Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Chris Carson - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 12/13/17 10:50pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (ankle, leg) has resumed running, according to head coach Pete Carroll, who hopes Carson can return to practice next week.

    Huddle Up: Carroll acknowledged a Carson return could be optimistic, but if your RB situation is grim you can at least keep an eye on the rookie's status.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 12/13/17 10:37pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant missed practice Wednesday, Dec. 13, due to a personal/family situation and will be back with the club on Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: While Bryant saw a season-high 10 targets against Baltimore last Sunday, the return of JuJu Smith-Schuster pushes Bryant down the pecking order. He's a desperation play at this time of the year.

  • Philip Rivers - QB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 12/13/17 7:55pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers passed retired QB Warren Moon for ninth on the NFL's all-time passing yards list. He has now thrown for 49,444 yards after his performance in the team's Week 14 win Sunday, Dec. 10, opposite the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Even at age 36, Rivers is having another terrific fantasy season and he's on pace to hit the 4,000-yard plateau for the ninth time in his career. Additionally, he also currently owns his highest QB Rating (97.2) since 2013. Year in and year out, the former fourth-overall draft pick is simply one of the most underrated options to deploy at quarterback in all of fantasy.

  • Tyler Boyd - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 12/13/17 7:32pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd played in 30 snaps in the team's most recent game in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 10, against the Chicago Bears, twice the amount he logged in each of the previous two weeks.

    Huddle Up: Even if Boyd's playing time is increasing down the stretch, he's still not someone for owners to lean on in the fantasy postseason. He's yet to reach 20 receiving yards in a single game, though he did match his season high with four targets in his most recent showing. But he just hasn't produced enough to merit consideration as a fantasy starter in any league, therefore he can be left on the wire.

  • Robert Woods - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 12/13/17 5:44pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods (shoulder) said that he's playing in the team's Week 15 game Sunday, Dec. 17, versus the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Woods had arguably the best back-to-back stretch of his career before missing the last three contests with a shoulder injury. He's certainly developed into one of quarterback Jared Goff's favorite weapons, and thus, as long as he's able to suit up this weekend, the former Buffalo Bill can be reinserted into lineups as a WR3.

  • Jeremy Kerley - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 12/13/17 5:34pm ET

    New York Jets WR Jeremy Kerley was placed on the roster exemption list Wednesday, Dec. 13. He's coming off his four-game suspension for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drugs policy, and the team can keep him on the list until Monday, Dec. 18, at 4 p.m. EST. Head coach Todd Bowles said they are still discussing what to do with Kerley.

    Huddle Up: Prior to his suspension, Kerley had some relatively decent outings for PPR leagues. However, Bryce Petty is now under center for the injured Josh McCown, and as a result, there's just a significant enough downgrade at the quarterback position that owners might be better off staying away from his services. The ceiling of the Jets' offense will be very low from here on out.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 12/13/17 4:54pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Graham was blanked last week in Jacksonville on just two targets, so he is a bit of a risky fantasy play heading into Week 15. If healthy, Graham has a so-so matchup against a Rams pass defense ranking 11th in the NFL. The severity of his injury will be known better on Friday when the official injury report comes out.

  • Mike Davis - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 12/13/17 4:53pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Mike Davis (ribs) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13, due to his ribs injury.

    Huddle Up: The Rams rank 28th in the NFL against the rush, allowing 124.1 yards per game with 12 touchdowns through 13 games. Davis has some low-end RB2 potential if he is healthy and able to garner a majority of the backfield touches.

  • Cordarrelle Patterson - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 12/13/17 4:41pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Patterson has a golden opportunity, as he could face the Cowboys and their 23rd-ranked pass defense while starting opposite Michael Crabtree. That's assuming Amari Cooper (ankle) is unable to make his way back after aggravating his injury last week. If he starts, Patterson is a nice WR4 or flex fantasy option in deeper leagues.

  • Amari Cooper - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 12/13/17 4:39pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Cooper aggravated his injury in the Kansas City game last week, and he was limited to just 15 snaps. He is a risky play this week in fantasy. If he cannot go it would be Cordarrelle Patterson likely starting opposite Michael Crabtree.

  • Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 12/13/17 4:25pm ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Mariota has gone three straight games with less than 200 passing yards and has posted two touchdowns and four interceptions during that span. He will have a favorable matchup this week and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

  • Braxton Miller - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/13/17 4:06pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (concussion) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 13, as he remains in the concussion protocol.

    Huddle Up: It's uncertain if Miller will be able to suit up in Week 15, but he would be facing a difficult Jaguars pass defense. His fantasy window appears to be shut now, too, as Will Fuller was able to return from a multi-week injury to join DeAndre Hopkins.

  • Tom Savage - QB - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/13/17 4:02pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (concussion) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Savage is expected to be sidelined again in Week 15, so T.J. Yates is likely be under center against the stout defense of the Jaguars.

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/13/17 4:01pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Miller should be able to play, but check back officially on Friday when the injury report is released. He'll be up against a Jacksonville rush defense allowing 117.4 yards per game, 22nd in the NFL. He totaled 96 yards from scrimmage on 19 touches in the first meeting with the Jaguars back in Week 1.

  • Marqise Lee - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 12/13/17 4:00pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (foot) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Lee has five or more grabs in five of the past six outings, emerging as a decent WR4 or flex fantasy option in PPR leagues. He has slightly less value in standard play, although he has scored in three of the past six outings to help his value.

  • Blake Bortles - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 12/13/17 3:59pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) was able to practice in full Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Bortles has been listed on the injury report all season, but he continues to be fine to play. By now you know the drill.

  • Allen Hurns - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 12/13/17 3:59pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (ankle) was on the sidelines for practice on Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Hurns is a question mark for Week 15, and with the emergence of Dede Westbrook and the solid play of Marqise Lee it's uncertain if Hurns will have much of a roll down the stretch when healthy.

  • Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 12/13/17 3:58pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (quadriceps) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 13, due to a quadriceps injury.

    Huddle Up: Fournette should be good to go for Week 15, but circle back around Friday for the official injury report. He rolled for 26 carries, 100 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Texans, and that was against a healthy Houston defense with J.J. Watt, Whitney Mercilus, etc. He remains a must-start fantasy option whenever active.

  • Robert Woods - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 12/13/17 3:52pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods (shoulder) was limited during the team's walkthrough Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Woods is expected to return to the lineup in Week 15, but owners should monitor the situation to see if he suffered any setbacks. He has played well this season and could be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option against the Seattle Seahawks.

  • Jonathan Stewart - RB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 12/13/17 3:34pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (rest) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 13, as he was resting.

    Huddle Up: Stewart was getting the veteran's mid-week rest, and he certainly earned it going over 100 yards with three touchdowns against a stout Vikings defense last week. Despite the big game he should still be viewed as a RB3 or flex fantasy option against the Packers this week.
