Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Mike Davis - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 11/20/17 8:36pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Mike Davis (groin) had to leave the team's Week 11 game Monday, Nov. 20, against the Atlanta Falcons and will not return.

    Huddle Up: Tough break for the former practice squad player, as Davis actually got the start in this one and was decent, totaling 59 yards on the ground and through the air before having to exit. J.D. McKissic and Eddie Lacy each receive a boost while he is sidelined, especially with Thomas Rawls out as a healthy scratch.

  • Travis Benjamin - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 11/20/17 8:23pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (abdomen) was a limited participant in practice Monday, Nov. 20.

    Huddle Up: After exiting Sunday's blowout win over the Bills, Benjamin may have put himself in position to return to action on Thanksgiving by at least getting in a limited practice the following day. Either way, he's such a volatile player to deploy in fantasy that he should really only be considered as an option for the most desperate owners in deeper leagues.

  • Dan Bailey - PK - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 11/20/17 5:46pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys PK Dan Bailey (groin) was limited during the team's walkthrough Monday, Nov. 20.

    Huddle Up: Bailey appears to have a chance to play and may be a game-time decision. He will be a risky fantasy option this week, so owners may want to use another option this week and avoid Bailey because of his uncertain status.

  • Robert Woods - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 11/20/17 5:16pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods (shoulder) will miss a few weeks because of his shoulder injury, according to head coach Sean McVay.

    Huddle Up: Cooper Kupp, Tavon Austin and Pharoh Cooper are options to receive more targets while Woods is sidelined. Kupp is probably the best option among the receivers and can be a flex option in most leagues. Austin and Cooper are not great fantasy options at this point.

  • Greg Olsen - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 11/20/17 3:39pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) said he expects to play against the New York Jets as long as he does not suffer a setback during practice this week.

    Huddle Up: Olsen has miss most of the season because of his foot injury but is one of the better tight ends in the NFL when he is healthy. He can be a starting option in all fantasy leagues this week, but owners may want to lower their expectations a bit.

  • Dan Bailey - PK - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 11/20/17 2:23pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys PK Dan Bailey (groin) hopes he'll be able to return to action Thursday, Nov. 23, against the Los Angeles Chargers. If he is not back this week then he expects to take the field next week after what will have been a five-game absence.

    Huddle Up: Don't count on Bailey returning on a short week after missing four games. He's one of the best in the business when he's healthy, but it's best to have a backup plan ready.

  • Vernon Davis - TE - Washington Redskins
    Posted 11/20/17 1:53pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Vernon Davis (back) fully participated in practice Monday, Nov. 20.

    Huddle Up: Davis has been targeted 26 times over the last three games and has at least 67 yards in each of those games. He will continue to have a big role in the passing game and can be a No. 1 fantasy tight end.

  • Ryan Grant - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 11/20/17 1:48pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Ryan Grant (calf) was limited during practice Monday, Nov. 20.

    Huddle Up: Grant had a solid outing in Week 11 and should have a solid role in the passing game against the New York Giants if he is able to play. He could be a flex option in some deeper leagues, but owners probably can find better options to use in their lineups.

  • Samaje Perine - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 11/20/17 1:42pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (finger) was limited during practice Monday, Nov. 20.

    Huddle Up: Perine should be able to play this week and will receive most of the work at running back because of the injury to Chris Thompson. He can be considered a No. 2 running back in most leagues in Week 12.

  • Sterling Shepard - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 11/20/17 1:42pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (illness) was absent from practice Monday, Nov. 20.

    Huddle Up: Unfortunately for Shepard he has just three more days to be ready for Thursday night's contest after missing Week 11. His status will need to be monitored, but Shepard has WR2 appeal as the Giants' No. 1 receiving option if he's active.

  • Orleans Darkwa - RB - New York Giants
    Posted 11/20/17 1:38pm ET

    New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa (hamstring) was limited in practice Monday, Nov. 20.

    Huddle Up: Darkwa has strung some solid games together since taking over New York's lead backfield role. The Giants do have a short week as they play Thursday night, but Darkwa should be able to take the field barring any setbacks and remains an RB2 option going forward.

  • Jordan Reed - TE - Washington Redskins
    Posted 11/20/17 1:35pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) did not participate in practice Monday, Nov. 20.

    Huddle Up: Reed probably will miss another week since the Redskins play on Thanksgiving. Vernon Davis will continue to be the starting tight end while Reed is sidelined and can be considered a No. 1 fantasy tight end this week against the New York Giants.

  • Jacoby Brissett - QB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 11/20/17 1:19pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett (concussion) is still going through the concussion protocol, but head coach Chuck Pagano said he believes Brissett should be able to play in Week 12. He received most of the snaps during the team's workout Monday, Nov. 20.

    Huddle Up: Owners should check on Brissett's status later in the week to see if he suffered a setback at any point. Brissett has played well since taking over as the starting quarterback and has six touchdowns in the last three games. He could be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues if he plays.

  • Carson Palmer - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 11/20/17 1:19pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (arm) recently had his cast removed from his injured arm, according to head coach Bruce Arians. It has already been said that Palmer could return later this season.

    Huddle Up: The Cardinals could certainly use Palmer back in their huddle, although Blaine Gabbert held his own last week. It may be worth holding on to Palmer for the fantasy playoffs. He'll have a favorable matchup in Week 16 versus the New York Giants if he returns by then.

  • Will Fuller - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 11/20/17 1:05pm ET

    Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said he is not sure if WR Will Fuller (ribs) will be able to play in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Fuller will have an extra day to recover since the Texans play on Monday Night Football. Owners will need to keep an eye on his practice participation during the week to have a better idea of his status. Owners may want to keep Fuller on the bench since there would be limited options if he does not play.

  • Alfred Blue - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 11/20/17 12:40pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue (hamstring) is expected to be available to play in Week 12, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

    Huddle Up: Blue likely will be the No. 2 running back with D'Onta Foreman out for an extended period of time. He should see a handful of touches during games but can be avoided in most leagues.

  • Drew Stanton - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 11/20/17 11:28am ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Blaine Gabbert will remain the starter at least until QB Drew Stanton (knee) is back at full health, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

    Huddle Up: Gabbert was a pleasant fantasy surprise in his first start of the season last week, although he did throw two interceptions. Unfortunately, Gabbert and the Cardinals face the Jacksonville Jaguars next week. Do not start Blaine Gabbert.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 11/20/17 11:14am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Terrelle Pryor (ankle) is having surgery on his ankle Monday, Nov. 20, according to a source. A timetable for his recovery is not yet known.

    Huddle Up: It remains to be seen if Pryor's season is mercifully at an end. Either way, he can be safely dropped in all formats.

  • Cairo Santos - PK - Free Agent
    Posted 11/20/17 9:52am ET

    Free-agent PK Cairo Santos (Chiefs) will sign with the Chicago Bears Monday, Nov. 20.

    Huddle Up: Santos dealt with a groin injury for much of the season, but he was worth owning when healthy. The Bears' offense may not provide the opportunities he had in KC, but if you're in the market for a kicker, he should be serviceable.

  • Carson Wentz - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 11/20/17 9:37am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (head) was evaluated for a concussion late in the first quarter Sunday, Nov. 19.

    Huddle Up: He clearly passed the tests, though he wasn't sharp with a 14-for-27 effort for 168 yards and two scores. He'll remain a QB1 option against the Chicago Bears next week.
