The tight end position is much better off with Rob Gronkowski, Dawson Knox, and Logan Thomas playing, and each of them might be back for Week 10 after extended absences. Fantasy start ’em, sit ’em calls could become a lot simpler, as all three at least border on the “must-start” line. We have the latest injury updates on these three key TEs heading into the weekend.

We also have injury updates on banged-up QBs (click here), RBs (click here), and WRs (click here). For all the latest fantasy news, follow us on Twitter  @SN_Fantasy.

WEEK 10 FANTASY: Sleepers | Busts | Start ’em, sit ’em

Rob Gronkowski injury update

Gronkowski (back) missed practice Wednesday, and Tampa Bay is intending to elevate Darren Fells from the practice squad, so Gronk is looking to be on the wrong side of “questionable.” If he does play, he’ll be in line for a good matchup against a Washington defense allowing the 13th-most fantasy points per game to TEs despite largely avoiding the premier tight ends.

Gronk would be our TE5 in standard and TE7 in PPR leagues but is at risk of being on a snap count if he plays.

WEEK 10 PPR RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

Dawson Knox injury update

Knox (hand) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, so there’s a chance he could play in Week 10 against the Jets. If he’s active, he’ll be a low-end TE1, but we’ll just have to monitor his availability later in the week without a ton of information.

If he doesn’t play, keep Tommy Sweeney on your bench. He’s done nothing while Knox has been out. If he proves us wrong, good for him, but we’re willing to take that risk.

WEEK 10 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

Logan Thomas injury update

Thomas (hamstring) practiced for the first time since Week 3 on Wednesday, but we’re unsure if he’ll play and won’t know until at least Friday. If he plays, he’s essentially a must-start, although he could be on a snap count.

WEEK 10 DFS LINEUPS: FanDuel | DraftKings | Yahoo

We rank him as the TE7 in standard and TE6 in PPR leagues in the ninth-most favorable matchup for tight ends (Tampa Bay). Washington should have a pass-happy game script against an elite front-seven and potent offense on the other side of the field.
