A torn tendon in your thumb sounds painful. This is especially true if your job is to throw a football. Matthew Stafford knows, but he is expected to play today against Carolina.
Stafford looked like a low-end starting quarterback against a Carolina defense that was just gashed by Tom Brady. Of course, that's less true with Kenny Golladay (hip), D'Andre Swift (concussion) and Danny Amendola out.
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.
How do feel now about Taysom Hill starting for the Saints? We talk Sunday starts & sits on the Fantasy Football Today podcast. Listen below and subscribe at Apple, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts:

Matchups that matter
Waiver Wire Targets
IND Indianapolis • #17
Age: 38 • Experience: 17 yrs.
Rivers had volume concerns at the beginning of the year, with fewer than 30 attempts in three of his first four starts. But the Colts have aired it out more as of late and they shouldn't have much choice with Aaron Rodgers on the other sideline.
HOU Houston • #4
Age: 25 • Experience: 4 yrs.
You might look at the schedule and think Watson't rotten luck continues. But the Patriots have been the worst in the NFL against the pass when rated by yards per attempt. Watson was bad in the weather last week, but he'll have no such concerns at home against New England. He and Cam Newton are both solid plays this week.
BAL Baltimore • #8
Age: 23 • Experience: 3 yrs.
This is just a guess, but I don't expect Jackson to be over 10% rostered, and he's my top projected quarterback on the slate. The Titans defense has been bad in most regards this season and Jackson just posted his second-highest passing total of the season. I won't be as excited about Jackson if he's chalky, but it's hard to imagine he will with his recent performance.
