Deshaun Watson Officially Inactive For Week 4

Sunday, October 1, 11:59 AM

Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson (shoulder) is officially inactive for Week 4 versus the Baltimore Ravens, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He had been listed as questionable after practicing in a limited capacity all week long. While it seemed like he had a chance to play, reports on Sunday morning made it clear that he wouldn't be ready in time for kickoff. Fourth-round rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson will start in his absence, ranking as a fantasy QB3.

Patrick Mahomes Sinks Jets With His Legs In Close Win

Monday, October 2, 2:26 AM

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes completed 18-of-30 passes for 203 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions with seven carries for 51 yards in Week 4's narrow 23-20 win over the New York Jets. Mahomes found Noah Gray for an early 34-yard score, but he began short-circuiting quite a bit thereafter. Mahomes badly underthrew one for a second-quarter giveaway, and his second turnover was just as curious after he lofted another pass into C.J. Mosley's waiting arms. Mahomes found an opening for a heartbreaking 25-yard rush on third-and-23 before tossing a third pick into triple coverage that was wiped away on a debatable holding penalty. Fantasy managers may not like the stat line, but Mahomes hung in there on the road just enough against a swarming Jets defense. Things should come much more easily for the two-time MVP in Week 5 against the tissue-soft Minnesota Vikings defense.
