Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Jamaal Charles - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/15/14 10:22am ET

    Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) had X-rays on his ankle, which were negative. He'll still undergo an MRI to determine if he has any ligament damage.

    Huddle Up: No word on how much time, if any, Charles will miss. Knile Davis looked great in his place and is a must-handcuff if you haven't done so already.

  • Eric Decker - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 9/15/14 10:22am ET

    Updating previous reports, New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) injured the same hamstring that bothered him in training camp Sunday, Sept. 14. However, this injury is believed to be more severe and will have an MRI.

    Huddle Up: No bueno for a wideout to have a troublesome hammy. If you're banking on Decker for fantasy help you'll need to keep tabs on the situation as if the injury is severe he could be down for a while.

  • Tavon Austin - WR - St. Louis Rams
    Posted 9/15/14 10:22am ET

    St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin (knee) sustained a knee injury during the team's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Austin will undergo more tests Monday, Sept. 15.

    Huddle Up: More injury issues for the Rams, and another reason for the talented yet enigmatic Austin to fail to live up to his potential.

  • Gerald McCoy - DT - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 9/15/14 10:22am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy (hand) reportedly suffered a broken hand during the team's game Sunday, Sept. 14, against the St. Louis Rams. The team and McCoy have not determined whether he will play through the injury.

    Huddle Up: Defensive players were hardly immune to the spate of injuries that hit the NFL in Week 2. The Bucs were already without both starting defensive ends; now they could be down a tackle as well.

  • Knowshon Moreno - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/15/14 10:22am ET

    Clarifying a previous item, Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) will miss at least four weeks, but it could be as many as eight weeks depending on his rehab.

    Huddle Up: That's at least a four week window for Lamar Miller to shine, assuming he's healthy enough to do so after getting nicked in the Week 2 game as well. Moreno was running well until the injury, but he'll need to do a better job of staying in shape than he did in the offseason to return to his former workload as soon as he's cleared.

  • Alshon Jeffery - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/15/14 10:22am ET

    Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) played in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers, and he was held to three receptions and 47 yards with no scores.

    Huddle Up: Jeffery and Brandon Marshall both entered Sunday night's game as questionable with limited practice time during the week; Marshall went off for three TDs while Jeffery looked... well, injured. Such is the fickle nature of the injury report and late games.

  • Vernon Davis - TE - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 9/15/14 10:22am ET

    San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in the second half of the Week 2 game against the Chicago Bears and did not return. He finished with three receptions and 39 yards.

    Huddle Up: No word on the severity of the injury, but the Niners could have used him late in the game as they attempted to rally so it must be relatively significant. We'll await word from the Niners as Davis gets checked out.

  • Reggie Bush - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 9/15/14 10:22am ET

    Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) was able to play in Week 2 against the Carolina Panthers, but he had just six runs for 26 yards and two receptions for six yards. It appears the team is trying to spread the reps among its backs and trying to limit the wear and tear on Bush's body at the same time.

    Huddle Up: Joique Bell paced the Lions' backfield in touches, though neither was particularly effective against a stout Panthers D. Going forward this backfield appears to be taking on many of the traits that OC Joe Lombardi's former team, the Saints, exhibited--and for fantasy purposes that's going to be frustrating.

  • Dexter McCluster - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/15/14 10:22am ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Dexter McCluster (foot) left the locker room after the Week 2 game against the Dallas Cowboys with his right foot in a walking boot.

    Huddle Up: The entire Tennessee offense looked to be limping Sunday, in stark contrast to expectations raised with the supposedly-porous Dallas defense coming to town. With McCluster down, perhaps rookie Bishop Sankey will get more touches.

  • Delanie Walker - TE - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/15/14 10:22am ET

    Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker had 10 catches for a career-high 142 yards in the Week 2 game against the Dallas Cowboys, including a 61-yard touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Jake Locker only had eyes for Walker on Sunday, and Walker responded. He proved to be a fantasy contributor last season; this game suggests he may be even a little bit more than that this season.

  • Jonathan Grimes - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 9/15/14 10:22am ET

    Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue carried 11 times for 40 yards in the Week 2 game against the Oakland Raiders, while RB Jonathan Grimes had just three carries for nine yards. Neither player had a reception.

    Huddle Up: Blue is fast becoming the handcuff to Arian Foster, who at this juncture doesn't appear to be in need of much of a handcuff. That said, Foster has an injury history so stashing Blue isn't necessary a bad roster move.

  • Jamaal Charles - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/14/14 9:53pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) suffered a sprained ankle in the Week 2 game against the Denver Broncos, head coach Andy Reid said Sunday, Sept. 14.

    Huddle Up: Sprains can be tricky so Charles' availability for Week 3 is up in the air right now. If he can't go, Knile Davis will be locked in as a RB2 versus Miami.

  • A.J. Green - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/14/14 8:20pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) suffered a turf toe injury in the Week 2 game against the Atlanta Falcons, a league source said Sunday, Sept. 14. He left early and was unable to return. It is uncertain how much time he will miss.

    Huddle Up: Green's status will be updated later in the week but there's a chance he could be out against Tennessee, so owners need to be prepared with other options.

  • Robert Griffin III - QB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/14/14 8:20pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) has been diagnosed with a dislocated ankle after leaving the Week 2 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He is expected to undergo further testing Monday, Sept. 15, to determine the severity of his injury.

    Huddle Up: Griffin will miss time for sure, it's just a matter of how much. Kirk Cousins is Washington's starting QB for what could be the rest of the season and a strong QB2 moving forward. Owners in need of QB help should target Cousins on the waiver wire this week.

  • Knowshon Moreno - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/14/14 8:20pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) is expected to miss four weeks due to a dislocated elbow, according to a source. He was injured in the Week 2 game against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: Lamar Miller will take over as the No. 1 back in Miami. Owners with the roster room should try to hold onto Moreno for the second half of the season.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/14/14 8:14pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) suffered a sprained AC joint in the first quarter of the Week 2 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. 'I feel a little better from when it first happened,' Jackson said Sunday, Sept. 14. 'The player actually just fell right on my shoulder.' Jackson said he considers himself day to day, and it is too early to know if he'll be ready for the Week 3 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: If Jackson can't play in Week 3 he'll be replaced by a combination of Andre Roberts and Ryan Grant. Both receivers would have a strong matchup against a weak Eagles secondary.

  • Ryan Mathews - RB - San Diego Chargers
    Posted 9/14/14 8:14pm ET

    Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee) is scheduled to undergo an MRI for his injured knee, according to a source. There is concern he might have a sprained medial collateral ligament.

    Huddle Up: Mathews was carted off in the third quarter and the injury didn't look good. Donald Brown would see an expanded role if Mathews is out long-term. Brown will be a top waiver wire pickup this week.

  • Alshon Jeffery - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/14/14 8:14pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) is active for the Week 2 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Jeffery will play against the 49ers Sunday night. He's a strong WR2 at less than 100 percent.

  • Brandon Marshall - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/14/14 8:14pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) will be active for the Week 2 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Marshall will play against the 49ers Sunday night. He's a low end WR1 at less than 100 percent.

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/14/14 8:14pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (ankle) left the Week 2 game against the Buffalo Bills due to an ankle injury, although it is not considered serious.

    Huddle Up: Miller moves into the lead back role with Knowshon Moreno sidelined 4-8 weeks with a dislocated elbow. Miller will be an RB2 flex play option next week against Kansas City.
