Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Damien Williams - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 1/12/19 12:44pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams is expected to be the starting running back for the Chiefs in the Divisional Round playoff game.

    Huddle Up: Williams has played well while Spencer Ware has been sidelined and should receive a solid amount of touches during the game. He can be considered a No. 2 running back or flex option in fantasy leagues.

  • Antonio Brown - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 1/12/19 10:59am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown is expected to receive interest from the Denver Broncos if he is placed on the trade block this offseason.

    Huddle Up: Brown would reunite with Emmanuel Sanders if he joins the Broncos, but he likely will be pursued by multiple teams if he is available in a trade. He should be considered a No. 1 fantasy receiver next season no matter where he plays.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 1/12/19 9:26am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson is a player that head coach Bruce Arians wants to keep on the roster. Jackson asked for a trade during the regular season.

    Huddle Up: Jackson started off the 2018 season strong with three 100-yard performances in the first four games but posted only 143 yards during the second half of the season. He will need to work on his chemistry with Jameis Winston if he returns to the team next season. He can be a No. 3 fantasy receiver if he plays well.

  • Spencer Ware - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 1/12/19 9:05am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) will participate in pregame warmups before the Divisional Round playoff game, but the team is not optimistic about his availability for the game, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Owners should check the inactive list for Ware's availability, but he would be a risky option if he plays. Damien Williams will be the starting running back if Ware is ruled out and can be a No. 2 fantasy running back or flex option in fantasy leagues.

  • Blake Jarwin - TE - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 1/12/19 8:52am ET

    The Dallas Cowboys are optimistic that TE Blake Jarwin (ankle) will be available for the Divisional Round playoff game against the Los Angeles Rams Saturday, Jan. 12, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Jarwin had been listed as questionable on the injury report despite not practicing at all during the week. He can be viewed as a sneaky fantasy play in postseason games, just two weeks removed from a three-touchdown performance in the regular-season finale versus the New York Giants.

  • Cole Beasley - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 1/12/19 8:38am ET

    The Dallas Cowboys are optimistic that WR Cole Beasley (ankle) will be available for the Divisional Round playoff game versus the Los Angeles Rams Saturday, Jan. 12, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Beasley was listed as questionable on the injury report despite not practicing at all during the week. Assuming that he is active, he should be viewed as a sneaky play in postseason fantasy games despite the tough matchup.

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 1/12/19 8:21am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is expected to play in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, Jan. 12.

    Huddle Up: Watkins was listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited practice participant throughout the week. He has been sidelined since mid-November due to a foot injury but is worthy of consideration as a flex option in postseason fantasy contests.

  • Zach Zenner - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 1/11/19 6:59pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Zach Zenner was praised for his consistency by head coach Matt Patricia. 'He's somebody you can put in any situation, and he'll execute to the highest of his ability,' Patricia said.

    Huddle Up: Kerryon Johnson figures to open 2019 as the starter in the Detroit backfield, but Zenner could have some value as a handcuff in deeper leagues.

  • Alshon Jeffery - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/11/19 3:04pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (ribs) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 11, but is not on the injury report for the Divisional Round playoff game.

    Huddle Up: Jeffery has been targeted at least five times in each of the last six games and has shown good chemistry with Nick Foles. He should be considered a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Golden Tate - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/11/19 3:02pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR Golden Tate (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 11, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional Round playoff game.

    Huddle Up: Tate was quiet during the final month of the regular season but was targeted eight times during the Wild Card playoff game and finished with 46 yards and one touchdown. He should have a solid role in the passing game this week and can be a flex option.

  • Mike Wallace - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/11/19 2:57pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR Mike Wallace (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 11, and is listed as questionable for the Divisional Round playoff game.

    Huddle Up: Wallace probably will be a game-time decision, so owners can check the inactive list for his status. He has not played since the beginning of the season and probably would not have a big role if he is active. He probably should be benched in all fantasy leagues.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 1/11/19 1:59pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 11, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional Round playoff game.

    Huddle Up: Ginn should have a solid role in the passing game against the Philadelphia Eagles and played well in his first game off the Reserve/Injured list. He can be considered a No. 2 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.

  • Hunter Henry - TE - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 1/11/19 1:39pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 11, but is listed as questionable for the Divisional Round playoff game.

    Huddle Up: Henry appears to be on track to make his season debut against the New England Patriots. He could see some targets in the passing game but probably will be too risky for owners to consider for their starting lineups.

  • Cole Beasley - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 1/11/19 10:19am ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley (ankle) is listed as questionable for the the team's divisional-playoff game Saturday, Jan. 12, in Los Angeles, but owner Jerry Jones is optimistic the slot wideout will be able to play. 'My feeling right now is to play with Cole Beasley,' Jones told 105.3 FM The Fan in an interview Friday. 'He's given every indication he can force himself through it. Right now, we're planning on having Cole Beasley.'

    Huddle Up: Beasley has had at least three receptions in each of his last four games, but if he can't go or is limited, look for more targets for WRs Michael Gallup and Tavon Austin.

  • Marlon Mack - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 1/10/19 8:28pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack delivers 'body blows' in the run game in addition to having big-play speed, according to head coach Frank Reich, and QB Andrew Luck said Mack has matured as an all-around back.

    Huddle Up: Mack has emerged as a legitimate lead back this season, and after scoring five times in the final four regular season games, he ran for 148 yards and a score in a win over Houston in the wild-card round. Mack should remain a strong fantasy option in playoff contests, and he looks like a high-end RB2 candidate for 2019.

  • Calvin Ridley - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 1/10/19 7:40pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley finished his rookie season with numbers similar to what retired WR Marvin Harrison put up as a rookie. Ridley had 64 catches for 821 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2018, and Harrison had 64 catches for 836 yards and eight touchdowns in his rookie year.

    Huddle Up: It's more than a little too soon to say Ridley will have the same career trajectory as Harrison, but Ridley did make a great first impression despite being the No. 3 option in Atlanta's passing game. He will enter 2019 as a WR3 with plenty of upside because of his nose for the end zone.

  • Case Keenum - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 1/10/19 7:02pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum is still the starting quarterback for the time being, according to head coach Vic Fangio.

    Huddle Up: Granted, Fangio's statement doesn't exactly mean much heading into the offseason, and after Keenum threw 18 touchdowns compared to 15 interceptions in 2018, he is anything but a lock to remain the long-term starter in Denver. If he does open 2019 under center for the Broncos, he will only be a low-end QB2 for fantasy owners.

  • Jameis Winston - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 1/10/19 6:38pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich is a 'rising star,' according to head coach Bruce Arians, and Arians is optimistic that Leftwich can help QB Jameis Winston improve as a player.

    Huddle Up: Winston has the talent and the weapons to be a QB1 this season, but the question is whether or not Leftwich and Arians can bring the best out of the quarterback on a weekly basis. Consider him a QB2 with upside for now.

  • Jameis Winston - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 1/10/19 6:10pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston just needs to relax and let his natural ability take over, according to head coach Bruce Arians. 'Talent is no issue,' Arians said. 'It's just becoming a little bit smarter.'

    Huddle Up: Winston will be at the helm of an offense that is loaded with weapons, but it remains to be seen if Arians can help the quarterback find some consistency. Consider him a QB2 with upside heading into 2019.

  • Mike Wallace - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/10/19 3:52pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR Mike Wallace (ankle) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 10.

    Huddle Up: Simply put, Wallace isn't an option to deploy this week in any DFS games even if he does suit up. Wallace has played in only two games this year, failing to catch a pass in either contest. He also hasn't played in a game yet since being activated from the injured reserve list.
