Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Calvin Ridley - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 10/19/18 2:04pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Ridley appears to have a chance to play in the Week 7 game, but owners will know more about his status in the next day or two. He is a risky option because the Falcons play on Monday Night Football but could be a No. 3 receiver or flex option if he plays.

  • C.J. Uzomah - TE - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 10/19/18 1:57pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (shoulder) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 19 after a pair of limited practices earlier in the week, and he has been removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 7 game with the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Uzomah will hold down the tight end position with Tyler Kroft (foot) ruled out and Tyler Eifert done for the season. He could be quite a nice sleeper for those looking for streaming options due to bye weeks. The Chiefs rank 31st in the NFL in passing yardage allowed.

  • A.J. Green - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 10/19/18 1:52pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (not injury related) was able to practice in full Friday, Oct. 19 and he was lifted from the injury report ahead of the Week 7 game with the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Green has the chance to blow up against the Chiefs, who rank 31st in the NFL with 340.3 yards per game allowing through the air. They have also yielded 31 pass plays of 20 or more yards, so fantasy owners should expect a big night.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 10/19/18 1:51pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hip) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Sanu probably will have to practice Saturday, Oct. 20, if he wants a chance to play in Week 7. Owners should keep an eye on the situation because he is a starting option if he plays, but he could be benched if other options are available.

  • Andy Dalton - QB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 10/19/18 1:50pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (back) practiced in full for the third straight day Friday, Oct. 17 and he has been removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 7 game with the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Dalton will be facing the 31st-ranked pass defense in the NFL, yielding 340.3 yards per game with 31 pass plays of 20 yard or more allowed. Dalton is a very good low-end TE1 option this week playing under the Sunday night lights.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 10/19/18 1:42pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle, back) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 19, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski should receive his normal workload this week even though he is dealing with multiple injuries. He has recorded at least 75 yards in each of the last two games and should be a No. 1 tight end in all leagues.

  • Julian Edelman - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 10/19/18 1:36pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (heel) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 19, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Edelman has recorded 11 receptions and 111 yards in his first two games of the season and should continue to be a popular target for Tom Brady. Edelman should be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver in all leagues.

  • Josh Gordon - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 10/19/18 1:31pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 19, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Gordon has been more involved in the passing game over the last few weeks and should continue to see a solid amount of targets during games. He can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option for owners this week against the Chicago Bears.

  • John Brown - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 10/19/18 12:56pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens WR John Brown (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 19, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Brown has been a bit quiet over the last few games but has been targeted at least seven times in four of the last five games. He should have some success against the New Orleans Saints this week and could be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.

  • Carlos Hyde - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/19/18 12:45pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Carlos Hyde was traded to the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for a fifth-round pick Friday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: The time has come for Nick Chubb and Duke Johnson to rule the Cleveland backfield. Chubb has been very impressive in limited duty so far, although it will be interesting to see how much the coaching staff wants to increase his workload after (foolishly) limiting him to no more than three carries in any game thus far. Nevertheless, Chubb immediately enters the RB2 conversation with his expected workload, while Duke Johnson should see enough work as his change-of-pace to be a regular flex option and perhaps more.

  • Evan Engram - TE - New York Giants
    Posted 10/19/18 12:43pm ET

    New York Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Engram appears to be on track to play in Week 7 and should have a good role in the passing game against the Atlanta Falcons. He can be considered a No. 1 tight end in all leagues.

  • Carson Wentz - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 10/19/18 12:37pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (back) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 19, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Wentz has been playing well since returning to the starting lineup and has seven touchdowns and zero interceptions over the last three games. He should be considered a weekly starting option in all leagues as long as he stays healthy.

  • Carlos Hyde - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/19/18 12:29pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Carlos Hyde was traded to the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for a fifth-round pick Friday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: It's unclear at this point whether or not the Jaguars are simply fortifying their backfield after dealing with injuries at the position all season long, or if this hints at the possibility that Leonard Fournette may not be returning anytime soon from his hamstring injury. It's also possible Jacksonville wants to use T.J. Yeldon in more of a split backfield now while giving itself a capable backup with two years left on his contract for Fournette in 2019 and 2020 with Yeldon headed to free agency after this season.

  • Jameis Winston - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 10/19/18 12:17pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 19, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Winston is coming off a terrific Week 6 performance and should have a favorable matchup again this week. He can be a solid No. 1 fantasy quarterback in all leagues in Week 7.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 10/19/18 12:08pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (groin) is expected to miss at least one month due to a groin injury after undergoing an MRI earlier in the week.

    Huddle Up: There is reportedly been some initial talk of Lynch landing on the Reserve/Injured list, so it is possible we may not see him again this season. While fantasy owners of Doug Martin may be feeling good about their investment at the moment, Martin hasn't done much to generate excitement in his first year with the Raiders, averaging 3.7 yards per carry on 27 attempts. As a result, Jalen Richard could earn a few more early-down snaps and enter flex consideration on a weekly basis.

  • David Njoku - TE - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 10/19/18 12:03pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 19, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Njoku has been targeted 23 times in the last two games and has posted at least 50 yards in each of the last three games. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end this week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

  • Danny Amendola - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 10/19/18 11:49am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Danny Amendola (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 19, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Amendola appeared to have good chemistry with Brock Osweiler last week and finished with eight catches for 59 yards. He is not a must-start option, but owners in deeper point-per-reception leagues could consider Amendola a flex option.

  • Frank Gore - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 10/19/18 11:45am ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Frank Gore (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 19, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Gore has received at least 11 carries in each of the last three games and is coming off his first 100-yard game of the season. He can be considered a flex option in standard leagues this week against the Detroit Lions.

  • DeVante Parker - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 10/19/18 11:43am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 19, but is listed as questionable for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Parker appears to have a good chance to play this week, but owners will need to check the inactive list to make sure. He is a risky option because of his lack of production this season and can be benched if owners have better options.

  • Emmanuel Sanders - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/19/18 11:41am ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) is 'fine' according to head coach Vance Joseph after Sanders was pulled early from the game in Week 7 against the Arizona Cardinals.

    Huddle Up: The lopsided nature of the game was probably the determining factor in Sanders not returning, although he did more than enough in the two-plus quarters he played to make his fantasy owners happy. He'll be a high-end WR2/low-end WR1 option in Week 8 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
