Joshua Dobbs, Minnesota Vikings (Listed in 47.4% of leagues on ESPN)
Dobbs threw four interceptions in Week 12 on Monday Night Football.
- The combination of poor play and questions about his status as the team’s starting quarterback and the Vikings’ Week 13 bye led to several fantasy managers dropping him.
- While Dobbs had one bad performance, he has been among the top 12 quarterbacks in each of the past four weeks.
- Assuming he keeps his job, he will now benefit from throwing Justin Jefferson for the first time.
- The Vikings have the best quarterback schedule the rest of the season, according to PFF Power of schedule tool.
- If the Vikings announce a new quarterback, e.g Nick Mullinsit’s also worth adding a waiver wire due to Vikings’ schedule and supporting cast.
Matthew Stafford, Los Angeles Rams (32.1%)
Stafford completed 22 of 37 pass attempts against Cleveland Browns For 279 yards and three touchdowns.
- Stafford has consistently finished outside the top 12 fantasy quarterbacks but has been a touchdown throwing machine over the past two weeks.
- Overall, the Rams don’t have a good quarterback schedule over the last four weeks of the fantasy season, with the obvious exception in Week 15 when they face Washington leaders.
- Washington has allowed the most fantasy points to two quarterbacks this season.
- If you have a shaky quarterback situation, it pays to stash Stafford a week early to take advantage of that dominant matchup.
James Winston, New Orleans Saints (0.3%)
Winston took over Derek Carr When he suffered a head injury in Week 13. He also suffers from shoulder and back injuries.
- It wouldn’t be surprising if this leads to Carr being sidelined next week.
- Winston didn’t see many opportunities in this game, completing two of five passes for 41 yards.
- He scored the third-most fantasy points in 2019 in his final full season as a starter. He finished 15th in the first three matches last season.
- The Saints have the fifth-best schedule for quarterbacks through the rest of the season, according to PFF Power of schedule tool.
- They face Carolina Panthers, New York Giants, Los Angeles Rams And Tampa Bay Buccaneers To conclude the season
- The games get better as the season progresses. Winston’s fantasy value would be much higher if Carr had to miss multiple games.
Gardner Minshew, Indianapolis Colts (10.4%)
Minshew threw for 312 yards and two touchdowns in the Colts’ overtime win vs Tennessee Titans.
- The Colts were down by 10 points at one point, forcing them to rely on the passing game.
- Loss Jonathan Taylor It could also affect the game plan to pass more often.
- Minshew finished most weeks as a top-20 fantasy quarterback but rarely a top-12 pick.
- The Colts have the second-best schedule for quarterbacks the rest of the season, according to PFF Power of schedule tool.
