Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 3/16/18 8:55pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins 'hasn't been used correctly as a pro,' according to an AFC scout. 'If he gets enough touches each game, he can be a difference-maker,' the scout said.

    Huddle Up: To be fair, injuries haven't helped his production either, but playing alongside Tyreek Hill, Watkins has tons of upside as a WR3.

  • Jaron Brown - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 3/16/18 8:28pm ET

    Free-agent WR Jaron Brown (Cardinals) has agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks Friday, March 16, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Seattle lost Jimmy Graham and Paul Richardson in free agency, but even with Seattle turning the offense over to Russell Wilson, Brown figures to be a bench option for fantasy owners.

  • Sam Bradford - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 3/16/18 7:05pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford (knee) said his knee is feeling strong despite all the injuries during his career. 'I've been through a lot with it, but all I can tell you is how I feel right now and really where it's gone since I had the procedure in November,' Bradford said. 'It's done nothing but get better and I feel good at the moment.'

    Huddle Up: Bradford will have some weapons to work with in Arizona, but his health is a major concern. Grab him as a QB2 and hope he can last the season.

  • LeGarrette Blount - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 3/16/18 6:37pm ET

    Free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount (Eagles) has agreed to a one-year deal with the Detroit Lions worth $4.5 million, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Detroit's ground game has been miserable in recent years, and Blount should immediately become the lead back in between the tackles and near the goal line. He could sneak into RB2 territory.

  • Jordan Matthews - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 3/16/18 5:21pm ET

    Free-agent WR Jordan Matthews (Bills) visited with the Arizona Cardinals on Friday, March 16.

    Huddle Up: Matthews had a disappointing and injury-marred season in Buffalo in 2017. He is looking to resurrect his career, and could be a nice addition in Arizona as they look to replace John Brown.

  • Jeremy Hill - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 3/16/18 4:05pm ET

    The New England Patriots are set to sign free-agent RB Jeremy Hill (Bengals), a source said Friday, March 16.

    Huddle Up: Hill will essentially replace Dion Lewis, who was lost to the Tennessee Titans. After being lost in the shuffle in the Queen City with Joe Mixon taking the reins of the offense, Hill might see a rebound in fantasy appeal depending on his role. Former Bengals back Rex Burkhead emerged as a solid fantasy option in Foxboro last season. Perhaps Hill will also see a renaissance.

  • Jarius Wright - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 3/16/18 3:32pm ET

    The Minnesota Vikings released WR Jarius Wright on Friday, March 16.

    Huddle Up: Wright posted 153 receptions for 2,039 yards and 10 touchdowns in his six seasons with the Vikings, including 198 yards and two scores last season. He might latch on with another organization, but his fantasy value remains rather minimal at this time.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 3/16/18 3:28pm ET

    The Baltimore Ravens reached an agreement with free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (Raiders) on a three-year contract on Friday, March 16, according to a source. Financial details were undisclosed.

    Huddle Up: Crabtree takes the place of Ryan Grant, who had his deal nullified due to a medical issue. The veteran receiver is probably a better addition than Grant anyway, as the latter never had a 100-yard game. Crabtree is likely to slot as the No. 1 receiver in Baltimore, and he'll be a solid WR3 or flex fantasy option in 2018.

  • Case Keenum - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 3/16/18 2:07pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum has $1 million in annual incentives, and they're entirely based on playoff wins.

    Huddle Up: Playoff wins do not mean anything to fantasy owners, who will be done by then. However, if he is able to realize those incentives it likely means he played at a high level during the regular season for his fantasy owners. He has one of the better one-two wideout duos in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, so expect big things out of Keenum.

  • Kirk Cousins - QB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 3/16/18 2:03pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins has $6 million in incentives, $2 million per year, tied to his three-year, $84 million deal. Those incentives are triggered by play time, team points scored and Super Bowl wins. To hit the highest level in any year, Cousins has to be Super Bowl MVP.

    Huddle Up: You like that? Cousins heads to the Twin Cities with lofty expectations, and with the additions on the defensive side of the ball the Vikings will be a favorite in the NFC. He'll be a decent low-end QB1 fantasy option heading into 2018.

  • Paxton Lynch - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 3/16/18 1:30pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch is the backup to QB Case Keenum, head coach Vance Joseph said Friday, March 16, although the team continues to look at top quarterback prospects in the 2018 NFL Draft. 'Paxton is still young,' president of football operations John Elway said. 'We still have high hopes for Paxton. He's a young guy that is talented. He's been here for two years and had a tough year last year with the injuries and everything, but we still have high hopes for Paxton to come in here and compete and continue to grow as a quarterback. That is the expectation for Paxton.'

    Huddle Up: The team might have high hopes for Lynch, but if they draft another prospect in the first-round it might never happen for Lynch in the Mile High City. Case Keenum will be starting in 2018, while also mentoring a young quarterback. It might not be Lynch he is mentoring.

  • Thomas Rawls - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 3/16/18 6:32am ET

    Free-agent RB Thomas Rawls (Seahawks) is visiting the Kansas City Chiefs Friday, March 16.

    Huddle Up: Rawls, while his fantasy balloon has all but popped, still has RB5 capability.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 3/16/18 5:17am ET

    Free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (Raiders) will visit the Baltimore Ravens Friday, March 16.

    Huddle Up: Crabtree can be a solid WR3 in PPR, but he'll need volume targets to reach that. He has some bust potential.

  • Jerick McKinnon - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 3/15/18 8:35pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said 'there's so many things' he likes about RB Jerick McKinnon, adding that he got 'lost' while immersing himself in watching his game film. 'This guy is violent, doesn't turn anything down,' Shanahan said. 'What is a huge bonus on him is when you talk about the pass game. When it comes to separating and beating linebackers and safeties in man-to-man coverage, I definitely think he?s an issue for teams.'

    Huddle Up: Shanahan is sold on McKinnon, which bodes well for his fantasy outlook in 2018. Fantasy circles have long envisioned a breakout from the former Vikings tailback, and while that hasn't exactly materialized yet, it could be this change of scenery for it to finally come to fruition. With Carlos Hyde gone, McKinnon might be in position to claim the starting gig, though Matt Breida impressed last year and also figures to see a lot of work.

  • Latavius Murray - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 3/15/18 6:33pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray has agreed to restructure his contract and will remain with the team, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Murray should have a solid role on offense in 2018 but will lose some work to Dalvin Cook. He can be a No. 3 running back in standard leagues but will be less valuable in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Latavius Murray - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 3/15/18 5:26pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray could be released if he does not agree to restructure his contract. His $5.15 million salary for 2018 will become guaranteed if he is on the roster Friday, March 16.

    Huddle Up: Murray is coming off a solid 2017 season where he rushed for 842 yards and eight touchdowns, but he probably will lose touches with Dalvin Cook returning from injury. He would receive interest if he becomes available in free agency but likely will be part of a committee no matter where he plays. He can be a No. 3 fantasy running back in 2018 depending on his role.

  • Eric Ebron - TE - Detroit Lions
    Posted 3/15/18 4:59pm ET

    Free-agent TE Eric Ebron (Lions) may have a meeting with the New England Patriots, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: The Patriots may be looking for a tight end because Rob Gronkowski's future is uncertain. Ebron probably would have a solid role in the passing game if he joined the Patriots and could be a No. 2 fantasy tight end.

  • Eric Ebron - TE - Detroit Lions
    Posted 3/15/18 4:58pm ET

    Free-agent TE Eric Ebron (Lions) is scheduled to meet with the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, March 18, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: The Colts have Jack Doyle on the roster, but Ebron would bring another target to the team's passing game if he joins the Colts. Ebron should have a solid role for a team next season and could be a No. 2 fantasy tight end.

  • Cairo Santos - PK - Chicago Bears
    Posted 3/15/18 4:01pm ET

    Free-agent PK Cairo Santos (Bears) signed with the New York Jets Thursday, March 15. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Santos has been a solid kicker in the past but may not be a weekly starting option for owners. He likely will be available on the waiver wire in most leagues.

  • Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TE - New York Jets
    Posted 3/15/18 1:34pm ET

    Free-agent TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (Jets) agreed to terms on an undisclosed contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday, March 15.

    Huddle Up: Seferian-Jenkins enjoyed a breakout year with the New York Jets last season and will presumably attempt to become the threat over the middle of the field they hoped to get from Julius Thomas. It's not the best landing spot for his fantasy upside, but the fact he can catch and block should keep him on the field enough to be a low-end TE1 in fantasy.
