Shark Bites

Buffalo

Dolphins DE Cameron Wake is active today.  He missed the Monday night loss at New Orleans with a sprained MCL but appears ready to go.  It's not yet clear how limited his snaps might be, which obviously adds risk to using him in your IDP league.  We like many options more for the week, but you'll have to weigh the risk vs. reward on your team.

The Titans have agreed to a 3-year, $23 million deal with Cameron Wake, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. The deal includes $10 million guaranteed and positions Wake at OLB in a Tennessee defense that needs a pass-rushing upgrade. Wake remains a threat off the edge at age 37 but posted a career-low 5.5 sacks last year and has seen his fantasy scoring averages dip for 3 straight years. He's not much of an IDP factor anymore but has a shot to help the Titans' D overall.

According to The Miami Herald, Dolphins HC Adam Gase has "really high" confidence that DE Cameron Wake will be ready for the start of training camp. Wake tore his left Achilles' tendon in an Oct. 29 loss at New England, but has reportedly been impressing in his return so far. "He has been doing some things in the OTA practices that makes me feel like he’s right on track," Gase said. "It’s probably us holding him back more than him saying, ‘I can’t do something.’” We'll see how Wake looks and holds up this summer, but this is obviously good news for one of the league's top pass rushers. An active Wake will be worth taking a chance on in IDP drafts this summer, though he probably won't crack the top 10 in our DL rankings.

Dolphins DE Cameron Wake on Saturday signed a 2-year extension. The pact will pay him $15 million, with $10 million of that guaranteed, according to ESPN.com. Wake's season ended last November with an Achilles' tear, and now he reportedly gets the largest contract ever for a pass-rusher older than 33. We don't have the cap details of the new deal yet, but the veteran was set to count $9.8 million against the 2016 cap. This seems like a move to clear cap space for the team, with Wake no lock to return to form this season. IDP owners should remain wary of the 34-year-old. And if you see an opportunity to sell Wake for value in a dynasty format, take it.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Dolphins DE Cameron Wake tore his left Achilles' tendon in Thursday night's loss to the Patriots, just as everyone feared. That obviously ends Wake's season and might threaten his career. He'll turn 34 in January and has dealt with nagging injuries at times over the past couple of seasons. Colts OLB Robert Mathis actually suffered the same injury in summer 2014, heading into his age-33 season and has started just 1 game since. Already inconsistent against the run, Wake might turn into a pass-rush specialist for any time he has left on the field. He's tough to like as a long-term IDP factor. For this season, Derrick Shelby looks like the main replacement at left DE. Losing Wake obviously hurts the Miami team D as well, taking away its best pass-rusher and top sack producer.

Dolphins DE Cameron Wake left Thursday night's game in the 3rd quarter with an injury to his left leg. He pulled up awkwardly while pass-rushing and put no weight on the leg as 2 trainers helped him off the field. It was not a promising scene. And Wake then rode on the back of a cart into the locker room, with the injured leg out straight. We'll keep an eye out for the diagnosis. Wake had delivered a sack for the 3rd consecutive game before getting hurt.

Update: The Dolphins have ruled Wake out for the rest of the game with an Achilles' injury. We're not expecting good news from the ultimate diagnosis. Derrick Shelby took over the left DE spot with Wake out.
