Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Julian Edelman - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 10/20/18 11:17am ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (heel) is traveling with the team for their Week 7 game and is still listed as questionable.

    Huddle Up: Edelman likely will be active for the Week 7 game and should see plenty of targets during the game. He can be considered at least a No. 3 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • DeVante Parker - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 10/20/18 11:06am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker is a trade target for several teams, but the Dolphins are not shopping him at this point. The Dolphins have talked with multiple teams about Parker.

    Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on the situation over the next few weeks to see if Parker will stay with the Dolphins or join a new team. He has struggled with injuries this season and should be avoided in most leagues at this time.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 10/20/18 10:57am ET

    New York Jets WR Terrelle Pryor (groin) will be released Saturday, Oct. 20, according to a source. Pryor has a tear in his groin and is expected to be sidelined for around two weeks. The Jets will be interested in re-signing Pryor when he is healthy, but he likely will receive interest from other teams.

    Huddle Up: Pryor has recorded 14 catches and 235 yards so far this season and could receive interest from several teams once he is healthy. Owners that have Pryor could consider stashing him on their bench until he is ready to play.

  • Evan Engram - TE - New York Giants
    Posted 10/20/18 10:31am ET

    New York Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) fully participated in practice Saturday, Oct. 20, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Engram ready to play this week after missing several games because of his injury. He should be a popular target in the passing game this week and can be a No. 1 fantasy tight end in all leagues.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 10/20/18 10:20am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. (knee) recently underwent arthroscopic knee surgery after dealing with some inflammation in the knee. Head coach Sean Payton said Ginn could return later this season.

    Huddle Up: Tre'Quan Smith and Cameron Meredith should receive more targets while Ginn is sidelined. Both receivers should be owned and could be flex options in favorable matchups.

  • David Johnson - RB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 10/20/18 9:45am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson hopefully will be more involved in the offense under new offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich, according to head coach Steve Wilks.

    Huddle Up: Johnson has not rushed for more than 71 yards in any game this season and has only caught 20 passes for 166 yards in seven games. He probably will be featured more under Leftwich and hopefully will return to his No. 1 fantasy running back status.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 10/20/18 9:22am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hip) is participating in practice Saturday, Oct. 20.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has missed the first two days of practice, but he appears to have a chance to play this week. He is a risky option because the Falcons play on Monday Night Football, so owners will need other options available if they want to keep Sanu in their lineups.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 10/20/18 9:14am ET

    Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (groin) may be placed on the Reserve/Injured list because of his groin injury.

    Huddle Up: Lynch would miss at least eight weeks if he placed on the Reserve/Injured list, so he would not have much fantasy value for the rest of the season. Doug Martin is expected to receive a majority of the work at running back at this point but is probably only a flex option in standard leagues.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 10/20/18 6:01am ET

    Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (hamstring, dehydration) has been dealing with dehydration recently, in addition to a minor hamstring injury, according to head coach Anthony Lynn. However, he was not listed on the injury report after practicing on a limited basis Friday, Oct. 19, and he is expected to play in Week 7's game against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Gordon is ranked third in the NFL with 466 rushing yards and has at least one touchdown in his last five games, including three last week versus the Cleveland Browns. He has a very favorable matchup against the Titans, who have allowed an average of 123.2 rushing yards per game in 2018, and should be viewed as a must-start option in all fantasy formats.

  • Carlos Hyde - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/19/18 10:22pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde is not expected to play in Week 7 against the Houston Texans, according to 1010XL's Hays Carlyon.

    Huddle Up: This shouldn't be a shocker given Hyde was acquired on Friday. Granted, this is not official, but you should have alternate plans set for Week 7.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 10/19/18 7:07pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith is expected to see a larger role after WR Ted Ginn Jr. (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list, and Smith said he is 'ready for the opportunity.'

    Huddle Up: Smith was able to show that he can be a threat down the field when he caught three passes for 111 and two touchdowns against the Washington Redskins in Week 5. He will be a boom-or-bust flex option against the Ravens in Week 7.

  • Carlos Hyde - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/19/18 6:33pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde won't overtake RB T.J. Yeldon for the lead back role against the Houston Texans in Week 7, according to Michael DiRocco of

    Huddle Up: The Jaguars backfield could become quite crowded if Leonard Fournette is ever healthy, but until Hyde's role becomes clear, you should hang on to him in all formats. That being said, you won't want to start him in Week 7.

  • T.J. Yeldon - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 10/19/18 6:27pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon will remain the 'main back' for the Week 7 game against the Houston Texans, according to Michael DiRocco of

    Huddle Up: The Jaguars just acquired Carlos Hyde, but until he has a full week of practice with the team under his belt, it makes sense that Yeldon would shoulder most of the load. Yeldon can be a RB2 in most leagues.

  • Josh Rosen - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 10/19/18 5:35pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen (toe) is dealing with a sprained left toe but should be available for the Week 8 game, according to head coach Steve Wilks.

    Huddle Up: Rosen has struggled since taking over as the starting quarterback but will be working with a new offensive coordinator next week. Rosen should not be a starting option in any fantasy leagues, but owners may want to keep an eye on him to see if he improves over the next few weeks.

  • Greg Zuerlein - PK - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 10/19/18 3:43pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams PK Greg Zuerlein (groin) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 19, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Zuerlein is one of the top kickers in the NFL and is a must-start option in all leagues when he is healthy.

  • DeVante Parker - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 10/19/18 3:12pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (quadriceps) said he will be available for the Week 7 game but is not sure how much playing time he will be able to handle because of the injury.

    Huddle Up: Parker has been limited to only two games because of injuries and has posted only 40 yards in those games. Owners probably should avoid him even if he is active for the game.

  • Jalen Richard - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 10/19/18 2:58pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Jalen Richard is expected to see a bump in workload with RB Marshawn Lynch (groin) sidelined. Richard has just three touches when the team is leading, and 39 touches when tied or trailing, but that is expected to change with just RB Doug Martin standing in the way.

    Huddle Up: Richard will likely see plenty of targets out of the backfield, as he has shown good hands in the past. Doug Martin is currently projected to be the lead back heading out of the bye in Week 8, but many expect Richard to be the biggest winner in terms of fantasy value in the Oakland backfield.

  • Doug Martin - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 10/19/18 2:52pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Doug Martin is expected to handle the bulk of the carries with RB Marshawn Lynch (groin) sidelined for at least a month. Head coach Jon Gruden is reportedly high on Martin, and believes he is ready for increased involvement.

    Huddle Up: Martin appears to get the first crack at being the bellcow, but most expect Jalen Richard and perhaps DeAndre Washington to figure in to the backfield plans, too. For now, Martin has the biggest short-term fantasy jump in value.

  • DeAndre Washington - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 10/19/18 2:50pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB DeAndre Washington might be active in Week 7 following the injury to RB Marshawn Lynch (groin).

    Huddle Up: Washington has been inactive, but he could see a handful of touches while Lynch is on the shelf. The pecking order appears to be Doug Martin, Jalen Richard and then Washington, so his fantasy value is limited to the deepest leagues for now.

  • Carlos Hyde - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/19/18 2:39pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson will see a larger role following the trade of RB Carlos Hyde to the Jacksonville Jaguars, and Johnson is expected to return to his role of 2017, when he topped 1,000 yards rushing and receiving while leading the team in touchdowns.

    Huddle Up: Rookie Nick Chubb is expected to be the starting back with a bulk of the carries, but Johnson will see an increase in touches, too. Fantasy owners in PPR leagues will likely see the biggest impact from Johnson's increased workload, as a majority of his added touches will likely come through the air.
