The Counselor is IN:
Here are the Week 10 fantasy injuries and my commentary.
TE Todd Heap (Ankle) - Questionable- He missed a portion of practice on Thursday but was able to participate in full practice on Friday. It appears extremely likely that he will play. Start him unless you confirm he will not play.
WR David Givens (Hand)- Questionable- He has two torn ligaments in his thumb. He practiced all week. He is a game time decision. If he plays, I would expect him to struggle against a tough Ravens Defense. The Titans passing attack is not very good at this point.
RB Willis McGahee (Ribs) -Out- He might miss up to four weeks. He has two cracked ribs and a broken one.
WR Josh Reed (Kidney) - Out- He is out for the week but he should not be started even when he is at full health.
RB Joseph Addai (Wrist) - Questionable - He practiced all week. He has been the man in Indy the last two weeks. He will be a good start for you.
WR Brandon Stokley (Knee) - Questionable - He is not expected to play. He has only played in 2 games all year. Do not expect this to be the third.
WR Bernard Berrian (Ribs) - Questionable - He was upgraded to questionable on Friday. He has not been a great play in the last couple of games because of Grossman's issues with the passing game. Keep him on the bench this week.
WR Amani Toomer (Knee) - Out - He was placed on the Injured Reserved for the year. He is done.
WR Plaxico Burress (Back) - Questionable- Burress practiced on Thursday and Friday. He made the comment that Chicago's Defense is nothing big. He may be talking too much but he is still a fantasy must start player.
WR Sinorice Moss (Quadricep)- Questionable- The report out of New York is that he will not play again this weekend.
WR Joe Jurevicius (Back) - Questionable- It appears that he will play this weekend. Last year, he was a great mid season pick up. This year, he is not worth your time.
TE Kellen Winslow (Knee) - Questionable - Kellen appears ready to go again this weekend. He will need surgery after the season. Currently, it does not appear to be an issue with his performance.
WR Dennis Northcutt (Ribs) - Probable- He was upgraded to probable. He is not a very good fantasy start.
TE Alge Crumpler (Ankle) - Questionable- He practiced fully on Friday. He should be fine to play this weekend. You might want to verify on Sunday morning but he should be good to start.
WR Ashley Lelie (Groin) - Questionable- He also practiced fully on Friday. It appears that Lelie will play this weekend. He is a marginal starter at best.
RB Jerious Norwood (Knee)- Questionable- He missed practice all week. I would not count on him. He is not a good start when health but he is a fine keeper in keeper leagues.
WR Terry Glenn (Quadricep) - Probable- He may be listed as probable but the reports out of Dallas is that Glenn did not even catch the flight with the team. Do not start him this week.
WR Larry Fitzgerald (Hamstring)- Probable- He practiced all week. You can not afford to leave him on the bench.
RB Tatum Bell (Toe) - Probable- He practiced on Friday and was upgraded to probable. He is likely to split time with Mike Bell and Cobbs. I would not start him until you see that he is still the man in Denver and can make cuts on the turf Toe.
WR Rod Smith (Shoulder) - Probable- He practiced on Thursday and Friday. He will play on Sunday. He is a decent number 3 starter against the RAIDERS.
QB Aaron Brooks (Shoulder) - Questionable- He practiced all week. The QB starter has not been announced. He is not worth starting even if he is the starter.
TE Randal Williams (Back) - Questionable- He practiced on Thursday and Friday. He started last week. He is nothing more than a number 3 TE.
RB Justin Fargas (Shoulder)- Probable- He is likely to play this weekend. He only had one carry last week. He is not worth owning.
RB LaMont Jordan (Back) - Probable- He practiced Thursday and Friday. Right now, the starting Running back for the Raiders is not worth starting.
RB Vernand Morency (Back) - Doubtful- He has been ruled out for the week. He appears to be loosing he grip on the backup role. Stay tuned when he does return.
WR Greg Jennings (Ankle) - Questionable- He is not expected to play this weekend. He has had a really good rookie year. He usually is worthy of a number 3 starting WR.
TE Bubba Franks (Wrist)- Probable- Bubba will play but he is not getting many looks. He is being used primarily for blocking.
RB Ahman Green (Knee)- Probable- He practiced fully on Thursday and Friday. He is a marginal fantasy starter.
WR Marcus Robinson (Back) - Out- He is out and it does not appear like he will be back very soon.
RB Chester Taylor (Calf) - Probable- Chester will be playing this weekend. He is a good number 2 running back. He should have a good weekend against the Packers' Defense.
QB Byron Leftwich (Ankle) - Questionable- It is unlikely for him to play this weekend. When he is back, he will be facing a QB controversy.
RB Fred Taylor (Groin) - Probable- He is facing the Texans this weekend. He will play and should have a good game. With Drew playing, will Taylor have his goal line carries sniped away?
QB Trent Green (Head) - Questionable- He has not been medically cleared to play. If he is able to make it back this weekend, will the Chiefs give him the ball or leave it in Huard's hot hands?
QB Daunte Culpepper (Knee) - Doubtful- He will not play. Do yourself a favor and do not think about him for the rest of the year.
TE Ernie Conwell (Knee) - Out- He is inactive again this weekend. It depends on how fast he can heal from knee surgery if he will have any value during the rest of the year.
WR Joe Horn (Groin) -Doubtful- He missed part of the practice on Friday. He was then downgraded to Doubtful. He is not a safe play this weekend even if he starts.
RB Reggie Bush (Ankle) - Probable- He practiced all week. He is facing a might Steeler Run Defense. I would leave Reggie on the Bench.
WR Willie Reid (Foot) - Out - He continues to be out and not practicing. His fantasy potential is small and shrinking by the day.
RB Najeh Davenport (Knee) - Probable- He will play. His role appears to be very limited.
WR Laveranues Coles (Calf) - Questionable- He should play this weekend. He is a strong play against New England.
WR Tim Dwight (Thigh) - Questionable- He did not practice all week. It does not appear that he will play. He is not a good play any week.
RB Kevan Barlow (Calf) - Probable- He has been splitting carries in practice with Washington. He will play but is value continues to diminish.
QB Chad Pennington (Calf) - Probable- Chad will play but he has not had a great year. He is valuable as a backup in your league but not as a starter.
TE Daniel Graham (Ankle) - Questionable- He is out for the week. He is not a great start when he is healthy.
RB Laurence Maroney (Ankle) - Questionable- It appears that Maroney will play. He should have a good game against the swiss cheese Jets run defense.
QB Tom Brady (Shoulder) - Probable- Tom will play. He had a horrible week last week. Do not expect it to happen again this week against the Jets.
WR Vincent Jackson (Ankle) - Probable- He practiced all week but has had a disappointing rookie year. He is a great keeper but not a starter this year.
WR Kelley Washington (Hamstring) - Out- He will not play this weekend. He has had a disappointing year of injuries.
RB Rudi Johnson (Thigh) - Probable- He appears to be safe to play this weekend. San Diego is a tough defense. Rudi is a must play.
TE Vernon Davis (Fibula) - Doubtful - He missed practice all week. He will be watching from street clothes this weekend.
RB Brian Calhoun (Knee) - Out - His ACL injuring has landed him on the Injured Reserve. He is done for the year.
RB Shaun Alexander (Foot) - Doubtful- He looks like he will be back next week. He will be a nice addition to your team for the playoffs, if you can make it to the playoffs without him.
QB Matt Hasselbeck (Knee) - Doubtful- He might be back for next week also. If they get both him and Alexander, the Seahawks could start making a lot of noise.
WR Nate Burleson (Foot)- Questionable- He is a game time decision. He is not a great start unless you get yardage points for punts.
WR Bobby Engram (Illness)- Questionable- He practiced on Friday. Even if he plays, he is not expected to play more than a few snaps.
TE Chris Cooley (Shoulder) - Probable- He practiced all week. He has 3 touchdowns in the last 3 weeks. He is a great start.
WR Brandon Lloyd (Groin) - Probable- He appears to be starting for the Redskins on the other side of Moss. Lloyd is not a good start this week.
WR Santana Moss (Hamstring) - Probable- It is possible that he might not play this weekend. I would put him in the starting lineup but then check on Sunday morning to verify that he is playing this weekend.
RB Brian Westbrook (Ankle) - Probable- He practiced all week. He will play and you should start him.
