Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Emmanuel Sanders - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 12/10/17 12:10pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) is officially active in the team's Week 14 game.

    Huddle Up: Sanders has been on a cold streak lately and has recorded less than 20 yards in each of the last three games. He could be a flex option in some deeper leagues, but owners can bench Sanders if they have better options available.

  • Matt Forte - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 12/10/17 12:00pm ET

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) is officially active in the team's Week 14 game.

    Huddle Up: Forte will share playing time with Bilal Powell against the Denver Broncos. He should be involved in the running and passing game this week and can be a flex option in most leagues.

  • Amari Cooper - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 12/10/17 11:54am ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in Week 14 and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Cooper entered the game with an ankle injury, but it is not known if this is the same ankle that was previously injured. Cooper has struggled at times this season and is only a No. 3 receiver at this point.

  • Tom Savage - QB - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/10/17 11:32am ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (undisclosed) was taken to the locker room after suffering an undisclosed injury in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see the severity of Savage's injury. Owners probably should avoid whoever the Texans quarterback is in all fantasy leagues.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 12/10/17 9:36am ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (shoulder) will undergo a CT scan this week to determine if he will be medically cleared to resume playing.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers has reportedly looked sharp since returning to practice Dec. 2. If all goes well, he will be able to return to action for Week 15's game against the Carolina Panthers, so he should remain stashed in all seasonal leagues. QB Brett Hundley will remain under center for Week 14 versus the Cleveland Browns but should be viewed as a low-end QB2 in all fantasy formats.

  • Chris Hogan - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/10/17 9:05am ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) is traveling with the team for their Week 14 game against the Miami Dolphins, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Hogan appears to be on track to play against the Dolphins, but owners will need to check the inactive list for his official status. He could see more targets than usual with Rob Gronkowski out of the lineup. Owners in most leagues could consider Hogan as a No. 3 fantasy receiver.

  • Cordarrelle Patterson - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 12/10/17 9:04am ET

    Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) is active for Week 14's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Patterson is likely to see fewer targets this week due to the return of WRs Michael Crabtree from a one-game suspension and Amari Cooper from an ankle injury. That being said, Patterson still merits consideration as a flex option in deeper fantasy formats versus a Kansas City secondary that will not have CB Marcus Peters (suspension) available.

  • Greg Olsen - TE - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 12/10/17 9:00am ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) is officially active for the team's Week 14 game.

    Huddle Up: Olsen is expected to receive his normal workload this week but will be a risky option because he has dealt with foot injuries for most of the season. He can still be a No. 1 fantasy tight end in most leagues.

  • Orleans Darkwa - RB - New York Giants
    Posted 12/10/17 8:58am ET

    New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa (illness) is active for Week 14's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Darkwa has collected just 70 all-purpose yards over the last two games and could lose some playing time to Wayne Gallman and Paul Perkins this afternoon. At best, Darkwa should be considered a low-end RB2 or flex option in deeper fantasy leagues.

  • Devin Funchess - WR - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 12/10/17 8:57am ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess (shoulder) is officially active for the team's Week 14 game.

    Huddle Up: Funchess has been the No. 1 receiver for the Panthers this season but will have a very tough matchup this week against Minnesota Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes. He could be considered a No. 3 fantasy receiver this week.

  • Matthew Stafford - QB - Detroit Lions
    Posted 12/10/17 8:53am ET

    Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) is officially active for the team's Week 14 game.

    Huddle Up: Stafford suffered the injury last week but likely will receive his normal workload against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He will be a risky option because the injury is to his throwing hand but can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback before of the matchup.

  • Sterling Shepard - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 12/10/17 8:52am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) is active for Week 14's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Shepard was listed as questionable on the injury report after participating in two practice sessions on a limited basis during the week. He will have Eli Manning under center again but shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a WR3 or flex option in deeper fantasy formats.

  • Amari Cooper - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 12/10/17 8:27am ET

    Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) is active for Week 14's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Cooper had an impressive showing upon his return to practice Friday, Dec. 8, but will be a risky fantasy option this afternoon because of an ankle that is still less than 100 percent. Even when healthy, he has been a major disappointment this season and is not worth starting outside of deeper seasonal leagues.

  • Doug Martin - RB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 12/10/17 7:41am ET

    Confirming a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) will start Week 14's game against the Detroit Lions, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Martin was a full practice participant throughout the week and was not listed on the injury report. He should be viewed as a risky flex option this afternoon, especially given how well RB Peyton Barber played in his absence.

  • C.J. Fiedorowicz - TE - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/10/17 7:29am ET

    After suffering at least his fourth concussion over the last two seasons, Houston Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) could be forced to retire at the age of 26, according to multiple sources.

    Huddle Up: Even if Fiedorowicz wanted to continue playing, there is no assurance that he would be able to pass the team physical. TE Stephen Anderson is Houston's starter at the position now but he is not a great fantasy option.

  • Eli Manning - QB - New York Giants
    Posted 12/10/17 7:19am ET

    New York Giants QB Eli Manning is expected to be the team's starting quarterback for the rest of the season.

    Huddle Up: Manning regains his starting job this week but has been held to under 200 yards in three of his last six games. He will have some weapons to work with in the passing game but probably should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

  • A.J. McCarron - QB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 12/10/17 7:10am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron is scheduled to have an arbitration case in February to determine if he will be a restricted free agent or an unrestricted free agent this offseason, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: McCarron has a chance to become a starting quarterback next season if he is declared an unrestricted free agent because several teams will be looking for a quarterback. He should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues next year if he wins a starting job.

  • Amari Cooper - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 12/10/17 6:58am ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) is likely to play in Week 14's game against the Kansas City Chiefs, although he will test the ankle during pregame warmups before a final decision is made.

    Huddle Up: Cooper was listed as questionable on the injury report and was able to return to practice on a limited basis Friday, Dec. 8. He has not played in several weeks and is too much of a risk to start in most fantasy leagues even if he is cleared to play.

  • Cordarrelle Patterson - WR - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 12/10/17 6:53am ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) is expected to play in Week 14's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Patterson was a limited participant in two out of three practice sessions during the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He is likely to see fewer targets this afternoon due to the return of WR Michael Crabtree from a one-game suspension but he could be a flex option in deeper fantasy leagues.

  • Matt Forte - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 12/10/17 6:46am ET

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) is likely to play in Week 14's game against the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: Forte was listed as questionable on the injury report and participated in just one practice session during the week on a limited basis. RB Bilal Powell's presence, combined with Denver's success against the run, means that Forte should be viewed as nothing more than a RB3 or flex option in most fantasy formats.
