Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Aaron Jones - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 11/24/17 2:12pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) missed practice for the third straight day Friday, Nov. 24, and he has been ruled out for the team's Week 12 game Sunday, Nov. 26, versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: With Jones out and Ty Montgomery (ribs) also unlikely to play, Jamaal Williams will be worth looking at it in all leagues. He's registered more than 20 carries in each of his last two games, but with a matchup on tap in Pittsburgh, there's a good chance the Packers could be getting blown out for the majority of the night and then have to pass to catch up. Owners might want to pass on Green Bay's running game situation as a result.

  • Ty Montgomery - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 11/24/17 2:06pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) missed practice for the third straight day Friday, Nov. 24, and he is being considered doubtful to play in the team's Week 12 game Sunday, Nov. 26, against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Montgomery missed Week 11, and considering he hasn't practiced all week, it seems like there's no chance he plays on Sunday night. Aaron Jones (knee) is also set to miss this week's contest, so Jamaal Williams will be the guy to own from Green Bay's backfield, but that's more volume-based than anything else. He's logged more than 20 carries in each of his last two games.

  • Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 11/24/17 1:59pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (thumb) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 24, and is not on the injury report for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Newton is coming off one of his best performances in Week 10 and will have Greg Olsen back this week. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback this week against the New York Jets.

  • Vance McDonald - TE - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 11/24/17 1:55pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald (ankle) did not practice again Friday, Nov. 24, and he has been ruled out for the team's Week 12 game Sunday, Nov. 26, versus the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: This will be the second game in a row that McDonald is on the sidelines. As a result, Jesse James becomes an acceptable TE1 streaming option this week. With McDonald out last week, the former Penn State product hauled in his first touchdown since Week 1, while also tallying his most receptions since the opening week as well. There could be some nice value here.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/24/17 1:51pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (illness) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 24, but is not on the injury report for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski should have a big role in the passing game this week and is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

  • Tom Brady - QB - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/24/17 1:42pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (Achilles') was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 24, but is not on the injury report for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Brady is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL and is a must-start fantasy option no matter the opponent.

  • Danny Amendola - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/24/17 1:39pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Amendola should be on the field this week despite the questionable tag and probably will receive a decent amount of targets during the game. He can be considered a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Martellus Bennett - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/24/17 1:37pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (hamstring, shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 24, and is listed as doubtful for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Bennett has been dealing with injuries for the last several weeks and could receive at least one week off. Owners in all leagues should avoid Bennett even if he plays.

  • Chris Hogan - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/24/17 1:28pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 24, and has been ruled out for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: It is not known when Hogan will be able to return to the lineup, so owners should monitor the situation. Danny Amendola could receive some more targets with Hogan sidelined and can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Jake Elliott - PK - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 11/24/17 1:05pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles PK Jake Elliott (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 24, and is not on the injury report for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Elliott plays for one of the best teams in the NFL and should have several opportunities to put points on the board. He should be a starting option in all leagues.

  • Robby Anderson - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 11/24/17 12:51pm ET

    New York Jets WR Robby Anderson (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 24, and is not on the injury report for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Anderson has been the team's top receiver this season and should receive a solid amount of targets in Week 12. He should be at least a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Matt Forte - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 11/24/17 12:46pm ET

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Forte may have a chance to play in Week 12 since he was on the field for some drills Friday, but owners will need to check the inactive list. He has played well over the last few weeks but would be a risky option if he is active this week. He could be a flex option in some deeper leagues.

  • Steven Hauschka - PK - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 11/24/17 12:36pm ET

    Buffalo Bills PK Stephen Hauschka (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 24, and is not on the injury report for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Hauschka has posted solid numbers this season, but owners in most leagues should be able to find better options for their lineups.

  • Jordan Matthews - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 11/24/17 12:20pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Matthews did not play last week because of the injury, so owners will need to check the inactive list to see if he will play. He has not been a big factor in the passing game this season and probably can be avoided even if he plays.

  • Charles Clay - TE - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 11/24/17 12:10pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Clay will be able to play in Week 12. He has been held to only 40 yards in the last two games combined and probably can be avoided in most leagues.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 11/24/17 12:09pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin probably will be a game-time decision this week, so owners will need to check the inactive list. Owners may want to use other options in their lineups since Benjamin could be limited if he is active for the game.

  • Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 11/24/17 11:27am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) is absent from the team's Week 12 injury report despite practicing in limited fashion all week.

    Huddle Up: Since carrying fantasy owners for the first six weeks of the season, Fournette hasn't been nearly as dominant since. Some of that can be attributed to circumstance - he missed one game due to injury, another due to a one-game suspension and had a bye week mixed in there as well - but some of it can also be blamed on the ankle injury he said last week could bother him the rest of the season. Nevertheless, due to workload and talent, he remains a RB1 in fantasy.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/24/17 11:09am ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (illness) told reporters Friday, Nov. 24, he will be ready to play in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski is coming off a disappointing fantasy effort in Week 11 against the Oakland Raiders, but he'll get another opportunity to remind owners why he's considered the best tight end in the game in another plus-matchup. He remains an elite TE1 play in all formats.

  • Danny Woodhead - RB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 11/24/17 10:52am ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Danny Woodhead will not be on a snap count in Week 12 against the Houston Texans, according to offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg. Woodhead was limited to 13 snaps in Week 11 in his return from the Reserve/Injured list with a hamstring injury in part due to the big lead Baltimore enjoyed.

    Huddle Up: Woodhead makes for an interesting flex option in PPR leagues this week in that Houston's run defense has been among the best in the league. While Alex Collins is getting more work in the passing game than he was earlier in the season, Woodhead is about as good as it gets in that part of the game among running backs in the league. Owners scrambling from the loss of a player such as Chris Thompson could potentially get similar production from Woodhead moving forward.

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 11/24/17 10:28am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) will not play in Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers due to a hamstring injury.

    Huddle Up: This news pretty much locks Antonio Brown into a double-digit target game - he was probably headed there already - and should leave a bit more work for Le'Veon Bell as both a runner and a receiver. The news probably affects Martavis Bryant the most, as he will get one more shot to be relevant in fantasy this year in a plus-matchup. Given his inconsistency to this point, however, owners can be forgiven if they don't want to go down that road.
