Some Week 11 news you can use
Courtesy of our friends at FantasyPros…
⏲️ Murray a game-time decision. Kyler Murray, despite practicing on Friday, will be a game-time decision against the 49ers. Unfortunately for owners, the Cardinals play on Monday night this week…
🤕 Herbert sidelined. Khalil Herbert has been placed on IR following a hip injury he suffered in Week 10. David Montgomery should now return to near-workhorse status as the clear-cut RB1 for the Bears.
🏥 Also on the shelf: Cooper Kupp will miss at least four weeks after ankle surgery, and Dallas Goedert is also on the IR and can’t return until at least Week 15.
🎉 Welcome back Stafford: Matthew Stafford has cleared the concussion protocols and will start, though he’ll be without Kupp for the foreseeable future. He is also returning to a less-than-ideal matchup against a regularly feisty Saints defense.
😕 Andrews questionable: The Ravens won’t have a decision on Mark Andrews’ status until Sunday morning. The fact that he practiced in full Friday is a good sign, but the team will likely approach this situation with caution in an effort to minimize the chance of re-injury.
❓More question marks: Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Davante Adams, Lamar Jackson, and Ezekiel Elliott are all listed as questionable this weekend.
📈 Smith cleared; great matchup. Devonta Smith (knee) practiced in full on Friday and has been removed from the injury report. With Godert sidelined and A.J. Brown expected to be covered by Stephon Gilmore, Smith is due for significant production.
🟢 Also good to go: A.J. Brown, Cole Kmet, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Brandin Cooks are all expected to play without much, if any, restriction.
🛑 Not playing: Jerry Jeudy, Mark Ingram, Ja’Marr Chase, J.D. McKissic, and JuJu Smith-Schuster.
