Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Keenan Allen - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/16/18 2:30pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen caught six passes for 67 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Allen was targeted eight times during the game and will continue to be the main option in the passing game for the Chargers. He should be a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver next week against the Los Angeles Rams.

  • Austin Ekeler - RB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/16/18 2:26pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler rushed for 77 yards on 11 carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 2. He also caught three passes for 21 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Ekeler is not a starter but still receives plenty of work in the offense. He should receive a similar workload next week and can be a flex option in numerous leagues.

  • C.J. Anderson - RB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/16/18 2:26pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB C.J. Anderson rushed three times for 31 yards in the Week 2 game against the Atlanta Falcons and he did not have a catch on two targets.

    Huddle Up: Anderson's touches were limited, as the Panthers got away from the run in the second half and his counterpart Christian McCaffrey was used a lot to catch the ball out of the backfield. Unless something happens to McCaffrey to force him to the sidelines, Anderson's fantasy appeal is rather limited. The Panthers host the Bengals in Week 3.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/16/18 2:20pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon rushed for 28 yards and one touchdown on nine carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 2. He also caught six passes for 38 yards and two touchdowns during the game.

    Huddle Up: Gordon scored all three of his touchdowns in the first half of the game and may have been held back a bit during the second half with the game in hand. He will continue to receive plenty of touches and can be a No. 1 fantasy running back next week.

  • Christian McCaffrey - RB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/16/18 2:19pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed eight times for just 37 yards in Week 2 against the Atlanta Falcons, but he was good for 14 catches and 102 yards on 15 targets in the loss.

    Huddle Up: McCaffrey averaged just 7.3 yards per catch, working in the flat and on short routes to help Cam Newton as the safety value with Greg Olsen (foot) out of the game and the wide receiver corps a mish-mash unit. CMC is likely to see his fair share of receptions with Olsen on the shelf to make him a must-start in PPR formats. The Panthers host the Bengals in Week 3.

  • Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 9/16/18 2:15pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 32-of-45 passes for 335 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the Week 2 road loss against the Atlanta Falcons, and he also led the team with 42 rushing yards on five attempts.

    Huddle Up: Newton certainly did his best to will his team to a road win, but it's going to be tough for the quarterback if he doesn't get any help on the ground. The Panthers will look to get back on track in Week 3 against the Bengals.

  • Josh Doctson - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/16/18 2:04pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson recorded four receptions for 37 yards on seven targets in the Week 2 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Doctson was third on the team in targets, and he seems to be getting on the same page with new QB Alex Smith. More importantly, he has made it through two games without any nicks, as injuries have held him back in the past. If he can stay healthy he has the chance to be a decent WR4 with a little upside in most fantasy leagues. The Redskins host the Packers in Week 3.

  • Philip Rivers - QB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/16/18 2:04pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers went 23-for-27 for 256 yards and three touchdowns against the Buffalo Bills in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Rivers has been an underrated fantasy quarterback for the last few years but is off to a solid start in 2018. He will be facing a tough Los Angeles Rams defense next week but could still be a low-end No. 1 quarterback.

  • Jordan Reed - TE - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/16/18 2:02pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed posted six receptions for 55 yards on eight targets in Week 2 against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: It wasn't all great for Reed, as he lost a fumble. The eight targets were nice, however, as he has developed a nice rapport with Alex Smith during the early going. As long as he can stay healthy, which has been the biggest obstacle during his career, he can be a decent low-end TE1 in most fantasy leagues. The Redskins host the Packers in Week 3.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 9/16/18 2:00pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. caught four passes for 55 yards against the Cleveland Browns in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Ginn was not able to reach the end zone this week but did post decent numbers against the Browns. He could be a flex option in some leagues next week against the Atlanta Falcons but is not a must-start player.

  • Paul Richardson - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/16/18 1:59pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder) racked up four catches for 63 yards on six receptions in the Week 2 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Richardson was battling a shoulder injury this week, but he didn't seem to show any ill effects of the injury wit ha solid stat line. He is a decent WR4 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more leagues heading into Week 3 against Green Bay.

  • Chris Thompson - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/16/18 1:57pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson hauled in 13 receptions for 92 yards on 14 targets in the Week 2 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Thompson was extremely busy on the short routes, as the Redskins passed frequently in the second half trying to get back into the game. He has 19 receptions already through the first two outings, making him a strong RB2 in all PPR formats heading into Week 3 against the Packers.

  • Michael Thomas - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 9/16/18 1:54pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas caught 12 passes for 89 yards and two touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Thomas has recorded 28 catches in the first two weeks and should continue to receive plenty of targets moving forward. He should be a No. 1 wide receiver in all leagues next week against the Atlanta Falcons.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/16/18 1:53pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson rushed 11 times for just 20 yards in Week 2 against the Indianapolis Colts and he added three receptions for 30 yards on his three targets.

    Huddle Up: Peterson took a step back after his nice opening game win in Arizona, managing just 1.8 yards per carry in this one. He remains a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 3 against the Packers, but he might need to be downgraded if he posts another stinker like this.

  • Jamison Crowder - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/16/18 1:50pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder had just two receptions for eight yards on four targets in Week 2 against the Indianapolis Colts, and he had two runs for a team-high 29 rushing yards.

    Huddle Up: It won't be often Crowder leads the team in rushing, and that's not what his fantasy owners want to see. He was expected to see a bump in targets with Alex Smith under center, but that hasn't come into fruition yet. Crowder is a risky fantasy play, even in PPR formats, until he jells better with his new QB. The Redskins host the Packers in Week 3.

  • Alvin Kamara - RB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 9/16/18 1:49pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed for 46 yards on 13 carries against the Cleveland Browns in Week 2. He also caught six passes for 53 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Kamara has lost some touches to Mike Gillislee but is still a big part of the team's offense. He should be considered a No. 1 or No. 2 fantasy running back in all leagues next week.

  • Alex Smith - QB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/16/18 1:46pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith completed 33-of-46 passes for 292 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 2 loss against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Smith was sacked three times and he fumbled once, although the team was able to get that one back. The Colts pressured him, and the only reason he had a decent yardage total was because of short to intermediate low-risk pass routes late in the game trying to get his team back into it. He remains nothing more than a QB2 heading into Week 3 against the Packers.

  • Jack Doyle - TE - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 9/16/18 1:36pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle posted two receptions for 20 yards on five targets in Week 2 against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Doyle's five targets were second-highest on the team, but he didn't do much with them. The presence of Eric Ebron, who scored for the second straight week, is also not good for Doyle's fantasy appeal. He remains more of a low-end TE2 in deeper leagues heading into Week 3 at Philadelphia.

  • Drew Brees - QB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 9/16/18 1:36pm ET

    New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees went 28-for-35 for 243 yards and two touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Brees continues to be one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL despite his age. He should be considered a No. 1 fantasy quarterback next week against the Atlanta Falcons.

  • David Njoku - TE - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 9/16/18 1:34pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku caught four passes for 20 yards against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Njoku may receive some more targets during game moving forward but should only be a No. 2 tight end for owners at this point.
