Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Jay Cutler - QB - Free Agent
    Posted 4/13/17 6:14pm ET

    Free-agent QB Jay Cutler (Bears) is still contemplating retirement, according to a league source.

    Huddle Up: Even if Cutler decides to return, his chances of being a valuable fantasy asset are almost nonexistent.

  • Travis Kelce - TE - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 4/13/17 5:42pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (shoulder) is expected to be '100 percent for training camp,' according to general manager John Dorsey, who added that he is 'ahead' from a rehabilitation standpoint.

    Huddle Up: Kelce underwent shoulder surgery in February, but fortunately, it looks like that won't impede the star tight end going into the new season. As a result, owners shouldn't let that affect his status on draft day, as it appears Kelce can be selected with confidence in hopes of him providing top-five production at his position. He's worth the investment given his role in the offense.

  • Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 4/13/17 5:32pm ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (leg) will report for the first day of the team's voluntary offseason program Monday, April 17, according to a team spokesperson. Head coach Mike Mularkey said the team will be overly cautious with Mariota, who is expected to return to the field in time for the start of training camp.

    Huddle Up: This would appear to be another step in Mariota being ready for the season opener. As long as he's healthy going into Week 1, he has the chance to be an extremely valuable fantasy quarterback given what he did last season, throwing for 3,426 yards and 26 touchdowns compared to only nine interceptions. Mariota can present excellent value towards the end of drafts.

  • Trevor Siemian - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 4/13/17 12:54pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian admitted that he needs to throw the ball sooner in order to protect himself.

    Huddle Up: Siemian is still quite young and was in his first season as a starting quarterback last year, so we'll give him a pass. He'll need to fend off Paxton Lynch to make it as a starter in 2017, and whoever starts should not be drafted as a QB1.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 4/13/17 10:25am ET

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) is not expected to sign with anyone before the NFL draft. Prospective teams will continue to monitor his status, however.

    Huddle Up: It's hard to sign a 32-year-old running back who has practically missed two full seasons over the last three years. The upcoming running back draft class is stellar, too, which indubitably plays a factor in teams' interest in Peterson. Even if/when he signs, he'll be part of a committee. His days of being a prominent RB1 are likely gone.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB - Retired
    Posted 4/13/17 7:42am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is expected to be traded to the Oakland Raiders, according to sources. The deal is contingent on a reworked contract first. Lynch had permission to talk to the Raiders, and his agents have permission to rework his deal.

    Huddle Up: Lynch turns 31 in a few days, and after only 111 carries in 2015, he has essentially missed a year-and-a-half. It'll take time for his body to get used to the punishment again. He also doesn't catch many passes, which hurts his value in the popular PPR format. He's still Beast Mode, though, and he'll still be a grinder that you could see as a low-end RB2.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 4/13/17 7:39am ET

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) impressed the New England Patriots, appearing fast and explosive in a recent workout. The New Orleans Saints could seek to sign him before the NFL draft if the financials can be worked out.

    Huddle Up: Peterson is at an advanced age for the position, and he hasn't been much of a receiver. Both of these really limit his fantasy value to the tail end of the RB2 range.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB - Retired
    Posted 4/13/17 7:39am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch has begun the reinstatement process into the NFL, according to a source. He's hoping to play with the Oakland Raiders or team with CB Richard Sherman if he's traded.

    Huddle Up: Beast Mode would be a low-end RB2 in fantasy without a lot of upside, especially in PPR formats.

  • Mike Gillislee - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 4/13/17 5:20am ET

    Buffalo Bills restricted free-agent RB Mike Gillislee visited the New England Patriots recently, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Gillislee ran for a robust 5.7 yards per carry each of the last two seasons, and he scored eight times on the ground last year. He's great in small intervals, but he'll need an injury to LeSean McCoy to see a bigger role in Buffalo. He's an RB4 in fantasy unless that happens.
