Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Tyler Eifert - TE - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 1/19/18 6:23pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer gives Eifert a 10 percent chance of re-signing with the Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Eifert has been a force in the red zone when healthy, but he hasn't been able to stay on the field. Wherever he plays in 2018, he will be a high-risk, high-reward TE2.

  • Robby Anderson - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 1/19/18 1:49pm ET

    New York Jets WR Robby Anderson was arrested in Florida Friday, Jan. 19, and is facing nine charges including reckless driving, eluding police, resisting arrest and harm to a public servant or family member.

    Huddle Up: Anderson likely will be facing a suspension from the NFL since he has been arrested twice in the last eight months. It is not known if he will stay with the Jets, so owners should monitor the situation. He played well this season but will be a risky option for owners next season because of the possible suspension.

  • Blake Bortles - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 1/19/18 1:31pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 19, and is not on the injury report for the AFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Bortles had a solid second half of the season and has posted decent numbers in the playoffs but will be facing a good New England Patriots defense in the championship game. He may not be asked to throw much during the game and can be a considered a risky fantasy option for owners.

  • Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 1/19/18 1:22pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) were limited during practice Friday, Jan. 19, and is not on the injury report for the AFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Fournette should receive his normal workload and will be a big part of the team's offense against the New England Patriots. He should be a No. 1 fantasy running back in all leagues this week.

  • Mike Gillislee - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/19/18 1:14pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 19, and is listed as questionable for the AFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Gillislee has not played in several weeks and could be inactive again even though he has been participating in practice. He would only see limited touches if he plays and would not be a strong fantasy option.

  • Rex Burkhead - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/19/18 1:07pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 19, and is listed as questionable for the AFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Burkhead appears to have a decent chance to play in the championship game, but owners will need to check the inactive list for his official status. He would have a role in the rushing and passing game if he plays and could be a flex option in fantasy leagues.

  • Tom Brady - QB - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/19/18 1:06pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (hand) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 19, and is listed as questionable for the AFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Brady should be able to play against the Jacksonville Jaguars despite being listed as questionable. He will have a tough matchup this week but can still be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in a majority of fantasy leagues.

  • Eli Rogers - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 1/19/18 12:50pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Eli Rogers (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament during the Divisional Round playoff game.

    Huddle Up: Rogers may not be ready for the start of the 2018 season, so owners should monitor his status during the offseason. He will be the team's No. 4 receiver when he returns and will not be a great fantasy option.

  • Adam Thielen - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 1/19/18 11:07am ET

    Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (back) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 19, and is listed as questionable for the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Thielen appears to have a good chance to play against the Philadelphia Eagles, but owners will need to check the inactive list to make sure. He is a solid part of the Vikings passing game and would be at least a No. 2 fantasy option if he plays.

  • Adam Thielen - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 1/19/18 9:28am ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (back) is taking part in practice Friday, Jan. 19.

    Huddle Up: Thielen will be a low-end WR1 or a high-end WR2 against the Philadelphia Eagles in playoff formats.

  • Jeremy Hill - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 1/19/18 8:51am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill is likely to leave via free agency, in the opinion of beat writers Jim Owczarski and Paul Dehner Jr.

    Huddle Up: Hill will be entering his age-26 season and had 29 touchdowns through his first three seasons before taking a step back last season. He could be an RB2 in most situations.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 1/19/18 6:51am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell showed up five minutes before the walkthrough ended Saturday, Jan. 13, before the Steelers were beaten by the Jacksonville Jaguars. He and a coach were also late to report to the stadium before the game.

    Huddle Up: Bell is supremely talented, but there is luggage to tote with that designer bag. He could see the franchise tag as a free agent, but he'll be an elite RB1 wherever he plays.

  • Nick Foles - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/18/18 8:47pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles is the first quarterback in NFL history to register a passer rating of 100 or more in each of his first two career playoff starts (minimum of 30 attempts), with the first one coming during the 2013 season and the most recent being the team's Divisional Round win Saturday, Jan. 13, against the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: Foles may have a pair of impressive postseason performances under his belt but that shouldn't be a distraction from the fact that Philadelphia has averaged just 17 points per game in his four starts since taking over after Carson Wentz went down with a torn ACL. This will also be his toughest test to date, having to take on the No. 1-ranked defense in the NFL this year, so he'll be a tough start in DFS formats this weekend despite his early playoff success.

  • Zay Jones - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 1/18/18 6:47pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones (shoulder) underwent successful surgery to repair a torn labrum on Tuesday, Jan. 16. According to a source, Jones' injury wasn't revealed until last week during a standard season-ending MRI examination.

    Huddle Up: This injury might explain the rookie's inconsistent freshman campaign, as Jones looked like a useful piece at times for the Bills, while during other portions of the year, he was virtually non-existent. With not much depth at the position in Buffalo, Jones will get another chance to break out in 2018, but he'll be entering next year as mostly a WR4.

  • Tom Brady - QB - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/18/18 6:33pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is a perfect 7-0 in his career against the Jacksonville Jaguars, including in playoff games. It's his most wins without a loss against a single opponent. Additionally, in those seven games, Brady has completed 171-of-237 passes (72.2 percent) for 1,832 yards, to go along with 17 touchdowns compared to only two interceptions.

    Huddle Up: Brady owns stellar numbers for his career opposite Jacksonville but this Jaguars defense may be unlike any he's ever faced. On top of that, it appears he'll be suiting up on Sunday afternoon at less than 100 percent, which could make him a risky chalky play in DFS formats this weekend. Despite this, he's still the top option to roll with at his position out of all four starting QBs.

  • David Johnson - RB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 1/18/18 5:26pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) has his strength and full range of motion back with his injured wrist, which is now healed. He's focused mostly on making sure he's 'ready to play' in 2018 and that he is as healthy as possible.

    Huddle Up: There was arguably no bigger tragedy in fantasy football this year than the unfortunate season-ending injury to Johnson, who was one of the first guys off the board in pretty much all drafts. Making matters worse, the 26-year-old will be returning to unfamiliar surroundings, having a new quarterback and head coach when the new campaign kicks off. Regardless, Johnson should remain one of the highest-ranked running backs going into next season.

  • Blake Bortles - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 1/18/18 2:01pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) fully participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 18.

    Huddle Up: Bortles has posted solid numbers over the last few weeks but may be asked to do more in the AFC Championship game. He will be facing a solid New England Patriots defense and will be a risky fantasy option.

  • Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 1/18/18 1:42pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Jan. 18.

    Huddle Up: Fournette should be ready to play in the AFC Championship game as long as he does not suffer a setback. He is one of the better running backs in the NFL and should be a No. 1 fantasy running back in all leagues.

  • Mike Gillislee - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/18/18 1:35pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Jan. 18.

    Huddle Up: Gillislee's status for the AFC Championship game is uncertain, so owners should check on his status later in the week. He would see limited carries if he plays against the Jacksonville Jaguars and may not be a great fantasy option.

  • Rex Burkhead - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/18/18 1:30pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Jan. 18.

    Huddle Up: Burkhead did not play last week despite practicing, so his status for the AFC Championship game is uncertain at this point. He probably would receive a limited role if he is active for the game but could be a flex option in leagues.
