Shark Bites

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills. He missed practice Thursday and Friday with an illness. We'll see about his game status. Yeldon's obviously not a strong fantasy option but is in play for DFS because of the small slate.

Bills LB Matt Milano missed practice Wednesday and Thursday with a hamstring injury and isn't expected to practice Friday, according to Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News. "Sounds like it will be tough for him to play" against the Jaguars on Sunday, Skurski tweeted. Add that to the Bills entering the game as 8- to 8.5-point underdogs, and we've removed Milano from the bottom of our playoff IDP rankings.

Panthers S Kurt Coleman has put in 2 full practices this week after sitting out Week 17 with an ankle injury. That should mean he's ready for full duty in Sunday's playoff game against the Saints. We've added him to the playoff IDP rankings -- though Coleman remains a weak option, given that we don't expect Carolina to make it past Round 1.

Panthers S Kurt Coleman (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Falcons

Panthers S Kurt Coleman (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. He put in limited practices Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday. The 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff makes it tougher to wait on Coleman, so you might need to go a different direction in your IDP lineup. We'll confirm his status around 3 p.m. ET when the late-game inactives come out.

Panthers DE Mario Addison (hip) is active for today's game against the Buccaneers. He put in just a limited practice Friday after sitting out the previous 2 days, but his playing time didn't suffer last week, when the injury occurred. Addison will be worth using in an upside matchup in most cases.

Panthers DE Mario Addison is questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers with a hip injury. Addison missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before putting in a limited workout Friday. We'll check on his status Sunday morning. Carolina, of course, will definitely go without OLB Thomas Davis, who was suspended 1 game for an illegal hit that left Packers WR Davante Adams concussed.

The Saints on Tuesday placed LB A.J. Klein on IR with the groin injury that cost him the past 2 games. That should continue to leave a starting gig for Manti Te'o, who played 100% of the snaps in Sunday's win over the Jets.

Bills DT Kyle Williams (groin) is active for today's game against the Colts after entering the day questionable. He's an upside D-line option in IDP leagues in a nice matchup. Buffalo will also have top CB Tre'Davious White, who was able to clear the concussion protocol this week after last Sunday's vicious cheap shot from Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski. Slot CB Leonard Johnson (knee), however, is inactive.

Bills DT Kyle Williams (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts. According to the AP, coaches expect Williams to play. He carries IDP upside against a struggling O-line that will be without C Ryan Kelly.

Cardinals WR John Brown (toe) is out for this weekend’s game against the Titans. Larry Fitzgerald remains the only Arizona WR that should be in fantasy lineups.

Bills CB Tre'Davious White is in the league concussion protocol after taking a vicious cheap shot to the back of the head from Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski in Sunday's game. We'll see how he progresses, but the rookie seems likely to miss at least 1 game -- unfortunately, an upside spot for his IDP outlook against the Colts.

Cardinals WR John Brown (toe) is out for Sunday’s game against the Rams. Jaron Brown served as Arizona’s #2 WR last week, with J.J. Nelson #3 and rookie Chad Williams #4. None of these guys are viable fantasy options vs. a tough Rams pass defense.

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.

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.

Bills DE Jerry Hughes (shin, calf) is inactive for today's game against the Chargers.

11:11am EST 11/19/17

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.

Bills DE Jerry Hughes (shin, calf) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers. He returned to limited practices the past 2 days after sitting out Wednesday. He has been a poor IDP producer for weeks now, though, and isn't worth waiting on -- especially for a negative matchup.

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.

Bills DE Jerry Hughes is "day to day" with a shin injury that knocked him out of Sunday's loss to the Saints, HC Sean McDermott told reporters Sunday. It doesn't sound serious, so Hughes might be ready to play against the Chargers this Sunday. But he hasn't given IDP owners much in a while, so there's little reason to wait for him and/or take on any added risk.
