2013 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on Oct-21-2013 by Chris Weeks

Update (10/20): Schaub has struggled this season to the point where fans are now cheering when he gets hurt and chanting for Yates to replace him. In week 7 they got their wish as Schaub missed the game with a ankle injury and Case Keenum led the Texans into Kansas City. Once healthy, Schaub will take back the starting job, but will be nothing more than a backup at best for fantasy football owners.

Profile: There was once a time when Schaub was on every fantasy owner's rader. That time ended a couple of years ago when the Texans became a run, run and run it again offense. Schaub's numbers haven't been awful, but with the Texans' run focused offense it is hard for us to imagine him being top 5 quarterback quality.

Latest Update

Apr-19-14 Report: One way or another, QB Terrelle Pryor won't be a Raider by end of Monday

The Raiders have already said publicly that quarterback Terrelle Pryor won't be on their team this season. So, why haven't they just cut the cord already? Well, despite erasing all possible leverage through their words, the Raiders are still trying to trade Pryor for something. If they are unsuccessful in doing so over the next 48 hours, the Raiders will finally release him. That's what Alex Marvez of FOX Sports 1 reported Saturday. Monday is when the Raiders open their offseason program.

Fantasy Analysis:

Matt Schaub is locked in as Oakland's starting QB, and Matt McGloin is his backup right now. Pryor is in the final year of his contract and is owed just $705,000, but I can't imagine that a team is clamoring for his services so much so that it would give up something of value to get him. Pryor will find another place to play, no doubt. He is only 24 years old and is a special athlete even if he isn't a competent NFL quarterback. But I would be surprised if a trade is swung before Monday's self-imposed deadline.
Fantasy value? Uh, not right now.
