Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Ryan Tannehill - QB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 10/17/18 11:20pm ET

    Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) is unlikely to be ready to play in Week 8, according to ESPN's Cameron Wolfe. Tannehill has already been ruled out for Week 7, and the Dolphins' Week 8 game is on Thursday, Oct. 25.

    Huddle Up: This news isn't unexpected given the short turnaround between Weeks 7 and 8, so get ready for two more games of Brock Osweiler. He did well against Chicago, but history suggest Osweiler's success will be short lived. He can be safely ignored unless you're desperate at the position.

  • Alfred Morris - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 10/17/18 10:43pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan indicated that RB Raheem Mostert seeing time ahead of RB Alfred Morris was not a permanent switch and instead related to what they felt was the best matchup against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Considering Mostert rushed 12 times for 87 yards it's fair to say that Shanahan was right about the matchup, but this isn't the sort of thing you want to hear if you scrambled to pick up Mostert (or dropped Morris) in the wake of Monday's performance. If it's not too late, it's probably best to take a wait and see approach with all of this.

  • Marquise Goodwin - WR - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 10/17/18 5:06pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin (hamstring, quadriceps) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Goodwin is coming off a fantastic Week 6 performance but may have to line up against Marcus Peters this week. He can still be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in some leagues but is a risky option because of the matchup.

  • George Kittle - TE - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 10/17/18 5:05pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Kittle was able to play last week despite the injury but was held to 30 yards on four catches. He probably will be able to play this week but will only be a low-end No. 1 tight end in leagues.

  • Matt Breida - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 10/17/18 4:55pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle, shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Breida should be able to play this week as long as he does not suffer a setback. He rushed for 61 yards and one touchdown in his last game but will be facing a tough Los Angeles Rams defense this week. Owners can consider Breida a No. 2 running back or a flex option despite the matchup.

  • Darren Sproles - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 10/17/18 4:43pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (hamstring) remained sidelined at practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Sproles hasn't played since the season opener and based on his lack of practice Wednesday, it looks like he's about to miss another game. Even if the veteran returns in Week 7, he shouldn't be in any starting lineups anyway.

  • Carson Wentz - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 10/17/18 4:42pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (back) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: This appears to be a new issue for Wentz, though it won't affect his availability for Sunday. With multiple touchdown passes in his last three games, he'll be a lower-end QB1 in this week's matchup.

  • Pierre Garcon - WR - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 10/17/18 4:35pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (knee, shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Garcon was able to play in the Week 6 game but only posted 37 yards in the game. Owners will know more about his status later in the week but probably can bench him even if he is active for the game.

  • Greg Zuerlein - PK - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 10/17/18 4:31pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams PK Greg Zuerlein (groin) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Zuerlein appears to be on track to play in Week 7 as long as he does not suffer any setbacks. He should be a weekly starting option when he is healthy.

  • Theo Riddick - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 10/17/18 4:16pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: It's definitely a concern that straight out of the bye week, Riddick wasn't able to practice, but it could also be the team managing the veteran's reps. Obviously, his owners will have to be on top of his status throughout the week as a result of this development, but he's only a FLEX play in deep leagues anyway.

  • Cameron Meredith - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 10/17/18 4:12pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Meredith caught five passes for 71 yards in his last game and could have a bigger role if Ted Ginn Jr. is not able to play. He will have a tough matchup in Week 7 but could be a flex option in some leagues.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 10/17/18 4:02pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Owners should know more about Ginn's status later in the week. He has posted decent numbers so far this season, He would be facing a tough Baltimore Ravens defense if he plays and could be benched because of his uncertain status.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 10/17/18 3:57pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski is playing better after a few quiet weeks but still has only one touchdown this season. He should be considered a No. 1 tight end every week as long as he is healthy.

  • Allen Robinson - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 10/17/18 3:38pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Robinson showed no hints of an injury last weekend in Miami, where he managed to find the end zone for the second straight week while hauling in five catches for 64 yards. He'll be probably be fine for Week 7, but of course, owners should check up on his status throughout the week.

  • Josh Gordon - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 10/17/18 3:34pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Gordon was targeted nine times in the last game and appears to be on track for a bigger role in the passing game. He can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues with the chance to be more valuable as the season goes on.

  • Sony Michel - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 10/17/18 3:27pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Michel appears to be the main option in the running game and has rushed for at least 95 yards in each of the last three games. He can be considered a No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues this week.

  • Paul Richardson - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/17/18 3:24pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee) was unable to practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Richardson has found the end zone in two of his past three outings, and he has seven grabs with 81 yards and 10 targets over the past two games. He is worth a look as a low-end WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams as long as he is healthy. It appears he is getting more comfortable in his new surroundings after a slow start.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/17/18 3:21pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle, shoulder) did not practice on Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: While nothing is official, this was likely more of a veteran's rest day to give him bumps and bruises an extra day to heal. Peterson is likely to be ready for the Week 7 game against the Dallas Cowboys, and he is a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option in most leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Josh Doctson - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/17/18 3:19pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (heel) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Doctson appears to be in good shape for the Week 7 game against the Dallas Cowboys, but double-check his status Friday before setting your lineup. When healthy he is a WR5 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Jamison Crowder - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/17/18 3:17pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Crowder is expected to miss practice time and he is a question mark for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Check back Friday for his official injury designation. The slot receiver is a risky fantasy play for Week 7 at this point.
