    Fantasy help

    I have Vick as my starting QB but this is his bye week.

    So, would you start Tim Tebow or Carson Palmer this week? Neither great options but they are the only two options I have!

    Tebow. Palmer hasn't even practiced yet this year.

    Re: Fantasy help

    Tebow, when he has started, has been a pretty good fantasy quarterback because of his rushing ability.

    Re: Fantasy help

    For me, I would take a chance on Palmer as long as he starts. I dont quite believe in "Baby Jesus" yet.

    Tebow. Are they really going to let Palmer play this week? I wouldn't think he would be ready yet.

    Re: Fantasy help

    Tebow, i think he will actually score a lot of points. He's basically a running back, that will throw it 10-15 times.

    Re: Fantasy help

    I would recommend you get rid of both of them. There has got to be a Hassleback or another starter that you can pick up.

    You don't have to believe Tebow is the savior for Denver. But he will score fantasy points. The three games he started last year he was one of the top scoring QB's (maybe number one, not sure)

    Palmer may not even play this week.

    Hassleback has very limited upside.

    This is a no brainer for Fantasy: Tebow. He will score you fantasy points.

    60 rushing yards(which he could likely get) is equal to about 250 passing yards in most leagues.

    Yep. It's the same reason Cam Newton has been one of the highest scoring QBs this year even with all the picks he throws. He gets rushing yards and rushing TDs on on top of some passing yards and passing TDs.

    Re: Fantasy help

    Put me in the Tebow camp. I'm even thinking of putting him in this weekend and sitting Roethlisberger. Talk about an up and down fantasy QB....sheesh.


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Palmer is not expected to start in Week 7 against Kansas City, with Kyle Boller getting the nod.

    evansilva Evan Silva



    Sneaky Week 7 QB: #Colts Curtis Painter. Likely shootout. #Saints embarrassingly void of pass rush. Painter will have cleanest pocket yet.

    Yeah, they said that at first but ESPN reported yesterday that Palmer will probably start Sunday. I guess they figure a rusty Palmer is better than Kyle Boller.

    Re: Fantasy help

    Thought this was a gal fantasy thread. My bad.

    Who is replacing Jason Campbell? I would go with Palmer as they will get behind in the game and decide to throw. He may be worth picking up.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Tebow. He is a much better fantasy qb than a real Qb. He will be a nice bye week filler.
