Shark Bites

Vikings TE Irv Smith suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's win over the Cardinals. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that he's expected to miss "multiple weeks." Smith shouldn't expect to find starter opportunities when he returns, after his team traded multiple draft picks for T.J. Hockenson. Smith can be dropped in all non-dynasty fantasy football formats.

Update: Smith is expected to be out 8-10 weeks, per Schefter.

Recent Shark Bites

Bengals TE Irv Smith (hamstring) practiced all week and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll be back for Sunday’s game vs. the Cardinals. Smith totaled five catches on nine targets for 27 scoreless yards over the first two games of the season. He’d be a desperation Week 5 fantasy play.

Bengals TE Irv Smith (hamstring) was upgraded to full participation in Thursday's practice. He's on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Cardinals. Cincinnati could certainly use Smith to step up in a struggling offense that'll likely be without WR Tee Higgins. But Smith would be tough to trust in Week 5 fantasy lineups after totaling just five catches for 27 yards over the first two weeks of the season.

Bengals TE Irv Smith (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Titans. Tanner Hudson stepped in for Smith as Cincinnati’s lead pass-catching TE last week, catching two of four targets for 30 yards. Hudson would be a desperation Week 4 fantasy play.

Bengals TE Irv Smith (hamstring) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. He shouldn't be in your Week 4 fantasy plans.

Bengals TE Irv Smith (hamstring) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Rams. Drew Sample steps in as Cincinnati's lead TE but is only viable in DFS tournaments.
