Skylar Thompson Intercepted Twice Saturday

Saturday, August 26, 10:44 PM

Miami Dolphins quarterback Skylar Thompson completed 15 of 24 passes for 135 yards, zero touchdowns, and two interceptions during Saturday's loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also tallied 18 rushing yards. Ultimately, Thompson finishes the preseason with a 59.7 percent completion rate, three touchdowns, and four picks. He should make the 53-man roster, but it remains to be seen whether he or Mike White (concussion) will occupy the No. 2 role behind Tua Tagovailoa.

Sam Howell Unsure About His Role

Sunday, June 2, 8:24 PM

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Sam Howell is expected to begin the season behind Geno Smith. However, it appears the former Commander isn't a lock to be the No. 2 signal-caller on the depth chart. "Not much," he said when responding to a question about what he knows about his role heading into the 2023-24 campaign. "They just tell me to keep working and just keep trying to get better every single day, and I'm taking it one day at a time, and I really don't worry too much about the future or what plans they might have for me just because nobody really knows." Howell finished last season by throwing for 3,946 yards, 21 touchdowns, and 21 interceptions. He also completed 63.4% of his throws and added five rushing touchdowns. As such, the 23-year-old could get a chance under center in Seattle if Smith struggles at any point during the season, assuming he doesn't win the starting job during training camp. As a result, dynasty managers playing in multi-quarterback setups and have room to spare should keep Howell on the roster, at least for now.
