Ezekiel Ansah Fantasy Football News 2019

Seahawks DE Ezekiel Ansah is questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers. Ansah sat out Week 1 following a "questionable" designation. He looks like to make his Seattle debut, however, after putting in full workouts Thursday and Friday. HC Pete Carroll said early in the week that he expected Ansah to be ready for Week 2. The matchup with Pittsburgh is poor for sack upside, so try to hold off before putting Ansah into your IDP lineup.

Seahawks DE Ezekiel Ansah is out for today's game against the Bengals. Ansah was listed on the injury report with the shoulder that had offseason surgery. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says he has been dealing with a groin issue lately, though. Ansah probably shouldn't be in IDP lineups until we see him for at least 1 game.

Seahawks DE Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's opener against the Bengals. Ansah put in limited practices all week and should be ready to play. For how many snaps coming off his shoulder surgery? We'll see. Ansah is a risk-reward option for sack-heavy IDP formats. Rookie DE L.J. Collier is not yet ready to return from his summer ankle injury. He put in limited practices all week, but Seattle has ruled him out agains the Bengals.

The Seahawks don't expect DE Ezekiel Ansah to return to practice until after the start of training camp, HC Pete Carroll said Tuesday, according to ProFootballTalk.com. Ansah has been taking part in walkthroughs to learn the defense, and Carroll says he's working to regain strength in his repaired shoulder -- which is healed. "These six weeks coming up will be crucial, and we have a really specific plan set up for him," Carroll said. "I don't think we'll rush him. There won't be a need to start him up right out of the chutes, and we'll see how he goes in the weeks to follow." IDP owners should be apprehensive with Ansah this summer. He lost 9 games to injury last year and 14 total over the past 3 years.

According to multiple reports, the Seahawks have agreed to terms with former Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah. There's plenty of room for Ansah on a D-line that jettisoned DEs Michael Bennett and Frank Clark over the past 2 offseasons. Ansah joins a group that includes 2019 first-rounder L.J. Collier, 2018 rookie Rasheem Green (a potential DE/DT swing player like Bennett) and some backup/rotational types. Ansah has lingered on the market because of an injured shoulder that will be worth watching through the summer. But Seattle clearly believes he'll be ready to contribute this fall.

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah left Sunday's win over the Cardinals early after re-injuring his right shoulder. It's the same joint that cost him 6 games earlier this season. Dr. David Chao projected from video review that Ansah's "likely" headed for season-ending surgery on the labrum in that shoulder. We'll keep an eye out for an official diagnosis. Romeo Okwara would figure to see his playing time rebound after Ansah's return cut into his snaps.

Update: Ansah is done for the season.

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah and DT Damon Harrison are questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers as each deals with a shoulder injury. Both players put in limited practices all week. Ansah played through questionable tags the past 2 games. We'd bet on him being active again, but he'll need to grow his role before returning to real IDP consideration. Harrison's issue is new, but his participation in practice all week leaves us optimistic. We'll see about his status Sunday morning. Detroit will definitely be without its other starting DT, A'Shawn Robinson, who has been ruled out with an ankle injury.
