Jacksonville Jaguars WR Keelan Cole had three catches for 99 yards and a touchdown Sunday, Dec. 10, against the Seattle Seahawks. He led all receivers in yards in the game.
Huddle Up: Cole has scored two weeks in a row, but he has just six targets combined the last two weeks. He's on the fringe of a waiver pickup.

Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson was held to two grabs for 26 yards on three targets in Week 14 against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Nelson is a big-play receiver with some fantasy value in leagues rewarding longer touchdown, but he doesn't see enough touches to warrant usage outside of the deepest standard leagues.

Arizona Cardinals TE Ricky Seals-Jones was limited to one reception for 20 yards on three targets in Week 14 against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Seals-Jones had been humming along with a three scores in two games from Week 11 and Week 12, but he has just three grabs for 64 yards over the past two games with no touchdowns. After emerging as a sleeper tight end in deeper fantasy leagues, he is back to TE2 status in most formats again.

Detroit Lions RB Tion Green rushed five times for 15 yards in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Green was up with Ameer Abdullah on the shelf and he was working as the primary backup to Theo Riddick. However, he still has very minimal fantasy appeal unless something also happens to Riddick.

Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 8, and he is listed as questionable for the Week 14 game against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Nelson has two or fewer catches in each of the past seven games, and he hasn't scored a touchdown in 10 consecutive outings. He has some fantasy appeal due to his big-play ability, but keep him on the bench since he is uncertain to play.

Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 6.
Huddle Up: Nelson has been held to two or fewer catches in each of the last seven games and has gone 10 games without a touchdown. He has some value because of his big-play ability but can be benched if owners have better options.

Arizona Cardinals TE Ricky Seals-Jones finished with two receptions for 44 yards on five targets in Week 13 against the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: While Seals-Jones was held out of the end zone for the first time in three outings, he has emerged as a decent low-end TE1 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. He really seems to have a nice rapport with Blaine Gabbert.

Detroit Lions RB Tion Green carried 11 times for 51 yards and a touchdown in a 44-20 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 13.
Huddle Up: Green played well his NFL debut, but he doesn't need to be added unless Ameer Abdullah is going to remain sidelined in Week 14.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Keelan Cole finished with three receptions, 49 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the Indianapolis Colts for his first NFL score.
Huddle Up: Despite the score the rookie from Kentucky Wesleyan is still battling Marqise Lee and Dede Westbrook for targets, so he isn't a recommended fantasy option outside of the very, very deepest of leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler rushed four times for 19 yards in Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns and he added two receptions for 21 yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Ekeler has been a decent RB3 or flex fantasy play in leagues of 12 or more teams, but he'll likely need something to happen to Melvin Gordon before he is a fantasy must-start across the board.

Arizona Cardinals TE Ricky Seals-Jones (rest) practiced in full for a second straight day Friday, Dec. 1, and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 13 game with the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: Seals-Jones has quickly emerged as a low-end TE1 with three touchdowns over the past two games. He should see a solid amount of targets, especially if Troy Niklas (back, knee) cannot play.

Arizona Cardinals TE Ricky Seals-Jones (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 30.
Huddle Up: Seals-Jones has received a solid role in the passing game over the last few weeks and should see a decent amount of targets again this week. He can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

Arizona Cardinals TE Ricky Seals-Jones (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 29.
Huddle Up: Seals-Jones likely will be ready to play in Week 13, but owners should monitor the situation. He has recorded 126 yards and three touchdowns over the last two games and appears to have a solid role in the passing game. He could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

Arizona Cardinals TE Ricky Seals-Jones posted four receptions for 72 yards and a touchdown in the Week 12 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Seals-Jones didn't even have a catch until a week ago, now he is looking like a fantasy sensation. He has three touchdowns over the past two weeks and led the team in receiving yardage in this win. Apparently he and Blaine Gabbert worked together when the quarterback was a backup, as they have a nice rapport. Seals-Jones should probably only be trusted as a TE2, but the past two weekends he has performed like a TE1. If you're desperate for a TE, he isn't a bad add off the waiver wire.

Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (chest) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 24, and is not on the injury report for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Nelson has a chance to see more targets this week with John Brown out of the lineup. Nelson has been fairly quiet over the last month and has been targeted at least five time in only one of the last five games. Owners probably can find better options for their lineups.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler caught three passes for 55 yards against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 12. He also rushed for 15 yards on six carries against the game.
Huddle Up: Ekeler has been involved in the running and passing game over the last few months and will continue to receive a decent amount of touches each game. He has a chance to be a flex option in deeper leagues next week because of the matchup.

Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (chest) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 23.
Huddle Up: Nelson appears to have a solid chance to play in Week 12 as long as he does not suffer a setback over the next few days. He has been held to under 20 yards in each of the last three games and can be avoided this week against a tough matchup.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler rushed six times for 40 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Buffalo Bills and he added two receptions for 18 yards.
Huddle Up: Ekeler has been carving out a nice little role for himself recently, although Melvin Gordon still continues to be the unquestioned No. 1 back. Still, Ekeler has proven he can be relied upon as an RB3 or flex fantasy option. The Chargers meet the Cowboys on Thanksgiving in Week 12.

Arizona Cardinals TE Ricky Seals-Jones posted three receptions for 54 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Week 11 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: The former standout at Texas A&M will certainly be gaining attention from fantasy owners heading into Week 12 against the Jaguars. Still, he is more of a wait-and-see option than someone to plug into the starting lineup despite the two scores.

Posted: 11/12/2017 7:05pm et
Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler ran 10 times for 42 yards and a fumble and caught five passes for 77 yards and two touchdowns in a 20-17 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 10.
Huddle Up: It's too soon to call Ekeler the next Danny Woodhead for the Chargers' offense, but his usage is creeping up, and he could have flex value in PPR formats going forward. He needs to be owned in almost all leagues at this point.

Updating an earlier report, Houston Texans OT Duane Brown is unlikely to be traded, and he'll be available to play for the final 10 games.
Huddle Up: Brown's return only improves rookie sensation Deshaun Watson's fantasy potential the rest of the way. He is the highest-scoring quarterback over the last five weeks. He'll be a midrange QB1 option against the Seattle Seahawks next week.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler rushed seven times for 38 yards in Week 7 against the Denver Broncos and he added four receptions for six yards and a score.
Huddle Up: Ekeler picked up the slack with Melvin Gordon struggling a bit against Denver's front seven. The rookie is pretty shifty and appears to be someone head coach Anthony Lynn wants to incorporate much into the plan, sort of like a poor man's Danny Woodhead. However, as long as Gordon is healthy then Ekeler's fantasy ceiling is rather limited.

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant posted seven receptions for 63 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers on a game-high 10 targets in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers. He tied 'Bullet' Bob Hayes for most touchdowns by a receiver in franchise history.
Huddle Up: Bryant hasn't had a dominant season, as he has failed to go for 100 yards in each of his six outings. However, he has found the end zone in each of the past two games and four of the past five. He remains a solid WR2 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 8 against the Redskins.

Posted: 10/22/2017 5:14pm et
Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson racked up two catches for 35 yards on five targets in Week 7 against the Los Angeles Rams in London.
Huddle Up: Nelson rebounded after getting blanked last week. Still, he hasn't found the end zone since Week 2 and remains nothing more than a WR4 or WR5 heading into Week 9 after the team's bye.

New York Giants offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan said they revamped the run game to use more traps, quick dives and outside zone prior to their Week 6 game when the Giants rushed 32 times for 148 yards against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Orleans Darkwa rushed for 117 yards against Denver, but it remains to be seen if his performance and the performance of the Giants' running game in general was a fluke. Darkwa is worth stashing, but he is too risky to start against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 7.

Atlanta Falcons WR Marvin Hall posted a 40-yard touchdown in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins on his only target.
Huddle Up: Someone had to step up with Mohamed Sanu on the shelf and it was Hall making the big play. Despite the touchdown score he shouldn't be a blip on most people's fantasy radar heading into Week 7.

Posted: 9/22/2017 4:37pm et
Detroit Lions C Travis Swanson (ankle) is listed as questionable for the Week 3 game and still has a chance to play, but OG Graham Glasgow likely would move to center if Swanson is ruled out. OG Joe Dahl (leg) could move to left guard to replace Glasgow, but he is also listed as questionable for the game.
Huddle Up: Detroit's offensive line problems probably would affect their offensive scheme against the Atlanta Falcons. Matt Stafford may be asked to throw more short passes so he can avoid the pass rush. Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick could also be more involved in the passing game since the Falcons have struggled against pass-catching backs. Stafford can still be considered a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in most leagues, while Abdullah and Riddick would have more value in point-per-receptions leagues.
