NFL Injury Report, Week 10: Fantasy Football Implications

We break down the final NFL injury report for week 10 of the 2011 NFL season. For more on fantasy football, check out Fake Teams.

Final injury reports for Sunday week ten matchups were released Friday afternoon and we don't have many surprises. Ahmad Bradshaw and Andre Johnson were both declared out for Sunday's game, which removes the need for game-time decisions. Hakeem Nicks, however, is a game-time decision with his hamstring injury.

There is a chance players will suffer setbacks between now and Sunday, which could lead to additional players being declared out. We will re-post the injury report Sunday morning to adjust for any injury report adjustments. For the most part though, any players declared officially out will be guys who were already highly questionable to begin with. Among the current "questionable" players, Joseph Addai and Hakeem Nicks are the ones to pay close attention to through the weekend.

For those wondering, the designations break down as follows:

Out: 0% change of playing
Doubtful: 25% chance of playing
Questionable: 50% chance of playing
Probable: 75% chance of playing

For fantasy purposes, you can almost always assume a probable player can be slotted into your lineup. I would be somewhat shocked if any of those Probable players ended up inactive this Sunday barring any news tonight or tomorrow. Questionable players on the other hand put you in a tough position. At least half if not more of these guys will play, but you will likely find yourself waiting on a "game-time decision" for most of them. It is not a problem for 1:00pm ET starts, but the 4:05 and 4:15pm ET starts, it can become a pain in the butt setting your lineup. For those I simply suggest trying to slot them into your flex position (if you have one) so you have some flexibility between running backs and wide receivers (and maybe even tight ends).

This Sunday we'll have final updates for all of these players so check back then. And of course, feel free to tweet us @sbnationfantasy with any sit/start questions you might have.
