Fantasy Football Breaking News

Please view Game day inactives, injuries and weather on Sundays as it will contain inactive reports and playing status news for all fantasy players.

  • Julian Edelman - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 10/21/18 6:14am ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (heel) is expected to play in Week 7's game against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Edelman was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. The fact that he traveled with the team bodes well for his chances of playing this afternoon and he's worthy of consideration as a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3 in all fantasy formats.

  • Sony Michel - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 10/21/18 6:10am ET

    New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) is expected to play in Week 7's game against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Michel was listed as questionable on the injury report after putting in three limited practice sessions during the week. He has gained at least 95 rushing yards in each of his last three games and should receive the bulk of the carries again this afternoon, making him a viable RB2 option in all formats.

  • Travis Benjamin - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 10/21/18 5:47am ET

    Confirming a previous report, Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (foot) is active for Week 7's game against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin had been listed as questionable on the injury report after putting in two limited practice sessions and one full session during the week. However, he has not been a great fantasy option this season and should be avoided in all formats.

  • Pierre Garcon - WR - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 10/21/18 5:44am ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (shoulder, knee) is expected to play in Week 7's game against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Garcon was listed as questionable on the injury report after putting in two limited practice sessions during the week. He faces a difficult matchup this week against the Rams' defense and is not a great fantasy option due to San Francisco's less-than-ideal quarterback situation, despite being targeted at least six times in each of his last three contests.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/21/18 5:38am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle, shoulder) is expected to play in Week 7's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Peterson was listed as questionable on the injury report after logging two limited practice sessions during the week. He is averaging 4.4 yards per carry this season and should see a similar workload to last week because Chris Thompson (rib, knee) is likely to miss his second consecutive game. Peterson should be viewed as a solid RB2 option in all fantasy formats.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 10/21/18 5:30am ET

    Confirming a previous report, Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler is expected to be the team's lead running back for Week 7's game against the Tennessee Titans, as a result of RB Melvin Gordon (hamstring) being ruled out.

    Huddle Up: Tennessee's rushing defense has allowed an average of 123.2 yards per game this season (26th in the NFL), so this is a very favorable matchup for Ekeler, who has performed well this year in limited playing time. Through six games this season, Ekeler is averaging 6.4 yards per carry and he also has 207 receiving yards and three receiving touchdowns. He makes a solid starting option this week in all fantasy formats.

  • Allen Robinson - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 10/20/18 11:30pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) is listed as questionable on the Week 7 injury report but expected to play in Week 7 versus the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: While it is good news for Robinson's fantasy owners, he will likely attract shadow coverage from Stephen Gilmore. As a result, Robinson's presence should make life easier for Taylor Gabriel, Trey Burton and Tarik Cohen if the Bears, especially if the Bears are forced to pass in order to keep up with the Patriots in the second half. Robinson should be considered a WR3 for this matchup, while Gabriel, Burton and Cohen should be started confidently in most leagues.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 10/20/18 10:08pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) is not expected to play in Week 7 versus the Chicago Bears, but he is expected back to go against the Buffalo Bills in Week 8, according to a source. The idea behind resting him in Week 7 is merely precautionary, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    Huddle Up: There was some fear he was going to miss multiple weeks, so while that could still be the case, it doesn't appear as if he is dealing with anything significant. Backup Jacob Hollister has already been ruled out and the Patriots have yet to make Dwayne Allen a big part of the offense, so Gronkowski's owners have little choice but to look elsewhere for a replacement this week.

  • Chris Thompson - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/20/18 9:14pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib, knee) isn't expected to play against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 7, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: With Thompson unlikely to suit up and Adrian Peterson in line to play, the latter should be a solid bet for RB2 production.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 10/20/18 8:54pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) is not expected to play against the Chicago Bears in Week 7, but he is expected to play against the Buffalo Bills in Week 8, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Injuries are nothing new for Gronkowski, but at least it sounds like he will only miss a game with this latest ailment. Plug him back in as a TE1 against the Bills next week.

  • Eric Ebron - TE - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 10/20/18 7:59pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron has been isolated on the back side of defenses this year as a way to take advantage of his athleticism, according to head coach Frank Reich. 'It's like clearing it out for LeBron or something, in basketball; just get everybody on one side of the court and get this guy one-on-one,' Reich said.

    Huddle Up: Ebron has six touchdowns in six games this year, and he looks like a different player since leaving Detroit. Injuries to the receiving corps have boosted his usage, but the Colts seem to know how to utilize Ebron, and he looks like a TE1 for the foreseeable future.

  • Isaiah Crowell - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 10/20/18 7:40pm ET

    New York Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (foot) is listed as questionable to face the Minnesota Vikings in Week 7 but is expected to play, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.

    Huddle Up: Crowell has been an all-or-nothing option for fantasy owners this season, but he has enough upside to take a chance on if you need a flex play.

  • Cole Beasley - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 10/20/18 7:22pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley has shown 'No. 1-ish' qualities with his ability to create separation, according to owner Jerry Jones.

    Huddle Up: Beasley is coming of a big performance against the Jaguars in Week 6, but it remains to be seen if that performance was a fluke or a sign of things to come.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/20/18 6:25pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle, shoulder) has helped the offense more than head coach Jay Gruden expected. 'He's mentally tough,' Gruden said. 'He's physically tough. And he makes us better.'

    Huddle Up: Peterson is averaging 4.4 yards per carry and has topped 90 rushing yards in three of his five games, proving he still has some gas left in the tank. He is expected to play through his injuries and face the Dallas Cowboys in Week 7, and he can be deployed as a RB2.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 10/20/18 1:46pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) did not travel with the team for the Week 7 game against the Chicago Bears, according to a league source. However, he has not yet been ruled out.

    Huddle Up: If Gronkowski cannot play it would be Dwayne Allen serving as the starter with Jacob Hollister as the primary backup. Neither player would be particularly attractive from a fantasy perspective.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 10/20/18 1:31pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New York Jets WR Terrelle Pryor (groin) was officially released Saturday, Oct. 20 and the team signed WR Deontay Burnett to take his spot on the 53-man roster.

    Huddle Up: Pryor has playing well before his ailment, but he suffered a multi-week injury and the team elected to move on for immediate help. It's uncertain when he'll be back, but it might take him a while to get back up to speed after a torn groin muscle.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 10/20/18 1:09pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler could serve as the lead back in Week 7 against the Tennessee Titans depending on the status of RB Melvin Gordon (hamstring, dehydration). Gordon was downgraded to questionable on Saturday, Oct. 20, less than 24 hours before kickoff in London.

    Huddle Up: Ekeler isn't a bad fantasy option if he gets the start, but Gordon would need to be inactive. It's a 9:30 a.m. ET kickoff, so you'll have to check back 90 minutes before the game for Gordon's status. If he is out, Ekeler could make noise against a Titans rush defense which ranks 26th in the NFL, allowing 123.2 yards per game.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 10/20/18 1:05pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (hamstring) has been downgraded to questionable for the Week 7 game against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Gordon has been dealing with a hamstring injury and some dehydration issues. There is still a 50-50 chance he'll play, but being downgraded less than 24 hours before kickoff is alarming for fantasy owners, especially with a 9:30 a.m. ET kickoff. Check back 90 minutes before kick for his official status and have reserves at the ready just in case. Austin Ekeler would see a larger role if Gordon is out with Justin Jackson serving as the backup.

  • Calvin Ridley - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 10/20/18 12:48pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (ankle) went through a limited practice Saturday, Oct. 20 and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 7 game against the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Ridley has slowed down over the past two games, posting seven grabs for 85 yards on eight targets, but he does have 22 receptions, 349 yards and six touchdowns in six games overall. He has emerged as a solid WR3 in most fantasy formats.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 10/20/18 12:45pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hip) was about to take part in a limited practice Saturday, Oct. 20 and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 7 game against the New York Giants on Monday, Oct. 22.

    Huddle Up: Sanu is working as the No. 3 receiver behind Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley, so treat him more as a WR5 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.
