Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Jordy Nelson - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/23/18 5:40pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson rolled up six receptions for 173 yards and a touchdown on eight targets in Week 3 against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: This was Nelson's first 100-yard since Christmas Eve of the 2016 season when he had 154 yards and two touchdowns against the Vikings as a member of the Packers. His yardage total was highest since he dropped 209 yards on the Jets on Sept. 14, 2014. Despite the big game he should still be treated more as a WR3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 4.

  • Doug Martin - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/23/18 5:37pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Doug Martin rushed nine times for 43 yards in the Week 3 game against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Martin did a good job spelling Marshawn Lynch, averaging 4.8 yards per tote. However, he remains nothing more than a RB4 in fantasy leagues as long as Lynch is healthy. The Raiders host the Browns in Week 4.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/23/18 5:34pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch rushed 19 times for 64 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the Miami Dolphins and he added three grabs for 22 yards.

    Huddle Up: Lynch has scored a rushing touchdown in every game this season and he has at least two grabs in each of his three outings, too. Treat him as a RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 4 against the Cleveland Browns.

  • Derek Carr - QB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/23/18 5:23pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 27-of-39 passes for 345 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Week 3 game against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Carr had his second 300-yard game, and he has at least 288 passing yards in each of his three outings, but he has just two TDs and five INTs. It's been an ugly start for the Raiders, but Carr remains a decent fantasy option going forward. He'll jack it up early and often, especially if the team continues to lose. The Raiders host Baker Mayfield and the Browns in Week 4.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/23/18 4:47pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu posted four receptions for 36 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has one more touchdown than Julio Jones so far through three games. He'll try to keep up the scoring ways when his former team, the Cincinnati Bengals, pay a visit in Week 4. Treat him as a low-end RB4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams for that one.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/23/18 4:44pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones posted five receptions for 96 yards on six targets in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints, but he was held out of the end zone again.

    Huddle Up: That's three games and no touchdowns for Jones. To make matters worse, rookie Calvin Ridley exploded for 146 yards and three scores in the OT loss, and Mohamed Sanu even got onto the board in Matt Ryan's career day. Jones remains an obvious WR1 in fantasy and he'll get his soon enough. The Falcons host the Bengals in Week 4.

  • Calvin Ridley - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/23/18 4:35pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley posted seven receptions for 146 yards and three touchdowns in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Ridley's performance certainly made owners of Julio Jones sad, but those who had stock in Ridley were certainly ecstatic. He'll try to build upon the big game in Week 4 against the Bengals. Target Ridley as a WR3 or flex option with plenty of obvious upside going forward.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/23/18 4:32pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed 15 times for just 33 yards in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints and he registered two catches for 14 yards and a score.

    Huddle Up: Coleman was mostly bottled up in the backfield, salvaging the stat line for fantasy owners with the receiving touchdown. He was serving as the primary back for the second straight weekend with Devonta Freeman (knee) sidelined again. The Falcons host the Bengals, and Coleman is a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option if he starts again, as Carolina's Christian McCaffrey shredded the Cincy rush D in Week 3.

  • Matt Ryan - QB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/23/18 4:26pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 26-of-35 passes for 374 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 3 loss against the New Orleans Saints. The five TDs were a career high and he tied the franchise record set by QB Wade Wilson back in Week 15 of the 1992 season.

    Huddle Up: After laying an egg in Week 1 with no TDs, Ryan has nine total touchdowns over the past two games. He'll look to keep it rolling in Week 4 against the Cincinnati Bengals, a defense which allowed four total touches to Cam Newton on Sunday.

  • Ben Watson - TE - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 9/23/18 4:20pm ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Benjamin Watson hauled in five receptions for 71 yards on six targets in Week 3 against the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: The 37-year-old is proving he still has plenty left in the tank, racking up at least three receptions in each of his three outings with 12 grabs, 134 yards and 15 targets through three games. Still, his lack of scores make him more of a TE2 in most leagues heading into Week 4 against the Giants.

  • Michael Thomas - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 9/23/18 4:16pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas managed 10 receptions for 129 yards on 10 targets in Week 3 against the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: Thomas has been a catch machine, posting at least 10 grabs in each of his three games to date while racking up 40 targets with 398 yards and three scores. The best news of all is that Week 3 was his first game of the season without losing a fumble. He'll play his first game of 2018 outdoors when the Saints travel to meet the Giants in Week 4.

  • Alvin Kamara - RB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 9/23/18 4:09pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 16 times for 66 yards in Week 3 against the Atlanta Falcons and he added 15 grabs for 124 yards on 20 targets. No running back had more than 18 targets in a game since the NFL started tracking the stat.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy owners could complain that Kamara was held out of the end zone, and he hasn't scored since registering three touchdowns in Week 1. However, fantasy owners can't complain too vehemently. He'll look to keep it going in Week 4 on the road against the Giants in the first game of the season outdoors for the Saints.

  • Drew Brees - QB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 9/23/18 4:06pm ET

    New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 39-of-49 passes for 396 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 3 win against the Atlanta Falcons and he rushed for two scores.

    Huddle Up: Brees single-handedly helped the Saints to a much-needed overtime road victory, rebounding after a below-average performance last week against the Browns. He'll try to keep the good times rolling on the road against the New York Giants in Week 4 in the team's first venture outdoors in 2018.

  • Josh Gordon - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/23/18 3:58pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) is inactive for the Week 3 game against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Gordon was just acquired earlier in the week, so it was unlikely he would debut with a limited knowledge of the playbook and offense, especially if he isn't 100 percent. Perhaps he'll make his team debut in Week 4 against the Miami Dolphins at home.

  • Chris Conley - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/23/18 3:48pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Chris Conley had two grabs for just 13 yards in Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers, but he was able to score a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Conley is well down the pecking order for targets behind Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins, but he has managed touchdowns in back-to-back games for the first time in his career. Despite the two scores, he has been targeted just six times in three games and has minimal fantasy appeal heading into Week 4 in Denver.

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/23/18 3:46pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins posted five grabs for 55 yards and a touchdown on eight targets in Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Watkins is the tertiary receiving option in Kansas City behind Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce, but the speedy veteran flashed in this one. He remains a productive WR4 or flex fantasy play heading into Week 4 against the Denver Broncos on Monday night.

  • Travis Kelce - TE - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/23/18 3:34pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce managed eight receptions for 114 yards on 10 targets in Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: After laying an egg in Week 1, Kelce has posted the kind of numbers expected from a bona fide TE1 in fantasy. He has 15 grabs for 223 yards and two scores on 20 targets over the past two games. He'll look to keep it rolling in Week 4 in Denver on Monday Night Football.

  • Kareem Hunt - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/23/18 3:31pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed 18 times for 44 yards and two touchdowns in Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Hunt's average of just 2.4 yards per rush isn't going to make fantasy owners very happy, but the two scores cushion the blow a bit. He exploded on the scene last season, but these were his first scores of the year and he has been held to 50 or fewer total yards from scrimmage in two of his three outings so far. Treat him more as a RB2 in fantasy leagues heading into Week 4 against the Denver Broncos on Monday night.

  • Patrick Mahomes - QB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/23/18 3:27pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 24-of-38 passes for 314 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 3 win against the San Francisco 49ers. He now holds the NFL record with 13 TD passes through the first three games of a season.

    Huddle Up: Mahomes continues to set records on a regular basis, as he is showing no signs of slowing down in a potent Kansas City offense. The single-season record for TD passes in a season was 55, set by Peyton Mannng in 2013. At this rate Mahomes could flirt with that number, although he has to slow down at some point, doesn't he?

  • Pierre Garcon - WR - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 9/23/18 3:19pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon had just one grab for 11 yards on four targets in Week 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: The catch total and yardage were season lows for the 11th-year veteran. He has managed just seven grabs for 89 yards on 14 targets through three games. Perhaps Garcon will jell better with C.J. Beathard, as he might be taking over the starting duties if Jimmy Garoppolo is forced to the sidelines with what the team fears is a torn ACL.
