Fantasy Football Breaking News

Please be sure to view our Game Day Inactives, Injuries & Weather Report on Sundays as it will contain all player inactive reports and playing status news.

  • Michael Thomas - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 12/7/16 2:59pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (foot) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Thomas will be a key name to keep an eye on in the coming days. If he misses practice again over the next day or two then there will be good cause for worry. Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead turn into a WR1 and WR3, respectively, if Thomas is inactive, while Coby Fleener is a sleeper start either way.

  • Andrew Luck - QB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 12/7/16 2:52pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Luck will be fine to play against the Houston Texans and is coming off a game where he threw for 278 yards and four touchdowns. He can be considered a No. 1 quarterback in all leagues since the Texans are dealing with some injuries on defense.

  • Frank Gore - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 12/7/16 2:39pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Gore has received at least 15 carries in six of the last seven games and will continue to be a main part of the offense. He has rushed for only four touchdowns this season but can still be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option because owners know what to expect from Gore.

  • Jonathan Stewart - RB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 12/7/16 2:28pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (rest) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: It was simply a day of rest for Stewart. He'll be fine for Week 14 in a plus matchup against the San Diego Chargers. San Diego has given up 16 total touchdowns to running backs this year, tied for second most in the NFL behind the San Francisco 49ers.

  • Eric Ebron - TE - Detroit Lions
    Posted 12/7/16 2:11pm ET

    Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (knee) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Ebron was targeted more frequently than usual last week, but that was partly because Marvin Jones was sidelined. If Jones is active then Ebron's value takes a decrease, but he remains a low-end TE1 option.

  • Theo Riddick - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 12/7/16 2:02pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: It seems unlikely that Riddick would sit this week after being able to play last week while not at 100%. If the shifty running back is unexpectedly sidelined, however, then Dwayne Washington would make for a sleeper option in deeper standard leagues.

  • Brandon LaFell - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 12/7/16 2:00pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: LaFell played well in Week 13 and finished with 95 yards and one touchdown on five catches. He will continue to be one of the top receivers for the Bengals while A.J. Green is out and can be a flex option this week against the Cleveland Browns.

  • Marvin Jones - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 12/7/16 1:55pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (quadriceps) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Jones was limited in practice last week too and ended up not playing, so don't start getting all positive about his status just yet. If Jones is sidelined again or limited at all then Golden Tate should be viewed as a WR1 versus the mediocre Chicago Bears pass defense.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 12/7/16 1:44pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: The team probably was taking things easy with Roethisberger and should be ready to play in Week 14. He has thrown eight touchdowns and one interception over the last four games but does not play as well when he is on the road. He can still be considered a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.

  • DeVante Parker - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 12/7/16 1:24pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (back) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Parker was able to play in Week 13 despite the injury and was limited to 34 yards but was able to catch a touchdown. It appears like Parker should have a decent chance to play and could be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in most leagues.

  • Allen Hurns - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 12/7/16 1:13pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Hurns missed last week's game and could miss another if he continues to miss practice. Marqise Lee would be the primary beneficiary if Hurns is out again, but he's only ideal as a flex start, if that, in a tough matchup against the Minnesota Vikings.

  • Jordan Matthews - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 12/7/16 12:57pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Matthews appears to be on track to play in Week 14, but owners will need to check on his status later in the week. He has been targeted at least 10 times in four of his last five games and should continue to be a solid part of the passing game. He can be a No. 3 receiver in all fantasy league.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 12/7/16 11:54am ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (hamstring) will be limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers has been dealing with a hamstring injury over the last few weeks but has been able to play. He has thrown seven touchdowns and zero interceptions over the last three games and should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

  • Shane Vereen - RB - New York Giants
    Posted 12/7/16 11:28am ET

    New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo said the team may have a package of plays for RB Shane Vereen (triceps) if he is ready to play in Week 14. Vereen's status will be determined Saturday, Dec. 10.

    Huddle Up: Vereen has not been able to play since September because of his injury but has been able to practice over the last few weeks. He probably would see limited touches if he is active for Week 14 and probably should be avoided in most leagues.

  • Jarvis Landry - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 12/7/16 11:16am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry (non-injury) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Landry probably will be back at practice later in the week and should be in uniform in Week 14. He is coming off a solid performance where he caught 11 passes for 87 yards in Week 13 and should have a solid role against the Arizona Cardinals. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver in most leagues.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 12/7/16 11:05am ET

    Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) said he will only return this season if the Vikings are still in playoff contention.

    Huddle Up: The Vikings have lost six of their last seven games, so there is a chance that Peterson sits out the rest of the season. He may see limited snaps if he does return and could be at least a flex option in some leagues.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 12/7/16 9:56am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) said Wednesday, Dec. 7, that he has begun running and cutting, and he expects to get back sometime this season.

    Huddle Up: It might be too late for him to be a factor in fantasy, but the potential is still there if you can afford the roster spot.

  • Shane Vereen - RB - New York Giants
    Posted 12/7/16 9:40am ET

    New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) is practicing again Wednesday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Vereen could come off the PUP this week, but it's hard to trust him his first week back in fantasy. The Giants also take on the Dallas Cowboys this week.

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/7/16 9:18am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is out of practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: It's likely just a maintenance day, and he should be fine to face the Pittsburgh Steelers. Watkins just turned in three receptions for 38 yards on nine targets last week. He'll be a WR3 option this week.

  • Robert Woods - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/7/16 8:41am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Robert Woods (knee) will see limited work in practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: It's a step in the right direction for him to play in Week 14. He would be a WR3 or flex option against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
