Jimmy Garoppolo Suspended Two Games For PEDs

Friday, February 16, 2:02 PM

Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is being suspended for two games for violating the league's performance-enhancing substances policy, according to league sources. The policy violation is related to him using a prescribed medication without having a valid therapeutic use exemption, according to sources. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that Garoppolo is headed for his release after the news. Even if the 32-year-old wasn't suspended, he likely would have been released this offseason anyway after being benched for rookie Aidan O'Connell in 2023. The Raiders will avoid having to pay him an $11.25 million roster bonus if they cut him before March 17. Jimmy G threw for 1,205 yards, seven TDs and nine interceptions in seven games (six starts) in his first and last year in Vegas.

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.
