Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Emmanuel Sanders - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/19/18 11:41am ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) is 'fine' according to head coach Vance Joseph after Sanders was pulled early from the game in Week 7 against the Arizona Cardinals.

    Huddle Up: The lopsided nature of the game was probably the determining factor in Sanders not returning, although he did more than enough in the two-plus quarters he played to make his fantasy owners happy. He'll be a high-end WR2/low-end WR1 option in Week 8 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

  • Greg Olsen - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 10/19/18 11:22am ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 19, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Olsen is coming off a decent Week 6 performance and should be more involved in the passing game this week. He can be considered a No. 1 tight end in all fantasy leagues.

  • Royce Freeman - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/19/18 11:21am ET

    Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ankle) is considered day-to-day because of the ankle injury he suffered in the Week 7 game, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

    Huddle Up: Freeman will have a few extra days to rest his ankle, but owners will need to monitor his practice participation next week. He probably would have a favorable matchup if he plays in Week 8 and could be a No. 2 running back or flex option.

  • Jamison Crowder - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 10/19/18 11:01am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 7 versus the Dallas Cowboys and 'could miss a little time,' according to head coach Jay Gruden.

    Huddle Up: The Redskins are pretty banged up at receiver at the moment, although it's not as if Alex Smith has been making much use of them anyway this season. A player who averaged 66.5 catches and 100.5 targets over his last two years, Crowder was only on pace for 52 receptions and 78 targets prior to sitting out Week 6. With Paul Richardson also listed as doubtful on the injury report, the Redskins may have no choice to force the ball to Jordan Reed and Chris Thompson in the passing game.

  • Dalvin Cook - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 10/19/18 10:43am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 7 against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: There was optimism at the beginning of the week when Cook logged a full practice on Wednesday, but he left practice early Thursday and reportedly only stretched with the team Friday before departing. Owners have little choice but to continue holding Cook, although this is quickly shaping up to be another lost season for him. Latavius Murray will make another start in Cook's place and should be a decent RB2 option this week.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 10/19/18 9:46am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee) will not play in Week 7 versus the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: This will be Bernard's third straight absence. It sets Joe Mixon for another heavy workload in a great matchup, so owners can feel good about getting low-end RB1 production from him.

  • Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 10/19/18 9:29am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 7 against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: While there is a chance Fournette is able to practice and play in Week 8, it seems unlikely the Jaguars will activate him for one game in London versus the Philadelphia Eagles only to go on a bye in Week 9, meaning he will likely won't return until Week 10. T.J. Yeldon should serve as a high-end RB2 for at least two more games as a result.

  • Theo Riddick - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 10/19/18 9:10am ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (knee) did not practice for a third straight day Friday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Riddick has seen a total of 10 touches over his last three games and missed Week 6, so his absence shouldn't be that big of a deal. Kerryon Johnson should get see a bit more work in the passing game as a result.

  • Darren Sproles - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 10/19/18 8:30am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (hamstring) is expected to practice next week.

    Huddle Up: That signals Sproles is likely out again this week, but he still holds some value in PPR leagues. It'll be interesting to see how he fits, or if he fits at all, if Corey Clement continues to fill his role.

  • Josh Rosen - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 10/19/18 5:03am ET

    Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen (toe) suffered a left toe injury in the Week 7 game Thursday, Oct. 18. Head coach Steve Wilks acknowledged that, looking back at the situation and with the game already lopsided, Rosen shouldn't have been playing.

    Huddle Up: Rosen had a rough game with three early interceptions, and two of them went to the house. He's merely dynasty league stash material for now.

  • Royce Freeman - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/19/18 4:53am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ankle) suffered a sprained ankle in the Week 7 game Thursday, Oct. 18, and could miss some time.

    Huddle Up: That could be an opening for Phillip Lindsay, who had a 14-90-1 line last night. He could become a midrange RB2. Devontae Booker could resurface in fantasy circles, but it really feels like he has been given his fill of chances to no avail. He's depth in fantasy only.

  • Emmanuel Sanders - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/18/18 11:17pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the game on Thursday, Oct. 18, and did not return. He'll be evaluated by the team's training staff on Friday, Oct. 19, but Sanders said after the game that he 'should be fine' and 'probably could've finished the game.'

    Huddle Up: Sanders is the man in Denver's passing attack right now so any absence would be painful for the Broncos and fantasy owners alike. It sounds like he avoided anything serious, but keep an eye out for an official update.

  • Royce Freeman - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/18/18 11:12pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ankle) sustained a high ankle sprain during the team's victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: That's the type of injury that tends to linger, and Freeman was seen with a slight limp after the game, so this is something you'll want to stay on top of. The Broncos don't play again until Sunday, Oct. 28, so there should be plenty of time for the situation to clarify between now and then.

  • Chad Williams - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 10/18/18 10:10pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Chad Williams was targeted eight times against the Denver Broncos on Thursday, Oct. 18. He caught four passes for 34 yards.

    Huddle Up: Williams' eight targets were both tied for the team lead and a career high. He's been a bit more involved recently, and the former third-round pick could be added to watch lists in larger leagues.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 10/18/18 9:58pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald was targeted eight times, catching four passes for 40 yards and a touchdown during the the team's Week 7 loss to the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: It took seven games, but the future Hall of Famer finally scored a TD. Although it's a step in the right direction for the veteran, whose eight targets were tied for the team lead, it's still difficult to advocate putting Fitzgerald in your starting lineup unless you're really up against it.

  • Christian Kirk - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 10/18/18 9:51pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk caught three passes for 57 yards against the Denver Broncos in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: This was a step back for Kirk after topping 75 yards in three of his previous four games, but the offense as a whole sputtered, and Kirk's 57 yards were 17 more than anyone else. While you'll need to pick your spots with Kirk, he's definitely worth owning.

  • David Johnson - RB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 10/18/18 9:27pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson carried the ball 14 times for 39 yards and added 31 yards on three receptions during the team's blowout loss to the Denver Broncos on Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: While the yardage was on brand for Johnson in recent weeks, this was the first time since Week 2 that he was kept out of the end zone. It's a bleak time in the desert, but Johnson has done enough to hold RB2 value going forward.

  • Josh Rosen - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 10/18/18 9:20pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen (foot) appeared to injure his foot late in the team's Week 7 loss to the Denver Broncos. Rosen said he was 'fine' during his post-game press conference while head coach Steve Wilks indicated he's waiting for an evaluation.

    Huddle Up: Rosen said he's alright, so it looks like he might've escaped the old "insult to injury" thing (or, in this case, injury to insult). Either way, Rosen's value at this stage lies exclusively in dynasty leagues.

  • Josh Rosen - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 10/18/18 8:55pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen completed 21 of his 39 passes for 194 yards, a touchdown and three interceptions in a 45-10 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 7. He was also sacked six times and lost two fumbles.

    Huddle Up: The Cardinals are just a bad football team, and Rosen's struggles seem to be growing. He's only worth considering in dynasty formats.

  • Demaryius Thomas - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/18/18 8:46pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas caught five of his six targets for 42 yards in a 45-10 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Case Keenum seems to prefer Emmanuel Sanders as his go-to option, and it has resulted in several mediocre outings for Thomas. He has had at least five catches in five of the seven games, but without many big plays, Thomas is a low-end WR3 at this point.
