Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Blake Bortles - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 2/25/18 9:06am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) said he is on schedule in his recovery from offseason wrist surgery and should be fully cleared by early March.

    Huddle Up: Bortles played well at times this season and will have some value in fantasy leagues next season. He can be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterbacks in most leagues but has the chance to be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

  • Eli Rogers - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 2/25/18 7:57am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Eli Rogers (knee) has established a goal of being ready to participate in training camp, although no official timetable has been set for his return from surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He said that he is in 'the second phase' of his rehab process and added that he has range of motion back. Rogers began walking without the aid of crutches last week and recently started riding a bicycle and using an arc trainer.

    Huddle Up: Rogers is an unrestricted free agent but if he returns to Pittsburgh next season, he is slated to be the team's fourth receiver. He should go undrafted in the majority of fantasy formats but could be worthy of consideration as a waiver wire option during the year.

  • Allen Robinson - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 2/24/18 8:33pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars impending free-agent WR Allen Robinson (knee) sent out a video on Twitter that showed himself jogging on the field.

    Huddle Up: Coming off knee surgery, there is a chance Robinson receives the franchise tag while the Jaguars try to figure out if he can still be a go-to option. There is some risk with any player coming off a major injury, but Robinson has WR2 upside and could be available for a WR3 price.

  • Odell Beckham - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 2/24/18 8:16pm ET

    New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) sent out a tweet Saturday, Feb. 24, indicating that he is unlikely to play in any preseason games.

    Huddle Up: Beckham is still expected to be ready for the start of the 2018 season, and despite the fact that drama seems to follow him around, he still needs to be treated as a WR1.

  • Tarik Cohen - RB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 2/24/18 7:27pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen said he can do 'the same kinds of things' as Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill, and he feels he will develop into a playmaker under offensive coordinator Matt Nagy.

    Huddle Up: Nagy was the offensive coordinator for the Chiefs last year, so if there's anyone who should be able to maximize Cohen's speed and versatility, it's Nagy. Cohen flashed at times in 2017, and he projects as a RB4 with upside, especially in PPR formats, heading into next season.

  • Danny Amendola - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 2/24/18 6:24pm ET

    New England Patriots impending free-agent WR Danny Amendola will likely re-sign with the Patriots if he decides to play another season, in the opinion of Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com.

    Huddle Up: Amendola had another impressive run in the playoffs, but he is injury prone and has never put up big numbers during the regular season. He is valuable to New England's offense, but he is no more than a WR5 for fantasy owners.

  • Blake Bortles - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 2/24/18 4:30pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles agreed to a new three-year contract with the Jaguars Saturday, Feb. 24, worth $54 million, according to a source. The deal includes $26 million in guaranteed money and could be worth as much as $66.5 million with incentives.

    Huddle Up: Bortles improved his play in 2017 and will have most of his receivers back next season. He should be at least a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues and has a chance to low-end No. 1 quarterback in some deeper leagues.

  • Blake Bortles - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 2/24/18 4:28pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles is close to agreeing to a multi-year contract extension with the Jaguars that will run through the 2020 season, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Bortles played well during the second half of the season and also posted good numbers during the playoffs. He will have a solid receiving corps to work with next season and can be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues and possibly a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

  • Jake Butt - TE - Denver Broncos
    Posted 2/24/18 3:15pm ET

    Denver Broncos TE Jake Butt (knee) likely will work with the first-team offense during offseason workouts.

    Huddle Up: Butt missed the entire 2017 season because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see what role Butt will have in the passing game. He could be a No. 2 fantasy tight end in deeper leagues.

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 2/24/18 2:27pm ET

    Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman may take more touches from RB Lamar Miller next season and could take over as the team's top running back, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Sarah Barshop.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Foreman is named the starting running back before the season. Foreman was limited to 10 games in 2017 and finished with 327 yards and two touchdowns. He can be a No. 3 running back in standard leagues if he leads the team in carries.

  • Corey Grant - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 2/24/18 12:30pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Corey Grant could receive a bigger role on offense next season with RB Chris Ivory no longer on the team, in the opinion of The Florida Times-Union's Ryan O'Halloran.

    Huddle Up: Grant played well during the playoffs and could have a role in the running and passing game. He could be a late-round option in deeper leagues.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 2/24/18 12:04pm ET

    The Buffalo Bills had interest in acquiring Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant during the regular season.

    Huddle Up: The Bills acquired Kelvin Benjamin before the trade deadline, so they may not be interested in Bryant anymore. Bryant could be traded at some point this offseason but can be considered at least a No. 4 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 2/24/18 11:42am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant has not had any contract extension talks with the Steelers. He is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent next offseason.

    Huddle Up: Bryant asked for a trade during the regular season, so he could be moved this offseason if the Steelers receive a solid offer for him. Bryant has the potential to be a solid fantasy receiver and could be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver depending on his situation.

  • Torrey Smith - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 2/24/18 11:41am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR Torrey Smith said he expects to be back with the Eagles next season even though the team would save $5 million in salary cap space if he is released.

    Huddle Up: Smith finished the 2017 season with 430 yards and two touchdowns but may need to find a new team this offseason. He has some fantasy value because of his big-play potential but probably would only be a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver in most leagues.

  • Blake Bortles - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 2/23/18 6:47pm ET

    The Jacksonville Jaguars are actively pursuing upgrades to QB Blake Bortles, according to a league source.

    Huddle Up: If Bortles ends up entering 2018 as the starter, he's a worthwhile fantasy backup. He has topped 20 touchdowns in each of the last three seasons and is sneaky effective as a runner.

  • Jarvis Landry - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 2/23/18 6:36pm ET

    The Tennessee Titans could trade for Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

    Huddle Up: Eric Decker was a bust free-agent signing for the Titans last year, and Landry would fill the slot role and then some. Wherever Landry ends up, he should be WR2 in PPR formats.

  • Devin Funchess - WR - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 2/23/18 6:14pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess, WR Curtis Samuel and WR Damiere Byrd are the only receivers who should feel safe entering the 2018 season, according to David Newton of ESPN.com, and Newton believes the receiving corps could undergo a complete overhaul.

    Huddle Up: The Panthers could use a true No. 1 receiver, but unless they make a move in free agency, Funchess would be the go-to guy with WR2 potential in 2018.

  • Dez Bryant - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 2/23/18 4:25pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant said the Cowboys have not asked him to take a pay cut at this point. He said he can't see himself playing for another team.

    Huddle Up: Bryant had a disappointing 2017 season, so it is not known if he will be back with the Cowboys next season. Bryant has the ability to be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver next season despite his stats this year.

  • Emmanuel Sanders - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 2/23/18 1:20pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) said his rehab is going well and believes his ankle is at around 95 percent.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor Sanders' situation this offseason to see if he will stay with the Broncos or if he will join a new team. He has been a solid receiver over the last few years and can be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy receiver in 2018.

  • Trey Burton - TE - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 2/23/18 11:39am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent TE Trey Burton reportedly recently received a contract offer he 'didn't consider serious' and is expected to sign with another team when free agency begin in March, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Burton may not have been much of a household name prior to his role in the 'Philly Special,' but he may be the league's best-kept secret at the position and will likely fetch a sizeable contract on the open market. A highly athletic former college quarterback, Burton has fantasy TE1 upside if he finds a decent landing spot in free agency.
