Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Dez Bryant - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 9/25/16 5:38pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (ankle) returned to the Week 3 game against the Chicago Bears after a brief absence and trip to the locker room.

    Huddle Up: Bryant rolled his ankle and it certainly didn't look good, but he returned after only an absence of several minutes. Fantasy owners everywhere breathe a sigh of relief.

  • Rashad Jennings - RB - New York Giants
    Posted 9/25/16 5:36pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) said Sunday, Sept. 25, that he understood head coach Ben McAdoo's decision to keep him out. He said his thumb feels better and he is hopeful of returning in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: With Jennings sidelined it was Orleans Darkwa shouldering the load in the backfield for Big Blue. If Jennings is forced to miss more time Darkwa is worth a look in some deeper fantasy formats and DFS leagues.

  • Dez Bryant - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 9/25/16 5:35pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (ankle) suffered an apparent right ankle injury in the first quarter of the Week 3 game against the Chicago Bears. He was taken back to the locker room for further evaluation.

    Huddle Up: Bryant had his ankle turn on a first-quarter reception, and he is receiving treatment on the sidelines. Stay tuned.

  • Russell Wilson - QB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/25/16 5:01pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (knee) is believed to have a sprained medial collateral ligament in his knee. That is the initial belief after the Week 3 game against the San Francisco 49ers. He will undergo further testing.

    Huddle Up: It sounds like Wilson's injury is a bit more serious and he might be looking at some time off. If so, that's good news for the likes of Thomas Rawls and Christine Michael, who might be asked to shoulder more of the load on offense. It's not great news for Doug Baldwin and the receivers, who would have rookie Trevone Boykin throwing to them.

  • Alshon Jeffery - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/25/16 4:25pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (knee) is active for the Week 3 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: It was touch and go with Jeffery this week, but he practiced Friday and is ready to go.

  • Eli Rogers - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 9/25/16 3:43pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Eli Rogers (toe) suffered a toe injury in the Week 3 game against the Philadelphia Eagles and he was unable to return.

    Huddle Up: Rogers posted two grabs for 32 yards on five targets before departing. He has emerged as a decent WR4 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, but he should be reserved until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks

  • Vance McDonald - TE - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 9/25/16 3:35pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald (hip) suffered a hip injury in the Week 3 game against the Seattle Seahawks and was unable to return, the team said Sunday, Sept. 25.

    Huddle Up: McDonald should be reserved in all fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.

  • Russell Wilson - QB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/25/16 3:17pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (ankle, knee) suffered a knee injury in the Week 3 game against the San Francisco 49ers, he did not aggravate his ankle injury. Rookie QB Trevone Boykin replaced him and will finish up the game, according to the team.

    Huddle Up: It's been a difficult season for Wilson and his fantasy owners so far. He will not return to the game with a giant lead late in the third quarter, and it wouldn't be surprising to see Wilson sit again in Week 4 if he doesn't make tremendous improvement throughout the week.

  • Russell Wilson - QB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/25/16 3:16pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (ankle) left the Week 3 game against the San Francisco 49ers and he is receiving treatment on the sidelines, likely for the ankle injury he has been dealing with the past two weeks. Rookie QB Trevone Boykin replaced him.

    Huddle Up: With the game out of hand it is likely we won't see Wilson again for the remainder of the day. Fantasy should be worried about this ongoing situation, as Wilson doesn't seem to be getting healthier and might be forced to miss a game or two to rest his injury.

  • Allen Robinson - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/25/16 2:57pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Robinson caught seven passes for 57 yards and two touchdowns against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Robinson has been targeted at least 11 times in two of the three games this season and is the team's top target in the passing game. He should be considered as a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver against most opponents.

  • A.J. Green - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/25/16 2:57pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green had 77 yards on eight catches Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 29-17 loss to the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: Green remains QB Andy Dalton's top target, and he should return to the scoring column against a weaker opponent next week.

  • Jeremy Hill - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/25/16 2:53pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill rushed for 97 yards on 17 carries and scored twice Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 29-17 loss to the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: This number is slightly misleading, as Hill had a 50-yard run tucked into this total. Still, this performance is enough to recommend Hill has a running back in fantasy circles, more likely a RB2 or RB3.

  • Blake Bortles - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/25/16 2:52pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles went 24-for-38 for 194 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 3. He also rushed for 17 yards on three carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Bortles has thrown six interceptions in his first three games but also has five touchdowns during that span. He is scheduled to face the Indianapolis Colts in Week 4 and should be a decent No. 1 quarterback for fantasy owners.

  • Dennis Pitta - TE - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 9/25/16 2:48pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta caught six passes for 42 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Pitta has taken control of the starting tight end job with the Ravens and has been targeted 20 times over the last two games. Pitta could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues or one of the better No. 2 tight end in standard leagues.

  • Demaryius Thomas - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 9/25/16 2:43pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas caught six passes for 100 yards and scored a touchdown in a 29-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, Sept. 25.

    Huddle Up: Combined with Emmanuel Sanders, the Broncos receiving corps had a spectacular day. Thomas should be kept active in most fantasy lineups, as he and Sanders appear to have a rapport with QB Trevor Siemian.

  • Steve Smith - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 9/25/16 2:42pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith caught eight passes for 87 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Smith has improved on his stats in each of his last two games and should continue to be a reliable option for Joe Flacco. Owners should consider Smith as a solid No. 3 receiver against most opponents.

  • Emmanuel Sanders - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 9/25/16 2:34pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders caught nine passes for 117 yards and two touchdowns Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 29-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: It is encouraging to see Sanders establish a rapport with Trevor Siemian, something Demaryius Thomas also appears to be doing. Keep Sanders among your top receivers.

  • LeSean McCoy - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/25/16 2:30pm ET

    Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy rushed for 110 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3. He also caught three passes for six yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: McCoy was fairly quiet in the first two weeks of the season but was able to surpass the 100-yard mark for the first time. He should continue to receive most of the carries as long as he can stay healthy. He should be a starting option in all leagues but will be facing a tough New England Patriots defense in Week 4.

  • C.J. Anderson - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 9/25/16 2:28pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson rushed for just 37 yards on 14 carries Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 29-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: The entire Denver running game was ineffective, but Trevor Siemian's passing made up for it. You may want to see how Denver's opponent fares against the run before putting Anderson in your lineup.

  • Tyrod Taylor - QB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/25/16 2:25pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor went 14-for-25 for 119 yards and one interception against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3. He also rushed for 76 yards and one touchdown on nine carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Taylor has been inconsistent with his passing stats over the first three weeks of the season but was productive with his legs in Week 3. He is scheduled to face the New England Patriots in Week 4 and will not be a great fantasy option in most leagues.
