With the playoffs right around the corner, this isn’t the best time to lose one of your quarterbacks. That’s the position some fantasy football executives are finding themselves in after injuries to Lamar Jackson and Jimmy Garoppolo on Sunday.
Garoppolo, on the other hand, does done for the season after breaking his left foot.
It’s impossible to find an equivalent value to Jackson’s on the waiver at this point in the season. In Superflex leagues, this applies to Jackson and Garoppolo because the selection is even smaller.
Jared Goff, who is in 50 percent of Yahoo Sports leagues, could be a worthwhile target in standard leagues after shredding the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Detroit Lions’ 40-14 win. He finished 31 of 41 for 340 yards and two touchdowns and has now made four straight starts without throwing an interception.
The Minnesota Vikings, Detroit’s opponents in Week 14, weren’t elite at stopping the pass this year.
Daniel Jones plays in 59 percent of Yahoo’s leagues, but the New York Giants are up against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles concede the second lowest passing yards per game (178.5) and rank first in opposing passing yards (73.6).
With Jones coming into week 14, you’d have to hope he could rack up some rushing numbers to fill out his fantasy output.
The Tennessee Titans play the Jaguars next week, so Ryan Tannehill could be a good streaming option. The Jaguars pass 255.5 yards through the air per game and have conceded 19 touchdowns.
Tannehill is in just 17 percent of Yahoo’s leagues and could be a target for owners in Standard and Superflex leagues alike.
If you happen to play in a Superflex league, you will probably try to identify the best worst result.
Considering Zach Wilson’s poor performance, Mike White did little to justify losing the starting job after playing 31-of-57 for 369 yards and two interceptions in a 27-22 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. White seems to have that full support also by his teammates from the New York Jets.
Should White win the Week 14 bid against the Buffalo Bills, he’s a high-risk, high-reward target. His cover is better than that of Tannehill or Pittsburgh Steelers’ Kenny Pickett, who finished 16 of 28 for 197 yards and a touchdown in a 19-16 win over the Atlanta Falcons.
