Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 12/17/17 11:19pm ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota threw for 241 yards and two touchdowns in a Week 15 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Mariota has had an up-and-down season, and this turned out to be one of his better outings. Still, Mariota has been uneven to the point where he's a high-end QB2 at the best.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo - QB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 12/17/17 11:15pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo threw for 381 yards and a touchdown in a narrow Week 15 win over the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Garoppolo is slowly playing into a QB1 role that could carry into next season. This is another strong outing for the former New England Patriots backup, and it came in a game where a lot of people had the Titans favored.

  • Russell Wilson - QB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 12/17/17 9:01pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 14 of his 30 passes for 142 yards and a touchdown and rushed five times for 39 yards in a 42-7 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Wilson and company fell behind early and could never find their rhythm. Expect him to return to his QB1 ways against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 16.

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 12/17/17 8:57pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins caught two passes for 14 yards in a 42-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: The lopsided nature of this game no doubt hurt Watkins, but now that Robert Woods is back, Watkins will be a risky, touchdown-dependent option over the final two games.

  • Cooper Kupp - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 12/17/17 8:54pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp caught two passes for 21 yards in a 42-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: The return of Robert Woods was expected to have an impact on Kupp's production, but the poor stat line can be blamed on Todd Gurley's dominance. Kupp should be a quality WR3 going forward.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 12/17/17 8:51pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell carried 24 times for 117 yards and a touchdown in Week 15 against the New England Patriots and he added five receptions for 48 yards on his six targets.

    Huddle Up: Bell seemed to benefit once Antonio Brown left the game due to injury, as he was the guy carrying a bigger load down the stretch and in the pass game in the second half. Bell, Martavis Bryant and JuJu Smith-Schuster will have to pick up the slack in at least the final two regular season games with Brown on the shelf.

  • Robert Woods - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 12/17/17 8:49pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods returned from a shoulder injury and finished with six catches for 45 yards and a touchdown in a 42-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: The passing attack wasn't needed much with Todd Gurley running wild, but Woods resumed his role as Jared Goff's top target. He should be in the WR2 conversation over the final two weeks.

  • Todd Gurley - RB - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 12/17/17 8:44pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley rushed 21 times for 152 yards and three touchdowns and caught three passes for 28 yards and a touchdown in a 42-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Gurley has been a must-start RB1 all year, but this was a big game even by his standards.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 12/17/17 8:43pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant ended up with four receptions for 59 yards and a touchdown on six targets in Week 15 against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Everyone in the receiver corps will move up a spot and have to pick up the slack with Antonio Brown (calf) going down for at least the final two regular season games. Treat Bryant as a WR4 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 16 and beyond.

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 12/17/17 8:43pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster posted six receptions for 114 yards and six targets in Week 15 against the New England Patriots, highlighted by a 69-yard catch and run late in the fourth quarter.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster will work as the team's No. 1 receiver in the final two regular season games with Antonio Brown (calf) sidelined by a partially torn calf muscle. He is worth using as a WR2 across the board in all fantasy leagues.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 12/17/17 8:42pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 22 of his 30 pass attempts for 281 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Week 15 game against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Big Ben nearly had a third touchdown, which might have been the game-winning score, but instant replay overturned it in a controversial ruling to some. He also lost Antonio Brown fairly early to injury and will be without him for the remainder of the regular season, so that hurts his fantasy appeal into Week 16 and Week 17.

  • Kenny Britt - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/17/17 8:41pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Kenny Britt made one reception for seven yards on his only target in Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Britt was brought aboard for depth and he isn't someone to rely upon for fantasy purposes down the stretch unless disaster totally strikes in New England.

  • Danny Amendola - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/17/17 8:41pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola posted just 23 yards on two receptions across four targets in Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Amendola has managed just 11 grabs for 148 yards and no scores over his past four outings. That type of production makes him more of a WR4 in PPR leagues, and WR5 in standard play heading into Week 16.

  • Brandin Cooks - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/17/17 8:40pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks finished with four receptions for 60 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Cooks had a couple of stinkers the past two games, posting just three grabs for 55 yards, but for those fantasy owners rolling the dice on him in fantasy playoff games he came through.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/17/17 8:40pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski finished with nine receptions for a game-high 168 yards on 13 targets in Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, his first game since serving a one-game suspension.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski was only off for one week and the suspension appears to have rejuvenated him like a late-season bye week. That's not what the rest of the NFL wanted to see.

  • Dion Lewis - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/17/17 8:39pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis posted 67 rushing yards with a touchdown on 13 carries in Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Lewis was leaned upon heavily after Rex Burkhead (knee) checked out in the second quarter. If Burkhead misses time, Lewis could be a valuable contributor in fantasy leagues heading into Week 16. Mike Gillislee might also re-surface in the backfield.

  • Tom Brady - QB - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/17/17 8:38pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 22 of his 35 pass attempts for 298 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 16 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Brady has managed just two touchdowns with four interceptions over the past three games, but he is still worth trusting as a low-end QB1 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 16.

  • Evan Engram - TE - New York Giants
    Posted 12/17/17 8:01pm ET

    New York Giants TE Evan Engram caught eight passes on 13 targets for 87 yards in a 34-29 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Engram is back on track after a bit of a slump, and he has topped 50 yards in three straight games. You can feel confident using him as a TE1.

  • Stephen Anderson - TE - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/17/17 7:47pm ET

    Houston Texans TE Stephen Anderson did not have any receptions on three targets in Week 15 agaisnt the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Anderson had a huge game in Week 13 and looked to have some promise, but he has done nothing over the past two outings. He cannot be trusted even if the deepest of fantasy leagues heading into Week 16.

  • Will Fuller - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/17/17 7:47pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller posted five receptions for 44 yards on his five targets in Week 15 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Fuller had some huge games earlier in the season, but that was when working with DeShaun Foster. Since Foster went down, and then Fuller returned from an injury himself, he has been very ordinary. Treat him as a WR4 or flex fantasy option in deeper leagues heading into Week 16. He hasn't been nearly as prolific with Tom Savage or T.J. Yates under center.
