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.

C.J. Stroud Struggles In Divisional Round Loss

Saturday, January 20, 11:43 PM

Houston Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud struggled on the road in the team's 34-10 Divisional Round loss against the Baltimore Ravens. Stroud was not particularly efficient on Saturday, completing 19-of-33 passes for just 175 yards. The Ravens held the rookie in check, which resulted in him throwing zero touchdowns in a game for the fourth time this season. After a successful rookie campaign, Stroud's season will officially end. However, he has emerged as a top fantasy quarterback option and should be drafted pretty early in Superflex formats next season.
