As we prepare you for your Week 11 fantasy matchups, there are a ton of injuries to monitor through the weekend. Some news is good, and some not so good, but either way you need to be on top of your players' status as game time approaches on Sunday morning in order to set the best lineup possible. Here are some of this week's key injuries to note. And don't forget to double check injury status on Sunday morning!


• Tony Romo is slated to return to action for the Cowboys following an eight-week absence with a broken clavicle. Both Dallas fans and fantasy managers will welcome his return as he immediately slides into top-10 fantasy QB consideration and should be started as a QB1 against Miami.

• John Brown and Michael Floyd are both dealing with hamstring issues. At least Brown was able to get a practice in this week, while Floyd was not. Fantasy owners are right to be concerned about Brown since he's been active the last two games but posted a goose egg in each, acting as more of a decoy than anything else. But if Floyd can't play, the Cardinals will need Brown to step up.

• Alshon Jeffery has been dealing with injuries all season. When he's healthy, he's a monster in the stat sheets, but unfortunately he's been listed as questionable for Sunday's game with a shoulder and groin injury. His status is to be monitored closely as game time approaches on Sunday morning.

• Marshawn Lynch is listed as questionable with the same abdomen injury he had last week. Although he did shoulder a full workload against the Cardinals last week, the fact that he's still dealing with the injury is concerning. The Seahawks may decide to rest him against the 49ers so fantasy owners will have to keep tabs on his status.

• Any time Darren McFadden pops up on the injury report, it's concerning. This week he is listed as questionable with a groin injury, but he practiced on Friday and should be good to go. His workhorse-like volume is enough to fire him up as an RB1 against the Dolphins in Week 11.

• Calvin Johnson was able to log a practice session on Friday after sitting out on Thursday. Megatron has posted three straight games with at least 80 receiving yards and he could explode against a suspect Oakland secondary, even if he's not 100 percent. He'll be a WR1 as long as he's active Sunday morning.

• Dez Bryant has been dealing with numerous injuries but should be fine for Sunday's game in Miami. No player will benefit more from Tony Romo's return than Bryant so fantasy owners can feel good about using him in Week 11 as an elite WR1.

• Malcom Floyd has been ruled out for San Diego's game against Kansas City. He suffered a torn labrum two weeks ago on Monday night, and isn't healthy enough to return to action. Steve Johnson is now the Chargers' WR1 by default so if he's still on your waiver wire make sure you grab him ahead of Sunday's contest.
