Jaguars QB Mike Glennon will start Sunday's game against the Bears. Now in control of the #1 pick of this spring's draft, Jacksonville just might be trying to lose out. Glennon isn't a fantasy option and is a downgrade for the rest of the offense.
Jaguars HC Doug Marrone announced Monday at his press conference that he'll start QB Gardner Minshew against the Ravens in Week 15. Minshew relieved Mike Glennon in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's loss to the Titans but posted only pedestrian numbers. He completed 18 of 31 passes (58%) for 178 yards (5.7 per attempt), 1 TD and 0 INTs. Baltimore actually rates as only a slightly tougher-than-average scoring matchup for fantasy QBs on the season -- both by raw fantasy points allowed and our Strength-of-Schedule formula -- but we're certainly not chasing Minshew for Week 15 fantasy lineups. The Ravens will bring a tougher defense than the Titans did last week, especially in the 2nd half of a blowout Tennessee win.
The Jaguars benched QB Mike Glennon in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Titans. He went 13 of 23 for 85 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT. QB Gardner Minshew has entered for Jacksonville.
The Jaguars will start QB Mike Glennon this Sunday at Minnesota, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. That just confirms the expected after Glennon performed solidly in his Jacksonville debut vs. Cleveland. Glennon completed 57.1% of his passes for 235 yards and 2 TDs, despite missing WRs D.J. Chark and Chris Conley. Glennon gets another positive passing matchup vs. a weak set of Minnesota CBs, in a game that finds his team currently a 9.5-point underdog. We still wouldn't look to use Glennon in 1-QB redraft leagues. One game of positive production vs. a depleted Cleveland defense -- missing DE Myles Garrett, CB Denzel Ward and S Ronnie Harrison (after the 1st play) -- isn't enough to inspire confidence as we get near (or into) fantasy playoffs.
Jaguars QB Mike Glennon will start against the Browns this weekend, HC Doug Marrone announced on Wednesday. QB Gardner Minshew evidently isn't ready to return from his thumb injury, and the Jags have seen enough of QB Jake Luton. Glennon at least has 801 NFL pass attempts under his belt, completing 61% and averaging 6.4 yards per attempt. He's not a Week 12 fantasy option but should be an upgrade over Luton.
Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew (thumb) is not expected to play against the Texans next Sunday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Veteran Mike Glennon and rookie Jake Luton will reportedly compete for the Week 9 starting job in practice. Neither guy will be a bankable fantasy play, despite the plus matchup. It's unclear if Jacksonville will go back to Minshew once he's healthy.
X-rays this week revealed that Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew has multiple fractures and a strained ligament in his right (throwing) thumb, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Minshew has reportedly been experiencing discomfort in that thumb since the Texans game back in Week 5. That at least partially explains his uneven play over the last 3 games. Minshew has a Week 8 bye, but it's unclear if he'll be able to play come Week 9. If not, Jacksonville would turn to either veteran Mike Glennon or 6th-round rookie Jake Luton.
Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew could be benched as early as today's game against the Chargers if he continues to struggle, NFL Network reports. Minshew has completed 67.5% of his passes and tossed 11 TDs through 6 games. But he's also been picked off 5 times in his last 5 -- and the Jags have lost all 5 of those games. We'll see if Minshew can save his job today, but he's obviously a risky fantasy play. QB Mike Glennon is Jacksonville's backup.
Raiders QB Derek Carr was replaced by QB Mike Glennon late in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Jets. There's been no injury announced for Carr, so this looks like HC Jon Gruden just getting his starting QB out of a 34-3 game. We'll update Carr's status if we hear otherwise.
On the same day they reached a deal with QB Sam Bradford, the Cardinals also reportedly agreed on a contract with QB Mike Glennon. The very short-term starter in Chicago will be released once the 2018 league year begins Wednesday afternoon and then move to the desert to back up Bradford. The latter, of course, isn't a good bet to make it through the season healthy. Arizona also remains a strong candidate to draft a QB early this spring.
Bears QB Mike Glennon rebounded statistically in Saturday's 2nd preseason game, including a TD pass to WR Kendall Wright late in the 2nd quarter. But that followed a drive-killing, 1st-quarter INT in the red zone and another pass that should have been picked. Glennon finished 13-of-18 for 80 yards -- better than his 2-of-9 1st outing. Rookie QB Mitchell Trubisky, meanwhile, again followed #2 QB Mark Sanchez into the game. Trubisky completed 6 of 8 passes for 60 yards and a TD to Benny Cunningham. Trubisky also avoided an INT on a ball that should have been picked. We'll see if anything changes with the QB order in the "dress rehearsal" 3rd preseason game, but Chicago looks like it'll head into the year with a shaky Glennon under center.
Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky connected on 18 of 25 attempts for 166 yards, 1 TD and 0 INTs in his preseason debut against the Broncos on Thursday night. He added 38 yards on 3 carries -- a reminder of his underrated athleticism. All of Trubisky's work came with backups. QB Mike Glennon worked with the starters ... and completed 2 of 8 passes with a pick-6. A few more nights like this and Chicago's plan to redshirt Trubisky this season will go up in flames. We're expecting the rookie to make multiple starts this year.
The Bears' plan is to start QB Mike Glennon all season, according to insider Rich Campbell. It makes sense, at least in theory. Chicago is paying Glennon $18.5 million guaranteed, while rookie Mitchell Trubisky enters the league after making just 13 college starts. Campbell also insinuated that the 1st-rounder struggled in spring practices. Of course, the calls for the rook will be loud if Glennon struggles at all. We're still betting on Trubisky making starts this year, but he's not worth a roster spot in redraft leagues. (Neither is Glennon, outside of 2-QB leagues.)
Bears GM Ryan Pace did the obligatory on Friday, calling veteran QB Mike Glennon his team's starter. "Mitch is here to develop," Pace said of the man he traded up a spot in Thursday night's 1st round to secure. We buy this more than the Texans saying Tom Savage will start in 2017. Glennon has at least had some NFL success and will make $16 million this year. Trubisky is clearly Chicago's future, though, and we'd still bet on him making starts at some point this season.
The Bears traded up 1 spot to #2 overall to select North Carolina QB Mitchell Trubisky. The 22-year-old sat behind Marquise Williams in his first 2 years at Chapel Hill and has just 13 college starts under his belt — the fewest for any 1st-round QB in the last 10 years. He was impressive in 2016, though, completing 68% of his passes with 30 TDs and just 6 INTs. The film shows nice accuracy and plenty of arm strength. Trubisky is also a plus athlete, registering a 68th percentile SPARQ score. The inexperience is the biggest concern, especially considering North Carolina ran a shotgun-heavy scheme. In Chicago, he could sit a year behind QB Mike Glennon, who signed what's essentially a 1-year deal with the Bears in free agency. Trubisky is a strong favorite to be under center by 2018, when he figures to be throwing to WRs Kevin White and Cameron Meredith.
USA Today reports that the Bears have agreed to a 3-year deal with former Bucs QB Mike Glennon, worth $14.5 million per year. Glennon started 18 games over his 1st 2 years with Tampa Bay, including 13 games as a rookie. He tossed 29 TDs vs. 15 INTs over those 2 seasons. But then the Buccaneers drafted Jameis Winston 1st overall in 2015 and rendered Glennon no more than a backup. The money obviously casts Glennon as Chicago's starter for the foreseeable future. Moving from the Jay Cutler-Brian Hoyer-Matt Barkley combo of last year to Glennon doesn't look like a significant upgrade for Bears pass-catchers, though stabilizing the position can't hurt. The Bears are now expected to release Cutler, who will make for an interesting free agent.
The Bucs have released QB Josh McCown. The move saves them more than $4 million against the salary cap. McCown started 10 games last year, finishing as a top-12 QB in 4 different weeks. But his final numbers were ugly: a 56.3% completion rate with 11 TDs and 14 INTs. He hasn't had any NFL success outside of Marc Trestman's offense. Turning 36 in July, McCown is unlikely to land a starting job in 2015. The Bucs are left with Mike Glennon at QB for now but are widely expected to select Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota with the 1st pick of the draft.
