Christian Benford Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Bills HC Sean McDermott said Friday that WR Gabe Davis (knee) won't play Sunday against the Chiefs. That should mean a continued role increase for WR Khalil Shakir. But WR Trent Sherfield got an even bigger bump the past two games. He has played his two largest snap shares of the season -- 71% at Miami, 63% vs. Steelers -- in the game Davis left and then the playoff opener he missed. Sherfield didn't see a target against Pittsburgh, so he's only in range as a DFS flyer and for deeper fantasy formats. Shakir racked up 6-105 receiving in the regular-season finale but then drew just 3 targets against the Steelers. He presents intriguing upside but is also no lock for opportunities. The Bills will also go without CB Christian Benford and S Taylor Rapp.

The Bills have ruled S Micah Hyde (neck, stinger) and CB Christian Benford (hamstring) out for Monday night's game against the Broncos. The latter should mean full playing time for CB Rasul Douglas. The former Packer played 60% of snaps against the Bengals in his first action since arriving at the trade deadline. Taylor Rapp should step into a starter role in Hyde's absence. S Damar Hamlin might also be activated but would still operate as a reserve/special teamer.

Bills S Jordan Poyer (knee) is off the final injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Jaguars. That means he's ready to return after missing last week's game. CB Christian Benford (shoulder) is questionable after leaving Week 4 early. He was limited in practice all week.
