Most Recent Shark Bites

The forecast for tonight's Colts-49ers game calls for a 100% chance of rain with winds of 20-30 mph. That's ugly -- and certainly enough to impact the passing and kicking games. We'd try to avoid both of these passing games outside of 49ers WR Deebo Samuel and Colts WR Michael Pittman. You should also stay away from both Ks.

The Colts on Saturday placed K Rodrigo Blankenship on IR for his hip injury. That means Blankenship will miss at least the next 3 games. Indy also elevated K Michael Badgley from the practice squad. He'll handle kicking duties Sunday against the Texans.

Colts K Rodrigo Blankenship (hip) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Texans. Michael Badgley will kick for Indianapolis in that one and is a fine Week 6 fantasy fill in. The Colts are sporting a big 27-point implied total.

The Titans released K Mike Badgley. He missed an XP and his only FG attempt in the Week 1 loss to the Cardinals. We'll see who Tennessee signs to kick this week.

The Titans placed K Sam Ficken (groin) on IR, knocking him out for at least the first 3 games of the season. Michael Badgley will kick in his place. He's a viable Week 1 fantasy option in a likely shootout vs. the Cardinals.

Titans K Sam Ficken (groin) was added to the injury report on Friday and is questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Cardinals. Tennessee signed K Michael Badgley, so there must be real concern about Ficken's availability. Avoid the situation in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

The Chargers released K Michael Badgley. That leaves K Tristan Vizcaino atop the depth chart for now. We'll see if L.A. adds any competition. Vizcaino has just 3 career NFL FG attempts.

The Chargers are retaining K Mike Badgley with a 1-year deal, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Badgley ranked 10th in the league in FG attempts but tied for just 17th in FGs converted. His 72.7% success rate marked a 2nd straight year of decline in that category. The new contract makes Badgley worth selecting in FFPC best-ball drafts, but don't consider him a sure bet to last the season.

Chargers K Mike Badgley (groin) is inactive for today’s game against the Titans. Chase McLaughin kicks again for L.A.

Chargers K Mike Badgley (groin) put in full practices on Thursday and Friday but is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Titans. It’s unclear if he’s ready to make his 2019 debut on Sunday, but you should avoid this situation in Week 7 fantasy lineups. The Chargers are sporting a low 19.5-point implied total this week.

The Chargers have signed K Chase McLaughlin. K Mike Badgley is expected to miss "a couple [more] weeks" after suffering a setback with his groin injury, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. So L.A. will turn to McLaughlin, an undrafted rookie who connected on 44 of 59 FG attempts (74.6%) at Illinois over the past 3 seasons.

Chargers K Mike Badgley (groin) is out for Sunday’s game against Miami. Ty Long kicks again for the Bolts. He’s made 4 of 6 FGs and all 6 of his XP attempts through 3 games.

Chargers K Mike Badgley (groin) is inactive for today’s game against the Texans. Ty Long kicks for L.A. again, despite missing 2 FGs last week.

Chargers K Mike Badgley (groin) has been downgraded to doubtful for Sunday's game against the Texans. So it looks like Ty Long will kick again for L.A. Avoid the situation in fantasy lineups.

Chargers K Mike Badgley (groin) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Texans. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, so he should return for this one. But we’d make Badgley get through a game healthy before using him in fantasy lineups.

Chargers K Mike Badgley (groin) is inactive for today’s game against the Lions. Ty Long will handle kicking duties again after connecting on 1 FG and 3 XPs in the opener.

Chargers K Michael Badgley (groin) won't play against the Lions today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Badgley is expected back for Week 3, but Ty Long will kick again for the Chargers today.

Chargers K Mike Badgley (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Lions after a limited week of practice. Look elsewhere for your Week 2 fantasy K.

Chargers K Michael Badgley (groin) is inactive for today’s game against the Colts. Punter Ty Long will handle kicking duties.

Chargers K Michael Badgley (groin) wont play against the Colts today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Punter Ty Long will handle kicking duties, but you should avoid the situation in Week 1 fantasy lineups.
