Shark Bites

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport would consider it a "major surprise" if Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) doesn't play against the Texans today, "based on his history and the importance of the game." Hilton is officially a game-time decision and won't be close to 100% if he suits up. That obviously adds risk to his fantasy stock. But there's also big upside against a Houston squad that he usually torches.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Texans. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. HC Frank Reich said he’s “feeling somewhat optimistic” about Hilton’s status but added that he’ll be a game-time decision. The good news for fantasy owners is that we’ll find out whether he’s active by noon ET. If he suits up, Hilton will be worth using in most fantasy lineups as a WR2 with upside.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) and TE Eric Ebron (back, illness) remained sidelined on Thursday. Both guys missed practice last Wednesday but returned on Thursday. The Athletic's Stephen Holder believes that it was the illness that kept Ebron out today. Holder also expects Hilton to play against the Texans this weekend. We'll get another update on both guys tomorrow.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) and TE Eric Ebron (back) did not practice on Wednesday. Neither guy practiced last Wednesday before playing their usual roles against the Jaguars. Both should be fine for this Sunday's game vs. the Texans, but check back tomorrow for another update.

Colts LB Darius Leonard is active for today’s game against the Jaguars despite dealing with shoulder and knee issues. Don’t even think about removing him from IDP lineups.

11:12am EST 12/2/18

Colts RB Marlon Mack (concussion) is active for today’s game against the Jaguars. He’ll continue to operate as Indy’s lead ball-carrier but is a low-end RB2 in the tough matchup.

The Colts expect RB Marlon Mack to play today against the Jaguars, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Mack put in full practices Thursday and Friday but will need to gain clearance to complete the concussion protocol before he can take the field. We'll update his status closer to game time.

Colts LB Darius Leonard is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars with shoulder and knee injuries. He put in a full practice Friday, though, after progressing from a missed practice Wednesday to a limited Thursday workout. We'd bet on Leonard playing at Jacksonville, but we'll check his status Sunday morning.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (concussion) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Jaguars. He put in full practices and Thursday and Friday and just needs to gain clearance from an independent neurologist. Mack can be penciled into fantasy lineups for now. Just check back around noon ET on Sunday to make sure he’s active.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (groin) isn’t listed on the final injury report. He didn’t practice on Wednesday and was limited on Thursday and Friday, so it looks like he’s not quite at 100%. But Hilton remains a solid fantasy play in the red-hot Colts passing game.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (concussion) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. He's now trending toward getting cleared for this weekend's game against the Jaguars. An active Mack will remain the Colts' lead ball-carrier and a fine RB2 in fantasy lineups.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (groin) and TE Eric Ebron (back) returned to practice on Thursday. Hilton was limited; Ebron a full-go. Both guys are on track to play against the Jaguars this weekend.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (concussion) was back on the practice field on Thursday. He'll likely be listed as limited and still needs to gain final clearance -- but this at least gives him a shot to play against the Jaguars on Sunday. We'll get another update tomorrow.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. He still has multiple stages of the protocol to pass through and isn't looking like a good bet to play against the Jaguars this weekend. That'd leave the backfield to Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (groin) and TE Eric Ebron (back) did not practice on Wednesday. Both guys appeared to make it out of last weekend's game against the Dolphins healthy, so we're guessing this is more of a rest day. But check back tomorrow for another update.

As expected, Chiefs OLB Justin Houston (hamstring) is inactive for today's game against the Browns. It'll be his 4th straight missed contest. Breeland Speaks will get another start in his place and carries nice upside in the matchup.

Chiefs OLB Justin Houston is "considered very unlikely to play" against the Browns today, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. Houston returned to practice this week after missing the past 3 games but doesn't sound ready for IDP lineups. If he's inactive, Breeland Speaks becomes an upside option for IDP owners.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid told reporters early Wednesday that he expected OLB Justin Houston to return to practice after missing 3 games with a hamstring injury. "He's going to do a little bit today but just very, very limited," Reid said. "But he is making progress." The team then listed Houston as a non-participant in the official practice report. So if Houston did anything, it couldn't have been much. It's nice that the veteran pass-rusher is making some progress, but he doesn't look like a good bet for this week's upside matchup with the Browns. If Houston remains out, OLB Breeland Speaks would be an option in deeper IDP leagues. Speaks has delivered 17 total pressures over K.C.'s past 4 games, starting with the contest Houston left early.

Colts S Clayton Geathers (neck) and DE Jabaal Sheard (abdomen) are active for today's game against the Raiders. Each guy entered the day questionable but is OK to use in IDP lineups.

Colts K Adam Vinatieri (groin) is active for today’s game against the Raiders. He got in a full practice on Friday, but Vinatieri still comes with more risk than usual in Week 8 fantasy lineups.
