Injuries and inconsistent quarterback play were largely Sunday's big stories in fantasy football, as the New York Giants' passing game was obliterated by the former, losing Odell Beckham Jr. (broken ankle), Dwayne Sherrick McManis Womens Jersey Harris (foot), Brandon Marshall (ankle) and Sterling Shepard (ankle) to injuries in the same game, while elsewhere both Charles Clay (knee) and DeVante Parker (ankle) also suffered early exits. Meanwhile, quarterbacks managed nearly as many turnovers (21) as they threw touchdowns (25) during the 1 p.m. ET game block. It wasn't all bad news, though. Leonard Fournette extended what has been an outstanding year for rookie running backs, and Carson Wentz continued to show he's one of the game's best up-and-coming stars at quarterback. As we do each week, we recap the week's winners and losers from a fantasy perspective, complete with applicable game and historical data. Check back after the conclusion of the Sunday night game for more picks of the week's best and worst. Leonard Fournette, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars: For the fifth consecutive game to begin his NFL career, Fournette found the end zone, helping him join a group of only four other players since 1950 with a touchdown streak of at least five games to begin an NFL career (see the chart below). He managed the first 30-point fantasy performance -- PPR or non-PPR -- of his young career, finishing with the best non-PPR score of the 1 p.m. ET block (30.4) and the second best in PPR (31.4). With that, Fournette now has 95.4 non-PPR and 108.4 PPR fantasy points in his five-game career. Since 1950, only eight running backs have had more non-PPR fantasy points through five games: Eric Dickerson (132.7), Billy Sims (112.6), Adrian Peterson (106.2), Marcus Allen (106.2), Gale Sayers (104.4), Kareem Hunt (99.9, though he plays his fifth game on Sunday Night Football), Marshall Faulk (99.3) and Joe Cribbs (97.1). Nine have had more using PPR scoring: Dickerson (150.7), Allen (127.2), Sims (123.6), Sayers (119.4), Cribbs (119.1), Faulk (116.3), Peterson (116.2), Hunt (112.9, pending Sunday night's game) and Curt Warner (110.1). Fournette also finds himself on pace for 349 carries, which not only shows the Jaguars' continued reliance on him as their offensive centerpiece, but also puts him on track for the fifth-largest total by any rookie Jean Segura #2 Womens running back in history. Carson Wentz, QB, Philadelphia Eagles: In a week during which Drew Brees, Kirk Cousins and Matt Ryan (plus Trevor Siemian) were all on their bye week, many fantasy owners were sent scrambling to find replacements at quarterback. Wentz was a popular choice, started in 48.9 percent of ESPN leagues, the highest rate in any of his five games this season by more than 12 percent, and his second-highest start percentage in his young, two-year career (65.8 percent, 2016 Week 5). The move paid huge dividends, as Wentz rewarded his owners with a career-high 27.26 fantasy points, easily shattering his previous personal best set just two weeks earlier (21.04, in Week 3). He has elevated himself to a weekly QB2 option in two-quarterback leagues and in fact a borderline QB1, thanks in large part to significant improvements this season in terms of yards per attempt (7.7, up from 6.2 during his rookie season) and interception rate (1.7 percent, down from 2.3). Marlon Mack, RB, Indianapolis Colts: Though his wasn't one of the best fantasy point totals of the week -- his 16.3 PPR fantasy points were just fifth best among the 1 p.m. ET game block -- Mack's effort was one of the most important of the week. Owned in just 3.36 percent and started in 0.15 percent of ESPN leagues in Week 5, Mack managed 91 yards and a score on his nine carries, including a 35-yard run late in overtime that set up the game-winning field goal as well as four runs of at least 11 yards. That it came in his first game back from a shoulder injury while Frank Gore managed just 11.6 PPR fantasy points is significant, as it could signal a closer division of the rushing chores between them going forward. Odell Beckham Jr., WR, New York Giants: Though the news on Beckham isn't good -- he suffered a broken ankle late in Sunday's game and likely will need season-ending surgery -- he delivered his fantasy owners yet another outstanding score before exiting early. With 21.5 PPR fantasy points, he managed the 23rd game of at least 20 in his career, a total that -- since Beckham's 2014 Week 5 NFL debut -- is second most among all flex-eligible (RB/WR/TE) players, behind only Antonio Brown (28).
