Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 10/22/18 8:46pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones posted team highs with nine receptions and 104 yards in the Week 7 game against the New York Giants on Monday, Oct. 22, while he was targeted a game-high 12 times, but he failed to find the end zone again.

    Huddle Up: Jones is second in the NFL in receiving yardage (812 yards) with 53 receptions and 81 targets, but he has failed to find the end zone in 12 regular-season games dating back to last season.

  • Marvin Hall - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 10/22/18 8:44pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Marvin Hall posted three receptions for 63 yards and a 47-yard touchdown on three targets in the Week 7 game against the New York Giants on Monday, Oct. 22.

    Huddle Up: Hall was the only Falcons receiver to get into the end zone in the 23-20 victory. Despite the long score he is only worth fantasy consideration in leagues of 16 or more teams in Week 9 when the team returns from a bye.

  • Ito Smith - RB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 10/22/18 8:42pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Ito Smith rushed seven times for just 16 yards in the Week 7 game against the New York Giants and he had two receptions for 29 yards on his two targets.

    Huddle Up: Smith was bottled up in the rushing attack, and he did nothing to carve into Tevin Coleman's workload. The Falcons are on their bye in Week 8, so you'll need another flex option in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 10/22/18 8:40pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed 11 times for 50 yards and a 30-yard rushing score in Week 7 against the New York Giants on Monday, Oct. 22, and he added two receptions for 32 yards.

    Huddle Up: Coleman's rushing average would have been dismal if not for his big scoring run. Fantasy owners will need to make alternate plans with the Falcons off in Week 8.

  • Matt Ryan - QB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 10/22/18 8:38pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 31-of-39 passes for 379 yards, one touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 7 game against the New York Giants on Monday, Oct. 22.

    Huddle Up: Ryan was very careful with the ball, throwing plenty of short-yardage, low-risk routes, although he did air it out for a 47-yard touchdown to Marvin Hall to open the scoring midway through the second quarter. Ryan continues to be a solid fantasy option, although you'll need to make alternate plans with a bye coming in Week 8 for the Falcons.

  • Odell Beckham - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 10/22/18 8:30pm ET

    New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. racked up eight receptions, a season-high 143 yards and a touchdown on a team-high 11 targets in the Week 7 game against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday, Oct. 22 for his fourth 100-yard game of the season.

    Huddle Up: Beckham has scored a touchdown in two of his past three games and he has six or more receptions in five consecutive outings, and six of seven contests overall. The offense has been shaky overall, but he continues to post solid fantasy numbers. The Giants host the Redskins in Week 8.

  • Sterling Shepard - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 10/22/18 8:26pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard pulled down five receptions for a career-high 167 yards on eight targets in the Week 7 game against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday, Oct. 22.

    Huddle Up: It was Shepard's first 100-yard game of the season, and just the fifth time hitting the century mark in his three-year NFL career. He has three or more receptions in all seven outings this season, serving as a solid WR3 in most PPR formats. The Giants host the Redskins in Week 8.

  • Evan Engram - TE - New York Giants
    Posted 10/22/18 8:24pm ET

    New York Giants TE Evan Engram posted two receptions for 16 yards and four targets in Week 7 against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday, Oct. 22, and he added a 10-yard run.

    Huddle Up: Engram returned to the lineup after missing a few games, but he wasn't terribly involved in the offense. It might take a couple of games for him to get back up to speed. Treat him as more of a TE2 heading into Week 8 against the Washington Redskins, but he definitely has TE1 ability.

  • Saquon Barkley - RB - New York Giants
    Posted 10/22/18 8:22pm ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rushed 14 times for a team-high 43 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday, Oct. 22, and he added nine receptions for 51 yards on 10 targets.

    Huddle Up: The best thing that happened was the Giants being behind for a good chunk of the game, as they passed frequently. That meant a ton of short routes and catches for Barkley. He has been everything as advertised despite a terrible offensive line. The Redskins pay a visit to MetLife Stadium in Week 8 to face the G-Men.

  • Eli Manning - QB - New York Giants
    Posted 10/22/18 8:18pm ET

    New York Giants QB Eli Manning completed 27-of-38 passes for 399 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 7 loss against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday, Oct. 22.

    Huddle Up: Manning rolled up big yardage, but it wasn't a great fantasy stat line and the 23-20 score isn't indicative of how ugly this game was. He'll look for more consistency in Week 8 against the visiting Washington Redskins.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 10/22/18 7:49pm ET

    Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (groin) said Monday, Oct. 22 that he is close to 100 percent and he feels he has made so much improvement from his groin injury that he could be ready to play as soon as Sunday, Oct. 28. He has been contacted by several interested teams and might be an option for those who missed out on trading for Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper.

    Huddle Up: Pryor has to find a landing place first, and then he has to learn a new offense, playbook and quarterback. It might take a while for Pryor to re-gain any fantasy relevance.

  • Will Fuller - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 10/22/18 5:46pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hip) fully participated in the team's walkthrough Monday, Oct. 22.

    Huddle Up: Fuller was targeted eight times in Week 7 and could be more involved this week if Keke Coutee is not able to play. Fuller has a chance to be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 10/22/18 5:44pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) fully participated in the team's walkthrough Monday, Oct. 22.

    Huddle Up: Miller is coming off his best game of the season in Week 7 and should continue to see a solid amount of carries this week against the Miami Dolphins. Owners can consider Miller has a flex option in most leagues.

  • Deshaun Watson - QB - Houston Texans
    Posted 10/22/18 5:37pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson (chest) fully participated in the team's walkthrough Monday, Oct. 22.

    Huddle Up: Watson has not posted great numbers over the past few weeks and only has three touchdown passes in the last three weeks. Owners can still consider Watson a low-end No. 1 quarterback despite his recent struggles, but he can also be benched if better options are available.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 10/22/18 5:32pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (foot) was limited during the team's walkthrough Monday, Oct. 22.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins has held to only 50 yards in the last game but does have a touchdown in three of the last four games. He should be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues no matter the opponent.

  • Keke Coutee - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 10/22/18 5:27pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) was limited during the team's walkthrough Monday, Oct. 22.

    Huddle Up: Coutee was not able to finish the Week 7 game because of the injury, so his status for this week is uncertain. Owners should know more about his availability in the next few days, but he will be a risky option if he is active.

  • Adam Vinatieri - PK - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 10/22/18 3:38pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts PK Adam Vinatieri (groin) is dealing with a groin injury and will be on the injury report for Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Vinatieri will be able to play this week. He has been a consistent fantasy option for a long time, but owners will need other options available in case he is ruled out.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 10/22/18 2:55pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (groin) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Oct. 22.

    Huddle Up: Look for Doug Martin to lead the Raiders in carries going forward, but Jalen Richard is the Oakland running back you want on your squad. He has been heavily involved in the passing game and will see more carries with Lynch out. Starting Richard as a PPR flex going forward is a viable strategy.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 10/22/18 2:44pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will not report to the team this week, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Bell may not report to the team until after the trade deadline next week, so owners should continue to monitor the situation. James Conner will continue to receive most of the work at running back and can be a No. 1 running back in all leagues this week.

  • Brock Osweiler - QB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 10/22/18 2:20pm ET

    Miami Dolphins QB Brock Osweiler (back) fully participated in practice Monday, Oct. 22.

    Huddle Up: Osweiler saw a drop in his passing yards in Week 7 but still had a productive game against the Detroit Lions. He will be facing a solid Houston Texans defense this week and may only be a bye week replacement in deeper leagues.
