Shark Bites

Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hip) did not practice on Thursday. That follows a limited workout on Wednesday. Either Golladay suffered a setback or this was a planned day off. We'll get another update tomorrow, but fantasy owners should plan on not having Golladay in Week 11 lineups at this point.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hip) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. That gives him a chance to play against the Panthers this weekend. We'll monitor Golladay's progress over the next few days -- plus QB Matthew Stafford's thumb injury.

Giants WR Darius Slayton suffered a shoulder injury in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Eagles. He headed back to the locker room with trainers and is officially questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one.

Update: Slayton returned in the 2nd quarter.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hip) missed practice all week and is out for Sunday's game vs. Washington. Danny Amendola has actually out-targeted Marvin Jones 24 to 18 in the 3 games Golladay has missed this season.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hip) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. That doesn't bode well for his chances of returning for this weekend's game vs. Washington. We'll update his status again tomorrow, but fantasy owners shouldn't bank on having him in Week 10 fantasy lineups.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Vikings, as expected. He’s considered “week to week.” WR Marvin Hall replaced Golladay last week, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it’s rookie WR Quintez Cephus who moves into the starting lineup this week. Neither guy is a bankable fantasy play. WR Marvin Jones and TE T.J. Hockenson are the 2 best target bets in Detroit.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hip) is not expected to play against the Vikings on Sunday and is considered "week to week," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The IR is a possibility for Golladay, which would knock him out for at least 3 games. We'll keep you updated on Golladay's status as we learn more but would keep him stashed on fantasy benches. WR Marvin Hall stepped in for Golladay in yesterday's loss to the Colts, finishing with 4 catches on 7 targets for 113 yards. He'd still be a flier in Week 9 fantasy lineups. WR Marvin Jones and TE T.J. Hockenson will be the best target bets in Detroit for however long Golladay is out.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay suffered a hip injury and is officially questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Colts. We'll update his status when we know more.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (toe) is active for tonight's game against the Eagles. It'll be his 1st action since Week 2. Shepard is a low-upside fantasy play in New York's struggling offense.

The Giants have placed rookie LB Tae Crowder on IR with the hamstring injury he suffered in Sunday's win over Washington. That will keep the rookie out for at least 3 games. He's not worth holding in IDP leagues. The team filled Crowder's spot on the roster by signing Jabaal Sheard off Jacksonville's practice squad. Sheard will line up at OLB for the Giants but might carry DL eligibility in many IDP leagues. That makes him worth watching. The Giants recently lost starting OLB Lorenzo Carter for the season to an Achilles' tendon tear. Kyler Fackrell has become a full-time player at the position in recent weeks, but Markus Golden has struggled to stay in the lineup. Sheard's addition might also mean that Oshane Ximines will need more time to recover from the shoulder injury that landed him on IR 2 weeks ago.

Giants WR Darius Slayton (foot) was limited in practice this week and is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Eagles. Slayton played through this injury last week, but we saw him limping a couple of times. Don't expect him to be at 100% vs. Philly.

Giants DL Dexter Lawrence (knee) is active for today’s game against Washington. He put in limited practices all week and gets an upside matchup. Lawrence is just a lower-level IDP, though. He sits in DL4 territory in our Week 6 IDP rankings.

Giants WR Darius Slayton (foot) is active for today’s game against Washington. He was limited in practice all week, adding some risk to his Week 6 fantasy profile.

Giants WR Darius Slayton (foot) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against Washington. We’ve heard nothing to suggest that he’s in real danger of missing this one, but the foot issue adds risk to his profile.

The Newark Star-Ledger's Zack Rosenblatt believes Giants WR Sterling Shepard (toe) is "unlikely" to play against Washington on Sunday. He's eligible to come off IR this week, but a Week 7 return looks more likely. Darius Slayton, Golden Tate and Evan Engram will continue to operate as the top 3 options in the Giants' passing game.

The Giants expect WR Sterling Shepard to return to practice this week, according to the team's official website. Shepard missed the past 3 games with a toe injury. HC Joe Judge said he wants to see Shepard practice before determining whether the wideout will be ready to come off IR for Sunday's game against Washington. We'll watch his progress. Even if Shepard doesn't play in Week 6, he's worth a look as a potential Week 6 waiver pickup in leagues that saw him dropped.

Giants S Jabrill Peppers is active for today’s game against the Cowboys. He missed Week 4 with the low-ankle sprain and still carries some risk but is available for IDP lineups if you were planning to use him

Giants S Jabrill Peppers is questionable for Sunday's game at Dallas. He put in limited practices all week after missing last Sunday's game with a low-ankle sprain. The team will continue evaluating him through the weekend before determining his status for the game, according to NorthJersey.com. The 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff Sunday afternoon will make Peppers hard for IDP owners to wait for -- especially with the ankle adding some risk even if he does play. We'll check his status when the inactives come out.

Giants S Jabrill Peppers put in a limited practice Wednesday. That marked progress from Week 4, where he sat out every day with a low-ankle sprain and ultimately missed the game. We'll watch his progress through the week to see if Peppers is ready to return against the Cowboys this Sunday.

Giants DB Julian Love (ankle, knee) is active for today’s game against the Rams. He carries big tackle upside against a strong Rams offense, especially with S Jabrill Peppers out.
