Ask the Expert Question: Another week, another slew of quarterbacks lost to injury. Which new or likely new quarterback starter will have the most fantasy value the rest of the way?
Another week, another slew of quarterbacks lost to injury. Which new or likely new quarterback starter will have the most fantasy value the rest of the way?
Matt Leinart, HOU, who is not a rookie, just a top draft pick who lost his way and gets a second chance.
He has the best RB in the NFL in Arian Foster (possibly two with Ben Tate). Andre Johnson should make his return from injury this week to join forces with TE Owen Daniels and did I mention a great defense and favorable schedule (well other than ATL and CIN, so 4 of 6 games). Look for 200 yards passing, 1 TD pass and one INT on average.
