Jalen Ramsey 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.

Dolphins S Jevon Holland (knees), CB Jalen Ramsey (knee), and CB Xavien Howard (hip, thumb) are active for today's game against the Ravens. Holland missed the past four games with the knee troubles and remained limited in practice this week. There's likely some risk of re-injury, but Miami also appears to have been cautious in bringing him back. Holland's ultimately worth using as planned in most IDP cases. Ramsey and Howard are no more than low-level IDP possibilities.

Dolphins S Jevon Holland (concussion) and CB Xavien Howard (groin) are inactive for today's game against the Patriots. That leaves Miami without half of its top four in the secondary. CB Jalen Ramsey is active, however, for the first time this season.

The Dolphins expect to have CB Jalen Ramsey in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Patriots, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That will make for a much quicker return than initially expected following his meniscus repair. Original reports had Ramsey expected to be out until December. It's tough to know whether the veteran corner will be ready for full playing time right away, as well as just how much impact he'll have on the Miami defense. But his return can only help a defense that ranks 24th in pass DVOA so far. Don't bet on Ramsey being an IDP factor right away, but he could get into deeper lineups after the Week 10 bye.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Dolphins CB Jalen Ramsey is "far ahead of schedule" in recovering from his August knee surgery. Ramsey could reportedly start practicing as early as this coming week. Pelissero says the team plans to "ramp him up gradually." But getting onto the field anytime soon would put Ramsey on track to beat his initial return expectation by a lot. We'll watch for more on his return.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport updated the reports on Dolphins CB Jalen Ramsey's left knee injury. He says Ramsey is expected to get a full meniscus repair, which would keep him out until December "if all goes well." This will be confirmed (or altered) at his Friday surgery. If you play in an IDP league where CBs are relevant, then you should treat Ramsey as though he's not playing this season. We've knocked his projection down to three games in our IDP rankings. Cam Smith and Kader Kohou look like candidates to compete for the vacated starting role opposite Xavien Howard.

Update: Friday's surgery confirmed this path. Ramsey had the full repair and is expected to be out until December, according to Rapoport.

Dolphins CB Jalen Ramsey left the field late in Thursday's practice with a left knee injury. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Ramsey will have surgery on the knee and is expected to "miss the start of the regular season." The corner's ACL is reportedly "intact," however. We'll watch for more on just how long Ramsey will be out.

Update: NFL Network reports that Ramsey is expected to miss at least 6-8 weeks for the meniscus injury. "Doctors will have to determine whether the ligament can be repaired or must be removed, which would increase the cornerback's recovery timeline," the report says.

The Rams are trading CB Jalen Ramsey to the Dolphins for a third-round pick in this year's NFL Draft and TE Hunter Long. L.A. is obviously clearing salary amid what looks like a necessary rebuild. Ramsey is also coming off a down season that included allowing a career-high 98.6 passer rating in coverage, according to Pro Football Focus. But he wasn't terrible and doesn't turn 29 until late October. So there's room to bounce back. And getting Ramsey can only help a Miami defense that missed CB Byron Jones for all of last season after Achilles' tendon surgery. Long is the sneaky fantasy move here. It's not great that he caught just one pass across two seasons since arriving as a third-round pick. But the current Miami regime didn't draft him. And if Long were just a throw-in here, we'd bet on the Rams targeting a different position. The team still has TEs Tyler Higbee and Brycen Hopkins under contract. We're guessing L.A. views Long as an upside player. He delivered an elite-level 8.61 Relative Athletic Score as a draft prospect. That followed 89 catches and 14.6 yards per reception across three seasons at Boston College. Long looks worth stashing in dynasty leagues over the two years left on his rookie contract. Higbee's deal runs out after 2023.

After announcing Friday that CB Jalen Ramsey would start training camp on the PUP, the Rams changed their mind Sunday. “We ended up not putting Ramsey on the PUP as a result of doctors cleared him in a limited fashion that enables him to participate in a lot of the jog throughs — the above the neck stuff, and to be able to have him out here with his teammates with all the different things that we ask of him,” HC Sean McVay said Sunday, per Pro Football Talk. That sounds like Ramsey isn't quite all the way back from his June shoulder surgery. But he's likely close enough that we can assume he'll be ready for the regular-season opener.

The Rams have placed CB Jalen Ramsey on the PUP list to open training camp. He had shoulder surgery in June, so the camp-opening inactivity doesn't come as a surprise. it was reported at the time the team expected Ramsey to be ready for the regular season. We'll see whether that holds true.

Rams CB Jalen Ramsey had surgery Tuesday on his left shoulder. NFL Network's Ian Rapport reports that Ramsey played through tears in both shoulders last season. The team expects Ramsey to be ready for the regular season, but we'll see how long he's out of action. This seems odd timing for the operation, just a little more than a month away from the start of training camp.

The Rams have activated CB Jalen Ramsey from the COVID list, making him eligible to play Tuesday against the Seahawks. Ramsey has been in our Week 15 DB rankings and might carry even more upside if Tyler Lockett misses the game. (He's no lock to make it off the COVID list before the game.) No Lockett would likely mean even more targets for D.K. Metcalf, whom Ramsey figures to shadow as much as possible.

The Rams have placed CB Jalen Ramsey on the COVID list, which means he'll miss the Monday night matchup with Arizona. That leaves L.A. without its lead cover man and can only enhance the matchup for Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins -- as well as the rest of the pass-catchers. It's not clear what the plan will be at corner, where the Rams already had to place slot CB Dont'e Deayon on the COVID list. David Long figures to join Darious Williams in the starting lineup. The #3 spot appears up in the air. Williams and Long are the only 2 CBs on the active roster on the team website. The next man up could be an extra safety or former Giants DB Grant Haley (listed as a "DB").

New Rams OLB Von Miller will miss his 1st game with the new team. He's inactive with the ankle injury that also cost him his final game in Denver. LB Ernest Jones (illness) and CB Jalen Ramsey (knee) are active, however, after hitting the day questionable.

Rams LB Ernest Jones (illness), CB Jalen Ramsey (knee) and OLB Von Miller (ankle) are questionable for Sunday night's game against the Titans. HC Sean McVay said Friday that he expects Jones and Ramsey to play, according to the team's website. Miller, on the other hand, will be a game-time decision. The Sunday night kickoff means most IDP lineups can't wait for that decision.

Rams CB Jalen Ramsey (illness) and S Jordan Fuller (knee) are active for today's game against the Texans.

Rams CB Jalen Ramsey and S Jordan Fuller are questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans. Ramsey missed Thursday and Friday practices with an illness. We'd bet on him being ready for the game. Fuller sat out Wednesday's and Thursday's workouts completely with a knee issue but return for a full Friday practice. We'll check the status for both Sunday morning.
