2020 Fantasy Football Week 10 Injury Impact

on

Oof! Now, this has been quite an interesting week for fantasy football. The weather, mostly the wind, played a major factor today. There were a few games that had some terrible weather which made this morning full of decisions and shortly ended with many regrets I bet. If you didn’t start Aaron Rodgers or Ben Roethlisberger and Pittsburgh Steelers‘ Pass catchers because of the weather I’m sorry to hear that. They ended up having monster days.

As for the injuries, there were some stars that avoided serious injury today while others couldn’t escape that misfortune. As always I will be going over the major and minor injuries that went down today and will be going over the impact of those injuries also.

So without further ado welcome to the 2020 Fantasy Football Week 10 Injury impact article.

Quarterbacks

This week we saw a for sure major injury and a possible major injury which isn’t good news for us. We also may have avoided an injury to a couple of very relevant fantasy QB’s.

I’ll start with the quarterbacks first that we hope avoided major injuries.

Drew Brees, QB, New Orleans Saints – Ribs/Chest (TBD)

Late in the first half, New Orleans’ football savior Drew Brees took an absolute shot to the chest/rib area. For many fantasy owners, they will not like what they saw after as Drew Brees did not return to the game. In his place, it was Jameis Winston taking over the signal calling duties with a sprinkle of Taysom Hill in there too.

It looks like Drew Brees may have avoided serious injury and that it will only be this game that he misses. You never know though with his age and all that something wrong could’ve happened. It did look like he was struggling to breathe a bit after that hit. If he were to miss time expect nothing to change to the Saints’ offense in terms of fantasy. Winston can produce fantasy points for some reason and keep the receiving options afloat.

Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Carolina Panthers – Knee (TBD)

This another scary injury that went down on Sunday. Teddy Bridgewater left the game with a knee injury and didn’t return. This is not good news because he has a history of knee injuries but we are hoping and praying that it wasn’t anything serious. He is going to get an MRI here soon, they are reporting that he could even be back next week.

If he were to miss time P.J. Walker would be the new QB. I expect that to be a major hit to the fantasy stars on this team.

Matt Stafford, QB, Detroit Lions – Thumb (TBD)

Wow-what a week for QBs and injuries. Matt Stafford ended up hurting his thumb which isn’t always good news. He will be getting x-rays on Monday so let’s hope for good news. I expect him to be fine, but if this is like Drew Brees’ injury from a year ago expect him to miss some time, unfortunately.

If he were to miss time, Chase Daniel will be the guy for the Detroit Lions. Good luck with that guys.

Major Injuries

Nick Boyle, TE, Baltimore Ravens – Knee (Out for season)

For the most part, I don’t expect anyone to be starting Nick Boyle in any of their leagues, but I still thought I should mention this here. Unfortunately, Nick Boyle suffered a major knee injury and was carted off. He will be gone for the season. This just means Mark Andrews is going to have to be on the field more than he has been.

John Brown, WR, Buffalo Bills – Leg? Knee? (TBD)

We should know more here in the coming days on how serious this injury is. It didn’t look great as he landed super awkwardly on his knee. That is why I’m thinking it is a knee injury, but it could also be something else with his leg. John Brown has been battling injuries all year and he couldn’t get through this game without getting another one. The good news for him is that the Bills’ bye week is coming up, so hopefully he won’t be missing any weeks for you fantasy owners.

If he does miss some time or the whole year (which I hope isn’t the case) expect Stefon Diggs to absolutely get peppered with targets in his absence.

Minor Injuries

Davante Adams, WR, Green Bay Packers – Ankle (Fine)

There was an early injury scare for fantasy juggernaut Davante Adams as he tweaked his ankle on Sunday. He overcame this injury pretty quickly as he caught a beautiful jump ball for a touchdown not too long after this injury. I expect him to be fine guys so don’t worry.

Tyler Ervin, RB, Green Bay Packers – Ribs (Game)

I’m sure nobody really uses him in fantasy unless you are in some super deep leagues (I am), so this injury shouldn’t be a problem to most people. He left the game Sunday with a rib injury.

Chris Thompson, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars – Back (Game)

Again, nobody really uses him in fantasy anymore because James Robinson has made him irrelevant. He is worth a mention those in super deep leagues again. I don’t like messing with back injuries, he could miss a week or some maybe.

Tre’Quan Smith, WR, New Orleans Saints – Concussion (1 week maybe)

We all hate concussions but unfortunately for now we can’t get rid of them.

I’m sure some of you used in fantasy for a couple of weeks. Now with Michael Thomas back, he has become pretty irrelevant. Even before then he wasn’t doing much as he only scored 10+ fantasy points twice in Weeks 2 and 4.
