Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Paul Richardson - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/14/18 1:44pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson managed three receptions for 31 yards and a touchdown on five targets in Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Richardson was the best of the lot for the Redskins wide receivers with Jamison Crowder out with an injury and all of his fellow wideouts struggling. The best news is that he didn't appear to have any setbacks with his knee or shoulder issues. The Redskins host the Cowboys in Week 7.

  • Keenan Allen - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 10/14/18 1:42pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen caught four passes for 62 yards against the Cleveland Browns in Week 6. He also rushed for 41 yards on four carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Allen saw a season-low six targets against the Browns but was involved in the running game in addition to the passing game. He should be a weekly starting option in all leagues and can be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 receiver in all leagues.

  • Vernon Davis - TE - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/14/18 1:39pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Vernon Davis posted three grabs for a team-best 48 yards and a touchdown on his three targets in Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Jordan Reed made it through the entire game, but Davis factored in with the wideouts banged up. Despite the decent stat line he is still only worth a look in the deepest of fantasy leagues heading into Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys.

  • Tyrell Williams - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 10/14/18 1:37pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Tyrell Williams caught three passes for 118 yards and two touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Williams has been fairly quiet this season but had a breakout performance this week. He has been targeted five times or less in every game this season but could be at least a flex option next week against the Tennessee Titans.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/14/18 1:36pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle, knee, shoulder) not only played in Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers, but he played well with 97 rushing yards on 17 carries.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy owners might be a little disappointed that he just missed potential bonuses for 100 yards and he didn't have a score, but be happy he didn't have any setbacks with his myriad of nagging injuries. The Redskins will be back in action in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys.

  • Alex Smith - QB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/14/18 1:32pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith completed 21-of-36 passes for 163 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 6 win against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Smith had a season-low in passing yardage, but he has managed a total of four touchdowns over his past two home games. He remains more of a QB2 heading into Week 7, especially against a sturdy defense like the Dallas Cowboys coming into town next Sunday.

  • Austin Ekeler - RB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 10/14/18 1:32pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler rushed for 60 yards on seven carries against the Cleveland Browns in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Ekeler was not involved in the passing game this week but was still able to post solid numbers for fantasy owners. He should continue to be a flex option against most opponents.

  • Greg Olsen - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 10/14/18 1:28pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) returned with four catches and 48 yards on seven targets in Week 6 against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Olsen made it through the game without any setbacks, and that's the most important happening of the day. It appears safe to plug him back into the active fantasy lineup in Week 7 in Philadelphia if you hadn't done so already.

  • Torrey Smith - WR - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 10/14/18 1:25pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Torrey Smith registered five grabs for 43 yards and a touchdown on five targets in Week 6 against the Washington Redskins and he had a two-point conversion reception.

    Huddle Up: Smith is trying to hold off D.J. Moore for the No. 2 job behind Devin Funchess, and he might have gotten a reprieve in the battle with Moore putting the ball on the turf not once, but twice. For now, the veteran Smith is best used as a low-end WR4 in most fantasy leagues. He'll get a crack at his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles, in Week 7.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 10/14/18 1:25pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon rushed for 132 yards and three touchdowns on 18 carries against the Cleveland Browns in Week 6. He also caught two passes for 18 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Gordon posted his second 100-yard rushing performance of the season and has at least one touchdown in each of the last five games. He should have some success against the Tennessee Titans next week and can be at least a No. 2 fantasy running back.

  • Philip Rivers - QB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 10/14/18 1:24pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers went 11-for-20 for 207 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the Cleveland Browns in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Rivers has thrown at least two touchdowns in every game this season but was not asked to do a lot in this game. He will be facing the Tennessee Titans in London next week and should continue to be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.

  • D.J. Moore - WR - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 10/14/18 1:22pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore posted four receptions for 59 yards on five targets in Week 6 against the Washington Redskins, but he also lost a pair of fumbles.

    Huddle Up: Moore is battling Torrey Smith for the No. 2 duties behind Devin Funchess in Carolina. Moore has racked up eight receptions for 108 yards on nine targets over the past two games, but he'll need to hang onto the ball if he wants to see a larger role and be a useful fantasy option.

  • Devin Funchess - WR - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 10/14/18 1:19pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess racked up five receptions for a game-high 74 yards on eight targets in Week 6 against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Funchess has racked up three or more receptions in each of his five outings, and he has found the end zone twice in the past three contests. He isn't a top-notch fantasy option, but he posts consistent enough production for a WR3 in most fantasy leagues. The Panthers meet the Eagles in Philadelphia in Week 7.

  • Christian McCaffrey - RB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 10/14/18 1:17pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed eight times for 20 yards in Week 6 against the Washington Redskins while adding seven grabs for 46 yards on eight targets.

    Huddle Up: The Panthers aren't going to be very successful when Cam Newton is the leading rusher. CMC averaged just 2.5 yards per carry and that's simply not going to get it done. The Panthers face another tough matchup on the road in Week 7 against the Eagles.

  • Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 10/14/18 1:13pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 27-of-40 passes for 275 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Week 6 against the Washington Redskins and he rushed for a team-best 43 yards on nine carries while also completing a pass for a two-point conversion.

    Huddle Up: Newton nearly rallied the troops, but they came up just short in the 23-17 loss. The good news for fantasy owners is that he threw at least two touchdowns for the fourth consecutive outing. They'll be on the road against another NFC East foe, the Philadelphia Eagles, in Week 7.

  • Ryan Grant - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 10/14/18 12:58pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR Ryan Grant (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the Week 6 game and has been ruled out.

    Huddle Up: Grant will join a long list of injuries for the Colts. Owners should know more about Grant's status in the next day or two.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 10/14/18 12:23pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hip) suffered a hip injury during the Week 6 game and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has been playing very well this season, so any missed time would hurt fantasy owners. The Falcons should update his status in the next day or two.

  • Quincy Enunwa - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 10/14/18 12:13pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (ankle) will not return to the Week 6 game because of an ankle injury.

    Huddle Up: Enunwa's status likely will be updated in the next day or two, so owners should monitor the situation. Terrelle Pryor could see more work if Enunwa misses any time but would not be a must-start option.

  • Josh Allen - QB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 10/14/18 12:12pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen (elbow) left the Week 6 game early because of an elbow injury. He is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Allen will miss any additional time because of the injury. He has played well at times since taking over the job but should only be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

  • Calvin Ridley - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 10/14/18 11:48am ET

    Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (ankle) will not return to the Week 6 game because of his ankle injury.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to look for an update on Ridley after the game or in the next day or two. He has been a solid fantasy option so far this season but could be sidelined because of the injury.
