Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard didn’t play in the team’s 12-9 overtime win over the Chiefs last Sunday as a result of migraine headaches that led the team to make him a Saturday addition to their injury report.

The Giants estimated that Shepard would have been a limited participant in practice on Monday, but things were different when they actually got on the field Tuesday. Shepard wasn’t spotted during the portion of practice open to the media and coach Ben McAdoo confirmed that Shepard didn’t work at all two days before the Giants will face the Redskins on Thanksgiving night.

Fantasy Impact:

McAdoo said, via multiple reporters, that Shepard is again “not feeling well” and that the team will look at all possibilities when it comes to finding a way for the wideout to feel better. With a short week, it may be tough for Shepard to go against the Skins. The two teams are the Thursday night contest on Thanksgiving.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard added to injury report

Giants WR Sterling Shepard added to the injury report with an illness. He's now listed as questionable vs Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact:

This will require monitoring by fantasy owners before inactives come out on Sunday, as Shepard is, at worst, a WR2 this week after a monstrous 11 receptions for 142 yards last week. He's a target machine with Odell Beckham and Brandon Marshall on IR. Shepard has 22 targets in his past two games. The good news is Shepard has an early kickoff on Sunday, giving fantasy owners more options if he were to be inactive.

KC Chiefs lead league in touchdowns of 40+ yards

There is a ton of actionable information in BJ Kissel's '10 Stats to Know' article regarding this week's Chiefs vs. Giants article, but stat No. 10 was the most eye-popping:

"The Chiefs’ offense has scored eight touchdowns of at least 40 yards this season, which leads the league.

"And on the flipside, the Giants defense has given up five touchdowns of at least 40 yards, which is tied for the most in the league."

Fantasy Impact:

A lot of chatter in the fantasy community this week has centered on Travis Kelce's fantastic matchup versus a Giants defense that has allowed a TD to a tight end in every game this season. It's actually a streak that has extended to their last 10 games, which is an NFL record, according to Kissel. The Giants are also allowing 132.6 rushing yards per game—30th in the league.

There's potential for plenty of Chiefs TDs in this game, from players at all skill positions, and Vegas backs that up as the Chiefs are implied to score almost four TDs in this game. It's safe to say fire up all Chiefs in this one. Alex Smith is our No. 3 ranked QB, Kareem Hunt is our No. 1 ranked RB, and Kelce is our No. 1 ranked TE. Kicker Harrison Butker and the Chiefs defense are also top-two options at their respective positions.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott arguments to be heard Thursday

Monday, November 6, 2017, 1:06pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The next step in the ongoing legal fight that has the NFL on one side and Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott and the NFL Players Association on the other side is a ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit on the motion for an injunction of Elliott’s suspension pending the appeal of a district court ruling denying such an injunction.

Judge Susan Carney of the Second Circuit issued an administrative stay of Elliott’s suspension last Friday, which left Elliott free to play in Sunday’s win over the Chiefs pending the resolution of the motion. Before the court rules on that motion, they will hear oral arguments on Thursday.

As noted by lawyer Daniel Wallach, the court added those arguments to their calendar for 2 p.m. ET on Thursday. The three-judge panel that will hear the arguments has not been announced and the timing of the arguments means that they should rule on the motion ahead of next weekend’s trip to Atlanta to face the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact:

If the motion is denied, Elliott’s suspension would go into effect and remain in effect unless he wins his appeal of the district court’s decision. If it is granted, he will be able to keep playing until at least the ruling on the appeal of the district court’s denial of the injunction, the story said.

Source: WR Dez Bryant's (knee, ankle) injuries not serious

Ian Rapoport on Twitter - [Full Article]

Cowboys WR Dez Bryant’s ankle, which caused him to leave Sunday’s win over the Chiefs, is described as “not serious,” source said.

Fantasy Impact:

Bryant is considered day-to-day. A knee injury was also mentioned by HC Jason Garrett. This update still seems to fall right in line with what we all saw during the broadcast of the game: Bryant was seen jogging and trying to work the ankle/knee on the sidelines, but he didn't appear all that limited to the naked eye. With the game pretty much in hand at that point, perhaps there wasn't any urgency to get Bryant back on the field, so that could have played into the team's decision to keep him out.

Chiefs WR Albert Wilson (hamstring, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 9. With Wilson out, Demarcus Robinson should have a larger role in the offense. Given the matchup, he’s not a bad desperation start.
