Shark Bites

Redskins TE Jordan Reed suffered what appeared to be a foot injury in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Giants. This might be related to the toe issues that have bothered him for a couple of years now. We'll pass along an update on Reed when we get one.

Update: Reed has been ruled out with his foot injury. Vernon Davis steps in as Washington's pass-catching TE.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy injured his hamstring in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Jets and is questionable to return. We'll update his status when we learn more. Chris Ivory figures to operate as Buffalo's lead back as long as McCoy is out.

Jets QB Sam Darnold limped to the locker room in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game in Buffalo. This looks like an aggravation of the right foot injury that cost him the previous 3 games. We'll update Darnold's status when we learn more. QB Josh McCown is in the game for the Jets.

Update: Darnold returned later in the 1st quarter.

Washington ILB Zach Brown (illness) and DL Matt Ioannidis (shin) are active for today's game against the Giants. Brown should be fine for normal IDP usage. Ioannidis looks risky after missing practice all week. The matchup does present upside, though, if he makes the most sense among your options.

Buccaneers DE Jason Pierre-Paul (knee) is active for today's game against the Saints. He put in just a limited practice Friday and carries some extra risk into an already low-floor matchup. Consider other options for your IDP lineup today.

Texans CB Johnathan Joseph (neck) is active for today's game against the Colts after arriving with a questionable tag. There's some durability risk, but he also carries big IDP upside this week.

Colts DT Margus Hunt (knee) is active for today's game against the Texans. He's a low-level IDP option.

Browns DT Larry Ogunjobi (biceps) is active for today's game against the Panthers. Ogunjobi is just a low-level IDP candidate.

Saints TE Dan Arnold is inactive for today's game against the Bucs. He wasn't on the injury report, so it looks like he's a healthy scratch. That's a surprise after Arnold's role had grown in recent weeks. His absence leaves Josh Hill and Ben Watson at TE. Neither is a reliable fantasy play.

Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) is inactive for today's game against the Colts. He was activated this week but evidently isn't ready to contribute yet. Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue will continue to serve as Houston's top 2 RBs.

Dolphins WR Danny Amendola (knee) is active for today’s game against the Patriots. He’s a low-end PPR option.

Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (toe) is active for today’s game against the Bills. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, so don’t expect him to be close to 100%. Crowell is a shaky RB3 play.

11:12am EST 12/9/18

Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Colts. He’s reportedly aiming for a Week 15 return. DeAndre Hopkins and Demaryius Thomas will again serve as Houston’s top 2 WRs today.

11:12am EST 12/9/18

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Texans. He only got in a limited practice on Friday and won’t be at 100% today. That adds some risk to Hilton’s outlook, but he remains a high-upside WR2.

11:12am EST 12/9/18

Falcons K Matt Bryant (back) is active for today’s game against the Packers. He was added to the injury report on Friday and limited in practice, so he comes with elevated risk in fantasy lineups.

11:12am EST 12/9/18

Ravens QB Joe Flacco (hip) is inactive for today’s game against the Chiefs. That makes QB Lamar Jackson a safer fantasy play.

Colts HC Frank Reich told NFL Network's James Palmer that WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) will play against the Texans today. The decision was made before pregame warmups, so it seems like Hilton's shoulder is in better shape than originally thought. He belongs in fantasy lineups as a high-upside WR2.

Steelers RB James Conner could remain sidelined for next weekend's game against the Patriots, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Conner didn't practice at all this week and will be re-evaluated on Monday. We'll see what Pittsburgh's Conner-less backfield looks like against the Raiders today. It's worth noting that Rapoport said RB Jaylen Samuels will get the "bulk of the carries."

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport would consider it a "major surprise" if Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) doesn't play against the Texans today, "based on his history and the importance of the game." Hilton is officially a game-time decision and won't be close to 100% if he suits up. That obviously adds risk to his fantasy stock. But there's also big upside against a Houston squad that he usually torches.

Vikings MLB Eric Kendricks is questionable for Monday night's game against the Seahawks with a rib injury. He missed practice Thursday and Friday before returning to a limited Saturday workout. The team expects him to play against Seattle, though. HC Mike Zimmer told the Pioneer Press that Kendricks "will be fine." Plan to have Kendricks available for your IDP lineups. We'll confirm his status Monday evening.
