Good news to those of you who lost last night with Titans QB Vince Young — you are not alone. Our own Micheal Fabiano was just lamenting in our Fantasy LIVE production meeting that Young killed him in his fantasy league.
And not to rub it in, but Young was really heading for a huge game after blowing through the Jaguars’ defense early on.
Young figures to play this week, and he said that he could have gone back into the game. Not that any of that helps with last night’s game.
Young also hurt the value of WR Kenny Britt, who had a touchdown early but seemingly disappeared when Kerry Collins went into the game. Which was frustrating to my pal, Vincent in Venice who was playing Britt over 49ers WR Michael Crabtree. But Britt figures to continue to be a strong play going forward.
The one question I would like to throw out to all of your fantasy enthusiasts. In light of what happened to Young — great matchup against the Jaguars’ lousy defense. Do we need to start playing team quarterbacks? Where you get the fantasy point of any quarterback playing for your team. In this case, you would have received all of the point of Young and Collins last night.
I scoffed at the notion when I first heard about it years ago when Orange County register football columnist Michael Lev started doing it in our league. I still believe teams QBs are a better idea than say, fractional points. But after losing Lions QB Matthew Stafford and Eagles QB Michael Vick in games this year, my stance could change. I am not there yet, but I would love to hear how you guys (and gals) do it.
