Bills' Matt Barkley: Sidles into No. 2 role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barkley's teammate Josh Allen had a full week of practice this week and has been deemed fit to start Sunday against the Jaguars.

Barkley lit it up against the Jets in Week 10 ahead of the Bills' bye, but the future of this franchise lies in Allen's right arm so he'll step aside for the rookie, even though if the Bills had one win-at-all-costs game for one week, Barkely surprisingly might give them a better chance at winning given how comfortable he looked with the offsense. Withe Derek Anderson unable to return from a concussion this week, Barkley is the clear-cut No. 2 should anything happen to the rookie against the Jaguars' still-dangerous defense.

Bills' Matt Barkley: Eyeing No. 2 role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barkley's teammate Josh Allen (elbow) will put in a full practice Monday and is on track to start the Bills' Week 12 game against the Jaguars, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.

Barkley opened plenty of eyes with a surprise two-touchdown, no-interception performance in the Week 10 win over the Jets, but Allen is the future of the 3-7 Bills and coach Sean McDermott wants to get the rookie as much time on the field as possible. Allen could always suffer a setback, while at the very least Barkley looks like he's quickly leapfrogged Nathan Peterman (since waived) and Derek Anderson (concussion) to find a relatively permanent home on the depth chart.

Bills' Matt Barkley: Set to turn keys over to Josh Allen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Despite Barkley's impressive performance against the Jets on Sunday, head coach Sean McDermott said Monday that quarterback Josh Allen (elbow) will return to the starting lineup when healthy.

Few predicted the kind of success Barkley would find against the Jets in a game that marked the quarterback's first live action since he was with the Bears in 2016. However, Buffalo's top priority is developing its prized rookie, and it's now clear Barkley's one-game renaissance won't deter the team from its long-term plan. While Barkley likely has done enough to establish himself as the clear No. 2 option over Nathan Peterman and Derek Anderson (concussion), he'll only have fantasy value going forward if Allen is forced to miss any more games. With Buffalo on bye Week 11, Allen has roughly two more weeks to bounce back from his elbow injury. McDermott indicated Monday that Allen has already resumed a throwing regimen and is making daily progress in his recovery.

Bills' Matt Barkley: Leads 41-point outburst in Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barkley completed 15 of 25 passes for 232 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 41-10 win over the Jets.

Barkley proved to be an immediate upgrade over Nathan Peterman, hitting Robert Foster for a 47-yard gain on the game's first play. He later found eligible left tackle Dion Dawkins for a seven-yard touchdown in the second quarter and hit Zay Jones for an eight-yard score in the third. In addition to frustrating owners who streamed the Jets defense this week, Barkley likely earned himself a shot at retaining Buffalo's starting quarterback job coming out of the Week 11 bye.

Bills' Matt Barkley: Gets Week 10 starting nod
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barkley will start Sunday's game against the Jets.

With both Josh Allen (elbow) and Derek Anderson (concussion) already ruled out, Barkley will leap Nathan Peterman on the depth chart after the latter's career-long struggles continued in the 41-9 loss to the Bears in Week 9. Barkley, who will make his first NFL start since 2016, posted an unsightly 8:14 TD:INT while completing under 60 percent of his passes in seven games for the Bears that season. Even in the deepest of leagues, Barkley is makes for a difficult fantasy play given his lack of prior NFL success and dearth of weapons.
