  • Teams Likely To Move Up For QBs In 2024 Draft

    Headshot for Kirk Cousins

    For much of the 2023 football season, there was a clear 1-2 punch at the top of the list of 2024 draft eligible quarterbacks. It was also widely believed that this year’s crop would provide a good bit of depth throughout all stages of the draft. Both of those opinions appear to be up for […]

  • Bailey Zappe Picked Off Twice In Ugly Week 18 Loss

    Headshot for Bailey Zappe

    New England Patriots quarterback Bailey Zappe completed just 12 of 30 passes (40 percent) for 88 yards, zero touchdowns, and two interceptions during Sunday's loss to the New York Jets. He also rushed for 13 yards. Snow and wind contributed to a very shaky game for Zappe, who took over as the Patriots' starting quarterback during the second half of the season. He finishes 2023 having amassed 1,272 passing yards, seven total touchdowns, and nine turnovers. Key questions face the Patriots this offseason, especially at quarterback and head coach. Both Zappe and Mac Jones find themselves on the hot seat as the Patriots, who have clinched a top-three draft pick, could look to select a new signal-caller.

  • Bailey Zappe Can't Be Trusted In Week 18

    Headshot for Bailey Zappe

    New England Patriots quarterback Bailey Zappe remains off the fantasy radar for Week 18 versus the New York Jets. A variety of factors make Zappe an unappealing option ahead of Sunday's season finale. First of all, the Jets, despite enduring significant dysfunction this season, have a very strong secondary. New York is averaging the third-fewest fantasy points allowed per game in 2023, making it unlikely that Zappe, who has looked inconsistent through five starts, will have any fantasy relevance. Furthermore, the forecast for this game calls for heavy snow, rain, and wind, which makes it very difficult to execute a good passing attack. The odds are stacked against Zappe this week, keeping him in the QB3 tier for fantasy purposes.

  • Bailey Zappe Picked Off Three Times In Ugly Loss

    Headshot for Bailey Zappe

    New England Patriots quarterback Bailey Zappe completed 16 of 26 passes for 209 yards, zero touchdowns, and three interceptions during Sunday's loss to the Buffalo Bills. He also took three sacks but did manage to rush for 37 yards and a score. Just one week removed from a big outing versus the Denver Broncos, Zappe crumbled in a divisional matchup on the road. The 24-year-old is still in the developmental phase of his career, flashing potential at times but also showing key areas where he needs to improve. He'll be relegated to the QB3 tier in fantasy football ahead of next week's clash versus a dominant New York Jets defense.

  • Bailey Zappe Remains Tough To Trust In Week 17

    Headshot for Bailey Zappe

    New England Patriots quarterback Bailey Zappe is not a very reliable option for fantasy football ahead of Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills. On one hand, the 24-year-old has been solid over his last three starts, amassing six touchdowns and just two interceptions. He impressed with 256 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions during last Sunday's win over the Denver Broncos. However, he lacks rushing upside and has a somewhat difficult matchup on tap. Zappe does have the potential to be a high-end fantasy QB2, but he also has a very low floor, making him a risky option this week.

  • Bailey Zappe Leads Patriots To Week 16 Win

    Headshot for Bailey Zappe

    New England Patriots quarterback Bailey Zappe completed 25 of 33 passes for 256 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions during Sunday's victory over the Denver Broncos. He also took two sacks and lost one fumble. All in all, the young quarterback had a solid game, showing poise while leading several scoring drives en route to the come-from-behind victory. It's safe to say that he has the starting quarterback job locked up for the rest of the season and might even sneak into the fantasy QB2 tier next week against the Buffalo Bills.

  • Bailey Zappe Tough To Trust Versus Denver

    Headshot for Bailey Zappe

    New England Patriots quarterback Bailey Zappe is difficult to trust in most fantasy leagues ahead of Week 16 versus the Denver Broncos. Although the Broncos surrendered five passing touchdowns last week, that was against Jared Goff. Zappe represents a much softer opponent for Denver, and the young quarterback could struggle against a secondary anchored by Patrick Surtain II. Furthermore, the Patriots could rely on a heavy dose of run plays and short passes given how well Ezekiel Elliott has played lately (and how much the Broncos have struggled to defend opposing running backs). All in all, Zappe is a fringe top-24 fantasy option and should be avoided in most leagues.

  • Bailey Zappe Unimpressive In Week 15 Loss

    Headshot for Bailey Zappe

    New England Patriots quarterback Bailey Zappe completed 23 of 31 passes for 180 yards, one touchdown, and one interception during Sunday's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. He also added a two-yard rush. All in all, this was a massive step backward for Zappe after he threw for three touchdowns and led the Patriots to a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers just one week earlier. With that said, the Chiefs offer much stronger competition than the Steelers, so we can't be too surprised by Zappe's rough outing. He'll now prepare for Week 16 against a Denver Broncos defense that has shown flashes of potential but did surrender five passing touchdowns to Jared Goff this past Saturday.

  • Bailey Zappe Not A Reliable Option In Week 15

    Headshot for Bailey Zappe

    New England Patriots quarterback Bailey Zappe lacks fantasy appeal for Week 15 versus the Kansas City Chiefs. While he impressed to the tune of 240 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception during last Thursday's upset win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Chiefs represent a much tougher test. In fact, Kansas City has surrendered just 204.3 passing yards, 0.5 interceptions, and 17.2 fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks on a per-game basis this season. Zappe is off the fantasy radar as a QB3 this week. He can be left on waivers.

  • Bailey Zappe Throws For Three Touchdowns In Week 14 Win

    Headshot for Bailey Zappe

    New England Patriots quarterback Bailey Zappe completed 19 of 28 passes for 240 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception during Thursday's win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. He had one of the best games of his career, leading the underdog Patriots to just their third victory of 2023 (and their first since Week 7). This performance is all the more impressive when you consider that Zappe didn't have key offensive playmakers Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle), Demario Douglas (concussion), and DeVante Parker (knee) at his disposal. The Patriots will draw a tough matchup against the Chiefs in Week 15, but Zappe could remain on the fantasy radar as a low-end QB2 if New England falls behind early and has to pass a lot.

  • Bailey Zappe Off Fantasy Radar For Week 14

    Headshot for Bailey Zappe

    New England Patriots quarterback Bailey Zappe is not a reliable fantasy option for Week 14 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. While one could argue that he has been a slight upgrade over Mac Jones, he was still quite disappointing during his first start of the season last Sunday when he led zero scoring drives, tallied just 141 passing yards, and took five sacks. To make matters worse, Zappe won't have his top receiving threats this week. Demario Douglas (concussion) and Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) have already been ruled out, which is bad news for the passing game and the offense as a whole. Fantasy managers should avoid Zappe at all costs ahead of a game that is expected to be very low-scoring.

  • Bailey Zappe Expected To Start Thursday

    Headshot for Bailey Zappe

    When asked if he knows who is starting at quarterback for the Week 14 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night, New England Patriots signal-caller Bailey Zappe said, "Coach (Belichick) has made it pretty clear, but I'll let him announce it to everybody." Belichick usually doesn't divulge his game plans without having his arm twisted, so we may not get an official announcement from the team. But even though Zappe was unable to put any points on the board in his first start of 2023 in the Week 13 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, it looks like he's going to get another chance to lead the offense on a short week. Not only is Zappe a desperation low-end QB2, at best, in two-QB fantasy leagues, but the Patriots' offense is extremely beat up and will be without lead back Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle).
