Stephon Gilmore Fantasy Football News 2020

Patriots LB Ja'Whaun Bentley (groin), DB Kyle Dugger (toe) and CB Stephon Gilmore (hand) are active for today's game against the Cardinals. Each hit the day questionable. None is a strong IDP candidate, but they're available if you've had them in your plans.

Basically any questionable Patriots defensive player in play for IDP use is active today vs. Houston. That includes CB Stephon Gilmore (knee), LB Ja'Whaun Bentley (groin), DE Deatrich Wise (knee, hand), DE John Simon (elbow) and DE Lawrence Guy (shoulder, elbow, knee).

Let's just list the Patriots defensive players who are questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans:

LB Ja'Whaun Bentley (groin)
DE Deatrich Wise (knee, hand)
DE John Simon (elbow)
DE Lawrence Guy (shoulder, elbow, knee)
CB Stephon Gilmore (knee)

Gilmore sounds like he expects to return after missing the past 3 games. None of these guys makes for a strong IDP play, but we'll check all their statuses Sunday morning.

The multitude of questionable Patriots for Sunday night's game against the Ravens includes DE Deatrich Wise, DE John Simon, LB Ja'Whaun Bentley and CB Stephon Gilmore. None of the 4 saw meaningful changes to their practice participation vs. last week. Gilmore and Bentley missed that game (against the Jets. Wise and Simon played through questionable tags.

The Patriots list a bunch of defensive players as questionable for Monday night's game against the Jets. That includes DE Lawrence Guy (shoulder, elbow, knee), CB Stephon Gilmore (knee), DE Shilique Calhoun (knee), LB Ja'Whaun Bentley (groin), DE Deatrich Wise (knee, hand), CB J.C. Jackson (knee) and DE John Simon (elbow). None of those guys is a high-level IDP option, so they're likely not worth waiting on in setting your fantasy lineup. But we'll see who's in and who's out Monday evening.

The Patriots have downgraded CB Stephon Gilmore (knee) to out for today's game against the Bills. That improves the matchup for Buffalo's lead wideout, Stefon Diggs.

Patriots CBs Stephon Gilmore and J.C. Jackson are both questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills after suffering knee injuries during the practice week. Gilmore's injury happened Thursday. An MRI came back negative, but he sat out Friday's practice. Jackson left Friday's workout early with his ailment after not showing up on the injury report the previous 2 days. Missing either or both would obviously hurt an already struggling defense and improve the matchup for Buffalo WRs Stefon Diggs and/or John Brown -- as well as QB Josh Allen. DE John Simon is also questionable with a shoulder issue that limited him in practice all week.

Patriots CB Stephon Gilmore left Thursday's practice after he "tweaked" a knee, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The injury was apparently deemed minor after an MRI, but it's not yet clear whether it will keep him out of Sunday's game against the Bills. Losing Gilmore would improve the matchup for Buffalo WR Stefon Diggs.

Patriots CB Stephon Gilmore has tested positive for COVID, ESPN's Field Yates reports. Gilmore joins QB Cam Newton and practice squad DT Bill Murray on New England's COVID list. The Patriots' game against the Broncos this Sunday is now seemingly in jeopardy. Stay tuned.

The Bills have placed CB Stephon Gilmore on IR with a shoulder injury. That takes arguably the #1 corner away from their defense, though Pro Football Focus has graded rookie Ronald Darby among the league's top performers at the position. Either way, it can only weaken a defense that has already allowed 20+ points in 4 straight weeks and ranks middle of the league or worse in many pass-D categories.

The Bills have ruled out DT Marcell Dareus (knee) and CB Stephon Gilmore (concussion) for today's finale against the Patriots. Each player had been listed as doubtful. Losing 2 of their best defensive players takes some DFS sleeper appeal away from a Buffalo defense that figures to face Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo for half of today's contest and quite possibly see no TE Rob Gronkowski. The Bills still hold some contrarian value in a tournament lineup after already limiting Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers in recent weeks.

Bills CB Stephon Gilmore (groin) is inactive for today's game against the Bears.  He'll be replaced by Corey Graham.  It's a significant matchup upgrade for QB Jay Cutler and WRs Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery.

The QB injuries grabbed the headlines in Buffalo, but the team also quietly announced that it will miss CB Stephon Gilmore for a while.  The 2nd-year cover man will be out 6-8 weeks because of a fractured wrist.  It's a big blow to an already questionable secondary and defense hoping to improve.  Gilmore has the makings of a long-term building block. Leodis McKelvin and Crezdon Butler are expected to start at CB until Gilmore returns.  If the position struggles, Aaron Williams could slide back from safety -- where he projects to start next to Jairus Byrd.
