Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Dak Prescott - QB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 8/18/18 6:36pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 10 of his 15 passes for 86 yards and a touchdown against the Cincinnati Bengals in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 18.

    Huddle Up: Prescott will try to bounce back after a lackluster sophomore campaign, but with an unproven group of receivers, he needs to be treated as a QB2 for now.

  • Delanie Walker - TE - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 8/18/18 4:48pm ET

    Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (undisclosed) will not be active for Week 2 of the preseason.

    Huddle Up: Walker was banged up in practice earlier this week, but we still don't know the specific injury or its extent. Assuming it's minor, Walker remains a mid-range TE1.

  • Dez Bryant - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 8/18/18 2:45pm ET

    Free-agent WR Dez Bryant (Cowboys) is no longer on the front burner for the Cleveland Browns, and the two sides are not expected to reach an agreement anytime soon, according to a source. Head coach Hue Jackson has said the team is still open to signing Bryant even though WR Josh Gordon returning.

    Huddle Up: It looks like Bryant will need to wait longer before signing with a team, so owners should continue to monitor the situation. He has a chance to be a No. 3 fantasy receiver if he joins a good offense.

  • Vance McDonald - TE - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 8/18/18 2:35pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald (foot) is not expected to play in the third preseason game because of a foot injury.

    Huddle Up: McDonald played well in the playoffs last season but has missed most of training camp because of an injury. Owners in most leagues should consider McDonald as a No. 2 fantasy tight end or a waiver wire option during the season.

  • Latavius Murray - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 8/18/18 2:00pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed for 12 yards on six carries during the preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Saturday, Aug. 18. He also fumbled the ball twice during the game.

    Huddle Up: Murray will serve as the No. 2 running back for the Vikings this season and probably will only see limited touches each week. He could a handcuff to Dalvin Cook in some leagues but likely will be a No. 4 running back on most rosters.

  • Blake Bortles - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 8/18/18 1:57pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles went 12-for-20 for-159 yards and one interception in the preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings Saturday, Aug. 18.

    Huddle Up: Bortles is coming off a productive playoff run and will have a solid receiving corps to work with this season. He probably should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues.

  • T.J. Yeldon - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 8/18/18 1:54pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon was the workhorse in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 18 against the Minnesota Vikings, rushing for 39 yards on 10 carries while adding a game-high five grabs and 73 yards on six targets.

    Huddle Up: Yeldon received a long look after Leonard Fournette exited the game early. The former Alabama standout is trying to hold off Corey Grant, Tim Cook and Brandon Wilds for the primary backup job to Fournette. It appears the incumbent will hold onto his job, but his fantasy appeal remains limited to deeper PPR leagues and as a handcuff for Fournette.

  • Kirk Cousins - QB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 8/18/18 1:50pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed just three of his eight pass attempts for 12 yards and he was sacked once in the preseason game loss against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday, Aug. 18.

    Huddle Up: There will certainly be better days for Cousins and the Minnesota offense, but they were pushed around at home by a quality Jacksonville defense. Cousins threw for at least 4,000 yards and 25 or more touchdowns in each of his three seasons as a full-time starter, so he is a bona fide No. 1 fantasy option in all formats.

  • Jordan Reed - TE - Washington Redskins
    Posted 8/18/18 1:07pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (illness) did not participate in practice Saturday, Aug. 18, because of an illness.

    Huddle Up: Reed probably will be back on the field in a few days and should be able to play in the third preseason game. Reed is a solid fantasy option when he is on the field but is a risky option in all leagues because of his lengthy injury history. Owners can consider him a No. 1 tight end this season but will need a solid backup plan.

  • T.Y. Hilton - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 8/18/18 1:03pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) suffered a sprained shoulder in practice Saturday, Aug. 18.

    Huddle Up: Hilton was icing down his shoulder after practice, and the update was a sprain. It sounds worse than it is, most likely, and would be a lot more serious if it were a separation or fracture. He'll have a couple of weeks to get himself back to health before the regular season opener. Target him as a low-end WR1, especially with Andrew Luck back. Just be sure to have reinforcements on hand in the event he is slow to return.

  • Dez Bryant - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 8/18/18 1:01pm ET

    Free-agent WR Dez Bryant (Cowboys) is still an option for the Cleveland Browns even though WR Josh Gordon has rejoined the team, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

    Huddle Up: Bryant has been talking with the Browns, but the two sides have not reached a team. He would be behind Gordon and Jarvis Landry if he signs with the Browns and probably would compete with Antonio Callaway for the No. 3 receiver job. Bryant can still be a productive option for fantasy owners and has a chance to be a No. 3 fantasy receiver depending on his role.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 8/18/18 12:09pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (head) is a full participant during practice Saturday, Aug. 18.

    Huddle Up: Roethlisberger should receive some work in the third preseason game after sitting out the first two. He has posted solid numbers over the last several seasons and can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback.

  • Quincy Enunwa - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 8/18/18 12:02pm ET

    New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (thumb) is participating in practice Saturday, Aug. 18, and is taking part in team drills.

    Huddle Up: Enunwa is recovering from a thumb injury and probably will be able to play in the third preseason game. He has a chance to be a solid option in the team's passing game and could be a No. 4 fantasy receiver.

  • Isaiah Crowell - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 8/18/18 11:47am ET

    New York Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (concussion) returned to the practice field Saturday, Aug. 18, and was able to participate in individuals drills.

    Huddle Up: Crowell missed the preseason game on Thursday, but he might be able to return for the crucial third preseason game. Either way, he has plenty of time to get well before the regular season opener. Target Crowell as a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option in standard formats.

  • T.Y. Hilton - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 8/18/18 11:37am ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) banged up his left shoulder in practice Saturday, Aug. 18, and he was being iced down by trainers.

    Huddle Up: There is no report on the severity of his injury, but it's likely just your standard training camp bump or bruise. Fantasy owners should continue to tab him as a low-end WR1, especially with Andrew Luck back to bump up the receiver's value.

  • Josh Gordon - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 8/18/18 10:38am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is still in the substance abuse program and will not be allowed to participate in practice until certain conditions are met, according to NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see when he will be able to return to the field. He should be a No. 2 fantasy receiver in all leagues when he plays.

  • Carson Wentz - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 8/18/18 9:19am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) will participate in team drills during practice Sunday, Aug. 19.

    Huddle Up: Wentz has been limited for the last several days but will once again participate in 11-on-11 drills. He is still a question mark for Week 1 but should play most of the season. Wentz can be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues, but owners should add a good backup in case Wentz misses a few games.

  • Josh Gordon - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 8/18/18 9:18am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has ended his leave of absence and has rejoined the team. General manager John Dorsey said Gordon will initially participate in meetings and conditioning and then will be eased into football activities.

    Huddle Up: Gordon probably will not receive much preseason playing time but should be ready for the start of the regular season. He is one of the better receivers in the NFL when he is on the field and can be a solid No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Dalvin Cook - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 8/18/18 9:04am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (knee) is not expected to play in the second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 18.

    Huddle Up: Cook probably will play in the third preseason game and should be ready for the start of the regular season. He will be the main running back for the Vikings this season and can be at least a No. 2 running back in all leagues.

  • Kenny Stills - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 8/17/18 11:57pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills (ankle, calf) has been battling an ankle and a calf injury, head coach Adam Gase said on Friday, Aug. 17. He is expected to return for the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 25.

    Huddle Up: If Stills is able to return for the crucial third preseason game fantasy owners will have a better idea of how healthy he is. Stills has the potential to be a solid WR3 or flex fantasy option, as someone has to step up and fill the void of the departed Jarvis Landry.
