Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Orleans Darkwa - RB - New York Giants
    Posted 11/20/17 1:38pm ET

    New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa (hamstring) was limited in practice Monday, Nov. 20.

    Huddle Up: Darkwa has strung some solid games together since taking over New York's lead backfield role. The Giants do have a short week as they play Thursday night, but Darkwa should be able to take the field barring any setbacks and remains an RB2 option going forward.

  • Jordan Reed - TE - Washington Redskins
    Posted 11/20/17 1:35pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) did not participate in practice Monday, Nov. 20.

    Huddle Up: Reed probably will miss another week since the Redskins play on Thanksgiving. Vernon Davis will continue to be the starting tight end while Reed is sidelined and can be considered a No. 1 fantasy tight end this week against the New York Giants.

  • Jacoby Brissett - QB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 11/20/17 1:19pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett (concussion) is still going through the concussion protocol, but head coach Chuck Pagano said he believes Brissett should be able to play in Week 12. He received most of the snaps during the team's workout Monday, Nov. 20.

    Huddle Up: Owners should check on Brissett's status later in the week to see if he suffered a setback at any point. Brissett has played well since taking over as the starting quarterback and has six touchdowns in the last three games. He could be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues if he plays.

  • Carson Palmer - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 11/20/17 1:19pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (arm) recently had his cast removed from his injured arm, according to head coach Bruce Arians. It has already been said that Palmer could return later this season.

    Huddle Up: The Cardinals could certainly use Palmer back in their huddle, although Blaine Gabbert held his own last week. It may be worth holding on to Palmer for the fantasy playoffs. He'll have a favorable matchup in Week 16 versus the New York Giants if he returns by then.

  • Will Fuller - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 11/20/17 1:05pm ET

    Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said he is not sure if WR Will Fuller (ribs) will be able to play in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Fuller will have an extra day to recover since the Texans play on Monday Night Football. Owners will need to keep an eye on his practice participation during the week to have a better idea of his status. Owners may want to keep Fuller on the bench since there would be limited options if he does not play.

  • Alfred Blue - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 11/20/17 12:40pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue (hamstring) is expected to be available to play in Week 12, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

    Huddle Up: Blue likely will be the No. 2 running back with D'Onta Foreman out for an extended period of time. He should see a handful of touches during games but can be avoided in most leagues.

  • Drew Stanton - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 11/20/17 11:28am ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Blaine Gabbert will remain the starter at least until QB Drew Stanton (knee) is back at full health, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

    Huddle Up: Gabbert was a pleasant fantasy surprise in his first start of the season last week, although he did throw two interceptions. Unfortunately, Gabbert and the Cardinals face the Jacksonville Jaguars next week. Do not start Blaine Gabbert.

  • Terrelle Pryor - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 11/20/17 11:14am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Terrelle Pryor (ankle) is having surgery on his ankle Monday, Nov. 20, according to a source. A timetable for his recovery is not yet known.

    Huddle Up: It remains to be seen if Pryor's season is mercifully at an end. Either way, he can be safely dropped in all formats.

  • Cairo Santos - PK - Free Agent
    Posted 11/20/17 9:52am ET

    Free-agent PK Cairo Santos (Chiefs) will sign with the Chicago Bears Monday, Nov. 20.

    Huddle Up: Santos dealt with a groin injury for much of the season, but he was worth owning when healthy. The Bears' offense may not provide the opportunities he had in KC, but if you're in the market for a kicker, he should be serviceable.

  • Carson Wentz - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 11/20/17 9:37am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (head) was evaluated for a concussion late in the first quarter Sunday, Nov. 19.

    Huddle Up: He clearly passed the tests, though he wasn't sharp with a 14-for-27 effort for 168 yards and two scores. He'll remain a QB1 option against the Chicago Bears next week.

  • Jake Elliott - PK - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 11/20/17 9:36am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles PK Jake Elliott (concussion) is in the concussion protocol Monday, Nov. 20.

    Huddle Up: If Elliott can't make it back for Week 12, you'll likely have to drop him for a replacement. Caleb Sturgis (hip) could come off Injured Reserve, and he'd be an option if there isn't a better one-week play to target.

  • Jay Cutler - QB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 11/20/17 9:21am ET

    Miami Dolphins QB Jay Cutler (concussion) is in the concussion protocol Monday, Nov. 20, and that he's still the starter when healthy, according to head coach Adam Gase.

    Huddle Up: Cutler (or Matt Moore) wouldn't be a good start against the New England Patriots in Week 12. Cutler has QB2 value in double-QB leagues. Monitor his status through the week.

  • Aaron Jones - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 11/20/17 9:14am ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) was arrested Oct. 1, and faces several charges stemming from a traffic stop in which he admitted to smoking marijuana. Jones has pleaded not guilty to counts of speeding, driving without a valid license and operating a vehicle with a controlled substance in his system, according to Wisconsin court records.

    Huddle Up: Jones is expected to miss two to five more weeks with an MCL injury in his knee. Jamaal Williams is an RB2 in Jones and Ty Montgomery's (ribs) absence.

  • Greg Olsen - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 11/20/17 7:55am ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) is suited up for practice Monday, Nov. 20.

    Huddle Up: Olsen pegged Week 12 as a possible return date, and it would be a fantastic matchup to have your TE1 back.

  • Brett Hundley - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 11/20/17 7:33am ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Brett Hundley will remain the starter after turning it over four times in Week 11, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

    Huddle Up: Hundley isn't an option against the Pittsburgh Steelers in standard leagues next week, and he's a rough QB2 in dual-QB leagues.

  • Danny Woodhead - RB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 11/20/17 7:07am ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Danny Woodhead played 13 of 59 plays (22 percent) in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: He should be more involved moving forward, but he's really only an option in PPR formats. He's a flex option in fantasy.

  • Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 11/20/17 6:31am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) will likely have to deal with his lingering ankle injury the rest of the season, and his workload will be limited during the week before games. Fournette said he dealt with throbbing ankle pain in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: He still managed 111 yards on 28 carries in snowy conditions. The Jags don't have any Thursday games left, which would undoubtedly cloud his status. Fournette will be an RB2 option against the Arizona Cardinals next week.

  • DeShone Kizer - QB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 11/20/17 5:55am ET

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer will start for the rest of the season, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

    Huddle Up: Kizer's fantasy value is limited to dynasty formats at this point.

  • Dez Bryant - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 11/19/17 9:14pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant caught eight passes on 14 targets for 63 yards in a 37-9 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Bryant continues to draw plenty of looks, but he has only caught 50 of the 98 balls thrown his way and has yet to top 100 yards. His volume should keep him in the low-end WR2 range, but don't expect any big games.

  • Zach Ertz - TE - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 11/19/17 9:01pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz posted two receptions for eight yards on five targets in Week 11 against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Ertz was bothered by a hamstring injury recently and perhaps he is not quite back to 100 percent. The poor game snapped a four-game streak with at least one touchdown. Despite the subpar outing he remains a TE1 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 12 against the Bears.
