Quarterbacks to Target After the Jimmy Garoppolo Injury

Fantasy players are trying to find the best quarterbacks to target after the Jimmy Garoppolo injury. But as we all know, it’s slim pickings.

If Garoppolo tore his ACL in Week 2, you could have at least put in a claim for Ryan Fitzpatrick.

But he’s not available, and the waiver wire is lacking stud quarterbacks.

These are some of your options….

Streaming Quarterbacks to Replace Jimmy Garoppolo

Here are a few examples of how you can stream quarterbacks to replace Garoppolo.

In Week 4, Manning squares off against the New Orleans Saints. So far, the Saints have allowed an average of 34 points per game.

Ryan Fitzpatrick scored 42.3 Fantasy points against them in Week 1, and Matt Ryan is fresh off a 40.2-point performance.

In Week 5, Bortles and the Jacksonville Jaguars will play against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs can’t stop anything. The Los Angeles Chargers scored 28 points, the Pittsburgh Steelers scored 37 points, and the San Francisco 49ers scored 27 points against the Chiefs.

Sam Darnold has one of the better matchups for available quarterbacks in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens will host New Orleans in Week 7. In Week 8, Dalton will get to test his skills against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Mayfield gets Kansas City in Week 9 and Dalton gets another favorable matchup in Week 10 against New Orleans.

As you can see, you have to stay active. You’re going to have to put in some work each week to find the best matchups at the quarterback position.

But if you’re serious about winning your league, it will be worth it.
