The Lowdown: The Impressive Teddy Bridgewater & Miami Running Back on the Bubble

Teddy Bridgewater

From Vikings.com:

The essay pointed out that Bridgewater led all rookie QBs in wins (six), completion percentage (64.4), passing yards per game in starts (230.8) and passer rating (85.3). The “mind-blowing” component is the final component, which is the fifth-highest passer rating by a rookie with at least eight starts since 1990, behind Robert Griffin III (102.4), Russell Wilson (100.0), Ben Roethlisberger (98.1), and Matt Ryan (87.7).

Teddy Bridgewater will be one of my favorite options when it comes to utilizing the late round quarterback strategy. Heading into his second year with Norv Turner’s offense and it doesn’t hurt that Adrian Peterson is back, along with the addition of Mike Wallace.

Bridgewater’s rookie season had two different sides. In his first six games he was very inefficient. He struggled just as any rookie quarterback would do.

From Week 9 till the end of the season, his efficiency rapidly turned around, including completing 72 percent of his passes over the last five games.

Bridgewater’s median projection for 4pt PTD/game would put him at 246 points, right in the QB12 – QB15 range. Not a bad return considering how late you acquire him in your leagues. Fantasy Douche has more on the impact of Mike Wallace to the Vikings.

Damien Williams

From ESPN.com:

Williams was another quality, undrafted find last year by Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey. He made the roster out of training camp and finished with 122 rushing yards on 36 carries. Williams also returned five kickoffs for 102 yards. But the Dolphins improved their running back depth this offseason with the addition of fifth-round pick Jay Ajayi, who is expected to make the 53-man roster. With starter Lamar Miller also locked in, that leaves just one spot left at running back. Williams and LaMichael James could be fighting for one roster spot. That’s going to be a tight race that could come down to preseason games.

Damien Williams was UDFA last season out of the University of Oklahoma. Fantasy Douche believed that Williams has Arian Foster upside, unfortunately being buried on the depth chart last season didn’t help things. Despite Jay Ajay’s injury woes, the Dolphins invested a fifth round pick on him and they believe that he will be the one backing up Lamar Miller, along with pushing him for touches. The 25-year-old LaMichael James hasn’t had much run in the NFL, playing only 17 games since 2012, while rushing for 193 yards. Matthew Freedman goes more in depth on Damien Williams using his workhorse metric.
