Nothing can derail a potentially successful fantasy football season quicker than injuries. That’s especially true at the ever-so-critical wide receiver position, where elite-level players can make or break a contending fantasy team. As we head into Week 11, several WRs find themselves on the injury report for their respective teams. Therefore, fantasy managers need to pay close attention to any WR injury updates and reports as NFL kickoffs draw near.
Fantasy WR Injury Report Week 11 | AFC
In the middle of what has seemed like a brutal season full of injuries, these are the fantasy-relevant WRs in the AFC currently on the NFL’s Week 11 injury report. With some players trending in the wrong direction, many fantasy managers might need to consider secondary options.
Rashod Bateman, Baltimore Ravens
Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports Rashod Bateman (illness) practiced Friday [November 19]. Bateman was added to the injury report Thursday as a non-participant but appears good to go for Week 11 against the Chicago Bears.
Marquise Brown, Baltimore Ravens
Zrebiec also reported Marquise Brown (thigh) practiced Friday. Brown was a DNP on Wednesday and Thursday, but his return to practice suggests he should be good to go for Sunday.
Donovan Peoples-Jones, Cleveland Browns
Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports Donovan Peoples-Jones (groin) participated in Friday’s practice.
Peoples-Jones was a limited participant on Wednesday but missed Thursday’s session. He has a chance to play in Week 11 against Detroit.
Chase Claypool, Pittsburgh Steelers
Brooke Pryor of ESPN reported Chase Claypool (toe) was a full participant at Friday’s practice and will return to face the Los Angeles Chargers. Claypool missed last week’s game after suffering a toe injury towards the end of Week 9.

DeAndre Hopkins, Arizona Cardinals
James Palmer of NFL Network reported DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) is out for Week 11. Tyler Drake of 97.7 Arizona Sports said Hopkins was not on the field for the Cardinals’ open session of practice on Friday. Hopkins has not practiced since October 22 and will miss his third game in a row.
Allen Robinson, Chicago Bears
Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports that Allen Robinson (hamstring) is doubtful for Sunday’s contest against the Ravens. Robinson was unable to practice all week as the Bears come off their bye week. Darnell Mooney will lead the Bears’ passing game, with Marquise Goodwin and Damiere Byrd stepping into larger roles.
Amari Cooper, Dallas Cowboys
The Cowboys placed Amari Cooper on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday after testing positive for the virus. Cooper has been ruled out for Week 11 and has already been ruled out for Week 12 with the Cowboys playing on Thanksgiving, per The Dallas Morning News.
Sterling Shepard, New York Giants
Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports Sterling Shepard (quadriceps) didn’t practice Friday. Shepard has only played in two games since Week 3.
The team hoped their Week 10 bye would allow Shepard to return, but he remains a “long shot” to play on Monday Night Football against Tampa Bay.
Antonio Brown, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Scott Smith of the Buccaneers’ official site reports Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians said Antonio Brown (ankle) would not participate in Friday’s practice. Brown has not played since Week 6 and will likely miss his fourth game in a row.
Chris Godwin, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Chris Godwin was a limited participant in Friday’s practice per Greg Auman of The Athletic. Godwin was a limited participant Thursday and has an extra day to recover as the Bucs play on Monday Night Football.
