Jeremy Chinn 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 Panthers have ruled S Vonn Bell and S Xavier Woods out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Woods comes as no surprise, as he's dealing with a multi-week hamstring injury. Bell suffered a quad injury Thursday that kept him out of Friday's practice. Sam Franklin has been starting in Woods' spot and carries tackle upside into a matchup with speedy Miami. We'll see who fills in for Bell. IDP managers would love to get full playing time for Jeremy Chinn, but he played a season-low 30% of the snaps in Week 5, despite injuries at safety and LB. Fifth-round rookie Jammie Robinson is the other SS candidate. You can stash Chinn for now in case he gets the nod, or you could simply avoid the situation (beyond Franklin). We'll watch for more details.

Panthers S Jeremy Chinn (hamstring) is active for the 1st time since suffering his injury back in Week 4. We don't yet know just how much he'll play, but there's room for him to jump back into a full-time role with several other safeties missing. CB Jaycee Horn (foot) is also active.

The Panther have activated S Jeremy Chinn (hamstring). That doesn't necessarily mean he'll play Sunday against the Ravens. Interim HC Steve Wilks on Friday called Chinn a game-time decision. But this at least makes it possible for the safety to return to the lineup. Even if he plays Sunday, Chinn might find his role limited. Wilks called his return from injury a "work in progress." That said, the team is down S Juston Burris and will likely miss S Myles Hartsfield. So they might need to play Chinn full time -- or at least find added motivation to do so. Chinn will be a risk-reward option for IDP lineups, barring clear statements on his intended usage.

Panthers interim HC Steve Wilks called S Jeremy Chinn "a work in progress" in his return from a hamstring injury and deemed the safety a game-time decision for Sunday against the Ravens, according to That makes Chinn risky even if active, but we'll watch his status Sunday. If Chinn sits again, he won't be replaced by S Juston Burris (out: illness, concussion) and probably not by S Myles Hartsfield either (doubtful: ankle). Carolina has also ruled DT Matt Ioannidis (calf) out. CB Jaycee Horn (foot) is questionable but finished the week with 2 full practices.

The Panthers did not activate S Jeremy Chinn (hamstring) from IR ahead of tonight's game against the Falcons. That means another start for Myles Hartsfield, who has been added to our Week 10 IDP rankings. Chinn looks like he's on track to be ready for Week 11.

The Panthers on Tuesday designated S Jeremy Chinn (hamstring) to return from IR, and he practiced with the team. Designating him to return opens a 21-day window for getting Chinn back on the active roster, so the team will still need to make that move before he can play Thursday night against the Falcons. Chinn also doesn't appear on the injury report this week because he's not yet back on the active roster. We'll watch to see whether he's ready for Thursday night.

The Panthers are not activating S Jeremy Chinn (hamstring) ahead of today's game at Cincinnati. Interim HC Steve Wilks said they hope to get him back onto the field ahead of Thursday night's game against the Falcons. Myles Hartsfield should be in line for another start and has climbed our Week 9 IDP rankings.

The Panthers on Wednesday placed S Jeremy Chinn on IR with the the hamstring injury that knocked him out in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game. S Myles Hartsfield and S Sean Chandler each saw playing-time boosts against the Cardinals. Hartsfield played 95% of snaps, though, and looks like the better fill-in bet. The other starting safety, Xavier Woods, missed Wednesday's practice with his own hamstring injury. We'll see about his status later in the week.

Panthers S Jeremy Chinn left Sunday's loss to the Cardinals with a hamstring injury. We'll see about his status for Week 5 and beyond.

Panthers S Jeremy Chinn is inactive for today's game against the Buccaneers. He sustained an ankle injury in Saturday's practice. DT Derrick Brown is active after arriving questionable with an elbow issue.
