Fantasy Football News: Injury Update 11/15/14
Andrew's Week 11 Fantasy Injury Analysis
November 15, 2014
It’s Saturday, and that means it’s time for us to get our fantasy football lineups together for Week 11. As we do every week, let’s check out some of the notable injury situations around the NFL and see what effect these ailing players will have on our lineups heading into tomorrow’s games. Here’s a closer look.
Marshawn Lynch participated fully in the Seahawks’ practice session yesterday, so that’s the good news. The bad news is that he’s still considered questionable for tomorrow’s game against the Chiefs.
Lynch has a pretty good track record as far as staying healthy--he hasn’t missed a game since 2011--but owners will want to watch him up until kickoff to make sure.

The Lions’ Reggie Bush is in the questionable boat as well, thanks to an ankle injury. The team is hoping that his issue improves over the next day, but as of right now it’s not looking like he’ll take the field against Arizona.
Bush has missed practice all week, so don’t count on having him in your lineup tomorrow.
In more positive RB news, the Giants’ Rashad Jennings has been officially tagged as probable for tomorrow’s matchup against the 49ers. He’s been out of action for the last month due to a sprained knee.
Jennings says he’ll be full-go with no restrictions this week, but it’s still a tough call on how much work the Giants will give him. The matchup is pretty bad, but we’d say he’s still worth a start if you have him.
The Chiefs’ Donnie Avery will be out once again tomorrow, thanks to his groin injury. He’s been gone for the last six games, so this really comes as no surprise.
Still, deep-leaguers will want to keep in mind that he was able to practice all week (limited), so we could see a return very soon.
The Texans’ Arian Foster has been labeled as questionable for tomorrow’s game against Cleveland. That said, the overall indication is that he most likely won’t be playing thanks to his groin injury.
Foster sounds more doubtful than anything else. Keep him out of your lineup.
Bad news for Cleveland TE Jordan Cameron and his owners. He’ll be missing tomorrow’s game against Houston and there’s a good chance that he’s done for the rest of the year.
Cameron is dealing with a concussion, and this one doesn’t sound too promising. Owners in shallow leagues can probably cut the cord, while deeper leaguers will want to make other plans.
The Bengals’ disappointing RB Giovani Bernard will miss another game tomorrow in New Orleans. This is the third straight game he’s been gone for thanks to his hip/clavicle issues.
It’s tough telling when Bernard will be back in action, but we’d imagine he’ll be getting back to the practice field this week. As to what his workload will be when he returns, it’s anyone’s guess.
