Here are the key fantasy-relevant injury situations we’ll be monitoring with the fantasy football injury rundown. Both for this week’s action and moving forward. Also, be sure to check out our Week 11 waiver wire and FAAB recommendations.
Also, be sure to join us in the FullTime Fantasy Discord Channel for injury updates throughout the week.
Cooper Kupp (WR) Los Angeles Rams – Easily one of the most impactful injuries of a brutal season, Kupp will miss 4-6 weeks with a high-ankle sprain. The ankle will require surgery and could end Kupp’s season altogether. With the Rams virtually out of playoff contention, there will be little reason to bring Kupp back in a lost season.
Zach Ertz (TE) Arizona Cardinals – Ertz was carted off the field on Sunday and will miss the remainder of the 2022 season with a knee injury. Trey McBride will take over as the starter.
Dallas Goedert (TE) Philadelphia Eagles – A shoulder injury will keep Goedert sidelined for multiple weeks. Week 10 proved to be a devastating blow for the tight end position. A spot that is already dangerously thin. Jack Stoll, who plays 34% of snaps but has just 7 targets, is the next man up.
Keenan Allen (WR) Los Angeles Chargers – Allen (hamstring) could return to practice this week. The veteran wideout originally hurt his hamstring in Week 1 and tried to return in Week 7. Even if he suits up in Week 11, Allen will likely be on a limited snap count. We recommend a wait-and-see approach before inserting Allen back into fantasy lineups.
Mike Williams (WR) Los Angeles Chargers – The Chargers could also get Williams back to face Kansas City. Williams has been out since suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 7. If Williams is active, he is a safer bet in lineups than Allen.
Khalil Herbert (RB) Chicago Bears – A hip injury will keep Herbert out for at least four games. The Bears placed Herbert on short-term IR Tuesday. This should result in more work for David Montgomery. Trestan Ebner will also mix in as the RB2 behind Montgomery.
Jerry Jeudy (WR) Denver Broncos – Any time a player is carted off (see: Zac Ertz) the prognosis isn’t good. However, Jeudy is day-to-day with an ankle injury. It would probably be best to leave Jeudy out of Week 11 lineups regardless of his status. There isn’t much upside in a Denver offense that is last in scoring. Gambling on a limited player in that attack is a recipe for disaster.
Matthew Stafford (QB) Los Angeles Rams – Another big blow for the ailing Rams. Stafford was a surprising addition to the league’s concussion protocol last Wednesday. The veteran signal-caller was forced to sit last week. However, there is plenty of time for Stafford to be activated ahead of Week 11’s matchup with the Saints.
Randall Cobb (WR) Green Bay Packers – Cobb has been absent since Week 7 with an ankle injury but is nearing a return. The aging wideout would return to slot duties and give QB Aaron Rodgers a much-needed veteran presence.
P.J. Walker (QB) Carolina Panthers – An ankle injury will cause Walker to miss this week’s game. Baker Mayfield will be back under center against the Ravens and will be backed up by Sam Darnold. Walker is a drop candidate.
Romeo Doubs (WR) Green Bay Packers – Doubs won’t play in Week 11 with a high-ankle sprain.
Randy Bullock (PK) Tennessee Titans – Bullock injured his hip last week. He was able to play through the injury. However, Tuesday the Titans signed Josh Lambo to their practice squad. That move casts some doubts on Bullock’s Week 11 availability.
Chase Young (DL) Washington Commanders – IDP enthusiasts rejoice. Young should debut this week. Plus, he gets an intriguing matchup against a horrid Texans squad.
Shaquille Leonard (LB) Indianapolis Colts – Leonard will miss the rest of the 2022 campaign after being placed on season-ending IR with a back injury that required surgery.
