Shark Bites

Browns DT Larry Ogunjobi (biceps) is active for today's game against the Panthers. Ogunjobi is just a low-level IDP candidate.

Saints TE Dan Arnold is inactive for today's game against the Bucs. He wasn't on the injury report, so it looks like he's a healthy scratch. That's a surprise after Arnold's role had grown in recent weeks. His absence leaves Josh Hill and Ben Watson at TE. Neither is a reliable fantasy play.

Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) is inactive for today's game against the Colts. He was activated this week but evidently isn't ready to contribute yet. Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue will continue to serve as Houston's top 2 RBs.

Dolphins WR Danny Amendola (knee) is active for today’s game against the Patriots. He’s a low-end PPR option.

Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (toe) is active for today’s game against the Bills. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, so don’t expect him to be close to 100%. Crowell is a shaky RB3 play.

Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Colts. He’s reportedly aiming for a Week 15 return. DeAndre Hopkins and Demaryius Thomas will again serve as Houston’s top 2 WRs today.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Texans. He only got in a limited practice on Friday and won’t be at 100% today. That adds some risk to Hilton’s outlook, but he remains a high-upside WR2.

Falcons K Matt Bryant (back) is active for today’s game against the Packers. He was added to the injury report on Friday and limited in practice, so he comes with elevated risk in fantasy lineups.

Ravens QB Joe Flacco (hip) is inactive for today’s game against the Chiefs. That makes QB Lamar Jackson a safer fantasy play.

Colts HC Frank Reich told NFL Network's James Palmer that WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) will play against the Texans today. The decision was made before pregame warmups, so it seems like Hilton's shoulder is in better shape than originally thought. He belongs in fantasy lineups as a high-upside WR2.

Steelers RB James Conner could remain sidelined for next weekend's game against the Patriots, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Conner didn't practice at all this week and will be re-evaluated on Monday. We'll see what Pittsburgh's Conner-less backfield looks like against the Raiders today. It's worth noting that Rapoport said RB Jaylen Samuels will get the "bulk of the carries."

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.

Vikings MLB Eric Kendricks is questionable for Monday night's game against the Seahawks with a rib injury. He missed practice Thursday and Friday before returning to a limited Saturday workout. The team expects him to play against Seattle, though. HC Mike Zimmer told the Pioneer Press that Kendricks "will be fine." Plan to have Kendricks available for your IDP lineups. We'll confirm his status Monday evening.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup turned up questionable after sitting out Friday's practice with an illness. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Gallup is expected to play against the Eagles, though. Gallup's not a high-level fantasy option, but there's upside against a tattered Philly defense.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Texans WR Keke Coutee expects to sit out today's game against the Colts to rest his injured hamstring. "Only a great workout pregame would change that," according to Rapoport. Coutee's absence would raise the target floor for Texans WR Demaryius Thomas.

The Jets expect RB Isaiah Crowell to play today against the Bills despite a toe injury that has him questionable, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Crowell only put in a limited Friday practice after missing the previous 2 days. The injury obviously adds downside risk to a guy who hasn't been giving fantasy owners much anyway. Avoid him if you can.

The Raiders expect RB Doug Martin (knee) to play through his questionable tag in today's game against the Steelers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Martin's not an attractive play, but he has at least averaged 57.7 rushing yards and 74.5 total yards over the past 6 weeks since taking over the job.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (ankle) is questionable for Monday night's game against the Vikings. He wasn't on the injury report on Thursday or Friday -- then he was added on Saturday but listed as a full participant in practice. We'll look for an update on the rookie's status, but he shouldn't be in your Week 14 fantasy plans.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll labeled WR Doug Baldwin (hip) a game-time decision for Monday night's tilt with the Vikings. Carroll also said that Baldwin's hip injury is related to his previous groin issue. The late kickoff obviously puts fantasy owners in a tough spot. You need to have a viable alternative if you're hoping to use Baldwin -- and the only one potentially available would be David Moore. Even if Baldwin ends up active, he'll be a risky WR3.

The Giants have ruled WR Odell Beckham out for Sunday’s game at Washington. Beckham shows up on the Friday injury report as a limited participant after sustaining a quad bruise. The team today determined that he won’t be able to play. That obviously raises the target ceilings for WR Sterling Shepard and TE Evan Engram, while also lowering the fantasy floor for QB Eli Manning. Fortunately, he didn’t look attractive for lineups anyway. The loss of 1 of the Giants’ 2 best players also raises the floor for the Washington defense, which is a decent streaming option.
