Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Will Fuller - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 9/23/18 2:51pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller caught five passes for 101 yards and one touchdown against the New York Giants in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Fuller missed Week 1 because of an injury but has started the season with back-to-back 100-yard games. He seems to have great chemistry with Deshaun Watson and should be a low-end No. 2 or a No. 3 receiver against most opponents.

  • Devin Funchess - WR - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/23/18 2:49pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess posted four receptions for 67 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Funchess found the end zone for the first time this season. He has racked up at least three receptions in each of his three games, and he has been targeted 21 times. Funchess is the receiver to own in Carolina for fantasy owners, especially with Greg Olsen (foot) on the shelf. You'll need fantasy alternatives to Funchess in Week 4, however, as the team is on a bye.

  • C.J. Anderson - RB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/23/18 2:47pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB C.J. Anderson rushed twice for nine yards in Week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals and he added a 24-yard touchdown catch on his only target.

    Huddle Up: Anderson wasn't needed, as Christian McCaffrey was galloping to a career-high 184 yards in the victory. The veteran Anderson did well when called upon, but he'll need more than three touches for fantasy relevance. No Panthers have relevance in Week 4, as they're off due to the bye.

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 9/23/18 2:45pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller caught five passes for 41 yards and one touchdown against the New York Giants in Week 3. He also rushed for 10 yards on 10 carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Miller struggled against the Giants run defense but still had a solid outing because of his receiving totals. He should be a decent No. 2 fantasy running back next week against the Indianapolis Colts.

  • Deshaun Watson - QB - Houston Texans
    Posted 9/23/18 2:41pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson went 24-for-40 for 385 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the New York Giants in Week 3. He also rushed for 36 yards on five carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Watson has thrown for at least 300 yards in each of his last two games and has four touchdowns during that span. He will be facing an improved Indianapolis Colts defense next week but can still be a No. 1 fantasy option.

  • Evan Engram - TE - New York Giants
    Posted 9/23/18 2:39pm ET

    New York Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) caught one pass for 19 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 3 before he left the game because of his knee injury.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to determine the severity of Engraam's injury. He is off to a slow start to the season but can still be a No. 1 tight end if he is healthy.

  • Sterling Shepard - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 9/23/18 2:33pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught six passes for 80 yards and one touchdown against the Houston Texans in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Shepard was coming off a disappointing Week 2 performance but caught six of his seven passes against the Texans. He is the clear No. 2 receiver for the Giants and can be considered a flex option against certain opponents.

  • Christian McCaffrey - RB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/23/18 2:31pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed 28 times for a career-high 184 yards in Week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals and he added two grabs for 10 yards. The rushing yardage was the fourth-best mark in franchise history.

    Huddle Up: McCaffrey's previous best in rushing yardage was 66 last season against the Atlanta Falcons. He'll have two weeks to bask in the glory of his day, as the Panthers are off in Week 4. He'll return rested and ready for the New York Giants in Week 5.

  • Odell Beckham - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 9/23/18 2:29pm ET

    New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. caught nine passes for 109 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Beckham has posted a 100-yard game in two of the first three weeks and has been targeted at least nine times in all three games. He should continue to be on of the top fantasy receivers in the NFL.

  • Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/23/18 2:27pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 15-of-24 passes for 150 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals and he ran for two scores.

    Huddle Up: Newton has totaled seven touchdowns over the past two games, including a season-best four scores in this one. He started off slow in the opener against Dallas, but he remains a solid QB1 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 5 after the team's bye.

  • John Ross - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/23/18 2:22pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross posted three grabs for 16 yards on seven targets in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Ross has managed just five receptions for 27 yards and a touchdown on 13 targets through three games. He has speed to burn, but for whatever reason he is just not factoring in. Tyler Boyd had a giant game in Week 3 once A.J. Green exited with a groin injury. Perhaps if Green is sidelined then Ross will see more action, but Green said he expects to play in Week 4.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/23/18 2:18pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert posted six receptions for 74 yards on eight targets in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Eifert has been able to stay healthy for three full games. While that's not necessarily newsworthy for most, it's important for the brittle tight end. He has been a fantasy beast in the past when he can stay healthy. Unfortunately, those times have been few and far between. He is a TE1, especially for his work in the red zone, when he can avoid the injury bug. The Bengals travel to meet the Falcons in Week 4.

  • Saquon Barkley - RB - New York Giants
    Posted 9/23/18 2:18pm ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rushed for 82 yards and one touchdown on 17 carries against the Houston Texans in Week 3. He also caught five passes for 35 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Barkley has been a consistent performer for owners over the first three games of the season and should continue to be a No. 1 running back in all leagues.

  • Eli Manning - QB - New York Giants
    Posted 9/23/18 2:17pm ET

    New York Giants QB Eli Manning went 25-for-29 for 297 yards and two touchdowns against the Houston Texans in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Manning has played well over the last two games and should have a favorable matchup next week against the New Orleans Saints. He could be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues in Week 4.

  • A.J. Green - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/23/18 2:15pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (groin) said Sunday, Sept. 23 that the groin injury he suffered in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers isn't serious and he expects to play in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Green is aiming to play in Week 4 against the Atlanta Falcons, and he could have a giant stat line if he is indeed ready. However, beat writer Paul Dehner Jr. noted that RB Joe Mixon said the same thing about his injury last week, and he was inactive in this one. If Green is unable to go, Tyler Boyd might step up again and absorb Green's targets.

  • Tyler Boyd - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/23/18 2:12pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd posted six receptions for 132 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Boyd stepped up and filled the void once A.J. Green went down with a groin injury, so he could be a popular pickup heading into Week 4 in Atlanta, especially if the veteran Green is unable to play. Normally Boyd is best treated as a low-end WR4 or flex option.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/23/18 2:09pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard rushed 12 times for 61 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers and he added five grabs for 25 yards on a game-high nine targets.

    Huddle Up: Bernard did a decent enough job handling the rushing duties with Joe Mixon (knee) on the shelf. He remains a decent low-end RB3 in standard play and a nice low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option in PPR leagues heading into Week 4 in Atlanta if Mixon remains sidelined.

  • Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TE - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/23/18 2:08pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught three passes for 18 yards against the Tennessee Titans in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Seferian-Jenkins has been held to 25 yards or less in each of the first three games and should only be considered a No. 2 fantasy tight end at this point.

  • Andy Dalton - QB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/23/18 2:04pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 29-of-46 passes for 352 yards with two touchdowns and four interceptions in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Dalton had a decent fantasy line, but the four interceptions were very worrisome. He had just one 300-yard game last season, and his passing yardage was his most since dropping 366 yards in a loss at Pittsburgh back on Sept. 18, 2016. Despite the solid yardage total he is still more of a QB2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 4 against the Atlanta Falcons.

  • Dede Westbrook - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/23/18 2:03pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook caught three passes for 31 yards against the Tennessee Titans in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Westbrook was coming off a productive Week 2 performance but was held in check this week. He has caught 12 of his 15 targets this season and could be a flex option in some deeper leagues next week.
