Russell Wilson Goes Over 300 Yards Again

Sunday, September 24, 8:29 PM

Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson went over 300 yards passing for the second straight week, but the Broncos were nevertheless embarrassed by a score of 70-20 on the road in Miami against the Dolphins. Wilson finished the blowout loss by going 23-for-38 for 306 yards, one touchdown and one interception while being sacked just once for a loss of 12 yards. He didn't attempt to run the ball at all. The 34-year-old has had two straight encouraging performances and now has six touchdown passes and two interceptions through his first three games of 2023. His lone TD pass went to receiver Courtland Sutton, who has easily been Wilson's favorite target in the early going. In a very favorable Week 4 matchup coming against the winless Chicago Bears, Wilson will be on the fantasy streaming radar in single-QB leagues.

Matt Barkley Waived With Injury Settlement

Friday, September 1, 6:43 PM

Buffalo Bills quarterback Matt Barkley (elbow) was waived from Injured Reserve with an injury settlement. The veteran QB injured his right elbow during the preseason, and the Bills decided to release him with an injury settlement, as opposed to keeping him on IR for the rest of the year. Depending on the severity of his elbow injury, Barkley should be able to find a home elsewhere as a backup or third-stringer.
