Daniel Jones and Tua Tagovailoa will likely be “questionable” for their Week 6 games, and fantasy quarterback rankings will be affected should either miss time. Jones has been much better than expected this year, while Tua was solid in Week 1 before being taken out with a rib injury early in Week 2. At very least, their statuses will have an impact in two-QB/superflex leagues. We have the latest news surrounding their stations in our fantasy injury updates.

Daniel Jones injury update
UPDATE: Jones was limited on practice Thursday and remains on his way to be cleared for Sunday.
Jones remains in concussion protocol, so he has not practiced with the team this week. However, like Teddy Bridgewater last week, he has been seen throwing passes on a side field and is getting some work in a limited capacity. Joe Judge said “everything is on track” in his recovery, and it’s apparent New York thinks he has a shot to go for this game. Again, we saw Bridgewater in a similar situation last week while in the protocol, and he ended up starting for Denver and played well late in their game against the Steelers.
That said, it’s tough to speculate on a concussion, so we’re at the mercy of injury reports. If he does play, we have Jones as our QB13 for Week 6. We’ll see if Sterling Shepard (hamstring) and/or Kenny Golladay (knee) play, but the emergence of Kadarius Toney should help Jones get easy fantasy points. Assuming everything is OK with his concussion, he should also have plenty of opportunity as a scrambler with Saquon Barkley (ankle) out for at least a week. If Mike Glennon starts, he should be viewed as one of the last options to play in fantasy, but we know some people will have to start him in two-QB/superflex leagues.
Tua Tagovailoa injury update
Tagovailoa (ribs) reportedly threw well Monday and took the practice field Wednesday. Barring any setbacks, it seems Tua will suit up for the first time since he was blasted in the ribs in Week 2. Luckily for him, the matchup couldn’t get much better against Jacksonville in London.
Miami has talented skill players who should be able to take advantage of the Jags’ lowly secondary, but we’ll temper expectations a bit and rank Tua as the QB21 this week. If Jacoby Brissett gets the start, he’ll be ranked in a similar spot.
