Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • George Kittle - TE - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 10/18/18 5:16pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (knee) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Despite battling this knee issue going into this past Monday night's matchup at Lambeau Field, Kittle was able to play and logged his fourth-straight game with at least four catches. He's become an established lower-end TE1, even with C.J. Beathard throwing him the football.

  • Pierre Garcon - WR - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 10/18/18 5:14pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (knee, shoulder) got in a limited practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Garcon missed practice on Wednesday but it looks like he'll be fine for Week 7 against the Rams. However, he simply hasn't been as productive this year as he normally is, and with backup QB C.J. Beathard under center, that trend may continue. He's more of a WR4 at the moment.

  • Matt Breida - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 10/18/18 5:12pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle, shoulder) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Breida played through injury in the team's high-scoring loss to Green Bay on Monday night, but his status still needs to be monitored, seeing as how he almost didn't play in that game. He's turned into an acceptable RB2 this year and will have that potential opposite the Rams if he plays.

  • Greg Zuerlein - PK - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 10/18/18 4:54pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams PK Greg Zuerlein (groin) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Zuerlein should be able to play in Week 7 and will be a strong starting option for owners in all leagues.

  • Theo Riddick - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 10/18/18 3:55pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (knee) remained sidelined at practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: It's looking like Riddick will once again be out when the Lions take on the Dolphins in Miami on Sunday. If he doesn't play, that'll be five straight on the sidelines for the veteran tailback. Kerryon Johnson will continue to benefit in his absence.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 10/18/18 3:48pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle) was a limited participant in practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: It appears New England is just managing Gronk's reps, meaning he's in no danger of missing Week 7. As always, he'll be a TE1 when his Patriots travel to Chicago.

  • Julian Edelman - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 10/18/18 3:46pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (heel) was a limited participant at practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Edelman had managed to maintain perfect health since his season debut up until now. However, it could also be the team managing the veteran wide-out's reps. Either way, owners should definitely check up on his status throughout the weekend. He's a quality WR2 if he suits up.

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 10/18/18 3:42pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Miller probably will receive a majority of the carries this week and could be a flex option in some deeper leagues but is not a strong fantasy option against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

  • Deshaun Watson - QB - Houston Texans
    Posted 10/18/18 3:39pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson (chest) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Watson posted only 177 yards last week but should throw more than 25 times this week. He will be facing a solid Jacksonville Jaguars defense in Week 7 but can still be a low-end No. 1 quarterback for owners.

  • Josh Gordon - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 10/18/18 3:33pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Gordon has been getting eased into the fold with his new club, as he's typically been limited in practice. In other words, he's fine for the upcoming Week 7 road matchup against the Bears and will carry WR3 value.

  • Sony Michel - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 10/18/18 3:30pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) was a limited participant at practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: It's the same issue he's been dealing with recently, which shouldn't hold him back from playing in Week 7. As a result, you can continue to count on him as a solid RB2.

  • Will Fuller - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 10/18/18 3:30pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hip) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Fuller is coming off back-to-back disappointing performances and may be behind DeAndre Hopkins and Keke Coutee in terms of targets. He could still be a flex option in some leagues but is not a must-start option.

  • Keke Coutee - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 10/18/18 3:27pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Coutee has been a factor in the passing game over the last several weeks and should continue to see a solid amount of targets. He can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in most leagues despite the tough matchup.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 10/18/18 3:12pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (foot) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: It is not known if Hopkins is receiving a day off or if he suffered a setback at some point. Owners will know more about his status after practice Friday, Oct. 19. Hopkins is one of the top receivers in the NFL and should be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Allen Robinson - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 10/18/18 2:57pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Robinson was limited earlier in the week, so he may he suffered a setback at some point. Owners should know more about his status in the next day to two. He could be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver if he is able to play, but owners will need other options available in case Robinson is ruled out.

  • Cameron Meredith - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 10/18/18 2:44pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Meredith may receive more targets in the passing game with Ted Ginn Jr. sidelined. He is coming off a solid Week 5 performance but is facing a tough Baltimore Ravens defense this week. He could be a flex option in some leagues but can also be benched if owners have better options.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 10/18/18 2:41pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hip) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has played well this season but is a risky option this week because of his uncertain status. Owners will need to have other options available if Sanu is ruled out.

  • Calvin Ridley - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 10/18/18 2:35pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor Ridley's practice participation during the week to see if he has a chance to play in Week 7. He will be a risky fantasy option because the Falcons play on Monday Night Football, so owners may consider other options for their lineups this week.

  • Dalvin Cook - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 10/18/18 2:22pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Cook's status is uncertain at this point, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. Owners should have other options ready to use in case Cook is ruled out for the Week 7 game.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 10/18/18 2:21pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Oct. 18, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Cameron Meredith and Tre'Quan Smith probably will receive more targets in the passing game with Ginn sidelined. Both players should be owned in leagues because of the Saints offensive scheme and could be flex options against favorable matchups.
