START: Case Keenum, Minnesota Vikings
How scary was it from a fantasy football stand-point to see Teddy Bridgewater enter the game for the Minnesota Vikings last week?
I mean, we could all see the headlines, couldn’t we? ‘Bridgewater convinces Vikings in garbage time, Keenum benched.”
What a development it would have been. Alas, Keenum will be your starter against the Green Bay Packers, and he needs to be your starter for the fantasy football championship game.
In his last match-up against the Packers, he threw for 239-yards one pick and one score. Not great numbers, but not bad either.
Since then, he’s been above 70% completion in every game but two, and has no interceptions thrown in half those games. He also has multiple touchdown throws in every match but two. You’re in good hands, with Keenum.
SIT: Brett Hundley, Green Bay Packers
The Packers are officially out of the playoffs, which means they officially have no reason to risk Rodgers’ clavicle any further.
Enter Brett Hundley. May I take your coat Mr. Hundley? Thank you. Now, sit down and wait for the off-season.
Hundley shouldn’t even be owned by you if you’re in the fantasy football championships. If he is, then congratulations you overly dedicated Packers fan. You managed to homer your back-up quarterback to the final week while starting some other quarterback. Good job!
SLEEPER: Joe Flacco, Baltimore Ravens
Ok, in his defense, Brissett is playing on the same offense which has officially put Andrew Luck’s Hall of Fame career in jeopardy.
So, yes, Flacco is better than Brissett.
