Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Jimmy Garoppolo - QB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 5/22/19 10:47am ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) won't be fully cleared for full-team drills until training camp, in part, because the team doesn't want to risk having defenders around his legs. Garoppolo has done work in 7-on-7 drills.

    Huddle Up: Jimmy G will be a midrange option at the position in fantasy with maybe a little upside.

  • Greg Olsen - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 5/22/19 9:48am ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) said he has been fully cleared Wednesday, May 22.

    Huddle Up: Olsen is declining, but the position in fantasy is still in flux after the top couple of options. He'll be amongst a glut of midrange TE1 options.

  • Antonio Brown - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 5/21/19 4:30pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Antonio Brown was not present during practice Tuesday, May 21.

    Huddle Up: Brown was with the team earlier in the preseason and should return for at least the mandatory minicamp. He will be working in a new offense and with a new quarterback but should still be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • T.Y. Hilton - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 5/21/19 4:06pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) fully participated in practice Tuesday, May 21.

    Huddle Up: Hilton is expected to be limited this offseason but should be a full participant during training camp. He has been one of the better receivers in the NFL over the last several seasons and could be a low-end No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Frank Gore - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 5/21/19 3:20pm ET

    Buffalo Bills RB Frank Gore (foot, ankle) is not participating in practices because he is coming off foot and ankle injuries.

    Huddle Up: Gore is part of a crowded backfield in Buffalo, so his role is uncertain at this point. He has posted solid numbers over the last few seasons and could be a late-round pick in standard leagues if he receives a solid role in the running game.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 5/21/19 10:53am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger said Tuesday, May 21, he plans to be around more at OTAs this year in part to all the team's new faces.

    Huddle Up: Remember the formidable offensive "B's" the Steelers featured only a few years ago? Antonio Brown, Le'Veon Bell and Martvis Bryant are now gone, leaving Big Ben with a new cast. He remains, though, a borderline QB1/high-end QB2.

  • Cameron Brate - TE - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 5/21/19 9:47am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate (hip) said Tuesday, May 21, he's rehabbing on schedule as he recovers from hip surgery earlier this offseason and is on course to be ready for training camp in late July.

    Huddle Up: Brate is coming off three-year lows in targets (49), receptions (30) and yards (289) but did have six scoring receptions last season. It's a new offense, though, and fellow TE O.J. Howard is expected back after an ankle injury, so don't value Brate as anything more than a low-end TE2 in fantasy drafts.

  • Cole Beasley - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 5/21/19 9:13am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley (core) underwent core-muscle surgery a few weeks ago, head coach Sean McDermott said Tuesday, May 21, and is being held out of OTAs.

    Huddle Up: Beasley should recover in time for training camp and man the slot position for the Bills, but it remains a low-volume passing offense, and Beasley should go undrafted in all but the deepest of leagues.

  • Carson Wentz - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 5/21/19 7:55am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) has no limitations in organized team activities, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

    Huddle Up: Wentz a year-and-a-half removed from a torn ACL that wrecked an MVP season. This will be a prove-it year to show that peak wasn't smoke and mirrors. He's a high-end option at the position with top-two upside and a mediocre floor.

  • Julian Edelman - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 5/21/19 7:54am ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman received a two-year extension Tuesday, May 21. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

    Huddle Up: The Super Bowl MVP turns 33 Wednesday and receives a nice birthday gift. He had a 74-850-6 season in 12 games last season. In PPR leagues he is a very solid WR2 with some injury risk. His tendency to catch an abundance of short passes shines in PPR.

  • Cooper Kupp - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 5/20/19 7:33pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) said he is happy with the progress he is making in his rehab but does not want to put a timetable on his return. Head coach Sean McVay said the goal is for Kupp to be ready for Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Kupp probably will not be on a practice field until training camp, so fantasy players should monitor his situation over the next few months. He is one of the better receivers in the NFL when he is healthy and can be a No. 2 fantasy receiver in 2019.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 5/20/19 7:03pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson and WR Larry Fitzgerald were not present during practice Monday, May 20.

    Huddle Up: Both Johnson and Fitzgerald could participate in practice later this offseason and should be on the field for mandatory minicamp. Johnson will be a No. 1 running back in fantasy leagues this upcoming season, while Fitzgerald could be a No. 3 receiver.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 5/20/19 6:41pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones was not present for the start of organized team activities Monday, May 20.

    Huddle Up: Jones is talking with the team about a contract extension and may not participate until the mandatory minicamp. Jones continues to be one of the top receivers in the NFL and should be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Case Keenum - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 5/20/19 5:36pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Case Keenum received the first snap during team drills Monday, May 20.

    Huddle Up: Keenum will compete with Dwayne Haskins and Colt McCoy for the starting quarterback job during training camp. Fantasy players probably should avoid the Redskins quarterback situation in drafts, but Haskins likely will have some value in keeper leagues.

  • Amari Cooper - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 5/20/19 4:37pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper is at a stalemate in contract extension talks with the Cowboys, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Cooper is entering the final year of his contract, so the team is looking to sign him to a long-term extension this offseason. He played well after joining the Cowboys and should receive plenty of targets this upcoming season. He can be a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Kyle Rudolph - TE - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 5/20/19 3:10pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph said he plans to participate in practice Tuesday, May 21, even though his future with the team is uncertain.

    Huddle Up: Rudolph has been part of trade rumors this offseason, so it is not known which team he will play for in 2019. He can be considered a No. 2 fantasy tight end no matter where he plays.

  • A.J. Green - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 5/20/19 11:46am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) will not participate during organized team activities, but there is a chance he will take part in minicamp, according to ESPN's Katherine Terrell, who adds Green 'definitely' will be ready for training camp.

    Huddle Up: Green is reportedly running routes and feeling good but doesn't want to rush anything, so there's apparently no cause for concern here. The 30-year-old is a bit of a risk after having two of his last three seasons cut short of injury, but he's always a good bet for WR1 production when he's healthy. As such, his current ADP in the middle of the third round in PPR leagues makes him a bit of a value pick at the moment.

  • Derrius Guice - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 5/20/19 11:30am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) has reportedly 'made good progress' and is expected to take part fully in training camp, according to comments made by head coach Jay Gruden on Monday, May 20. 'Derrius is coming along very well. We're just trying to make sure that leg - his quad and everything - is full strength before we let him go. That will probably be another thing we'll wait for training camp as well,' Gruden said.

    Huddle Up: Guice returns to a much more crowded backfield than the one he left after tearing his ACL last August, as the team has since added Adrian Peterson and Bryce Love to the mix to go along with Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson. The 2018 second-rounder will likely share early-down reps with Peterson if he holds up and could eventually emerge as the starter later in the season if he finds his pre-injury form. Owners should consider him a late-round lottery ticket in fantasy drafts.
