Eagles | Philly positioning for Marcus Mariota?

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 20:42:52 -0800

The Philadelphia Eagles might be in position to package several draft picks to move up and draft a franchise-caliber signal caller such as University of Oregon QB Marcus Mariota, especially after the team cleared plenty of cap room following the trade of RB LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: It's conjecture that is what head coach Chip Kelly is trying to do, but he has been trying to put the Oregon band back together in Philadelphia. He recruited Mariota, and it is hard to believe he isn't interested in getting the QB to run his offense in the NFL.

NFL | Former GM prefers Marcus Mariota

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 10:53:14 -0800

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota is probably a smarter long-term option for NFL teams than Florida State QB Jameis Winston is, in the opinion of NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota and Winston likely will be the first two quarterbacks selected in the 2015 NFL Draft, but it looks like Winston is a more likely candidate for the first overall pick. Neither quarterback should be considered as more than No. 2 fantasy quarterbacks next season if they win starting jobs.

Eagles | Eagles eyeing Marcus Mariota?

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 20:52:54 -0800

University of Oregon QB Marcus Mariota is a player the Philadelphia Eagles are willing to try to move up for in the 2015 NFL Draft, according to Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota's skill set should be a great fit for Chip Kelly's offense, but at this point, Philadelphia moving up to draft him is just speculation.

NFL | Marcus Mariota solid at combine

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 10:25:07 -0800

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota showed an easy throwing motion during the NFL Scouting Combine and also showed good deep-ball accuracy. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.52 seconds and recorded a 36-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-1 broad jump.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota is seen as one of the top two quarterbacks available in the draft this season and should be selected in the first round. It is not known if Mariota will be given the chance to compete for a starting job next season, but he likely would be considered as a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he does start.

NFL | Marcus Mariota talked with Chip Kelly

Sat, 21 Feb 2015 11:59:37 -0800

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota has spoken with Philadelphia Eagles head coach, and Mariota's former coach at Oregon, Chip Kelly. Kelly did not indicate that the Eagles had their eyes on Mariota in this year's draft.

Fantasy Tip: There is still plenty of time for the Mariota to Philadelphia rumors to gain steam with the connection between Kelly and his former quarterback. Mariota would probably have more fantasy value if he were to join the Eagles, but it's still too early to speculate one way or the other.

NFL | Marcus Mariota posts good 40 times

Sat, 21 Feb 2015 08:48:46 -0800

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota posted unofficial times of 4.52 seconds and 4.56 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota should be one of the first two quarterbacks selected in the draft and is a good bet to go in the first half of the first round. It is not known if he will have a chance to compete for a starting job but would not be more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he starts next season.

Browns | Marcus Mariota an option for Browns?

Fri, 20 Feb 2015 13:12:05 -0800

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota could be an option for the Cleveland Browns in this year's draft if they are willing to package their two first-round picks to move up to snag him, according to quarterback guru George Whitfield. Whitfield has worked with both Mariota and Browns QB Johnny Manziel. Both quarterbacks have also been coached extensively by Cleveland quarterbacks coach Kevin O'Connell. O'Connell could push for the team to move up and draft Mariota. Mariota said he'd welcome the chance to play for any NFL team, including the Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota is widely considered the second best pro-ready QB in this year's draft behind Jameis Winston. Wherever Mariota lands, he'll likely be in a QB competition in training camp. It'll be interesting to see whether he can move from a spread offense in college to a pro-style offense successfully. Mariota will be nothing more than a flier in very deep leagues as a QB2 in drafts this year if he wins a starting job somewhere.

NFL | Marcus Mariota talks weakness

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 17:12:41 -0800

Former Oregon QB Marcus Mariota said at the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine that he needs to work on calling plays in a huddle. The Ducks didn't huddle during his time with the team, and he hasn't done so since high school. Mariota would call out signals after the coaching staff held up signs on the sideline.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota, regardless of where he lands, has a long way to go before being fantasy-worthy in traditional setups.

NFL | Marcus Mariota weighs in at Combine

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 07:18:38 -0800

University of Oregon QB Marcus Mariota measured at 6-foot-3 3/4 and weighed 222 pounds at the NFL Scouting Combine Thursday, Feb. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota is in the discussion for a top-five selection in the 2015 NFL Draft. He'll likely be a mid-to-low QB2 in fantasy circles this season.

Titans | Haven't committed to Zach Mettenberger

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 00:04:54 -0800

Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger has the backing of the coaching staff, but they have not committed to him as the starter for 2015. General manager Ruston Webster said the team will fully consider QB Jameis Winston or QB Marcus Mariota.

Fantasy Tip: This sounds like a team that wants Mettenberger to stay as a backup. Mettenberger should be avoided as a starting option in most fantasy leagues unless he ends up with the starting job. If that is the case, Mettenberger projects as a QB2.
