Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/22/17 9:39am ET

    Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (ankle) was able to practice Friday, Sept. 22, but will be a game-time decision for Week 3 versus the Tennessee Titans, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

    Huddle Up: The Seahawks' offense has been mostly dysfunctional through two games, and the combination of Russell Wilson leading him into big hits and Graham not being able to come up with a few of the good throws that have come his way have led to a frustrating start (four catches for nine yards). For at least this week, owners should consider other options.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/22/17 9:27am ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back, knee) has been ruled out for Week 3 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: It's an expected outcome after missing practice all week, but that doesn't make it any less frustrating for his fantasy owners. Already one of the league's most injury-prone players, Eifert produced only four catches for 46 scoreless yards in his first two games. Owners should not hesitate moving on from him if they need the room on their roster or, at the very least, add a player like Benjamin Watson or Zach Miller to help them through Eifert's absence. Cincinnati will use C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Kroft to replace him.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/22/17 8:41am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back, knee) is out of practice Friday, Sept. 22, and unlikely to play in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Tyler Kroft figures to take over, but the entire offense has been a mess this season. Look elsewhere for a tight end in fantasy.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/22/17 8:16am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (quadriceps) made it through the week OK, and he's good to go for Week 3, barring a setback, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

    Huddle Up: Nelson only has a 7-79-1 line on the year. He's a risky WR2 play this week, and Davante Adams could be poised for a big week against the Cincinnati Bengals.

  • Randall Cobb - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/22/17 8:12am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (chest) will be a game-time decision in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: If you own Cobb, it's likely he's a WR3 or a WR4. He hasn't performed well in the past through injuries, and it sounds like Jordy Nelson (quadriceps) will go. It's probably best to sit Cobb against the Cincinnati Bengals.

  • Evan Engram - TE - New York Giants
    Posted 9/22/17 7:28am ET

    New York Giants TE Evan Engram (concussion) is listed as questionable for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: If he's a full participant in practice today, Engram would make a decent injury fill-in against the Philadelphia Eagles.

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 9/22/17 5:05am ET

    Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins (concussion) is in the concussion protocol Friday, Sept. 22.

    Huddle Up: Watkins is coming off a 6-106-2 game in Week 3 but has a couple of extra days to recover. He'd be a WR3 option against the Dallas Cowboys if he's fit to go.

  • John Ross - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 9/21/17 11:28pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (knee) 'tweaked' his knee during the team's practice Thursday, Sept. 21, and he'll likely require an MRI.

    Huddle Up: Ross, who missed Week 1 with a knee injury and sat out Wednesday's practice due to illness, apparently walked off under his own power without a noticeable limp. Ross had 'lottery ticket' potential given Green Bay's secondary troubles in Atlanta, but this certainly throws his Week 3 status into serious doubt.

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 9/21/17 11:21pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins (concussion) left the team's Week 3 game against the San Francisco 49ers with about eight minutes remaining after being evaluated on the sidelines for a head injury. Watkins went to the locker room and was placed in the NFL's concussion protocol.

    Huddle Up: This isn't the news fantasy owners wanted to hear after Watkins enjoyed his best game of the season by far. The silver lining is that the team doesn't take the field again until Oct. 1, giving Watkins 10 days to recover. If he does, he has WR2 potential against the Cowboys. If he doesn't, Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp become interesting options.

  • Tavon Austin - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 9/21/17 11:15pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin (concussion) was placed in the concussion protocol during the fourth quarter of the team's Week 3 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: It was another quiet night for Austin, who managed three carries for 14 yards (let's call it Austin 3:14, not nearly as cool as Austin 3:16) and was not targeted in the passing game. He'll have a few extra days to get cleared before Week 4, but with a combined 40 yards of offense through three weeks he's of no value to fantasy owners.

  • Brian Hoyer - QB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 9/21/17 9:47pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Brian Hoyer completed 23 of 37 passes for 332 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in a 41-39 loss to the Los Angeles Rams Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Coming off a terrible game, Hoyer started Week 3 with a brutal pick before rebounding for his best performance since leaving the Bears. Hoyer is capable of these kinds of showings, but he's also capable of what went down four days ago in Seattle. Still, if the matchup is juicy, Hoyer could offer short-term value.

  • Robert Woods - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 9/21/17 9:25pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods registered six receptions for 108 yards in the team's Week 3 win over the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: This is what the Rams were hoping for when they inked Woods to a five-year, $39 million deal in the offseason. Woods caught six of the seven balls thrown his way and looked like a nice complement to Sammy Watkins. One game does not a season make, but this shows Woods is capable of contributing at a fantasy-relevant level. For now he's a decent depth option.

  • Todd Gurley - RB - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 9/21/17 9:15pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley carried the ball 28 times for 113 yards (4.0 YPC) and two touchdowns against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3. Gurley added 36 yards and another score on five receptions.

    Huddle Up: Incredibly, this was Gurley's first 100-plus-yard rushing game since Dec. 13, 2015, against the Lions (a span of 20 games). He now leads the NFL in touchdowns with six and is averaging 127 total yards per game. If you're looking for an asterisk it's that Gurley fumbled for the third straight contest and fourth time this year. Still, after a dismal 2016 he's looking like a legitimate workhorse and viable RB1.

  • Jared Goff - QB - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 9/21/17 9:10pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff went 22-for-28 (78.6 percent) with 292 yards passing and three touchdowns against the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: This was Goff's best day as a professional as he lit up a 49ers defense that had been respectable in Week 1 and downright stout this past Sunday. You can blame fatigue for some of San Francisco's struggles, but it's time to acknowledge that Goff looks like a totally different player in Year 2. If he's available in your league he'd be worth plucking off waivers as a QB2 with starter potential in the right matchup.

  • Pierre Garcon - WR - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 9/21/17 9:05pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon finished with seven catches on 10 targets for a game-high 142 yards in a 41-39 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Garcon continues to be Brian Hoyer's go-to option, and he has piled up 25 targets and 249 yards in three games. He should be safe to deploy as a WR3 going forward, especially in PPR formats.

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 9/21/17 8:58pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins finished with six catches on seven targets for 106 yards and two touchdowns in a 41-39 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: After two lackluster games to start the year, Watkins broke out against San Francisco. Chemistry between Watkins and Jared Goff should only improve as the season goes on, and Watkins has WR2 upside against Dallas in Week 4.

  • Todd Gurley - RB - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 9/21/17 8:54pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley finished with 28 carries for 113 yards and two touchdowns and added five catches for 36 yards and a score in a 41-39 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Gurley now has as many touchdowns in three games this year as he did in all of 2016. He is quickly looking like a weekly RB1 option in all formats once again.

  • Jay Ajayi - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/21/17 8:40pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi is a 'hard guy to take out of the game,' according to head coach Adam Gase, but Gase said Ajayi wil be rested when needed during the week to make sure he is ready for the next game.

    Huddle Up: While Ajayi won't receive 28 carries every week, it sounds like Miami will try to limit his workload during practice rather than during games. He is a high-end RB1 heading into a Week 3 matchup against a Jets defense that has been gashed by the run this year.

  • Kenny Britt - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/21/17 8:03pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Kenny Britt said he was challenged 'man-to-man' by head coach Hue Jackson to step up and be a leader for the receiving corps.

    Huddle Up: Coming off a 1,000-yard campaign last year, Britt has two catches for 15 yards through two games in Cleveland. You may want to hang on to him to see if the injury to Corey Coleman boosts his production, but he shouldn't be anywhere near starting lineups in Week 3.

  • Odell Beckham - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 9/21/17 7:49pm ET

    New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) said he has experienced zero setbacks with his injured ankle after playing in Week 2, and he expects to play more against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Beckham played limited snaps and managed just 36 yards in his debut, but if he suits up in Week 3, he has too much potential to leave on the bench.
