It looks like a good year in 2020 for QBs getting drafted early and often.

And that means some EXPENSIVE trades. People thinking we're gonna be able to trade up for some Franchise QB are living in fantasy world.

Yeah, I have no doubt the Colts win 7-9 games at least, so that would be a lot of drafts picks to give up in order to select a QB. Frankly, I’m not ecstatic about the 2020 crop.

The colts are catching a huge break with these QB injuries. The only real QB they play in weeks 8-14 is Watson.

hmmm, so I have had 5 of those QBs on my fantasy team thus far this season... maybe I should put Watson on there? :peek:

those are not career ending injuries

Yes/no.

 

For example, Brees is 40, if NO ends up with a top 10 pick, they're gonna be looking for his replacement.  Big Ben is getting up there in age as well, steelers look like they could be a top 5 pick, they're going to be looking for Ben's replacement, or at should. 

Its not that the injuries are career ending, its that some of these teams have QBs nearing the end of their careers regardless. Others, are dealing with injury prone QBs.

 

I'm just saying that the competition for the handful of decent QB prospects is gonna cause any asking prices for a trade to balloon in the next year or two.

Big Ben is having season ending surgery and Drew Brees is out until at least week ten or eleven. My guess is chad Kelly would not make it through waivers.

Add in the Jets Darnold our with Mono, and their backup has a broken ankle.  There #3 QB gets to play the Pats next weekend.. could QB #4 start the week after?

    • That's almost throwing away a player that has been a big part of the success we've had over the years, simply because he's underperforming in the first half of this season.  I'm not saying that maybe on a pure business decision level that might be a fair deal, but I think from both a PR and especially locker room impact perspective, that would be a horrible trade.     Good organizations simply don't do that to good employees.  You address it when the contract comes up in a few months.  JMO.
    • So hypothetically, of Packers offered us a 4th round pick tomorrow, you would accept it?   Will be a late 4th at that.     I mean don't get me wrong, sometimes there can be addition by subtraction(ie; OBJ). Where a QB doesn't feel pressure to target said WR and spreads ball around more. I am not sure I see the same thing with TY though.(only averaging 6 targets a game, which is a team high) l. I think that says more about how well we are already spreading the vall around.   For the record, I wouldn't accept a late 4th for Hilton. Would consider a 3rd, but that would really exasperate the lack of veteran leadership in the group.
    • I don't think the Packers are giving up a 4th rounder for a 30 year old WR on an expiring contract.    And going back to the crux of the matter, there's no reason for the Colts to bail on this season right now. 
    • I'll tell you what I told Superman. Hilton to the Packers for a 4th rounder. They are interested in Will Fuller, so we could trade them Hilton for a 4th.
    • Harris to PS during this week.  I figured he'd be retained instead of Fountain, but was wrong.  IMO, Harris will be called up before Fountain will though.  I think Harris just needs more reps on the PS whereas Fountain is kind of a known quantity at this point.
