Olamide Zaccheaus 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 Eagles on Saturday placed WR Quez Watkins on IR. He didn't hit the injury report this week until missing Friday with a hamstring issue. Watkins will now miss at least four games, leaving Olamide Zaccheaus to start in his place. It's a low-value fantasy spot regardless of who's starting.

Eagles WR DeVonta Smith (hamstring, thigh) is not listed on the final injury report for Monday night's game vs. the Bucs. He was a full participant in Saturday's practice, so it looks like there's nothing to worry about here. WR Quez Watkins (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 3, leaving Olamide Zaccheaus as Philly's No. 3 WR.

Falcons rookie WR Drake London checked in just 3rd on the team in targets and caught 2 passes for 29 yards in the 1st game since TE Kyle Pitts landed on IR. London did lead Atlanta in routes, running on all but 1 of QB Marcus Mariota's 26 dropbacks. But his 4 targets trailed WR Olamide Zaccheaus (8) and RB Cordarrelle Patterson (5). London scored in consecutive games before Sunday's dud but hasn't exceeded 40 receiving yards in a game since Week 3. He's tough to make a starting case for in most fantasy football formats.

The Falcons rested WR Olamide Zaccheaus along with other starters in Saturday night's preseason finale. According to Pro Football Focus' Nathan Jahnke, Zaccheaus "consistently" served as the 1st-team slot WR through the previous 2 exhibitions. Bryan Edwards, meanwhile, has split time with KhaDarel Hodge outside. Zaccheaus could very well be the #2 WR and 4th receiving option in Atlanta. That's not a high-upside spot but worth noting for the end of deep fantasy football drafts.

Falcons WR Calvin Ridley is INACTIVE for today's game vs. the Panthers due to a personal matter. He also missed Week 5 for the same reason. Ridley's absence leaves Atlanta with WRs Russell Gage, Olamide Zaccheaus and Tajae Sharpe atop the depth chart. TE Kyle Pitts and RB Cordarrelle Patterson should also play even bigger roles in the passing game.

Falcons WR Calvin Ridley did not travel with the team to London and is out for Sunday's game vs. the Jets due to a personal matter, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. We'll look for more info on the situation and whether Ridley will be out beyond Week 5. WR Russell Gage (ankle) is also out for Sunday's game, leaving Atlanta with WRs Olamide Zaccheaus, Tajae Sharpe and Christian Blake. We wouldn't mess with them in fantasy lineups. RB Cordarrelle Patterson will continue to play a big role in this passing game. And TE Kyle Pitts should see more volume with Ridley out.

Falcons WR Russell Gage (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game vs. Washington. Olamide Zaccheaus stepped in as Atlanta’s #2 WR with Gage out last week, catching 3 of 6 targets for 32 yards and a TD. He’s still not much of a Week 4 fantasy option.

Falcons WR Russell Gage (ankle) is out for Sunday's game against the Giants. That leaves Olamide Zaccheaus, Christian Blake and Tajae Sharp as Atlanta's 2nd through 4th WRs. None of those guys are viable fantasy options. Gage's absence should just mean a few extra targets for WR Calvin Ridley and TE Kyle Pitts.
