He didn’t return, causing backup Brian Hoyer to quarterback the rest of the game for Indianapolis. After the game, Colts head coach Frank Reich said that they believe it’s an “MCL-ish” sprain.WEEK 10 DFS LINEUPS:Y! cash | Y! GPP | DK cash | FD cash | FD GPPWith the Dolphins on tap in Week 10 and T.Y. Hilton already out, there’s a lot of opportunity in this offense. If Brissett is healthy, he should start in most fantasy leagues, as should temporary top receiver Zach Pascal. Hoyer probably isn’t a fantasy starter but could have some DFS appeal if Brissett is out. Downgrade the whole Colts offense, besides maybe Marlon Mack, if Brissett misses Week 10.MORE WEEK 10:Waiver pickups | FAAB planner | Snap counts | Trade values | Fantasy playoff SOS George Kittle injury updateKittle took a nasty shot to the knee from a helmet on Thursday Night Football, but he remained in the game and didn’t look too limited by the injury. A Friday MRI came back clean, and Kyle Shanahan told reporters that he expects Kittle to practice this week.WEEK 10 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endIt seems that any sort of tricky situation here has been avoided. Kittle remains a top TE ahead of a Week 10 meeting with the Seahawks. If Kittle ever were to miss time, his backup Ross Dwelley would step into a potentially substantial offensive role. You might’ve already forgotten, but George Kittle sustained a rough looking injury early on Thursday Night Football. It didn’t seem to hinder him in another big game, though, and he looks to be fine going forward. That’s less certain for Colts QB Jacoby Brissett, who was forced to watch Brian Hoyer quarterback Indy for much of Sunday. With the Dolphins on the Week 10 schedule, Indianapolis will feature plenty of sleeper options and potential waiver wire pickups regardless of Brissett’s injury status.For injury updates on banged-up WRs Adam Thielen and DeSean Jackson, click here.
