Fantasy NFL
Quarterback Player Notes
For The Last 15 Days
Teddy Bridgewater, QB, MIN7/27/2014 8:00:00 PM
Description: Teddy Bridgewater and Matt Cassel have been "pretty much splitting reps" so far in camp, according to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports.
Insight: According to Glazer, Bridgewater has been more impressive than the Vikings expected. If Bridgewater can emerge as a viable NFL starter this season, it would be great for the fantasy value of Adrian Peterson, Cordarrelle Patterson and Kyle Rudolph.
Sam Bradford, QB, STL7/25/2014 11:30:00 AM
Description: Rams quarterback Sam Bradford (knee surgery) appears to be ready to go for the start of training camp, according to a St. Louis Post-Dispatch report.
Insight: Prior to his injury, Bradford threw for 1,687 yards, 14 touchdowns and four interceptions in seven games. While Bradford has struggled to live up to expectations, he's more than capable of delivering gaudy numbers if healthy, so definitely keep an eye on his progress in camp.
Ryan Tannehill, QB, MIA7/25/2014 11:25:00 AM
Description: According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins will add the read-option to the offense this season.
Insight: The Dolphins QB is athletic and this could lead to more rushing yards and touchdown opportunities. It could also open him up to more injuries. Tannehill was much improved in Year 2 and could be a viable fantasy starter this season if he continues his upward trend.
Robert Griffin III, QB, WAS7/24/2014 11:43:00 AM
Description: Robert Griffin III may not be utilizing the "read-option" much this season as coach Jay Gruden has never been a fan of this offensive strategy.
Insight: Griffin will still use his feet to get outside on rollouts and should have the green light to take off whenever he needs to, but we're not expecting to see much "read-option" football in D.C. Fantasy owners will want to see this offense in action to determine what effect it will have on RGIII's value, but with his receiving weapons the QB should be a top-six fantasy quarterback in 2014.
Tony Romo, QB, DAL7/24/2014 11:24:00 AM
Description: Cowboys QB Tony Romo is expected to be a full participant in training camp from the first day, according to a Dallas Morning News report by Jon Machota.
Insight: The Cowboys QB had December back surgery and is right on schedule with his rehab work. Romo threw for 3,828 yards and 31 touchdowns against just 10 interceptions, but missed the season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Matt Cassel, QB, MIN7/21/2014 4:18:00 PM
Description: Vikings quarterback Matt Cassel is expected to be the starter for Game 1, according to former Vikings beat reporter and USA Today's Tom Pelissero.
Insight: Whether he keeps the job all season is another story, but the veteran should get the nod early on.
Jimmy Clausen, QB, CHI7/18/2014 9:29:00 PM
Description:'s Michael C. Wright says that Jimmy Clausen "appears poised to unseat" Jordan Palmer for the backup QB job.
Insight: Clausen hasn't thrown a pass in the NFL since his rookie year in 2010, when he had a 3/9 TD/INT ratio and a .525 completion percentage. But remember that Josh McCown was a journeyman with a 37/44 TD/INT prior to putting up a 13/1 TD/INT and a .665 completion percentage in Bears coach Marc Trestman's offense last season. Bears starter Jay Cutler has missed 13 games over the past four years.
Aaron Rodgers, QB, GBP7/16/2014 4:43:00 PM
Description: Packers coach Mike McCarthy and QB Aaron Rodgers both want to run 75 plays a game in 2014, according to
Insight: The Packers ranked 11th in the NFL with an average of 67.125 plays per game last year and the Broncos were first with 72.25, so 75 plays is ambitious. Still, we like that Green Bay plans to push the pace. That will help Rodgers, Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Eddie Lacy all live up to their lofty ADPs.
