Just such as the authorities advised, you were very patient on draft day.
Kevin Kolb may have watched Donovan McNabb from the sidelines for your previous three seasons, but when the Eagles shipped the franchise to Washington, Kolb became a scorching button quarterback.
Some fantasy football outlets even listed the University of Houston gunslinger as the seventh-best worth at the position.
So that you plucked Kolb somewhere inside the sixth or seventh spherical, presumably ahead of veterans just like Brett Favre, Carson Palmer as well as the brand new experience with the Redskins. You got your guy.
Hopefully, you went 1 step additional and guarded him with all the addition of backup Michael Vick. If not, you’re possibly too late.
Vick, owned in roughly 7 % of fantasy leagues heading into Few days one, is certainly the most engaging totally free agent pick up this 7 days. He was terrific working Andy Reid’s offense immediately after coming into Sunday’s game in opposition to the Packers when Kolb suffered a concussion.
He darted by means of Inexperienced Bay’s protection for 103 rushing yards and 175 by means of the air, focusing on 16 completions principally inside the second half.
Let’s experience it, Kolb may be the man when healthful, but with all the NFL taking an very cautious method to concussions, Vick will likely be under center this 7 days in opposition to the Detroit Lions. Perhaps next 7 days at Jacksonville, too.
Thinking of Chicago QB Jay Cutler just totaled 372 passing yards in opposition to the Lions, Vick may be the perfect solution for your short-term trouble.
It may be a very various Eagles’ offense in Vick’s palms, but there is still lots to like, together with WRs DeSean Jackson, Jason Avant and Jeremy Maclin. Now, if we are able to just get Vick to appear at TE Brent Celek a number of a lot more times, anything will be perfect.
one. Hines Ward, WR, Pittsburgh: Veteran has 15 receptions for 212 yards in last two vs. Titans.
two. Michael Turner, RB, Atlanta: If Falcons strategy on utilizing Turner inside the passing game, now will be an opportune time.
three. Darren McFadden, RB, Oakland: No reason to believe DM will slow down in opposition to St. Louis this 7 days.
one. Donovan McNabb, QB, Washington: Wasn’t distinctive vs. Cowboys, so might have to have 1 a lot more 7 days to obtain your trust.
two. Chad Henne, QB, Miami: If the Vikings could make Drew Brees appear ordinary, there is not much hope for Henne.
three. Fred Taylor, RB, New England: With Laurence Maroney back again inside the fold, things are about to get messy in Patriots’ backfield.
Brandon Jackson, RB, Inexperienced Bay: Jackson gets the workload now with Ryan Grant (ankle) out for your season.
