Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Jordan Matthews - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 12/5/16 9:52am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (ankle) should return to practice Wednesday, Dec. 7, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

    Huddle Up: On a day in which Carson Wentz completed 36 passes, receivers accounted for only 14 catches. The Eagles' top receiver in its blowout loss to the Cincinnati Bengals was undrafted rookie free agent Paul Turner, which should provide plenty of insight into the current state of the position in Philadelphia. Turner would be a desperation play at best in Week 14 against the Washington Redskins should Matthews not play, but it appears as if he'll have a shot. Matthews will be a low-end WR3 for that game if he can go.

  • Thomas Rawls - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 12/5/16 5:20am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls had 15 rushes for 106 yards and two touchdowns Sunday, Dec. 5, against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: The line would have been bigger if he weren't checked out for a concussion. It was an encouraging sight after Rawls was largely ineffective in four previous games. He returns to the low-end RB1 range Week 14 against the Green Bay Packers.

  • Cameron Brate - TE - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 12/5/16 5:17am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate had a game-high six catches for 86 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 Sunday, Dec. 5.

    Huddle Up: Brate has averaged six targets per game over the last five games, and he has three touchdowns in that time. He has worked his way into the low-end TE1 mix, but he's not a sure thing.

  • Doug Martin - RB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 12/5/16 5:16am ET

    Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (undisclosed) came out of the game OK, Sunday, Dec. 5, according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

    Huddle Up: Martin struggled with 17 rushes for 45 yards but salvaged his day with a touchdown in Week 13. The New Orleans Saints have been better against RBs of late, but Martin will be a strong RB2 next week.

  • Kirk Cousins - QB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 12/4/16 11:58pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins was 21-for-37 for 271 yards, one touchdown and one interception in a 31-23 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

    Huddle Up: Cousins has a feisty spirit and attitude, and it translates to the football field. The Arizona defense was just one step ahead of Cousins in this game. Cousins still rates as a QB1 down the stretch.

  • Antonio Brown - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 12/4/16 11:02pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown racked up six receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the New York Giants. He was targeted seven times.

    Huddle Up: Brown was outshined by his friend Antonio Brown, but his team also came away with the win and Brown visited the end zone. He will face a tough pass defense in Week 14 against the Buffalo Bills, but remains a must-start in all fantasy formats.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 12/4/16 11:02pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed 29 times for 118 yards in the Week 13 game against the New York Giants, and he added six catches for 64 yards on seven targets. He has three straight 100-yard rushing performances for the first time in his career.

    Huddle Up: Bell continues to carry fantasy owners down the stretch and into the playoffs. He will look for another big stat line in Week 14 against a Buffalo Bills rush defense which allowed a pair of rushing scores to Latavius Murray of the Raiders.

  • Ladarius Green - TE - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 12/4/16 11:01pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green posted six receptions for 110 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the New York Giants. 'I'm not close to where I thought I would be, but I'm getting closer,' Green said Sunday, Dec. 4. 'I'm building a little more confidence every game.'

    Huddle Up: Green was targeted 11 times, and it was a combination of Green getting better in the offense, healthier and the Giants not paying much mind to opposing tight ends. He is worth adding in all fantasy leagues in Week 14, especially if you continue to search for a replacement for someone like Rob Gronkowski.

  • Rashad Jennings - RB - New York Giants
    Posted 12/4/16 11:00pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings rushed six times for just 19 yards in the Week 13 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He added six catches for 34 yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Jennings has been underwhelming this season and remains nothing more than a RB3. If rookie Paul Perkins could catch out of the backfield, he would likely surpass Jennings on the depth chart.

  • Sterling Shepard - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 12/4/16 10:59pm ET

    New York Giants rookie WR Sterling Shepard posted four grabs for 21 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was targeted eight times.

    Huddle Up: Shepard has found the end zone at least once in four of his past five games. He hasn't been racking up a ton of yardage, but he has been a boon to fantasy owners in TD-only leagues especially.

  • Odell Beckham Jr. - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 12/4/16 10:59pm ET

    New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. posted 10 receptions for 100 yards in the Week 13 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was targeted a game-high 16 times.

    Huddle Up: Beckham won the statistical battle against friend Antonio Brown, but his pal ended up with a touchdown and a victory. Beckham will look for another big stat performance in Week 14 against the Dallas Cowboys in a primetime game.

  • Eli Manning - QB - New York Giants
    Posted 12/4/16 10:58pm ET

    New York Giants QB Eli Manning completed 24 of his 39 pass attempts for 195 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 13 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Manning has at least two interceptions in four of his past seven outings. Despite that, he also has two or more touchdown passes in each of his past five games, totaling 14 TDs during the span. He remains a fantasy must-start option heading into Week 14 against the Dallas Cowboys.

  • Amari Cooper - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 12/4/16 10:40pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper posted two catches for 59 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Buffalo Bills. He was targeted four times.

    Huddle Up: If not for the stat line salvaging 37-yard touchdown in the second half, Cooper's performance was mostly underwhelming. He'll look to get back on track in Week 14 against the Kansas City Chiefs Thursday.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 12/4/16 10:39pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (finger) racked up seven receptions for 74 yards with a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Buffalo Bills. He was targeted 11 times. Crabtree left the game briefly to have his left ring finger popped back into place.

    Huddle Up: Crabtree returned to the game with his ring finger and pinkie taped together, and he did not skip a beat. He remains a must-start fantasy option in all leagues heading into Week 14 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

  • Latavius Murray - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 12/4/16 10:39pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (ankle) rushed 20 times for 82 yards with a pair of scores in the Week 13 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He also had three catches for 23 yards to give him over 100 total yards from scrimmage.

    Huddle Up: Murray was a question mark this week with an ankle injury, but he showed no ill-effects of that ailment. He has eight rushing scores over the past six games, and 11 touchdowns in 10 outings. He remains a solid low-end RB1 or must-start RB2 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 14 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

  • Derek Carr - QB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 12/4/16 10:38pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (finger) completed 19 of his 35 pass attempts for 260 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 13 game against the Buffalo Bills. He also ran twice for four yards.

    Huddle Up: Carr did not show any ill-effects from the finger injury he suffered last week. He remains a fantasy must-have in all leagues heading into Week 14 against the Kansas City Chiefs Thursday night, although with sub-freezing temperatures the offense could take a while to warm up.

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/4/16 10:37pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins managed just three receptions for 38 yards in the Week 13 game against the Oakland Raiders. He was targeted a team-high nine times.

    Huddle Up: It was a disappointing performance considering how poor the Raiders pass defense has been. Watkins will look to rebound in Week 14 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

  • LeSean McCoy - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/4/16 10:36pm ET

    Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (undisclosed) was able to return to the Week 13 game against the Oakland Raiders after leaving with an undisclosed injury, and he finished strong. He ended up with 17 carries for 130 yards and seven receptions for 61 yards, both team highs.

    Huddle Up: McCoy remains a RB1 in all fantasy formats as long as he can stay healthy. Lately that has been the only concern using Shady on a regular basis.

  • Mike Gillislee - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/4/16 10:36pm ET

    Buffalo Bills RB Mike Gillislee rushed eight times for 49 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 13 game against the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: Gillislee can handle the tailback duties if LeSean McCoy should go down again, but he left this game and was able to return. Gillislee is nothing more than a RB3 option heading into Week 14 despite the two scores.

  • Tyrod Taylor - QB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/4/16 10:35pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor completed 18 of his 35 pass attempts for 191 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in the Week 13 game against the Oakland Raiders. He rushed three times for 30 yards and a score, too.

    Huddle Up: The passing performance was disappointing considering how leaky the Oakland pass defense has been this season. Taylor remains more of a QB2 in most fantasy formats heading into Week 14.
