Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 6/13/17 11:56am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) participated in team drills at minicamp Tuesday, June 13. Head coach Sean McDermott said Watkins has responded well to a bigger workload and that workload will continue to be increased as long as Watkins can handle it.

    Huddle Up: At this rate, it looks like Watkins will be able to make a full recovery in time for the regular season as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks. He has a reputation for being injury prone, though, after missing 11 games the last two seasons. A Buffalo's No. 1 receiver, Watkins can be drafted as a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2.

  • Jamaal Charles - RB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 6/13/17 11:33am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will not participate in team drills during the Broncos' three-day minicamp. He will do some work with his helmet on, however.

    Huddle Up: The Broncos will be careful with their fragile veteran running back this offseason. Don't be surprised to see him limited in the preseason, too, after two consecutive serious knee injuries. Charles still has more value in PPR formats, but he's a high risk, medium reward player.

  • Tajae Sharpe - WR - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 6/13/17 10:51am ET

    Tennessee Titans WR Tajae Sharpe (foot) had the cast on his foot removed, and he's now in a boot.

    Huddle Up: Sharpe is expected back for training camp, but he's slated to be the third receiver. He's a late-round flyer in fantasy.

  • Jay Ajayi - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 6/13/17 10:07am ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi began working on his route running with QB Ryan Tannehill and the wide receivers in March.

    Huddle Up: Ajayi is poised for a huge workload and isn't receiving the kind of fanfare most RB1's in fantasy garner. He's an option after the first few backs are off the board.

  • T.Y. Hilton - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 6/13/17 9:43am ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is unlikely to do much during the minicamp this week due to a hamstring strain. The injury didn't appear to be a long-term concern.

    Huddle Up: Hilton is coming off a career year with a 91-1,448-6 line, and he relies on his speed. These things happen, but it's worth keeping in the back of your mind when drafting him as a low-end WR1.

  • Andrew Luck - QB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 6/13/17 9:26am ET

    Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) will be an observer in the minicamp this week, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.

    Huddle Up: Luck is expected to be ready for the season, but he may be idle until at least training camp. He remains a high-end QB1 option in fantasy.

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 6/13/17 8:33am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) remains limited in practice Tuesday, June 13. Watkins will likely be relegated to individual drills during mandatory minicamp with the potential to increase his workload in training camp.

    Huddle Up: Watkins has battled a myriad of injuries in his brief career, but he has as much talent as risk as a low-end WR2.

  • Donnel Pumphrey - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 6/13/17 7:56am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Donnel Pumphrey continues to work with the first-team offense in camp, and the team is preparing him for a role in the offense.

    Huddle Up: He'll have to usurp Darren Sproles to have a significant impact in fantasy, and that's not out of the question. He has some RB5 value in PPR leagues right now.

  • Matt Jones - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 6/13/17 7:55am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones was spotted at the team's facility Tuesday, June 13.

    Huddle Up: Jones is so buried on the depth chart that he only has RB5 value in the event that he is traded or released.

  • Jeremy Maclin - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 6/13/17 6:44am ET

    Updating previous reports, free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (Chiefs) signed a two-year, $11 million deal with the Baltimore Ravens that includes $6 million in the first year.

    Huddle Up: Maclin could emerge as the team's best receiver relatively quickly, but he shouldn't be used as more than a WR3 in fantasy.

  • DeVante Parker - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 6/12/17 5:03pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker has been making things look easy during offseason workouts and will be a big part of the offense in 2017, according to QB Matt Moore.

    Huddle Up: Parker was able to play 15 games this past season but dealt with back and hamstring injuries during the season. He will have a solid role in the passing game in 2017 and should be considered a No. 3 receiver in leagues if he is healthy.

  • DeShone Kizer - QB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 6/12/17 3:22pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler likely will continue to be the leading quarterback during drills at the upcoming minicamp even though head coach Hue Jackson said he considered changing the quarterback rotation. Kessler has been followed by QBs Brock Osweiler, DeShone Kizer and Kevin Hogan during offseason workouts.

    Huddle Up: Kessler appears to still be the leading candidate for the starting job but will continue to compete with Osweiler and Kizer during training camp. Kizer appears to be performing well so far and could be the starter at some point this season. Owners in all leagues should avoid the Browns quarterback situation no matter who starts.

  • Christian McCaffrey - RB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 6/12/17 3:08pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey will not be allowed to participate in the upcoming minicamp until Thursday, June 16, because Stanford is still having final exams.

    Huddle Up: McCaffrey has missed the offseason because of the rule and will only have a limited time with the veterans before the start of training camp. He probably will be used in a variety of ways this season but may see most of his work as a receiver. He probably should be considered a flex option in most leagues and could be a low-end No. 2 RB in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 6/12/17 3:07pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) will not throw during the minicamp this week, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

    Huddle Up: Newton will not throw until training camp and probably will be limited during practice so his surgically repaired shoulder can heal. Newton will have more weapons to work with in the passing game this season and will still be a threat to run. Owners in all leagues should consider him a No. 1 quarterback as long as he is healthy.

  • Eric Decker - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 6/12/17 2:10pm ET

    New York Jets WR Eric Decker was released Monday, June 12, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Decker is now able to choose who he plays for, as opposed to if he were traded. Quincy Enunwa now officially heads the Jets' receiving corps. Guys like Robby Anderson, Jalin Marshall and Charone Peake will have an opportunity to start now, but Enunwa is the only Jets receiver with weekly flex potential.

  • Cooper Kupp - WR - Los Angeles Rams
    Posted 6/12/17 1:22pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp is a solid candidate to be QB Jared Goff's safety blanket, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Alden Gonzalez. Gonzalez cites Kupp's route-running, football smarts and polished game as reasons for being Goff's go-to guy.

    Huddle Up: Kupp will be playing behind Tavon Austin and Robert Woods, but he'll be able to make an impact right away on a team largely devoid of talent. The Rams won't necessarily make fantasy dreams come true, and Kupp should only be drafted as a flier in later rounds.

  • Eric Decker - WR - New York Jets
    Posted 6/12/17 12:56pm ET

    New York Jets WR Eric Decker could still be traded for or signed by the Baltimore Ravens even with the Ravens signing WR Jeremy Maclin.

    Huddle Up: Baltimore's receiving corps looks a lot better with Maclin, but they could use more help after losing Steve Smith, Kamar Aiken and Dennis Pitta this offseason. Maclin's presence and the possible addition of Decker would certainly aid Flacco, but Flacco is too unreliable as a starting fantasy quarterback. Decker would remain in the WR3 to WR4 conversation.

  • Jeremy Maclin - WR - Free Agent
    Posted 6/12/17 12:47pm ET

    Free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (Chiefs) signed a two-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens Monday, June 12. Financial terms were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Maclin will be a great help to Baltimore's offense, an offense that lost Steve Smith, Kamar Aiken and Dennis Pitta this offseason, among others. He will play alongside Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman and could see some time in the slot. As for fantasy purposes, he cannot be trusted as more than a WR3.

  • Tyreek Hill - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 6/12/17 11:35am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill will not be returning kickoffs this season, according to special teams coordinator Dave Toub. Toub and the Chiefs view Hill as too valuable of a wide receiver in light of free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin's (Chiefs) release. Hill will remain the Chiefs' punt returner, however. Head coach Andy Reid has already said that managing Hill's workload won't be an issue. Reid has managed similar players in former Philadelphia Eagles RB Brian Westbrook and Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson.

    Huddle Up: It makes sense that Hill would be taken off kick returns. He's more susceptible to injury on kickoffs and will be able to utilize his speed and shiftiness more on punt returns. Kansas City's Swiss Army knife is a prime WR2 candidate.

  • Jamison Crowder - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 6/12/17 7:08am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder will play on the outside in two-receiver sets and inside in three-wide sets. He'll also return punts.

    Huddle Up: Crowder has some WR4 flash, and he could enhance it a tick more with a good camp.
