Ravens CB Marcus Peters (thigh) is active for today’s game against the Eagles. He entered the day questionable but played through the same issue last week and didn’t miss a snap in the blowout win over the Bengals. Peters is good to go if you have him in your IDP plans.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is out for Monday night's game against the Bills. That locks WR Mecole Hardman into a top 3 role and makes him an upside WR3 in fantasy lineups.

NFL Network reports that RB Le'Veon Bell has decided to sign with the Chiefs. He joins a backfield led by Clyde Edwards-Helaire with minimal contributions from others so far. CEH has put up nice stats so far but rates below-average in both rushing and receiving DVOA, according to Football Outsiders. We'll see how big a role HC Andy Reid has in mind for the veteran, but it's likely significant given that Bell chose the Chiefs over other suitors. His arrival will lower the volume ceiling for Edwards-Helaire, though we'd still favor the rookie as Kansas City's top fantasy back.

After reportedly failing to trade RB Le'Veon Bell, the Jets have released the disgruntled veteran. The move leaves $15 million in dead cap space this season plus another $4 million under the 2021 cap, so it's pretty clear the team is just ready to end this toxic relationship. The RB depth chart now reads: Frank Gore -- La'Mical Perine -- Ty Johnson. Josh Adams also sits on the practice squad. We'll see if the Jets make any other backfield moves. Gore handled 72% of Jets RB carries during the 3 games Bell missed earlier this season, though just 29% of the RB targets. The most targeted Jets RB during that span, Kalen Ballage, has since been released. We'll see about the target split. Expect Perine to factor in more this time around. We'll also see which team decides to take a shot on Bell. We'd certainly bet he'll find another suitor.

The Jets are trying to trade RB Le'Veon Bell, according to the New York Daily News' Manish Mehta. The report comes as absolutely no surprise. The trick, of course, is finding a team interested in trading for Bell, who has a guaranteed $8.5 million base salary for 2020. The Jets tried to trade Bell at last year's deadline and found no takers. A move out of New York would likely be an upgrade for Bell's fantasy outlook, but we're not optimistic about it happening.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins is expected to miss time with his hamstring injury, "possibly a couple weeks," ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Watkins' absence will mean more playing time for WR Mecole Hardman, who's posted 65% and 69% snap rates with Watkins exiting early in Weeks 2 and 5. Hardman will be on the WR3 radar for next Monday night's game vs. the Bills.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins pulled up with a right hamstring injury in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Raiders. Don't expect to see him back on the field today. Watkins' absence should open up more playing time for WR Mecole Hardman.

Ravens CB Marcus Peters (thigh) and DE Derek Wolfe (elbow) are active for today's game against the Bengals. Each entered the day questionable but are fine to use at appropriate IDP levels. Each player presents a boom-bust profile against a Bengals offense with upside in both coverage and pressure stats.

Jets RB Le’Veon Bell (hamstring) is officially active for today’s game against the Cardinals. Consider him a RB3 or Flex play in his 1st action since Week 1.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews (thigh) is active for today’s game against the Bengals. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and limited again in Friday's practice, but we never heard any concern over his status. Andrews remains a must-start.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown (knee) is active for today’s game against the Bengals. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, so the knee shouldn’t be an issue.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (knee) is active for today’s game against the Bengals. He missed practice time this week with a knee problem and an illness, but neither seemed like a serious issue. Keep him locked into fantasy lineups.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that Ravens CB Marcus Peters (questionable, thigh) is "ready to rock" for today's game against the Bengals. He'll be a boom-bust option for IDP lineups.

The Ravens expect QB Lamar Jackson (knee, illness), TE Mark Andrews (thigh) and WR Marquise Brown (knee) to play against the Bengals today. All were listed as questionable, but you should expect to have them in your fantasy football lineups. We'll confirm their statuses with the inactives come out.

Ravens DE Derek Wolfe is officially questionable vs. the Bengals on Sunday, listed with an elbow injury. He put in full workouts Wednesday and Thursday before missing Friday. The elbow issue is a carryover from the previous week, but HC John Harbaugh revealed Friday that Wolfe missed the win over Washington because of COVID-like symptoms with the DE and his wife. Wolfe did not turn out to have COVID and should be ready to play against Cincinnati. We'll confirm his status Sunday morning.

Ravens CB Marcus Peters (thigh) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Peters put in limited practices Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday. We'll check his status Sunday morning.

The Ravens list WR Marquise Brown (knee) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, so he's clearly on track to play. But it's at least notable because it's the 1st time Brown is on the injury report this season. He's a risk/reward Week 5 fantasy play.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews (thigh) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Bengals. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and limited again in Friday's practice. We haven't heard anything to suggest that Andrews is in danger of missing this one, but check back around noon ET on Sunday to make sure Andrews is active.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Bengals. He sat on Wednesday with a knee issue and Thursday with an illness — both reportedly minor — and then put in a full workout on Friday. Pencil Jackson into Week 5 fantasy lineups for now. Just check back at noon ET on Sunday to make sure he’s active.

The Jets had a player test positive for COVID on Friday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. All players and personnel have been sent home for now. This puts the timing and viability of this week's Jets-Cardinals game in question. Stay tuned.
