Fantasy Football Injury Report: Week 10 (2019)
Welcome to the dreaded injury report. Professional football is a violent game, and your fantasy players are going to miss time because of it. Hopefully, you don’t have many names on this list.
Devonta Freeman (RB – ATL)
A third-quarter ankle injury ended Devonta Freeman’s day prematurely. Brian Hill played the majority of the running back snaps after Freeman’s exit. He is the clear beneficiary if Freeman is forced to miss any time and likely the top waiver add unless we receive overwhelmingly positive news about Freeman by Tuesday.
Saquon Barkley (RB – NYG)
It was adding injury to insult as Saquon Barkley had just about the worst rushing performance you can imagine on Sunday. Barkley went to the locker room to undergo X-rays but returned to the game. With two weeks until the Giants’ next game, expect Barkley to be fine.
Tyreek Hill (WR – KC)
For a brief moment, Tyreek Hill was down and pointing to his left shoulder. He missed a handful of plays before returning and looking like his normal self. He’s fine.
Austin Hooper (TE – ATL)
Fantasy’s best tight end left in the fourth quarter with a knee/ankle injury. It is unclear exactly what happened, but he was limping heavily when exiting the field. Losing Austin Hooper would be a massive blow to fantasy owners as replacing him is nearly impossible. Hopefully, it is not too serious.
Ty Johnson (RB – DET)
An already depleted backfield may be short another man as Ty Johnson sustained a concussion during the Lions’ loss to the Bears. He will go through the protocol. J.D. McKissic had a nice PPR day in Johnson’s stead. He will be the most valuable member of this backfield regardless of Johnson’s status, for whatever that’s worth.
Jordan Wilkins (RB – IND)
Marlon Mack’s backup suffered an ankle injury and was forced from the game. Nyheim Hines absorbed all of Jordan Wilkins’ touches but is still firmly behind Mack. This is not a hugely relevant injury.
