Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Michael Thomas - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 12/15/17 1:39pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (eye) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 15, and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 15 game with the New York Jets. He will be playing with a protective visor after being poked in the eye.

    Huddle Up: Thomas has re-emerged as a fantasy must-start lately, posting 35 receptions for 447 yards and two touchdowns over the past five games. He has five or more grabs in 12 of his 13 games this season.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 12/15/17 1:38pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. (ribs) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 15, and he is listed as questionable for the Week 15 game against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: Ginn should be treated as a WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams at this point.

  • Alvin Kamara - RB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 12/15/17 1:38pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (concussion) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 15, and he has been removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 15 game with the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: Kamara will be ready for the Jets, and fantasy owners should feel confident using him as a RB2 across the board in all formats. He has really emerged as a stud this season and will be flying up draft boards heading into 2018, too.

  • Jermaine Kearse - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 12/15/17 1:37pm ET

    New York Jets WR Jermaine Kearse (shoulder) was able to practice in full for a third straight day Friday, Dec. 15, and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 15 game with the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Kearse has revived his career in recent weeks with the Jets, putting up solid numbers for a WR3 or flex option. However, he will now be catching passes from the untested Bryce Petty, as Josh McCown (hand) is done, so there might be a learning curve and a decrease in production down the stretch.

  • Robby Anderson - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 12/15/17 1:36pm ET

    New York Jets WR Robby Anderson (hamstring) was able to take part in a full practice session Friday, Dec. 15, and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 15 game with the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Anderson has emerged as a must-start fantasy option this season, although he should be treated more as a low-end WR2 or WR3, as he'll be catching his passes from Bryce Petty and not Josh McCown (hand). A dropoff is expected as he jells with a new signal caller.

  • Matt Forte - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 12/15/17 1:35pm ET

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) did not practice Friday, Dec. 15, and he is listed as questionable for the Week 15 game against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Forte is a risky fantasy play, as Bilal Powell is healthy and so is Elijah McGuire. The team might give Forte limited touches even if he is able to play, so be careful.

  • Braxton Miller - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/15/17 1:26pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 15, and has been ruled out for Week 15.

    Huddle Up: DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller and Stephen Anderson probably will see most of the targets during the game. Hopkins is a must-start option in all leagues, while the other two are risky options.

  • Tom Savage - QB - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/15/17 1:14pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 15, and has been ruled out for Week 15.

    Huddle Up: T.J. Yates will be the starting quarterback for the Texans against the Jacksonville Jaguars this week but should be avoided in all leagues.

  • Mike Wallace - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 12/15/17 12:52pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 15, and is listed as questionable for Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Wallace expects to play this week, but owners should check the inactive list to see if he will play. He has been targeted 24 times over the last three gams and could be a flex option in some leagues because of the favorable matchup.

  • Damien Williams - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 12/15/17 12:35pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams (illness, shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 15, and is listed as doubtful for Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Williams probably will not be able to play this week, so owners in all leagues should avoid him. Kenyan Drake will continue to receive most of the work at running back and can be a No. 2 running back or a flex option for owners.

  • Charles Clay - TE - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/15/17 12:25pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 15, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been quiet over the last several weeks with 27 yards or less in four of the last five games. Owners in all leagues probably can find better options to use and can avoid Clay this week.

  • LeSean McCoy - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/15/17 12:21pm ET

    Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 15, but is not on the injury report for Week 15.

    Huddle Up: McCoy will continue to be the focal point for the offense and is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

  • Tyrod Taylor - QB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/15/17 12:16pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 15, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Taylor will be the starting quarterback this week and probably will not be limited during the game. He has not posted great numbers over the last month and probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/15/17 12:16pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 15, and is listed as questionable for Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin appears to have a decent chance to play this week, but owners will need to check the inactive list to make sure. He has not been a big factor since joining the Bills and can be avoided in most leagues.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/15/17 11:42am ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (toe) is expected to play in Week 15 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

    Huddle Up: That has been the general feeling all along despite the fact Hopkins has missed consecutive days of practice. More concerning than his recent injury this week is the likelihood he will draw shadow coverage from Jalen Ramsey. With that said, Hopkins figures to see enough targets to be worth using in fantasy, although there would not appear to be much difference between his ceiling and floor this week.

  • Kyle Rudolph - TE - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 12/15/17 11:07am ET

    Contrary to an earlier report, Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) has been listed as doubtful for Week 15 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Rudolph will still more than likely be ruled out at some point over the weekend, but it's an interesting upgrade considering head coach Mike Zimmer himself reportedly ruled out his starting tight end earlier in the day. Stay tuned.

  • Kyle Rudolph - TE - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 12/15/17 10:45am ET

    Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) will not play in Week 15 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: With four touchdowns over the last three weeks, Rudolph had started to become a trusted red zone option for Case Keenum. Without him, it increases the likelihood of Stefon Diggs or Jerick McKinnon will have a solid game, as either player figures to benefit from the targets Rudolph leaves behind. Adam Thielen also has a higher ceiling as well.

  • Allen Hurns - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 12/15/17 8:36am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (ankle) remains out of practice Friday, Dec. 15.

    Huddle Up: Hurns looks to be out for Week 15, and Dede Westbrook remains a sneaky flex option against the Houston Texans.

  • Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 12/15/17 8:36am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (quadriceps) is out of practice Friday, Dec. 15.

    Huddle Up: He has missed a whole week of practice and still played, and he has already said he expects to face the Houston Texans. Until something comes out that foils that, he's a low-end RB1 or a high-end RB2.

  • Trevor Siemian - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 12/15/17 7:49am ET

    Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (shoulder) suffered a sprained left shoulder, and he'll have an MRI Friday, Dec. 15.

    Huddle Up: Brock Osweiler figures to start unless Paxton Lynch (ankle) makes it back, but neither are worth fantasy consideration.
