Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Marlon Mack - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 10/16/17 10:21pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack received just two carries, turning that pair of rush attempts into 18 yards in the team's Week 6 game Monday, Oct. 16, versus the Tennessee Titans. He also failed to haul in either of his two targets through the air.

    Huddle Up: Yikes, so much for the Colts getting Mack more work after his big game in Week 5. Luckily for the rookie and his owners, though, Robert Turbin (elbow) looks like he's going to miss at least a few weeks, so Mack should immediately get more work again as early as next week. It's just hard to trust him as a FLEX outside of the deepest formats after tonight's stinker.

  • Frank Gore - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 10/16/17 10:06pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore logged 49 rushing yards on 10 carries in the team's Week 6 game Monday, Oct. 16, against the Tennessee Titans. He also caught two of his three targets for 18 yards.

    Huddle Up: It wasn't exactly a dud of a performance, as Gore did total 67 yards collectively, but it wasn't anything special either, which has become typical for the former 49er. Gore probably deserved more work, given his 4.9 yards-per-carry average, but the Titans fell behind early in the fourth and went with their passing game more as a result. He's still a decent FLEX option for most formats, but he can be more impactful once Andrew Luck (shoulder) gets back.

  • Jack Doyle - TE - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 10/16/17 9:57pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle recorded seven grabs for 50 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 6 game Monday, Oct. 16, opposite the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Overall, Doyle drew a season-high 11 targets from Jacoby Brissett, making it easier for him to post his biggest stat line of the campaign. He hasn't quite developed into the TE1 that some were pegging him to be after his breakout a year ago, but he can still be a solid option in certain spots. His production should also become more consistent once Andrew Luck (shoulder) returns.

  • T.Y. Hilton - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 10/16/17 9:51pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton recorded just one catch from his four targets for a mere 19 yards in the team's Week 6 game Monday, Oct. 16, versus the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Yuck. This was Hilton's worst game of the season, and it was also the third time in six games that he was held under 50 receiving yards. Clearly, the 27-year-old will benefit greatly when Andrew Luck (shoulder) is ready to return, but that could still be several weeks away. In the meantime, Hilton has become a boom-or-bust WR2 with Jacoby Brissett under center.

  • Jacoby Brissett - QB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 10/16/17 9:44pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett completed 21 of 37 pass attempts for 212 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 6 game Monday, Oct. 16, against the Tennessee Titans. He also added 15 rushing yards on five carries.

    Huddle Up: Owners who were rolling with Brissett on Monday night in hopes of him causing havoc with his scrambling ability may have come away a little disappointed with this stat line, but it really wasn't a bad night at all for the 23-year-old, as he didn't turn the ball over. Brissett is a fine QB option to stream for bye weeks, but that's really about it, especially with Andrew Luck set to return sooner than later.

  • Eric Decker - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 10/16/17 9:36pm ET

    Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker had his most productive game since joining the team over the offseason, recording season highs in receptions (seven), targets (nine) and receiving yards (88) in the team's Week 6 game Monday, Oct. 16, opposite the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: It was also his first time topping 50 yards in a game this season, so hopefully this will get the eight-year veteran going. The next step now for Decker is to find the end zone for the first time as a member of the Titans, but at least with Marcus Mariota back healthy already, he should get plenty of opportunities in the red zone. However, for the time being, he's more of a WR4 in most leagues.

  • Delanie Walker - TE - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 10/16/17 9:32pm ET

    Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker was held to four catches for only 17 yards in the team's Week 6 game Monday, Oct. 16, versus the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: He also once again didn't score, as Walker's season-long touchdown drought has now reached six ballgames. If there's any consolation for his owners, it's that he continues to accumulate a decent number of targets, drawing eight throws from Marcus Mariota in this one. If that continues, he's going to start producing closer to his norm sooner than later.

  • DeMarco Murray - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 10/16/17 9:01pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray churned out 40 yards on 12 carries and had a rushing touchdown in the team's Week 6 game Monday, Oct. 16, against the Indianapolis Colts. He also hauled in four receptions for 47 yards.

    Huddle Up: It was a nice showing from Murray for his owners, but his usage is still a concern, as teammate Derrick Henry actually had seven more carries and more than triple the rushing yards as well. However, the former rushing champion is just too talented to keep on the bench, and he still generally gets enough work to warrant being started regularly in just about all leagues.

  • Derrick Henry - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 10/16/17 8:59pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry racked up 131 rushing yards and a touchdown on 19 carries in the team's Week 6 game Monday, Oct. 16, versus the Indianapolis Colts. He also had one catch for 14 yards.

    Huddle Up: Henry did the majority of his damage on his final rush attempt, taking it 72 yards into the end zone to put the game out of reach. His owners should not only be happy with this performance but also with the fact that he recorded more rushes than DeMarco Murray, who received just 12 carries. Henry is a fine weekly FLEX option in most leagues, with the potential to be a serviceable RB2 if his workload was steadier.

  • Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 10/16/17 8:53pm ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (hamstring) completed 23 of 32 passes for 306 yards, one touchdown and one interception in his return to action Monday, Oct. 16, against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Mariota missed last week's affair against the Dolphins but certainly didn't show any rust in this one, as he recorded season highs in passing yards and completion percentage. The only disappointment was that he didn't chip in any rushing yards, but that shouldn't be a surprise given his hamstring issue. Another week of rest should allow him to scramble more again, but overall, owners who decided to fire him up this week have to be pleased with this outcome.

  • Tyreek Hill - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 10/16/17 8:32pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (neck) was a full participant in practice Monday, Oct. 16.

    Huddle Up: This is good news for Hill, who was thought to have suffered a concussion towards the end of Sunday's contest, but after being checked out, it turns out he did not. At the same time, he might be a bit of a risky start if he's not 100 percent, considering he's coming off a game that saw him register his lowest receiving yards (34) of the season. As of now, though, he's still a WR3.

  • Kareem Hunt - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 10/16/17 7:47pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (knee) was a full participant in practice Monday, Oct. 16.

    Huddle Up: Hunt was a bit humbled for the first time in his rookie campaign on Sunday, being held to just 21 yards on the ground on nine carries, but he still managed to salvage his day with five catches for 89 yards through the air. He'll be out there on Thursday night and as usual, he can be fired up as a trusty RB1.

  • DeVante Parker - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 10/16/17 6:41pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (ankle) is uncertain to return in the team's Week 7 game Sunday, Oct. 22, against the New York Jets, according to head coach Adam Gase.

    Huddle Up: With Parker out this past Sunday, it was Jarvis Landry who benefited the most, drawing a whopping 14 targets from Jay Cutler, so he'll be highly recommended in DFS formats if Parker has to sit again. The former second-round draft pick has played through injury before, though, so there's still a decent chance he suits up versus the rival Jets.

  • Ezekiel Elliott - RB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 10/16/17 6:01pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott seeking a temporary restraining order to postpone his six-game suspension, and lawyers from the NFL Players Association have filed paperwork with the U.S. District Court on behalf of Elliott.

    Huddle Up: Elliott is currently suspended but would be able to play in Week 7 if he receives the restraining order. Owners should continue to monitor the situation and will need other options available in case Elliot is not allowed to play.

  • Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 10/16/17 4:03pm ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (hamstring) is officially active for the team's Week 6 game and will be the starting quarterback.

    Huddle Up: Mariota will be playing despite his hamstring injury and his movement may be affected a bit because of the injury. He will have a favorable matchup against the Indianapolis Colts and should be started if owners decided to wait on him.

  • Dustin Hopkins - PK - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/16/17 3:46pm ET

    Washington Redskins PK Dustin Hopkins (hip) will miss at least one week because of a partially torn muscle in his hip and is considered week-to-week, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: The Redskins will sign a new kicker this week, but owners will have several options to choose from if they have Hopkins in their lineup.

  • Jameis Winston - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 10/16/17 2:58pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) is considered day-to-day because of a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder, according to head coach Dirk Koetter. Koetter said Winston is not expected do any throwing during practice this week.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation this week to see if Winston will be able to play in Week 7. He has thrown for at least 300 yards in three of the last four games and would be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he is active but would also come with some risk.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 10/16/17 1:41pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) will need surgery on his broken collarbone and could miss the rest of the season, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers likely will miss the rest of the regular season, so owners in standard leagues can drop him if they need to add another quarterback. Brett Hundley will be the starting quarterback moving forward but is no better than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback. The quarterback change will hurt the fantasy value of the Packers receivers and tight ends.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 10/16/17 1:36pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones will be more involved in the offense if head coach Dan Quinn has his way. Quinn said he was not satisfied with how often Jones was seeing the ball, adding that more offensive plays in general will help that cause.

    Huddle Up: There has been a plethora of fantasy disappointments in 2017, one of them being Jones. The star receiver has amassed just 25 catches for 367 yards and -- worst of all -- no touchdowns. Needless to say, though, he needs to remain a fixture in fantasy lineups.

  • Trevor Siemian - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/16/17 12:34pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (shoulder) suffered a minor shoulder sprain in Week 6 but is expected to play in Week 7, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Siemian's 376 yards were impressive and currently lead all quarterbacks for Week 6, but highly questionable reads and subsequent throws doomed the Broncos Sunday night. Siemian remains a backup fantasy quarterback going forward.
