Josh Reynolds 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 Broncos signed WR Josh Reynolds to a two-year, $14 million deal, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Reynolds ranked third among Lions last year in both receiving yards (608) and TDs (5), fending off Jameson Williams for the No. 2 WR job. He's developed into a reliable receiver. But he's also never topped 618 yards across his seven NFL seasons. Reynolds should find plenty of snaps for a Broncos team with Marvin Mims, Tim Patrick, Brandon Johnson, and Phillip Dorsett behind No. 1 WR Courtland Sutton. But he's not an exciting fantasy option. If Reynolds is the most significant WR addition Denver makes this offseason, Mims will have every chance to earn a major role in his second season.

Lions WR Jameson Williams (ankle, illness) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Vikings. We’ll see if he can make it back for next week’s Wild Card game. Williams’ absence will free up some snaps for WRs Josh Reynolds, Kalif Raymond, and Donovan Peoples-Jones.

Lions WR Josh Reynolds (back) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Broncos. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and limited again in Friday’s practice but got the green light for this one. Reynolds is only in play in the DFS Saturday slate.

Lions WR Josh Reynolds (back) is questionable for Saturday night’s game vs. the Broncos. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and limited again in Friday’s practice. Reynolds’ absence could mean a snap boost for WR Jameson Williams, but Williams would still only be in play in DFS tournaments.

The Browns traded WR Donovan Peoples-Jones to the Lions in exchange for a sixth-round pick. Peoples-Jones turned in a promising 2022 season, catching 61 of 96 targets for 839 yards and three TDs. But he's been mostly invisible so far this year, totaling just eight receptions on 18 targets. He joins a Lions offense still searching for a consistent No. 2 WR behind Amon-Ra St. Brown. WR Josh Reynolds has been good in spurts this year, but WR Jameson Williams has continued to disappoint. We'll see what kind of role Peoples-Jones can carve out, but he's unlikely to emerge as a reliable fantasy option this season. The 24-year-old is set to hit free agency in March. The Browns, meanwhile, are left with WRs Marquise Goodwin, Cedric Tillman, and David Bell behind Amari Cooper and Elijah Moore.

Lions WR Josh Reynolds hauled 4 of 5 targets for 76 yards and a TD in Week 5’s win vs. the Panthers. Rookie TE Sam LaPorta delivered quality production as well, logging 47 receiving yards and 2 TDs on 3 catches in the contest. Fantasy managers excited for the return of WR Jameson Williams from suspension don’t have a lot to celebrate (2 catches, 2 yards). Still, this Lions’ passing game is chock full of reliable players, even without WR Amon-Ra St. Brown in the lineup. Hopefully, the Lions will have their full complement of weapons back next week vs. the Buccaneers.

Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown (abdomen) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Panthers. He didn't practice all week and was listed as doubtful, so he wasn’t particularly close to playing. We’ll see if he can make it back for Week 6. St. Brown’s absence leaves 26.7% of Detroit’s targets up for grabs. Josh Reynolds is the best bet to lead Lions WRs in targets today, with Kalif Raymond, Jameson Williams, and Marvin Jones behind him. TE Sam LaPorta should also benefit from St. Brown’s absence. But we’re expecting a run-heavy attack from the Lions today against a leaky Panthers run defense.

Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown (abdomen) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Panthers. He didn't practice all week and obviously needs to be on fantasy benches. His absence would leave Detroit's WR corps to Josh Reynolds, Jameson Williams, Kalif Raymond, and Marvin Jones. Reynolds (groin) and Williams (not injury related) are listed as questionable for Week 5 but should play after getting in full practices on Friday. St. Brown's absence figures to mean an even more run-heavy game plan for Detroit -- and potentially a target boost for TE Sam LaPorta.

Lions WR Josh Reynolds (groin) is active for today’s game vs. the Falcons. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, so we’re not expecting the groin to be an issue today.

Lions WR Josh Reynolds (groin) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Falcons. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, so we'd be surprised if he didn't play on Sunday. We'll get Detroit's inactives around 11:30 am ET.

Lions WR Josh Reynolds followed up a 4-80-0 line in the opener with five catches for 66 yards and two TDs in the Week 2 overtime loss to Seattle. His six targets tied for third on the team and were a 17.1% share. Reynolds is an every-down player with downfield ability in a strong offense. You could do worse as a WR4 in deeper fantasy leagues – at least until WR Jameson Williams’ six-game suspension is over.

Lions writer Jeff Risdon doesn’t believe WR Marvin Jones is a roster “lock.” Behind Amon-Ra St. Brown and Jameson Williams, Risdon names Kalif Raymond and Josh Reynolds as safe bets to make the team. Jones, 33, signed a one-year deal worth $3 million (all guaranteed) in March. We expect him to make the final roster, but he’s not someone we’re circling on cheat sheets as a late-round pick. Jones underwhelmed with 46-529-3 in 16 games with Jacksonville last season.

Lions WR Jameson Williams is one of five players to be suspended for violating the NFL's gambling policy. Williams, along with Lions WR Stanley Berryhill, have been suspended six games. Lions WR Quintez Cephus, Lions S C.J. Moore, and Commanders DE Shaka Toney are suspended indefinitely. We'll see if Williams appeals this ruling, but fantasy drafters should work under the assumption that he'll miss the first six games of the 2023 season. Williams, of course, appeared in just six games as a rookie last year after tearing an ACL in January of 2022. This suspension will make him tough to roster in standard redraft fantasy leagues and just a late-round option in best ball. Williams' absence leaves Amon-Ra St. Brown, Marvin Jones, Josh Reynolds, and Kalif Raymond as Detroit's top 4 WRs. Jones and Reynolds pick up a bit more fantasy appeal with this news.

Update: The Lions released WR Quintez Cephus and S C.J. Moore.

The Lions signed WR Marvin Jones to a 1-year, $3 million deal. It's a reunion after Jones spent 2016-2020 in Detroit. He averaged 859 yards and 7.2 TDs across those 5 seasons but is coming off a disappointing 46-529-3 line in Jacksonville this past year. Jones ranked 79th in yards per route run and 87th in Pro Football Focus receiving grade among 96 qualifying WRs. The 33-year-old will duke it out with Josh Reynolds and Kalif Raymond for snaps behind Amon-Ra St. Brown and Jameson Williams in Detroit. Jones might provide a few spike weeks for best-ball squads if he wins the #3 WR job. But he's unlikely to be a reliable option in lineup-setting fantasy leagues.

Lions rookie WR Jameson Williams scored his 1st NFL TD from 41 yards out in Sunday's win over the Vikings. It was his only catch among 2 targets, so we wouldn't go adding Williams to fantasy football rosters off this performance. WR Josh Reynolds and WR D.J. Chark claimed the team's other 2 TD receptions. Reynolds totaled 5 catches for 51 yards among 6 targets.

Lions WR Josh Reynolds (back) is active for today's game against the Bills. It'll mark the 1st time he's played since Week 8, so it's tough to know how big a role he'll fill. Reynolds managed only limited practices the past 2 days.

Lions WR Josh Reynolds (back) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Bills. He got in limited practices on Tuesday and Wednesday. Out since Week 8, Reynolds will only be in play in Thanksgiving DFS contests if he's active tomorrow.

The Lions have downgraded WR Josh Reynolds (back) to out for Sunday's game against the Giants. We were already betting Reynolds wouldn't be active, so this change doesn't alter anyone's fantasy football outlook for Week 11.
