Anybody in favor of team quarterbacks would likely get a lot of support from fantasy enthusiasts who started Packers QB Aaron Rodgers in Week 14.
Matt Flynn is in the game … there goes the season.
Like our own Dave Dameshek, whose Kool Kats (that’s two Ks) are done for the year unless Rashard Mendenhall and Ray Rice can rally around an injury to Dave’s fantasy quarterback.
But the question is out there now, would you support the notion of team quarterbacks?
“I never did, but I do right now,” Dameshek quipped. While he might have said it in jest in the immediate aftermath of Rodgers’ injury, Dameshek did come around to embrace the notion after a moment of reflection. And it’s understandable, considering that the best player in fantasy football is hurt in arguably the biggest weekend of the year.
I just don’t think that you could do it. Because if it you start allowing team quarterbacks, what is to stop you from enacting team running backs? Team receivers? Or even team defense?
But injuries are a part of fantasy football. And while it’s a huge blow to see your fantasy quarterback go down, you get a glimpse into what life is like for Packers coach Mike McCarthy right now.
Besides, if you start grouping these players together, you are just one step away from rooting for an entire team on Sunday. Could you imagine that? Rooting for one team instead of a bunch of individual players? That would be insanity.
