Buccaneers DE Jason Pierre-Paul (knee, shoulder) is active for today's game against the Falcons after arriving questionable. DE Carl Nassib is inactive, as expected. A shoulder injury rendered him doubtful.
Buccaneers DE Jason Pierre-Paul (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. He has played through multiple questionable tags this season, and we'd bet on him playing in the finale. DE Carl Nassib, on the other hand, is doubtful for Sunday because of a shoulder injury.
The Buccaneers will face the Giants on Sunday without OLB Lavonte David (MCL sprain), S Justin Evans (toe) and DE Vinny Curry (ankle). The 1st 2 are starter-level IDP options when healthy. We wouldn't bother chasing their backups. Curry hasn't been an IDP factor, but Carl Nassib has delivered recently amid Curry's inconsistent availability. Nassib has tallied 4 sacks and 6 total QB hits over the past 4 games. He's questionable for Sunday's game as well with an elbow issue but put in limited practice Thursday and a full Friday workout after sitting Wednesday. If Nassib's active Sunday, he'll be an upside option in DL2 territory.
Browns DE Carl Nassib suffered a broken hand in Sunday's loss to the Ravens and could miss multiple games. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the rookie will have surgery, and then doctors will assess how long he'll miss. Nassib had started well after a strong preseason. A bad Cleveland D will only be worse without him on the field.
The Browns spent their 1st pick of Round 3 in the NFL Draft on DE Carl Nassib. At 6'6 and 272 pounds, Nassib seemed to project as more of a 4-3 DE, so it'll be interesting to see whether Cleveland puts him at end or OLB. That'll probably matter more for his position designation in fantasy than his actual stat outlook. Nassib's 15.5 sacks in his lone starting season at Penn State makes him an intriguing edge player.
