Welcome to the Two-Minute Warning for Week 10. Below I will go through most of the relevant injuries for fantasy football and their fantasy implications.

Pierre Garcon won't play this Monday night against the Giants. Kendrick Bourne and Marquise Goodwin will play outside, while Dante Pettis will work the slot. George Kittle should see all the work he can handle.

Sam Darnold is doubtful to play, so Josh McCown will take over this week against the Bills. McCown was a good fantasy quarterback last season, but this is still a tough matchup against the Bills. The Jets likely won't need to score much and could rely on Isaiah Crowell and Elijah McGuire, especially with Robby Anderson out.

Leonard Fournette practiced all week and is not on the injury report. He should be good to go and to start this week in a good matchup, but he's still more in the RB2 range until we see him put a full game together.

Dez Bryant tore his Achilles in practice and won't get a chance to play this season. It would have been fun to see him playing for the Saints, but it just wasn't meant to be.

Jamison Crowder is out against Tampa Bay this week. Maurice Harris will take his place in the slot and have a strong matchup. He's worth a spot start in PPR leagues.

Rob Gronkowski is likely to sit this week after reports that he would, but he made the trip to Tennessee and is officially questionable. With their bye coming up next week, the Patriots will probably still sit him so he can get two weeks to heal truly. Julian Edelman, James White and Josh Gordon should see an uptick in work.

Chris Carson didn't practice this week, but is listed as questionable and appears to be a game-time decision. It would be prudent to sit him with his string of trouble staying healthy, but we'll have to wait on the Schefter/Mortensen reports. If he can't go, Mike Davis would get the lead role with Rashaad Penny seeing some work. Davis caught seven passes last week with Carson out in the second half, so he still could be useful against the high-scoring Rams. Ryan Grant is on track to return this week. He should move back ahead of Dontrelle Inman, and in a tough matchup with the Jaguars, neither have much safety in their target numbers.

C.J. Uzomah has been removed from the injury report and will play. He will also be needed with A.J. Green out, making him a worthwhile tight end streamer against the Saints.

Randall Cobb had a setback this week during practice and was limited the last two days. It looks like he will be a game-time decision. At less than 100 percent, the big three of Davante Adams, Jimmy Graham, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling should see enough work to be safe plays.

Sony Michel should be able to go this week. There is no guarantee he'll step right back into his workhorse role, but he would at the least hurt James White's touchdown possibilities around the goal line.

Sammy Watkins returned to practice on Friday, giving himself a chance to play against the Cardinals. He's questionable, so keep an eye on his status. If he can't go, Chris Conley has some appeal as a cheap DFS play.

Kerryon Johnson is questionable with an ankle injury, but got limited practices in this week. His matchup is already tough against the Bears, and if he's not 100 percent, things get tougher.

Allen Robinson practiced all week and appears set to return. The matchup with the Lions isn't imposing, especially with Darius Slay out, so get him into your lineups.

Josh Allen won't play this week, giving Matt Barkley the start and a good chance for the New York Jets D/ST to get a bunch of fantasy points.

Chad Williams is out for the Cardinals. He will likely be replaced by a group of receivers, but Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk will probably see a few more targets in a game where they'll be trailing.

Robby Anderson is doubtful. Quincy Enunwa, Chris Herndon and Jermaine Kearse will likely lead the way in what could be a low volume passing attack.

Darren Sproles had a setback and won't play this week. Wendall Smallwood appears to be the lead back of a three-back committee and has the most fantasy upside.
