Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Allen Hurns - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 3/20/18 4:55pm ET

    Free-agent WR Allen Hurns (Jaguars) said he has received interest from the Chicago Bears, Buffalo Bills, New Orleans Saints, Houston Texans, New York Jets, Oakland Raiders and Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Hurns was limited to only 10 games in 2017 and finished with 484 yards and two touchdowns. He could be a No. 3 receiver for a team next season and has a chance to be a late-round option in deeper fantasy leagues.

  • Allen Hurns - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars

    Free-agent WR Allen Hurns (Jaguars) has a visit scheduled with the New York Jets Wednesday, March 21, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Hurns' situation will have gone from mediocre to worse if he signs on with the Jets. New York did themselves a favor by re-signing Josh McCown and bringing on Teddy Bridgewater, but neither quarterback is consistent enough to make any Jets receiver a week-to-week starting option. The good news is that Hurns would have the opportunity to make an immediate impact in a subpar receiving corps.

  • Cameron Meredith - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 3/20/18 2:41pm ET

    Chicago Bears restricted free-agent WR Cameron Meredith visited the Indianapolis Colts Tuesday, March 20, according to a source. If they so desire the Bears would be able to match any offer the Colts give Meredith.

    Huddle Up: The Colts are making some decent moves to help improve Andrew Luck's offense. They've already signed Ryan Grant and Eric Ebron and have even added some offensive line help. It will be more difficult to acquire Meredith since he is a restricted free agent, but it's an intriguing marriage that is bound to be underrated if it comes to fruition.

  • Eric Decker - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 3/20/18 11:30am ET

    Free-agent WR Eric Decker (Titans) is not visiting the New Orleans Saints Tuesday, March 20. It had been reported elsewhere that Decker was on his way to visit New Orleans.

    Huddle Up: Joining the Saints could breathe new life back into Decker's fantasy value, but alas he is not visiting, at least not yet. Teaming up with Drew Brees is a promising proposition for anyone, especially with Decker's red-zone ability. Nevertheless, Decker remains a late-round flier until we know where he'll be playing next.

  • Kai Forbath - PK - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 3/20/18 11:13am ET

    Free-agent PK Kai Forbath (Vikings) is re-signing to an undisclosed deal with the Minnesota Vikings Tuesday, March 20, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Forbath was a quality starting fantasy kicker in 2017 despite missing six field goals and five extra points. With Kirk Cousins in town the Vikings should be scoring plenty again this year, making Forbath a No. 1 fantasy kicker for a second straight year.

  • Ryan Grant - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 3/20/18 9:10am ET

    Free-agent WR Ryan Grant (Redskins) reportedly signed a one-year contract worth $5 million with the Indianapolis Colts on Tuesday, March 20.

    Huddle Up: The Colts need help and depth in a lots of places, and Grant should see a significant amount of time on a team that doesn't have any proof players at receiver besides T.Y. Hilton. Ideally, Grant ends up being Indianapolis's third receiver who gets some run in the slot. He could flirt with fantasy relevancy in 2018, but he would probably need an injury to Hilton or Chester Rogers in order for it to happen.

  • Allen Hurns - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 3/20/18 7:32am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns will be released Tuesday, March 20, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Hurns is always nicked up, and his 64-1,031-10 season was three years ago now. He's worth monitoring, and there's potential, but he's a WR4 or WR5.

  • Matt Ryan - QB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 3/19/18 11:40pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan is 'likely' to sign a contract extension this week that is 'expected to pay him near $30 million per season,' according to Jeff Schultz of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

    Huddle Up: After reaching the Super Bowl and winning MVP honors during the 2016 season, Ryan took a step back this past season, though that isn't to say he had a down year, since he certainly did not. After all, the 10-year veteran still eclipsed the 4,000-yard mark for the seventh straight campaign while logging a solid 91.4 passer rating. He's still firmly in the QB1 picture without question and should present much better value next season.

  • C.J. Prosise - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 3/19/18 10:20pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider recently mentioned that the club 'needs' RB C.J. Prosise 'to be a reliable dude,' adding that he's an 'extremely talented guy.'

    Huddle Up: Seattle's running game was a mess last season, although that had a lot to do with most of their tailbacks being banged up, including Prosise, who landed on injured reserve in mid-November and did not return. That's been a theme of his career up to this point, having played in just 11 out of a possible 32 games since being drafted two years ago. As Schneider said, he's talented but needs to stay healthy, and he'll carve out a useful role if that is the case.

  • Carson Wentz - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 3/19/18 9:58pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) posted video of himself throwing inside the team's practice facility Monday, March 19, as he 'appears to be making some significant strides' in his rehab from a torn ACL and LCL. He's still aiming to return for the season opener.

    Huddle Up: All indications are that Wentz will indeed be ready for the start of the season, which means he can be drafted as your standard QB1 after the sensational sophomore showing he exhibited this past year. Prior to going down with a season-ending injury, Wentz had posted a 101.9 passer rating in 13 games, as he finished with 3,296 yards and 33 touchdowns compared to just seven interceptions.

  • Eric Ebron - TE - Free Agent
    Posted 3/19/18 5:54pm ET

    Free-agent TE Eric Ebron (Lions) signed a two-year contract with the Indianapolis Colts worth a maximum value of $15 million on Monday, March 19, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    Huddle Up: This is a curious signing for the Colts, if only because tight end isn't necessarily a need for the team (Jack Doyle) and Ebron isn't a particularly good blocker. Indianapolis was one of the worst places for Ebron from a fantasy perspective, as he seems unlikely to beat out Doyle. Even if the Colts play more two-tight sets than any other team in the league in 2018, Ebron will likely struggle to maintain TE2 value while also hurting Doyle's case for TE1 status.

  • DeMarco Murray - RB - Free Agent
    Posted 3/19/18 2:06pm ET

    Free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Titans) left his visit with the Miami Dolphins without an agreement Monday, March 19.

    Huddle Up: That doesn't mean an agreement can't eventually get done, but Murray can visit other teams. He's one of the bigger names still on the free-agent market but will assuredly be part of a committee once he finds a new team. Approach him as an RB3 or flex with more upside in PPR scenarios.

  • Donte Moncrief - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 3/19/18 8:42am ET

    Updating previous reports, Jacksonville Jaguars WR Donte Moncrief signed a one-year, $9.6 million deal with $2 million in potential incentives. The contract is fully guaranteed.

    Huddle Up: Moncrief scored touchdowns in bunches, but he has yet to show he can be a reliable fantasy contributor. He's worth the WR4 flyer.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 3/19/18 7:44am ET

    Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (Redskins) will visit the New York Jets, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Pryor could still have some PPR luster as a WR4 or WR5, depending on the situation.

  • Eric Ebron - TE - Free Agent
    Posted 3/19/18 6:43am ET

    Free-agent TE Eric Ebron (Lions) is visiting the Indianapolis Colts Monday, March 19.

    Huddle Up: Ebron has all the physical talent, but he has been oft-injured and a fantasy bust since he entered the league. There is still time to put it together, and he's worth monitoring as a TE2.

  • Chad Henne - QB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 3/18/18 8:02pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Chad Henne said he is ready to embrace a 'mentor role' and help QB Patrick Mahomes.

    Huddle Up: Mahomes is unproven, but he will have plenty of weapons to throw to as he begins his first year as a starter. He will be an upside-QB2 in 2018.

  • Eli Manning - QB - New York Giants
    Posted 3/18/18 6:47pm ET

    New York Giants QB Eli Manning earned a $5 million roster bonus Sunday, March 18, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: The Giants had already publicly committed to Manning, so this was no surprise. He still has some solid weapons to throw to and should be a serviceable backup option for fantasy owners next year.

  • Jeremy Hill - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 3/18/18 6:27pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Jeremy Hill's contract is for one year and $1.5 million with only his $150,000 signing bonus guaranteed.

    Huddle Up: If Hill assumes the role of power back in New England's high-scoring offense, he could have RB2 potential because of ample scoring chances.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 3/18/18 6:17pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree will be 'a reliable receiver' for QB Joe Flacco, according to retired WR Anquan Boldin. 'I had a chance to play with Crab for two or three years out in San Francisco,' Boldin said. 'Like I said, competitive guy, he?s a crafty guy, a veteran guy, a guy that can really catch the ball.'

    Huddle Up: Crabtree should immediately become Baltimore's top possession guy, and he's also been productive in the red zone. The Baltimore passing game isn't great, but Crabtree should still be a solid WR3 in 2018.

  • Ryan Grant - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 3/18/18 4:51pm ET

    Free-agent WR Ryan Grant (ankle) passed a physical with the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, March 18, but left without a deal. He will visit with the Oakland Raiders next, a source said.

    Huddle Up: Grant had a deal in place with the Baltimore Ravens, but he flunked their physical due to an ankle injury he suffered in the regular season finale. It appears the minor setback will not keep him from finding a home soon. Indy might be a better landing spot for his fantasy appeal, since Oakland has Amari Cooper, Jordy Nelson, etc.
