BQBL 2016-17: Week 5

This week in BQBL, we get to watch a bunch of backups be a bunch of backups while the starters get concussions, Ryan Tannehill is who we all know he is (that is generically bad so that everyone forgets him), and Houston has begun wonder why they spent money to get a quarterback everyone knew was crap.

This Week’s Top 3:

3. Ryan Tannehill – Miami Dolphins: 86 points

Two picks, 6 sacks, no TDs. Just another walk in walk in the park for the soon to be practice squader. To be honest.


2. Brock Osweiler – Houston Texans: 88 points

Brock managed to avoid the big points gainers this week. But was still terrible enough to be barely better than 2015-2016 Nick Foles.


1. Blaine Gabbert – San Francisco 49ers: 116 points

Along with the normal barely better than Nick Foles points, Blaine Gabbert had a fairly spectacular safety for all the free points. Went well with his 7 sacks. General theme seemed to be he might be holding onto the ball a tad long.

If you didn’t notice, Rean had all the top 3 this week so I'm not going to talk about this.

A strong week Blaine Gabbert puts him in a tie with Ryan Fitzpatrick for the seasonal points total. Otherwise not much change in the top 10. Some movement within the top 5 as Case Keenum passes by a legit good performance of Jameis Winston.

What to Watch in Week 6:

Los Angeles Rams vs. Detroit Lions

It’s hard to pass up watching the Case Keenum train crash week in and week out. And this week it’s against the Lions, who I’m still waiting to be outright bad instead of NFL generic.


Indianapolis Colts vs. Houston Texans




New York Jets vs. Arizona Cardinals

I like to put in the big primetime games into can’t miss BQBL games, and it feels like this year has had an abundance of them. The NFL has taken quite a bit of flack the past few weeks for poor ratings. Maybe they shouldn’t promote a league where every team is crap or New England (Guess which one of these Dallas is). Ok, back on track. This primetime game with Pickspatrick and either Carson Palmer coming off a concussion or the ever wondrous Drew Stanton. I feel like I should remind people of this game from 2013 between these two teams. Everyone should read that Pulitzer Prize winning piece of work in hope that this game could beat that one. Did I mention this was a Monday Night game?
