New York Giants Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Jets DE Leonard Williams hurt his back in Sunday's loss to the Chargers and did not return. We'll see if he's well enough to play against the Patriots in the finale, but the situation at least adds risk to a guy who has mostly disappointed IDP owners all year. Teammate Muhammad Wilkerson, of course, has been a healthy scratch the past 2 weeks because of his crappy attitude.

X-rays on Giants TE Evan Engram's ribs came back clean, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That gives the rookie a shot to play in Sunday's finale against the Redskins, although the Giants could just decide to shut him down. We'll continue to track the situation.

Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul (finger) and S Landon Collins (ankle) are active for today’s game against he Cardinals. Collins remains risky, though, after playing less than 30% of the snaps last week

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) is not listed on the final Week 15 injury report. He was limited on Thursday and Friday but obviously isn’t in danger of missing Sunday’s game against the Eagles. The hamstring still adds a bit of risk to his fantasy outlook, especially after Shepard busted with a 2-catch, 16-yard outing last week.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) was limited in Thursday's practice. He was off the injury report altogether on Wednesday, so it's unclear if he suffered a setback or if the Giants are just giving him some rest. Check back for another update tomorrow.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Cowboys. There were conflicting reports on his status this morning, but Shepard obviously felt good enough in pregame warmups. There’s a bit more risk here than usual, but a plus matchup makes him worth starting in most cases.

ESPN's Jordan Raanan and Dan Graziano both expect Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) to play against the Cowboys today. That conflicts with an earlier report from NFL.com that Shepard was unlikely to go. Shepard told Raanan on Friday that he "didn't feel the hamstring at all" and was "running at full speed" in practice. We'll find out his official status by noon ET. If active, Shepard will be a risk/reward WR2.

NFL.com reports that Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) "likely will not" play against the Cowboys today. It's a bit surprising after he was able to get in 2 limited practices this week. We'll find out Shepard's official status by noon ET, but he obviously belongs on fantasy benches for now. His absence will again leave Roger Lewis and Tavarres King as New York's top 2 WRs. It's also worth noting that TE Evan Engram has struggled the last 2 games Shepard has missed, posting lines of 1-9 and 3-18.

The Giants have ruled MLB B.J. Goodson out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. That clears a muddled LB picture a bit for IDP owners and makes Kelvin Sheppard likely to get enough snaps to be useful in fantasy. Sheppard led all Giants LBs in snaps each of the past 2 weeks, topping 80% in each game while supplying 7 and 8 total tackles (including 7 combined solos). The team also placed OLB Jonathan Casillas on IR Wednesday with neck and wrist injuries.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Cowboys. He put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday. ESPN’s Jordan Raanan expects Shepard to play — and we’ll find out for sure by noon ET on Sunday. The hamstring obviously adds some risk, but Shepard will be worth starting in most cases vs. a Dallas defense that’s struggled against slot receivers.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. Interim HC Steve Spagnuolo wouldn't commit to Shepard playing this weekend, though, only saying that he's "hopeful." We'll get another update tomorrow.

The Bengals have placed WR John Ross on IR. It ends a woefully disappointing rookie season for the 9th overall pick of this spring's draft. Ross appeared in 3 games, played 17 snaps and touched the ball once -- a 12-yard carry way back in Week 2 on which he lost a fumble. He caught 0 of 2 targets. Ross fell behind after offseason shoulder surgery, hurt his knee in late August and also dealt with an ankle injury during the middle of the season. Durability remains a major concern for a guy who entered the league with an extensive injury history.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard missed Wednesday's practice with a hamstring injury. It's the 1st we've heard of it after Shepard played 61 of 62 snaps last week. We'll see if he's able to get back on the field tomorrow.

Titans CB Logan Ryan suffered a concussion in Sunday's win over the Texans. He'll need to progress through the league protocol before returning to the field. Sitting out Week 14 would mean missing the league's top scoring matchup for fantasy DBs in Arizona.

The Giants have fired HC Ben McAdoo and GM Jerry Reese. The G-Men are less than a year removed from a playoff berth, but things fell apart this year. New York is 2-10 and ranks 29th in point differential (-102). It'll be a full rebuild this offseason with a new HC, GM and QB.

Broncos insider Troy Renck reports that RB Devontae Booker was limited by the flu in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins. He played just 11 snaps and handled only 3 touches after averaging 28.8 and 10.6, respectively, over his previous 5 games. RB C.J. Anderson piled up 110 total yards on 19 touches vs. Miami, but it sounds like we can't count on that type of volume again as long as Booker is healthy.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (migraines) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He'll return for a plus matchup against the Raiders, although the switch to QB Geno Smith adds some risk to Shepard’s outlook.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (migraines) returned to practice on Wednesday. We'll see how he responds to the work. Shepard would be in a plus spot this weekend vs. the Raiders but would be trying to catch passes from QB Geno Smith.

Giants LB Kelvin Sheppard (groin), LB Jonathan Casillas (neck), DT Damon Harrison (ankle) and DE Olivier Vernon (shoulder) are all active for tonight's game against Washington. All are usable to different degrees in IDP leagues. Vernon gets a boost from Washington missing LT Trent Williams.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (migraines) is inactive for tonight's game against the Redskins. He'll have 10 days to try to get ready for Week 13. Roger Lewis, Tavarres King and Travis Rudolph are left as New York's top 3 WRs. Rudolph, the slot man, might be the best DFS flier.
