Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Alshon Jeffery - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/21/18 7:12pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery caught five passes for 85 yards and two touchdowns in a 38-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Jeffery has found a rhythm with Nick Foles during the playoffs, and after hauling in nine touchdowns during the regular season, he'll carry WR2 upside into 2018.

  • Zach Ertz - TE - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/21/18 7:07pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz caught eight passes on eight targets for 93 yards in a 38-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: It was a tough matchup on paper, but Ertz was unstoppable in this one. He's entrenched himself as a TE1 heading into 2018.

  • LeGarrette Blount - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/21/18 7:00pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount rushed six times for 21 yards and a touchdown in a 38-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Blount powered his way in for a short touchdown, but he has been taking more and more of a backseat to Jay Ajayi in recent weeks. He looks like a touchdown-dependent option at this point.

  • Jay Ajayi - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/21/18 6:54pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi rushed 18 times for 73 yards and caught three passes for 26 yards in a 38-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Ajayi has emerged as Philadelphia's top back during the postseason, showing RB2 potential for 2018.

  • Jerick McKinnon - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 1/21/18 6:50pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed 10 times for 40 yards in the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Jan. 21, and he added 11 receptions for 86 yards on 12 targets.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon might have played his final game in purple and white, as he heads into the offseason as an impending unrestricted free agent. His fantasy value in 2018 obviously hinges on whether he lands in a favorable situation or not.

  • Nick Foles - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/21/18 6:42pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles completed 26 of his 33 pass attempts for 352 yards and three touchdowns in a 38-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Foles was supposed to be a liability for the Eagles, but he ended up shredding the best defense in the NFL. He will certainly boost his long-term stock if he can manage a similar showing in the Super Bowl.

  • Case Keenum - QB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 1/21/18 6:15pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum completed 28 of his 48 pass attempts for 271 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Jan. 21.

    Huddle Up: Keenum did a good job holding down the fort with Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater missing huge chunks of the season due to injury, and he almost carried them to the Super Bowl. He will head into the offseason as an impending unrestricted free agent. The way he played he might find a starting job in 2018.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/21/18 6:14pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (concussion) has entered the league's mandated concussion protocol, but there is optimism he'll be ready to return for Super Bowl LII against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Feb. 4.

    Huddle Up: Gronk was clocked on a helmet-to-helmet hit in the first half of the AFC Championship Game and unable to return. He has two weeks to shake the cobwebs and get himself ready for the big game.

  • Case Keenum - QB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 1/21/18 6:13pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum could receive the franchise tag, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

    Huddle Up: Minnesota will have some big decisions to make about the quarterback position this offseason. If Keenum does end up back under center to start 2018, he will be worth a look as a QB2.

  • Chris Hogan - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/21/18 5:25pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan managed two grabs for 20 yards on four targets in the AFC Championship Game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, Jan. 21.

    Huddle Up: Hogan missed a chunk of time down the stretch due to a shoulder injury and he was clearly behind both Brandin Cooks and Danny Amendola in the pecking order for receptions. He'll have two weeks to rest his bumps and bruises before the Super Bowl in Minneapolis.

  • Danny Amendola - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/21/18 5:25pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola finished with seven receptions for 84 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the AFC Championship Game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, Jan. 21.

    Huddle Up: One of Amendola's touchdowns came on a nice toe-tap grab in the back of the end zone. He and Brandin Cooks really picked up the slack once Rob Gronkowski went down with a head injury in the first half. He'll be a big target in the Super Bowl in Minneapolis in two weeks.

  • Brandin Cooks - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/21/18 5:24pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks finished the AFC Championship Game against the Jacksonville Jaguars with six receptions for 100 yards on eight targets.

    Huddle Up: Cooks posted the big yardage and Danny Amendola had a pair of touchdowns, giving Tom Brady a pair of reliable targets once Rob Gronkowski left the game with a head injury.

  • Dion Lewis - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/21/18 5:10pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis ran nine times for 34 yards in the AFC Championship Game against the Jacksonville Jaguars and he tacked on seven receptions for 32 yards on eight targets.

    Huddle Up: Lewis led the way with 16 total touches and 66 yards, although he also had a lost fumble. He'll be the back of choice in the Super Bowl in Minneapolis in two weeks, too. He finished the regular season with 896 yards and six rushing touchdowns.

  • Tom Brady - QB - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/21/18 5:09pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 26 of his 38 pass attempts for 290 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the AFC Championship Game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, Jan. 21.

    Huddle Up: Brady will be playing in his eighth Super Bowl in 16 NFL seasons, as the legend continues to grow. Love him or hate him, he is a winner who has found a way to get it done, usually without a huge supporting cast in the skill positions around him.

  • Dede Westbrook - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 1/21/18 4:11pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook managed just one receptions for 29 yards on three targets in the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots on Sunday, Jan. 21.

    Huddle Up: Westbrook has plenty of big-play potential, but a core muscle injury caused him to miss a huge chunk of the season. He showed signs of life down the stretch and he should benefit from a full offseason program if he can stay healthy. Westbrook could be a fantasy sleeper into 2018 depending on how the personnel moves go during the offseason, as Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson are each impending unrestricted free agents.

  • Marcedes Lewis - TE - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 1/21/18 4:10pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis had one catch for four yards and his first-career NFL postseason touchdown in the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots on Sunday, Jan. 21.

    Huddle Up: Lewis didn't factor into the game plan much after his second quarter scoring grab, although he is always instrumental as a blocking tight end. The veteran should be back playing a healthy amount of snaps in 2018, but he isn't much of a fantasy factor at this point of his career.

  • Corey Grant - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 1/21/18 4:08pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Corey Grant ran one for two yards in the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots on Sunday, Jan. 21, and he added three receptions for 59 yards.

    Huddle Up: Grant showed tremendous hands out of the backfield and bursts of speed, and he could be someone who finds himself with a larger role in 2018 depending on the team's offseason personnel moves.

  • Marqise Lee - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 1/21/18 4:01pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee posted four receptions for 41 yards on a team-high eight targets in the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots on Sunday, Jan. 21.

    Huddle Up: Lee showed glimpses of brilliance during the regular season, helping fill the early void once Allen Robinson went down with a season-ending injury. He heads into the offseason as a impending unrestricted free agent, so his fantasy outlook for 2018 is a bit unclear.

  • Allen Hurns - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 1/21/18 3:44pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns finished with six receptions and 80 yards on seven receptions in the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots on Sunday, Jan. 21.

    Huddle Up: Hurns did a decent job when he was healthy, stepping up once Allen Robinson went down with a season-ending injury. However, he is normally more of a WR4 or WR5 in fantasy leagues, and should be treated as such heading into 2018.

  • T.J. Yeldon - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 1/21/18 3:43pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon rushed five times for 25 yards in the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots on Sunday, Jan. 21, and he added two catches for six yards on three targets.

    Huddle Up: Yeldon didn't do a whole lot in the regular season, but he did step up in the postseason to hold his own when Leonard Fournette needed a breather. If he can ascend to and keep the No. 2 spot behind Fournette in 2018, he might be worth a look in deeper leagues as a handcuff, particularly PPR formats. It depends on the team's personnel moves in the offseason.
