Bears' Buster Skrine: Records four tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skrine posted four stops in the Bears' 27-23 victory over the Lions on Sunday.

Skrine averaged three tackles per game in his first year with the Bears in 2019 as the team's primary slot corner, and he posted a typical performance in the season opener. He'll likely continue to function as a low-upside IDP option.

Bears' Buster Skrine: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skrine (finger) is active for Sunday's game versus the Lions.

Skrine was a full participant in practice Thursday and Friday, so he shouldn't be held back in the season opener. The 31-year-old cornerback may only play in nickel packages, however, as Kyle Fuller and rookie Jaylon Johnson are projected to start in base defense.

Bears' Buster Skrine: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skrine (finger) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Detroit.

Skrine has logged two full practices since popping up on Thursday's injury report with a finger issue, so he appears to be trending in the right direction for Week 1. If he's able to suit up against the Lions on Sunday, Skrine stands to play a key role at cornerback behind Kyle Fuller and Jaylon Johnson.

Bears' Buster Skrine: Least productive season of career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skrine posted three tackles in the Bears' 21-19 victory over the Vikings in Week 17, and he ended the year with 47 tackles and two forced fumbles.

Skrine just completed his ninth year in the league, and, statistically, this was the worst season since his rookie campaign back in 2011. He's under contract with the Bears through 2021, and he'll likely continue to be a low-floor IDP option.

Bears' Buster Skrine: Posts solid numbers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skrine notched five tackles in Chicago's 20-13 victory over the Lions on Sunday.

This was the first time in five games that Skrine has recorded more than three tackles, and he's averaging just three stops per contest. He's also yet to force a fumble or pick off a pass, so he'll continue to be a poor fantasy option.

Jets' Buster Skrine: Headed to Windy City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skrine intends to sign a contract with the Bears when the new league year starts, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Skrine was decent for the Jets in 2018, racking up 58 tackles (52 solo) and one forced fumble in 14 games. The Bears could be concerned with a production drop from the 29-year-old, as he failed to record an interception or sack last season. Skrine may draw starts at cornerback for the Bears next season, which means unrestricted free agent Bryce Callahan could be departing Chicago.

Jets' Buster Skrine: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skrine (shoulder/hip) is active for Sunday's game versus the Dolphins.

Skrine was added to the injury report Friday when he practiced in a limited fashion, but it appears that was precautionary since he's ready to go. He continues to log a respectable workload in the Jets' secondary, but his IDP value is minimal. Skrine has made 36 tackles, 0.5 sacks and five pass breakups this year.

Jets' Buster Skrine: Added to injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skrine is questionable for Sunday's game at Buffalo with shoulder and hip injuries, Rich Cimini of reports.

Skrine had zero issues at practice until Friday, when he was listed as a limited participant. Rashard Robinson would likely take over at nickelback for the Jets should Skrine be unable to play Sunday.

Jets' Buster Skrine: Ready to go Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skrine (concussion) was a full participant in Friday's practice, Matt Stypulkoski of NJ Advance reports.

Skrine missed two consecutive games due to a concussion, but he now appears to have gotten fully healthy. The depth cornerback could be in line for a key defensive role against the Bears on Sunday, with Trumaine Johnson (quadriceps) considered doubtful and both Morris Claiborne (shoulder) and Marcus Maye (thumb) listed as questionable.

Jets' Buster Skrine: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skrine (concussion) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the VIkings.

Skrine did not practice again this week and will miss his second straight game. The 29-year-old will hope to clear the concussion protocol next week, while Darryl Roberts and Parry Nickerson are set for increased snaps at cornerback with starter Trumaine Johnson (quad) considered doubtful.

October 12, 2018 03:52 PM
Jets' Buster Skrine: Out for Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skrine (concussion) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Skrine exited last Sunday's game after sustaining the concussion and was unable to practice this week. Darryl Roberts should step in at starting cornerback with Parry Nickerson the nickelback, since starter Trumaine Johnson (quad) is listed as doubtful.

October 7, 2018 03:20 PM
Jets' Buster Skrine: Out for remainder of Sunday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skrine has been ruled out for the remainder Sunday's game with a head injury.

Skrine left Sunday's game after a blow to the head and immediately entered the league's concussion protocol. With Skrine out, rookie Parry Nickerson will slide into the nickel spot.

Jets' Buster Skrine: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skrine (knee) is active for Sunday's tilt against the Jaguars.

Skrine was questionable after his limited participation in Friday's practice. He'll figure to see his typical role as a top backup at corner for the Jets.

September 28, 2018 05:36 PM
Jets' Buster Skrine: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skrine (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Skrine was a limited participant in Friday's practice, but appears to be progressing in his recovery from a knee injury sustained during Gang Green's Week 3 loss to the Browns. If Skrine is unable to suit up Sunday, expect Parry Nickerson to benefit from an increased defensive workload.

September 27, 2018 12:56 PM
Jets' Buster Skrine: Absent from practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skrine (knee) was a non-participant in Wednesday's practice.

Skrine suffered a knee injury during Thursday's loss to the Browns and continues to work toward recovery. It remains to be seen how long the injury will sideline Skrine, but Parry Nickeson will continue to see increased defensive snaps as long as the nine-year veteran is out.

September 20, 2018 09:44 PM
Jets' Buster Skrine: Questionable to return with knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skrine injured his knee during Thursday's game against the Browns and is questionable to return.

Skrine racked up one tackle and half a sack before exiting. Parry Nickeson is slated to see some extra work at slot cornerback as long as Skrine is out.

September 11, 2018 02:32 PM
Jets' Buster Skrine: Leads team in tackles Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skrine posted a team-high seven solo tackles in Monday's win over the Lions.

Skrine played in 59 of the team's 70 defensive snaps Monday night in what was a stellar defensive performance from the Jets. The defensive back is coming off a 2017 campaign where he recorded a career-high 56 solo tackles, so Skrine appears to be picking up right where he left off.

November 1, 2017 09:24 PM
Jets' Buster Skrine: Ready to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skrine (concussion) will play Thursday against the Bills.

Skrine practiced in full Wednesday and presumably has cleared concussion protocol. His return is an opportunistic development for a Jets secondary that could be without top corner Morris Claiborne (foot).

October 31, 2017 08:28 PM
Jets' Buster Skrine: Returns to practice despite limitations
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skrine (concussion) practiced in a limited fashion Monday, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

Based on his return to practice, things seem to be trending upwards for Skrine's availability Thursday. With a depleted secondary of sorts on a short week, don't be surprised if the Jets are eager to get Skrine back on the field sooner than later. However, given the nature of head injuries, Skrine will likely have to practice in full before he's good to go.

October 27, 2017 10:40 PM
Jets' Buster Skrine: Listed as out for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skrine (concussion) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Connor Hughes of reports.

Skrine is continuing to recover from a Week 7 concussion he sustained against the Falcons. Sunday will be just the third game Skrine has missed in his seven-year career. He's racked up 30 tackles (27 solo), three pass breakups and one interception this season. Expect Juston Burris and Darryl Roberts to log more snaps in his absence.
