Game day update: Lock is expected to play today, per Ian Rapoport.

Drew Lock has a questionable designation on the official Week 11 injury report. The Denver Broncos quarterback is dealing with a rib injury. He missed practice entirely on Wednesday, but was able to return in a limited role on both Thursday and Friday.

Fantasy impact: Drew Lock (rib injury)

Despite the injury, Lock is expected to play this week. He reportedly looked good in practice on Friday, a good sign for his availability this week against the visiting Miami Dolphins. Lock threw four interceptions last week in a terrible game against the Raiders.

While Lock’s status is a bit of good news for the Broncos, he is best avoided in fantasy football this week. The Dolphins defense has been pretty tough on opposing quarterbacks, especially the ones from marginal teams. They’ve only allowed just 13 touchdown passes this season, while picking off opposing passers eight times. Lock is likely to struggle again in this one.
