Both tight ends are dealing with concussions. This means Jeremy Sprinkle will get his crack at the true starter's reps for the Redskins, who will be rolling with Colt McCoy at quarterback. Up to this point, Sprinkle has 12 career catches for 112 yards and two touchdowns in 31 games. It's possible Sprinkle becomes a good safety net this week for McCoy against a very good Patriots defense. But it's still a very tough matchup.
WAS TE Vernon Davis - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 6 at Miami Dolphins
Vernon Davis sat out last week with a concussion, and has been limited in practice this week. He gets a favorable matchup against the Dolphins if he does play, but it's worth monitoring his health status. Even if he does play, we don't expect a whole lot. He's just outside of TE1 range.
