Shark Bites

Packers WR Geronimo Allison (concussion, chest) has been upgraded to questionable for Week 7. So it looks like he has a shot to play against the Raiders on Sunday. We'll get his official status by noon ET.

Jets TE Chris Herndon (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Monday night's game against the Patriots. We'll see if he can make his 2019 debut in Week 8. Ryan Griffin will again serve as New York's lead TE on Monday but isn't a fantasy option in this matchup.

Patriots TEs Matt LaCosse (knee) and Ryan Izzo (concussion) are out for Monday night's game against the Jets. That means TE Ben Watson should be in for lots of snaps. He's worth considering if you're hard up at TE this week.

Patriots WR Josh Gordon (knee, ankle) has been ruled out for Monday night's game against the Jets after missing practice all week. WR Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) put in a limited week of practice and is listed as questionable. The Monday night kickoff obviously makes Dorsett tough to use in fantasy lineups. Jakobi Meyers will either serve as New England's #2 or #3 WR, depending on Dorsett's status.

Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (foot) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Jets. It's the same boat Burkhead was in last week before missing the Giants game. He shouldn't be in Week 7 fantasy lineups.

The Eagles have ruled LB Nigel Bradham out for Sunday night's game at Dallas. That leaves Nate Gerry and Kamu Grugier-Hill as the top 2 LBs against the Cowboys. It's tough to know what to expect from either player statistically, given that they've combined for 1 total game of 50+% playing time. That came from Gerry last week when Bradham left early with his ankle sprain. Gerry is an option for deeper IDP leagues. Philly CB Ronald Darby is questionable for the game after missing the past 3 contests with a hamstring injury. The Eagles also activated CB Jalen Mills, who has been out since suffering a foot injury last October.

Seahawks DE Ezekiel Ansah (ankle), S Bradley McDougald (back) and DL Quinton Jefferson (oblique) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. McDougald missed practice all week and shouldn't be in your IDP plans. He's gotten off to a disappointing fantasy start anyway after a solid 2018. Jefferson showed up on the injury report Thursday and finished the week with a pair of limited practices. Ansah returned to a limited workout Friday after missing the 1st 2 days. We'll check the status for all 3 on Sunday afternoon.

Ravens LB Patrick Onwuasor is questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks with the ankle sprain that cost him last week's game. Onwuasor missed practice all week again. HC John Harbaugh said Friday that he doesn't have a "don't practice, don't play" rule, according to the team website. We'll see about his status Sunday afternoon.

Titans LB Jayon Brown is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Chargers. He did return for a limited workout Friday but missed the first 2 days. Wesley Woodyard will start in Brown's place and is worth a look as a LB3 in fantasy.

Chargers DE Melvin Ingram is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Titans with the hamstring injury that cost him the past 2 weeks. The "doubtful" tag seems to mark a step down after Ingram entered each of the past 2 games questionable. Uchenna Nwosu should start again in Ingram's place.

Colts DE Justin Houston is questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans with a calf injury. Houston missed the final 2 practices after beginning the week as a healthy participant. We've moved Houston down the DL rankings for the week and will update his status Sunday morning.

Texans starting CBs Johnathan Joseph and Bradley Roby are questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts because of hamstring injuries. Each guy put in limited practices all week. We'll see about their statuses Sunday morning. Joseph is a solid IDP option when healthy. Roby hasn't been. The matchup will be positive for Houston passing-game pieces regardless of whether Joseph and/or Roby plays.

Packers DT Kenny Clark is questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders with a calf injury that popped up during the practice week. Clark was a full participant Wednesday before sitting out Thursday and then returning to a limited Friday workout. We'll see about Clark's status Sunday morning.

The Bengals have deemed DE Carlos Dunlap doubtful for Sunday's game against the Jaguars with the knee injury that kept him out last week. Dunlap's replacement, Carl Lawson, has already been ruled out for the game with a hamstring injury. The matchup gets even better for Leonard Fournette and Gardner Minshew.

Bills OLB Matt Milano is questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Milano put in only limited practices all week while dealing with a hamstring injury. We'll check his status Sunday morning.

The Dolphins have ruled S Reshad Jones out for Sunday's game at Buffalo with a chest injury.

Less than a week after arriving to the Rams via trade, CB Jalen Ramsey is off the week's final injury report and thus ready to make his Rams debut. Ramsey missed his final 3 games in Jacksonville with a back injury. He's not a strong IDP option, but we should expect full playing time here. And we might get Ramsey shadowing Falcons WR Julio Jones. That would add upside to his fantasy outlook and makes Ramsey interesting for CB-required formats.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) isn’t listed on the Week 7 injury report. He figures to see a handful of touches behind RB Chris Carson in Sunday’s game against the Ravens but isn’t a realistic fantasy option.

Texans WR Kenny Stills (hamstring) put in a full week of practice and will return for Sunday’s game against the Colts after missing the previous 2 weeks. It’s a boost to QB Deshaun Watson’s outlook, but Stills would be a desperation Week 7 fantasy play. His return also figures to cut into WR Keke Coutee’s playing time.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (groin) is out for Sunday’s game against the Redskins. That leaves Dante Pettis and Marquise Goodwin as San Francisco’s top 2 WRs. Pettis’ usage has been trending up, but he remains just a WR4 flier for now.
