Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Amari Cooper - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 1/12/19 8:28pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper caught six of his nine targets for 65 yards and a touchdown in a 30-22 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the divisional round Saturday, Jan. 12.

    Huddle Up: After providing a major spark to the Dallas offense after coming aboard, Cooper seems destined to be the focal point of the passing attack for the Cowboys in 2019 and a WR2 for fantasy owners.

  • Dak Prescott - QB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 1/12/19 8:23pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 20 of his 32 passes for 266 yards and a touchdown and rushed twice for three yards and another score in a 30-22 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the divisional round Saturday, Jan. 12.

    Huddle Up: Prescott had a decent outing, but he just couldn't make enough throws to take down the Rams. He had some stronger outings down the stretch after the Cowboys acquired Amari Cooper, but Prescott looks like a fantasy backup heading into 2019.

  • Ezekiel Elliott - RB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 1/12/19 8:19pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed 20 times for 47 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for 19 yards in a 30-22 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the divisional round Saturday, Jan. 12.

    Huddle Up: The matchup looked great on paper, but the Rams made sure not to let Elliott beat them. Although his season ends on a sour note, Elliott will remain the focal point of the Dallas offense heading into 2019, and he should be a top-five pick in all fantasy formats.

  • Tyrell Williams - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 1/12/19 6:55pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Tyrell Williams faces the New England Patriots in the divisional round Sunday, Jan. 13, and the Patriots allowed 59 pass plays of 20-plus yards during the regular season. Williams led the Chargers with 15.9 yards per reception this year.

    Huddle Up: Williams is an all-or-nothing, big-play dependent option for fantasy owners, but facing a New England defense that has given up some big pass plays, he could be a sneaky sleeper in playoff contests.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 1/12/19 6:41pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon faces the New England Patriots in the divisional round of the playoffs Sunday, Jan. 13, and the Patriots allowed the third-most yards per rush during the regular season.

    Huddle Up: Gordon struggled to find much running room against a tough Baltimore defense to open the playoffs, but the workhorse back could be in line for a much bigger performance against New England. He should be one of the safest fantasy options for playoff contests this weekend.

  • Marlon Mack - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 1/12/19 5:42pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (hip) pranced nine times for 51 yards, missing out on his only target in a divisional playoff loss to the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday, Jan. 12. He did leave early with a hip injury.

    Huddle Up: Mack's year ended in disappointment, but he took the league by storm en route to over 1,000 yards from scrimmage and 10 total touchdowns in only 12 games. He has RB1 upside, but it's better to draft him as an RB2.

  • Eric Ebron - TE - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 1/12/19 5:36pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron caught five of nine targets for 51 yards in a divisional playoff loss to the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday, Jan. 12.

    Huddle Up: Ebron's stellar stint with his new team has finally come to an end. The question now is, will he be able to even come close to duplicating it? Scoring 13 touchdowns again is unlikely, but he now possesses top five tight end appeal.

  • T.Y. Hilton - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 1/12/19 5:31pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton caught four of his 10 targets for 60 yards and a touchdown in a divisional playoff loss to the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday, Jan. 12.

    Huddle Up: Hilton really rebounded in 2018 with Andrew Luck back at full health. His 1,270 yards were the third most in a season of his career. As long as Luck stays healthy, Hilton merits top 10 wide receiver appeal.

  • Andrew Luck - QB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 1/12/19 5:26pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck completed just 19 of 36 passes for 203 yards and a touchdown in a divisional playoff loss to the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday, Jan. 12.

    Huddle Up: Luck was pressured more than usual and his passing was obviously affected by that. The Chiefs defense came to play and the Colts offense couldn't keep up. Luck did have a tremendous year, though, and proved he's back in the top five fantasy quarterback conversation.

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 1/12/19 5:19pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins hauled in six of his eight tarets for 62 yards in a divisional playoff win versus the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, Jan. 12.

    Huddle Up: Watkins and Tyreek Hill can form a formidable receiving duo next season if Watkins can stay healthy. Health has been a big issue for Watkins throughout his career and it's what makes him a risky draftee.

  • Tyreek Hill - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 1/12/19 5:15pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill caught eight of his 13 targets and torched the Indianapolis Colts for 108 total yards and a rushing touchdown in a divisional playoff win Saturday, Jan. 12.

    Huddle Up: Hill exploded this season with Patrick Mahomes at quarterback, achieving overall WR1 status in standard scoring formats. Regression can be expected, but not much with Mahomes. He deserves to be drafted as a top-five fantasy wide receiver.

  • Travis Kelce - TE - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 1/12/19 5:10pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught seven of his 10 targets for 108 yards in a divisional playoff win versus the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, Jan. 12.

    Huddle Up: Kelce served as an effective safety blanket against the Colts' zone defense. He's in the upper stratosphere among fantasy tight ends and should be one of the first three at his position taken off 2019 fantasy draft boards.

  • Damien Williams - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 1/12/19 5:05pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams ran 25 times for 129 yards and a touchdown in a divisional playoff win versus the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, Jan. 12. He also caught five passes for 25 yards.

    Huddle Up: Spencer Ware must be sweating profusely after Williams' performance today and over the last several games. Ware and Williams may very well comprise a committee in 2019 as Williams has deservedly played himself into a larger role.

  • Patrick Mahomes - QB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 1/12/19 5:00pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 27 of 41 passes for 278 yards and ran for eight yards and a touchdown in a divisional playoff win versus the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, Jan. 12.

    Huddle Up: It's a rarity for Mahomes to have a goose egg in the passing touchdown column. The Colts did a good job overall holding Mahomes in check, but the Chiefs won easily anyway. Mahomes is far and away the best fantasy quarterback heading into the 2019 season.

  • Marlon Mack - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 1/12/19 4:48pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (hip) suffered a hip injury during the Divisional Round playoff game and will not return.

    Huddle Up: Mack was fairly quiet against the Kansas City Chiefs but played well during the second half of the season with three 100-yard games and six touchdowns in the previous five games. His role next season will be determined by what the team does during the offseason, but he can be a No. 2 running back if he keeps the starting job.

  • Cole Beasley - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 1/12/19 3:30pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley (ankle) will be active Saturday, Jan. 12, against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Beasley hasn't been much of a factor for the Cowboys for the most part. He could be counted on even less today coming off a sprained ankle. Starting him is playing with fire.

  • Antonio Brown - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 1/12/19 3:22pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown will be the subject of trade offers this offseason. Numerous general managers believe the Steelers could obtain at least a second-round pick for Brown, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Among the teams who could be interested in Brown are the Indianapolis Colts, San Francisco 49ers, New York Jets and Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: Brown's potential trade will be one of the hottest topics of the offseason. His locker room presence is evidently an issue, but teams can overlook and risk that for his talent. Wherever he goes, he's still a No. 1 fantasy receiver.

  • Ryan Tannehill - QB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 1/12/19 1:18pm ET

    Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill is one of the quarterbacks the Jacksonville Jaguars are considering pursuing this offseason, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Tannehill is expected to be traded or released this offseason, but it is not known how many teams may have interest. He has been limited to 24 games over the last two seasons because of injuries and probably would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he starts for the Jaguars in 2019.

  • Nick Foles - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/12/19 1:00pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles is one of the quarterbacks the Jacksonville Jaguars are considering pursuing this offseason, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Foles has taken over for an injured Carson Wentz for the second straight year and is playing well again. Foles likely will have multiple suitors if he is available this offseason, but the Jaguars will be in that mix. Foles probably would be a high-end No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he joins the Jaguars.

  • Joe Flacco - QB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 1/12/19 12:49pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco is one of the quarterbacks the Jacksonville Jaguars are considering pursuing this offseason, according to sources. Flacco is believed to be open to joining the Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Flacco lost his starting job this season and likely will be playing with a new team in 2019. The Jaguars would have to trade for him, but he would be the starting quarterback if he joins the Jaguars. He has played well at times during his career but would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he plays for Jacksonville.
