Jake Haener Suspended For PEDs

New Orleans Saints quarterback Jake Haener was suspended six games for violating the NFL's PED policy on Wednesday. Haener, a fourth-round pick out of Fresno State in 2023, will kick off his NFL career away from the team as he serves out his suspension. He will first be eligible to return to the team's active roster on October 16 and will lose $250,000 of his $750,000 salary on the year. Haener mostly practiced as the team's third-string QB behind Derek Carr and Jameis Winston throughout training camp and the preseason.

Jake Haener Struggles In Preseason Loss

New Orleans Saints rookie quarterback Jake Haener had a tough outing in the final preseason game of the season. Haener completed 17 of 38 pass attempts for 172 yards, throwing two interceptions and taking two sacks in the loss. He added two carries for 32 yards on the ground. The fourth-round rookie from Fresno State is entrenched as the third string quarterback for New Orleans, where he will develop behind Derek Carr and Jameis Winston. He will not see game action this season unless both Carr and Winston face injuries, so leave him completely off of the fantasy radar for now.

Jake Haener Plays Second Half In Preseason Victory

New Orleans Saints rookie quarterback Jake Haener had a modest outing on Sunday night, playing the second half of the win over the Los Angeles Chargers. Haener went 11-for-17 through the air for 118 yards with no touchdowns or turnovers. The 24-year-old fourth round pick has a lot of upside to be a quality backup in this league, but as of right now is slotted in as the third option on the New Orleans depth chart behind Derek Carr and Jameis Winston. He may not get an opportunity to start games this season, but should be an adequate option in the future.
