Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • C.J. Spiller - RB - Free Agent
    Posted 9/28/16 7:56pm ET

    The Seattle Seahawks agreed to terms with free-agent RB C.J. Spiller (Saints) Wednesday, Sept. 28, according to a source. The deal is for one year.

    Huddle Up: Spiller has plenty of speed in the open field, but Spiller has yet to reach his potential in previous stops in Buffalo and New Orleans. If he can stay healthy, he could emerge as a useful fantasy option in Seattle, but he isn't worth rostering just yet.

  • Ezekiel Elliott - RB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 9/28/16 7:55pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott said Wednesday, Sept. 28, that he is feeling 'way more comfortable' in the team's offense than he did back in his debut. 'I'm a very improved player since Week 1,' Elliott said.

    Huddle Up: Elliott has looked a lot better, and he shined in the primetime game against the Chicago Bears in Week 3, rolling for 140 yards (his first 100-yard game) and also a career-best 20 receiving yards. As long as he can nip his fumbling issues in the bud, he will be a legitimate RB1 in fantasy leagues for many years to come.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/28/16 6:54pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) told reporters that he has 'no setbacks' in his debut in Week 3 against the Houston Texans. He said he was sore, but he felt fine. 'I felt good,' he said Wednesday, Sept. 28. And he said he always feels sore after playing a game, 'whether you play 10 plays or you play 70.' He added the team is being careful with the injury, and hamstrings in particular can be tricky so you cannot 'hop right in, and go 100 percent.'

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski has had a few extra days since last Thursday's game for treatment and to mend, so fantasy owners can expect a much bigger impact in Week 4. He has shredded Buffalo in the past, but there is uncertainty at the quarterback position in Foxboro, so Gronk might not start to hit his stride until Week 5 when Tom Brady is due back from suspension.

  • Michael Floyd - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/28/16 6:52pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (concussion) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28, as he recovers from a concussion.

    Huddle Up: Floyd's status for Week 4 against the Rams is up in the air. If he cannot play it would be good news for Larry Fitzgerald and John Brown, who would see a bump in targets. It's just mid-week, however, so don't write off Floyd just yet.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/28/16 6:51pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) was listed as a full participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Fitzgerald appears to be good to go for the Week 4 game against the Rams in Glendale. Los Angeles ranks 17th in the league against the pass, allowing 266.0 yards per game with four passing scores allowed through three games. Treat Fitz as a low-end WR2 heading into Week 4 in most fantasy leagues.

  • Jamaal Charles - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/28/16 5:48pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Charles may have a chance to play in Week 4 but more will be known about his status later in the week. He probably would be eased back into the offense, which will make him a risky option for owners. Owners may want to see Charles play in a game before using him in their lineups.

  • Charcandrick West - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/28/16 5:38pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: West's status will be known later in the week, so owners will need to monitor the situation. West likely would receive limited playing time if he is active for the game but could be a flex option for owners.

  • Steve Smith - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 9/28/16 5:15pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Smith should be fine for the team's Week 4 game and should have a big role in the passing game. His receiving yards have improved in each of the last two games and should be an attractive option for owners in all leagues because of the matchup.

  • Torrey Smith - WR - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 9/28/16 5:09pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith (foot) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Smith should be able to play in Week 4 and probably will be a focal point in the passing game. Smith should have value in deeper leagues as a flex option, but he can probably be avoided in most leagues.

  • Vance McDonald - TE - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 9/28/16 5:07pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald (hip) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check on McDonald's status later in the week to see if he has a chance to play in Week 4. Garrett Celek may start if McDonald is ruled out, but he is not a strong fantasy option.

  • Dez Bryant - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 9/28/16 5:00pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Bryant is dealing with a hairline fracture in his knee and is considered questionable for Week 4. Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation during the week. He will be a risky option if he is active for the game, and owners should have other options ready if Bryant is ruled out.

  • Russell Wilson - QB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/28/16 4:55pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (ankle, knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Wilson is on track to play in Week 4 but likely will be limited in terms of his running ability, which will hurt his fantasy value. Wilson can still be a starting option in some leagues, but owners with better options at the position could consider benching Wilson this week.

  • Tyler Lockett - WR - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/28/16 4:52pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Lockett should be able to play in Week 4, but owners should check on his status later in the week. He was not targeted during the team's Week 3 game but should be more involved this week. Lockett could be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in leagues.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/28/16 4:42pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Graham recorded 100 yards in the team's Week 3 game and may be on his way back to being a No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues again. Owners may want to see him play well again before using him in their lineups, but he could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

  • Brandon Marshall - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 9/28/16 4:34pm ET

    New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall (foot, knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Marshall is on track to play in Week 4 and should receive a decent amount of targets during the game. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in most leagues since he will be facing one of the better defenses in the NFL.

  • Matt Forte - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 9/28/16 4:27pm ET

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Forte saw a small dip in his production in Week 3 but will continue to receive most of the work at running back. He will be facing a tough Seattle Seahawks defense but should still be a decent No. 2 running back for owners.

  • Isaiah Crowell - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/28/16 4:15pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Crowell has received at least 15 carries in each of the last two games and has rushed for 212 yards and one touchdown during that span. He should continue to receive most of the carries in the running game and can be a No. 2 running back or a flex option for owners.

  • Charles Clay - TE - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/28/16 3:53pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been taking Wednesdays off lately and should be on track for the team's Week 4 game. He was held off the stat sheet in Week 3 and probably can be avoided in most leagues especially against a tough New England Patriots defense.

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/28/16 3:47pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Watkins has been dealing with the injury since training camp and is expected to test out the foot later in the week. Owners should keep an eye on the situation but may want to avoid Watkins even if he plays because he may be limited by the injury.

  • Willie Snead - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 9/28/16 3:33pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Snead was not able to play in the last game because of the injury, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation. Snead is a main part of the passing game when he is healthy and can be a starting option for owners if he is active for the game.
