traded to Bills | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Buffalo traded ILB Kelvin Sheppard to Indianapolis for OLB Jerry Hughes. Sheppard looks like a depth player for Indy behind some combination of LBs Jerrell Freeman, Pat Angerer and Kavell Conner. His departure creates a starting opportunity for Bills 2nd-round pick Kiko Alonso. The former Oregon Duck looks like an intriguing late-round IDP in 2013 leagues and a high-upside dynasty selection. Hughes, meanwhile, gets a new start after failing to deliver on his 1st-round status with the Colts. He could enter the starting competition under new DC Mike Pettine. Hughes did enjoy his most productive season last year after the Colts switched to a 3-4 scheme from the 4-3 that kept Hughes at DE.

Recent Shark Bites

Bills DE Jerry Hughes (groin) is active for today's game against the Dolphins. He reportedly tweaked an existing groin issue in practice this week but still carries big sack upside into the matchup with Miami. Hughes is worth a shot in IDP lineups in most cases where you're considering him.

Bills DE Jerry Hughes is questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. He left Thursday's practice early with a groin injury that then kept him out Friday. "He's day to day," HC Sean McDermott said Friday, according to the team website. "He's had a little bit of (a groin issue) before, but it kind of flared up." We'll check Hughes' status Sunday morning.

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

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.

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.
