Kyler Murray injury update

Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said he’s going to be very close to Murray (ankle) playing Seattle so obviously it sounds like a game-time decision again. We will have to stay ahead of the injury reports, but it seems unlikely that he will practice again.

If he plays, he must start. Seattle is actually a top-10 unit against fantasy quarterbacks, but Murray’s surprise and arsenal of weapons make him match-proof. He’s our QB5 for Week 11, so unless you have Tom Brady, Josh Allen, Dak Prescott, or Jalen Hurts, you can play Murray with confidence.

Rob Gronkowski injury update

According to Bruce Arians, Gronkowski (back) probably won’t be back to full health for a week or two. That’s not to say he definitely won’t play, but you have to think that Tampa Bay, which has Super Bowl aspirations, will be wary of its veteran TE.

The Giants are an intermediate unit against the fantasy TEs, but we’ve seen Gronk play long enough to know that you have to start him under normal circumstances. If he plays there is a decent chance that he is on a quick count, but we tend to think that he will just be idle if the team is going to limit him.

While we classify Gronk as the TE5 in the standard and PPR leagues, there is a good chance that he will be eliminated later on. OJ Howard and Cameron Brate are not trustworthy in the lineups based on what we’ve seen so far.

DeAndre Hopkins injury update

Hopkins (hamstring) is another guy we don’t know much about earlier in the week, but practice reports should tell the story. We can’t speculate much beyond that, but we’ve seen hamstring issues that keep the WRs out for more than two games.

Seattle is one of the top 10 defenses against fantasy WRs, but the elite WRs in this league have been successful against them. For that reason, Hopkins ranks as WR5 in the standard leagues and WR4 in the PPR leagues. If he’s out, it’s hard to trust AJ Green, Rondale Moore or Christian Kirk, even if he plays Kyler Murray. If Murray doesn’t play, go ahead and bench all Arizona pass receivers with the exception of Hopkins.

Antonio Brown injury update

Brown (ankle) hasn’t practiced in several weeks, and once again he will probably wear a “Q” tag in Week 11. We’ve said it many times, but the WR trio of stud bucs are always must-starts. . Brown’s risk of injury is outweighed by his exceptional advantage, regardless of the matchup. The Giants are just an average team against fantasy WRs, so there’s nothing to worry about on that front.

We classify Brown as the WR20 in the standard leagues and the WR22 in the PPR leagues. If he’s out, Tyler Johnson will start in his place, but he won’t be worth a spot in the fantasy lineups.

Logan Thomas injury update

Before week 10, Rob Rivera said Thomas (hamstring) just “isn’t ready to be put on a soccer field”Despite initial thoughts, he would be ready to go. That said, we’ll just have to monitor your status and practice reports throughout the week.

If he plays, it’s hard to love his perspective after injury. Carolina is one of the best defenders in football and has allowed double-digit fantasy points to a tight end just once this season (Dalton Schultz). We still think Thomas can be played on some tight ends, but we are limiting his expectations. It ranks as the TE18 in the standard and PPR leagues. However, we won’t be surprised if it surpasses those rankings.
