Russell Wilson Throws Three More Touchdowns

Sunday, October 1, 10:19 PM

Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson didn't have his third straight 300-yard game on Sunday, but he did throw three more touchdowns without turning the ball over to lead the team to a big 31-28 come-from-behind win over the Bears on the road in Chicago for their first victory of the season. Wilson finished the contest 21-for-28 for 223 yards while taking one sack for a loss of nine yards. He added four carries for 13 yards. The 34-year-old signal-caller now has nine touchdown passes to only two interceptions through the first four games with new head coach Sean Payton. The Broncos may not be a playoff team, but Payton's influence has certainly had a positive impact on Wilson and has made him a QB1 streaming option in good matchups. Week 5 against the New York Jets will be more of a shy-away matchup, however.

Justin Herbert Has A Fractured Finger

Monday, October 2, 11:03 AM

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert (finger) suffered a fractured finger on his left, non-throwing hand in the Week 4 win over the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday, according to sources. Herbert's finger also suffered a gruesome nail injury, but he somehow finished the game and with the team's bye coming in Week 5, Herbert shouldn't miss any time. Once he returned to the game after having a split put on his fractured finger, he didn't take any snaps under center, except for a fourth-down sneak late in the game. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said he doesn't see this being a major issue for Herbert moving forward. The 25-year-old saved his fantasy day on Sunday with two rushing touchdowns, but he should remain a strong QB1 option coming off the bye for a Week 6 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys on Monday, Oct. 16.
