Matt Barkley brutal in Week 17 loss

Matt Barkley completed 18-of-35 pass attempts for 232 yards and two interceptions in the Bills' Week 17 loss to the Jets. Barkley rushed twice for negative-four yards and fumbled once.

Fantasy Impact

It is well established at this point that Barkley is not an NFL-starting caliber quarterback, and he's hardly even a viable backup in truth. Barkley has no fantasy appeal heading into the playoffs or the 2020 season.

Matt Barkley strong in preseason win

Matt Barkley completed 12-of-14 pass attempts for 142 yards and a touchdown in the Bills' preseason win over the Lions. He rushed once for three yards as well.

Fantasy Impact

Barkley had one of his best performances yet, but still has no hope of starting this year unless Josh Allen misses any time. He has no appeal in fantasy football even then, really.

Matt Barkley strong in preseason win

Matt Barkley completed 8-of-10 passes for 110 yards and a touchdown in the Bills' preseason win over the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

Barkley had a nice day, and was actually more efficient throwing than Josh Allen. However, Allen has complete job security, so Barkley won't be on the fantasy radar for 2019.

Matt Barkley delivers strong preseason opener

Matt Barkley completed 9-of-14 pass attempts for 126 yards and a touchdown in the preseason opener for the Bills. He also rushed once for no gain.

Fantasy Impact

Barkley had a solid outing and was surprisingly efficient. While he was playing in the absence of starters, it was still an encouraging performance. That said, there's really no league format where Barkley will be relevant, even if he gets any starts.

Matt Barkley signs two-year extension with Bills

Matt Barkley has signed a two-year extension with the Bills.

Fantasy Impact

This means that Barkley will continue to be Josh Allen's backup for the foreseeable future. Barkley played well enough in place of Allen this season, but he's no more than a backup for this team and won't have fantasy relevance unless Allen is injured.
