Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • John Brown - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 12/7/17 1:51pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (toe) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Brown appears to be making some progress and may have a chance to play in Week 14, so owners should check on his status later in the week. He has some value when he is healthy but will he a risky option this week.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 12/7/17 1:50pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Peterson may need to practice Friday, Dec. 8, if he wants a chance to play in Week 14. Owners should keep an eye on the situation but will need other options ready in case Peterson is ruled out again.

  • Doug Martin - RB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 12/7/17 1:45pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) has cleared the concussion protocol and fully practiced Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Tampa Bay's backfield is a conundrum with Martin and Peyton Barber both vying for the starting job. Barber deserves to start again after a great fill-in job last week, plus Martin hasn't exactly done anything to write home about. The Muscle Hamster can't be started as more than a flex, and that might even be risky.

  • Jameis Winston - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 12/7/17 1:41pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (ankle) was full go in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Winston had a decent outing in his return last week but he has yet to fulfill or exceed expectations from the offseason. If you're thin on options then Winston can be started, but he could cause a playoff sweat.

  • Antonio Brown - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 12/7/17 1:25pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (toe) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Brown was able to play last week despite the injury, so he probably will be in uniform again this week against the Baltimore Ravens. He is a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues when he plays.

  • Ameer Abdullah - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 12/7/17 1:22pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Abdullah's situation is one to shy away from even in a great matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Abdullah is not guaranteed to play at this point, and if he does he could be limited. Theo Riddick makes for a nice PPR flex either way.

  • Matthew Stafford - QB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 12/7/17 1:18pm ET

    Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Stafford really doesn't want to miss this matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The scallywags are among the worst fantasy defenses in the league this year and the Lions are usually forced to pass early and often in order to stay in games. If Stafford is active then he should be started.

  • Charles Clay - TE - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/7/17 1:07pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Clay has dealt with the injury for most of the season but has been able to play. He should have a decent role in the passing game not matter the starting quarterback but could be kept on the bench if owners have a better option available.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/7/17 1:02pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin appears to have a chance to play in Week 14, so owners will need to monitor his progress. He is a risky option since he has not had a lot of work in the offense since joining the Bills and can be benched if owners have better options.

  • LeSean McCoy - RB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 12/7/17 12:48pm ET

    Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: McCoy should receive his normal workload and will have a favorable matchup in Week 14. He is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

  • Greg Olsen - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 12/7/17 12:43pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Olsen is on track to play this week and is not expected to see limited snaps. He is one of the best tight ends in the NFL and should be a starter in all fantasy leagues despite the matchup.

  • Devin Funchess - WR - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 12/7/17 12:33pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Funchess has been playing well recently with at least 85 yards in three of the last four games. He has been targeted at least six times in all but one game this season and should continue to be the No. 1 receiver. He likely will be covered by Minnesota Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes for most of the game, which pushes him down to a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in most leagues.

  • Robby Anderson - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 12/7/17 12:30pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New York Jets WR Robby Anderson (hamstring) should be OK to play this week despite aggravating a hamstring injury in practice Thursday, Dec. 7, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Crisis averted. Anderson can remain in starting lineups, even against Aqib Talib, assuming he doesn't have any setbacks between now and Sunday.

  • Christian McCaffrey - RB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 12/7/17 12:29pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: McCaffrey has been involved in the running and passing game this season and has been receiving at least 10 touches each game. He can be a flex option in most leagues even though he is facing a tough Minnesota Vikings defense.

  • Jonathan Stewart - RB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 12/7/17 12:24pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (foot) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Stewart continues to receive a solid amount of carries during games and has a touchdown in each of his last two games. He has been held to under 50 yards in six of his last seven games and probably can be avoided in most leagues because of the tough matchup.

  • Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 12/7/17 12:17pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Newton should be able to play against the Minnesota Vikings despite being limited during practice. He has been held to under 200 yards passing in four of his last five games but does have six passing touchdowns in the last three games. Owners may consider benching Newton this week if they have better options because of his tough matchup.

  • Rishard Matthews - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 12/7/17 12:07pm ET

    Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Matthews appears to be on track to play this week but may be covered by Patrick Peterson during the game. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in leagues despite the matchup.

  • Amari Cooper - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 12/7/17 12:06pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Cooper may be out of the concussion protocol, but he is still dealing with a nagging ankle injury. He's heading for the wrong side of questionable, which would lead the way for Michael Crabtree to have a big game in a tasty matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs. Cooper's practice status tomorrow will be key.

  • Delanie Walker - TE - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 12/7/17 12:06pm ET

    Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Walker could be a game-time decision against the Arizona Cardinals, so owners should monitor the situation. He can be a No. 1 fantasy tight end if he plays, but owners will need other options available in case Walker misses the game.

  • Sterling Shepard - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 12/7/17 11:51am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) was upgraded to limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: As long as Shepard doesn't aggravate his hamstring ailment he should be OK to play this weekend. He's an intriguing starter with Eli Manning returning and in a great matchup against the rival Dallas Cowboys. Shepard is comfortably in WR2 territory as the Giants' No. 1 receiver.
