Divine Deablo 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.

The Raiders have ruled LB Divine Deablo (ankle) and LB Luke Masterson (concussion) out for Sunday's game against the Giants. That removes a starter and the guy who would have filled in for him. LB Robert Spillane is also questionable with a hand injury. He managed limited practices Thursday and Friday, though, after missing Wednesday. We haven't seen an indication on how likely he is to play but would lean toward betting he'll be out there. Amari Burney -- a sixth-round rookie -- should be the next guy up. He played 45% of snaps in Monday night's loss to the Lions, which Deablo missed and Masterson left early. Curtis Bolton checks in behind Burney on the current depth chart. Spillane will be an easy start if he's active. Burney can be a low-end option for deeper leagues but would be risky. Week 8 marked his first NFL action. Check the Week 9 LB rankings for final positions before you set your IDP lineups.

The Raiders have ruled LB Divine Deablo (ankle) out for Monday night's game against the Lions. That should make Luke Masterson a full-time (or near full) player in Deablo's absence. Masterson stepped in for 62% playing time last week in the game Deablo left early. You can now find Masterson in our Week 8 LB rankings.

Raiders LB Divine Deablo left Sunday's loss to the Bears with a left ankle injury. We'll see about the severity heading into a Week 8 clash with the Lions.

The Raiders placed LB Divine Deablo on IR Monday with a forearm injury that knocked him out of Sunday's loss to the Jaguars. He'll now miss at least the next 4 games, making Deablo droppable in most IDP leagues. Blake Martinez filled in and led Raiders LBs in playing time at Jacksonville, collecting a game-high 11 tackles. He looks like a strong IDP option over the next month. LB Denzel Perryman checked in just behind Martinez with 10 tackles against the Jaguars but played just 75% of snaps vs. Martinez's 91%.

Raiders LB Divine Deablo left Sunday's loss to the Jaguars with a right-forearm injury. LB Blake Martinez took advantage, tallying a team-high 11 tackles (8 solo). We'll see about the severity of Deablo's injury and check out the snap counts for Martinez and LB Denzel Perryman (10 tackles) once they're released.

Raiders LB Divine Deablo (back, wrist) is active for today's game against the Jaguars. He played through a questionable tag last week as well for a full snap share and should be in most IDP lineups.

Raiders LB Divine Deablo (back, ankle) and S Johnathan Abram (illness) are active for today's game against the Saints. Deablo carries some risk after barely practicing this week, but both are in play for IDP use.

Raiders S Johnathan Abram (illness) and LB Divine Deablo (back, ankle) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints. Abram put in limited practices Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday. Deablo managed only a limited Friday and doesn't look like a great bet for fantasy football lineups. Denzel Perryman would likely lead LB playing time for the Raiders if Deablo can't go. LB Jason Brown is also ready to return after missing last week with a hamstring injury.

The Raiders have signed LB Blake Martinez to the active roster from the practice squad and reportedly plan to play him in Monday night's game against the Chiefs. LB Denzel Perryman also might be trending toward a return from the concussion that knocked him out of last week's game. Perryman put in a limited practice Thursday and then returned to full participation Friday. That all makes it tough to know how much LB Divine Deablo will play. He has been the full-timer in Perryman's absence. LB Jayon Brown might be trending toward getting out of the way because of a hamstring injury. After a limited Thursday practice, he missed Friday completely. We'll see about the status of the whole LB crew Saturday.

Raiders LB Denzel Perryman left Sunday's win over the Broncos early with a concussion. He had just returned from the ankle sprain that knocked him out of Week 1 early. We'll see how Perryman progresses through the league protocol. Divine Deablo worked as the corps leader with Perryman out before. Jayon Brown got playing time in the 70-80% range.

Raiders LB Denzel Perryman put in a limited practice Wednesday, the 1st time he has been on the field since leaving the opener with an ankle injury. We'll see just what the LB roles look like if Perryman's ready for game action. Divine Deablo has led the group in snaps the past 3 weeks. Pro Football Focus grades him just 68th, however, among 86 LBs with 45+ snaps played so far. LB Jason Brown checks in 70th, trailing Deablo as the #2 in playing time. Perryman was the every-down LB for last year's Raiders but has an uneven history of use across 3 franchises.

The Raiders have ruled LB Denzel Perryman (ankle) out for Sunday's game against the Titans. It'll be his 2nd straight missed game with the Week 1 injury. Perryman's absence should keep LB Divine Deablo in the lead role and elevate playing time again for LB Jayon Brown. They played 100% and 77% of defensive snaps, respectively, in Week 2. S Trevor Moehrig (hip) is questionable.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that Raiders LB Denzel Perryman is considered day-to-day with the ankle injury that knocked him out of Sunday's loss to the Chargers. That puts Perryman in play for Week 2. We'll watch his status through the practice week. Divine Deablo led Vegas LBs in playing time in Perryman's absence, with Jayon Brown trailing.
