Case Keenum, QB, Washington Redskins

ESPN fantasy ownership: 1.2% Week 1 stats: 380 passing yards, three passing touchdowns — 27.2 fantasy points One thing to know: While Washington wasn’t able to hold on to the win in Philadelphia, quarterback Case Keenum shredded the Eagles defense through the first half of the game. He spread the ball around with ease and looked much like his 2017-self that took the Minnesota Vikings to the NFC title game. By the end of Sunday, he was the fifth-highest scoring quarterback in fantasy. The Redskins might still hand the reins over to rookie Dwayne Haskins during the season, but for those in two-QB leagues or with an early bye week for their top starter, Keenum should be a workable replacement.

Gardner Minshew, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars

ESPN fantasy ownership: 0.1% Week 1 stats: 274 passing yards, two passing touchdowns, one interception — 17.6 fantasy points One thing to know: New Jaguars quarterback Nick Foles was knocked out of his very first game in Jacksonville with a shoulder injury just after throwing a brilliant touchdown pass to DJ Chark. In relief, the Jaguars called upon rookie Gardner Minshew out of Washington State, who completed 22 of his 25 passes, and looked remarkably poised for a first-time player. With Foles out with a broken clavicle until at least the second half of the season, Minshew is a must-add for anyone playing in a two-quarterback league.
