Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Bears. He’s OK for use in deep IDP leagues but saw only limited playing time in his Week 9 return and doesn’t face a great matchup vs. Chicago.

The 49ers have ruled S Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) and LB Reuben Foster (hamstring) out for Monday night’s game against the Giants. Tartt’s absence puts Antone Exum in starting range for IDP lineups, after he delivered starter production while filling in earlier this season

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears. He played through a questionable tag last week and then put in limited practices all this week, so we'd bet on him playing again.

49ers QB Nick Mullens will start Monday night's game against the Giants. Mullens played better than anyone could have expected in his debut last Thursday, completing 16 of 22 passes for 262 yards, 3 TDs and 0 INTs. His 151.9 passer rating was the best in NFL history in a QB debut with 16+ pass attempts. The outing said just as much about Oakland's defense as Mullens' ability, though. He's just a low-end QB2 for Week 10.

Lions DE Ezekial Ansah is active for today's game against the Vikings. He had been sidelined since suffering a shoulder injury in the 1st half of Week 1. We'll see just how many snaps he's in for. Ansah's a deep option for IDP owners but carries lots of risk as well.

The Lions "are optimistic" that DE Ezekiel Ansah will finally return from his Week 1 shoulder injury today against the Vikings, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Ansah will test it out pregame, and it's tough to know just how much we can expect Ansah to play. But he's at least expected to be available for the 1st time since the 1st half of the 1st game. Ansah's return will likely affect the playing time of recent IDP stud DE Romeo Okwara, who has been manning Ansah's right DE spot.

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings with his shoulder injury. He put in limited practices all week, but that's happened before. He hasn't appeared in a game since Week 1, though. We'll see about his status Sunday morning. Ansah probably needs to make it through a game before most of us can use him in IDP lineups. If he's out again, Romeo Okwara remains the lead guy at the right DE spot.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hip) is not listed on the final injury report. He only got in limited practices on Wednesday and Friday, though, so he’s clearly at less than 100%. That makes Sanu a shaky Week 9 fantasy play.

49ers RB Raheem Mostert broke his right arm in the 3rd quarter of Thursday night's game. It was a nasty looking injury that will very likely end his season. Mostert racked up 86 yards and a score on 6 totes against a lifeless Raiders defense before exiting.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hip) missed practice on Thursday after putting in a limited workout on Wednesday. Sanu played through this hip injury in Week 7, but the fact that he's missing time after the Week 8 bye is a serious concern. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

The 49ers have ruled out SS Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) for Thursday night's game against the Raiders. They will also be without his backup, Antone Exum (concussion). That likely means the 1st career start for S Tyvis Powell. San Franscisco also lists CB Richard Sherman (calf, heel) as questionable. An already-weak defense looks even softer for Week 9.

Niners LB Reuben Foster (hamstring) and S Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) each left Sunday's loss to the Cardinals early with injuries and did not return. San Francisco now plays Oakland on Thursday night, which will challenge the ability of either defender to make it back for Week 9.

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah is questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. He put in limited practices all week with the shoulder issue that has kept him out since Week 1. We'll see if he's finally ready to play. It's obviously tough to trust Ansah in IDP lineups even if he's active, but we'll check his status Sunday morning.

The Lions have ruled DE Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) out for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. He still hasn’t seen the gameday field since Week 1, despite varying levels of practice participation.

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah is questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. He put in limited practices every day this week but also did so in Week 2, Week 3 and Week 5 before missing those games. We'll see about Ansah's status in his potential return from the Week 1 shoulder injury Sunday morning.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee) is active. He was limited in practice all week but remains the top TE play in tonight’s game against the Packers.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu exited in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Bucs with hip injury. He was on the injury report this week with a hip, although it's unclear if this is related. We'll update Sanu's status when we learn more.

Niners TE George Kittle (knee) is questionable for Monday night's game against the Packers. He put in limited practices all week and didn't appear to miss any significant time with the issue in last week's game. We'd bet on Kittle playing Monday night. Garrett Celek should be available as an emergency fill-in should Kittle land on the inactive list.

The Lions have ruled DE Ezekiel Ansah out for Sunday’s game against the Packers. It’ll be his 4th straight missed game for the shoulder injury suffered in Week 1

The 49ers expect to get S Jaquiski Tartt back in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, according to NBC Bay Area's Matt Maiocco. Tartt missed the past 2 games with a shoulder injury, and Antone Exum delivered a pair of top-3 fantasy finishes among DBs in his place. There's no reason to believe we can't get top-shelf fantasy production from Tartt at the position going forward.
