Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Martellus Bennett - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/27/16 10:56pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett posted three receptions for 22 yards in the Week 12 game against the New York Jets. He was targeted five times.

    Huddle Up: Bennett's stat line was disappointing for the second straight game, especially after Rob Gronkowski left the game early and Bennett had all the targets at tight end to himself. He remains more of a TE2 heading into Week 13 against the Rams.

  • Malcolm Mitchell - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/27/16 10:55pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell posted five receptions for 42 yards with two touchdowns on seven targets in the Week 12 game against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: Mitchell is gaining the trust of Tom Brady and is worth a look if he is still available off the waiver wire. He can be trusted as a WR4 in most fantasy leagues in Week 13 against the Rams.

  • Tom Brady - QB - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/27/16 10:54pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (knee) picked up his 200th career win in the Week 12 game against the New York Jets, and he also surpassed the 60,000-yard mark for his career. He is the fourth quarterback to reach the plateau. He finished with 30 completions on 50 attempts for 286 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions.

    Huddle Up: Brady was clearly not 100 percent and without Rob Gronkowski for a majority of the game, but he still persevered. He remains a must-start fantasy option through thick and thin. In Week 13 he'll face a Los Angeles Rams pass defense which was trampled in their game in New Orleans.

  • Clive Walford - TE - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 11/27/16 10:43pm ET

    Oakland Raiders TE Clive Walford posted three receptions for 43 yards and a touchdown in the Week 12 game against the Carolina Panthers. He was targeted four times.

    Huddle Up: Walford reached the end zone for the first time since Week 2. He has at least two catches in each of his past four games, and is more of a TE2 heading into Week 13 against the Buffalo Bills. His 43 yards were his second-highest total of the season.

  • Amari Cooper - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 11/27/16 10:42pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper posted four receptions for just 22 yards on seven targets in the Week 12 game against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: It was a brutally disappointing stat line for Cooper and his fantasy owners against a poor Carolina pass defense, especially in a game where his offense scored 35 points with most of the production through the air. He'll look to rebound in Week 13 against the Buffalo Bills.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 11/27/16 10:42pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (ankle) posted eight receptions for 110 yards in the Week 12 game against the Carolina Panthers. He was targeted a game-high 13 times.

    Huddle Up: Crabtree was listed as questionable with an ankle injury. He rebounded rather nicely after being limited to five yards last week. He remains a low-end WR1 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 13 despite a couple of stinkers in the previous two games.

  • Latavius Murray - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 11/27/16 10:41pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (toe) rushed 19 times for 45 yards and a touchdown in the Week 12 game against the Carolina Panthers, and he added three receptions for 43 yards on four targets.

    Huddle Up: Murray did not seem to be hindered by a toe injury which had him listed on the injury report. He has scored six rushing touchdowns over the past five games and has re-emerged as a must-play RB2 in all formats heading into Week 13.

  • Derek Carr - QB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 11/27/16 10:40pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (finger) completed 26 of his 38 pass attempts for 315 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Week 12 game against the Carolina Panthers. He was able to return and finish the game after suffering a pinkie injury to his right hand.

    Huddle Up: Carr was wearing a glove on his injured throwing hand upon returning, and looked sharp leading the rally to another win. It's likely the injury will not hinder him heading into Week 13 against the Buffalo Bills, although their pass defense might cause more problems for him than Carolina's leaky pass D.

  • Greg Olsen - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 11/27/16 10:40pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen managed just four receptions for 45 yards on five targets in the Week 12 game against the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: Olsen's fantasy line was rather disappointing considering how poor the Raiders pass defense has been. He'll look to rebound in Week 13 on the road in Seattle, but it might be tough sledding against a much tougher pass D.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 11/27/16 10:39pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin posted two receptions for 53 yards in the Week 12 game against the Oakland Raiders, including a 44-yard touchdown in the second half. He was targeted six times.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin stomped off the field, threw his helmet and berated a coach in the second half after apparently being pulled. However, he regrouped and salvaged his stat line with a long touchdown in the final quarter. He remains more of a low-end WR2 heading into Week 13 at Seattle.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 11/27/16 10:39pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Ted Ginn Jr. rolled up four receptions for 115 yards in the Week 12 game against the Oakland Raiders, including an 88-yard touchdown in the second half.

    Huddle Up: Ginn has touchdowns in back-to-back outings after being blanked in the first nine games. His previous yardage high was 62 yards back in Week 3, so temper expectations going forward. He remains more of a WR4 heading into Week 13 on the road against the Seattle Seahawks.

  • Jonathan Stewart - RB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 11/27/16 10:37pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart rushed 17 times for 96 yards with two touchdowns in the Week 12 game against the Oakland Raiders. He was targeted once in the pass game and he did not have a catch.

    Huddle Up: Stewart just missed on 100 total yards from scrimmage, but he still had a productive day for his fantasy owners. He will have a difficult matchup on the road against the Seattle Seahawks on the road in Week 13, but he can still be trusted as a low-end RB2 in most fantasy leagues.

  • Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 11/27/16 10:06pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 14 of his 28 pass attempts for 246 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Week 12 game against the Oakland Raiders. He also rushed three times for six yards and a score.

    Huddle Up: Newton has struggled by his standards, but he remains a must-start in all fantasy leagues for his ability with his arm and his legs. He has a tough matchup in Week 14 at Seattle, however.

  • Will Fuller - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 11/27/16 10:05pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller posted four receptions for 60 yards on six targets in the Week 12 game against the San Diego Chargers.

    Huddle Up: Fuller didn't have a great game, but that could all change in Week 13 against a beaten up Green Bay Packers secondary. Treat him as more of a WR3 for that matchup.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 11/27/16 10:05pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins posted five receptions for 70 yards on 10 targets in the Week 12 game against the San Diego Chargers.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins hasn't found the end zone in six games dating back to Week 5 in Minnesota, but the yardage total was his most since Week 6 and his third-highest total of the season. He has settled into more of a WR2 role for fantasy owners down the stretch, although he faces a favorable matchup in Week 13 against a beleaguered Green Bay pass defense.

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 11/27/16 10:04pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed 19 times for 57 yards in the Week 12 game against the San Diego Chargers and he had three receptions for 18 yards on four targets.

    Huddle Up: Miller will look to bounce back in Week 13 in Green Bay. While they have a strong rush defense, they're susceptible to the big play via the pass. Miller could have a big game catching the ball out of the backfield.

  • Brock Osweiler - QB - Houston Texans
    Posted 11/27/16 10:04pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler completed 22 of his 37 pass attempts for 246 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions in the Week 12 game against the San Diego Chargers. He also ran three times for 23 yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Osweiler continues to make plenty of mistakes and this game resulted in a season-low 45.5 QB Rating. He cannot be trusted in fantasy leagues outside of formats requiring two starting signal callers.

  • Travis Benjamin - WR - San Diego Chargers
    Posted 11/27/16 9:21pm ET

    San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) was active for the Week 12 game against the Houston Texans, but he was limited to one grab for eight yards on two targets.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin didn't do much, and perhaps he was dealing with ill-effects of his injury. He could factor in more prominently in Week 14 with Tyrell Williams leaving the game early.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB - San Diego Chargers
    Posted 11/27/16 9:21pm ET

    San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon rushed 17 times for 70 yards in the Week 12 game against the Houston Texans. He added four receptions for 19 yards on his four targets. Gordon is 92 yards shy of reaching 1,000 yards for the first time. The last time the team had a 1,000-yard runner was RB Ryan Mathews in 2013.

    Huddle Up: Gordon has emerged as a must-start fantasy option this season, and is on track to be a slam-dunk first round pick across all fantasy formats in 2017.

  • Antonio Gates - TE - San Diego Chargers
    Posted 11/27/16 9:20pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates did not have any catches and he was not even targeted in the Week 12 game against the Houston Texans, snapping his 77-game streak with at least one reception.

    Huddle Up: It was an ugly goose egg for fantasy owners relying upon Gates as a low-end TE1. There was no report of any injury, but if an update comes out we'll have it for you. He'll look to rebound in Week 14.
