Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 5/24/18 6:03pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is not expected to report to camp before he did a year ago, which was just prior to Week 1 of the 2017 season, while still holding out for a long-term deal. Bell wants to be 'by far the highest-paid running back' in the league.

    Huddle Up: It's hard to blame Bell after he posted yet another monstrous campaign last season, registering a career-best nine rushing touchdowns to go with 1,291 yards on the ground via 321 rush attempts. He also accumulated 655 yards and a pair of touchdowns through the air on a career-high 85 receptions. Bell is a no-brainer early first-round pick in fantasy drafts, as usual.

  • Christian Kirk - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 5/24/18 12:53pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals second-round draft choice WR Christian Kirk signed a four-year contract with the Cardinals Thursday, May 24. Financial terms were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Kirk has a chance to be the No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for the Cardinals this upcoming season and should receive a solid amount of targets. He can be a late-round pick in deeper leagues and serve as a No. 4 or No. 5 fantasy receiver.

  • Josh McCown - QB - New York Jets
    Posted 5/24/18 12:15pm ET

    New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater will be considered for the starting quarterback job Week 1 if he plays well during the preseason and QB Sam Darnold shows he is not ready to play, according to sources. QB Josh McCown likely would be the starter if Bridgewater and Darnold struggle during the preseason.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation during training camp and the preseason to see if Darnold, Bridgewater or McCown will be the starting quarterback. None of the quarterbacks would be more than a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

  • LeSean McCoy - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 5/24/18 12:04pm ET

    Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (illness) was limited during organized team activities Thursday, May 24, because of an illness.

    Huddle Up: McCoy will continue to be a main focus on offense this upcoming season and should be one of the league leaders in touches. He can be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues and will be selected in one of the first two rounds of drafts.

  • Lamar Jackson - QB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 5/24/18 11:46am ET

    Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco was relatively mum regarding his opinion of the Ravens selecting QB Lamar Jackson with their first pick. 'When you draft anyone in the first round, there is always a plan,' Flacco said. 'What that plan is? I don't know. I'm worried about right now.'

    Huddle Up: Flacco has to be a little miffed that his career-long franchise used their first-round pick on a fellow quarterback. Flacco's job is in trouble, but he was never a reliable fantasy asset anyway. He can be avoided in traditional leagues.

  • Mark Ingram - RB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 5/24/18 10:40am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram is expected to report to the mandatory three-day minicamp in June despite being suspended for the first four games of the regular season, according to head coach Sean Payton.

    Huddle Up: Ingram has plenty of time to stay in shape and stay on fresh on the Saints' playbook. Alvin Kamara will handle the majority of backfield duties until his return and merits top-five PPR consideration at his position. The suspension and the presence of Kamara give Ingram low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 value.

  • Cameron Meredith - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 5/24/18 10:32am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (knee) is way ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to head coach Sean Payton. Payton added that the Saints have a 'clear vision' on how they want to use their new receiver.

    Huddle Up: If Meredith stays on this pace then there's a better than good chance he'll be fully available for training camp. The Saints won't want to push him too hard, though. New Orleans' crowded offense stunts Meredith's potential. As such, he's a WR4 or flex option.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 5/24/18 10:03am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is a full participant and off to a good start at organized team activities, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin is the No. 1 wide receiver on the Bills and will see a high volume of targets if he can stay on the field. That being said, the Bills' quarterback crew is an unreliable one, which limits Benjamin's upside. Drafting him as more than a low-end WR3 or high-end WR4 is playing with fire.

  • Tavon Austin - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 5/24/18 9:12am ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Tavon Austin will be implemented into the offense in a variety of ways, according to QB Dak Prescott. Austin can line up in the backfield, play X and Z wide receiver or line up in the slot.

    Huddle Up: Austin is a shifty Swiss army knife, but he has disappointed his entire career since being a top-10 pick in 2013. Admittedly, the Cowboys are shallow at the receiver position and Dallas provides a fresh start for the perennial letdown. Nevertheless, he is, at best, a late-round flier.

  • Zay Jones - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 5/24/18 7:46am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones (knee) had knee surgery Thursday, May 24, and will miss the remainder of the offseason program.

    Huddle Up: It has been an offseason to forget for Jones, but he still has WR5 clout.

  • Dez Bryant - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 5/23/18 8:17pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said he does not expect the Packers to sign free-agent WR Dez Bryant (Cowboys) this offseason.

    Huddle Up: Bryant has not received a lot of interest since being cut and rejected the only offer he has received. He may need to wait until training camp to sign with a team. He can still be a solid receiver and has a chance to be a No. 3 fantasy receiver in 2018.

  • Rishard Matthews - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 5/23/18 7:24pm ET

    Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews (undisclosed) is dealing with a minor undisclosed injury but should return to the field before offseason workouts end.

    Huddle Up: Matthews will be one of the starting receivers for the Titans and will have a solid role in the passing game. He can be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver for fantasy owners in 2018.

  • Andrew Luck - QB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 5/23/18 7:05pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) did not throw during organized team activities Wednesday, May 23, and head coach Frank Reich said he is not sure if Luck will throw before the end of June minicamp but is confident that Luck will ramp things up in time for training camp.

    Huddle Up: Owners will continue to monitor the situation to see when Luck will be able to throw again. He is one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL when he is healthy but will be a risky option for fantasy owners in 2018. Owners that select him will need very good backup options on their roster.

  • Josh Rosen - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 5/23/18 6:52pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks said he has not ruled out QB Josh Rosen being the starting quarterback this upcoming season.

    Huddle Up: Sam Bradford is considered the Cardinals' starting quarterback at this point, but Rosen could outperform Bradford during training camp. Owners should monitor the situation during camp because Rosen could be a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues if he wins the job.

  • Baker Mayfield - QB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 5/23/18 6:42pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield threw three interceptions during organized team activities Wednesday, May 23, with two of the three interceptions tipping off receivers' hands.

    Huddle Up: Mayfield is currently the No. 3 quarterback for the Browns but should move up the depth chart during training camp. He may not be the starting quarterback for the opener but has a decent chance to start at some point in 2018. He will be a popular pick in keeper leagues but can be avoided in standard leagues.

  • Albert Wilson - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 5/23/18 6:10pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Albert Wilson said he has lined up as an outside receiver as well as a slot receiver during organized team activities.

    Huddle Up: Wilson probably will serve as the No. 3 or No. 4 receiver for the Dolphins this season and should see a decent amount of targets. He could be a late-round option in deeper leagues but may go undrafted in most leagues.

  • Frank Gore - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 5/23/18 6:03pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Frank Gore likely will not participate in many team drills during offseason workouts, according to head coach Adam Gase.

    Huddle Up: The team probably wants to keep Gore fresh for the regular season, so Kenyan Drake should receive plenty of work during workouts. Gore will share playing time with Drake but could see a majority of the carries. Gore has a chance to be a No. 3 or No. 4 back for fantasy owners.

  • Duke Johnson - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 5/23/18 5:40pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson said that he is in discussions with the team about a contract extension and he's 'very optimistic' the two sides will come to an agreement.

    Huddle Up: Although the Browns signed Carlos Hyde to replace Isaiah Crowell in the backfield, that doesn't mean Johnson won't continue to have a valuable role. In his third NFL season last year, the 24-year-old only accumulated 348 yards on the ground on 82 carries, but he also scored four rushing touchdowns, not to mention while recording career bests in receiving yards, catches and touchdowns through the air. He can be a sneaky good RB2, especially in PPR formats.

  • Ryan Tannehill - QB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 5/23/18 11:34am ET

    Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) is fully cleared for all football activities as of last week. Tannehill no longer wears a knee brace and said he's feeling 'really good right now' after recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament he suffered two years ago.

    Huddle Up: Tannehill hasn't played football since 2016 and only played 13 games then. Even when he's healthy he's not a reliable fantasy starter, not to mention the sizable injury risk. At best he's a bye-week fill-in.

  • Anthony Miller - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 5/23/18 8:18am ET

    Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller is earmarked to be the slot receiver in the offense.

    Huddle Up: Miller is coming off a foot injury, and they'll be cautious with him in camp. He has a chance to be a buzzworthy WR5 flyer.
