Jacoby Brissett and Gardner Minshew are the Top Quarterback Waiver Wire Adds in Week 5

Bill Enright

There's two more quarterbacks you need to replace in your fantasy football lineup with injuries to Josh Allen and Mitch Trubisky. Jim Day and Bill Enright identify two passers to claim off the waiver wire heading into Week 5.

With injuries to Drew Brees, Ben Roethlisberger, Nick Foles, and Cam Newton the quarterback position was already a problem for some fantasy football managers. After Week 5, there's two more passers to add to the list of injuries with Mitch Trubisky suffering a shoulder injury and Josh Allen suffering a concussion. 

Before the injury Allen was QB 12 on the year and Trubisky was coming off his most impressive performance of the year with three touchdowns in Week 3. It's unlikely either will play in Week 5 and with two teams on a bye, the need for a quarterback for your fantasy football team is a dire situation. 

Luckily Jim Day and I have two suggestions with Colts QB Jacoby Brissett and Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew, both of which are widely available in more than 60% of leagues.
