Josh Huff WR PHI (4) 11 hours ago
The Buccaneers promoted Huff from the practice squad Tuesday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Huff was used sparingly in two-plus seasons with the Eagles, racking up 48 catches (on 75 targets) for 482 yards and four touchdowns through Week 8 of this season. However, his arrest on Nov. 1 for speeding, DUI, drug possession, and possessing a firearm without a permit was the last straw, as he was released two days later. After spending a month on the Bucs' practice squad, his services were required after Cecil Shorts suffered a devastating knee injury Sunday at San Diego. With fellow wideout Adam Humphries also in the concussion protocol, Huff could have a regular role right off the bat behind Mike Evans, Russell Shepard, and Freddie Martino.
Vontaze Burfict LB CIN (9) 11 hours ago
Burfict intercepted two passes while adding 15 tackles Sunday against the Eagles.
Burfict had an incredible afternoon, as he posted his highest tackle total of the season and posted his first interceptions of 2016. He's been an absolute beast since Week 4, and aside from the linebackers who consistently sack the quarterback, he's one of the very best IDP options in the league.
Connor Barth K CHI (9) 12 hours ago
Barth drilled a field goal and three extra points Sunday against the 49ers.
Barth was true on a 45-yard field goal in the snow at Soldier Field while also connecting on his only three extra point attempts. This was his highest scoring output in four weeks, and he's failed to reach seven points in all but three games in 2016. He's little more than an emergency option in most fantasy leagues.
IRCecil Shorts WR TB (6) 12 hours ago
The Buccaneers placed Shorts (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The move was expected after Shorts dislocated and tore the ACL, MCL, and PCL in his right knee Sunday at San Diego. With his season over, he finishes with 11 catches (on 27 targets) for 152 yards. In order to replenish the receiving corps, the Buccaneers have promoted Josh Huff from the practice squad.
Willie Young LB CHI (9) 12 hours ago
Young (knee) tallied a sack and a tackle Sunday against the 49ers.
Young has only collected 1.5 sacks over his last six games after starting out the season hot with six sacks in the first six matchups of 2016. It's certainly possible that he could get hot to end the season, making him an upside add in IDP leagues during the fantasy playoffs.
Eddie Goldman DL CHI (9) 12 hours ago
Goldman recorded a sack and two tackles Sunday against the 49ers.
In five games this year, Goldman has 2.5 sacks, and he's continuing to build on the success he had as a rookie in 2015. As an interior lineman, he's an emerging IDP option, and one who could be a sneaky add in leagues that use defensive tackles.
Leonard Floyd LB CHI (9) 12 hours ago
Floyd (concussion) registered two sacks and four tackles Sunday against the 49ers.
Floyd continued his impressive rookie season by notching his sixth and seventh sacks of the year. He's had 6.5 of those sacks over his last five games, and he's a player who should be rostered in all IDP leagues.
Nick Kwiatkoski LB CHI (9) 12 hours ago
Kwiatkoski recorded nine tackles Sunday against the 49ers.
With both Danny Trevathan (knee) and Freeman (suspension) missing action, Kwiatkoski filled in nicely with nine tackles. Based on his ability to collect tackles, he could be a streaming option for IDP teams chasing tackles until Freeman returns to action.
Akiem Hicks DL CHI (9) 12 hours ago
Hicks notched a pair of sacks and 10 tackles Sunday against the 49ers.
Hicks recorded two sacks in a game for the second time in his last five contests, and he has six sacks on the year. Although he's a very solid player in defensive coordinator Vic Fangio's defense, his sporadic production makes him a very low-floor option in IDP leagues.
Jeremy Langford RB CHI (9) 12 hours ago
Langford carried the ball once for two yards Sunday against the 49ers.
Langford spent the majority of the day on the sidelines while Jordan Howard tore through the 49ers defense. He's only had one touch in each of the last two games, and he only has fantasy value if Howard is forced to miss time.
