Need a QB for Week 5. **WHIR**

Postby VickFan » Tue Oct 04, 2011 7:36 pm

I have Romo on a Bye week, and my backup's injured. 16 team league, so the waiver wire pickings are very slim. Who would you take for Week 5 out of these QB's?

Andy Dalton @ JAC
Tavaris Jackson @ NYG
Alex Smith vs TB
Curtis Painter vs KC
Blaine Gabbert vs CIN

Thanks. Leave a link I'll help with yours.
10 Team Standard League. (Record: 7-3)

QB - Cam, Palmer
WR - Welker, A. Johnson, S. Smith, P. Harvin, A. Brown
RB - Forte, Mendenhall, R. Matthews, Bush
TE - Finley
K - Kasay
DEF - NYJ

Painter or Dalton

I'd go with Painter, team played really hard on the Road...they want to get a win really badly and painter played very well considering the circumstances

*edit* plus of all those QB's he easily has the most weapons to throw to

*edit x2* and KC is terrible

Dalton would prob be my 1st choice but Smith is playing pretty good right now and might be the safre pick.

Yuck. That's not much to choose from... Alex Smith might be the only "safe" points, but you could gamble and just hope that either Dalton or Jackson have great weeks. Definitely not Gabbert.

I, personally, would just take Smith for this one week and hope for the best.

no love for painter? he had 17 pts against a good TB D with no interceptions

he gets to play KC's injury riddled defense which was mediocre before they lost Berry and a few others...and he's at home.

am I the only one who likes him this week

Bold Prediction: 18 points for Painter this week

id go with dalton. he had a good game against cleveland and led his team to a victory last week. the jaguars cant get to the quarterback, so he should have lots of time to throw.

help with mine? viewtopic.php?t=501661
