Matthew Stafford "Should Be Good" For Week 5

Monday, October 2, 8:18 PM

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford (hip) suffered a hip contusion in the Week 4 overtime win over the Indianapolis Colts, but head coach Sean McVay said that Stafford "should be good" to go for Week 5 against the Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday. "We'll be smart with him, but he should be good to go," McVay said. "He's a stud, and obviously we saw him gut through that yesterday. Definitely took a good shot there. But we feel like he should be good to go." Stafford isn't expected to be limited in practice this week, but McVay said, "we'll see." He was seen limping in Sunday's victory and is "nice and sore" on Monday. The 35-year-old veteran is the QB14 in fantasy after four weeks and could be getting top wideout Cooper Kupp (hamstring) back for the first time this year against Philly.

Joshua Dobbs Solid In Week 4 Loss

Monday, October 2, 12:26 AM

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Joshua Dobbs completed 28 of 41 passes for 265 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 35-16 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. He also added 48 rushing yards on 12 carries. Dobbs was able to keep his team in the game for a while against a stout San Francisco defense, but it wasn't enough in the Week 4 blowout. In the third quarter, his two touchdown strikes to rookie wide receiver Michael Wilson helped make it a one-possession game but by then it was too little too late. With Kyler Murray (knee) not expected back for the foreseeable future, Dobbs will look to put this one behind him when the Cincinnati Bengals come to town in Week 5.
