Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/23/18 7:09am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) is not expected to play in Week 3's game against the Tennessee Titans, according to multiple league sources.

    Huddle Up: Fournette had been listed as questionable on the injury report after participating in practice on a limited basis throughout the week. T.J. Yeldon and Corey Grant are expected to split carries in the backfield for the second consecutive game, with Yeldon worthy of consideration as a flex option in most fantasy leagues and Grant having value in deeper PPR formats.

  • Tyrod Taylor - QB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/23/18 6:44am ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) is expected to clear concussion protocol this week, according to multiple sources.

    Huddle Up: Despite this news, we've probably seen the last of Taylor as Cleveland's starting quarterback, barring an injury to Baker Mayfield. Begin scouring the waiver wire immediately if you're still carrying Taylor on your fantasy football roster as a backup.

  • Josh Gordon - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/23/18 6:22am ET

    New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) is not guaranteed to play in Week 3's game against the Detroit Lions, according to multiple sources. He will test out his hamstring during pregame warmups and the team is reportedly preparing for scenarios both with and without him on the field.

    Huddle Up: Gordon was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. Even if he is declared active for the game, he should not be viewed as a great fantasy option this week because he has not had an opportunity to learn most of the team's playbook.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/23/18 6:09am ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (knee) is expected to play in Week 3's game against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers was listed as questionable on the injury report despite not practicing until Saturday, Sept. 22. He should still be viewed as a QB1 in all fantasy formats even though he won't be playing at full strength.

  • Paul Richardson - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/23/18 6:08am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee) is expected to play in Week 3's game against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Richardson was listed as questionable on the injury report and participated in two practice sessions during the week on a limited basis. He should be viewed as a WR4 or flex option at best when he is completely healthy, so owners may want to look for safer alternatives.

  • Marvin Jones - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 9/23/18 5:54am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (ankle) is expected to play in Week 3's game against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Jones was a late addition to the injury report after putting in a limited practice session Friday, Sept. 21. He should be viewed as nothing more than a flex option in most fantasy formats due to the presence of WRs Golden Tate and Kenny Golladay, who are both likely to receive more targets than Jones.

  • Travis Benjamin - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/23/18 5:43am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (foot) is considered a long shot to play in Week 3's game against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin was listed as questionable on the injury report but only participated in one practice session during the week on a limited basis. He should be avoided in all fantasy formats.

  • Antonio Gates - TE - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/23/18 5:41am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates (illness) is expected to play in Week 3's game against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Gates was listed as questionable on the injury report but was only able to participate in one limited practice session during the week. Owners should be able to find better fantasy options.

  • Marquise Goodwin - WR - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 9/23/18 5:27am ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin (quadriceps) is considered a game-time decision for Week 3's contest against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Goodwin was a limited participant in all three of the team's practice sessions during the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. If he is active, he has a favorable matchup and would warrant consideration as a WR3 or flex option in most fantasy leagues.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/22/18 11:17pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) will play in Week 3 versus the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Fitzgerald makes for a risky play given the nature of his injury and the Cardinals' anemic offensive attack thus far, but he's about the only somewhat reliable weapon Arizona has in the passing game. It's not a given he'll be able to benefit from negative game script, but he should be able to post WR2 type production if he can make it through the game.

  • Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/22/18 11:03pm ET

    Contradicting an earlier report from ESPN's Adam Schefter, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) is facing an 'uphill battle to play' in Week 3 against the Tennessee Titans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport via a source.

    Huddle Up: This would be a bit of a surprise considering it has been assumed Fournette would play all week despite practicing in limited fashion. If Fournette is unable to play, it seems like T.J. Yeldon and Corey Grant would split backfield touches in much the same fashion they did last week.

  • Alshon Jeffery - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/22/18 9:46pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) is not expected to play in Week 3 vs. the Indianapolis Colts, according to a source. Jeffery could return in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: With few weapons, Carson Wentz is no better than a starter in two-QB leagues or superflex play. Jeffery should be able to immediately contribute upon his return, given the nature of his upper-body injury.

  • LeSean McCoy - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/22/18 9:42pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (ribs) is not expected to play in Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings, according to a source. McCoy will see how he feels in the pregame before the coaching staff makes a final decision.

    Huddle Up: Chris Ivory should replace McCoy if Shady sits, and it is highly probable the former will see an increased workload even if McCoy is able to play. Ivory is no better than a weak flex play in standard scoring.

  • Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/22/18 9:38pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 3 against the Tennessee Titans, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Fournette is a must-start in any conventional league, but gamers should be prepared to deal with the risk of him suffering a setback in the game. Hamstrings can be tricky, and Fournette is no stranger to soft-tissue injuries.

  • Blaine Gabbert - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/22/18 9:33pm ET

    Updating an ongoing story, Tennessee Titans QB Blaine Gabbert is the planned Week 3 starter, against the Jacksonville Jaguars, in place of QB Marcus Mariota (elbow), according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Gabbert has no fantasy value, especially with a daunting matchup. Gamers should keep Mariota in reserve while awaiting his return.

  • Dalvin Cook - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 9/22/18 3:52pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) said he has no doubts that he will be on the field in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Cook will be back, but he'll be returning to face one of the most formidable defenses in the league in the Los Angeles Rams. With Latavius Murray spotting him, coming off an injury and considering the matchup, Cook will be more of an RB2 option.

  • Chris Godwin - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 9/22/18 12:29pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin (toe) practiced in full Saturday, Sept. 22 and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 3 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Godwin enters the game with a touchdown in each of his first two games, racking up eight receptions for 97 yards on 10 targets. He is a solid WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 9/22/18 12:25pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (knee) practiced in full Saturday, Sept. 22 and he has been removed from the injury report for Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: It's time for more 'Fitz-magic' on Monday night, as he started in the third straight game in place of the suspended Jameis Winston. Fitzpatrick needs the NFL in passing yardage through two games, and he will face a so-so Steelers pass D which is allowing 236.0 yards per game with seven touchdowns and nine pass plays of 20 or more yards. Ben Roethlisberger is No. 2 in the league in passing yardage, so Monday could be quite a gunslinger show.

  • LeSean McCoy - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/22/18 10:22am ET

    Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (rib) is traveling with the team for their Week 3 game and is still considered questionable to play.

    Huddle Up: McCoy is expected to be a game-time decision, so owners will need to check the inactive list. He may see limited touches if he plays and is facing a tough Minnesota Vikings defense. Owners may only see him as a flex option because of his uncertain status.

  • Robby Anderson - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 9/22/18 9:11am ET

    New York Jets WR Robby Anderson has only six receptions and 90 yards in the first three games of the 2018 season. He has also lost two fumbles during that span.

    Huddle Up: Anderson has been targeted only 10 times in the first three games, so he will need to improve his chemistry with Sam Darnold. Owners probably were expecting more from Anderson after his productive 2017 season but is now only a flex option against favorable matchups.
