Denver Broncos QB Jeff Driskel came on in relief of an injured Drew Lock (shoulder) and finished 18-of-34 for 256 yards and two touchdowns with one interception in Week 2 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Driskel has turned himself into a capable backup NFL quarterback and flashed at times when called upon, and it's no small feat to do what he did in this game against such a quality defense. Given that Lock was seen in a sling after his exit, it's likely Driskel will need to start multiple games for the Broncos. He should be a decent superflex option for however long he is needed, but he shouldn't be starting in most fantasy leagues in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Detroit Lions QB Jeff Driskel (hamstring) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Nov. 30. QB Joe Callahan was signed to the practice squad.
Huddle Up: David Blough will now take over as the Lions starting QB with Matthew Stafford still sidelined by a back injury. Blough is an option only in two-QB leagues.

Detroit Lions QB David Blough will be the starting quarterback for the Lions in Week 13. QB Jeff Driskel (hamstring) will serve as the No. 2 quarterback during the game.
Huddle Up: Blough will be making his NFL debut this week because of Driskel's hamstring injury. He probably will not be asked to throw a lot, which will hurt the fantasy value of Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones. Bo Scarbrough should receive plenty of carries and can be at least a flex option in leagues. Blough should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Detroit Lions QB Jeff Driskel (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 27, and is considered questionable for the game Thursday, Nov. 28, against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Driskel would be a very low-end QB2 in the tough matchup if at full health. Fantasy managers in nearly all formats should be able to find another option this week.

Detroit Lions QB Jeff Driskel (hamstring) said Tuesday, Nov. 26, he's progressing toward a return to health. 'Yeah, it's definitely gotten better each and every day,' Driskel said. 'That's just a testament to the guys in the training room - all of those guys that are here all hours of the day working with us.
'Yeah, so just doing what you can to get your body right and be out there. That's part of the game and that's part of this league is getting your body good to go each and every week.'
Huddle Up: The Lions haven't yet signed another quarterback ahead of Thursday's game against the Chicago Bears, leaving David Blough as the only other QB on the roster other than the injured Matthew Stafford. TE Logan Thomas is the Lions' emergency quarterback. Driskel will be a low-end QB2 in the tough matchup if able to take the field.
