Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/2/16 2:35pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is listed as questionable for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Watkins should be able to play but likely will see limited snaps again. He posted a solid 80 yards in Week 13 and has a chance to make a big play each game. Owners should consider him a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in fantasy leagues.

  • Julian Edelman - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/2/16 2:30pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) has been limited in practice each of the last two days after sitting out Wednesday, Nov. 30, but he is fully expected to play against the Los Angeles Rams despite being listed as questionable on the Week 13 injury report.

    Huddle Up: In New England, 'questionable' is the new probable, and that is particularly the case with Edelman. The Patriots' slot receiver is in position to see another increase in targets following the loss of Rob Gronkowski, so if he isn't already in the low-end WR1 discussion in PPR leagues, he should be now.

  • Robert Woods - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/2/16 2:10pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Robert Woods (knee) has been ruled out for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Justin Hunter probably will have a bigger role in the passing game this week with Woods sidelined. He has been held to 16 yards or less in each of the last four games and should be avoided in all leagues.

  • Martellus Bennett - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/2/16 1:56pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) is listed As Questionable for Week 13 versus the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Rob Gronkowski's absence would seem to serve as a boost for Bennett's fantasy fortunes, but he may be too injured to take advantage and should be viewed as a TE2. Since his three-touchdown explosion in Week 5, Bennett has scored double-digit fantasy points in PPR only once and failed to find the end zone. Dion Lewis, James White and Malcolm Mitchell appear to be much better bets to see more targets moving forward.

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/2/16 1:53pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle, ribs) was a limited participant at practice for the third straight day Friday, Dec. 2.

    Huddle Up: Miller isn't even listed on the injury report, so there should be no issues over his availability this Sunday. The only concern is whether or not he'll be suiting up at less than 100 percent. Even so, it would be hard to justify not starting him in Week 13, being one of the main focal points of this offense no matter what condition he's in. Look for Houston to lean on him the usual amount in this crucial encounter at Lambeau.

  • Tom Brady - QB - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/2/16 1:50pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (knee) has been limited in practice each the last two days after sitting out Wednesday, Nov. 30, but he is fully expected to play in Week 13 against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Brady's fantasy stock takes a hit with Rob Gronkowski out, but the Patriots still have more than enough weapons to keep their quarterback among the elite plays in fantasy most weeks, which he should be again this weekend.

  • Latavius Murray - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 12/2/16 1:32pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (ankle) has been limited all week in practice, but he is expected to play in Week 13 versus the Buffalo Bills despite being listed as questionable on the injury report.

    Huddle Up: Murray frustratingly loses a few more opportunities to Jalen Richard and Jamize Olawale each game, but at least DeAndre Washington appears to have been removed from the Raiders' committee for now. Since returning from his toe injury in Week 7, Murray has topped 20 touches three times and seen at least 16 in all five games. He is a good bet to score and contribute a bit in the passing game every week, making him a fine RB2.

  • T.Y. Hilton - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 12/2/16 1:20pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (back) returned to a full practice Friday, Dec. 2, putting him on track to play in Week 13 against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: Back injuries are always a bit scary and unpredictable, but his ability to practice without limitations bodes well for his Week 13 fantasy stock. Hilton and Donte Moncrief should have their way against an overmatched New York secondary on Monday night, especially since the Jets figure to keep Frank Gore in check.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 12/2/16 1:19pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (hamstring) was a limited participant at practice for the third consecutive day Friday, Dec. 2.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers is officially listed as questionable on the injury report, but it's pretty much a certainty he'll be out there Sunday opposite the Texans. And while he might be a bit limited physically, owners would be crazy to leave him on the bench. The former Super Bowl MVP has played like a desirable QB1 all season, and with Green Bay in 'must-win' mode, you can bet they'll continue to lean on him as much as possible. He should not be on any fantasy benches for Week 13.

  • DeVante Parker - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 12/2/16 1:17pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (back) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 2, and is listed as questionable for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Parker probably will be a game-time decision since he was not able to participate in practice this week. Owners can check the inactive list to see if he plays but may want to pass on him this week since he may be limited if he is active.

  • Mike Evans - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 12/2/16 1:02pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (not injury related) got in another full practice Friday, Dec. 2.

    Huddle Up: Evans rested on Wednesday but has been a regular back at practice since then. As a result, there's no reason to be concerned with him providing his usual stellar production in Sunday's desirable matchup with the Chargers. As always, he'll enter that contest as a respectable WR1.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 12/2/16 1:01pm ET

    Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 13 versus the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers was able to finish last week despite the injury and seems reasonably certain to play through it this week, although his mobility will likely be somewhat compromised. As a result of his injury and the matchup, he probably shouldn't be expected to be the elite QB1 he typically is, but there is no question he needs to be started in all leagues.

  • Tyrell Williams - WR - San Diego Chargers
    Posted 12/2/16 12:53pm ET

    San Diego Chargers WR Tyrell Williams (shoulder) has been ruled questionable for the team's Week 13 contest Sunday, Dec. 4, versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Williams was able to get in a limited practice session on Friday after sitting out practice the previous two days, so that's definitely encouraging in terms of his status for Sunday. Even so, he'll be hard to trust as a WR3, however, as it appears he'll be entering this matchup at less than 100 percent. If he has to sit, Travis Benjamin will be worth deploying in all leagues.

  • Jeremy Maclin - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 12/2/16 12:47pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) was limited all week in practice and is questionable for Week 13 against the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: Maclin has been sidelined since Week 9 and this week marked his first practices since the injury, so it is a good bet he will be on a snap count in this game if he plays. Tyreek Hill should have at least one more week as the Chiefs' top option at receiver and faces a secondary that lost top corner Desmond Trufant for the season earlier this week. Hill is a solid WR3 this week with WR2 upside.

  • Tyrell Williams - WR - San Diego Chargers
    Posted 12/2/16 12:13pm ET

    San Diego Chargers WR Tyrell Williams (shoulder) took part in practice for the first time Friday, Dec. 2, and is hopeful to play in Week 13 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Williams also said he'll be '100 percent' by Sunday despite the fact he is reportedly dealing with a torn labrum, although there seems to be some question that is what he is really dealing with at the moment. Assuming the initial diagnosis is correct, Williams played through a similar injury in college. Given that information and a good matchup versus an undersized secondary, he should be considered a high-upside WR2 this weekend.

  • Jordan Matthews - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 12/2/16 11:58am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (ankle) will be a true game-time decision in Week 13 versus the Cincinnati Bengals after not practicing Friday, Dec. 2, and the Eagles are reportedly 'far less confident' in his availability than they were earlier in the week, according to NJ.com's Eliot Shorr-Parks.

    Huddle Up: The Eagles have perhaps the worst receiving corps in the league with Matthews, so they'll probably wait as long as possible before ruling him out - assuming they do. Zach Ertz would likely get peppered with targets if Matthews sits, while Dorial Green-Beckham would probably step up into the lead receiver role. Bryce Treggs and Nelson Agholor could also play minor roles as well, although both would not be worth using in fantasy.

  • Mark Ingram - RB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 12/2/16 11:47am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe) participated in the open portion of practice Friday, Dec. 2, after not practicing earlier in the week.

    Huddle Up: It bodes well for the possibility he will suit up Week 13 against the Detroit Lions, although Tim Hightower is a good bet to receive more touches given the nature of Ingram's injury. Ingram is a high-upside RB2 in what has quickly become a very good rushing attack, while Hightower is more a lower-end RB2 option.

  • Eddie Royal - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 12/2/16 11:36am ET

    Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal (toe) has been listed as questionable for Week 13 against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Almost all of Royal's tenure in Chicago has been accompanied with a questionable tag, which is a shame for a player who has shown flashes of being one of the better slot receivers in the league on the rare occasion when he stays healthy. Marquess Wilson is the Chicago receiver to own at the moment, although Deonte Thompson and Cameron Meredith should also be involved.

  • DeVante Parker - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 12/2/16 11:26am ET

    Updating a previous story, Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (back) has yet to be ruled out, but head coach Adam Gase told reporters Friday, Dec. 2, he may hold Parker out even if the receiver tells him he is ready to go in Week 13 versus the Baltimore Ravens.

    Huddle Up: Given Parker's injury history, Gase is doing the prudent thing here. Owners shouldn't count on having Parker this week, leaving Jarvis Landry and Kenny Stills as Ryan Tannehill's likely top options in a game in which the Dolphins' running game probably will struggle. Stills could struggle if Baltimore decides to shadow him with Jimmy Smith, but Landry could resume his high-volume ways given the matchup.

  • Jordan Reed - TE - Washington Redskins
    Posted 12/2/16 11:19am ET

    Updating a previous story, Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 13 against the Arizona Cardinals in order to continue receiving treatment on his ailing shoulder.

    Huddle Up: Reed should be considered week-to-week at this point. Vernon Davis will get the start and will be a viable TE1 during his absence given all of the injuries at the position across the league. This week, however, Davis faces one of the stingiest defenses against tight ends, so owners should consider other options if at all possible.
