Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/29/16 5:42pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (back, knee) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Graham is a potential TE1 candidate if he suits up in Week 4, but have a backup plan in place in case his back injury doesn't improve.

  • Braxton Miller - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 9/29/16 5:31pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Miller has explosive athleticism, but it could be a while before it translates into consistent production. He doesn't need to be owned outside of keeper leagues right now.

  • Delanie Walker - TE - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/29/16 5:19pm ET

    Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (hamstring) returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Walker is expected to return to action against the Houston Texans in Week 4, and his status as Marcus Mariota's favorite target makes him a TE1.

  • Tajae Sharpe - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/29/16 5:16pm ET

    Tennessee Titans WR Tajae Sharpe (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Sharpe has been targeted at least seven times in all three games this year, and he is a viable flex option in PPR formats if he suits up in Week 4.

  • Alshon Jeffery - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/29/16 4:10pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (knee) was limited in practice again Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: He was also limited on Wednesday, but this shouldn't affect his status for Sunday in a solid matchup with the Lions. Through three games, Jeffrey has hauled in 14 receptions for 271 yards, but is still searching for his first touchdown of the year.

  • Jacoby Brissett - QB - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/29/16 3:58pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Jacoby Brissett (thumb) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: It's unclear if either Brissett or Garoppolo will be able to take the field this weekend, but neither warrants starter consideration, especially not against a Buffalo Bills pass defense that has only allowed two passing touchdowns this year.

  • Marvin Jones - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 9/29/16 3:55pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Despite drawing the 'limited participant' tag, Jones should be fine to play in the team's Week 4 contest opposite the Chicago Bears. As long as he's healthy, the former Cincinnati Bengal can be leaned upon in a plus matchup, with him emerging as the decisive No. 1 wide-out in Detroit in the early going. Of course, though, owners should keep an eye on his status in the coming days.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/29/16 3:48pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski was extremely limited in his first game of the season last week, but he should see an uptick in action this week after another week of rest and practice. His ceiling is much lower with either Jimmy Garoppolo or Jacoby Brissett at quarterback, but Gronk should still be started despite a goose egg last week.

  • Josh Gordon - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/29/16 3:45pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's career with the team is 'likely over,' as he's not expected to receive another shot with this regime.

    Huddle Up: Gordon has been given several chances in Cleveland to stay out of trouble, but unfortunately, the talented wide-out just hasn't been able to abide. There's no doubt he'd get another shot elsewhere if the Browns do dispose of him, but who knows when that will be with the 25-year-old just checking into rehab. Whenever Gordon is able to emerge from this, he's still capable of being a force again.

  • Charles Clay - TE - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/29/16 3:38pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) participated fully in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been underwhelming in his first year and three games with the Bills. Even with Sammy Watkins not looking promising to play this week, Clay is not a viable starting candidate at tight end. The only Bills that should be started if Watkins sits this week are LeSean McCoy and Tyrod Taylor, and maybe Robert Woods as a sleeper.

  • Willie Snead - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 9/29/16 2:49pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) was limited in practice again Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Snead has had plenty of time to rest after missing Week 3, so keep an eye on if he's upgraded or not in the next few days. If he does play, he's an automatic start in the Saints' pass-happy offense. That being said, Jason Verrett and Casey Hayward are two of the best cornerbacks in the NFL, and Snead may be limited, so expectations should be mildly tempered.

  • Josh Gordon - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/29/16 2:42pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon announced Thursday, Sept. 29, that he is stepping away from pursuing his return to football in order to enter a rehabilitation facility.

    Huddle Up: Whether or not Gordon's football career is completely over remains to be seen, but the prospect of him playing in 2016 doesn't sound promising. Terrelle Pryor will continue to be the best fantasy option in Cleveland's passing game with Gordon not returning and has WR2 appeal for the rest of the season. Aside from Pryor, Corey Coleman, when he makes a healthy return, and Gary Barnidge are really the only other startable pass-catchers going forward for the Browns.

  • DeVante Parker - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/29/16 2:37pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (hamstring) is expected to play Thursday, Sept. 29, against the Cincinnati Bengals despite his questionable status, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Parker is the second best receiving option in Miami's offense. He is capable of putting up WR2 numbers, but he's better suited as a WR3 for fantasy purposes against what could very well be an angry Bengals defense at home.

  • Jarvis Landry - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/29/16 2:33pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry (shoulder) is expected to play Thursday, Sept. 29, against the Cincinnati Bengals despite his questionable status, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: The Bengals really relapsed last week against the Denver Broncos, and suddenly Landry and the Dolphins' passing game doesn't have a bad matchup, at least on paper. The Bengals will want to re-prove themselves in a primetime home game and Landry probably isn't 100 percent for tonight's contest, but he's still a high-end WR2 play in PPR formats.

  • Jerick McKinnon - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/29/16 2:24pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (toe) participated fully in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon will be the Vikings' primary running back again this week, but the New York Giants have been stingy against the position so far this year, yielding just 74 rushing yards per game so far. McKinnon shouldn't necessarily be benched, but he's no more than a flex option with a bad matchup and Matt Asiata taking some snaps, too.

  • Rashad Jennings - RB - New York Giants
    Posted 9/29/16 2:04pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: The indication is that Jennings is more doubtful than questionable for Week 4, so it may be mainly Orleans Darkwa and Bobby Rainey in New York's backfield this week. Unfortunately, they're up against one of the toughest run defenses in the league in the Minnesota Vikings, who haven't yet given up a rushing touchdown to running backs. It's best to keep Darkwa and Rainey out of starting lineups.

  • Josh Doctson - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/29/16 1:47pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') did not practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Head coach Jay Gruden has already said he's worried about Doctson's Achilles' ailment, which may keep Doctson out for a few weeks. Jordan Reed, DeSean Jackson, Jamison Crowder and Pierre Garcon will still see the majority of targets with Doctson out. The rookie receiver should remain on your fantasy bench for the foreseeable future.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/29/16 1:42pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee, ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Jackson was limited in practice last week, too, and still ended up catching five passes on eight targets for 96 yards and a touchdown. Don't let the limited status fool you. Jackson may not be quite at 100 percent heading into Week 4, but he's still capable of putting up WR2 numbers in a favorable matchup versus the Cleveland Browns.

  • Isaiah Crowell - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/29/16 1:12pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell (knee) participated fully in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Crowell was upgraded from limited to full from Wednesday to Thursday, so he should be good to go for Week 4 against the Washington Redskins. Washington has been porous against the run this year, giving up over 100 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns per game to running backs. Crowell is solidly in high-end RB2 territory.

  • T.Y. Hilton - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/29/16 12:54pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Hilton should be one of the main targets in the passing game this week against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He is coming off a tremendous performance where he recorded 174 yards and one touchdown. He should be a No. 1 or No. 2 wide receiver for all fantasy owners.
