 Marcus Mariota, TEN (Bye: 4)

Outlook: Oregon passers have a history of not panning out in the NFL in recent years and the same cloud looms over the Titans’ quarterback of the future. On top of the nagging Joey Harrington comparisons are plenty of dismal rookie seasons from elite quarterback prospects. For this reason, Mariota will likely find himself as a fantasy backup in the majority of leagues. Then again, the hype machine continues to be a dominating factor to fantasy football’s preseason. The Titans are not a horrible destination for Mariota to land. The trio of Kendall Wright, Justin Hunter and Harry Douglas offers plenty of all-around talent with Delanie Walker emerging as a late-blooming tight end. The backfield situation could be better, but where the rushing attack fails the opportunity for more passing begins. Mariota may be another average Duck in the NFL, or he could be the next Dan Fouts. For 2015, he’ll likely be neither, seeing his share of ups and downs being used primarily as a QB2 in the fantasy game. Zach Mettenberger figures to take another step forward as the team’s backup quarterback. He has more upside than most second-string quarterbacks, but rookies don’t always pan out. Mettenberger would be worth a flyer if called into duty, but his best fantasy season isn’t likely to happen with the Titans.


 Josh McCown, CLE (Bye: 11)

2015 (Projected)CLE 223 385 2,654 13 11 20 95 1 200.2  

Outlook: The Cleveland offense might very well be the black hole of fantasy production in 2015. Leading the way is the very undynamic duo of McCown and Manziel. In McCown you have a career back-up who is on his seventh team in 12 years. With Manziel you have a walking punchline that in serious danger of flaming out of the NFL in only his second year.

McCown turned an eight-game stretch with the Bears in 2013 into a big contract with the Bucs, but while in Tampa, displayed the mistake prone tendencies and inaccuracy that has made him a second and third stringer. I might be a little more bullish on McCown if he had Josh Gordon, but as it stands, Gordon will be catching as many passes in the NFL this year as I will, and the rest of the receivers in Cleveland are castoffs or possession types that won’t make many plays down the field. Even with Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson in Tampa, McCown completed only 56% of his passes and threw three more interceptions than touchdowns. I think Cleveland’s defense and run game will be great, leaving the passing game to be very vanilla and safe, meaning McCown won’t have the luxury of volume to help his stats. His starting spot is tenuous at best with Manziel behind him, so even in two quarterback leagues I wouldn’t give McCown much of a serious consideration.

Outlook: Another ACL injury ended Carson Palmer’s 2014 season early, leaving him as the No. 31 quarterback for the season. However, the truth is Palmer is being underrated, as he is currently going undrafted in most drafts, in the early-to-mid 20s among quarterbacks. With Palmer being a relatively immobile quarterback to begin with, the now fully repaired ACL shouldn’t be too much of a problem. It’s also worth noting that Palmer has been through this injury in the past and it did not have a dramatic impact on his on-field ability. He’s now 35 years old so he’s definitely nearing the end of his career, but fantasy owners, particularly in redraft leagues, would be wise not to forget about the veteran passer late in their drafts.

Palmer has thrown for over 4,000 yards in each of his past two full seasons and was well on pace to hit that number again in 2014 before the injury. His biggest downfall has typically been throwing too many interceptions, along with being a non-factor in the running game. Palmer threw 22 interceptions in his first season as a Cardinal back in 2013 and he has thrown 15 or more in five of the nine seasons in which he has played at least 10 games. On the bright side, Palmer had actually drastically cut down on his mistakes through the first six games of 2014. His three interceptions were definitely acceptable and his 11 touchdowns would have put him on pace for 29 on the year -- a number that would have put him in the top 10 at the position. With the Cardinals offense not drastically changing, look for Palmer to put up solid numbers again this season, especially if he can find the chemistry again with his young wideout John Brown. He’s not the most exciting quarterback on the board, but given his ADP, there’s a great chance he’ll give you a positive return this season.
