Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Cameron Brate - TE - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 10/14/18 7:30pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate caught his only target, a 15-yard touchdown, in a 34-29 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6, and Brate has scored in each of the past three games.

    Huddle Up: While Brate is still a weapon in the red zone, he has just seven catches all year and has become a touchdown-dependent fantasy option.

  • Alfred Blue - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 10/14/18 7:25pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue rushed seven times for 26 yards in Week 6 against the Buffalo Bills and he added two receptions for 17 yards on three targets.

    Huddle Up: Blue was back to a reserve role after being the bellcow in Week 5 with Lamar Miller (chest) on the sidelines. As such, he is back to RB4 status heading into Week 7.

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 10/14/18 7:23pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) rushed 15 times for 46 yards in his return to the lineup in Week 6 against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: Miller was active last week, but didn't play due to a chest injury. He has 17 total touches to just nine for Alfred Blue, so he's back, he just struggled against a surprisingly stiff rush defense. It won't get any better heading to Jacksonville in Week 7, so treat him as a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option for that one.

  • O.J. Howard - TE - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 10/14/18 7:23pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard caught all four of his targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in a 34-29 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Cameron Brate also caught another touchdown, but Howard has emerged as the top tight end in Tampa Bay. He has topped 50 yards in four of the five games this year and is a low-end TE1 option on a weekly basis.

  • Deshaun Watson - QB - Houston Texans
    Posted 10/14/18 7:20pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson completed 15-of-25 passes for 177 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Week 6 game against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: It wasn't a great performance for Watson, who entered the game dinged up with a chest injury which clearly bothered him against the Dallas Cowboys last week. It might be a good idea to reserve him in Week 7 on the road against a hard-hitting Jacksonville Jaguars defense even though he is a fantasy stud when 100 percent healthy.

  • Mike Evans - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 10/14/18 7:19pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught four passes on five targets for 58 yards in a 34-29 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: It was Evans' worst game of the year across the board, and it also happened to be the first game Jameis Winston started. One game isn't enough to cause concern, but an upcoming matchup with an improved Cleveland defense could push Evans into WR2 territory.

  • Peyton Barber - RB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 10/14/18 7:09pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed 13 times for 82 yards and caught four passes for 24 yards and a touchdown in a 34-29 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: It was Barber's best performance of the season, and while he remains Tampa Bay's lead back, early deficits have forced the Buccaneers to abandon the run in most of their games. A Week 7 matchup with the Cleveland Browns should push Barber into flex territory.

  • Jameis Winston - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 10/14/18 7:00pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 30 of his 41 passes for 395 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions and rushed five times for 31 yards in a 34-29 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Winston piled up some big numbers in his first start of the year, and he has a great chance to be a QB1 the rest of the way thanks to Tampa Bay's potent offense and porous defense. He will face a tougher test against a solid Cleveland defense in Week 7.

  • Charles Clay - TE - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 10/14/18 6:59pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay hauled in four receptions for 20 yards on five targets in Week 6 against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been a useful fantasy option in the past, but he has not jelled with either Josh Allen or Nathan Peterman and is a fantasy afterthought this season. The Bills meet the Colts in Week 7 in Indianapolis.

  • Robby Anderson - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 10/14/18 6:57pm ET

    New York Jets WR Robby Anderson caught three of his five targets for 39 yards in a 42-34 win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Anderson still hasn't caught more than three passes in a game this year, and he was unable to duplicate his big plays from Week 5. As Sam Darnold becomes more comfortable, he should take more shots down the field. Until then, Anderson is an all-or-nothing flex play.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 10/14/18 6:53pm ET

    New York Jets WR Terrelle Pryor (groin) caught five of his six targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in a 42-34 win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6, but he suffered a groin injury late in the game, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

    Huddle Up: Pryor was finally showing signs of life, but it remains to be seen how serious the groin injury might be. Quincy Enunwa also left with an injury, so Pryor could have a chance to build on this performance if he suits up in Week 7 and Enunwa remains out.

  • Jermaine Kearse - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 10/14/18 6:47pm ET

    New York Jets WR Jermaine Kearse caught nine of his 10 targets for 94 yards in a 42-34 win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Kearse has been an afterthought this season, but once Quincy Enunwa left with an injury, he became a focal point of the passing attack. Sam Darnold seems to love his possession receivers, so Kearse could have some flex potential against Minnesota in Week 7 if Enunwa is sidelined.

  • Zay Jones - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 10/14/18 6:41pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones posted three grabs for 35 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: The score was his first of the season and he has thee or more grabs in each of his past three outings. He is slowly starting to show some signs of life, but he is still nothing more than a WR6 in most fantasy leagues right now.

  • Isaiah Crowell - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 10/14/18 6:38pm ET

    New York Jets RB Isaiah Crowell rushed 13 times for 40 yards and caught two passes for 12 yards in a 42-34 win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Crowell has now rushed for 40 yards or less in four of his five games, but his overall numbers are propped up by his 219-yard explosion in Week 5. He remains in a committee with Bilal Powell, and Crowell is a risky flex option heading into a Week 7 matchup with Minnesota.

  • Bilal Powell - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 10/14/18 6:35pm ET

    New York Jets RB Bilal Powell rushed 16 times for 59 yards in a 42-34 win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Powell and Isaiah Crowell continues to split time, but Powell has been a little more consistent as a runner and offers more upside as a receiver. Both backs are flex options, but Powell has a definite edge in PPR formats.

  • Sam Darnold - QB - New York Jets
    Posted 10/14/18 6:26pm ET

    New York Jets QB Sam Darnold completed 24 of his 30 passes for 280 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in a 42-34 win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: It was by far Darnold's most efficient outing, but he still sits at seven touchdowns and six interceptions on the year. He doesn't need to be rostered outside of dynasty leagues.

  • Chester Rogers - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 10/14/18 6:18pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR Chester Rogers caught four passes on 10 targets for 55 yards and a touchdown in a 42-34 loss to the New York Jets in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Rogers led the team in targets, and he has seen double-digit targets in each of the last three games. T.Y. Hilton was still sidelined and Ryan Grant left the game with an injury, and Rogers looks like a quality flex option if either of them remains sidelined going forward.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 10/14/18 6:15pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin posted two receptions for 43 yards on six targets in Week 6 against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: He hasn't had a touchdown since Week 2, and his 43 yards actually represent a season high. Are you sure Cam Newton was the problem in Carolina? Treat Benjamin as a WR6 heading into Week 7 against the Indianapolis Colts.

  • LeSean McCoy - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 10/14/18 6:11pm ET

    Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy rushed 16 times for 73 yards in Week 6 against the Houston Texans and he added three receptions for 21 yards on five targets.

    Huddle Up: It isn't much, and he is still without a touchdown through five games, but at least Shady has 94 or more scrimmage yards in each of the past two weeks. He was drafted to be a RB1 in fantasy leagues, and he is far from that. However, at least he is starting to show some signs of life lately. The Bills travel to meet the Colts in Week 7.

  • Eric Ebron - TE - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 10/14/18 6:11pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron caught four of his seven targets for 71 yards and a touchdown in a 42-34 loss to the New York Jets in Week 6, and he has five touchdowns in five games this year.

    Huddle Up: Ebron has been Andrew Luck's go-to target in the red zone, and he's a TE1 as long as Jack Doyle remains sidelined.
