Myles Garrett Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Browns DE Myles Garrett (shoulder), DT Sheldon Richardson (neck) and CB Terrance Mitchell (non-injury) are all active for tonight's game against the Steelers. Each entered the night questionable.

Browns DE Myles Garrett is questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers with a shoulder injury he apparently sustained in Friday's practice. He turned up limited that day after being estimated as a full participant the previous 2 days. Cleveland, of course, didn't actually practice until Friday, so it's a tough situation to read. We'll see about his status on Sunday. Losing Garrett would obviously be a huge blow for an already lackluster defense and a team with big COVID issues for the playoff opener. DT Sheldon Richardson (neck) and CB Terrance Mitchell are also questionable. Mitchell's issue is not injury related, so it's not yet clear what puts his status in question. The Browns also don't yet know if CB Denzel Ward will be able to come off the COVID list in time for the game against Pittsburgh.

The Browns expect to activate DE Myles Garrett off the COVID list Wednesday, which would make him eligible to return for Sunday's game against the Titans. Garrett missed the past 2 contests but should obviously return to IDP lineups going forward. He trails Rams DE Aaron Donald by just 0.5 for the NFL sack lead.

Browns HC Kevin Stefanski said Monday that DE Myles Garrett will miss another game on the COVID list. That puts him out for another upside matchup against Jacksonville. Porter Gustin started in Garrett's place against the Eagles, got his most playing time since Week 3 and notched a QB hit. He'll be just a low-level option against the Jaguars, though.

Browns DE Myles Garrett will miss Sunday's game against the Eagles after testing positive for COVID-19. According to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, Garrett will be eligible to return 10 days from when he first showed symptoms. The situation also puts Garrett in question for Week 12. DE Porter Gustin figures to start in Garrett's place, with Adrian Clayborn likely to add snaps as well.

Browns DE Myles Garrett sustained a knee injury in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's loss to the Raiders. He re-entered after the initial injury but played less than usual the rest of the way. HC Kevin Stefanski said after the game that Garrett will have an MRI Monday. We'll see about the severity of the issue. Cleveland gets a bye in Week 9.

Browns DE Myles Garrett took the field for practice Thursday, the first time in a week he had done so. The star pass rusher had been out with a hamstring injury but appears good to go now. Garrett never moved from his top 5 perch in our DL rankings.

The NFL has reinstated Browns DE Myles Garrett. The 24-year-old had, of course, been suspended since he hit Steelers QB Mason Rudolph in the head with Rudolph's helmet near the end of their Nov. 14th (Week 11) game. Garrett lost 6 games plus money to the suspension, but nothing about his history suggests that fantasy owners need to worry about behavior issues going forward. Garrett remains a top-shelf fantasy D-lineman, who was on pace for 16 sacks at the time of his suspension.

The NFL on Friday suspended Browns DE Myles Garrett "at a minimum for the remainder of the regular season and postseason." The league will also require that Garrett meet with the commissioner's office before he is reinstated. We'd bet on the NFL allowing Garrett to start the 2020 season on time. But you should obviously go ahead and dump him from any redraft IDP rosters. DE Chad Thomas should see continued playing time in Garrett's absence. He has filled in at left DE for Olivier Vernon (knee) the past 2 weeks.

Browns DE Myles Garrett didn't travel with the team to London and will not play Sunday morning against the Vikings. That takes a strong-performing IDP out of contention and only helps Vikings QB Case Keenum in an already-decent matchup. He's worth a look as a cheap DFS option against a Cleveland D that Football Outsiders rates #2 in run D.

The Browns have entered DE Myles Garrett into the concussion protocol after he reported to team facilities Tuesday with concussion-like symptoms. That certainly doesn't bode well for his availability for Sunday morning's game against the Vikings. We'll see how the rookie progresses. Carl Nassib would likely start in Garrett's place if he misses time.

The Browns have ruled OLB Jamie Collins (concussion) out for Sunday's game against the Colts. DE Myles Garrett (ankle) is officially doubtful for the game but didn't practice at all this week. Garrett is reportedly nearing a return, however.

The Browns announced Thursday that DE Myles Garrett suffered a high right ankle sprain in Wednesday's practice. They expect him to miss at least 2 weeks. We'll see beyond that, as high ankle sprains can often linger.

Browns DE Myles Garrett left Wednesday's practice with a right ankle injury. reports that he's likely headed for an MRI and that the team is concerned he could miss multiple weeks. That would obviously be a big blow to an already questionable defense. We'll see about the official diagnosis.

The Browns announced Saturday that DE Myles Garrett has a lateral sprain in his left foot and is expected to be ready when training camp starts in late July. That's good news compared with potentially more serious injuries, but we'll still need to watch that foot -- along with the chance of any compensatory issues -- as camp gets rolling.

Browns DE Myles Garrett suffered a left foot injury in practice Wednesday that was still being evaluated as of Thursday, according to the Akron Beacon Journal. The team had held Garrett out of some earlier OTA workouts because of a sore foot. A high left ankle sprain cost him 2 games in his final college season. This is a worrisome situation for the rookie's 2017 IDP potential, though it shouldn't affect his long-term outlook for dynasty leagues.

The Browns defied the storylines and chose Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett 1st in the 2017 NFL Draft. Garrett will likely play an OLB spot for Cleveland, which dings his IDP value a bit. But he certainly has the talent to deliver plenty of fantasy football production there. He should also have a clear path to lots of immediate playing time. Expect Garrett to sit near the top among defensive players when our dynasty rookie rankings hit the site.
