Tarvaris Jackson Fantasy News

Seattle Times - [Full Article]

Seahawks QBs Terrelle Pryor and Tarvaris Jackson took turns guiding the No. 2 offense, with B.J. Daniels getting a series with the No. 1 offense.

Pryor seemed more erratic — a few really good plays but also some not-so-good.

Jackson was dependable. That may be Seattle’s choice at that spot and whether they want to keep two or three QBs — the consistency and dependability of Jackson versus the upside of Pryor. I think the preseason games will tell a lot there.

Raiders trade Terrelle Pryor to the Seahawks, per league source.

Fantasy Impact:

Pryor fits in as the #2 or #3 QB, probably at #3 with Tarvaris Jackson already in Seattle. This is an interesting move by the Seahawks. Pryor is a terrific athlete and the team is hoping to mold him into a capable backup to Russell Wilson.

Once the team landed QB E.J. Manuel, the Bills had accomplished a prime objective. "Our goal coming in was to bring in another bell-cow quarterback to compete for the job [with newly signed Kevin Kolb and holdover Tarvaris Jackson], and we did that with E.J.," CEO Russ Brandon said. "Then we added some new tools in the toolbox."

Fantasy Impact:

It sounds as if Manuel will compete to start for the Bills.

Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's status appeared secure last month, when new coach Doug Marrone announced he informed Fitzpatrick and newly re-signed backup Tarvaris Jackson that he intends to have both compete for the starting job this offseason.

The Bills' message was less definitive a little more than a week later at the NFL combine in Indianapolis. That's where both GM Buddy Nix and team president Russ Brandon were evasive when discussing Fitzpatrick.

Barring a Seahawks QB getting hurt this week, look for Tarvaris Jackson to be shopped.

Fantasy Impact:

With Matt Flynn set to get his second straight start, it appears that is his job to lose.

Bucky Brooks of NFL.com on the Seattle QB competition:

The Seahawks recently announced that QB Matt Flynn will start the first game of the preseason, and I fully expect him to have that job when the regular season opens. He looked completely comfortable directing the offense, displaying superb accuracy and ball placement in drills. I was impressed with Flynn's movement skills within the pocket during 11-on-11 drills, as well as his ability to extend plays with his feet. He repeatedly connected on deep throws after eluding pressure; that element of his game could enhance the Seahawks' offense. Veteran Tarvaris Jackson and rookie Russell Wilson certainly had their moments during camp, but the job seems like Flynn's to lose at this point.

Tony Softli, a former personnel executive for the Panthers and Rams, suggests that Seahawks rookie QB Russell Wilson will eventually win the starting job over Matt Flynn and Tarvaris Jackson.

"I think that once he picks up this offense he'll be ahead of Flynn not only athletically but [in terms of] positional attributes as well," Softli said on the air with ESPN's John Clayton. "I like what Flynn brings to the table because he does have some experience, and I think it's going to be a good competition between the two, but when it's all said and done I think Wilson will be the guy."

The Tacoma News Tribune - [Full Article]

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said that the QB some league observers believe could be released at the end of training camp remains a nose ahead of the rest by virtue of his experience – incumbent starter Tarvaris Jackson.

Carroll points to the fact that Jackson showed toughness finishing 7-7 as Seattle’s starter last season while playing with a partially torn pectoral muscle – including a 5-3 record in the final eight games of year – as the reason he’s first man up with the starters.

Matt Flynn and Russell Wilson will continue to compete for the starting job.
