Travis Homer 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.

Bears RB D'Onta Foreman (ankle, shin) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Vikings. RBs Khalil Herbert, Roschon Johnson, and Travis Homer are dressed for Chicago. Herbert should handle the majority of the early-down work, with Johnson spelling him on passing downs in particular.

Bears RB Roschon Johnson (concussion) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Raiders. He's yet to return to practice, despite sustaining his concussion over two weeks ago. With RB Khalil Herbert (ankle) on IR, the Bears are down to RBs D'Onta Foreman, Darrynton Evans, and Travis Homer, who is set to return from his hamstring injury. Foreman is the favorite for carries after handling 15 of them last week.

Bears RB Roschon Johnson (concussion) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice. He's now a long shot to be cleared ahead of Sunday's game vs. the Raiders. Johnson's absence will leave Chicago's backfield to RBs D'Onta Foreman, Darrynton Evans, and Travis Homer, who is set to return from his hamstring injury. Foreman is the best fantasy bet but is an unexciting RB3 or flex play.

Bears RB Roschon Johnson (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. It's concerning that he hasn't made enough progress through the protocol to even get in a limited practice. We'll see if Johnson gets on the field tomorrow, but he seems iffy for this weekend's game vs. the Raiders. RB Travis Homer (hamstring) got in a limited practice on Wednesday after missing last week's game.

Bears RBs Khalil Herbert (ankle), Roschon Johnson, and Travis Homer (hamstring) are out for Sunday's game vs. the Vikings. That leaves Chicago with RBs D'Onta Foreman and Darrynton Evans, who spent last season with the Bears but was just re-signed earlier this week. Foreman should handle the majority of the backfield work against a middling Minnesota run defense. See where he lands in the Week 6 RB Rankings.

Bears RB Roschon Johnson (concussion) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's now an extreme long shot to be cleared in time for this weekend's game vs. the Vikings. With RB Khalil Herbert (ankle) out and RB Travis Homer (hamstring) likely out, Chicago will be down to RBs D'Onta Foreman and Darrynton Evans, who spent last season with the Bears but was just re-signed earlier this week. Foreman should handle the majority of the backfield work against Minnesota.

Bears RB Roschon Johnson (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. That doesn't bode well for his chances of being cleared in time for this weekend's game vs. the Vikings. We know that RB Khalil Herbert (ankle) will miss that one. And RB Travis Homer (hamstring) also missed Wednesday's practice. It's looking like D'Onta Foreman will be up as Chicago's lead back against Minnesota.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Bears RB Khalil Herbert is expected to miss "multiple weeks" after injuring his right ankle in Thursday night's win over Washington. That could give rookie Roschon Johnson a shot to lead the backfield. Though Johnson came away from the Washington game with a concussion that puts his Week 6 in doubt. RB Travis Homer is also dealing with a hamstring injury. So we might be looking at D'Onta Foreman as Chicago's top back for next Sunday's home date with Minnesota. We'll keep watching the situation throughout the coming week. But Foreman at least makes sense as a waiver wire option in Week 6.

The Bears' first "unofficial" depth chart lists rookie RB Roschon Johnson third. He unsurprisingly trails incumbent Khalil Herbert and veteran free-agent pickup D'Onta Foreman. Reports have had both working ahead of Johnson in training camp. An earlier version of the depth chart also had Johnson behind Trestan Ebner and Travis Homer, but Chicago corrected that. These early depth charts can often prove to hold no value, and Johnson will need to work past at least one veteran to find 2023 fantasy relevance. But he's in a decent spot considering the limited career production of Herbert and Foreman. None of the Bears' backs cracks the top 36 in our RB rankings.

The Bears signed RB D'Onta Foreman to a 1-year, $3 million deal. Foreman is coming off a nice season in Carolina, posting a career-high 914 rushing yards on 4.5 yards per carry. He ranked 26th among 42 qualifiers in Pro Football Focus' rushing grades and 21st in Elusive Rating. New backfield mate Khalil Herbert beat Foreman in both metrics, finishing 25th and 6th. We'll consider Herbert the favorite to lead Chicago's David Montgomery-less backfield in carries for now but will keep a close eye on the backfield all offseason. It's worth noting that neither Herbert nor Foreman have much pass-catching production on their resumes. The Bears also have change-of-pace types Travis Homer and Trestan Ebner on the RB depth chart. There's a chance this is a 3-man committee backfield in 2023.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (illness, ankle) missed Thursday's practice. Teammates DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer also didn't practice, both with ankle injuries of their own. We'll need to see Friday's report before giving any sort of fantasy advice regarding Week 18 vs. the Rams.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Jets. The rookie got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, which is more than he did last week. We’re expecting Walker to play his usual role in this one. RB Travis Homer (ankle) is inactive

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Week 17 vs. the Jets. The dynamic rookie practiced in a limited fashion on Thursday and Friday after opening the week sidelined. His teammates Travis Homer (ankle) and DeeJay Dallas (ankle) also logged limited practice on Friday. The Jets' defense ranks as the 10th-toughest matchup for RBs in adjusted fantasy points allowed. We consider Walker a mid-RB2 in Week 17. Neither Homer nor Dallas carries fantasy relevance if Walker suits up.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (ankle) participated in a limited fashion at Thursday's practice. After not practicing at all on Wednesday, this is certainly a good sign. Fellow RB DeeJay Dallas (ankle) also logged limited participation. RB Travis Homer (ankle) did not participate for the 2nd day in a row. Final word on these guys ahead of Week 17 vs. the Jets will come tomorrow.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (ankle) did not log practice participation on Wednesday. The same goes for RB Travis Homer (ankle). Fortunately, RB DeeJay Dallas (ankle) managed to participate in a limited fashion. We'll keep an eye on the ankles of the whole Seahawks backfield ahead of Week 17 vs. the Jets.

Seahawks RB Travis Homer sprained an ankle in Saturday's loss to the Chiefs, HC Pete Carroll said afterward. We'll see about the severity, but Homer is off the fantasy radar as long as RB Ken Walker is healthy.

Seahawks RBs DeeJay Dallas and Tony Jones are inactive for tonight's game vs. the 49ers. RBs Ken Walker, Travis Homer and Godwin Igwebuike are dressed for Seattle. We're expecting Walker to see his usual workload tonight.

With RBs Kenneth Walker III and DeeJay Dallas inactive, RB Travis Homer led the Seahawks with 9 carries and 26 yards in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. Tony Jones Jr. claimed the only other RB carry for the team and trailed Homer 3-2 in targets, despite the early Sunday report from ESPN's Adam Schefter that Jones would start. We'll see whether Walker or Dallas can make it back for Thursday's clash with the 49ers, which won't be a great spot even for a healthy RB. Godwin Igwebuike didn't play an offensive snap against the Panthers.

Seahawks RBs Ken Walker (ankle) and DeeJay Dallas (ankle) are inactive for today’s game vs. the Panthers. That leaves Seattle with RBs Travis Homer, Tony Jones and Godwin Igwebuike. ESPN’s Adam Schefter said this morning that Jones is expected to get the start.

ESPN's Adam Schefter expects RB Tony Jones to start today's game vs. the Panthers. RBs Ken Walker and DeeJay Dallas are not expected to play, so it'll be Jones, Travis Homer and Godwin Igwebuike in the backfield. Schefter expects all 3 of those guys to play, so it's not a very attractive fantasy situation. Jones might be the favorite to lead in carries, but we're still expecting Homer to get more action on passing downs.
