The Seahawks have agreed to a 2-year deal with DE Carlos Dunlap. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that it's worth $16.6 million, with $8.5 million guaranteed. Seattle released Dunlap earlier in the offseason, but the new deal makes it clear that was a cap move. Dunlap went from falling out of favor in Cincinnati and registering just 4 QB hits in 7 games to rebounding after a trade to the Seahawks. Dunlap delivered 14 hits over 8 games in Seattle, despite a foot injury that cost him 1 week and limited his playing time in at least 2 others. Dunlap has DL2 potential for 2021 IDP leagues.

Seahawks DE Carlos Dunlap (foot) is active for today's game against Washington. He managed only a single limited practice Friday, though, and saw his snaps limited the last time he played through this foot issue 2 weeks ago. There's upside to Dunlap's matchup, but he's a risky IDP option. He's more worth a shot in sack-heavy scoring than in formats that lean toward tackle scoring.

Seahawks DE Carlos Dunlap (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against Washington. He did, at least, progress to a limited practice Friday for the 1st time since sustaining the injury in Week 12. But Dunlap missed last week's game and played just 41% of the snaps the week before while dealing with the issue. He's not a safe bet even if active in this game, though there will be upside to the matchup if he's active. We'll check his status Sunday morning.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that DE Carlos Dunlap (foot) and CB Quinton Dunbar (knee) will practice this week "with a plan on playing Sunday," according to ESPN's Brady Henderson. The decision on whether either defensive starter will return to action against Washington on Sunday figures to come at the end of the week. So don't rely too heavily on either in your Week 15 IDP plans.

Seahawks DE Carlos Dunlap (foot) is inactive for today's game against the Jets. His absence leaves more snaps for Benson Mayowa, L.J. Collier and Rasheem Green.

Seahawks DE Carlos Dunlap is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. Dunlap missed every practice for the 2nd straight week with his foot injury. He played just 41% of the snaps against the Giants last Sunday, in the same situation, and went without a QB hit for the 1st time since arriving via trade. Dunlap makes for a high-risk option this Sunday -- albeit in an upside matchup.

Seahawks DE Carlos Dunlap (foot) is active for today's game against the Giants. He's a strong option for IDP lineups in a high-upside matchup.

Seahawks CB Tre Flowers (hamstring) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Giants. His absence would likely push CB D.J. Reed back into the starting lineup. Reed tallied 25 solo tackles over his 3 fill-in starts earlier this season. DE Carlos Dunlap (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game. We'll check his status Sunday.

The Bengals are trading DE Carlos Dunlap to the Seahawks, according to multiple reports. The move sends a disgruntled veteran whose playing time had fallen off to a defense badly in need of pass rush help. Dunlap remained a productive player last season. We'll see what kind of numbers in what should be greatly increased playing time with Seattle. COVID protocols will keep Dunlap from being available for Sunday's game against San Francisco, but he's worth stashing in IDP leagues for Week 9 and beyond. The Seahawks have already had their bye.

The Bengals placed DE Sam Hubbard on IR with his left elbow injury ahead of Sunday's loss to the Colts. That means Hubbard will also miss at least weeks 7 and 8. He'll be eligible to return after the Week 9 bye, though, if that elbow is ready. Cincinnati still played DE Carlos Dunlap for a season-low 44% of the snaps against Indy, even with Hubbard out. Dunlap isn't much of an IDP option at his current usage.

The Bengals have deemed DE Carlos Dunlap doubtful for Sunday's game against the Jaguars with the knee injury that kept him out last week. Dunlap's replacement, Carl Lawson, has already been ruled out for the game with a hamstring injury. The matchup gets even better for Leonard Fournette and Gardner Minshew.

The Bengals have ruled DE Carlos Dunlap out for Sunday's game against the Ravens. Dunlap started the week as a full participant but then left Thursday's workout early and missed Friday with a knee injury. It'll be his first missed game since 2012. We'll watch for further details on the injury.

Bengals starting DEs Carlos Dunlap and Sam Hubbard were both removed from the week's final injury report. Dunlap (hamstring) and Hubbard (ankle) each missed practice Thursday and put in limited participation Thursday. But each guy returned to a full practice Saturday. Use them as you normally would in IDP lineups. Cincinnati will miss OLB/DE Carl Lawson, who is doubtful with a hamstring injury.

Bengals DE Carlos Dunlap left in the 4th quarter of Sunday's blowout loss to the Bears with a chest injury. The team deemed him questionable to return, though the lopsided score left little reason to push him back onto the field. We'll keep an eye out for any further details and his participation this week. The lack of further info to this point suggests it's not a big deal.

Bengals DE Carlos Dunlap (concussion) is active for today's game against Minnesota.  His matchup with Vikings RT Phil Loadholt presents nice sack upside for your IDP league.

Bengals DE Carlos Dunlap is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings because of a concussion suffered late in last Sunday night's loss to Pittsburgh.  He missed the 1st 2 days of practice this week but returned to full participation on Friday.  Expect him to play against Minnesota and provide quality IDP numbers.

The Bengals announced Friday that DT Geno Atkins tore his right ACL in Thursday night's loss to the Dolphins.  That's a big blow to the Cincinnati defense, taking away arguably the league's best interior pass-rusher.  Atkins' pressure not only creates sacks for himself but flushes QBs out to the waiting arms of Bengals DEs.  We won't downgrade the team D or any individual Cincinnati defenders in our rest of the way rankings before seeing how the team responds.  But don't be surprised if the unit slips a bit.

Bengals DE Carlos Dunlap put in a full practice Monday and expects to be ready for Sunday's opener.  He conceded, though, that he needs this week to prepare.  "I missed the preseason so one of my things is get my conditioning up because those guys got the game reps I wasn’t able to get so I am getting my conditioning up, doing extra running as a team," he told the team website.  We're willing to take on that bit of risk to start the high-upside Dunlap against the Bears in Week 1.
