Mac Jones Benched For Bailey Zappe In Week 12

Sunday, November 26, 2:42 PM

New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones was benched and replaced by Bailey Zappe during halftime of Sunday's game against the New York Giants. Jones had completed 12 of 21 passes for 89 yards, zero touchdowns, and two interceptions at the time of his departure. He now has a horrendous ratio of 10 touchdowns to 12 interceptions this season. He also fumbled on Sunday, but it was recovered by New England. Week 12 marks the fourth time this season that Jones has been benched for Zappe. It last happened in Week 10 when Bill Belichick made the switch ahead of a decisive fourth-quarter drive versus the Colts. In that scenario, Zappe threw a game-ending interception. Zappe doesn't represent a major drop-off from Jones, so Demario Douglas, Rhamondre Stevenson, and Hunter Henry should continue to warrant fantasy consideration.

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.
