2-QB Fantasy Football Stock Watch: Week 14

Colt McCoy

The fantasy playoffs are here. If you’ve made it this far, congratulations. Hopefully you can make it all the way to the championship round of your 2-QB league.

It’s been an interesting year for 2-QBers, and Week 13 was just a sampling of how much fun it can be to draft and play in 2-QB leagues. Take a look at the highest scoring fantasy quarterbacks for the week to see what I mean.

Of the Top-12 scorers, we have the heavyweights like Andrew Luck, Drew Brees, and Aaron Rodgers. But then we also see names like Ryan Fitzpatrick, Colt McCoy, Mark Sanchez, and Shaun Hill.

One of the appeals to playing in 2-QB leagues is that there is no one set way to draft. You can build your team a number of ways, be it QB/QB, studs and streaming, or even LRQB.

Every week brings you something different and is a reminder of how 2-QB leagues differ from standard start only one quarterback leagues. Now, onto my weekly quarterback rankings and stock watch report…

Week 14 Quarterbacks on the Rise

Colt McCoy

Colt McCoy‘s fantasy performance in Week 13 (26.88 fantasy points – QB5) was the second-highest scoring fantasy output by a Washington quarterback this year. Only Kirk Cousins in Week 3 scored more (27.58).

Washington might have gotten smoked by the Colts on Sunday, but McCoy just kept chucking the ball. His 47 pass attempts was the second-most he’s ever thrown in a game. Believe it or not, he once threw 61 in a game!

With three remaining games vs. STL, NYG, and PHI, there’s a good chance McCoy might be asked to keep throwing, which should see him rack up fantasy points again. That Week 16 matchup vs. Philly is one to keep an eye on.

Ryan Fitzpatrick

In his first game back as the starting quarterback of the Houston Texans, Ryan Fitzpatrick showed off his FitzMagic, throwing for 358 years and six touchdowns, on his way to 39.22 fantasy points. He finished the week as the fantasy QB1. There’s no better way to make a return to the NFL field than that.

Week 14 Quarterbacks on the Slide

Brian Hoyer

This section of the stock watch is usually reserved for players that had a bad game or lost their job. A 1:6 passing touchdown to interception ratio over his past four games qualifies Hoyer for the first part of the equation.

There’s no word yet as to who will start at quarterback for Cleveland in Week 14, but there’s a chance it might not be Hoyer. Either way, his stock isn’t on the rise, and things could get worse for him before they get better.

Tony Romo

Tony Romo‘s Thanksgiving couldn’t have gone any worse. He had what might have been his worst game of the season.

His 199 passing yards vs. Philadelphia was the second lowest of the season for Romo. And it was the first game of the year where he didn’t throw a touchdown. His 3.86 fantasy points were a season low, and saw him finish as the fantasy QB29.

For everyone’s sake, it can’t get any worse in Week 14. Hopefully.
