Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Doug Baldwin - WR - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/25/17 7:57am ET

    Updating previous reports, Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (groin) will have an MRI Monday, Sept. 25, but his groin injury isn't believed to be serious.

    Huddle Up: Baldwin had a 10-105-1 performance and is a high-end WR2 if he's able to suit up against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 4.

  • Darren Sproles - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/25/17 7:32am ET

    Updating earlier reports, Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (arm, knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee and broke his arm on the same play, according to sources. He will have surgery on his arm Monday, Sept. 25, and will have knee surgery later.

    Huddle Up: Expect a committee of LeGarrette Blount, Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement in Sproles' absence. Blount had a 12-67-1 day in Week 3, but he didn't have a single carry in Week 2. His usage isn't guaranteed every week. Smallwood had 12 rushes for 71 yards. Clement was mixed in late in the game, and he had a 6-22-1 showing. Blount and Smallwood are RB3 mix-and-match players. Clement is worth picking up in deeper formats or as a speculative backup.

  • Darren Sproles - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/25/17 5:16am ET

    Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (arm) is out indefinitely with what is believed to be a broken arm, according to sources. He'll have an MRI Monday, Sept. 25, to confirm.

    Huddle Up: Wendell Smallwood figures to enter a committee with LeGarrette Blount in Sproles' absence. Smallwood had 12 carries for 71 yards in Week 3 and is an RB3 candidate.

  • Kirk Cousins - QB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/24/17 9:08pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 25 of his 30 passes for 365 yards and three touchdowns in a 27-10 win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: After a sloppy start to the year, Cousins had a breakout performance against Oakland. His QB1 upside is undeniable, but Cousins could be a boom-or-bust option on the road against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 4.

  • Chris Thompson - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/24/17 8:59pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson had eight carries for 38 yards and six catches for 150 yards and a touchdown in a 27-10 win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Thompson now has four touchdowns in three games, and while he won't have this many receiving yards on a routine basis, he is a viable flex option in PPR formats because of his steady role in the passing game.

  • Eric Decker - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/24/17 8:46pm ET

    Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker finished with four catches on five targets for 49 yards in a 33-27 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: It was actually Decker's most productive game of the year, and if Corey Davis is sidelined again in Week 4, Decker could be a WR4 option against the Houston Texans.

  • Seth Roberts - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/24/17 8:45pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Seth Roberts posted four receptions for 20 yards on five targets in Week 3 against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: The Oakland wideouts had seven of the team's 18 receptions, and Roberts accounted for four of them. It isn't often he puts up more stats than Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree combined, so that will tell you a little bit about how this game went without looking at the stats. He is only worth fantasy consideration in deeper PPR formats heading into Week 4 against the Denver Broncos and beyond.

  • Jared Cook - TE - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/24/17 8:42pm ET

    Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook racked up four receptions for a team-high 43 yards and his first touchdown of the season in Week 3 against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Cook was the only fantasy bright spot in an otherwise dismal night for the Oakland offense. They face another tough matchup in Week 4 against the Denver Broncos. He remains more of a TE2 despite the score.

  • DeAndre Washington - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/24/17 8:41pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB DeAndre Washington posted five receptions for 24 yards on six targets in Week 3 against the Washington Redskins and he had one rush for no gain.

    Huddle Up: Washington can be an effective change of pace back for the Raiders when they need a spark, but they need way more in this game. The Raiders offense was horrendous. They'll look to rebound in Week 4 at Denver in another tough matchup. Washington is only worth using in deeper PPR leagues as long as Marshawn Lynch remains healthy.

  • Amari Cooper - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/24/17 8:36pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper posted just one catch for six yards in the Week 3 game against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Cooper and the Raiders offense was held down by a dominating Washington defense. He'll look to bounce back in Week 4 against the Denver Broncos, but that's another difficult matchup. Treat Cooper more as a WR3 for Week 4.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/24/17 8:35pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch rushed six times for just 18 yards in Week 3 against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Lynch did nothing against a dominant Washington defense, and the Raiders got away from the run in the second half which kept Lynch on the sidelines with a long face and a knit hat to watch the rout on a knee. He'll have better days, trying to get it going again in Week 4 in Denver.

  • Derek Carr - QB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/24/17 8:34pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 18 of his 30 pass attempts for just 110 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Week 3 game against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Carr was sacked four times and he turned in a dismal 50.7 quarterback rating, as the Redskins defense seemed to be in the backfield harassing him all evening. He'll look to bounce back in Week 4 on the road against the Broncos in another difficult matchup.

  • Delanie Walker - TE - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/24/17 8:22pm ET

    Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker finished with four catches on six targets for 31 yards in a 33-27 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: After topping 60 yards in each of the first two games, Walker was limited to a few short gains against Seattle. There is no need to hit the panic button. Walker has reached 800 receiving yards in each of the last three seasons and can continue to be deployed as a TE1 moving forward.

  • Derrick Henry - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/24/17 8:12pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (thigh) suffered a bruised thigh in a 33-27 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3, according to head coach Mike Mularkey. Henry played through the injury and finished with 13 carries for 54 yards and one catch for 10 yards.

    Huddle Up: The injury doesn't sound too serious, and Henry finished with one less carry than DeMarco Murray, who came into the game nursing a hamstring injury of his own. When healthy, Murray should continue to lead the backfield, but Henry remains a must-own backup, especially for Murray owners.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/24/17 8:09pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (chest) left the Week 3 game against the Washington Redskins in the second half due to a chest injury and he is questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Crabtree exploded for three touchdowns against the New York Jets in Week 2, but he had managed just one grab for seven yards on three targets before checking out on Sunday.

  • Andy Dalton - QB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/24/17 8:04pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 21 of his 27 pass attempts for 212 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-24 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Dalton had a brutal first two games, but he was at least serviceable in the first game with Bill Lazor as the offensive coordinator. He may be turning a corner, but he is still no more than a QB2 heading into a Week 4 meeting with the Cleveland Browns.

  • Jeremy Hill - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/24/17 7:55pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill finished with seven carries for 23 yards and one catch for six yards in a 27-24 loss to Green Bay Packers in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Hill saw 11 fewer carries than Joe Mixon, and he seems to be falling further behind the rookie. At this point, Hill is only worth stashing in case Mixon goes down with an injury.

  • Joe Mixon - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/24/17 7:38pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon finished with a team-high 18 carries for 62 yards and three catches for 39 yards in a 27-24 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Mixon had 11 more carries than Jeremy Hill, the biggest discrepancy so far this season. It's too soon to tell if the trend will continue, but the needle is pointing up for Mixon, and he could soon find himself entrenched as a RB2.

  • Samaje Perine - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/24/17 7:32pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (hand) left the Week 3 game against the Oakland Raiders in the second half due to a hand injury. He is questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Perine had 19 carries for 48 yards while adding a catch for six yards before departing. He was seeing a heavy workload with Rob Kelley sidelined.

  • A.J. Green - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/24/17 7:30pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green finished with 10 catches on 13 yards for 111 yards and a touchdown in a 27-24 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Green's status as the top option in the passing game is unquestioned, but it was still good to see the Cincinnati offense look competent for the first time all season. Green remains a WR1 in all formats.
