Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Christian Kirk - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 10/14/18 2:40pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk caught six passes for 77 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Kirk has been playing well lately with at least 77 yards in three of the last four games. He appears to be one of the main options in the passing game for the Cardinals and could be a No. 3 receiver or flex option for owners.

  • Andy Dalton - QB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 10/14/18 2:37pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 26-of-42 passes for 229 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 6 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Dalton has posted at least two touchdown strikes in five of his six games this season, and he really has had one only poor game statistically when he was picked off four times in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers. He faces a tough matchup on the road in Kansas City in Week 7.

  • David Johnson - RB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 10/14/18 2:33pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson rushed for 55 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6. He also caught two passes for 15 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Johnson has not rushed for more than 71 yards in any game this season but has scored a touchdown in each of his last four games. He should continue to be a focal point on offense for the Cardinals and is a weekly starting option for owners.

  • Josh Rosen - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 10/14/18 2:27pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen went 21-for-31 for 240 yards and one interception against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Rosen posted a season high in passing yards in this game but was held without a touchdown pass for the first time in three games. He will be facing a solid Denver Broncos defense in Week 7 and probably can be avoided in most leagues.

  • Antonio Callaway - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/14/18 2:26pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Antonio Callaway caught two passes for nine yards against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Callaway has been targeted at least nine times in two of the last three games and been held to under 25 yards in three of those games. Callaway could be a flex option for owners next week but is not a must-start option.

  • Jarvis Landry - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/14/18 2:20pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry caught two passes for 11 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Landry was targeted nine times during the game but was only able to catch two of the passes. He should have more success against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next week and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver.

  • David Njoku - TE - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/14/18 2:17pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku caught seven passes for 55 yards and one touchdown against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Njoku has been targeted 23 times over the last two games and appears to have good chemistry with Baker Mayfield. He should be considered a No. 1 tight end next week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

  • Vance McDonald - TE - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 10/14/18 2:16pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald absorbed seven of his eight targets for 68 yards in the Week 6 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: McDonald had seven of the 14 receptions gathered by Pittsburgh tight ends in a busy day. He has emerged as a decent low-end TE1 in most fantasy leagues, especially at a position with very little depth. However, Pittsburgh is off in Week 7 so you'll need to make other plans.

  • Damion Ratley - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/14/18 2:14pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Damion Ratley caught six passes for 82 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Ratley could receive a bigger role moving forward with Derrick Willies out of the lineup. He probably should not be a starting option at this point, but owners can keep an eye on him over the next few weeks.

  • Nick Chubb - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/14/18 2:12pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb rushed for 25 yards on three carries against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Chubb has rushed for 25 or fewer yards in all but one game this season and has received only 16 total touches this season. Owners probably should avoid Chubb until he receives a bigger role.

  • Antonio Brown - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 10/14/18 2:12pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown finished with five receptions for 105 yards and a game-winning 48-yard touchdown in the Week 6 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Brown was held relatively in check until erupting for a 48-yard score with just :10 remaining in regulation to sink the Bengals. He might have had some help just past the line of scrimmage on a pick by Justin Hunter, but fantasy owners say, "Shhh!" You'll need to make other arrangements in Week 7 as the Steelers are on their bye.

  • Cooper Kupp - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 10/14/18 2:09pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (leg) suffered an apparent left leg injury in the first half of the Week 6 game against the Denver Broncos and he was carted off.

    Huddle Up: Kupp was tackled via horse collar, and the flag was thrown. As he went down, his leg awkwardly buckled underneath him and the cart was needed to take him to the locker room. It didn't look very good.

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 10/14/18 2:06pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster pulled down seven receptions for a game-high 111 yards on 10 targets in Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster entered with just 94 receiving yards over his past two games, but he was back in business against the Bengals. That's his fourth 100-yard game of the season, and he has been targeted at least eight times in five of his six outings. Fantasy owners will have to make alternate plans in Week 7 as the Steelers are on a bye.

  • Carlos Hyde - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/14/18 2:04pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Carlos Hyde rushed for 34 yards on 14 carries against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Hyde has received at least 14 carries in every game this season and should continue to see most of the carries moving forward. He should have more success against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next week and can be a possible No. 2 running back for owners.

  • James Conner - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 10/14/18 1:57pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner rushed 19 times for 111 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 6 win against the Cincinnati Bengals and he added four receptions for 18 yards on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: There are reports Le'Veon Bell might return to the team after the bye, which would mean Bell reports this coming week to get back into the mix. That would splash a ton of cold water on Conner's fantasy appeal. He has back-to-back 100-yard performances with four rushing touchdowns over the past two games. He also has at least three receptions in all six of his outings to please fantasy owners in PPR leagues.

  • Duke Johnson - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/14/18 1:56pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson caught four passes for 73 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 6. He also rushed for 36 yards on two carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Johnson has been off to a slow start to the season but could turn things around after his Week 6 performance. He can be considered at least a flex option in point-per-reception leagues next week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

  • Baker Mayfield - QB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/14/18 1:51pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield went 22-for-46 for 238 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Mayfield has played well at times this season but has thrown five interceptions in his last three games. He should have a favorable matchup next week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and could be a bye week replacement in some leagues.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 10/14/18 1:51pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 32-of-46 passes for 369 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 6 win against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Roethlisberger improved to 15-2 in his career on the road against the Bengals, including 6-1 when the Steelers are listed as an underdog. The Steelers will get to revel in the comeback win for the next 14 days as they have a bye in Week 7.

  • Josh Doctson - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/14/18 1:47pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson finished with three grabs for 20 yards on six targets in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Doctson had a chance to step up his game with Jamison Crowder sidelined, but like most of his fellow wideouts in Washington he did very little against the Panthers solid pass defense. He'll try to rebound in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys, but he is only worth a look as a WR5 at this point in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Mike Williams - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 10/14/18 1:46pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams caught one pass for four yards against the Cleveland Browns in Week 6. He also rushed for 10 yards on one carry during the game.

    Huddle Up: Williams has slowed down a bit after a strong start to the season and has been held to under 50 yards in four of the last five games. He could be a flex option in some leagues next week but can also be benched if owners have better options.
