Denzel Perryman Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

Texans LB Blake Cashman (hamstring) finished the week with a full Friday practice and carries no injury designation into Sunday's game against the Titans. That says Cashman's ready to return to the lineup. LB Denzel Perryman (ankle) similarly returned to full practice Friday and doesn't appear on the final injury report. Perryman hasn't missed any time with his injury, though. Cashman missed the past two games. The last time Cashman, Perryman, and Christian Harris played a full game together, Cashman played every snap, Perryman played 65%, and Harris played 60%. It was Harris edging Perryman in playing time each of the past three weeks, though, starting with the game Cashman left early. We haven't seen word from Houston coaches about the LB plan for this week, so we can only assume Cashman will reclaim the corps lead and Harris will follow. The uncertainty plus a Titans offense that has supplied the fifth-fewest fantasy points to LBs, though, has us wary of putting any Texans LB too high in the Week 17 rankings.

Houston has ruled out LB Blake Cashman (hamstring) for the second straight game. LB Denzel Perryman (Achilles') is questionable. He managed limited practices all week, though, and Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 in Houston reports that Perryman's "trending toward being active." Cashman's absence and Perryman's question mark have moved LB Christian Harris up our Week 16 LB rankings. Harris has produced solid numbers lately, including 7 solo tackles in three of his past four games -- with two lines of 10+ total tackles in that span. Cleveland presents a positive scoring matchup this week. The Browns have yielded the third-most fantasy points per game to LBs for the season and remain top-8 in that category even over QB Joe Flacco's three weeks as starter.

The Texans expect LB Blake Cashman to miss at least this week's game against the Titans after he strained a hamstring in Week 14, according to Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 in Houston. That should leave Christian Harris and Denzel Perryman as the top two LBs in playing time. Neither makes for an exciting IDP play, but Harris should be the better bet after leading Perryman in playing time and production against the Jets last Sunday. Houston also expects to miss CB Tavierre Thomas (hamstring) for multiple games. He and Cashman are droppable in most redraft IDP leagues.

The NFL has suspended Texans LB Denzel Perryman for three games over repeated violations of the player-safety rules, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Perryman incurred his seventh foul of the season Sunday for using his helmet in delivering a hit. This is particularly noteworthy timing because Perryman had also just reclaimed the playing-time lead among Houston LBs in that game, at 86%. Christian Harris followed at 64%, with Blake Cashman (55%) third. Harris would seem to be the best bet to lead playing time over the next few games. But it's worth remembering that he already got demoted to a reserve role after starting the season's first four games. We'll cautiously lean Harris, then Cashman for Week 11. But the best bet among Houston's LB corps is to not invest too heavily in anyone. Rookie Henry To'oTo'o might re-enter the mix as well, but he's dealing with an injury and recently got demoted after his own starting turn. We'll also see whether the Perryman suspension holds up through a likely appeal.

Texans LB Denzel Perryman is inactive for today's game against the Saints. He put in full practices all week and carried no injury designation into Sunday after returning last week from a hand injury. So this looks like a healthy scratch. That combines with Perryman's decreased playing time last week to signal the team is turning to rookie Henry To'oTo'o and Blake Cashman as the LB leaders. Perryman is droppable in your IDP league.

Texans LB Denzel Perryman (hand) put in a full practice Wednesday. He missed the past two games but appears to be on track to play this week against the Falcons. Perryman should return to most IDP lineups if active.

Texans LB Denzel Perryman missed Wednesday's practice with a hand injury. We're not concerned yet. Perryman played every snap of Sunday's loss to the Colts. But we'll track his status throughout the week. S Jalen Pitre remained out of practice as well following his Week 1 lung bruise. Pitre missed Week 2. We'll see about his status for Sunday.

The Texans are releasing LB Christian Kirksey, who played a full-time role and served as a captain for last year's team. In his place, LB Denzel Perryman has been working with Christian Harris as the top two LBs. Perryman has also worn the green dot on his helmet in preseason games, which means he's conveying play calls from the coordinator to the huddle. That points to a full-time -- or at least nearly -- role and big tackle upside for Perryman. We've moved Perryman up our IDP rankings (and removed Kirksey).

Texans LB Christian Kirksey has missed several recent days with a hamstring injury, according to Aaron Wilson of KPRC2 in Houston. Rookie Henry To'oTo'o has reportedly filled in for Kirksey in the starting lineup. The team interestingly listed Denzel Perryman and Blake Cashman as starting LBs alongside Christian Harris on the initial "unofficial" depth chart. That could mean nothing, of course. And Wilson reports that Kirksey is expected to reclaim his post when ready. We consider Harris to be the only lineup lock at this point. Harris sits highest among the group in our IDP rankings.

The Raiders confirmed Tuesday that they'll shut LB Denzel Perryman for the final 2 games after he dislocated his left shoulder in Saturday night's loss at Pittsburgh. Undrafted rookie Luke Masterson looks like the best bet to lead Vegas LBs in playing time after seeing 84% playing time against the Steelers. Masterson has delivered 10+ tackles in 2 straight contests, so he'll carry tackle upside Sunday against the 49ers.

The Raiders might not have EDGE Chandler Jones or LB Denzel Perryman in the lineup any more this season. Jones left Saturday night's loss to the Steelers with an elbow injury that found him carted from the sideline to the locker room. LB Denzel Perryman dislocated his left shoulder in the game. HC Josh McDaniels told reporters Monday that each player might miss the rest of the season, according to The Athletic's Tashan Reed. The Raiders are still not yet officially eliminated from the playoffs, but that seems likely to happen in Week 17. Barring some shift in the diagnosis for either player, we'd bet surprised to see either back on the field this season.

Raiders LB Denzel Perryman (hip) is active for today's game against the Patriots. Use him as planned in your IDP lineups.

Raiders LB Denzel Perryman (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots after being limited in practice all week. Perryman played every snap of last Thursday's game against the Rams, his 1st time doing so all year. So we'd guess he'll play but will keep an eye out for status updates.

Raiders LB Denzel Perryman (wrist) is active for today's game against the Chargers. Use him as planned in IDP lineups.

Raiders LB Denzel Perryman suffered a wrist injury in Thursday's practice that has him questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers. He did still manage a limited practice Friday, so we'd guess Perryman is leaning toward playing. But we'll have to watch his status leading up to Sunday's kickoffs. If Perryman sits, then Jayon Brown would be the favorite to lead Raiders LBs in playing time.
