Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/19/18 11:44pm ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (elbow) is still experiencing tingling in two of his fingers, which is the result of an injured nerve in his elbow. Mariota is currently experimenting with wearing a glove to improve his grip on the football.

    Huddle Up: The fact that Mariota is still having tingling in his fingers a week-plus after the injury is concerning, and with a hard-nosed Jaguars defense on the docket for Sunday it makes sense for Mariota to stay on the bench, at least for fantasy purposes.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/19/18 7:47pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (knee) said his knee is not 100 percent at this point and is worried that he may make the injury worse if he plays on the knee.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers probably will not practice much while he is dealing with the injury but should be able to play in Week 3. He should still be considered a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in all leagues as long as he is active for the game.

  • Doug Baldwin - WR - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/19/18 5:21pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: Baldwin probably will not play in Week 3 if he does not practice this week. Owners in all leagues should keep him on the bench and look for other options to use in their lineups.

  • Russell Wilson - QB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/19/18 5:21pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (hamstring) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: Wilson has thrown for five touchdowns and three interceptions in the first two games and has rushed for only 22 yards during that time. He can still be considered a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback this week against the Dallas Cowboys.

  • Travis Benjamin - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/19/18 4:14pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (foot) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin didn't play in last week's contest but since he was able to get in a limited practice to start off the new week, it would seem he's much closer to returning to action. If he indeed is active on Sunday, both Mike Williams and Tyrell Williams would take a hit, but Benjamin isn't a recommended option for most formats.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/19/18 4:07pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (neck) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: Gordon sustained the injury late last week but based on his participation in the first practice ahead of Week 3, he should be perfectly fine for the next contest. The 2015 first-round draft pick is out to a nice start and will be an RB1, as usual.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/19/18 4:05pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: Lynch probably is receiving a rest early in the week and should be fine for Week 3. He has rushed for 106 yards and two touchdowns during the first two games and could be a flex option in standard leagues.

  • Marquise Goodwin - WR - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 9/19/18 4:01pm ET

    Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin (quadriceps) was officially limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: Goodwin missed the Week 2 game but appears to have a chance to play this week. He would have a favorable matchup if he plays and can be a No. 3 receiver in most leagues.

  • Will Fuller - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 9/19/18 3:37pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: Fuller has been dealing with a hamstring issue lately but it didn't seem to affect him in last week's contest, when he scorched Tennessee for 113 yards on nine grabs and a score. He's an above-average WR3 as long as quarterback Deshaun Watson continues to return to his rookie form.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 9/19/18 3:28pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle, thumb) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy owners of Hopkins shouldn't be concerned, as the former Clemson product made it through three limited practice sessions only a week ago before torching the Titans to the tune of six catches for 110 yards and a score. As always, he remains a strong WR1 option.

  • Jack Doyle - TE - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/19/18 3:28pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (hip) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: Doyle has been a reliable target for Andrew Luck over the last few years but has only 80 yards over the first two games. Owners should keep an eye on his situation but could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end if he plays.

  • T.Y. Hilton - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/19/18 3:24pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quadriceps) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: Hilton may be receiving a day off to rest his quadriceps, but owners will need to monitor the situation. He has posted a touchdown in each of his first two games and can be a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in all leagues this week.

  • Marlon Mack - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/19/18 3:23pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (foot, hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check on Mack's status later in the week to see if he will be able to play. He received 11 touches in the Week 2 game and posted only 36 yards during the game. He will be facing a solid Philadelphia Eagles defense this week and may only be a flex option.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/19/18 3:12pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: Eifert has recorded five passes for 67 yards over the first two games of the season but could receive a bigger role as the season goes on. He probably should be owned in most leagues but can be benched if owners have better options available.

  • Aaron Jones - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/19/18 2:45pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones was activated from his two-game suspension Wednesday, Sept. 19. CB Deante Burton was released in a corresponding move.

    Huddle Up: As stated previously, Jones won't immediately start upon his return. Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery will be playing ahead of him, so Jones will need to earn his way back. Keep him stashed on your bench this week.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/19/18 2:33pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) was unable to practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: Jones was likely just getting a veteran's mid-week day off to rest his bumps and bruises. We'll get a better idea if Jones is nursing a real injury or not on the reports Thursday and Friday. He'll likely be ready to go for Week 3 against the Saints.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/19/18 2:32pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: It's not unexpected, as Freeman missed Week 2 and is listed as day to day. Circle back around later in the week for a better idea if he'll play Week 3 against the Saints or not. Tevin Coleman would again shoulder the bulk of the workload with Ito Smith as the backup if Freeman cannot go.

  • Alshon Jeffery - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/19/18 2:23pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: It's unfortunate that Jeffery is not healthy yet as he and the Eagles boast one of the better matchups of the week in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He'll be a risky start even if he is active. Nelson Agholor, however, is a recommended play.

  • Carson Wentz - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/19/18 2:19pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) logged a full practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: It will be interesting to see how much Wentz does in his return from a torn ACL. A matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is a good one to ease him into. The Eagles have taken it easy with the franchise quarterback as he has progressed, so feel free to start him in his 2018 debut.

  • Sony Michel - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/19/18 2:12pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: Michel was able to make his NFL debut in Week 2 after missing the opener, and he did well catching some passes out of the backfield. That might be where he is able to contribute the most. Fantasy owners in PPR formats will want to target him as a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option, while he has lesser value in standard play.
