Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 10/16/17 6:46am ET

    Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) will have tests performed Monday, Oct. 16, to determine the next course of action. There's a chance he returns later in the season.

    Huddle Up: For all intents and purposes Rodgers is likely toast for the rest of the fantasy season. Brett Hundley figures to be a matchup play in the interim.

  • Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 10/16/17 5:56am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (foot) is expected to play in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: The Indianapolis Colts have been so-so against opposing running backs, and Fournette could be limited. See how the week shakes out, but he should at least be worth a flex play.

  • Devontae Booker - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/16/17 5:16am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker caught four of six passes for 78 yards in a Week 6 loss to the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Booker may be a flex option going forward, as he flew under the radar screen in Sunday's loss. Booker hasn't had a role in the running game, but performances like this will keep him in Trevor Siemian's eye for future games.

  • Demaryius Thomas - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/16/17 5:13am ET

    Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas had 10 catches for 133 yards in a Week 6 loss to the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Thomas only dropped four passes, but he did enough to convince fantasy owners of his WR1 status. He was a bright spot in an otherwise dismal outing for the Orange and Blue.

  • C.J. Anderson - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/16/17 5:08am ET

    Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson gained just 17 yards on nine carries in a Week 6 loss to the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: No one saw this game coming, and it was a huge disappointment for Anderson owners. Keep him in your lineup as an RB2, however, because the Los Angeles Chargers are up next and Anderson is bound to rebound.

  • Emmanuel Sanders - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/16/17 5:06am ET

    Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) will have an MRI Monday, Oct. 16, on his injured right ankle. X-rays were negative.

    Huddle Up: Outside of his two-TD game in Week 2, Sanders has been pretty meh with a 25-266-2 line on the season. With Trevor Siemian (shoulder) also banged up, Sanders doesn't look like a good WR3 play against the Los Angeles Chargers next week.

  • Trevor Siemian - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/16/17 5:05am ET

    Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (shoulder) will likely have an MRI on his left shoulder Monday, Oct. 16. The team fears it's a similar AC joint sprain that he suffered last season.

    Huddle Up: Siemian is someone to pass on in Week 7 as the Los Angeles Chargers have been pretty good against the pass. The injury will likely be one he can play through if he can tolerate the pain.

  • Evan Engram - TE - New York Giants
    Posted 10/16/17 5:05am ET

    New York Giants TE Evan Engram caught five of his seven targeted passes for 82 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: Conventional wisdom had Engram struggling in this game, but instead he broke through for a strong performance. Considering the plight of the Giants receiving corps, Engram may be a decent low-end TE1 or high-end TE2, depending on the matchups.

  • Jamaal Charles - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/16/17 5:00am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles rushed five times for 19 yards in a Week 6 loss to the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: This may have been the best reason to keep Charles seated until the Broncos figure out the rushing attack. Granted, C.J. Anderson struggled as well, but as long as the RB committee continues Charles will get the lower end of the deal.

  • Orleans Darkwa - RB - New York Giants
    Posted 10/16/17 4:55am ET

    New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa gained 117 yards on 21 carries in Week 6 against the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: Where did this come from? That's the question many fantasy owners probably ask Monday morning. It's tempting to pick up Darkwa, considering the Broncos only gave up over 50 yards rushing a game prior to this. However, one performance does not make a player. See if Darkwa can do this more often before you take a flyer.

  • Trevor Siemian - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/16/17 4:48am ET

    Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian threw for 376 yards and one touchdown but was picked off twice in Week 6 against the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Now the bad news. Siemian missed on 21 of his 50 passes and the Giants defense confounded him all night. Siemian missed open targets and threw into coverage many times. Week 7 brings the Los Angeles Chargers, and he could struggle against the Chargers if that defense gels.

  • Amari Cooper - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 10/16/17 4:39am ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper caught five of six passes for 28 yards in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

    Huddle Up: Cooper only dropped one of his passes, which is an improvement from previous yards. Still, he is a risk to play in Week 7 against the Kansas City Chiefs, what with the short week and the Chiefs coming off the loss to Pittsburgh.

  • Seth Roberts - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 10/16/17 4:35am ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Seth Roberts caught all three of his passes for 35 yards in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

    Huddle Up: With Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper in the lineup, it has been a struggle sometimes for other receivers to latch on. Roberts has been an inviting alternate target for Derek Carr. He's not worth starting on a regular basis except in deeper formats, but Roberts could go up the chart if either lead wideout is hurt.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 10/16/17 4:31am ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree caught six of his 10 targeted passes for 52 yards and scored a touchdown in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

    Huddle Up: Crabtree should be in your lineup for Week 7 against the Kansas City Chiefs, but the Chiefs are coming off a stinging loss to Pittsburgh and it is a short week. Still, if any receiver will find catches and yards against a tough team, Crabtree is the one.

  • Cordarrelle Patterson - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 10/16/17 4:26am ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson had 55 yards rushing in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Chargers, but he also had one catch for five yards.

    Huddle Up: Before you get excited, a word of caution. Patterson had a 47-yard run, so a good chunk of those yards came on one play. The team wants to get Patterson involved, but the results aren't perfect. Stay away until the Raiders can find a better role.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 10/16/17 4:19am ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch carried 13 times for 63 yards in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Chargers, but he gained no yards receiving and was targeted just twice.

    Huddle Up: Lynch's rushing yards were slightly better, but not by much, even against a weaker LA defense. He still ranks as an RB2 heading into next week, but that could be a struggle considering it's the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 7.

  • Derek Carr - QB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 10/16/17 4:13am ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 21 of his 30 pass attempts for 171 yards and one touchdown, but he was also picked off twice in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

    Huddle Up: It won't get much better for Carr, at least not yet. Carr has a Week 7 clash against the Kansas City Chiefs and it is a short week because of Thursday Night Football. Add to that Carr is returning from back spasms, and you might want to stay away until Carr gets his legs back.
