Outlook: Having been cut by the Bills in the offseason, Fitzpatrick joins the Titans in 2013 in a clear backup role behind Jake Locker. While Fitzpatrick played well at times during his stay in Buffalo, he suffered with his decision-making at key moments. Locker hasn't played well enough to be entrenched as the team's starter, so there is a chance Fitzpatrick will see the field at some point in 2013. If he does, he would be nothing more than a stopgap starter on your fantasy squad. ~ Dave Stringer

2013 (Projected)BAL 310 508 3,610 22 12 21 46 1 279.1  

Outlook: While Flacco may have added Super Bowl winning starting quarterback to his resume during the 2012 season, he has been a bit of a fantasy football tease over the past several seasons. Breakout seasons have been predicted for him but that has failed to materialize with Flacco failing to top 4,000 passing yards during his five-year career and managing a career-high 25 passing touchdowns back in 2010. With Anquan Boldin now in San Francisco and his spot being taken over by Jacoby Jones and an assortment of middling prospects, Flacco isnít headed towards that elusive breakout season in 2013. While he had a wonderful playoff run under the tutelage of Jim Caldwell, who took over for Cam Cameron with three games left in the regular season, you would have to be wearing rose colored glasses to take him as your QB1. Given the lack of receiving weapons in Baltimore, Flacco is a mid-tier QB2 this season. ~ Dave Stringer

Comment: Two key weapons for Flacco (Boldin & Pitta) haven't been adequately replaced. ~ Mike Krueger


 Matt Flynn, OAK (Bye: 7)
43
Height: 6’2”   Weight: 225   DOB: 1985-06-20   Age: 28
College: -   Draft: 2008 Round 7 (2)   Experience: 5

2013 (Projected)OAK 104 179 1,215 6 7 8 21 0 86.9  

Outlook: A sought-after free agent following his four-year run with the Packers, Flynn signed on in Seattle prior to the 2012 season with the expectation of starting at quarterback. Russell Wilson had other ideas. With the Raiders looking to clear salary cap room, they traded for Flynn and then jettisoned incumbent starter Carson Palmer off to Arizona. While Palmer wasn't spectacular in Oakland, you would be hard-pressed to find many who consider Flynn an upgrade. He may have looked good in a few games for the Packers with their wonderful array of offensive weapons, but in Oakland he will play behind a mediocre offensive line with an injury-prone running back, no true No. 1 wide receiver and major question marks at tight end. That doesn't sound like a recipe for fantasy success. We don't expect Terrelle Pryor or a rookie fourth-round pick to supplant Flynn on opening day, but there is certainly a chance that one of them will take over at some point in 2013. ~ Dave Stringer

Comment: The starting job is Flynn's to lose and it appears he's doing just that. Stay away. ~ Mike Krueger


 Nick Foles, PHI (Bye: 12)
37

2013 (Projected)PHI 59 100 689 4 3 4 9 0 51.4  

Outlook: The Eagles say they are going to give Foles a chance to compete with Michael Vick for the starting quarterback position, and there isn't any reason to doubt that. We just doubt Foles' ability to beat out Vick, and presumably the Eagles do as well, or else why draft Matt Barkley in the fourth round of this year's draft? Foles was serviceable as a six-game starter during his rookie season, throwing for 1,699 yards with six touchdowns and five interceptions. While his accuracy is decent, he doesn't move well in the pocket and he doesn't seem like a good fit in Chip Kelly's offense. Consider Foles as a stopgap measure if he ends in the starting lineup in Week 1 or if Vick gets injured once again in 2013. ~ Dave Stringer


 Josh Freeman, TB (Bye: 5)
14
Height: 6’6”   Weight: 248   DOB: 1988-01-13   Age: 26
College: Kansas State   Draft: 2009 Round 1 (17)   Experience: 4

2013 (Projected)TB 333 554 3,825 25 16 32 164 1 313.7  

Outlook: Entering his fifth year in the league, Freeman faces a make-it-or-break-it season in Tampa Bay. With the Buccaneers having failed to sign him to a long-term extension, Freeman will enter 2013 in the final season of his rookie contract with no guarantees that he will be back in Tampa Bay next year. While he topped 4,000 passing yards for the first time in 2012 and had a reasonably solid 27-17 touchdown-to-interception ratio, Freeman came apart as the season came to a close. He had a pair of four-interception games in the team's final three contests and threw just six touchdown passes in the Bucs final six games as Tampa Bay skidded to a 1-5 finish. One thing is certain and that is that Freeman has all of the physical tools necessary to be a complete NFL quarterback. While his accuracy was off in 2012 with a 54.8 completion percentage, he topped 60 percent in both the 2010 and 2011 seasons. His biggest issue is his poor decision-making, and that will need to be corrected if he wants to earn a big payday from Bucs management. Entering his second season in offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan's offense with his motivation high, Freeman should be considered an upper-tier QB2 with upside. ~ Dave Stringer


 Blaine Gabbert, JAC (Bye: 9)
33
Height: 6’5”   Weight: 235   DOB: 1989-10-15   Age: 24
College: Missouri   Draft: 2011 Round 1 (10)   Experience: 2
SeasonTeamGameComp Att Yard TD INTAtt Yard TDFFPtsFFPts/G

2013 (Projected)JAC 146 247 1,559 8 10 18 65 1 122.5  

Outlook: Entering his third year in the league after being taken in the first round of the 2011 draft, there are serious doubts as to whether Gabbert will ever emerge as a bona fide starting quarterback in Jacksonville. While the former Missouri signal caller has the athleticism required to succeed in the league, he lacks pocket presence, has displayed poor accuracy, doesn't step into all of his throws and often makes poor reads. Perhaps new offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch's offense will benefit Gabbert, with Fisch expected to rely on a heavy amount of runs to set play action. The truth of the matter, however, is that the Jaguars offense ran much more smoothly with Chad Henne under center after Gabbert was lost for the season with a shoulder injury in Week 11. At that point in the season, he had thrown just nine touchdowns, and that pretty much tells you all you need to know about his fantasy prospects for 2013. ~ Dave Stringer

Comment: QB competition alert: Gabbert will start Week 1 but has a hairline fracture in his thumb. ~ Mike Krueger

2013 (Projected)WAS 252 400 3,000 20 10 83 540 5 314.0  

Outlook: Sometimes trades work out for both teams. Washington head coach Mike Shanahan moved heaven and earth (okay, not quite, but three first-round picks and a second is close) in order to move up in last year's draft to select Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III, and Redskins fans weren't disappointed with the move. Not even after he tore his ACL in the Redskins playoff loss to the Seahawks. In RGIII, the Redskins have one of the game's most exciting players. As a passer, he hits his receivers in stride so they can rack up yards after the catch, he has a strong arm and can throw the deep ball, his pocket presence and mobility allows him to sidestep oncoming rushers, and he is adept on rollouts and when forced out of the pocket. His ability to run the ball also stresses defenses, freeing up space for the team's running backs. Then there's the downside. RGIII is as close to superhuman as they come, and he's just too young to know how valuable he is to the team. His willingness to learn when to be smart instead of going all out on every play is what will determine his longevity in the league. Is he ready to throttle it down a bit in 2013? It seems doubtful, but if he can and if he is ready on opening day (not a long shot by any means), he seems likely to improve on a rookie season in which he threw for 3,200 yards with 20 touchdowns and just five interceptions while completing 65.6 percent of his passes and running for 815 yards and seven touchdowns. If you're willing to accept the risk and get a solid backup QB, RGIII is your man. If not, let somebody else grab him. And as we all know, there is usually one owner in every league that loves the players getting hyped. RGIII is certainly one of those players. ~ Dave Stringer

Comment: Griffin (ACL, LCL) continues to progress and will start Week 1 but his injury history should be a major concern to fantasy owners. The chances of him completing a full season are small and as a result will keep him out of QB1 territory for me. It's all about risk-tolerance with RGIII as your QB1. Should you take the leap, Kirk Cousins as a handcuff or an early, mid-round pick of your QB2 is mandatory. RGIII is not expected to particiapte in any preseason games. ~ Mike Krueger

Outlook: In the “life isn't always fair” category, we present Chad Henne. Entering his third year in the league in 2011, Henne was attempting to solidify his hold on the Dolphins’ starting quarterback position, only to suffer a season ending shoulder injury after three solid outings. After joining the Jaguars in 2012 as Blaine Gabbert's backup, Henne took over under center in Week 11 and directed the offense much better than Gabbert had, despite the absence of running back Maurice Jones-Drew, Jacksonville's top offensive player. Henne's reward? A likely spot on the bench behind Gabbert once again in 2013, at least to open the season. ~ Dave Stringer

Comment: QB competition alert: Henne is the loser. ~ Mike Krueger
