Whenever key quarterbacks are game-time decisions, it impacts more players than just them. The trickle down effect on fantasy start ’em, sit ’em decisions extends to pass-catchers and even defenses. Matthew Stafford and Lamar Jackson are the types of QBs who would have that type of effect, so you know fantasy football owners will be looking for the latest injury updates on these “questionable” signal-callers ahead of Week 10 lineup decisions.

Is Matthew Stafford playing Week 10?
Stafford (hip, back), got in limited practices all week, but NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Saturday that Stafford is a “real game-time decision” for Sunday’s early-afternoon kickoff against the Bears, and ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Stafford will make a final decision after warming up on Sunday.
At this point, it seems likely that Stafford will play. He hasn’t missed a game since 2010 despite playing part of last season with a fracture in his back, so clearly he can play through pain. As long as he’s active, he’s safe to start in fantasy leagues. If he’s out and Jeff Driskel starts, all of Detroit’s offensive players would take a hit. Kenny Golladay would probably be the only Lions’ player worth starting

Is Lamar Jackson playing Week 10?
After missing practice on Thursday because of an illness, Jackson was back on the practice field on Friday. Nevertheless, he was still listed as “questionable” heading into Sunday’s game against the Bengals.
