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.

Eagles | Tim Tebow should make team

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 16:43:12 -0700

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles QB Tim Tebow continues to impress head coach Chip Kelly, and Tebow is expected to earn a spot on the active roster if he doesn't make any glaring errors over the rest of the preseason, according to a team source. Kelly has been impressed with Tebow's running ability and his improvement throwing the football. Tebow can become a valuable weapon with the new two-point rule and in short-yardage situations. QB Matt Barkley is available for trade. Tebow was 6-for-12 for 69 yards in the team's first preseason game last weekend, and he had four carries for 15 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Tebow will slot third on the quarterback depth chart behind Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez, so he won't be worth selecting in most fantasy leagues unless either Bradford or Sanchez go down with serious injuries.

Eagles | Mark Sanchez holding workouts

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 09:40:16 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez is hosting workouts in San Diego with teammates. RB Darren Sproles, RB Ryan Mathews, WR Jordan Matthews, QB Matt Barkley, QB/WR G.J. Kinne, WR Quron Pratt, WR Rasheed Bailey, WR Seyi Ajirotutu and TE Andrew Gleichert were in attendance.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez is likely to take a backseat once Sam Bradford returns to health, but he's not going to make it easy. Sanchez doesn't have as much upside as Bradford, but he'd be a midrange QB2 if he is able to nab the starting job.
