QB Moving Truck Tracker

 

KEENUM, CASE - BUF

KEENUM, CASE

Quality backup acquitted himself well in a pair of 2021 starts, leading the Browns to victories in both games. Worth a roster spot in deep dynasty leagues.


Bridgewater, Teddy - MIA

Bridgewater, Teddy

Turned in an efficient if unspectacular season for the Panthers in 2020 but failed to unlock the Broncos' considerable pass-catching talent in 2021. Will now back up Tua Tagovailoa in Miami.


Watson, Deshaun - CLE

Watson, Deshaun

Deshaun Watson's a no-doubt top-five option when he gets back on the field. He was exactly that from 2019-2020, and there is no reason to think the 26-year old won't pick up where he left off. During his last season of play, Watson led the NFL in passing yards and yards per attempt (8.9). Just be wary that a 4-8 game suspension will likely be coming down for Watson. However, that would not shy me away from him or any of his teammates because fantasy leagues - both redraft and best ball tournaments - are won in November/December, not September.


Brissett, Jacoby - CLE

Brissett, Jacoby

Brissett could see time as the starting quarterback in Cleveland this year if Deshaun Watson is suspended. But if Watson isn't facing a suspension, then Brissett will remain on the sidelines for the Browns as their No. 2 quarterback, barring an injury. At the time of publication, we do not know the status for Watson heading into Week 1. If Brissett does get the chance to start for the Browns, he would be a good reserve in two-quarterback and Superflex leagues, and he could be worth a late-round pick in those formats. Last year, Brissett started five games for the Dolphins as the backup to Tua Tagovailoa, but he failed to score more than 19 Fantasy points in any outing. Brissett should not be drafted in one-quarterback leagues.


Trubisky, Mitch - PIT

Trubisky, Mitch

Trubisky has the chance to be the Steelers' starting quarterback this season, but he has to prove he's better than rookie Kenny Pickett. It's a quarterback battle to watch in training camp, and Trubisky would have sleeper appeal in two-quarterback and Superflex leagues if he wins the job. In one-quarterback leagues, Trubisky isn't worth drafting, but he could emerge as a waiver wire option during the year. And in two-quarterback and Superflex leagues, Trubisky would be a mid-round selection if he's the starter for Week 1. Last year, Trubisky was the backup to Josh Allen in Buffalo, but he spent the majority of the previous four seasons as the starter in Chicago. For three of those seasons, he averaged 18.5 Fantasy points per game or less, but he also averaged 22.1 points per game in his best season in 2018. He has potential as a Fantasy quarterback in Pittsburgh given the weapons there with Diontae Johnson, Chase Claypool, George Pickens, Najee Harris and Pat Freiermuth, so see what happens in his competition with Pickett. We could be talking about Trubisky as a sleeper if he's ahead of Pickett heading into Week 1.


Allen, Kyle - HOU

Allen, Kyle

Allen will battle Jeff Driskel for the right to back up Davis Mills in Houston. Even if Allen wins that battle and Mills misses time, Allen wouldn't be more than a desperation streamer in a league where you need to start multiple quarterbacks.


RYAN, MATT - IND

RYAN, MATT

After spending his entire 14-year NFL career with the Atlanta Falcons, Matt Ryan will be the starting quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts in his 15th season. Atlanta traded Matt Ryan to the Colts for a 2022 third-round pick. It's a major upgrade for Ryan's fantasy appeal that he was able to get out of Atlanta - a franchise that looks to be in a massive rebuild. Last season, Ryan lacked a strong supporting cast which contributed to his lackluster numbers. Calvin Ridley played five games, and the Falcons owned the league's second-worst blocking offensive line per PFF. Ryan faced pressure at the sixth-highest rate (40%). That won't be the case in Indianapolis with a better offensive line in place, a stable running game, and playmakers like Michael Pittman Jr. and Jonathan Taylor to boot. Ryan was also vastly underrated as a passer despite the ongoing turmoil ranking above average in many of PFF's sticky efficiency metrics in 2021: 12th in PFF passing grade from a clean pocket, second throwing at the intermediate level, and ninth throwing on early downs. Entering a Frank Reich system that prides itself on churning out play-action (5th) and screen passes (10th) will make Ryan's life a helluva lot easier than it was in Atlanta. Ryan ranked 33rd in screen throw rate and 12th in play-action rate in 2021. The new Colts quarterback is back on the fantasy QB2 radar for 2022.


WILSON, RUSSELL - DEN

WILSON, RUSSELL

Russell Wilson's weapons/supporting cast overall are pretty even going from Seattle to Denver, but Nathaniel Hackett calling the shots is an upgrade over Pete Carroll. Hackett's obviously had success with Aaron Rodgers that has translated into fantasy, so a top-five fantasy quarterback outcome is firmly in play with Wilson in 2022. After all, Wilson's long track record of efficient fantasy play is undeniable - he has finished among the top-six fantasy QBs five times since 2014. I like his chances of making it seven in 2022. Because Wilson is still among the league's elite passers when healthy. Before the finger derailed his season, Russ led the NFL in yards per attempt (10.4), passer rating (133.6) and passer rating from a clean pocket (130.9) before Week 5. Wilson also finished the season on a high note, averaging over 24 fantasy points per game in his last three contests. All in all, 2021 was a typical season for Wilson: peaks and valleys. He averaged 23 fantasy points per game from Weeks 1-4 and Weeks 16-18. In his six games post-injury, Wilson averaged an abysmal 13 fantasy points per game. Buy the inevitable 2022 dip on the future Hall of Fame quarterback in a new situation. That combined with a plethora of weapons in Denver, makes it very plausible he sees similar immediate success that other quarterbacks like Tom Brady and Matthew Stafford have had since changing teams late into their careers.


TAYLOR, TYROD - NYG

TAYLOR, TYROD

The Giants signed Taylor as the backup to Daniel Jones. Given Jones' inconsistent history, there's definitely a chance Taylor winds up getting a shot to pilot the offense at some point in 2022. That doesn't mean good things are going to happen -- Taylor had one start out of six with over 20 Fantasy points last year. And he's had 10 starts over his past four seasons, with only two registering 20 or more points. You'd have to be pretty desperate in a two-QB league to spend a draft pick on Taylor as long as Jones is upright.


SIEMIAN, TREVOR - CHI

SIEMIAN, TREVOR

Siemian is expected to be the backup quarterback behind Justin Fields in Chicago. Siemian has proven to be a serviceable thrower throughout his time in the league, but he's never been a quality Fantasy option and certainly would remain unexciting if he found playing time with the Bears. Siemian is no better than a late-round pick in two-QB leagues.


Mariota, Marcus - ATL

Mariota, Marcus

The former No. 2 overall draft pick is being penciled in as The Falcons' Week 1 starter, though he'll have to fend off rookie Desmond Ridder. Mariota is a nimble runner, but his passing ability leaves his employers wanting more. Mariota turns 29 in October, so it's probably too late to dream of vast untapped upside.


DALTON, ANDY - NO

DALTON, ANDY

Dalton moves over from Chicago to New Orleans, where his path to Fantasy relevance will only come if Jameis Winston gets injured or struggles. If Dalton were to find playing time, he'd be a low-end QB2 option. No one's drafting him in August or September.


Lock, Drew - SEA

Lock, Drew

Three seasons' worth of auditions have gone poorly, but it appears he'll get another in Seattle after being included in part of the package that sent Russell Wilson to Denver. We've seen too few encouraging signs to believe that Lock can still turn into a useful fantasy asset.
