Teams on bye in Week 10: Philadelphia Eagles, Baltimore Ravens, Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders
New Orleans Saints vs. Buffalo Bills
- Michael Thomas was listed on this week’s injury report with an ankle injury, but his Week 10 status was never in doubt. He was removed from the team’s final injury report after getting in a full practice on Friday. He’s good to go against Buffalo.
- Charles Clay (Q) appears to be on track to make his return to the field after a four-week absence. He injured his knee in Week 5, suffering a torn meniscus and sprained MCL. Subsequently, he had surgery to remove a piece of the torn meniscus. Clay practiced on a limited basis all week, but coach Sean McDermott has hinted all week that he expects Clay to be available on Sunday. Prior to going down in Week 5, he was a top 5 TE in Weeks 1-4.
Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago Bears
Packers – No fantasy relevant players listed on the NFL Week 10 Injury Report
Bears – No fantasy relevant players listed on the NFL Week 10 Injury Report
Cleveland Browns vs. Detroit Lions
Browns – No fantasy relevant players listed on the NFL Week 10 Injury Report
- Kenny Golladay (Q) has been out for nearly two months while battling a hamstring injury. He was limited in practice all week, so he has a shot to play in Week 10. If he sits again, Golden Tate and Marvin Jones will continue to dominate targets.
Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Indianapolis Colts
Steelers – No fantasy relevant players listed on the NFL Week 10 Injury Report
- T.Y. Hilton (Q) popped up on the injury report this week with a groin injury. I always raise an eyebrow when players pop up on the report in the middle of the week. Owners will definitely need to confirm he’ll be active on Sunday. If he plays, there’s a risk of re-injury given that the groin muscles are stressed with quick changes of direction, cutting, and sprinting – all things that a wide receiver has to do.
Los Angeles Chargers vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Chargers – No fantasy relevant players listed on the NFL Week 10 Injury Report
- Marqise Lee (Q) has been on the injury report all year with various ailments. This week, he’s on the report with a knee injury, which kept him out of practice on Wednesday. He returned for limited practices on Thursday and Friday. Given that Lee has yet to miss a game this year, he should be fine for Sunday but owners will need to double check on Sunday morning.
New York Jets vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
- Matt Forte (O) has been ruled out for Week 10 due to swelling and soreness he’s been experiencing in his knee. Worth noting, this is the same knee that Forte had arthroscopic surgery on during the off-season, so this is something that is alarming. There’s a chance Forte could miss multiple weeks, making Bilal Powell a strong play this week and potentially beyond.
- Jameis Winston (O) will miss at least the next two weeks as he continues to struggle to return from various shoulder injuries to his right arm. He sprained his AC joint in Week 6 and then subsequently bruised his deltoid two weeks later. As a result, his play has suffered, and he hasn’t been 100% for almost a month. Given his poor play and the fear of worsening the injury, the Bucs have decided to shut Winston down for at least two weeks. In the meantime, Ryan Fitzpatrick will be under center.
Cincinnati Bengals vs. Tennessee Titans
- Jeremy Hill (IR) will not play for the second consecutive week and is out for the remainder of the year with an ankle injury. No one was starting Hill in their lineups anyway, but this is worth mentioning as Joe Mixon will be the lead back the rest of the way without needing to look over his shoulder.
- Delanie Walker (Q) continues to be listed on the injury report after suffering bone bruise in his ankle three weeks ago. He was able to play on limited snaps last week and escaped without a setback, so Walker isn’t really in danger of missing Week 10. He should see an increase in his snap count this week.
Minnesota Vikings vs. Washington Redskins
- Teddy Bridgewater will make his incredible return from a dislocated knee two years ago. You have to be excited for Bridgewater’s return, given that few people expected Bridgewater to ever play again in the NFL. He was just activated off IR this week, so he will need a few weeks to get back up to speed with his team, but he could become the starter for the last few weeks of the season. In the meantime, Case Keenum will continue to start with Sam Bradford headed to IR.
- Jordan Reed (Q) and Jamison Crowder (Q) are both dealing with hamstring injuries. I feel more confident about Crowder suiting up this week than I do for Reed. This is because Reed was ruled out very early last week, which usually indicates a multi-week injury. Crowder was close to playing last week but was ultimately held out because he stated that he lacked explosiveness and speed. These are the last pieces of the puzzle when coming back from a hamstring injury, so this tells me that he almost played last week. Both players bear monitoring tomorrow morning when inactives are released at 11:30 am EST
Houston Texans vs Los Angeles Rams
- C.J. Fiedorowicz is set to make his return in Week 10 off IR due to a concussion sustained in Week 2. He is expected to start and is an interesting name for TE needy teams.
Rams – No fantasy relevant players listed on the NFL Week 10 Injury Report
Dallas Cowboys vs. Atlanta Falcons
- Dez Bryant (Q) didn’t practice on Wednesday or Thursday due to knee and ankle injuries sustained in Week 9. However, he returned to practice on Friday, and is trending in the right direction for Sunday vs. the Falcons. Even at less than 100%, Dez is a strong play in what appears to be a high scoring game.
- Devonta Freeman was limited this week in practice with a knee injury but is on track to play Sunday after the team removed him from the final injury report.
- Julio Jones missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday with an ankle injury but returned for a limited practice on Friday. He will play against the Cowboys.
New York Giants vs. San Francisco 49ers
Giants – No fantasy relevant players listed on the NFL Week 10 Injury Report
- George Kittle (O) will not play in Week 10 with an ankle injury that he suffered in Week 9. Backup TE, Garrett Celek, will start and is a sneaky start in Week 10. The Giants have allowed a TD to opposing tight ends in every game this season.
New England Patriots vs. Denver Broncos
- Chris Hogan (O) will not play due to a shoulder injury suffered two weeks ago. He didn’t practice at all this week, so he’s not close to returning. His name will be on this list again next weekend.
- Danny Amendola (Q) was limited in practice all week with a knee injury, but he’s in no danger of missing Week 10. With Hogan out, he should see a nice increase in targets, though he has a tough match up with Chris Harris, Jr. in the slot for the Broncos.
- C.J. Anderson got banged up last week with an ankle injury, but he is on track to play in Week 10 after getting in a full practice on Friday.
- Emmanuel Sanders (Q) continues to be listed on the injury report with an ankle sprain from a few weeks ago. He didn’t suffer any setbacks in last week’s game, so he’s not in danger of missing Week 10 in a good matchup against a poor New England defense.
