Week 10 Start 'Em Sit 'Em: Top Injured Players to Risk Playing
Not sure whether to start Aaron Hernandez or to find another tight end in your fantasy football league's waiver wire?
Afraid that Danny Amendola isn't going to see the field much in his first game back from his injury?
With the first game getting under way tonight, here is a list of some of the top injured fantasy football players you should start or sit for Week 10.

Initially, Danny Amendola was going to miss anywhere from 6-8 weeks due to the injury he suffered in Week 5. However, after a speedy recovery, it appears that that Amendola is going to be able to go at full speed this week against the San Francisco 49ers.
I know the 49ers have a great defense, but Amendola is a target machine. Before he suffered his injury, he was one of the league leaders with 49 targets.
Amendola definitely needs to be in your lineup this week. Fantasy football owners may be worried that it is his first game back from injury, but the fact is, Amendola is Sam Bradford's favorite receiving target by far.

After being considered a longshot to play this weekend, it looks like Percy Harvin's ankle is healing well enough to the point he has a chance of playing this Sunday.
Despite this, I still wouldn't risk leaving Harvin in your lineup.
After suffering an ankle sprain in Week 9, he will not be able to go at full speed as the Minnesota Vikings take on the Detroit Lions. Usually Harvin is one of the key components of the Vikings offense, but with this injury, expect his touches to be limited.

Fantasy football owners still don't know if Aaron Hernandez is going to be able to play.
After returning from his ankle injury for Weeks 6 and 7, Hernandez suffered a setback and missed the New England Patriots' last game.
He has had two weeks off and it appears that Hernandez should be good to go as the Patriots take on the Buffalo Bills. The Bills have one of the worst defenses in the NFL, and Hernandez has had success against them in the past. Last year, he caught seven passes for 138 yards and one touchdown.
Hernandez is a must start every week as long as he is active.
Jamaal Charles, Kansas City Chiefs

Even if Jamaal Charles is able to go, fantasy football owners need to leave him on their bench.
In his last three games, Charles only has 29 carries for 83 yards. Let's face it, the Kansas City Chiefs are awful and all their players' fantasy football stock are plummeting.
With Charles dealing with a neck strain and the fact that he is playing against the Pittsburgh Steelers, he will be a huge dud this week.
