Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Dontrelle Inman - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/22/17 2:00pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Dontrelle Inman (groin) fully participated in practice and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Inman has not been targeted in the first two games of the season but should still receive some playing time against the Kansas City Chiefs. Owners probably should look for other options to use in their lineups and can avoid Inman.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/22/17 1:52pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 22, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Gordon should have a good chance to play, but owners will need to check the inactive list to see if he will be in uniform. Gordon would be facing a tough Kansas City Chiefs defense but can still be a starting fantasy option if he plays.

  • Amari Cooper - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 9/22/17 1:51pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) practiced in full Friday, Sept. 22, and was removed from the injury report heading into Week 3 against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Cooper faces a Redskins pass defense allowing 266.5 yards per game, so there is opportunity for a big stat line. He remains a solid WR2 in all fantasy leagues for Week 3.

  • Chris Thompson - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/22/17 1:50pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (back) was able to practice in full Friday, Sept. 22, and he has been removed from the injury report ahead of Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: Despite his full bill of health, and Rob Kelley's questionable status, Thompson is still expected to be the third-down back against the Raiders. The coaching staff feels he is a bit smallish and unable to take the full beating of being the featured back, so look for Samaje Perine to be relied upon more if Kelley is out, limited or needs a rest.

  • Rob Kelley - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/22/17 1:50pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ribs) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 22, and is questionable for Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders. He remains in pain, and has been trying different things to alleviate the discomfort including sleeping with pillows on his back. He added that he might wear a protective vest if he plays.

    Huddle Up: The second-year back out of Tulane has managed 10 or more carries in each of his first two games and he'll remain the lead back for the Redskins when healthy, with Chris Thompson working in a third-down capacity and Samaje Perine seeing work in relief. Kelley is best used as a RB3 or flex play when healthy.

  • Josh Doctson - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/22/17 1:49pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) practiced in full Friday, Sept. 22, and was removed from the injury report for Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: Doctson, the former first-round pick, has a ton of upside and potential but he has had a difficult time showing it since he has been hampered by injury for his entire career. Fantasy owners will want to monitor his performance over the next few weeks. If he can stay on the field and play a decent amount of snaps, he has the potential to be a stud. However, it's too soon to rely upon him right now.

  • Jordan Reed - TE - Washington Redskins
    Posted 9/22/17 1:49pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (ribs, chest) was a limited participant in practice Friday, Sept. 22, and is considered questionable for Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders. He said while he has a full range of motion in his shoulder, he expects to be a game-time decision.

    Huddle Up: Reed has so much talent, and is a must-start fantasy option when healthy. Unfortunately, those times are few and far between, as he always seems to be dealing with a nagging injury to keep him from being 100 percent.

  • Mike Williams - WR - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 9/22/17 1:48pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 22, but has been ruled out for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Williams appears to be getting closer to playing but may need another week or two of practice. Williams could be a fantasy option during the second half of the season.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/22/17 1:40pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (quadriceps) fully practiced Friday, Sept. 22, and is officially listed as questionable.

    Huddle Up: Nelson is expected to give it a whirl, but injuries of this nature are notorious for being aggravated. Consider him a moderate risk with his usual reward offerings as a WR1. Nelson could see more with with Randall Cobb listed as doubtful, too.

  • Randall Cobb - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 9/22/17 1:35pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (chest) did not practice Friday, Sept. 22, and is listed as doubtful against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Cobb is highly unlikely to play, but the good news is Jordy Nelson is likely to start. Deactivate Cobb in all formats, and consider Aaron Rodgers slightly less likely to have a sound game.

  • Evan Engram - TE - New York Giants
    Posted 9/22/17 1:30pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New York Giants TE Evan Engram (concussion) has cleared the concussion protocol and is no longer on the Week 3 injury report.

    Huddle Up: Engram should receive his normal workload in Week 3 and could have a big role since several Philadelphia Eagles safeties are dealing with injuries. He could be low-end No. 1 tight end or flex option for owners.

  • Odell Beckham - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 9/22/17 1:24pm ET

    New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 22, but is not on the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Beckham is still dealing with the injury but will be on the field against the Philadelphia Eagles this week. He was held to only 36 yards in Week 2 but should see more targets against a depleted Eagles secondary. Owners should consider Beckham at least a No. 2 fantasy receiver this week.

  • Matt Forte - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 9/22/17 1:17pm ET

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) was removed from the injury report after fully practicing Friday, Sept. 22.

    Huddle Up: Forte saw an uptick in touches last week but remains part of what will be a weekly headache as a trident backfield -- one that figures to struggle more often than not, mind you. Avoid him in all situations where a clearer path to stable point production is available.

  • Torrey Smith - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 9/22/17 1:14pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR Torrey Smith (illness) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 22, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Smith could be a game-time decision, so owners will need to check the inactive list for his status for the game. He will be facing a solid New York Giants defense this week and could be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

  • Jordan Howard - RB - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/22/17 1:07pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Howard was limited to seven rushing yards in Week 2 and will continue to share work with Tarik Cohen at running back. He will be facing a solid Pittsburgh Steelers defense and could be benched if owners have better options available.

  • Zach Miller - TE - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/22/17 12:59pm ET

    Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller (non-injury) fully participated in practice and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Miller has been targeted 15 times in the first two games and should continue to be a solid option in the passing game for the Bears. Miller should be owned in most fantasy leagues but can be left on the bench this week.

  • Kendall Wright - WR - Chicago Bears
    Posted 9/22/17 12:57pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Kendall Wright (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Wright has become the team's No. 1 receiver and is coming off a solid Week 2 performance when he caught seven passes for 69 yards. He will be facing a good Pittsburgh Steelers defense this week and could be benched if owners have better options to use.

  • Allen Hurns - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/22/17 12:44pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Hurns moved up the depth chart when Allen Robinson suffered his injury and posted 82 yards and one touchdown in Week 2. He will be facing a tough Baltimore Ravens defense this week but could be a possible flex option in deeper leagues.

  • DeMarco Murray - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 9/22/17 12:38pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry is expected to get a 'significant workload' in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks, regardless of whether DeMarco Murray plays or not, according to ESPN's Cameron Wolfe. Murray returned to practice as a limited participant Friday, Sept. 22, running routes and catching passes during individual drills. While Murray showed some instances of acceleration as a runner and receiver during the practice, it was far from what he would be expected to do in game action, according to Wolfe.

    Huddle Up: The Titans are handling this situation correctly, as there is no reason to push Murray through a hamstring injury, although having a talent like Henry on the roster makes it an easier decision. Henry is quite the luxury to fall back on when the reigning AFC rushing champion is not 100 percent and should be plugged into lineups as a RB2 despite the tough matchup.

  • Blake Bortles - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 9/22/17 12:31pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Bortles is still not posting great numbers over the first two games of the season and lost his No. 1 receiver to a major injury. Owners in all leagues should avoid Bortles most weeks.
