Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Allen Robinson - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 10/21/18 4:23pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) posted one reception for four yards on five targets in Week 7 against the New England Patriots. He was seen having his groin stretched out on the sideline.

    Huddle Up: Robinson entered the game questionable due to his groin injury, and he was obviously bothered by the injury. Most of the passes for Chicago went to the backs and tight ends in this one. Avoid using Robinson in Week 8 against the Jets unless he is able to practice in full next week and he is lifted from the injury report.

  • Kevin White - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 10/21/18 4:20pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Kevin White had two grabs for 64 yards in the Week 7 game against the New England Patriots. He had a 54-yard Hail Mary catch with no time left, coming up just one yard short of the end zone.

    Huddle Up: White almost had a highlight-reel catch that would have been shown for years, but now he is the regular season Kevin Dyson, coming up one-yard short of immortality. On a side note, it probably was the best catch of his injury-marred career. He'll look to carry over the momentum in Week 8 against the Jets, but his fantasy value is limited to the deepest of leagues.

  • Trey Burton - TE - Chicago Bears
    Posted 10/21/18 4:17pm ET

    Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton posted game bests with nine catches and 126 yards in the Week 7 game against the New England Patriots while scoring a touchdown with 11 targets.

    Huddle Up: Burton got off to a bit of a slow start with his new team, but he has now found the end zone in three consecutive outings. He'll look to make it four games in a row in Week 8 against the visiting Jets. Treat Burton as a low-end TE1 in most fantasy leagues for that matchup.

  • Tarik Cohen - RB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 10/21/18 4:15pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed six times for just 14 yards in Week 7 against the New England Patriots and he added eight receptions for 69 yards and a touchdown on a game-best 12 targets.

    Huddle Up: Cohen is a nifty pass catcher out of the backfield and that's where his fantasy value is, while Jordan Howard is the every-down back. Cohen has been outproducing Howard more often than not, and is a solid RB3 or flex option in PPR leagues. The Bears host the Jets in Week 8.

  • Jordan Howard - RB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 10/21/18 4:11pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed 12 times for 39 yards and a touchdown in the Week 7 game against the New England Patriots and he had a catch for nine yards on his only target.

    Huddle Up: Howard hasn't had a 100-yard game, but at least he was able to return to the end zone for the first time since Week 3 against the Cardinals. He remains more of an RB3 or flex fantasy option in most leagues heading into Week 8 against the Jets.

  • Mitchell Trubisky - QB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 10/21/18 4:05pm ET

    Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky completed 26-of-50 passes for 333 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions with six runs for a game-high 81 yards and a score in Week 7 against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Trubisky certainly measured up nicely against future Hall of Famer Tom Brady in their first-ever head-to-head matchup, and that's now three straight 300-yard games for Trubisky. He has emerged as a QB1 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. The Bears host the Jets in Week 8.

  • Geoff Swaim - TE - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 10/21/18 4:02pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys TE Geoff Swaim (leg) suffered a right leg injury in the fourth quarter of the Week 7 game against the Washington Redskins. He made a grab, tumbled over and appeared to grab the back of his hamstring or the upper knee area.

    Huddle Up: If Swaim is forced to miss time it would be Dalton Schultz seeing a majority of the snaps at the tight end position. Swaim has 19 catches on the season, but is more of a TE2 in most fantasy leagues when healthy.

  • Julian Edelman - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 10/21/18 3:38pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman finished with five receptions for 36 yards and a touchdown on eight targets in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Edelman was listed as questionable with a heel injury, but he didn't show any ill effects of the injury. He has found the end zone in back-to-back games and is back as a WR3 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 8 against the Bills on Monday night.

  • Chris Hogan - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 10/21/18 3:34pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan finished with six receptions for 63 yards in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: Hogan has three or more grabs in each of his past three games, but he hasn't found the end zone since Week 2 in Jacksonville. Treat Hogan as a WR4 in PPR formats heading into Week 8 against the Bills on Monday night, and a WR5 in all other formats.

  • Josh Gordon - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 10/21/18 3:31pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon posted four receptions for a team-high 100 yards on seven targets in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Gordon was questionable due to a hamstring injury, but he didn't show any ill effects in this one. He entered the day with 124 yards in his first three games with the Patriots and nearly eclipsed that in this one. Gordon is looking more comfortable with his new teammates and that's bad news for everyone else if he can stay on the field. The Patriots face the Bills in Week 8 on Monday night.

  • Kenjon Barner - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 10/21/18 3:28pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Kenjon Barner rushed 10 times for 36 yards in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Barner was getting touches because Sony Michel was forced out of the game due to a knee injury. If Michel is forced to miss time Barner might be the next man up, splitting time in the backfield with James White. The Patriots face the Bills on the road in Week 8 on Monday night.

  • James White - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 10/21/18 3:15pm ET

    New England Patriots RB James White rushed 11 times for a team-high 40 yards in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears and he added eight receptions for 57 yards and two scores on a team-high 10 targets.

    Huddle Up: White was a fantasy stud, torching the Bears on pass routes out of the backfield and making people miss. He'll look to keep it up in Week 8 in another road game on Monday night in Buffalo.

  • Dede Westbrook - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 10/21/18 3:11pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook caught four passes for 17 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Westbrook recorded a season low for yards this week and has only be targeted 14 times over the last three weeks. Owners in most leagues can consider benching him next week if they have better options to use.

  • Keelan Cole - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 10/21/18 3:06pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Keelan Cole caught two passes for 21 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Cole has been a bit inconsistent this season but has been held to under 50 yards in four of the last five games. He is not a great option for owners next week and can be benched in most leagues.

  • Donte Moncrief - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 10/21/18 3:03pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Donte Moncrief caught seven passes for 76 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Moncrief has played well in three of the last four games and appears to have become a popular target in the passing game. He is not a must-start option for owners next week but could be a flex option or bye week replacement in some deeper leagues.

  • Tom Brady - QB - New England Patriots
    Posted 10/21/18 3:01pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 25-of-36 passes for 277 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Brady has accounted for 10 passing touchdowns and two rushing scores over the past four games while throwing for 274 or more yards in each outing. He continues to defy Father Time and is fantasy elite. The Patriots travel to meet the Bills on Monday Night Football in Week 8.

  • T.J. Yeldon - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 10/21/18 2:59pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon caught five passes for 40 yards and one touchdown against the Houston Texans in Week 7. He also rushed for 28 yards on 12 carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Yeldon has been the main running back for the Jaguars over the last few weeks but could lose some touches when Carlos Hyde is ready to play. He will still have a role in the offense and can be a flex option in some leagues.

  • Jermaine Kearse - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 10/21/18 2:57pm ET

    New York Jets WR Jermaine Kearse had no catches on two targets in Week 7 against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Kearse was expected to see a bump in production with Quincy Enunwa out and Terrelle Pryor jettisoned earlier in the week, but he was invisible. Avoid him for fantasy purposes heading into Week 8 against the Bears.

  • Chris Herndon - TE - New York Jets
    Posted 10/21/18 2:54pm ET

    New York Jets TE Chris Herndon finished with four receptions for 42 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Week 7 against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Herndon started out a bit slow, but the rookie has managed six grabs for 98 yards on nine targets with two touchdowns over his past two outings. Tight end is such a shallow spot in fantasy that Herndon could emerge as a low-end TE1 if he keeps producing at this pace on a regular basis. The Jets meet the Bears on the road in Week 8.

  • Blake Bortles - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 10/21/18 2:52pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles went 6-for-12 for 61 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 7 before he was benched in favor of QB Cody Kessler.

    Huddle Up: Bortles has struggled over the last three weeks, and it is not known if he will be the starting quarterback in Week 8. Owners can monitor the situation during the week but should avoid the team's quarterback situation in all leagues.
