Lock has a right shoulder injury that kept him from playing the last two weeks. Head coach Vic Fangio deemed his chances of playing against the Patriots in Week 5 as “50-50” and said the team would see how much progress he’s made early this week, the story said. Rypien started in the win over the Jets and will continue to start if Lock isn’t given the green light to return this week.
DEN QB Brett Rypien - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 6 at New England Patriots
Making his first NFL start two weeks ago, Brett Rypien got off to a hot start and ended up doing just enough to help his team win against the Jets. He threw for 242 yards and two TDs, but got a bit careless with the ball late, throwing two of his three interceptions in the fourth quarter. Rypien may again get the starting nod on Sunday facing a New England defense that is No. 10 versus the pass. He should only be started if you’re out of QB options.
