QB injuries through 6 weeks
- 31% of the starting QBs have missed time (10/32)
- 16% have missed over 25% of games (5/32)
- 6% have suffered season-ending injuries
- 47% of the QBs have NOT suffered an injury yet
Several of the injuries have yet to cost a player time, but will soon (T Lawrence, R Tannehill).
Other injuries should have caused the player to sit but they pushed through & their performance struggled as a result (D Carr, K Pickett)
The top 7 QBs drafted in fantasy have all been elite & stayed healthy with the exception of 2. Fields & his thumb. Burrow & his calf. All are currently in the top 10 except Burrow (22).
Maybe ‘reaching’ for an elite QB has its perks.
Tua has not only been able to stay healthy, but has been elite (QB3 currently).
3 non-dual threat QBs have been elite: Jared Goff (5), Kirk Cousins (8), and Brock Purdy (10).
No QB drafted after ADP of QB19 is currently in the top 10.
