Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/17/17 9:54pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu managed five receptions for 85 yards in Week 2 against the Packers on six targets.

    Huddle Up: Sanu stepped up his game and was a nice secondary target in Matt Ryan's arsenal, which is exactly why he was brought in last season. Still, he is only worth a look as a low-end WR4 or WR5 in PPR fantasy formats heading into Week 3 at Detroit.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/17/17 9:54pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones posted five receptions for 108 yards on nine targets in Week 2 against Green Bay.

    Huddle Up: It was a little disappointing for fantasy owners, as Jones had 93 yards at halftime. However, the team built a giant lead early in the third quarter and shifted to a run-heavy offense with very limited pass attempts to keep his second-half numbers down. He'll look to keep up the solid production in Week 3 at Detroit.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/17/17 9:53pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed six times for 42 yards in Week 2 against the Packers and he added two receptions for three yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Coleman is a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option in PPR formats, but his fantasy appeal is rather limited as long as Devonta Freeman is healthy and seeing a majority of the backfield touches. The Falcons travel to meet the Lions in Week 3.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/17/17 9:53pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman carried 19 times for 84 yards and two touchdowns in Week 2 against Green Bay.

    Huddle Up: Freeman was effective in the red zone early in the game, then the team used the back to hammer on the Packers and chew clock with a big lead. He remains an elite fantasy back heading into Week 3 at Detroit and beyond.

  • Matt Ryan - QB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/17/17 9:30pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 19 of his 28 passes for 252 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 2 against the Packers.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy owners likely were disappointed in Ryan's performance, as he had over 200 yards passing at half. However, with a rather lopsided score in the third quarter, the team shifted to a run-heavy offense with Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman stealing the show. Ryan will look for better results in Week 3 in Detroit.

  • Josh Doctson - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/17/17 9:30pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson was targeted just once in Week 2 against the Rams and he was held without a catch.

    Huddle Up: Doctson, a former first-round pick of the team, has been unable to stay healthy in his brief career. He has been a bust so far, but he has plenty of time to shed the label. However, for now, avoid him in all fantasy leagues until he starts to tap into his immense potential.

  • Samaje Perine - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/17/17 9:29pm ET

    Washington Redskins rookie RB Samaje Perine rushed 21 times for 67 yards in Week 2 against the Rams and he had one catch for no gain on his only target.

    Huddle Up: Perine had the most touches out of the three Washington backs, and he did a pretty solid job. The rookie out of the University of Oklahoma has all kinds of upside, but in a crowded backfield it's uncertain who will be the bellcow from week to week. They're using a hot-hand approach in Washington which is maddening to fantasy owners.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/17/17 9:28pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Terrelle Pryor posted just two catches for 31 yards on four targets in Week 2 against the Rams.

    Huddle Up: Pryor hasn't done much in his first two games with the Redskins so far, as there seems to be a lot more competition for targets than he had in Cleveland. As such, his fantasy stock is plummeting by the minute. He'll look to bounce back in Week 3 against the Raiders, one of his former teams.

  • Jamison Crowder - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/17/17 9:28pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder posted four catches for 47 yards in Week 2 on the road against the Rams.

    Huddle Up: Crowder is off to a bit of a slow start, as the Redskins offense has been run heavy and Kirk Cousins isn't putting up elite numbers right now. Still, don't give up on Crowder in PPR formats heading into Week 3 against the Raiders.

  • Chris Thompson - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/17/17 9:27pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson rushed three times for 77 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Week 2 at L.A. Rams and he added three catches for 29 yards on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: Thompson is certainly paying dividends for fantasy owners as an RB3 or flex fantasy play in PPR formats. He'll look to keep it going in Week 3 against the Raiders on Sunday Night Football.

  • Rob Kelley - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/17/17 9:27pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley rushed 12 times for a team-high 78 yards in Week 2 at L.A. Rams.

    Huddle Up: Kelley remains more of a RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 3 against the Raiders. Unfortunately for fantasy owners of Kelley, the touchdowns on the ground went to Chris Thompson in the Week 2 victory.

  • Kirk Cousins - QB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/17/17 9:26pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 18 of his 27 pass attempts for 179 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 2 on the road against the Rams.

    Huddle Up: Cousins is being paid like an elite quarterback, but so far he has passed for just 419 yards and two touchdowns with one interception through two games. Not good. He might recover in Week 3 in a potential shootout against Oakland on Sunday Night Football.

  • Robert Woods - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 9/17/17 9:26pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods managed just one catch for eight yards on four targets in Week 2 against Washington.

    Huddle Up: The former Bills receiver is trying to learn the team's playbook and offensive system while jelling with a new quarterback and that takes time. So far, he isn't worth using in most fantasy leagues with his new team.

  • Tavon Austin - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 9/17/17 9:25pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin rushed twice for just three yards in Week 2 against the Redskins and he added only one catch for five yards on three targets.

    Huddle Up: Austin has speed to burn, but the Rams just cannot seem to get him the ball enough to tap into his potential. He remains nothing more than a WR4/5 in deeper fantasy formats heading into Week 3 at San Francisco, and he'll need to do more just to remain at that level.

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 9/17/17 9:24pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins posted two catches for just 30 yards on two targets in Week 2 against Washington.

    Huddle Up: Watkins has seven grabs for just 88 yards and he hasn't visited the end zone through two games. He is slowly getting up to speed in the team's system after coming over from the Bills late in the preseason. Eventually he'll re-emerge as a top fantasy option, but right now you can expect mediocre results until he gets up to speed.

  • Cooper Kupp - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 9/17/17 9:24pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp posted three receptions for 33 yards on six targets in Week 2 against the Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Kupp has posted seven receptions for 109 yards and a touchdown through two games, but he is still nothing more than a WR4 in deeper PPR leagues heading into Week 3 at San Francisco on Thursday.

  • Gerald Everett - TE - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 9/17/17 9:23pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams TE Gerald Everett posted three receptions for 95 yards in Week 2 against Washington.

    Huddle Up: Everett made the most of his three targets, leading the team in receiving yardage thanks in large part to a 69-yard reception, the longest play of the game for the Rams. Despite the big total he isn't worth fantasy consideration just yet.

  • Todd Gurley - RB - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 9/17/17 9:23pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley rushed 16 times for 88 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Redskins and he added three receptions for 48 yards and his first-career receiving score on four targets.

    Huddle Up: Gurley rushed for just six touchdowns in 2016, but he already has three total scores through two games this season. He has the potential to be an elite fantasy option and he is taking some big steps forward toward realizing that potential this season. The Rams meet the 49ers on the road Thursday in Week 3.

  • Jared Goff - QB - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 9/17/17 9:22pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff completed 15 of his 25 pass attempts for 224 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 2 game against the Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Goff took a step backward in this one after throttling the Colts in the opener. Still, the No. 1 overall pick looked lost in 2016, but he has really made some strides and will continue to improve as the team adds talent around him. He faces a short week before the team travels to San Francisco on Thursday in Week 3.

  • Pierre Garcon - WR - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 9/17/17 9:05pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon finished with three catches for 26 yards in a 12-9 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Garcon actually led the team in receiving for the second week in a row, and he is the closest thing San Francisco has to a dependable option in the passing game. He is a matchup-dependent play, but he has WR3 potential against the Rams in Week 3, especially in PPR formats.
