Detroit Lions QB Jeff Driskel completed 27-of-46 passes for 269 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 10 against the Chicago Bears in place of the injured QB Matthew Stafford (back).
Huddle Up: Driskel had a fair day, but he isn't someone you'll want to rely upon in standard fantasy leagues if he gets another start in place of Stafford. He might not be a bad low-cost DFS option, however, in Week 11 at home against Dallas. Again, that's assuming Stafford isn't healthy enough to play.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel took snaps at wide receiver Tuesday, Aug. 13, at the request of head coach Zac Taylor, according to Jay Morrison of The Athletic. 'I'm still competing at quarterback,' Driskel said. 'That's what I want to be. That's what I think I can be. But I just want to show that I can add value to this team in other ways and show that I want to contribute and can contribute.'
Huddle Up: Driskel is in competition with fourth-round pick Ryan Finley to be Andy Dalton's backup at quarterback. The Bengals seem to be trying to make Driskel their own variation of New Orleans Saints utilityman Taysom Hill, but even the original didn't have any predictable fantasy value.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel went 12-of-24 for 95 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Week 17 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was sacked four times but ran for 13 yards on two carries.
Huddle Up: Injuries to A.J. Green and later to Tyler Boyd did not help his cause, but Driskel proved to be pretty much what most people thought he was in his first extended opportunity at NFL playing time following the season-ending injury to Andy Dalton back in Week 12. Assuming he remains on the roster in 2019, he'll go back to clipboard duty.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel went 13-for-19 for 133 yards and two touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns in Week 16. He also rushed for 21 yards on five carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Driskel has been held to under 200 yards in each of his last three games but does have four touchdowns and only one interception during that span. He should not be a starting option next week against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel completed just 14-of-33 passes for 130 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 15 against the Oakland Raiders and he rushed for 32 yards.
Huddle Up: Driskel didn't do much, but all he really needed to do was hand it to Joe Mixon and he did the rest. Driskel shouldn't be on anyone's fantasy radar heading into Week 16 in Cleveland.
