Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Tyrod Taylor - QB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/18/17 10:37am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor will be the starting quarterback in Week 3 against the Denver Broncos, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

    Huddle Up: Taylor is being set up to fail in Buffalo this season, but rookie Nathan Peterman probably isn't anywhere close to ready yet and the Bills probably don't want to throw him to the wolves against the Broncos anyway. It feels like the hook is coming soon for Taylor, so owners hoping for him to turn it around might want to pursue other options.

  • Ezekiel Elliott - RB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 9/18/17 10:26am ET

    Updating an ongoing story, Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's suspension remains on hold after the NFL's request for a stay in the case was denied Monday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: Elliott is expected to play against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3, and he's coming off a rough game. It's a tough matchup, but he remains a high-end RB1 option.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/18/17 10:03am ET

    Seattle Seahawks Jimmy Graham (ankle) came away from Week 2 with a sore ankle and it is 'unclear' at the moment if he will play in Week 3 versus the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Graham appeared to injure his left knee in Week 2 after getting rolled up while blocking on a running play, but it is possible he came away from the play with more pain in his ankle instead. At any rate, the 30-year-old has had a rough start to the season, committing some bad drops and getting blasted by defenders on at least a couple of occasions. He'll most likely turn it around when Seattle gets its passing game on track, but he needs to sit in fantasy leagues for the time being.

  • Corey Coleman - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/18/17 9:19am ET

    Updating an earlier report, Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) has a broken hand, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: That's probably a four-to-six-week situation at least. Coleman can be dropped in non-dynasty formats. Sammie Coates didn't catch any of his four targets, but he may be seeing more come his way in the near term. He's worth a speculative waiver claim.

  • Randall Cobb - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/18/17 9:14am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) will have an MRI Monday, Sept. 18, on the shoulder injury that knocked him out of the Week 2 game.

    Huddle Up: Cobb played through a shoulder injury two years ago and didn't do so very affectively. The Pack are already missing two of their best offensive linemen and lost Jordy Nelson (quadriceps) in Week 2. If Cobb can go and Nelson can't, he'd be in the low-end WR2/high-end WR3 realm. Stay tuned for updates.

  • Jordan Reed - TE - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/18/17 9:03am ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (chest) suffered a sternoclavicular joint sprain in Week 2 Sunday, Sept. 17.

    Huddle Up: Reed returned to action, and it's going to be a pain-tolerance issue, which hasn't been his strong suit in recent years. Stay tuned for further testing today, but he's a risky play in Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/18/17 8:52am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back, knee) is battling back and knee injuries, and his status for Week 3 is uncertain.

    Huddle Up: Eifert has been less than durable for a few seasons now, and he, along with the entire offense, has struggled to open the season. If he suits up, you're still probably better off finding a different option for now.

  • Greg Olsen - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/18/17 8:49am ET

    Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) will undergo surgery on his broken right foot and miss six to eight weeks. The team will decide after surgery whether he'll be placed on the Reserve/Injured list designated to return.

    Huddle Up: If you have roster space, hold on to him and stash him for the stretch run. Ed Dickson had two grabs for 26 yards in his absence, but he doesn't have much fantasy appeal. Expect Kelvin Benjamin to see more targets with Cam Newton's security blanket out. K-Benj is a good WR2 to have.

  • Sam Bradford - QB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/18/17 7:28am ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) just had swelling and discomfort from taking a shot to his knee, and he could return in Week 3, according NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. His status will depend on how he responds to treatment.

    Huddle Up: Bradford would be a backup or emergency option in fantasy against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3.

  • Corey Coleman - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/18/17 7:20am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) is feared to have suffered a broken hand, according to a source. He'll undergo tests Monday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: Coleman is a speculative WR5 and a broken hand would make him worth dropping except in dynasty formats.

  • DeMarco Murray - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/18/17 6:22am ET

    Updating previous reports, Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) sat out of the second half in Week 2 due to tightness in his hamstring. It's the same injury that bothered him in the preseason.

    Huddle Up: Derrick Henry has been pushing Murray all along, and it may be time for Murray to sit and heal. If Murray sits, Henry will be an RB2 option against the Seattle Seahawks. If Murray goes, he's demoted to the flex area due to the injury risk, and Henry would be an RB3 as well.

  • Greg Olsen - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/18/17 5:32am ET

    Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) figures to miss six games and could go on the Reserve/Injured list designated to return. It's not a season-ending injury.

    Huddle Up: Ed Dickson had two catches for 26 yards in the game, and he has very little roster appeal. Kelvin Benjamin should see more looks in Olsen's absence as a WR2.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/18/17 5:17am ET

    Updating previous reports, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (groin) will test his groin injury Monday, Sept. 18, but it's not believed to be serious.

    Huddle Up: Gronk had a 6-113-1 game in Week 2 and is an elite TE1 in any matchup. Stay tuned for test results.

  • Odell Beckham - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 9/18/17 5:17am ET

    Updating previous reports, New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) is 'up in the air' to play Monday, Sept. 18, against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: There isn't a lot you can do if you have him in your lineups since they play Monday night, but keep an eye on the situation throughout the day. He's a WR1 if he's active.

  • Martellus Bennett - TE - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/17/17 9:58pm ET

    Green Bay Packers TE Martellus Bennett posted five receptions for 47 yards on a game-high 11 targets in Week 2 at Atlanta.

    Huddle Up: Aaron Rodgers looked to Bennett early and often, but especially once Jordy Nelson went down in the first half with a quadriceps injury. If Nelson is forced to miss time it is good news for the fantasy appeal of Bennett going into Week 3 against Cincinnati.

  • Randall Cobb - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/17/17 9:57pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb posted six receptions for 60 yards on nine targets in Week 2 at Atlanta and he ran once for 10 yards.

    Huddle Up: Cobb did a good job in the second half, as everyone moved up and had more responsibilities once Jordy Nelson left the game early due to a quadriceps injury. If Nelson is forced to miss time Cobb could see six to eight targets in Week 3 against the Bengals to make him a useful WR3 or flex fantasy option.

  • Davante Adams - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/17/17 9:57pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams hauled in eight receptions for 99 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 at Atlanta and he was targeted 10 times.

    Huddle Up: Adams stepped up and filled the void left by Jordy Nelson, who checked out early in the first half due to a quadriceps injury. If Nelson is forced to miss time then Adams will be the top banana in Green Bay's pass attack and that's always good for fantasy value. The Packers host the Bengals in Week 3.

  • Ty Montgomery - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/17/17 9:56pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery rushed 10 times for 35 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 at Atlanta and he added six receptions for 75 yards and a score on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: Montgomery was one of the more reliable receivers for Aaron Rodgers once Jordy Nelson left the game due to a quadriceps injury. It was a great night for fantasy owners of Montgomery across the board. He'll look to carry the momentum into Week 3 against Cincinnati at Lambeau Field.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/17/17 9:55pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 33 of his 50 pass attempts for 343 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Week 2 at Atlanta.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers was playing with a patchwork offensive line due to several injuries but he still had a decent overall stat line. He'll look to keep up the big fantasy production in Week 3 against Cincinnati.

  • Austin Hooper - TE - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/17/17 9:55pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper posted two receptions for seven yards in Week 2 against the Packers on just two targets.

    Huddle Up: Hooper had a huge stat line in the opening game win in Chicago, but we told you to tamp down expectations. His targets remained just about the same, but he had the one big play last week. Until he sees an uptick in targets he should be treated more as a TE2 in most fantasy formats heading into Week 3 in Detroit.
