Expert Injury Analysis

82 Jordy Nelson (WR)
Coach Jon Gruden said that Nelson could easily miss Week 11 with a knee injury, and that scenario is looking more and more likely. Nelson has yet to practice this week after sustaining a knee bruise last weekend. Nelson’s absence would leave the Raiders extremely thin at wideout and Nelson hasn’t had much fantasy value yet this season. He shouldn’t be considered a viable option for Week 11.

12 Chris Godwin (WR)
Godwin has yet to practice this week due to an ankle injury and appears to be on the doubtful side of questionable for Week 11. When Godwin sustained the injury and severity of the injury are not yet clear, but even a mild, grade 1 sprain would require 2 weeks of recovery time. A moderate sprain could require up to 5 weeks. Either way, he won’t be 100% by this weekend. It’s time to start thinking about back-up.

3 Matt Bryant (K)
Falcons kicker Matt Bryant resumed practicing in full this week after battling a hamstring strain since Week 6. He’s reached his Optimal Recovery Time, but hamstring injuries are extremely tricky for kickers. The Falcons will likely limit his FG attempts this weekend, so we don’t think he’s worth a fantasy start until we see him in game-action.

13 Keenan Allen (WR)
Keenan Allen was a late addition to the injury report this week with hip and finger injuries. He still got in a limited session on Thursday, so it’s likely he still plays this weekend. Allen battled a knee injury for a few weeks earlier in the season, but has largely remained healthy the past two season after his ACL tear.

14 Sammy Watkins (WR)
Watkins sat out last week, and it’s possible he misses an additional week with his foot injury. He was limited at practice on Thursday, but was downgraded to out on Friday. This is a pretty big downgrade, so fantasy owners should pay close attention to his Saturday practice status. Unfortunately, the Chiefs don’t play until Monday, so the safest bet is to find a replacement. If Watkins did suffer a setback, he could be looking at an addition 2-3 weeks on the sidelines.
