Dez Bryant says he's playing; fantasy owners should start him
For Week 10, the fantasy football injury report may look a little different, but the information is still the same. Below is a list of players and their injury designations. Because it is extremely important to check the inactive report before game time (as Zach Ertz owners in Week 9 are aware), this is the list heading into Sunday morning. Players can still be ruled out even if they did practice and are questionable. And, on the other side, players may be active even if they didn't get in the all-important Friday practice. Always check to make sure a player is active before his game.
Teams on bye: Baltimore, Kansas City, Oakland, Philadelphia
Note: Players are listed in alphabetical order, grouped by position.
Jameis Winston (shoulder), QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Winston will be out for Week 10 and likely Week 11 as well. Fantasy owners should have a backup plan in place. Ryan Fitzpatrick is not the worst option either.
Ezekiel Elliott (suspension), RB, Dallas Cowboys
The latest in the legal drama is that Elliott is suspended. At least for Week 10, and probably through Week 15.
Matt Forte (knee), RB, New York Jets
The Jets have a bye in Week 11, and Forte is hoping to be back on the field for Week 12.
Jeremy Hill (ankle), RB, Cincinnati Bengals
Hill was placed on injured reserve earlier this week. He will be out for the rest of the season.
Mike Evans (suspension), WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Evans is serving a one-game suspension. He'll be back in Week 11.
Chris Hogan (shoulder), WR, New England Patriots
The Patriots haven't released much information about Hogan's injury but it is concerning that he's still not practicing the week following their bye.
Zay Jones (knee), WR, Buffalo Bills
Jones was injured in Week 9 but played through it. He may be able to play in Week 11.
Players in 1 p.m. ET games
Jamison Crowder (hamstring), WR, Washington Redskins
After missing Week 9, Crowder did practice this week and seems likely to play. However, he's a WR3 for Week 10.
Kenny Golladay (hamstring), WR, Detroit Lions
Odds are that Golladay will be out again, but odds are that he's not anywhere near starting lineups in the first place.
T.Y. Hilton (groin), WR, Indianapolis Colts
Hilton was added to the injury report on Thursday but all signs point to him playing. However, he likely won't hit the 5/175/2 line he had in Week 10.
Marqise Lee (knee), WR, Jacksonville Jaguars
Lee scored his first touchdown in Week 9 and has been playing through the knee injury for weeks. He's a low WR2/high WR3 for Week 10.
Charles Clay (knee), TE, Buffalo Bills
Clay has been out since Week 5, but the team is optimistic that they will have him back in Week 11. He's a TE1 if active.
Jordan Reed (hamstring), TE, Washington Redskins
After missing Week 9, Reed seems truly questionable for Week 10. Fantasy owners should plan on keeping him on the bench as he may be limited even if active.
Delanie Walker (ankle), TE, Tennessee Titans
Walker has yet to miss a game with the ankle injury. Given that he's played through it before, he'll be a TE1 in Week 10.
Randy Bullock (back), K, Cincinnati Bengals
Bullock missed Week 9 and is in danger of missing Week 10. Fantasy owners should have another kicker ready for Week 10.
Players in 4:25 p.m. ET games
Dez Bryant (knee/ankle), WR, Dallas Cowboys
Bryant has said he is going to play, and while players aren't always the most reliable, odds are he'll be out there. If he's active, start him.
Players in 8:30 p.m. ET game
Danny Amendola (knee), WR, New England Patriots
With Chris Hogan out, Amendola will play and potentially see more targets. However, in a tough matchup, he's a WR3 at best.
Emmanuel Sanders (ankle), WR, Denver Broncos
Sanders played through the injury last week although only managed one reception for 30 yards. He's a WR3 this week.
Martellus Bennett (shoulder), TE, New England Patriots
The newest Patriot will likely sit in Week 10. Fantasy owners should treat him as a Rob Gronkowski handcuff.
Players in Monday night game
Damien Williams (illness), RB, Miami Dolphins
Illnesses rarely keep players out and Williams should be fine to play on Monday night. He'll share work with Kenyan Drake and is only a RB3.
