Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Chad Williams - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 11/9/18 9:54am ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Chad Williams (ankle) missed a third straight day of practice Friday, Nov. 9, with an ankle injury.

    Huddle Up: With only 11 catches for 113 yards and a TD in eight games, you probably weren't using Williams anyway, but it looks like he'll miss his first game of the season after not practicing all week coming off the bye.

  • Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 11/9/18 9:54am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette was able to get through a week of practice with no setbacks to his hamstring injury and was taken off the Week 10 injury report.

    Huddle Up: It appears as if it is now or never for Fournette, who has yet to finish the game this season. With that said, he is the focal point of the Jacksonville offense and needs to be inserted back into fantasy lineups. There's a good chance the Jaguars choose to ease him back into action after adding Carlos Hyde a few weeks ago, but Fournette can deliver RB1 production if he is given anything close to a full workload. His matchup against the Indianapolis Colts this weekend is far from daunting.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 11/9/18 9:42am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee) on Friday, Nov. 9, was listed as questionable for Week 10 with a knee injury but is expected to play.

    Huddle Up: One of the few Bengals trending in the right health direction, Bernard is expected back after being sidelined since Week 4, but there is real question on how many snaps he'll be able to handle spelling Joe Mixon. Aside from a deep-league emergency, keep Bernard benched until we see what his workload will be.

  • Robby Anderson - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 11/9/18 9:40am ET

    New York Jets QB Sam Darnold (foot) and WR Robby Anderson (ankle) are listed as doubtful for Week 10 against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: Darnold has not been playing well enough of late to be worth fantasy consideration, even in two-quarterback leagues. Anderson might have been worth a start given the connection he showed with Josh McCown last year, but his injury erases any sleeper appeal there.

  • Charles Clay - TE - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 11/9/18 9:10am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (hamstring) on Friday, Nov. 9, was ruled out for the team's Week 10 game against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: For those in deep leagues were using the struggling Clay, you'll need to scrape the bottom of the barrel for another option this week.

  • Chris Ivory - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 11/9/18 8:04am ET

    Buffalo Bills RB Chris Ivory (shoulder) will be limited in practice Friday, Nov. 9.

    Huddle Up: Ivory offers very little upside and shouldn't be played against the New York Jets.

  • Randall Cobb - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 11/9/18 8:03am ET

    Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (hamstring) is still bothered by the hamstring injury he suffered early in the season.

    Huddle Up: Cobb has been catching a lot of short passes, and he's seeing nearly eight targets per game. He just isn't doing much with them. If he's able to go, and that's no guarantee since he's such a slow healer, he's a flex consideration in PPR only against the Miami Dolphins.

  • Josh Allen - QB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 11/9/18 7:32am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen (elbow) will be limited in practice Friday, Nov. 9.

    Huddle Up: It looks like Nathan Peterman this week against the New York Jets. He threw 49 times and amassed 188 yards and three picks last week. Stay far away.

  • James Conner - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 11/8/18 10:15pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (concussion) has been placed in the NFL's concussion protocol, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

    Huddle Up: While it's never a good thing for a player to suffer a concussion, the silver lining here is that Conner will get a few extra days to recover. The injury is sure to amplify interest in the potential return of Le'Veon Bell, who must report by this coming Tuesday or miss the season entirely, and could affect any possible plans to ease Bell into action (should he report). Stay tuned.

  • Greg Olsen - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 11/8/18 9:54pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen caught four passes for 40 yards during the team's Week 10 loss to the Carolina Panthers. He was targeted six times.

    Huddle Up: It was a bad night for everyone in Carolina not named McCaffrey, and that included Olsen, who went without a touchdown for the first time since Oct. 14 against the Redskins. No need to dwell on it. Olsen remains a TE1 and should have ample opportunities to make plays against the Detroit Lions in Week 11.

  • Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 11/8/18 9:23pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 23 of 29 passes for 193 yards, 2 touchdowns and an interception during the team's 52-21 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday, Nov. 8. He also ran twice for 10 yards.

    Huddle Up: While Newton's final numbers aren't bad, he set the tone for the blowout with a terrible interception that was returned for a touchdown and could never stem the tide as Pittsburgh rolled over Carolina on TNF. He'll have extra time to regroup before playing a Detroit Lions team of questionable ability in Week 11, which could provide a nice opportunity to bounce back.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 11/8/18 9:03pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is expected to report to the team next week, according to team president Art Rooney II.

    Huddle Up: Speculation has been flying hot and heavy this week, but this is the team president talking, and though he stops short of explicitly saying Bell will report next week, he says more than once that he "expects" Bell to be there. As has been noted, Bell must report by Tuesday, Nov. 13, or he forfeits the 2018 season so all will be clear by then. In the off chance he's been discarded in your league, scoop him up post-haste.

  • Devin Funchess - WR - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 11/8/18 8:31pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess caught three of his five targets for 32 yards in a 52-21 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Funchess has now been held below 50 receiving yards in three straight games, and he has just 13 targets over that span. He's the closest thing Carolina has to a No. 1 receiver, but he is only a WR3 option for fantasy purposes.

  • Christian McCaffrey - RB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 11/8/18 8:21pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed 14 times for 77 yards and touchdown and caught five passes for 61 yards and two touchdowns in a 52-21 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 10.

    Huddle Up: After scoring just once in the first six games, McCaffrey has seven scores in his last last three games. Throw in the fact that he is flirting with a 100-catch pace, and he has put himself in the RB1 mix in PPR formats.

  • Antonio Brown - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 11/8/18 8:17pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown caught all six of his targets for 96 yards and a touchdown in a 52-21 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 10, and he has scored in eight of his nine games this season.

    Huddle Up: Brown's yardage totals have been a little lackluster by his standards, but he is making up for it with frequent trips to the end zone. He's still delivering WR1 production.

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 11/8/18 8:13pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster caught three of his five targets for 90 yards, including a 75-yard touchdown, and added a 13-yard run in a 52-21 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster has been a little more inconsistent in recent weeks, but he offers WR2 upside on a weekly basis.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 11/8/18 8:11pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 22 of his 25 passes for 328 yards and five touchdowns in a 52-21 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Roethlisberger and company overwhelmed Carolina, and he remains on pace to have the best season of his career. He's entrenched as a QB1 heading into a Week 11 matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

  • James Conner - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 11/8/18 7:44pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (concussion) exited against the Carolina Panthers in Week 10 and was taken to the locker room to be evaluated for a concussion. He had 13 carries for 65 yards and a touchdown and one catch for eight yards before exiting.

    Huddle Up: With Pittsburgh dismantling the Panthers, Conner's night is likely over regardless of the results of his evaluation. Going forward the potential return of Le'Veon Bell is going to have more of an impact on his value than a possible concussion.

  • Rashaad Penny - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 11/8/18 7:08pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny needs to be 'more involved,' according to head coach Pete Carroll, and Carroll thinks it is only 'a matter of time' before Penny starts to contribute more.

    Huddle Up: Penny currently sits behind Chris Carson and Mike Davis in the running back pecking order. The Seahawks won't give up on a the first-round pick, but he might have to wait until next season to have a chance at leading the backfield. He's a still a must-own player in dynasty formats.

  • Dak Prescott - QB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 11/8/18 6:56pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott recorded multiple turnovers in a game for the 10th time in the last two seasons in the team's loss Monday, Nov. 5, against the Tennessee Titans. That's tied for the most such occurrences within that span alongside Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr, Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston and Green Bay Packers QB DeShone Kizer.

    Huddle Up: Prescott's stock has dropped dramatically since his terrific rookie campaign a few years ago. One of the main indicators of that has been the increase in the amount of times he turns the ball over, something he rarely would do in his freshman campaign. It's safe to say he's not a reliable QB1 right now, though the addition of Amari Cooper figures to help give him a boost again.
