Below is our running Sunday morning live Week 5 Breaking News Wire. Check back all morning long, and good luck in Week 5!
NEWS: Marshawn Lynch is out for Week 5.
FANTASY: Thomas Rawls will start and Fred Jackson will share carries with Rawls.
NEWS: Redskins WR DeSean Jackson and TE Jordan Reed are both inactive for Week 5 against the Falcons.
FANTASY: Not good for the Redskins. Get both out of lineups!
NEWS: Ravens WR Steve Smith Sr. (back) is inactive for Week 5 against the Browns; Lorenzo Taliaferro (foot) is also inactive for Week 5.
FANTASY: That Ravens’ passing attack could struggle to be consistent without Sr.
NEWS: NFL Network is reporting that Julio Jones (hamstring) will be active for Week 5 against Washington.
FANTASY: Of course, setbacks happen, so check back with us all morning long, but we are hearing like “he looks great” today, so get ready for a big Week 5.
NEWS: Bills RB Karlos Williams (concussion) will not play Week 5, and word is that the runner could miss another game.
FANTASY: Boobie Dixon will start Week 5, and it looks like he could start another game as well. Cierre Wood could also get a shot, so watch him. Stay tuned.
NEWS: Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring, calf) is not expected to play in Week 5.
FANTASY: The hope is Week 6. Jeffery has been one of this year’s biggest busts, given that we are now sitting through a 5th unexpected sit. Still, once back and fully ready to rumble, he should start playing like a fantasy WR1. So, if you have held him this long, don’t sell-low. If you don’t own him, try trading for him on the cheap, as his owner is probably extremely frustrated.
NEWS: Steelers Martavis Bryant (knee) is out for Week 5 against the Chargers.
FANTASY: He suffered some sort of knee injury in practice this week, so it looks like his comeback game will be in Week 6. Get him out of lineups!
NEWS: ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Julius Thomas (questionable, hand) will be active for Sunday’s Week 5 contest against the Bucs.
FANTASY: Be careful starting him this week, and monitor this news wire all day, as setbacks happen. Of course, he has talent and could play well if good to go, but it’s tough to say how much action he will see. He is a risky play this week, no question.
NEWS: Bills WR Sammy Watkins (questionable, calf) is unlikely to play in Week 5 against the Titans.
FANTASY: We still love Tyrod Taylor in this one, but get Watkins out of lineups this week. Of course, keep checking back with us in case something changes, but it seems like he is a no-go.
