Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Keelan Cole - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/23/18 2:00pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Keelan Cole caught five passes for 40 yards against the Tennessee Titans in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Cole has been targeted 17 times over the last two weeks and appears to be the main target in the passing game. He can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option next week against the New York Jets.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo - QB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 9/23/18 1:59pm ET

    Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) might have suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs, head coach Kyle Shanahan said Sunday, Sept. 23. 'It doesn't look good,' one teammate said.

    Huddle Up: Garoppolo will go for an MRI on Monday, so hopefully the news ends up better than the initial fears. His left knee buckled while running along the sidelines on a non-contact situation, trying to juke before he was touched by a defender. C.J. Beathard will take over if Garoppolo is indeed forced to the shelf.

  • Stefon Diggs - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/23/18 1:56pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs posted just four receptions for 17 yards on 10 targets in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: Kirk Cousins tried to feed the ball into Diggs, but the Bills defense did a good job of taking the speedster out of the game. Chalk it up as one bad game for the receiver. He'll try and rebound in Week 4 on Thursday night against the Los Angeles Rams.

  • T.J. Yeldon - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/23/18 1:55pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon rushed for 44 yards on seven carries against the Tennessee Titans in Week 3. He also caught six passes for 46 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Yeldon will see his playing time decrease if Leonard Fournette is ready to play in Week 4 but could still be involved in the offense. He can be a flex option if Fournette plays and a No. 2 fantasy running back if Fournette misses another game.

  • Kyle Rudolph - TE - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/23/18 1:52pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph posted five catches for 48 yards and a touchdown on six targets in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: Rudolph's touchdown came in garbage time, but fantasy owners will take it. After a slow start in Week 1, Rudolph has 12 grabs for 120 yards and a score on 14 targets over the past two games. He remains a solid low-end TE1 in most fantasy leagues heading into Thursday's Week 4 road game with the Rams.

  • Blake Bortles - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/23/18 1:47pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles went 21-for-34 for 155 yards against the Tennessee Titans in Week 3. He also rushed for 27 yards on five carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Bortles has been held under 200 yards in two of the three games this season but should have a more favorable matchup next week against the New York Jets. He should still only be considered a No. 2 quarterback in most leagues.

  • Adam Thielen - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/23/18 1:47pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen made a career-high 14 receptions for 105 yards on 19 targets in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: Thielen continues to produce at a high level for fantasy owners, posting his third straight 100-yard game. PPR owners love him, too, as he already has 32 receptions with 338 yards and a TD. He'll try and extend his 100-yard streak on Thursday night against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 4.

  • Rishard Matthews - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/23/18 1:44pm ET

    Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews caught one pass for three yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Matthews is off to a very slow start with only three catches for 11 yards in the first three games. Owners in all leagues should avoid Matthews until he is more productive.

  • Latavius Murray - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/23/18 1:41pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed just twice for one yard in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills and he added five receptions for 30 yards on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: Murray was shouldering the load, kinda, with Dalvin Cook on the shelf. However, the Vikings abandoned the run early with the Bills building a 27-0 lead by halftime. That wasn't what fantasy owners who scooped up Murray this week were expecting. With a short week, Murray won't have a lot of time to prepare for the defensive-minded Rams in Week 4. He is only worth a look as a low-end RB3 in most fantasy formats if Cook remains sidelined due to his hamstring injury.

  • Kirk Cousins - QB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/23/18 1:38pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 40-of-55 passes for 296 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills, but he also lost two fumbles and was sacked four times.

    Huddle Up: The overall stat line doesn't look all that bad, but the Vikings were inexplicably behind 27-0 by halftime and the Vikings abandoned the run for plenty of passing which made the day look better for Cousins. It's a short turnaround for Cousins and his teammates, as they travel to L.A. to meet the Rams on Thursday in Week 4.

  • Corey Davis - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/23/18 1:38pm ET

    Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis caught two passes for 34 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Davis did not find much success against a tough Jaguars secondary but has been targeted 24 times in the first three games of the season. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver in most leagues next week against the Philadelphia Eagles.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo - QB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 9/23/18 1:36pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) was carted off the field during the Week 3 game after he suffered knee injury.

    Huddle Up: It appeared that Garoppolo suffered a non-contact injury, so he may be dealing with a serious injury. Owners should know more about his status in the next day or two. C.J. Beathard would take over the starting job if Garoppolo misses any time but is not a great fantasy option.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/23/18 1:26pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin posted three grabs for 29 yards on five targets in Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin made headlines during the preseason with critical words about Cam Newton and his ability to make Benjamin better, but really no quarterback has been able to unlock the receiver's potential. He has six grabs for 58 yards on 15 targets so far. No fantasy value here until he starts producing more consistently. The Bills meet the Packers on the road in Week 4.

  • Andre Holmes - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/23/18 1:23pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Andre Holmes posted three catches for 29 yards on four targets in Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: These numbers were season highs for Holmes, so he still has a while to go before he re-emerges as a relevant fantasy option. The Bills travel to meet the Packers in Week 4.

  • Dion Lewis - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/23/18 1:22pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Dion Lewis rushed for 26 yards on nine carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3. He also caught three passes for 14 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Lewis has received at least 12 touches in each of the first three games and should continue to split playing time with Derrick Henry. He will be facing a solid Philadelphia Eagles defense next week but could still be a flex option in most leagues.

  • Chris Ivory - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/23/18 1:18pm ET

    Buffalo Bills RB Chris Ivory rushed 20 times for 56 yards while adding a team-high 70 receiving yards on three receptions in Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Ivory did a good job on his 23 total touches, subbing for the injury LeSean McCoy in style. If Shady remains sidelined in Week 4 on the road against the Green Bay Packers then Ivory will be a solid RB3 or flex option in most fantasy leagues.

  • Derrick Henry - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/23/18 1:16pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry rushed for 57 yards on 18 carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Henry did not have much success against the tough Jaguars defense but received at least 10 carries in the third straight game. He appears to be the main option in the running game but may only be a flex option in standard leagues next week against the Philadelphia Eagles.

  • Josh Allen - QB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/23/18 1:15pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen completed 15-of-22 passes for 196 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 3 win against the Minnesota Vikings while also running for 39 yards and two scores.

    Huddle Up: Hopefully you didn't have Minnesota in a survivor pool, and if you did Allen is the biggest reason you're done. He was outstanding. Not only did he do it with accuracy on short to intermediate routes, but he surprised with his feet and made like Cam Newton in his first NFL start on the road. The Bills will try for a second straight road upset in Week 4 at Lambeau Field against the Packers.

  • Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/23/18 12:55pm ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota went 12-for-18 for 100 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3. He also rushed for 51 yards on seven carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Mariota did not start the game because of his elbow injury but likely will be the starting quarterback next week because of Blaine Gabbert's injury. Owners probably should avoid Mariota until he is completely recovered from his injury.

  • Matt Breida - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 9/23/18 12:33pm ET

    Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (knee) returned to the Week 3 game after he missed some time because of a knee injury.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Breida will miss any additional time because of the injury. He was the leading rusher in the NFL entering Week 3 and will continue to be a No. 2 fantasy running back if he is healthy.
