The Jets will release QB Tim Boyle, according to CBS Sports' Josina Anderson. QB Brett Rypien is being signed off the Seahawks' practice squad in a corresponding move. We'll see who the Jets toss under center for this weekend's game vs. the Texans, but the passing game will continue to stink regardless.

The Jets' offense was again putrid in Week 13's loss vs. the Falcons. The team benched QB Tim Boyle in the contest and has now moved on to its fourth signal-caller of the year, Trevor Siemian. Unfortunately, RB Breece Hall continues to be hamstrung by these poor circumstances. The second-year back posted 13 carries for 16 rushing yards on Sunday and only managed to bail out fantasy managers in PPR leagues by securing 6 catches for 29 yards. The Jets' remaining schedule isn't scary (18th RB strength of schedule per our adjusted fantasy points allowed), but the dismal offense relegates Hall to mid-to-low-end RB2 status from here on out.

Jets QB Tim Boyle will start next weekend's game vs. the Falcons, HC Robert Saleh said Saturday. Why? We're not sure. Boyle was predictably bad in Friday's loss to the Dolphins, throwing for 179 yards, one TD, and two INTs. He was sacked seven times. Boyle at least connected with WR Garrett Wilson on seven of 10 attempts for 44 yards and a score. Volume will keep Wilson in the WR2/3 mix for Week 13.

On Monday, multiple reports confirmed that the Jets will start QB Tim Boyle in Week 12 vs. the Dolphins. The struggling Zach Wilson will officially hit the bench after being pulled late in the third quarter of Sunday's 32-6 blowout loss to the Bills. Should this be the last we see of Wilson in 2023, he'll have finished the season with 1,944 passing yards (23rd among QBs), 6 TDs, and 7 INTs. This move doesn't change much for fantasy managers with how poorly the Jets' offense has played all season. Still, it's pretty difficult to argue that Wilson, the former second-overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft, holds any long-term dynasty value at this point. Those in deeper 2QB/superflex leagues could consider taking a stab at Boyle, but he's no more than a desperation fill-in play.

Jets QB Zach Wilson was benched in the third quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Bills for QB Tim Boyle. Wilson went 7 of 15 for 81 yards, one TD, and one INT, leading the Jets to just 106 yards of total offense. We'll see how Boyle fares the rest of the way -- and what the Jets do at QB going forward. It won't be pretty no matter what they decide.

The Lions have agreed to a 1-year, $2 million deal with QB Tim Boyle, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. That's not necessarily primary backup money, so we'll see what else Detroit elects to do at the position this offseason.

3:03pm EST 1/2/22

Lions QB Jared Goff (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Seahawks. QB Tim Boyle will make his 3rd start of the season. He was decent enough last week to trust WR Amon-Ra St. Brown and RB D’Andre Swift in Week 17 fantasy lineups.

Lions HC Dan Campbell called QB Jared Goff (knee) "doubtful" to play vs. the Seahawks on Sunday. That figures to mean another start for QB Tim Boyle, who was at least good enough to feed WR Amon-Ra St. Brown 9 catches on 11 targets for 91 yards and a score last week. St. Brown remains a solid Week 17 fantasy play.

The Lions on Monday activated QB Jared Goff from the COVID list. He should be ready to face the Seahawks on Sunday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Lions QB Tim Boyle is expected to start vs. the Falcons today. QB Jared Goff remains on the COVID list. Boyle threw for a whopping 77 yards on 3.35 yards per attempt back in Week 11 -- although, in his defense, that game was played in crappy weather. Still, Boyle is a significant downgrade for Detroit's offense today.

Lions QB Jared Goff landed on the COVID list Monday after testing positive. We'll see whether he has a chance to make it back for Sunday's game in Atlanta. If he doesn't, we'll likely get another Tim Boyle start.

Lions QB Jared Goff (oblique) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Bears. He was limited in practice all week. HC Dan Campbell said Tuesday that it's "leaning toward" Goff returning for this one. He's not a fantasy option but would be an upgrade over QB Tim Boyle for RB D'Andre Swift and TE T.J. Hockenson.

Lions HC Dan Campbell said it's "leaning toward" QB Jared Goff (oblique) starting Thursday's game vs. the Bears. Goff has been Goff this season -- but he's significantly better than Tim Boyle. His return would be good news for RB D'Andre Swift and TE T.J. Hockenson.

Lions QB Jared Goff (oblique) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Browns. QB Tim Boyle gets his 1st career start. We’re not expecting it to go well.

Lions QB Jared Goff (oblique) is listed as doubtful for Week 11. It's confirmation that QB Tim Boyle will make his first career start vs. the Browns on Sunday. Fire up the Cleveland DST.

Lions QB Tim Boyle is expected to start Sunday's game vs. the Browns, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. QB Jared Goff didn't practice all week with his oblique injury. Boyle has 4 regular-season pass attempts to his name. He went undrafted back in 2018 after completing 55.5% of his passes, averaging 5.6 yards per attempt and tossing 12 TDs vs. 26 INTs across 4 college seasons (3 at UConn, 1 at Eastern Kentucky). There's a good chance this is a total disaster for the Lions offense. Downgrade RB D'Andre Swift and TE T.J. Hockenson.
