Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Daniel Jones - QB - New York Giants
    Posted 8/23/19 6:19am ET

    New York Giants QB Daniel Jones is 25-for-30 for 369 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in three preseason games.

    Huddle Up: The only knock is that he has lost two fumbles. It's probably not enough to jettison Eli Manning out as the starter, but the clock is ticking. Jones is only worth owning in dynasty formats, but he could be an early season waiver claim.

  • Josh Rosen - QB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 8/22/19 10:34pm ET

    Miami Dolphins QB Josh Rosen completed 5 of 7 passes for 59 yards and ran four times for 23 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday, Aug. 22.

    Huddle Up: Rosen led a 99-yard touchdown drive and continues to show improvement, and ESPN's Cameron Wolfe added that Rosen appears that he'll be "ready sooner than later." While Wolfe also noted that Ryan Fitzpatrick is the likely Week 1 starter, it would make no sense for the Dolphins not to take a long look at Rosen during what's set to be a rebuilding year. While neither player holds single-year value, Rosen still has long-term upside.

  • Dede Westbrook - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 8/22/19 8:31pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook four of his seven targets for 29 yards and a touchdown in a 22-7 loss to the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Aug. 22.

    Huddle Up: Westbrook is the closest thing the Jaguars have to a No. 1 receiver at this point, but he is only a flex option for fantasy purposes.

  • JJ Arcega-Whiteside - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 8/22/19 8:23pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside caught eight of his nine targets for 104 yards and a touchdown in a 26-15 preseason loss to the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, Aug. 22.

    Huddle Up: A crowded receiving corps will make it hard for Arcega-Whiteside to provide consistent production this season, but his size makes him a potential nightmare in the red zone and a great stash candidate in keeper formats.

  • Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 8/22/19 8:18pm ET

    Updating an ongoing story, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton's (foot) X-rays revealed a left foot sprain Thursday, Aug. 22, and more information will be known tomorrow, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: While a definite timetable still remains to be seen, this is the best news Newton's fantasy owners could hope for at this point. Feel free to be cautiously optimistic, but having a backup plan in place isn't a bad idea in case he misses some time.

  • Miles Boykin - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 8/22/19 8:13pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens WR Miles Boykin's lone catch was a 44-yard reception in a 26-15 preseason win over the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, Aug. 22.

    Huddle Up: Boykin continues to show big-play potential, and if he enters Week 1 as a top-three receiver, he could be worth a late-round flier in case he emerges as one of Lamar Jackson's favorite targets.

  • Sony Michel - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 8/22/19 8:09pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Sony Michel rushed 10 times for 36 yards in a 10-3 preseason win over the Carolina Panthers Thursday, Aug. 22.

    Huddle Up: New England's tendency to use multiple backs and Michel's lack of involvement in the passing game limit his upside, especially in PPR formats, but he should still provide RB2 production as the main back between the tackles and near the goal line.

  • Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 8/22/19 7:39pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) is in a walking boot after suffering an injury in the preseason game against the New England Patriots Thursday, Aug. 22, according to head coach Ron Rivera, but Rivera said he had no update on the severity of the injury.

    Huddle Up: Newton's fantasy owners remain in limbo until a firm diagnosis is revealed. He has routinely been a top-five fantasy quarterback when healthy, but the injuries are starting to mount. Newton's owners may want to be proactive and hit the waiver wire for the best available quarterback.

  • Derrius Guice - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 8/22/19 7:32pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice rushed 11 times for 44 yards and caught one pass for four yards in a 19-7 preseason win over the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, Aug. 22.

    Huddle Up: Guice is Washington's most talented back, but he finds himself with plenty of competition for snaps after missing his rookie season with a knee injury. He is a RB3 with upside in redraft leagues, and he has long-term potential as a RB1 in dynasty formats.

  • Ito Smith - RB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 8/22/19 7:23pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Ito Smith rushed five times for 23 yards and a touchdown and caught one pass for nine yards in a 19-7 preseason loss to the Washington Redskins Thursday, Aug. 22.

    Huddle Up: Smith is expected to serve as Devonta Freeman's primary backup, and with Freeman coming off an injury, adding Smith as a handcuff is recommended.

  • C.J. Uzomah - TE - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 8/22/19 7:11pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah caught both of his targets for 54 yards and a touchdown in a 25-23 preseason loss to the Cincinnati Bengals Thursday, Aug. 22.

    Huddle Up: Given Tyler Eifert's long injury history, Uzomah could become a solid streaming option at some point this season.

  • Andy Dalton - QB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 8/22/19 7:09pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed seven of his 10 pass attempts for 104 yards and a touchdown in a 25-23 preseason loss to the New York Giants Thursday, Aug. 22.

  • Jordan Reed - TE - Washington Redskins
    Posted 8/22/19 6:49pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) exited the preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons and is being evaluated for a concussion Thursday, Aug. 22. He has been ruled out for the remainder of the game.

    Huddle Up: It's the same old story with Reed. He can provide TE1 production when he is on the field, but he simply cannot stay healthy. Feel free to stream him when he is available, but banking on him as your regular fantasy starter is a recipe for disaster.

  • Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 8/22/19 5:18pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) suffered a foot injury during the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 22, and will not return.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy players should monitor the situation to determine the severity of Newton's injury. He is a risky option because of his injury history but can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback if healthy.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 8/22/19 5:03pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, RB Aaron Jones and WR Davante Adams are among the 33 players that will not play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 22.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers, Jones and Adams likely will not play in a game again until Week 1. All three players will be weekly starting options in all fantasy leagues with Rodgers and Adams being one of the first players selected from their position.

  • A.J. Brown - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 8/22/19 4:29pm ET

    Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown is expected to play in the preseason game Sunday, Aug. 25. Brown said he is still working on his conditioning.

    Huddle Up: Brown missed a majority of training camp because of an injury but is still on track to becoming a solid part of the team's passing game. He can be a late-round option in fantasy leagues as depth at the position.

  • Will Fuller - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 8/22/19 3:04pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) left practice early Thursday, Aug. 22, but head coach Bill O'Brien said Fuller is not hurt and that the team is managing his snaps during practice.

    Huddle Up: Fuller is coming back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament but is on track to play Week 1. He has shown a good chemistry with Deshaun Watson in the past and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Nick Foles - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 8/22/19 1:53pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars QB Nick Foles has reportedly 'shown good chemistry' with WRs Dede Westbrook, Chris Conley and DJ Chark Jr. in practice, according to the team's website.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy owners should get a peek at the chemistry when they the Jaguars square off with the Miami Dolphins on Thursday night. Jacksonville may be an underrated source of passing-game production this season, as new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo has shown a heavy tendency to lean on the aerial attack. Westbrook figures to be the only receiver worth starting in fantasy right away, however, presumably as a low-end WR3 or flex option.

  • Amari Cooper - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 8/22/19 1:26pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (foot) is dealing with an intrinsic muscle strain in his foot as opposed to plantar fasciitis, according to Mickey Spagnola of the team's website.

    Huddle Up: The foot's intrinsic muscles stabilize the foot much like the core muscles in a person's spine stabilizes and protects the spine. Neither the team nor Cooper seem overly concerned about the injury, so fantasy owners can probably breathe easy ... for now. Nevertheless, expect Cooper to get rest days and be a regular on the injury report this season.

  • Keke Coutee - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 8/22/19 11:18am ET

    Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee (ankle) remains sidelined with a sprained ankle, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

    Huddle Up: This will play nicely into the narrative that Coutee is injury-prone and/or a slow healer. For what it's worth, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggested the injury was "not major" at the time it happened, so it's probably best for owners to wait for another update before getting too concerned. Duke Johnson would likely benefit the most if Coutee is forced to miss regular-season action, while DeAndre Carter would likely step into Coutee's slot role and be worthy of a bench spot in deeper leagues.
