Who is the top backup QB in the NFL?

Recommended Posts

from a fantasy perspective, if an opening day starter gets injured etc...what backup would have the most fantasy potential?

 

thanks,

Brad Johnson, Billy Volek, Kelly Holcombe, Jamie Martin, Doug Flutie, and a sleeper maybe Seneca Wallace.

 

 

In that order...

I would throw Kitna in after Volek in that list. I like McMahon in Philly also but not as much as even Flutie at this point.

Brad Johnson has zero arm strength and his better days are over. He's been in the league a long time and looked pretty bad the last few years in Tampa. I think the top back-up is Volek, followed by Kitna and Rivers.

When will the Mike Vick experiment end?

Its like Barry Sanders playing QB

in that order, but with a huge dropoff after Holcombe

You obviously aren't from CLE or you would have said before and not after ... also I would at least mention Garrard.

 

I still vote Volek the best though.

Volek and Kitna are proven starters, if you want a deep sleeper, cuz it ain't gonna happen, I bet Craig Nall would light it up with GB. Not that I'd carry him on my roster, but if Favre got hurt, I'd run to the waiver wire for Nall.

Just hope they're not negative pts. :D

Yup.

 

I would go with Volek, Kitna, Schaub & Martin, in that order. Sleepers would be Todd Collins & Jim Sorgi.
