Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Patrick Mahomes - QB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 9/16/18 3:16pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 23-of-28 passes for 326 yards, six touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 2 win against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He has 10 TDs through two games, most in NFL history to start a season.

    Huddle Up: Mahomes is making Kansas City brass look wise for parting with Alex Smith to open up the starting job for the former Texas Tech gunslinger. He'll look to keep it rolling heading into Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers.

  • Charles Clay - TE - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/16/18 3:10pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay caught two passes for 29 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Clay could become a security blanket for Josh Allen in the weeks to come but is not a strong fantasy option at this point. He should be considered a No. 2 fantasy tight end at this point.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/16/18 3:09pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin caught two passes for 19 yards and one touchdown against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin entered this season as the team's top receiver but only has 29 yards in two games. Owners in all leagues can keep Benjamin on the bench until he is more productive.

  • Austin Hooper - TE - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/16/18 3:07pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper posted five receptions for 59 yards and a touchdown on five targets in the Week 2 win against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Hooper was limited during the week by a knee ailment, but he didn't show any ill effects of the injury in this one. He has eight grabs for 83 yards on nine targets through two games to make him a decent low-end TE1 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. The Falcons host the Saints in Week 3.

  • Ito Smith - RB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/16/18 3:04pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Ito Smith rushed nine times for 46 yards in Week 2 against the Carolina Panthers and he added an eight-yard reception.

    Huddle Up: Smith was seeing an increased workload with Devonta Freeman (knee) sidelined for multiple games. The former Southern Miss standout was the primary backup to Tevin Coleman, who totaled 20 touches. Smith is only worth a look in the very deepest of fantasy leagues while Freeman is on the shelf unless something happens to Coleman, too.

  • Mohamed Sanu - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/16/18 3:02pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu posted two grabs for just 19 yards on two targets in Week 2 against the Carolina Panthers and he ran once for minus-4 yards.

    Huddle Up: Sanu and his fantasy owners won't like the fact he totaled just three touches in the victory, and it appears Calvin Ridley has surpassed him on the depth chart. It will be a battle to watch going forward. Sanu should be treated as a WR5 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 3 against the Saints.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/16/18 2:59pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones posted five receptions for 64 yards and a team-high nine targets in Week 2 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Jones tied for the team high in receiving yardage with Calvin Ridley, but for the second time in two games he failed to find the end zone. Fantasy owners do not like the lack of touchdowns early on, and it was a problem in 2017, too. However, he remains an obvious WR1 in most fantasy leagues. The production will come, perhaps starting as soon as Week 3 against the Saints.

  • Zay Jones - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/16/18 2:59pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones caught two passes for 63 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Jones recorded 57 yards in one of the catches but does not appear to be a big part of the passing game. Owners in all leagues can avoid Jones until be posts better numbers.

  • Calvin Ridley - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/16/18 2:56pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley posted four receptions for a team-best 64 yards and a touchdown in the Week 2 win against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Ridley has fit in very nicely since arriving in Atlanta, and he pushed aside Mohamed Sanu in this one to seize the No. 2 job alongside Julio Jones. Target Ridley as a WR4 in most fantasy leagues in the short term. In the long term, Ridley is an outstanding keeper league option. The Falcons host the Saints in Week 3.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/16/18 2:53pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed 16 times for 107 yards in the Week 2 win against the Carolina Panthers while adding four receptions for 18 yards.

    Huddle Up: Coleman was getting a chance to handle the full workload with Devonta Freeman (knee) on the shelf. As long as Freeman is sidelined it appears Coleman has RB2 fantasy value in all leagues. The Falcons will host the Saints in Week 3.

  • Chris Ivory - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/16/18 2:50pm ET

    Buffalo Bills RB Chris Ivory rushed for seven yards and one touchdown on two carries against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 2. He also caught one pass for 30 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Ivory could receive a start next week if LeSean McCoy is ruled out. He could be a possible flex option next week if he starts but would not be a strong option.

  • Matt Ryan - QB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 9/16/18 2:49pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 23-of-28 passes for 272 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Week 2 win against Carolina Panthers while posting two rushing scores, posting his 100th career NFL win.

    Huddle Up: It was the first time Ryan has had two rushing touchdowns in the same game since he was in college. He'll look to stay hot in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints in a potential shootout. He remains a solid low-end QB1 in most fantasy leagues.

  • LeSean McCoy - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/16/18 2:48pm ET

    Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (ribs) rushed for 39 yards on nine carries against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 2. He also caught four passes for 29 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: McCoy was not able to finish the game because of injured ribs, so owners will need to monitor the situation during the week. The Bills will be facing a tough Minnesota Vikings defense in Week 3, but McCoy could still be a No. 2 fantasy running back if he plays.

  • Torrey Smith - WR - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/16/18 2:41pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Torrey Smith hauled in three receptions for 33 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in the Week 2 loss against the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: Smith recorded his first touchdown in a Carolina uniform and he might not be done. With Greg Olsen (foot) on the mend, and really only Devin Funchess as a proven NFL receiver, Smith could see some additional targets going forward. The Panthers host the Bengals in Week 3.

  • Josh Allen - QB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 9/16/18 2:39pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen went 18-for-33 for 245 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Allen should keep the starting job throughout the season and probably will struggle at times. He will have a very tough matchup next week and should be avoided in all leagues.

  • D.J. Moore - WR - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/16/18 2:37pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore had just one grab in Week 2 against the Atlanta Falcons, but that catch was a 51-yard touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Moore had a Hail Mary pass go through his hands on the final play of the game and that would have tied things up. If he gains the trust of Cam Newton further, garnering a few more targets, he could have some fantasy appeal outside of the deepest leagues. It's a situation worth watching. The Panthers host the Bengals in Week 3.

  • Mike Williams - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/16/18 2:36pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams caught two passes for 27 yards and one touchdown against the Buffalo Bills in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Williams has caught seven of his eight targets this season and could be in line for a bigger role as the season goes on. He probably can be avoided in most leagues next week because of the tough matchup.

  • Tyrell Williams - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/16/18 2:33pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Tyrell Williams caught three passes for 48 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Williams posted better numbers than he did last season and caught all three of his targets. He will be facing a tough Los Angeles Rams defense next week and may not be a great fantasy option.

  • Jarius Wright - WR - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/16/18 2:33pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Jarius Wright posted five receptions for 62 yards and a touchdown in the Week 2 loss against the Atlanta Falcons. He was targeted seven times.

    Huddle Up: Wright had the eye of Cam Newton, who was searching for a playmaker with Greg Olsen (foot) on the sidelines. The former Vikings receiver could be a decent WR5 in deeper fantasy leagues with a little upside if Newton continues to look his way. The Panthers host the Bengals in Week 3.

  • Devin Funchess - WR - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/16/18 2:30pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess posted seven receptions for 77 yards on nine targets in the Week 2 game against the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: Funchess is it for the Panthers, as far as downfield threats in Charlotte. With Greg Olsen (foot) on the shelf again, Funchess, Christian McCaffrey and Jarius Wright appear to be the top targets in the pass game for Cam Newton right now. Target Funch as a WR4 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 3 against the Bengals, with slightly more value in PPR formats.
