Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Kapri Bibbs - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 12/18/17 2:20pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Kapri Bibbs will receive more playing over the last two games of the season after catching four passes for 47 yards in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Bibbs probably will be used mostly as a receiver out of the backfield but could also receive some carries in the running game. He has a chance to be a flex option in some deeper point-per-reception leagues but is not a must-start option.

  • Keenan Allen - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 12/18/17 1:56pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (back) is expected to be fine after injuring his back in Week 15, according to head coach Anthony Lynn.

    Huddle Up: The Chargers can't afford to lose Allen with the playoffs on the line. Fantasy owners can breathe more lightly too with Allen expected to play this week. He's an automatic start as long as he's active as Phillip Rivers' go-to target.

  • Hunter Henry - TE - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 12/18/17 1:50pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry (kidney) suffered a lacerated kidney in Week 15. His status is uncertain at this time.

    Huddle Up: As tough as football players are, playing with a lacerated kidney isn't conducive to success. If Henry is sidelined then Antonio Gates suddenly becomes fantasy relevant again. He scored yesterday, too, and would be worth picking up for Henry owners.

  • Jeremy Maclin - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 12/18/17 1:25pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens WR Jeremy Maclin (knee) is not dealing with a season-ending injury, but he probably will not be able to play in Week 16, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

    Huddle Up: Breshad Perriman, Michael Campanaro and Chris Moore are all candidates to receive more playing time if Maclin is ruled out this week, but none of the players should start in fantasy leagues.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 12/18/17 12:35pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones has averaged 123.6 yards in his career against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That's the highest averaged career yards per game for any player versus another team in NFL history. In Week 12, Jones racked up 253 yards and two touchdowns against Tampa Bay.

    Huddle Up: Jones is primed for a great outing tonight. He destroys the Bucs no matter how good they are defensively, but they rank last this year against the wide receiver position. It will be a surprise if Jones doesn't turn in a WR1 performance.

  • DeShone Kizer - QB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 12/18/17 11:43am ET

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer will continue to be the starting quarterback, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

    Huddle Up: Much of Kizer's rookie campaign has been forgettable, including the Week 15 shellacking at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens. Kizer surrendered another three turnovers in the loss but Jackson is sticking with his quarterback in another lost season for the Browns. The rookie can safely be dropped if he hasn't been already.

  • Drew Stanton - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 12/18/17 11:21am ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton will start against the New York Giants in Week 16 in place of QB Blaine Gabbert, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

    Huddle Up: Stanton played fairly well in the two games he started this year, throwing for 473 total yards and three touchdowns. Of course, he's nowhere near good enough to be starting on fantasy championship squads, but he makes for a cheap DFS play.

  • Marqise Lee - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 12/18/17 9:36am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (ankle) had an MRI on his injured ankle Monday, Dec. 18, and he'll return by the playoffs, if not sooner, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: It sounds like he's not going to be a fantasy option the last two weeks. Keelan Cole has touchdowns in three straight games and is coming off a 7-186-1 performance. He might sneak into the WR2 range the rest of the way.

  • Paxton Lynch - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 12/18/17 8:39am ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) could start the final two games if he's healthy enough to play as the team wants to evaluate him.

    Huddle Up: Lynch doesn't hold much fantasy value except in dynasty leagues; and that may be waning as well.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 12/18/17 8:10am ET

    Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham had one catch for minus-1 yard Sunday, Dec. 17, against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: That's two games in a row he has been a non-factor. The two games before that, he only salvaged three-catch efforts by scoring a touchdown. Graham will have a better matchup against the Dallas Cowboys next week, but he has become a really suspect TE1 play.

  • Rex Burkhead - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/18/17 6:06am ET

    Updating previous reports, New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (knee) is believed to have a sprained knee and a bruise but avoided a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He'll have an MRI Monday, Dec. 18.

    Huddle Up: Dion Lewis' stock only gets better, and Mike Gillislee could become a factor again. James White could start to see more carries, too. However, it's anyone's guess which back will be featured any given week. Burkhead's fantasy season is likely over.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 12/18/17 6:05am ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree had seven catches for 39 yards and two touchdowns against the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, Dec. 17.

    Huddle Up: He's inconsistent, but he still ends up as a WR2 in terms of fantasy points for the season. He's a weekly flex option with boom or bust potential.

  • Dak Prescott - QB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 12/18/17 5:32am ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott was 18-for-27 for 212 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 15 against the Oakland Raiders. He rushed six times for 32 yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Prescott is 30th in fantasy points per game the last five weeks, but he'll get Ezekiel Elliott back in Week 16. He'll have a chance to exploit a beat-up Seattle Seahawks defense next week as a low-end QB1.

  • Rishard Matthews - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 12/18/17 5:22am ET

    Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews had six catches for 95 yards and a touchdown Sunday, Dec. 17, against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Matthews had a clunker game last week, but he's averaging 6.6 targets the last five weeks with steady production. He's a WR3 candidate against the Los Angeles Rams next week.

  • Marquise Goodwin - WR - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 12/18/17 5:11am ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin had 10 catches for 114 yards Sunday, Dec. 17, against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Goodwin has 28 catches for 397 yards over the last four weeks, and he has emerged as a WR3 the rest of the way.

  • Carlos Hyde - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 12/17/17 11:44pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde rushed 16 times for 25 yards in a Week 15 win over the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: This was Hyde's worst game in a few outings, and with Matt Brieda earning more touches Hyde's fortunes will only go down. This game was against the Titans' vaunted run defense, however, so expect Hyde to stay in a starting role for Week 16.

  • Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 12/17/17 11:19pm ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota threw for 241 yards and two touchdowns in a Week 15 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Mariota has had an up-and-down season, and this turned out to be one of his better outings. Still, Mariota has been uneven to the point where he's a high-end QB2 at the best.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo - QB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 12/17/17 11:15pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo threw for 381 yards and a touchdown in a narrow Week 15 win over the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Garoppolo is slowly playing into a QB1 role that could carry into next season. This is another strong outing for the former New England Patriots backup, and it came in a game where a lot of people had the Titans favored.

  • Russell Wilson - QB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 12/17/17 9:01pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 14 of his 30 passes for 142 yards and a touchdown and rushed five times for 39 yards in a 42-7 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Wilson and company fell behind early and could never find their rhythm. Expect him to return to his QB1 ways against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 16.

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 12/17/17 8:57pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins caught two passes for 14 yards in a 42-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: The lopsided nature of this game no doubt hurt Watkins, but now that Robert Woods is back, Watkins will be a risky, touchdown-dependent option over the final two games.
