Some fantasy stars can be found on the injury report every week, but will they play? Here at No Huddle, we will give you the most updated injury report at the end of every week. Then on Sunday, stay tuned to our twitter account @No_HuddleFFB for the latest news!
NoHuddleFFB Week 10 Injury Analysis:
Chiefs @ Panthers:
Chiefs: Alex Smith is expected to back from his week off with a concussion/head injury. He isn’t a QB you necessarily want to be starting, but he could be a good desperation play. Spencer Ware will also be returning from his concussion this week as well. Jeremy Maclin has already been announced as Inactive for this week and fellow wide receiver Chris Conley was limited in practice all week until Friday, and he should play.
Panthers: Jonathan Stewart took off two days this week, but he practiced in full on Friday and is expected to go Sunday.
Broncos @ Saints:
Broncos: Broncos have no injuries that should impact your fantasy lineups.
Saints: Saints have no injuries that should impact your fantasy lineups.
Rams @ Jets:
Rams: Todd Gurley did not practice Wednesday or Thursday of this week, but he did practice in full on Friday. He is still listed as questionable going into the game Sunday but will be a game-time decision. We expect him to play, but stay tuned to early reports before the game.
Jets: Ryan Fitzpatrick has dealt with a knee injury all week. He has said that he is good to play, but Todd Bowles has noted that Fitz would be a game-time decision. Brandon Marshall was listed on reports earlier in the week with a foot injury, but it looks like he will be ready to play.
Packers @ Titans:
Packers: James Starks is listed as questionable returning from his knee injury. We think it is likely that he plays, but don’t think he will have much fantasy impact. He will be a desperate flex play. Randall Cobb has dealt with a hamstring dating back to last week, but he will battle through it and play again this week. Tight end Jared Cook will likely be out again.
Titans: Both Demarco Murray and Derrick Henry had been listed on the injury report most of the week but both are off and expected to play Sunday. Look for Henry to get a little more work than he has the last few weeks. If you own Murray he is an obvious start, Henry could be a Flex play. Delanie Walker had the groin injury he played through last week and practice in full all week so feel comfortable starting him.
Falcons @ Eagles:
Falcons: Both Tevin Coleman and Jacob Tamme will be inactive again this week for the Falcons.
Eagles: Tight ends Brent Celek and Trey Burton are both expected to play this week.
Vikings @ Redskins:
Vikings: Vikings have no injuries that should impact your fantasy lineups.
Redskins: DeSean Jackson hasn’t practiced all week and is listed as doubtful to play. We expect him to be inactive Sunday.
Texans @ Jaguars:
Texans: Both running backs Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue are expected to play. Wide receiver Will Fuller V is listed as questionable, but we expect him to go as well.
Jaguars: Allen Hurns passed concussion protocol and is should play Sunday.
Bears @ Buccaneers:
Bears: Eddie Royal is the only Bear on the injury report worth mentioning. He is listed as questionable with a toe injury but we expect him to play.
Buccaneers: Jamies Winston is good to go against the Bears tomorrow. As well is wide receiver Mike Evans who cleared concussion protocol. The best news for the Bucs is it appears that they will get RB Doug Martin back this week. Running backs Jacquizz Rodgers and Antone Smith will be out though.
Dolphins @ Chargers:
Dolphins: Jarvis Landry is listed as questionable with a toe injury, but we expect him to play against the Chargers.
Chargers: We have joked all year about how the Chargers continue to lose guys to knee injuries. Well, enough joking about, seriously, what’s the deal? Both Tyrell Williams and Travis Benjamin are listed as questionable with knee injuries. We think that Williams will play, but it is likely that Benjamin will be inactive. Keep an eye on reports before the game. Believe it or not, tight ends Antonio Gates and Hunter Henry both have had knee issues this week as well. Henry is questionable, but we believe both will play.
49ers @ Cardinals:
49ers: The long awaited return of Carlos Hyde could happen this week. Then again, it may not. It appears that Hyde is a true game-time decision, so keep an eye on his status tomorrow. If he does not play then DaJuan Harris will be the back to own. He had a good week against the Saints last week, but would be more of a desperate play against the Cardinals.
Cardinals: Cardinals have no injuries that should impact your fantasy lineups.
Cowboys @ Steelers:
Cowboys: Dez Bryant is listed as questionable, but has practiced all week and we fully expect him to play.
Steelers: Ladarius Green will be active this week and we will get our first look at him in a Steelers uniform. He is a desperate play at TE this week, but he could become a TE1 down the stretch.
Sunday Night Football:
Seahawks @ Patriots:
Seahawks: Running back Christine Michael popped up on the injury report late in the week with a hamstring injury. He is a game-time decision. Knowing that it is the late game on Sunday, it will be hard to wait to see his status before the game. We recommend playing someone else if you can. Thomas Rawls will be inactive. Jimmy Graham sat out of Wednesday’s practice but he should be ready to roll on Sunday night.
Patriots: Dion Lewis will be active Sunday night and make his long awaited return to the field. Chris Hogan who is a desperate flex play, is going to be a game time decision. Therefore, if you can find a replacement for him before Sunday night, we recommend it.
Monday Night Football:
Bengals @ Giants
Bengals: Bengals have no injuries that should impact your fantasy lineups.
Giants: Giants have no injuries that should impact your fantasy lineups.
As always stay tuned on twitter to @No_HuddleFFB for up to date information before the games on Sunday morning!
