Fantasy Football Injury Report: Week 10

Nov 13, 2017

Welcome to the dreaded injury report. Professional football is a violent game, and your fantasy players are going to miss time because of it. We saw a bunch of relevant players go down in Week 10, some more significant than others. As always, hopefully, you don’t have many names on this list.

Aaron Jones (RB – GB)
The Packers’ starting RB left early Sunday with a knee injury later revealed to be an MCL sprain. It is highly unlikely that he plays next week and even when he does return, if at all, he likely won’t have the same role. Ty Montgomery would return to RB1 status, except…

Ty Montgomery (RB – GB)
Ty Montgomery also left the game shortly before halftime with a reaggravation of his rib injury. It is unclear how severe his injury is. If he is able to go next week, he will handle all the touches he can. Montgomery looked great last week and without Jones, stands to be a PPR RB1, but he needs to get back on the field. If not, Jamaal Williams is looking at a huge opportunity share as the last back standing.

Brett Hundley (QB – GB)
As if losing both of their RBs wasn’t bad enough, Brett Hundley strained his hamstring as well. He was able to finish the game, but these things tend to swell up overnight and it’s not guaranteed he can go against Baltimore next week. The Packers offense as a whole has already been suffering from the downgrade from Aaron Rodgers to Hundley. The drop off from Hundley to Joe Callahan would be even worse. Let’s hope Hundley can get healthy.

Jacoby Brissett (QB – IND)
The Colts offensive line, unsurprisingly, betrayed Jacoby Brissett on Sunday. Brissett took a number of hits and was slow to get up multiple times. Ultimately, he took one too many shots to the head and is now in the concussion protocol. We definitely don’t want to see Scott Tolzien again.

Marcus Mariota (QB – TEN)
Marcus Mariota took a big hit on a scamper toward the end zone and injured his left shoulder. He reportedly felt good after the game and shouldn’t miss any time given that it’s his left shoulder. Nevertheless, given that his next game is on Thursday, it is something to monitor.

Rob Kelley (RB – WAS)
Rob Kelley sprained his ankle and his knee last week. He is probably not playing this week and might be done for the season. Samaje Perine is a must-add in all leagues. He will split time with Chris Thompson, but will be the goal line back and the between the tackles guy.

Devonta Freeman (RB – ATL)
Devonta Freeman is also in the concussion protocol. He will obviously need to get cleared to play next week. If he cannot, Tevin Coleman looked as good as he has all season as the main back. Terron Ward also saw some burn, but Coleman could be an RB1 if he actually received a full workload. If you own Freeman, I hope you also own Coleman.

Will Fuller (WR – HOU)
Adding injury to insult following Deshaun Watson‘s ACL tear, Will Fuller, whose fantasy value was already depleted, hurt his ribs in Sunday’s blowout defeat against the Rams. Fuller’s WR2 status departed with Watson and now he may not even be on the field. Bruce Ellington would be the beneficiary, but he’s not a fantasy option.
