Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Jordan Reed - TE - Washington Redskins
    Posted 12/2/16 11:19am ET

    Updating a previous story, Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 13 against the Arizona Cardinals in order to continue receiving treatment on his ailing shoulder.

    Huddle Up: Reed should be considered week-to-week at this point. Vernon Davis will get the start and will be a viable TE1 during his absence given all of the injuries at the position across the league. This week, however, Davis faces one of the stingiest defenses against tight ends, so owners should consider other options if at all possible.

  • Trevor Siemian - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 12/2/16 11:10am ET

    Updating a previous story, Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (foot) has been ruled out for Week 13 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Rookie Paxton Lynch will make his second career start in his absence.

    Huddle Up: It's too bad for Siemian, who enjoyed a great game last week against the Kansas City Chiefs after finally getting over the sprained left shoulder joint he suffered in Week 4. Lynch's presence under center is a downgrade for receivers Demaryius Thomas as well as Emmanuel Sanders, although the rookie should be expected to perform better than he did in his first career start against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 5.

  • Trevor Siemian - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 12/2/16 10:48am ET

    Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (foot) is not expected to practice Friday, Dec. 2, and unlikely to play Week 13 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Siemian is dealing with a sprained foot, so there is no guarantee he'll be ready to go next week either. The Northwestern product was coming off one of his best games of the season and his absence will be a downgrade for receivers Demaryius Thomas as well as Emmanuel Sanders. First-round rookie Paxton Lynch will get the start if Siemian is ruled out for certain later today.

  • Andrew Luck - QB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 12/2/16 10:40am ET

    Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (concussion) is scheduled to visit an independent neurologist Friday, Dec. 2, in what should be his final hurdle in order to be cleared to play against the New York Jets in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: The Colts waived third-string quarterback Stephen Morris earlier this week, so they expect Luck to be on the field Monday against the Jets. Luck has practiced all week, which is further proof he should receive good news today. His return is obviously good news for the entire offense, especially Donte Moncrief and T.Y. Hilton, assuming the latter can make enough progress from his back injury over the weekend.

  • Brandon Marshall - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 12/2/16 10:31am ET

    New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall (knee, foot) missed his second consecutive practice Friday, Dec. 2.

    Huddle Up: The Jets play the Indianapolis Colts on Monday, so he has a bit more time than usual. Marshall's designation on the injury report later today is worth keeping an eye on, although it is hard to believe he'll miss this game after some of the ailments he has played with already this season. Unless he suffers a significant setback of some sort, consider him a high-volume WR2 with a favorable Week 13 matchup.

  • DeVante Parker - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 12/2/16 10:30am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (back) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 2.

    Huddle Up: Parker hasn't practiced all week and seems highly unlikely to play in Week 13 to face the Baltimore Ravens. His absence likely paves the way for Jarvis Landry and Kenny Stills to play starring roles as the Ravens top-ranked rush defense figures to have some success bottling up Jay Ajayi. Rookie Leonte Carroo should also play a bigger role in the passing game as well.

  • Jordan Reed - TE - Washington Redskins
    Posted 12/2/16 10:17am ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 2.

    Huddle Up: We noted yesterday Reed was unlikely to play Week 13 and this does nothing to change that. He should be considered week-to-week at this point, and there is a strong likelihood he won't resemble the dominant player he has been this season until 2017. Vernon Davis will fill in this week (if not beyond) and should considered a low-end TE1 during his absence.

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/2/16 10:07am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is 'going to play' in Week 13 against the Oakland Raiders, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

    Huddle Up: Watkins will be listed as questionable on the injury report and certainly at risk to aggravate the injury during the game, but the fact he was able to hang three catches for 80 yards on only 25 snaps last week against a good Jacksonville Jaguars secondary is proof he doesn't need a lot of playing time to be useful in fantasy. Consider him a high-risk, high-reward WR2 this weekend.

  • Julius Thomas - TE - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 12/2/16 8:36am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (back) is doubtful for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Thomas has been a shell of himself this year, and the team doesn't have a suitable replacement for fantasy purposes. Marcedes Lewis would be a basement option in DFS if you're looking to ration salary cap space.

  • Chris Ivory - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 12/2/16 8:34am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: T.J. Yeldon (ankle) could see the bulk of the work if he's healthy enough to go. However, he's a risky flex play against the Denver Broncos this week.

  • Allen Hurns - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 12/2/16 8:27am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Marqise Lee has been consistently decent the last four games with four catches in each and touchdowns in two straight games. The Denver Broncos pose a midrange matchup, but he could be a solid flex play with much of the attention on Allen Robinson.

  • A.J. Green - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 12/2/16 8:20am ET

    Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (hamstring) said he suffered a Grade 2 hamstring tear, and he's working to get back this season. It may not be until Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Recent reports offered some hope that he could return next week, but this report puts serious doubt on his availability for the fantasy playoffs. If you have the roster space, you have to stash him until something official occurs.

  • Jordan Matthews - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 12/2/16 8:08am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (ankle) is questionable for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Matthews will probably suit up, but his upside has been pretty minimal for most of the season with just three touchdowns. The Cincinnati Bengals are a midrange matchup, and he's a WR3 in PPR.

  • Ryan Mathews - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 12/2/16 8:04am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (knee) has been ruled out for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Wendell Smallwood is expected to be the lead back with Darren Sproles likely in passing situations. Smallwood didn't impress with nine carries for 37 yards in the role last week, but the Cincinnati Bengals could pose a sneaky matchup advantage. The Bengals' offense is reeling, which could give the Eagles the opportunity to run more. Smallwood is a low-end flex play. Sproles is much of the same in PPR formats only.

  • Chris Ivory - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 12/2/16 8:04am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) remains out of practice Friday, Dec. 2.

    Huddle Up: His status against the Denver Broncos looks pretty bleak. T.J. Yeldon (ankle) could see the bulk of the work if he's healthy enough to go. However, he's not a safe flex play this week.

  • Allen Hurns - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 12/2/16 8:03am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (hamstring) remains out of practice Friday, Dec. 2.

    Huddle Up: It's never a good sign when a player misses practice Friday, but there is a glimmer of hope when it comes to Hurns. He missed a lot of practice time last season and suited up most of the time. That being said, Hurns' numbers have basically been cut in half this season, and he has four catches in the last three games. He's not a good start against the Denver Broncos.

  • Julius Thomas - TE - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 12/2/16 7:52am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (back) remains out of practice Friday, Dec. 2.

    Huddle Up: Thomas has been a shell of himself this year, and this is a bad sign for his status this week. Avoid him against the Denver Broncos.

  • Antonio Brown - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 12/2/16 7:06am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown is expected to be shadowed by New York Giants CB Janoris Jenkins in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Jenkins is talented, but he's by no means a big threat to AB. Brown is one of the best options at receiver in fantasy on a weekly basis.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 12/2/16 5:24am ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald may be shadowed in the slot by Washington Redskins CB Josh Norman in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Fitz is having a 78-802-5 season in what has validated his renaissance at age 33. The Redskins present a midrange matchup, and Fitzgerald is a solid WR2 this week.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 12/1/16 10:04pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) returned to practice and was a full participant Thursday, Dec. 1.

    Huddle Up: Graham has been one of the best fantasy tight ends all year, and he could finish as the No. 1 player at his position against the struggling secondary of Carolina in Week 13.
