Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Tyler Eifert - TE - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/28/16 2:39pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 26, and is listed as doubtful for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Eifert likely will miss one more game but should be able to play in Week 5 if he does not suffer any setbacks. C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Kroft will continue to share time at tight end, but neither player is a strong fantasy option.

  • Tajae Sharpe - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/28/16 2:35pm ET

    Tennessee Titans WR Tajae Sharpe (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Sharpe's 25 targets top all Titans, and the rookie has carved out value as a viable flex option or WR3 in PPR settings due to his volume in the offense. However, his value remains much lower in standard leagues until he shows he can haul in more yards or find the end zone consistently.

  • Delanie Walker - TE - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/28/16 2:18pm ET

    Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Walker missed Week 3 but could return for the matchup against the Houston Texans Sunday, Oct. 2. He's one of more involved pass catchers in the offense and checks out as a low-end starting option if active. Monitor his progress during practice this week.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/28/16 2:17pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle, knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Jackson should return to practice at some point this week and likely will be able to play in Week 4. He has recorded at least 96 yards in two of his three games this season and should be a solid No. 3 receiver for fantasy owners.

  • Josh Doctson - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/28/16 2:10pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Doctson was not able to play in Week 3 and will need to practice this week if he wants to play in Week 4. He has received limited playing time this season and would not be a strong fantasy option if he is active this week.

  • Frank Gore - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/28/16 1:52pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore (non injury) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Gore also received the Wednesday practice off last week, so expect this to become routine for the 33-year-old veteran. Gore has now scored touchdowns in consecutive games, and he had 21 rushing attempts in Week 3. However, he still sports a mediocre 3.9 yards per carry while defying age concerns. View Gore as a low-end RB2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 4.

  • Eric Ebron - TE - Detroit Lions
    Posted 9/28/16 1:49pm ET

    Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Ebron has not missed any time because of the injury and has posted decent numbers in each of the first three games of the season. Ebron should continue to have a solid role in the passing game and could be a No. 1 tight end for owners.

  • T.Y. Hilton - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/28/16 1:42pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Hilton is coming off a huge outing (eight receptions, 174 receiving yards and a touchdown) and has 34 targets through the first three weeks of the season. He's a set-and-forget receiver in all fantasy formats as long as he's healthy. With a cushy matchup on tap against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Hilton projects to have another solid outing in Week 4.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/28/16 1:37pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski went without a catch and received just one target in his 2016 debut last week, which burnt anyone eager to receive a return on their early-round investment. However, New England was in control of the game throughout, and there was little need to press Gronkowski into action. Tom Brady returns from suspension in Week 5, and Gronkowski projects to return to being an elite fantasy option then. This week, he is best viewed as a high-risk, high-reward commodity given the unknown surrounding his health and the quarterback situation.

  • Jacoby Brissett - QB - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/28/16 1:30pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Jacoby Brissett (thumb) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Brissett performed admirably for a third-string quarterback in Week 2 and 3. He did most of his fantasy damage with his legs and finished with 48 rushing yards and a score against the Houston Texans last week. With Tom Brady set to return from suspension in Week 5, Brissett isn't a viable long-term fantasy option, and especially since he isn't a lock to play this week. If Brissett does receive the start against Buffalo Sunday, Oct. 2, he checks out as a low-end QB2.

  • Matt Ryan - QB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/28/16 1:30pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan (thumb) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Ryan should be ready to play in Week 4 despite the thumb injury but will be facing a tough Carolina Panthers defense this week. He has thrown for 970 yards and seven touchdowns in the first three games and can be a starting option for owners in deeper leagues.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/28/16 1:25pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Jones was held to one catch and 16 yards in Week 3 but should be more involved in the passing game in Week 4. Jones has been limited by the injury but should continue to a starting candidate in all fantasy leagues.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo - QB - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/28/16 1:24pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Garoppolo was exceptional before suffering a shoulder injury in Week 2, and his status for Week 4 remains unknown. Tom Brady is eligible to return from suspension in Week 5, so Garoppolo's eyeing a one-week window to help fantasy players. However, given the uncertainty of his health, he's an ill-advised option to count on.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/28/16 1:22pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Coleman should be able to play in Week 4 and likely will continue to share work with Devonta Freeman at running back. He has been more involved in the passing game but also has four rushing touchdowns. He should be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option if he is able to play.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/28/16 1:14pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Sanu suffered the injury in the last game, so owners should see if he will be able to practice later in the week. He has not been as productive as he was in Week 1 but will still have a role in the passing game. Sanu could be a flex option if he is able to play but could also be benched if owners have better options.

  • Chris Ivory - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/28/16 1:05pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (ankle, knee) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: After missing the first two games of the season with an illness, Ivory sprained his ankle and knee last week in his Jaguars debut. He rushed for just 14 yards on 12 attempts in Week 3, and if healthy, Ivory projects to continue splitting work fairly evenly with T.J. Yeldon going forward. However, if Ivory finds his groove, he could grab a larger share of the workload given Yeldon has averaged just 2.47 yards per rushing attempt through the first three weeks of the season.

  • Julius Thomas - TE - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/28/16 12:49pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (elbow) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Thomas is a low-end No. 1 tight end when healthy. He has received 17 targets through the first three games and turned them into 11 receptions, 148 receiving yards and a touchdown. You'll want to monitor his status leading into his Week 4 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts. If Thomas misses the game or is limited, Mercedes Lewis projects to see an increased role in the offense and could be a potential low-priced flier in daily contests.

  • Russell Wilson - QB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/28/16 12:49pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (ankle, knee) will participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28, and is on track to play in Week 4, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to watch Wilson's practice participation this week to see if he suffers any setbacks. Wilson will be a high-risk, high-reward option this week since his mobility likely will be limited because of the injuries. Owners could consider benching Wilson if they have a quarterback with a better matchup.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/28/16 12:41pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) was listed as doubtful for the Week 4 game against the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Eifert scored 13 touchdowns in 13 games last season, but fantasy owners will have to wait at least another week before sliding him into their starting lineups. C.J. Uzomah has been targeted 17 times through the first three games, but he has turned the hefty target share into just seven receptions and 99 yards. He's a desperation fantasy option.

  • Alshon Jeffery - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/28/16 12:36pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Jeffery was able to play with the injury last week and should be ready to play again in Week 4. He has recorded at least 70 yards in each of the first three games of the season and should be a starting option in all leagues no matter which quarterback starts for the Bears.
