Michael Vick is hurt...again. I called that during the lock-out.
From bye-week fill-ins to an up-to-the-minute injury report reference, the Week 11 Musts, Trusts and Busts is the formula for your playoff push.
I have used this formula for multiple league championships, and as of right now, I have the lead in points and have clinched a playoff spot in every league that I am in.
So, why wouldn't you reference a proven formula such as the MTB when attempting to navigate the mine field known as injuries and bye weeks?
Read and construct; trust the MTB.

Michael Vick—Eagles (Ribs): The Eagles' fleet-footed QB has been officially downgraded to OUT. Matt Cassel—Chiefs (Hand): The injury to his hand is of significant nature, an injury that may shut him down for the remainder of the season.
Matthew Stafford—Lions (Finger): Some attribute Stafford's terrible four-interception showing against Chicago last week to the wind, but I am more apt to believe that it was his finger. Stafford wore a glove on his throwing hand for the first time in his young NFL career in an attempt to correct grip issues. He is officially listed as probable going into Sunday's contest versus the Panthers.

Beanie Wells—Arizona (Knee): The combination of Wells' knee injury and San Franciso's ability to absolutely dominate a game from a defensive perspective make for a bad day for the Cardinals running back.

Stevie Johnson—Buffalo (Shoulder): He has been limited in practice throughout the week. He is listed as questionable, but I believe he'll play.
Miles Austin—Cowboys (Hamstring): He is officially listed as out and, aside from three good games, has been a detriment to fantasy football owners all season. Laurent Robinson 2011 is the new Miles Austin 2009.
