Week 10 Fantasy Football Injury Updates: Hunter Henry, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Ladarius Green, Martellus Bennett

Hunter Henry

Hunter Henry

For Week 10, the injury report is back to being a long one, much to the chagrin of fantasy owners. Several players have been ruled out already; but as always some of the questionable players are legitimately questionable and some are likely going to play. Four teams on bye also shrinks the player pool somewhat.

Be sure to check the inactive report prior to kickoff if you are worried about a specific player. As for the quarterback and tight end position, Jacob Tamme has already been declared out, while Jared Cook is doubtful and likely won't play. The running back and wide receiver injury updates are a little longer, so be sure to check them out before setting your Week 10 lineup.

Positional Rankings: QB I RB I WR I TE I DST I K I Flex

Teams on bye: Buffalo, Detroit, Indianapolis, Oakland

Note: All games are on Sunday, Nov. 13 and all times are ET.

Ryan Fitzpatrick (knee), QB, New York Jets vs. Los Angeles Rams, 1 p.m.

After spraining his knee in Week 9, Fitzpatrick was able to practice this week. He will likely suit up and play in Week 10, but fantasy owners need to be very desperate to trust him to lead their team to victory. He has struggled all year, and the Rams are a tough defense. This game has the potential to be a low-scoring affair with two struggling offenses and two decent defenses. Leave Fitzpatrick on fantasy benches.

Hunter Henry (knee), TE, San Diego Chargers vs. Miami Dolphins, 4:05 p.m.

After missing Week 9 with a knee injury, Henry practiced this week and is on track to play in Week 10. However, with Antonio Gates healthy, the Chargers’ offense can't support two top tight ends. Gates has four touchdowns on the year compared to Henry's three. However, Gates has consistently had more receptions than Henry and is a better bet for fantasy points. Henry is worth a bye-week fill-in for Week 10 with WR Travis Benjamin doubtful to play. Henry may play in the slot instead of out wide, which will help his value in PPR leagues. He's a TE2, but lower than Gates.

Ladarius Green (ankle), TE, Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Dallas Cowboys, 4:25 p.m.

While Green technically doesn't appear on the official injury report because he has yet to be activated from the PUP list, fantasy owners are still interested in his status. It is likely that he will be activated from the PUP list for this afternoon’s game and he may even see the field. Fantasy owners should not count on him doing much, but he is certainly worth a stash in deeper leagues. The Steelers have had a number of injuries to their pass catchers, and Green can certainly help. However, without seeing him in game action, fantasy owners should be hesitant to start him.

Martellus Bennett (ankle), TE, New England Patriots vs. Seattle Seahawks, 8:30 p.m.

Bennett has been on the injury report for weeks and has suited up to play every game. He's going to be fine to play tonight, however, his numbers have been dropping with Rob Gronkowski looking like his old self. Originally it was thought that the Patriots could support two top-tier tight ends, but the reality is Gronk is a clear No. 1 and Bennett is a low TE2 with the chance to score a touchdown in a high-powered offense. He hasn't had more than 50 receiving yards in the past three games, and that likely will not change in Week 10.
