New York Jets 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.

The Chargers expect WR Mike Williams to miss a "minimum" of 4 weeks with his high-ankle sprain, according to The Athletic's Daniel Popper. That's a typical timeline for this injury. Williams gets a Week 8 bye but figures to miss at least the next 3 games vs. the Falcons, 49ers and Chiefs. We'd still try to keep him stashed on fantasy benches as a late-season asset. Williams' absence will leave Keenan Allen, Josh Palmer and DeAndre Carter as Los Angeles' top 3 WRs.

Chargers WR Mike Williams has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Williams is now looking at a multi-week absence. If there's a silver-lining here, it's that L.A. enters a Week 8 bye.

The MRI on Jets RB Breece Hall's knee revealed a torn ACL and a meniscus injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hall will miss the rest of the 2022 season -- and the meniscus injury could mean a longer rehab. Hall has about 10-and-a-half months before the start of the 2023 campaign. We'll keep an eye on his progress. The good news is that Hall has age on his side, turning just 22 next May. We still like him as a top-5 dynasty RB. His absence leaves Michael Carter as New York's clear lead back. We'll see if the 5-2 Jets make an addition at the position. Carter doesn't project as a workhorse.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers managed only 194 yards on 23-of-35 passing in Sunday's loss to the Commanders. He found RB Aaron Jones for the team's only 2 offensive TDs. WR Allen Lazard was the only other Packer to catch more than 3 passes, before leaving with a shoulder injury. TE Robert Tonyan contributed 3-32 receiving on 4 targets. WR Sammy Watkins returned from IR (hamstring) to catch 2 passes for 36 yards among 4 targets. Rookie Romeo Doubs went catchless on 4 targets. Doubs finished as the clear playing-time leader, with Lazard leaving early and the team missing WRs Randall Cobb and Christian Watson. No member of this pass offense looks attractive for a Week 8 visit to Buffalo.

Chargers WR Mike Williams will undergo an MRI on Monday on the right ankle he sprained in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. Williams was in a walking boot afterward and couldn't put any weight on that right leg in the locker room, according to The Athletic's Daniel Popper. We should get an update on Williams tomorrow.

The Jets believe WR Corey Davis suffered an MCL sprain in Sunday's win over the Broncos, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. HC Robert Saleh said afterwards that it's not a long-term injury. We should get a more concrete timeline for Davis on Monday. His absence will leave Garrett Wilson and Elijah Moore (assuming he stays with the team) as the Jets' clear top-2 WRs. This has been an extremely run-heavy offense under QB Zach Wilson, but New York might throw it a bit more going forward without RB Breece Hall.

Jets HC Robert Saleh said after Sunday's win over the Broncos that RB Breece Hall is believed to have a torn ACL. We should get confirmation tomorrow, but it sounds like Hall's impressive rookie season is over. His absence will leave Michael Carter as New York's lead back -- and a likely RB2 in fantasy football.

Chargers WR Mike Williams injured his right ankle in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Seahawks. He had to be helped off by a couple of trainers, putting hardly any weight on the leg. We'll update Williams' status when we know more, but this doesn't look good. The Chargers at least get a Week 8 bye.

Jets RB Breece Hall injured his knee in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Broncos. He made it off the field under his own power but was carted to the locker room. Hall has been ruled out. We'll update his status when we know more.

Jets WR Corey Davis is questionable to return to Sunday's game vs. the Broncos with a knee injury. With WR Elijah Moore scratched, Davis' absence leaves New York with WRs Garrett Wilson, Braxton Berrios, Jeff Smith and Denzel Mims.

Packers WR Allen Lazard injured his shoulder in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game in Washington. He's questionable to return. We'll update Lazard's status when we know more.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (thumb) is not listed on the final Week 7 injury report. He was out on Wednesday, a full-go on Thursday and then limited on Friday. That’s a bit different than last week, when he went no practice, full, full. Rodgers will start Sunday’s game vs. the Commanders, but it’s possible that the thumb is an issue.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (thumb) returned to a full practice on Thursday. He'll play vs. the Commanders this weekend, but it's unclear if that thumb will be an issue. He completed just 63% of his passes for 6.0 yards per attempt vs. the Jets last week.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (thumb) did not practice on Wednesday. He played through this issue last week but managed just 6.0 yards per attempt and 1 TD against the Jets. It looks like the thumb might still be an issue vs. the Commanders this weekend.

Chargers WR Mike Williams caught only 2 of 6 targets for 17 yards in Week 6. CB Patrick Surtain shadowed Williams for most of the night, and that matchup proved difficult for the veteran WR. This dud followed 2 straight outings of 120+ yards, but of course, it’s not totally out of character. Williams posted games of 10 and 15 yards over the first 3 weeks. Keenan Allen (hamstring) should return over the next week or so, helping keep Williams’ boom-or-bust profile intact. Sunday turns up a bounce-back spot vs. Seattle.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers struggled mightily in Week 6, posting 246 yards and 1 TD on 41 attempts. He tied a season-high with 4 sacks against a Jets team that entered with only 10 in 5 games. After the loss, Rodgers shared a desire to simplify the offense. Something has to change, as he enters Week 7 as the QB18. The Washington matchup is a positive one, but it's tough to put QB1-level faith in Rodgers right now.

Packers WR Allen Lazard reached the end zone for the 4th time in 5 games in Sunday's loss to the Jets. Overall, he caught 4 of 9 targets for 76 yards and the score. It marked his 3rd straight game with at least 8 targets. Lazard and rookie Romeo Doubs also continued to easily lead the offense in routes. Doubs also saw 9 targets, catching 4 for just 21 yards.

Jets RB Breece Hall ran for 116 yards and a TD on 20 carries in Sunday's win over the Packers. He added 2 catches for 5 yards on 2 targets. That tied him for the team lead in receptions in a game that found the Jets attempting only 18 passes. RB Michael Carter rushed 6 times for 41 yards and caught 1 pass for 6 yards.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (thumb) isn’t listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He was held out on Wednesday but put in full practices on Thursday and Friday. We’re not expecting the right thumb to be an issue vs. the Jets this weekend.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (thumb) returned to a full practice on Thursday. He had a wrap on that throwing thumb, but there's been nothing to suggest at this point that it'll be an issue vs. the Jets this weekend. We'll continue to keep an eye on the situation.
