Bears OLBs Khalil Mack (knee) and Robert Quinn (ankle) are active for today's game against the Giants. Mack played through a questionable tag in Week 1 and should be good to go for normal IDP use. Quinn will be playing his 1st game and sat out training camp with his ailment. So it's tough to know whether he'll see full playing time. He'll be risky for IDP lineups, though the Giants present sack upside. Having both active helps the Chicago team D.
Bears OLBs Khalil Mack (knee) and Robert Quinn (ankle) are both questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants. Mack put in all limited practices for the 2nd straight week. He played through a questionable tag in Week 1, so we'd bet on him doing so again. Quinn sat out Week 1 with the ankle sprain that cost him nearly all of training camp. But he graduated to a full practice Friday. Quinn's just a low-level IDP option, and it's tough to know whether he'd get full playing time if active. We'll check the status on both edge guys Sunday morning.
Bears OLB Khalil Mack is active for today's game against the Lions after entering the day questionable with a knee issue. As expected, OLB Robert Quinn is inactive with his ankle injury. He came in doubtful after not practicing all week.
Bears OLB Robert Quinn is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Lions. He's dealing with an ankle injury that cost him most of training camp. We'll see when the big-money free-agent addition can return. OLB Khalil Mack (knee) is questionable. Mack put in limited practices every day this week, so we'd bet on him playing.
The Bears on Tuesday agreed to a 5-year, $70 million deal with EDGE Robert Quinn, including $30 million guaranteed. Quinn rebounded to tie for 9th in the NFL with 11.5 sacks last season and tie for 16th with 22 QB hits. That followed just 24 total sacks over his previous 4 seasons, though, including 2015 and 2016 campaigns halved by injury. Quinn turns 30 in May and has proved a dynamic pass rusher when healthy. He and Khalil Mack have a chance to become the league's top pass-rushing duo over the next couple of years. His move to Chicago's 3-4 base, though, also should change Quinn's designation in most IDP leagues from DE to LB. That will hurt his fantasy value even if he continues to produce. The Bears also reportedly will release former 1st-round OLB Leonard Floyd -- who had been starting in Quinn's new spot. Dallas, meanwhile, must replace the guy who led last year's defense by 6.5 sacks.
Cowboys DE Robert Quinn suffered a rib injury at the end of the 1st half of Sunday night's game against the Eagles and has been ruled out. Fortunately for him, Dallas gets a Week 8 bye. We'll see about the official diagnosis and return timeline here.
The Cowboys will miss DE Robert Quinn for the 1st 2 games because of a PED suspension, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. The news comes in the same week that Quinn broke his left hand, which will require surgery. On the plus side, the 2 games give him a little more time to recover from that. Assuming the suspension holds up, Quinn would return for an upside home matchup with the Dolphins in Week 3.
Cowboys DE Robert Quinn broke his left hand Tuesday and will need surgery, according to multiple outlets. He's expected to return in time for the regular-season opener. We'll keep an eye on the situation.
NFL Network reports that the Cowboys and Dolphins have worked out a trade for DE Robert Quinn. That should position Quinn as Dallas' starting right DE, opposite Demarcus Lawrence. Quinn led Miami with 6.5 sacks and 9 tackles for loss last season. Among Cowboys, only Lawrence beat either number. Settling at DE in Dallas' 4-3 front helps Quinn's IDP value and makes him a potential DL2. His arrival also helps a team D that has upgraded over the past couple of years.
Rams OLB Robert Quinn sat out team drills at minicamp this week with a cast on his right hand following minor surgery, according to multiple reports. HC Sean McVay said Quinn will be ready for training camp, and this injury could certainly prove to be no big deal. But he has lost time to knee, hip, back and shoulder injuries over the past 2 years. Quinn needs to get and stay healthy and then prove he remains 1 of the league's top pass rushers. If he does so this summer, he'll hold plenty of upside in sack-friendly IDP leagues -- despite a move from DE to OLB. If he doesn't, a potentially solid Rams D might suffer.
The Rams will switch their base defensive front to a 3-4 under new DC Wade Phillips, according to the Los Angeles Daily News. That could mean significantly different roles for a number of front-seven players. The most affected in fantasy terms will likely be Robert Quinn, who figures to move from DE to OLB. If that designation changes for 2017 on most fantasy sites, then his IDP ceiling will come down considerably. Aaron Donald will move from his 3-technique DT spot, but he'll retain DL eligibility. Phillips told the Daily News that if Donald doesn't fit your system, then your system isn't working. We'll trust the seasoned veteran DC to put the stud lineman in position to make plays. LBs Alec Ogletree and Mark Barron will face a big change as well, which could include taking on a lot more blockers in the run game. This will be a key defense to look at as we head toward the summer, regardless of your fantasy football format.
Rams DE Robert Quinn is out for more than just tonight's game against the Seahawks. Los Angeles has placed him on IR with the concussion that cost him the previous 2 games. Quinn has dealt with multiple injuries this year, though, dating back to offseason back surgery. As IDP owners, let's hope his 2017 offseason -- and ensuing regular season -- proves healthier.
Rams DE Robert Quinn (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's game at New England after missing practice all week. We would not bet on Quinn playing based on the usual concussion timelines this year. Generally, players who return without missing a game tend to hit the practice field before the week ends. Quinn hasn't been supplying big IDP numbers anyway, so he shouldn't be difficult to replace in lineups. We'll confirm his status Sunday -- unless the team rules him out sooner.
