Shark Bites

According to multiple reports, the Vikings are trading DE Yannick Ngakoue to the Ravens for a 3rd-round pick in 2021 and a conditional 5th-rounder in 2022. Minnesota, of course, just acquired Ngakoue from Jacksonville before the season for a 2nd-round 2021 pick plus the same conditional-level selection. The veteran pass-rusher has produced, delivering 5 sacks in 6 games. Ngakoue will play OLB in Baltimore's 3-4 alignment, but he should retain his DL eligibility in IDP leagues. He figures to take playing time from OLBs Jaylon Ferguson and Tyus Bowser, across from Matt Judon. Minnesota, meanwhile, now counts Ifeadi Odenigbo and Jalyn Holmes as its top 2 DEs -- unless Danielle Hunter is nearing a return from his neck injury. Both teams are on bye this week, so we'll see what else we learn about both situations before their Week 8 contests.

Recent Shark Bites

The Colts have placed EDGE Yannick Ngakoue on IR. He popped up on the injury report Friday with a throat issue that we haven't seen details for. He'll obviously miss the final 2 games now. Indy should remain in solid shape at the edge spots, with Kwity Paye and Dayo Odeyingbo as the starters. Both sit among our top 20 D-linemen in the Week 17 IDP rankings.

Colts EDGE Yannick Ngakoue (back) is active for today's game against the Chiefs. He's a lower-level IDP option anyway, though.

Colts DE Yannick Ngakoue (back) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He'll be a lackluster IDP option even if active.

The Raiders are sending DE Yannick Ngakoue to the Colts for CB Rock Ya-Sin. Ngakoue tied for 21st in the league with 63 total pressures last season, his lone year with the Raiders. The 27-year-old (as of March 31) is heading into the final year of his contract and coming off his 1st double-digit sack total since 2017. Indianapolis will be Ngakoue's 5th team since 2019. Pro Football Focus ranked Ya-Sin 34th in coverage among all 236 active CBs last year. He should claim a starting gig opposite Trayvon Mullen in Vegas, with CB Casey Hayward an unrestricted free agent. We'll see whether the Raiders make other moves at the position.

Raiders DE Yannick Ngakoue (hamstring) and DE Carl Nassib (pec, toe) are active for today's game against the Steelers. Each entered the day questionable. Ngakoue is in play for IDP use, but the hamstring certainly adds risk.
