Fantasy Football injury updates: Patrick Mahomes, Tom Brady, Jameis Winston could affect the QB ranking of Week 15

It seems likely that Patrick Mahomes, Tom Brady and Jameis Winston play in Week 15 despite being disturbed on Sunday. Things could change as we receive additional injury updates during the week, but you can probably count on these three quarterbacks the same way you always would in the QB rankings (although there is a case against Brady that you will see below) ). The fantasy playoffs would be a bad time for these QB to sit down and force us to look at Chad Henne, Jarrett Stidham or Ryan Griffin.

Patrick Mahomes injury update

A blow in the first half of Sunday caused Mahomes to get up and give him his right hand (pulling). However, he never left the game. Andy Reid said later that he could tell Mahomes "it wasn't that good," while Mahomes added, "It doesn't feel very good right now, but it's something you play with."

Kansas City plays a deceptive Denver defense in week 15, and no, you're not sitting Mahomes, but maybe you would consider using a secondary weapon like Sammy Watkins if it seems that Mahomes won't play 100 percent.

WEEK 15: Main exemption pads

Tom Brady injury news

Brady attended his post-game press conference on Sunday with his right elbow tightly wrapped. "They hit me right on the elbow, that's fine," Brady told reporters. "It's probably in the injury report, but I'll be there next Sunday (against the Bengals)."

Brady's elbow may not be enough to keep him off the field, but his game should probably keep him out of your fantasy lineups. He has thrown multiple touchdowns only once in the last five games of the Patriots and is often seen on a page other than his WRs that are not called Julian Edelman. Even with the great confrontation of Bengals, you may be able to do better than Brady in week 15.

Jameis Winston's injury status

Winston missed the first series of the second half of Sunday, as the television broadcast showed him pulling to the bench while Ryan Griffin was in the QB. Bruce Arians said After the game, X-rays revealed a small fracture in Winston's right (throwing) hand.

It was Winston's classic on Sunday: 456 yards and four touchdowns combined with three interceptions. Assuming Winston is active in Week 15 against the Lions, it remains a maddeningly productive QB1. Most notable could be Mike Evans' hamstring injury, but that didn't seem to slow Winston in the second half of Sunday.
