Donovan McNabb | QB


2011 Fantasy Football Outlook: Donovan McNabb got the change of scenery he desperately needed as Washington seemed to be a horrible fit for the veteran, as he clashed with the Shanahan’s. Now in Minnesota, he should have better success, but likely will never be the player he once was as the Vikings offensive line is very suspect, and the team lost its best receiver in Sidney Rice.

While McNabb should help players like Percy Harvin and Adrian Peterson have solid fantasy value, I don’t view him as an option to select as a backup in leagues with less than 16 teams. That basically means that he’s not worth owning unless you’re in a league where any starting quarterback has possible own-able value, just because they start.

2011 June

It seemed like the right move when Mike Shanahan acquired Donovan McNabb to be the teams’ quarterback last offseason. McNabb has had an accomplished career, playing in the NFC East and in the West Cost System throughout. Sure the Redskins offensive line needed some help and aging Santana Moss wasn’t going to be a strong number one receiver, but McNabb would surely help this team stay in contention.

Not only did things not workout as planned but Shanahan seemed to grow uneasy with McNabb as his starting quarterback by mid season, and eventually he benched in favor of Bears’ legend Rex Grossman. Sure, you could build the argument that McNabb isn’t as good as he once was, but I believe everyone had to be surprised by the move away from McNabb and the way it was done.

In the end, McNabb has continues to act like a true pro this off-season as he’s still a part of Washington’s organization but that will change as the team is turning to John Beck to start, and they won’t give McNabb his 10 million dollar roster bonus. Look for McNabb to be on the move, shortly after the lockout ends. At that time, we will know more about his fantasy football value, but no matter where he ends up, at best he will be a backup option in ten team standard leagues.

2010 Fantasy Outlook

2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Donovan McNabb sustained a rib injury in the first game of the season, and it cost him a couple of weeks early on. In that time Kevin Kolb got a chance to start and had a couple of fine games against the Saints and Chiefs.

Upon McNabb’s return, he posted a respectable year as DeSean Jackson and Brent Celek had Pro Bowl caliber numbers.

2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: This offseason the Eagles traded McNabb away to the Redskins as they are ready to use Kolb in the starting lineup. This trade hurts McNabb’s fantasy value as he doesn’t have a elite No.1 receiver once again and his offensive line is in a rebuilding phase.

Still, McNabb is one of the better deep ball throws and someone other than Santana Moss should be productive at receiver. Look for Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelly to be break out candidates if the team doesn’t sign Terrell Owens in free agency.

With concerns on the offensive line and no true touchdown maker on the team, McNabb is falling just out of our top ten fantasy quarterbacks.


– Good Deep Ball Thrower

– Two Solid Tight Ends

– Still In West Coast Offense


– Patch Work Offensive Line

– Team May Run Early In The Season

– Needs A Young Receiver To Breakout
