Hendon Hooker Moves Into QB2 Role

Monday, May 27, 4:28 PM

Detroit Lions quarterback Hendon Hooker was rumored to be a first-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft in the middle of his stellar final season at Tennessee in 2022. However, he suffered a late-season ACL tear and was ultimately a third-round selection by Detroit. Teddy Bridgewater was Jared Goff's primary backup last season, while Hooker spent most of his debut campaign on the Injured Reserve list. With Bridgewater announcing his retirement this offseason, the 26-year-old is set to move into the QB2 role in 2024. So far at OTAs, the reviews have been promising. "It was fun watching Hendon Hooker sling it in a team setting for the very first time," Colton Pouncy of The Athletic wrote. "Really nice touch on his deep ball. Good velocity. One of his best plays of the day was a deep ball down the right sideline to Daurice Fountain, which drew "oooohs" and "aaahhs" from the team." After Goff signed a four-year extension to remain with the organization, Hooker's narrow path to the starting job closed. However, he can be stashed in deep Superflex or two-QB leagues. If Goff had to miss any time due to injury, the 26-year-old sophomore would have intriguing upside thanks to his rushing ability and pass-catching group headlined by Amon-Ra St. Brown and Sam LaPorta.

Tanner McKee Leads Eagles In Passing Against Colts

Friday, August 25, 9:16 AM

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Tanner McKee completed 19-of-34 passes for 158 yards, adding one carry for five yards, during the team's 27-13 preseason loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Marcus Mariota was only given one series this week, completing one deep pass for 21 yards. It seems as though the Eagles wanted to provide McKee with as much of a chance to win them over and take the backup job from the veteran as possible, but this was not a particularly outstanding performance overall. With that said, the rookie has looked better than Mariota this preseason, so there is a chance he makes the final 53-man roster. If cut, the Eagles will look to stash the 23-year-old on their practice squad.
