Fantasy Football 2011: Musts, Trusts and Busts (Week 10)

0 of 3

    In this week's version of Musts, Trusts and Busts I answer the question that everyone has been asking for five straight weeks. When will Andre Johnson return from the hamstring injury suffered in Week 4? You'll have to read on to find out.

    The Andre Johnson conundrum is an easy segway into an even bigger issue facing each and every fantasy football owner when attempting to properly manage their starting lineups; injuries in general.

    Week 10’s version of the MTB will not only update you on the current status’ of multiple big name players, but it will also afford you the knowledge to decide which players you should plug in for your fallen warriors.
