A torn tendon in your thumb sounds painful. This is especially true if your job is to throw a football. Matthew Stafford would know, which is why we’ll be watching his participation in Friday’s practice very closely before deciding what his Fantasy value for Week 11 will be.
If Stafford is able to throw Friday, he looks like a low-end starting quarterback against a Carolina defense that was just gashed by Tom Brady. Of course, that’s less true if Kenny Golladay (hip), Marvin Jones (knee), and D’Andre Swift (concussion) can’t play. In other words, you need to make a backup plan if Stafford (or his receivers) can’t go.
Jameis Winston was an interesting option until it was learned Friday that Taysom Hill will start for the Saints. Winston was a top five Fantasy quarterback last year and would face a Falcons defense allowing the most Fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. Hill is now a good option in 2QB and Superflex leagues, although we can’t be sure how much either quarterback will play.
