Jaguars LB Telvin Smith popped onto the injury report Thursday with a shoulder issue that limited his practice participation the past 2 days. Smith is questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts. We'll check his status Sunday morning.
Jaguars TE James O’Shaughnessy (hip) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Colts after a limited week of practice. If active, he should serve as Jacksonville’s lead TE but would be a desperation fantasy play.
The 49ers announced that QB Nick Mullens will start tonight's game against the Raiders. QB C.J. Beathard (wrist) will be active as the backup. Mullens went undrafted out of Southern Miss. He completed a mediocre 60% of his career passes in college and tossed 46 INTs in 44 games. Downgrade George Kittle to low-end TE1 status with Mullens under center. We'd try to avoid the rest of San Francisco's passing game.
49ers HC Kyle Shanahan labeled QB C.J. Beathard a game-time decision for Thursday night's tilt with the Raiders. He's dealing with a wrist injury that's inhibiting his ability to grip the ball. It's obviously not something you want to be messing with in fantasy lineups. QB Nick Mullens will make his 1st career NFL start if Beathard can't go.
49ers QB C.J. Beathard is dealing with a wrist injury that's making it tough to hold the ball, HC Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday. Shanny also suggested that Beathard is shaping up as a game-time decision for Thursday night's tilt with the Raiders. If Beathard can't go, San Francisco would be down to QB Nick Mullens, a former undrafted free agent out of Southern Miss.
Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde is inactive for today’s game against the Texans. He didn’t have quite enough time to get settled in after the trade to Jacksonville Friday. T.J. Yeldon will serve as the Jags’ lead back, with Jamaal Charles as the #2.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and James Palmer both hear that Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde might play against the Texans today -- just 2 days after being traded to Jacksonville. Per Palmer, Hyde arrived in Jacksonville around midnight on Friday and participated in Saturday's walkthrough. If he's active, he'd have a "small package of plays." Hyde obviously shouldn't be in Week 7 fantasy lineups. And his presence would be just a small ding to RB T.J. Yeldon's outlook.
The Browns are trading RB Carlos Hyde to Jacksonville in exchange for a mid-round draft pick, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. This doesn't bode well for RB Leonard Fournette's return from his hamstring trouble. Hyde joins T.J. Yeldon in the Jaguars backfield for now, although it's unclear if Hyde will be active for this weekend's game against the Texans. Meanwhile, Nick Chubb takes over as the primary ball-carrier in Cleveland. The rookie has flashed in limited chances, averaging 10.8 yards on 16 carries. He immediately jumps into the RB2 mix.
UPDATE: The Browns are receiving a 5th-round pick.
Jaguars TE James O’Shaughnessy (hip) is out for Sunday’s game against the Texans. With TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins on IR and TE Niles Paul also out, Jacksonville is down to TEs David Grinnage and Blake Bell. The Jaguars’ WRs should dominate targets this weekend.
Jaguars TE James O'Shaughnessy (hip) did not practice on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. It looks like he suffered the injury in Wednesday's workout and is now in danger of missing this weekend's game. Check back tomorrow for another update. A healthy O'Shaughnessy would be a low-end spot-start option in a plus matchup against the Texans.
Browns HC Hue Jackson said Monday that MLB Joe Schobert will be "down for a little while" with the hamstring injury that knocked him out of Sunday's loss to the Chargers, according to the team website. James Burgess replaced Schobert in that game but then left with his own hamstring injury and could also miss further time. Jackson said he and his staff would have to discuss the replacement plan behind Schobert and Burgess. OLB Jamie Collins reached a 90% snap share for just the 3rd time in 6 games against the Chargers and becomes more of an IDP starting option with the injuries in the middle.
Lions WR Marvin Jones (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Packers. He was added to the injury report and limited in practice on Friday. But Jones went through the same routine back in Week 3 before going out and posting a 4-69-1 line. He’s a WR3 with upside for Week 5.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Lions WR Marvin Jones is expected to play Sunday against the Packers. He's officially questionable after an ankle injury limited him in Friday's practice. We'll confirm Jones' game status at 11:30 a.m. ET.
Lions WR Marvin Jones (ankle) was added to the injury report on Friday. He was limited in practice and is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Packers. It’s worth noting that Jones went through the same routine back in Week 3 before going out and posting a 4-69-1 line. We’ll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday.
Jaguars K Josh Lambo was added to Thursday's injury report with a hip. He didn't practice. The Athletic's Daniel Popper reports that Lambo is still expected to play against the Jets this weekend, but you might want to roll with a healthier K in your fantasy lineup.
