Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Mike Evans - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 12/10/17 7:12pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted just two receptions for 25 yards on five targets in Week 14 against the Detroit Lions

    Huddle Up: Evans hasn't had a 100-yard game this season, and he wasn't even close in this one. There have been some quarterback issues in Tampa this season, as Jameis Winston has been in and out of the lineup, but he was there in this game and he did next to nothing. He was drafted as a must-start WR1, but lately he has performed only like a WR3 or flex option. Not good.

  • Marvin Jones - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 12/10/17 7:11pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones hauled in three receptions for 64 yards on four targets in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Jones had the one off week back in Week 10 against the Browns of all teams, but he has been a consistent WR3 or flex option in fantasy leagues for most of the season.

  • Golden Tate - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 12/10/17 7:10pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate finished with eight receptions for 85 yards and a touchdown on his nine targets in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Tate has eight receptions in back-to-back games, and he has managed at least three receptions in each of his 13 games this season. He also returned to the end zone for the first time in four games. Tate has been a steady low-end WR2 or must-start WR3 in most fantasy leagues this season.

  • Eric Ebron - TE - Detroit Lions
    Posted 12/10/17 7:09pm ET

    Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron racked up 10 receptions for 94 yards on 11 targets in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Ebron has been a disappointment for most of his career but he has really started to come on lately. He has four or more receptions in each of the past four outings, totaling 22 receptions. This was his biggest production, though, by far. He is still more of a TE2 in most fantasy leagues until this becomes the norm.

  • Theo Riddick - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 12/10/17 7:08pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed 10 times for a team-high 29 yards in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added six receptions for 64 yards on 10 targets.

    Huddle Up: Riddick was the biggest beneficiary with Ameer Abdullah inactive, as he has 16 total touches to five for Tion Green and two for Zach Zenner. As long as Abdullah is on the shelf it's Riddick who is a valuable flex play in PPR formats.

  • Matthew Stafford - QB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 12/10/17 7:07pm ET

    Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford completed 36 of his 44 pass attempts for 381 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Week 14 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Stafford checked out early in Week 13 due to a hand injury, but he didn't seem to show any ill effects of the injury in this one. If you normally rely upon him in fantasy leagues it appears safe to keep using him going forward.

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/10/17 7:07pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller carried 17 times for 53 yards and caught two passes for seven yards in a 26-16 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Running room has been tougher for Miller to find since Deshaun Watson was injured, and his value is capped as a low-end, volume-based RB2.

  • Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 12/10/17 7:07pm ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (knee) was playing with an injured knee in the Week 14 game against the Arizona Cardinals, head coach Mike Mularkey said Sunday, Dec. 10. The quarterback said after the game that he expects to be fine.

    Huddle Up: Mariota has thrown more interceptions than touchdowns this season and he hasn't looked right for a while. He played through the injury on Sunday and was able to finish without missing any time, but he is not someone you want to rely upon going forward.

  • T.J. Yates - QB - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/10/17 6:55pm ET

    Houston Texans QB T.J. Yates completed 14 of his 26 passes for 175 yards and two touchdowns after taking over for QB Tom Savage (concussion) in a 26-16 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Yates doesn't need to be on the fantasy radar, but he looked to DeAndre Hopkins early and often once he entered the game, which is good news for the star receiver if Yates has to start in Week 15.

  • Cameron Brate - TE - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 12/10/17 6:54pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate finished with one reception for 11 yards on his only target in Week 14 against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Brate appears to have fallen behind rookie O.J. Howard in the pecking order among tight ends and that's obviously not good for his fantasy appeal. He is only worth retaining in the deepest of leagues heading into Week 15.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 12/10/17 6:54pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson ended up with four receptions for 41 yards on seven targets and he added a 23-yard rush.

    Huddle Up: Jackson has posted two or more receptions in each of his 13 games so far this season, regardless of the quarterback. While his yardage totals haven't been great, he remains a decent WR4 or flex option in deeper PPR formats.

  • O.J. Howard - TE - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 12/10/17 6:53pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard ended up with four receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown on six targets in Week 14 against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Howard has all the tools to be a TE1 going forward, but he has had to share the wealth with Cameron Brate. The rookie is starting to push ahead of Brate on the depth chart and he could be a fantasy stud in 2018 and beyond.

  • Chris Godwin - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 12/10/17 6:52pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin finished with five receptions for a team-high 68 yards on six targets in Week 14 against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Godwin has emerged as a solid pass catcher down the stretch for the Bucs, although fantasy owners of Mike Evans aren't terribly pleased with his emergence. Despite the solid play lately Godwin is still nothing more than a WR4 in deeper fantasy leagues down the stretch. He could be a nice sleeper in 2017, however.

  • Doug Martin - RB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 12/10/17 6:52pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin carried 10 times for 26 yards in the Week 14 game against the Detroit Lions and he added two receptions for 24 yards on his three targets.

    Huddle Up: Martin was outgained 58-26 on the ground by Peyton Barber, who was tremendously effective on the ground when Martin was sidelined by injury the week before. It appears there is going to be a Tampa timeshare in the backfield and Martin might be on the short end.

  • Peyton Barber - RB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 12/10/17 6:51pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed 12 times for a team-high 58 yards in Week 14 against the Detroit Lions and he added five-yard reception on his only target.

    Huddle Up: Barber led the team despite the return for Doug Martin from a one-game absence. Barber averaged 4.8 yards per run to just 2.6 yards per carry for Martin, and certainly looks to be the more effective back at this point. As long as there is a timeshare, however, he is nothing more than a RB3 or flex play in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Jameis Winston - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 12/10/17 6:50pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 26 of his 38 pass attempts for 285 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 14 game against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Winston has had difficulty with his surgically repaired shoulder and an ankle injury in a lost season for the Tampa Bay quarterback. He was expected to challenge for a spot as a QB1 in most fantasy leagues, but he has been far from dependable.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/10/17 6:48pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught 11 passes on 16 targets for 149 yards and two touchdowns in a 26-16 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Even with T.J. Yates taking over as quarterback, it didn't stop Hopkins from posting a big line. No Matter who is under center in Week 15, Hopkins can be trusted as a WR1.

  • Matt Breida - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 12/10/17 6:42pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida ran 12 times for 27 yards in a 26-16 win over the Houston Texans in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Breida logged a dozen carries for the second game in a row, and while he hasn't produced enough in his current role to consider starting him, he remains a must-own handcuff to Carlos Hyde.

  • Carlos Hyde - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 12/10/17 6:36pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde rushed 14 times for 78 yards and a touchdown in a 26-16 win over the Houston Texans in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Hyde posted a decent stat line, but Matt Breida continues to eat into his touches. He'll be a low-end RB2 in Week 15 against the solid rush defense of the Tennessee Titans.

  • Marquise Goodwin - WR - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 12/10/17 6:31pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin caught six passes on 12 targets for 106 yards in a 26-16 win over the Houston Texans in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Goodwin was already trending up with Pierre Garcon out for the year, and in two games with Jimmy Garoppolo under center, he has 14 catches for 205 yards. Goodwin should be picked up in all formats at this point, and he can make a serviceable WR3.
