In our Week 11 injury report, the top news at the quarterback position is Philip Rivers has cleared the concussion protocol.
But even though he can play, can you trust him?
Among quarterbacks in 2017, the 35-year old is ranked 17th in Fantasy points. His production has been sporadic, with 15 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Three of those interceptions have been thrown in the last five games.
He also has a tough matchup in Week 11…
The defense for the Buffalo Bills has also allowed the sixth-fewest Fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks.
This isn’t the spot to start the veteran quarterback.
Now that you’re all caught up with the news about Rivers, let’s take a look at the rest of the Fantasy players on your roster that may be dealing with injuries.
Week 11 Injury Report for Quarterbacks
Jameis Winston, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Winston is dealing with a shoulder injury, and his sprained AC joint could cost him a month or more.
And now, the young quarterback is also dealing with an off-the-field issue. The NFL is investigating a claim that the 23-year old quarterback groped an Uber driver in 2016.
Through his Twitter account, Winston admitted he was in the car when the alleged incident occurred. He did say, though, he believes the driver was confused by who was sitting next to her and denies the allegations against him.
We will keep you updated each week on any new developments.
Week 11 Injury Report for Running Backs
Ty Montgomery, Green Bay Packers
Montgomery missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday because of a lingering rib issue, and he’s been ruled out for Week 11.
His backup, Aaron Jones, has also been ruled out with an MCL injury. He’s expected to be out for a month or more.
Rookie Jamaal Williams is the next man up, and he turned 20 carries into 67 rushing yards in Week 10 against the Chicago Bears. I would add him to my team if he’s still on waivers, but just remember that he has a tough matchup in Week 11 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Devonta Freeman, Atlanta Falcons
Freeman is in the concussion protocol, and he did not practice Friday.
If he’s sidelined, Tevin Coleman and Terron Ward will have to lead the Atlanta Falcons to a victory over the Seattle Seahawks.
So far in 2017, the Seahawks have allowed the third-fewest Fantasy points to running backs.
Week 11 Injury Report for Wide Receivers
Alshon Jeffery, Philadelphia Eagles
Even though he had a bye in Week 10 to rest up, Jeffery is still dealing with a lingering ankle injury.
He’s expected to play, but he’s still listed as questionable.
Jeffery caught six passes and two touchdowns in Week 9 with the ankle injury, so he still needs to be in your lineup even if he’s less than 100%.
Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos
Thomas has been dealing with a hamstring issue this year, but he reportedly was limited in practice Wednesday because of a new issue with his knee.
There haven’t been many updates on his condition, so just make sure to double check his status tomorrow before you put him in your lineup.
Week 11 Injury Report for Tight Ends
Greg Olsen, Carolina Panthers
The Panthers have a bye this week, but Olsen is expected to return in Week 12 against the New York Jets.
He hasn’t seen the field since Week 2, after going down with a foot injury.
After shipping Kelvin Benjamin off to the Bills and Curtis Samuel being out for the year, Carolina desperately needs Olsen to return.
Jordan Reed, Washington Redskins
Reed is ruled out once again, which means its once again time to put Vernon Davis in your lineups in PPR leagues.
Davis caught six passes for 72 yards in Week 9, and he caught seven passes for 76 yards in Week 10.
