With the preseason winding down, that can mean only one thing – it’s almost time to get prepared for HypSports football. Though there are many strategies in setting the perfect lineup, I have always let my quarterbacks become my fantasy point go-getters. Just like in the NFL, it is hard to get the Aaron Rodgers of the league on your team; but this preseason has shed some light on a couple of new faces as well as some old sleepers.
Here are a couple quarterbacks that have shown major promise in the preseason and might be rather easy to snag into your HypSport lineups come Sept 5th.
Look Out for Cleveland…..Yeah, I Said It!
The Cleveland Browns had a rather successful draft this past offseason. Among other talent, the pick I was most impressed with is DeShone Kizer. The Rookie QB out of Norte Dame has potential to be a duel threat in Cleveland both through the air and rushing. With over 300 yds in the preseason, Kizer might be a great QB to take a chance on. Also, note that he is getting some key receivers back like Corey Coleman and Josh Gordon. Things can become rather interesting in Cleveland. The glory with HypSports is upgrading players. With the right owner, Kizer can become an every game point getter
Fly Eagles Fly
I have to admit I wasn’t really a believer in Carson Wentz last year, but I might be ready to eat crow. He was a fantasy upset last year never breaking 15 points in most leagues. This preseason Wentz had a 69% passer rating and looks impressive to me. The big reason I’d say to look at Wentz would have to be his receiving core. The Eagles signing of Alshon Jeffrey, who is a fantasy beast, will add to what I think might be a big year for Wentz.
Move Over Romo
After one heck of a Rookie season, Dak Prescott is now the man in Dallas, and rightfully so. Dak can offer so much to your HypSports lineup. He is equipped with top notch receivers, plays behind arguably the best offensive line in the game, and he can run the ball! What more do you need? Coming off a stellar 81% passer rating in the preseason, the only red flag might be that the Dallas Cowboys is a run first offense. However, if you are looking for a guy that will earn you some HypCash week in, week out – Dak is your man.
Quarterbacks can make or break your line up, and you should really take your time while analyzing them. I would never say pass on a Brady or Rodgers for your HypSports roster, but if you are looking for some great sleepers that can be easily be beasts in Season Showdown, I would recommend these three.
