Fantasy Football: Need a quarterback to help your team?

Bye weeks are starting to come up, so you might be in need of a quarterback for your fantasy football team.

Our fantasy football guru Mike Baldwin has got a few suggestions for you.

One is a very familiar name — Brandon Weeden.

It’s been an up-and-down year for the Edmond native and Oklahoma State alum. He was the opening-week starter for Cleveland, then he got hurt, then he got passed up by Brian Hoyer, then he had to return when Hoyer got hurt. Now, he’s helped lead the Browns to the top of the AFC North, where they’re tied for the lead.

Is Weeden a great fantasy football quarterback?

Baldwin wasn’t suggesting that.

But if you’ve got a quarterback who’s team is about to be off and you need some points, having Weeden on your fantasy team is better than taking a zero.

Baldwin’s got plenty more advice, so be sure to check out this Hudiburg Fantasy Football Update.
