Saints | Three vying for backup QB duties

Sun, 09 Jun 2013 17:13:32 -0700

The New Orleans Saints have QBs Ryan W. Griffin, Luke McCown and Seneca Wallace in camp, each vying for the primary backup job behind starting QB Drew Brees.

Fantasy Tip: It is likely McCown and Wallace win the job due to their veteran status, with Griffin spending time on the practice squad. However, unless disaster strikes and Brees does down with a long-term injury, none of the trio will have much in the way of fantasy appeal.

Jaguars | David Garrard to be released

Tue, 06 Sep 2011 12:29:49 -0700

The Jacksonville Jaguars told QB David Garrard Tuesday, Sept. 6, that they plan to release him. QB Luke McCown will start in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: The Jags may be tempted to open up the passing game up a bit more with McCown under center, but this move probably hurts the wideouts on roster more than it helps. McCown is a QB3 at best. Blaine Gabbert's debut may be expedited if McCown proves ineffective, but like McCown, he wouldn't be more than a third QB option.
