Jets | NYJ would pass on Marcus Mariota?

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 22:12:48 -0700

If the New York Jets had a shot at Oregon QB Marcus Mariota with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft the latest buzz in league circles is that they would pass on the quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Surely the Jets couldn't believe Geno Smith is better than Mariota. It is likely all academic anyway, as Mariota is expected to go No. 2 overall. However, it would be interesting to see if the Jets really would go another way if the situation arose.

Browns | Cleveland covets Marcus Mariota

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 16:32:06 -0700

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota is receiving a lot of interest from the Cleveland Browns, and the Browns are looking to move up in the first round. The Browns have been in contact with most of the teams in the top 10 and have talked with the Washington Redskins over the past week. The Redskins have the fifth overall pick in the draft.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota is expected to be selected in one of the first few picks in the draft, so the Browns would have to make a significant jump up if they want a chance to add Mariota. Mariota likely would compete with Josh McCown and Johnny Manziel for the starting job during training camp but would not be more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season.

Eagles | Philly pursuing Marcus Mariota?

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 14:54:06 -0700

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota could be selected by the Philadelphia Eagles if the team could make trades with the Cleveland Browns and Tennessee Titans, according to one draft rumor. The rumor states the Eagles would trade QB Sam Bradford to the Browns for the 19th overall pick, then the Eagles would trade DT Fletcher Cox, LB Mychal Kendricks, the 19th overall pick and the 20th overall pick to the Titans for the second overall pick where they would select Mariota.

Fantasy Tip: There have been rumors that the Eagles will try to trade up in the first round for Mariota, but the team will need to move up significantly to have a chance at him. Mariota likely would have a good chance to win the starting job if he joins the Eagles, but would not be more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback at this point.

Jets | Looking to trade up in draft

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 10:27:16 -0700

New York Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan is prepared to explore the possibility of trading up in the 2015 NFL Draft next week, which will obviously fuel speculation that the Jets want to select Oregon QB Marcus Mariota. "We're going to reach out to every team ahead of us to gauge, to get a value for what they're looking for in compensation to move up in the draft," Maccagnan said. "That doesn't mean we're actually trying to go up and get a player, but you (see) what the market value is, basically." The Jets own the No. 6 overall pick in the draft, and it would cost them a lot to move up to No. 2, where the Tennessee Titans currently sit. The Jets have conducted private workouts with Mariota and have had a separate visit with him.

Browns | Cleveland GM talks Marcus Mariota

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 16:27:05 -0700

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota could be pursued by the Cleveland Browns, according to general manager Ray Farmer. Farmer said it is possible that the Browns could package their No. 12 and No. 19 overall picks to trade up for Mariota. "We think we know who he is, we think we know what he's capable of, we think we know where he would fit for us assuming that he was with us," Farmer said.

Fantasy Tip: The Browns and Mariota rumors will likely gain steam as the NFL Draft approaches in just one week. Mariota wouldn't have the best supporting cast around him, but he does have dual threat ability. Still, he shouldn’t be considered more than a backup fantasy quarterback.

Jets | New York hosts Marcus Mariota

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 14:25:46 -0700

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota visited the New York Jets April 4. Mariota worked out for the Jets five days prior to that meeting as well.

Fantasy Tip: It would seem that the Jets are seriously interested in Mariota. He would be an intriguing fantasy quarterback in an offense with Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker at wide receiver.

Browns | Cleveland aggressive on Marcus Mariota

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 06:36:25 -0700

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota is receiving the most attention from the Cleveland Browns, who are the front runners to land him, sources have led DraftInsider.net's Tony Pauline to believe. Last week, the Tennessee Titans' asking price for the No. 2 pick in the first round was the Browns' two first-round picks and a second-rounder. The Browns rejected the offer. The Browns may be willing to part with the first-rounders but want to keep the second-round pick to draft a receiver.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota would be a low-end QB2 in fantasy regardless of where he lands.

Rams | St. Louis hosts Marcus Mariota

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 15:17:58 -0700

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota worked out for the St. Louis Rams Thursday, April 16.

Fantasy Tip: Many experts expect Mariota to be taken by the Tennessee Titans with the No. 2 overall pick. A lot can happen within the next two weeks for that to change, however. Mariota should be given at least a year before being considered a fantasy starter, especially if he's with the Rams.

NFL | Marcus Mariota scores 33 on Wonderlic

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 06:08:57 -0700

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota reportedly scored a 33 on the Wonderlic aptitude test at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota is expected to be a high pick in the first round of the NFL Draft. He'll be worth a late flyer as a QB2 late in deep fantasy drafts.

Chargers | SD to trade up for Marcus Mariota?

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 21:04:12 -0700

University of Oregon QB Marcus Mariota worked out for the San Diego Chargers Tuesday, April 14, with head coach Mike McCoy, offensive coordinator Frank Reich, quarterbacks coach Nick Sirianni and several front office members in attendance, sources said. The Chargers pick No. 17 overall, and it would be highly unlikely a camp would allow its client to work out for a team that far back without a strong sense a trade up is a real possibility.

Fantasy Tip: If the Tampa Bay Buccaneers elect to pick Mariota No. 1 overall, then all of this is obviously a moot point. But if the Bucs choose Florida State’s Jameis Winston, Mariota would be there at No. 2 and the Tennessee Titans could be the trade partner for the Bolts. Mariota’s fantasy value is murky at this point, as he could be drafted and sit or he could be drafted to start immediately.
