Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Ameer Abdullah - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 9/18/17 8:48pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah carried 17 times for 86 yards in Week 2 against the New York Giants on Monday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: Abdullah averaged 5.1 yards per carry, but the streak continues for the Lions. They haven't had a 100-yard runner in a single game since Thanksgiving of 2013 when Reggie Bush hit the mark. If Abdullah continues to run with authority, he'll be the next 100-yard runner for the Honolulu Blue and Silver. He'll try to hit the mark in Week 3 when the Falcons come calling.

  • Matthew Stafford - QB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 9/18/17 8:47pm ET

    Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford completed 15 of his 21 pass attempts for 122 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 2 game against the New York Giants on Monday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: Stafford also added three runs for 23 yards. While he didn't have a great nightly statistically for fantasy owners, he didn't make any mistakes and was helped out by a solid run game. Down the road, the threat of the run will open up even more field for Stafford to excel. He'll look for better results in Week 3 when the Falcons visit Ford Field.

  • John Brown - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/18/17 6:41pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (quadriceps) probably will not be able to play against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 3, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

    Huddle Up: Owners can check on Brown's status later in the week, but they probably should use other options since the Cardinals play on Monday Night Football. JJ Nelson will continue to have a bigger role in the passing game if Brown sits out and could be a flex option for owners.

  • Devontae Booker - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 9/18/17 5:42pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker's (wrist) status for Week 3 is uncertain at this point, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

    Huddle Up: Booker probably will need to practice this week if he wants a chance to play, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. He probably would receive limited touches if he plays in Week 3 and can be avoided in most leagues if owners have better options.

  • Corey Coleman - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/18/17 5:23pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) underwent surgery Monday, Sept. 18, to repair the fractured bone in his hand and likely will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Sept. 19. Coleman will be eligible of come off the Reserve/Injured list after eight weeks if he is healed.

    Huddle Up: Coleman dealt with a broken hand last season and missed six weeks, so he will miss a significant amount of the season even if he is not placed on the Reserve/Injured list. Owners in most leagues can drop him if they need to add another player off the waiver wire. Rashard Higgins should receive a bigger role in the offense and could be a flex option in some deeper leagues.

  • Corey Davis - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/18/17 4:48pm ET

    Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis (hamstring) is considered day-to-day because of a hamstring injury, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.

    Huddle Up: Davis was limited to four yards in Week 2 because of the injury, and his status for Week 3 is uncertain at this point. Owners should monitor his situation but probably can keep him on the bench this week.

  • DeMarco Murray - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/18/17 4:36pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) is considered day-to-day because of his hamstring injury, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.

    Huddle Up: Murray probably will be limited at practice for most of the week, so owners will need to check on his status later in the week. He is a solid fantasy option when he is healthy, but owners may want to consider other starting options in case Murray is ruled out for Week 3.

  • Jesse James - TE - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 9/18/17 4:29pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James (ankle) said he expects to play in Week 3 even though he suffered an ankle injury during the team's Week 2 game.

    Huddle Up: Owners can monitor James' progress during the week and will know more about his status after three days of practice. James scored twice in Week 1 but should only be considered a No. 2 tight end in most fantasy leagues.

  • Odell Beckham - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 9/18/17 4:19pm ET

    New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) is officially active for the team's Week 2 game.

    Huddle Up: Beckham probably will be a focal point in the passing game even though his injured ankle may affect his play. Beckham should be considered a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

  • Phillip Dorsett - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/18/17 3:54pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (knee) said his knee is a little sore but hopes to participate in practice this week.

    Huddle Up: Dorsett recorded three catches and 68 yards in Week 2 before he left because of the injury. He likely will continue to be No. 3 receiver for the Patriots for the time being and could be a flex option in deeper leagues if he is active this week.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/18/17 3:43pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (groin) said he is feeling good and considers himself day-to-day.

    Huddle Up: It appears Gronkowski is dealing with a minor injury and has a chance to play in Week 3. Owners will need to keep an eye on his practice participation during the week but should be in starting lineups if he is active against the Houston Texans.

  • Will Fuller - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 9/18/17 3:16pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (shoulder) participated in practice Monday, Sept. 18. His status for Week 3 is uncertain at this point.

    Huddle Up: Fuller has been sidelined since early in training camp because of his broken collarbone, so he probably will need a week or two before he is able to play in a game. He may be eased into the offense when he does start playing but could be a factor during the second half of the season. Owners desperate for help at receiver may consider adding Fuller if he is available on the waiver wire.

  • Dak Prescott - QB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 9/18/17 2:58pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in the Cowboys' Week 2 loss to the Denver Broncos, according to head coach Jason Garrett.

    Huddle Up: Despite the ankle ailment, Prescott put together a solid game even in a blowout loss. The injury doesn't sound serious enough to threaten any game time, but monitor Prescott's status throughout the week to be certain.

  • Randall Cobb - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/18/17 1:45pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb's (shoulder) MRI revealed no significant damage to his injured shoulder. He is considered day-to-day, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: The Packers and Cobb owners can breathe a sigh of relief. Cobb has played like his old self after a disappointing 2016 campaign in which he was hampered by injury. The shifty receiver is an every-week starter in PPR leagues as long as he's healthy. He can be started at least as a flex in standard formats.

  • Andrew Luck - QB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/18/17 1:36pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Jacoby Brissett will likely remain under center for the Colts. He's done nothing to write home about so far this year, but he has only played about a game and a half. Brissett is startable in two-quarterback leagues, but he can be avoided other than that.

  • Rob Kelley - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/18/17 12:39pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ribs) is considered day-to-day with a rib cartilage injury.

    Huddle Up: Perine received 21 carries last weekend due to Kelley being sidelined. If Kelley is forced to miss time then Perine will be a bargain play in daily contests next week even after gaining just 67 yards on those 21 attempts.

  • Jordan Reed - TE - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/18/17 12:34pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (chest) is considered day-to-day with a chest contusion, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

    Huddle Up: Here we go again. Reed is dealing with an ailment. Surprise, surprise. Vernon Davis will fill in for Reed if Reed can't play this weekend. Jamison Crowder, Terrelle Pryor and Chris Thompson would be the main beneficiaries though.

  • Sam Bradford - QB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/18/17 11:51am ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) is believed to have a bone bruise in his injured knee, according to a source. Bradford will be given an injection after which the Vikings will assess how the knee responds and go from there.

    Huddle Up: Bradford's absence was evident in the Vikings' Week 2 loss. The offense sputtered coming off a supremely successful Week 1 outing. Have a backup plan at quarterback in place for now. Case Keenum will start again if Bradford can't play, but don't start Keenum in traditional fantasy leagues.

  • Corey Coleman - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/18/17 11:38am ET

    Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) will undergo surgery on his broken hand, according to a source. Coleman's right hand is the same on he broke last season that caused him to miss six games. That injury did not require surgery, however. A timetable for his recovery was not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Rashard Higgins quickly took over as the Browns' top receiving threat in Week 2 with Coleman sidelined. Kenny Britt appears to be an afterthought in the passing game, so make Higgins a waiver wire priority heading into Week 3.

  • Terrance West - RB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 9/18/17 10:42am ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Terrance West (leg) is dealing with a soft-tissue injury and is day to day. He only played 15 snaps in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: He had an 8-22-1 day with two catches for 23 yards in what could have been a much bigger effort without the injury. Expect him to be ready for Week 3 against Jacksonville Jaguars. You could make a case for him as a low-end RB2, but he's a good flex option.
