Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/23/18 12:12pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) is officially active for the team's Week 3 game.

    Huddle Up: Fitzgerald has posted 10 receptions and 104 yards during the first two games and is still the main option in the team's passing game. He can be considered a No. 3 fantasy receiver despite his hamstring injury.

  • A.J. Green - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/23/18 11:49am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (groin) is dealing with a groin injury suffered in the first half of the Week 3 game against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, Sept. 23. His return is probable.

    Huddle Up: Something obviously to keep an eye on with Green entering the week with four TD receptions and catching five passes for 58 yards through early in the third quarter.

  • Phillip Lindsay - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 9/23/18 11:20am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay was ejected in the second quarter of the Week 3 game against the Baltimore Ravens, on Sunday, Sept. 23, for throwing a punch in a pileup.

    Huddle Up: Huge blow for the fantasy owners of the Broncos' leading rusher and one of the bright lights of the young fantasy season. Lindsay had four rushes for 20 yards prior to the ejection.

  • Evan Engram - TE - New York Giants
    Posted 9/23/18 11:06am ET

    New York Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) suffered a knee injury Week 3 Sunday, Sept. 23, against the Houston Texans and has been ruled out for the rest of the game.

    Huddle Up: This doesn't look promising as Engram was ruled out quickly following the injury, leaving Rhett Ellison and Scott Simonson as the Giants' only tight ends.

  • Saquon Barkley - RB - New York Giants
    Posted 9/23/18 10:38am ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) suffered a bruised knee in the first quarter of the Week 3 game against the Houston Texans, but will return to the contest.

    Huddle Up: Barkley started fast with 30 rushing yards and a TD in the opening quarter, and his fantasy owners will breathe a sigh of relief when he returns.

  • Bruce Ellington - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 9/23/18 10:13am ET

    Houston Texans WR Bruce Ellington (hamstring) left with a hamstring injury in the first quarter of Week 3 game against the New York Giants on Sunday, Sept. 23, and is listed as questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Ellington had one 10-yard catch early, and we'll see if he can get back on the field.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 9/23/18 9:58am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is being inquired about by teams pitching trade offers, and the Steelers are listening, league sources tell ESPN's Adam Schefter on Sunday, Sept. 23.

    Huddle Up: With enough other drama to deal with -- not to mention a disappointing 0-1-1 start -- the Steelers are no doubt tiring of the Bell stalemate, and the allure of getting something for the pending free agent has to sound better by the week. Bell's fantasy owners, meanwhile, should be open to any deal after being without the elite RB for the first three weeks.

  • Aaron Jones - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/23/18 9:39am ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones is active for the Week 3 game against the Washington Redskins on Sunday, Sept. 23. He missed the first two games while on suspension.

    Huddle Up: The Packers might run more than usual with wet and rainy weather today in D.C., but it's tough to envision Jones suddenly being handed a heavy workload with Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery also in the mix. Aside from emergency roster situations, Jones might be best left on fantasy benches for Week 3 to see how the Pack's backfield workload plays out.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/23/18 9:29am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) is active and will play Sunday, Sept. 23, against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: This is a great spot for Jones, who is coming off a lackluster Week 2 (five catches for 64 yards on 9 targets). He has averaged 5.8 receptions and 89.2 yards with three TDs in 13 career games against the Saints.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/23/18 9:15am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RBs Giovani Bernard and Mark Walton are the team's only two active running backs Sunday, Sept. 23, for the Week 3 game against the Carolina Panthers. RB Joe Mixon (knee) is inactive and newly signed Thomas Rawls is a healthy scratch.

    Huddle Up: This is especially good news for Bernard owners as their man averaged 19 touches per game over the final five contests of last season when Mixon was out or not at full strength. Walton, a rookie fourth-round pick, will make his regular-season debut, but likely will just a see a handful of touches spelling Bernard.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/23/18 9:09am ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (knee) is officially active for the team's Week 3 game.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers probably will be dealing with the knee injury for a while but is still able to play. He should be a No. 1 quarterback in all leagues as long as he is active for games.

  • Corey Clement - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/23/18 9:04am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Corey Clement (quadriceps) is officially active for the team's Week 3 game.

    Huddle Up: Clement is in line for a lot of playing time this week with Jay Ajayi and Darren Sproles sidelined. He should be a flex option in most leagues and could be considered a low-end No. 2 running back in some deeper leagues.

  • Cameron Meredith - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 9/23/18 9:04am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith is active for the team's Week 3 game against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, Sept. 23. Meredith had been a healthy scratch in Weeks 1 and 2.

    Huddle Up: There had been high hopes this summer for Meredith, but he's quickly faded from fantasy radars with back-to-back inactive designations to start the season. He could be a sneaky play, though, today for those who have stuck with him after WRs Michael Thomas and Tedd Ginn and RB Alvin Kamara have accounted for a whopping 77.2 percent of Drew Brees' 79 targets so far.

  • Marquise Goodwin - WR - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 9/23/18 9:03am ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin (quadriceps) is officially active for the team's Week 3 game.

    Huddle Up: Goodwin is returning after a one-week absence, but it is not known if he will be limited at all during the game. He will have a favorable matchup this week and can be a No. 3 fantasy receiver.

  • T.J. Yeldon - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/23/18 8:58am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (ankle) is officially active for the team's Week 3 game.

    Huddle Up: Yeldon likely will receive most of the work at running back with Leonard Fournette out, but he will be a risky option for owners because he is coming off an ankle injury. He can still be a No. 2 running back or flex option in most leagues.

  • LeSean McCoy - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/23/18 8:57am ET

    Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (ribs) is inactive for Week 3's game against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: McCoy took part in pregame warmups before the coaching staff decided to deactivate him. Chris Ivory will receive the bulk of the carries versus Minnesota but should be viewed as a weak flex option in standard fantasy leagues.

  • Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/23/18 8:55am ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (elbow) is officially active for the team's Week 3 game.

    Huddle Up: Mariota is still having problems with the nerves in his elbow, so he will be splitting time with Blaine Gabbert. Owners should avoid Mariota until he is fully recovered from his injury.

  • Joe Mixon - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/23/18 8:22am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) may be available to play in Week 4, according to sources. He is feeling much better since the surgery and may play if his incision heals before the game.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor his practice participation next week to see if he will be able to play in Week 4. He will be a weekly starting option once he is able to return to the field.

  • Baker Mayfield - QB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/23/18 8:16am ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield will be named the team's starting quarterback Monday, Sept. 24.

    Huddle Up: Mayfield led the team to their first win in over a year this week and likely will keep the job moving forward. He will not be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback every week but will be a starting option against certain opponents.

  • Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/23/18 7:32am ET

    Confirming a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) has been declared out for Week 3's game against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: T.J. Yeldon and Corey Grant will split carries for the second consecutive week, with Yeldon making a viable flex option in all fantasy formats and Grant possessing some value as a flex player in deeper PPR leagues. Fournette had been able to participate in all three practice sessions during the week on a limited basis, so it appears that the Jaguars are holding him out as a precautionary measure. Expect him to return to action for Week 4's contest against the New York Jets.
