Donnie Avery injury update: Fantasy status safe despite concussion

Andy Lyons

Donnie Avery is listed as probable, and is expected to play Sunday when the Colts take on the Bills. We break down the fantasy implications.

Donnie Avery is expected to play in Week 12 when the Indianapolis Colts take on the Buffalo Bills. Avery was listed as probable on Friday, and was able to practice fully throughout the week after suffering a concussion last week against the New England Patriots.

Avery is not expected to be limited at all, despite being knocked out during the first half of last week's game. He has 41 receptions for 553 yards and a touchdown on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Avery is much better suited for PPR leagues as a fantasy option, with at least four receptions in five of his last six outings. His ceiling is limited, however. He has just two games with over 100 yards receiving on the season, and one touchdown caught in the season opener.

Avery does have a good matchup against an iffy Bills secondary, however. If you are going to deploy him this week, it should be as a WR3 or Flex option.
