Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Cecil Shorts - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/11/14 2:22pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) is not participating in practice Thursday, Sept. 11.

    Huddle Up: This is a setback for Shorts, who was at least able to get in some work Wednesday.

  • Christine Michael - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/11/14 2:22pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael (hamstring) ran Tuesday, Sept. 9, and will try to run again Thursday, Sept. 11, in order to test his injured hamstring. Head coach Pete Carroll said Michael has an outside chance to play Week 2 but should be ready to play Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Just a depth chart update from the Pacific Northwest. In the meantime, Robert Turbin is the No. 2 back behind Marshawn Lynch if you're looking to keep yourself insured.

  • Montee Ball - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 9/11/14 2:22pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball rushed for 69 yards in the team's Week 1 game, but 55 of those yards came after contact.

    Huddle Up: Ball definitely demonstrated a lot of fight and determination, but he could also use some better blocking up front as he still only averaged 2.9 yards per carry overall on the night.

  • Earl Thomas - S - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/11/14 2:22pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks FS Earl Thomas will no longer return punts for the team, and he'll be replaced by WR Bryan Walters. Head coach Pete Carroll said Thomas could remain in the mix if the team needs him, but Walters and a mix of others will be the primary returners.

    Huddle Up: Thank-you cards are forthcoming from Thomas' IDP owners as the All-Pro safety was one hard hit or freak mishap away from sustaining a totally unnecessary injury.

  • Derrick Johnson - LB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/11/14 10:34am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs LB Derrick Johnson (Achilles') had surgery to repair a torn Achilles' Thursday, Sept. 11.

    Huddle Up: Johnson will miss the rest of the 2014 season as he works his way back from the injury.

  • Mikel Leshoure - RB - Free Agent
    Posted 9/11/14 10:34am ET

    Free-agent RB Mikel Leshoure (Lions) and LB Chidera Uzo-Diribe tried out for the Indianapolis Colts this week.

    Huddle Up: Clearly Indy is not satisfied with its backfield depth; heck, they may not even be happy with Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw. No need to move on Leshoure yet, but if he signs he could certainly force his way into playing time and quite possibly a fantasy-relevant role as well.

  • Andre Ellington - RB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/11/14 10:34am ET

    Updating previous reports, Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) was a lot less sore than anticipated after playing in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: The phrase "can't do any more damage by playing on it" has been trotted out frequently, which means it's just a matter of how much pain Ellington can tolerate. He saw 18 touches in Week 1, which may be at or near his upper limit for playing on the injury--at least until he gets a little extra rest during the Cardinals' bye week.

  • Maurice Jones-Drew - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/11/14 10:34am ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden will get the start in Week 2 against the Houston Texans if RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) is unable to play. FB Marcel Reece and RB Latavius Murray might see increased reps as well.

    Huddle Up: McFadden would be the best fantasy play of the bunch, which isn't necessarily saying much.

  • Tom Brady - QB - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/11/14 10:34am ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (calf) was not listed on the team's first injury report for Week 2 Wednesday, Sept. 10. He was on the injury report last week with a calf ailment.

    Huddle Up: Whew, dodged another bullet. Maybe the Patriots can go back to listing Brady as questionable (shoulder), like they've done for the better part of the last decade.

  • Eddie Lacy - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/11/14 10:34am ET

    Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (concussion) is in the final stages of the concussion protocol, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. The final hurdle for Lacy is being cleared by an independent neurologist.

    Huddle Up: Keep James Starks on speed dial just in case, but as of now it looks like Lacy should be good to go for the Packers' home opener this weekend.

  • Jordan Cameron - TE - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/10/14 10:55pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (shoulder) underwent an MRI on his sprained right shoulder and it showed no structural damage. 'Yeah, it's all good,' Cameron said. 'Right now, it's just a day-to-day thing. Just seeing how it feels when I wake up, and we'll go from there.' Cameron sprained his AC joint in Week 1, the second time he has done so since Aug. 2.

    Huddle Up: Cameron's injury could linger all year, so the Browns my opt to sit him out this week against New Orleans to allow his shoulder to get more time to heal. If Cameron doesn't play, Gary Barnidge would get the start. He has no fantasy value.

  • Andre Ellington - RB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/10/14 9:17pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10.

    Huddle Up: Ellington is resting his sore foot but he should be good to against the Giants after playing the entire game on Monday night. Ellington figures to get a bit more work this week making him a solid RB2.

  • Brandon Marshall - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/10/14 9:17pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 10, due to his ankle injury.

    Huddle Up: Marshal is expected to play Sunday night against the 49ers but owners should monitor his status throughout the week. Marshall is a Top 10 WR as long as he's in the lineup.

  • Alshon Jeffery - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/10/14 9:17pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) did not take part in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10, due to his hamstring injury.

    Huddle Up: Jeffery is more doubtful for Sunday night's game than teammate Brandon Marshall because of his tender hamstring. Owners should have another option ready if it looks like Jeffery isn't going to start in the Sunday night game. Santonio Holmes would get the nod if Jeffery can't go and be a sneaky R3/flex play.

  • Maurice Jones-Drew - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/10/14 9:17pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10.

    Huddle Up: Jones-Drew reportedly had a procedure done on his hand but may not miss any time. Darren McFadden will get the start Sunday against Houston if MJD is out but neither player is worthy of anything more than a flex play at this point.

  • Lance Moore - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 9/10/14 5:05pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Lance Moore (groin) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10, and has been ruled out for Week 2.

    Huddle Up: The offseason acquisition will miss a second straight game, meaning additional passes will continue to be directed the way of fellow wideouts Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton.

  • Jordan Cameron - TE - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/10/14 5:02pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron underwent an MRI on his injured shoulder, which did not show any structural damage. He has a strained AC joint in his shoulder.

    Huddle Up: "No structural damage" is good news for Cameron's fantasy owners, but it remains to be seen if the TE will miss any starts. Monitor his status the rest of the week.

  • Marqise Lee - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/10/14 5:02pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee suffered a hamstring injury during practice Wednesday, Sept. 10, and is listed as a limited participant.

    Huddle Up: Aside from Allen Hurns' rags-to-Week-1-riches story, the bad news keeps coming for the Jags' WRs. Lee quietly had a solid debut (6-62 on a team-high 10 targets) in Hurns' shadow Sunday, and his fantasy owners are going to have to see what the rookie can do in practice the rest of the week.

  • Toby Gerhart - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/10/14 5:02pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10.

    Huddle Up: It's the first practice of the week so it might be a precautionary measure. Check back Thursday, though, and see if he's able to get back on the field.

  • Alshon Jeffery - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/10/14 5:02pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10.

    Huddle Up: Jeffery also missed most of the second half in the season opener and so this definitely bears watching the rest of the week.
