Bengals | May only keep two quarterbacks

Fri, 26 Aug 2011 10:36:33 -0700

The Cincinnati Bengals played just two quarterbacks -- Andy Dalton and Bruce Gradkowski -- Thursday, Aug. 25, in their third preseason game. It appears the team is considering entering the season with just two quarterbacks on roster. Backup QB Jordan Palmer appears to be the odd man out if they do keep three, as he has not played in the past two preseason games. QB Dan LeFevour would likely be the third option if the Bengals choose to retain three signal callers.

Raiders | Gradkowski to start in Week 12

Sun, 28 Nov 2010 10:49:29 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Bruce Gradkowski (shoulder) will start in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins, sources with knowledge of the situation said, reports NFL.com's Jason La Canfora. The acromioclavicular joint in the quarterback's shoulder has healed well. Gradkowski received the majority of the work in practice this week, the sources said.

Fantasy Tip: If you owned Jason Campbell and Gradkowski is available, you shouldn't wait to acquire the latter. Gradkowski has proven to be a more reliable fantasy player of the two anyway, and he has proven to be more beneficial to the numbers of the team's receiving options, too, particularly the wide receivers. Gradkowski is still not more than a low-end or midrange fantasy backup.
