Fantasy Injury Updates: Latest news on Chris Godwin, Julio Jones, Corey Davis affecting Week 10 start ’em, sit ’em decisions



Chris Godwin, Julio Jones, and Corey Davis are all key wide receivers for their teams — both real-life and fantasy. They’re also all “questionable” heading into Week 10, which is sure to cause some start ’em, sit ’em headaches throughout Sunday morning. (Update: Jones has been ruled out and placed on the IR.) That’s why we’ll be here with the latest news and updates up until kickoff.

Is Chris Godwin playing Week 10?

UPDATE: The Athletic’s Greg Auman reported Saturday afternoon that Godwin is expected to play

Godwin (foot) managed to get in a limited practice on Friday, but Bucs coach Bruce Arians has already said the receiver will be a game-time decision for Sunday’s game against Washington.

With Antonio Brown (ankle) and Rob Gronkowski (back) already ruled out, Godwin will have plenty of opportunities if he’s active. If he’s out, O.J. Howard and Tyler Johnson would likely benefit the most and be borderline starters in 12-team leagues.

Is Julio Jones playing Week 10?

UPDATE: The Titans have placed Jones on IR, meaning he’ll be out until at least Week 13. 

Jones aggravated his hamstring injury in practice on Thursday and failed to practice on Friday, putting his availability for Sunday’s game against New Orleans in serious doubt. 

This is nothing new for the Titans, and so far this season, we haven’t seen a secondary receiver consistently be able to take advantage of Jones missing time. Perhaps Nick Westbrook-Ikhine or Chester Rogers will have a good game, but neither are worth using in even 12-team leagues despite the great matchup. If Jones is active, have him in your lineups as usual.

Is Corey Davis playing Week 10?

Davis (hip) was limited in practice all week, but coach Robert Saleh has already said Davis will play this week against the Bills.

Davis has missed the past two games, and in that span, rookie Elijah Moore has broken out as New York’s go-to receiver. Considering Davis hasn’t played much with QB Mike White, it’s tough to know how the targets will be distributed. Given the matchup, we view Davis as just a borderline flex in 12-team leagues, but there’s a good chance he’ll lead the Jets in targets this week, so that’s worth at least a little something.
