I need a new QB, Goff has to go. Should i start Driskel against the Redskins this week, or Carr against the Jets? Driskel has some running upside, and Carr hasn’t thrown for 300 yards yet; however, it is the Jets. Thanks everyone.
Send in the Carr.
My QB model has Driskel projected to be the QB5 and Carr to be the QB13 this week. However, the sample size is small for Driskel (two games), so he is a riskier play and likely to have higher variance. In this case I would also look at the Baller’s rankings, and they have Carr projected to be the QB11 and Driskel to be the QB17. Unless you have a strong personal preference for Jeff “Just one big score!” Driskel, I would go against my model and roll with Carr. My QB model is below for reference. Good luck!
