Our Big Guy, Ron Rigney, informs you who to BUY for those BYE weeks in your draft! Ron Rigney tells you the quarterbacks to draft to replace your QB1 when he’s on a bye week! Follow him @therealmaday!
This week, we look at the quarterbacks who on byes during Weeks 9-12.
Week 9 teams on bye: Cardinals, Bengals, Colts, Jaguars, Giants, Eagles
Top 12 QB’s on bye: Luck, Wentz
Top bye week options: Goff, Winston, Ryan, Mahomes, Cleveland’s starter (Taylor or Mayfield)
Spotlight: Patrick Mahomes @ Browns
This game has a lot of potential to be fantasy gold. We all know Mahomes has an excellent arsenal of weapons and has a hand cannon that rivals Uncle Rico’s. He also draws a defense that will be improved but will still struggle a bit in the secondary. Cleveland allowed 230 ypg in 2017 and allowed opposing QB’s to have the highest rating in the league at 102.2. Denzel Ward will be a nice addition at corner, but let’s not forget he is a rookie, and a bit undersized at the position. I especially like this matchup if Sammy Watkins can get matched up on Ward. The Kansas City secondary shapes up to be poor as well, which could make this a shootout. Both QB’s are options if you’re missing Luck or Wentz.
