Shark Bites

Ravens NT Haloti Ngata (ankle) says he's definitely playing against the Colts on Sunday.  He's missed the team's last 2 games and their run defense has suffered as a result.  Ngata is officially listed as "questionable," so check back Sunday morning for an official update.

Recent Shark Bites

The Lions on Monday placed DL Haloti Ngata on the non-football injury list. The team didn't reveal the injury that's sidelining Ngata or how long he might be out. Any absence by the big veteran means bad news for a defense that let DT Ndamukong Suh walk in free agency. Ngata's not much of an IDP target even if healthy.

The Ravens on Tuesday traded DL Haloti Ngata to the Lions. Barring a change in scheme, Ngata should play DT in Detroit's 4-3 front. That slight change helps his IDP value in leagues that separate DTs and DEs. Ngata has been an inconsistent, down-the-list fantasy producer overall, though. He also turned 31 in January.

The league has suspended Ravens DL Haloti Ngata 4 games for violating the PED policy. That puts the veteran lineman out for the rest of the regular season. Although Ngata has popped up for solid fantasy football numbers at times, he hasn't been a big IDP contributor. So replacing him shouldn't be too difficult. Baltimore figures to turn primarily to rookie Timmy Jernigan in Ngata's role, which could mean some IDP upside for Jernigan in a positive matchup with the Dolphins on Sunday. Losing Ngata hurts the defense overall but doesn't significantly alter the team D's fantasy outlook.

Ravens NT Haloti Ngata (knee) is inactive for today's visit to Chicago.  He hasn't been much of an IDP factor this season, but his absence hurts the Baltimore run defense a bit.  We'll still start the Ravens against the Bears on a bad weather day.  All other questionable Ravens defensive starters will play.  So make sure LB Daryl Smith and S James Ihedigbo are in your lineup, if you planned to use them.

Ravens DL Haloti Ngata is active against the Browns today. He played less than his usual allotment of snaps against Houston 2 weeks ago and then sat out some practice time this week with a shoulder injury. Ngata is usable in IDP but should certainly be downgraded from his normal status. He's maybe a DL3.
