Jake Funk 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.

Colts RB Evan Hull will miss the rest of the season with a torn meniscus, insider Jordan Schultz reports. Go ahead and drop the rookie in all redraft leagues. The Colts are down to RBs Zack Moss, Deon Jackson, and Jake Funk for now. RB Jonathan Taylor is eligible to come off IR after Week 4.

Rams HC Sean McVay said Friday that RB Cam Akers (Achilles) is not likely to play vs. the Ravens this weekend. Akers wasn't a realistic fantasy option this week anyway, but his absence just makes RB Sony Michel an even bigger lock to dominate backfield work. Jake Funk will be Los Angeles' #2 RB.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (ribs) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Bucs. Sony Michel will step in as Los Angeles’ lead back, with Jake Funk as the #2 RB. The matchup vs. a stout Tampa run defense leaves Michel as just a RB3 in the Week 3 rankings.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson injured his thumb in Monday's practice. Both NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and ESPN's Adam Schefter report that it's a minor sprain. Schefter adds that Henderson is expected to be ready for Week 1. It's still not an ideal development for a guy who has had trouble staying healthy -- and is now being counted on in an expanded role. We'll keep you updated on Henderson's status. There's no clear-cut handcuff to Henderson right now after RB Jake Funk started over RB Xavier Jones in the 2nd preseason game. The Rams could still add to the backfield before the start of the season.
