NFL Pools: Multiple Replacement Options

NFL Pools: Multiple Substitute Options


In this week when four teams including key players in “fantasy football” are on leave, several poolers find themselves with a nice puzzle. 

The QMI Agency, however, has solutions via waivers:

-Jimmy Garoppolo, quarterback (available in 61% of the Yahoo! leagues) 

No, 'Jimmy G' won't be as productive as Josh Allen or Jalen Hurts. However, it is a good temporary replacement option. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback will face the Chiefs this Sunday and the Kansas City team is sixth in points allowed to opposing center backs since the start of the NFL season.

-Wan'Dale Robinson, Wide Receiver (Available in 92% of Yahoo! Leagues)

The New York Giants' second-round pick in the last draft returned to the team's roster last week. Despite only being used on 23% of offensive plays, he found a way to shine with three catches for 37 yards and a touchdown. It wouldn't be surprising if head coach Brian Daboll would call his number more and more regularly in the coming weeks.

-Robbie Anderson, wide receiver (available in 87% of the Yahoo! )

Unhappy and at odds with his coaches at the Carolina Panthers, Robbie Anderson was traded to the Arizona Cardinals on Monday. They needed help after the loss of Marquise Brown. The newcomer will get several chances to showcase himself on Thursday night, when the New Orleans Saints are at University of Phoenix Stadium.

-Kenyan Drake, running back (available in 94% of Yahoo! leagues)

Kenyan Drake took advantage of J.K. Dobbins' injury to stand out in the Baltimore Ravens' backfield. Against the New York Giants, he had 119 yards and a major on just 10 carries. This performance will force the hand of his coaches, who should give him chances as long as Dobbins is a doubt.

-Brian Robinson Jr., running back (available in 35% of the Yahoo! ) 

The young man who was shot twice in the legs less than two months ago will play his third game of the season in the seventh week of activities. He's already established himself as the undisputed No. 1 carry for the Washington Commanders, which is a rare commodity in “fantasy football.”

-Robert Tonyan, tight end (Available in 57% Yahoo! Leagues) 

The Green Bay Packers representative had a very disappointing 2021 season, after being spectacular in 2020. It seems that the quarterback's lack of pass receiver productivity- fullback Aaron Rodgers forces him to rely on Robert Tonyan again. Last week, the tight end was targeted 12 times. He caught 10 relays for gains of 90 yards.
