Fantasy Football Week 11 Injury Report: David Montgomery, Emmanuel Sanders headline Sunday's biggest questions

We head into the main portion of Week 11 with another robust injury report on tap, one that still has a fair share of big names. There is a bit less uncertainty this week on some star players, however, with several having been ruled out or confirmed via sources to not be playing. Meanwhile, we'll have notable returns to action at both the quarterback and running back position. With plenty of news brewing, let's jump right into the latest as of early Sunday morning:

Week 11 Injuries
Week 11 Preview
Injury Report Update
Quarterback injuries
DET Detroit • #9
Age: 31 • Experience: 11 year
Injury
Back
Stafford will not play in Sunday's Week 11 battle versus the Cowboys after missing practice all week. Stafford remains without a firm timetable for return, and Jeff DrIskel will fill in for him for the second consecutive game. Driskel wasn't a complete washout for Detroit's pass catchers in a Week 10 contest versus the Bears, throwing for 269 yard and a touchdown to Kenny Golladay. However, Sunday, he'll be facing a Dallas defense allowing the fifth-fewest Fantasy points per game (14.0) to quarterbacks in standard scoring formats.
IND Indianapolis • #7
Age: 27 • Experience: 4 yrs.
Injury
Knee
Brissett does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's AFC South battle versus the Jaguars. While he'll still be minus T.Y. Hilton (calf), Brissett should still represent an upgrade over backup Brian Hoyer, who threw three interceptions in a Week 10 loss to the Dolphins.
JAC Jacksonville • #7
Age: 30 • Experience: 8 yrs.
Injury
Collarbone
Foles has healed from the broken collarbone he suffered in Week 1 and will start Sunday against the Colts. His return sends rookie Gardner Minshew back to the No. 2 role and represents a potential upgrade for Jacksonville's pass catchers. However, Foles may have to shake off the rust himself, and has limited experience in the offense due to the timing of his injury.
Running back injuries
NYJ N.Y. Jets • #26
Age: 27 • Experience: 6 yrs.
Injury
Knee
Bell is questionable for Sunday's interconference matchup against the Redskins after finishing the week with a pair of limited practices. Bell is also battling rib soreness and an illness, but as per early Sunday morning reports, he's expected to overcome all three maladies and suit up versus Washington. The duo of Bilal Powell and Ty Montgomery stand at the ready to fill in for Bell should the star running back's outlook worsen.
SF San Francisco • #22
Age: 24 • Experience: 3 yrs.
Injury
Ankle
Breida is doubtful for Sunday's Week 11 matchup against the Cardinals after missing practice all week. Tevin Coleman would be in line for a clear-cut lead back role against Arizona should Breida be unable to take the field, while Raheem Mostert (knee) and Jeff Wilson would be available as complementary options.
CHI Chicago • #32
Age: 22 • Experience: Rookie
Injury
Ankle
Montgomery is questionable for Sunday night's matchup against the Rams after sandwiching a pair of limited practices around a missed Thursday session. As per coach Matt Nagy, Montgomery will be a game-time decision for the contest. With the game not kicking off until 8:20pm ET, Fantasy managers may want to consider other alternatives to mitigate the risk of Montgomery sitting. Meanwhile, Chicago would presumably have to go with a backfield of Tarik Cohen and undrafted rookie Ryan Nall should Montgomery miss.
PHI Philadelphia • #24
Age: 25 • Experience: 4 yrs.
Injury
Shoulder
Howard is questionable for Sunday's interconference showdown against the Patriots after three limited practices this week, but as per early Sunday morning reports, he will not play. Instead, Jay Ajayi, who was signed earlier in the week, will make his 2019 debut against New England. With Darren Sproles also now on injured reserve with a hip issue, Miles Sanders and Ajayi could both see an especially robust workload against the stingy Pats defense, with Boston Scott also expected to contribute.
KC Kansas City • #26
Age: 27 • Experience: 6 yrs.
Injury
Personal
Williams is questionable for Monday night's game against the Chargers, but he did travel with the team to Mexico City and is expected to play for the time being. LeSean McCoy, who sat out Week 10 for what was described as maintenance-related reasons, and Darrel Williams would helm the backfield against Los Angeles if Damien Williams unexpectedly fails to suit up.
WAS Washington • #29
Age: 22 • Experience: 2 yrs.
Injury
Knee
Guice is off injured reserve and does not carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Jets. Guice suffered his latest knee injury in Week 1 against the Eagles. Coach Bill Callahan stated late this week he was confident that Guice will see plenty of action versus New York, with Chris Thompson (toe) ruled out for the contest. However, Guice is still expected to work behind veteran Adrian Peterson for at least this week.
ARI Arizona • #29
Age: 23 • Experience: 2 yrs.
Injury
Hamstring
Edmonds will remain out for Sunday's divisional battle against the 49ers after another week of missed practices. Kenyan Drake and David Johnson will continue to serve as the top backfield duo for Arizona against San Francisco, with Drake notably having gashed the normally tough unit for 162 scrimmage yards in his team debut Week 9.
ATL Atlanta • #24
Age: 27 • Experience: 6 yrs.
Injury
Foot
Freeman is out for Sunday's NFC South matchup against the Panthers after missing practice all week with the sprain that knocked him out of the Week 10 win over the Saints. Brian Hill, who rushed for 61 yards on a career-high 20 carries against New Orleans after Freeman went down, will head up the backfield versus Carolina, with Kenjon Barner and Qadree Ollison around to back him up.
SF San Francisco • #31
Age: 27 • Experience: 5 yrs.
Injury
Knee
Mostert is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals after three limited practices this past week. If active, Mostert would be line for a solid backup role behind Tevin Coleman should Matt Breida (ankle) miss the contest.
IND Indianapolis • #20
Age: 25 • Experience: 2 yrs.
Injury
Ankle
Wilkins is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars after missing practice all this past week. Wilkins' role as the third running back would be filled by Jonathan Williams against Jacksonville.
Wide receiver injuries
MIN Minnesota • #19
Age: 29 • Experience: 6 yrs.
Injury
Hamstring
Thielen will not play in Sunday's Week 11 matchup against the Broncos after sitting out practice all week. Stefon Diggs and Bisi Johnson will continue to serve as the top two receiver options for Kirk Cousins versus a Denver defense that's allowing the fourth-fewest Fantasy points per game (15.3) to wide receivers in standard scoring formats.
SF San Francisco • #17
Age: 32 • Experience: 10 yrs.
Injury
Ribs
Sanders is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Cardinals after failing to practice all week, but is expected to play, per early Sunday reports. Sanders was forced from the Week 10 overtime loss to the Seahawks with the injury. Deebo Samuel and Kendrick Bourne would be in line to slot in as the top two wideout options for Jimmy Garoppolo if Sanders can't suit up, with Dante Pettis (back) likely set for No. 3 duties if he's able to take the field.
IND Indianapolis • #13
Age: 30 • Experience: 8 yrs.
Injury
Calf
Hilton will sit out another game in Week 11 against the Jaguars. Zach Pascal and the tight end duo of Jack Doyle and Eric Ebron should be the biggest beneficiaries of Hilton's third straight absence, while Chester Rogers will continue serving in the No. 2 receiver role with Parris Campbell (hand) ruled out for the contest as well. All of Indianapolis' pass catchers will have the benefit of Jacoby Brissett back under center after he missed the Week 10 loss to the Dolphins with an MCL sprain.
CIN Cincinnati • #18
Age: 31 • Experience: 9 yrs.
Injury
Ankle
Green remains out in Week 11 versus the Raiders. Tyler Boyd, Auden Tate and Alex Erickson are in line to continue serving as the top three wideout options for Cincinnati.
BAL Baltimore • #15
Age: 22 • Experience: Rookie
Injury
Ankle
Brown is officially questionable for Sunday's Week 11 matchup versus the Texans after a pair of limited practices this past week, but as per early Sunday morning reports, he will play against Houston. Brown mustered a 4-80-1 line against the Bengals in Week 10 after playing through the injury in that contest.
HOU Houston • #15
Age: 25 • Experience: 4 yrs.
Injury
Hamstring
Fuller will not play in Sunday's conference showdown against the Ravens. Fuller practiced in limited fashion all week, but he's apparently not yet well enough to get into game action. Kenny Stills, DeAndre Carter and Keke Coutee will continue to slot in behind DeAndre Hopkins at receiver, with Stills claiming Fuller's No. 2 role.
LAR L.A. Rams • #12
Age: 26 • Experience: 6 yrs.
Injury
Concussion
Cooks remains out Sunday night against the Bears. Cooper Kupp, who was blanked in a Week 10 loss to the Steelers, and Robert Woods will continue to serve as the top two wideout options for Jared Goff, while Josh Reynolds will slot in as the No. 3 receiver.
PHI Philadelphia • #17
Age: 29 • Experience: 8 yrs.
Injury
Ankle
Jeffery will not suit up for Sunday's Week 11 matchup against the Patriots after missing practice all week. His absence will thrust the just-signed Jordan Matthews into a sizable role in his first game back with the team, while Nelson Agholor will presumably slot in as the No. 1 receiver. Mack Hollins and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside will serve as No. 3 and No. 4 options, respectively, but they'll all be facing a Patriots defense that's allowed the fewest Fantasy points per game (11.9) to wide receivers in standard scoring formats.
IND Indianapolis • #15
Age: 22 • Experience: Rookie
Injury
Hand
Davis is doubtful for Sunday's contest against the Chiefs after missing practice all week. With Davis looking unlikely to play, Tennessee's top three receiver options against Kansas City could well be Adam Humphries, A.J. Brown and Tajae Sharpe.
IND Indianapolis • #15
Age: 22 • Experience: Rookie
Injury
Hand
Campbell will remain out in Week 11 against the Jaguars. His absence will give Marcus Johnson a chance to bump up to the No. 3 receiver role versus Jacksonville.
DEN Denver • #17
Age: 24 • Experience: 2 yrs.
Injury
Knee
Hamilton is questionable for Sunday's interconference matchup versus the Vikings after finishing the week with a pair of limited practices. Hamilton suffered the injury in Thursday's session, and if he were unable to suit up, Tim Patrick and Diontae Spencer would slot into the No. 2 and No. 3 wideout roles, respectively, against Minnesota.
SF San Francisco • #18
Age: 24 • Experience: 2 yrs.
Injury
Back
Pettis is questionable for Sunday's battle versus the Cardinals after a trio of limited practices this past week. Pettis would presumably be in line for No. 3 receiver duties behind Deebo Samuel and Kendrick Bourne if Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) were to miss the contest. In turn, if Pettis were to sit, Marquise Goodwin, who hasn't caught a pass since Week 6, would fill that third role.
WAS Washington • #10
Age: 27 • Experience: 6 yrs.
Injury
Hamstring
Richardson will miss Sunday's Week 11 matchup versus the Jets after sitting out practice all week. While rookie Terry McLaurin will slot in as the No. 1 receiver option for newly named starter Dwayne Haskins, Trey Quinn is expected to bump up to the No. 2 role against New York, and Kelvin Harmon should fill Quinn's usual No. 3 position.
NYJ N.Y. Jets • #18
Age: 31 • Experience: 10 yrs.
Injury
Knee
Thomas is questionable to face the Redskins in Week 11 after three limited practices this past week. The speedy Vyncint Smith would slot in as New York's No. 3 receiver versus Washington were Thomas to sit.
Tight end injuries
SF San Francisco • #85
Age: 26 • Experience: 3 yrs.
Injury
Knee/Ankle
Kittle is doubtful for Sunday's NFC West matchup versus the Cardinals, and as per early Sunday morning reports, he will not play against Arizona. Kittle also failed to suit up for last Monday night's divisional loss to the Seahawks. Ross Dwelley, who secured three of seven targets for 24 yards against Seattle in Kittle's stead, would likely slot in as the top tight end, but veteran Garrett Celek would have a chance to see more action than the 12 snaps from scrimmage he logged in Week 10.
ATL Atlanta • #81
Age: 25 • Experience: 4 yrs.
Injury
Knee
Hooper will miss Sunday's divisional game versus the Panthers. Jaeden Graham and Luke Stocker will serve as Matt Ryan's top two tight end options against Carolina, but given the 67 targets Hooper had already logged through nine games, there should be extra opportunities for the rest of Atlanta's pass-catching options.
DEN Denver • #82
Age: 27 • Experience: 5 yrs.
Injury
Knee
Heuerman is doubtful for Sunday's interconference matchup against the Vikings. Rookie Noah Fant will continue to see the majority of tight end reps for Denver.
CHI Chicago • #80
Age: 28 • Experience: 6 yrs.
Injury
Calf
Burton on injured reserve on Saturday. His absence would normally leave Adam Shaheen as the top tight end, but the latter is going to miss Week 11 at minimum with his own foot injury.
WAS Washington • #85
Age: 35 • Experience: 14 yrs.
Injury
Concussion
Davis will remain out in Sunday's Week 11 interconference matchup against the Jets. Jeremy Sprinkle will continue to serve as Washington's top tight end option versus New York.
LAR L.A. Rams • #81
Age: 25 • Experience: 3 yrs.
Injury
Wrist
Everett is questionable for Sunday night's battle versus the Bears after three limited practices this week, but coach Sean McVay is on record saying he expects Everett to suit up. The Rams' Tyler Higbee (knee) shares the same designation but managed to work back to a limited practice Saturday.
NE New England • #83
Age: 27 • Experience: 4 yrs.
Injury
Knee
LaCosse is questionable to take on the Eagles in Week 11 after three limited practices this past week. Even if LaCosse does suit up, Ben Watson still slots in as the top tight end option for New England.
Kicker injuries
SF San Francisco • #9
Age: 37 • Experience: 15 yrs.
Injury
Quadriceps
Gould is doubtful for Sunday's NFC West battle versus the Cardinals missing practice all week. Gould missed last Monday night's overtime loss to the Seahawks with the injury, and Chase McLaughlin, who was 3-for-4 on field goals and made his only extra-point try as his replacement in that contest, would fill in for Gould again if the latter can't suit up.
