The Giants expect WR Sterling Shepard to return to practice this week, according to the team's official website. Shepard missed the past 3 games with a toe injury. HC Joe Judge said he wants to see Shepard practice before determining whether the wideout will be ready to come off IR for Sunday's game against Washington. We'll watch his progress. Even if Shepard doesn't play in Week 6, he's worth a look as a potential Week 6 waiver pickup in leagues that saw him dropped.

Giants S Jabrill Peppers is active for today’s game against the Cowboys. He missed Week 4 with the low-ankle sprain and still carries some risk but is available for IDP lineups if you were planning to use him

Giants S Jabrill Peppers is questionable for Sunday's game at Dallas. He put in limited practices all week after missing last Sunday's game with a low-ankle sprain. The team will continue evaluating him through the weekend before determining his status for the game, according to NorthJersey.com. The 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff Sunday afternoon will make Peppers hard for IDP owners to wait for -- especially with the ankle adding some risk even if he does play. We'll check his status when the inactives come out.

Giants S Jabrill Peppers put in a limited practice Wednesday. That marked progress from Week 4, where he sat out every day with a low-ankle sprain and ultimately missed the game. We'll watch his progress through the week to see if Peppers is ready to return against the Cowboys this Sunday.

Giants DB Julian Love (ankle, knee) is active for today’s game against the Rams. He carries big tackle upside against a strong Rams offense, especially with S Jabrill Peppers out.

As expected, the Giants have officially ruled S Jabrill Peppers (ankle) out for Sunday's game against the Rams. DB Julian Love (ankle, knee) is questionable for the game. We'll check his status Sunday morning.

Giants S Jabrill Peppers left Sunday's loss to the 49ers with an ankle injury. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that it's believed to be a low-ankle sprain. Peppers is likely headed for further evaluation Monday, so we'll see about his outlook for Week 4 and beyond. Julian Love filled in for Peppers, logging a team-high 11 tackles. He'd in play for IDP lineups vs. the Rams on Sunday if Peppers misses further time.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Cardinals. He was limited in practice all week and admitted on Friday that he’s still not at 100%. There’s elevated risk here — but also plenty of upside in a likely shootout.

Bengals WR John Ross is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Eagles. Rookie Tee Higgins has taken over as Cincinnati's #3 WR. We'd love to see the Bengals trade Ross and give him a shot elsewhere.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is set to play against the Cardinals this afternoon, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Golladay was limited in practice all week and admitted on Friday that he's still not at 100%. That adds risk to his Week 3 outlook. But there's also plenty of upside here in a likely shootout in Arizona.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals after a limited week of practice. “Definitely feeling a lot better. Wouldn’t say it’s 100 percent, I really wouldn’t even put a percentage on it. I just know I’m not 100 percent,” Golladay admitted on Friday. “I’m going to do everything I can and hopefully I showed enough (in practice this week) that I can be out there.” Lions-Cardinals doesn’t kick off until 4:25 pm ET on Sunday, but hopefully we’ll get an update on his status in the morning. If active, consider Golladay a risk/reward WR3.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) remained limited in Thursday's practice. He's on track to play against the Cardinals this weekend -- although it'd be nice to see him get in a full workout tomorrow.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. It's his 1st practice of any kind since going down prior to Week 1. Golladay has a shot to return for Sunday's game against the Lions -- although we'd feel better about getting him in fantasy lineups if he gets in a full practice on Thursday and/or Friday.

The Giants have placed WR Sterling Shepard on IR. So he'll miss at least the next 3 games with his turf toe. That's an injury that tends to linger, so we'll see exactly when Shepard is able to get back on the field. His absence will mean more targets for WR Darius Slayton, WR Golden Tate and TE Evan Engram.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard came away from Sunday's loss to the Bears with turf toe. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, he's expected to miss at least this week's clash with the 49ers. Shepard's return timeline beyond that is not yet clear.

Monday morning testing confirmed the Giants' fears. RB Saquon Barkley will have surgery soon to repair his torn right ACL. Dion Lewis and Wayne Gallman climb the pecking order with Barkley down. The Giants will reportedly have RB Devonta Freeman in for a visit as well -- and figure to sign someone even if Freeman doesn't fit.

The Giants fear RB Saquon Barkley tore his right ACL against the Bears, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. There will reportedly be further testing Monday to "make a full and complete determination." RB Dion Lewis scored a 1-yard rushing TD after Barkley's departure and should be the next guy up. But RB Wayne Gallman would likely be significantly involved as well.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard suffered a toe injury in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Bears. He hobbled off to the locker room and is officially questionable to return.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley suffered what appeared to be a right knee injury in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Bears. He immediately grasped at the knee in pain and had to be carried off. This obviously doesn't look good. We'll update Barkley's status when we learn more. Barkley's absence leaves the G-Men with Dion Lewis and Wayne Gallman.

Update: Barkley has been ruled out.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay is "really close" to returning from his hamstring injury, HC Matt Patricia told NFL Network's Tom Pelissero on Saturday. Golladay will miss his 2nd straight game today and didn't practice at all this week. But it sounds like the Lions have been playing it extra safe with that hammy. We'll track his practice participation this coming week. Marvin Jones, Quintez Cephus and Danny Amendola figure to serve as Detroit's top 3 WRs vs. the Packers today.
