Most Recent Shark Bites

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (neck) is out for Sunday night’s game vs. the Steelers. HC Pete Carroll was hoping to get Carson back at practice this week, but it didn’t happen. His status for Week 7 and beyond is uncertain. Alex Collins gets another game as Seattle’s lead back and is a fine volume bet on Sunday night. But consider him just a RB3 or flex with Geno Smith under center and facing Pittsburgh’s 4th-ranked RB defense.

The Chargers have ruled LB Drue Tranquill out for Sunday's game at Baltimore with a chest injury. S Nasir Adderley is questionable with a hip injury. We'll update his status Sunday morning. Tranquill's absence should make Kyzir White a good bet to lead Chargers LBs in playing time and tackles.

Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. He didn't practice all week and seems to be in real danger of missing this one. We'll look for an update on Williams' status on Sunday morning and will find out whether he's active around 11:30 am ET.

Steelers WR James Washington (groin) is not listed on the final injury report and will play vs. the Seahawks on Sunday night. We’re expecting Washington step in as Pittsburgh’s #3 WR with JuJu Smith-Schuster out -- although Washington still isn’t much of a fantasy option.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (quad) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. Washington. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, although HC Andy Reid said Hill was "bouncing around pretty good" in Friday’s workout. We’ll look for an update on Hill on Sunday morning and will get his game status around 11:30 am ET.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow (throat) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’s good to go for Sunday’s plus matchup vs. the Lions.

Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Bengals after getting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. He was in the same boat last week and ended up playing 81% of the offensive snaps in the loss to Minnesota. Hockenson is fully expected to play this Sunday.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Lions after getting in limited practices on Wednesday and Friday. That’s not a great look, but HC Zac Taylor said Friday morning that Mixon “should get a full workload” this weekend. RB Samaje Perine remains on the COVID list as of Friday afternoon, leaving RBs Chris Evans and Trayveon Williams behind Mixon on the depth chart.

Titans WR A.J. Brown said in a Friday press conference that he expects to remain on a snap count in Monday night's game vs. the Bills. Brown played 64% of the offensive snaps in his return last week -- but was in a route on 89% of pass plays. As long as that latter number stays in that range, Brown is safe to keep in fantasy lineups.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Packers. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. A fantasy dud even before this injury, Robinson is better off on fantasy benches this week.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) is out for this weekend's game vs. the Vikings. It looks like he suffered a setback this week after missing practice on Thursday and Friday, but we'll look for further updates on his status. RB Chuba Hubbard gets another start on Sunday. He tallied 13 carries and 2 targets in negative game script in Week 4 and 24 carries and 6 targets with more positive script last week.

Update: HC Matt Rhule claimed Friday that McCaffrey didn't suffer a setback and added that he's "hopeful" McCaffrey will be back for Week 7. We'll see.

Colts HC Frank Reich said Friday that he's "cautiously optimistic" WR T.Y. Hilton (neck) will be able to play vs. the Texans this weekend. It sounds like Hilton has been medically cleared and the team just wants to make sure he's back in game shape. We'll keep an eye on the situation, but Hilton shouldn't be in your Week 6 fantasy plans.

Colts K Rodrigo Blankenship (hip) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Texans. Michael Badgley will kick for Indianapolis in that one and is a fine Week 6 fantasy fill in. The Colts are sporting a big 27-point implied total.

The Dolphins have ruled CB Xavien Howard out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars in London. Howard missed practice this week, listed with shoulder and groin injuries. His absence leaves Miami without 1 of its top 2 corners. That can only help the matchup for Jacksonville WRs Marvin Jones and Laviska Shenault.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (shoulder, hamstring) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars. WR Preston Williams (groin) is listed as questionable, while WR Will Fuller (finger) remains on IR. Jaylen Waddle, Mack Hollins, Albert Wilson and Isaiah Ford are Miami's healthy WRs right now.

Ravens WR Sammy Watkins (thigh) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Chargers. WR Rashod Bateman, meanwhile, is expected to make his NFL debut this weekend, HC John Harbaugh said Friday. OC Greg Roman suggested earlier in the week that Bateman would be on a snap count, so we'd try not to use the rookie in Week 6 fantasy lineups.

Washington RB Antonio Gibson (shin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs. He remained limited in practice this week as he battles that stress fracture in his shin, but Gibson is fully expected to play this weekend. He might even take on an expanded role with all of Washington's WR injuries.

Vikings WRs Justin Jefferson (ankle) and Adam Thielen (foot) aren't listed on the final injury report. Both guys got some time off in practice earlier this week but should be ready to play their usual roles vs. the Panthers on Sunday.

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (ankle) isn't listed on the final injury report. He practiced all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday. That all points to Cook being ready to handle a full workload. It's possible that Minnesota mixes RB Alexander Mattison in a bit more than they were before, but Cook is back to easy RB1 status.

Washington WR Curtis Samuel (groin) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs. He appears to be looking at another multi-week absence. WR Cam Sims (hamstring) has also been ruled out. WR Dyami Brown (knee) is listed as questionable after a limited week of practice. With WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring) also questionable, Adam Humphries, Deandre Carter and Dax Milne are Washington's only healthy WRs. It's obviously a concern for QB Taylor Heinicke.
