What other 2nd string QBs look likely to take over the starting job by week 4?
(Backgroud: I'm asking because all of the starting QBs are taken in my league. We're in a 2QB league, and I only drafted 2QB's. My first QB bye is week 4, and trade options look pretty dim. This might be better in the waiver board, but thought "Leftovers" was pretty appropriate too.)
Smith is a huge question mark, you really don't want to screw around with the rookie so unless he is a major screwup then Flacco will stay in the roll.
I don't see any guys who will lose their jobs that early, Anderson has earned a little rope, Ryan is like Flacco. Miami doesn't have anyone better then Pennington. Ditto for Croyle in KC.
Your best bet is to monitor injuries. Guys like Hasselbeck and Manning might miss some time. MAybe grab Leinart in case Warner goes down.
