Ian Book struggles in first NFL start

Saints QB Ian Book completed 12-of-20 passes for 135 scoreless yards and two interceptions in Monday night's Week 16 loss to the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

Book looked like everything but an NFL starting quarterback on Monday night. While he did face one of the hottest defenses in the NFL, it looked like a struggle to throw for those 135 yards. Book will start in Week 17 if Taysom Hill or Trevor Siemian can not return.

Ian Book set to start for the Saints in Week 16 vs Miami Dolphins

Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Saints are expected to start rookie QB Ian Book in Week 16 vs the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

With fellow QB's Trevor Siemian and Taysom Hill being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list the Saints really didn't have all that many options at QB and Book is simply the next man up. This could serve as an early look of what the rookie QB is capable of but it also wouldn't be a shock to see New Orleans pretty conservative with how much they ask him to do. Given the lackluster pass catching weapons for the Saints, the game plan will likely prioritize the rushing attack along with quick and short passes. Book can not be relied upon as a fantasy option and more than anything probably raises the upside for RB Alvin Kamara and the Miami defense.

Ian Book selected No. 133 by the New Orleans Saints

The Saints have selected quarterback Ian Book with the 133rd pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

The Saints add to their QB room with the selection of Ian Book. Book had an impressive career at Notre Dame. Shifty behind the line of scrimmage, he was the winningest QB in school history. However, his size 6' and lack of top-end arm strength could hold him back in the NFL. He'll be in a great situation with a chance to learn under Sean Payton, behind Taysom Hill and Jameis Winston.
