Is Josh Allen playing week 10?

Allen (elbow) was officially listed as “questionable” in the Bills’ most recent injury report ahead of their Week 10 matchup against the Vikings. After sitting in practice earlier in the week, the MVP nominee was able to do limited work on Friday, which bodes well for his chances of qualifying. Bill’s head coach Sean McDermott told reporters Friday that they haven’t ruled out Allen for Sunday, but are taking it “one day and one hour at a time.”

If Allen plays, he’s a must in QB1 as we have to assume Buffalo wouldn’t risk using him if he wasn’t healthy. However, if he fails, Case Keenum gets the start and should only be picked up when no other streamers are available on the waiver wire. With Minnesota’s pass defense struggling this year, we’d still start Stefon Diggs and Gabriel Davis, but Isaian McKenzie and Dawson Knox are getting a lot riskier. Minnesota’s D/ST would also be in play as it would be more likely to collect turnover and takeaways.

Is Matthew Stafford playing week 10?

Rams head coach Sean McVay said Friday Stafford (concussion) is a doubt for late afternoon’s game against the Cardinals but he’s “making good progress.” according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Stafford is another quarterback that will be a gametime decision, and we won’t know until closer to 2:55 p.m. ET Sunday. He did not train Thursday after being placed on the league’s concussion record on Wednesday. If Stafford isn’t playing it’s going to be easy, John Wolford would start, but he’s not worthy of being used in single-QB leagues. With the Rams playing late game and with limited options (Sam Ehlinger, Jimmy Garoppolo, Taylor Heinicke, Wolford), Fantasy owners should plan to bench Stafford and if possible with a better QB from the early games to go. Cooper Kupp is a must either way, and TE Tyler Higbee has such a cheap matchup we’d stick with him even if Stafford were out, but with Allen Robinson II there’s no need to risk it. Given that Arizona’s D/ST has also increased in value.

Will Kyler Murray play week 10?

Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury told reporters Friday that Murray (hamstring) will be a play decider for Sunday afternoon’s game against the Rams. according to ESPN’s Josh Weinfuss. Murray didn’t train on Wednesday, but he did participate in limited sessions on Thursday and Friday. With the QB training with two threats at the end of the week, there’s a good chance we’ll see him on Sunday.

However, owners shouldn’t expect quite as much from Murray in the running game, which detracts from its value, but we still think Murray’s high cap is worth waiting for. Jimmy Garoppolo is the best late-game backup option, with Sam Ehlinger next on the list due to his matchup. You could just add Cardinals backup Colt McCoy to ensure you have the Cardinals starter no matter what. Either way, you’ll need another late-game QB on your list if you’re going to wait for Murray. McCoy has a decent floor/ceiling in the mediocre matchup and he’s good enough to hold DeAndre Hopkins and Zach Ertz in fantasy lineups.
