Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

Rams TE Tyler Higbee has been activated from the COVID list. He was forced to miss Monday night's game vs. the Cardinals due to a false positive -- a tough break for fantasy owners who needed him. Higbee will be back for Sunday's game vs. the Seahawks and could play an expanded role if WR Odell Beckham misses with his COVID.

The Rams have placed CB Jalen Ramsey on the COVID list, which means he'll miss the Monday night matchup with Arizona. That leaves L.A. without its lead cover man and can only enhance the matchup for Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins -- as well as the rest of the pass-catchers. It's not clear what the plan will be at corner, where the Rams already had to place slot CB Dont'e Deayon on the COVID list. David Long figures to join Darious Williams in the starting lineup. The #3 spot appears up in the air. Williams and Long are the only 2 CBs on the active roster on the team website. The next man up could be an extra safety or former Giants DB Grant Haley (listed as a "DB").

The Rams have added TE Tyler Higbee to the COVID list, knocking him out for tonight's game against the Cardinals. That leaves Kendall Blanton and Brycen Hopkins at TE for the team. Blanton led Hopkins 5-3 in routes last week. Hopkins, however, was drafted earlier (Round 4 vs. undrafted), enjoyed the much more productive receiving career in college and brings a 75th-percentile speed score and 73rd-percentile SPARQ-x score for the position, according to PlayerProfiler.com. If you need a desperation fill-in TE, we'd go with him. Higbee has averaged just 5.2 targets per game for the year, so we don't expect his absence to significantly impact the fantasy outlook for anyone else on the team. We'll see whether he can make it back for the team's Week 15 game against Seattle.

The Rams have placed RB Darrell Henderson on the COVID list. That will knock the RB out for Monday night's game against the Cardinals, leaving Sony Michel to lead the backfield for the 2nd straight week. Michel delivered a big rushing performance against Jacksonville last week and becomes a strong fantasy play for the week.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson missed Saturday's practice with an illness. He'd been limited the previous 2 days with the thigh injury that kept him sidelined in last week's win over the Jaguars. We'll see how Henderson is listed on the final injury report later today.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (thigh) remained limited in Friday's practice. We'll see what he does tomorrow and then how he's listed on the final injury report for Monday night's game vs. the Cardinals.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) isn’t listed on the final Week 14 injury report. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, and will return for Sunday night’s game against the Packers. Robinson was having a disappointing season before this hamstring injury and can’t be trusted in fantasy lineups in his first game back.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (thigh) was listed as a limited participant in Thursday's practice. He was limited last Friday before being active but not playing a snap in the Jaguars game. Henderson's availability and role in Monday night's game vs. the Cardinals remains uncertain. We'll look for clues over the next few days

Bears WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice. It's his first official workout since Chicago returned from the Week 10 bye. We'll see if Robinson is ready for Sunday night's game vs. the Packers, but he wouldn't be a recommended fantasy starter.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (thigh) is active for today’s game vs. the Jaguars. Fox’s Jay Glazer reported earlier that Henderson would be "available" but not the "feature back." We’ll see exactly how much he ends up playing, but we’re projecting RB Sony Michel to lead the backfield in touches.

Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reports that the Rams expect RB Darrell Henderson (thigh) to be "available" for today's game vs. the Jaguars. Glazer adds, though, that Henderson isn't expected to be the "feature back." It's unclear exactly how much Henderson will play. It's a tough situation to decipher. We're still betting on RB Sony Michel leading the backfield in touches today, making him the better fantasy bet.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Cardinals. With WR Marquise Goodwin (foot) also out, Chicago is down to WRs Damiere Byrd, Jakeem Grant and Isaiah Coulter behind Darnell Mooney.

The Rams will test RB Darrell Henderson's injured thigh before today's game vs. the Jaguars, but the team is "not optimistic" about his chances of playing, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Henderson got in just a limited practice on Friday, and the Rams shouldn't feel any need to push him in an easily winnable game. We won't get Los Angeles' inactives until a little after 2:30 pm ET, but fantasy owners should assume at this point that Henderson won't play. That'd leave Sony Michel as the Rams' lead back and a RB1 in fantasy lineups. Mekhi Sargent is the only other RB on the roster.

Update: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport tweets that Henderson is "hopeful" to play today but "may not have a full workload." We'll look for further updates.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (thigh) is questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Jaguars. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. HC Sean McVay expressed optimism about Henderson's status early in the week but called him a game-time decision on Friday. Rams-Jags doesn't kick off until 4:05 pm ET on Sunday, but we'll look for an update on Henderson that morning. If he ends up sitting, Sony Michel will be a RB1.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) is doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Cardinals. WR Marquise Goodwin (foot) has been ruled out, leaving Damiere Byrd, Jakeem Grant and Isaiah Coulter behind Darnell Mooney. Mooney has racked up 24 targets over the past 2 weeks and is a strong volume bet again on Sunday.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (thigh) missed practice again on Thursday. HC Sean McVay has been optimistic about Henderson's status for this weekend's game vs. the Jaguars, but he shouldn't be considered a lock to play. We'll get another update tomorrow.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (thigh) did not practice on Wednesday. HC Sean McVay said that he expects Henderson to play vs. Jacksonville this weekend, but his status needs to be monitored over the next few days. Backup RB Sony Michel should be stashed in all fantasy leagues.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. He hasn't hit the practice field since Chicago came out of the Week 10 bye. WR Darnell Mooney will continue to dominate targets if Robinson misses Sunday's game vs. the Cardinals.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson is dealing with a quad strain and will be "monitored" throughout the week, HC Sean McVay said Monday. We'll keep an eye on Henderson's practice participation, but RB Sony Michel needs to be owned in all fantasy leagues. He'd be a RB1 if Henderson is inactive for Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars.

Rams QB Matt Stafford's health is "certainly an issue," ESPN's Dianna Russini reports. Stafford is dealing with elbow pain and a chronic back issue, per Russini. Stafford has looked banged up on a few occasions this season and struggled in his last 2 outings prior to the bye. He's not listed on the Week 12 injury report, and we're not altering Stafford's projections vs. the Packers today. But his health will be worth keeping a close eye on the rest of the way.
