Nate Hobbs 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.

Raiders CB Nate Hobbs remained limited throughout the practice week with the same ankle issue that cost him four games. But he carries no injury designation into Sunday's clash with the Giants. It's certainly not surprising that he's on track to play after returning last Monday might against the Lions and suffering no reported setbacks. But staying off the final injury report marks another positive step. Hobbs makes for a strong weekly starter in CB-required IDP leagues and can even factor in as a general DB starter. His return game included 6 tackles and a sack on just 63% playing time. That was his lowest snap share so far this season, so we'd bet on it rising going forward. See where Hobbs lands in our Week 9 DB rankings.

Raiders CB Nate Hobbs (ankle) is active for tonight's game against the Lions. It'll be his first action since suffering his injury back in Week 3. Hobbs remained limited throughout the practice week, so there's likely some risk both of a reduced initial role and re-injury. We'll watch both areas in projecting him for Week 9 and beyond.

Raiders CBs Nate Hobbs (ankle) and Jakorian Bennett (shoulder, knee) have been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears.

The Raiders have ruled CB Nate Hobbs (ankle) out for Sunday's game against the Patriots. It'll be the third straight game without Hobbs.

The Raiders have ruled CB Nate Hobbs (ankle) out for the second straight game. CB Jakorian Bennett (hamstring, shoulder) is questionable. The Monday night kickoff vs. the Packers makes Bennett not worth waiting on for IDP lineups in most cases.

The Raiders have placed S Johnathan Abram on IR for his season-ending left shoulder injury that will require surgery. Dallin Leavitt made his 1st NFL start in Abram's place Sunday against the Broncos, collecting just a single assist. The Raiders have also activated CB Nate Hobbs from the COVID list. His role could increase this week, depending on who else does or doesn't make it back from the COVID list in the Vegas secondary.

The Raiders on Monday added multiple defensive starters to the COVID list. LB Denzel Perryman and CB Casey Hayward were the biggest names. LB reserves Cory Littleton and K.J. Wright went onto the list as well, which already had CBs Brandon Facyson and Nate Hobbs on it. Hobbs has been on the list since Dec. 20 and Facyson since Dec. 22, so they should be back ahead of Sunday's game at Indianapolis. We'll see whether any of this week's additions can make it back. IDP managers should plan to be without Perryman, though. That absence would return Divine Deablo to the spotlight.
