TE - FA
Week 13 Outlook
The Detroit Lions have agreed to terms on a contract with TE Andrew Quarless. Quarless has been recently suspended two games by the NFL but is eligible to practice with the team according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Days following his suspension by the NFL, Quarless was signed by the Detroit Lions to add depth to their questionable tight end position. Quarless spent his entire five-year career with the Green Bay Packers where he had minimal outputs of fantasy production. With Eric Ebron and Brandon Pettigrew sidelined, Quarless will see immediate playing time in Detroit.
Free agent TE Andrew Quarless has been suspended for two games in 2016 for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.
Quarless is a five-year veteran in the NFL and has played his entire career with the Green Bay Packers. The free-agent tight end will be suspended for two games in 2016 and could be on the open free agent market to begin the upcoming campaign. Even if Quarless is signed, he will have minimal fantasy value this season.
By being place on the IR/designated for return, Quarless won't be eligible to return until Week 12. Quarless suffered an MCL sprain in the second quarter against the Chiefs on Monday night.
Quarless had very little fantasy value before, but not he has absolutely no value. Richard Rodgers was already the starting tight end for the Packers, and could see a few more targets per game.
Quarless was injured on Monday Night against the Chiefs. He was injured on a reception in the second quarter and did not return to the game. The early reports are that it is a knee injury.
Quarless doesn't really have any value as a tight end in fantasy until Aaron Rodgers proves he can get them the ball more. For now, Quarless should not be rostered.
