I’m in a must win game before the playoffs, I have Brees in a tough match up. Should I start Kyler Murray or grab a stream like Fitzmagic instead? My opponent has Garopollo, so that is something to consider.
Welcome @Krawdaddy! Here is how my QB model has them projected to be ranked for the next three weeks since you may have to make roster decisions based on the duration of the playoffs:
Brees - QB31, 24, 18 (very tough remaining schedule)
Murray - QB20, 10, 11
Fitzmagic - QB8, 4, 4
Personally I would pick up Fitz and plan to play him all three weeks, and hang onto Murray as a backup option if possible. I know I’m lower on Brees than most, so take it FWIW, but Brees has not shown much ability this year to overcome a tough matchup, so I would avoid him personally.
My Week 14 QB model is below for reference. Hope that helps. Good luck!
