Buffalo Bills QB Matt Barkley went 15-for-25 for 232 yards and two touchdowns against the New York Jets in Week 10.
Huddle Up: Barkley played well this week but may not receive another start with Josh Allen working his way back from his elbow injury. There is a good chance that Allen starts in Week 12 but probably can be avoided in most leagues.

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen (elbow) has been ruled out of the Week 10 game. QB Matt Barkley is expected to be the starting quarterback against the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: Allen is working his way back from the elbow injury but is probably a week away from returning. Barkley should not be a starting option in any league.

Chicago Bears QB Matt Barkley completed 10 of his 14 pass attempts for 125 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 17 game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Huddle Up: Barkley showed some glimpses of brilliance subbing for the injured Jay Cutler and Brian Hoyer down the stretch, but this was a terrible finish. His future in this league is likely as a backup, and he doesn't look to have much fantasy value going into 2017.

Chicago Bears QB Matt Barkley completed 30 of his 43 pass attempts for 362 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions in the Week 15 game against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Barkley has two 300-yard performances in the past four games, and he has at least one touchdown pass in three of his past four. The one poor game was a snow-marred win against the San Francisco 49ers. He isn't quite a QB1, but he is a strong QB2 fantasy option in leagues using two starting signal callers.

Chicago Bears QB Matt Barkley completed 20 of his 32 pass attempts for 212 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 14 loss against the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: Barkley didn't make any mistakes, which is a refreshing change from a Chicago quarterback position which usually sees several. But he didn't do much to help fantasy owners, either, and that won't change down the stretch this season.

Chicago Bears QB Matt Barkley will start Week 12's game against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Barkley should not be viewed as a viable option in any format and his presence under center is likely to negatively impact the fantasy value of all Chicago offensive players not named Jordan Howard. In addition, it probably wouldn't be a bad idea to stream the Tennessee defense.

Chicago Bears QB Matt Barkley has impressed the coaching staff with his poise and intelligence, but offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said it has been a challenge to build a game plan Barkley will be comfortable with for Week 12 against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: As if making his first start of the year wasn't tough enough, Barkley will take over an offense missing several of its top offensive weapons. Avoid him in all formats and consider streaming Tennessee's defense.

Chicago Bears QB Matt Barkley will be the starting quarterback in Week 12 if QB Jay Cutler (shoulder) is ruled out.
Huddle Up: Barkley has limited experience in the NFL and should not be used in any fantasy leagues. He likely will also hurt the fantasy value of the Bears receivers if he starts, but Jordan Howard should be an attractive starting option.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Matt Barkley has been acquired by the Arizona Cardinals Friday, Sept. 4, for a conditional late-round draft pick.
Huddle Up: No likely fantasy implications for either team save for the unlikely event that either Carson Palmer or Sam Bradford goes down. Wait ...
Posted: 2/12/2014 12:02 am UTC
Philadelphia Eagles QB Matt Barkley will need to have a strong offseason for the team to believe he can be a trustworthy backup quarterback next season.
Huddle Up: With Michael Vick all but officially gone, look for Philly to sign a veteran FA or possibly even spend a late-round draft pick on a QB to challenge Barkley behind starter Nick Foles.
