Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Paxton Lynch - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 12/18/17 8:39am ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) could start the final two games if he's healthy enough to play as the team wants to evaluate him.

    Huddle Up: Lynch doesn't hold much fantasy value except in dynasty leagues; and that may be waning as well.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 12/18/17 8:10am ET

    Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham had one catch for minus-1 yard Sunday, Dec. 17, against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: That's two games in a row he has been a non-factor. The two games before that, he only salvaged three-catch efforts by scoring a touchdown. Graham will have a better matchup against the Dallas Cowboys next week, but he has become a really suspect TE1 play.

  • Rex Burkhead - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/18/17 6:06am ET

    Updating previous reports, New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (knee) is believed to have a sprained knee and a bruise but avoided a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He'll have an MRI Monday, Dec. 18.

    Huddle Up: Dion Lewis' stock only gets better, and Mike Gillislee could become a factor again. James White could start to see more carries, too. However, it's anyone's guess which back will be featured any given week. Burkhead's fantasy season is likely over.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 12/18/17 6:05am ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree had seven catches for 39 yards and two touchdowns against the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, Dec. 17.

    Huddle Up: He's inconsistent, but he still ends up as a WR2 in terms of fantasy points for the season. He's a weekly flex option with boom or bust potential.

  • Dak Prescott - QB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 12/18/17 5:32am ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott was 18-for-27 for 212 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 15 against the Oakland Raiders. He rushed six times for 32 yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Prescott is 30th in fantasy points per game the last five weeks, but he'll get Ezekiel Elliott back in Week 16. He'll have a chance to exploit a beat-up Seattle Seahawks defense next week as a low-end QB1.

  • Rishard Matthews - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 12/18/17 5:22am ET

    Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews had six catches for 95 yards and a touchdown Sunday, Dec. 17, against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Matthews had a clunker game last week, but he's averaging 6.6 targets the last five weeks with steady production. He's a WR3 candidate against the Los Angeles Rams next week.

  • Marquise Goodwin - WR - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 12/18/17 5:11am ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin had 10 catches for 114 yards Sunday, Dec. 17, against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Goodwin has 28 catches for 397 yards over the last four weeks, and he has emerged as a WR3 the rest of the way.

  • Carlos Hyde - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 12/17/17 11:44pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde rushed 16 times for 25 yards in a Week 15 win over the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: This was Hyde's worst game in a few outings, and with Matt Brieda earning more touches Hyde's fortunes will only go down. This game was against the Titans' vaunted run defense, however, so expect Hyde to stay in a starting role for Week 16.

  • Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 12/17/17 11:19pm ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota threw for 241 yards and two touchdowns in a Week 15 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Mariota has had an up-and-down season, and this turned out to be one of his better outings. Still, Mariota has been uneven to the point where he's a high-end QB2 at the best.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo - QB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 12/17/17 11:15pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo threw for 381 yards and a touchdown in a narrow Week 15 win over the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Garoppolo is slowly playing into a QB1 role that could carry into next season. This is another strong outing for the former New England Patriots backup, and it came in a game where a lot of people had the Titans favored.

  • Russell Wilson - QB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 12/17/17 9:01pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 14 of his 30 passes for 142 yards and a touchdown and rushed five times for 39 yards in a 42-7 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Wilson and company fell behind early and could never find their rhythm. Expect him to return to his QB1 ways against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 16.

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 12/17/17 8:57pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins caught two passes for 14 yards in a 42-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: The lopsided nature of this game no doubt hurt Watkins, but now that Robert Woods is back, Watkins will be a risky, touchdown-dependent option over the final two games.

  • Cooper Kupp - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 12/17/17 8:54pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp caught two passes for 21 yards in a 42-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: The return of Robert Woods was expected to have an impact on Kupp's production, but the poor stat line can be blamed on Todd Gurley's dominance. Kupp should be a quality WR3 going forward.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 12/17/17 8:51pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell carried 24 times for 117 yards and a touchdown in Week 15 against the New England Patriots and he added five receptions for 48 yards on his six targets.

    Huddle Up: Bell seemed to benefit once Antonio Brown left the game due to injury, as he was the guy carrying a bigger load down the stretch and in the pass game in the second half. Bell, Martavis Bryant and JuJu Smith-Schuster will have to pick up the slack in at least the final two regular season games with Brown on the shelf.

  • Robert Woods - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 12/17/17 8:49pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods returned from a shoulder injury and finished with six catches for 45 yards and a touchdown in a 42-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: The passing attack wasn't needed much with Todd Gurley running wild, but Woods resumed his role as Jared Goff's top target. He should be in the WR2 conversation over the final two weeks.

  • Todd Gurley - RB - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 12/17/17 8:44pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley rushed 21 times for 152 yards and three touchdowns and caught three passes for 28 yards and a touchdown in a 42-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Gurley has been a must-start RB1 all year, but this was a big game even by his standards.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 12/17/17 8:43pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant ended up with four receptions for 59 yards and a touchdown on six targets in Week 15 against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Everyone in the receiver corps will move up a spot and have to pick up the slack with Antonio Brown (calf) going down for at least the final two regular season games. Treat Bryant as a WR4 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 16 and beyond.

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 12/17/17 8:43pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster posted six receptions for 114 yards and six targets in Week 15 against the New England Patriots, highlighted by a 69-yard catch and run late in the fourth quarter.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster will work as the team's No. 1 receiver in the final two regular season games with Antonio Brown (calf) sidelined by a partially torn calf muscle. He is worth using as a WR2 across the board in all fantasy leagues.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 12/17/17 8:42pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 22 of his 30 pass attempts for 281 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Week 15 game against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Big Ben nearly had a third touchdown, which might have been the game-winning score, but instant replay overturned it in a controversial ruling to some. He also lost Antonio Brown fairly early to injury and will be without him for the remainder of the regular season, so that hurts his fantasy appeal into Week 16 and Week 17.

  • Kenny Britt - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/17/17 8:41pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Kenny Britt made one reception for seven yards on his only target in Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Britt was brought aboard for depth and he isn't someone to rely upon for fantasy purposes down the stretch unless disaster totally strikes in New England.
