QB - FA
Week 17 Outlook
The 49ers have brought free-agent quarterback Luke Falk in for a workout on Friday morning.
Falk was waived by the Jets in October after appearing in three games (2 starts) for the injured Sam Darnold in 2019. The 49ers currently have Jimmy Garoppolo, Nick Mullens and CJ Beathard on their roster so it's likely they are just looking to add some more depth for training camp.
Luke Falk was waived by the Jets on Friday.
With Sam Darnold (illness) returning to action this weekend, the Jets decided to waive Falk and resign backup David Fales. If Falk clears waivers, he will likely return to the teams practice squad.
Luke Falk completed 15-of-26 pass attempts for 120 yards and two interceptions in the Jets' Week 5 loss to the Eagles. Falk also fumbled once.
Falk ended up in the negatives for fantasy purposes, which is worse than expected to put it mildly. Falk was never in the conversation for fantasy purposes, and faces a talented Cowboys defense next week that has not performed up to expectations yet this season. Let's just hope Sam Darnold is back, but if Falk is starting, he can only be used in desperation situations in 2QB leagues.
Luke Falk completed 12-of-22 pass attempts for 98 yards and one interception in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Patriots.
Not great, Bob. Falk didn't get anything going and the whole offense was a trainwreck in every sense of the word (except the literal once involving trains). Falk should be owned in 2QB leagues, but should be started only in absolute desperation situations.
Luke Falk entered Monday night's game against the Browns for Trevor Siemian in the second quarter and completed 20-of-25 pass attempts for 198 yards in the Jets' Week 2 loss to the Browns.
It was a rough night to be a quarterback for the New York Jets. Myles Garrett personally made a mockery of the Jets' newly-assembled offensive line, seemingly pressuring Falk on every pass attempt. To make matters worse, Falk was often restrained by conservative play-calling on the part of head coach Adam Gase. With Sam Darnold sidelined indefinitely, avoid all Jets not named Le'Veon Bell, especially given next week's matchup against a New England defense that has yet to give up a touchdown.
