Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/15/17 11:42am ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (toe) is expected to play in Week 15 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

    Huddle Up: That has been the general feeling all along despite the fact Hopkins has missed consecutive days of practice. More concerning than his recent injury this week is the likelihood he will draw shadow coverage from Jalen Ramsey. With that said, Hopkins figures to see enough targets to be worth using in fantasy, although there would not appear to be much difference between his ceiling and floor this week.

  • Kyle Rudolph - TE - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 12/15/17 11:07am ET

    Contrary to an earlier report, Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) has been listed as doubtful for Week 15 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Rudolph will still more than likely be ruled out at some point over the weekend, but it's an interesting upgrade considering head coach Mike Zimmer himself reportedly ruled out his starting tight end earlier in the day. Stay tuned.

  • Kyle Rudolph - TE - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 12/15/17 10:45am ET

    Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) will not play in Week 15 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: With four touchdowns over the last three weeks, Rudolph had started to become a trusted red zone option for Case Keenum. Without him, it increases the likelihood of Stefon Diggs or Jerick McKinnon will have a solid game, as either player figures to benefit from the targets Rudolph leaves behind. Adam Thielen also has a higher ceiling as well.

  • Allen Hurns - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 12/15/17 8:36am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (ankle) remains out of practice Friday, Dec. 15.

    Huddle Up: Hurns looks to be out for Week 15, and Dede Westbrook remains a sneaky flex option against the Houston Texans.

  • Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 12/15/17 8:36am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (quadriceps) is out of practice Friday, Dec. 15.

    Huddle Up: He has missed a whole week of practice and still played, and he has already said he expects to face the Houston Texans. Until something comes out that foils that, he's a low-end RB1 or a high-end RB2.

  • Trevor Siemian - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 12/15/17 7:49am ET

    Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (shoulder) suffered a sprained left shoulder, and he'll have an MRI Friday, Dec. 15.

    Huddle Up: Brock Osweiler figures to start unless Paxton Lynch (ankle) makes it back, but neither are worth fantasy consideration.

  • Tyrod Taylor - QB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/15/17 7:16am ET

    Updating previous reports, Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) was named the starter for Week 15, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

    Huddle Up: Taylor's matchup isn't terrible against the Miami Dolphins, but his production isn't viable enough for your lineups this week.

  • Mike Wallace - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 12/14/17 11:16pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace (ankle) said he'll return to practice Friday, Dec. 15, and will play in Week 15 against the Cleveland Browns. Wallace has yet to practice this week due to an ankle injury.

    Huddle Up: Wallace has played his best ball recently, averaging 73 yards per game over his last four, but the team's designated deep threat is always a risky play, even in a tempting matchup against the Browns.

  • T.Y. Hilton - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 12/14/17 10:31pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton had five receptions for 41 yards in Week 15 against the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: Same stuff, different night for Hilton, whose season totals are only respectable due to three big games -- in the other 11 Hilton has an anemic 29-347-1 line. It's not really his fault as his deep game is a poor fit for a quarterback that's constantly under pressure, but fantasy owners should consider keeping Hilton on the bench at this critical time of year if they can.

  • Jack Doyle - TE - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 12/14/17 10:16pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle had seven catches for 47 yards during the team's 25-13 loss to the Denver Broncos on Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Doyle has been up and down this season, leaving him as a risky fringe play from week to week. With 71 receptions on the season he's clearly a better option in PPR formats, though he can be deployed in standard leagues as a desperate roll of the dice as well.

  • Frank Gore - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 12/14/17 10:00pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore gained 31 yards on 10 carries and added three receptions for 37 yards against the Denver Broncos in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Maybe we shouldn't be surprised that the 34-year-old was worn down after carrying the ball 36 times just four days earlier. It promises to be tough going again in Week 16 against a stout Baltimore Ravens defense, leaving Gore as an RB3 or flex option with a pretty low ceiling.

  • Jacoby Brissett - QB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 12/14/17 9:47pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett completed 17 of his 30 passes for 158 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions against the Denver Broncos Thursday, Dec. 14. Brissett added 18 rushing yards and a touchdown on five carries.

    Huddle Up: Brissett had some impressive showings this year, especially when you consider he joined the team after the preseason had concluded, but he has really leveled out over the past month with Thursday representing his fourth straight game of less than 200 yards passing. A trip to Baltimore awaits in Week 16 so avoid starting Brissett if you possibly can.

  • Demaryius Thomas - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 12/14/17 9:24pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas caught five passes for 69 yards on Wednesday, Dec. 14, against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Thomas' five-catch, 69-yard showing was respectable, but he failed to score for the third time in four weeks. Despite some uneven production he's unquestionably the most consistent option in the passing game -- averaging 9.6 targets per game over his last seven. That allows Thomas to retain WR3 value.

  • Emmanuel Sanders - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 12/14/17 9:14pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) caught a team-high seven passes for 68 yards prior to departing with an ankle injury against the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: After four consecutive games of less than 20 receiving yards Sanders looked well on his way to reaching the century mark before his balky ankle acted up. Given how poorly most of his season has gone, however, it'd be a leap of faith to start Sanders even if he's healthy in Week 16.

  • C.J. Anderson - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 12/14/17 9:10pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson logged 30 carries for 158 yards during the team's Week 15 win over the Indianapolis Colts. Both totals represented season highs.

    Huddle Up: It's been a mostly disappointing season for Anderson, who last topped 100 yards back in Week 2, but he came up big for owners that called his number in the playoffs. He could return value again next week with extra rest against an injury-plagued Washington Redskins squad playing out the string.

  • Brock Osweiler - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 12/14/17 8:56pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler completed 12 of his 17 passes for 194 yards and two touchdowns and ran three times for 17 yards and a score in a 25-13 win over the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Osweiler performed surprisingly well after replacing an injured Trevor Siemian. With Siemian out for the year, Osweiler will likely start the final two games, but you won't want to pin your fantasy playoff hopes on him.

  • Trevor Siemian - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 12/14/17 8:31pm ET

    Updating an ongoing story, Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (shoulder) has been diagnosed with a dislocated left shoulder Thursday, Dec. 14, and will miss the remainder of the season, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: With Siemian out of action and Paxton Lynch nursing an ankle injury, Brock Osweiler should start the final two games but doesn't need to be owned.

  • Emmanuel Sanders - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 12/14/17 8:16pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) will not return against the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Dec. 14, after aggravating an ankle injury.

    Huddle Up: Sanders was having his best game in quite some time, but he just can't seem to completely shake his ankle injury. If Sanders misses more time, it should only bolster Demaryius Thomas' fantasy floor.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 12/14/17 7:33pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a neck injury, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: With Peterson out for the year, Kerwynn Williams should remain a low-end, volume-based RB2 for the remainder of the season.

  • Andrew Luck - QB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 12/14/17 7:17pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) has no additional surgeries planned at this point, according to owner Jim Irsay.

    Huddle Up: There is still no definitive timeline for Luck's return, but he is expected to be ready for the start of the 2018 season. If he is healthy, he can be treated as a QB1.
