Shark Bites

Dolphins QB Jay Cutler stayed in the locker room at the start of the 2nd half of Sunday's game vs. the Bucs to get checked for a concussion. He completed just 6 of 12 passes with 3 INTs in the 1st half. QB Matt Moore is in the game for Miami. We'll update Cutler's status when we learn more.

Chargers QB Philip Rivers (concussion) is active for today’s game against the Bills. He practiced all week and received full clearance on Friday. Rivers is a solid QB1 vs. a Buffalo defense that’s allowed the 12th most fantasy points per game to QBs over the past 5 weeks.

Bills WR Jordan Matthews (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Chargers. That leaves Kelvin Benjamin and Zay Jones as Buffalo’s top 2 WRs.

Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) is active for today’s game against the Chargers. He was reportedly a game-time decision, so that knee is still a concern. Clay is more of a TE2 for Week 11.

Giants DT Damon Harrison (ankle) is active for today's game against the Chiefs. The ankle situation adds some risk, but he's OK to keep in most IDP lineups. CB Eli Apple, meanwhile, is inactive as a healthy scratch -- continuing the rash of issues with the Giants' secondary.

Washington ILB Zach Brown (Achilles') and S DeAngelo Hall (knee) are active for today's game against the Saints and upside tackle plays against a high-powered New Orleans offense.

Saints S Kenny Vaccaro (groin) and LB A.J. Klein (ankle) are inactive for today's game against Washington. It's the 2nd straight missed game for Vaccaro, which will put CB P.J. Williams in primary coverage on Washington slot WR Jamison Crowder. Manti Te'o should start in Klein's place but is only a marginal IDP option.

Ravens WR Breshad Perriman is a healthy scratch for today's game against the Packers. The former 1st-rounder has been brutally inefficient this year, with a 26% catch rate and 7.7 yards-per-catch average. He's well off the redraft radar and is sinking down the dynasty rankings.

Bears ILB Danny Trevathan (calf) is inactive for the 2nd straight game. He has yet to return to practice since the Week 9 bye. Christian Jones and Nick Kwiatkoski will start inside again for the Bears. Both are IDP options.

Redskins WR Ryan Grant (concussion) is active for today’s game against the Saints. He figures to serve as the #3 WR behind Jamison Crowder and Josh Doctson. Grant would be a desperation fantasy play.

Cardinals RB Andre Ellington is inactive for today's game against Houston. He wasn't listed on the injury report, so it looks like he's a healthy scratch. Arizona is clearly planning to go extremely run-heavy with Adrian Peterson in this one.

Vikings DE Everson Griffen (foot) is active for today's game against the Rams. He missed last week's game but said this week he felt "great" and participated in practice every day. Return Griffen to your IDP lineups. DE Brian Robison (back) is inactive, which dings the team defense but shouldn't impact IDP lineups.

Cardinals WR John Brown (back) is active for today’s game against the Texans. He put in just 2 limited practices this week. There’s upside in this matchup, but the back issue and QB Blaine Gabbert combine to give Brown a scary-low floor.

Bears TE Dion Sims (illness) is inactive for today’s game against the Lions. Daniel Brown and Adam Shaheen will again share TE duties for Chicago. Neither is a recommended fantasy play.

Ravens RB Terrance West is inactive for today’s game against the Packers. He put in a full week of practice after missing time with that calf injury, so it looks like West is a healthy scratch. It’ll be Alex Collins, Danny Woodhead and Buck Allen in Baltimore’s backfield.

Dolphins WR Kenny Stills is active for today’s game against the Bucs. He dealt with back spasms late this week, and there’s always a chance they resurface today. Stills is a risky WR4.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard is inactive for today’s game against the Chiefs. He’s dealing with migraines, which could cost him time beyond Week 11. It’s a situation we’ll need to monitor closely. Shepard’s absence today leaves Roger Lewis and Tavarres King as the Giants’ top 2 WRs. Both are just fantasy fliers. TE Evan Engram is a strong bet to lead the team in targets.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Browns. He was reportedly a game-time decision after being held out of Friday’s practice, so it’s tough to believe that he’s anywhere close to 100%. We’re expecting bigger roles for RBs Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon today. Fournette is more of a borderline RB1 than his usual high-end RB1.

The forecast for today's Jaguars-Browns game calls for a 45% chance of rain with winds of 20-22 mph. That wind is a concern for the passing and kicking games, but hopefully you weren't relying on those pieces too heavily anyway. Both teams were already likely to go run-heavy here. We did move Ks Josh Lambo and Zane Gonzalez down the Week 11 Rankings.

The forecast for today's Chiefs-Giants game calls for 16-20 mph winds with possible gusts over 40 mph. That's more than enough to make an impact, particularly on the deep-passing and kicking games. We just moved Alex Smith, Eli Manning, Tyreek Hill, Harrison Butker and Aldrick Rosas down the Week 11 Rankings. This could be a run-heavy game on both sides.
