Duke Johnson 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.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Bills are releasing RB Duke Johnson. This comes as no shock, with Devin Singletary, James Cook and Zack Moss emerging as the clear top 3 in the backfield. Schefter adds that Buffalo is interested in stashing Johnson on the practice squad if he doesn't sign elsewhere.

Bills beat writer Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News doesn’t expect RB Duke Johnson to make the final roster. Skurski’s expectation is that Devin Singletary, James Cook, Zack Moss and RB/ST ace Taiwan Jones will make the team. Johnson, 28, signed a 1-year deal this offseason with only $377K guaranteed.

The Bills reached a 1-year deal with RB Duke Johnson, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Buffalo tried to sign RB J.D. McKissic last week before he opted to return to Washington, so the team is clearly looking to add depth behind RBs Devin Singletary and Zack Moss. Johnson spent much of last year unsigned or on Miami's practice squad. But he flashed late with 312 yards and 3 TDs on 4.7 yards per carry over the final 4 games of the season. Johnson turns 29 in September and probably isn't a candidate for lead duties in Buffalo. But he could siphon touches from Singletary.

Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed is a healthy scratch for tonight's game vs. the Saints. Miami will roll with RBs Duke Johnson, Myles Gaskin and Phillip Lindsay.

Dolphins RBs Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed are active for today’s game vs. the Jets. Both guys came off the COVID list on Friday. Gaskin had been operating as Miami's clear lead back, averaging 17.6 carries and 3.2 targets over his last 5 games. He’s an upside RB2 vs. the Jets’ league-worst RB defense. RB Duke Johnson is also active for Miami. RB Malcolm Brown remains on IR.

Dolphins RB Phillip Lindsay has joined teammates Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed on the COVID list. All 3 are vaccinated, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, so they have a chance to be cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Jets. Miami has RBs Duke Johnson and Gerrid Doaks on the practice squad, with RB Malcolm Brown still on IR with the quad injury he suffered back in Week 7.

Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed has joined teammate Myles Gaskin on the COVID list. We'll see if they can get cleared for Miami's next game in Week 15 vs. the Jets. The Dolphins currently have Phillip Lindsay on the active roster, Duke Johnson and Gerrid Doaks on the practice squad and Malcolm Brown on IR.

Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin tested positive for COVID, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Gaskin is vaccinated, so there's a chance he's cleared in time for Miami's Week 15 game vs. the Jets. If not, the Dolphins would be down to RBs Phillip Lindsay and Salvon Ahmed on the active roster. RBs Duke Johnson and Gerrid Doaks are on the practice squad, while RB Malcolm Brown (quad) is eligible to come off IR

Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Jets. RB Duke Johnson, who was promoted from the practice squad on Saturday, is active and will serve as the #2 behind Myles Gaskin. Gaskin should handle the vast majority of the backfield work.

Dolphins RB Duke Johnson has been promoted to the active roster. He'll presumably be active for tomorrow's game vs. the Jets, alongside RBs Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed. We wouldn't expect Johnson to steal more than a few touches from Gaskin.

The Dolphins have signed RB Duke Johnson to their practice squad. The 28-year-old spent a couple of weeks on Jacksonville's practice squad in September but has otherwise been unemployed since being released by the Texans in February. There's opportunity in after RB Malcolm Brown was placed on IR, but Johnson is only worth adding in the deepest of fantasy leagues right now. We'll see if he gets promoted to the active roster.

After watching 3 more RBs get banged up in Sunday's victory at Philadelphia, the 49ers are having free agents Duke Johnson and Lamar Miller in for visits this week, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. We'll see whether anyone signs and what the statuses are for the Niners' existing stable. San Francisco already has Kerryon Johnson on the practice squad as well.

The Jaguars released RB Duke Johnson from their practice squad. HC Urban Meyer is evidently happy with James Robinson and old pal Carlos Hyde in the backfield.

The Jaguars are signing RB Duke Johnson to their practice squad, according to agent Drew Rosenhaus. That means any team could still sign Johnson at any point. Of course, that's also been true throughout this offseason. We'll see if Johnson ever returns to fantasy relevance. Landing on a practice squad at least gets him on the deep-league radar. And he could be a Carlos Hyde or James Robinson injury away from joining the active roster.

The forecast for today's Bengals-Browns game calls for 1-3 inches of snow and winds of 10-20 mph. We start to worry about the passing games when winds get over 15 mph, so this is a slight concern. Both teams figured to go run-heavy anyway, and the weather will only push them farther in that direction.
