49ers | No QB for San Francisco at No. 2?

Sun, 12 Mar 2017 17:55:14 -0700

The San Francisco 49ers are likely looking at positions other than quarterback with the No. 2 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft after signing QB Brian Hoyer and QB Matt Barkley, according to Bucky Brooks of NFL.com.

Fantasy Tip: If the 49ers do pass on one of the top quarterback prospects, it will likely mean Hoyer opens the year as the starter, but he would only be a low-end QB2 candidate.

49ers | San Francisco still in QB market

Sat, 11 Mar 2017 08:20:16 -0800

The San Francisco 49ers will continue to look for quarterbacks this offseason despite signing Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley in free agency, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan, who added he doesn't know whether the team will address the position in the free agency or the draft.

Fantasy Tip: This news hardly qualifies as a surprise, as neither Hoyer nor Barkley were signed to be the long-term answer. It does reduce the need for the 49ers to use the second pick of the draft next month to take a quarterback, although it certainly doesn't take them out of the market. Given the lack of a blue-chip passer in the draft, however, it appears the most likely scenario at the moment involves starting Hoyer in 2017 and hoping Kirk Cousins will sign with San Francisco next offseason.

Bears | Disastrous ending for Matt Barkley

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 21:20:03 -0800

Chicago Bears QB Matt Barkley completed 10 of his 14 pass attempts for 125 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 17 game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: Barkley showed some glimpses of brilliance subbing for the injured Jay Cutler and Brian Hoyer down the stretch, but this was a terrible finish. His future in this league is likely as a backup, and he doesn't look to have much fantasy value going into 2017.

Bears | Matt Barkley throws five INTs

Sun, 25 Dec 2016 13:57:35 -0800

Chicago Bears QB Matt Barkley went 24-for-40 for 323 yards, two touchdowns and five interceptions against the Washington Redskins in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Barkley has thrown for at least 300 yards in each of his last two games but has also thrown eight interceptions during that span. Owners in all leagues should be able to find better options and can avoid Barkley.

Bears | Matt Barkley over 300 yards again

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 17:23:43 -0800

Chicago Bears QB Matt Barkley completed 30 of his 43 pass attempts for 362 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions in the Week 15 game against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Barkley has two 300-yard performances in the past four games, and he has at least one touchdown pass in three of his past four. The one poor game was a snow-marred win against the San Francisco 49ers. He isn't quite a QB1, but he is a strong QB2 fantasy option in leagues using two starting signal callers.

Bears | Matt Barkley tosses TD in loss

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 19:14:09 -0800

Chicago Bears QB Matt Barkley completed 20 of his 32 pass attempts for 212 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 14 loss against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Barkley didn't make any mistakes, which is a refreshing change from a Chicago quarterback position which usually sees several. But he didn't do much to help fantasy owners, either, and that won't change down the stretch this season.

Bears | Matt Barkley finishes with 192 yards

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 13:35:02 -0800

Chicago Bears QB Matt Barkley went 11-for-18 for 192 yards against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Barkley was dealing with some inclement weather during the game but still posted decent passing yardage. Barkley should continue to be the starting quarterback for the Bears but should not be an option for fantasy owners.

Bears | Matt Barkley solid in first NFL start

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 15:48:17 -0800

Chicago Bears QB Matt Barkley completed 28 of his 54 pass attempts for 316 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 12 game against the Tennessee Titans. He wasn't sacked, and he did fumble once although the team was able to recover.

Fantasy Tip: If Jay Cutler is unable to return, Barkley might continue to start in Chicago. He did a decent job, but is more of a QB2 for fantasy owners in leagues that start two signal callers.

Bears | Matt Barkley to face Tennessee

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 07:01:03 -0800

Chicago Bears QB Matt Barkley will start Week 12's game against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Barkley should not be viewed as a viable option in any format and his presence under center is likely to negatively impact the fantasy value of all Chicago offensive players not named Jordan Howard. In addition, it probably wouldn't be a bad idea to stream the Tennessee defense.
