Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Odell Beckham - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 9/21/17 7:49pm ET

    New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) said he has experienced zero setbacks with his injured ankle after playing in Week 2, and he expects to play more against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Beckham played limited snaps and managed just 36 yards in his debut, but if he suits up in Week 3, he has too much potential to leave on the bench.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 9/21/17 6:55pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins said the chemistry between he and QB Deshaun Watson is improving every day. 'We're growing, we're getting to know each other, and it's getting better, I can say,' Hopkins said.

    Huddle Up: In their first full game together, Watson targeted Hopkins 13 times. The big plays haven't been there, but the huge workload should make him a low-end WR2, especially in PPR formats, against the Patriots in Week 3.

  • Carlos Hyde - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 9/21/17 6:38pm ET

    Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (hip) returned against the Los Angeles Rams Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Hyde's fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief. Raheem Mostert and Matt Breida split carries while Hyde was out, so both backs could warrant attention if Hyde does miss time going forward.

  • Carlos Hyde - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 9/21/17 5:41pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (hip) left the team's Week 3 game early because of a hip injury and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check for an update on Hyde's status after the game to see if he will miss more time. Matt Breida probably would be the starting running back if Hyde was sidelined for multiple weeks and could be at least a flex option in leagues.

  • Jared Cook - TE - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/21/17 5:09pm ET

    Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook (shoulder) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: The nine-year veteran should be good to go for Sunday, as this seems like it'll be typical concerning his practice habits for the duration of the campaign. He's on pace for a career high in receptions in the early going, and with a nice matchup on tap versus the Redskins, he could end up being a very useful TE1 this weekend.

  • Paul Richardson - WR - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/21/17 5:07pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson (finger) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Richardson has caught six passes for 78 yards and one touchdown in the first two games of the season and could receive a few targets against the Tennessee Titans. The Seattle offense has struggled so far this season, so owners could consider benching Richardson if they have better options.

  • Amari Cooper - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/21/17 4:56pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: This appears to simply be standard procedure for the star third-year wideout. While he's only registered nine catches for 95 yards thus far, he does have a touchdown and has also drawn 18 targets. To put that into perspective, if he maintains that pace of nine per game, he'd end up with a career high. Cooper should be a solid WR1 this week, as he has a delicious matchup on tap in Washington on Sunday night.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 9/21/17 4:46pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: It appears like Graham could miss the Week 3 game, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation. He could be limited if he plays, so owners may want to look at other options.

  • Dontrelle Inman - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/21/17 4:34pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Dontrelle Inman (groin) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Inman was active last week but did not make a catch in his two targets. He may be the No. 3 receiver again this week, but owners should be able to find better options to use.

  • Mike Williams - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/21/17 4:29pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Williams is close to being active but may sit out one more game before he is cleared to play. He can be on fantasy rosters, but owners should not expect a big contribution from him until the second half of the season.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/21/17 4:15pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check later in the week to see if Gordon is in any danger of missing the Week 3 game. He has been limited to only 67 yards over the first two games and will be facing a tough Kansas City Chiefs defense this week but could still be a starting fantasy option.

  • Chris Thompson - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/21/17 4:11pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Chris Thompson (back) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Thompson should have his normal role in Week 3 and will be used in the running and passing game. He would have a bigger role if Rob Kelley is inactive and can be at least a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Rob Kelley - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/21/17 3:46pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Rob Kelley (rib) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Kelley's pain tolerance likely will determine his status for Week 3. He may receive limited work if he does play in the game, so owners may want to consider other options and keep Kelley on the bench this week.

  • John Brown - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/21/17 3:33pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (quadriceps) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Head coach Bruce Arians said Brown probably will not play in Week 3, so owners can keep him on the bench. JJ Nelson and Jaron Brown should continue to see bigger roles in the passing game and could be at least flex options this week against a banged-up Dallas Cowboys secondary.

  • Demaryius Thomas - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 9/21/17 3:22pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) was a full participant at practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Thomas was limited on Wednesday as a result of his hamstring ailment, but it doesn't look like it'll mess with his status come Sunday. Although he has a tough matchup on tap in Buffalo, Thomas should still maintain his WR2 value. Through two games, the 29-year-old has recorded 11 catches for 138 yards. As long as Trevor Siemian continues to play well, the touchdowns should come soon.

  • Jamaal Charles - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 9/21/17 3:16pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (non-injury related) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 21, one day after he was held out.

    Huddle Up: Charles is just fine and has been rested on Wednesdays due to his age. Although he's the clear backup to C.J. Anderson, the former Kansas City Chief has managed to post some modest numbers thus far, logging 86 yards on 19 rushes. However, his services should be reserved for the deepest formats.

  • DeMarco Murray - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/21/17 3:15pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: The Titans may consider keeping Murray out for at least one game so he can rest his injured hamstring, so owners should look for an update later in the week. Derrick Henry would receive a majority of the carries if Murray is ruled out and could be a starter for fantasy owners even though he will be facing a solid Seattle Seahawks defense.

  • Allen Hurns - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/21/17 2:57pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Hurns has become one of the starting receivers because of the injury to Allen Robinson and is coming off a solid Week 2 performance when he posted 82 yards and one touchdown. He will have a tough matchup in Week 3 and could be benched if owners have better options available.

  • Blake Bortles - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/21/17 2:48pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Bortles increased his passing yards from Week 1 to Week 2 but threw two interceptions in the last game. He will be facing a tough Baltimore Ravens defense in Week 3 and should be avoided in all leagues.

  • Kendall Wright - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/21/17 2:44pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Kendall Wright (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Wright is off to somewhat of a slow start even with both Cameron Meredith and Kevin White sidelined for the year. He did catch seven passes for 69 yards last week, though, so don't completely disregard him as a flex consideration.
