On Sunday the Los Angles Rams hosted the 10-2 Philadelphia Eagles who have been on a roll due mostly to the talented ass QB Carson Wentz. The Eagles found victory bringing them to 11-2 and clinched the NFC east with the dub. All of this is wonderful but the scariest thing imaginable also happened yesterday. Carson Wentz tore his ACL and is out for the remainder of the season.
For the Philly fans out there, I’m sorry but its not like you were going to win the Super Bowl anyway so the real issue here is where do Carson Wentz fantasy owners go now. For most leagues next week is the semi finals and before you start shitting your pants out of sheer fear we’d like to help you calm the fuck down and show you some good QB options out there that could lead you to victory in weeks 15 and 16.
“BORTLES COMBAT” sounds like a sweet two week team name to lead you to the ship and it just may do that. Ole Blake has been putting up some decent numbers in the past three weeks and has really connected with receivers DeDe Westbrook and Marquise Lee in the absence of Allen Hurns and Alan Robinson. Not to mention the Jaguars have the most FIRE defense in the league. The Jags will be facing the Houston Texans in week 15 who give up the 2nd most fantasy points to QB’s and travel to San Fransisco to take on the Niners in week 16 who are giving up the 4th most points to QB’s. Bortles is owned by 35% of fantasy managers in Yahoo leagues. If he’s on your waiver wire pick him up and “FINISH THEM”!
Despite his mediocre (or as he likes to think “Elite”) performances this past season, Joe has some favorable QB matchups throughout the remainder of the playoffs. With the winless Browns in week 15 giving up the 6th most points to QB’s and the Colts in week 16 for the Championship giving up the 9th most points to QB’s, what’s not to love? Now we all know that Alex Collins has really stolen the show but with Flacco’s increased targeting to Mike Wallace and Jeremy Maclin I think he’s about the best bet for Wentz owners this late in the season. Flacco has 14% ownership in Yahoo leagues.
Mitchell Trubisky (For The Bold Ones)
Now before you completely discredit my Fantasy Football knowledge hear me out. Mitchell hasn’t been anything spectacular this season in no way, shape, or form. However he is coming off of his best game of the season to a defense that gives up only the 22nd most points to QB’s. Call it the Bengals fluke or you can say that Mitchell is starting to get into rhythm with this “meh” Bears offense. Mitchell and The Bears will face the Detroit Lions in week 15. I don’t personally see Mitchell breaking 20 in this game due to them only giving up the 18th most points to QB’s but at the end of the day double digits should come. What I really like about this play is that the Bears play the Browns in week 16 and that’s when the sparks should fly. How amazing would it be if you could win your league with Mitchell Fuckin Trubisky!? Just rub that shit all in your opponents face. The Trub is owned by only 5% of fantasy players in Yahoo leagues and there’s really no surprise there.
We will all miss the excellence that was Carson Wentz this season but at the end of the day this is Fantasy Football and this shit happens. So go put on your big boy (or girl) pants and get ready for the showdown. One out of these three guys above could make all the difference!
