Giants Add Matt Barkley To Active Roster

Wednesday, November 8, 12:17 PM

The New York Giants signed quarterback Matt Barkley from the practice squad to their active 53-man roster on Wednesday. Daniel Jones (knee) suffered a season-ending torn ACL in the Week 9 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders, and the team also placed veteran Tyrod Taylor (ribs) on Injured Reserve last weekend. Taylor will miss at least the next three games, but there's a chance he may not play again this year. The G-Men are moving forward with undrafted rookie Tommy Devito under center for the time being, but the 33-year-old Barkley could eventually be making starts for the Giants before the season is over. It's a dire QB situation for New York to be in, and it will be a major downgrade for all of their offensive weapons in fantasy, mainly running back Saquon Barkley.

Jalen Hurts Struggles Without Top Target

Tuesday, January 16, 10:36 AM

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts completed 25 of 35 passes for 250 yards and one touchdown, adding one carry for five yards during the team's 9-32 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 25-year-old didn't make many mistakes but was unable to put the team into scoring range consistently without A.J. Brown (knee). Over half of Hurts' passing yards went to DeVonta Smith. The Eagles' offense was in shambles at the end of the year and could not get things turned around by the start of the playoffs. There are bound to be plenty of changes to the coaching staff and roster come September, but Hurts will remain a top-five fantasy quarterback because when he is healthy and has his full complement of weapons, he is as good as any other.
