Kyle Van Noy Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

The Patriots are bringing back LB Kyle Van Noy on a 2-year deal worth "up to" $13.2 million, according to NFL Network's Mike Garofolo. Van Noy spent 3 full seasons and part of 2016 with the Patriots before signing with Miami last offseason. He delivered a career-high 6.5 sacks his last year in New England (2019). We'll see how all the roles settle out in an LB corps that differs significantly from that one. Van Noy has generally not been a high-level IDP option, though. Don't expect that to change in his age-30 season.

Dolphins LB Kyle Van Noy (hip) and LB Jerome Baker (knee) are active for today's game against the Patriots. Each is in play for IDP use.

Dolphins LB Kyle Van Noy (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots. He missed last week's game with the same injury. Van Noy progressed to 3 limited practices this week after getting on the field just once last week, so he's clearly at least closer to being ready. We'll check his status Sunday morning. LB Elandon Roberts (chest) is also questionable after missing last week's game. He looks unlikely to play. The absence of either would raise the IDP floor for Miami LB Jerome Baker.

Dolphins LB Kyle Van Noy (hip) and LB Elandon Roberts (chest) are inactive for today's game against the Chiefs. That raises the IDP floor for LB Jerome Baker, who has seen inconsistent playing time throughout the season. The matchup keeps him from being a strong option, but Baker now sits inside the top 40 of our Week 14 LB rankings.

Dolphins LB Kyle Van Noy (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Van Noy missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before putting in a limited workout Friday. He's a weak IDP bet for Week 14.

Dolphins LB Kyle Van Noy (hip) is active for today's game against the Broncos. Use him as you normally would in IDP lineups.

Dolphins LB Kyle Van Noy (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos. We'll check his status Sunday morning, but Van Noy returned to last week's game after suffering the injury and participated in the week's final 2 practices.

The Dolphins have activated LB Kyle Van Noy off the COVID list, which puts him back in line to play Sunday against the Chargers. We've got him back in the Week 10 LB rankings.

The Dolphins on Thursday placed LB Kyle Van Noy and DL Christian Wilkins on the COVID list. The team didn't announce whether the players tested positive or just had contact with someone who did. The timing challenges their availability for Sunday's game against the Chargers. We'll see whether Van Noy or Wilkins can make it back for game day, but you should plan as though they won't.

The Dolphins have ruled out LB Kyle Van Noy (groin) for today's game against the Jets. DE Shaq Lawson (shoulder) is active but not a strong IDP option.

Dolphins LB Kyle Van Noy (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. Van Noy missed Wednesday's practice but returned for limited workouts Thursday and Friday. We'll check his status Sunday morning. DE Shaq Lawson (shoulder) is also questionable. He put in limited practices all week.

The Dolphins will be signing LB Kyle Van Noy to a 4-year, $51 million deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Van Noy produced LB3-level numbers his first 2 years in New England before slipping last season. His fantasy points per game dipped each of the past 2 seasons, though. Van Noy turns 29 this month and should still be in his prime. In Miami, he'll play under HC Brian Flores, who served as New England's LBs coach in Van Noy's first 2 Patriots campaigns. Expect Van Noy to play full-time snaps for the Dolphins and continue to see plenty of use as a blitzer.

Patriots LB Kyle Van Noy is a surprise inactive for tonight's game against the Steelers. Van Noy didn't show up on the injury report at all this week and had been working with the starters. We'll see what's up with this situation and how the LB playing time breaks down for the Pats against Pittsburgh.

Update: It appears Van Noy is missing the game because his wife is giving birth.

Patriots LB Kyle Van Noy is active for today's game against the Jets after missing the past 3 contests with a calf injury. He's tough to trust in that 1st game back, however, with his outlook further muddied by the 12-degree weather in Foxborough. IDP owners should try to go in a different direction.

11:12am EST 12/24/17

Patriots LB Kyle Van Noy (calf) is inactive for today's game against the Bills. Elandon Roberts was the only New England LB to play at least 50% of the snaps with Van Noy out last week. Roberts is your best bet if you need/want a Patriots LB. This is not a situation to bet heavily on in your IDP lineup this week, though.
