Brady Quinn 'could potentially impress' fantasy football owners in Week 6

Brady Quinn will start at quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 6, and he may have a chance to impress in fantasy football.

Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Brady Quinn is going to be the starter for the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 6 when they take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Matt Cassel, the team's usual starting quarterback, was knocked out with a concussion against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 5 and has officially been ruled out for Sunday by Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel.

Going against the Buccaneers may be good news for Quinn, giving him a potential chance to impress on the field and perhaps in the fantasy football realm as well. The Bucs have the most pass yards allowed per game in the league going into Week 6 and he has a couple of solid weapons in the passing game on his side as well.

That could make him a potential sleeper pick off waivers in your fantasy football league, and the job could remain his going later into the season if he can get into a rhythm.

Cassel could be available in Week 8, with the Chiefs getting a week off after the Bucs game. Quinn is currently trying to wrestle the starting position from Cassel. Following a tough start to the season, his seat is very hot.
