Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Tyler Lockett - WR - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 7/19/19 10:32am ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett led the league with a perfect 158.3 passer rating when targeted 20 or more yards downfield (minimum 15 targets) in 2018.

    Huddle Up: Lockett will be counted on to be much more than just a deep threat this season with Doug Baldwin now out of the picture and should be valued as a low-end WR2.

  • Tyreek Hill - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 7/19/19 9:12am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill issued his own statement Friday, July 19, after the league announced he will not be subject to a disciplinary suspension or fine at this time. In part, Hill wrote: 'To the Kansas City Chiefs, Clark Hunt, Brett Veach, Coach Reid, the entire organization and the Chiefs Kingdom: you gave me a home when everyone doubted me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I love you all. I can assure you that I will continue to work to be the person, player, and teammate that you envisioned me to be.'

    Huddle Up: Surprising as it may be, Hill returns to WR1 consideration in fantasy until further notice.

  • Tyreek Hill - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 7/19/19 7:09am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill will not be suspended by the NFL as the league found that he did not violate the personal conduct policy. He will be able to attend training camp and participate in all team activities.

    Huddle Up: The news has a big impact on the fantasy landscape as Hill immediately returns to WR1 status with the cloud clearing over him. Hill had an 87-1,479-12 breakout last season, and talks on a long-term deal could also rekindle.

  • Frank Gore - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 7/18/19 11:55pm ET

    Rival teams believe the Buffalo Bills could release someone from the group of RBs LeSean McCoy, Frank Gore and T.J. Yeldon, according to MMQB's Albert Breer, who notes that McCoy is set to earn far more money than Gore or Yeldon.

    Huddle Up: Barring injury, Devin Singletary is going to make the 53-man roster. Beyond that, training camp will sort things out, though Yeldon seems the most like casualty at this stage.

  • Mecole Hardman - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 7/18/19 8:34pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman 'will make an instant impact' as a receiver, according to Grant Gordon of

    Huddle Up: Not only does Hardman land in a pass-happy, receiver-friendly offense, but Tyreek Hill could be facing a suspension and Sammy Watkins has never been able to stay healthy. Hardman could end up being a WR3 with upside in short order.

  • Miles Sanders - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 7/18/19 7:42pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders has 'absolutely nothing guaranteed' in terms of his role in the offense, according to Dave Spadaro

    Huddle Up: A hamstring injury has Sanders behind the eight ball in a crowded Philadelphia backfield heading into training camp. His long-term potential as an every-down back makes him a first-round candidate in rookie drafts, but he is shaping up to be more of a RB4 in redraft leagues.

  • DaeSean Hamilton - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 7/18/19 7:26pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR DaeSean Hamilton had 'a slew of solid receptions' for the first-team offense during training camp Thursday, July 18.

    Huddle Up: Hamilton is expected to serve as the No. 3 receiver this season, but unless Emmanuel Sanders is slow to return to form, Hamilton can probably be left on the waiver wire.

  • Noah Fant - TE - Denver Broncos
    Posted 7/18/19 6:53pm ET

    Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant was used as an in-line tight end with the first-team offense during training camp Thursday, July 18, and he struggled to contain LB Von Miller.

    Huddle Up: Blocking is expected to be Fant's biggest weakness early in his career, and while his snap count could be limited as a result, he has enough upside as a receiver to warrant a look as a touchdown-dependent TE2.

  • Jalen Richard - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 7/18/19 6:35pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Jalen Richard could lose a 'good chunk' of his snaps on receiving downs to RB Josh Jacobs, according to Vic Tafur of The Athletic.

    Huddle Up: Richard's value was already limited to PPR formats, and now that Jacobs is in the mix and potentially headed for an every-down role, Richard is slipping into handcuff territory. Meanwhile, Jacobs looks like a RB2 candidate as a rookie.

  • Demarcus Robinson - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 7/18/19 6:05pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson will be expected to take over the role that Jacksonville Jaguars WR Chris Conley filled for the offense last season.

    Huddle Up: Conley finished last season with 32 catches for 334 yards and five scores while Robinson logged 22 grabs for 288 yards and four scores. Combine those numbers on top of a potential suspension for Tyreek Hill, and Robinson could be worth a late-round flier as a WR5.

  • Marquise Brown - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 7/18/19 3:50pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens WR Marquise Brown (foot) is making solid progress in his rehab and likely will be back on the field in a few weeks.

    Huddle Up: Brown is in line for a solid role in the passing game this season if he is able to stay healthy. Fantasy players should monitor his play during the preseason since he can be a late round option in fantasy drafts.

  • Emmanuel Sanders - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 7/18/19 12:15pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles) didn't participate in team periods at practice Thursday, July 18, but told NFL Network's James Palmer he could do them if he was allowed by the coaches and training staff. Sanders is expected to a 'full go' for practice in two to three weeks, according to Palmer.

    Huddle Up: To be clear, clearance for full practice does not necessarily mean he is fully healthy. With that said, Sanders seems to be well ahead of schedule from the Achilles tear that ended his season just over eight months ago. At this point, the only question would appear to be if he'll see any action during preseason games; there seems to be no indication he's in any danger to miss Week 1. Nevertheless, owners should not expect him to begin this season at the same peak form he exhibited throughout most of 2018.

  • Baker Mayfield - QB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 7/18/19 10:12am ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield needs 42 touchdown passes in 2019 to break Dan Marino's record of 68 over a player's first two seasons.

    Huddle Up: Tossing 42 TD passes isn't likely as only one QB (Patrick Mahomes last season) has thrown that many in a season over the last five years. Mayfield, is though, a legit QB1 fantasy prospect this season.

  • Phillip Lindsay - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 7/18/19 9:17am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (wrist) participated in the first offensive rep of training camp Thursday, July 18, and received the handoff on a rushing play. Lindsay didn't take a single handoff all offseason after undergoing wrist surgery this past winter.

    Huddle Up: A healthier Royce Freeman will also see plenty of work in the Broncos' backfield, but Lindsay is expected to be the main man in the timeshare. Value him as a low-end RB2.
