Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Jeremy Maclin - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/25/16 9:00pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin was targeted seven times in Week 3 against the New York Jets, but he managed four catches for 35 yards.

    Huddle Up: Maclin is averaging five receptions per game this season, which is decent in PPR leagues. However, his yardage total was a season low, and he hasn't found the end zone since the opener. He should be treated as a WR3 in most standard leagues until he gets untracked.

  • Travis Kelce - TE - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/25/16 9:00pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce completed six receptions for 89 yards with a touchdown in the Week 3 game against the New York Jets. He was targeted seven times.

    Huddle Up: Kelce has rolled up five or more receptions in each of his three games, and Sunday's game marked his first foray into the end zone. He is a tremendous TE1 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 4 at Pittsburgh.

  • Spencer Ware - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/25/16 8:26pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware carried 20 times for 75 yards in the Week 3 game against the New York Jets and he added one reception for eight yards on his only target.

    Huddle Up: It wasn't a great day for Ware, but he was a serviceable RB2 in most fantasy formats. He faces a decent fantasy outlook in Week 4 in Pittsburgh on Sunday Night Football.

  • Rishard Matthews - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/25/16 8:24pm ET

    Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews posted three grabs for 32 yards in the Week 3 game against the Oakland Raiders. He was targeted eight times.

    Huddle Up: Matthews came over from Miami as a high-priced free agent, but he has yet to make a splash from a fantasy perspective. Right now he can only be trusted as a WR4 in deeper leagues.

  • Tajae Sharpe - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/25/16 8:23pm ET

    Tennessee Titans rookie WR Tajae Sharpe managed three receptions for 48 yards in the Week 3 game against the Oakland Raiders. He was targeted seven times.

    Huddle Up: Sharpe faced a fairly favorable matchup against a defense which had allowed 34.5 points per game, but the Titans struggled offensively and Sharpe's big day never materialized despite the lack of Delanie Walker and chance for more targets. Keep treating him as a WR4 in most fantasy leagues until he gets on a roll.

  • DeMarco Murray - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/25/16 8:21pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray carried 16 times for 114 yards with a touchdown in the Week 3 game against the Oakland Raiders. He added five receptions for 41 yards on five targets.

    Huddle Up: Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray carried 16 times for 114 yards with a touchdown in the Week 3 game against the Oakland Raiders. He added five receptions for 41 yards on five targets.

  • Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/25/16 8:14pm ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota completed 17 of his 33 pass attempts for 214 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 3 game against the Oakland Raiders. He also ran three times for 22 yards.

    Huddle Up: Mariota had at least two passing touchdowns in each of his first two games, but he was awful in this one and really missed the injured Delanie Walker, his go-to receiver. Mariota is just too inconsistent to rely upon in most fantasy leagues unless using him as a bye-week replacement.

  • Amari Cooper - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/25/16 8:14pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper was targeted nine times in the Week 3 game against the Tennessee Titans, but he picked up just four receptions for 62 yards.

    Huddle Up: Cooper is averaging five receptions for game, but his yardage totals have decreased in each game this season. He was drafted as a bona fide WR1 in most fantasy formats, but is looking more like a WR2 so far.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/25/16 8:13pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree hauled in eight receptions for 102 yards on a game-high 11 targets in the Week 3 game against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Crabtree has developed a nice rapport with Derek Carr, racking up at least four receptions in each of his three games while posting 87 or more yards in two of his three outings. He has re-emerged as a solid WR2 in most fantasy formats and will remain so as long as he can avoid the injury bug.

  • Latavius Murray - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/25/16 8:12pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray carried 10 times for 37 yards and a touchdown in the Week 3 game against the Tennessee Titans. Outside of his 22-yard scoring scamper, he has 15 rushing yards on his nine other totes.

    Huddle Up: Murray has scored a rushing touchdown in each of his three games so far, but his rushing yardage total has also decreased in each of his games to date. Still, he remains a low-end RB1 in all leagues because of his touchdowns.

  • Derek Carr - QB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/25/16 8:11pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 21 of his 35 pass attempts for a season-low 249 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 3 game against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Carr has managed at least 249 passing yards and one or more TD passes in each of his three starts. He has emerged as a borderline QB1/2 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, especially when the matchup is favorable.

  • Jeremy Langford - RB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/25/16 7:11pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jeremy Langford (Achilles') was carted off to the locker room in the third quarter of the Week 3 game against the Dallas Cowboys due to a possible Achilles' injury.

    Huddle Up: With Langford on the mend and Ka'Deem Carey inactive, rookie Jordan Howard will carry the load the rest of the game unless Langford has a miraculous recovery.

  • Jay Ajayi - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/25/16 7:11pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi posted seven receptions for 28 yards with a game-winning touchdown in overtime in Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns. He was not targeted in the pass game.

    Huddle Up: Ajayi seems to be in head coach Adam Gase's doghouse, as the coach elected to start the rookie Kenyan Drake in this one, and Ajayi was left home in Week 1. However, when he gets his chance he has produced and he might re-emerge as a solid RB3 if Foster remains sidelined and he can ease his way out of Gase's doghouse.

  • Kenny Stills - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/25/16 7:10pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills hauled in five receptions for 76 yards on eight targets in the Week 3 game against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Stills has seen an increase in receptions and yardage in each of his three games, although he failed to find the end zone this week after scoring in New England in Week 2. He should be treated as a low-end WR3 in most fantasy formats.

  • Jarvis Landry - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/25/16 7:10pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry posted seven receptions for a team-high 120 yards and a touchdown in the Week 3 game against the Cleveland Browns. He was targeted 12 times.

    Huddle Up: Landry is a high-target fantasy receiver who is loved by his owners in formats which reward points per receptions (PPR). He isn't bad in seasonal standards leagues and DFS play, either.

  • DeVante Parker - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/25/16 7:04pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker racked up three receptions for 51 yards and a touchdown in the Week 3 game against the Cleveland Browns. He was targeted six times.

    Huddle Up: If Parker can manage to stay healthy for any length of time he could be an impact option in all fantasy formats. Right now, consider him more of a low-end WR3 with some upside if he can avoid the trainer's table.

  • Damien Williams - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/25/16 7:00pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams ran once for 15 yards and he had three receptions for 10 yards and a touchdown in the Week 3 game against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Williams didn't see as many opportunities as Jay Ajayi or Kenyan Drake, but he showed well in his touches and might have bought himself more plays in the future. Right now, though, he is only worth monitoring and not adding to a fantasy roster just yet.

  • Kenyan Drake - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/25/16 6:58pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake made the start in Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns, but he carried nine times for 37 yards and had two catches for just 11 yards.

    Huddle Up: The good news is that Jay Ajayi and Isaiah Pead did not do much, either, as Arian Foster was sidelined again. Drake has more fantasy appeal in long-term keeper leagues than redraft formats right now.

  • Ryan Tannehill - QB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/25/16 6:56pm ET

    Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill completed 25 of his 39 pass attempts for 319 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 3 game against the Cleveland Browns. He also ran once for two yards.

    Huddle Up: Tannehill has thrown for 319 or more yards in each of the past two games while tossing five touchdowns. He has emerged as a high-end QB2 in most fantasy leagues, and is worth using as a starter if you primary option has a difficult matchup.

  • Dez Bryant - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 9/25/16 6:53pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) suffered a right knee injury in the first quarter of the Week 3 game against the Chicago Bears, not an injury to his ankle. He had a sleeve on his knee and had it re-wrapped before returning to the game.

    Huddle Up: Bryant is a tough player and he hasn't shown any ill-effects of the injury since returning to the game.
