Shark Bites

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday. HC Matt Nagy reiterated that Trubisky's shoulder injury isn't a "long-term issue," but it's looking like he'll miss at least 1 more game.

Packers TE Jimmy Graham suffered a broken thumb in Thursday night's loss to the Seahawks, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The team is still trying to determine how much time Graham will miss, but this is obviously a significant injury for a guy who makes his living catching passes. We'd try to hang on to Graham in fantasy for now, but he's droppable if you're desperate for a roster spot. Lance Kendricks will step in as Green Bay's lead pass-catching TE for however long Graham is out but isn't a great fantasy option.

Packers TE Jimmy Graham suffered a thumb injury in the 1st half of Thursday night's game in Seattle and is officially questionable to return. TE Lance Kendricks is next up on Green Bay's depth chart.

The Bucs have signed K Cairo Santos to replace K Chandler Catanzaro. Santos filled in for Greg Zuerlein in Los Angeles earlier this season, connecting on 5 of 6 FGs and 5 of 6 XPs. He'll be a viable fantasy option in the high-scoring Tampa offense. Catanzaro averaged 1.7 FG attempts and 3 XP attempts per game.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) put in a full week of practice and will return for Sunday’s game against the Lions. A-Rob is sitting just 49th among WRs in PPR points per game. He’ll benefit from the expected absence of CB Darius Slay but still isn’t more than a WR3.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack (ankle, groin) put in a full practice Wednesday. That marks the 1st full practice since Week 6 for Mack, who missed the past 2 games. The star pass-rusher appears on track to return for Sunday's game against the Lions, which would only help make fantasy's top defense a stronger play against an up-and-down Detroit offense.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. That puts him on track to play against the Lions this weekend after missing the previous 2 games. A-Rob is sitting 49th among WRs in PPR points per game and figures to see a lot of CB Darius Slay on Sunday. He's no more than a low-end WR3 for Week 10.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack is out for today's game against the Bills. That takes out a prime IDP option, but it doesn't stop the Chicago D from being the week's strongest play vs. Buffalo QB Nathan Peterman.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) is inactive for today’s game against the Bills. Taylor Gabriel and Anthony Miller will again serve as Chicago’s top 2 WRs and are both lower-end WR3 options in fantasy lineups.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Bears OLB Khalil Mack is "unlikely to play" against the Bills today, "though Chicago wants to see him pregame before making any final determination." IDP owners can wait for his status at 11:30 a.m. ET before making lineup decisions, but expect to not have Mack available. The Bears' team D remains a strong option, however, against Nathan Peterman.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack is questionable for Sunday's game at Buffalo with the ankle injury that cost him last Sunday's game against the Jets. Mack again missed 2 days of practice before putting in a limited workout Friday. That's been his schedule the past 2 weeks. We'll see about his status Sunday morning.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Bills. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. It’d make a lot of sense for Chicago to hold Robinson out of a game they can win without him. We’ll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. It wouldn't make much sense for Chicago to push him out there for an easily winnable game vs. Buffalo this weekend. Look for Taylor Gabriel and Anthony Miller to again serve as the Bears' top 2 WRs for that one.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) did not practice on Wednesday. He missed last week's game vs. the Jets and might be held out of an easily winnable game in Buffalo this weekend.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack is inactive for today's game against the Jets. His sprained ankle is clearly worse off than last week, when he played through a "questionable" tag for 84% of the snaps. We'll see about his status for Week 9. The Bears' D remains a strong fantasy play for the week, though losing Mack dings the upside at least a bit.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) is inactive for today’s game against the Jets. His absence leaves Taylor Gabriel and Anthony Miller as Chicago’s top 2 WRs. Consider Gabriel a WR3 and Miller a WR4 consideration.

The forecast for today's Jets-Bears game calls for 20 mph sustained winds with gusts around 35 mph. That's more than enough to impact the deep-passing and kicking games. You shouldn't have been investing in the Jets passing game anyway, but the weather is a downgrade for QB Mitchell Trubisky and WR Taylor Gabriel. Short-range targets like TE Trey Burton and RB Tarik Cohen should be fine.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) is not expected to play against the Jets today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "The hope is a week off gets him right.," Rapoport adds. Robinson's absence leaves Taylor Gabriel, Anthony Miller, Kevin White and Josh Bellamy as Chicago's top 4 WRs. It should also mean a few extra targets for RB Tarik Cohen and TE Trey Burton.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. Just like last week, he sat out practice Wednesday and Thursday with the ankle injury and then returned for a limited Friday workout. Mack still played 84% of the snaps in the loss to the Patriots. We'd bet on full playing time once again this week.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) is questionable for this weekend's game against the Jets. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. The Chicago Tribune's Rich Campbell believes a decision on Robinson's availability might not come until after pregame warmups. We'll find out his status by noon ET on Sunday, but Robinson will be a risky fantasy play if active. His absence would open up snaps and targets for rookie WR Anthony Miller.
