Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Eddie Royal - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 11/27/16 4:49pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal had just one reception for minus-6 yards in the Week 12 game against the Tennessee Titans. That was his only target.

    Huddle Up: Royal was expected to team with Cameron Meredith to help fill the void left by the suspension to Alshon Jeffery, but it has been Marquess Wilson, Deonte Thompson and Josh Bellamy seeing a bump in targets instead. Avoid Royal in fantasy leagues until he shows more consistency.

  • Josh Bellamy - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 11/27/16 4:48pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Josh Bellamy posted four grabs for 41 yards on nine targets in the Week 12 loss against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Bellamy is one of a handful of receivers stepping up to fill the void left by Alshon Jeffery, who is suspended two more games. Bellamy still has a whole to go before he can be trusted in fantasy football, but he has seen more of the field in recent weeks due to injuries and/or suspensions.

  • Cameron Meredith - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 11/27/16 4:47pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Cameron Meredith posted just two catches for 19 yards on nine targets in the Week 12 loss against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Meredith has had some highlight reel games this season, but Sunday was certainly not one of them. With Alshon Jeffery suspended, many felt Meredith could step up and fill the void. So far it has been Marquess Wilson, Deonte Thompson and Joshua Bellamy doing the work instead.

  • Deonte Thompson - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 11/27/16 4:46pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Deonte Thompson posted five receptions for 44 yards and a touchdown on nine targets in the Week 12 loss against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Thompson hasn't been on the field much this season, but he is getting a chance with several injuries to the Chicago offense. Still, he has a ways to go before he has much in the way of fantasy relevance.

  • Marquess Wilson - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 11/27/16 4:46pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson hauled in eight receptions for 125 yards and a touchdown in the Week 12 game against Tennessee Titans. He was targeted 11 times.

    Huddle Up: Wilson showed nice rapport with Matt Barkley, perhaps a player he worked with more in practice in the past. With the Chicago offense in flux due to a number of injuries, Wilson could be a solid fantasy option down the stretch. The opportunity is certainly there for playing time with Alshon Jeffery out two more games due to suspension, too.

  • Derek Carr - QB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 11/27/16 3:21pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (finger) returned to the field midway through the third quarter of the Week 12 game against the Carolina Panthers. He is wearing a protective glove over the injured area of his right hand.

    Huddle Up: Carr's fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief, and the Panthers cut the lead of the Raiders to 24-19 since he departed, so there is little chance of a lopsided score cutting his day short.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/27/16 3:17pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) will not return to the Week 12 game against the New York Jets after leaving the game in the first quarter due to a back ailment.

    Huddle Up: Gronk entered the game banged up after missing the Week 11 outing due to a perforated lung, and now this. Fantasy owners of Gronk cannot seem to catch a break down the stretch of the regular season.

  • Derek Carr - QB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 11/27/16 3:16pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (finger) suffered a dislocation to either his right ring finger or pinkie in the third quarter of the Week 12 game against the Carolina Panthers, announcer Phil Simms speculated. Carr ran off to the locker room for treatment.

    Huddle Up: If Carr cannot continue, Matt McGloin would take over for the rest of the game. The Raiders had a 24-7 lead at the time of the injury, so perhaps the score of the game plays a factor into whether Carr can return, too.

  • Jared Goff - QB - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 11/27/16 3:09pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff threw 20-of-32 for 214 yards and three touchdowns in a 49-21 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: It will be baby steps forward for Goff, who is in just his second start after a 134-yard outing against the Miami Dolphins last week. He's best left on the sidelines unless you have a dynasty or keeper leagues, in which case pick Goff up if he is available.

  • Dion Sims - TE - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 11/27/16 3:09pm ET

    Miami Dolphins TE Dion Sims caught four passes for 53 yards and a touchdown against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Miami has not utilized the position enough in 2016 to believe this is a sign of things to come.

  • Jarvis Landry - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 11/27/16 3:05pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry caught four passes for 47 yards against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Miami has found several other capable receivers and a sound running game to cut into Landry's fantasy production. The Dolphins have an unfavorable schedule for receivers going forward, and there is not a lot of reason to believe he will turn it around without DeVante Parker's back injury being serious. At best, Landry is a PPR flex play.

  • Leonte Carroo - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 11/27/16 3:04pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Leonte Carroo caught one pass for 16 yards and his first NFL touchdown against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Carroo has a bright future but should not be on any single-year roster in 2016, unless DeVante Parker's back injury winds up being serious.

  • Tim Hightower - RB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 11/27/16 3:01pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead threw a 50-yard touchdown pass to RB Tim Hightower in a 49-21 win over the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Snead caught five passes for 38 yards, so if it hadn't been for that razzle-dazzle touchdown pass Snead would have had a bad day. Don't count on this play happening too much more, but Snead is ordinarily a decent threat for fantasy points. Snead is one of Drew Brees' many targets, so his numbers may go up and down.

  • Shaun Draughn - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 11/27/16 3:00pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn caught six passes for 49 yards in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Draughn has PPR appeal as a flex spot for gamers in deep leagues. The matchup largely dictates his role, as he didn't even see a carry in this game. Look to flex him when San Fran faces a capable offense.

  • Torrey Smith - WR - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 11/27/16 2:54pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith caught three passes for 24 yards and a touchdown in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Smith has virtually no fantasy value at this point, and starting him in any traditional format is asking for it. Consider anything positive from him as gravy.

  • Michael Thomas - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 11/27/16 2:51pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas caught nine passes for 108 yards and a pair of touchdowns in a 49-21 win over the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: The Ohio State rookie wideout is having one heck of a first year in the NFL. Thomas has seven touchdown catches and close to 800 yards through 11 games, which could put him in contention for postseason awards. Thomas is a decent WR2 or WR3 play on your fantasy roster, as he is finding his way through a crowded Saints receiving game.

  • DeVante Parker - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 11/27/16 2:47pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker caught three passes for 64 yards against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 12 before leaving with a back injury. Parker had a 10-yard TD grab overturned on a review, and 32-yard catch was also overturned as the officials determined he was out of bounds on the play in which he was injured.

    Huddle Up: Monitor his status as the Dolphins face the Baltimore Ravens in Week 13.

  • Mark Ingram - RB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 11/27/16 2:45pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram ran 14 times for 146 yards, including two touchdown runs of 61 and 10 yards, in a 49-21 win over the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Ingram was knocked out in the team's last game against the Carolina Panthers, so to see him snap back after 10 days is very encouraging. He added a third touchdown on a 21-yard pass completion from Drew Brees, so Ingram can definitely be used in flex status as a RB/WR.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 11/27/16 2:42pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones caught four passes for 35 yards against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Jones has been one of the best receivers in fantasy this season, so owners should not worry about his Week 12 performance. He should be a No. 1 receiver in all leagues moving forward.

  • Kenny Stills - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 11/27/16 2:39pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills caught three passes for a game-high 72 yards and a touchdown against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Stills is capable of scoring any given Sunday, but trusting him in fantasy lineups is always a risky deal. The Dolphins face a tough schedule ahead for fantasy receivers. Play him at your own risk.
