For The Last 15 Days
Chad Henne, QB, JACCold9/15/2014 2:06:00 PM
Description: Jacksonville starting QB Chad Henne is already under seige with his Jaguars off to an 0-2 start.
Insight: Jacksonville wants to give Bortles the year to learn as a backup, but his team has been out-scored 75-27 over the first two weeks. My expectations were he would last until the bye week (Week 11), but he may not make it until then. Either quarterback will be handcuffed by a weak offensive line and multiple receiver injuries.
Drew Stanton, QB, ARI9/15/2014 1:38:00 PM
Description: Cardinals backup quarterback Drew Stanton figures to see another week under center while starter Carson Palmer tries to get over his shoulder injury.
Insight: Stanton was 14-of-29 for 167 yards and no scores against the Giants. The Cardinals have the 49ers next up on the schedule, so despite having two solid receivers in Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd, we recommend staying away.
Carson Palmer, QB, ARI9/15/2014 1:34:00 PM
Description: Arizona QB Carson Palmer has no idea when he'll be able to return to the field.
Insight: "It's just one of those things you've just got to wait and hope it wakes up," he told the Arizona Republic. Drew Stanton started and won the game with the Giants, though he wasn't fantasy worthy.
Peyton Manning, QB, DEN9/14/2014 8:16:00 PM
Description: Ho-hum, another monster half from Broncos QB Peyton Manning. He posted 191 yards and three touchdowns in the first half.
Insight: He didn't have the ball much in the second half and probably disappointed fantasy owners with his final totals.
Aaron Rodgers, QB, GBPHot9/14/2014 8:10:00 PM
Description: Packers QB Aaron Rodgers struggled early, but got it going just before halftime with a 97-yard drive for a score.
Insight: Rodgers & Co got rolling in the second half too, including an 80-yard catch and run by Jordy Nelson that left Dee Milliner spinning in futility. Rodgers finished with 346 yards and three scores.
Philip Rivers, QB, SDCHot9/14/2014 7:44:00 PM
Description: Chargers QB Philip Rivers didn't have much trouble with the Seahawks much-heralded defense, going 19-of-23 for 191 yards and two touchdowns ... in the first half.
Insight: He finished well too, with 284 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions.
Russell Wilson, QB, SEA9/14/2014 7:43:00 PM
Description: Seahawks QB Russell Wilson finished the afternoon 17-of-25 for 202 yards and two scores, but couldn't engineer a game-winning drive in the fourth quarter.
Insight: Wilson was again solid, but not spectacular. He has cracked the 230-yard passing mark just once in the last eight games. He's a much better team leader than fantasy asset. It was curious that the Seahawks risked an injury down nine points with 13 second remaining.
Cam Newton, QB, CAR9/14/2014 5:49:00 PM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton finished 22-for-34 with 281 passing yards and one touchdown in Carolina's victory over Detroit in Week 2.
Insight: Newton also rushed for 19 yards and almost scored. The quarterback did not look limited in his return from the rib injury.
Matt Ryan, QB, ATL9/14/2014 5:22:00 PM
Description: Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan finished 24-of-44 for 231 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions against the Bengals in Week 2.
Insight: Ryan followed up his 448 yard and three touchdown Week 1 with a huge dud in Week 2. Fantasy owners could not have expected a repeat of those Week 2 numbers but Ryan was still very disappointing in Cincinnati. We still like him to have a big season, but in bad matchups like Sunday's was, it would be wise to lower expectations a lot or even find a plug-in replacement.
Robert Griffin III, QB, WAS9/14/2014 4:46:00 PM
Description: Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III left the field in the first quarter with his left ankle which has been diagnosed as a dislocated left ankle.
Insight: No timetable was given, but if surgery is needed he could be lost for most or all of the season. Kirk Cousins is a quality backup and hopefully fantasy owners had him handcuffed.
Eli Manning, QB, NYG9/14/2014 4:34:00 PM
Description: Giants QB Eli Manning threw for 277 yards and two scores, but continues to give up the football.
Insight: Today it was two interceptions. By the way, the last time Eli and his Giants won a game in September was Week 3 of 2012.
Tom Brady, QB, NEPCold9/14/2014 4:18:00 PM
Description: patriots quarterback Tom Brady is quickly turning into a "game manager."
Insight: Brady threw just 22 times for 149 yards and a score. He hasn't cracked the 250-yard mark in his last four regular season games and averaged just 237.5 ypg in two playoff games last season.
Matt Cassel, QB, MINCold9/14/2014 4:18:00 PM
Description: Vikings quarterback Matt Cassel was ugly in his second start of the season (19-of-36 for 202 yards, 1 TD, 4 INTs.).
Insight: He doesn't have to win games, but he can't lose them like he did today, if he doesn't want to find himself watching the rookie Teddy Bridgewater.
Robert Griffin III, QB, WAS9/14/2014 1:35:00 PM
Description: Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III left the field in the first quarter with his left ankle in an aircast. He appeared in a lot of pain as he was being examined by the doctor
Insight: Kirk Cousins is a quality backup and hopefully fantasy owners had him handcuffed. RGIII will not return.
Drew Stanton, QB, ARI9/14/2014 11:19:00 AM
Description: Cardinals backup quarterback Drew Stanton is expected to take over with Carson Palmer sidelined by a shoulder injury.
Insight: Stanton saw plenty of practice this week with Palmer limited. The result could be a move toward the running game and a fall in value for Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd.
E.J. Manuel, QB, BUF9/13/2014 8:15:00 PM
Description: The Bills ran 22 of their 57 offensive plays in Week 1 from a zone-read formation.
Insight: Buffalo had the second most zone-read plays in the NFL last year so this isn't exactly a huge surprise. Doug Marrone certainly does not want to overuse his quarterback in the running game, but he should remain an important part of the team's rushing attack, especially in goal-line situations against the Dolphins. Miami will be without two of its starting linebackers on Sunday.
Blake Bortles, QB, JAC9/13/2014 7:29:00 PM
Description: Jaguars coach Gus Bradley told Florida Times Union he sees "positive signs" from rookie quarterback Blake Bortles in practice.
Insight: Bortles has impressed Bradley with his footwork and ability to make throws despite only practicing with the scout team. Jacksonville plans to keep Chad Henne the starter, but he really struggled in the second half against Philadelphia. Bortles is likely a few weeks away from taking over under center.
Shaun Hill, QB, STL9/13/2014 3:09:00 PM
Description: Rams quarterback Shaun Hill (thigh) traveled with the team to Tampa Bay according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.
Insight: Hill does still have a chance to play, but he is a true game-time decision. Austin Davis would get the start if Hill does not play.
Shaun Hill, QB, STL9/12/2014 3:47:00 PM
Description: Rams quarterback Shaun Hill is being called a game-time decision according to coach Jeff Fisher.
Insight: Hill suffered a thigh injury after going 8-of-13 for 81 yards and an interception on Sunday. Hill was a limited practice participant in Friday's practice. Austin Davis played the rest of the game at quarterback and would be the starter if Hill isn't ready to go.
Brian Hoyer, QB, PIT9/12/2014 3:03:00 PM
Description: Browns QB Brian Hoyer was likely in danger of finding himself on the bench after the first half, but responded in the second half and should be given a longer leash in Week 2.
Insight: Hoyer went 19-of-31 for 230 yards and a touchdowns without an interception as the Browns gave the Steelers all they could handle in Week 1. Johnny Manziel will likely have to wait until at least Week 5, after the bye, for a chance to show his stuff. Considering the team will probably be 0-3 at the time, that's when fantasy owners should expect to see Johnny Football
Matt Cassel, QB, MIN9/12/2014 10:52:00 AM
Description: Vikings quarterback Matt Cassel led his team to an easy Week 1 win over the St. Louis Rams which should keep the rookie (Teddy Bridgewater) on the bench for a little while longer.
Insight: Cassel didn't put up fantasy-worthy numbers because of the big lead, but went 17-of-25 for 170 yards and a pair of scores. At some point this season the rookie will get a chance to start, but not this weekend.
Russell Wilson, QB, SEA9/12/2014 9:49:00 AM
Description: Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw for just 191 yards in the Week 1 win, though he did manage two touchdowns (Ricardo Lockette, Derrick Coleman).
Insight: Wilson has cracked the 230-yard passing mark just once in the last seven games and his fantasy value is as a low-end starter. He's a much better team leader than fantasy asset. It's a good sign that he targeted talented Percy Harvin a team-high seven times in the opening week and may help his statistics down the road.
Jake Locker, QB, TEN9/11/2014 1:59:00 PM
Description: Titans quarterback Jake Locker told the Nashville Tennessean that he feels more comfortable against the blitz than he has in the past.
Insight: Locker has been inaccurate against defensive pressure in the past, but that was not the case versus the Chiefs on Sunday. Kansas City did sack Locker four times, but he completed 22-of-33 passes for 266 yards and two touchdowns. If you need a quarterback this week, Locker has a great matchup against the Cowboys.
Cam Newton, QB, CAR9/10/2014 4:01:00 PM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (ribs), ruled out of last Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, was back at practice Wednesday.
Insight: That's a great sign and fantasy owners should expect him to play in Week 2 against the Lions.
Nick Foles, QB, PHI9/9/2014 2:09:00 PM
Description: Eagles quarterback Nick Foles may have to throw some shorter passes next week, given the condition of his offensive line.
Insight: The Eagles will be without both Allen Barbre (ankle) and Evan Mathis (MCL) who were injured Sunday and without Lane Johnson due to his suspension. Foles was sacked five times Sunday and that was against Jacksonville, who is not one of the league's top defenses.
Shaun Hill, QB, STL9/8/2014 2:22:00 PM
Description: Rams quarterback Shaun Hill 's status is in doubt for Week 2 according to Ian Rapoport.
Insight: Hill suffered a thigh injury after going 8-of-13 for 81 yards and an interception on Sunday. Austin Davis played the rest of the game at quarterback. Whether its Hill or Davis, there are about 30 other quarterbacks you would rather start.
Tony Romo, QB, DAL9/8/2014 12:37:00 PM
Description: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo threw three interceptions in Week 1 against the 49ers. He finished 23-of-37 with 281 yards and one touchdown to go along witht the interceptions.
Insight: All three of the picks were forced into double and triple coverage and came in the first 20 minutes of the contest. It is clear now that Romo was rusty from not playing and taking the cautious approach in preseason, recovering from his second back surgery in 16 months. At least we hope it is just rust because if not, the Cowboys and Romo fantasy owners are in for a long, long season.
Tom Brady, QB, NEP9/7/2014 6:30:00 PM
Description: Tom Brady owners can't be happy with what they saw in Week 1 against Miami.
Insight: The Pats quarterback threw the ball 56 times for just 249 yards and was sacked four times. It's the lack of balance that should concern fantasy owners. The Patriots rushed the ball just 20 times and dropped back to pass 60 times.
Nick Foles, QB, PHI9/7/2014 6:25:00 PM
Description: Eagles quarterback Nick Foles was, like his team, ugly in the first half but very good after the break.
Insight: The good - Foles threw for 322 yards and a pair of touchdowns. The bad - he was sacked five times and threw an interception. And this was against the Jacksonville Jaguar.
Joe Flacco, QB, BAL9/7/2014 6:20:00 PM
Description: Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco threw the ball 62 times for 345 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: I got tired just watching him. He was also sacked three times. There is no way he survives the season if he passes the ball 992 times (62x16).
Jay Cutler, QB, CHI9/7/2014 6:18:00 PM
Description: A typical Jay Cutler afternoon, alternately looking very good and very bad.
Insight: Cutler threw for 349 yards and two scores, but also threw a pair of interceptions in a 23-20 loss to Buffalo.
Ben Roethlisberger, QB, PITHot9/7/2014 6:15:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh QB Ben Roethlisberger went 23-of-34 for 365 yards and a touchdown against Cleveland.
Insight: Big Ben could have posted so much more after a 278-yard first half, but the Steelers forgot to bring the offense out after halftime. The Roethlisberger-to-Antonio Brown combination looks unstoppable.
Matt Ryan, QB, ATLHot9/7/2014 6:12:00 PM
Description: Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan was a fantasy monster Sunday, throwing for 448 yards and three scores without an interception.
Insight: Ryan was sacked just one time as his offensive line, a weak point last season, held up against the Saints. If they can continue to give Ryan protection, he's going to do a lot more damage with his three high-quality targets (Julio Jones, Roddy White, Harry Douglas).
Cam Newton, QB, CAR9/7/2014 3:17:00 PM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (ribs) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.
Insight: Derek Anderson will get the start. If you have anyone on the Panthers offense, they take a major fantasy hit for Week 1. On the other hand, the Tampa Bay defense is a sneaky good start for Week 1.
Shaun Hill, QB, STL9/7/2014 2:58:00 PM
Description: Rams quarterback Shaun Hill didn't last very long as the replacement for Sam Bradford.
Insight: Hill has a thigh injury after going 8-of-13 for 81 yards and an interception and scoring zero points. Austin Davis is under center in the third quarter.
Austin Davis, QB, STL9/7/2014 2:57:00 PM
Description: Starter Shaun Hill was benched after producing scoring zero points in the first half and Austin Davis is under center in the third quarter.
Insight: This is Davis' first action in the NFL. His fantasy value to be determined.
Cam Newton, QB, CAR9/5/2014 11:59:00 AM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (ribs) was part of throwing drills in Friday's practice.
Insight: Since he didn't throw on Thursday, this is good news for fantasy owners. Time is getting short and it appears he'll end up being a game-time decision.
Aaron Rodgers, QB, GBP9/4/2014 11:46:00 PM
Description: As expected, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers struggled against a stout Seahawks defense on the road.
Insight: Rodgers threw for just 189 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Almost all his targets were within 10 yards of the lineup scrimmage. Its not "breaking news" that fantasy owners should avoid starting players against Seattle in the Pacific northwest.
Tom Brady, QB, NEP9/4/2014 5:45:00 PM
Description: New England QB Tom Brady did not practice on Thursday due to a calf issue according to patriots.com.
Insight: The Patriots did not list Brady on the injury list on Wednesday, so that means this is a new injury. Although it will be hard to find out before Sunday the status on the injury due to Bill Belichick's lack of words, we don't expect Brady to miss Week 1.
Cam Newton, QB, CAR9/4/2014 3:00:00 PM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (ribs) told the media on Thursday that he doesn't "want to put this team in jeopardy (if he is not healthy)" and then went on to praise his offense saying "One monkey don't stop the show" according to Steve Reed of the Associated Press.
Insight: Although fantasy owners may have had their own speculation, this is the first time anyone from the Panthers has hinted that Newton might not play Week 1. Newton did also say he has never missed a game at any level in his career, but the fact he has put some doubt in our minds is some cause for concern this Sunday.
Cam Newton, QB, CAR9/4/2014 1:53:00 PM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (ribs) participated in just portions of Thursday's practice as he was limited to just handoffs.
Insight: It is not a good sign that three days before the opener Newton was not throwing at all. We still expect him to be out there, probably wearing a flak jacket for protection, but in deep leagues with one starting quarterback, owners can find a better starting quarterback for Week 1.
Matt Schaub, QB, OAKCold9/3/2014 1:36:00 PM
Description: Raiders quarterback Matt Schaub said he was surprised and disappointed when rookie Derek Carr was announced as Oakland's starter for Week 1.
Insight: Derek Carr's great preseason had made him the front-runner for the starting job. Fantasy owners should still consider holding onto Schaub as there is no guarantee that Carr will keep the position. Playing well in preseason against vanilla defenses doesn't always translate to regular season success.
Case Keenum, QB, STL9/1/2014 6:56:00 PM
Description: The St. Louis Rams have claimed quarterback Case Keenum off waivers from the Houston Texans.
Insight: The Texans waived the second-year QB after acquiring Ryan Mallett from the New England Patriots and the Rams needed a backup for Shaun Hill.
Derek Carr, QB, OAKHot9/1/2014 6:20:00 PM
Description: According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, Raiders players have been informed that the team will start Derek Carr at quarterback in Week 1.
Insight: Schaub was horrible in the preseason and is dealing with elbow soreness. Carr, a rookie second-rounder, is simply a better option than Schaub at this point and should improve the fantasy value of Oakland's skill position players.
