Broncos Haven't Received Calls On Russell Wilson

Tuesday, February 27, 2:27 PM

When asked about quarterback Russell Wilson's trade market this offseason, Denver Broncos general manager George Paton said he hasn't been contacted by any teams. Meanwhile, head coach Sean Payton said on Tuesday that a decision on Wilson's future with the team will come "in the next two weeks" before the start of free agency. Expectations are that Wilson will be released before the start of the new league year on March 13, which will cause Denver to carry an $85 million dead-money salary cap hit in 2024. The 35-year-old had a bounce-back season in 2023 in his second year with the team, but his fate seemed sealed when the Broncos benched him for the final two regular season games. Wilson didn't appear finished quite yet last year, but even a move to a better team in 2024 wouldn't ensure that he'd be a trustworthy QB1 in fantasy.

Marcus Mariota News

Marcus Mariota Tallies 194 Yards In Week 18

Sunday, January 7, 7:43 PM

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Marcus Mariota completed 13 of 20 passes for 148 yards, one touchdown, and one interception while adding six carries for 46 yards and a fumble during Sunday's 10-27 loss to the New York Giants. Jalen Hurts (finger) looked like he would exit the game due to his injury but came back in before being pulled by the coaching staff once the game was out of reach. Mariota did his best with the weapons he had, but all of the Eagles starting skill players outside of Dallas Goedert were out of the game. The extent of Hurts' injury is unknown, but since he already returned to this game and was throwing the ball, it is hard to imagine that he will sit out next week when the Eagles travel to Tampa Bay.
