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.

Bears | Matt Barkley still learning offense

Sat, 26 Nov 2016 18:08:58 -0800

Chicago Bears QB Matt Barkley has impressed the coaching staff with his poise and intelligence, but offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said it has been a challenge to build a game plan Barkley will be comfortable with for Week 12 against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: As if making his first start of the year wasn't tough enough, Barkley will take over an offense missing several of its top offensive weapons. Avoid him in all formats and consider streaming Tennessee's defense.

Bears | Matt Barkley may start in Week 12

Wed, 23 Nov 2016 11:51:28 -0800

Chicago Bears QB Matt Barkley will be the starting quarterback in Week 12 if QB Jay Cutler (shoulder) is ruled out.

Fantasy Tip: Barkley has limited experience in the NFL and should not be used in any fantasy leagues. He likely will also hurt the fantasy value of the Bears receivers if he starts, but Jordan Howard should be an attractive starting option.
