Shark Bites

Steelers WR Chase Claypool (hamstring) has been ruled out for tomorrow's game vs. the Packers. No surprise after he hurt that hamstring on Thursday and didn't practice on Friday. His status for Week 5 beyond is uncertain. WR James Washington will step into Claypool's spot in 3-WR sets but would be a shaky fantasy play with QB Ben Roethlisberger struggling badly. WRs Diontae Johnson and JuJu Smith-Schuster should also pick up extra targets.

Steelers WR Chase Claypool (toe) is not listed on the final injury report after putting in a full practice on Friday. That suggests that he’ll be at least close to 100% for Sunday night’s game vs. the Chargers. Los Angeles ranks 2nd in adjusted fantasy points allowed to WRs, and Claypool might be catching passes from QB Mason Rudolph. It leaves him as just a WR3 for Week 11.

Steelers WR Chase Claypool (toe) was limited on Thursday for the 2nd straight practice. It remains unclear whether he'll be ready for return for Sunday night's game vs. the Chargers. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Steelers WR Chase Claypool (toe) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. It's a surprise after reports suggested that Claypool was in for a multi-week absence. He now seems to have a chance to play vs. the Chargers on Sunday night. We'll get another update on his progress tomorrow.

Steelers WR Chase Claypool is considered "week-to-week" with a toe injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We'll look for a more concrete timeline for Claypool's return, but we can safely assume that he'll miss Sunday's game vs. the Lions. With WR JuJu Smith-Schuster on IR, we'll likely see James Washington join Diontae Johnson in 2-WR sets, with Ray-Ray McCloud the #3 WR. Johnson should continue to dominate targets. TE Pat Freiermuth could see more volume, too.

Steelers WR Chase Claypool (hamstring) isn’t listed on the final injury report. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, so he should be ready for his usual role. But QB Ben Roethlisberger’s struggles leave Claypool as just a WR3 in fantasy lineups. WR James Washington (groin) is out for Week 5.
