Latest Player News

All Player News
  • NYG Running Back #26
    Barkley came into the game with a doubtful designation but has now been ruled out for the contest. Expect Matt Breida to be the primary running back for the Giants against the Seahawks, backed up by Gary Brightwell. Also inactive for the Giants are S Bobby McCain, S Gervarrius Owens, T Andrew Thomas, and DL Jordon Riley
  • SEA Defensive Back #8
    Most notably, both tight end Will Dissly and tight end Noah Fant are absent from the inactives list, which should allow the Seahawks to play primarily from 12-personnel again in Week 4. The snap rates amongst the three primary tight ends have been mostly split evenly, but the bigger news is the expected low snap rates for rookie wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba.
  • DET Head Coach
    The first scheduling flex of the season has arrived! Two surprising 3-1 teams will now face off in a time slot that will reach a broader scope of viewers. With continued growth to a larger demographic this season, expect more schedule flexes as the season progresses.
  • NE Linebacker #9
    Judon is seeking a second opinion after being diagnosed with a lower bicep tendon tear in Sunday’s loss to the Cowboys. The veteran EDGE rusher will likely miss several weeks with the injury and could be a candidate for injured reserve. A leader of the Patriots’ defense since joining them as a free agent in 2021, Judon has four sacks and 13 tackles this season and has totaled 32 sacks over the last three seasons.
  • NE Defensive Back
    Gonzalez exited Week 4’s contest against the Cowboys with a shoulder injury and didn’t return to the game. We don’t yet know the exact nature of his injury or the severity of it, but according to Schefter, Gonzalez is seeking a second opinion on his injury. Gonzalez earned Defensive Player of the Month honors last weekend, and stood tall against stout group of receivers through his first three games. The loss of the promising young rookie is one of two blows the Patriots were dealt on Sunday, with Matthew Judon (biceps) also out indefinitely.
  • PIT Quarterback #8
    According to Rapoport, Pickett is also dealing with a muscle strain, but still has a shot to play this week. However, with the Steelers heading into a Week 6 bye, Pickett could get two weeks of rest while missing just one game, and be ready to go in Week 7 when the Steelers return to face the Rams. Pickett’s status will be one to monitor throughout the week, but anybody relying on him in 2QB/superflex leagues would be wise to add Mitchell Trubisky as a contingency play.
  • FA Running Back #23
    Since being traded to the Jets last October, Robinson has signed with the Patriots and Giants, and visited with the Colts — this is just since March. The former UDFA who totaled 1,414 yards from scrimmage and 10 touchdowns as a rookie hasn’t been able to stick on a roster since suffering a torn Achilles at the end of the 2021 campaign. Given his age (25) and how long it can take running backs to fully bounce back from his injury, it’s possible Robinson eventually lands on a 53-man roster. Perhaps that’s with the Packers, who have looked glaringly thin behind Aaron Jones, as AJ Dillon has gotten off to a painfully slow start to his season.
  • DET EDGE #99
    Okwara was placed on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury to open the season, but is now eligible to return. The Lions will start his 21-day window to see how he looks in the coming days, but can activate him as early as Week 5 against the Panthers. Okwara has totaled seven sacks in 29 careers games and could provide an added boost to a Lions pass rush that’s already tied for the fourth-most sacks in the league.
  • IND Running Back #28
    Steichen didn’t go into detail on what it would take for Taylor to play in Week 5, simply saying, “there could be, yeah,” when asked about the chances of the star running back playing. The Colts are opening the 21-day practice window for Taylor, meaning they still have time to ramp him up in practice before putting him on the field. We’ll see how things go throughout the week, but a return to action would undoubtedly provide a boost to both the Colts and fantasy managers’ teams.
  • WAS Wide Receiver #4
    The Commanders held a walkthrough on Monday as they prepare for their short week before facing the Bears on Thursday night, so this is just an estimation. Samuel played the entirety of the Commanders’ Week 4 loss to the Eagles so it’s interesting to see him pop up as a DNP the following day. His situation will be one to monitor heading into Week 5’s matchup against the Bears, but he could still log a limited session come Tuesday. Despite a strong 7/51 line against the Eagles, Samuel will be hard to trust as anything more than a WR4 for fantasy purposes.
