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.

Rams Agree With Jimmy Garoppolo On One-Year Deal

Friday, March 15, 5:37 PM

The Los Angeles Rams agreed to terms with free-agent quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on an undisclosed one-year deal on Friday, according to sources. Following his disastrous year with the Las Vegas Raiders in 2023, Jimmy G is now set to join the Rams for one season as Matthew Stafford's backup. Garoppolo must first serve a two-games suspension to start the year for performance-enhancing drugs, but then he will be holding a clipboard on the sidelines with the Rams. The 32-year-old signal-caller played in seven games with the Raiders last year before getting hurt and eventually benched for rookie Aidan O'Connell, going 110-for-169 for 1,205 yards, seven touchdowns and nine interceptions. Pretty much all of the fantasy value that Jimmy G had going into last season is now gone.
