Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Odell Beckham - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 9/19/17 6:22am ET

    New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) played 34 of 56 (61 percent) offensive snaps in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: He had four catches for 36 yards, but he wasn't used as a decoy. The offense just stunk it up. He'll have a better outlook in Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles if he recovers well.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/19/17 5:16am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (quadriceps) is '50-50' to play in Week 3, according to a source, but his quadriceps strain isn't considered serious.

    Huddle Up: The Packers face the 0-2 Cincinnati Bengals this week, and if Nelson goes, he could be on a snap count. Randall Cobb (shoulder), who was also nicked up, is day to day. Nelson would be a WR2 candidate if he suits up. Cobb could graduate to WR2 status if he were to play and Nelson didn't.

  • Brandon Marshall - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 9/18/17 9:17pm ET

    New York Giants WR Brandon Marshall posted just one grab for 17 yards in Week 2 against the Detroit Lions on Monday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: Marshall was targeted five times, but the thing Giants fans and fantasy owners will remember is a key drop that was followed by a punt return for score by the Lions. Marshall has looked lost in his first two games with the Giants, and he has a total of two receptions. If not for his past production, fantasy owners would be dropping him to the waiver wire already. They might still be doing that.

  • Sterling Shepard - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 9/18/17 9:16pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard managed just two catches for 23 yards on four targets in Week 2 against the Detroit Lions on Monday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: Shepard and Eli Manning nearly connected on a touchdown in the corner of the end zone in the second half, but the pass was batted away. That was the only thing his fantasy owners could have been remotely excited about, as the Giants offense was just brutal on Monday. Shepard will look for bigger things in Week 3 in Philadelphia, but he is a borderline WR4/5 in most fantasy leagues right now.

  • Odell Beckham - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 9/18/17 9:16pm ET

    New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. posted four catches for 36 yards on five targets in the Week 2 game against the Detroit Lions on Monday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: Beckham, who was a question mark leading up to the game due to an ankle injury, didn't really do much because his quarterback didn't have a lot of time to get the ball down the field. Beckham also had one drop in the game. He'll look for better results in Week 3 in Philadelphia.

  • Evan Engram - TE - New York Giants
    Posted 9/18/17 9:15pm ET

    New York Giants rookie TE Evan Engram hauled in four receptions for 49 yards and a touchdown on a team-high seven targets in Week 2 against the Detroit Lions on Monday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: Engram looked like the only effective option in the pass game on Monday, including Odell Beckham Jr. The rookie has emerged as a decent streaming option heading into Week 3 in Philadelphia.

  • Paul Perkins - RB - New York Giants
    Posted 9/18/17 9:15pm ET

    New York Giants rookie RB Paul Perkins rushed seven times for 10 yards in Week 2 against the Detroit Lions on Monday, Sept. 18, while added two catches for 12 yards.

    Huddle Up: Perkins really struggled in the run game, and the offensive line certainly wasn't blowing open holes for Perkins or the rest of the tailbacks to run through. Unless the O-line for the Giants improves dramatically it will really hold down the fantasy value of Perkins going forward. The Giants meet the Eagles on the road in Week 3.

  • Shane Vereen - RB - New York Giants
    Posted 9/18/17 9:14pm ET

    New York Giants RB Shane Vereen rushed six times for a team-high 28 yards in Week 2 against the Detroit Lions on Monday, Sept. 18, and he added three receptions for 27 yards.

    Huddle Up: Vereen leading the team in rushing tells you a little something about how the night went for the G-Men. Vereen isn't known for his rushing, but for his hands out of the backfield. He is a tremendous PPR option in most fantasy leagues, but not terribly valuable in some standard formats. The Giants travel to Philadelphia in Week 3.

  • Eli Manning - QB - New York Giants
    Posted 9/18/17 9:14pm ET

    New York Giants QB Eli Manning completed 22 of his 32 pass attempts for 239 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 2 against the Detroit Lions on Monday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: Manning put up pretty decent stats considering he was flattened on most plays due to a lack of protection. The Lions did get to him for five sacks and he didn't have much time to get the ball down the field, and he wasn't helped out by his run game, either. If he keeps getting pounded by opposing defenses it's hard to see the iron man Manning making it through the entire 16-game schedule.

  • Theo Riddick - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 9/18/17 8:51pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed nine times for 20 yards while added three receptions for 17 yards in Week 2 against the New York Giants on Monday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: With Ameer Abdullah back to 100 percent health, Riddick will have to share the touches in the Detroit backfield. He doesn't have a ton of fantasy appeal in most standard fantasy formats, but he is a solid RB3 or flex play in most PPR leagues. The Lions host the Falcons in Week 3.

  • Kenny Golladay - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 9/18/17 8:50pm ET

    Detroit Lions rookie WR Kenny Golladay managed just one catch for eight yards in Week 2 against the New York Giants on Monday, Sept. 8. He was targeted three times.

    Huddle Up: Golladay burst onto the scene with touchdowns in Week 1 against the Cardinals, but he looked like a rookie on Monday night. With a young player you can expect inconsistency and growing pains. It looks like he'll be a threat in the red zone, but for now he is nothing more than a WR5 with upside heading into Week 3 against the Falcons.

  • Golden Tate - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 9/18/17 8:50pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate posted four catches for 25 yards in Week 2 against the New York Giants on Monday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: Tate had four of the six catches by Detroit wide receivers, but no one really had a huge night with an offense that was run heavy. He'll look for better results in Week 3 against the visiting Falcons.

  • Marvin Jones - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 9/18/17 8:49pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones had just one catch in Week 2 against the New York Giants on Monday, Sept. 18, but it was good for a 27-yard touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Jones was tied for the team high with five targets, but he and Matthew Stafford were unable to connect. He'll look for more receptions in Week 3 against the visiting Falcons. He remains more of a WR4 or WR5 in most fantasy leagues at this point.

  • Eric Ebron - TE - Detroit Lions
    Posted 9/18/17 8:48pm ET

    Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron hauled in five balls for 42 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the New York Giants on Monday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: Ebron, whose hometown is nearby Jersey City, N.J., seemed to play with a little more purpose. He has always had the potential to be a star in this league but health has been major hurdle. If he can stay healthy he might be on track for a special season in 2017.

  • Ameer Abdullah - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 9/18/17 8:48pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah carried 17 times for 86 yards in Week 2 against the New York Giants on Monday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: Abdullah averaged 5.1 yards per carry, but the streak continues for the Lions. They haven't had a 100-yard runner in a single game since Thanksgiving of 2013 when Reggie Bush hit the mark. If Abdullah continues to run with authority, he'll be the next 100-yard runner for the Honolulu Blue and Silver. He'll try to hit the mark in Week 3 when the Falcons come calling.

  • Matthew Stafford - QB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 9/18/17 8:47pm ET

    Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford completed 15 of his 21 pass attempts for 122 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 2 game against the New York Giants on Monday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: Stafford also added three runs for 23 yards. While he didn't have a great nightly statistically for fantasy owners, he didn't make any mistakes and was helped out by a solid run game. Down the road, the threat of the run will open up even more field for Stafford to excel. He'll look for better results in Week 3 when the Falcons visit Ford Field.

  • John Brown - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 9/18/17 6:41pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (quadriceps) probably will not be able to play against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 3, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

    Huddle Up: Owners can check on Brown's status later in the week, but they probably should use other options since the Cardinals play on Monday Night Football. JJ Nelson will continue to have a bigger role in the passing game if Brown sits out and could be a flex option for owners.

  • Devontae Booker - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 9/18/17 5:42pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker's (wrist) status for Week 3 is uncertain at this point, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

    Huddle Up: Booker probably will need to practice this week if he wants a chance to play, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. He probably would receive limited touches if he plays in Week 3 and can be avoided in most leagues if owners have better options.

  • Corey Coleman - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/18/17 5:23pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) underwent surgery Monday, Sept. 18, to repair the fractured bone in his hand and likely will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Sept. 19. Coleman will be eligible of come off the Reserve/Injured list after eight weeks if he is healed.

    Huddle Up: Coleman dealt with a broken hand last season and missed six weeks, so he will miss a significant amount of the season even if he is not placed on the Reserve/Injured list. Owners in most leagues can drop him if they need to add another player off the waiver wire. Rashard Higgins should receive a bigger role in the offense and could be a flex option in some deeper leagues.

  • Corey Davis - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/18/17 4:48pm ET

    Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis (hamstring) is considered day-to-day because of a hamstring injury, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.

    Huddle Up: Davis was limited to four yards in Week 2 because of the injury, and his status for Week 3 is uncertain at this point. Owners should monitor his situation but probably can keep him on the bench this week.
