Quarterback By Waiver Wire (QBBWW): Week 15
What might be lost in all the chatter dedicated to who, exactly, should be the Bears’ starting quarterback is this: Josh McCown – or perhaps more specifically, Marc Trestman – saved an untold number of fantasy seasons on Monday Night Football.
McCown was Week 14’s No. 1 fantasy signal caller, dropping a big old 348 yards, four passing touchdowns and a rushing score on a Dallas defense that really shouldn’t be called a defense.
In case I’ve never explicitly said so in this QBBWW space, I do everything I can to put my fantasy money where my mouth is. My faith in Marc Trestman’s system is real. His fantasy-friendly offensive scheme has had its hooks in me for going on six months now, and I’ve reaped the benefits. I hope you have too.
Awful secondaries have truly made themselves known to fantasy owners as we enter the second week of the fake football playoffs. 4for4’s schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed and Team Matchups Stats chart have been a trusty guide through the QBBWW wilderness, growing more reliable with every passing week.
My QBBWW selections, through 14 weeks, have scored an average of 17.5 fantasy points per game, or QB7 numbers. Optimal QBBWW plays have averaged 22.7 points, or QB2 numbers.
