We’ll give you the most recent information on these standout players and explain how their injuries may affect the Week 10 fantasy landscape.
Fantasy Injury Report: Romeo Doubs, Josh Allen and Aaron Jones
- Romeo Doubs
- Josh Allen
- Aaron Jones
1. Romeo Doubs
UPDATE: The rookie receiver suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday’s game, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Rapoport adds that high-ankle sprains typically heal in 4-6 weeks, but Doubs will be evaluated further to determine the timeframe.
Following Sunday’s loss to the Lions, Doubs (ankle) was seen with a walking boot on his right foot and crutches, according to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky. On the Packers’ first offensive drive of the game, the rookie was injured.
Christian Watson suffered a concussion for the second week in a row, causing the Packers to be hit by the injury bug twice.
If Doubs is out next week, Allen Lazard, Sammy Watkins, and Samori Toure will be the Packers’ wide receiver options.
Lazard is already heavily owned, but Toure is worth considering as a Week 10 deep sleeper. He’s recently made a couple of big catches, and the Packers may need to throw a lot to keep up with Dallas.
2. Josh Allen
UPDATE: Allen will be limited this week due to an elbow injury, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Rapoport goes on to say that Allen is still being tested and that the situation is being closely monitored.
Allen told reporters on Sunday that he was feeling “slight pain” in his right elbow after being sacked to end the game against the Jets, according to ProFootballTalk’s Josh Alper.
The MVP candidate, however, added that he will “work through it” as the Bills prepare to face the Vikings in Week 10.
We’re assuming Allen will be fine for the time being, but if he’s out for Week 10, fantasy owners in deep leagues should consider Andy Dalton (vs. Steelers), Jimmy Garoppolo (vs. Chargers), and Marcus Mariota (vs. Panthers), all of whom are widely available on waiver wires.
Baker Mayfield (vs. Falcons), Jacoby Brissett (vs. Dolphins), and even Sam Ehlinger (vs. Raiders) should be considered in deep leagues.
With Case Keenum at the helm, Stefon Diggs and Gabriel Davis will still be must-starts, but their value has decreased.
3. Aaron Jones
According to beat writer Matt Schneidman, Jones (ankle) was seen limping and grimacing in the postgame after leaving the game in the third quarter on Sunday.
According to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, he told reporters that his X-rays were negative, but that his “X-rays were fine, but they decided to hold me out.”
Jones’ status for Week 10 against the Cowboys should be considered “questionable,” but he has a good chance of playing.
Owners should plan on using AJ Dillon as their RB2 if Jones is unable to practice this week.
Although he lacks Jones’ pass-catching ability, the former Boston College standout is a strong runner who can grind out yards even in tough matchups.
