Shark Bites

The Cowboys have agreed to trade DE Everson Griffen to the Lions. COVID testing and restrictions will keep him from being available to play against the Colts this Sunday, but Griffen upgrades the pass rush for a team that clearly considers itself a contender. He figures to grow his playing time, which has only cracked 60% once this season. DE Romeo Okwara will likely be the primary playing-time loser in Detroit. Back in Dallas, Aldon Smith has seen his playing time dip the past 2 weeks. There's a chance that rebounds, but Tyrone Crawford might be the more direct beneficiary on the playing time front. If that's the case, then there's no IDP impact. Crawford sports 5 total tackles and 1 QB hit (no sacks) to date.

As suspected, Jets WR Breshad Perriman is in the concussion protocol. The wideout left Sunday's game after taking a shot to the head from Bills S Micah Hyde. We'll see how soon Perriman can return to the field.

Jets WR Breshad Perriman took a big hit from Bills S Micah Hyde late in Sunday's loss and appeared to be briefly unconscious. There's been no update yet from the team, but Perriman likely has a concussion. We'll update his status when we know more.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Lions plan to expand rookie RB D'Andre Swift's role today against the Falcons. That makes sense after Swift saw a season-high in touches last week by a wide margin. Rapoport says Detroit still plans to start Peterson, so expect the veteran to remain significantly involved. But this report only makes Swift a comfier start for Week 7 lineups. Give Swift a look as you build your DFS lineups, too. He's projected for single-digit ownership despite last week's big numbers.

Jets WR Breshad Perriman (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Dolphins. Jamison Crowder remains the only Jets WR that should be in fantasy lineups.

Jets WR Breshad Perriman (ankle) is expected to play against the Dolphins today, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. It'll be Perriman's first action since Week 2. We'll see how big a role he plays, but he's certainly not a Week 6 fantasy option.

Jets WR Breshad Perriman (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins after a limited week of practice. He's been sidelined since Week 2. Perriman's return would likely knock WR Jeff Smith out of his every-down role. Jamison Crowder is the only Jets WR that should be in fantasy lineups.

Seahawks CB Quinton Dunbar (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings. He got back to limited practice this week after missing the past 2 games. Dunbar looks risky as an IDP option, and doesn't come with a high ceiling in the matchup. Try to wait another week, even if he's active. We'll check his status Sunday evening.

Seahawks CB Quinton Dunbar (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Cowboys. DE Benson Mayowa (groin) is active but a low-level IDP option at best. There is upside with Cowboys LT Tyron Smith out, though, if you’re looking for down-the-list help.

Jets WR Breshad Perriman is considered "week to week" after spraining his left ankle in Sunday's loss to the 49ers, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. That likely means the wideout will miss at least Sunday's game against the Colts. The Jets also watched WR Chris Hogan leave Sunday's game with a rib injury, but NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports there was no fracture and that Hogan "should be OK moving forward." Rookie WR Denzel Mims (hamstring) is on IR for at least another 2 games, and WR Jamison Crowder missed Week 2 with his own hamstring injury. That left Hogan, Braxton Berrios and Josh Malone as the Jets' top 3 in targets vs. San Francisco. Yuck. We'll see who's available heading into Week 3.

Jets WR Breshad Perriman was knocked out of Sunday's game against the 49ers with an ankle injury. We'll look for an update on the severity.

Lions LB Jamie Collins got ejected in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Bears after he made contact with an official. Keep that in mind as you look at the LB options for your IDP roster and lineup heading into Week 2. Collins should be an every-down LB for Detroit ... when he doesn't take himself out.

Lions D’Andre Swift (hip) isn’t listed on the final Week 1 injury report after putting in a full practice on Friday. The rookie will make his NFL debut against the Bears this weekend — but it’s completely uncertain how much work he’ll get alongside Kerryon Johnson and Adrian Peterson.

Jets WRs Breshad Perriman (knee) and Denzel Mims put in full practices on Wednesday. So they're both on track to play against the Bills this weekend, but neither is a recommended fantasy starter after missing most of camp.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift (hip) was limited in Wednesday's practice. We're expecting him to play against the Bears this weekend, but the rookie might have a smaller role than expected after missing of chunk of training camp.

Raiders WR Tyrell Williams will undergo surgery on the torn labrum in his shoulder and has been placed on IR, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. So Williams is out for the 2020 campaign. That opens the door for rookie WR Bryan Edwards to start at the 'X' spot for Las Vegas. He's a nice late-round flier in fantasy drafts. Edwards figures to be joined by Henry Ruggs and Hunter Renfrow in 3-WR sets.

Jets WR Breshad Perriman has been sidelined for over a week with what the team is calling knee swelling. It's unclear if he'll be available for Week 1, but Perriman won't be a fantasy option. The Jets are also still without rookie WR Denzel Mims (hamstring). Expect a lot of WR Jamison Crowder and TE Chris Herndon in the opener against Buffalo.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift will be a limited participant in Monday's practice, HC Matt Patricia said. The rookie was sidelined for about a week-and-a-half with a leg injury. It looks like he'll be available for Week 1, but the missed time might mean a smaller role than expected out of the gate.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift continues to miss practice with a leg injury suffered on August 20. The rookie got off to a strong start in camp -- but the missed time lately figures to hurt his chances at a big early-season role. We'll see when Swift is able to get back on the field. He remains a fine pick if you can land him in Round 6 or later.

Raiders WR Tyrell Williams has a torn labrum in his shoulder, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Williams will "try to play through it after rehabbing for a few weeks," Rapoport adds. It's a commendable move by Williams but obviously adds a ton of risk to his fantasy outlook. We just dropped him in the WR rankings. The biggest beneficiary of Williams' absence would likely be rookie WR Bryan Edwards, who's had a good camp so far. He's an intriguing late-round flier.
