Kendre Miller, Taysom Hill Good To Go For Sunday

Friday, September 22, 7:49 PM

New Orleans Saints rookie running back Kendre Miller (hamstring) and quarterback Taysom Hill (knee) both practiced in full the last two days and won't carry injury designations into the Week 3 contest on Sunday at Lambeau Field against the Green Bay Packers. Jamaal Williams (hamstring) is out and Alvin Kamara won't return from his suspension until next week, so Miller, a third-rounder, will make his NFL debut this weekend after missing the first two games of the year with a hamstring injury of his own. The 21-year-old should have a role against Green Bay, but with Tony Jones Jr. and Hill also being involved, it's hard to recommend Miller as anything more than a desperation RB3/flex in his debut. Miller's role should only increase as the year progresses, but he'll also have to deal with the return of Kamara.

Sam Darnold Named No. 2 Quarterback For 49ers

Wednesday, August 23, 2:51 PM

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Sam Darnold has been named the No. 2 quarterback behind starter Brock Purdy. The No. 3 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft struggled in his three seasons with the New York Jets and one season with the Carolina Panthers -- throwing 61 touchdowns to 55 interceptions en route to a 21-34 record as a starter. He'll now be a high-value "handcuff" quarterback for Purdy in superflex and two-quarterback formats. Trey Lance is now the team's third-string quarterback and his future is uncertain moving forward. It'll be interesting to see if teams call about trading for him before or during the 2023 campaign.
