Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 3/19/19 11:55pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette has and will continue to work out with new University of Wyoming director of sports performance Ben Iannacchione, who spent six of the past seven seasons working in the strength and conditioning program at LSU - Fournette's alma mater. Fournette also spoke with executive vice president of football operations Tom Coughlin, who still has 'full confidence' in the player he selected No. 4 overall in 2017. 'With Leonard, a prepared Leonard coming into camp with a mindset that he discussed and we talked about ... I have full confidence in him. He does have some things he's got to prove when he comes back about his preparation, but he's a young, young player, he loves football, had an outstanding year, had a very disappointing year, and I think he wants to - we want him to be a great player and I think he's in the same mindset,' Coughlin said.

    Huddle Up: Fournette was among the bigger disappointments in fantasy in 2018, twice missing an extended period of time with hamstring injuries and earning a suspension for coming off the sidelines to throw a punch in Week 12. Owners have every right to avoid him for his lack of durability, but he is also shaping up to be a value pick if he slides into the late third round area of fantasy drafts. Until further notice, he will still be the focal point of the offense. He'll also have plenty of motivation on what should be an improved offense.

  • Randall Cobb - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 3/19/19 2:48pm ET

    Free-agent WR Randall Cobb (Packers) signed a one-year, $5 million deal with the Dallas Cowboys Tuesday, March 19.

    Huddle Up: Cobb is aging and has dealt with more than his fair share of injuries throughout his career, but this is a good get for the Cowboys. Cobb immediately replaces Cole Beasley in the slot and gives Dak Prescott another trusted safety valve. His best years may be behind him, but drafting Cobb as a PPR WR3 won't be frowned at.

  • Donte Moncrief - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 3/19/19 9:09am ET

    Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Donte Moncrief has received a two-year, $9 million contract that includes $3.5 million guaranteed at signing. He'll make $5 million in cash in 2019.

    Huddle Up: Moncrief is headed to his third team in three years, and with Antonio Brown and his massive target share now out of the picture in Pittsburgh, Moncrief has WR3 upside if he adapts well to his new offense.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 3/19/19 8:41am ET

    Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert's one-year deal is worth up to $6.5 million. He received a $1.2 million signing bonus and a $4 million base salary with $2.5 million in incentives.

    Huddle Up: Eifert is oft-injured, but he could be worth the lottery ticket as a TE2.

  • Dan Bailey - PK - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 3/19/19 7:30am ET

    Free-agent PK Dan Bailey (Vikings) re-signed with the Minnesota Vikings Tuesday, March 19, on a one-year, $1 million deal. The deal could be worth $2 million with incentives.

    Huddle Up: Bailey kicks in a dome on a decent team, and he'll be an upper-middle option at kicker.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 3/18/19 12:18pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson was officially re-signed to his two-year contract Monday, March 13. It was originally reported that the deal is worth $8 million.

    Huddle Up: Peterson's return doesn't bode well for the fantasy ceiling of Derrius Guice, but Guice is still the running back to own from Washington. He has RB2 upside with less value in PPR leagues, while Peterson makes for a late-round handcuff.

  • Spencer Ware - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 3/18/19 7:41am ET

    Free-agent RB Spencer Ware (Chiefs) is visiting the Detroit Lions Monday, March 18.

    Huddle Up: Ware can still be an RB4 if he lands in the right timeshare to run between the tackles.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 3/18/19 7:35am ET

    Free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Raiders) is visiting the Seattle Seahawks Monday, March 18.

    Huddle Up: Nelson still has some PPR WR4 chops in fantasy, but he'll be an inconsistent contributor.

  • Randall Cobb - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 3/18/19 7:06am ET

    Free-agent WR Randall Cobb (Packers) is visiting the Dallas Cowboys Monday, March 18.

    Huddle Up: It's pretty clear what Cobb is at this point, and it's not the 12-touchdown breakout campaign he had in 2014. He has done very little since then and is oft-injured. However, he can still be a factor in fantasy as a WR5.

  • Cody Latimer - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 3/17/19 9:25pm ET

    New York Giants WR Cody Latimer announced on his official Instagram account on Sunday, March 17 that he is returning to the team on a one-year deal. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Latimer posted 11 grabs for 190 yards and a touchdwon last season before missing 10 games due to a hamstring injury. With Odell Beckham Jr. moving on to Cleveland, there is a chance Latimer could see a larger role depending upon the other draft picks and personnel moves the team chooses to make. Still, he has had chances to make a splash before and hasn't really answered the bell.

  • Mark Ingram - RB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 3/17/19 6:19pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Mark Ingram said he expects the running attack to be 'dangerous' and 'explosive' this season.

    Huddle Up: Ingram will slot in as the lead back in Baltimore's run-heavy attack. With defenses also worried about Lamar Jackson's running ability, Ingram could thrive between the tackles. He should be high-floor RB2.

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 3/17/19 11:55am ET

    Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Buccaneers) on Sunday, March 17, signed with the Miami Dolphins. Terms of the deal were not immediately available.

    Huddle Up: Fitzpatrick has landed with his eighth team in 15 years, and becomes the immediate favorite to open the 2019 season as the starter for the Dolphins, who likely also will draft a quarterback next month. Despite the gaudy stats he posted during several games in his FitzMagic run with the Bucs last season, he's nothing more than a QB2 at the very best.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 3/17/19 11:30am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson said Thursday, March 14, is 'excited' about re-signing with the team and blamed his 2014 offseason release on former Eagles coach Chip Kelly, not general manager Howie Roseman. 'One thing I can say about Howie Roseman, we always had a great relationship,' Jackson said. 'Even when I went on and played in Washington and played in Tampa Bay, anytime I was able to see him on the field pregame, he always came up and just gave me a hug. Once again, it was a bittersweet situation. We all know how I was released.'

    Huddle Up: Jackson, now 32, was limited to 12 games and caught only 41 passes -- the second-lowest mark of his 11-year career -- but did average a league-best 18.9 yards per reception. There is ample competition in Philly, though, for targets so don't count on Jackson being much than a big-play dependent WR4 once again.

  • Russell Wilson - QB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 3/17/19 9:45am ET

    Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson told late-night talk show host Jimmy Fallon on Friday, March 15, that there's 'great potential' for Wilson to eventually become the highest-paid player in NFL history. Meanwhile, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll has said this offseason that negotiations are 'ongoing' with Wilson, whose contract expires after the 2019 season.

    Huddle Up: Wilson threw for a career-high 35 TD passes last season on only 427 attempts -- his lowest single-season total since his second pro season in 2013. Meanwhile, Wilson rushed for 376 yards -- the second-lowest single-season total of his career -- while failing to rush for a TD for the first time in seven seasons. Expect some regression to the mean in both categories in 2019, and that still adds up to another QB1 campaign for Wilson.

  • Courtland Sutton - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 3/16/19 5:37pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton is one of the players QB Joe Flacco said he is 'excited' to work with in 2019.

    Huddle Up: A lot was expected out of Sutton after Emmanuel Sanders went down late last season, but he didn't see a jump in production. He will now have Joe Flacco throwing him the ball, which doesn't exactly move the needle either. Sutton enters 2019 in the WR3/WR4 range.

  • Jerick McKinnon - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 3/16/19 4:12pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman is expected to lead what could be a group of four active running backs on game days this season. Coleman and fellow RBs Jerick McKinnon, Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert would comprise the foursome.

    Huddle Up: It's an admirable group, but this could be a nuisance for fantasy purposes. Coleman is the running back to own in San Francisco, but McKinnon and company really limit his ceiling. Both Coleman and McKinnon still possess PPR RB2 upside.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 3/16/19 10:34am ET

    Free-agent TE Tyler Eifert (Bengals) agreed to terms on a new one-year contract with the Cincinnati Bengals Saturday, March 16, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Eifert has been limited to only 14 games over the last three seasons because of injuries but likely will be the starter if he is healthy for 2019. He is a risky option in fantasy leagues because of his injury history but could be a No. 2 tight end in leagues.

  • Chris Conley - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 3/16/19 7:55am ET

    The Jacksonville Jaguars signed free-agent WR Chris Conley (Chiefs) Saturday, March 16, according to a source. Terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

    Huddle Up: The 26-year-old Conley had 32 receptions for 334 yards and five touchdowns for Kansas City last season. He will be battling the likes of Keelan Cole, Dede Westbrook and Marqise Lee in Jacksonville for targets and should be viewed as a possible late-round flier in deeper fantasy football leagues.

  • Colin Kaepernick - QB - Free Agent
    Posted 3/15/19 3:38pm ET

    Free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick (49ers) is interested in becoming the Miami Dolphins' starting quarterback, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora. A source close to Kaepernick told La Canfora the quarterback is training hard and 'ready to play.'

    Huddle Up: There could be something to this after Miami was left without a starting passer following Friday's trade of Ryan Tannehill. Kaepernick's lawsuit vs. the NFL is behind him, and there could be mutual interest from the Dolphins. Miami's ownership has voiced support of social-justice issues in the past, so keep an eye on where this story is heading. He would be a weak QB2 in fantasy, should Miami make Kaepernick the starting quarterback.

  • Tyreek Hill - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 3/15/19 3:05pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill is the subject of a battery investigation involving a juvenile, USA TODAY Sports has confirmed. The alleged incident was reported Thursday, March 14, to Overland Park (Kan.) Police Department, but it is unclear when the alleged incident took place. The Chiefs issued a statement acknowledging the investigation, noting the team has been in communication with the associated authorities. Hill has not been charged with any crime. The Athletic reported the address listed on the police report is Hill's residence, and The Kansas City Star reported the alleged incident involved Hill's son.

    Huddle Up: Stay tuned. This could amount to nothing, or it may be a major derailment for his career. Hill was previously convicted of domestic violence in 2015, which could result in the league imposing a harsher penalty than usual, if this situation indeed proves to be true.
