Brady Quinn to start at quarterback for Chiefs: Fantasy implications

Peter Aiken

Brady Quinn has been the named the Chiefs' starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the Broncos. We break down the fantasy implications.

Brady Quinn will start at quarterback when the Kansas City Chiefs take on the Denver Broncos on Sunday, Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star reports. Head coach Romeo Crennel announced the news at his Wednesday press conference.

Quinn took over for Matt Cassel at halftime of last week's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Neither quarterback played particularly well. Quinn went 9-for-14 passing for 95 yards. Cassel went 8-for-16 for 83 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Quinn was the marginally better quarterback Sunday, and so he will be given the reins of the offense against the Broncos. There isn't much to like from a fantasy perspective, especially considering the fact that he has started and finished just one full game since the 2009 season.

Even in two-quarterback leagues, neither quarterback can be considered rosterable at the moment. Keep Quinn away from your starting lineup, especially going up against an excellent Broncos pass rush.
