In fact, GM Billy Devaney told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch the report “utterly ridiculous.”
In the event that McNabb is traded — the Bills and the Raiders are rumored to be two of his top suitors — it would instantly make Kevin Kolb a viable sleeper in fantasy football.
He showed flashes of potential last season, throwing for a combined 718 yards and four touchdowns in two starts with McNabb on the sidelines.
Fantasy owners should take those numbers with a grain of salt, though.
In his first start, Kolb threw the football 51 times in an attempt to erase a large deficit against the Saints. His second start came against the Chiefs, who finished 2009 ranked 22nd in pass defense.
Still, starting in the pass-happy offense of coach Andy Reid is enough to improve the stock of most quarterbacks.
Kolb would also have a tremendous core of weapons around him, including running back LeSean McCoy, receivers DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin, as well as tight end Brent Celek, not to mention a favorable FPA rating.
Whatever the scenario, this is a situation that could have a major domino effect in fantasy football.
