He's been on my taxi squad most of the offseason and now one guy is trying to claim him off my squad and another wants to trade for him. But I'm thinking I'd rather hold onto him instead of a 6th RD claim or 5th RD trade proposal.

This is my first season in an SF league so forgive my ignorance but I would imagine in your 12 team SF dynasty league there are going to be teams that go all in with their FAAB on him this week.

I already had him in my SF leagues. His swag in college and through the process had me dive in on him early on during the draft process. Liked his tape, he obviously wasn't a top talent for a reason but there were things to like. But he has the swagger factor that can get a team to rally behind him.

I mean look at this specimen.

whoops, did not even see that. my bad. I stashed Minshew in all my superflex leagues, idk why there was just something about him that I liked (the stash probably) and the uncertainty of Foles.

Maybe we shouldn't over-react too much. The Chiefs had one of the worst defenses last year, and already had the game nearly in hand by the time Minshew took over.

I'm not saying he won't be awesome, just that there's reason for pessimism.

I'm also thinking it will take 100% given the lack of viable waiver wire QB's that are previously not owned and actually come available in 2QB formats over the course of a season. Maybe 2-3 opportunities like this max per season in a 2QB league.

Tough to answer, if JAX is getting boat raced every week for the next 9 weeks, why rush Foles back?

If they are competitive and win games, do you ride with Minshew or let Foles come back and take over? The contract would have me believe Foles would come back. :think:

That game could have been pretty close if Minshew had a TD drive or two instead of settling for FG's. Will be fun to watch if he can take another step forward.
