Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

The New York Post's Ryan Dunleavy reports that the Giants are expected to sit "key starters" in Sunday's regular-season finale vs. the Eagles. New York is locked into the NFC's #6 seed and has nothing to play for. We've been projecting QB Daniel Jones and RB Saquon Barkley to sit all week. Look for QB Tyrod Taylor to get the start and for RBs Matt Breida and Gary Brightwell to handle backfield duties. WRs Darius Slayton, Isaiah Hodgins and Richie James could also be held out or be pulled early in Sunday's game.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) isn't listed on the final injury report and will start Sunday morning's game vs. the Packers. Jones put in limited practices on Wednesday and Thursday and a full workout on Friday. It's still tough to believe that he'll have his usual mobility this weekend, which takes away most of whatever fantasy appeal Jones has. QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) is out for Week 5, leaving QB Davis Webb as the backup.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. The New York media thought he looked better than expected in the open portion of practice. It looks like Jones is trending toward being available for Sunday morning's game vs. the Packers. QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday.

Giants QB Daniel Jones is "feeling a little bit better today," HC Brian Daboll said Monday. Daboll confirmed that Jones has a sprained ankle but wouldn't say if it's a high or low sprain. "We'll just see how that goes," Daboll added. With QB Tyrod Taylor in the concussion protocol, it's possible that the Giants are forced to start QB Davis Webb vs. the Packers in London on Sunday.

Giants QB Tyrod Taylor left Sunday's win over the Bears with a concussion. He had entered the game after Daniel Jones sprained his left ankle. Jones took back over after Taylor left. We'll see about the health of both players leading up to a Week 5 visit to Green Bay.

Giants QB Daniel Jones injured his left ankle in the 2nd half of Sunday's game vs. the Bears. QB Tyrod Taylor has replaced him. We'll update Jones' status when we know more.

Update: Jones returned to the game -- with his ankle heavily taped -- after Taylor left for a concussion check.

Giants HC Brian Daboll said Sunday that QB Tyrod Taylor "should be OK" after his injury in the preseason finale, according to Dan Salomone of the team website. Taylor left the field in the 1st half and then rode from the medical tent to the locker room on a cart with a back injury. We'll see whether he's back in time for the regular-season opener.

Giants QB Tyrod Taylor left Sunday's preseason finale with an injury. He was initially able to jog off the field for examination in the medical tent. But Taylor went from there to the locker room on a cart. We'll watch for updates.

Giants HC Brian Daboll said Tuesday morning that QB Tyrod Taylor "probably will get snaps at some point this preseason with the first team offense," according to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News. Daboll followed that by saying the team has "full confidence" in QB Daniel Jones. But this seems like more than a just in case of injury scenario. Reports on Jones out of training camp haven't been good. We have to at least consider it possible that he gets yanked for Taylor at some point this season if the struggles spill over into the real games.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Giants are expected to sign QB Tyrod Taylor to a 2-year, $17 million deal, with $8.5 million of that guaranteed. Taylor will back up Daniel Jones, and his work with Houston last year -- where he lost the starting job to 3rd-round rookie Davis Mills -- points to Taylor not being a threat to Jones' job. So this move looks like good news or Jones' chances of making it through 2022 as the Giants starter.

Texans HC David Culley named QB Davis Mills his starter for the rest of the season. "He gives us the best chance to win," Culley said, suggesting that QB Tyrod Taylor's wrist injury didn't factor into this decision. Taylor has struggled lately -- but Mills managed just 6.6 yards per attempt with 6 TDs vs. 7 INTs in 6 starts earlier this season. WR Brandin Cooks at least averaged 8.2 targets, 6.2 catches and 62.5 yards in those Mills starts. Cooks remains the only Texan worth using in fantasy lineups.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Texans QB Tyrod Taylor "is believed to have suffered possible torn ligaments" in his left wrist. That's awkwardly worded, and Rapoport adds that Houston has yet to rule Taylor out for even Week 14. But the injury is at least a mark against a veteran who played so poorly in Sunday's shutout loss to the Colts that he got yanked for rookie Davis Mills. HC David Culley said Monday morning that no decision has been made on the Week 14 QB starter yet, but it's tough to see what Houston would gain by going back to Taylor. This decision, of course, carries minimal fantasy importance.

Update: Rapoport reports the team now considers Taylor "week-to-week" and expects to start Mills in Week 14.

Texans HC David Culley said after Sunday's loss to the Colts that QB Tyrod Taylor hyperextended his left wrist. Taylor was yanked in the 3rd quarter and never announced with an injury. We'll see if he's available for Week 14 -- and whether Houston goes back to Taylor or with rookie QB Davis Mills. Either way, it's a situation to avoid in fantasy lineups.

Texans QB Tyrod Taylor was benched in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Colts. He went 5 of 13 for 45 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT before getting yanked. QB Davis Mills will finish this one out for the Texans. We'll see who gets the nod in Week 14, but it's obviously a situation to avoid in fantasy football.

The Texans have officially activated QB Tyrod Taylor from IR, so he's ready to start Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Taylor has been out with a hamstring injury since leaving the Week 2 loss to Cleveland.

Texans HC David Culley announced Thursday that QB Tyrod Taylor will start this weekend's game vs. the Dolphins. Taylor has been out since hurting his hamstring back in Week 2. He was good before going down, posting a 291-2-0 passing line vs. the Jaguars in Week 1 and completing 10-of-11 passes for 125 yards and a score before exiting in Week 2. Taylor is only a starting option in 2-QB and Superflex leagues -- but his return is good news for WR Brandin Cooks.

Texans QB Davis Mills will get another start against the Rams on Sunday. QB Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) returned to practice this week but will miss at least 1 more game. "We just don't feel Tyrod is ready right now," HC David Culley said Friday. Taylor figures to return for Week 9.

Texans QB Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) has been designated to return from IR. He'll practice this week and has a chance to return for Sunday's game vs. the Rams if all goes well. Taylor is only an option in 2-QB and Superflex leagues but will be an upgrade for WR Brandin Cooks.

Texans QB Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) will return to practice on Wednesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. HC David Culley confirmed that Taylor remains the team's starter when healthy. He was off to a strong start before going down about midway through Week 2, completing 70.5% of his passes and averaging 9.5 yards per attempt. Taylor still isn't much of a fantasy option but should at least be good news for WR Brandin Cooks.

9:02pm EDT 9/21/21

The Texans placed QB Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) on IR. He'll miss at least the next 3 games -- although the Houston Chronicle reported yesterday that Taylor could miss 4. We're about to get an extended look at 3rd-round rookie QB Davis Mills.
