Most Recent Shark Bites

Chiefs LB Ben Niemann left in the 1st half of Sunday's win over the Falcons with a hamstring injury. With Anthony Hitchens (COVID list) and Damien Wilson (knee) already inactive, that left Darius Harris and Willie Gay Jr. to lead the LB corps in playing time. Harris edged Gay by 5 snaps, but Gay posted a team-high 9 tackles (7 solo). Kansas City clinched the AFC's top playoff seed with the win, so a meaningless Week 17 would seem like the perfect spot to give the 2nd-round rookie another start and a long look -- especially with other LBs nursing injuries. We'll see how this week unfolds, though.

11:12am EST 12/27/20

Ravens WR Marquise Brown (knee) is active for today’s game against the Giants. He was added to the injury report and sidelined on Thursday but returned to a full workout on Friday. Brown should be ready for his regular role today.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray suffered a leg injury late in Saturday night's loss to the 49ers. But NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that it "doesn't seem serious." We'll keep an eye on Murray's status leading up to next weekend's game vs. the Rams. Arizona needs to win that one to have a shot at the playoffs, so Murray will be out there if able.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants. He was added to the injury report and sidelined on Thursday but returned to a full workout on Friday. Brown should be good to go for this one, but check back Sunday to make sure he's active.

Steelers RB James Conner (quad) doesn't appear on the final injury report. That returns him to the lineup for a tough matchup with the Colts. Conner hasn't topped 13 carries since Week 8 and could still cede work to Benny Snell this week. We'd prefer to avoid the Pittsburgh backfield, if possible.

Cardinals LB Haason Reddick (shoulder) and CB Dre Kirkpatrick (hamstring, calf) are questionable for Saturday's game against the 49ers. Reddick missed Tuesday's practice but returned for limited workouts the next 2 days. Kirkpatrick missed all 3 days of practice and doesn't appear worth trusting even if he's active.

Lions K Matt Prater (back) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Bucs. He only got in 1 limited practice this week. We'd look for a healthier option for Week 16 fantasy lineups.

Steelers RB James Conner (quad) put in a full practice on Wednesday. He's on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Colts. Conner figures to re-assume lead duties but has been completely ineffective for over a month now. He's a shaky Week 16 fantasy play.

Steelers RB James Conner (quad) has been downgraded to out for tonight's game against the Bengals. That leaves the backfield to Benny Snell and Jaylen Samuels. Snell totaled 24 carries and 7 targets when Conner missed Weeks 12 and 13 and should lead the way in carries tonight. Samuels has captured a bigger passing-game role lately, though, with 6 catches on 8 targets over the past 2 games. Look for him to play in passing situations vs. Cincinnati.

11:12am EST 12/20/20

Ravens WR Marquise Brown is active for today’s game against the Jaguars. He missed practice all week as a close contact on the COVID list. We don’t expect him to be limited today, though, and the matchup makes him an upside WR3.

Steelers RB James Conner (quad) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Bengals. He got in limited practices on Friday and Saturday. Conner seems on track to play but is just a RB3 or flex option at less than 100% and in a struggling Steelers ground game.

Ravens WRs Marquise Brown, Miles Boykin and James Proche have been activated from the COVID list and are eligible to play vs. the Jaguars tomorrow. Brown has scored in 3 straight while totaling 22 targets. He has plenty of upside in a pristine matchup against a beat-up Jacksonville secondary.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that Giants QB Colt McCoy is "trending" toward starting against the Browns on Sunday night. "Team still has some work today so window still slightly open for Daniel Jones," Fowler adds. We'll continue to keep an eye on the situation, but you should be avoiding Giants QBs in Week 15 fantasy lineups.

Steelers RB James Conner (quad) returned to a limited practice on Friday. It looks like he'll suit up for Monday night's game vs. the Bengals, but check back tomorrow for another update on his status.

Steelers RB James Conner (quad) did not practice on Thursday. He's at least in some danger of missing Monday night's game vs. the Bengals. Conner's absence would leave lead duties to RB Benny Snell, who totaled 24 carries and 7 targets when Conner missed Weeks 12 and 13.

Ravens WRs Marquise Brown, Miles Boykin and James Proche were deemed close contacts and have not tested positive for COVID, HC John Harbaugh said Wednesday. The WRs won't be able to practice this week but will be eligible to play vs. the Jaguars on Sunday if they continue to test negative. We'll continue to monitor the situation.

Ravens WRs Marquise Brown, James Proche and Miles Boykin have been placed on the COVID list. We'll see if they tested positive for the virus or were just close contacts. If all 3 are out vs. Jacksonville this weekend, Willie Snead, Dez Bryant and Devin Duvernay would be left as Baltimore's top 2 WRs. TE Mark Andrews, of course, would be the heavy favorite to lead in targets.

Steelers RB James Conner is dealing with a quad injury, HC Mike Tomlin said Tuesday. We don't have any details on the severity or Conner's status for Monday night's game vs. the Bengals. We'll keep an eye on his practice participation this week. If Conner is sidelined vs. Cincinnati, Benny Snell would step back in as Pittsburgh's lead back.

7:12pm EST 12/13/20

Steelers RB James Conner is officially active for tonight’s game against the Bills. He should step back in the lead back, although Pittsburgh has been going so pass-heavy lately that there hasn’t been much fantasy value in the backfield. RB Anthony McFarland is a healthy scratch tonight.

Cardinals LB De'Vondre Campbell (ankle) and LB Isaiah Simmons (neck, back) are active for today's game against the Giants. Both guys entered the day questionable. Campbell didn't practice this week, so he certainly doesn't pop as a safe play for IDP lineups. Simmons has remained behind Campbell in playing time, so Campbell's presence makes him a weak IDP bet as well.
