Ask the Expert Question for the week: Several quarterback changes either will or could be coming soon, due to week 1 injuries/struggles. Which backup passer, if any, do you believe will help fantasy teams this season?
OK the ER room is full with Matt Moore, Kevin Kolb and Matt Stafford and the strugglers include Alex Smith and Trent Edwards. The easy pick is Mike Vick who looked good in relief and would have a bevy of quality pass catchers. The rub is that Eagle head coach Andy Reid says Kolb is the starter if healthy (Kolb will not attempt practicing until Friday). Realistically, Stafford may miss 4 weeks so Shaun Hill has some value for a month, but the others will have a long leash.
