Shark Bites

Jaguars MLB Myles Jack was ejected against the Chiefs for hitting an opponent in the face. We'll see whether the infraction draws further league discipline.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill hurt his shoulder in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game in Jacksonville and is officially questionable to return. Stay tuned for an update.

Update: Hill has been ruled out for the rest of the game.

Jaguars QB Nick Foles appeared to injure his left arm after throwing a TD to WR D.J. Chark in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He headed back to the locker room with trainers. We'll update Foles' status when we learn more. Gardner Minshew is Jacksonville's backup QB.

Update: Foles is getting an x-ray on his left clavicle.

Update: Foles has been ruled out with what the Jags are calling a left shoulder injury.

Broncos LB Todd Davis is doubtful for Monday night's game against the Raiders. Davis missed nearly all of training camp and the preseason with a calf injury that continued to keep him out of practice over the past week. His absence hurts a thin Denver LB depth chart but boosts the IDP upside of fellow ILB starter Josey Jewell. Elsewhere on the defense, slot CB Bryce Callahan is questionable with a foot injury that limited his practice participation all week. That's good news for Raiders rookie slot WR Hunter Renfrow, who sports some deep PPR upside.

Jets top CB Trumaine Johnson is active for today's game against the Bills. He entered Week 1 questionable with a hamstring injury that limited him in practice all week. Johnson makes for a low-floor IDP option.

Dolphins S Bobby McCain (shoulder) and DE Charles Harris (wrist) are active for today's game against the Ravens after entering the day questionable. Neither is a strong IDP option.

Chiefs LB Reggie Ragland is a surprise inactive against the Jaguars in Week 1. He had been working with the starters in the preseason, though coming off the field for sub packages. You can drop Ragland in any IDP league at this point. LB Damien Wilson, meanwhile, is a potential deep sleeper.

Jaguars DT Marcell Dareus (elbow) is out for today's game against the Chiefs. He put in limited practices all week, so we'd guess he'll be back for Week 2.

Jets WR Robby Anderson (calf) is active for today’ game against the Bills. He was limited in practice all week, so don’t expect him to be at 100%. That, plus a matchup with CB Tre'Davious White, makes Anderson a shaky WR3 option.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown (foot) is active for today’s game against the Dolphins. The rookie is just a DFS tournament flier after missing most of the offseason recovering from foot surgery.

Dolphins WR Albert Wilson (calf, hip) is active for today’s game against the Ravens. He missed most of the offseason rehabbing a hip injury and was limited in practice this week, so Wilson can’t be trusted in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) is inactive for today’s opener against the Eagles. Vernon Davis will serve as Washington’s starting TE but isn’t a recommended fantasy play in a tough matchup.

Redskins RB Adrian Peterson is a healthy scratch for today’s game against the Eagles. Derrius Guice is locked in as Washington’s early-down back but figures to lose pass-catching work to RB Chris Thompson

11:09am EDT 9/8/19

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Falcons. After only getting in 2 limited practices this week, Diggs is a risk/reward WR2 in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora hears that there's "every expectation" that Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott sees a "significant workload" in today's opener against the Giants. "Team sources said the running back was in great shape and made an immediate positive impression," La Canfora adds. After early-week reports that Zeke would be limited after signing on Wednesday, it's now sounding more and more like he'll play something close to his usual role. Elliott should be locked into season-long fantasy lineups.

Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy is expected to play 15-20 snaps in today's opener against the Jaguars, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That's about one quarter to one third of the game. McCoy figures to get just a handful of touches in his Chiefs debut and shouldn't be in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Cowboys CB Byron Jones won't play in today's opener against the Giants, according to ESPN's Ed Werder. Jones is still working his way back from offseason hip surgery. Jones isn't a special IDP option even when healthy, so you can go ahead and dump him for another DB in most cases.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Patriots haven't yet ruled out WR Demaryius Thomas, "but they will be cautious not to aggravate his hamstring further." That means you should go ahead and rule him out of your Week 1 fantasy lineup, in case you were considering him. Of course, Antonio Brown's arrival also means you should probably go ahead and dump Thomas altogether.

Buccaneers WR Mike Evans and LB Devin White will play today against the 49ers, despite entering Sunday questionable with illness. "This was never in doubt," according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. Fire up both for positive fantasy matchups if you were considering them.
