Shark Bites

Browns QB Baker Mayfield left Sunday's game against the Seahawks to get an x-ray on his left hip. He was able to return but was clearly operating at less than 100% the rest of the way. We'll keep an eye on this, but Mayfield and the Browns get a well-timed Week 7 bye.

Jaguars TE Geoff Swaim exited in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Saints to get checked for a concussion and didn't return. We'll see whether he was diagnosed with a concussion, but it seems that way. Jacksonville lost TE James O'Shaughnessy to a torn ACL last week and is still waiting for rookie TE Josh Oliver to return from a hamstring injury. Seth DeValve finished out Sunday's game as the lead TE.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson suffered a foot injury in the 2nd half of Sunday's game in Miami and is officially questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one.

Dolphins QB Josh Rosen was benched in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Redskins after completing 15 of 25 passes for 85 scoreless yards and 2 INTs. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is in the game for Miami. We'll see who they go with in Week 7 in Buffalo -- but continue to stay far, far away from the situation in fantasy football.

Cardinals LBs Haason Reddick (shoulder) and Terrell Suggs (back) are active for today's game against the Falcons. So both are in play for your IDP lineups if you were waiting for them.

2:10pm EDT 10/13/19

Cowboys Randall Cobb (hip, back) is inactive for today’s game against the Jets. His absence opens up a few extra looks for Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and Jason Witten.

2:10pm EDT 10/13/19

49ers TE George Kittle (groin) is active for today’s game against the Rams. He popped up on the injury report on Friday, and ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this morning that there's "some concern about whether [Kittle] will be able to finish the game.” There’s obviously increased risk here, but Kittle still sits 4th in our Week 6 TE Rankings.

2:10pm EDT 10/13/19

Rams RB Todd Gurley (quad) is officially inactive for today’s game against the 49ers. He has a “chance” to return for Week 7, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said this morning. Malcolm Brown is expected to serve as Los Angeles’ feature back today, with Darrell Henderson — and potentially John Kelly — spelling him.

Cardinals RB David Johnson (back) is active for today’s game against the Falcons. The back issue obviously adds risk to his Week 6 outlook. Arizona might scale back his volume a bit, and there’s a chance the back locks up on him again. But D.J. retains RB1 upside in this plus matchup.

Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Falcons. He put in 3 limited practices this week, so we’re tentatively expecting him back for Week 7. WR Damiere Byrd (hamstring) is active.

Seahawks TE Will Dissly injured his left leg in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game in Cleveland and had to be helped off the field by a couple of trainers. Dissly missed most of last season with a right knee injury. We'll update his status when we learn more.

Update: The injury is to Dissly's Achilles and he's been ruled out for the game. This is likely a season-ender.

12:10pm EDT 10/13/19

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) is inactive for today's game against the Browns. C.J. Prosise will step back in as Seattle's #2 RB -- but Chris Carson should be in for another monster workload.

Dolphins S Reshad Jones (ankle) is active for today's game against Washington. He played through a "questionable" designation in Week 4 as well -- before the bye -- and played a full game. Jones should be in IDP lineups for Week 6. Miami's top CB, Xavien Howard, is inactive with a knee injury. That helps the outlook for lead Washington WR Terry McLaurin.

Chiefs LB Anthony Hitchens (groin) is inactive for today's game against the Texans. His absence pushes Ben Niemann into the starting lineup.

Texans CB Johnathan Joseph (hamstring) is inactive for today's game against the Chiefs. His absence shouldn't alter the offensive outlook for Kansas City. Joseph has been the league's most targeted corner this season and has been allowing lots of yardage. Joseph didn't appear on the injury report until Friday, so it looks like a late-week hamstring injury.

11:10am EDT 10/13/19

Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey (back) is inactive for today's game against the Saints. It'll be his 3rd straight missed game since the Thursday night win over the Titans that followed Ramsey's trade request. Ramsey's absence can only help a matchup that was already positive for Teddy Bridgewater and Saints receivers.

Browns starting CBs Denzel Ward and Greedy Williams are inactive for today's game against the Seahawks. That marks the 4th straight game both players will have missed with hamstring injuries.

Ravens ILB Patrick Onwuasor (ankle) is inactive for today's game against the Bengals. That figures to get both Chris Board and Kenny Young back into the defensive rotation. Board played just 1 defensive snap last week, and Young was a healthy scratch. So neither makes for a safe IDP bet. Josh Bynes -- who signed with the team last week and then played more than 70% of the snaps in his 1st game -- might become a full-time player this week. Bynes carries attractive upside for IDP lineups.

Bengals S Shawn Williams (thigh) is active for today's game against the Ravens. He barely practiced this week while dealing with the injury and carries re-injury risk into the game, but he also figures to be busy. Consider the risk-reward as you decide whether to include Williams in your IDP lineup.

11:10am EDT 10/13/19

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Jaguars. He tweaked his ankle on Thursday and didn’t practice on Friday. But Kamara participated in Saturday’s walkthrough — and we haven’t heard that he’ll be limited today. He remains a must-start in season-long league vs. a Jacksonville defense that just got smoked by Christian McCaffrey last week.
