Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe) is expected to play against the Falcons tonight, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. We don't know much about the toe injury, but Ingram didn't practice on Tuesday or Wednesday, so it seems like a real issue. There's added risk this week, but fantasy football's #4 RB needs to be in starting lineups if active. We'll find out his official status around 7 pm ET tonight.

Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Falcons. He didn't practice on Tuesday or Wednesday, so it looks like his status is legitimately in question. The good news is that we'll know his official status by 7 pm ET tomorrow. If active, Ingram will remain a must-start in season-long leagues -- albeit with more risk than usual.

The Seahawks expect S Earl Thomas to return for Sunday night's game against the Falcons, HC Pete Carroll told 710 ESPN Radio in Seattle on Monday. Thomas missed the past 2 games with a hamstring injury. We'll keep an eye on his participation and status through the week to see if we can get him into IDP lineups without waiting for the Sunday night inactives.

Seahawks S Earl Thomas (hamstring) is doubtful for Thursday night's game against the Cardinals. That'll leave Bradley McDougald to fill in once again. He played 100% of the snaps in the loss to Washington, logging 5 total tackles (2 solo). The Arizona matchup carries more upside and makes McDougald a fringe IDP starting option for Week 10. Missing Thomas is certainly not good for the Seattle D but doesn't change its status as a starting fantasy unit. Elsewhere on the defense, CB Richard Sherman (Achilles') and DT Sheldon Richardson (oblique) are questionable.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said on 710 ESPN in Seattle on Monday that he doesn't know yet whether S Earl Thomas' hamstring will be ready for Thursday night's game at Arizona. Carroll added that they likely won't know until Thursday whether the veteran will play. If he's active, Thomas will be worth the risk in many IDP lineups, given the turnover upside with Drew Stanton under center for the Cards.

Ravens DT Michael Pierce (illness) is active for today's game against the Titans. Teammates CB Lardarius Webb and CB Jimmy Smith are also playing through "questionable" tags. None is a meaningful IDP option this week.

The Seahawks have ruled S Earl Thomas (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against Washington. That removes a high-upside DB from IDP lineups and obviously dings the Seattle team defense, but the Seahawks remain a strong option against a Washington offense that will likely miss at least of its starting O-linemen. Elsewhere on the defense, S Kam Chancellor (ankle), MLB Bobby Wagner (hamstring), slot CB Jeremy Lane (thigh) and DT Sheldon Richardson (oblique) are all questionable. If all those guys sit out, then things might look a little different. We'll update Chancellor's and Wagner's statuses for IDP owners on Sunday. The others aren't IDP factors. Wagner and Chancellor each put in full practices Friday after sitting out the previous 2 days.

Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) isn’t listed on the final Week 8 injury report and will play against the Bears on Sunday. He got just 21 snaps and 3 targets in his lone appearance this season and can’t be trusted in fantasy lineups right now.

Ravens S Tony Jefferson (ankle), S Eric Weddle (ankle) and OLB Terrell Suggs (knee) are active for tonight's game against the Dolphins. Use them as you normally would in IDP lineups.

Ravens S Tony Jefferson (ankle), S Eric Weddle (ankle) and OLB Terrell Suggs (knee) are questionable for Thursday night's game against the Dolphins. All 3 put in full practices Wednesday and appear on track to play. We'll confirm their statuses Thursday evening.

Ravens DT Brandon Williams (foot) is active today for the 1st time since Week 2. We'll see now how important he is for a run defense that has struggled in 4 games without him but opened the year vs. a pair of bad rush offenses with Williams around. CB Jimmy Smith (Achilles') and DB Lardarius Webb (knee) are also active after entering the day questionable. Neither is much of an IDP option but helps the Baltimore team D.

Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) is officially inactive for today's game against the Packers. His absence makes WR Ted Ginn a more attractive fantasy play in a plus matchup.

ESPN's Dianna Russini reports that Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) will be inactive for today's game against the Packers. Snead made his debut last week and put in 3 limited practices this week, but he evidently suffered a setback at some point. We'll look for updates on his status. Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn and Brandon Coleman will serve as New Orleans' top 3 WRs today.

Saints HC Sean Payton said Wednesday that WR Willie Snead is over his hamstring injury and ready for this weekend's game against the Lions. Snead served a 3-game suspension to open the season and then missed the Dolphins game in London before a Week 5 bye. We're expecting him to step back into a role similar to the one that's propelled him to top 35 PPR finishes both of the past 2 seasons. Snead is worth firing up as a WR3 -- albeit with some risk -- in Week 6 lineups.

Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) is inactive for this morning's game against the Dolphins. It looks like he injured that hamstring in Friday's practice. New Orleans has a Week 5 bye. We'll see if Snead is ready come Week 6. Michael Thomas, Brandon Coleman and Ted Ginn will continue to serve as the Saints' top 3 WRs today.

Saints WR Willie Snead was added to the injury report on Friday with a hamstring. He was limited in practice and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. The good news is that we'll find out Snead's official status by 8 am ET, but the hammy will obviously add risk to his outlook if he's active.

The Ravens have ruled out DT Brandon Williams (foot) for Sunday's game against the Jaguars in London.

Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon has been suspended 2 games for violating the leagues' substance abuse policy. This is in addition to his previous 4-game ban for PEDs. Dixon will serve all 6 games on IR this season and be eligible for the start of 2018. We'll see if Baltimore sticks by him. Dixon obviously has off-the-field issues to work out but turns just 24 in January.

Saints WR Willie Snead received a 3-game suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. Popped for driving under the influence, Snead was originally expected to serve a 4-game ban before having it reduced on appeal. With the 24-year-old out, Drew Brees will rely more on Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn, Brandon Coleman and Coby Fleener. Thomas was already poised for a monster workload, so this news provides the biggest bump to Ginn, Coleman and Fleener.

Vikings insider Ben Goessling expects WR Michael Floyd to have a "sizable role" this year. That, of course, would be after he serves his 4-game suspension to open the season. Floyd got reps with the 1st-team offense this past week with Laquon Treadwell sidelined with a minor injury. “[He’s looked] pretty dang good,” HC Mike Zimmer said. “He’s made probably the most contested of anybody in the camp. He’s a big, physical body, which helps in the run game, and I think he’s done a nice job in the routes. Some of the routes, he’s a little faster than he looks.” There's some opportunity in Minnesota behind WR Stefon Diggs, but that suspension makes Floyd not worth drafting. We'll see if he emerges as a waiver-wire target in Week 5 and beyond.
