Q&A

Posted: December 23, 2010 in Fantasy Football

Fantasy X-Man,

How high do you rank Tebow among QBs if he starts the last two games of the season? And where would you project him getting drafted next season? -Tim, Utah

Tim,

Let me answer your second question first. If the Broncos intend to start him, then he should be taken between the #15 and #20 QB off the board. If they are sticking with Orton, then he shouldn’t be drafted in shallow leagues, and only as a handcuff to Orton in deeper leagues. As far as the rest of this year, the Broncos have a fantastic matchup against Houston, then a scary one against San Diego. I’d place him around #15 of QBs for the Houston game. But he shouldn’t be starting, unless you are desperate week 17 against the Chargers, and if you are in the championship game week 17, you have better options.

Fantasy X-Man,

We’ve seen Shonn Greene go from a second round pick in most drafts, to a complete backup in New York. Will that continue next season? Or will he be the guy? Frank, Pittsburgh

Frank,

I’d expect it to start out 50/50, and lean more towards Greene as the season wears on. Perhaps 60/40 by week 10 and 70/30 in fantasy playoffs. I wouldn’t draft him before the fourth round, but that’s an early projection.

Fantasy X-Man,

I’m in the championship game this week, and I’m worried about my TE slot with Gates out. Is there a viable backup that might not be owned? James, Wisconsin

James,

I know your pain. Look for Kevin Boss. Manning is looking his way more and more. Brent Celek might still be a free agent and has performed since getting healthy. Owen Daniels might also be out there, depending on your league. If its a deeper league, Brandon Pettigrew is a guy who might get you some touchdowns, and Visanthe Shiancoe is a big target in the red zone.

Thanks for the questions. Keep em coming. And stay posted this week for Snakes and Ladders, more Q&A and finally my end-of-season rankings.
