Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • George Kittle - TE - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 10/19/17 4:19pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (back, elbow) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Kittle has been targeted 17 times over the last two games and may receive a bigger role in the passing game. He should be owned in all leagues and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in some deeper leagues.

  • Pierre Garcon - WR - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 10/19/17 4:18pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Garcon will be working with a new starting quarterback this week but should continue to have a big role in the passing game. He has been targeted at least 10 times in four of the six games this season and can be considered a No. 3 receiver in most leagues.

  • Emmanuel Sanders - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/19/17 4:17pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) missed another practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: No surprise, as Sanders has already been ruled out for this weekend's matchup opposite the Chargers. Demaryius Thomas figures to see even more looks than usual, and might end up being one of the strongest DFS options at wide receiver. Additionally, Bennie Fowler will be a nice sleeper candidate for Week 7, as he could see around 10 targets on Sunday.

  • Demaryius Thomas - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/19/17 4:01pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (calf) was back at practice Thursday, Oct. 19, and got in a full session.

    Huddle Up: This should put Thomas in line to play on Sunday against the rival Chargers, and he'll have one of the best situations of any receiver this weekend with Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) sidelined. Owners can confidently fire up Thomas as their WR1, and he'll also be a strong DFS play, too, with more than 10 targets very likely coming his way.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 10/19/17 3:50pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Even though he's been limited, the fact that he's been able to practice both days indicates there should be no issue concerning him suiting up on Sunday. It's a tough matchup but obviously, Gordon needs to be started everywhere. Plus, Denver might not be as intimidating as they usually are after allowing a 100-yard effort to the far inferior Orleans Darkwa last Sunday night, providing hope Gordon can carve out a nice performance for his owners.

  • Keenan Allen - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 10/19/17 3:42pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (shoulder) was added to the injury report Thursday, Oct. 19, getting in a limited practice.

    Huddle Up: Despite being a late addition, this shouldn't affect Allen's status on Sunday, though he'll have a tough enough matchup anyway dealing with the always stingy Broncos defense. The six-year veteran is out to a sensational start after missing all but one game a year ago, as he's on pace for career highs in catches (88) and receiving yards (1,189). He should always be in the lineup no matter who his opponent is.

  • C.J. Prosise - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 10/19/17 3:38pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (ankle) practiced in full Thursday, Oct. 19, one day after he was a limited participant.

    Huddle Up: This should put Prosise on track to play Sunday against the Giants following a two-week absence, though he won't be a recommended option outside of the deeper formats. The Seahawks possess one of the messiest running game situations in all of football, so owners are probably better off waiting for some clarity as it pertains to Prosise's workload moving forward. The presence of Thomas Rawls and Eddie Lacy makes it hard to trust him at this moment.

  • Jameis Winston - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 10/19/17 3:02pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Winston is expected to do more during practice Friday, Oct. 20, but his status for Week 7 is still uncertain. There is a decent chance that he will be a game-time decision, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation. He will be a risky option if he plays and owners may want to consider healthier options for their lineups.

  • Blake Bortles - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 10/19/17 2:56pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars TE Blake Bortles (wrist) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Bortles is coming off a decent Week 6 performance but has only thrown for 1,068 yards so far this season. Owners should be able to find better options to used and can avoid Bortles.

  • Marqise Lee - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 10/19/17 2:44pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Owners should know more about Lee's status for Week 7 after practice Friday, Oct. 20. He could be a game-time decision this week, so owners will need other options available in case he is ruled out. Lee will be a risky option this week because of an injury but does have a favorable matchup if is in uniform against the Indianapolis Colts.

  • Matt Bryant - PK - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 10/19/17 2:39pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant (back) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Bryant missed practice yesterday, so the upgraded status is encouraging. He seems to be on pace to take the field on Sunday night, in which case he is a definitive No. 1 fantasy kicker.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 10/19/17 2:36pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: It's hard not to like any offensive player in the Atlanta Falcons - New England Patriots tilt. Sanu was playing well before succumbing to his hamstring injury in Week 4. If he's not on a snap count then he's worth a look as a WR3 or flex.

  • Chris Hogan - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 10/19/17 2:28pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (ribs) was a limited practice participant Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Hogan is coming off what was easily the worst game of his season so far. He has been a touchdown machine, though, and the forecast calls for plenty of touchdowns Sunday night versus the Atlanta Falcons. Assuming Hogan is good to go, he's a solid WR2 play in a potential scorcher.

  • Frank Gore - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 10/19/17 2:22pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore (non-injury) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Gore will continue to be the starting running back for the Colts but could lose some work to Marlon Mack later in the season. He has received at least 10 carries in every game this season but 57 yards is the most he has rushed for in a game this season. He can be benched this week if owners have better options available.

  • Jerick McKinnon - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 10/19/17 2:14pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon has taken the NFL by storm since he was integrated as the featured running back two weeks ago. In those games, he has averaged 122.5 total yards, 5.5 catches and 1.5 touchdowns. The Baltimore Ravens have been susceptible to the running game this year, too, so start McKinnon as a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2.

  • Ty Montgomery - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 10/19/17 2:12pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Montgomery received 11 touches last week and recorded only 31 total yards. He probably will continue to share work with Aaron Jones and may see some more targets in passing game. Owners can consider him a flex option in most fantasy leagues because of the favorable matchup.

  • Sam Bradford - QB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 10/19/17 2:09pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) missed practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: It seems as though Bradford will be sidelined for at least this week. He'll have some tough competition to best when he returns, too, with Teddy Bridgewater (knee) on the mend and Case Keenum playing well. Still, no Vikings quarterback can be trusted as a consistent weekly starter and Keenum is comfortably in QB2 territory this week versus a stingy Baltimore Ravens pass defense.

  • Stefon Diggs - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 10/19/17 2:03pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (groin) was unable to practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Diggs has already said his Week 7 status is up in the air after missing two practices in a row. On the apparent off chance he does play then he likely won't be full go. Have a contingency plan in place incase Diggs is inactive again.

  • Willie Snead - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 10/19/17 1:51pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Snead was targeted three times in the team's Week 6 game and could see a few more targets this week against a banged-up Green Bay Packers defense. He is still being worked into the offense but could be a possible flex option in some deeper leagues.

  • Jeremy Maclin - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 10/19/17 1:51pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens WR Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Despite being limited, Maclin is actually the healthiest relevant wide receiver on the Ravens at this point. That being said, it's risky to start him since he is not 100% and has not exceeded 50 yards or scored since Week 2.
