Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Phillip Dorsett - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/23/18 8:13pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (ankle) left the Week 3 game against the Detroit Lions due to an ankle injury. He returned on the final drive, but ended the night with no catches on five targets.

    Huddle Up: Dorsett had a golden chance to do something with just three receivers active for the game, but he couldn't get on the board. Now, Josh Gordon is waiting in the wings and Julian Edelman will return soon from a suspension. Dorsett never had a better chance to be fantasy relevant and now he'll be back toiling in obscurity.

  • Kerryon Johnson - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 9/23/18 8:10pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson rushed for 101 yards in Week 3 game against the New England Patriots to snap a 70-game drought for the franchise record without a rusher to go over 100 yards.

    Huddle Up: The rookie was sharp, showing tremendous elusiveness, vision and speed against the defending AFC champs. Johnson is the first running back in Honolulu Blue and Silver to top the century mark in a single game since Reggie Bush turned the trick on Thanksgiving 2013. The rookie Johnson will try to make it two in a row when the Lions hit the road to meet the Cowboys in Week 4.

  • Jordan Matthews - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/23/18 7:56pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews posted two catches for 21 yards on two targets in Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Matthews just isn't doing enough to warrant fantasy consideration outside of the deepest of leagues. The Eagles travel to meet the Titans in Week 4.

  • Nelson Agholor - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/23/18 7:46pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor posted four receptions for 24 yards on five targets in the Week 3 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Agholor hauled in eight receptions in each of his first two games with Nick Foles, so he might be one of the only people sad to see Carson Wentz back under center. For his overall fantasy appeal the return of Wentz is obvious good, but he had a nice rapport with Foles and took a step back in this one.

  • Rex Burkhead - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/23/18 7:43pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (neck) left the Week 3 game against the Detroit Lions due to a neck injury and he was taken to the locker room for further evaluation.

    Huddle Up: Burkhead was injured in the third quarter after managing a total of just two touches. It's been Sony Michel and James White handling the work, with a bulk of the carries going to Michel.

  • Zach Ertz - TE - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/23/18 7:36pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz posted five receptions for 73 yards on a team-best 10 targets in Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Carson Wentz was back under center in his season debut and he loves his tight ends. Ertz and rookie Dallas Goedert combined for 12 catches for 146 yards and a touchdown on 17 targets, while all of the other players totals just 13 grabs and 109 yards on 20 targets. Ertz remains an obvious TE1 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 4 at Tennessee.

  • Dallas Goedert - TE - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/23/18 7:32pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert racked up a team-high seven receptions for 73 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Goedert was on the same page with Carson Wentz, who was making his season debut. He and Zach Ertz totaled 12 receptions for 146 yards and a score on 17 targets, while the rest of the team had just 13 catches, 109 yards and 20 targets. Wentz loves his tight ends, and Goedert and Ertz have nice fantasy appeal going forward. The Eagles travel to meet the Titans in Week 4.

  • Corey Clement - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/23/18 7:30pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Corey Clement rushed 16 times for 56 yards in the Week 3 game against the Indianapolis Colts and he added three grabs for 19 yards.

    Huddle Up: Clement and Wendell Smallwood basically split the tailback touches down the middle with Jay Ajayi and Darren Sproles on the shelf, and each has RB3 or flex fantasy option going forward as long as those two remains sidelined.

  • Wendell Smallwood - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/23/18 7:24pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood rushed 10 times for 56 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts and he added three receptions for 35 yards.

    Huddle Up: Smallwood led the Philly backs with 91 total yards from scrimmage and the only TD, stepping up with Jay Ajayi and Darren Sproles on the shelf. He split the work with Corey Clement and proved he can get it done when his number is called. He is more of a RB3 or flex fantasy option as long as Ajayi and Sproles are both sidelined.

  • Carson Wentz - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/23/18 7:19pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) completed 25-of-37 passes for 255 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 3 win against the Indianapolis Colts in his season debut.

    Huddle Up: Wentz made it through the game without any setbacks and he even ran three times for 10 yards to test out his injury. The quarterback also had plenty of heat, as he was dropped five times by the Colts D, but again, no setbacks. The Eagles meet the Titans in Nashville in Week 4.

  • Eric Ebron - TE - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/23/18 7:12pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron finished with five receptions for 33 yards on 11 targets in the Week 3 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: Andrew Luck looked to Ebron early and often in the road loss, but they just weren't able to hook up more than five times. Still, it's a good sign for Ebron, as he was targeted a bunch with Jack Doyle on the mend. As long as Doyle is out, Ebron could sneak into TE1 range. The Colts host the Texans in Week 4.

  • Ryan Grant - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/23/18 7:10pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR Ryan Grant posted three receptions for 35 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: Grant has posted 13 receptions for 125 yards and a touchdown on 15 targets through three outings. Treat him more as a WR5 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 4 against the Texans.

  • T.Y. Hilton - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/23/18 7:07pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton posted five receptions for a team-best 50 yards and 10 targets in Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: Hilton shook off a quadriceps injury to play. While his modest touchdown streak to start the season ended at two games, he has five or more catches in each of his three outings. He remains a solid WR2 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 4 against the Texans.

  • Nyheim Hines - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/23/18 7:05pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Nyheim Hines rushed five times for 18 yards and he added five receptions for 25 yards on five targets in the Week 3 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Hines actually led all Indy backs in total touches, although his stat line certainly wasn't anything to write home about. However, it appears his preseason and training camp fumbling issues are behind him and perhaps he'll seize the starting job since no one is stepping up for it. The Colts host the Texans in Week 4.

  • Jordan Wilkins - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/23/18 7:03pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Jordan Wilkins rushed six times for just 19 yards in Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: Wilkins had a strong training camp and preseason, and it was believed he might get off to a hot start with Marlon Mack sidelined. However, he has not made much of a splash in fantasy and can mostly be left to the waiver wire at this point. The Colts host the winless Texans in Week 4.

  • Andrew Luck - QB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/23/18 7:00pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck completed 25-of-40 passes for 164 yards, a touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 3 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: It wasn't a great performance, and Luck would benefit from a helpful run game. He actually led the team with 33 rush yards, which isn't optimal. He'll look for better results in Week 4 against the winless Houston Texans.

  • Kenny Stills - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/23/18 6:29pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills posted three receptions for 61 yards and a touchdown on a team-high five targets in Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: Stills bounced back nicely after laying an egg on the road in last week's road game against the Jets. He has seven grabs, 10 targets and 167 yards with three scores in two home games, and two grabs for just 17 yards with no scores in a road game. The Dolphins are on the road against the Patriots in Week 4.

  • Jakeem Grant - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/23/18 6:27pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Jakeem Grant posted two receptions for 70 yard and two touchdowns in Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders on three targets.

    Huddle Up: One of Grant's TDs came from fellow wideout Albert Wilson, who hit him on a 52-yard trick play for score. Grant has exceptional speed, but he needs more targets if he is going to be considered anything more than a WR4 in most fantasy leagues. The Dolphins meet the Patriots in Week 4.

  • Albert Wilson - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/23/18 6:22pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Albert Wilson had two receptions for a team-high 74 yard and a touchdown in Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders and he threw a 52-yard touchdown on a trick play.

    Huddle Up: Wilson is the fourth player in NFL history to post a TD pass and a TD reception of at least 50 yards in a game, joining Hall of Famer Jimmy Conzelman (1923), Tom Tracy (1960) and David Patten (2001). Despite the impressive stat line, Wilson is still more of a WR5 in most fantasy leagues due to his lack of targets. The Dolphins travel to meet the Patriots in Week 4.

  • Kenyan Drake - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/23/18 6:18pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake posted just three yards on five rushes in Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders and he added two receptions for seven yards on four targets.

    Huddle Up: Drake was viewed as a fantasy sleeper heading into the season, but he was just asleep in this one. Drake has 104 rushing yards on 30 carries with one score, and nine grabs for 42 yards with no touchdowns through three games. Right now he is nothing more than a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 4 until he starts to get going.
