Keenum gets Week 7 start: Well, the Matt Schaub era seems like it’s coming to an end, which means its time for me to go QB shopping. Case Keenum finally gets his first taste of NFL action after playing college ball in as pass-happy of an offense as you’ll find. The good news is he can make all the throws that will be asked of him since he probably attempted all of them under Kevin Sumlin. The bad news? His first start comes against the Chiefs on the road. No big deal … only the most intimidating and productive defense in the league. Go get’em, kid! This would be like finding out that your son’s first little league at-bat will happen with Nolan Ryan on the mound. Only start Keenum if you’re truly desperate, and don’t be shocked if his uniform is very muddy when he steps off the Arrowhead field.
Foles gets another start: Remember when Chip Kelly said Nick Foles could earn himself another start by putting in an outstanding performance against Tampa Bay? He wasn’t kidding. Foles, who has yet to throw an interception this year, has been announced as Philly’s starter against the Cowboys this week. It’s certainly fun for a neutral observer to watch the Michael Vick vs. Nick Foles QB carousel here, but it has to be maddening for fantasy owners to keep tabs on this on almost a daily basis. Both of them can produce big stat lines. This sounds like it should be a slogan for a luxury car line, but unless you own them both, you really didn’t own either. Foles is going to be Kelly’s QB du jour, so if you’ve got him, give him a go. Dallas’ defense isn’t nearly as good as last week’s shutdown performance against Washington would have you believe.
Fitz should be a go tonight: The Cards will need a lot of help if they have plans to upset the Seahawks at home tonight, but the good news is Larry Fitzgerald, who had been limited in practice earlier in the week and almost sat out Week 6 with a hamstring ailment. is expected to play tonight. He’s listed as probable, and as good as the Seahawks pass defense may be, they are prone to conceding lengthy pass plays. Fitz only needs to break one long one to have a good fantasy night for most of you. I like his chances.
