NFL Network's James Palmer reports Drew Lock (shoulder) is "legitimately 50/50 to play" Week 5 against the Patriots. This lines up with coach Vic Fangio's statement earlier in the week when he said, "there's a chance" he returns within two weeks. Fangio also probably watched Brett Rypien throw three picks against the Jets on Thursday night and wants to get his starter back as soon as possible with the season already on the brinks. Lock will be returning without Courtland Sutton (ACL) and potentially without KJ Hamler (hamstring).

New England Patriots DFS Spin

Jarrett Stidham completed 5-of-13 passes for 60 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in New England's 26-10 Week 4 loss to Kansas City. Stidham replaced Brian Hoyer in the fourth quarter but it didn't help. The 24-year-old locked onto N'Keal Harry to move the ball but inevitably tossed the second and third interception of his young career in relief; one was admittedly on Julian Edelman, who dropped the ball directly into Tyrann Mathieu's lap for a pick-six. Tonight's performance only proved that no Patriots wideout is playable until Cam Newton (COVID) returns.
