Friday PM Update: Stafford is officially listed as questionable.

Friday update: Stafford will be listed as questionable, per Jourdan Rodrigue. Sean McVay also says that Stafford will practice today and that he’s progressing through concussion protocol. There is a chance he plays.

Thursday PM Update: Stafford isn’t practicing on Thursday and remains in concussion protocol.

The Los Angeles Rams are set to play the Arizona Cardinals in Week 10 of the NFL season. They may have to do so without quarterback Matthew Stafford as he is in the concussion protocol, per head coach Sean McVay. It remains unclear if Stafford suffered a concussion or if he just has the symptoms and is going through the protocols due to that. If he is unable to play on Sunday, John Wolford would likely get the start for Los Angeles.

Fantasy football implications for Week 10

If Stafford is active, the usual suspects will all have their fantasy relevance. Darrell Henderson, Cooper Kupp and Tyler Higbee can all be started as per usual. If Stafford sits, things get interesting. Wolford has played in four career games and has completed 23 of 42 passes for 236 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions. You have to assume if anyone stays fantasy relevant it would be Cooper Kupp. I think Henderson also will keep his head above water, but I wouldn’t start Higbee with the backup in there.
