Shark Bites

11:10am EDT 10/13/19

Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage (foot) is active for today’s game against the Redskins. He played behind both Kenyan Drake and Mark Walton last time out, so Ballage isn’t a fantasy option.

11:10am EDT 10/13/19

Dolphins WR Albert Wilson (calf, hip) is active for today’s game against the Redskins. He’s been out since Week 1 and was limited in practice all week, so it’s unclear how big a role he’ll play today. WR Jakeem Grant (hamstring) is inactive.

11:10am EDT 10/13/19

Texans WR Kenny Stills (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Chiefs. That again leaves Keke Coutee as Houston’s clear #3 WR — although it’s worth noting that he played only 44% of the offensive snaps with Stills out last week.

11:10am EDT 10/13/19

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (clavicle) is active for today’s game against the Texans. He received medical clearance late this week but was reportedly still dealing with soreness in that injured shoulder. Hill obviously comes with more risk than usual this week — but he still boasts week-winning upside.

11:10am EDT 10/13/19

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Texans. He didn’t practice all week and should be considered iffy for this Thursday night's game against the Broncos.

11:10am EDT 10/13/19

Ravens TE Mark Andrews (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Bengals. Although he’s not at 100%, there was never any concern about Andrews’ availability for this one. He remains a TE1 with upside.

11:10am EDT 10/13/19

Ravens WR Marquise Brown (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Bengals. That leaves Willie Snead, Miles Boykin, Seth Roberts and Chris Moore as Baltimore’s top 4 WRs. Snead is the best fantasy bet of the bunch but isn’t more than a WR4.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (clavicle) will play against the Texans today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hill was able to maintain his cardio while rehabbing from this injury, and we haven't heard anything about him being on a snap count today. You'd need to be loaded at WR to consider benching Hill in season-long fantasy leagues.

Buccaneers OLB Shaq Barrett is active for today's game against the Panthers. He arrived questionable with an oblique issue but is available for your IDP lineups. S Mike Edwards (hamstring) is also active despite a "questionable" tag.

Texans WR Kenny Stills (hamstring) is not expected to play today against the Chiefs, according to ESPN's Diana Russini. Stills is officially questionable after putting in limited practices for the 2nd straight week. Stills' absence would seem to help WR Keke Coutee, but the slot man actually played less (44%) with Stills out last Sunday than he did the week before (57%), when Stills left early. Coutee's a low-end fantasy option at best.

Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (ankle) is not expected to play against the Falcons today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Kirk was limited in practice all week and has a good shot to return for Week 7. We'll see if WR Damiere Byrd (hamstring) is able to play today, but WR KeeSean Johnson will be the best target bet among Arizona wideouts not named Larry Fitzgerald.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews (shoulder) is expected to play against the Bengals today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Andrews had been playing through a foot injury and is now battling this shoulder. But he's still seen 7+ targets in every game this season and remains a locked-in TE1.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (clavicle) has a "serious chance" to play against the Texans today. The team will reportedly wait until pregame warmups to make a final decision. We'll get Hill's official status around 11:30 am. He'll come with elevated risk but would be nearly impossible to bench in season-long fantasy leagues if active.

Update: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Hill has received medical clearance to play but adds that he dealt with soreness in that shoulder this week. Hill is a game-time decision.

Panthers CB Donte Jackson (groin) is inactive for today's game against the Buccaneers. S Eric Reid (ankle) and LB Shaq Thompson (ankle) are active after entering the day questionable. They should be OK to use in IDP lineups.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara is expected to play today against the Jaguars, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Kamara hurt an ankle in practice this week and sat out Friday's workout, but he participated in Saturday's walkthrough. We'll get his official game status around 11:30 a.m. ET.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown is not expected to play against the Bengals today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Brown missed practice all week because of the ankle he sprained last Sunday.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Cardinals RB David Johnson is expected to play against the Falcons today -- "barring a setback" -- despite the back injury that rendered him questionable. An active Johnson belongs in fantasy lineups against the defense that allowed 53 points to the Texans a week ago. Chase Edmonds can still be a deeper PPR option, but last week marked the 1st time this season he collected more than 6 touches.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Chargers TE Hunter Henry is "trending towards returning to the field today." Henry is obviously not a safe fantasy bet in his first game back from a leg fracture. But in the volatile current TE landscape, he's an immediate option.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that 49ers TE George Kittle is expected to play today against the Rams, "barring a setback." Rapoport adds that Kittle "may workout pregame to test it, but the plan is to play." Kittle was added to the injury report Friday with a hamstring issue. The situation certainly adds risk to his Week 6 outlook and damages his DFS profile. But an active Kittle will almost certainly start in your season-long lineup.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that there's "some concern about whether [Kittle] will be able to finish the game." He remains a top-5 play in season-long leagues but now looks like a tournament-only option in DFS.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Rams RB Malcolm Browns is "expected to be the featured back" against the 49ers today in Todd Gurley's absence -- with rookie RB Darrell Henderson "sprinkling in." That goes along with our expectation. San Francisco has presented a tough run D this year, but Brown should be a good volume bet in an offense that ranks 6th in scoring and 4th in yards through 5 weeks.
