Fantasy Football: Week 5 Start 'Em, Sit 'Em, Picks And Busts

October 1, 2019
Some Notes:

• Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen is in the concussion protocol.

• Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Christian Kirk left late Sept. 29 with an ankle injury.

• Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky left with a separated shoulder and will miss a few weeks. 

• Green Bay Packers receiver Davante Adams is dealing with a toe injury and it looks like he will miss at least Week 5. 

• Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack was in and out Sept. 29 with a leg injury.

• Denver Broncos defensive end Bradley Chubb will miss the rest of the year with a torn ACL, so that hurts the Broncos' defense.

• Thursday night game: Los Angeles Rams at Seattle Seahawks

• Monday night game: Cleveland Browns at San Francisco 49ers

• Byes: Detroit Lions and Miami Dolphins
