Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Adam Thielen - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 12/13/17 2:18pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (knee) was able to work on a limited basis in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Thielen has three 100-yard games over his past five outings and he has scored four times in the past six contests. He has emerged as a dependable flex option in standard fantasy play, and as an excellent WR2 in PPR formats. He has four or more grabs in all 13 games this season.

  • Jerick McKinnon - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 12/13/17 2:18pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon has taken a backseat to Latavius Murray in recent weeks, totaling 14 touches in Week 13 and just nine total touches in Week 14 while managing 107 total yards from scrimmage over the past two outings. He was able to find the end zone once, which is nice, but he is more of a RB4 in deeper fantasy leagues at the moment.

  • Mike Wallace - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 12/13/17 2:05pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 13, due to an ankle issue.

    Huddle Up: Wallace has a couple of more days to get himself right. He has actually been a decent WR4 over the past couple of games, posting eight grabs for 188 yards over the past two games, although he hasn't scored in three straight outings.

  • Nathan Peterman - QB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/13/17 1:54pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Nathan Peterman (concussion) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Peterman looks less likely to play than Tyrod Taylor (knee), who was back as a full participant. It appears Peterman is going to be the backup against the Miami Dolphins and has no fantasy appeal at this time.

  • Charles Clay - TE - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/13/17 1:53pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been relatively quiet since returning from a multi-week injury, putting up stat lines similar to those a TE2 would post. He hasn't found the end zone in five games since his return, and he has just 14 catches for 131 yards during the span.

  • Kerwynn Williams - RB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 12/13/17 1:49pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Kerwynn Williams (ribs) put in a full practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Williams has averaged 18 carries over his last two games but has yet to score more than 10 fantasy points. He should continue to start with Adrian Peterson sidelined, but don't view him as more than a standard low-end RB2 or flex.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 12/13/17 1:46pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (non-injury related) was given the day off of practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Fitzgerald's fantasy ceiling is lower with Blaine Gabbert, but he actually hasn't lost too much value. He's still seeing plenty of targets and has scored twice in his last four games. He's in low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 territory,

  • Frank Gore - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 12/13/17 1:32pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore (rest, hand) was able to practice in full Wednesday, Dec. 13, and he has been removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 15 game against the Denver Broncos on Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Gore will be facing the league's third-ranked rush defense, as Denver allows just 89.5 yards per game on the ground with six rushing touchdowns and seven runs of 20 or more yards. The six TDs are tied for second-lowest in the NFL. Treat Gore more as a RB3 or flex play in Week 15.

  • Jacoby Brissett - QB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 12/13/17 1:31pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett (quadriceps) practiced in full Wednesday, Dec. 13, and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 15 game against the Denver Broncos on Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Brissett will face the NFL's second-ranked pass defense, at least in terms of yardage. Denver allows just 191.1 yards per game through the air to rank No. 2 in the NFL, but they have allowed 26 touchdowns which is the most in the league, and 38 pass plays of 20 or more yards. Brissett remains a QB2 in most fantasy formats for this matchup.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 12/13/17 1:25pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) may not play again this season as head coach Bruce Arians said he has 'no idea' if Peterson will recover from his neck injury in time.

    Huddle Up: Arians didn't exactly take a glass-half-full approach with Peterson's status. He didn't even mention Peterson being able to practice soon. In the meantime, Kerwynn Williams and D.J. Foster will continue to man the backfield. Williams is no more than a flex dart.

  • Tyler Kroft - TE - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 12/13/17 12:51pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Kroft (hamstring) was sidelined at practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Kroft is coming off a goose egg in Week 14 and has to overcome a hamstring issue in order to rebound from it. He's too risky to start as a TE1 and he's no longer a fill-in for Rob Gronkowski and Zach Ertz, who are returning.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 12/13/17 12:47pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: It looks like there will be a heavy dose of Bernard again this week as Mixon is still in the concussion protocol. Both players' statuses will need to be monitored, but for now deploy Bernard as an RB2.

  • Amari Cooper - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 12/13/17 12:26pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) was not able to practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Cooper could be hampered on Saturday even if he is able to play. The fact that the Raiders do play on Saturday means he'll have one less day to heal up too. Considering the injury and the struggles he's had this year, Cooper is a risky WR2 and is better suited as a flex.

  • Zach Ertz - TE - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 12/13/17 12:10pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (concussion) practiced fully Wednesday, Dec. 13, in his return from the concussion protocol.

    Huddle Up: Obviously the fantasy value of Ertz and company isn't as high without Carson Wentz, but Ertz can serve as a safety blanket and go-to red-zone target for Nick Foles. Even more reason to start Ertz is that the New York Giants are the worst fantasy defense against tight ends this year.

  • Kyle Rudolph - TE - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 12/13/17 10:18am ET

    Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) was spotted in a walking boot Wednesday, Dec. 13. Head coach Mike Zimmer told reporters he'll know more about Rudolph's availability for Week 15 against the Cincinnati Bengals later in the week.

    Huddle Up: Rudolph sat out the final few plays of Week 14 with the injury. While his receptions are down from the career-high 83 he had last season, Rudolph is having another fine season and on a three-game scoring streak. If he cannot play, David Morgan and Blake Bell are the next men up, although neither one would be worth considering in the fantasy playoffs.

  • Joe Mixon - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 12/13/17 8:37am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (concussion) remains in the concussion protocol Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: If he makes it back, he'll have a tough matchup against the Minnesota Vikings as a low-end RB2.

  • Ameer Abdullah - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 12/13/17 8:03am ET

    Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) is expected to return in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Abdullah may take a backseat to the scorching-hot Theo Riddick against the Chicago Bears, who pose a tough matchup against the RB position. Abdullah is a flex option, but he's far from a sure thing.

  • Zach Ertz - TE - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 12/13/17 7:34am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (concussion) cleared the concussion protocol Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Ertz has a good matchup against the New York Giants, and with Nick Foles taking over at quarterback, Ertz should be busy. He's a great TE1 option this week.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/13/17 7:33am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) will be limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin reached the end zone last week, but he's a really volatile flex option against the Miami Dolphins.

  • Tyrod Taylor - QB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/13/17 6:48am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) is expected to receive most of the repetitions Wednesday, Dec. 13, and he's expected to start in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Taylor isn't a starting option in fantasy against the Miami Dolphins.
