The NFL is aplenty with quarterback injuries, but some of the replacement options are very tempting fantasy options.
Even if your starting quarterback didn’t get hurt, there might be a more appealing option at QB in the free agency. There are people who drafted Josh Freeman, Mark Sanchez and Joe Flacco who probably aren’t exactly satisfied with their signal-caller.
Here are three intriguing quarterbacks options moving forward.
His first outing may not have been very appealing, but consider how new Carson Palmer was to the Oakland Raiders at that point.
Palmer may have seven interceptions in three games, but he’s also thrown five touchdowns in his last two. He’s not afraid to take shots downfield, which is a great thing for fantasy owners.
Vince Young may not seem like the best option based on his stats—or should I say “stat”—this season. Young attempted one pass, but was hit as he threw, resulting in an interception. However, with all of the options Young would have at his disposal and his past performances in Tennessee, it’s hard not to be a little intrigued.
With Young possibly starting on Sunday, he’d be a nice option to have on your roster.
Matt Schaub is out for the season, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
That means it’s time for Matt Leinart to step into a starting role for an established Houston Texans team. Instead of being thrust into a pass-happy offense like he was in Arizona, Leinart steps into a run-first system in Houston.
With a top-notch running game and a solid defense, Leinart has all the pieces in place to succeed. The Texans are on a bye this week, which will give Leinart an extra week to prepare.
He’s definitely worth picking up.
