Week 10: Game Time Decisions - Injury Updates
We let you know the playing chances of the big name players who are injured. This week's picks include Profiled players include Arian Foster, Darren McFadden, Darren Sproles, Marques Colston, and Roddy White.
Terrelle Pryor suffered a knee injury in the fourth quarter of the week 9 blowout loss to Philadelphia. He was able to practice Wednesday and appears likely to be under center when the Raiders travel to face the Giants in week 10. The Ohio State alum is averaging over 18 fantasy points per game over the past four games. Despite mediocre passing numbers (five touchdowns and nine interceptions), Pryor's dual threat ability (averaging 69 yards per game) should make him a solid QB2 this week. In week 10, he'll face a Giants defense allowing the 13th most fantasy PPG to opposing quarterbacks. The G-men are allowing 253 yards per game through the air.
Thomas suffered a mild ankle sprain in Week 8, but week 9 bye week rest worked wonders as he returned to a Wednesday practice and appears likely to suit up for the week 10 divisional battle in San Diego. The third year tight end from Portland State is on pace for 78 catches, 902 yards and 16 touchdowns this season. He remains a must start option this week despite a tough matchup against a Charger defense allowing just 43 yards per game to opposing tight ends.
