Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Colt McCoy - QB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 11/19/18 5:16pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy (shoulder, thumb) fully participated in practice Monday, Nov. 19. The Redskins did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.

    Huddle Up: McCoy will be the starting quarterback for the rest of the season and is familiar with the offensive scheme. Owners should consider him a No. 2 fantasy quarterback at this point and likely will not be a starting option this week.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 11/19/18 5:10pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (shoulder) was limited during practice Monday, Nov. 19. The Redskins did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.

    Huddle Up: Peterson is coming off a two-touchdown performance in Week 11 but has been held to under 70 yards rushing in each of the last three games. He can still be considered a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

  • Chris Thompson - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 11/19/18 5:07pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib) did not participate in practice Monday, Nov. 19. The Redskins did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.

    Huddle Up: Thompson likely will miss at least one more game because of his injury and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

  • Jamison Crowder - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 11/19/18 5:02pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) did not participate in practice Monday, Nov. 19. The Redskins did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.

    Huddle Up: Crowder probably will not be able to play in Week 12, but the extra time could help his chances to play in Week 13. Owners should avoid Crowder until he is able to return to practice.

  • Mitchell Trubisky - QB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 11/19/18 4:21pm ET

    Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) did not participate in practice Monday, Nov. 19. The Bears did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.

    Huddle Up: Trubisky probably will be able to play in the Week 12 game, but owners should monitor the situation. He threw for 355 yards and three touchdowns in his last game against the Detroit Lions and can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

  • Robby Anderson - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 11/19/18 3:56pm ET

    New York Jets WR Robby Anderson (ankle) did not participate in practice Monday, Nov. 19.

    Huddle Up: Anderson has missed two of the last three games, but owners should know more about his Week 12 status later in the week. He could be a flex option in some deeper leagues if he plays but would not be a must-start option.

  • Marvin Jones - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 11/19/18 3:18pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) was held out of practice Monday, Nov. 19.

    Huddle Up: It would be a surprise to see Jones play since he's seeking a second opinion on his injured knee and the Lions play Thursday morning. Assuming that is the case, Kenny Golladay will once again see a large portion of targets and can be started as a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2. Furthermore, Bruce Ellington would gain flex appeal in deeper leagues.

  • Tre'Quan Smith - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 11/19/18 3:07pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith (foot) was not able to practice Monday, Nov. 19.

    Huddle Up: Smith went off for 10 catches and 157 yards and a touchdown on 13 targets yesterday, so his absence would be a big loss for the Saints this Thanksgiving. If he misses practice over the next couple days then we could be looking at an unfortunate doubtful status.

  • Calvin Ridley - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 11/19/18 3:03pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (thigh) was limited during the team's walkthrough Monday, Nov. 19.

    Huddle Up: Ridley has posted disappointing numbers over the last several weeks and appears to be the third option in the passing game at this point. Owners can consider benching Ridley this week if they have better options available.

  • Ryan Tannehill - QB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 11/19/18 2:23pm ET

    Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) is expected to practice Tuesday, Nov. 20.

    Huddle Up: It remains to be seen what Tannehill's activity level will be, but just practicing is an improvement. He is dealing with a throwing shoulder injury though, so being active this week isn't a certainty.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 11/19/18 2:12pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson (knee) has a chance to return for Week 12, according to head coach Jon Gruden. He ran well Monday, Nov. 19, as he continues to recover from a knee contusion.

    Huddle Up: Nelson has been a non-factor since the trade of Amari Cooper, although with Brandon LaFell sidelined he should see a good share of targets. Still, he's too big of a risk to have in starting lineups.

  • Brandon LaFell - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 11/19/18 1:49pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Brandon LaFell (Achilles') was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Nov. 19.

    Huddle Up: With LaFell out for the year, Marcell Ateman is thrust into the spotlight after catching four passes on five targets for 50 yards yesterday. He's worth claiming off waivers if available.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 11/19/18 1:37pm ET

    Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham (thumb) will try to play this week despite breaking his thumb in Week 11. He will experiment his usage in different splits and protections.

    Huddle Up: The Packers need Graham with Geronimo Allison out for the year and with Randall Cobb being hampered. He's primarily a threat in the red zone but should be started if he's good to go nonetheless.

  • Jameis Winston - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 11/19/18 12:37pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston will reportedly be named the starting quarterback for Week 12 against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: This will mark the second time the former No. 1 overall pick "regained" his job this season. Thanks in large part to a great supporting cast and a terrible defense, Winston should be poised to post a few QB1 performances down the stretch even if he continues to throw interceptions at an alarming rate. Another in-game benching is not out of the question, however, making him very much a risk-reward option.

  • O.J. Howard - TE - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 11/19/18 12:22pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard (ankle) reportedly received some 'good news' on his ankle injury Monday, Nov. 19, but will seek a second opinion.

    Huddle Up: Howard was injured on the final drive of the game in Week 11 against the New York Giants. Any missed games from Howard would mean a bigger role for Cameron Brate and put him in the streamer conversation. However, his absence would be another gut-punch to a fantasy position that has been ransacked by injuries this season.

  • Joe Flacco - QB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 11/19/18 11:42am ET

    Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (hip) has 'a chance' to play in Week 12 against the Oakland Raiders, according to head coach John Harbaugh. 'It's not a surgical thing. It's a calming down type of thing with the hip,' Harbaugh said.

    Huddle Up: Harbaugh praised rookie Lamar Jackson for his work in Week 11 but certainly doesn't seem willing to commit to him yet. As recently as Saturday, Flacco was considered to be a longshot to play in Week 12, and one would have to expect that is still the case. It should be interesting to see if Jackson can persuade his coaches to go in a different direction after Week 12 if he can put together a good showing against the Oakland Raiders.

  • Kerryon Johnson - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 11/19/18 10:10am ET

    Updating previous reports, Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) will not play in Week 12 against the Chicago Bears and is 'week-to-week' with a knee sprain, according to a source. However, his knee is reportedly structurally sound.

    Huddle Up: Johnson was giving the Lions a respectable running game, so his absence is going to hurt the offense. With the Lions hosting the Bears on in the early Thanksgiving Day game, it was going always going to be difficult for the rookie to play on such a quick turnaround unless the injury turned out to be minor. LeGarrette Blount, Theo Riddick and Zach Zenner will form an uninspiring committee versus Chicago. Only Riddick needs to be considered for fantasy purposes, and he'll be a low-end flex at that.

  • Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 11/19/18 9:56am ET

    Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (shoulder) suffered a stinger as opposed to aggravating his elbow injury in Week 11 against the Indianapolis Colts. Head coach Mike Vrabel is hopeful Mariota will be able to play in Week 12 versus the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: It's been another rollercoaster of a year for Mariota, who strung together consecutive two-touchdown performances before getting hurt near the end of the first half in a blowout loss to the Colts. If Mariota is unable to go next Monday, Blaine Gabbert would get the start - a possibility that would make the Texans' defense one of the top plays of the week in fantasy.

  • Gus Edwards - RB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 11/19/18 9:48am ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards 'took the bull by the horns' with his 115-yard rushing performance on 17 carries in Week 11 versus the Cincinnati Bengals, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

    Huddle Up: Before owners go crazy and pin their fantasy title hopes on Edwards, it's important to note he had two key elements working in his favor his predecessors this year did not: the Bengals' dreadful defense and the presence of dual-threat quarterback Lamar Jackson in the backfield to keep Cincinnati on its toes. Edwards is worth adding in fantasy, however, as his physical running style obviously appealed to Harbaugh and because of the Ravens' incredibly favorable remaining schedule.

  • Alex Smith - QB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 11/19/18 7:50am ET

    Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) had surgery to repair a broken tibia and fibula Sunday, Nov. 19. He's out for the season.

    Huddle Up: Colt McCoy takes over, and he's a pickup in two-QB leagues only.
