Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Colt McCoy - QB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 12/12/14 2:32pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy (neck) practiced in full and took all the first-team repetitions Friday, Dec. 12, but he's listed as questionable for Week 15 against the New York Giants. McCoy must first be cleared by a specialist before playing in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: It's looking very much like McCoy will start Sunday in N.Y., but definitely double-check to make sure he gets final medical clearance.

  • Eddie Lacy - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 12/12/14 2:32pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (hip) is probable for Week 15 against the Buffalo Bills, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. Lacy is improving and is hopeful of playing.

    Huddle Up: Great late-week news for Lacy owners, who hopefully, have James Starks as a fall-back plan just in case.

  • Drew Stanton - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 12/12/14 2:32pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) has been diagnosed with a sprained knee, and he's listed as week-to-week, according to a source. Stanton's season isn't believed to be finished.

    Huddle Up: Great news for the Cards, but it very much remains to be seen if he'll be able to play and be of any fantasy use in the team's final two regular-season games.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 12/12/14 2:32pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) is questionable for the team's Week 15 game. Jones did not practice Friday, Dec. 12.

    Huddle Up: Jones remains a game-time decision, and we'd definitely be feeling better about his prospects if he had been able to do a least a little something Friday. Jones owners should definitely have their backup plans in order, and Harry Douglas certainly isn't a bad option.

  • Kerwynn Williams - RB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 12/12/14 11:03am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Kerwynn Williams (32) and RB Stepfan Taylor (29) were at nearly an even split in touches Thursday, Dec. 11.

    Huddle Up: Neither was particularly effective against the stout Rams' defense. Going forward, expect the split--or worse, "hot hand"--approach, with Williams likely having a bit more fantasy value.

  • Drew Stanton - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 12/12/14 11:03am ET

    Updating previous reports, Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) may have suffered an injury to his anterior cruciate ligament. He had a previous tear in the same knee.

    Huddle Up: The Cardinals will move forward with Ryan Lindley and Logan Thomas at quarterback, unless they hit the scrap heap for another veteran. Makes a deep playoff run trickier, that's for sure; it also could torpedo what little fantasy value Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd still had.

  • Drew Stanton - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 12/12/14 12:21am ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton was ruled out for the remainder of the team's game Thursday, Dec. 11 after suffering a right-knee injury in the third quarter.

    Huddle Up: It's been tough enough for the Cards' pass-catchers going from Carson Palmer to Stanton, and now it may be Ryan Lindley, who was 4-of-10 for 30 yards in relief in his first action since 2012, finishing out the season if Stanton's knee injury turns out serious.

  • Kyle Orton - QB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/12/14 12:15am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel will not start again this season if head coach Doug Marrone has the final say. When asked if his decision to stick with QB Kyle Orton as the starter would change if the team fell out of playoff contention, Marrone said,"No. Not for me, unless it changes for somebody else."

    Huddle Up: Orton has been better in fantasy than reality, particularly last week when threw for 355 yards and a TD and ran for another score -- mainly in garbage time -- in a 24-17 loss in Denver. He has the chance to put up some more junk-time points this week if the Bills fall behind early against the visiting Packers.

  • Colin Kaepernick - QB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 12/12/14 12:15am ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has struggled so far in his career against the Seattle Seahawks, who the team faces this week. Kaepernick has thrown two touchdowns and seven interceptions in four games played against the Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Kaepernick has struggled enough on his own of late -- 6 TDs and 6 interceptions while averaging 208 passing yards per game over the last 7 outings -- without having to face his old nemesis, on the road no less. Steer clear of all Niners this week.

  • Reggie Bush - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 12/11/14 11:36pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) and the coaching staff believe that he can return to form and be one of the most dangerous weapons out of the backfield. Bush has missed five games because of injuries this year, and he had just 12 touches for 34 total yards in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. RB Theo Riddick didn't play at all, but offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi said that was a one-game anomaly.

    Huddle Up: It's been a lost year for Bush, and it's going be tough for the RB to come close to re-gaining his form given the limited time left in the season. Joique Bell remains the only starting choice among the Detroit backs.

  • Jamaal Charles - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 12/11/14 11:36pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee, ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 11.

    Huddle Up: Charles was back on the field Thursday after a well-deserved maintenance day/day of rest and recuperation Wednesday. His fantasy owners can proceed with confidence this week.

  • Ryan Mathews - RB - San Diego Chargers
    Posted 12/11/14 11:23pm ET

    San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 11.

    Huddle Up: Mathews was out a second straight day, but we'll a know a lot more about his Sunday status after seeing how things go Friday. If it turns out he can't go Sunday, Donald Brown and Darren Oliver would shoulder the RB duties.

  • Drew Stanton - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 12/11/14 11:16pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) is questionable to return to the team's game Thursday, Dec. 11, after suffering a right knee injury in the third quarter. QB Ryan Lindley replaced Stanton.

    Huddle Up: Another QB has gone down for the star-crossed Cards as Stanton (12-of-20, 109 yards) was taken into the lockerroom for evaluation after being unable to put much weight on his right leg. Not surprisingly, it was the recently re-signed but more experienced Lindley who was thrust into action instead of rookie Logan Thomas. More info on Stanton's injury should be forthcoming.

  • Torrey Smith - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 12/11/14 11:04pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 11.

    Huddle Up: Smith has missed two straight practices after sitting out Week 14, and his Sunday status is very much in doubt. Kamar Aiken, who broke out with a 6-65-1 performance last week, could be in line for more work.

  • Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 12/11/14 11:04pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) currently isn't concerned about whether he'll be able to return to action this season. 'As far as when I'm coming back, who cares,' Newton said. 'That's not something I'm worried about. I'm just thankful to have breath in my lungs so I can breathe again.' Head coach Ron Rivera said the best-case-scenario would be to have Newton back at practice next week, but there are no guarantees.

    Huddle Up: Newton has the right perspective escaping the ugly-looking accident with limited injury, and any action in the last two games might have to be considered a bonus. In the meantime, Carolina pass-catchers Greg Olsen and Kelvin Benjamin should be fine as Derek Anderson is an experienced backup.

  • Andre Johnson - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/11/14 10:54pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (concussion) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 11.

    Huddle Up: Johnson's Sunday status will be determined by how he fares in the concussion protocol tests Friday. Stay tuned ...

  • Demaryius Thomas - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 12/11/14 10:54pm ET

    Denver Broncos WRs Demaryius Thomas (ankle) and Wes Welker (ankle) were limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 11, after sitting out Wednesday, Dec. 10.

    Huddle Up: A number of Broncos were held out of Wednesday's light practice, and those Thomas owners who weren't KO'd by Thomas' 2-11 performance last week are hoping for a big bounce-back week.

  • DeAngelo Williams - RB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 12/11/14 4:18pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (hand) probably will not be able to play in Week 15, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

    Huddle Up: Sounds as if Williams is headed for a second straight DNP Sunday, leaving the RB chores to Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert once again.

  • Greg Olsen - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 12/11/14 4:18pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 11.

    Huddle Up: The Panthers' leading pass-catcher has been limited for two straight practices, but we haven't heard anything to suggest he's in any real danger of sitting out Sunday. Stay tuned, though, to make certain.

  • Eddie Lacy - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 12/11/14 4:13pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (hip) said there are some hurdles he has to clear before being ready to play in Week 15 and does not want to hurt the team if he is not able to play effectively. Lacy, who has been limited in practice this week, said the main issue is the pain he is feeling in his hip. He is not sure if he can further damage his hip if he plays.

    Huddle Up: Something to keep a close eye on as Packers practice observers Thursday said Lacy was not able to do much of anything -- which is contrary the optimism of a few days ago. We should definitely have a better idea after Friday's drills.
