Shark Bites

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (migraines) did not practice on Tuesday after being limited on Monday. HC Ben McAdoo said Shepard is “not feeling well." He now seems unlikely to play against the Redskins on Thursday night. That'll leave Roger Lewis, Tavarres King and Travis Rudolph as New York's top 3 WRs.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (migraines) was listed as limited in Monday's light practice. We'll take the fact that he was out there at all as a good sign, although his status for Thursday night's game against the Redskins remains uncertain. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard is inactive for today’s game against the Chiefs. He’s dealing with migraines, which could cost him time beyond Week 11. It’s a situation we’ll need to monitor closely. Shepard’s absence today leaves Roger Lewis and Tavarres King as the Giants’ top 2 WRs. Both are just fantasy fliers. TE Evan Engram is a strong bet to lead the team in targets.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard was added to the injury report on Saturday as questionable with an illness. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Shepard is dealing with migraines and is in legitimate danger of missing today's game against the Chiefs. We'll find out his status by noon ET. Even if active, though, this news adds risk to his Week 11 outlook.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter calls Shepard "unlikely" to play. His absence would leave Roger Lewis and Tavarres King as New York's top 2 WRs. TE Evan Engram would be the best target bet.

The Browns officially added WR Corey Coleman to the active roster on Thursday. He'll play this weekend for the 1st time since breaking his hand in mid-September. Coleman should quickly re-emerge as the top option in Cleveland's passing attack. His problems are shoddy QB play and the league's toughest remaining WR schedule. Don't consider him more than a WR3 the rest of the way -- and a WR4 in this week's brutally tough matchup against Jacksonville.

Giants DE Olivier Vernon (ankle) and LB Jonathan Casillas (neck) are active for today's game against the 49ers. Use them in your IDP lineups if you waited to this point.

The Giants have ruled out LBs B.J. Goodson (ankle), Keenan Robinson (quad) and Devon Kennard (quad) for Sunday's game against the 49ers. LB Jonathan Casillas (neck) and DE Olivier Vernon (ankle) are questionable. Both players put in limited practices all week after missing multiple games. Casillas said early in the week that he expected to play. We'll update their statuses Sunday afternoon.

Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) has been designated 1 of the team's to-return-from-IR players and will practice on Monday. It means that he's on track to return when 1st eligible in Week 11. Coleman figures to quickly re-emerge as Cleveland's top WR. The problems are that he'll be playing in the league's 22nd-ranked passing offense and face a brutal schedule that includes 4 top-10 WR defenses among the last 6 games.

The Giants have ruled DE Olivier Vernon (ankle) and MLB B.J. Goodson (ankle) out for Sunday's game against the Rams. Goodson has seen his playing time dip anyway with the return of Keenan Robinson and should be dropped from most IDP rosters. The Giants team D is not in play for most fantasy situations this week either.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) isn't listed on the final Week 9 injury report. He practiced all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday. It doesn't look like that ankle will be an issue, making Shepard safe to get into fantasy lineups vs. the Rams.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) was upgraded to full participation on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. He's set to return for this weekend's game against the Rams -- and it looks like that ankle won't be an issue. Shepard is a strong target bet in a passing game with very little behind him and TE Evan Engram.

Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) is active for tonight’s game against the Steelers. He put in 3 limited practices this week and won’t be at 100% for this one. Throw in a matchup with the league’s #1 WR defense, and Tate looks like just a WR3 for Week 8.

Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) is "pushing to play" against the Steelers tonight, and it "could happen," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Signs have been pointing to Tate being active for the past few days, but we won't know for sure until 7 pm ET tonight. That -- plus a matchup with the league's top-ranked WR defense -- would make us want to avoid him if possible.

Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Steelers after a limited week of practice. He admitted to uncertainty about his status all week, although insider Kyle Meinke believes "all signs point to" Tate playing. The late kickoff makes this a tricky situation for fantasy owners, though. We'll look for an update on his status on Sunday morning.

Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) was limited again in Thursday's practice. It's encouraging that he was able to get back out there after returning to the field yesterday, but Tate's status for Sunday night's game against the Steelers remains uncertain. Hopefully we'll learn more tomorrow.

Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) was on the field for the start of Wednesday's practice, according to inside Dave Birkett. Tate will likely be listed as limited, but it's a surprise that he's out there at all. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that Tate would miss "a few weeks" after going down back in Week 6. It now looks like he has at least a shot at playing against the Steelers on Sunday night. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Seahawks. He practiced this week and should be ready to return after the Week 8 bye.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) will play against the Giants today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Shepard was limited in practice all week, and it's unclear how close to 100% he'll be today. That makes him a risky Week 7 fantasy option.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks. He was limited in practice all week. The game doesn’t kick off until 4:25 pm ET, so hopefully we’ll learn more Sunday morning. If active, Shepard will be a risky fantasy play at less than 100% in a tough matchup.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) was back on the practice field Wednesday. It gives him a shot to play against the Seahawks this weekend. Shepard's slot role would keep him away from CB Richard Sherman, making him a viable WR3. We'll continue to track his progress.
