49ers | San Francisco interested in Matt Schaub?

Sun, 05 Feb 2017 08:03:50 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Schaub could be of interest to the San Francisco 49ers if offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan joins the organization as their new head coach, according to multiple sources. However, it is uncertain if Schaub would be used as a starter, backup or bridge to a future quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Schaub, who will turn 36 before the start of the 2017 campaign, has only started two games over the last three seasons and should not be viewed as a viable option in any fantasy format at this stage of his career, even if he does win San Francisco's starting job.

Falcons | Matt Ryan plays one snap

Thu, 01 Sep 2016 18:26:35 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan played one snap in the preseason finale against the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday, Sept. 1, before being replaced by QB Matt Schaub.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan finished fifth in passing yards last season, but Atlanta's inability to finish off drives resulted in his lowest touchdown total since his rookie season. He is a potential QB2 candidate, and he could still be on the board later in drafts.

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Schaub completed 10 of his 15 passes for 179 yards in a 23-17 win over the Washington Redskins in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Schaub left no doubt he will be Matt Ryan's backup, but he would need Ryan to miss time to even have a shot at fantasy relevancy.

Falcons | Matt Schaub impressing coaches

Tue, 02 Aug 2016 10:29:23 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Schaub has impressed Falcons head coach Dan Quinn with his coolness under pressure. "He's also got a real coolness about him," Quinn said. "When the pressure's on, he kind of looks at it and smiles and says alright here's what we're going to do, and that's ensuring feeling know that that's an important job for us. We couldn't be more thrilled that Matt's here with us."

Fantasy Tip: As a backup to Matt Ryan, Schaub has no fantasy worth. Quinn must not have watched any of Schaub's notorious Pick 6 plays through the years. ...

Ravens | Baltimore non-committal on QB

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 13:51:12 -0800

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said he isn't naming a starting quarterback for Week 15 against the Kansas City Chiefs Friday, Dec. 18, even though QB Matt Schaub (chest) is listed as probable. QB Jimmy Clausen is another option to start against the Chiefs. Clausen took at least half of practice repetitions both Wednesday, Dec. 16, and Thursday, Dec. 17, according to offensive coordinator Marc Trestman. Harbaugh said Schaub has a chance to be 100% healthy by Sunday, Dec. 20. It's highly unlikely that QB Ryan Mallett will see playing time Sunday after being signed this week.

Fantasy Tip: Either way you slice it, neither Baltimore quarterback is worth starting on FantasyScore as a deep sleeper against a surging Chiefs defense.
