Brady Quinn does nothing to merit fantasy consideration

Brady Quinn is still bad at football. We break down the fantasy implications.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Brady Quinn got his first start in three seasons, and it went about as well as you'd expect. Against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Quinn completed 22 of 38 passes for just 180 yards, zero TDs and two interceptions, for a robust 48.1 QB Rating.

To Quinn's credit, the two picks were extremely fluky, but they still happened, and one of them was run back 78 yards by Ronde Barber for a score as the Bucs rolled 38-10.

Fantasy Impact: Oof. I guess there's a reason Quinn hasn't played since 2009. Chiefs fans have been clamoring for the end of the Matt Cassel era, but if even Quinn isn't an upgrade, they are in serious trouble.

The Chiefs get a bye in Week 7 as they desperately try to salvage the season. Don't be surprised if they make a few phone calls to free agent QBs over the bye week.
