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.

Marcus Mariota Splitting First-Team Reps For Commanders

Thursday, June 13, 12:52 PM

Washington Commanders quarterback Marcus Mariota has been splitting first-team reps with first-round rookie Jayden Daniels this offseason, according to head coach Dan Quinn. The former No. 2 overall pick in 2015 by the Tennessee Titans signed a one-year deal with Washington at the start of free agency, and he could be the short-term starter if the team wants Daniels to sit for the first few weeks of the 2024 campaign. Although Mariota has struggled to keep a starting job, he has underrated fantasy football upside thanks to his rushing skill set. In 13 games for the Atlanta Falcons in 2022, Mariota averaged a respectable 15.8 fantasy points per game behind 2,219 passing yards, 15 passing touchdowns, nine interceptions, 438 rushing yards, and four rushing touchdowns. He's a must-stash option in Superflex leagues, and fantasy managers might get one or two QB1 weeks out of him if he's the starter to begin the Dan Quinn era in Washington.
