2023 Fantasy Football Injury Impact

Welcome to the 2023 Fantasy Football Week 10 Injury Impact article.

We are officially at the halfway point of the NFL season. The fantasy football playoffs are right around the corner, so now is the time to shore up those rosters. That means making trades with desperate teams, finding defenses that have great playoff matchups, and dominating the waiver wire. To those that have two losses or less, read the previous sentence. As for everyone else, just keep on grinding.

We saw the return of Kyler Murray () and James Conner(). The Arizona Cardinals() look like a whole new team now. The same can be said about the Joshua Dobbs ()-led Minnesota Vikings. He looked solid with the weapons he has now. Plus, Justin Jefferson should be making his return in Week 11. We also saw a thunderous return for David Montgomery().

With Week 9 being so kind, did Week 10 follow suit?

More QB Troubles

Derek Carr, New Orleans Saints (Right Shoulder, Concussion)

*Derek Carr will be on bye in Week 11.*

Before leaving with multiple injuries, Derek Carr (13/18-11 0-0, 1-10-0) struggled to get the offense going. Jameis Winston came in and threw two touchdowns, so something is up with Derek Carr. Anyway, this is just an injury that should be monitored. As stated above, Derek Carr will be on bye in Week 11.

He should be good to go by their next game.

IF NOT (since this is an injury impact article), Winston has SF (Superflex) appeal. As for the pass catchers, fear not. Chris Olave (9/6-94-1) will thrive with Winston.

*See Michael Thomas later in the article for the rest of the New Orleans Saints crew.*

Deshaun Watson, Cleveland Browns (Walking Boot)

Deshaun Watson (20/34-213 1-1, 8-37-0) was spotted in a walking boot, even though he played the whole game (pretty much). It was reported that Watson said that he was "fine", but being in a walking boot is never good.

This is an injury you must monitor moving forward. If he does miss time, P.J. Walker will get the nod. Personally, I don't see a huge dropoff for the pass-catchers. David Njoku is a solid TE and Amari Cooper should be in starting lineups as a WR2 (mid).

Injuries To Monitor

Keenan Allen, WR, Los Angeles Chargers (Shoulder)

There is nothing to report here, just wanted to give a shoutout to the man. Keenan Allen did leave the game temporarily but returned. You should monitor this injury though, he has had shoulder injuries in the past.

I expect him to be good to go for their next game, I mean he did return and score a TD (2nd of the day). Keenan Allen finished the day with 11 catches on 14 targets for 175 yards and two touchdowns (beast).

If he were to miss time, Quentin Johnston (4/4-34-1) is worth a pickup. He may have had a mini-breakout.

Tank Dell, WR, Houston Texans (Back)

The second-half breakout for Tank Dell is real. On Sunday, Dell caught six of his 14 targets (36% Target Share) for 56 yards and one touchdown. He did leave the game with a back injury but he returned and played well. With that being said, I expect him to be good to go for their next game. For the rest of the season, Tank Dell is a solid WR3/flex play.

Just monitoring the situation this coming week is a must.

T.J. Hockenson, TE, Minnesota Vikings (Multiple Injuries)

Wow! T.J. Hockenson got beat up today. He left the game briefly but returned to his normal self. This is a situation you must monitor, but I expect Hockenson to be good to go.

On Sunday, Hockenson caught 11 of his 15 targets for 134 yards and one touchdown. It looks like Joshua Dobbs loves Hockenson (44% Target Share), so he is a top-3 TE moving forward. I would also like to mention that Joshua Dobbs should be able to support a solid WR3 in Jordan Addison as well. He caught four of his seven targets (21% Target Share) for 69 yards.

As for Joshua Dobbs (23/34-268 1-0, 8-44-1), he is a solid SF QB with QB1 upside (dare I say).

Alexander Mattison, RB, Minnesota Vikings (Concussion)

Alexander Mattison (8-27-0, 2/1-6-0) left the game with a concussion. He did not return.

The Vikings' injuries continue to mount, but somehow they continue to prevail. The next man up in the running back room is Ty Chandler (15-45-1, zero targets). In 12+ team leagues, you can pick him up. Starting him is a whole other question, and I would say no to that (for now).

*Do not worry about him in 10-team leagues.*

Michael Thomas, WR, New Orleans Saints (Knee)

Michael Thomas (2/1-9-0) left the game early with a knee injury. He did return.

It's been a rough few days for Michael Thomas, but I don't want to get into all of that. Let's just talk fantasy football here.

The severity of this injury is unknown at this time, but I expect some time to be missed for Thomas. With that being said, expect more targets for Rashid Shaheed ((9/5-24-0). He could be a sneaky flex play moving forward.


As you can see, Week 10 was calm (just like Week 9). Enjoy it while it lasts, because this won't last forever. That's it for the 2023 Fantasy Football Week 10 Injury Impact article. See you all next week.
