Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 11/23/15 10:08am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) is believed to be dealing with a sports hernia. Surgery would end his regular season with the possibility of returning in the playoffs.

    Huddle Up: Thomas Rawls has proven to be a more than capable fill-in; he's the guy to grab both short-term and potentially long-term, as Lynch has been injury-plagued and more than a little high maintenance in Seattle.

  • Brian Hoyer - QB - Houston Texans
    Posted 11/23/15 10:08am ET

    Houston Texans QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) will remain the starting quarterback when he is healthy, head coach Bill O'Brien said Sunday, Nov. 22. Hoyer's concussion symptoms have subsided and he is expected to start in Week 12 against the New Orleans Saints. 'Hoyer is our starter,' O'Brien said. 'When he comes back, when he's healthy, he'll come back in there and we've spoken to T.J. about that.'

    Huddle Up: Good news for Hoyer, as no team faces a more favorable fantasy schedule for quarterbacks than the Texans.

  • Peyton Manning - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 11/23/15 10:08am ET

    Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) is 'absolutely determined' to get himself healthy, a source with knowledge of the situation said Sunday, Nov. 22. Manning firmly believes he will be able to play again this season. In addition, he currently intends to play in 2016, even if it will not be with the Broncos, the source said.

    Huddle Up: Peyton is not ready to go quietly into that good night, but he's a few years older than the last time he faced a similar situation--coming off a significant injury, with questions about his ability to remain a high-level quarterback--and there may be fewer suitors this time around.

  • Shaun Draughn - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 11/23/15 12:20am ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn carried 12 times for 37 yards in the Week 11 game against the Seattle Seahawks, and he added eight receptions for 40 yards. Draughn was targeted 11 times.

    Huddle Up: Carlos Hyde doesn't appear close to returning and Draughn is dominating the touches in the 49ers' backfield. He's worth adding this week if you need help at running back.

  • Anquan Boldin - WR - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 11/23/15 12:20am ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Anquan Boldin (hamstring) posted five receptions for a game-high 93 yards in the Week 11 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Boldin wasn't 100 percent but played well in a tough matchup against Seattle. Boldin was dropped in a lot of leagues but has more fantasy value with Blaine Gabbert under center. He's back on the WR3/4 radar.

  • Frank Gore - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 11/23/15 12:20am ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore (knee) said he banged up his knee in the Week 11 game against the Atlanta Falcons, but he expects to be fine.

    Huddle Up: Gore was seen limping on the sidelines and was replaced by Ahmad Bradshaw. His injury is something to monitor over the next couple of days but it looks like he avoided anything serious.

  • Eddie Lacy - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 11/22/15 9:45pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy had 22 carries for a season-high 100 yards and one catch for six yards in a 30-13 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Lacy had his first 100-yard game of the season against Minnesota. It would be a huge boost for Lacy owners if he can turn it on over the final month of the season. Lacy gets the Bears next on Thanksgiving night.

  • Jameis Winston - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 11/22/15 9:45pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston tied a rookie record with five touchdown passes in a 45-17 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 11. He completed 19 of 29 passes for 246 yards.

    Huddle Up: Winston had actually been on a nice three-game fantasy stretch before last week but nothing like this five touchdown explosion. Winston has been playing well over the last month though and is an intriguing play next week when he takes on the Colts. He'll be one of the top adds for owners looking for quarterback help.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 11/22/15 9:04pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) will head to Philadelphia Monday, Nov. 23, to visit a specialist about his abdominal issue, head coach Pete Carroll said Sunday, Nov. 22.

    Huddle Up: Lynch has been battling injuries all season and there's a chance he could be out beyond Sunday. Thomas Rawls will be the top waiver wire target this week. Rawls will be a weekly RB1 if Lynch is out for an extended period of time.

  • Spencer Ware - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 11/22/15 9:04pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware carried 11 times for 96 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 11 game against the San Diego Chargers. He also had a five-yard reception on his only target.

    Huddle Up: Charcandrick West injured his hamstring and Ware was the next man up to feast on the Chargers' dreadful rush defense. Ware will get the start next week if West can't go. He'll be a RB2 in the Chiefs' offense.

  • Colin Kaepernick - QB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 11/21/15 4:10pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (shoulder) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Nov. 21.

    Huddle Up: Kaepernick will have surgery to repair a torn labrum on his non-throwing shoulder. It ends a nightmare year for Kaepernick who was ultimately benched two weeks ago for Blaine Gabbert. The 49ers will go with Gabbert as their starter for the rest of the season. Kaepernick has likely played his last snap for the 49ers.

  • John Brown - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 11/21/15 4:10pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (hamstring) expects to play in Week 11 against the Cincinnati Bengals, although he is frustrated with his nagging hamstring injury. 'I don't feel like the same [player] right now,' Brown said. 'It's frustrating just to sit out of practice, [and] see my time working hard. I want to be with those guys.' Brown has been limited in practice this past week and is listed as questionable.

    Huddle Up: Both Brown and Michael Floyd are game-time decisions this week. If Brown can play, he'll be a WR3 against a tough Bengals pass defense.

  • Tony Romo - QB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 11/21/15 1:00pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (clavicle) has been activated from the Reserve/Designated to Return list Saturday, Nov. 21.

    Huddle Up: As expected, Romo was activated and will start Sunday against the Dolphins for the first time since Week 2. Owners should expect Romo to be a little rusty but unless you have a clearly better option available, Romo should be in your starting lineups this week.

  • Anquan Boldin - WR - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 11/20/15 9:11pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Anquan Boldin (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 20, and is listed as questionable for the Week 11 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Boldin practiced all week and should play against the Seahawks. He's nothing more than a WR4 against the tough Seattle defense.

  • Carlos Hyde - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 11/20/15 9:11pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (foot) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 20, and has been ruled out for the Week 11 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Shaun Draughn will likely lead the 49ers in touches once again just as he did against the Falcons two weeks ago. Draughn is a low-end RB2 in a tough matchup versus the Seahawks.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 11/20/15 7:18pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 20, but is listed as probable for Week 11 against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins, fantasy's No. 3 WR this season, has a lot of things going against him this Sunday: His health concerns, the Jets and CB Darrelle Revis coming to town and, last but not least, the Texans going with backup QB T.J. Yates. That said, you're rolling with Hopkins as usual unless you're blessed with an abundance of top-10 WR options.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 11/20/15 5:20pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) missed practice all week and is questionable to play against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 11. He was also questionable with the same injury last week and rushed eight times for 42 yards against the Arizona Cardinals.

    Huddle Up: Lynch figures to go again this week, but he's no longer the no-brainer automatic fantasy start he's been in recent seasons due to the health questions and his decline in productivity

  • James Jones - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 11/20/15 5:20pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR James Jones (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 20, and is listed as probable for the Week 11 game against the Minnesota Vikings. The Packers did not practice Friday, so his practice designation is an estimate.

    Huddle Up: Jones will play as he has all season, but health isn't the real issue here as he's had no more than six targets or two receptions in each of his last five games, including his no-catch outing on two targets last Sunday. Start him only if you're desperate.

  • Michael Floyd - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 11/20/15 4:58pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WRs Michael Floyd and John Brown are both listed as questionable for Sunday's Week 11 game against the Cincinnati Bengals with hamstring injuries and are expected to be game-time decisions. Floyd has not practiced all week while Brown was limited Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday.

    Huddle Up: The major problem for fantasy owners here is the Cards have a second straight Sunday-night kickoff, leaving their lineups in limbo if they wait on either one of the two wideouts. Floyd obviously is more of a question mark than Brown after not practicing all week, and reserve Jaron Brown could be a sneaky play if one or both are absent.

  • Vincent Jackson - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 11/20/15 4:39pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 11. Jackson returned to limited practice Thursday and Friday this week after sitting out Wednesday.

    Huddle Up: Jackson appears to have his best chance of playing since Week 7, but it figures to come down to game-time call Sunday.
