Player Outlook
Siemian is expected to be the backup quarterback behind Justin Fields in Chicago. Siemian has proven to be a serviceable thrower throughout his time in the league, but he's never been a quality Fantasy option and certainly would remain unexciting if he found playing time with the Bears. Siemian is no better than a late-round pick in two-QB leagues.

  • Bears' Trevor Siemian: Solid performance

    Siemian completed seven of 13 passes for 89 yards and two touchdowns in the Bears' 19-14 win over the Chiefs on Saturday. Siemian entered the game after Justin Fields and the starters finished their work for the day. The veteran backup threw scoring passes to Trestan Ebner and Dazz Newsome against the Chiefs' backup defenders. It's likely that Siemian will be the No. 2 quarterback for Chicago going into the regular season.

  • Bears' Trevor Siemian: Joining Bears QB room

    Siemian signed a two-year deal with the Bears on Thursday, according to his agent, Mike McCartney. Siemian spent the 2021 season primarily as the backup in New Orleans. However, he did start for a string of five games in the middle of the season, during which he completed 57.2 percent of his passes for 1,083 yards, nine touchdowns and three interceptions. While Siemian won't have the opportunity to start in Chicago barring an injury to Justin Fields, he has proven to be a solid backup and viable spot starter throughout his five-year career. Nick Foles also remains in the picture, but he was often a healthy scratch when the rest of the quarterback room was healthy in 2021.

  • Saints' Trevor Siemian: Wins in relief

    Siemian completed nine of 15 passes for 71 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 30-20 win over the Falcons. Siemian was forced into the game after Taysom Hill (foot) exited with a foot injury in the first half. The Saints relied heavily on Alvin Kamara and the run game, though Siemian was effective when called upon. He led the offense to the end zone twice, throwing for scores from 13 and five yards away. After serving as the backup and making spot starts in New Orleans for the 2021 season, Siemian will hit free agency this offseason and will likely look for another backup role around the league.

  • Saints' Trevor Siemian: Removed from COVID-19 list

    The Saints activated Siemian (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Likewise for Taysom Hill (illness), allowing the Saints to have a more desirable Hill-Siemian setup at the top of the quarterback depth chart heading into Sunday's game against the Panthers. Siemian will serve as Hill's backup moving forward, while Week 16 starter Ian Book slides back down to third in the pecking order.

  • Saints' Trevor Siemian: Unavailable Monday

    The Saints didn't activate Siemian (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list, making him ineligible to play Monday versus the Dolphins, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Taysom Hill (illness) also wasn't activated from the COVID-19 list, leaving Ian Book to handle his first NFL start and practice squad call-up Blake Bortles as the Saints' Week 16 backup quarterback. Siemian's next chance to be available to the offense arrives Sunday versus the Panthers.

  • Saints' Trevor Siemian: Bound for COVID-19 list

    Siemian tested positive for the coronavirus and will be placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list later Thursday, Jeff Duncan of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. The Saints are dealing with a minor COVID-19 outbreak at the moment, as Siemian is set to join tight ends Adam Trautman and Juwan Johnson on the list, while head coach Sean Payton and multiple executives in the organization have also tested positive in recent days. If Siemian isn't able to test out of NFL's COVID-19 protocol prior to Monday's game against the Dolphins, rookie Ian Book would serve as the backup to starting quarterback Taysom Hill.

  • Saints' Trevor Siemian: Headed for backup role

    Siemian will serve as the Saints' backup quarterback Thursday against the Cowboys with New Orleans set to give Taysom Hill his first start of the season, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports. Head coach Sean Payton stopped short of saying the Saints would be making a change at quarterback Week 13, acknowledging that he wanted to see how Hill -- who is nursing a foot injury -- fared at Wednesday's practice before naming a starter. The fact that Hill doesn't carry a designation into Thursday's contest confirms that he'll be ready to make his first start of the season, ending Siemian's four-game tenure atop the depth chart. After coming on in relief of Jameis Winston (knee) in Week 8 and helping lead New Orleans to an upset win over Tampa Bay, Siemian submitted an 0-4 record as a starter while completing 57.6 percent of his attempts for 6.4 yards per attempt and an 8:3 TD:INT. Hill likely won't offer much of an improvement, if any, over Siemian when it comes to downfield throwing, but he's proven to be a more accurate passer during his career and is a significantly bigger threat as a runner.

  • Saints' Trevor Siemian: Works with No. 2 offense

    Siemian was working with the Saints' No. 2 offense during Monday's practice session, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Siemian had served as the starting quarterback in each of the last four games, but he struggled in Thursday's loss to Buffalo. He completed 17 of 29 passes for 163 yards, a touchdown and an interception while rushing three times for three yards on Thanksgiving Day. Taysom Hill has been dealing with a plantar fascia injury recently but worked with the first-team offense Monday.

  • Saints' Trevor Siemian: Poor Thanksgiving performance

    Siemian completed 17 of 29 passes for 163 yards with one touchdown and one interception during Thursday's 31-6 loss to Buffalo. Siemian yet again led a lethargic offensive effort that barely threatened Buffalo's strong pass defense and headed into into the contest minus top running backs Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram. Meanwhile, Taysom Hill -- who has been managing a foot issue -- was active and served as the lone backup quarterback Thursday, but didn't take a snap. Next up for New Orleans is a Week 13 home matchup against the Cowboys.

  • Saints' Trevor Siemian: Mixed performance in loss

    Siemian completed 22 of 40 passes for 214 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Saints' 40-29 loss to the Eagles on Sunday. He also rushed twice for 16 yards and another score. The journeyman signal-caller's proverbial carriage turned into somewhat of a pumpkin Sunday, although Siemian's four total touchdowns were certainly welcome from a fantasy perspective. However, from a football perspective, Siemian may have hurt as much as he helped, as one of his two interceptions was returned for a pick-six by Darius Slay, while two of his touchdown passes and his rushing score came in a fourth quarter the Saints entered trailing 33-7. Nevertheless, with three consecutive multi-touchdown efforts and Sunday's two picks his first pair this season, Siemian seems a virtual lock to be under center again for the Thanksgiving night showdown with the Bills in Week 12.

  • Saints' Trevor Siemian: Tosses two touchdowns

    Siemian completed 19 of 34 passes for 298 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 23-21 loss to the Titans. Siemian drew his second consecutive start and had his best showing of the season. He averaged 8.8 yards per attempt, in large part thanks to completing six passes of 20 yards or more. Siemian also threw for multiple touchdowns for the second consecutive game, as he connected with Tre'Quan Smith and Marquez Callaway for scores of 11 and 15 yards, respectively. Despite some chatter of Taysom Hill seeing an increased role, he earned only two pass attempts, which allowed Siemian to top 30 pass attempts for the first time on the campaign. Based on this effort, Siemian can be expected to remain the starter in Week 11 against Philadelphia.

  • Saints' Trevor Siemian: Named starter again

    Siemian will start Sunday's game in Tennessee, but coach Sean Payton did suggest Friday that the Saints will have packages for Taysom Hill as well, John DeShazier of the Saints' official site reports. Hill took just three direct snaps (and 17 offensive snaps overall) in the Week 9 loss to Atlanta, but that was his first game back in action after spending three weeks in concussion protocol. He could have a larger role this weekend, though Siemian figures to get most of the pass attempts after completing 25 of 41 throws for 249 yards and two touchdowns last week. He'll be facing a better defense Sunday, and possibly with RB Alvin Kamara (knee) on the sideline.

  • Saints' Trevor Siemian: Nearly completes comeback

    Siemian completed 25 of 41 pass attempts for 249 yards with two touchdowns during Sunday's 27-25 loss to Atlanta. Getting his first start of the season with Jameis Winston (knee) injured, Siemian had a quiet start to the game but nearly pulled the Saints out of an 18-point hole in a matter of minutes during the fourth quarter. In fact, the soon-to-be 30-year-old led a go-ahead touchdown drive with just over a minute left in regulation only for the Falcons to come back the other way with a game-winning field goal. While it's not certain that he will remain the starter over Taysom Hill going forward, Siemian attempted more passes than Winston did in any single game this year, and his matchups going forward will be more favorable than Atlanta, which entered the week ranked seventh in fewest yards allowed per pass attempt.

  • Saints' Trevor Siemian: Confirmed for Week 9 start

    Saints head coach Sean Payton confirmed that Siemian will start at quarterback Sunday against the Falcons. Siemian and Taysom Hill (concussion) were both candidates to start after No. 1 quarterback Jameis Winston (knee) suffered a season-ending ACL tear in the Saints' Week 8 win over the Buccaneers, but Payton ultimately settled on Siemian, who backed up Winston in the victory. Siemian proved to be a capable game manager against a tough Tampa Bay squad, but his numbers (16-for-29 for 155 yards and a touchdown, two carries for two yards) weren't anything special from a fantasy perspective. Payton added that Hill will be active Sunday, so Siemian could be at risk of losing some snaps in the red zone, given that Hill provides a more formidable rushing threat. Moreover, Siemian will need to perform well against Atlanta to ensure he retains the starting gig beyond Sunday, as Payton appeared to suggest that the team's quarterback situation could be evaluated on a week-to-week basis.

  • Saints' Trevor Siemian: Set to start Sunday

    Siemian is expected to start Sunday's game against the Falcons over Taysom Hill (concussion), Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Siemian played well in the aftermath of Winston's ACL tear last week, completing 16 of 19 passes for one touchdown while leading the Saints to a victory over the Buccaneers. Hill is attempting to return from a concussion and hasn't seen game action since Week 5, which may have played a role in the team's decision at quarterback for Week 9.

  • Saints' Trevor Siemian: May start Sunday

    Siemian and Taysom Hill (concussion) are the candidates to start in place of Jameis Winston (knee) on Sunday against the Falcons and beyond, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports. Following Winston's season-ending ACL tear, the Saints will move forward with a new starting quarterback, but a decision has yet to be made. Hill returned to practice this week for the first time since suffering a concussion back in Week 5, being limited Wednesday before logging every practice rep Thursday. But it's likely that Hill hasn't been cleared to play via an independent neurologist, which also may be holding up an announcement from coach Sean Payton. If Siemian ultimately ends up getting the call this weekend, he'll be doing so after stepping in for Winston this past Sunday and leading the Saints to victory over the Bucs en route to 16-for-29 passing for 159 yards and one touchdown.

  • Trevor Siemian: Released by New Orleans

    The Saints cut Siemian on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. The Saints are rolling with Ian Book as the primary backup to Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill -- who will both see action during Week 1. Siemian has appeared in just one NFL game since 2017 and will likely return to New Orleans as a practice squad player if he clears waivers.

  • Saints' Trevor Siemian: Brief preseason appearance

    Siemian completed four of eight passes for 59 yards during Monday's preseason victory over Jacksonville. Siemian got some run after not getting any action in the preseason opener when Jameis Winston, Taysom Hill and Ian Book shared all of the snaps. However, with head coach Sean Payton reportedly looking to name a starting quarterback before Saturday's preseason finale against Arizona, it's possible that both of the top candidates in Winston and Hill could be done for the preseason. Siemian, a 30-year-old pocket passer, would subsequently figure to split snaps with Book this weekend, though it's clear he has nonexistent rushing upside compared to the dual-threat rookie with 4.59 speed.

  • Trevor Siemian: Waived by New Orleans

    Siemian has been waived by the Saints. With Drew Brees (ribs) back from IR, Siemian is the odd man out, while Taysom Hill and Jameis Winston will remain in the team's backup QB mix.
