The inestimable Fantasy Douche recently noted that Brian Quick was on a 1200/12 pace to start the season and is available in the 11th round. Given that Quick is expected to both fully recover and play in pre-season games, this is likely your last chance to acquire Quick in dynasty formats with an injury discount.
The pro-Quick argument argument has been laid out in detail already: Quick should have the best quarterback play he’s had so far in his career, and with Nick Foles recently signed to a two year extension (and apparently looking sharp), some security in that department. Quick has an excellent draft profile and is everything you’re looking for in a late round redraft pick. The only thing that’s been missing to date is a look at Quick’s projections for next year. Utilizing similarity scores, Quick’s projections are respectable, though not mindblowing:
However, if you throw out week 8, where Quick played less than a half before suffering a season-ending injury, Quick’s numbers jump dramatically:
Finally, it’s worth mentioning that Quick is in a contract year. This is dynasty interesting more than re-draft interesting (I don’t personally believe that players play better in contract years, something Football Outsiders studied), as Quick could potentially move to a more offensive-minded team next offseason.
Currently, Quick’s dynasty ADP value is 15. In dynasty, I prefer Quick over the following players who are near that value: Darren McFadden, Josh Hill, Percy Harvin (14), Rashad Jennings (15), Pierre Garcon, Derek Carr (16), Kenny Stills, Victor Cruz (19)
The bottom line is, strike quickly 1 before Quick’s value has a chance to rise in pre-season action.
