Most Recent Shark Bites

Rams WR Robert Woods did not practice on Wednesday due to a foot issue. HC Sean McVay said that he expects Woods to play vs. the Titans on Sunday night, but check back tomorrow for another update.

Titans RB Derrick Henry will undergo foot surgery on Tuesday morning, HC Mike Vrabel said. Vrabel gave no timeline for Henry's return or any other details. Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reports that Henry broke the 5th metatarsal in his foot, commonly referred to as a Jones Fracture. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, meanwhile, reports that Henry is expected to miss 6-10 weeks. "Six would be quite fast, eight is more likely," Rapoport says. That 8-week mark would have Henry back for Week 17 -- or championship week in most fantasy leagues. You can hang on to Henry if you have an IR spot or a very deep bench. But he's also cuttable if you need to free up a roster spot.

Titans RB Derrick Henry suffered a "potentially" season-ending foot injury in yesterday's win over the Colts, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. "Henry is undergoing an MRI today to determine the full extent of the damage," Schefter adds. We'll update Henry's status as soon as we know more, but this injury obviously has major fantasy implications. Tennessee only has RBs Jeremy McNichols and Dontrell Hilliard behind Henry on the depth chart right now. RB Mekhi Sargent is on the practice squad. None of those guys are fit to handle anywhere close to Henry's volume. The Titans could add a RB before Tuesday's trade deadline. But we'll likely see them shift significantly toward the pass for as long as Henry is sidelined. It's good news for QB Ryan Tannehill and WR A.J. Brown.

Titans LB Rashaan Evans is questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts after popping up on Friday's injury report with an ankle issue that kept him out of practice. That should keep Evans out of IDP lineups even if he's active. The team also designated LB Jayon Brown to return from IR this week. We don't yet know whether he has a chance to play Sunday.

Titans S Amani Hooker is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs after apparently sustaining a groin injury in Friday's practice. He didn't appear on the injury report until Friday, when he was limited. We'll check his status Sunday morning.

Titans LB Bud Dupree is inactive for today's game against the Jaguars. DL Denico Autry is active after arriving questionable.

Rams HC Sean McVay said the kind of thing this week that fantasy football players want to hear about WR Robert Woods: "This guy's a stud in every sense of the word. It is important to be able to get a handful of guys involved. That's something that I always want to continue to be intentional about. ... When Robert's involved, that's a good thing for the Rams offense. That's something that we want to continue to see displayed, but Robert is a leader, he's a captain and he's been doing a great job up to this point. We just need to get him some more opportunities and that starts with me." Woods sits well behind leader Cooper Kupp but has still seen the 2nd most targets among Rams through 4 games. After seeing 6 targets or fewer in 3 of the first 4 games, though, perhaps he'll find more passes coming his way Thursday night at Seattle. The Seahawks have provided a high-upside matchup for opposing offenses so far, including spending more defensive snaps on the field than any other team. If your lineup decisions are close for Week 5, we'd lean toward giving Woods a shot.

The Texans on Friday placed LB Zach Cunningham and DL Ross Blacklock on the COVID list. That means neither guy will be available for Sunday's game against the Bills. Cunningham is a big loss for IDP lineups. Expect Kamu Grugier-Hill to start in his place. Christian Kirksey also gets an opportunity boost.

Titans OLB Bud Dupree (knee) is active for today's game against the Colts. He entered questionable and still doesn't seem 100% back from last year's ACL tear. We'd try not to use him in IDP lineups. But he's available if you're in need.

Titans OLB Bud Dupree is questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts because of knee trouble. He played through a questionable tag last week for 72% of the snaps. This week, however, found him missing practice both Wednesday and Friday. Dupree put in 2 limited workouts before playing Week 2. We'll update his status Sunday morning, but Dupree -- coming off a late 2020 ACL tear -- shouldn't be anywhere near your IDP lineups.

Titans LT Taylor Lewan suffered a leg injury in pregame warmups-ups and is inactive vs. Seattle

Titans S Amani Hooker will miss at least 3 games after the team placed him on IR this week. Hooker exited Week 1 with a foot injury, the severity of which is not yet clear. Bradley McDougald filled in for Hooker in that game and figures to start next to Kevin Byard while Hooker is out. McDougald has been a solid-to-strong IDP producer when playing full time in previous stops.

The 49ers on Wednesday claimed RB Trenton Cannon off waivers from the Ravens. He joins a depth chart that also includes Elijah Mitchell, Trey Sermon and JaMycal Hasty -- in some order -- plus Kerryon Johnson, a recent addition to the practice squad. We'll see where all this goes.

The Titans signed K Randy Bullock off their practice squad. He'll replace K Michael Badgley, who was dumped earlier today. Bullock isn't a recommended Week 2 fantasy play after Tennessee's offense struggled in the opener.

The Ravens have signed RB Trenton Cannon to the active roster. That comes at the same time as the team added Le'Veon Bell to the practice squad, which should answer your question if you're wondering whether to claim Bell off waivers. Cannon has 48 career carries and 28 targets since hitting the league as a 6th-round pick of the Jets in 2018. He's expected to primarily contribute on special teams.

Titans QB Ryan Tannehill has been activated from the COVID list. He should be good to go for next Sunday's opener vs. the Cardinals. RB Jeremy McNichols was also activated from the COVID list and will join Mekhi Sargent behind Derrick Henry on the depth chart.

The Titans are cutting rookie WR Dez Fitzpatrick, according to longtime Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky. That's a surprising move after the team traded up in Round 4 to draft him out of Louisville. Tennessee might still be hoping to stash him on the practice squad, but the team is clearly willing to lose him. That dims the dynasty outlook for Fitzpatrick.

The Titans announced Thursday that QB Ryan Tannehill has landed on the COVID list. It's not yet clear whether he tested positive or was merely a close contact, so he'll miss anywhere from 5-10 days. Either timeframe should still have him back on the field ahead of the regular-season opener. We'll pass along any further updates on the situation.

Browns HC Kevin Stefanski says he plans to "grow the role" of TE Austin Hooper this season, according to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal. Hooper went from about 18% target share before his appendectomy last season to 15.3% after. Either of those target shares would have ranked top 9 at the position last season. Only 5 TEs cracked 18% for the year. Hooper is an easy value well into TE2 territory in current ADP.

The Titans have placed rookie CB Caleb Farley on the non-football injury list and OLB Bud Dupree on the PUP list to begin training camp. Dupree is still working back from the early December right ACL tear that ended his 2020 season. Farley has had 2 back surgeries since his last action at Virginia Tech in 2019. Both players figure to be important pieces for a Tennessee defense that needs to improve on last year's performance. We'll see how they progress through the summer.
