The quarterback position is one of the most important spots on any fantasy football team. With Drew Brees on a bye this weekend, many owners are scrambling to find a starter that can produce close to the level of Brees. Here is a list of three players you need to start this weekend.
Start: Jay Cutler
Cutler has been one of those quarterbacks that, going into every fantasy football season, managers believed “this would be his year!” The 2013 fantasy football season may finally be that season for Cutler and his owners. This weekend, the Chicago Bears are taking on the Washington Redskins. Cutler has put up some good fantasy numbers against good defenses such as the Cincinnati Bengals. With offensive weapons like Brandon Marshall and up-and-coming receiver Alshon Jeffery, Cutler should continue his upward trend and have a good start for you in Week 7.
Start: Philip Rivers
Where the heck has this Rivers been the last couple seasons? Besides last week’s performance against the Indianapolis Colts, Rivers has thrown for 400 yards in his previous two games with a total of five touchdowns. In Week 7, the San Diego Chargers will take on the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars. Look for Rivers to continue his upward trend and put up nice numbers against the basement team of the NFL.
Start: Nick Foles
Foles is starting to show everyone that he can be a starting quarterback in the NFL. In his last two games, Foles has thrown for five touchdowns. Michael Vick will be out again in Week 7 and Foles will try to continue his upward trend in the fantasy football world. This week, the Philadelphia Eagles will take on the Dallas Cowboys. To keep up with this high-flying Cowboys’ offense, the Eagles and Foles will have to put up the numbers threw the air. Look for Foles to have a big game and make the quarterback controversy a little heavier in Philadelphia next week.
