Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Alex Smith - QB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 12/11/17 2:43pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has thrown 11 touchdowns and zero interceptions on passes that are at least 20 yards past the line of scrimmage. He had thrown 12 touchdowns and eight interceptions on such passes in the previous six years combined.

    Huddle Up: Smith is easily having the best passing season of his career. He has shed his reputation as being shy on throwing deep passes, thanks in large part to speed demon and deep threat Tyreek Hill. Smith remains a starting fantasy quarterback for the last few weeks of the season.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 12/11/17 1:54pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) underwent tests and scans on his collarbone, but head coach Mike McCarthy said there is no clear decision on his status at this point. Rodgers is still being evaluated by team doctors.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor Rodgers' practice participation during the week to have a better idea of his status for Week 15. He would be facing a tough Carolina Panthers defense if he plays but can be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in all leagues.

  • Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 12/11/17 1:12pm ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (knee) may be limited in practice this week with his knee injury, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.

    Huddle Up: Mariota has been one of the biggest disappointments of the 2017 fantasy season. Of course, not being at 100% may be partly to blame for that. On the year he is the QB18 and is a risky start going forward no matter the matchup.

  • Bryce Petty - QB - New York Jets
    Posted 12/11/17 1:11pm ET

    New York Jets QB Bryce Petty will be the starting quarterback against the New Orleans Saints in Week 15. QB Christian Hackenberg will serve as the No. 2 quarterback.

    Huddle Up: Petty struggled in the limited playing time he received in Week 15 and may not be asked to throw much in Week 15. Owners in all leagues should avoid the Jets quarterback situation. The quarterback change likely will hurt the fantasy value of Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse as well.

  • Eli Manning - QB - New York Giants
    Posted 12/11/17 12:33pm ET

    New York Giants QB Eli Manning will remain the starting quarterback at least for one more week, according to interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo.

    Huddle Up: Manning could definitely finish out the year as the starter unless Spags and the coaching staff want to throw Davis Webb to the wolves before the season concludes. Manning has not been a reliable quarterback all year and certainly can't be trusted in the fantasy playoffs.

  • Deonte Thompson - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/11/17 12:18pm ET

    Huddle Up: Both Thomposon and Jones could see plenty of snaps over the final three games with Benjamin nursing a knee injury. Truth be told, none of Buffalo's wide receivers are viable starters in the fantasy playoffs, especially with Nathan Peterman starting.

  • Josh McCown - QB - New York Jets
    Posted 12/11/17 12:10pm ET

    New York Jets QB Josh McCown (hand) is done for the season and will have surgery to fix his broken left hand, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

    Huddle Up: Bryce Petty should finish the season out as the starter, but Christian Hackenberg could also be given some repetitions if the Jets want to further evaluate the position heading into the offseason. Neither player deserves fantasy attention.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/11/17 10:22am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is 'still being evaluated' in regards to the right knee injury he aggravated in Week 14 against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin just returned from a torn meniscus on the same knee, so he's looking pretty unlikely for the Miami Dolphins in Week 15. Prior to his departure, he managed three catches for 38 yards and a touchdown in the blizzard-like conditions in Buffalo, displaying some of the high-point ability that made him so attractive to Buffalo in the first place. If Benjamin is ruled out for Week 15 but can play in Week 16, he'd be in the WR3 conversation against the New England Patriots.

  • Nick Foles - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 12/11/17 9:15am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles has a good matchup against the New York Giants in Week 15 after QB Carson Wentz (knee) was lost for the season.

    Huddle Up: The Giants are in the bottom 10 at defending the position on the season and over the last five weeks. Foles could be a sneaky one-week play in this matchup.

  • Carson Wentz - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 12/11/17 9:15am ET

    Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament after an MRI Monday, Dec. 11, confirmed the injury.

    Huddle Up: Nick Foles takes over at quarterback, and Alshon Jeffery figures to take a hit. Zach Ertz's value pops more with Foles under center as a checkdown option. Jay Ajayi also receives a boost as a checkdown option. As for Foles, he could be considered as a matchup play in Week 15 against the New York Giants if greener pastures aren't available.

  • Chris Hogan - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/11/17 8:44am ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) will play Monday, Dec. 11, after missing four games with a shoulder injury, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Hogan is a flex option against the Miami Dolphins if you have yet to fill that slot.

  • Tom Savage - QB - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/11/17 7:35am ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (concussion) is unlikely to start in Week 15, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

    Huddle Up: T.J. Yates is not worth the start in fantasy against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

  • T.J. Yates - QB - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/11/17 7:33am ET

    Houston Texans QB T.J. Yates is likely to start in Week 15 in place of QB Tom Savage (concussion), according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

    Huddle Up: Yates was good in relief, but he's not worth using against a tough Jacksonville Jaguars defense next week.

  • Alex Collins - RB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 12/11/17 5:57am ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Alex Collins rushed 18 times for 120 yards and a touchdown Sunday, Dec. 10, against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also had two catches for 46 yards.

    Huddle Up: Collins reached a career-high with those 120 yards, and he has scored five times in the last four weeks. He'll have another promising matchup against the Cleveland Browns next week, and Collins is a very good RB2 and could creep into the RB1 territory.

  • Jesse James - TE - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 12/11/17 5:56am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James had 10 catches for 95 yards Sunday, Dec. 10, against the Baltimore Ravens.

    Huddle Up: James has had some booms and some busts this season, and this was one of the boomer games. A tough matchup against the New England Patriots could bring him back to reality as fringe TE1.

  • Mike Davis - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 12/11/17 5:41am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Mike Davis (ribs) rushed 15 times for 66 yards and had a catch for minus-1 yard Sunday, Dec. 10, against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He left the game briefly with a ribs injury but returned.

    Huddle Up: Davis has clearly become the guy in the backfield and will be a flex option against the Los Angeles Rams next week.

  • Paul Richardson - WR - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 12/11/17 5:34am ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson had three catches for 72 yards and a touchdown against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, Dec. 10.

    Huddle Up: He also led the team with seven targets, which might have contributed to Jimmy Graham only being looked at twice. Richardson is far too inconsistent to use against the Los Angeles Rams next week except as a weak flex play.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 12/11/17 5:30am ET

    Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham didn't record a catch on two targets Sunday, Dec. 10, against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: He had scored touchdowns in seven of nine games before the goose egg. He'll have another tough matchup against the Los Angeles Rams next week. Graham is still an upper-tier option at the position.

  • Russell Wilson - QB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 12/11/17 5:28am ET

    Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was 17-for-31 for 271 yards, three touchdown and three interceptions in their loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, Dec. 10. He also rushed five times for 50 yards.

    Huddle Up: The three picks aren't pretty, but it was a pretty solid fantasy day for him against one of the better pass rushes. He'll have another tough matchup against the Los Angeles Rams next week as a QB1.

  • Blake Bortles - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 12/11/17 5:23am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles was 18-for-27 for 268 yards and two touchdowns against the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, Dec. 10.

    Huddle Up: It's the second game in a row he has avoided throwing an interception. He'll have a solid matchup against the Houston Texans next week and could be a viable injury replacement.
