Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Albert Wilson - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 7/15/19 6:32pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Albert Wilson (hip) may start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

    Huddle Up: Wilson did not do much this offseason, so fantasy owners should monitor the situation during training camp. He played well at times last season and could be the No. 1 receiver for Miami this season if he is healthy. He has a chance to be a late-round option in fantasy drafts.

  • Andy Isabella - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 7/15/19 12:57pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Andy Isabella seems like 'a sure thing to have an initial chance,' in the opinion of Darren Urban of AZcardinals.com.

    Huddle Up: While Urban points out there are no absolutes beyond Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk, the drumbeat continues to grow for the second-round rookie. Earlier this summer, NFL Media's Gil Brandt stated he believed Isabella would be the top producing rookie wide receiver in the league. Cut from the same mold as Brandin Cooks and attached to an offense that should throw the ball a lot, it would be a total surprise to see the 5-foot-7, 188-pounder emerge as a viable flex option in fantasy at some point in 2019.

  • David Johnson - RB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 7/15/19 12:45pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson's receiving skills 'should come back to the forefront' after being 'all but ignored last season,' in the opinion of Darren Urban of AZcardinals.com.

    Huddle Up: This has been the assumption among fantasy owners since Arizona hired Kliff Kingsbury, but it always helps to get it confirmed from a scribe that covers the team like Urban does. Johnson's goal of a 1,000/1,000 season may be a bit too much to ask, but this figures to be the 27-year-old's best shot of hitting those marks since his incredible 2016 campaign. He's well worth a pick in the top half of the first round of most fantasy drafts.

  • Ezekiel Elliott - RB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 7/15/19 11:08am ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has privately said he intends to hold out of training camp unless he gets a new contract, according to Pro football Talk's Mike Florio via a league source.

    Huddle Up: Elliott still has two years left on his rookie contract, so this is a bit different than Melvin Gordon's situation. Unlike most of the running backs in the NFL in today's game, the two-time Pro Bowler has slightly more leverage here due to the lack of depth Dallas has at the position and how important he is to the Cowboys' offense. It's unlikely he'll hold out into the regular season though. However, if he does, rookies Mike Weber and Tony Pollard would likely split touches.

  • Cameron Artis-Payne - RB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 7/14/19 11:48pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey might see a little more help in the backfield, as head coach Ron Rivera searches for a secondary runner. '(McCaffrey) him touching the ball was no concern,' Rivera said. 'It was just the extra plays. So we have to look at that and find a way to take that load from him.' The team re-signed RBs Cameron Artis-Payne and Elijah Hood, they drafted RB Jordan Scarlett, signed Elijah Holyfield as an undrafted free agent and have RB Reggie Bonnafon in the mix as well.

    Huddle Up: McCaffrey will remain a first-round fantasy selection who will be the bellcow in Charlotte, but a little more rest, particularly late in games with the outcome already decided would not be a bad thing for C-Mac's long-term health. Fantasy owners shouldn't be terribly concerned.

  • Marquez Valdes-Scantling - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 7/14/19 7:16pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling said he has been working out with retired WR Randy Moss four days a week to prepare of the upcoming season.

    Huddle Up: Valdes-Scantling is in the mix to to be the No. 2 receiver in Green Bay, and if he ends up starting across from Davante Adams, he will immediately become a WR4 with upside.

  • Antonio Callaway - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 7/14/19 6:10pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Antonio Callaway has improved his game, according to QB Baker Mayfield, and Mayfield said he is 'very happy' with what he's seen out of Callaway during spring practices.

    Huddle Up: Callaway has a good chance to open the year as the No. 3 receiver because of his ability to stretch the field, but he will be an all-or-nothing fantasy option in that role. He's a late-round lottery ticket, at best.

  • C.J. Prosise - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 7/14/19 5:56pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise has head coach Pete Carroll 'fired up' heading into training camp. 'To add him into the competition is really nice,' Carroll said.

    Huddle Up: Once a promising PPR option, injuries have derailed Prosise's career. Even if he makes the roster, he won't be worth drafting.

  • Derrius Guice - RB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 7/14/19 10:11am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (hamstring) indicated that his hamstring injury is not serious.

    Huddle Up: Guice could start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list but likely will not miss a lot of practice time. Guice probably will have to share playing time with Adrian Peterson this season but could still be a No. 3 fantasy running back if healthy.

  • Ronald Jones - RB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 7/13/19 8:25pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones said he added muscle this offseason, going from 208 to 221 pounds. 'I've been training with my guy, eating four or five meals a day, protein shakes right after workouts,' Jones said. 'I'm bigger.'

    Huddle Up: Following a miserable rookie campaign, it has been nothing but positive news surrounding Jones this offseason. He still has to prove himself in games that actually matter, but he's worth a flier as a RB4.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 7/13/19 7:35pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson 'can still go,' according to QB Carson Wentz. 'I think we're going to do something special with him,' Wentz said.

    Huddle Up: While Jackson may still have the speed to produce big plays, he is going to have a tough time being a consistent contributor in Philadelphia's crowded receiving corps. Consider him an all-or-nothing WR5, and Jackson is probably more valuable in DFS contests than in redraft leagues.

  • JJ Arcega-Whiteside - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 7/13/19 7:12pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside 'made a major case for playing time during the offseason program,' according to Mike Kaye of NJ.com. 'He bullied defensive backs, at times, with his leaping ability,' Kaye said. 'He is a clear size-strength mismatch in practice.'

    Huddle Up: Whiteside has earned nothing but rave reviews this offseason, and at the very least, it seems like the rookie is going to be a weapon in the red zone immediately. At this point, he's worth a first-round pick in the back half of rookie drafts, and he's a late-round target with upside in redraft leagues.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB - Los Angeles Chargers
    Posted 7/13/19 11:43am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon said he hopes to stay with the Chargers but believes it is time for him to receive a lucrative new contract. Gordon indicated he is willing to have a lengthy holdout.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation to see if the two sides can reach an agreement before the start of the season. Gordon has been a solid fantasy option over the last few seasons and will be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 running back in 2019 if he is on the field for Week 1.

  • Cole Beasley - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 7/13/19 10:42am ET

    Buffalo Bills WRs John Brown (personal), Cole Beasley (core), Zay Jones (undisclosed) and Robert Foster (undisclosed) all missed some offseason workouts but all four are expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

    Huddle Up: The Bills added Brown and Beasley this offseason, so they will have big roles in the passing game this season. None of the Bills receivers are weekly starting options but should all have fantasy value.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 7/13/19 10:23am ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald will move around the offensive formation this season so the team can keep defenses honest, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury.

    Huddle Up: Fitzgerald had a disappointing season in 2018 but should continue to have a solid role in the passing game. He has been a consistent contributor in fantasy leagues during his career and can still be considered a No. 3 receiver in most leagues.

  • Dak Prescott - QB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 7/13/19 8:58am ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott doesn't plan to give his team a hometown discount when it comes to negotiating a contract extension. He is entering the final season of his current contract but no deal appears to be imminent.

    Huddle Up: Prescott posted solid numbers toward the end of last season, completing 72 percent of his passes for 18 touchdowns and four interceptions after the midseason acquisition of WR Amari Cooper. Based on his potential and the offensive weapons surrounding him, he should be viewed as a low-end QB1 in most formats, although he could be drafted at a mid-range QB2 price tag in many leagues.

  • Breshad Perriman - WR - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 7/12/19 1:37pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Breshad Perriman reportedly has many members of the team's brass 'most excited' about what he can bring to the table in 2019, team sources tell PewterReport.com.

    Huddle Up: Perriman won't replace DeSean Jackson nor was he signed to do so. However, he offers the same kind of deep speed Jackson does and finally started living up a bit to his first-round draft pedigree late last season in Cleveland. The former Baltimore Raven's role isn't conducive to consistent fantasy production, but if he can prove to be enough of a threat vertically, he should make life that much easier on the running game as well as Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and O.J. Howard.

  • Chris Herndon - TE - New York Jets
    Posted 7/12/19 11:55am ET

    New York Jets TE Chris Herndon received a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy as a result of pleading guilty to DUI in June of 2018, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

    Huddle Up: The Jets don't have any proven playmakers at tight end behind him, so it's a tough pill to swallow. While New York probably won't get much from the position while he is away, the Jets will likely just lean more heavily on Le'Veon Bell, Quincy Enuwa and Jamison Crowder in September. Herndon was already a TE2 in fantasy drafts, so this news may actually make him even more of a bargain. He will have low-end TE1 upside when he returns.

  • Duke Johnson - RB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 7/11/19 7:16pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson could be a player of interest for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Johnson recently switched agents and hasn't been shy about the fact that he wants out of Cleveland. Meanwhile, Tampa Bay owns one of the worst backfields in the NFL, so pursuing a versatile back like Johnson would make sense. If he lands with the Buccaneers, he'd be worth an immediate add in PPR formats.

  • Robert Foster - WR - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 7/11/19 6:13pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Robert Foster is the 'most important wideout' for the Bills, according to Bill Barnwell of ESPN.com.

    Huddle Up: Foster flashed some potential late last season, but the additions of Cole Beasley, John Brown and Tyler Kroft have the pecking order for targets up in the air heading into 2019. Still, Foster is worth a late-round flier as a WR5 in case he continues to develop into one of Josh Allen's favorite weapons.
