Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Derrick Henry - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 10/16/17 8:59pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry racked up 131 rushing yards and a touchdown on 19 carries in the team's Week 6 game Monday, Oct. 16, versus the Indianapolis Colts. He also had one catch for 14 yards.

    Huddle Up: Henry did the majority of his damage on his final rush attempt, taking it 72 yards into the end zone to put the game out of reach. His owners should not only be happy with this performance but also with the fact that he recorded more rushes than DeMarco Murray, who received just 12 carries. Henry is a fine weekly FLEX option in most leagues, with the potential to be a serviceable RB2 if his workload was steadier.

  • Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 10/16/17 8:53pm ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (hamstring) completed 23 of 32 passes for 306 yards, one touchdown and one interception in his return to action Monday, Oct. 16, against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Mariota missed last week's affair against the Dolphins but certainly didn't show any rust in this one, as he recorded season highs in passing yards and completion percentage. The only disappointment was that he didn't chip in any rushing yards, but that shouldn't be a surprise given his hamstring issue. Another week of rest should allow him to scramble more again, but overall, owners who decided to fire him up this week have to be pleased with this outcome.

  • Tyreek Hill - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 10/16/17 8:32pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (neck) was a full participant in practice Monday, Oct. 16.

    Huddle Up: This is good news for Hill, who was thought to have suffered a concussion towards the end of Sunday's contest, but after being checked out, it turns out he did not. At the same time, he might be a bit of a risky start if he's not 100 percent, considering he's coming off a game that saw him register his lowest receiving yards (34) of the season. As of now, though, he's still a WR3.

  • Kareem Hunt - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 10/16/17 7:47pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (knee) was a full participant in practice Monday, Oct. 16.

    Huddle Up: Hunt was a bit humbled for the first time in his rookie campaign on Sunday, being held to just 21 yards on the ground on nine carries, but he still managed to salvage his day with five catches for 89 yards through the air. He'll be out there on Thursday night and as usual, he can be fired up as a trusty RB1.

  • DeVante Parker - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 10/16/17 6:41pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (ankle) is uncertain to return in the team's Week 7 game Sunday, Oct. 22, against the New York Jets, according to head coach Adam Gase.

    Huddle Up: With Parker out this past Sunday, it was Jarvis Landry who benefited the most, drawing a whopping 14 targets from Jay Cutler, so he'll be highly recommended in DFS formats if Parker has to sit again. The former second-round draft pick has played through injury before, though, so there's still a decent chance he suits up versus the rival Jets.

  • Ezekiel Elliott - RB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 10/16/17 6:01pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott seeking a temporary restraining order to postpone his six-game suspension, and lawyers from the NFL Players Association have filed paperwork with the U.S. District Court on behalf of Elliott.

    Huddle Up: Elliott is currently suspended but would be able to play in Week 7 if he receives the restraining order. Owners should continue to monitor the situation and will need other options available in case Elliot is not allowed to play.

  • Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 10/16/17 4:03pm ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (hamstring) is officially active for the team's Week 6 game and will be the starting quarterback.

    Huddle Up: Mariota will be playing despite his hamstring injury and his movement may be affected a bit because of the injury. He will have a favorable matchup against the Indianapolis Colts and should be started if owners decided to wait on him.

  • Dustin Hopkins - PK - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/16/17 3:46pm ET

    Washington Redskins PK Dustin Hopkins (hip) will miss at least one week because of a partially torn muscle in his hip and is considered week-to-week, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: The Redskins will sign a new kicker this week, but owners will have several options to choose from if they have Hopkins in their lineup.

  • Jameis Winston - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 10/16/17 2:58pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) is considered day-to-day because of a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder, according to head coach Dirk Koetter. Koetter said Winston is not expected do any throwing during practice this week.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation this week to see if Winston will be able to play in Week 7. He has thrown for at least 300 yards in three of the last four games and would be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he is active but would also come with some risk.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 10/16/17 1:41pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) will need surgery on his broken collarbone and could miss the rest of the season, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers likely will miss the rest of the regular season, so owners in standard leagues can drop him if they need to add another quarterback. Brett Hundley will be the starting quarterback moving forward but is no better than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback. The quarterback change will hurt the fantasy value of the Packers receivers and tight ends.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 10/16/17 1:36pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones will be more involved in the offense if head coach Dan Quinn has his way. Quinn said he was not satisfied with how often Jones was seeing the ball, adding that more offensive plays in general will help that cause.

    Huddle Up: There has been a plethora of fantasy disappointments in 2017, one of them being Jones. The star receiver has amassed just 25 catches for 367 yards and -- worst of all -- no touchdowns. Needless to say, though, he needs to remain a fixture in fantasy lineups.

  • Trevor Siemian - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/16/17 12:34pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (shoulder) suffered a minor shoulder sprain in Week 6 but is expected to play in Week 7, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Siemian's 376 yards were impressive and currently lead all quarterbacks for Week 6, but highly questionable reads and subsequent throws doomed the Broncos Sunday night. Siemian remains a backup fantasy quarterback going forward.

  • Rob Kelley - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/16/17 12:28pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ribs) will be able to participate in practice this week, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

    Huddle Up: Kelley has missed the last game because of the injury but appears to have a chance to play in Week 7. He probably would share playing time with Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson if he is active this week but could receive a majority of the carries. Kelley can be a flex option in some deeper leagues.

  • Dustin Hopkins - PK - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/16/17 12:22pm ET

    Washington Redskins PK Dustin Hopkins (hip) is dealing with a right hip rotator muscle sprain. Free-agent kickers are expected to work out for the Redskins this week in light of the injury, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins' prospects for Week 7 don't sound promising, so be ready to start another kicker. Some names that might be available to fill in include: Stephen Hauschka, Chandler Catanzaro and Chris Boswell.

  • Charles Clay - TE - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 10/16/17 12:11pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) is considered week-to-week because of his knee injury.

    Huddle Up: Nick O'Leary probably will take over as the starting tight end while Clay is sidelined. He played well in Week 5 when he recorded five catches and 54 yards after taking over for Clay. Owners in all leagues should be able to find better options to use and can avoid O'Leary.

  • Emmanuel Sanders - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/16/17 11:57am ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) will be sidelined next week with a sprained ankle, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: That's more on the side of good news since the hit on Sanders looked a good deal worse Sunday night. With Sanders out, Bennie Fowler will assume the No. 2 wide receiver position opposite Demaryius Thomas. Fowler is a deep sleeper in standard leagues, but starting him versus the Los Angeles Chargers might be getting too cute.

  • Kevin Hogan - QB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/16/17 11:47am ET

    Cleveland Browns QBs Kevin Hogan, DeShone Kizer and Cody Kessler will know who will start next week by Wednesday, Oct. 18, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

    Huddle Up: Cleveland has been wishy washy with the quarterback position this year, or rather for the last couple decades or so. None of Hogan, Kizer or Kessler should be started unless they're the last possible option for those who own Aaron Rodgers and/or Sam Bradford and/or a bye-week quarterback.

  • Teddy Bridgewater - QB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 10/16/17 11:40am ET

    Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) will be taken off the Physically Unable to Perform list and should practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: It's been a long time coming for Bridgewater to return to practice. Case Keenum has filled in splendidly for the most part with both Bridgewater and Sam Bradford out of commission. The Vikings may have a three-way competition at the position on their hands once Bradford and Bridgewater are ready to go. None of them should be considered weekly QB1 options, however.

  • Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 10/16/17 11:16am ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (hamstring) is expected to play Monday, Oct. 16, against the Indianapolis Colts despite being considered a game-time decision.

    Huddle Up: Mariota is back in time for a stellar matchup against one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL so far in 2017. The dual-threat quarterback is winless in his young career versus Indianapolis (0-3), but in three games he has averaged more than 300 total yards and two touchdowns. Start him tonight if it's not too late.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 10/16/17 10:51am ET

    Contradicting a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant told reporters Monday, Oct. 16, he did not request a trade and has only talked with coaches about getting better.

    Huddle Up: Reports surfaced over the weekend Bryant had been growing increasingly upset about his diminishing role and reduced snaps, as JuJu Smith-Schuster saw more snaps and ran more routes than he did for three straight weeks leading into Week 6. By all accounts, Bryant has been highly disappointing in fantasy this season and needs to be on fantasy benches until he gives an owner a reason for optimism.
