Bailey Zappe preparing to start in Week 13

Bailey Zappe is preparing to start at quarterback for the Patriots in Week 13 versus the Los Angeles Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

Barring anything unexpected over the next two days of practice, Zappe will get the nod over Mac Jones this Sunday. It will be Zappe's first start of the season and the third of his career. He made two starts (four appearances) as a rookie last season, going 2-0 with a 70.7 percent completion rate, 781 yards, five touchdowns, and three interceptions. While almost nothing in New England inspires optimism at the moment, Zappe has exhibited a lively arm and could benefit from a favorable matchup versus Los Angeles. He ranks as a fringe top-24 fantasy option in Week 13.

Bailey Zappe takes majority of reps in media portion of practice Wednesday

Bailey Zappe was seen taking the majority of the quarterback reps in the media portion of practice on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

It was Zappe and Malik Cunningham seeing all the reps with Mac Jones not seeing any. Zappe took over for Jones in the second half of last Sunday's game against the Giants. It is possible Zappe starts this week against the Chargers.

Bailey Zappe enters in second half of Week 12 loss

Bailey Zappe completed 9-of-14 passes for 54 yards and one interception in the Patriots’ 10-7 loss to the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

After taking first-team reps during practice this week, Zappe entered the game to start the second half after the benching of Mac Jones. Neither quarterback looked great in the loss to the Giants, which leaves more questions than answers heading into a Week 13 matchup with the Chargers.

Bailey Zappe could rotate with Mac Jones Sunday

Patriots QB Bailey Zappe could rotate with Mac Jones and “is likely to be in the mix” per Mike Garafolo.

Fantasy Impact

Mac Jones is the expected starter on Sunday, but Zappe is expected to see action after splitting reps with Jones this week. Should Jones struggle early, fantasy managers should expect the Patriots to turn to Zappe earlier than expected. Both Jones and Zappe are risky fantasy options for Week 12.

Bailey Zappe will be backup QB Week 7

Bailey Zappe will be the backup quarterback for the Patriots in Week 7.

Fantasy Impact

Zappe was inactive in Week 6 and officially served as the emergency third quarterback, but this week, he's reassuming his backup role. Rookie Malik Cunningham is inactive, so Zappe will get the nod if starter Mac Jones gets injured or benched in a tough divisional matchup against the Bills.
