Jacoby Brissett Inactive Versus 49ers

Sunday, December 31, 11:06 AM

Washington Commanders quarterback Jacoby Brissett (hamstring) is officially inactive for Week 17 versus the San Francisco 49ers. He was initially expected to make his first start of the season this Sunday, but a hamstring injury that initially rendered him questionable will ultimately keep him sidelined against the NFC's top team. Being inactive will make Brissett the team's emergency No. 3 quarterback, meaning he could enter the game if both Sam Howell and Jake Fromm are injured. Howell, of course, will draw his 16th start of the season. He has produced mixed results this year but could benefit from a pass-heavy attack against a 49ers secondary that has allowed 241.1 passing yards and 1.1 passing touchdowns per game. Fantasy managers should view Howell as a low-end QB2 option this week.

Bryce Young Needs Weapons On Offense

Saturday, February 17, 1:23 PM

The Carolina Panthers went 2-15 last year and fired both their head coach and general manager. They have all kinds of needs this offseason, but The Athletic's Joe Person thinks that their biggest priority should be getting young quarterback Bryce Young some help in the passing game. DJ Chark Jr. ranked in the bottom 10 in the league in average separation and catch percentage, while Jonathan Mingo had the fifth-worst catch percentage (50.6) in his rookie campaign. Adam Thielen had a 1,000-yard season, but the 33-year-old can no longer stretch defenses at his age. It all caused Young to stand in the pocket waiting for someone to get open before eventually getting enveloped by the pass rush. Young has plenty to work on himself, but helping him take the next step in Year 2 will start with surrounding him with better playmakers.
