Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

The NFL announced Tuesday that it won't resume the Bills-Bengals game -- halted by S Damar Hamlin's collapse -- this week. The league added that it will keep the Week 18 schedule intact and that no decision has yet been made on how to treat Monday night's game going forward. That means fantasy football leagues and contest providers will either have to wait for further word on the resumption of that contest or figure out alternate solutions. We'll certainly be watching for updates on that front -- as well as, of course, any updates on Hamlin's condition.

7:04pm EST 1/2/23

Bills S Jordan Poyer (knee) is active for tonight's game against the Bengals. He was questionable after getting in just 1 limited practice. On the Cincinnati side, DE Sam Hubbard (calf) is inactive.

Rams EDGE Leonard Floyd (illness) is active for today's game against the Chargers. Use him as planned in IDP lineups.

Bills S Jordan Poyer (knee) is questionable for Monday night's game against the Bengals. He missed practice Thursday and Friday before returning for a limited Saturday workout. The late kick makes Poyer tough to wait for in IDP lineups. If you plan to wait for Poyer and can't back him up with either Bengals safety or Bills S Damar Hamlin, Jaquan Johnson would be Poyer's fill-in.

Bills TE Dawson Knox (hip) practiced in a limited fashion for the 2nd-straight day. With this game coming on Monday night, we won't have an idea about Knox's status for a couple of days, potentially. We'll keep an eye on his status tomorrow. Knox has averaged 6.7 targets on a 21.5% share over the last 3 games. The Bengals rank 9th in adjusted fantasy points allowed to TEs, but Knox is in the low-end TE1 discussion in what should be a high-scoring game.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs (illness) returned to practice on Friday after being absent the day before. It looks like the star wideout is feeling better. Diggs is a no-doubt WR1 option despite last week's disappointing effort. If you've made it this far, start Diggs in Week 17.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs (illness) missed Thursday's practice. Hopefully the star wideout feels better soon. TE Dawson Knox (hip) logged limited participation. With Week 17's game vs. the Bengals occurring on Monday night, these Bills pass-catchers will have an extra day to get right. We'll track their statuses as more information becomes available.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs garnered just 2 targets in Saturday's win at Chicago, catching both for a mere 26 yards. WR Gabriel Davis led the team with 6 targets, catching 3 for a team-high 45 receiving yards and a TD. TE Dawson Knox followed with a 3-38-1 receiving line on 5 targets. RB Devin Singletary was the only other Bill to catch more than 1 pass.

Bills QB Josh Allen went just 15-of-26 passing for 172 yards on a cold, windy day in Chicago on Saturday. He threw for 2 TDs, but also 2 INTs. Allen added 41 yards and a TD on the ground to save his fantasy day. He and the Bills visit the Bengals on Monday night in Week 17, a game with shootout potential.

The forecast for today's Bills-Bears game calls for temperatures in the single digits, wind chill below zero and winds of 20-25 mph with gusts of 35-40 mph. Not quite as bad as what we're seeing in Cleveland -- but pretty ugly. We've adjusted our projections for this game to account for the weather.

The Score's Jordan Schultz hears that the Patriots "plan to sit" RB Damien Harris (thigh) against the Bengals today. "However, I’m also told he might still dress and be made available in an emergency," Schultz adds. We'll get New England's inactives around 11:30 am ET, but Harris needs to be on fantasy benches. His continued absence is a boost to RB Rhamondre Stevenson.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (thigh) was listed as a limited participant in practice on Tuesday. Teammate Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) was tagged with the same designation regarding an injury of his own. Should either Patriots back miss Week 16 vs. the Bengals on Saturday, rookies Kevin Harris and Pierre Strong Jr. would be in line to pick up the backfield responsibility. The Bengals rank as the 10th-toughest matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs, however, so the game will be tough sledding for whoever suits up this week.

Bills TE Dawson Knox led the team in receptions (6) and receiving yards (98) and caught a TD pass in Saturday night's win over the Dolphins. Knox finished 2nd on the team with 8 targets, trailing only WR Stefon Diggs. WR Gabriel Davis followed at 6 targets, catching 4 for 56 yards.

Bills RB James Cook caught a TD pass from 4 yards out in Saturday night's win over the Dolphins. He totaled just 2 receptions for 5 yards among 3 targets, though and rushed 5 times for 34 yards. Cook trailed Devin Singletary in each category, making him difficult to start in a Week 16 visit to the Bears. Singletary tallied 42 yards on 13 carries and caught 3 of 4 targets for 28 yards.

Bills QB Josh Allen threw for 304 yards and 4 TDs in Saturday night's win over the Dolphins. He completed 25 of 40 passes (62.5%), taking just 2 sacks and tossing no INTs. Allen threw TD passes to TE Dawson Knox, RB James Cook, TE Quintin Morris and RB Nyheim Hines. The QB added 77 yards on 10 rushing attempts, leading the team in that category. Allen gets a weak Bears defense on the road in Week 16, and then a weak Bengals pass defense in Week 17.

The Patriots have downgraded RB Damien Harris (thigh) to out for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Rhamondre Stevenson remains questionable as of now and seemed like the worse bet to play in this game. He put in only a limited Friday practice this week after leaving Monday night's win over the Cardinals with an ankle sprain. Harris managed limited participation every day. If Stevenson is also inactive, rookies Kevin Harris and Pierre Strong would likely split backfield time. We'd bet on the team also elevating J.J. Taylor from the practice squad in that case. Exactly how New England would split the work among those 3 players would obviously be more guess than projection, given the very limited roles for all 3 RBs this season.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) missed practice again on Thursday. He's looking unlikely to play vs. the Raiders this weekend. RB Damien Harris (thigh) was limited for the 2nd straight day. We'll get New England's final injury report tomorrow.

As expected, Patriots RB Damien Harris (thigh) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Cardinals. RBs Kevin Harris and Pierre Strong are active, but Rhamondre Stevenson should dominate backfield work.

Bills TE Dawson Knox led the team in targets (7), receptions (4) and receiving yards (41) on a poor passing day in Sunday's win over the Jets. WR Stefon Diggs managed just 3 catches for 37 yards among 5 targets. WR Gabriel Davis added only 3 receptions for 31 yards on 4 looks. Buffalo should be in for more passing success against a weaker Dolphins defense in Week 15.

Bills QB Josh Allen threw for a season-low 147 yards in Sunday's win over the Jets. He went just 16 of 27 passing, with 1 TD, taking 3 sacks along the way. Allen saved his fantasy line with 1 TD and 47 yards on 10 rushing attempts. That helped him crack 20 fantasy points for just the 2nd time among his past 5 outings, by ESPN scoring. Favorable matchups with the Dolphins and Bears await the next 2 weeks.
