Matthew Stafford Injures Hip In Win

Sunday, October 1, 6:16 PM

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford (hip) threw for 319 yards, one touchdown, and one interception off 27-for-40 passing during Sunday's win over the Colts. The signal-caller had a rough showing during the Week 3 loss to Cincinnati, so fantasy managers had to be pleased with his performance. Unfortunately, Stafford suffered a hip injury in this one, although he reported he will be on the field for the Week 5 showdown with the Philadelphia Eagles. If he can't suit up, Brett Rypien would likely take over. However, a Stafford absence may not be an ideal scenario for the red-hot Puka Nacua and his fantasy production.

C.J. Beathard Looks Like The QB2 For Jacksonville

Sunday, August 27, 3:07 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback C.J. Beathard went 8-for-10 for 134 yards, a touchdown, and a near-perfect passer rating of 152.1 in Saturday's 31-18 preseason win over the Miami Dolphins. The vet came into camp with a leg up on rookie Nathan Rourke for the QB2 spot behind Trevor Lawrence, but the latter has been applying some pressure with his play through two games. Beathard was the second QB to take over after Lawrence in this one, leading three consecutive scoring drives to close out the first half. The performance was highlighted by a 74-yard touchdown strike to sophomore wide receiver Tim Jones, who broke open on the left side of the field and cruised in untouched for the score. Rourke quarterbacked the entire second half of the game, which saw the Jaguars put up two more touchdowns. Still, the Ohio native finished with a measly 74 passing yards on only six attempts, as Jacksonville opted to go with a more ground-heavy attack. At this point, Beathard has held onto his QB2 position but is still firmly off the fantasy radar unless something happens to Lawrence.
