This week, there are many notable injuries for fantasy football that need to be known for managers. Christian McCaffrey will be out another week and so will Joe Mixon. Drew Brees has hit IR for a minimum of three weeks, and the Saints have announced the start of Taysom Hill this weekend. Want to find out more about NFL injuries for week 11? Check out the injuries page under the NFL section of the website. Don’t forget to go over to the fantasy football site to check out projections, rankings, statistics, and more to know for week 11. Below, I will be going over the most notable injuries for fantasy football players.
New Orleans Saints vs. Atlanta Falcons
Drew Brees (IR): Drew Brees will be on injured reserve for at least three weeks due to cracked ribs and a punctured lung he suffered last weekend. Taysom Hill has been named the starter, and he is extremely valuable to pick up off of waivers in ESPN leagues because he is listed as a tight end. You can essentially start two quarterbacks with him in your tight end spot this weekend. I highly recommend picking him up if you can if you participate in ESPN fantasy leagues.
Cleveland Browns vs. Philadelphia Eagles
All good for fantasy football!
Washington Football Team vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Joe Mixon (O): Joe Mixon will be out for the fourth straight game this season with a foot injury. Mixon was reportedly close to returning this weekend but will take another week to be at full strength. Giovani Bernard has been hauling in most of the carries over Samaje Perine and has had three weeks over 10 points in the last four weeks. He has projected 11.25 points this week.
Carolina Panthers vs. Detroit Lions
Christian McCaffrey (O): Christian McCaffrey has been ruled out with a shoulder injury this week. The Panthers expect him to have a shot to play next week, but Mike Davis will fill in for this weekend. He has projected 17.35 points against the Lions’ rough rushing defense.
Teddy Bridgewater (Q): Teddy Bridgewater is a game-time decision for Sunday with a knee injury. This injury may affect Carolina’s wide receivers like D.J Moore, Robby Anderson, and Curtis Samuel if he cannot play. P.J Walker or Will Grier will take the starting role if Teddy cannot go.
D’Andre Swift (O): D’Andre Swift has been ruled out with a concussion this week against the Panthers. Adrian Peterson is a good fantasy option for this week as he will get most of the touches.
Kenny Golladay (O): Kenny Golladay is out with a hip injury this week. Marvin Jones Jr. is projected as the lead receiver to get 12.3 fantasy points this week and should receive more targets without him.
Danny Amendola (O): Danny Amendola is out for this week with a hip injury this week.
Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
Gardner Minshew (Q): Gardner Minshew is questionable and most likely a game-time decision for this weekend. Jake Luton, while winless, has produced over 30 total fantasy points in the last two weeks. This is enough to keep his receivers relevant but not enough for him to be a fantasy starter.
Laviska Shenault Jr. (O): Laviska Shenault is out this weekend with a hamstring injury. D.J Chark will continue to be the main target for Jake Luton as he is projected 11.25 points.
Baltimore Ravens vs. Tennessee Titans
Adam Humphries (O): Adam Humphries has a concussion and will not play against the Ravens this weekend. Humphries is hardly a fantasy starter, but more power and targets should go to A.J Brown and Corey Davis.
Houston Texans vs. New England Patriots
N’Keal Harry (Q): N’Keal Harry was limited on Friday with a shoulder injury and will go into the weekend questionable. Jakobi Meyers has projected 10.85 points this weekend and could see more without Harry.
Damien Harris (Q): Damien Harris is going into the weekend questionable with an ankle injury. If he is out on Sunday, Sony Michel or Rex Burkhead should take the majority of the carries. Harris was one of my starting running back recommendations this weekend so his owners should check his status. Harris has projected 10.9 points this weekend if he is healthy enough to play.
Denver Broncos vs. Miami Dolphins
Noah Fant (Q): Noah Fant is questionable with a rib injury this weekend. If Fant cannot go, Albert Okwuegbunam could see more targets at the tight end. He has been averaging 7.3 fantasy points this season.
Drew Lock (Q): Drew Lock has been dealing with a rib injury that could also sideline him for Brett Rypien. This could hurt the value of Jerry Jeudy, Tim Patrick, or KJ Hamler for this weekend.
Los Angeles Chargers vs. New York Jets
Sam Darnold (D): Sam Darnold is not expected to play this week. This could devalue Jamison Crowder and Breshad Perriman with Joe Flacco starting on Sunday. Crowder has projected 13.8 while Perriman has projected 9.4 fantasy points this week.
Indianapolis Colts vs. Green Bay Packers
Allen Lazard (Q): Allen Lazard is still recovering from the abdomen surgery he had weeks ago. He practiced in some capacity this week which is a good sign. He averaged 17.5 fantasy points in the first three weeks of the season.
Minnesota Vikings vs. Dallas Cowboys
Irv Smith Jr. (Q): Irv Smith is questionable with a groin injury. The last time Irv Smith played he had two touchdowns in a game. Kyle Rudolph received a lot of targets without Smith present last week, and that could be the case again this week if Smith can’t go.
Las Vegas Raiders vs. Kansas City Chiefs
Sammy Watkins (Q): Sammy Watkins has not played since week five, but he was expected to play this week against the Raiders.
Mecole Hardman (IR): Mecole Hardman has landed on the COVID list this week, in which he will not play this weekend. This leaves the door open to targets for Travis Kelve, Tyreek Hill, and Sammy Watkins if he can play this weekend.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Los Angeles Rams
