Charlie Whitehurst maintains third string spot
QB Charlie Whitehurst completed his only pass attempt for 12 yards against the Rams. He has completed all six of his pass attempts through two games for 51 yards. He is third on the depth chart behind Zach Mettenberger and ahead of Alex Tanney.
Whitehurst has played as expected as a solid third string QB competing against third team defenses. Despite his solid play he is still feeling some heat from the fourth string QB Alex Tanney who has been equally impressive late in preseason games. Charlie isn't on anyone's fantasy radar. He probably wouldn't offer any fantasy value even in the event of Mettenberger being traded or Marcus Maritoa being taken off the field. Right now he is simply battling Tanney for third on the depth chart.
