Welcome to game day.
Week 5 kicked off with a 38-24 Patriots victory over the Colts on Thursday Night Football. New England's backfield came alive, with Sony Michel falling just 2 yards short of the century mark while James White led the team in catches (10) and receiving yards (77). Meanwhile, Josh Gordon hauled in Tom Brady's 500th career touchdown pass.

As always, keep your internet machines tuned here for the latest fantasy news and developments throughout Sunday.
Note: All times listed as eastern.
Both teams playing in Sunday Night Football have revealed their inactive lists, though neither shouldn't affect fantasy rosters. To see the full details, head on over to NFL.com/inactives.
The Seahawks' passing game remains problematic and inconsistent, but David Moore has provided a badly needed shot in the arm. The second-year wideout caught two touchdowns against the Rams Sunday, building on the previous week's two-catch performance. Moore, whom the Seahawks cut last year, could carve even deeper into Brandon Marshall's workload.
Another Rams wideout has left the game for a concussion evaluation. Cooper Kupp, who leads the team with six receptions for 90 yards and a touchdown, left during the third quarter of Sunday's tilt with the Eagles. Unless Kupp can return, Los Angeles will have to reoriente the passing game around Robert Woods.
Adam Thielen continues to win games for fantasy players. Sunday marked the fifth-consecutive game the wideout went over 100 receiving yards, a feat never before accomplished in NFL history. The Vikings lead the Eagles 17-3 and have marched deep into Philadelphia territory, so perhaps Thielen will do even more damage before the drive concludes.
Not only do the Rams find themselves tied up with the Seahawks at halftime, but wide receiver Brandin Cooks left the game after absorbing a helmet-to-helmet hit. Cooks remained on the turf for an extended period, though he did eventually leave under his own power. Officially, Cooks is being evaluated for a concussion. Assuming he does not return, Jared Goff will have to funnel the passing game through Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and Todd Gurley.
The Vikings haven't found much success on offense due to their protection issues, but that didn't keep them from reaching the end zone in a less-conventional manner:
Shortly after Pierre Gar��on left Sunday's game, the 49ers announced that top running back Matt Breida joined him on the sidelines with an ankle injury. Breida has developed into a reliable weapon in the aftermath of Jerrick McKinnon's season-ending knee injury, but he too has battled lower-body ailments. Officially, Breida is questionable to return.
5:14 p.m. - Pierre Gar��on questionable to return with shoulder injury
The 49ers saw another major offensive producer go down with an injury, this time Pierre Gar��on. The veteran wideout only caught one pass before his exit for 9 yards. San Francisco left Marquise Godwin and Dante Pettis on the inactive list, leaving few proven options for C.J. Beathard and the passing game.
The Rams offense continues to make fantasy heroes of its stars. Todd Gurley punched in Los Angeles' first score of the day, his league-best seventh touchdown of the season. Gurley nearly had a second TD on the following drive, though replay overturned it. Either way, the All-Pro running back already has 30 yards on eight carries as well as another 21 yards on three receptions with nearly three quarters to play.
Robby Anderson entered Week 5 with just 108 receiving yards and a touchdown on the season. He more than doubled those numbers via a three-catch, 123-yard, two-touchdown performance during the Jets' 34-16 victory over the Broncos. Anderson's inconsistent workload makes him a difficult wideout to start for fantasy players, but days like this will make him feasible for team's in a bind.
The Browns went into overtime for the third time in five weeks and, for the first time in 2018, didn't emerge with a tie or loss. Kicker Greg Joseph knocked the game winner through just as time expired. Though exciting for Cleveland fans, the game didn't do much for fantasy players. No running back or receiver for either team topping 100 yards from scrimmage.
With less than 10 seconds remaining, Mason Crosby knocked in his first field goal of the day. The score didn't result in a lead change, but after missing five attempts and an extra point, Crosby probably feels like he hit a game winner.
Few place kickers in NFL history have ever had a game as brutal as Mason Crosby's performance against the Lions. Crosby shanked four field-goal attempts as well as an extra point. The Packers have backed Crosby through difficult stretches before -- he missed nearly 40 percent of his field-goal attempts in 2012 -- but such a poor showing at an indoor stadium has to at least raise questions.
Another franchise record fell Sunday. Wideout A.J. Green went over 100 yards receiving for the 32nd time in a Cincinnati uniform, surpassing Chad Johnson for the most in Bengals history. Green still trails Johnson in receptions (582 to 751) and touchdowns (63 to 63) in team history, though the latter could fall in 2018.
After All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey dimissed Tyreek Hill as merely a punt returner, the Chiefs wideout beat Ramsey for a 51-yard reception. Hill has four catches for 61 yards and another 26 yards on two carries thus far in the game. The Chiefs hold a decisive 30-7 lead with just under 10 minutes remaining.
3:26 p.m. - Patrick Mahomes becomes first QB to throw for 300 or more yards against Jags since last October
As expected, the Vikings will not have Dalvin Cook for the second-consecutive week as the star running back recovers from a hamstring issue. Darren Sproles will also miss the contest, though the Eagles will have Corey Clement available. Check out NFL.com/inactives to see the full list for both teams as well as the Cardinals, 49ers, Rams and Seahawks.
The Lions hold a 14-point early advantage over the division rival Packers thanks in large part to LeGarrette Blount. The veteran running back plowed in two early scores from inside the 5-yard line during the first quarter. He trails rookie Kerryon Johnson in rushing yardage by a 5:1 ratio, but Detroit still appears to prefer the bigger Blount near the goal line.
The Dolphins might have seen one of their most versatile players go down on the opening play of Sunday's game. The receiver and return man needed help getting off the field. Grant entered the week ranked third on the team in receptions (11) and receiving yards (152).
