Quarterback Bye Week Fill-Ins
Kirk Cousins: This would seem to be a no-brainer in any league or format. But he is still available in 50.4% of leagues! Cousins would be a good investment even if you don’t need him for this week just to keep him out of someone elses starting lineup. In addition, there is the fact that he threw for 677 yards and five TD’s in less than 2 games and could help you down the road.
Eli Manning: Much has been made of the younger Manning’s struggles over the past year. But he has thrown for over 500 yards and 4 TDs the last two weeks. Victor Cruz also is back on track as he had his 100+ yards and a touchdown for the first time since week five of last year. The Giants are also playing Washington who got shredded by Philadelphia last week. Manning is available in 61.8% of leagues.
