  Rams | Baker Mayfield claimed by Rams    Tue Dec 6, 04:05 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Baker Mayfield was claimed off waivers by the Los Angeles Rams on Tuesday, Dec. 6. They inherit the $1.35 million remaining on his contract.

Footballguys view: The Rams need all the help they can get at the quarterback position with Matthew Stafford on IR. Mayfield should be able to get some time as the team's starter when he gets up to speed in the offense. The Rams play on Thursday, so Bryce Perkins should be their starter in Week 14. After that, Mayfield could push for the top job for the rest of the season with the Rams.

  49ers | Josh Johnson inks one-year pact with San Fran    Tue Dec 6, 03:00 PM

Free-agent QB Josh Johnson (Broncos) signed a one-year undisclosed contract with the San Francisco 49ers on Tuesday, Dec. 6, officially marking his fourth stint with the team.

Footballguys view: Johnson has bounced around to about half the teams in the league, and he's already been with the 49ers. He knows the system already, and Johnson gives them veteran experience behind new starter Brock Purdy. If Purdy struggles, Johnson might get in some starts this season.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson dealing with PCL strain    Tue Dec 6, 01:24 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (knee) was diagnosed with a posterior collateral ligament sprain Tuesday, Dec. 6.

Footballguys view: Jackson could miss a few weeks with this injury. That means Tyler Huntley is going to start at least in Week 14, and then we'll see about things after that.

  Broncos | Denver adds QB to practice squad    Mon Dec 5, 04:24 PM

Free-agent QB Jarrett Guarantano (Cardinals) was signed to the practice squad of the Denver Broncos on Monday, Dec. 5.

Footballguys view: Guarantano (6-4, 230 pounds) played four years for the Tennessee Volunteers before being a graduate transfer to Washington State in 2021. A knee injury limited him to just two games with the Cougars last season, and Guarantano went undrafted earlier this year, signing with the Cardinals as a UDFA.

  Jets | Mike White to get starting nod again in Week 14    Mon Dec 5, 03:48 PM

New York Jets QB Mike White will draw another start at quarterback over Zach Wilson in Week 14 versus the Buffalo Bills, according to head coach Robert Saleh.

Footballguys view: White has been excellent at times, and he's been below average at times as the Jets' starter. That sounds about right. White will continue as the team's starter, but he'll need a good game against the Bills to keep his job. The Jets are fighting for a playoff spot and can't afford White's inconsistent play too much longer.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson not expected to go Week 14    Mon Dec 5, 02:39 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (knee) will be 'week-to-week' with the knee injury he suffered in Week 13 against the Denver Broncos, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: The Ravens won against the Broncos with Tyler Huntley under center. Huntley can do a lot of the things that Jackson can with his arm and legs. They also signed Brett Hundley on Monday to get another body in the quarterback room. Per Harbaugh, Week 14 against the Pittsburgh Steelers is trending on 'being less likely' for Jackson to suit up.

  NFL | Anthony Richardson turning pro    Mon Dec 5, 01:49 PM

University of Florida QB Anthony Richardson announced his intention to declare for the 2023 NFL Draft on Monday, Dec. 5.

Footballguys view: Richardson is still somewhat raw as a quarterback, and he needs more experience as a passer, but his physical gifts are off the charts. He's a fantastic athlete who can make defenses pay with his arm and his legs. In 12 games this season, Richardson had 2,549 yards passing with 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He also added in 103 rushing attempts for 654 yards and nine touchdowns.

  Ravens | Brett Hundley finds a home with Baltimore    Mon Dec 5, 01:13 PM

Free-agent QB Brett Hundley (Saints) reportedly signed an undisclosed contract with the Baltimore Ravens on Monday, Dec. 5.

Footballguys view: Hundley is on board with the Ravens while Lamar Jackson is banged up. Jackson went down with a knee injury against the Broncos on Sunday, and Tyler Huntley took over as the starter. Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said Jackson is unlikely to play in Week 14 against the Steelers.

  Browns | CAR on hook for fifth-round pick    Mon Dec 5, 11:52 AM

Former Carolina Panthers QB Baker Mayfield's trade from the Cleveland Browns included a conditional draft pick going to the Browns from the Panthers.

Footballguys view: They'll gladly pay that price, and they've mutually agreed to part ways with Mayfield after a disastrous 2022 season. The pick could have been a fourth-round pick, based on playing time, but it has locked in as a fifth-round pick after his release Monday, Dec. 5.

  Panthers | Baker Mayfield to be released    Mon Dec 5, 08:58 AM

Carolina Panthers QB Baker Mayfield will be released Monday, Dec. 5.

Footballguys view: This is being reported as a 'mutual agreement' between the two sides. Mayfield was acquired from the Browns over the summer, but injuries and bad play bounced him from the starting lineup. Now, Mayfield will look for a new team. The 49ers lost Jimmy Garoppolo to a season-ending foot injury, so they might be interested in the former no.1 overall pick to come in and compete with Brock Purdy and Josh Johnson.

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones went 25-for-31 for 200 yards and one touchdown against the Washington Commanders in Week 13. He also rushed for 71 yards on 12 carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Jones performance was remarkable considering how little he has to work with in the passing game. He actually outgained Saquon Barkley as a rusher and put up a very good fantasy result for anyone who depended on him. Next week vs. the Eagles brings the toughest matchup for quarterbacks in the league, so he's not a great streaming option.

Washington Commanders QB Taylor Heinicke went 27-for-41 for 275 yards and two touchdowns against the New York Giants in Week 13.

Footballguys view: Heinicke had his best game as a passer this year even though it didn't result in a win. He was able to do more than just target Terry McLaurin and should have QB2 value in 2QB/Superflex leagues after the bye when he faces the Giants again.

Houston Texans QB Kyle Allen completed 20-of-39 passes for 201 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns, while he ran twice for just one yard. Allen also fumbled twice, losing one of them.

Footballguys view: Allen was markedly worse than Davis Mills, and you have to wonder if we will see Mills again vs. Dallas next week. As long as Allen is out there, you'll want to start the defense facing him.

  Bears | Justin Field posts 325 total yards    Sun Dec 4, 05:49 PM

Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields went 20-for-25 for 254 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions against the Green Bay Packers in Week 13. He also rushed for 71 yards and one touchdown on six carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Fields wasn't restricted as a runner and ripped off a 55-yard score to show that he is still too much for defenses to handle for an entire game. He was a very efficient passer even with Chase Claypool leaving due to injury. If Fields starts after the bye, he'll be a must start.

  Browns | Deshaun Watson doesn't do much in debut    Sun Dec 4, 05:36 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Deshaun Watson completed 12-of-22 passes for 131 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Week 13 against the Houston Texans in his regular-season debut after an 11-game suspension. He also rushed seven times for 21 yards.

Footballguys view: Watson was as bad as his numbers look, but it didn't matter on this standout day for the Browns D/ST, which accounted for all three touchdowns. The Bengals are up next, but unless you really don't like your option at quarterback, you should probably wait until we see Watson return to form before trusting him in your lineup.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers finishes with 182 yards    Sun Dec 4, 05:20 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers went 18-for-31 for 182 yards and one touchdown against the Chicago Bears in Week 13.

Footballguys view: Rodgers didn't own the Bears defense, but he was able to move the offense enough to get the win. The Packers are out of NFC North contention, but they aren't eliminated from a wild card berth (yet) going into the bye, so we could see Rodgers in Week 15. He's not an essential hold for the fantasy playoffs.

  Ravens | Tyler Huntley doesn't do much in relief    Sun Dec 4, 04:48 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Tyler Huntley completed 27-of-32 passes for 187 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Week 13 against the Denver Broncos, coming on for the injured QB Lamar Jackson. He also had 10 rushes for a team-high 41 yards and a touchdown.

Footballguys view: Huntley was accurate in the short passing game and he was able to score on the ground to create some hopes of a being a viable fantasy QB1 like he was last year while Lamar Jackson sat. Jackson is almost certainly out for the game against the Steelers, so consider Huntley a boom/bust play that is certainly worth a pickup, if only to block your competition.
