Teddy Bridgewater survives roster cuts as Lions' QB2

According to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, veteran QB Teddy Bridgewater will be just one of two QBs on the Detroit Lions' active roster heading into 2023.

Fantasy Impact

Bridgewater is entering his 10th NFL season since being a first-round pick out of Louisville. He's found a role in the league post-injury as a bridge QB and a high-tier backup, averaging over 200 yards per game in his starts since then. He will serve as the team's lone backup option to QB Jared Goff with Nate Sudfeld on IR and Hendon Hooker on the NFI list.

Teddy Bridgewater agrees to deal with Lions

Free-agent Teddy Bridgewater has agreed to a deal with the Detroit Lions according to Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Impact

Bridgewater will immediately solidify the backup quarterback position for a Lions team receiving plenty of preseason buzz as the favorite to win the NFC North division. The veteran signal-caller’s signing was much needed with Nate Sudfeld and Hendon Hooker the only other options behind starting quarterback Jared Goff.

Teddy Bridgewater visits with Lions Monday

According to Ari Meirov of The 33rd Team, free-agent QB Teddy Bridgewater visited with the Detroit Lions on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Bridgewater spent his 2022 season as the backup QB to Tua Tagovailoa in Miami, starting a pair of games for the Dolphins in his absence. As he continues his path as a valuable backup quarterback, the Lions are visiting with the veteran. This likely has no dynasty effects on Hendon Hooker's outlook, who will likely redshirt the 2023 season. Behind QB Jared Goff, the Lions have Nate Sudfeld and rookie Adrian Martinez, showing the Lions could use a veteran backup in case of emergency.

Teddy Bridgewater (knee/finger) active; won't start Sunday

Teddy Bridgewater (knee/finger) is active but won't start in Sunday's playoff matchup against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Impact

Bridgewater is active despite having a finger injury, but he will serve as a backup for rookie Skylar Thompson. He likely isn't well enough to start, but the team lacks depth at the position and needs him as a security blanket. He obviously provides no value for anyone playing DFS in the playoffs.

Teddy Bridgewater (knee, finger) questionable for Sunday

Teddy Bridgewater (knee, right finger) was limited in practice all week long. He is officially listed as questionable for Wild Card Weekend versus the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Impact

If active, Bridgewater will back up Skylar Thompson after Tua Tagovailoa (head) was ruled out for the third consecutive week. He's not on the fantasy radar.
