Denver Broncos 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.

Lions WR Josh Reynolds (back) did not practice on Wednesday. His absence this weekend would again leave Kalif Raymond as Detroit's #2 WR vs. the Bears.

Lions WR Josh Reynolds (back) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Packers. It’ll be WRs Kalif Raymond and Tom Kennedy behind Amon-Ra St. Brown.

Saints TE Adam Trautman (ankle) put in a full practice on Saturday and isn't listed on the final injury report. He'll be back for Monday night's game vs. the Ravens after missing the previous 2 weeks. Trautman isn't a fantasy option but does put a slight dent in TE Juwan Johnson's outlook.

Lions WR Josh Reynolds (back) is listed as doubtful for this weekend’s game vs. the Packers after missing practice on Thursday and Friday. With WR D.J. Chark (ankle) on IR, Detroit is down to WRs Kalif Raymond and Tom Kennedy behind Amon-Ra St. Brown.

Lions WR Josh Reynolds (back) did not practice on Thursday. It's a step back from his limited practice on Wednesday. We'll see what Reynolds does on Friday and how he's listed on the final injury report.

Saints TE Adam Trautman (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. If he remains out for this weekend's game vs. the Raiders, TE Juwan Johnson will be a low-end spot-start option in fantasy lineups.

The Dolphins on Monday placed S Brandon Jones on IR for the knee injury that knocked him out of Sunday night's game. HC Mike McDaniel didn't say whether Jones would miss the rest of the season but said he expected to have more info by Wednesday. Eric Rowe is the next man up for Miami.

Dolphins S Brandon Jones left in the 3rd quarter of Sunday night's win over the Steelers with a left-knee injury. He needed a lot of help getting off the field, so this one could be significant. Dr. David Chao said that by video, there's fear of an ACL tear. We'll see what the team says Monday. Eric Rowe replaced Jones in the lineup.

Lions WR Josh Reynolds (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Cowboys. He’ll be Detroit’s #2 WR if that knee holds up. But Reynolds would be a risky fantasy play after getting in just a limited practice on Friday.

Lions WR Josh Reynolds (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Cowboys. He got in just a limited practice on Friday. So, if Reynolds plays on Sunday, it’s safe to assume he’ll be doing so at less than 100%. He’d be a risky fantasy start.

Broncos WR Courtland Sutton mustered only 2 catches for 14 yards against the Chargers in Week 6. This outcome surfaced despite the Bolts benching starting CB J.C. Jackson in the 2nd half. Sutton saw only 3 targets, behind both Jerry Jeudy (7) and Mike Boone (4). Sutton entered the night with 50+ yards in 5 straight, so this performance was certainly an outlier. But it’s a reminder that this passing game will continue to carry volatility for at least the foreseeable future. Week 7 turns up a home matchup with the Jets.

Broncos TE Greg Dulcich made his NFL debut vs. the Chargers on Monday night and immediately stepped into the lead TE role. He paced Broncos TEs with a 71% snap rate and 79% route rate. Dulcich garnered 3 targets (an 11% share), catching 2 for 44 yards and Denver's only TD of the night. If the rookie can hang around an 80% route rate, he has a chance to be a viable fantasy option moving forward. Dulcich should be rostered in fantasy leagues of 12+ teams.

Broncos TE Greg Dulcich has been activated for tonight's game vs. the Chargers. The rookie missed a bunch of practice time this spring and summer but has a chance to carve out a real role in this passing game the rest of the way. We'll be keeping a close eye on his usage tonight.

Saints TE Adam Trautman is expected to miss Thursday night's game against the Cardinals after leaving Sunday's loss with an ankle injury, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. "Early signs are that he's avoided a serious issue," Fowler adds. Juwan Johnson should benefit from Trautman's absence and be a TE2-level option for fantasy football lineups in Week 7.

Saints TE Adam Trautman hurt his ankle in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Bengals. He tried to return in the 2nd half but was unable to stay on the field. He's officially questionable to return.

The Broncos have designated S Justin Simmons (thigh) to return from IR this week. The team also released 3 players Tuesday to make room on the 53-man roster for the injured guys to return. We'll watch this week to confirm that Simmons is ready for game action.

Broncos HC Nathaniel Hackett said Tuesday that TE Greg Dulcich is ready to return to practice. The rookie missed time in the spring with a core-muscle injury and most of training camp with a hamstring. He probably has a lot of catching up to do, but Dulcich has a chance to eventually claim a significant role with TE Albert Okwuegbunam in the doghouse.

Lions WR Josh Reynolds (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Patriots. Consider him a WR4 with Amon-Ra St. Brown back for this one.

Lions WR Josh Reynolds (ankle) is expected to play vs. the Patriots today, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. Reynolds will have much less fantasy appeal if WR Amon-Ra St. Brown suits up. We'll get Detroit's inactives around 11:30 am.

Broncos RB Javonte Williams tore his right ACL in Sunday's loss to the Raiders. That obviously ends his season. Melvin Gordon becomes the obvious name as top candidate to take over the Denver backfield, but Mike Boone has seen significant use each of the past 2 games. He stepped in to run nearly as many routes as Williams and Gordon in Week 3, and then Boone played more than Gordon against the Raiders. Gordon entered Sunday with a neck issue that limited him for a couple of practices, but he finished with a full workout. He did take a 2nd-half trip to the medical tent but returned. We'll see just how the new backfield split plays out. Boone is at least worth a pickup in most fantasy football leagues.

Update: In addition to the torn ACL, Williams also has a torn LCL and posterior lateral corner, sources tell NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That figures to lengthen Williams' rehab timeline. We'll track his progress.
