The Broncos will go with QB Tim Tebow, meaning that the Raiders defense will become an excellent play against their AFC West rival. This also means that you will want to bench WR Brandon Lloyd, which could be viewed as a good thing considering he has struggled in recent weeks.
Obviously, QB Kyle Orton has been benched. Hopefully you have been prepared for weeks now with a guy like Bucs QB Josh Freeman, Cowboys QB Jon Kitna or Jags QB David Garrard.
The key pickup right now is the Raiders defense. If you are able to choose between the Raiders and the Cowboys, go with Oakland. At least Redskins QB Rex Grossman has some game experience.
One player that could be a huge benefactor of Tebow’s start could be RB Darren McFadden, as the Raiders will likely be on the field a lot. RB Michael Bush also becomes somebody that should be considered for a flex spot.
The Patriots defense is also a good start, although probably not available. The Packers are going with QB Matt Flynn because of Aaron Rodgers‘ concussion. WR Greg Jennings also becomes a concern, but you would have to be pretty stacked at receiver to consider sitting him.
