Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Jay Ajayi - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/19/18 7:54am ET

    Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi (back) is day to day.

    Huddle Up: The team came out and said there's a good chance he'll miss Week 3. Corey Clement and Wendell Smallwood would share the work if that's the case. Watch Ajayi's status through the week.

  • T.J. Yeldon - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/19/18 7:12am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (ankle) is not expected to practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: Yeldon would need Leonard Fournette (hamstring) to be limited or out to be a viable play against a tough Tennessee Titans matchup.

  • Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/19/18 6:55am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) is expected to practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: Fournette could return this week, especially since T.J. Yeldon (ankle) is banged up. However, the Tennessee Titans are in the top five in defending the position the first two weeks of the season. Fournette would be a high-end RB2 play.

  • Antonio Brown - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 9/19/18 5:55am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown is expected to be in the facility Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: There is a chance coach Mike Tomlin disciplines him after AB missed meetings Monday. Keep tabs on his status throughout the week.

  • Randy Bullock - PK - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/19/18 5:28am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals PK Randy Bullock signed a two-year, $4.205 million extension Wednesday, Sept. 19, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Bullock leads the AFC in points and is a good PK1 against the Carolina Panthers this week.

  • Jordan Matthews - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/19/18 5:10am ET

    Free-agent WR Jordan Matthews (Patriots) is signing with the Philadelphia Eagles Wednesday, Sept. 19. Terms weren't disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Matthews could be worth a waiver claim in deeper leagues, but he's mostly a watch list player right now.

  • DeVante Parker - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/18/18 11:49pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (finger) was healthy enough to play in Week 2, according to head coach Adam Gase, who cited 'a lot of moving parts' as to why Parker was inactive. Gase, who informed Parker of his decision the night before the game, also indicated that an extra week of rest wouldn't hurt with Parker's health.

    Huddle Up: Hard to imagine a coach voluntarily holding out someone he considers to be a vital part of the passing game so this news doesn't cast a very glowing portrait of Gase's view of Parker's value to the team. Miami's aerial attack has hardly been dynamic in their 2-0 start, so you'd think there's room for Parker to carve out a spot, but until he shows something he belongs moored to your bench.

  • Chris Carson - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/18/18 6:35pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson was listed atop the team's Week 3 depth chart Tuesday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: This is notable is because Carson was "gassed" - according to head coach Pete Carroll - from playing special teams and did see a single touch in the second half during the team's Week 2 loss to the Chicago Bears. Carroll sang the praises of Carson all spring and summer, but his playing time isn't reflecting it. The 2017 seventh-round pick has averaged 5.8 yards per carry so far versus Rashaad Penny's 2.2, yet the latter has more carries than the former (17-13), leaving him as an RB3/flex until something changes.

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 9/18/18 6:09pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster leads the NFL with eight red zone targets through two weeks.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster has drawn an eye-popping 27 targets so far, six fewer than teammate and league leader Antonio Brown. Taking that one step further, Smith-Schuster has 60 more yards on the same number of receptions. Perhaps more interestingly, the second-year receiver has lined up in the slot in 92 of his 105 snaps this season. His production will start slowing down a bit once the Steelers operate in positive game scripts, but he has certainly emerged as a high-end fantasy WR2.

  • Jordan Howard - RB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/18/18 3:39pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard will 'probably' be given more carries going forward, according to Matt Nagy. Nagy added that the Bears won't plan a certain amount of passes or carries in any particular game, they'll simply 'play it out as is.'

    Huddle Up: The 14 carries Howard tallied in last night's contest isn't a huge concern. What is concerning are the 35 yards gained from those 14 carries. Still, Howard has averaged 18.5 touches per game through the first two weeks of the season. Keep plugging him in as a low-end RB1 or high-end RB2.

  • Quincy Enunwa - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 9/18/18 1:44pm ET

    New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (thumb) participated fully in practice Tuesday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: Underrated all offseason, Enunwa has now amassed 13 catches for 155 yards and a touchdown in two games. He easily paces the Jets with 21 targets as Sam Darnold's favorite target. Enunwa now resides in WR2 company.

  • Jordan Matthews - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/18/18 12:23pm ET

    Free-agent WR Jordan Matthews (Patriots) was spotted at the Philadelphia Eagles' facility Tuesday, Sept. 19, and is a candidate to re-sign with the team with the Eagles in need of wide receiver help.

    Huddle Up: Alshon Jeffery hasn't played yet this year, and Mike Wallace is done for the season with a broken leg, so the Eagles may turn to Matthews, a 2014 second-round pick who was traded to the Bills in the offseason a year ago. Matthews caught eight TDs in each of his 2014 and '15 seasons with Philly, but those obviously were different teams and seasons, and he's since disappointed with the Bills (25 catches in 10 games last year) and been waived by the Patriots. Matthews would be nothing more than a speculative deep-league fantasy add even if he does return to Philly.

  • Jay Ajayi - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/18/18 11:58am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi (back) has a good chance of being sidelined in Week 3, according to offensive coordinator Mike Groh.

    Huddle Up: Corey Clement is one of the most capable backup running backs in the NFL. In fact, just last week he totaled 85 yards on 11 touches, including five catches for 55 yards. If Ajayi is indeed ruled out then Clement owns RB2 upside.

  • Tyler Lockett - WR - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/18/18 11:46am ET

    Seattle Sehawks WR Tyler Lockett was on the field for a position-most 91 percent (60 of 66) of the team's offensive snaps Monday, Sept. 17, against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Brandon Marshall was second with 53 snaps Monday, but Lockett was the clear top target for Russell Wilson as he also led the team in targets (seven), receptions (five) and receiving yards (60), including his 19-yard scoring reception in the fourth quarter. Lockett is a solid flex consideration as long as Doug Baldwin remains sidelined.

  • Jarvis Landry - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/18/18 11:30am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (knee) was a limited practice participant Tuesday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: As long as Landry has no setbacks tomorrow he should be on the field Thursday night. With Josh Gordon gone, Landry is unequivocally the Browns' biggest receiving threat. As such, treat him as a low-end PPR WR1 to high-end PPR WR2.

  • Dallas Goedert - TE - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/18/18 10:58am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert could see more looks going forward, offensive coordinator Mike Groh said in a news conference Tuesday, Sept. 19. 'We have a talented player in Dallas, and we have to find ways to get him involved,' Groh said.

    Huddle Up: Goedert was a fantasy sleeper after being drafted in the second round, but he ranks seventh on the team so far with three targets, catching one for four yards. Goedert may indeed see more targets with WRs Alshon Jeffery and, now, Mike Wallace out, but it's unlikely to useful in most fantasy leagues unless something happens to starting TE Zach Ertz, who leads the team in targets (23), receptions (16) and receiving yards (142).

  • Antonio Brown - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 9/18/18 10:38am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown's agent Drew Rosenhaus released a statement Tuesday, Sept. 19, explaining his client's recent actions, including a 'trade me' tweet and missing team meetings Monday, Sept. 17. 'The tweet yesterday was not in reference to anything other than Antonio responding to a person he knows,' Rosenhaus said in his statement. 'It was not directed towards a trade, or wanting to be traded. Any idea he was asking for a trade is not accurate. Antonio had a personal matter. I talked to the team about it. His issue was unrelated to the tweet or his relationship with the team. Third, AB has an incredible drive to win. He just wants to win. That's all that that is. That's not anything more than him encouraging his coaches and teammates to win. And that's what his entire focus is on. Any notion, any speculation otherwise, can be put to bed. This is a non-story that has been blown out of proportion. We can end this right here and now.'

    Huddle Up: Brown and coach Mike Tomlin are set to meet Tuesday, and the expectation is this issue will amount to nothing and blow over quickly in time for the next Steelers dramatic incident.

  • Brice Butler - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/18/18 9:35am ET

    Free-agent WR Brice Butler (Cardinals) says he will be re-signing with the Dallas Cowboys, posting an 'I'm backkkkk!!' tweet Tuesday, Sept. 18, along with a photo of himself in a Cowboys uniform. The team has not made an offical announcement.

    Huddle Up: Butler caught 43 passes for 794 yards and six TDs from 2015-17 with the Cowboys, but his addition would just add another body to a fantasy-unfriendly wide receiver logjam. Six Dallas wideouts have drawn at least two targets so far with only one, Tavon Austin, owning double-digit fantasy points (standard scoring) through two games, and that came courtesy of his 64-yard scoring grab Sunday night. Stay away until the situation gains some clarity.

  • Antonio Brown - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 9/18/18 9:19am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown was absent from team meetings and film review Monday, Sept. 17, head coach Mike Tomlin confirmed Tuesday, Sept. 18, but did not say whether the absence was excused or not. As for Brown's 'trade me' tweet Monday, Tomlin said, '(I'm) not going to talk about much social media. I'll address that with him. I'll leave that between he and I.'

    Huddle Up: Brown fired off his tweet in response to a critical jab by a former Steelers PR staff member, but his absence Monday may indicate that there could be a little more here going on behind the scenes. The best guess, though, is that Tomlin and Brown will be able to smooth things out, and the latter will remain locked into his customary elite WR1 status.

  • Antonio Brown - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 9/18/18 8:40am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown was absent from meetings and film review Monday, Sept. 17, and it's not known whether it was excused or not.

    Huddle Up: A former Steelers employee was critical of AB on social media saying he was a product of the positive circumstances the team had when he was drafted. Brown fired back: "Trade me and let's find out." Clearly, there is a disconnect of some sorts here. Keep tabs on this when practice opens Wednesday to see if there is potential punishment for the elite WR1.
