Shark Bites

Buffalo
11:12am EST 12/31/17

Patriots LB Kyle Van Noy is active for today's game against the Jets after missing the past 3 contests with a calf injury. He's tough to trust in that 1st game back, however, with his outlook further muddied by the 12-degree weather in Foxborough. IDP owners should try to go in a different direction.

The Patriots have ruled OLB Kyle Van Noy out for Sunday's game against the Jets with a throat injury. We haven't seen any other details on his issue, so we'll see where this goes. Fortunately for fantasy players, Van Noy isn't a strong IDP option even when available.

The Patriots are bringing back LB Kyle Van Noy on a 2-year deal worth "up to" $13.2 million, according to NFL Network's Mike Garofolo. Van Noy spent 3 full seasons and part of 2016 with the Patriots before signing with Miami last offseason. He delivered a career-high 6.5 sacks his last year in New England (2019). We'll see how all the roles settle out in an LB corps that differs significantly from that one. Van Noy has generally not been a high-level IDP option, though. Don't expect that to change in his age-30 season.

Dolphins LB Kyle Van Noy (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots. He missed last week's game with the same injury. Van Noy progressed to 3 limited practices this week after getting on the field just once last week, so he's clearly at least closer to being ready. We'll check his status Sunday morning. LB Elandon Roberts (chest) is also questionable after missing last week's game. He looks unlikely to play. The absence of either would raise the IDP floor for Miami LB Jerome Baker.

Dolphins LB Kyle Van Noy (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Van Noy missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before putting in a limited workout Friday. He's a weak IDP bet for Week 14.

Dolphins LB Kyle Van Noy (hip) is active for today's game against the Broncos. Use him as you normally would in IDP lineups.
