Kyle Trask Continues His Strong Play

Saturday, August 26, 10:48 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Kyle Trask continued to step up and deliver despite being named the backup to open the season. The 25-year-old spent a majority of the preseason competing with Baker Mayfield for the starting gig in Tampa Bay. The Bucs ultimately decided to go with Mayfield as their starter. Despite that, Trask continued his strong preseason versus the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday. Trask completed 19-of-31 passing attempts for 192 yards and a touchdown in the win. He has been able to limit the turnovers and make some big plays on offense. The former second-round pick is set to backup Mayfield, but will be the next man up off the bench.

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.
