Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Mike Williams - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 11/23/17 1:57pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (leg) was carted to the locker room Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: It's unclear how serious the injury is, but it's never good when a player is carted off and Williams has dealt with injuries all season. Expect him to be out for the game. If he's out longer, Travis Benjamin and Tyrell Williams will have increased value.

  • Charles Clay - TE - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 11/23/17 1:53pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been dealing with the injury for most of the season but was able to play in Week 12. He has recorded at least 50 receiving yards in only two games this season and should be considered a No. 2 tight end in most fantasy leagues.

  • Jordan Matthews - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 11/23/17 1:49pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Matthews did not play last week but may have a better chance to play in Week 12. He has been held to 21 yards or less in four of the last five games and would not be a strong fantasy option if he plays in the game.

  • Marvin Jones - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 11/23/17 1:40pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones caught six passes for 109 yards and two touchdowns in a Week 12 loss to the Minnesota Vikings Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Jones was really the lone bright spot for the Lions on offense. He scored their only two touchdowns, including a masterful catch on a deep ball in double-coverage. With five touchdowns in his last four games, Jones is a mainstay in WR2 territory.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 11/23/17 1:38pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin is considered day-to-day and could be a game-time decision for Week 12. He is a risky option because of the injury and that he has not received a lot of work in the offense. Owners may want to avoid him this week even if he is active for the game.

  • Matthew Stafford - QB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 11/23/17 1:35pm ET

    Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford gutted out a 250-yard, two-touchdown performance in a loss to the Detroit Lions Thursday, Nov. 23. Unfortunately, he also committed two turnovers (one fumble and one interception).

    Huddle Up: Stafford was clicking with Marvin Jones in this contest, but that's about it. He was frequently under pressure and suffered an ankle injury late in the game, but came back in. Despite the disappointing outing, he remains a QB1 option for the rest of 2017.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/23/17 1:33pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (illness) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski continues to be one of the best tight ends in the NFL and is a must-start option in all leagues as long as he is healthy.

  • Kyle Rudolph - TE - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 11/23/17 1:30pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph scored both of the Vikings' receiving touchdowns Thursday, Nov. 23, catching four passes for 63 yards in total.

    Huddle Up: Rudolph nearly doubled his touchdowns just in this game; he had only caught three on the season. There hasn't been enough love to go around between Rudolph, Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, but Rudolph made his catches matter today. He'll remain a TE1 play as long as he's healthy.

  • Danny Amendola - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/23/17 1:30pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Amendola should be in uniform against the Miami Dolphins as long as he does not suffer a setback. He is coming off a terrific Week 11 performance and should receive a solid amount of targets against the Dolphins. Amendola should be at least a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Tom Brady - QB - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/23/17 1:28pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (Achilles') was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Brady is expected to be able to play in Week 12 despite the injury and is a must-start option in every league.

  • Latavius Murray - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 11/23/17 1:26pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray notched 20 carries for 84 yards and a touchdown Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Murray has been on a roll, now scoring four times in his last three outings. His main value is in standard leagues as he has only caught seven passes on the year. Still, he needs to be in the RB2 conversation going forward.

  • Case Keenum - QB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 11/23/17 1:22pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum totaled 302 yards and three touchdowns in a Thanksgiving win versus the Detroit Lions Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Keenum made a strong case for keeping the starting job away from Teddy Bridgewater. He has done nothing to force the Vikings' hand in making Bridgewater the starter, but he has forced us to consider him as a weekly starter.

  • Martellus Bennett - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/23/17 1:22pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (hamstring, shoulder) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Bennett probably will be active for the game even though he is not participating in practice, but owners should monitor the situation. He has recorded six catches for 53 yards in two games since returning to the Patriots and probably should be avoided in most leagues.

  • Chris Hogan - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 11/23/17 1:18pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: It appears like Hogan will miss another game, so owners should look for other options to use in their lineups. Brandin Cooks and Danny Amendola likely will receive most of the targets among the receivers and could be used in fantasy leagues this week.

  • Matt Forte - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 11/23/17 1:10pm ET

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) was not able to practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: It doesn't look like Forte will be suiting up this weekend, which means Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire will comprise the two-man backfield again. Powell disappointed in his last game, but he's still a flex option at worst and has more value in PPR leagues.

  • Jacoby Brissett - QB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 11/23/17 1:04pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett (concussion) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Brissett should be able to play in Week 12 as long as he is cleared by the doctors. He has thrown for six touchdowns in the last three games and for at least 200 yards in each of the last six games. He could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues if he is active.

  • Jay Cutler - QB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 11/23/17 1:00pm ET

    Miami Dolphins QB Jay Cutler (concussion) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Assuming Cutler doesn't regress over the next couple of days, one figures he would start in Week 12. Cutler has an amazing matchup versus the New England Patriots, but his erratic play puts him in QB2 territory.

  • Frank Gore - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 11/23/17 12:50pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore (non-injury) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Gore has been receiving practices off during the season and should be able to play in Week 12. He has posted consistent numbers this season but has rushed for more than 60 yards only once in 10 games. Gore can be a flex option on some leagues but could also be benched if owners have better options available.

  • Matthew Stafford - QB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 11/23/17 12:45pm ET

    Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (ankle) remained in the game Thursday, Nov. 23, after suffering an ankle injury on a touchdown pass to WR Marvin Jones.

    Huddle Up: Stafford will toughen it out after what appeared to be a nasty injury on a low hit. He has played well so far and should be viewed as a borderline QB1 for the remainder of the season.

  • Blake Bortles - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 11/23/17 12:40pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Bortles had a disappointing Week 11 performance but has thrown five touchdowns in the last five games. He probably should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues this week.
