Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Greg Olsen - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/25/16 1:51pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen caught six passes for 64 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Olsen was targeted 10 times during the game and has caught at least five passes in each of his first three games. He should continue to be a strong fantasy option for owners because he will be a focal point in the Panthers' passing game.

  • Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/25/16 1:50pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton went 21-for-35 for 262 yards and three interceptions against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 3. He also rushed for 26 yards and one touchdown on seven carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Newton struggled against one of the better defenses in the NFL and should post better next week against the Atlanta Falcons. Newton is a must-start quarterback in all fantasy leagues.

  • Eddie Lacy - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/25/16 1:48pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy ran 17 times for 103 yards in a 34-27 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday, Sept. 25.

    Huddle Up: Although Lacy didn't score, he did help the Packers' ground game show off a bit and forced the Lions to respect both the run and the pass. Lacy's game fluctuates from week to week, however, so beware if you put him in your lineup.

  • Stefon Diggs - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/25/16 1:43pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs caught four passes for 40 yards against the Carolina Panthers in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Diggs recorded at least 100 yards in each of the first two games of the season but was held in check against the Panthers. He should be more involved in the passing game next week and should be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for owners.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/25/16 1:39pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers threw for four touchdowns and finished with 204 yards passing Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 34-27 win over the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers completed two-thirds of his passes and allowed no interceptions in the win. After last week's shaky performance against the Minnesota Vikings, Rodgers snapped back to the quarterback all fantasy owners knew and loved.

  • Kyle Rudolph - TE - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/25/16 1:38pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph caught seven passes for 70 yards and one touchdown against the Carolina Panthers in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Rudolph has scored a touchdown in each of his last two games and has been targeted at least eight times in all three games this season. He should continue to be a solid option in Minnesota's passing game and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

  • Marvin Jones - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 9/25/16 1:33pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones caught six passes for 205 yards and scored two touchdowns Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 34-27 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: The Lions are looking for some identity at wide receiver in the post-Calvin Johnson era, and it helps that receivers like Golden Tate, Anquan Boldin and Jones are coming forward. Jones should be in your fantasy lineup, but you never know who will be the leader from week to week.

  • Jerick McKinnon - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/25/16 1:29pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed for 45 yards on 16 carries against the Carolina Panthers in Week 3. He also caught one pass for two yards in the game.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon will continue to share work with Matt Asiata even though both struggled in Week 3. McKinnon probably will not be more than a flex option most weeks.

  • Matthew Stafford - QB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 9/25/16 1:24pm ET

    Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford threw for 385 yards and scored three touchdowns in his team's 34-27 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Sept. 25.

    Huddle Up: Stafford led a furious second-half comeback that fell just short. He completed two-thirds of his passes and was effective more often than not. He remains a strong QB1 option in all fantasy leagues.

  • Matt Asiata - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/25/16 1:17pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata rushed for 15 yards on six carries against the Carolina Panthers in Week 3. He also caught one pass for four yards.

    Huddle Up: Asiata was facing a tough Panthers defense and should play better moving forward. He will receive playing time as long as Adrian Peterson is sidelined but will not be more than a flex option in most leagues.

  • Antonio Gates - TE - San Diego Chargers
    Posted 9/25/16 1:15pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) has been declared inactive for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Hunter Henry will start at tight end and should have a solid role in the passing game in Week 3. He could be a decent option in daily fantasy leagues and can be a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • T.Y. Hilton - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/25/16 12:58pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) and WR T.Y. Hilton (knee) are officially active for the team's Week 3 game.

    Huddle Up: Luck and Hilton should both be solid starting options for fantasy owners and are not expected to be limited during the game.

  • Brandon Marshall - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 9/25/16 12:53pm ET

    New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall (foot, knee) is officially active for the team's Week 3 game.

    Huddle Up: Marshall is expected to be on a snap count this week, which will hurt his fantasy value. Marshall could still be a starting option for owners, but they should lower their expectations.

  • Thomas Rawls - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/25/16 12:51pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (shin) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 3 game.

    Huddle Up: Christine Michael will receive most of the work at running back and should be an attractive flex option for owners.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/25/16 11:59am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson caught six passes for 101 yards and two touchdowns in the first half of the team's Week 3 game against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Nelson has started the season off strong and appears to be completely recovered from his torn anterior cruciate ligament. He should be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Marvin Jones - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 9/25/16 11:53am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones caught two passes for 111 yards and one touchdown in the first half of the team's Week 3 game against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Jones caught a 73-yard touchdown pass late in the first half and should continue to be a top target in the passing game. He should be a solid No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/25/16 11:52am ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers went 12-for-18 for 174 yards and four touchdowns in the first half of the team's Week 3 game against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers had some problems in the first two games of the season but is back to his normal self in Week 3. He is a must-start player in all fantasy leagues.

  • Jordan Cameron - TE - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/25/16 10:48am ET

    Miami Dolphins TE Jordan Cameron (head) left the team's Week 3 game early and is being evaluated for a concussion. He is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Cameron likely will miss time if he is diagnosed with a concussion, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. Cameron should continue to be a No. 2 tight end in most fantasy leagues.

  • Eric Ebron - TE - Detroit Lions
    Posted 9/25/16 9:49am ET

    Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (back) is officially active for the team's Week 3 game.

    Huddle Up: Ebron has caught nine of his 12 targets this season and should continue to have a solid role in the passing game. Ebron could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in most fantasy leagues.

  • Chris Ivory - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/25/16 9:45am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (illness) is officially active for the team's Week 3 game.

    Huddle Up: Ivory may receive a limited workload this week since he missed Week 2, which would hurt is value. Owners may want to see him play in a game or two before considering him for their lineups.
