Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 10/18/17 2:17pm ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (hamstring) practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Mariota did not suffer any setbacks on Monday against the Colts, although he was not his normal self by staying mostly in the pocket and rarely moving or scrambling. He should have a nice week against a Cleveland Browns pass defense ranking 17th in the NFL with 226.3 yards per game while allowing a league-high 14 touchdown passes.

  • DeMarco Murray - RB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 10/18/17 2:16pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Head coach Mike Mularkey said earlier in the week that Murray was dealing with soreness, but he said the back is expected to be fine for Week 7.

  • Jarvis Landry - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 10/18/17 2:08pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry (knee) did not take part in practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: The severity of Landry's knee, presumably soreness since there haven't been any other official reports, is uncertain. Wait to see how he is listed Thursday and Friday before plugging him into your lineup for Week 7. He has two touchdowns over his past two games, and he is an obvious must-start in PPR fantasy formats when healthy. He has six grabs for 48 yards on seven targets in the first meeting with the Jets back in Week 3.

  • Jay Ajayi - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 10/18/17 2:07pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Ajayi was in and out of practice last week and he was able to play, and play well. He has two 100-yard games in five outings, but he posted a season-low 16 yards on 11 rushes in Week 3 against the Jets in the first meeting.

  • Ty Montgomery - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 10/18/17 2:05pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Montgomery hasn't been fully supplanted from his starting gig by Aaron Jones, but Jones seems to be the better backfield choice right now. They both lose some value with Aaron Rodgers gone, but Montgomery does deserve a starting spot in a plus matchup against the New Orleans Saints.

  • Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 10/18/17 1:55pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Newton's limited status has been pretty standard lately, as the team limits wear and tear on his surgically repaired shoulder during the week. Any issues or lingering soreness hasn't kept him from game time, so start him as you normally would.

  • Jerick McKinnon - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 10/18/17 1:46pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) was able to take part in a full practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon had a monster game in Week 6 and now he is looking to follow it up with another, picking up the slack of the injured rookie Dalvin Cook. The Ravens rank 30th in the NFL against the run, giving up 141.3 yards per game on the ground, so it could be another banner week for McKinnon.

  • Sam Bradford - QB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 10/18/17 1:46pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Bradford has so much talent, but he just cannot stay healthy. It appears Case Keenum might be headed for another start in Week 7 against the Baltimore Ravens, but check back officially on Friday.

  • Andrew Luck - QB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 10/18/17 1:43pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) has developed soreness in his surgically repaired shoulder. He was given a cortisone shot and will rest this week. There is no timetable for his return.

    Huddle Up: Not too sound too poetic, but UGH. The frustrations with Luck and his long-awaited return will not cease. The good news is that Luck's replacement, Jacoby Brissett, has held his own as the Colts' starter. That being said, Brissett should only be started in quality matchups and/or as a bye-week replacement.

  • Jordan Matthews - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 10/18/17 1:35pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (thumb) was cleared to practice Wednesday, Oct. 18, and he was limited as expected.

    Huddle Up: Matthews has been cleared to play, but it's still uncertain if he'll suit up to face the Buccaneers in Week 7. Give him at least a game or two to knock off any rust before trusting him again as a WR4 or flex option.

  • Kareem Hunt - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 10/18/17 1:23pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (knee) will be active Thursday, Oct. 19, versus the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: The rookie phenom has been matchup-proof through the first several weeks of his first professional season. He won't have to worry about Charcandrick West stealing touchdowns this week either as West will not be active. Start Hunt as a high-end RB1 per usual.

  • Andy Dalton - QB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 10/18/17 1:22pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (ankle) was listed as a full participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Dalton will be facing a stiff test in Week 7 against the Steelers and their No. 1 ranked pass defense, as Pittsburgh has yielded just 153.5 yards per game with four touchdowns and five interceptions through six games. Dalton looks like he will definitely play, but he is not a recommended fantasy option.

  • Blake Bortles - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 10/18/17 12:46pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Bortles has avoided making an inordinate amount of crucial errors so far this season, but his production is a far cry from what his 2015 campaign gleaned. Keep him on your bench unless he's the last option you have.

  • Marqise Lee - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 10/18/17 12:42pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (knee) was not present for practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Lee's status could come down to a game-time decision if he continues to miss practice. Even if he plays he could be limited. If Lee is inactive then Allen Hurns immediately becomes a viable WR3 or flex consideration.

  • Jonathan Stewart - RB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 10/18/17 12:08pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Stewart couldn't run through a pile of cotton candy with the way he's been playing this year. His running mate, Christian McCaffrey, is the far superior play in both standard and PPR leagues nowadays. Stewart can keep wasting away on the bench as it's unlikely anyone besides his immediate family members want to trade for him at this point.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 10/18/17 11:52am ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is reportedly dealing with a knee injury that forced him to leave practice early Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: It's unknown at the moment whether or not it's the same knee he hurt in Week 3, but his early departure from practice is a small concern right now given the fact Benjamin had not appeared on the injury report over the last two weeks. If he were to miss Week 7, Devin Funchess would immediately slide into lead receiver duties and be worth starting in most leagues.

  • Demaryius Thomas - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 10/18/17 11:48am ET

    Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (leg) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Thomas appeared to leave the game multiple times in Sunday night's loss to the New York Giants but returned each time to post season highs in catches (10) and receiving yards (133). With Emmanuel Sanders expected to miss multiple weeks with an ankle injury, Thomas is in prime position to attract 10-plus targets in his absence, making him a very solid WR2 candidate in most leagues.

  • Stefon Diggs - WR - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 10/18/17 11:27am ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (groin) did not practice again Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Diggs was unable to practice all of last week and isn't getting off to a great start this week. With Michael Floyd (calf) also not practicing Wednesday, Adam Thielen could repeat his 13 targets from a week ago versus the Baltimore Ravens. If Diggs and Floyd cannot go in Week 7, it would also likely push 2016 first-round draft pick Laquon Treadwell into the starting lineup.

  • Willie Snead - WR - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 10/18/17 11:14am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead played in only 21-of-71 snaps in a Week 6 victory over the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Snead hinted last week he would get worked back into the mix slowly and that is exactly what happened. It would seem the lack of playing time was in an effort to allow him to fully recover from his hamstring injury than to further punish him for his three-game PED suspension to begin the season. Either way, expect him to double his snaps in Week 7 against the Green Bay Packers before taking on his usual workload in Week 8. Owners are advised to keep him on the bench one more week.

  • Jameis Winston - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 10/18/17 11:07am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) remains day-to-day after practicing on a limited basis Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: The Buccaneers are giving their quarterback as much time as they can to recover from the AC sprain he suffered in his throwing shoulder in Week 6. The hope is he will be able to show the coaching staff he can throw enough velocity either Thursday or Friday to warrant a start in Week 7 versus the Buffalo Bills. If he can't go, Ryan Fitzpatrick will get the nod against one of his many former teams and would qualify as a decent start in two-quarterback leagues.
