After a solid performance on Tuesday night, fantasy owners needing a QB can look to Ryan Tannehill
Only one quarterback threw for four touchdowns in Week 5: Justin Herbert. He's only owned in about half of Yahoo! leagues, but with the bye weeks approaching, that should go up. Not for Week 6 — the Chargers are on a bye — but keep Herbert on your fantasy radar. His schedule is great after the bye week and in the past two games, he has seven touchdowns and one interception. If you have bench space, grab him now while he'll be cheaper because he's not playing in Week 6.
Ryan Tannehill also scored four touchdowns in Week 5 (three passing, one rushing). The Titans do have a short week as they will play on Sunday after playing on Tuesday, but Tannehill has a decent matchup in Week 6 against the Houston Texans. While it's not clear that he will play as well as he did in Week 5, he's worth considering for fantasy owners that need a quarterback because of those on bye (Russell Wilson and Drew Brees owners, for example). Tannehill is available in nearly 80 percent of leagues and is ranked No. 16 for Week 6.
Teams on bye: Las Vegas, Los Angeles Chargers, New Orleans, Seattle
