Whisenhunt expects Leinart to be 'the guy'

QB Matt Leinart said he’d like to get a little more work in preseason games than maybe a starter normally would.

“I know you want to see a lot of guys get work but I think I fit in that mold.”

Head coach Ken Whisenhunt said he hasn’t made any decision on that, noting Anderson needs to get some reps with the starters too, just because both quarterbacks need to be ready.

“Let’s be clear,” Whisenhunt said. “My expectation is Matt is the guy.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Leinart barely projects as a backup at 4for4 this year and has an ADP of round 18, meaning he may not get drafted in a lot of leagues. There's some potential fantasy value there, though, if you're willing to take a shot later on. He's certainly not worth reaching a whole lot for, but is surrounded by some nice talent.
