Falcons | T.J. Yates has to earn spot

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 06:10:46 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB T.J. Yates knows he has to earn the backup quarterback job behind QB Matt Ryan. Yates is in an open competition with QB Sean Renfree. "We are competing at every position every single day. I have to earn my spot on this team, like everybody else," Yates said Saturday, Aug. 15.

Fantasy Tip: In Friday's preseason opener, Yates completed 9-of-15 passes for 105 yards and an interception, while Renfree completed 6-of-7 passes for 68 yards. Yates has appeared in 14 regular season games in his career, but he hasn't thrown a touchdown pass since his rookie season in 2011. Renfree has never appeared in a regular season NFL game.

Falcons | Strong outing for T.J. Yates

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 00:23:23 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB T.J. Yates threw for two touchdowns and 243 yards in his team's 24-14 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Tip: Yates had thrown 39 percent of his passes for completions prior to this outing, but this was a strong performance and could vault him into the No. 2 slot behind Matt Ryan. Yates carries little fantasy value unless he makes the roster and Ryan gets hurt, so watch the next couple days to see if he survives roster cuts.

Texans | Still no official starting quarterback

Fri, 13 Jun 2014 12:00:04 -0700

The Houston Texans finished organized team activities Friday, June 13, without a starting quarterback. QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick, Case Keenum, T.J. Yates and rookie Tom Savage are competing for three roster spots. Fitzpatrick, who is expected to start Week 1, had a "decent offseason" and has done well picking up a new offense, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. Savage hasn't been ruled out for the No. 2 position.

Fantasy Tip: Whoever ends up being the starter in Houston won't be worthy of starter status on your fantasy team. He'll be a bye-week replacement at best.
