Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Baker Mayfield - QB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/21/18 5:02am ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield has yet to be named the starting quarterback by head coach Hue Jackson, who said he needed to watch game film before naming a starter.

    Huddle Up: It's a formality after Mayfield led the team to its first win in 635 days. Mayfield would be a bye-week replacement against the Oakland Raiders in Week 4.

  • Robby Anderson - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 9/20/18 11:09pm ET

    New York Jets WR Robby Anderson had two receptions for 22 yards in Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Coming off a 63-941-7 line in 2017, Anderson is currently on pace for 32-480-5. Yuck. If you've been carrying Anderson waiting for him to get on the same page with Sam Darnold it might be time to cut bait.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 9/20/18 11:03pm ET

    New York Jets WR Terrelle Pryor caught one pass for 25 yards in Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Off to a nice start with 11 receptions for 133 yards through two games, Pryor was M.I.A. in his return to Cleveland. He looks to be running No. 2 in the passing game behind Quincy Enunwa, but in the low-octane Jets offense that makes Pryor marginal fantasy depth at best.

  • Quincy Enunwa - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 9/20/18 10:57pm ET

    New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa caught four passes for 57 yards in the team's loss to the Cleveland Browns Thursday, Sept. 20. Enunwa was targeted a team-high eight times.

    Huddle Up: Make it three straight weeks for Enunwa leading the team in targets, receptions and receiving yards. He's clearly the No. 1 option for Sam Darnold, which makes Enunwa the safest Jets receiver to own for fantasy purposes.

  • Bilal Powell - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 9/20/18 10:50pm ET

    New York Jets RB Bilal Powell carried the ball 14 times for 73 yards (5.2 YPC) against the Cleveland Browns on Thursday, Sept. 20.

    Huddle Up: Through three games, Powell is averaging almost 73 total yards per contest. That's respectable production. The downside is Isaiah Crowell keeps getting all the goal-line work. Still, Powell is at least worth owning as decent depth with potential as a spot starter.

  • Isaiah Crowell - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 9/20/18 10:42pm ET

    New York Jets RB Isaiah Crowell rushed 16 times for 34 yards and two touchdowns in Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns. Crowell added two receptions for 17 yards.

    Huddle Up: That's twice in three games that Crowell has managed multiple scores. His yardage has been disappointing since a 102-yard effort in Week 1, but four TDs through three weeks gives him some appeal as a possible RB3/flex candidate.

  • Sam Darnold - QB - New York Jets
    Posted 9/20/18 10:28pm ET

    New York Jets QB Sam Darnold completed 15 of 31 passes for 169 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in a loss against the Cleveland Browns on Thursday, Sept. 20. Both of Darnold's interceptions came late in the fourth quarter.

    Huddle Up: Darnold was decent early on, but when he needed to bring them back in the final moments it all went sideways in a hurry. It's all part of the learning process for the USC product. Better days are ahead, though his value outside of keeper leagues is nominal.

  • David Njoku - TE - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/20/18 10:25pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku caught two passes for 36 yards during the team's Week 3 victory over the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: If you were hoping for a Year 2 leap from Njoku, it hasn't materialized yet. He's worth carrying as a TE2 -- if you're even keeping a backup tight end on your roster -- but isn't worth starting at this stage.

  • Antonio Callaway - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/20/18 10:10pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Antonio Callaway caught four passes (on 10 targets) for 20 yards in Week 3 against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: Callaway had a bit of buzz after his 3-81-1 line last week, and while four catches and 20 yards isn't the ideal follow up, the 10 targets tells you the rookie is a big part of the gameplan. He's a worthwhile depth addition that could slide into your starting lineup in the right matchup.

  • Jarvis Landry - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/20/18 9:58pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (knee) led the team in targets (15), receptions (eight) and receiving yards (103) during the club's win over the New York Jets on Thursday, Sept. 20. Landry also connected with QB Baker Mayfield on a two-point conversion.

    Huddle Up: Listed as questionable on the injury report with a knee injury, Landry topped 100 yards receiving for the second time in three games and nearly tripled his nearest teammate in yardage. Although he hasn't scored this season, Landry holds value as a borderline WR2/WR3, especially in PPR leagues.

  • Duke Johnson - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/20/18 9:50pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson had 33 total yards on four combined touches against the New York Jets in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: After averaging 65 yards per game and scoring seven times in 2017, Johnson has managed fewer than 23 yards per content through three weeks and hasn't sniffed pay dirt. It's a disappointing performance for one of the NFL's better receiving backs, but perhaps the likely move to Baker Mayfield will result in more action. If you can keep Johnson stashed on your bench, do so, as his PPR upside is real.

  • Carlos Hyde - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/20/18 9:24pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Carlos Hyde carried the ball 23 times for 98 yards (4.3 YPC) and two touchdowns during the team's win over the New York Jets in Week 3. Hyde added a pair of receptions for five yards.

    Huddle Up: Remember all that talk of a three-headed monster in the backfield or "riding the hot hand"? Yeah, not so much. Through three games, Hyde has 65 touches, Duke Johnson has 15, and Nick Chubb has seven. Hyde's 3.3 yards per carry are underwhelming, but he has four touchdowns and is the current bell cow. While there are questions about his ability to sustain this kind of workload, Hyde is currently the back to own in Cleveland and a solid RB3.

  • Tyrod Taylor - QB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/20/18 9:13pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) went 4-for-14 for 19 yards in just under a half of action on Thursday, Sept. 20, against the New York Jets. Taylor did carry the ball four times for 22 yards prior to suffering a concussion.

    Huddle Up: You have to think that, barring injury to Baker Mayfield, this is the end of Taylor's abbreviated stint as Cleveland's starter. While he made some plays with his legs, Taylor was pretty bad as a passer in Weeks 1 and 3, making it tough to sell starting him ahead of Mayfield to the fan base. If you're carrying Taylor on your roster as a backup you should start checking the waiver wire for a potential replacement.

  • Baker Mayfield - QB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/20/18 9:02pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield completed 17 of 23 passes (73.9 percent) for 201 yards against the New York Jets on Thursday, Sept. 20. Mayfield entered the game late in the second quarter after QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) suffered a concussion.

    Huddle Up: There are a few cliches that spring to mind, but with apologies to Mike Tyson's "everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth," we're going to go with you can't put the genie back in the bottle again. Yes, Cleveland's "plan" was to sit Mayfield and let Taylor start this season, but after Thursday night it's hard to imagine the job isn't Mayfield's going forward. While there's little doubt Hue Jackson will slow-play the formal announcement, Mayfield simply looked much better under center (Taylor was 4-for-14 before exiting, and the team was down 14 points). Whether he'll produce fantasy-relevant numbers remains to be seen, but if you have a strong starter Mayfield could hold some appeal due to his upside.

  • Tyrod Taylor - QB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/20/18 7:09pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor (head) was diagnosed with a concussion and will not return to the game in Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Taylor was not sharp before departing, going 4-of-14 for 19 yards while adding 22 yards on four carries. No. 1 overall draft pick Baker Mayfield came on after Taylor got hurt and will lead the Browns for the remainder of the game.

  • Russell Wilson - QB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/20/18 5:36pm ET

    Seattle Seahawk QB Russell Wilson (hamstring) was a full participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Sept. 20.

    Huddle Up: Wilson should undoubtedly be out there for Seattle's Sunday tilt at home opposite the Cowboys. With a tough defense on tap, Wilson is a lower-end QB1 to deploy for Week 3.

  • Doug Baldwin - WR - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/20/18 5:34pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (knee) missed practice for the second straight day Thursday, Sept. 20.

    Huddle Up: Baldwin missed the club's Week 2 affair on Monday night and it looks like he's most likely going to miss another one when the Cowboys come to town. If he remains sidelined, Brandon Marshall and Tyler Lockett will benefit considerably.

  • Travis Benjamin - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/20/18 5:01pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (foot) was absent from practice Thursday, Sept. 20.

    Huddle Up: Not a good sign for Benjamin's prospects of playing Sunday in Los Angeles, as he was actually downgraded from his limited session on Wednesday. If he doesn't play, Mike Williams and Tyrell Williams would each get a boost.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/20/18 4:54pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (neck) was a full participant at practice for the second straight day Thursday, Sept. 20.

    Huddle Up: Gordon should have no issues starting in the team's Week 3 game in Los Angeles against the Rams. It could be a high-scoring affair, too, which would point to a productive day at the office for Gordon. Either way, he's an RB1 to plug in.

  • Will Fuller - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 9/20/18 4:36pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 20.

    Huddle Up: Fuller was able to play last week and likely will be back on the field in Week 3. He will have a favorable matchup this week and be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver if he is active for the game.
