Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Brandon Marshall - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 2/11/17 5:21pm ET

    New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall said he will 'absolutely' change his leadership style after his vocal approach caused friction in the locker room in 2016.

    Huddle Up: Marshall could end up being released in the offseason, and if he lands with a better offense, he could still be a WR2 candidate. If he is back with the Jets, he shouldn't be trusted as more than a WR3.

  • Pierre Garcon - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 2/11/17 5:00pm ET

    Impending free-agent WR Pierre Garcon is expected to receive offers in the neighborhood of $9 million per year, according to ESPN.com's John Keim.

    Huddle Up: The Los Angeles Rams, Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers are among the teams expected to be among the most interested. The price tag would suggest teams view him as a No. 1 receiver, but his best fit would be as a No. 2. It's going to take a bit of a perfect storm in order to break the bank, and he's likely to be no more than a fantasy WR4 regardless of where he lands.

  • Jack Doyle - TE - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 2/11/17 3:05pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle is expected to have several suitors in free agency following his breakout 2016 season in which he finished with 59 catches for 584 yards and five touchdowns, according to the Indianapolis Star.

    Huddle Up: The Colts absolutely love what Doyle brings to the locker room and it should be noted he pretty much rivaled Coby Fleener's best seasons in Indy with the year he just had. However, Dwayne Allen received a huge four-year contract last season and isn't going anywhere, while the Colts are high on the upside of Erik Swoope, With all the help Indianapolis needs on defense, it is possible Doyle will be allowed to walk if he doesn't agree to a team-friendly deal.

  • Julian Edelman - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 2/11/17 12:44pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman caught all three of his touchdowns on the road this season. He finished the season with 43 receptions and 522 yards at home while catching 55 receptions for 584 yards on the road.

    Huddle Up: Edelman had a slow period near the beginning of the season but finished strong with at least 75 yards in seven of the last eight regular season games. He should continue to be the No. 1 receiver for the Patriots and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for fantasy owners.

  • Tom Brady - QB - New England Patriots
    Posted 2/11/17 12:43pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady threw for 1,973 yards, 18 touchdowns and zero interceptions on the road this season. He threw for 1,581 yards, 10 touchdowns and two interceptions at home.

    Huddle Up: Brady played great after serving his four-game suspension and finished the season with another Super Bowl win. He will continue to be the starting quarterback for the Patriots as long as he wants and should be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.

  • Jamison Crowder - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 2/10/17 9:31pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder led all slot receivers in average yards of separation created per target in 2016, and he finished third on the team with 99 targets and had a team-high seven scores.

    Huddle Up: With Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson potentially leaving in the offseason, Crowder could be primed for a big jump in production. He should be a solid WR3 in 2017, and he will have even more upside in PPR formats.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 2/10/17 8:58pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams tied for second in the NFL with 12 touchdown receptions in 2016, and QB Aaron Rodgers said Adams was able to produce because he was finally healthy.

    Huddle Up: Adams still has the occasional drop, but he proved to be a valuable weapon for the passing attack, especially in the red zone. At worst, he should be a high-end WR3 in 2017.

  • Delanie Walker - TE - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 2/10/17 8:27pm ET

    Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker said the offense needs a speedy receiver who can take the top off the defense and open up things in the middle of the field.

    Huddle Up: If the Titans do spend one of their two first-round picks on a receiver, that player would be worth an immediate look in fantasy circles. Even if a receiver isn't added, Walker will remain one of the safest TE1 options in 2017.

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick - QB - New York Jets
    Posted 2/10/17 8:08pm ET

    New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's contract voids Friday, Feb. 10, but he likely won't become an official free agent until March 9.

    Huddle Up: After struggling throughout 2016, Fitzpatrick is unlikely to land a starting gig no matter where he plays in 2017. His surprise 2015 campaign was probably his last run as a viable fantasy option.

  • Josh McCown - QB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 2/10/17 7:53pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo would provide a 'bright' future at the quarterback spot for the Cleveland Browns, according to free-agent QB Josh McCown. 'I've seen him on tape because we had a common opponent in Miami,'' McCown said. 'He made some high level throws and did some things that would get you excited about his ability to maybe carry a franchise.'

    Huddle Up: Garoppolo's is an intriguing, albeit unproven, quarterback option, but Cleveland wouldn't be an ideal destination as far as his fantasy value is concerned.

  • Todd Gurley - RB - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 2/10/17 7:14pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley told head coach Sean McVay he wanted another chance to work with running backs coach Skip Peete. 'When you've got a key player like that, you want to try to demonstrate that you're going to listen,' McVay said.

    Huddle Up: Gurley was one of the biggest disappointments of 2016, and with the Rams in rebuilding mode, a major rebound isn't a guarantee. On the plus side, he is going to see plenty of touches, and he has enough upside to grab as a RB2.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 2/10/17 3:09pm ET

    Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson said he would like to re-sign with the Redskins this offseason but will accept the best offer he receives in free agency.

    Huddle Up: Jackson will receive interest from multiple teams once free agency begins, so the Redskins may not able to re-sign him. Jackson is coming off a terrific 2016 season and likely will be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for a team next season. Owners in fantasy leagues can consider Jackson a No. 3 receiver for their teams.

  • Alshon Jeffery - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 2/10/17 12:58pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery has drawn interest from the Philadelphia Eagles, according to 'several league sources.'

    Huddle Up: Jeffery is about to become a free agent and it would make a lot of sense that he's linked to Philadelphia, who desperately need to add a big-time receiver for rising young quarterback Carson Wentz. The five-year veteran endured his most disappointing campaign since his rookie season, marred by a four-game PED-related suspension, but could be an outstanding buy-low candidate across all leagues if he were to end up an Eagle. Jeffery is still capable of at least providing WR2 value.

  • Julius Thomas - TE - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 2/10/17 10:29am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas' contract calls for $3 million of his $7 million base salary for 2017 to become fully guaranteed at the end of the day Friday, Feb. 10, according to multiple sources.

    Huddle Up: This obviously means if the Jaguars are going to part ways with Thomas this offseason, today would be a good day to make it happen. Jacksonville doesn't really need the cap space, but Thomas has been something of an injury-riddled disappointment in two years with the Jags. Ben Koyack flashed some potential throughout the season and could emerge as a serviceable fantasy TE2 in 2017 if Thomas is cut.

  • Colin Kaepernick - QB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 2/10/17 9:05am ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is not expected to be a trade target again this offseason for the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: Kaepernick-to-Denver looked like it was going to happen last offseason, but the compensation can never get worked out, and the Broncos ended up sticking with Trevor Siemian and drafting Paxton Lynch. Denver has reaffirmed its commitment to developing both several times already this offseason, so it appears Kaepernick will have to look elsewhere for a potential starting gig if he opts out of his deal with San Francisco.

  • Randall Cobb - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 2/10/17 7:05am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb is entering a make-or-break year in 2017, according to beat writer Rob Demovsky.

    Huddle Up: Cobb's numbers have fallen two years in a row. Granted, he has battled through injuries both seasons. The Packers have a couple of options developing at the position, and Davante Adams is in his walk year. Cobb will be a WR3 option with upside in fantasy in what will be a year he needs to make a statement.

  • Shane Vereen - RB - New York Giants
    Posted 2/9/17 8:02pm ET

    New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (arm) is expected to be back with the team in 2017 as long as his rehab from a torn triceps continues to go well, according to beat writer Jordan Raanan.

    Huddle Up: If Vereen returns, he should immediately become a factor in the passing game and have flex value in PPR formats.

  • Jack Doyle - TE - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 2/9/17 7:54pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent TE Jack Doyle will likely have multiple suitors in free agency, according to beat writer Stephen Holder.

    Huddle Up: Despite sharing duties with Dwayne Allen, Doyle emerged as a viable weapon in the passing game. If he is given the chance to be the No. 1 tight end somewhere, he could be a TE1 candidate in 2017.

  • Phillip Dorsett - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 2/9/17 7:44pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett had four catches of at least 50 yards last season, but he finished with 30 receiving yards or less in eight games.

    Huddle Up: Dorsett has big-play speed, but he has yet to show he can provide decent week-to-week production. He will be a late-round lottery ticket in 2017 drafts.

  • Anquan Boldin - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 2/9/17 7:28pm ET

    Detroit Lions impending free-agent WR Anquan Boldin said he is looking forward to seeing what opportunities present themselves in free agency and is in no hurry to decide his future.

    Huddle Up: If Boldin does decide to return, it will likely be with a team that plans to utilize him. He showed last year he can still provide useful depth as a WR4.
