Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Blake Bortles - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 1/22/18 2:47pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles said he would be 'thrilled' to remain with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The fourth-year quarterback will be an impending free agent in 2019.

    Huddle Up: Bortles did his part in leading the Jaguars to the AFC Championship. His numbers don't jump off the chart, but he made fewer mistakes than in previous years. His running ability makes him an underrated fantasy quarterback.

  • Jerick McKinnon - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 1/22/18 11:16am ET

    Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent RB Jerick McKinnon said he would like to be a featured back for a team next season.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon likely will not return to the Vikings if he wants to be a No. 1 running back for a team. He may have trouble finding a starting job but would receive interest from several teams looking for a change-of-pace back. McKinnon has a chance to be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy running back in 2018 depending on his role.

  • Case Keenum - QB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 1/22/18 10:53am ET

    Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent QB Case Keenum said he has not received any indication from the Vikings on if they want to re-sign him this offseason.

    Huddle Up: Keenum is one of three Vikings quarterbacks that will be unrestricted free agents this offseason, but it is not known which quarterback the Vikings will look to re-sign. Keenum finished the regular season with 3,547 yards and 22 touchdowns after taking over the starting job early in the season. He probably will be a starting quarterback for a team in 2018 and should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.

  • Dalvin Cook - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 1/22/18 9:52am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (knee) said he is able to do some jogging but does not have a timetable for when he will return to football activities.

    Huddle Up: Cook probably will not do much during offseason workouts but should have a good chance to be ready for the start of the 2018 season. He played well before suffering his injury this season and should have a similar role in 2018. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues next season.

  • Teddy Bridgewater - QB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 1/22/18 9:29am ET

    Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent QB Teddy Bridgewater said he views himself as a starting quarterback next season but is not sure if it will be with the Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Bridgewater is one of three Vikings quarterbacks that will be free agents this offseason, so he could hit the free-agent market this offseason. He should have a decent chance to find a starting job if he decides to sign with another team. Bridgewater can be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season if he finds a starting job.

  • Laquon Treadwell - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 1/21/18 8:29pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell failed to catch his only target in a 38-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Treadwell managed just 20 catches all season, and he is looking like a massive bust. At this point, the former first-round pick is even a sketchy stash option in dynasty formats.

  • Nick Foles - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/21/18 8:14pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (undisclosed) was seen leaving the X-ray room following the NFC Championship game, but he said he was 'fine.'

    Huddle Up: It sounds like the X-rays were just precautionary, and Foles should be ready to go for the Super Bowl.

  • Latavius Murray - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 1/21/18 8:10pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed six times for 18 yards and caught two passes for 11 yards in a 38-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: It was a forgettable end to what turned out to be a solid season for Murray. However, Dalvin Cook is in line to return in 2018, so Murray will likely be no more than a handcuff.

  • Adam Thielen - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 1/21/18 7:52pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught three passes on nine targets for 28 yards in a 38-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: His back injury could have played a role in his poor outing, but the Vikings were never really in a rhythm on offense. Overall, it was an excellent season for Thielen, and he should be a high floor WR2 in 2018, especially in PPR formats.

  • Stefon Diggs - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 1/21/18 7:47pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs caught eight passes on 12 targets for 70 yards in a 38-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Diggs' best fantasy season was bolstered by eight touchdowns, and the 24-year-old will be in the WR2 mix heading into 2018.

  • Kyle Rudolph - TE - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 1/21/18 7:38pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph caught one pass, a 25-yard touchdown, in a 38-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Rudolph saw a significant drop in his reception and yardage totals in 2017, but his eight touchdowns were the second most of his career. He will be a low-end TE1 candidate for 2018.

  • Nelson Agholor - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/21/18 7:31pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor caught three passes on four targets for 59 yards in a 38-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Agholor returned to fantasy relevance and took a big step toward shedding his bust label with a solid 2017 campaign, and he could cap his season with a big game in the Super Bowl against a New England Patriots defense that has struggled to defend the pass at times.

  • Torrey Smith - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/21/18 7:25pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR Torrey Smith caught five passes for 69 yards, including a 41-yard touchdown, in a 38-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Smith broke free for a long score, but he's no more than a big-play dependent flier in fantasy circles at this point in his career.

  • Alshon Jeffery - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/21/18 7:12pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery caught five passes for 85 yards and two touchdowns in a 38-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Jeffery has found a rhythm with Nick Foles during the playoffs, and after hauling in nine touchdowns during the regular season, he'll carry WR2 upside into 2018.

  • Zach Ertz - TE - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/21/18 7:07pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz caught eight passes on eight targets for 93 yards in a 38-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: It was a tough matchup on paper, but Ertz was unstoppable in this one. He's entrenched himself as a TE1 heading into 2018.

  • LeGarrette Blount - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/21/18 7:00pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount rushed six times for 21 yards and a touchdown in a 38-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Blount powered his way in for a short touchdown, but he has been taking more and more of a backseat to Jay Ajayi in recent weeks. He looks like a touchdown-dependent option at this point.

  • Jay Ajayi - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/21/18 6:54pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi rushed 18 times for 73 yards and caught three passes for 26 yards in a 38-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Ajayi has emerged as Philadelphia's top back during the postseason, showing RB2 potential for 2018.

  • Jerick McKinnon - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 1/21/18 6:50pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed 10 times for 40 yards in the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Jan. 21, and he added 11 receptions for 86 yards on 12 targets.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon might have played his final game in purple and white, as he heads into the offseason as an impending unrestricted free agent. His fantasy value in 2018 obviously hinges on whether he lands in a favorable situation or not.

  • Nick Foles - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/21/18 6:42pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles completed 26 of his 33 pass attempts for 352 yards and three touchdowns in a 38-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Foles was supposed to be a liability for the Eagles, but he ended up shredding the best defense in the NFL. He will certainly boost his long-term stock if he can manage a similar showing in the Super Bowl.

  • Case Keenum - QB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 1/21/18 6:15pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum completed 28 of his 48 pass attempts for 271 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Jan. 21.

    Huddle Up: Keenum did a good job holding down the fort with Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater missing huge chunks of the season due to injury, and he almost carried them to the Super Bowl. He will head into the offseason as an impending unrestricted free agent. The way he played he might find a starting job in 2018.
