Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Darren Sproles - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 5/19/18 7:13pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) will have a big role in the offense, despite being 34 years old and coming off of a torn anterior cruciate ligament, in the opinion of Eliot Shorr-Parks, of NJ.com. Sproles was not signed to be a feel-good story, according to Shorr-Parks, and it would not be a surprising to see the veteran near or even atop the depth chart.

    Huddle Up: Sproles might have a little gas in the tank for PPR gamers, but this is a crowded backfield. With Jay Ajayi and Corey Clement being more explosive, Sproles could be relegated third-down work and have an erratic role. Treat him as a roster-filling RB4 or No. 5

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 5/18/18 7:22pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones is not expected to participate in organized team activities in part because he wants the team to update his contract. Jones has been in regular contact with head coach Dan Quinn and the team is open to updating Jones' contract. Jones is scheduled to make $10.5 million in 2018.

    Huddle Up: It appears that Jones is on good terms with the team but could sit out the rest of offseason workouts. Jones is one of the best receivers in the NFL and should be a first- or second-round pick in all fantasy drafts in 2018.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 5/18/18 1:48pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones is not expected to report for organized team activities next week, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Jones is looking for a new contract, so he may not be on the practice field until training camp. He is a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues as long as he does not hold out during the season.

  • Sammy Watkins - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 5/17/18 7:58pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson's rapport with QB Patrick Mahomes and the presence of WR Tyreek Hill and WR Sammy Watkins on the outside should allow him to exploit defenses underneath this season, according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.

    Huddle Up: Kansas City suddenly has a crowded receiving corps, but if Mahomes excels, Robinson could be a nice depth option for fantasy owners in PPR formats.

  • Chris Thompson - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 5/17/18 7:44pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice will likely be the starter according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com, but Rosenthal said it 'wouldn't be a surprise' if RB Chris Thompson ended up playing more snaps this year.

    Huddle Up: Prior to his injury last year, Thompson had emerged as a dynamic weapon in the passing game. Expect the same role for Thompson in 2018, and he should be an excellent flex option in PPR formats.

  • Cody Latimer - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 5/17/18 7:37pm ET

    New York Giants WR Roger Lewis could emerge as the No. 3 receiver this year ahead of WR Cody Latimer, according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.

    Huddle Up: Even if Lewis wins the job, he figures to be fifth in the pecking order for targets. He can be ignored in fantasy leagues for now.

  • Danny Amendola - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 5/17/18 7:15pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Danny Amendola's work ethic has been impressing the coaching staff and rubbing off on the locker room, according to head coach Adam Gase. 'Any time you can get a guy who can not only produce for you but can be a great example for other guys in your locker room, he's making other guys better,' Gase said. 'He makes 24 other offensive guys better if they watch him work.'

    Huddle Up: Amendola should have a steady role as Miami's slot receiver this year, but injuries are always a concern. He's a potential WR3 in PPR formats.

  • Eric Ebron - TE - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 5/17/18 7:09pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron could be the 'de facto third receiver' this year, according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.

    Huddle Up: Ebron has teased fantasy owners with his upside since entering the league. There is always a chance Andrew Luck could finally unlock Ebron's potential, but he is no more than a flier as a TE2.

  • Alex Collins - RB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 5/17/18 6:59pm ET

    The Baltimore Ravens' decision not to select a running back in the 2018 NFL Draft is a sign that they are comfortable with RB Alex Collins as their starter, according to Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com.

    Huddle Up: Collins proved to be a workhorse between the tackles once he was given a chance, and he should remain the lead back on early downs and near the goal line this year. He won't do a lot in the passing game, but draft him as a RB2 in standard formats.

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 5/17/18 6:52pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller will likely keep his roster spot and open the year as the starter because RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') is still recovering, according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.

    Huddle Up: Miller has been a volume-based RB2 while with the Texans, but a lack of explosive plays has opened the door for Foreman. Foreman has the higher ceiling and is the better long-term investment, but both backs will be worth owning.

  • Adam Shaheen - TE - Chicago Bears
    Posted 5/17/18 6:18pm ET

    Chicago Bears TE Adam Shaheen's skill set fits the offense, according to head coach Matt Nagy.

    Huddle Up: The Bears signed Trey Burton in the offseason, and he figures to be the top option at tight end. Shaheen has great physical tools, but he remains a project and is only worth stashing in dynasty formats at this point.

  • Charles Sims - RB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 5/17/18 2:49pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims is expected to be a third-down back this upcoming season because of his ability to pass protect and catch the ball out of the backfield, according to offensive coordinator Todd Monken.

    Huddle Up: Sims has a good chance to make the 53-man roster and likely would see a handful of touches each game. He could be a late-round option in point-per-reception leagues but will not be a weekly starting option for fantasy owners.

  • Chris Godwin - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 5/17/18 10:04am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin has earned the opportunity to begin the regular season as a starter, according to offensive coordinator Todd Monken.

    Huddle Up: One can deduce that this means Godwin would start over Adam Humphries and alongside Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson. Godwin showed flashes as a rookie, gaining 525 yards on just 34 catches. He's more of a late-round flier in standard leagues.

  • David Johnson - RB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 5/17/18 7:54am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) said his wrist feels great, and he's aiming for 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards.

    Huddle Up: The team will be deploying a fullback this year, which will give him an added layer of protection. They'll have to prove that they can move the ball downfield to keep defenses honest, though. Sam Bradford throws a ton of short passes, and DJ should be an RB1 as long as he's healthy.
