Mark Morales-Smith Nov 17th 6:04 AM EST.

We cover all the fantasy-relevant injuries right here and let you know what other options you may have. This list will be updated up until Sunday. 

Week 11 Injury Report


Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals (Hamstring) Game Time Decision

Murray was sidelined in Week 10 with a hamstring injury and is in serious danger of missing more games. The Cardinals have a Week 13 bye and it’s not out of the realm of possibilities that we don’t see him until after that. Especially if Colt McCoy continues to win games. However, McCoy did pop up on the injury report with a knee issue that forced him to miss a few snaps last week, but he’s expected to be ready to go in Week 11.

Matthew Stafford, Las Angeles Rams (Concussion) Expected to play

Stafford returned to practice on Wednesday after sitting out Week 10 which is a positive sign. However, he is yet to clear the concussion protocol despite his head coach not being sure if he was ever diagnosed with a concussion. He is currently trending in the right direction, but it’s tough to tell with brain injuries. His backup John Wolford was not able to practice on Wednesday due to a neck injury.

Ryan Tannehill, Tennessee Titans (Ankle) IN

Tannehill played last week and was able to practice in full on Tuesday and Wednesday. He has been removed from the injury report and will suit up and start on Thursday Night Football.

Jameis Winston, New Orleans Saints (Back, Ankle) Expected to be active as backup

Saints coach Dennis Allen came out this week and stated that he doesn’t expect Winston to get back to 100% this season. However, he has been suiting up as the backup as of late. Andy Dalton will once again start this week. It’s unclear if it’s a football or injury decision.

Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills (Elbow) Expected to play

Allen has been limited in practice this week as he fights through an elbow injury he suffered at the end of Week 9, but he is expected to suit up this week just like he did last week. He did struggle last week, nonetheless, he also struggled the two previous weeks before the injury. Case Keenum is the next man up if he was to suffer a setback.

P.J. Walker, Carolina Panthers (Ankle) OUT

Walker has been ruled out for Week 11 due to an ankle injury. Baker Mayfield has been named the Week 11 starter. How he plays could impact how this plays out long-term. Walker has been better than Mayfield this season, but his job is far from untouchable.

Carson Wentz, Washington Commanders (Finger) OUT

Wentz has not yet been cleared by the medical staff to return to resume practice despite passing the four-week window that he is ineligible to return due to being placed on injured reserve. There is a strong possibility that Taylor Heinecke will remain the starter moving forward regardless of Wentz’s health.

Running Backs

Ezekiel Elliott, Dallas Cowboys (Knee) Expected to play

After sitting out last week Zeke has been limited in practice this week. He is trending in the right direction but is not yet a lock to play in Week 11. If he does sit out Tony Pollard will be a must-start once again. If he does suit up both backs become Flex options with a wide range of outcomes.

Khalil Herbert, Chicago Bears (Hip)  OUT

Herbert landed on IR this week after suffering a hip injury against the Lions in Week 10 and being almost immediately ruled out. He will now miss at least four games. This gives a huge bump to David Montgomery and Trestan Ebner is a guy to keep an eye on as the RB2 in Chicago.

J.D. McKissic, Washington Commanders (Neck) OUT

McKissic has not yet returned to practice due to a neck injury that has kept him out the past few weeks. It doesn’t look like he’ll be suiting this week either. His absence gives Antonio Gibson a nice bump in PPR leagues. If he does return that entire backfield is a fantasy disaster.

Jamaal Williams, Detroit Lions (Illness) Expected to play

Williams was not able to practice Wednesday due to an undisclosed illness. We assume he will be able to play this week but will monitor the situation throughout the week. If he was to miss time D’Andre Swift and Justin Jackson would get a boost, but it’s unclear how snaps would be split as the team continues to limit Swift.

Gus Edwards, Baltimore Ravens (Hamstring) Expected to play

Edwards returned to practice this week after recovering over the bye week. He is on track to play this week and is expected to suit up. If active he is the presumed RB1 and makes Kenyan Drake desperation Flex at best.

Najee Harris, Pittsburgh Steelers (Knee) Expected to play

Harris is experiencing discomfort in his knee which is limiting him at practice. However, it is not expected to limit his on-field ability. If it did for some reason cost him playing time Jaylen Warren would be the beneficiary.

Jerick McKinnon, Kansas City Chiefs (Hamstring, Shoulder) Expected to play

McKinnon has been dealing with these injuries for a few weeks now and playing through them contributing through the air. It’s unlikely he misses any time, but if he did it would make Isiah Pacheco much more intriguing.

Mark Ingram, New Orleans Saints (Ankle) OUT

It looks like Ingram is going to miss another game this week. He has been unable to practice and the team signed David Johnson to the practice squad. There is a good chance he is elevated to the active roster to fill in a limited role.

Deon Jackson, Indianapolis Colts (Knee) Expected to play

Jackson sat out last week and is still unable to practice. He’s trending in the wrong direction. His absence doesn’t mean much but could mean a few more touches for Jonathan Taylor.

Ty Montgomery, New England Patriots (Shoulder) OUT

Montgomery was expected to play the “James White” role in this offense but went down in Week 1. He has now been ruled out for the year after undergoing surgery on his injured shoulder. Rhamondre Stevenson will continue to see the boost in the passing game for the rest of the season.

Wide Receivers

Cooper Kupp, Las Angeles Rams (Ankle) OUT

Kupp has been placed on injured reserve after undergoing surgery for a high-ankle sprain. He will miss at least four weeks and could be out for the season with the Rams’ season spiraling. Allen Robinson, Tyler Higbee, Ben Skowronek, and Van Jefferson should all get a bump.

Ja’Marr Chase, Cincinnati Bengals (Hip) OUT

Chase will miss at least one more week with a hip injury. The team hopes to have him back in Week 12, but he is far from a lock for that either. Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd will continue to see a bump while he’s sidelined.  

Keenan Allen, Las Angeles Chargers (Hamstring) Expected to play

Allen returned to practice in a limited capacity on Wednesday. This situation is unclear and will have to be monitored throughout the week. Our best guess as of now is that he’s on the wrong side of questionable.  His return would be a huge boost for Justin Herbert and the offense as a whole.

Mike Williams, Las Angeles Chargers (Ankle) Expected to play

Williams returned to practice in a limited capacity on Wednesday. This situation is unclear and will have to be monitored throughout the week. He probably has a worse chance to suit up than Allen but would also be a huge boost for Herbert and the offense.

DeAndre Carter, Las Angeles Chargers (Ribs) Expected to play

Carter was limited with a rib injury on Wednesday. He’s likely to suit up but is worth mentioning due to the unclear status of Allen and Williams. He could be a viable flex option if both are sidelined.

Jerry Jeudy, Denver Broncos (Ankle) OUT

After going down with what looked like a disastrous injury last week Jeudy actually has a chance to play this week. The injury wasn’t overly serious despite him rolling around on the ground in agony. He still should be viewed as very questionable for this week, however, this doesn’t appear to be a long-term injury.

Marquise Brown, Arizona Cardinals (Foot) Expected to play

Brown has been designated to return from injured reserve this week. The team now has three weeks to elevate him to the active roster. There is a chance he plays this week.

Brandin Cooks, Houston Texans (Hip, Wrist) Expected to play

Cooks didn’t practice on Wednesday but played through the same designation last week. There is more to this than injury and you can see that on the field and on his social media accounts.

Juju Smith-Schuster, Kansas City Chiefs (Concussion) OUT

Juju got absolutely blown up last week and left with a concussion. We don’t do predictions on concussions from the previous week. We’ll just have to wait until later in the week. Mecole Hardman and Marquez Valdes-Scantling are both questionable for this week with what’s being called an illness although Hardman’s seems more serious as it cost him last week as well. This could be the Kadarius Toney and Travis Kelce show this week for KC.


Mecole Hardman, Kansas City Chiefs (Abdomen) OUT

Hardman has been sent to injured reserve with an abdomen injury and will miss at least the next four weeks. 


Romeo Doubs, Green Bay Packers (Ankle) OUT

Doubs has been ruled out for TNF with an ankle injury. He could continue to miss additional time as well. The team did designate Randall Cobb to return from I.R., but it’s not likely he returns on this shortened week.

Tight Ends

Mark Andrews, Baltimore Ravens (Shoulder) Expected to play

After missing Week 9 prior to the Ravens’ bye week Andrews returned to practice on Wednesday. He is trending in the right direction to play this week. His return makes Isaiah Likely a volatile start at best.

Dallas Goedert, Philadelphia Eagles (Shoulder) OUT

Goedert has been placed on injured reserve with a shoulder injury. This is a brutal blow for the Eagles and fantasy owners. Jack Stoll and the recently activated Tyree Jackson are the favorites to fill in as the TE1 in Philly. Neither is expected to be overly relevant.

Zach Ertz, Arizona Cardinals (Knee) OUT

Ertz went down with a season-ending knee injury in Week 10. This is another crushing blow for fantasy owners. Rookie Trey McBride will slide into his role. He is worth monitoring.

Darren Waller, Las Vegas Raiders (Hamstring) OUT

Waller who had been sidelined for weeks was sent to I.R. prior to Week 10. He will miss at least three more games. Foster Moreau will be the TE1 in Vegas until he returns. He’s a decent streaming option.

Gerald Everett, Las Angeles Chargers (Groin) Game time decision 

Everett was forced out of Week 10 with a groin injury. He was limited in practice on Wednesday. Groins can be tricky and they tend to linger. This is one to monitor throughout the week. With Donald Parham already on I.R. Tre McKitty would be the TE1 and depending on who plays could be a necessary weapon.

David Njoku, Cleveland Browns (Ankle) Game time decision 

Njoku planned on returning last week but was eventually ruled out. He started off this week with DNP on Wednesday. His status for Week 11 is completely up in the air and needs to be monitored. If he is out Harrison Bryant will serve as the Browns’ uninspiring TE1.
