Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • David Njoku - TE - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/16/18 1:34pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku caught four passes for 20 yards against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Njoku may receive some more targets during game moving forward but should only be a No. 2 tight end for owners at this point.

  • Eric Ebron - TE - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/16/18 1:32pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron posted three receptions, 26 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Week 2 against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Ebron has fit in nicely with the Colts, connecting with Andrew Luck for a touchdown in each of the first two games. The former Lions tight end has Jack Doyle to contend with for targets, and health has always been an issue for Ebron. Despite Doyle's presence, Ebron is a low-end TE1 if he can stay on the field. The Colts travel to meet the Eagles in Week 3.

  • Ryan Grant - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/16/18 1:29pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR Ryan Grant posted two grabs for 30 yards on two targets in Week 2 against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Grant, who spent his first four NFL seasons in Washington, was unable to make much of a dent against his old team. He opened with eight catches for 59 yards on nine targets, but was not nearly as much of a factor in this one. He remains nothing more than a WR5 in deeper fantasy leagues heading into Week 3 at Philadelphia.

  • Rashard Higgins - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/16/18 1:29pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins caught five passes for 47 yards against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Higgins likely will move up the depth chart and be the No. 3 receiver for the Browns with Josh Gordon leaving. Owners can consider adding him as a depth receiver, but he likely will not be in the starting lineup often.

  • T.Y. Hilton - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/16/18 1:25pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton racked up seven receptions for 83 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets in the Week 2 game against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Hilton certainly is glad to have his quarterback Andrew Luck back under center after a lost season in 2017. The receiver has 12 receptions for 129 yards and two touchdowns through two games, and he has been targeted 11 times in each outing. He is back to low-end WR1 or must-start WR2 status in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 3 at Philadelphia.

  • Nyheim Hines - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/16/18 1:23pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines rushed four times for just seven yards in the Week 2 game against the Washington Redskins, but he was able to find the end zone.

    Huddle Up: Hines had some issues hanging onto the football during training camp and the preseason, so he is well behind Jordan Wilkins and Marlon Mack in the pecking order for carries. He's a player worth watching as the season goes on, but he isn't someone to rely on regularly in redraft leagues heading into Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

  • Jarvis Landry - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/16/18 1:22pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry caught five passes for 69 yards against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Landry continues to be a valuable option for owners in point-per-reception leagues because of the number of catches he has each week. He can continue to be a No. 3 receiver for owners next week against the New York Jets.

  • Marlon Mack - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/16/18 1:19pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (hamstring) rushed 10 times for 34 yards in the Week 2 game against the Washington Redskins and he added a two-yard reception.

    Huddle Up: Mack showed a little bit of rust in the return from a hamstring injury, averaging just 3.4 yards per carry to 6.1 YPC for Jordan Wilkins. The two are likely to keep battling for touches as the season progresses, with head coach Frank Reich riding the hot hand. It's not an optimal situation for fantasy owners. The Colts meet the Eagles on the road in Week 3.

  • Antonio Callaway - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/16/18 1:17pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Antonio Callaway caught three passes for 81 yards and one touchdown against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Callaway will be receiving more playing time with the team getting rid of Josh Gordon, so he will be a popular waiver pickup this week. He will not be a weekly starting option but can be used against favorable matchups.

  • Jordan Wilkins - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/16/18 1:09pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Jordan Wilkins rushed 10 times for 61 yards in the Week 2 game against the Washington Redskins and he added two grabs for three yards on his two targets.

    Huddle Up: Wilkins split the carries down the middle with Marlon Mack, who was back from an injury. He was much more effective than Mack, however, averaging 6.1 yards per carry to just 3.4 YPC for Mack. As long as there is a split of the carries, though, both players have a rather limited ceiling as far as fantasy appeal. The Colts travel to meet the Eagles in Week 3.

  • Andrew Luck - QB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/16/18 1:04pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck completed 21-of-31 passes for 179 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 2 road win against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Luck was sacked twice and he was picked off a couple of times, but he still did a decent enough job thanks to the two scores. T.Y. Hilton is certainly glad to have him back, and Luck has jelled nicely with new tight end Eric Ebron, too. He'll look for another road victory in Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

  • Tyrod Taylor - QB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/16/18 1:02pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor went 22-for-30 for 246 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2. He also rushed for 26 yards on four carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Taylor improved on his passing numbers from Week 1 but did not have a great performance. He will be facing an improved New York Jets defense in Week 3 and probably should be kept on the bench in most leagues.

  • LeSean McCoy - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/16/18 12:47pm ET

    Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (ribs) left the Week 2 game early because of injured ribs and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if McCoy will miss any additional time. McCoy is a weekly starting option in all leagues when healthy, but Chris Ivory would be at least a flex option if McCoy misses time.

  • Jay Ajayi - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/16/18 12:33pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi (back) was able to return to the Week 2 game after missing time because of a back injury.

    Huddle Up: Ajayi appears to be fine, but owners should check for any update on his status in the next day or two. He likely will continue to be the starting running back if he is healthy and can be a No. 2 running back in standard leagues.

  • Sony Michel - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/16/18 12:14pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) is officially active for the team's Week 2 game.

    Huddle Up: Michel will be making his season debut but his role in the offense is uncertain at this point. Owners may want to see how he is used in the offense before considering him a fantasy option.

  • Rex Burkhead - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 9/16/18 12:13pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (concussion) is officially active for the team's Week 2 game.

    Huddle Up: Burkhead should receive most of the carries in the game and probably will also be involved in the passing game. He will be facing a tough Jacksonville Jaguars defensive but can still be a No. 2 running back or flex option.

  • Marquise Goodwin - WR - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 9/16/18 11:45am ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin (quadriceps) is inactive and won't play Sunday Sept. 16, in the Week 2 game against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Intriguing ookie Dante Pettis is expected to get the start in Goodwin's place and is flex dart-throw if Goodwin owners are out of better options, but Pierre Garcon is really the only Niners wideout who can be trusted in Week 2 fantasy lineups.

  • Jordan Wilkins - RB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/16/18 11:20am ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Jordan Wilkins (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in the Week 2 game and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Wilkins still has a role in the offense even with Marlon Mack back from injury, so owners should monitor the situation. Mack would receive a bigger role if Wilkins misses time and would be at least a flex option.

  • Mike Wallace - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/16/18 10:52am ET

    Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles WR Mike Wallace (ankle) has been ruled out for remainder of the Week 2 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, Sept. 16, with an ankle injury.

    Huddle Up: Wallace caught one pass for 3 yards in Week 1, and didn't have a reception Sunday before getting carted off in the first quarter. With Alshon Jeffery inactive, it's a young Philly WR corps, headed by Nelson Agholor, for Nick Foles.

  • Blaine Gabbert - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/16/18 10:42am ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Blaine Gabbert started the Week 2 game against the Houston Texans on Sunday, Sept. 16.

    Huddle Up: Starter Marcus Mariota was active, but his elbow injury suffered in Week 1 still obviously isn't close to 100 percent. And with the Titans jumping out to a 14-0 lead, including a first-quarter Gabbert-to-Taywan Taylor scoring pass, don't be surprised if the backup closes out the contest under center.
