Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Bilal Powell - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 12/8/17 3:40pm ET

    New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (hamstring) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 8, and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 14 game against the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: Powell is ready to face the Broncos. While Denver has a pretty sturdy rush defense, he should be treated as a RB3 or flex fantasy option across most formats.

  • Jermaine Kearse - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 12/8/17 3:39pm ET

    New York Jets WR Jermaine Kearse (shoulder) practiced in full for a third straight day Friday, Dec. 8, and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 14 game with the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: Kearse is a decent low-end WR3 or flex play in most fantasy leagues, as he has emerged as a decent weapon for Josh McCown. He has 16 catches for 262 yards and a touchdown over the past two games.

  • Matt Forte - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 12/8/17 3:38pm ET

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) did not practice Friday, Dec. 8, and he is listed as questionable for the Week 14 game against the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: Forte is a risky play for the weekend, especially with Bilal Powell healthy and ready to go. Use the veteran Forte as a RB3 or flex fantasy play in PPR leagues, and a low-end RB3 in standard play, if he is active.

  • Robby Anderson - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 12/8/17 3:38pm ET

    New York Jets WR Robby Anderson (hamstring) practiced fully Friday, Dec. 8, and he has been removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 14 game against the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: Anderson has emerged as a must-start fantasy option this season, even when facing a solid Broncos pass defense. Denver has allowed just 203.6 yards per game through the air, fourth in the NFL, but they have also yielded 26 passing touchdowns which is most in the NFL.

  • Rishard Matthews - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 12/8/17 3:28pm ET

    Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 8, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Matthews should be back in the lineup after missing the last two because of his injury. He has had a solid role in the Titans passing game this season and has two touchdowns in his last three games. He can be a No. 3 fantasy receiver in most leagues.

  • Jameis Winston - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 12/8/17 3:17pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (ankle) went through a full practice Friday, Dec. 8 and he is off the injury report for Week 14 against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Winston has a pretty solid matchup against the league's 27th-ranked pass defense, as the Lions allow 245.3 yards per game with 16 touchdowns through 12 outings. They have also yielded 36 pass plays of 20 or more yards.

  • Doug Martin - RB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 12/8/17 3:16pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) was able to practice fully on Friday, Dec. 8, and he is off the injury report for Week 14 against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Martin is expected to start in Week 14, and that's bad news for the fantasy outlook of Peyton Barber. Martin should be treated as a RB3 or flex fantasy option against the Lions.

  • Zach Ertz - TE - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 12/8/17 3:16pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (concussion) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 8, and is listed as questionable for Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Ertz needs to be cleared by the doctors before he is allowed to play, so owners will need to monitor the situation over the next few days. He is a No. 1 fantasy tight end when he is healthy, but owners will need a backup plan ready if Ertz is ruled out.

  • Robert Woods - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 12/8/17 3:04pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 8, and is listed as questionable for Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Woods will be active against the Philadelphia Eagles. He has been a solid part of the Rams passing game when he is healthy, but owners may want to look for other options because of his uncertain status.

  • Will Fuller - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/8/17 2:49pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (ribs) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 8, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Fuller likely will return to the lineup after missing the last three games because of his injured ribs. He does not have great chemistry with Tom Savage but could be a flex option in deeper leagues because of his big-play ability.

  • Braxton Miller - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/8/17 2:44pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 8, and has been ruled out for Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Chris Thompson could receive a few more targets with Miller out of the lineup but is not a strong fantasy option. DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller are the only Texans receivers that have fantasy value this week.

  • Matthew Stafford - QB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 12/8/17 2:42pm ET

    Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) was listed as a limited participant in practice Friday, Dec. 8, and he is considered questionable for Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Stafford has healed very quickly from the hand injury he suffered late in the Week 13 game in Baltimore. If he starts he is a very nice fantasy option against the league's 31st-ranked pass defense. Tampa has allowed 267.3 yards per game, most in the NFC, and 19 touchdowns with 10 or more pass plays of 40 yards allowed.

  • Ameer Abdullah - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 12/8/17 2:41pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) worked on a limited basis in practice Friday, Dec. 8, and he is listed as questionable for Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Abdullah is a risky fantasy play at this point. If he is inactive it would be Theo Riddick, Dwayne Washington and Zach Zenner filling the void. When healthy Abdullah is more of a low-end RB3 or flex play.

  • Dion Lewis - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/8/17 2:37pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (illness) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 8.

    Huddle Up: Lewis likely will be able to play in Week 14 if he can recover from his illness. He has rushed for at least 92 yards in each of the last two games and should continue a solid amount of carries during games. He can be a No. 2 running back or a flex option in leagues.

  • Chris Hogan - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/8/17 2:35pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 8.

    Huddle Up: Hogan has a good chance to return to the lineup after a few games off as long as he does not suffer a setback. He could see more targets than usual if he plays because of Rob Gronkowski's suspension. He could be at least a flex option for owners if he is active.

  • Tom Brady - QB - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/8/17 2:31pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (Achilles) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 8.

    Huddle Up: Brady appears to be on track to play this week against the Miami Dolphins and should be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in all leagues.

  • Sterling Shepard - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 12/8/17 2:26pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) practiced on a limited basis on Friday, Dec. 8, and he is listed as questionable for Week 14 against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Shepard appears to be trending in the right direction and he has Eli Manning back under center for the G-Men, helping his fantasy appeal. Consider him a WR3 or flex fantasy option if he is active against the 21st-ranked pass defense in the NFL.

  • Orleans Darkwa - RB - New York Giants
    Posted 12/8/17 2:25pm ET

    New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa (illness) was listed as a limited participant in practice Friday, Dec. 8, and he is considered questionable for Week 14 against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Darkwa is a little under the weather, while Wayne Gallman (hip) was removed from the injury report and Paul Perkins is also available. There is a new regime with the G-Men, too, so perhaps they'll go another way. Darkwa's questionable status, the health of the others and the new coaching staff make Darkwa a risky fantasy proposition on Sunday.

  • Damien Williams - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 12/8/17 2:05pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams (shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 8.

    Huddle Up: Williams probably will miss another game and can be avoided in all fantasy leagues. Kenyan Drake should receive most of the work at running back and could be a flex option in some deeper leagues.

  • Cordarrelle Patterson - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 12/8/17 1:56pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) took part in practice on a limited basis Friday, Dec. 8, and he is listed as questionable for the Week 14 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Patterson had a golden opportunity last week with Michael Crabtree suspended and Amari Cooper injured, and he showed he can still perform at a high level. However, Crabtree is due back on Sunday, and Cooper might be healthy enough to play, too. So Patterson's role will shrink, making him a risky fantasy play.
