Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Delanie Walker - TE - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 8/16/18 8:53am ET

    Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (undisclosed) left practice Thursday, Aug. 16.

    Huddle Up: Walker is always a sneaky PPR tight end to take later in drafts. Keep tabs on what the concern is with him.

  • Tom Brady - QB - New England Patriots
    Posted 8/16/18 7:51am ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (back) is expected to play deep into the first half of the second preseason game Thursday, Aug. 16.

    Huddle Up: Brady's status as a top-flight QB1 hasn't changed.

  • Saquon Barkley - RB - New York Giants
    Posted 8/16/18 7:25am ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (hamstring) is out of practice again Thursday, Aug. 16.

    Huddle Up: Barkley remains an RB1, and he has upside to slot very highly.

  • A.J. Green - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 8/16/18 6:50am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green feels great and says he runs the most of anybody in practice at age 30. 'I ain't an old man,' Green said. 'I've always got juice. I've had it for a long time. I'm not going anywhere any time soon.'

    Huddle Up: Green is a productive receiver, but he hasn't reached 90 catches or 1,300 yards since 2013. His 75-1,078-8 season was good last year, but it's hard to see him improving on that. He's a WR1 in fantasy, but there are more attractive options.

  • Chris Carson - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 8/16/18 6:13am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson is the team's bellcow at running back, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.

    Huddle Up: Rashaad Penny (finger) isn't expected to be out long, if at all, for the regular season. However, it looks like he's a complementary piece, and Carson is the one to target. Carson has some durability concerns of his own, but he's worth snagging as an RB3.

  • Saquon Barkley - RB - New York Giants
    Posted 8/15/18 11:34pm ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Aug. 15, and is not expected to play in the team's preseason game Friday, Aug. 17. The injury is not considered serious, and Barkley is day to day.

    Huddle Up: Barkley tweaked his hammy Monday, and the team is obviously not going to push in any way, shape or form during the preseason. His RB1 outlook for 2018 remains unchanged.

  • Matt Bryant - PK - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 8/15/18 7:48pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant (undisclosed) kicked 15 balls during practice Wednesday, Aug. 15, and will be a game-time decision for the second preseason game, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Bryant should be ready for the start of the regular season and can be a solid fantasy option for owners most weeks.

  • Rashaad Penny - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 8/15/18 6:40pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (finger) possibly might miss 'a game or two' to open up the regular season, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

    Huddle Up: With Penny potentially sidelined for Week 1 and perhaps the following week as well, that means Chris Carson should receive every opportunity to establish himself as the bell cow back in the early going. However, being the club's first-round draft pick this past April, Penny figures to immediately be inserted back into the fold once he returns and will have a regular workload. This shouldn't deter fantasy owners from drafting him.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 8/15/18 4:46pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Martavis Bryant (head) participated in practice Wednesday, Aug. 14, after he missed the previous two practices because of headaches.

    Huddle Up: Bryant has had an up-and-down training camp so far, but it appears like he has a good chance to be the team's No. 3 receiver. Bryant is a big-ply threat because of his speed and could be a No. 4 fantasy receiver if he continues to perform well.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 8/15/18 4:09pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (concussion) is believed to be fine and traveled with the team for their preseason game against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Roethlisberger may not play in any preseason games but should be fine for the start of training camp. He has been a solid fantasy option for the last several seasons and can be considered a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback again this season.

  • Derrius Guice - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 8/15/18 2:50pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) will have surgery Friday, Aug. 17 to repair his torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to a source. Renowned Dr. James Andrews will perform the procedure.

    Huddle Up: Guice is done for the season with a torn ACL, so it will be up to a committee led by Rob Kelley, Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson to fill the void. Kapri Bibbs might also factor in at some point. Each have their strong points in fantasy, with Thompson useful in PPR leagues and as a flex play in standard. Kelley and Perine are more RB3-type options in standard leagues for now, and their value could fluctuate based upon touches.

  • Joe Mixon - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 8/15/18 2:32pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (undisclosed) left practice early Wednesday, Aug. 15, walking off under his own power and without a trainer. He did not return from the locker room.

    Huddle Up: It's uncertain if Mixon suffered an injury, needed a restroom break or was just taken off as a precaution with weather in the area. We'll keep on top of Mixon's absence and let you know the latest when more details emerge.

  • Tyler Lockett - WR - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 8/15/18 12:32pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (undisclosed) went down in practice Wednesday, Aug. 15, but appeared to be OK afterwards.

    Huddle Up: It was not disclosed what Lockett hurt, but the incident was not serious. Lockett possesses sleeper allure as Seattle's No. 2 wide receiver. Injuries have plagued him in his young career, but achieving WR3 status is not out of the question with Russell Wilson at quarterback.

  • Jordan Wilkins - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 8/15/18 12:08pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Jordan Wilkins has emerged as a potential backup, taking advantage of the absence of RB Marlon Mack (hamstring).

    Huddle Up: Mack is expected to be back for the opener, so Wilkins isn't someone to pin your fantasy hopes upon. He is also still jockeying with rookie Nyheim Hines, as well as veterans Christine Michael and Branden Oliver for a meaningful role. Still, he is a name worth filing away if he wins a job on the 53-man roster and Mack goes down again at some point during the season.

  • Ka'imi Fairbairn - PK - Houston Texans
    Posted 8/15/18 11:39am ET

    Houston Texans PK Ka'imi Fairbairn (undisclosed) is nursing an undisclosed injury and might miss the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 18 against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Apparently Fairbairn's injury is considered minor, but they did bring in veteran Giorgio Tavecchio as a camp body. It's uncertain if Tavecchio will be used to just fill in, or if he is a threat to Fairbairn's job. Monitor the situation before drafting a Houston kicker in the final round on draft day.

  • Giorgio Tavecchio - PK - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 8/15/18 11:38am ET

    The Houston Texans worked out free-agent PKs Giorgio Tavecchio (Raiders) and Nick Rose on Wednesday, Aug. 15. Both apparently did well, but Tavecchio is now under consideration to be signed.

    Huddle Up: Tavecchio played for special teams coach Brad Seely in Oakland. Apparently Ka'imi Fairbairn is dealing with some type of short-term injury, so it's unclear if Tavecchio will be given a real shot to replace him or the team simply wants him just for the next preseason game. No fantasy appeal here, at least not yet.

  • Allen Robinson - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 8/15/18 11:32am ET

    Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson (knee) will play sparingly in Week 2 of the preseason, according to head coach Matt Nagy. Robinson did not play in the first preseason game.

    Huddle Up: We'll get our first look at Robinson in his new uniform in a tough test versus Chris Harris and/or Bradley Roby. As long as he doesn't see any setbacks over the next few weeks, he's a prime WR2 as the No. 1 target in an up-and-coming offense.

  • Courtland Sutton - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 8/15/18 10:55am ET

    Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (ankle) twisted his ankle running a route in practice Wednesday, Aug. 15. He did walk off the field on his own power.

    Huddle Up: No need to panic for the impressive rookie. Sutton has already made an impression with his performance during training camp. He's the Broncos' No. 3 wide receiver and will have WR2 to WR3 upside if either Demaryius Thomas or Emmanuel Sanders are injured.

  • Cameron Meredith - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 8/15/18 10:25am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (undisclosed) returned to practice Wednesday, Aug. 15, but did not participate in team drills.

    Huddle Up: It's unclear what has been bothering Meredith, but it doesn't seem to be serious since he was on the practice field today. Monitor his status, but he has WR3 upside in one of the best passing offenses in the NFL.

  • Jeremy McNichols - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 8/15/18 9:32am ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Jeremy McNichols is running with the first-team Wednesday, Aug. 15.

    Huddle Up: He's still behind injured Jerick McKinnon (knee) and Matt Breida (shoulder), but he appears entrenched at No. 3. If the aforementioned injuries linger, McNichols could be a good stash option.
