    Looking for some advice as to who I should start at QB. Started Brees last week, but he's on bye this week and I'm unsure who to start. My options are Murray (vs. SF), Minshew (vs. HOU, London), and Cousins (@KC). Cousins is projected to get the least points but he's been the most volatile the past few weeks. Minshew usually does pretty well, but he's in London so that may throw him off his game. And as for Murray, I'm worried he won't do too hot vs the Niners D. What do y'all think? Who should I start?

    I'd personally go with Cousins in this scenario. I have Murray and Newton, I had considered dropping Newton for Carr but @iLLmatiC messed that all up this morning. I really do not want to start Murray this week but might have to. I'm not confident in dropping Newton for tannehill or Menshew.

    I’d go Minshew, personally. He’s only put up one dud and has had pretty stable numbers.

    Edit: he’s also going up against a Houston D that just lost Watt. Their D has given up a lot of fantasy points to WR this year.

    KC can be run on and we all know that’s what Minnesota wants to do. I think it will be a similar game to last week when they played Washington with Cook and Mattison running wild and Cousins had no TDs. Especially if Theilen is out again.

    I would love to say Kyler but with our lack of RBs it would not be wise to start him against SF.

    With that said, watch Kyler and Cousins go off and Minshew to get hurt. Gotta love fantasy, haha.

    Damn, three QBs on your roster... I would trade one for a any RB or even a water boy

    Mostly just have them so that other people can't. The rest of my roster is either fine or can't be salvaged by the waiver wire.

    I'd go with Minshew. Maybe everybody's game will be off, and that would be good for him.

    Not one single vote for a transcendent game-changing QB? :shrug:

    I avoid playing anyone on Thursday night football. The games are typically wretched and unpredictable. With fantasy football you are banking on predictability.

    Kamara was a beast last year.

    Against a good defense and no RB who knows the playbook? Barf.

    DYK that the average winning point total on TNF is 20? Hard to score a ton of fantasy points when your team, even in a win, only nets you 20 ish points.

    Gotta play it safe IMO. The Jags own England games and the Texans love to give up long TD passes.
