Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Cordarrelle Patterson - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 3/18/18 3:33pm ET

    The Oakland Raiders are trading WR Cordarrelle Patterson to the New England Patriots, a source confirmed Sunday, March 18. It's uncertain what is headed back to the Raiders as compensation.

    Huddle Up: He'll likely take over as the primary kick return man in Foxboro, although he could make a splash as a receiver working with Tom Brady as well. At this point, Patterson would only be worth a look as a deep sleeper in larger formats, but he is a player worth monitoring in training camp and the preseason.

  • Allen Robinson - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 3/18/18 5:12am ET

    Updating previous reports, Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson's three-year contract is worth $42 million, with $18 million fully guaranteed by next week. He is scheduled to earn a base salary of $9.9 million for the 2019 season, with $7.2 million of it converting to a full guarantee by next March.

    Huddle Up: Robinson is coming off a torn anterior cruciate ligament suffered in the opening week of the 2017 season but should be fully healthy by the time training camp begins. He should be viewed as a WR2 in most fantasy formats.

  • Ryan Grant - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 3/17/18 4:29pm ET

    Free-agent WR Ryan Grant (Redskins) will visit with the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, March 18.

    Huddle Up: Grant had agreed on a deal with the Baltimore Ravens, but an ankle injury suffered in the regular season finale caused him to fail the physical and nullify the deal. It would be ironic if Grant landed in Oakland, as the Ravens turned to former Raiders WR Michael Crabtree after getting away from Grant.

  • DeMarco Murray - RB - Free Agent
    Posted 3/17/18 3:26pm ET

    Free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Titans) will visit with the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, March 18.

    Huddle Up: Murray could be a big-time fantasy producer if he finds the right situation. Without any proven backs in South Florida, Miami could be the perfect landing spot since he can run, catch out of the backfield and block at a high level.

  • Michael Campanaro - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 3/17/18 3:23pm ET

    A return by free-agent WR Michael Campanaro (Ravens) has not been ruled out by Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome. The GM said the door hasn't been closed on Campanaro, and the team has had conversations with him.

    Huddle Up: Campanaro hasn't really been much of a factor on the offensive side of the ball, but he has shown glimpses of brilliance on special teams. That's where his value is to his real-life team, and his fantasy value remains rather minimal regardless of where he lands.

  • Mike Wallace - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 3/17/18 3:22pm ET

    Free-agent WR Mike Wallace (Ravens) could still return to the Baltimore Ravens, as general manager Ozzie Newsome said he hasn't closed to door on re-signing the veteran. The club has had conversations with Wallace.

    Huddle Up: Wallace has bounced around the league, spending his five seasons with three different teams. He has re-emerged in Baltimore with 124 catches and 1,765 yards with eight touchdowns over the past two years with the Ravens. The team has signed Michael Crabtree and John Brown during the offseason, so it's uncertain if and where Wallace would fit in. His fantasy value might be higher elsewhere.

  • Matt Breida - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 3/17/18 3:21pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida is still expected to have a meaningful role even after the team signed RB Jerick McKinnon to be their lead back. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said Saturday, March 17, that he envisions the combination of McKinnon and Breida to be similar to Atlanta Falcons RBs Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman, a group that combined for 1,600 rushing yards and 85 receptions in 2016.

    Huddle Up: Breida will be the primary backup to McKinnon, but Joe Williams, Jeremy McNichols and Raheem Mostert are also in the mix and fighting for touches, too. Breida will be a good late-round handcuff to McKinnon, particularly in PPR formats.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 3/17/18 2:07pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch will receive his $1 million bonus Sunday, March 18, and will remain with the team, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Lynch likely will continue to be the starting running back for the Raiders but could lose some touches to Doug Martin. Lynch can be at least a No. 3 running back in standard leagues in 2018.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 3/17/18 10:17am ET

    Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (Redskins) is scheduled to meet with the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, March 18, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: The Seahawks will need to replace Paul Richardson, so Pryor is one of the options that they are looking at in free agency. He is coming off a disappointing 2017 season but is a solid receiver and can be a No. 3 or 4 fantasy receiver depending on his role.

  • DeMarco Murray - RB - Free Agent
    Posted 3/17/18 9:23am ET

    Free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Titans) has received some interest from the Miami Dolphins, but it is not known if a visit has been scheduled, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: The Dolphins have Kenyan Drake as their No. 1 running back, but Murray could be more traditional running back for the Dolphins. He probably would see limited playing time if he joins Miami but could be a No. 3 running back or flex option in standard leagues.

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 3/16/18 8:55pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins 'hasn't been used correctly as a pro,' according to an AFC scout. 'If he gets enough touches each game, he can be a difference-maker,' the scout said.

    Huddle Up: To be fair, injuries haven't helped his production either, but playing alongside Tyreek Hill, Watkins has tons of upside as a WR3.

  • Jaron Brown - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 3/16/18 8:28pm ET

    Free-agent WR Jaron Brown (Cardinals) has agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks Friday, March 16, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Seattle lost Jimmy Graham and Paul Richardson in free agency, but even with Seattle turning the offense over to Russell Wilson, Brown figures to be a bench option for fantasy owners.

  • Sam Bradford - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 3/16/18 7:05pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford (knee) said his knee is feeling strong despite all the injuries during his career. 'I've been through a lot with it, but all I can tell you is how I feel right now and really where it's gone since I had the procedure in November,' Bradford said. 'It's done nothing but get better and I feel good at the moment.'

    Huddle Up: Bradford will have some weapons to work with in Arizona, but his health is a major concern. Grab him as a QB2 and hope he can last the season.

  • LeGarrette Blount - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 3/16/18 6:37pm ET

    Free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount (Eagles) has agreed to a one-year deal with the Detroit Lions worth $4.5 million, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Detroit's ground game has been miserable in recent years, and Blount should immediately become the lead back in between the tackles and near the goal line. He could sneak into RB2 territory.

  • Jordan Matthews - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 3/16/18 5:21pm ET

    Free-agent WR Jordan Matthews (Bills) visited with the Arizona Cardinals on Friday, March 16.

    Huddle Up: Matthews had a disappointing and injury-marred season in Buffalo in 2017. He is looking to resurrect his career, and could be a nice addition in Arizona as they look to replace John Brown.

  • Jeremy Hill - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 3/16/18 4:05pm ET

    The New England Patriots are set to sign free-agent RB Jeremy Hill (Bengals), a source said Friday, March 16.

    Huddle Up: Hill will essentially replace Dion Lewis, who was lost to the Tennessee Titans. After being lost in the shuffle in the Queen City with Joe Mixon taking the reins of the offense, Hill might see a rebound in fantasy appeal depending on his role. Former Bengals back Rex Burkhead emerged as a solid fantasy option in Foxboro last season. Perhaps Hill will also see a renaissance.

  • Jarius Wright - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 3/16/18 3:32pm ET

    The Minnesota Vikings released WR Jarius Wright on Friday, March 16.

    Huddle Up: Wright posted 153 receptions for 2,039 yards and 10 touchdowns in his six seasons with the Vikings, including 198 yards and two scores last season. He might latch on with another organization, but his fantasy value remains rather minimal at this time.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 3/16/18 3:28pm ET

    The Baltimore Ravens reached an agreement with free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (Raiders) on a three-year contract on Friday, March 16, according to a source. Financial details were undisclosed.

    Huddle Up: Crabtree takes the place of Ryan Grant, who had his deal nullified due to a medical issue. The veteran receiver is probably a better addition than Grant anyway, as the latter never had a 100-yard game. Crabtree is likely to slot as the No. 1 receiver in Baltimore, and he'll be a solid WR3 or flex fantasy option in 2018.

  • Case Keenum - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 3/16/18 2:07pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum has $1 million in annual incentives, and they're entirely based on playoff wins.

    Huddle Up: Playoff wins do not mean anything to fantasy owners, who will be done by then. However, if he is able to realize those incentives it likely means he played at a high level during the regular season for his fantasy owners. He has one of the better one-two wideout duos in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, so expect big things out of Keenum.

  • Kirk Cousins - QB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 3/16/18 2:03pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins has $6 million in incentives, $2 million per year, tied to his three-year, $84 million deal. Those incentives are triggered by play time, team points scored and Super Bowl wins. To hit the highest level in any year, Cousins has to be Super Bowl MVP.

    Huddle Up: You like that? Cousins heads to the Twin Cities with lofty expectations, and with the additions on the defensive side of the ball the Vikings will be a favorite in the NFC. He'll be a decent low-end QB1 fantasy option heading into 2018.
