Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Kalen Ballage - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 2/18/19 4:25pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage was impressive during his rookie season but still has room to grow, according to running backs coach Eric Studesville. 'He's a big, physical body,' Studesville said. 'He can run. He's athletic. He's got a lot of growth to do as far as seeing and recognizing things. His work ethic is tremendous. He's got speed for a big man.'

    Huddle Up: Ballage rushed for 191 yards and one touchdown in limited playing time this past season but could be a contender for the starting running back job in 2019. He has a chance to be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy running back depending on his role.

  • Robbie Gould - PK - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 2/18/19 1:04pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent PK Robbie Gould is expected to be franchise tagged this offseason if a long-term deal is not able to be reached. Franchise tags for kickers are expected to be worth $5 million.

    Huddle Up: Gould was the most accurate kicker in football last year, connecting on 33 of his 34 field-goal attempts. Even at 36 years old, Gould demands No. 1 fantasy kicker consideration.

  • Joe Flacco - QB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 2/18/19 12:23pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco passed his physical, making it possible for the Broncos and Baltimore Ravens to make their traded official in March. The Broncos agreed to trade the better of their fourth-round picks for Flacco.

    Huddle Up: The move came at the bewilderment of many, with Flacco's ceiling being about as high as Case Keenum's. Nonetheless, Flacco has proven to be a backup fantasy quarterback throughout his mediocre career.

  • Odell Beckham - WR - New York Giants
    Posted 2/18/19 10:25am ET

    New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. was sought after by the New England Patriots ahead of the last season's trade deadline, according to NBC's Chris Simms, who reported New England was the team 'most aggressively pursuing' Beckham at that point of time.

    Huddle Up: The Patriots obviously settled on Josh Gordon, but his status is such that Beckham could easily be a target of theirs again in 2019. While Gordon may be able to return again at some point in 2019, New England knows it can't count on him for any length of time. The Patriots' biggest need may be an outside receiver, and the prospect of playing the next two to three years with Tom Brady could be too tantalizing for the team to pass up if they are willing to pay the price to get Beckham.

  • Alex Smith - QB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 2/17/19 3:34pm ET

    Washington Redskins senior vice president of football operations Doug Williams said QB Alex Smith (leg) hopefully will be able to play at some point in 2019.

    Huddle Up: Smith suffered a serious leg injury and there is still not definite timetable for his return. The Redskins likely will add at least one more quarterback this season, but owners in all fantasy leagues probably should avoid the Redskins quarterback situation next season.

  • Chris Brown - WR - Free Agent
    Posted 2/17/19 1:52pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones has the ability to be a slot receiver and played the position during his college career, in the opinion of BuffaloBills.com's Chris Brown.

    Huddle Up: Jones is coming off a decent season with 652 yards and seven touchdowns. He likely will be a top-three receiver for the Bills next season and could be a late-round option in fantasy leagues.

  • Mark Ingram - RB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 2/17/19 12:23pm ET

    New Orleans Saints impending free-agent RB Mark Ingram likely will not receive the franchise tag this offseason, in the opinion of ProFootballTalk.com's Mike Florio.

    Huddle Up: The Saints likely will go with Alvin Kamara as their main running back next season and probably will be a No. 1 running back in most fantasy leagues. Ingram should receive interest from several teams during free agency and could be a No. 2 fantasy back depending on his situation.

  • Joe Flacco - QB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 2/17/19 11:49am ET

    Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco also was coveted by the Washington Redskins, helping spark the Broncos to make the trade with the Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday, Feb. 13.

    Huddle Up: Just as the QB he is replacing (Case Keenum) was in 2018, value Flacco as a mid-to-low-end QB2 next season in an offense that isn't expected to feature a high volume of passes.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 2/17/19 9:28am ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski has visited the team's facilities at Gillette Stadium multiple times since Super Bowl LIII, and one Patriots beat reporter sees that as a 'reflection of his being in a good place with how the season ended, both team-wise and personally.'

    Huddle Up: There's still no indication if Gronk will return for a 10th season, but his strong postseason (19 targets-13 receptions-191 yards-0 TDs in three games) that followed one of his least productive regular seasons (72-47-682-3 in 13 games) just might've tipped the balance. Stay tuned ...

  • D.J. Moore - WR - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 2/17/19 9:19am ET

    Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore graded out as the league's top rookie wide receiver in 2018, according to Pro Football Focus.

    Huddle Up: Moore finished second on the Panthers to RB Christian McCaffrey with 82 targets, 55 receptions and 788 yards and had at least 67 yards in four of his final seven games. Now with fellow WR Devin Funchess not expected back and a healthier Cam Newton after shoulder surgery, look for Moore to challenge for WR2 status next season.
