Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Josh Rosen - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 10/19/18 5:03am ET

    Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen (toe) suffered a left toe injury in the Week 7 game Thursday, Oct. 18. Head coach Steve Wilks acknowledged that, looking back at the situation and with the game already lopsided, Rosen shouldn't have been playing.

    Huddle Up: Rosen had a rough game with three early interceptions, and two of them went to the house. He's merely dynasty league stash material for now.

  • Royce Freeman - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/19/18 4:53am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ankle) suffered a sprained ankle in the Week 7 game Thursday, Oct. 18, and could miss some time.

    Huddle Up: That could be an opening for Phillip Lindsay, who had a 14-90-1 line last night. He could become a midrange RB2. Devontae Booker could resurface in fantasy circles, but it really feels like he has been given his fill of chances to no avail. He's depth in fantasy only.

  • Emmanuel Sanders - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/18/18 11:17pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the game on Thursday, Oct. 18, and did not return. He'll be evaluated by the team's training staff on Friday, Oct. 19, but Sanders said after the game that he 'should be fine' and 'probably could've finished the game.'

    Huddle Up: Sanders is the man in Denver's passing attack right now so any absence would be painful for the Broncos and fantasy owners alike. It sounds like he avoided anything serious, but keep an eye out for an official update.

  • Royce Freeman - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/18/18 11:12pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ankle) sustained a high ankle sprain during the team's victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: That's the type of injury that tends to linger, and Freeman was seen with a slight limp after the game, so this is something you'll want to stay on top of. The Broncos don't play again until Sunday, Oct. 28, so there should be plenty of time for the situation to clarify between now and then.

  • Chad Williams - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 10/18/18 10:10pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Chad Williams was targeted eight times against the Denver Broncos on Thursday, Oct. 18. He caught four passes for 34 yards.

    Huddle Up: Williams' eight targets were both tied for the team lead and a career high. He's been a bit more involved recently, and the former third-round pick could be added to watch lists in larger leagues.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 10/18/18 9:58pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald was targeted eight times, catching four passes for 40 yards and a touchdown during the the team's Week 7 loss to the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: It took seven games, but the future Hall of Famer finally scored a TD. Although it's a step in the right direction for the veteran, whose eight targets were tied for the team lead, it's still difficult to advocate putting Fitzgerald in your starting lineup unless you're really up against it.

  • Christian Kirk - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 10/18/18 9:51pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk caught three passes for 57 yards against the Denver Broncos in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: This was a step back for Kirk after topping 75 yards in three of his previous four games, but the offense as a whole sputtered, and Kirk's 57 yards were 17 more than anyone else. While you'll need to pick your spots with Kirk, he's definitely worth owning.

  • David Johnson - RB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 10/18/18 9:27pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson carried the ball 14 times for 39 yards and added 31 yards on three receptions during the team's blowout loss to the Denver Broncos on Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: While the yardage was on brand for Johnson in recent weeks, this was the first time since Week 2 that he was kept out of the end zone. It's a bleak time in the desert, but Johnson has done enough to hold RB2 value going forward.

  • Josh Rosen - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 10/18/18 9:20pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen (foot) appeared to injure his foot late in the team's Week 7 loss to the Denver Broncos. Rosen said he was 'fine' during his post-game press conference while head coach Steve Wilks indicated he's waiting for an evaluation.

    Huddle Up: Rosen said he's alright, so it looks like he might've escaped the old "insult to injury" thing (or, in this case, injury to insult). Either way, Rosen's value at this stage lies exclusively in dynasty leagues.

  • Josh Rosen - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 10/18/18 8:55pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen completed 21 of his 39 passes for 194 yards, a touchdown and three interceptions in a 45-10 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 7. He was also sacked six times and lost two fumbles.

    Huddle Up: The Cardinals are just a bad football team, and Rosen's struggles seem to be growing. He's only worth considering in dynasty formats.

  • Demaryius Thomas - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/18/18 8:46pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas caught five of his six targets for 42 yards in a 45-10 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Case Keenum seems to prefer Emmanuel Sanders as his go-to option, and it has resulted in several mediocre outings for Thomas. He has had at least five catches in five of the seven games, but without many big plays, Thomas is a low-end WR3 at this point.

  • Royce Freeman - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/18/18 8:38pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman rushed 13 times for 37 yards and a touchdown in a 45-10 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Freeman didn't have the most efficient night running the ball, but he scored for the fourth time this year. Phillip Lindsay has been the better back, but Freeman will continue to be a worthwhile flex play because of touchdown potential.

  • Phillip Lindsay - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/18/18 8:34pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay rushed 14 times for 90 yards and a touchdown and caught one pass for six yards in a 45-10 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Lindsay only received one more carry than Royce Freeman, but he was far more effective. He has seen around 15 touches per game the last few weeks and is excellent flex option with RB2 upside.

  • Emmanuel Sanders - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/18/18 8:28pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders caught six of seven targets for 102 yards and a touchdown and also threw a 28-yard touchdown pass in a 45-10 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Sanders has emerged as the go-to option in the Denver passing attack, and he recorded his third 100-yard effort of the year in Week 7 and fifth game with more than 70 receiving yards. He's a borderline WR1 at this point.

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

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski said he isn't frustrated by his lack of targets in the red zone this year, and he's 'totally satisfied' as long as the team wins.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski only has one touchdown this year, but he has had at least 75 receiving yards in three of the six games and is on pace to top 1,000 yards. The touchdowns will likely come sooner rather than later, but Gronkowski is a TE1 on his yardage alone.

  • Saquon Barkley - RB - New York Giants
    Posted 10/18/18 7:29pm ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley is 'just scratching the surface of his talent,' according to QB Eli Manning.

    Huddle Up: Barkley has been one of the few bright spot for the 1-5 Giants, and he is on pace for more than 2,000 total yards and more than 100 catches. As crazy as it sounds, his numbers could actually improve if the passing attack can ever find a rhythm.

  • Jordan Reed - TE - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/18/18 6:51pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed needs the ball more, according to head coach Jay Gruden, and Gruden plans on using three-tight end sets on occasion to create mismatches for Reed. 'We'll have a limited package every week, but love the formations, love the way we can attack defenses a lot of different ways,' Gruden said.

    Huddle Up: Reed is off to a slow start, but he was targeted a team-high nine times in Week 6. He's also managed to remain healthy, and as thin as the tight end position is, Reed is still a fantasy starter in all formats.

  • George Kittle - TE - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 10/18/18 5:16pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (knee) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Despite battling this knee issue going into this past Monday night's matchup at Lambeau Field, Kittle was able to play and logged his fourth-straight game with at least four catches. He's become an established lower-end TE1, even with C.J. Beathard throwing him the football.

  • Pierre Garcon - WR - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 10/18/18 5:14pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (knee, shoulder) got in a limited practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Garcon missed practice on Wednesday but it looks like he'll be fine for Week 7 against the Rams. However, he simply hasn't been as productive this year as he normally is, and with backup QB C.J. Beathard under center, that trend may continue. He's more of a WR4 at the moment.

  • Matt Breida - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 10/18/18 5:12pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle, shoulder) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Breida played through injury in the team's high-scoring loss to Green Bay on Monday night, but his status still needs to be monitored, seeing as how he almost didn't play in that game. He's turned into an acceptable RB2 this year and will have that potential opposite the Rams if he plays.
