Teddy Bridgewater: Bridgewater is as capable of a backup as any team has in the league. He has made 29 starts over the past two seasons with the Panthers and Broncos.

Taking over for Tua Tagovailoa last Thursday, Bridgewater completed 14-of-23 passes for 193 yards (8.4 Y/A) with a touchdown and an interception. 

Bridgewater had just nine QB1 scoring weeks over his 29 starts with 16.3 fantasy points per game, but these are the best wide receivers he has ever played with while Mike McDaniel should put him in a position to be efficient. 

The Jets are 21st in passing points allowed per attempt (0.44), 25th in yards allowed per attempt (7.7 Y/A), while allowing 11.7 yards per completion (22nd), and a 5.9% touchdown rate (28th). 

Bridgewater may not be an option for 1QB formats, but if you are a gamer that was starting Tua or looking for a solid, viable option in 2QB formats, Bridgewater has a strong foundation of playmakers, scheme, and matchup in order.
