Need bye week QB. Hoping to get Driskel vs. Washington. If someone grabs him, which one of the following would you prefer?

Tannehill vs. Jax
Foles @Ten
Darnold vs. Oak

Going against one of the top teams, though with 3 of his top players on bye this week the expectations will be modest.

Darnold
Driskel
Foles
Tannehill

EDIT: I changed my mind after noticing the rushing stats.

I was up 6 with Kelce and KC D vs. Mahomes and Hunter Henry. 1/2 PPR, 1pt/15yds passing. I was thinking there was no realistic chance outside of a Mahomes injury.

Well the game flow was so odd that I was leading into the 4th quarter. Rivers threw a wobbler that Matthieu dropped outright, costing me 2 points, and led to a 2-pt conversion for Henry. KC gets the ball, Mahomes gets some rush yards but not enough for my opponent. Punt to LAC, who have a 4th down and no timeouts. Well, Rivers completes to Henry for the 1st down which made it where I was losing by 1 point. My only hope was some kind of defensive play (or an unlikely series of events in OT). Thank you Philip Rivers and KC!

No stat corrections please. I owe the fantasy gods on this one.

So you like Darnold better than Driskel then, or did you change your mind after putting Darnold first?

I originally had Driskel 4th before moving him up to 2nd because I wasn't aware of how much he was actually rushing the ball. I still like Darnold vs OAK most of those yuck options

Fantasypros also has Darnold over Driskel but not by much. I know that Raiders have been vulnerable against the pass for a good part of the season but they have been tougher as of late, and mobile QBs have a higher floor, but Darnold has more experience so that helps. Will give it some thought, put in claims for both guys, decide which one gets priority tonight, though I'm near the bottom of the waiver food chain so in the end I might not have a choice.

I have a coin flip at QB this week. Thurs night road QB makes me a little leery of starting Brissett. Maybe I shouldn't be concerned since Jackson did just light HOU up. My alternative is Darnold home v OAK.

I would still lean Brissett - Darnold has been inconsistent all season and Raiders D has been playing better as of late. If Hilton and/or Funchess return I would definitely play him, but it's more of a tossup if they don't.

Does Ballage have any value now that he is the starting RB?

Gross.

If you have a large league, maybe. I'd rather start a number of backups.
