Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Orleans Darkwa - RB - New York Giants
    Posted 11/19/17 2:45pm ET

    New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa rushed for 74 yards and one touchdown on 20 carries against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 11. He also caught two passes for 16 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Darkwa has rushed for at least 70 yards in each of the last three games and likely will keep the starting job for the rest of the season. He can be a low-end No. 2 running back or flex option in all standard leagues.

  • Eric Ebron - TE - Detroit Lions
    Posted 11/19/17 2:36pm ET

    Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron managed four receptions for 49 yards on seven targets in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Ebron has emerged as a low-end TE1 in deeper fantasy leagues with two or more grabs in four straight outings while posting at least 35 yards in each of the contests. The Lions host the Vikings on Thanksgiving in Week 12. He had two grabs for 27 yards in Week 4 in the first meeting with Minnesota.

  • Eli Manning - QB - New York Giants
    Posted 11/19/17 2:36pm ET

    New York Giants QB Eli Manning went 19-for-35 for 205 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Manning has been playing well recently with six touchdowns and one interception in the last five games. He will be playing the Washington Redskins on Thanksgiving and probably should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in most leagues.

  • Golden Tate - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 11/19/17 2:36pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate racked up three receptions for 32 yards in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears on four targets.

    Huddle Up: Tate tied a season-low with just three receptions. He also had three catches in Week 4 against the Vikings, the team's next opponent in Week 12 on Thanksgiving.

  • Marvin Jones - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 11/19/17 2:35pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones posted four receptions for 85 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: Jones rebounded from last week's effort when he had just one catch for 22 yards on two targets, both season lows. He remains a solid WR3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 12 against the Vikings on Thanksgiving. He had 42 yards on two grabs in Week 4 in the first meeting against Minnesota.

  • Theo Riddick - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 11/19/17 2:35pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed nine times for a team-high 35 yards in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears and he added one reception for four yards on two targets.

    Huddle Up: Riddick stepped up in the backfield with Ameer Abdullah going nowhere. Neither running back has a very good fantasy outlook heading into Thanksgiving against the Vikings in Week 12.

  • Ameer Abdullah - RB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 11/19/17 2:34pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah rushed 11 times for 22 yards in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Abdullah was able to salvage the stat line with two grabs for 13 yards and a touchdown, however. He remains more of an RB3 or flex fantasy option at this point, especially with a difficult matchup against the Vikings looming on Thanksgiving in Week 12.

  • Matthew Stafford - QB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 11/19/17 2:33pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Matthew Stafford completed 21 of his 31 pass attempts for 299 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 11 game against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Greedy fantasy owners will complain about just missing a potential 300-yard bonus, but this was a very good game. And hey, with Thanksgiving on Thursday, Stafford will be right back in action, albeit a tough matchup against the Vikings. He threw for 209 yards and no touchdowns in the first meeting with Minnesota in Week 4, one of only two games without a touchdown this season for Stafford.

  • Tyreek Hill - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 11/19/17 2:30pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill caught seven passes for 68 yards against the New York Giants in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Hill has been playing better recently and has been targeted at least six times in all but one game this season. He will continue to be a solid part of the passing game and can be considered at least a No. 3 fantasy receiver in leagues.

  • Travis Kelce - TE - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 11/19/17 2:24pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught eight passes for 109 yards against the New York Giants in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Kelce has posted at least 100 yards in two of his last three games and has 22 catches in his last three games. He is one of the best tight end in the NFL and is a must-start option each week.

  • Kareem Hunt - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 11/19/17 2:19pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed for 73 yards on 18 carries against the New York Giants in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Hunt has been slowing down after the fast start to the season but had a solid performance against the Giants. He will continue to receive a significant amount of touches moving forward and can be at least a No. 2 running back in all leagues.

  • Alex Smith - QB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 11/19/17 2:10pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 27-for-40 for 230 yards and two interceptions against the New York Giants in Week 11. He also rushed for 27 yards on five carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Smith failed to throw a touchdown in a game for the first time this season even though it was expected to be a favorable matchup. He has also thrown three interceptions in the last two games. He will face the Buffalo Bills in Week 12 and can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

  • DeShone Kizer - QB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 11/19/17 2:04pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer will remain the team's starter in Week 11 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, head coach Hue Jackson confirmed Sunday, Nov. 19.

    Huddle Up: Kizer will meet Jackson's former employer, the Cincinnati Bengals, next Sunday. Even though he is confirmed as the starter, he is nothing more than a low-end QB2 in the deepest of fantasy leagues using two starting signal callers at this point.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 11/19/17 2:02pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson caught two passes for 24 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Nelson has been a disappointing fantasy option for owners over the last month. He has recorded at least 50 yards in only one of his last six games. Owners should consider keeping Nelson on the bench until he has a productive game.

  • Chris Thompson - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 11/19/17 2:00pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) suffered a fractured fibula in Week 11 against the New Orleans Saints and he will require surgery.

    Huddle Up: Thompson's excellent season is over, so a majority of the backfield touches will belong to Samaje Perine down the stretch since Rob Kelley (ankle, knee) is also on the Reserve/Injured list.

  • Randall Cobb - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 11/19/17 1:59pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb caught three passes for 34 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Cobb has caught three or fewer passes in four of the last five games but has still been targeted 15 times over the last three games. Cobb can still be a flex option in some deeper leagues but can be benched if owners have better options available.

  • D'Onta Foreman - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 11/19/17 1:56pm ET

    Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') is believed to have torn his Achilles' tendon on his game-winning touchdown run in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals, sources said Sunday, Nov. 19.

    Huddle Up: It's a rough season for injuries in Houston. Even when something good happens, something bad happens on the same play. With Foreman done it appears Lamar Miller has the backfield work all too himself.

  • Davante Adams - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 11/19/17 1:54pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams caught eight passes for 128 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Adams appears to have a good chemistry with Brett Hundley and has at least 90 yards in each of the last two games. He will be facing a solid Pittsburgh Steelers defense in Week 12 but can be a No. 3 receiver for owners.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 11/19/17 1:51pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) was carted off in the Week 11 game against the Los Angeles Chargers in the first quarter due to a knee injury and he will not return.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin was grabbing his knee after a catch over the middle and he was taken off. The team announced rather early that he would not return, so that isn't a great sign. They're already without Jordan Matthews on the afternoon, so not making it easy for new QB Nathan Peterman.

  • Jamaal Williams - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 11/19/17 1:51pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams rushed for 57 yards on 18 carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 11. He also caught four passes for 38 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Williams received most of the work at running back and could see a similar workload in Week 12 if Ty Montgomery and Aaron Jones remain sidelined. He can be at least a flex option next week.
