Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • DeVante Parker - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 10/17/18 2:06pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (quadriceps) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Parker was rather limited in the game last week against the Chicago Bears, and fantasy owners should err on the side of caution and wait to see him make it through a full game without any restrictions before trusting him again. Parker has a ton of ability, but his propensity for injury always makes him a risky fantasy option.

  • John Brown - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 10/17/18 2:05pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens WR John Brown (non-injury related) was absent from practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: This may have just been a day off for Brown, but check back tomorrow to see if he returns to practice. Assuming he's fine and plays this weekend, he has a tremendous matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and should be started as a WR2.

  • Danny Amendola - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 10/17/18 2:00pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Danny Amendola (not injury related) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Amendola was simply getting some time off due to his veteran status, and probably due to his penchant for injury, too. He is expected to be ready for the Week 7 game against the Detroit Lions so start him as you normally would.

  • Kerryon Johnson - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 10/17/18 1:34pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (ankle) was listed as a full participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Johnson is coming off a bye week and he was able to practice in full. He should be 100 percent healthy and ready to go for Sunday's game in Miami, but circle back around Friday when the official injury designations come out just to be safe. He is a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option in Week 7 if healthy.

  • T.Y. Hilton - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 10/17/18 1:26pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (chest, hamstring) was listed as a full participant in practice on Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: That's a great sign that he'll be able to return for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills after missing last week's contest on the road against the New York Jets. Circle back around Friday for his official injury designation. If he practices in full all week and is removed from the injury report, plug him back into the active fantasy lineup immediately.

  • Jack Doyle - TE - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 10/17/18 1:23pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (hip) was unable to take part in practice on Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Doyle has been sidelined since Week 2 due to his hip injury, meaning more reps for Erik Swoope behind Eric Ebron. When Doyle returns, he is likely to see limited targets with Ebron playing pretty well.

  • Jameis Winston - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 10/17/18 1:10pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (hip) practiced fully Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: The Cleveland Browns have yielded just nine touchdowns while picking off nine passes so far this year, but that doesn't make Winston completely avoidable. Don't expect the same output from last week, but at worst he's a fine start for those with quarterbacks on bye.

  • Brock Osweiler - QB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 10/17/18 1:08pm ET

    Miami Dolphins QB Brock Osweiler will make the start in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions in place of the injured QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder), head coach Adam Gase announced Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Osweiler went for over 300 yards in an overtime victory against the Chicago Bears last week, and Tannehill is expected to miss anywhere from 1-3 weeks. Despite his decent numbers against the Bears in Week 6, Osweiler is only worth using in deeper fantasy if you're desperate due to bye weeks and need a streaming option.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 10/17/18 12:50pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (back) was full go in practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Fitzgerald has been one of the biggest fantasy disappointments of the 2018 season. We need to wait until he starts performing consistently until we plug him into starting lineups on a weekly basis. As for this week, start him as a flex if you're desperate.

  • Case Keenum - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/17/18 12:41pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum (forearm) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Keenum has been underwhelming in his first year at the helm of the Broncos. The Arizona Cardinals' pass rush and pass defense isn't one to turn a cheek to. Keep Keenum on the bench if he's still rostered.

  • David Njoku - TE - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/17/18 12:24pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (knee) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Njoku has improved since Baker Mayfield was named the starting quarterback. He has received double-digit targets in each of his last two games and scored his first touchdowns of the year last week. In a scrumptious matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Njoku is comfortably in TE1 territory.

  • Chris Thompson - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/17/18 12:16pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (rib, knee) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: If Thompson can stay on the practice field throughout the week then it will be a good sign for his availability this Sunday. When healthy he's a solid PPR RB2 candidate.

  • Greg Olsen - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 10/17/18 11:55am ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Olsen saw seven targets last week, catching four passes for 48 yards. His limited status is likely just a precaution. Consider him a borderline TE1 going into Week 7.

  • Ryan Tannehill - QB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 10/17/18 11:25am ET

    Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) has officially been ruled out for Week 7, as expected, according to head coach Adam Gase.

    Huddle Up: Brock Osweiler will take the quarterback reins versus the Detroit Lions. He's not a recommended starter in traditional leagues, but you can do worse than Osweiler as a bye-week replacement or cheap DFS play.

  • Ryan Grant - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 10/17/18 10:38am ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR Ryan Grant (ankle) was not able to practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Grant has underwhelmed through six games this year even with T.Y. Hilton out of commission. Hilton could return this week, but even if he doesn't Grant would be a risky WR3 or flex proposition.

  • Jack Doyle - TE - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 10/17/18 10:30am ET

    Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (hip) was held out of practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Doyle has not progressed in weeks and doesn't appear to be ready to play this week either. Eric Ebron has been tearing up the gridiron in Ebron's absence and deserves TE1 recognition.

  • Josh Allen - QB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 10/17/18 9:05am ET

    Updating previous reports, Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen (elbow) is week to week with a sprained elbow.

    Huddle Up: Allen is of no use outside of dynasty leagues, which you should keep ahold of him in.

  • Derek Anderson - QB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 10/17/18 8:43am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Derek Anderson will start in place of QB Josh Allen (elbow) in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Anderson has no fantasy value, but he could bring stability to the offense that Nathan Peterman did not. That would allow for the other skill positions, like LeSean McCoy, to have some chance against the Indianapolis Colts.

  • T.J. Yeldon - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 10/17/18 7:07am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (foot, ankle) is out of practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Jamaal Charles might be thrust into the lead back role against the Houston Texans. However, he doesn't provide enough upside to warrant a flex start.

  • Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 10/17/18 7:06am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) is out of practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Fournette is iffy for Week 7 against the Houston Texans, and T.J. Yeldon (ankle, foot) is also banged up. Jamaal Charles might be the lead back, but he has very little upside in fantasy.
