Week 5 is a brutal week for quarterback injuries as Fantasy owners deal with their first non-weather byes of the season. With four teams getting the week off, the quarterback pickings in Fantasy leagues were already slim, but up to three more regular starters at the position could be on the sidelines in Week 5.
The Raiders already know they’ll be without Derek Carr, and EJ Manuel is in line to make just his second start since 2015 (the Bills inexplicably benched a healthy Tyrod Taylor for Manuel in Week 17 last year). The Titans may or may not have Marcus Mariota under center, but they went out and signed Brandon Weeden during the week just in case. The Vikings have been playing without Sam Bradford for weeks, but he has a chance to return to action Monday after showing back up in practice this week.
Injuries must be accounted for when making Fantasy and picks pool/gambling decisions, and we’ve taken care of a lot of the legwork for you by collecting all the final injury reports in one place. Below you’ll see the game status of every player on each team’s injury report if they’re ruled questionable or worse a few minutes after they’re in. We’ll also give quick thoughts on how those designations affect your decisions for Week 5.
