Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Matt Ryan - QB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 3/21/18 7:46pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan's talks with the club concerning a contract extension 'appear to have hit a snag,' with general manager Thomas Dimitroff saying he couldn't put a timetable on it. He added he doesn't know how close the two sides are but that 'we talk about it and it seems like things are right around the corner.'

    Huddle Up: Previously, it was thought that an extension would get done this week, but now it seems that is no longer the case. Nonetheless, it is still likely that the two sides come to an agreement, with Ryan, a recent league MVP who has taken his team to the Super Bowl, probably going to get somewhere around $30 million annually. Not only is he probably the best quarterback in the history of the franchise, he's also still a legit QB1 for fantasy purposes in all formats.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 3/21/18 3:13pm ET

    Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (Redskins) appears to be deciding between the Seattle Seahawks and New York Jets at this point, in the opinion of Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot.

    Huddle Up: Pryor likely would have a solid role no matter if he signs with the Seahawks or the Jets. He may have more fantasy value if he signed with the Seahawks because of the quarterback situation but could be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

  • Cameron Meredith - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 3/21/18 1:44pm ET

    Chicago Bears restricted free-agent WR Cameron Meredith will meet with the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, March 22.

    Huddle Up: Baltimore has already added Michael Crabtree and John Brown to an underwhelming wide receiver corps. Meredith would make a nice complement opposite Crabtree with Brown in the slot, but Baltimore is where wide receivers' fantasy value goes to die.

  • Willie Snead - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 3/21/18 6:42am ET

    New Orleans Saints restricted free-agent WR Willie Snead is visiting the Baltimore Ravens Wednesday, March 21.

    Huddle Up: Snead has WR5 luster, but he seems to have lost his standing with the Saints and could improve to a WR4 target with another team.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 3/21/18 5:32am ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch restructured his contract Saturday, March 17, and its base value is worth $5.5 million with $4.5 million guaranteed. He can earn up to $9.25 million with incentives.

    Huddle Up: Lynch had moments last season, but the team just added Doug Martin. The two offset each other to a degree, and Lynch is an RB3 in fantasy with minimal upside since he doesn't catch a lot of passes.

  • Allen Hurns - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 3/20/18 4:55pm ET

    Free-agent WR Allen Hurns (Jaguars) said he has received interest from the Chicago Bears, Buffalo Bills, New Orleans Saints, Houston Texans, New York Jets, Oakland Raiders and Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Hurns was limited to only 10 games in 2017 and finished with 484 yards and two touchdowns. He could be a No. 3 receiver for a team next season and has a chance to be a late-round option in deeper fantasy leagues.

  • Allen Hurns - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 3/20/18 3:38pm ET

    Free-agent WR Allen Hurns (Jaguars) has a visit scheduled with the New York Jets Wednesday, March 21, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Hurns' situation will have gone from mediocre to worse if he signs on with the Jets. New York did themselves a favor by re-signing Josh McCown and bringing on Teddy Bridgewater, but neither quarterback is consistent enough to make any Jets receiver a week-to-week starting option. The good news is that Hurns would have the opportunity to make an immediate impact in a subpar receiving corps.

  • Cameron Meredith - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 3/20/18 2:41pm ET

    Chicago Bears restricted free-agent WR Cameron Meredith visited the Indianapolis Colts Tuesday, March 20, according to a source. If they so desire the Bears would be able to match any offer the Colts give Meredith.

    Huddle Up: The Colts are making some decent moves to help improve Andrew Luck's offense. They've already signed Ryan Grant and Eric Ebron and have even added some offensive line help. It will be more difficult to acquire Meredith since he is a restricted free agent, but it's an intriguing marriage that is bound to be underrated if it comes to fruition.

  • Eric Decker - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 3/20/18 11:30am ET

    Free-agent WR Eric Decker (Titans) is not visiting the New Orleans Saints Tuesday, March 20. It had been reported elsewhere that Decker was on his way to visit New Orleans.

    Huddle Up: Joining the Saints could breathe new life back into Decker's fantasy value, but alas he is not visiting, at least not yet. Teaming up with Drew Brees is a promising proposition for anyone, especially with Decker's red-zone ability. Nevertheless, Decker remains a late-round flier until we know where he'll be playing next.

  • Kai Forbath - PK - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 3/20/18 11:13am ET

    Free-agent PK Kai Forbath (Vikings) is re-signing to an undisclosed deal with the Minnesota Vikings Tuesday, March 20, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Forbath was a quality starting fantasy kicker in 2017 despite missing six field goals and five extra points. With Kirk Cousins in town the Vikings should be scoring plenty again this year, making Forbath a No. 1 fantasy kicker for a second straight year.

  • Ryan Grant - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 3/20/18 9:10am ET

    Free-agent WR Ryan Grant (Redskins) reportedly signed a one-year contract worth $5 million with the Indianapolis Colts on Tuesday, March 20.

    Huddle Up: The Colts need help and depth in a lots of places, and Grant should see a significant amount of time on a team that doesn't have any proof players at receiver besides T.Y. Hilton. Ideally, Grant ends up being Indianapolis's third receiver who gets some run in the slot. He could flirt with fantasy relevancy in 2018, but he would probably need an injury to Hilton or Chester Rogers in order for it to happen.

  • Allen Hurns - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 3/20/18 7:32am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns will be released Tuesday, March 20, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Hurns is always nicked up, and his 64-1,031-10 season was three years ago now. He's worth monitoring, and there's potential, but he's a WR4 or WR5.

  • Matt Ryan - QB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 3/19/18 11:40pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan is 'likely' to sign a contract extension this week that is 'expected to pay him near $30 million per season,' according to Jeff Schultz of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

    Huddle Up: After reaching the Super Bowl and winning MVP honors during the 2016 season, Ryan took a step back this past season, though that isn't to say he had a down year, since he certainly did not. After all, the 10-year veteran still eclipsed the 4,000-yard mark for the seventh straight campaign while logging a solid 91.4 passer rating. He's still firmly in the QB1 picture without question and should present much better value next season.

  • C.J. Prosise - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 3/19/18 10:20pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider recently mentioned that the club 'needs' RB C.J. Prosise 'to be a reliable dude,' adding that he's an 'extremely talented guy.'

    Huddle Up: Seattle's running game was a mess last season, although that had a lot to do with most of their tailbacks being banged up, including Prosise, who landed on injured reserve in mid-November and did not return. That's been a theme of his career up to this point, having played in just 11 out of a possible 32 games since being drafted two years ago. As Schneider said, he's talented but needs to stay healthy, and he'll carve out a useful role if that is the case.

  • Carson Wentz - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 3/19/18 9:58pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) posted video of himself throwing inside the team's practice facility Monday, March 19, as he 'appears to be making some significant strides' in his rehab from a torn ACL and LCL. He's still aiming to return for the season opener.

    Huddle Up: All indications are that Wentz will indeed be ready for the start of the season, which means he can be drafted as your standard QB1 after the sensational sophomore showing he exhibited this past year. Prior to going down with a season-ending injury, Wentz had posted a 101.9 passer rating in 13 games, as he finished with 3,296 yards and 33 touchdowns compared to just seven interceptions.

  • Eric Ebron - TE - Free Agent
    Posted 3/19/18 5:54pm ET

    Free-agent TE Eric Ebron (Lions) signed a two-year contract with the Indianapolis Colts worth a maximum value of $15 million on Monday, March 19, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    Huddle Up: This is a curious signing for the Colts, if only because tight end isn't necessarily a need for the team (Jack Doyle) and Ebron isn't a particularly good blocker. Indianapolis was one of the worst places for Ebron from a fantasy perspective, as he seems unlikely to beat out Doyle. Even if the Colts play more two-tight sets than any other team in the league in 2018, Ebron will likely struggle to maintain TE2 value while also hurting Doyle's case for TE1 status.

  • DeMarco Murray - RB - Free Agent
    Posted 3/19/18 2:06pm ET

    Free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Titans) left his visit with the Miami Dolphins without an agreement Monday, March 19.

    Huddle Up: That doesn't mean an agreement can't eventually get done, but Murray can visit other teams. He's one of the bigger names still on the free-agent market but will assuredly be part of a committee once he finds a new team. Approach him as an RB3 or flex with more upside in PPR scenarios.

  • Donte Moncrief - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 3/19/18 8:42am ET

    Updating previous reports, Jacksonville Jaguars WR Donte Moncrief signed a one-year, $9.6 million deal with $2 million in potential incentives. The contract is fully guaranteed.

    Huddle Up: Moncrief scored touchdowns in bunches, but he has yet to show he can be a reliable fantasy contributor. He's worth the WR4 flyer.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 3/19/18 7:44am ET

    Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (Redskins) will visit the New York Jets, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Pryor could still have some PPR luster as a WR4 or WR5, depending on the situation.

  • Eric Ebron - TE - Free Agent
    Posted 3/19/18 6:43am ET

    Free-agent TE Eric Ebron (Lions) is visiting the Indianapolis Colts Monday, March 19.

    Huddle Up: Ebron has all the physical talent, but he has been oft-injured and a fantasy bust since he entered the league. There is still time to put it together, and he's worth monitoring as a TE2.
