Charlie Whitehurst Fantasy News

Tuesday, April 1, 2014, 8:44pm - [Full Article]

Guys like Curtis Painter, Charlie Whitehurst, Luke McCown and Derek Anderson found work, while free agent Josh Freeman is wondering what happened to his once-promising career.

The Oakland Raiders were Freeman's best bet before free agency, but they preferred Matt Schaub. Freeman might have to wait until after the draft to find a team.

Fantasy Impact:

Last year at this time Freeman was poised for a big year but it obviously never panned out.

Nashville Tennessean - [Full Article]

Barring a setback, Jake Locker will be the starter at QB for the Titans. Former Chargers backup Charlie Whitehurst replaces Ryan Fitzpatrick. Tyler Wilson is under contract. Rusty Smith is a free agent.

The Titans are unlikely to pick up the option year on Locker's contract, so this is probably his make-or-break season. If he makes great strides, the Titans will try to re-sign him to an extension, but they need to protect themselves by developing another quarterback.

Fantasy Impact:

Locker began to show promise last year but got hurt. The author thinks the Titans could take a QB later in the draft, but either way, this will be a key year for Locker.

Again, the Titans are expected to release QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to clear way for Charlie Whitehurst. Has a $500,000 roster bonus due in coming days.

Fantasy Impact:

Fitzpatrick is a solid real-world backup and spot starter, so he probably won't have a tough time finding a new home.

The Titans have agreed to a 2-year deal with QB Charlie Whitehurst.

Vincent Brown "shines" in camp
Friday, July 26, 2013, 11:56am

San Diego Union-Tribune - [Full Article]

Receiver Vincent Brown has a knack for pulling away while deep into a route. He showed it at San Diego State, as an NFL rookie, in training camp last year -- and in the camp opener on Thursday. Brown ran a fly pattern down the right sideline with cornerback Johnny Patrick stride for stride as Charlie Whitehurst aimed a pass about 15 yards ahead of them. Brown then ran away from Patrick, reached out and caught the ball before safety Jahleel Addae arrived.

Fantasy Impact:

Brown has been making noise all offseason and his ADP has risen into the 12th round. He'd make a nice handcuff for Danario Alexander owners.

According to beat writer Kevin Acee of U-T San Diego, Chargers WR Vincent Brown might be available for the second half of the regular season. Brown was carted off the field after catching an 18-yard touchdown pass from Charlie Whitehurst during San Diego’s preseason victory over the Cowboys on Saturday.

Norv Turner said Chargers QB Charlie Whitehurst has knee strain. "Probably looking at a couple weeks."

Fantasy Impact:

The team has signed QB Kyle Boller.

Backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst stood on the sideline, his left knee wrapped in ice.

Whitehurst would downplay his injury afterward, but there was enough concern that the Chargers began making calls around the league, sending feelers to potential replacements, sources said.

Billy Volek naturally jumps out as possible candidate. He spent the past five years as a San Diego backup and remains a free agent after his March release.

Charlie Whitehurst set to start Week 7
Friday, October 21, 2011, 1:01pm - [Full Article]

Charlie Whitehurst appears to be Seattle's starting quarterback for Sunday's game in Cleveland. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll gave us that indication during his visit on 97.3 KIRO FM's Seattle Morning News.

"Charlie's ready to go, and as far as I'm concerned he's starting the football game, unless something turns with Tarvaris here in the next couple days," said Carroll.

Jackson suffered a high-grade strain of his right pectoral in Seattle's victory over the New York Giants two weeks ago. He has been making great improvement according to coach Carroll.

"Tarvaris has been throwing the football in controlled routes. He's closer than the doctors would have thought he could be this quickly," Carroll emphasized. "We've tried to be careful with him as he's coming back."

Fantasy Impact:

The Browns aren't a great matchup for Whitehurst, but they'll be without CB Joe Haden, which should help.

Seahawks QB Tarvaris Jackson won't practice this week. Charlie Whitehurst will work with first-unit offense.

Fantasy Impact:

The Seahawks have a bye this week and will take on Cleveland in week 7.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll did not, however, consider making a change at quarterback to Charlie Whitehurst.

"It had nothing to do with the quarterback spot," Carroll said. "I don't feel like that at all. We'll look at everything, but I don't feel like that at all."

Thursday, August 25, 2011, 4:11pm - [Full Article]

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll named Tarvaris Jackson his starter even before a snap was taken in training camp, but Charlie Whitehurst has actually looked more familiar this preseason with new coordinator Darrell Bevell's West Coast offense -- despite Jackson's history with Bevell in Minnesota. "Charlie's functioning beautifully,'' Carroll said this week. "He's farther along that I thought he would be this early. He's very comfortable with what's going on and it just makes us again stronger at the QB spot.''
