Should We Be Starting Nick Foles And Case Keenum Next Week?

Nick Foles and Case Keenum were very impressive performers on Sunday. Can they deliver more fantasy heroics going forward? Scott Engel and Adam Ronis have the answers.

The RotoExperts are on Sirius/XM Fantasy Sports Radio (Sirius 210, XM 87) weekdays from 6 to 11 a.m. ET, Saturdays from 7 to 10 a.m. ET and Sundays from 7 to 9 a.m. ET.

    If wade Phillips is coaching, forget about it.

    APizz1e’s comment doesn’t make any sense. Obviously, Phillips will have zero involvement in the offensive game plan. I do think that the Texans were a different team in the first half with Kubiak calling the plays than they were under Rick Dennison’s guidance in the second. It’s possible that this could have an impact on Keenum’s numbers, but it’s also possible that a surprise like your head coach having a stroke at halftime had an effect on Dennison and that he couldn’t have been prepared for that turn of events. Arizona has certainly played tough against QBs so far this year, but so have Kansas City and Indianapolis. If you have Foles and Keenum on your roster I think it’s literally a wash between the two. Foles is not going to maintain the 7 TD performance level against GB and Chip Kelley may abandon the passing game in the second half. That’s not to say that Foles isn’t going to perform because I think he’ll be a top ten QB through the next 8 games, but I think the deck is stacked a little more in Keenum’s favor this week. With Arian Foster likely out and Ben Tate nursing broken ribs – Keenum and Andre Johnson ARE the Texans offense. It can always go either way and Fantasy Football always boils down to absolute luck, but I think the smartest bet for week 9 between Foles and Keenum is Keenum.
