Fantasy football waiver wire, Week 15: Andrew Quarless emerges as Packers tight end
Green Bay Packers tight end Andrew Quarless caught three passes for 52 yards in the win over the Atlanta Falcons on “Monday Night Football”. We bring you the fantasy implications.
Green Bay Packers tight end Andrew Quarless caught three passes for 52 yards in the Week 14 win over the Atlanta Falcons. With so many receiving options, the Packers aren’t using their tight ends like they have in the past, but for now it appears Quarless has emerged from the pack to earn quarterback Aaron Rodgers‘ trust.
This game initially was all Packers but the Atlanta Falcons mounted a comeback effort in the second half. Quarless snagged all four of his targets, which all came in the first quarter of the game. Rodgers turned to Eddie Lacy, Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and Davante Adams in the second half as his primary receiving options.
Fantasy impact: Quarless possibly emerging from the tight end pack is a situation that bears watching, but right now he isn’t worth a stash even in deep leagues. Quarless is only averaging 20.6 yards per game right now and has three receiving touchdowns on the year. In their Week 15 matchup, the Packers face the Buffalo Bills, who are giving up the sixth least fantasy points to tight ends.
