Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Brian Hoyer - QB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 9/17/17 9:00pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Brian Hoyer completed 15 of his 27 pass attempts for 99 yards and an interception in a 12-9 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: It has been a rough start to the year for Hoyer, albeit against two strong defenses. He will try to find a rhythm against the Rams in Week 3, but he is no more than a desperation QB2 at this point.

  • Tyler Lockett - WR - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/17/17 8:53pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett finished with six catches for 64 yards in a 12-9 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Lockett bounced back a bit after a one-catch performance in the opener, but the Seattle offense remains out of sync overall. Lockett is worth owning in most formats, but he would be a risky start in Week 3 against the Titans.

  • Terrance Williams - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 9/17/17 8:48pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Terrance Williams hauled in four balls in Week 2 against the Broncos, but he managed just 17 yards on his five targets.

    Huddle Up: Williams led the way in Week 1 against the Giants, but his statistics reflected his status on the depth chart better in this one. He is the fourth option in the pass game behind Dez Bryant, Cole Beasley and Jason Witten, and perhaps even fifth behind Ezekiel Elliott. The Cowboys meet the Cardinals in Week 3 on Monday night. Williams is nothing more than a WR5 at this point in most fantasy formats.

  • Cole Beasley - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 9/17/17 8:47pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley racked up four receptions for 33 yards on eight targets in Week 2 against the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: Beasley is a solid slot receiver and nice WR3/4 in PPR fantasy formats, although the Dallas pass game was mostly shut down early on. Beasley will look for better results in Week 3 against the Cardinals on the road Monday night.

  • Dez Bryant - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 9/17/17 8:46pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant racked up seven receptions for 59 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Broncos and he was targeted a game-high 16 times.

    Huddle Up: Dak Prescott tried to find Bryant frequently, but Aqib Talib and the Denver secondary did a fairly decent job of keeping Bryant from making a difference when the game was still close. He'll look to find the end zone again in Week 3 at Arizona on Monday Night Football.

  • Jason Witten - TE - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 9/17/17 8:45pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten posted game highs with 10 catches and 97 yards in Week 2 at Denver and he scored a touchdown with 13 targets.

    Huddle Up: Dak Prescott was looking Witten's way early and often, as the tight end benefited from a lopsided score in the second half with a heavy workload and no runs. He is off to a great start for fantasy owners through two games. He'll try to keep it rolling in Week 3 at Arizona on Monday Night Football.

  • Ezekiel Elliott - RB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 9/17/17 8:45pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott ran nine times for just eight yards in Week 2 against the Denver Broncos and he added four receptions for 14 yards on five targets.

    Huddle Up: Elliott was bottled up by the sturdy Denver defense, with his longest run going for just five yards. He'll try to get on track in Week 3 in Arizona under the lights on Monday night.

  • Dak Prescott - QB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 9/17/17 8:44pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 30 of his 50 pass attempts for 238 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 2 game against the Broncos. He also rushed three times for a team-high 24 yards.

    Huddle Up: The fact Prescott led the team in rushing tells you a little bit about how things went on this day, even if you didn't know the overall result. It was a grind against the stout Denver D. The Cowboys will look for better results in Week 3 in Arizona on Monday Night Football.

  • Emmanuel Sanders - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 9/17/17 8:44pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders posted six receptions for 62 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Week 1 against Dallas on eight targets.

    Huddle Up: Sanders had a big game thanks to a Dallas secondary missing Orlando Scandrick. Things should tighten up considerably against the Bills on the road in Week 3.

  • Demaryius Thomas - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 9/17/17 8:43pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas racked up six receptions for 71 yards on eight targets in Week 1 against the Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Thomas was working against an injury-plagued secondary and he was busy, but unfortunately it was Emmanuel Sanders with two touchdowns to none for Thomas. He'll look to re-discover the end zone in Week 3 in Buffalo.

  • Jamaal Charles - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 9/17/17 8:42pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles rushed nine times for 46 yards and he added a catch for six yards on his only target in Week 2 against the Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Cowboys has looked good when spelling C.J. Anderson through the first two games. He appears to be back to 100 percent health, and he still looks to have a little left in the tank. However, it's uncertain if his role will change once Devontae Booker is ready to return, so tread lightly.

  • C.J. Anderson - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 9/17/17 8:42pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson rushed 25 times for 118 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Dallas Cowboys and he added 36 yards on three catches with a score.

    Huddle Up: Anderson has re-emerged as a fantasy beast so far in 2017, averaging 99.5 rushing yards per game. After a torn meniscus ended his 2016 season prematurely, he appears to be fresh and better than ever. He is a must-start fantasy option heading into Week 3 in Buffalo.

  • Trevor Siemian - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 9/17/17 8:41pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian completed 22 of his 32 pass attempts for 231 yards, four touchdowns and one interception in Week 2 against the Cowboys and he also ran five times for 14 yards.

    Huddle Up: Siemian picked on a Dallas secondary missing Orlando Scandrick, using inexperienced players on the corners. He also benefited from the fact C.J. Anderson has been running hard and rolling up big numbers. He faces a tough matchup in Week 3 at Buffalo against a decent defense.

  • Carlos Hyde - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 9/17/17 8:41pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde finished with 15 carries for 124 yards and three catches for 19 yards in a 12-9 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Despite some anemic performances form the offense overall, Hyde is off to a strong start. He looks like a high-end RB2 heading into a Week 3 meeting with the Rams.

  • Chris Carson - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/17/17 8:29pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson finished with a team-high 20 carries for 93 yards and caught one pass for seven yards in a 12-9 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Carson was given a chance to lead the backfield, and he performed well. If he is still available in your league, he should be one of the top waiver targets heading into Week 3.

  • Bilal Powell - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 9/17/17 8:17pm ET

    New York Jets RB Bilal Powell finished with six carries for 13 yards and didn't record a catch in a 45-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Powell is off to a slow start, and with Matt Forte earning touches and the offense struggling, you may want to sit Powell against the Dolphins in Week 3.

  • Matt Forte - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 9/17/17 8:10pm ET

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte finished with nine carries for 53 yards and four catches for 38 yards in a 45-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Forte has remained involved as both a runner and receiver so far this year, and if he can stay healthy, he looks like a potential RB3.

  • Jermaine Kearse - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 9/17/17 8:02pm ET

    New York Jets WR Jermaine Kearse finished with four catches for 64 yards and two touchdowns in a 45-20 loss to the New York Jets in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: The Jets figure to be trailing a lot this year, and someone has to catch the ball. Kearse can a be a decent WR4.

  • Derek Carr - QB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/17/17 7:39pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 23 of his 28 pass attempts for 230 yards and three touchdowns in a 45-20 win over the New York Jets in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Carr is completing 75.0 percent of his passes and has five touchdowns and no interceptions through two games. He is looking the part of a QB1 heading into a Week 3 meeting with Washington.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/17/17 7:14pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch finished with 12 carries for 45 yards and a touchdown and one catch for four yards in a 45-20 win over the New York Jets in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Lynch wasn't needed much in a game that got out of hand, but he is the headliner in the Oakland backfield. He should be a high-end RB2 against Washington in Week 3.
