Yesterday we covered four quarterbacks who are arguably the “high end platoon” options. Now, assume you are drafting and they are all gone – who are you taking from this lengthy field of nine competitors? With the nine options, the probability of getting all polls correct sky-rockets (goes up 9-fold of course) – yesterday, the odds of getting all correct (randomly guessing) was 1 in 764,411,904; today it is 1 in 6,879,707,136, or almost 1 in 7 billion.
As one of 13 teams to have never hoisted the Lombardi Trophy, and one of four to have never reached a Super Bowl, the Detroit Lions went out and bought a Lombardi. Joe Lombardi, that is, grandson of the late Vince Lombardi, the trophy’s namesake. New head coach Jim Caldwell also brought in Teryl Austin, formerly defensive backs coach in Baltimore, to take over as defensive coordinator. All three coaches have Super Bowl experience, something the Lions don’t. Can the Lions get it done? Bryan Sweet breaks down the Lions!
For the sake of argument, let’s just say there are 12 locked in fantasy starters at QB: 1. Peyton Manning, 2. Aaron Rodgers, 3. Drew Brees, 4. Andrew Luck. 5. Matthew Stafford, 6. Nick Foles, 7. CamNewton, 8. RG3, 9. Matt Ryan, 10. Colin Kapenernick, 11. Tom Brady and 12. Russell Wilson. These next four are arguably what’s left if you decide you want to add a high-end platoon QB2 to your roster on draft day. Who you taking?
