in Week 4 against the Chicago Bears on Thursday Night Football.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/24/17 7:24pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 28 of his 42 pass attempts for 313 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in the Week 3 game against the Cincinnati Bengals, and he ran four times for 23 yards.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers and the Packers fell behind at home, and they needed a big comeback and overtime to finally put away the Bengals. Fantasy owners liked seeing the game go to OT, as Rodgers hooked up with Geronimo Allison on a 72-yard pass play to set up the game-winning field goal. More importantly, it pushed him over the 300-yard threshold for point bonuses. He and his teammates have just a few days to prepare for Week 4 against the Chicago Bears on Thursday night.

  • Rishard Matthews - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/24/17 7:21pm ET

    Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews finished with six catches on 10 targets for 87 yards and a touchdown in a 33-27 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Matthews led the Titans in catches, yards and targets and continues to be one of Marcus Mariota's favorite options. He deserves consideration as a WR3 against the Houston Texans in Week 4, especially if Corey Davis remains sidelined.

  • DeMarco Murray - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/24/17 7:03pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray finished with 14 carries for 115 yards, including a 75-yard touchdown run, in a 33-27 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Murray was questionable coming into the game with a hamstring injury, but he ended up having his best performance of the year. Derrick Henry also saw 13 carries, but if Murray doesn't have any setbacks this week, the carries could swing more in his favor moving forward. Consider him a RB2 against the Houston Texans in Week 4.
