Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Mike Evans - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 9/16/18 9:56pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans turned 12 targets into 10 catches for 83 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 versus the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: The only blemish on Evans' day was a lost fumble, but he's caught 17 of his 19 targets so far and scored in each of his first two games - exactly the type of production owners were hoping for from a receiver who was usually coming off the board in the late second or early third round in fantasy drafts. He will be a strong WR1 start yet again in Week 3 when Tampa Bay hosts a Pittsburgh Steelers defense that just surrendered six touchdown passes in Week 2.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 9/16/18 9:35pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson had four receptions for 128 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 versus the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: Amazingly, Jackson has caught all nine of his targets this season for 275 yards and three scores. He did the bulk of his damage on the first offensive play of the game, beating Jalen Mills on a play-action pass for a 75-yard TD. Jackson is obviously going to cool off at some point, but Week 3 presents a Pittsburgh Steelers defense that got scorched for six passing touchdowns in Week 2. Owners are encouraged to plug Jackson into their WR3 slot in hopes that he can keep this up.

  • Zach Ertz - TE - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/16/18 9:27pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz was targeted 13 times in Week 2 win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, finishing with 11 catches for 94 yards.

    Huddle Up: Ertz's efficiency with Nick Foles at quarterback hasn't been great (16 catches for 142 yards), but his PPR owners surely don't mind. With Carson Wentz expected back soon, he should find the end zone pretty soon and is a good bet to average more than 8.9 yards per reception. Even after Alshon Jeffery gets back (and especially once Wentz returns), Ertz is an every-week start at tight end in fantasy.

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 9/16/18 9:08pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 402 yards and four touchdowns to go along with one interception in a Week 2 win against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: Fitzpatrick is the first quarterback in league history to start out a season with back-to-back 400-yard, four-touchdown games. Facing a Pittsburgh Steelers defense that just gave up six touchdown passes to Patrick Mahomes in Week 2, Fitzpatrick is shaping up to be a strong fantasy and DFS option again. With Tampa Bay rolling right now, it's hard to believe he'll be handing the starting job back to Jameis Winston when he is eligible to return from his suspension in Week 4.

  • Evan Engram - TE - New York Giants
    Posted 9/16/18 8:41pm ET

    New York Giants TE Evan Engram (ankle) left the Week 2 game against the Dallas Cowboys briefly due to a right ankle injury, but he was able to return. He finished with seven grabs, 67 yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Most of Engram's production came in hurry-up late in the second half, but fantasy owners don't care how the yardage and scores come. However, it is nice when the production is spread out across the game. He'll look to keep up the good work in Week 3 on the road against the Houston Texans.

  • Robby Anderson - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 9/16/18 8:32pm ET

    New York Jets WR Robby Anderson posted three catches for 27 yards in Week 2 against the Miami Dolphins on five targets.

    Huddle Up: Anderson was the go-to fantasy option in the New York receiver corps last season, but he hasn't jelled terribly well with rookie Sam Darnold so far. Quincy Enunwa and Terrelle Pryor have easily outpaced Anderson in terms of production to this point. Based on his 2017 numbers, don't give up on him yet, but it might not be bad to reserve him Thursday and wait it out if you have more consistent options on your bench.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 9/16/18 8:30pm ET

    New York Jets WR Terrelle Pryor was good for four receptions and 84 yards on eight targets in Week 2 against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Pryor enjoyed solid production despite the fact Jermaine Kearse was back in the mix. Pryor and Quincy Enunwa have stepped up and outshined the 2017 starters, Robby Anderson and Kearse. Still, there are too many mouths to feed and the production might be erratic for Pryor. Keep treating him more as a low-end WR4 in most fantasy leagues, although he could step up in Week 3 against one of his former teams, the Cleveland Browns, on Thursday.

  • Quincy Enunwa - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 9/16/18 8:28pm ET

    New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa racked up seven receptions for 92 yards on 11 targets in Week 2 against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: For the second straight game, Enunwa led the way in targets and production among the Jets receivers. It's time to trust him as a WR3 or flex fantasy option in most leagues heading into Week 3 against the Browns on Thursday.

  • Bilal Powell - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 9/16/18 8:26pm ET

    New York Jets RB Bilal Powell rushed five times for just six yards in Week 2 against the Miami Dolphins, but he managed five grabs for 74 yards and a touchdown on six targets.

    Huddle Up: Powell's ability to catch the ball out of the backfield is his biggest value to fantasy owners. He is a RB4 in standard fantasy leagues, but a decent RB3 or flex option in PPR formats. The Jets travel to meet the Browns in Week 3 on Thursday.

  • Isaiah Crowell - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 9/16/18 8:23pm ET

    New York Jets RB Isaiah Crowell rushed 12 times for 35 yards in Week 2 against the Miami Dolphins while posting two grabs for just four yards on three targets.

    Huddle Up: Crowell went over 100 yards in the opener on Monday, but he was mostly shut down in this one. Keep the faith, though. He remains a solid RB2 in most fantasy formats, and he might play with a little extra oomph in Week 3 when he pays his former team, the Cleveland Browns, a visit on Thursday night.

  • Sam Darnold - QB - New York Jets
    Posted 9/16/18 8:18pm ET

    New York Jets QB Sam Darnold completed 25-of-41 passes for 334 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Week 2 game against the Miami Dolphins, becoming the youngest NFL quarterback to throw for more than 300 yards.

    Huddle Up: Darnold is 21 years, 103 days old, and he broke the previous record set by Jacky Lee, who was 21 years, 137 years old back on Nov. 25, 1960. So far, Darnold has been everything as advertised. He is a solid QB2 in most fantasy leagues, but a must-have in long-term keeper formats. The Jets take on the Browns on Thursday night in Cleveland.

  • Kenny Stills - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/16/18 8:00pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills posted just two catches for 17 yards on three targets in Week 2 against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: Stills has plenty of downfield ability, and he can be a fantasy difference maker like last week when he had 106 yards and two scores. Be patient, as his production will fluctuate, but it will be better than worse more often than not. The Dolphins host the Raiders in Week 3.

  • Danny Amendola - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/16/18 7:52pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Danny Amendola posted four receptions for 32 yards in the Week 2 game against the New York Jets on four targets.

    Huddle Up: Amendola is a solid short-yardage receiver capable of piling up the receptions, but neither his catch total or his yardage total was anything to jump up and down about in this one. Treat him as a WR4 in deeper PPR fantasy formats heading into Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders.

  • Albert Wilson - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/16/18 7:50pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Albert Wilson posted three receptions for a team-best 37 yards and a touchdown on five targets in Week 2 against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: Wilson led the mish-mash receivers unit of Miami, but that's not saying much. No one really had giant production, but they still scratched out the win. Don't expect any of the wideouts in Miami to put up giant numbers this season. The Dolphins host the Raiders in Week 3.

  • Frank Gore - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/16/18 7:47pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Frank Gore rushed nine times for 25 yards in Week 2 against the New York Jets and he added one catch for 19 yards.

    Huddle Up: The veteran Gore will spell Kenyan Drake when he needs a breather, but he is no longer the bellcow. He can be a decent low-end RB3 in deeper fantasy leagues, maybe more if Drake is ever forced out due to injury. The Dolphins host the Raiders in Week 3.

  • Kenyan Drake - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/16/18 7:42pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake rushed 11 times for 53 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the New York Jets and he added four receptions for 17 yards on his four targets.

    Huddle Up: Drake hasn't lit the world afire so far, but he hasn't been terrible, either. He has managed at least 48 rushing yards and at least three receptions in each game while scoring once. Treat him as a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 3 against the visiting Oakland Raiders.

  • Ryan Tannehill - QB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 9/16/18 7:29pm ET

    Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill completed 17-of-23 passes for 168 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 2 against the New York Jets. He also ran eight times for 44 yards.

    Huddle Up: Tannehill was sacked four times, but he didn't make any mistakes and led his team to a second win in as many weeks. He has been throwing low-risk, high-percentage passes, completing 37-of-51 (72.5 percent). The Dolphins host the Raiders in Week 3, but Tannehill is still more of a QB2 in most fantasy leagues.

  • Rishard Matthews - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/16/18 7:25pm ET

    Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews posted just two grabs for eight yards on four targets in Week 2 against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Matthews didn't jell well with backup Blaine Gabbert at all, as the veteran was under center for the injured Marcus Mariota (hamstring). Avoid Matthews and most Titans in the pass game until Mariota is back. The Titans face a tough road trip to face the stiff defense of the Jaguars in Week 3.

  • Jonnu Smith - TE - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/16/18 7:22pm ET

    Tennessee Titans TE Jonnu Smith did not have a reception or a target in Week 2 against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: It was expected Smith might see a larger role with Delanie Walker done for the season after a Week 1 injury, but it was Luke Stocker who saw more work instead. Smith has some long-term fantasy appeal, as he is a good athletic receiver, but he probably needs Marcus Mariota back to make him effective.

  • Taywan Taylor - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/16/18 7:20pm ET

    Tennessee Titans WR Taywan Taylor racked up three receptions for 32 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Week 2 against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Taylor did a good job jelling with backup Blaine Gabbert, and the duo probably knew each other well working with the second team during training camp and the preseason. Their familiarity showed. Despite the score, Taylor is still not worth scooping up in most fantasy leagues, especially with a tough trip to Jacksonville looming in Week 3.
