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.
