Shark Bites

Colts TE Jack Doyle (concussion) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Packers. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, though, so he's on track to be cleared in time for that one. Doyle's return puts a dent in TEs Trey Burton and Mo Alie-Cox's target projections.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the Steelers. D.J. Chark, Keelan Cole and Chris Conley will again serve as Jacksonville's top 3 WRs in that one.

Packers WR Allen Lazard (core) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Colts. HC Matt LaFleur said earlier in the week that Lazard will be limited if he suits up for the 1st time since Week 3. He’s not a bankable fantasy play this week, but his return would add downside to WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) is out for Sunday’s game against Washington. He remained sidelined at practice all week and has no timetable for return. Gio Bernard gets another game as Cincinnati’s lead back on Sunday. He saw another 7 targets last week but handled just 8 of the Bengals’ 20 RB carries.

Broncos TE Noah Fant (ribs) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. The ankle that’s bothered him for the past few weeks is off the injury report, but now he’s dealing with this rib issue. We’re expecting Fant to play on Sunday but will look for an update in the morning. Miami-Denver doesn’t kick off until 4:05 pm ET.

Eagles HC Doug Pederson admitted Friday that TE Zach Ertz (ankle) is unlikely to play against the Browns this weekend. He returned to practice this week but "probably needs a little more time," according to Pederson. Ertz's continued absence makes TE Dallas Goedert a relatively strong target bet.

"Signs are pointing towards" Saints QB Taysom Hill getting the start against the Falcons this weekend, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hill has taken starter reps in practice this week. It's a mild surprise only because the Saints figure to drastically alter their offense moving from a pure pocket passer in Drew Brees to a dual-threat in Hill. There's still a chance New Orleans mixes in QB Jameis Winston, but Hill has suddenly become a super intriguing Week 11 fantasy play. He brings big rushing upside -- and the matchup is sweet vs. Atlanta's 32nd-ranked QB defense. The move to Hill is a major downgrade for WR Michael Thomas and the rest of New Orleans' pass catchers.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Hill "will start" vs. Atlanta after taking "all the starter reps" at practice this week. Winston will back him up.

Seahawks TE Greg Olsen ruptured the plantar fascia in his left foot in Thursday night's win over the Cardinals, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Olsen is expected to miss about 2 months. That means he's done for at least the regular season and can be dropped from all fantasy rosters. Olsen's absence leaves Seattle with TEs Jacob Hollister and Will Dissly. Hollister out-targeted Dissly 3 to 1 on Thursday night and 16 to 9 over the last 5 games. Neither guy figures to emerge as a reliable fantasy play.

Seahawks TE Greg Olsen left early the 4th quarter of Thursday night's game against the Cardinals after suffering an apparent left ankle injury. It was a non-contact injury that left Olsen not able to put any weight on it, a worrisome situation. We'll watch for updates on his status. His absence would obviously help TEs Will Dissly and Jacob Hollister.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) remained sidelined on Thursday. It's looking like he'll miss another game. Look for Gio Bernard to serve as Cincinnati's lead back vs. Washington this weekend.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (concussion) returned to a full practice on Thursday. That puts him on track to play against the Packers this weekend, turning the Colts back into a 3-TE committee alongside Trey Burton and Mo Alie-Cox.

Cardinals LB De'Vondre Campbell is active for tonight's game against the Seahawks. You can use him in IDP lineups, but know that he put in just 1 limited practice since sustaining the calf injury on Sunday. There's risk to playing him.

Seahawks RBs Chris Carson (foot) and Travis Homer (hand) are inactive for tonight's game against the Cardinals. Seattle elevated RB Bo Scarbrough, rather than RB Alex Collins, from the practice squad. So it'll be Scarbrough, Carlos Hyde and DeeJay Dallas in the backfield. We're expecting Hyde to lead the way in carries with Dallas handling most of the pass-catching work.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (knee) is active for tonight's game against the Cardinals. He suffered what HC Pete Carroll called a minor knee sprain this past Sunday and only got in a limited practice on Wednesday. It adds some risk to Lockett's Week 11 outlook, but he's almost impossible to bench in season-long leagues after exploding for a 15-200-3 line in the 1st meeting with Arizona.

The Eagles have signed RB Jordan Howard to their practice squad. Howard flamed out quickly in Miami and is a long shot for any fantasy value in Philadelphia. You can continue to ignore him.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (foot) didn't practice on Thursday after getting in a limited workout on Wednesday. We don't have any other details about his Week 11 status at this point. Kamara was on the injury report with a foot back in Week 9, but he was limited on Wednesday and then a full-go on Thursday and Friday. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow. Latavius Murray would turn into a RB1 if Kamara misses this weekend's game vs. the Falcons.

Update: Kamara was allowed to talk to reporters on Thursday afternoon and didn't sound too concerned. "I'm feeling good, I'll be alright," he said.

After being limited on Wednesday, Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) did not practice on Thursday. He was able to play through this injury last weekend. So he either just got a rest day or aggravated the injury on Thursday. We'll hopefully have a better idea of his Week 11 status by Friday afternoon.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hip) did not practice on Thursday. That follows a limited workout on Wednesday. Either Golladay suffered a setback or this was a planned day off. We'll get another update tomorrow, but fantasy owners should plan on not having Golladay in Week 11 lineups at this point.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift was held out of Thursday's practice and listed on the injury report with a concussion. It's the 1st we've heard of it. With Lions-Panthers less than 3 days away, Swift is looking very iffy. Fantasy owners should start lining up alternatives. The rookie's absence would leave Detroit's backfield to Adrian Peterson and Kerryon Johnson

Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (foot) remained limited on Thursday. "There's a chance" he's back for this weekend's game against the Saints, according to the team's official website. We'll get another update on Ridley tomorrow.
