Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Chris Carson - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/24/17 6:51pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson finished with 11 carries for 34 yards and caught two passes for 18 yards and a touchdown in a 33-27 loss to the Tennessee Titans in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: While Carson wasn't efficient running the ball, he did lead the backfield in carries once again and salvaged his stat line with a receiving score. He still looks like the lead back for the Seahawks and has RB2 potential against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 4.

  • Travis Kelce - TE - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/24/17 6:36pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce posted just one catch for one yard on his only target in Week 3 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

    Huddle Up: There was no word of any kind of injury for Kelce, it just appears the Chargers did a good job of taking him out of the game and forcing Alex Smith to go elsewhere. He'll look to rebound in Week 4 against the Redskins on Monday Night Football.

  • Albert Wilson - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/24/17 6:35pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Albert Wilson posted three catches for 18 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the Los Angeles Chargers. He was targeted four times.

    Huddle Up: Wilson found the end zone, which is nice, but his fantasy value remains limited as long as Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill and Kareem Hunt remain healthy. That triumvirate will see a majority of the touches with Wilson fighting with others for scraps.

  • Tyreek Hill - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/24/17 6:35pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill racked up five receptions for 77 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the Los Angeles Chargers. He was targeted eight times.

    Huddle Up: The speedy Hill has been a big part of the offense, posting 16 receptions with 253 receiving yards and two touchdowns while also rushing six times. Andy Reid is trying to figure out ways to get the ball into Hill's hands and that's great news for fantasy owners. The Chiefs host the Redskins in Week 4.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/24/17 6:34pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham caught seven passes on 11 targets for 72 yards in a 33-27 loss to the Tennessee Titans in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Graham entered the game with four catches on nine targets for nine yards, but this was the type of performance his fantasy owners expect. The Seattle passing attack looked better overall, and Graham can be considered a TE1 heading into a Week 4 matchup with the Indianapolis Colts.

  • Kareem Hunt - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/24/17 6:34pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed 17 times for 172 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the Los Angeles Chargers and he added one catch for 11 yards.

    Huddle Up: Hunt is the first rookie since Matt Forte in 2008 to post 100 or more scrimmage yards in each of his first three NFL games. He continues to carry fantasy owners who took a chance on him in the middle rounds on draft day. He'll look to keep it rolling in Week 4 against the Redskins on Monday Night Football.

  • Russell Wilson - QB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/24/17 6:34pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 29 of his 49 pass attempts for 373 yards and four touchdowns and ran seven times for 26 yards in a 33-27 loss to the Tennessee Titans in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Wilson came alive in the second half, and he ended up throwing for more yards than he did in the first two games combined. The offensive line issues aren't going away, but Wilson has a good chance to deliver another QB1 effort against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 4.

  • Alex Smith - QB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/24/17 6:33pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 16 of his 21 pass attempts for 155 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 3 road game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

    Huddle Up: Smith didn't throw the ball down the field much, and frankly he didn't have time. He was sacked five times. But Smith was aided again by the running of rookie Kareem Hunt, and Smith did just enough to not make mistakes and lead his team to another win. He isn't a huge fantasy asset, but he isn't a bad No. 2 option in most leagues heading into Week 4 against the Redskins on Monday Night Football.

  • Branden Oliver - RB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/24/17 6:31pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Branden Oliver rushed eight time for 16 yards in Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs and he added four receptions for 18 yards on six targets.

    Huddle Up: Oliver was thrust into action with Melvin Gordon checking out for about a quarter and a half due to a knee ailment. He isn't likely to have much in the way of fantasy appeal in Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles unless Gordon suffers some sort of a setback forcing him out of the lineup. Gordon returned to the game, so it appears he is fine.

  • Hunter Henry - TE - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/24/17 6:31pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry was held without a catch in Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs, and he didn't even have one target.

    Huddle Up: That's two of Henry's three games without a catch so far in 2017. He is the heir apparent to Antonio Gates with the Bolts, but he has been too inconsistent so far to rely upon regularly outside of deeper fantasy leagues. He'll look to rebound in Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

  • Antonio Gates - TE - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/24/17 6:30pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates posted two receptions for 30 yards on five targets in the Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Gates didn't do much, but at least he wasn't blanked like Hunter Henry. The veteran Gates shouldn't be relied upon as a regular fantasy contributor at this point of his career, but it appears Henry isn't quite ready to take the torch just yet.

  • Keenan Allen - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/24/17 6:30pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen managed five receptions for 61 yards on nine targets in the Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Allen has five or more catches in each of his first three games. He has always been productive, especially for those in PPR fantasy formats, when healthy. He appears to be 100 percent after an ACL injury last season and he remains a solid WR2 heading into Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

  • Travis Benjamin - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/24/17 6:29pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin posted five receptions for 105 yards on eight targets in the Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin is a speed burner, and his 44-yard catch was just one yard short of a career best. Temper expectations heading into Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles, however, as he entered the game with just four grabs for 54 yards and a score. He needs more games like this before he becomes someone to consider regularly in fantasy.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/24/17 6:28pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee) finished with 79 rushing yards and a touchdown on 17 carries in the Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Gordon left the game in the first half due to a knee injury, staying in the locker room at halftime to receive further treatment. He was able to return in the fourth quarter and finish the game. It's a good sign for fantasy owners that he was able to return. He'll meet the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 4 barring any setbacks.

  • Philip Rivers - QB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/24/17 6:28pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed 20 of his 40 pass attempts for 237 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions in the Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Rivers had a nightmare outing, as he was picked three times, sacked twice and he had another potential interception overturned by instant replay. He posted a dismal 37.2 quarterback rating in the loss. Rivers now has four touchdowns and four interceptions through his first three games, all losses. He'll look to rebound in Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

  • Doug Baldwin - WR - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/24/17 6:16pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (groin) exited in the fourth quarter against the Tennessee Titans in Week 3 with a groin injury, and head coach Pete Carroll said the severity of the injury is not yet known. Baldwin had 10 catches on 15 targets for 105 yards and a touchdown before departing.

    Huddle Up: Check back for updates on Baldwin's status. He is a high-end WR2 as long as he is healthy, but if he is forced to miss time, Paul Richardson could see a significant boost in his value.

  • Jake Elliott - PK - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/24/17 5:09pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles PK Jake Elliott booted a 61-yard game-winning field goal in Week 3 against the New York Giants. It was the seventh-longest field goal in NFL history, and third-longest walk-off field in league history.

    Huddle Up: Elliott also had a 46-yard field goal, as the rookie certainly made plenty of headlines with the walk-off winner. He isn't a bad streaming option in fantasy leagues in Week 4 against the Chargers if you're desperate for a replacement with potential length.

  • Jesse James - TE - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 9/24/17 5:08pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James (shoulder) finished with two receptions for 19 yards on four targets in the Week 3 game against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: James left the game due to a shoulder injury, but he was able to return and finish up. Unfortunately for fantasy owners he didn't do much. He'll try to rebound in Week 4 against the Baltimore Ravens, a team which was rolled for three touchdowns by Jacksonville Jaguars TE Marcede Lewis in London in Week 3.

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 9/24/17 5:08pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers rookie WR JuJu Smith-Schuster caught two balls for 39 yards on six targets in the Week 3 game against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: The rookie out of Southern California was targeted frequently and he appears to be the No. 3 receiver in the Steel City behind Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant. He is worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues and as a long-term prospect.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 9/24/17 5:07pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant posted two receptions for 30 yards on eight targets in Week 3 against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Ben Roethlisberger looked for Bryant early and often, but the two only connected on 25 percent of Bryant's targets. He'll look for a much better conversion rate in Week 4 against a Baltimore Ravens pass defense which was minced up in London by the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars.
