Shark Bites

Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) is out for this weekend's game against the Bucs. He's yet to practice since re-injuring his ribs on November 12 and has no timetable for return. We'll see if RB Aaron Jones (knee) is able to play on Sunday.

Ravens RB Alex Collins (calf) returned to practice on Thursday. It looks like his absence yesterday was just a day off after Monday night's win. Collins should be ready to go as Baltimore's lead back vs. the Lions this weekend.

Ravens RB Alex Collins sat out practice Wednesday with a calf injury. We didn't hear anything about the issue during Monday night's game, and Collins was on the field for the team's final drive. We're not worried about this situation but will certainly keep an eye on his participation throughout the week.

Packers RBs Ty Montgomery (ribs) and Aaron Jones (knee) remained sidelined on Wednesday. Neither guy looks like a particularly good bet to play against the Bucs this weekend. That'd leave Jamaal Williams in a feature-back role again. He's played 85.4% of Green Bay’s snaps and racked up 39 carries and 11 targets over the past 2 weeks.

Raiders WR Michael Crabtree and Broncos CB Aqib Talib have had their suspensions reduced to 1 game upon appeal, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. So Crabtree will miss this weekend's game against the Giants but be back for Week 13 vs. the Chiefs.

The NFL has suspended Raiders WR Michael Crabtree and Broncos CB Aqib Talib 2 games without pay following their extended altercation in Sunday's game. That takes Crabtree out for next Sunday's home date with the Giants and the Week 13 visit to Kansas City. Both of those look like upside passing matchups, with the Giants likely losing lead CB Janoris Jenkins for the season to an ankle injury. The Chiefs, of course, allowed Derek Carr and the Raiders that huge game last month that included Amari Cooper's career-best line. Expect an appeal, especially after Bucs WR Mike Evans got a 1-game suspension and Bengals WR A.J. Green avoided discipline following similar on-field scrapes. We'll see if anything changes here. If not, though, Carr gets a downgrade over the next 2 weeks -- especially with Cooper nursing a concussion and an ankle sprain.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Steelers. He didn’t practice all week and wasn't particularly close to playing. Consider him questionable for Week 13. With RB Aaron Jones (knee) also out, Jamaal Williams gets another game as Green Bay’s feature back. He carried 18 times and saw 6 targets last week.

Raiders WR Michael Crabtree and Broncos CB Aqib Talib were ejected in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game. They got into a wrestling match well after the whistle and both threw punches. We'll see if there's further discipline from the league beyond this week.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) is doubtful for Sunday night’s game against the Steelers. He didn’t practice all week and won’t play. With RB Aaron Jones (knee) also out, Jamaal Williams gets another game as Green Bay’s feature back. That has him in the RB2 mix, despite the difficult matchup.

Cardinals WR John Brown (toe) is out for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. He could miss multiple games with his turf toe. WRs Jaron Brown, J.J. Nelson and Chad Williams could see expanded roles, but none can be trusted in fantasy lineups — even with CB Jalen Ramsey expected to sit with a hand injury.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) remained sidelined on Wednesday. At this point, fantasy owners should be operating under the assumption that Montgomery won't play against the Steelers on Sunday night. That'd make Jamaal Williams the Packers' feature back again. He played 88% of the snaps last week, racking up 18 carries and 6 targets.

Cardinals WR John Brown has been diagnosed with turf toe, HC Bruce Arian said Monday. That's a tough injury that usually costs skill-position guys multiple weeks. Brown is droppable in redraft leagues. WR Larry Fitzgerald will continue dominating targets for Arizona, with WRs Jaron Brown and J.J. Nelson getting the scraps.

Cardinals WR John Brown (back) is active for today’s game against the Texans. He put in just 2 limited practices this week. There’s upside in this matchup, but the back issue and QB Blaine Gabbert combine to give Brown a scary-low floor.

Cardinals WR John Brown (back) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Texans. He put in limited practices on Wednesday and Friday, sitting out in between. It sounds like Brown will play, but he’s struggled at less than 100% throughout his career. There’s some upside in this matchup, but the floor is extremely low.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) didn’t practice all week and is out for Sunday’s game against the Ravens. There’s no timetable for his return, but HC Mike McCarthy did say Friday that he doesn’t think Montgomery’s injury is a “long-term concern.” With RB Aaron Jones (knee) also out, Jamaal Williams is a volume-based RB2 option for Week 11.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He's looking like a long shot to play against the Ravens this weekend. With Montgomery and Aaron Jones out, Jamaal Williams is a good bet for 15+ touches. He's in the RB2 mix, despite a negative matchup.

Packers HC Mike McCarthy said Monday that RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) "has a chance" to play against the Ravens this weekend. McCarthy added that Montgomery is still going through tests but had no other details on his status. We'll keep a close eye on him throughout this week.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery suffered a rib injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game in Chicago and is done for the day. This is presumably related to the rib issue that cost him a game back in October, but we should learn more over the next 24 hours. With RB Aaron Jones out with a knee injury, Jamaal Williams is left as Green Bay's lead back.

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.

11:11am EST 11/5/17

Ravens QB Joe Flacco (concussion) is active for today’s game against the Titans. He’s in the QB2 mix vs. the league’s 20th-ranked QB defense.
