Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Josh Reynolds - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 12/9/18 11:01pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Josh Reynolds caught three of seven targets for 36 yards in Week 14 versus the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Reynolds has been a fantasy disappointment in two straight since ripping up the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 11. Although he isn't playing the Cooper Kupp role in the Rams' offense, his stint as a starter in Kupp's place has been more bad than good. The Philadelphia Eagles are a great matchup for him in Week 15, but owners need to be in a fairly desperate position to play him as anything more than a high-upside WR3.

  • Allen Robinson - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 12/9/18 10:53pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson turned eight targets into five catches for 42 yards in Week 14 versus the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Robinson had a touchdown overturned in the second half, but this effort is just the latest in a four-game stretch in which he has been thoroughly underwhelming for fantasy purposes. With no more than 42 yards receiving in six of his last eight contests, Robinson is little more than a middling WR3 for fantasy purposes, including Week 15 against the Green Bay Packers.

  • Jeff Driskel - QB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 12/9/18 10:42pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel went 18-for-27 for 170 yards and a touchdown during the team's Week 15 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

    Huddle Up: To be fair, Driskel had a running TD wiped away on a bizarre interpretation of a new rule that ended his progress just short of the goal line, but even with that it would've been a middling day. There's nothing to see here. Move along.

  • Brandin Cooks - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 12/9/18 10:40pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks caught three of seven targets for 22 yards in Week 14 versus the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: The entire Rams' offense appeared to be bothered by the cold, and Cooks was no exception. Prince Amukamara also did not make life easy on him for most of the evening, typically allowing . As painful as this result was for his fantasy owners, Cooks should be able to rebound in a big way against the Philadelphia Eagles' decimated secondary in Week 15.

  • Austin Ekeler - RB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 12/9/18 10:29pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (neck) aggravated an ongoing problem with stingers late in the game Sunday, Dec. 9, and will require further testing, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    Huddle Up: Schefter opines Ekeler will be hard pressed to play Thursday against the Kansas City Chiefs, which is probably doubly true if you subscribe to the theory that the Bolts held out Melvin Gordon Sunday so he'd be ready to roll on the short week. Keep a close eye out for updates.

  • Robert Woods - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 12/9/18 10:19pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods finished with seven receptions on 13 targets for a game-high 61 yards in Week 14 against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Nobody seemed to be particularly thrilled about playing in the sub-freezing temperatures in Chicago, but Woods was one of the few that handled it fairly well. Owners should actually be fairly happy with his production considering how awful Goff was throughout the game. Woods should have no problem getting back on track at home in Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles' decimated secondary.

  • Mitchell Trubisky - QB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 12/9/18 10:10pm ET

    Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky completed 16 of 30 passes for 110 yards, a touchdown and three interceptions against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Dec. 9. He added 23 yards on six carries.

    Huddle Up: While fans will revel in the win and the performance of Chicago's defense, fantasy owners shouldn't gloss over how terrible Trubisky looked returning from a two-game absence against a team that gave up roughly 85 points to the Chiefs a few weeks back. Inaccuracy and poor decision making were the easiest to spot, but more worrisome was how uncomfortable he looked in the cold weather. With three games of fewer than 175 passing yards in his last four, Trubisky is a risky play even against a patchwork Packers secondary in Week 15.

  • Tarik Cohen - RB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 12/9/18 10:04pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen ran for 69 yards on nine carries and hauled in all four of his targets for 20 yards in Week 14 versus the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Cohen was the best offensive player on either side in this contest and seemingly the only player unaffected by the cold in Chicago. He did pretty much all of his damage in the first half, including an explosive 32-yard off-tackle run that set up the Bears' first field goal. Cohen took a back seat in the second half as Jordan Howard chewed up the clock. Cohen remains the superior play in fantasy moving forward and should be a solid RB2 again in Week 15 versus the Green Bay Packers.

  • Jordan Howard - RB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 12/9/18 9:46pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard carried 19 times for a season-high 101 yards and added a two-yard reception in Week 14 against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Howard's revival was just the most recent part of a week in which seemingly nothing went according to script in the NFL. With the Rams self-destructing on a regular basis, Chicago was able to pound away with the third-year back on a night in which neither offense seemed to handle the bitter cold particularly well. Howard failed to score for a fifth straight game in Week 14, however. It will be difficult to trust him as anything more than a flex option in Week 15 versus the Green Bay Packers.

  • Todd Gurley - RB - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 12/9/18 9:31pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley ran 11 times for 28 yards and caught three of his seven targets for 30 yards in Week 14 versus the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: For the relatively few fantasy owners of Gurley who didn't get a first-round bye in their playoffs, this game likely eliminated them from their postseason. He only had six rushing yards at the half and the Rams simply didn't get him the ball enough after the break even as Goff was in the midst of the worst performance of his career. As much as this effort stings, Gurley should be started without hesitation when the Rams return home in Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

  • Jared Goff - QB - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 12/9/18 9:12pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff finished 20-of-44 for 180 yards with no touchdowns and four interceptions in Week 14 against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Goff entered this game having played only four NFL games in sub-40 degree weather, posting a 75.2 quarterback rating in those outings. He certainly appeared to be affected by it in this one, as he was as an accurate as he has been all season. Two of his four interceptions were inexcusable and a third came when a lineman was pushed back into him. If his owners somehow survived this performance, things should be much better in Week 15 at home against the Philadelphia Eagles.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 12/9/18 8:52pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald finished with five grabs for 55 yards on nine targets in Week 14 against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Fitzgerald continues to produce as a decent low-end WR3 or flex fantasy option in PPR leagues. The Cardinals will travel to meet the defensively-challenged Falcons in Week 15.

  • David Johnson - RB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 12/9/18 8:46pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson rushed 15 times for just 49 yards and he added eight grabs for just 12 yards on 10 targets in the Week 14 loss against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Johnson has killed fantasy owners in most games this season, as the first-round pick hasn't even come close to meeting his ADP value. He'll look to bounce back and give fantasy owners something in Atlanta in Week 15. At this point he looks more like a low-end RB2 or flex play, and even that might be generous.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 12/9/18 8:46pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson caught passes for 48 yards in a 24-21 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: After a five-week stretch of doing next to nothing, Nelson has strung together a couple of decent games. He's still a reach as a flex play.

  • Josh Rosen - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 12/9/18 8:44pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen completed 26-of-41 passes for 240 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Week 14 against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Rosen has plenty of fantasy appeal long-term, but right now he shouldn't be on any rosters.

  • Kenny Golladay - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 12/9/18 8:37pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay posted two catches for five yards on four targets in Week 14 against the Arizona Cardinals.

    Huddle Up: Golladay has been a useful fantasy option at times this season. Sunday wasn't one of those games. Treat him more as a low-end WR4 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 15.

  • Jared Cook - TE - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 12/9/18 8:37pm ET

    Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook finished with seven receptions on 10 targets for 116 yards in a 24-21 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: After a stretch of quiet games, Cook has delivered back-to-back 100-yard efforts. He will be a solid TE1 option heading into a Week 15 matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals.

  • Doug Martin - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 12/9/18 8:32pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Doug Martin finished with 16 carries for 32 yards and a touchdown in a 24-21 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Martin has scored in three straight games, and while the yardage totals won't blow you away, the steady volume makes him a solid flex play,

  • Derek Carr - QB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 12/9/18 8:29pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 25 of his 34 passes for 322 yards and two touchdowns in a 24-21 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Carr has five touchdowns over the past two games, and he could keep the momentum going against the struggling Cincinnati Bengals in Week 15. He's a viable streaming option.

  • Theo Riddick - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 12/9/18 8:26pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed six times for 28 yards in Week 14 against the Arizona Cardinals and he added four grabs for 30 yards.

    Huddle Up: Riddick, Zach Zenner and LeGarrette Blount formed a three-headed monster in the backfield, filling in for the injured Kerryon Johnson. Riddick is only worth using as a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option in deeper PPR play.
