Most Recent Shark Bites

The Packers on Tuesday placed WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling on the COVID list. His status for Saturday's game against the Browns is not yet clear.

Arrowhead Pride reports that Chiefs K Harrison Butker will miss Sunday's game on the COVID list. The fact that we know that already means he's not vaccinated and is required to quarantine for at least 10 days. We'll see about the rest of this week's K.C. positives.

Chiefs K Harrison Butker has landed on the COVID list. There's a chance that he's cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Steelers, but fantasy owners should be lining up another option. Elliott Fry would kick for Kansas City if Butker misses Sunday's game.

The Chiefs have placed TE Travis Kelce on the COVID list. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that because he is vaccinated, Kelce has "a chance" to return for Sunday's game against the Steelers. The entire fantasy football community will be watching closely.

Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (back) is active for today’s game vs. the Ravens. He was limited in practice all week but played through this issue last week. MVS is an upside WR4 in a good spot for Green Bay’s passing game.

Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Ravens after a limited week of practice. He played through this issue last week, so we’re expecting him to be out there against Baltimore.

The Chiefs have ruled CB L'Jarius Sneed out for Thursday night's game against the Chargers, as he continues to deal with the murder of his older brother. His absence should give CB Mike Hughes a 2nd straight start. Hughes claimed AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors for Week 14 after tallying 9 tackles (8 solo), 2 forced fumbles and a fumble recovery he returned for a 1st-quarter TD. He'll carry IDP upside against the Chargers -- though with a ceiling likely somewhere short of that stat line.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid told reporters Tuesday that CB L'Jarius Sneed was on his way back to the team. Sneed missed Sunday's win over the Raiders to spend time with family in Louisiana, following the murder of his older brother. It sounds like he'll be ready to return to the lineup for Thursday night's game at the Chargers, but we'll confirm that as kickoff approaches. If Sneed is back, then fill-in Mike Hughes -- who kicked off a strong fantasy day with an early fumble-return TD Sunday -- would return to a reserve role.

The Chiefs have placed DT Chris Jones on the COVID list, HC Andy Reid revealed to reporters today. That likely means he's out for Thursday night's game against the Chargers. We'll watch to confirm that, of course.

Chiefs WR Josh Gordon has landed on the COVID list after a positive test Monday. That almost certainly knocks him out for Thursday night's game against the Chargers. Gordon ran 4th among Chiefs WRs in snaps Sunday against the Raiders, just 1 snap ahead of Mecole Hardman. So his absence doesn't make much of a fantasy impact but probably helps Hardman and Demarcus Robinson a little.

Texans S Justin Reid left Sunday's loss to the Seahawks with a concussion, HC David Culley confirmed after the game. CB Desmond King left the game for the same reason, but Culley said afterward that King did not actually sustain a concussion. So he should be ready for next Sunday's game at Jacksonville. Reid will need to pass through the league protocol before returning.

Chiefs slot CB Rashad Fenton (knee) is active or today's game against the Raiders. He came in questionable but will play in an upside matchup with Vegas WR Hunter Renfrow.

The Chiefs have ruled CB L'Jarius Sneed out for today's game against the Raiders after the death of his older brother. Sneed traveled to Louisiana on Saturday to be with family and reportedly remains there. We'll see whether he's ready to return for Week 15.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) is active for tonight's game vs. the Broncos. He was added to the injury report and did not practice on Friday due to a stomach bug. But we’re not expecting that to impact Edwards-Helaire’s usage tonight. He’s a solid RB2 play.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) is expected to get a "heavy workload" vs. the Broncos tonight, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. CEH was added to the injury report and did not practice on Friday due to a stomach bug, but it doesn't sound like it'll impact his role at all tonight. He's safe to get into fantasy lineups.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) is expected to play vs. the Broncos tonight, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. CEH was listed as questionable after being added to the injury report and missing practice on Friday. But we're not expecting his usage to be impacted by the situation tonight. Edwards-Helaire is safe to get into fantasy lineups.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game vs. the Broncos. He was added to the injury report and did not practice on Friday. HC Andy Reid said that CEH has a stomach flu but "should be fine" for Sunday night. Edwards-Helaire can stay penciled into Week 13 fantasy lineups for now. We'll let you know if something changes with his status.

The Texans have made S Justin Reid a healthy scratch for today's game against the Jets. According to multiple reports, it's a disciplinary measure after Reid violated team rules. A.J. Moore looks like the fill-in for Reid. Eric Murray is the top IDP option in the Houston secondary, though.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Cowboys. It’ll be his 1st action since Week 5. NFL Network's James Palmer reported this morning that the Chiefs "really don't know how much" Edwards-Helaire will play today. That obviously makes him a risky fantasy start. Darrel Williams is the better bet in the Chiefs backfield.

NFL Network's James Palmer reports that the Chiefs "really don't know how much" RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) will play vs. the Cowboys today. "I’ve been told they’ll watch pregame warmups pretty closely," Palmer added. CEH has been sidelined since Week 5. And with RB Darrel Williams playing well in his place, there's no reason for Kansas City to rush Edwards-Helaire back into a big role. It's obviously a tricky fantasy situation that might be best to avoid in Week 11 lineups. If you're picking between the 2 Chiefs, we'd go Williams.
