Sunday marks the official start of the Fantasy postseason for a sizable chunk of leagues across a variety of formats, exponentially increasing the importance of the injury report. However, much to the chagrin of many owners, this week's medical outlook is littered with some of the biggest names across the Fantasy landscape. The injury bug has struck at the worst possible time for some prominent pieces, leaving many scrambling. Without further delay, let's immerse ourselves into the latest medical news on many of the players that could help make or break your Fantasy playoff berth:
The Lions' Matthew Stafford (back) is questionable to face the Cardinals on Sunday after three limited practices this week. However, as per early Sunday reports, he's expected to make his 125th consecutive start. Veteran Matt Cassell would step in should Stafford suffer an unexpected setback.
The Bears' Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is off the injury report and will start Sunday night's showdown against the Rams. Chase Daniel, who threw for 515 yards and generated an impressive 69.7 completion percentage over the last two games as the starter, heads back to the bench.
The Ravens' Joe Flacco (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs after working all the way back up to a full practice on Friday.
