The list of borderline injuries continues to increase and fantasy owners could be in a bind — with key teams on bye weeks — heading into Week 10 action.
Here’s the latest on some injuries to starters that could have them sidelined and who to turn to as a potential replacement.
Dez Bryant, WR, Cowboys
Bryant’s knee and ankle have made him limited all week, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett comfirmed. If he is unable to suit up against the Falcons, Cole Beasley will be a valuable potential starter.
Marqise Lee, WR, Jaguars
Lee is expected to play but has also nursed an injury all week and could wind up being sidelined. Either way, Allen Hurns should be started against the Chargers.
Zay Jones, WR, Bills
Jones is not the centerpiece of the passing game that Bryant is in Dallas, but Buffalo will need someone to pass it to if Jones can’t play. He missed practice Thursday — making Jordan Matthews more valuable this week.
Matt Forte, RB, Jets
Forte’s knee kept him from practice Thursday, and his absence will make Elijah McGuire and Bilal Powell possible starters at runnig back.
Paul Richardson, WR, Seahawks
Richardson will be a gametime decision Thursday night against the Cardinals. If he can’t go, his fellow co-WR2 Tyler Lockett could be a great start.
Damien Williams, RB, Dolphins
Williams missed Thursday with an illness and could be unable to play Sunday. If that happens Kenyan Drake becomes even more of a must start at running back.
