Every week, Staff Writer Aaron Kagan looks at one or two QBs that you should definitely start and one or two QBs you should definitely sit along with a widely available waiver-wire QB for those who are desperate.
Kirk Cousins v. Detroit Lions
The Detroit Lions secondary has simply been shredded the past couple of weeks, as well as the entire season. The loss of Quandree Diggs has definitely been felt by this defensive unit, which is giving up one of the highest yardage totals to quarterbacks this season. This is a golden opportunity for Kirk Cousins against a divisional opponent that is struggling at the moment. Cousins is trying to lead his team to the playoffs and beyond, in which this will be a large step in the right direction if you can play good football. start him if you are able to this week.
Jameis Winston v. Indianapolis Colts
While having great stats this season, the negatives of Jameis Winston‘s game are turnovers and sacks. This will definitely show itself in a matchup against a very strong defense. Whether it be throwing an interception or losing a fumble because of a sack, this Indianapolis Colts defense will make it a long day for Jameis Winston. It is advised that you sit him if you have another option available to get your playoff run on the right foot.
Waiver wire target:
David Blough, Detroit Lions
Matthew Stafford is out again this week, so if you need an emergency start at quarterback you can look to David Blough to fill that void at least for this week. It may not be a long-term answer for dynasty purposes, but he may be able to pull you through the first round of the playoffs.
