Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Dez Bryant - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 5/23/18 8:17pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said he does not expect the Packers to sign free-agent WR Dez Bryant (Cowboys) this offseason.

    Huddle Up: Bryant has not received a lot of interest since being cut and rejected the only offer he has received. He may need to wait until training camp to sign with a team. He can still be a solid receiver and has a chance to be a No. 3 fantasy receiver in 2018.

  • Rishard Matthews - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 5/23/18 7:24pm ET

    Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews (undisclosed) is dealing with a minor undisclosed injury but should return to the field before offseason workouts end.

    Huddle Up: Matthews will be one of the starting receivers for the Titans and will have a solid role in the passing game. He can be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver for fantasy owners in 2018.

  • Andrew Luck - QB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 5/23/18 7:05pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) did not throw during organized team activities Wednesday, May 23, and head coach Frank Reich said he is not sure if Luck will throw before the end of June minicamp but is confident that Luck will ramp things up in time for training camp.

    Huddle Up: Owners will continue to monitor the situation to see when Luck will be able to throw again. He is one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL when he is healthy but will be a risky option for fantasy owners in 2018. Owners that select him will need very good backup options on their roster.

  • Josh Rosen - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 5/23/18 6:52pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks said he has not ruled out QB Josh Rosen being the starting quarterback this upcoming season.

    Huddle Up: Sam Bradford is considered the Cardinals' starting quarterback at this point, but Rosen could outperform Bradford during training camp. Owners should monitor the situation during camp because Rosen could be a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues if he wins the job.

  • Baker Mayfield - QB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 5/23/18 6:42pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield threw three interceptions during organized team activities Wednesday, May 23, with two of the three interceptions tipping off receivers' hands.

    Huddle Up: Mayfield is currently the No. 3 quarterback for the Browns but should move up the depth chart during training camp. He may not be the starting quarterback for the opener but has a decent chance to start at some point in 2018. He will be a popular pick in keeper leagues but can be avoided in standard leagues.

  • Albert Wilson - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 5/23/18 6:10pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Albert Wilson said he has lined up as an outside receiver as well as a slot receiver during organized team activities.

    Huddle Up: Wilson probably will serve as the No. 3 or No. 4 receiver for the Dolphins this season and should see a decent amount of targets. He could be a late-round option in deeper leagues but may go undrafted in most leagues.

  • Frank Gore - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 5/23/18 6:03pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Frank Gore likely will not participate in many team drills during offseason workouts, according to head coach Adam Gase.

    Huddle Up: The team probably wants to keep Gore fresh for the regular season, so Kenyan Drake should receive plenty of work during workouts. Gore will share playing time with Drake but could see a majority of the carries. Gore has a chance to be a No. 3 or No. 4 back for fantasy owners.

  • Duke Johnson - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 5/23/18 5:40pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson said that he is in discussions with the team about a contract extension and he's 'very optimistic' the two sides will come to an agreement.

    Huddle Up: Although the Browns signed Carlos Hyde to replace Isaiah Crowell in the backfield, that doesn't mean Johnson won't continue to have a valuable role. In his third NFL season last year, the 24-year-old only accumulated 348 yards on the ground on 82 carries, but he also scored four rushing touchdowns, not to mention while recording career bests in receiving yards, catches and touchdowns through the air. He can be a sneaky good RB2, especially in PPR formats.

  • Ryan Tannehill - QB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 5/23/18 11:34am ET

    Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) is fully cleared for all football activities as of last week. Tannehill no longer wears a knee brace and said he's feeling 'really good right now' after recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament he suffered two years ago.

    Huddle Up: Tannehill hasn't played football since 2016 and only played 13 games then. Even when he's healthy he's not a reliable fantasy starter, not to mention the sizable injury risk. At best he's a bye-week fill-in.

  • Anthony Miller - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 5/23/18 8:18am ET

    Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller is earmarked to be the slot receiver in the offense.

    Huddle Up: Miller is coming off a foot injury, and they'll be cautious with him in camp. He has a chance to be a buzzworthy WR5 flyer.

  • Antonio Gates - TE - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 5/22/18 11:43pm ET

    The Los Angeles Chargers are likely to consider re-signing free-agent TE Antonio Gates, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Gates had previously been told he would not be brought back, but TE Hunter Henry (knee) suffered what's believed to be a season-ending knee injury Tuesday, May 22.

    Huddle Up: Gates, who is currently unsigned, has spent all 15 of his seasons with the Chargers, so he knows the offense and has the trust of Philip Rivers. If Gates is brought back and looks poised to be the primary pass catcher at the tight end position he could have some TE2 value and maybe even a little upside.

  • Hunter Henry - TE - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 5/22/18 6:47pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry (knee) suffered a torn ACL during a drill in OTAs on Tuesday, May 22. While he is scheduled to get a second opinion Wednesday, May 23, he is expected to miss the 2018 season.

    Huddle Up: It's a crushing blow for the Chargers and fantasy owners alike, as Henry was primed to take the next step into the elite group of tight ends this season with Antonio Gates no longer around. While they could see if Gates is in interested in a reunion, this injury leaves Virgil Green atop the depth chart for now. Assuming things stay the same as they are now, the Chargers may utilize more three- and four-wide sets.

  • Jerick McKinnon - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 5/22/18 5:08pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Jerick McKinnon caught several passes out of the backfield from Jimmy Garoppolo and looked 'very comfortable,' according to the Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows.

    Huddle Up: Perhaps the most interesting nugget from Barrows was his prediction for McKinnon's catch total, which he set the over/under at 73 - the same number Devonta Freeman had in his breakout season (2015) under then-offensive coordinator (and current San Francisco head coach) Kyle Shanahan. It's an ambitious number, but it is also a realistic one for a player as gifted in the passing game as McKinnon. If he proves he can hold up to the workload, McKinnon could push for a top-five finish at running back in fantasy.

  • Mike Evans - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 5/22/18 3:36pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is focused on improving his awareness and his yards after catch heading into his fifth season. 'I've got another hurdle to jump over, and I think I'll be much better this year,' Evans said. 'I've got to do better in [yards after catch], and I think if I do, I'll be the most complete receiver.'

    Huddle Up: Four years in a row now Evans has reached at least 1,000 yards. His touchdowns were down last year, but Tampa Bay's offense as a whole sputtered based on expectations. Still, Evans is an elite wide receiver, worthy of WR1 consideration.

  • Amari Cooper - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 5/22/18 1:00pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (hamstring) left organized team activities early Tuesday, May 22, with a hamstring ailment, according to head coach Jon Gruden.

    Huddle Up: This will need some monitoring, but it doesn't sound like the issue is overly concerning. Gruden has already said Cooper will be the focus of the offense in 2017. For now, Cooper has low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 appeal.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 5/22/18 12:10pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones is expected to be present at minicamp after skipping organized team activities, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: OTAs are voluntary, after all, and it's not uncommon for important, veteran players to miss them. Jones remains one of the top three wide receivers in the NFL and should be drafted as such.

  • Deshaun Watson - QB - Houston Texans
    Posted 5/22/18 11:54am ET

    Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson (knee) has made significant progress in his rehabilitation from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and is considered ahead of schedule.

    Huddle Up: Watson is coming along nicely. Don't look too much into him not participating in OTAs. As long as he stays on the path he's on he'll be good to go for the regular season. Draft him as a No. 1 fantasy quarterback.

  • Davante Adams - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 5/22/18 11:32am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (hamstring) did not participate in organized team activities Tuesday, May 22.

    Huddle Up: It doesn't sound like it will take long for Adams to get back to 100%, assuming no setbacks. He's a legitimate WR1 candidate.

  • Sam Darnold - QB - New York Jets
    Posted 5/22/18 8:49am ET

    New York Jets QB Sam Darnold has received all 16 repetitions in 11-on-11 drills in organized team activities Tuesday, May 22.

    Huddle Up: It doesn't really mean anything as he is the new car in the garage. However, he could end up winning the job, and he's worthy of QB2 consideration in fantasy.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 5/22/18 8:42am ET

    New York Jets WR Terrelle Pryor (ankle) suffered another ankle injury this offseason, and he's not participating in organized team activities Tuesday, May 22.

    Huddle Up: Pryor deal with ankle issues last year and had surgery in November, so this is concerning for the potential WR3 in fantasy.
