Sunday morning update: Rankings have been updated for Sunday morning, but we are still waiting on a few players to see where their injuries stand. Let’s take a look at some of the injury news for fantasy
1 pm games
David Njoku is questionable, but says he will play and he’s in an early game, so we’ll know where he stands.
Josh Reynolds is out and DJ Chark has been removed from I.R. and will play. I’d probably stay away from Chark for now, but Amon-Ra St. Brown should be the focal point.
Gus Edwards is questionable, but practiced all week. This is a difficult situation to predict, as Kenyan Drake has played well in Edwards’ absence. It’s a good enough matchup that both could be started, but it’s risky.
Mark Andrews is questionable, but did get a full practice in on Friday. I expect him to play.
4 pm games
Ezekiel Elliott is questionable, but will reportedly play. Tony Pollard has proven he has more upside than Elliott, but we should see them split work once again. Both can be started in fantasy.
Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler are out and Kendall Hinton is questionable. Courtland Sutton and Greg Dulcich are starts, while Hinton, if he plays, has some sleeper appeal in PPR leagues.
Davante Adams is questionable, but seems like he will go. He is in a late game, so have a backup ready just in case.
Sunday Night Football
JuJu Smith-Schuster is out with a concussion and Mecole Hardman is now on I.R. The Chiefs No. 1 receiver Travis Kelce is still there, but Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Justin Watson, and Kadarius Toney will be the likely top receivers. All three have some fantasy appeal, but Toney is my favorite of the group.
Both Mike Williams and Keenan Allen are questionable, but appear ready to go. We wait on official word, which hopefully will come earlier than when inactives are announced for SNF.
Monday Night Football
Colt McCoy has been cleared while Kyler Murray is questionable. If you want to wait on Murray, you’ll need McCoy or Jimmy Garoppolo to start for the Monday night game if Murray can’t go.
DeAndre Hopkins is questionable for Monday night. Beat writers think he plays, so I’d hold out on him and try to grab a backup 49ers or Cardinals receiver just in case.
Marquise Brown might be activated for Monday night. He has fantasy appeal, but I’d like to know for sure he’s going to be activated before waiting on him.
Welcome to Week 11 of the NFL season. We are quickly closing in on the fantasy football playoffs and if you started Justin Fields, CeeDee Lamb, Justin Jefferson, or Christian Kirk last week, you’re probably feeling pretty good about your fantasy results today.
This week we have the high-powered Dolphins offense on bye and the slowly improving Buccaneers as well. We’ll also be without the Seahawks upstart offense and the sometimes upstarty Jaguars offense.
Injury news to monitor
Matthew Stafford was ruled out last week with a concussion. He was able to return to practice, so he should have a good chance of getting cleared this week against the Saints.
Cooper Kupp is dealing with an ankle injury that will likely keep him out a few games. Allen Robinson should see more work along with Van Jefferson And Ben Skowroneck, but it’s hard to trust one for a big bump in fantasy production. Tyler Higbee could end up getting the best bump.
Kyler Murray couldn’t go last week due to a hamstring injury. There is no real timetable on his injury, so there’s a chance we see Colt McCoy again this week against the 49ers.
Ezekiel Elliott appeared close to returning from his knee injury, but in the end was rested against the Packers. He should have a better chance at playing against the Vikings this week.
Khalil Herbert left Sunday’s game with a hip injury. We have yet to hear any follow-up on that injury, so we’re still waiting as of this writing. If he misses time, David Montgomery would get a big boost.
Zach Ertz is expected to miss multiple weeks with a knee injury. Targets should remain concentrated on Rondale Moore and DeAndre Hopkins for the most part.
Jerry Jeudy managed to avoid a longterm injury it seems, but he could miss time with his ankle injury. Kendall Hinton was the next man up in Denver.
JuJu Smith-Schuster suffered a concussion in Week 10 and will need to be cleared before returning for their SNF game against the Chargers.
Mecole Hardman is dealing with an abdominal injury, so there’s not much insight into when he might return. We’ll need to keep an eye on practice reports.
Teams on bye
Week 11: Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins, Seattle Seahawks, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
